    I had dinner tonight at Steak n Shake – 5 way chili.  Then I wen to B&N to check out the books and have a cookie and a cup of coffee.  I found a book that looked like a new one in the Nautical section and started reading.  It is about a guy here in Grand Rapids that had severe heart disease – a plugged LAD and this grew into much more serious complications.  I got half way through the book.  I finish it some time later.

    The weather people were right!  Last night I looked out the window at 10:00  and it was raining plus warm and then again at 10:30 and it was snowing real hard.  The winds picked up soon after and raged throughout the day today.  Somehow I did not get the weather outlook blogline posted so I published it tonight.

    I am in the process of learning  a new software program that does microwave path analysis, loss budget and many other wonderful things relating to designing microwave systems.  My first analysis was for a shot in Wisconsin – for confidentiality reasons more details cannot be revealed.  It was fun and I compared the results to my own freeware program and they were nearly the same.

    I sold the urls charleswmoore.com & .net to another Charles W Moore.  I kept the .org and .us urls for myself.  It is all part of cutting back for the impending retirement.  Marc let me use space on his server for my most important sites like this one.  With the fall of the stock market I will have to be very careful about spending as SAM’s medical insurance has take a drastic turn for the worse.  There will not be a lot of extra money.
