  • Florence of Arabia

    Posted on December 10th, 2009 cwmoore No comments

    Just finished the book I bought on Amazon titled “Florence of Arabia” by Christopher Buckley.  It is an easy read, fast moving book about a couple of fictional middle east countries, cabals, women repressed and hero’s and heroine’s.  I enjoyed it and found it only because of Mitch Daniels recommendations – Thank’s Mitch.  This is a change of pace book for me with decent plot and superficial but entertaining coverage of the middle east women’s plight.

    It was extremely windy yesterday, stated warm and ended up in the single digits today.  There is snow on the ground and the wind is still 13 kts from 250°.  A deep, almost a record, low passed and my barometer registered below 29.10″.  I brought the truck up the hill yesterday late so it would be available if more snow arrived than expected.  I picked up the tractor that I had taken in for repair and put it away for the winter with all Preventative Maintenance being performed.

    I removed the Widget Zemantha yesterday.  I did not like the new Privacy Statement.  Now I am back to plain text and the excruciatingly slow method of adding visual impact.  When you install it you get it on both IE & FF but not on Chrome and Safari.  I have made Chrome my default browser as it is about 4X faster than FF and a little faster than IE.  I have 5 of the popular browsers installed so I can check the various websites I have for proper rendering.  IE has some quirks that I wish Microsoft would get rid of.  All the rest seem CSS compliant.
