  • Weather: The New Breed

    Posted on January 24th, 2017 cwmoore No comments

    I have been meaning to post the link of a new breed of interactive weather maps that has lots of applications for pilots, sailors, farmers and everyday users.  So here it is in all it’s linked glory.  The only reason for me to do this is so i will not forget where to go to get it 🙂

  • New Day Dawning

    Posted on January 24th, 2017 cwmoore No comments

    The day dawned at 0800 when the pool guy awoke me banging around the pool.  I’ll bet he was surprised to see me laying on the back porch couch.  As is my habit, when I awake around 3 -4 AM I come back to the couch and read or just go back to sleep.  It is  toss up as to which but after a long trip I usually go back to sleep.

    The rain crows are out there cooing, like the doves of the North they have that coo’g sound that I like to try to imitate.  I used to be good at it but now something in my vocal cords do not allow the exact tones.  Too bad,  I used to be able to call them in much closer but now I am ignored just like a foreign bird.

    I just finished breakfast, my usual, and I just checked the motion detectors to see if there was any activity on the two I have set to take pictures of any trespassers. There was nothing seen.  One of the light bulbs was burnt out so it needs to be replaced.  I think I will change it to  CF type so it lasts longer – they do last longer if you turn them on and leave them on for 15 minutes before turning off.

    Todays agenda – well, I had one yesterday but this morning I forgot what it was.  I do want to go to Harbor Freight just to see what they have.  I have a few internet chores to do too.  Sounds like a full day to me! Moore later
