We'd hoped people were going to come look at our house for sale... but apparently nobody wants to visit until tomorrow, when it's supposed to rain.

I bought an anoyatron to drive a friend nuts. I will also be using spoofcard liberally to fool friends.

Went shopping with my wife. Sales ladies kept asking if they could help me find anything. I told them I was looking for a wife but they looked too fragile.

Poured a rum and getting ready for a Mexican bake and a fire in the fireplace.

My two cats got their pictures in Facebook and some lady in London loves them.

It's my birthday. 55 years old today. The story goes that my mom wanted the doctor to induce labor so I wouldn't arrive on April Fool's Day. Her younger brother was born on April Fool's Day and I guess she didn't want the same to happen to me. They also say that she shared a room at the hospital with a family of Gypsies that celebrated the birth of their son for hours drinking, smoking cigars and dancing in the shared hospital room.

Both my parents are sure I was switched at birth.

Google started their April Fool's joke already. Or at least one of them.

http://maps.google.com/%3Ft%3D9

If you zoom in on some particularly well-known places or street view, it's even more amusing. Try Roswell, the Hollywood sign, Mt. Everest, Rivendell, the Googleplex, or Microsoft... for starters.

Clean Energy Fair...
May not very exciting...but it was interesting. One of our State Senator's put this together to have her constituants be better informed on alternative energy.

Although this was out of our District ... it was open to all.

Topics included:

Sea Water Air Conditioning Systems
Wind Energy
Wave Energy
Solar Energy

Also exhibits were available.

Our interest was specifically in Solar water heating and Photo Voltaic applications.

In my humble opinion, there should have been some on geothermal but that's specific to the Big Island of Hawaii (20% of electric is powered via geothermal; not oil) maybe something on natural gas.

In addition, I believe there are potentially jobs in the area of alternative energy.

Well that's it the rest of the weekend is going to focus on getting ready (wish list) for a meeting with General Contractor to do some renovations.

Like I said nothing too exciting...

Thanks for the kind words. Been a great career and an honor to serve, but this weekend is a genuine milestone for me.

Went riding today to celebrate my last day, I'll ride tomorrow to celebrate my retirement.

oldswimcoach,
Congratulations on your retirement. I know how you feel.
I spent 22 years in the Army / Air Force and they retired me out 48 years ago.
Old Sam has come around every last day of the month ever since. Hasn't missed a one. Sure makes for a nice secure feeling.

I did my one hitch in the navy and moved on.

But career soldiers like you are the back bone of the military... and it just wouldn't work without you.

You have my respect and admiration. Thank you for your service.

Yes it's my bong on a shelf with the other morning necessities like Alka-Seltzer and deodorant. I put a tea light candle in an old outdoor light glass and embedded it in sand. I'm not usually so much of a home design person. Above on the wall is an anatomical chart of the digestive system. Handy as I stand there taking a leak.

This morning, we took our friends who were visiting from Boston up to a nice old resort in the Catalinas to celebrate their 22nd anniversary. We had an incredible no-limit buffet brunch with endless mimosas. Almost a Mr. Creosote reenactment. I think I'll just lie around for the rest of the day in a well-ventilated area.
