1) if you wake up and go outside and look at the sky about an hour before sunrise, you can see Venus and Jupiter very close together in the east, about a third of the way up from the horizon.

2) The tree on last tuesdays post ended up not being torn down. In the pic on Wednesdays post, the four trees in one direction were torn down, but the one tree in the other direction, the one in my photo, is the one that was saved. I talked to the Leader of Government Business when I saw him in the parking lot and talked to him about that tree. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it, but they were out there re-surveying and measuring and that tree will not be torn down. Seeing and talking to the Leader of Government Business is kind of like running into the President of the US on the street or at the grocery store. It can only happen in a small country.

3) Yesterday, I went to the Brac for the day for work. It was very busy there. We had a truly Japanese rental car. This is the stereo.
I'm going back next weekend too, for work.

Heros Day Weekend

This was Heros Day weekend. Monday was a Holiday. There was a huge celebration in town. I forgot my camera.
Now I'm back at work. Going to the Brac tomorrow for the day.

Sick yesterday

Tuesday night, I went to bed at 5:30 in the afternoon. I slept all the way through till about 6AM the next morning, then went to work and was miserable all day, sneezing and coughing and sweating and freezing. Yesterday, I called in sick and slept all day and all night last night. Today I'm back at work, feeling a lot better.
Just in time for the weekend YEAY!!

From Google Earth
The tree on the left, the one from yesterdays picture, hasn't been cut down yet. All the ones on the right have.
It's a crime.

Death Of A Mahogany Tree

As I type this, they're outside tearing down this tree to re-do the parking lot.
I hate that when that happens.

I'm overloaded at work, I think I have a $12000 piece of equipment that is the wrong thing, and may turn out to be a waste of money. (I didn't order it thank God, my old retired boss did)
And I'm trying to install new studios while the construction guys are breathing down my back about tearing out the old studios.
I can take it though. I'll git 'er done.

A week of Mondays

Fer cryin' out loud, this has been a long week. And everyday has been like a Monday. Drag my ass out of bed, thinking "aw crap, that weekend was too short, another frikkin' Monday" Not really thinking it, but feeling it.
Now it's Friday, and I am glad!

My Right Toe

I have two big toes, one on my left and one on my right. I seem to be biased to the one on my right. Or vice versa. I only hurt my right big toe.
A couple of months ago, I fell up the stairs, and bent my toe way backwards and ripped the guts out of my shoe and it hurt really bad. Now my toenail is all black and bruised underneath and I rekkkon six months for the discolored part to grow out.
Yesterday I swam the mile, and when I was walking back to my car I stubbed my bad toe on a grapefruit sized rock. I looked up and down and it was the only rock on the beach.
The thing is, I only hurt my right big toe. As long as I can remember, I've called it my bad toe.
I must lead with my right foot.

Careless & Worthless (C&W)

I am so tired of being ripped off by our phone company. Cable & Wireless, aka Careless & Worthless.
I can't remember anything they've done right the first time. Ever. I switch plans, and it doesn't happen, I have to go there twice or more. If I move, and need to switch my phone to the new place, it doesn't happen.
I return an item, the credit doesn't appear on my bill.
No matter what it is, Careless & Worthless will fail their customer, at the customers expense.
Perfect incompetence.
Zero first time success rate on any task, they need constant pressure and supervision to do it after their deadline. And you better get everyones name you talk to there.
The Cayman Islands used to have the world record for the highest phone rates on the planet. Maybe they still do.
Careless & Worthless, The only game in town.

I asked her, she said yes. She didn't hesitate, she just said "Of course I'll marry you" and began hugging and kissing me. I had to tell her to quit it and look at the ring.
She likes the ring, too.

The Chair

Here's some pics I took of a chair yesterday. Lame post, I know. But it is a cool chair, and now I want to make one just like it!!

Today I think I'm going to 'pop the question'

Back On The Brac

I'm back on Cayman Brac, Lovin' it so far. The OI Girl is downstairs, she'll be working on a new bar menu while she's here. I'm going to be diligently guarding the pool and beach areas. I brought my snorkel gear. I've been trying to loose weight, I was 199 now I'm about 181. This place isn't going to help any.

My Friday

Today is my Friday, OI Girl and I are going to the Brac tomorrow for a restful weekend. Plus she's going to help them make a new menu. (She worked there when we met, as you will recall.)
I'm really looking forward to it.

No Record

The courthouse didn't have any record of any ticket. I called, I went down there and I got everybodies name I talked to.
Apparently the cop never turned anything in.
She has 30 days to submit it, most of which are gone.

Court Date

Today's my court date for my no seat belt ticket -I THINK.
I was supposed to receive a summons- I didn't
I didn't get a ticket, the officer said I'd get a summons. I got nothing in writing, I just remember the officer said Jan 8th 2008.
There's no answer at the courthouse phone.
I have go pressure them to do their job, so they can screw me over and fine me.
I don't, I may get in bigger trouble later on.

The Perfect Woman

The OI Girl's pretty good. We spent the whole day at the beach yesterday, from about 11 till about 4. I never met a girl who could hang with me at the beach as long as I can. We get along good, and have fun. She scuba dives, and I'm leaning her towards rebreathers. My Dawg likes her and vice versa. Also she now puts the lid back on things (most of the time), and she quit squeezing the toothpaste from the middle of the tube (Again, most of the time).
Now I wish I could get her to put water back in the ice cube tray. . .

The Worst Thing I Have Ever Seen

WARNING! This is EXTREMELY disturbing!

I think the only people who should be allowed to wear fur are those who live in the extreme cold who ate the animal and need the fur to survive. No furs should be sold anywhere.

Cell Phone Pocket

For me, it is slowly becoming mandatory for pants to have a built-in cell phone pocket. Yeah, I have a "holster" that clips on my belt, but it is always snagging on the table when I sit in the chair and when I get up, sometimes it pokes me in the side and is becoming a hassle. I had a couple pairs of pants that had cell phone pockets, but never used them, then one day I did and wow, I'm hooked.
Now Almost half my pants have built in cell phone pockets, and I don't like my "holster" at all.

I would nominate this for "Most Boring Post" but I'm not because of my post yesterday, and the day before, and the day before. . . .

It's very cloudy, cold, rainy and windy, a major cold front moved through yesterday, and it is frikkin COLD!

Happy 2008

I had a good New Years Eve, went to a friens house for a barbeque, then at about 11:30 we all went to the beach for the fireworks. We could see all the fireworks all up and down Seven Mile Beach.
On the first I was supposed to go diving, (OI Girl had to work) but I got called into work at 6:30 am and went in for two hours. Computer problems.
Then I went to the beach for the rest of the day, but it was so crowded . . .
I went and had lunch with the OI Girl and that was nice.
Now it's back to the grind!
