Columbus had only 0.82 inches of rain last night - we missed most of the storms until about 9:30ish. It looks like Madison got hardly any rain while Milwaukee got clobbered with more then 2 inches.
You know you are getting old when you are looking for doggie diapers and joke to the young dude at Mounds and you comment "If this is too large for Blake maybe I can just use it in 10 years" and I think the guy was taking me seriously.
Also I use to joke about when you get old and you drop something on the floor you look around for anything else you can pick up while you are down there. Now all of a sudden I see that it's actually not a joke at all.
And now it seems conversations among friends seem to turn to physical ailments and what drugs they are taking . . . like the old people always talked about. I remember when conversations about what drugs we were taking seemed a lot more entertaining.
I took DJs laptop into DUC Computer Repair in Columbus (right next to The Cage) and the guy seems good enough. Unlike Geek Squad who automatically say "We will first need to wipe the hard drive" this guy actually looked first. He charges $29 an hour. Looks like a software problem.
A few more photos from the Columbus Horse and Carriage Festival.
I wonder if I could ask Columbus Water and Light if they could twirl the water tower just a little so the park could see Columbus better?
There has been a mosquito buzzing me the last 2 days while at my computer. Never landing, just flying around. We had become buddies. I killed him just now. Seeing his cold lifeless body crumpled on my keyboard made me sad. Good bye little friend.
Having some time off I get to record all the news shows that catch my interest and review them as I eat my morning crumpets and tea. This morning I watched a new show called "COMBAT HOSPITAL". I had no idea what it was about as the title did not give me any clues. I bet the guy that came up with that title got a big bonus!
It's basically M*A*S*H in Afghanistan. Not a BAD show but I feel "been there done that". Perhaps for people that never saw M*A*S*H?? Did you know you can not get "China Beach" on DVD? What's up with that???
Another show I watched was on TNT called "Falling Sky's" staring Noah Wyle. I watched half and turned it off. It's sort of a family-style alien invasion. I'm still pissed off at SciFy Network for Deadwooding Stargate Universe. They just stop - no ending - CANCEL!!
The one show I'm REALLY looking forward too is Expedition Impossible which is a cross between Amazing Race and Mark Burnett's first reality challenge Eco-Challenge. This is must see TV for people who like adventure.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CAMELS LOL Check out this video!! Looks awesome.
Here is the full trailer!
Ten "stages", each of which has a series of "checkpoints". At each checkpoint, teams receive instructions on how to reach the next checkpoint. The last team in each stage to reach the final checkpoint is eliminated. If any member of a team quits, the team is eliminated.
The competition began in Merzouga and concluded in Marrakech, covering a course of around 2,000 miles including treks through the Sahara Desert and over the Atlas Mountains.
Each member of the first team to cross the finish line after completing the ten stages of the competition will receive USD$50,000 and a new Ford Explorer.
I wonder who the advertisers will be!
Have a great Wednesday!
