BMN Sleep Click

Good Morning

What the heck is a sleep click?

Hehehe, if you’ve done it you know. Sleep click is that involuntary finger flick on the mouse button or keyboard that sometimes happens when you have been at the computer for too long. You may have snapped back to alertness momentarily to see “Delete all? Y/N on the screen before nodding back off. I’m actually getting worse at typing as I get older, so I have a number of involuntary finger clicks throughout my keyboarding process.

Anywho, I seem to rationalize more and more things as non-important these days. One item you might have noticed, is, I haven’t re-posted James Howard Kunstler  in weeks mainly because I’m spending considerable effort ignoring violence around the globe. Perhaps today I’ll let you see what he has to say, because it is only fair with all the Palestinian siding that seems to be going around with the Liberal crowd.   Me, I’ll hopefully never condone murder aka hostilities and wars. So I’m not sympathetic to either side, although the Jews have had it rougher than most. Still it is just plain bad. http://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/excuse-me-for-living/ 

I’ll just keep on focusing my attention on a more and more limited set of activities.  Work is taking up most of my time, but the fish pond earth sheltered greenhouse is just to flipping cool for me to not work on it every chance I get. Tomorrow, I’ll pull another load of rock out. We’ve received the gasket set for the Dodge diesel injectors so I’ll put that on my list for tomorrow as well: Start the Dodge! Get it out of the shop. It has been in there taking up space long enough. 

I got everything I need… almost    Except we’re going to need a new wood heater

This one looks pretty good. Any thoughts?

Okay, wow, yesterday was rough, beautiful, but rough.

Let me start off with a couple pictures I took on 263 heading toward San Geronimo and my first job of the day above Camp Blue Haven.

 Haha don’t see it? It took a while and one of the young Camp Blue Haven staff members found it, first. I told them I didn’t absolutely need to see it I can point a antenna in the general direction and locate it it as long as it is somewhere within line of sight. Thank you Wayne for all your help and the offer of lunch, which I wish I had time for, as it was I had to race down the mountain something I dread doing. I was still an hour late for my next job. I’m here to tell you, by 2:00PM it was hotter than hell in Las Vegas. Up in the 100s no doubt. I did drink plenty of water, but I was running on no breakfast or lunch and my energy supply was very low.

July-29th-2014-Tusas-Apiary-happy-we-are Nell came home early, not feeling well. We think she got dehydrated on Sunday. That has happened to me and it is far worse than missing a meal. I did go and check on our new bees yesterday evening after work. All I can say is, “Yay!”

 Our pack is comfortable with the bees in their guarded perimeter. Both Lilly and Andrew went right up and stuck their noses in the front of the hives, I quietly urged, “Gowan Git,” keeping calm is crucial when being ion the vicinity of the hives. I couldn’t believe they did that. Not too bright, them mutts.
