Got to get this back feeling better so Morpheus is calling (my Bed) (also known as the Greek god of Dreams)


I've heard that as "Morpheus is descending." I know little about Greek mythology and Morpheus,
so I have no idea which is better. ;-)

Edit: A quick googling of "Morpheus" doesn't help, so I guess either is acceptable.

(I wasn't trying to correct you - just wanted to participate.)

I'd love to own one, but I can't, I do have $200, but it's on My credit card only.

Vic, you have much better things to spend your limited money on.

(Which is not to say Sue doesn't need the money for good reasons as well.)


Both true.

This photo was taken very long ago, as I'm sure you can tell. This is me with my mom
in our back yard in San Francisco.

Anyone else willing to post their baby/toddler photos?

Yesterday I saw a "Judge Judy" TV episode.
Two people disputing of their dogs.
One of the dog owner had walking the dog to the "bathroom" and apparently the other dog was bitten bad during the incident.
Who's guilty?

(Rather funny that Americans call it bathroom even for dogs)


Of course it would depend on other circumstances. Were the dogs on a leash? Was one
dog allowed to get too close to the other? Where were they - on public or private
property? Et cetera.

The Rachel Maddow Show


I just started watching her recently. I have decided that it's okay that I didn't watch
during the Obama years, because we didn't really need her as much as we're going
to need her and her kind for the next four years.

I got a generic-looking letter from the Arbitron radio rating company. (At least, I think that's who it was.
It was a long time ago.) It was something that looked like junk mail and I'm sure a lot of other people who
might have received the same mailing probably threw it away without opening it. But I opened mine and,
surprise, there were two actual, real dollar bills inside and a letter asking me to participate in whatever
it was. There was also a promise to send more money when they received my competed response. And I
did receive more money, as promised.

I still wonder to this day how many dollar bills were thrown out as unopened junk mail.

Nope. :-(

Credit cards can be used to pay in many ways, most notably, with PayPal. I have a
PayPal account so anyone with a credit/debit card can send me money.

Just sayin'.

Shortly after take-off on an outbound, evening Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Boston, the lead flight attendant nervously made the following painful announcement in her lovely Irish brogue:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I'm so very sorry, but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up by our catering service. I don't know how this has happened, but we have 103 passengers on board, and unfortunately, we received only 40 dinner meals. I truly apologize for this mistake and inconvenience."

When the muttering of the passengers had died down, she continued, "Anyone who is kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat, will receive free and unlimited drinks for the duration of our 10 hour flight.

Her next announcement came about 2 hours later:
"If anyone is hungry, we still have 40 dinners available."

Without knowing enough about Chromebooks, I bought one. I wanted a laptop and
this 15" model was cheap. Now I have buyer's remorse. (I don't need a laptop and
I don't need the extra debt.) Therefore, if anyone is interested I am selling my
very slightly used Chromebook plus a 2-year care plan for $200. I'll ship it to you if
you want it. Here are some details:


And here's a little pro/con article about Chromebooks:

Wonderful duck photos, Bob. Reminded me of this one I took for a photography class a very long time ago,
before digital became the norm.

I keep thinking about signing up to make automatic, monthly donations to several charities. I keep
procrastinating because I can't afford to donate to all of them (animal and veteran charities, mostly).
So I've come up with a sort of solution. I'm going to choose one charity a month and donate to that
one. Once I've won the lottery I'll give them some of that money. ;-)

Just thought I'd share in case someone else is having the same thoughts.

Edit: By the way, DUH! Right?

A Chromebook is a laptop running the Linux-based Chrome OS as its operating system.


I wonder if it will run the Linux-based BOINC. What do you think?
