OMG! Such posturing...

Tara's terrarium was moved to the counter beside the stove when the power went out. There she has stayed without complaint. Warmed by the continuous boiling kettle of water. Nibbling on the occasional errant cricket. Today... today, I get this... Tarantula, in defense posture - Aphonopelma

...when I am adding water to her bowl... guess she might be tired of this too.

Almost 12 days to the minute...

... municipal electricity has returned (for the moment) to the Flying Pig Ranch. We rejoice! Thank you Kenergy.

Hi, my name is Papa and I am an electriholic...

... It has been ...er, lemme look at the paper calendar... uh, 12 days... without municipal utility high grade, uncut, pure 'tricity' ... yeah, I am jonesing... this lame portable generator stuff is just a alternating alternative to the real main-line, high tension BUZZ that I have become accustomed to. FLAT! Can hardly carry a sine wave.

Please don't divorce...

Free Tea... to pilgrims ... giving grace.

Jesus said, "Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me . . . and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple – truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward." Matthew 10:40 & 42

Nothing I dislike more than...

... turning the generator on. All it does is drink fuel and produce too little electricity (Addicted, starting a 12 step, 3 phase, alternating current program - progress notes to follow.)

Only reason really worth while... chilling the peanutbutter cookie dough. Just wish I could follow Grandma Lo's sage advise... fresh peanutbutter cookies and a cold beer. (If memory serves it would have been an Ol' Milwaukee.)

Slackware 12.x and KDE?

Nothing has changed from the days of Slack 8.x and FVWM... I still cannot afford KDE... so now it is Xfce, ahhhh


I have to start getting some of this out of my head... so I will engage in some microblogging until there is room for some more formal substantial thoughts...
