I finally finished "The Invention of Nature" and wow, was it worth it. Humboldt led an amazing life and influenced so much of science during the early years of rational thought. Highly recommended. Here's my review:

Here's a picture of me, the dog, the book, the Red Sox and, not pictured, my glass of port the other evening.

Darn it all! Forced to work outside while they install the new kitchen drain pipe. Have pity on me.

Stay safe, Wear a mask. Watch you distance. Stay home. Wash your hands. Get vaccinated.

Oh, I forgot to add a picture of my full beer shelf. Warms the cockles of me heart, it does.

## Morning Mastodonians!

Good progress with the puppy. He barked at the door to go out yesterday and slept through the night last night! Still the occasional piddle accident, but I don't think he means it. He is still a handful and with 18" of snow possible tonight, it's going to be a lot of work to keep enough lawn open for him to do his business. Ugh. I really didn't need that complication!

So isn't delivering a big fluffball to the vets. Frankie is part Coon mix but as nice as you could imagine. All she has been through and she was easy to pick up and started purring right away. Better days are ahead for her, I'm sure. I guess she was going to get left on the curb but a neighbor heard about it and intercepted, getting her to Roy.

## Morning Mastodonians!

Is the long national nightmare about to be over? I mean, the one since Tuesday. I don't think the fevered nightmare we have been in for the last 4-5 years will wrap up any time soon, but it is a start.

An amazing sunrise this morning. Camera on my phone doesn't really do it justice, but our whole bedroom was glowing red from the color show. It's a good start.

The one at the top, Beagle(?), is healthy and happy. The one in the middle, Blossom, is the sickest one. The one at the bottom, Kennedy, might have calicivirus but we're not sure.

I owe my soul to the company store, to it is off to the salt mine yet again. Maybe I'll even close a bug that will stay close, instead of rising up again like the undead.

Stay safe. Social distance. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Hug a loved one.

Oh, and Nemo says good morning

Weather was great for the long weekend anyway. I even set up and played a (solo) game outdoors on Monday, which was fun. Wish I could entice another family member to play, but that hasn't really happened and both daughters are away at "school", even if they are still attending virtually for the most part.

Okay, so it has been awhile since I last built a computer but I must be really out of touch because I was simply blown away that this is a 1TB "hard" drive. My first NVMe purchase.

Yup, it is Monday again. I didn't skip my gym workout this morning, so I'm ready and raring to go. Ha! Actually, I'd love nothing more than to curl up in bed with the new foster kitties, who are just so adorable.

Lovely lazy weekend, really. Didn't even change out of my sweatpants yesterday.

Getting more and more worried about our Spain trip to see R studying abroad. Guess the CDC is recommending all schools bring the kids home.

iOS SDK here I come!

20 day streak at 750words. Not bad. I wasn't really feeling much like writing last night, but I started to write a few words and before you know it, I had reached the magic threshold. Now if I could only make them productive words!

Almost finished with RE:5. C and I are at the penultimate boss fight, just trying to get the steps right to beat this guy.

Foster kitties are sick but they are fun to be with.

Back to the D lang desktop lib to get some kinks worked out
