Nothing doin Monday

By , January 14, 2008 7:09 pm

Whole lot of nothing going on today.

Up, fix coffee, check email and daily comics, cook breakfast, shower, sit and read, cook lunch, sit and read, take Cat to the dentist, sit in van and read till she gets out, come home after a quick stop at the store for her to get some sodas (yes, right after the trip to the dentist πŸ™„ ), load in some wood for the nights heat, sit and read and finish book, fix supper, sit down and check feeds and write this daily summery or whatever ya wanna call this, and thats pretty much the day.

Todays book was “In Spite of Thunder” by John Dickson Carr. Published in 1960, the copy I have is a first edition but sadly tis a library copy. Over all in good condition but with the usual stampings and torn out library card pockets. And it was quite a good read. It’s a Dr. Gideon Fell novel, a murder mystery set in Geneva and as usual with Carr the plot has several turns and twists.

Hope to be more active tomorrow. Arms and back are better today. May take another day off to recuperate then get back at it Wednesday. Got to get some more wood cut, split and in for the coming cold week and weekend. But that’s to worry about tomorrow. Now to find another book for the evening. πŸ˜‰

Talk about too much time on their hands. Beautiful job and all that but 8 months to make a mouse, right down to the bejeweled usb connector… 😯

Ford: Car owners are pirates if they distribute pictures of their own cars – Boing Boing

Just gotta love the corporate doublethink that some of these big companies practice. Another Monday morning display of major stupidity.

Come to think of it, I have a lot of Mr. Fords products rusting away in the field. I need to take pix, showing just how well their product ages (or doesn’t) and see if they will come after me for publishing them here on the blog. πŸ˜‰

Filmmakers use DMCA to go after negative review – Boing Boing

Can’t make a decent movie? No, problem, just sue the critic… πŸ‘Ώ

Now a LOT more folks know just how bad the movie is, and from the responses in comments there are a lot that will never go to see it because of this stupidity. Idiots…
