No television, no endless political yammering! Hmmm ... bring on that EMP, I say ... it might clear things up.

Yikes! Pretty drastic, that! Verbal tete tete? Vocalization? Oh lordy, is that what all these mutants have been doing around their primitive campfires? Back to the dark ages!

Bring it on!

Soon, Kemosabi, soon. Wednesday Heathrow, overnight O'Hare, Thursday home.



We saw a highly controversial exhibit at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate today (before having jellied eels on the seafront) and had a pleasant drive back past hops nearing harvest, apple orchards, and huge greenhouses full of organic crops. Naps this afternoon and sharing curries with the kids tonight.



Campfires some other time.

Oh, and here's a ponder for those who still call their stick and brick 'home'.

Do you get a bit grouchy on your way home, and is this phenomena common to all who wander? (Or is this just my family???)

We have ours out and glowing. They are attractive and put off a nice golden glow. If that's all it did it would be worth it. But I suspect they do more. Nothing scientific, but that doesn't matter to us. Today eggs are good for us. Yesterday, not so much. Tomorrow who knows. I like eggs and eat them often, with bacon of course.

So much for being "informed". I still did not see unbiased research data to support the concept. OK, file my unwashed thinking under the skeptics category. The one benefit that got my feathers bent was the claim to eradicate electromagnetic radiation (EM). Seems that the promotors of salt lamps assume such radiation is thwarted by a cube of salt that is warmed by a tiny bulb (environmentally small bulb at that). Were it only that simple!

Yeah, I'm just agitating here, for the heck of it. Those who swear by the various benefits will take the opposite view.

The aspic is basically a gelled clear salty (sea?) water. The eels themselves are like small fish steaks, crosswise cut into inch thick slices with the skin on. The meat is white, soft, and fine textured, sort of sweetly salty. The skin is softer, almost gelatinous.

My little pot of half a dozen pieces was enough for a good seaside snack. Crazy about them? No, I guess not, but I liked them well enough to repeat some other time. Maybe with a skinful of likker, I might feel differently.... Possum?

I have a good idea of what I want and the only hurdle is getting rid of all this "stuff" and the S&B to begin the journey. Just little ol' me doing it all. And perfecting procrastination does speed that process.

YES... it was rough going back "home".... missing the mutants and looking forward to w**k (NOT).

Cleaned the Bryce dirt off the Jeep Saturday...now its on the drive for a little while. Sad sad indeed.

Mowed grass Sunday oh how fun that was...

If only we could leave now for full time... we are ready.

Yep, Ken, it helps having a "motivator". Kate keeps pushing me to get all my junk given away, sold or thrown away. We're making progress. Should have everything disposed of and cleaned out by the end of January or mid February. It's hard to keep at it, but just keep that Rainbow in mind and then you can pack the next box. You can do it!!!!

Knee replacements later in Sept will set me back for a while, but I am keeping my eyes on the prize. 😉 Keep YOUR eyes on that Rainbow prize, too.

Official Report of PNW Mini-C

Yesterday Sena and I drove to Issaquah, WA to visit Papaw Steve. Mary Ann was away on a girls weekend and we missed not seeing her. It was really nice to get some mutant hugs!

Sadly a bad pic commemorates a fun event. Neither Steve or I had a selfie stick. That explains the strained look on my face as I tried to stretch my arm far enough to get us both in. Sena declined an invitation to join us.
