Closing the Eye of Sauron

I've got a new rule. I can read Twunter and Farcebook anytime I want, but not on my phone or desktop. The iMac is for work and my phone is for anything other than Twunter and Farcebook. (I do use my phone for work, mostly for el Goog and running an app called Forest which plants a little digital tree for every pomodoro session I finish. It can also plant real trees out in the world of real things if you get enough points, which I think I almost have).

Pay me in exposure. No, you pay me for exposure.

I used to be a contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine, which sounds a lot cooler than it was. Basically, if you hung around long enough you got to be one, because they weren't going to pay you any more for your copy. Still, I learned a lot working for that magazine, wrote a few stories I still think of fondly, and had a whole heap of fun. There were lots of free tickets to concerts and stuff like that. And they let me sleep on the couch.

Broken day.

I knew I was going to have a tough one today. We were getting new solar panels installed. The inverter on the original array finally packed it in and I figured we might as well upgrade since the technology had come along a bit in the last 12 years.

Have the best Christmas you can.

We saw off another old mate this week. Gulliver. One of two brothers we rescued from a wild litter shortly after Thomas was born. That would make him and his bro more than eighteen years old.

Sadly, Gully won’t see nineteen, or even Christmas.

Like most of our furry friends, he loved the Santa Season. All of a sudden there was more ham, all the time.
