friday morning…

Tuesday afternoon when I left work, I had finished everything ! That’s unusual to have nothing online waiting. Yesterday I got enough new work to last me a couple weeks. So, unemployment is unlikely in the near future; which is good.

Wednesday I had a doctor appointment and again was reminded of the vital importance of loosing weight and exercising more. I agree whole heartedly, but my downfall is that I find it so easy to develop and maintain bad habits as opposed to good habits. Well, I won’t just give up, I will keep on keeping on. Yesterday I did the stairs 3 times at work and did 20 minutes on my elliptical trainer at home. I want to do the stairs 10 times today, that’s my goal for the day.

I’m transcribing a tape right now and doing some web surfing too; so let’s snag some links…

P2P lending

Kiva – Loans that change lives

This is a way for ordinary people to make small loans to small business entrepreneurs in the US and in other countries. I like the concept of individuals being able to lend to other individuals, bypassing the big business financial predators.

I was up bright and early to goto church, but was unable to motivate the others to get up. So, I web surfed instead…

The Ancient Order of the Culdees of Iona

Johannes Scotus Eriugena – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

List of Christian mystics – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of course you probably noticed “that’s a lot of stuff to read !” Ok, an explanation: no I didn’t read all this stuff this morning. Mostly I took a quick look and copied links to stuff that got my attention. LOL, I don’t actually know, but I suspect I have AD/HD. I’m interested in all sorts of stuff, and I get easily distracted from one thing to another. Anyway, I’ve read some of this stuff in the past, will read some in the future, some of it won’t get read. An additional note about the linkage on this blog: I don’t necessarily agree with everything on the linked sites. Of course, some I do, some I don’t. If I post the link the one thing you can be sure of is that it is something that got my attention, at least for the moment. So, now, let’s continue lurking and prowling the wicked, wonderful and wild WWW…

another web application…

I went to Barnes and Noble today and browsed around the books and magazines. I was reading some computer magazine and found and article about web applications. Buzzword was mentioned and I had not encountered that one before. So, when I got back home, I opened an account. It’s different from some other web apps that I have used; has a very vista like appearance, also saves to and opens from your hard drive. I don’t think you can use it to post directly to a blog; would be a nice feature to have. I am writing this on Buzzword but will cut and paste to post to my blog.

friday evening…

Today was a busy day, but I really did not make a lot of progress ! I went to get my blood drawn for labs, so that wasted about 2 hours. At work I did a lot of loose ends stuff but did not get a lot done otherwise. I gave some stuff to Heather to do, so that will help me some. There was lot’s of ice out today, hoping tomorrow will be nicer. Mike and Piglette came down for the weekend; they all went out shopping ! I told Sweetous and Pig to be careful in the stores ! LOL,  I always get uneasy when the women go to stores. So, now I’m just taking it easy listening to music and prowling the web…

Here is a nicely organized health & medical information site: OrganizedWisdom Health – Human Powered Health Search.

Cloudo – The Computer Evolved – this looks interesting, but doesn’t seem to be working yet; appears to be some sort of web desktop and applications set-up; sort of like think free or zoho perhaps ? It’s getting to be that you really don’t need to buy software for your computer because there is so much available via the web….

ATT00255

This picture was sent to me via email by Smitty. So, what do you see ?

You saw a couple in an intimate pose……………………. right?

Interestingly, research has shown that young children cannot identify the intimate couple because they do not have prior memory associated with such a scenario. What they will see, however, is the nine dolphins in the picture! So, I guess we’ve already proven you’re not a young innocent child.  Now, if it’s hard for you to find the dolphins within 6 seconds, your mind is so corrupted that you probably need help!    OK, here’s help: Look at the space between her right arm and her head, the tail is on her neck, follow it up. Look at her left hip, follow the shaded part down, it’s another one, and on his shoulder… OH, S U R E, you see them NOW !!!!!!

LOL ! It took me a while but I finally saw the dolphins !

Today was quite busy at work, so I’m just chilling right now, will go to bed soon. I did get a lot of stuff done though, so that is good !

I just added a page with some useful information for personal security, check it out  !

I have some books to give away at Book Mooch,, go check it out.
