Sunrise December 9, 2016

Sunrise Sky Friday, December 9th, 2016 – I couldn’t hold the camera steady enough to get a decent telephoto shot of this. This was me leaning the camera on the top of the chain link fence and holding my breath – What we see and what we can capture with a camera are not always quite the same-

— 2016 has been ‘a Nine year’ numerologically  – [ 2+0+1+6 = 9 ] – which, to people who believe that the numerical values of days and months and years have a psychological and/or spiritual effect on human beings, means it’s a time of ending cycles. Depending on who you talk to or listen to, this is further warped by the number of the month and date – You’re supposed to add the month and date together and use that to modify the year’s number. { So, if you were born on January 1st, you’d add one plus one and hopefully get two and add that to the year’s number, get eleven and either think you were experiencing  a ‘master number’ eleven year or add one and one again and get two and believe you were having yourself a ‘two’ year. – In my case, I was born on September 9th, so 9+9 = 18 and 1+8 = 9 So I might have just lived through most of a double 9 year. Would all my ‘9’ years be doubled? – You’d have to consult with an ‘expert’ numerologist on that one. And of course, you might have to believe that numbers have vibrational power to augment or mess with they human psyche to ‘buy into’ this. Or you could be ‘scientific’ about it and say, “hey, I’m open minded – let’s see if this works-”

— Part of the explanation for what a ‘9’ year is supposed to be all about is that a lot of people will feel like they’ve finished a cycle. And, according to a couple I’ve heard on the radio this last year, a lot of people will figure the cycle they’re finished with is this life on planet earth. You may have noticed that an awful lot of people have checked out/ moved on to hopefully higher planes of existence this last year. My favorite spouse, Cathi, comes home from work too often saying things like, “Hey guess who left us today-?” — Too many wonderful people have moved on to better things this year and left us here, basking in the increasingly toxic atmosphere of whatever is going on in the power struggles of those who believe they should be in charge of the rest of us.

— & I’ve been ‘re-thinking’ a lot of philosophical stuff.

— But I also participated in “NaNoWriMo 2016” – National Novel Writing Month – last month, November – The idea with this is, you commit yourself to writing 50,000 words during the month of November, basically to prove to yourself that you can do that. For the second year in a row I wrote more like 100,000 words on my ‘NaNo Novel’ – & what ya gotta do here is — “Don’t stop and edit it, just get it all down-” and don’t go judging what you’ve got because you can cripple your effort by re-reading and feel the bottom drop out as you tell yourself, “Well, this sux-” and re-play the mind numbing words of everybody who tried to tell you that you’re a worthless piece of doo-doo if you’re not knocking yourself out to live your live by their standards and their rules. And, since they control their game, you can never measure up – hey, they cheat – in their minds they win if they convince you that- “you’ll never amount to anything, so why bother?”

NaNo 2016 Winner Banner

— This year’s ‘Winner’ Banner – tailored to ‘effbook’ standards & size { originally 1500 x 555 pixels }.

— ( I hate sans-serif fonts ) —

NaNo page

— This is the page from the NaNoWriMo web site that tells you you’ve passed their ‘upload your nano novel’ test and should really dig into your pockets and donate whatever $’s you can – They do not engage in the kind of nasty politix that many ‘beedy grastards’ stoop to – they do not try to convince you that you are a worthless piece of doo-doo if you don’t fork over the money you thought you could save to buy one of your favorite people a nice ‘it’s the thought that counts’ holiday presents.

— So I just ‘binge-watched’ all five seasons of ‘Person Of Interest’ on Bell Aliant’s take on a Netflix type service { ‘Crave TeeVee’ } (( And loved the character “Root” who was supposed to be a one episode character but, according to one of the ‘show runners’ had such a cool theme song that they wrote her in as a world class ‘dynamic character’ – Amy Acker’s Voice and expression make me want to ‘create’ and wear a tee shirt that says, “I wasn’t talking to you-” and credit that quote to ‘050313’. ))

— The perfect television programme never made it into any ‘on air’ status or ever looked like anything the ‘-powers who delude themselves into believing they ‘be’-‘ would consider airing for their own gratification and profit… But this one came close.

Moe -- Study in Orange

— Moe — our own little ‘Orange Revolution’ —

— And, once again, Moe gets the last word. I really should record some of our conversations, the plaintive cat, “Maereh Raireh!” and, “Maaw-ou-” &. “Aereh mung muh!” with so many subtle shades of emotional expression. — If I ever completely understand what he’s trying to say, I probably will be ready for a straight jacket – or a halo? —

A Little More Than Half Past October — 2016

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 — +4˚C / +39˚F — dark and damp in Atlantic Canada @ 7:43 pm — 21 years ago tonight my father died. —

Moe

Yup, our cat really is that big- This is Moe. He took possession of the extra large sized dog bed we bought for Jassper – The bed measures 48 inches long by 33 inches wide. Moe’s a long haired ‘Cat and a half’ but most of what you see here is one pudgy cat.

— I’ve been calling “Pudge” off and on for a couple years now.

— Sigh – There HAS been a lot going on lately –

— I nearly believed I could finish one novel and enter it into a contest, even went and created a cover for it – as per contest rules —>

Book Cover.

Book Cover – Final Design – So far, anyway – This won’t display here at full size –

— I was ‘going gangbusters’ here writing this as a third complete revision – after starting this novel in 1987 – but so many new details have jumped into the story – many of which I’m pretty sure will need to find themselves edited out, but it will then have one heck of a back story – Hint –  There really should be a flying saucer way the bleep in the background on the left somewhere.

Stone Lake in the game world.

Here’s where the above cover ‘photo’ came from – one area in the game world I’ve been building online since 2011 – lately production is on hold waiting for another one of their promised innovations that would make my work a lot easier. This is the “Stone Lake” area inside “Aerendel” on the Hero Cloud. And you’re looking at what you’d see if you had a character there. She’s carrying a Gear Axe that all the builder characters are born with.

— Builder Characters are all that are running around in the game world We’ve been building since 2011. They’re the ones who run around and get out of the way when you’re raising mountains and carving rivers and doing all sorts of esoteric ‘other’ things to each area – Sometimes they fall through the ground and I’ve had a couple disappear completely and had to re-roll or re-create somebody to run around inside the world so we can see how it will look when finished, etc.

Jeep being loaded onto a flatbed.

Somebody finally bought the Jeep.

— I’d quote very early Buffalo Springfield here, “Don’t it leave you with the thought, that perhaps you’ve just been bought?” – We finally had to accept less than half what Cathi wanted for the Jeep – but it’s gone. There’s a strangely vacant spot where the Jeep sat for over a year, waiting for us to either get what we’re owed so we could afford to fix the danged thing ourselves or receive an offer that we could live with. As it is we’re left with a bad taste in our mouths.

Bride and Mothers at September wedding

On the positive side. Cathi’s daughter – Erin – got married on September 4th, to a really nice guy. This is Erin the bride between her mother (Cathi on our right) and her new mother in law (Hala on our left).

— I’ve still got a lot to do with a lot of photos we took at the wedding. And this was complicated by a hard drive with all those photos and videos ‘dying’ after a bit of a power outage here last month. – grrrrrr –

— Um, I might add to this later, we have a dog who needs his evening constitutional –

Tat gets an Emmy.

Tatiana Maslany won the Emmy for Best woman actor in a dramatic series last night.

— Some of our favourites won big at the Emmy’s last night, Tatiana M. (Libra) won Best Woman Actress in a dratmatic series [ title warped by me because I’m sensitive to sensitive sensibilities [[ insert smiley stickin its tongue out here 😉 ]] ] Rami Malek (Taurus) won for best male actor in a dramatic series. & Game of Thrones won 3 Emmy’s last night [ added to the 9 they were awarded for artistic and technical schnarr earlier ] : (1) Best Writers for an episode and (2) Best Director for the same episode [ Battle of the Bastards ] and (3) Best Dramatic Series. 🙂

Beautiful Hobbit-Friendly Countryside.

Beautiful countryside, I’m not sure where –

— Looks like a wonderful, Hobbit-Friendly countryside, somewhere —

Good Night Twitter - Sweet Dreams?

— And a cool “Good Night Twitter” sunset —

— & There was an investigative program on the CBC last night investigating the evils of sugar. The conspiratorial cover-up of the ill effects of sugar preceded the nasty cover up of the ill effects of smoking tobacco. U.S. FDA has to know about this and I don’t think it could have happened without FDA complicity: Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, Obesity, Alzheimers, ‘and more’ can be attributed to the FDA allowing sugar and *especially lately, Genetically Modified Ingredients, ESPECIALLY HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!* – to remain available on supermarket shelves & in everything most ‘Americans’ (& Canadians) eat.  They interviewed researchers in one study that have found that the typical “North American / Western Diet” — especially over the last ten years with the proliferation of genetically modified high fructose corn syrup — activates Alzheimers Disease and causes brain damage – severely effecting memory. So, if the punishment fits the crime — somebody should incarcerate Bill Gates and force feed him large quatities of junk food, insuring gastro-intestinal distress, Diabetes, and nerve damage, so that he will be forced to reincarnate as a brain damaged infant with severe health issues, live in  extreme poverty with a whole lot of saturnian limitations everywhere he looks. — Schnarr! —

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 — 23°C / 73°F & pleasant in Atlantic Canada @4:30 pm — It’s our friend Nina’s birthday today (and, coincidently, her twin brother Bobby’s birfday too – funny how that seems to happen. ) —

Our good friend, Doug is sharing his odd a-political insights with us here – And even included a tribute to our dearly departed bengal cat, Domino, sniff sniff – :

Oh Dangit – Too Much Good Information That Needs Sharing To Let Me Sleep –

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 — 85°F / 29°F — Too hot with too much bright sunlight in Ithaca, NY @ 1:45 pm —

Ireland Jailed 3 Banksters. Why Haven't We.
Ireland Jailed 3 Banksters. Why haven’t we?

— If I took the time to get large screen shots of everything I thought was important in news feeds and twitter feeds today I’d never get to sleep.

US Intelligents reports that WikiLeaks is not an arm of Russian Intelligence.
U.S. Intelligence says WikiLeaks is not a political arm of Russian Intelligence.

— Those who believe – “It’s not illegal if you don’t get caught” want to vilify all good reporters. WikiLeaks is not your enemy. Dishonest, megalamaniacal, micro-managing – manipulative, power-crazy politicians ARE.

Krishnamurti quote. Labels are violence.
– Wish I’d said that – [ Wow ]

— Defining yourself is an act of violence? Holy Cow! Why didn’t I think of that? Calling yourself a Republican is vilifying all Democrats? Calling yourself a Democrat is demonizing all Republicans? “Ego is the human soul desperately trying to believe that it is limited to a human body and one short lifetime” < Jim Wellington > – That’s how I got mixed up with all this blogging and stuff – I’d always been a writer, I thought it was an obsession – This guy muttered one phrase at a writers’ workshop and blew a thousand of my most worrisome misconceptions all to hell. – No, I’m a truth seeker, embracing any truth I can verify and wanting to share that with all the rest of us lost and exhausted pilgrims desperately hungry and thirsting for Truth, Mercy, Spirituality, Personal Evolution – This is not an obsession, it’s a calling. I want to share everything that makes me feel good about being alive with everybody else who’s starving for peace of mind.

"Republican Refugees seek asylum in Democratic Party.
– This might be politically motivated nonsense, but it’s too funny to pass up.

— If reformed Republicans really want believe in themselves again and sleep nights (or days if their biological clocks are half as mixed up as mine is) – They’d be better off seeking asylum in the Green Party. Remember a Y2K bumper sticker with an animal that was half Donkey and half Elephant – a two headed ‘push me pull you’? Calling them “Republicrats”? Why keep voting for the same old [stinky stuff]? Haven’t we had enough of this nonsense? My wonderful, adorable daughter says, “Jeeze – it looks like everybody’s trying to drive back all human progress to the madness that started the first world war-” And she’s too young to remember the first Desert Storm idiocy.

Caterpillars can't understand butterflies.
“When she became a butterfly all the caterpillars shunned her-” ?

— Caterpillars can’t understand butterflies. Morons with their heads stuck up their Ice-Holes can’t understand anyone who isn’t as stupid and destructive and greedy as they are. Donald J Trump does not have a prayer of being able to understand anybody who believes in Bernie Sanders [ at least, not in this life ]. People who believe they have a right to destroy everybody else’s quality of living in pursuit of a little profit will never understand conservationists. Frackers will never understand anyone who wants to be able to drink pure, unpoisoned water. Oil Company executives will never want to understand why anybody would ever want to share renewable energy that costs almost nothing and provides better energy, more and better jobs, healthier people and a lot less stress than gasoline, gas and oil – { at least, not until it’s too late and they realize they’ve shot themselves in their own crotches }.

Lake Tahoe
On a less serious note –

— I thought it might be a good time to post a photo of a beautiful world that is not yet spoiled and poisoned by the [ snar ] coming to California from the Fukushima disaster. People who are not muzzled by lying unethical political motivation are warning that Fukushima’s radiation has already poisoned too much of the Pacific Ocean, we might already be beyond any hope of undoing the effects of some of the deadliest poison known to humans – { unless those rumoured aliens/angels come to our aid with their radiation eating technologies. Pray for help, guys – }

Leopards in Botswana.
This is a tribute to Jim and Cathi’s cat, Domino.

— Rest In Peace, Domino – you taught me that cats can be fun to play with.

Huge Hungarian Guard Dog
Now that’s one serious looking guard dog. { he said, flawlessly elucidating the painfully obvious – }

— Like I said, there’s much too much important looking information flying around the Tweet-Us-Sphere to ignore today. Most of it is probably based in truth. But, like always, don’t take my word for it. Get out there and investigate! Use your brain before it doesn’t even help your cranium in its function as hat rack.

— Please, God, Can I get some rest now?

Sunday In The Rain

Sunday, July 17th, 2016 — 21˚C / 69˚F & Raining @ 3:45 pm in Atlantic Canada — Today would have been Aunt Val’s Birthday —

Cathi in the rain.

Cathi, Standing in the rain, Taking a break from a gardening spurt.

— We dashed off to a quick trip to the NorthSide Market and a quick detour to the Atlantic Superstore on the way home. Cathi noticed some plants on sale as their Gardening Centre had closed down for the season. When we got home we carried our reduced priced treasures around and put them where they looked happy and will give them permanent homes in the soil later. Cathi also spread some epsom salts around her tomatoes, which we hear is something that tomato plants love.

Deer Hill in the rain.

This is what the hill were the deer come to visit in the winter looks like on a warm rainy day in mid July.

— This hill, which you might remember, I measured earlier this spring and reported that it was 12 feet from our porch window in Cathi’s ‘Zen Corner’ to where the deer happily munch on oats, stale bread and apple cores in the winter. The shot looked a lot better with lots of hints of purple flowers and other bits of colour that did not quite translate into the photo that emerged from the digital realms here. The Evergreens look a lot more silvery here than I noticed ‘in real life’.

Smoke Tree with fuzzy blooms.

Our Happy little Smoke Tree Is happily taking in this afternoon’s shower.

— & Our Smoke Tree is doing well this season.

Upstairs at the Coffee Mill.

Yesterday, We had brunch at the Coffee Mill restaurant on Prospect Street. One of the waitresses on duty when we got there asked if we’d like to sit upstairs. It was hard for me to see up there with a very bright sun beating down on the outside balcony about ten yards from our table. But this is what it looked like inside.

— The food was excellent but, with the very bright sun outside effecting my glasses I had a hard time seeing what was in front of me inside. (Eep?)

Blurry Error Message "The Internet Has stopped."

Scary Error Message, “The Internet Has Stopped.” (sorry about the blur-)

— Cathi has her new-ish Samsung Galaxy Something phone set to connect to the internet through wireless networks rather than gobble up tons of minutes and data charges getting messages the old-fashioned way (?)  Yesterday at Brunch she received an interesting error message and couldn’t remember the new phone’s screen capture routine, so I volunteered my newer cell and we thought this would be readable, the tiny window looked like we held steady enough. But “Unfortunately, Internet has stopped” looks an awful lot like the messages we’ve been getting from our internet freedom watchdog group. & yes, we’d all be in shock if somebody blew up the internet ‘for real’.

— Um, this is probably enough blogging damage for today –,

Monday – Bring the Cat to the Hairdresser’s Day –

Monday, May 9th, 2016 — Colder than usual — 7˚C/ 44˚F @ 6:21 pm on a day that’s been on and off sunny and dark and splashed half a dozen rain drops on the windshield every now and then in Atlantic Canada — on uncle by marriage – Ed Conroy’s Birthday.

Moe

This is Moe – the 25 pound ‘Cat and a half’ – after his trip to the hair dresser’s. He’s checking out his cat treats, or maybe looking for fragments of cat treats he might have missed – and looks like a beast from a science fiction novel I read once.

Moe Hair.

No, this is not what’s left after you put a cat through a shredder – this is a small portion of Moe’s hair on the groomer’s floor.

Moe checkind his bowl of cat food.

– A little dark, I should have told the flash to do its thing, but this is one more angle of our newly trimmed ‘trouble is his middle name’ orange cat, Moe, as he’s looking at his dry cat food and trying to decide whether to shred us in our sleep for putting him through the indignity of having his matted hair shaved or let us live another day, possibly because we come through with some decent cat treats now and then.

— The round flower pot to the right and almost even with Moe’s nose is catnip that Cathi planted. We have more than once found Moe passed out cold with his arms around that flower pot and his nose deep in the leaves. We have had to hold our breath a couple times and pray that he was still breathing. Yup – he’s still alive.

— & Game Of Thrones Stuff —

— Should our Game Of Thrones Banner feature an orange cat wearing a purple cape?

— And – Regarding The Game Of Thrones last night, might be the quote of the week: When asked if he was still himself after having appeared very dead after being murdered by possibly well meaning ‘brothers’ of the Night’s Watch – Jon Snow replied, “I think so, don’t burn my body just yet.”

— & in the Game of Thrones speculation department – Bran and the Three Eyed Raven guy were watching an unven battle in which two Targaryen swordsmen { especially one knight – after his companion was pierced rather soundly – } nearly killed off something like eight Northmen, including Eddart Stark. Howland Reed, who we all thought was struck down, stabbed the Targaryen Knight (Ser Arthur Dayne?) in the back when it looked like Eddart Stark was about to lose his life – Then we heard a woman scream in a tower behind where this lopsided fight took place – and the Three Eyed Raven guy would not let Bran follow Eddart up into the tower ( not yet ? ) telling him that if he lingered too long in his visions he might never get back to his body — I’m wondering if that scream was Lyanna ( Eddart’s [ ‘Ned’s ] sister ) giving birth to Jon Snow – or both Jon and Meera? You wouldn’t believe the speculation going on around that one.

— & Yes, I agree – There may be way too much to cover for HBO to finish off the entire story in seven seasons.

— & I have too much to say, but I’m aching and tired and need to rest – So – “Au plaisir -”

Early Morning – April 21, 2016 – Is The Sun In Taurus?

Thursday, April 21, 2016  — // +5˚C / 41˚F @ 8:19 am on a bright sunny morning with clear air and clear blue skies in Atlantic Canada —

Puffy purple clouds just before sunrise.

We had a few puffy clouds before sunrise, this was at 6:24 am Atlantic Time here.

Deer Hill before the deer arrived today.

This is a different shot of the ‘Deer Hill’. Taken while leaning just over the dog’s fence – with a bit of the house showing on the extreme right.

Several deer grazing on the 'DeerHill'.

Committee Breakfast – 7:25 am. The white deer reflected so much light I had to darken the exposure slightly using the limited tools available in the Preview App.

— There are bits of the white deer’s hair visible to the right of the three or four deer clustered near the center of the photo. I am hoping this wasn’t the result of a deer fight – They’ve had a few kicking sessions, fighting over who gets to eat first. The older deer seem to kick the young ones gently enough – as if they think of that as a ‘gentle reminder’. ‘Whitey’ gets chased away a lot – he or she seems not to be very high on their social scale. Sometimes ‘Whitey’ comes around with one other guy, who looks pretty scruffy – we wonder if these are the ‘outcastes’ or low deer on their totem pole.

— I measured the distance from the corner of the porch to the top of the hill there. At a point that’s just about the edge of the shaggy grass near the right edge of the mini ‘cliff’ in this photo – that point is 12 feet from the corner of the porch. The deer might be another three to six feet from that edge. Fifteen to eighteen feet from the window?

— Sigh. We’re still feeling the effects of knowing that my mother is adjusting to her life in ‘the next world’. Best reports from those I trust to know what that’s like ( I can’t remember, myself – ) report that it can take from a couple weeks to six months before new arrivals ‘on the other side’ go through their orientation and feel comfortable enough to try to get messages through to us over here. Latest explanations are along the lines of “First they relive every pain they ever felt, then they are helped to see and feel every pain they ever caused any other living being.” Um – I won’t be able to verify that for you until after I’ve been through it (again?) And then you’d probably have to be in the same world, same dimension I’ll be in if you’d want to be able to understand what I was trying to tell you. { Go play “The Seeker” by The Who. }

— Enough for today? — Hope I didn’t bring you down completely.
