01:57 PM EST [Link] New PSU on order [comments: 0]
I ordered a new PSU last night and opened up my desktop and disconnected the old PSU. When the new one comes I'll just plug it in and see what happens. This particular desktop tower is all tricked out with lights, serious graphic card and stuff, back when I was into modding rigs a bit, but when I buy a new computer it'll be substantially bare bones since I'm not much of a gamer these days. That said I'll need to do a little research on what I should get but while browsing I've seen very reasonable prices these days. I was thinking of getting a laptop but I still do like the power of a desktop tower that I can muck with the innards and components, so I might go with one of those again.

I rode the bike in today, surprisingly it was the 1st time this month, as scheduling and weather (and maybe some plain old laziness) conspired against me doing it more as in past months.

07:14 PM EST [Link] Book Score and Dead Computer [comments: 0]
While in Chatham over the weekend we noticed another one of those Little Libraries on the side of the road. This one was loaded with good stuff, I suppose to be expected since it was Chatham. Anyways I took a hardcover that actually contained 4 books - Streisand A Biography, The Perfect Storm (which I've already read), Working on a Miracle (true story about a Doctor who contracted AIDS while performing an autopsy), and Captured By History (A biography of sorts of a historian and the people he'd interacted with over his career). I'll probably read that last one, not sure about the others.

However, I'm currently reading The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve, which is about, you guessed it, the first couple. (Book #13 for the year so far). It's not a religious book but no so about the history through the ages, sources, interpretations, influences on art, etc. that they've had on humanity. I've gotten through the first two chapters so far and I'm really liking it.

Sadly tonight my desktop computer died. I think it might be the PSU since nothing powers it on now. I can get a new PSU but not sure if it's worth it, comp is old and runs sucky now. Guess I'll have to though. Been so long since I've built this thing. Trying to remember the specs and where what plugs where. Might be time for a new rig. Well, I went ahead and ordered a new PSU to arrive next week. Going to try to get my files off there and look for a new system soon.

As my computer was on the verge of croaking I did notice my all time favorite Law & Order original series episode was on, Aftershock, so I watched that. I like this episode because it's not like all the others, it goes into each character's private lives and how each one of them is broken in some way. I especially like the insight into McCoy's character, a side that is never seen, and to why he's so driven.

Looking around for our seats

Good night for a game, place has a pretty fun atmosphere, enough so that I feel myself really dragging today. Getting there early enough scored me a Xander Gnome statue giveaway. I got to attend for free and had a 25$ voucher for concessions since this was our summer outing event from work, so they paid for everything. I apparently missed the banner controversy though as it came out just as I was probably wandering around and then leaving the park. Just as well as it starting raining as soon as I got home, plus I heard they lost anyway. If you haven't deduced, I'm not really a baseball fan, however, being there was fun like I mentioned.

Just in the last couple we had a double date with M&M at a new sort of hip cool restaurant in Braintree, a visit with our animal friends on a nice afternoon, and a scary movie with one half of M&M (the other half was too scared to attend) on a Sunday afternoon. The shed is finally finished with both painting and the final trim after what seemed like ages getting it done.

In case you're interested here's a list of what I'm currently reading and some things I want to read and have on my radar.

Currently Reading: Crash Override: How Gamergate (Nearly) Destroyed My Life, and How We Can Win the Fight Against Online Hate (book #12 read on my list for the year - don't think I'm going to hit my goal of 50, hey, I've been preoccupied!).

On the docket:

The Politics Of Murder: The Power and Ambition Behind "The Altar Boy Murder Case"
And Party Every Day: The Inside Story of Casablanca Records
The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve
No One Cares About Crazy People: The Chaos and Heartbreak of Mental Health in America (actually might be planning on seeing the author talk about this book in a few weeks).

In other news: Got my free Red Sox ticket for a game next week. Hopefully the remnants of Irma won't impact it but we'll see as the date gets nearer.

Great day to get out on the water.

I was jonesin' for a little ocean air so we hopped in my SUV and headed down for some ocean vibes. Great day to be outside. I really love living close to the ocean, I don't think I could live in a place where it would take forever to get there - like the midwest. There's just something about the smell, the breeze, the waves, the peaceful serenity and the terrible power...We also had a nice lunch down there at a tavern we like to frequent when we're in the area. I had the Shrimp, Broccoli & Penne.

pshed2017 (146k image) Finally finished with the painting of the shed - now it matches the house colors green with a white trim (Might have looked cooler with a black trim but whatevs). Just have to paint the little window/mirror thingy (an adornment). Maybe we'll do that tomorrow, shouldn't take very long at all. Also yesterday sent a window screen in to be repaired and I cooked some strip steaks on the grill and they actually came out really good. I always want to do a good job but sometimes I have a tendency to overcook things, but not this time! We seared them first and it made a huge difference. Also topped it off with some potatoes and salmon on the grill as well. What adventures will happen this rainy day today? Stay tuned.

Ended up going to the movies ans saw "Wind River." (review here). A movie that I've not seen advertised or knew anything about. It's pretty intense, great acting - I recommend it! Like I said, it gets really intense once it gets moving.

We got taken out to a nice lunch at work today to celebrate the retirement of one of our long-term colleagues. She made it to a 50 year career - can you imagine working for the same company for 50 years?! (Really 2 companies, but the company we work for now carried over our seniority from the previous place as part of the buyout). Unheard of! Especially in this day and age!

Good luck in retirement Marcia!

Some random notices from today:

Lady Professor who just moved in across the street flew some dude in from MN to do some reno work on the house she just bought. Odd character friend of their family apparently, rate seems extremely low and was asking us for sights to see in Boston, but not the nice sights, ghetto sites - weird. Most people when visiting town don't ask to see the ghetto areas. Actually that whole group over seems a little off and odd, we haven't even had an actual hello from them yet.

In the shower this morning I was looking at my chest and reminiscing back to when I had 6-pack abs. Now it looks like I only have 2-pack abs. Sad.

I'm trying to get this morning glory vine we planted in the spring to grow and climb a certain way. It's going up the deck banister, which I wanted, but I also want it to climb up the side and along the roof eaves. Very much like I had the clematis vine growing in the front. Little by little - although it kind of has a kind of its own.

Next door neighbors are removing their above ground pool to put in an inground pool. The destruction of the previous pool is very noisy!

Spent some time at the Sanctuary today - it had been a while - such a tranquil place, really a great place to unwind because it's so peaceful. As shown below I got to spend some quality time with Hannibal Lector (really just Bean).

Going to grill up some of the squash, cucumbers, and other veggies we've been growing in the raised boxes. All that'll be left are the eggplants. Also planning on tossing together some watermelon with feta cheese and some other accoutrements for a jazzy summer salad to go with.

For some brain action, I've been playing Get It Filled - pretty good puzzle game.

Spent the day tooling around Boston, it was a great day to be outside. I pretty much walked all over the North End to the Seaport District and everything in between, ending my tour in Copley (where I ended up mashing up my thumb pretty badly). Yes, I finally got a chance to check out Eataly. I don;t see what the big deal is personally but it was cool seeing the pasta being made by hand, plus all the different varieties.

I like the way this one came out - especially the full size one with all the details (which you really can't see in this miniature sized version). I'm planning on being in Btown tomorrow so maybe if anything catches my eye I'll get some more shots. Also some of my previous work is actually hanging up in some offices downtown (I'm totally floored and flattered!) so I'd like to check them out. I have to be a little careful though - I seem to have slightly strained my Abductor Digiti Minimi in my foot, no doubt from walking on uneven surfaces and possibly my choice of current footwear.

Sailing into Tuesday...Well, yesterday was the big solar eclipse but I didn't go outside to watch it. I'll be more interested in it in 7 years when it happens again and we'll be almost in 100 percent totality at that stage. Lots of folks around here went outside and checked it out. It didn't get all that dark around here to me, I guess because it was only 60 percent covered. But enough about that.

Lynn Auditorium, Lynn, MA 8/18/17

Last night we went to see Air Supply in concert. Not my first choice in groups to see, but LD really likes them. However I must say that they brought it and were awesome to see live. All the songs seemed more dynamic in the live setting, like beefed up a bit and they had an amazing, killer backup band. These guys really are super-talented musicians. There was even one part in the show where they left the stage while doing a song, coming into the audience and taking selfies with fans - that was actually very cool! I would see them again. And they sounds exactly the same - the voices, everything, top-notch. Also, I found their lighting during the show to be fantastic.

as2 (18k image)Sitting next to us were this couple from Columbia, and I don't know if AS is huge in Columbia or not, but these guys were totally into the show. They were up dancing, screaming, knowing all the words to all the songs - it was like Nirvana to them! We were so enamored with Paulo and Cindy that LD just had to get a picture of them. Oh my God, they were so cute! And freindly! We all got really good seats and they were in heaven. So, all in all, in was a really fun night! I'll still never get over that venue though - it's literally in the town's city hall building!

Today's a throwback picture to a Great Blue Heron I sighted in Wellesley waiting for LD a few years back.It's probably the closest I've ever been able to get to one of these creatures yet. It was just skulking around this little pond area looking for food. I don't think it got any that particular day though. In other news, going to a concert tomorrow night (more details to follow as it happens) and maybe a beach day on Sunday? I guess all that ocean air last week got to me.

At lunchtime today I went for a walk over by the Fresh Pond Reservation. I hadn't been there in decades. While walking a bit through Lusitania Meadow, I came upon two monarch butterflies doing some type of dance and chasing each other - was pretty cool to watch actually. I happened to pick this trail because of the name (Lusitania is the ancient name of Portugal, still used as the name of it in modern poetry, hey, my ancestry). In the future I'm going to need to explore this area further.

07:03 AM EST [Link] Dayful Oddities [comments: 0]
I've been testing out those 45s we got up at the antique store in NH and I'm pleased to say that they seem to be in perfect condition - not one scratch. Amazing! However, I didn't realize that the one 45 that LD picked out from Captain and Tennille was the Spanish lyrics version. That will be interesting to hear. We also picked up our professionally framed wall rug of Angel and Oreo and hung it in the sunroom. It came out really well!

Yesterday we grilled with some steak tips and salmon and veggies that we grew in the yard for dinner using these new skewers I got as one of my birthday presents. It came out great! Somehow grilling items seems to make the flavors pop much better. Then as the night wore on we (well, really I) wanted to watch this tv show about the Son of Sam where they actually talk to that nut today. Unfortunately the part that most people want to hear, why he did it, he wouldn't talk about - so that was basically a waste of an hour.

I mentioned a couple days ago how a lot of times we'll just be cruising around and something will catch our eye. It's not always the scenic stuff that I see but also the oddities. Here are two examples from our recent travels.

A strange cat like structure built out of huge hay bales in the driveway of some private residence.

weirdos02 (97k image)
A place where the owner apparently collects all manners of odd things, including old buildings, such as this somewhat dilapidated train station. I noticed it as we were driving by, I said like "Whoa! Is that a train station in the middle of a lawn? How did it get there?" I especially liked the broken down wagon out front. Apparently after doing some digging the owner was a collector of everything - this was a place those Pickers would go I am sure. Collector? Hoarder? The place is somewhat of a museum although it's been closed for over a year - the kids are trying to turn in into a wedding venue. Another example of things we see on the road that requires a double take or worth taking a shot of. You can actually have your wedding photo shoots here - if you like having dilapidated buildings in the backgrounds of your photos - really weird.

Here's just a small sampling of some pictures from the last two days. I'l; add to this entry with some text for each photo because there's a story behind each one. Also today, we made our first real watercolor painting.

kbp810_01 (34k image)kbp810_02 (35k image)

Great location to see various sailing ships and sloops pass by. The picture on the right is a private residence that supposedly was used in the opening shots of the television show 'Dark Shadows' although I could not really find any information that confirms that. In any case, it must have amazing views.

Another shot of a sailing vessel, this time some sort of three masted boat. I kind of have a thing for boats, I'm not sure why. Anyways I thought it looked kinda cool sailing into the horizon and the light at this particular time makes it looked bathed in a white glow, like they are sailing into a mysterious yet pleasurable place. Pic on the right is where we chilled out! Who wouldn't like waking up to this view?

kbp810_05 (39k image)kbp810_06 (41k image)

These two shots were taken just before sunrise, so I had to get up and out there really early, and that was not easy (thankfully LD nudged me!), but sometimes that what you have to do! The quiet except for the lapping of the waves is really quite stunning.

kbp810_07 (43k image)kbp810_08 (42k image)

So this particular morning, the place was having a watercolor class on the front lawn facing the ocean for anyone willing to try, so we said what the hell and did it. I will say at first I wasn't really pleased with my painting but over time it's grown on me. I actually learned quite a bit, about form, but also watercolor painting techniques in general. It is actually a quite forgiving medium, but I don't think it really meshes with my somewhat analytical mind. It's more about generalities and I'm a bit more detail oriented in that way. But that's kind of the point I suppose - it's not about the details but about the feeling of the scene - something I need to learn to let go at times so I can better appreciate what there is to offer me. However, we did find it extremely relaxing and couldn't believe that 3 hours went by so quickly. You don't even notice the time as your brushing over your painting, with water, and colors, and just going with the flow. We really did have a lot of fun with that. Pic on the right is just another boat with some pretty flowers in the foreground This is from the town center - a very busy yet picturesque location where in olden days much shipbuilding occurred.

If you'd like to get a better look at some of these pictures you can see them (along with some others) on my Insta feed for now.

On the way there we would pass various historical markers that I tried to read but LD would drive past them and I couldn't make them out. There's not much else up to do that way that would interest us. We did stop in an antique shop and got some more 45s for the jukebox though - we'll have to check them out to see if they play ok but they were so cheap figured it was worth a shot. Oh, anyways, back to goat yoga! The place is really cool as they are certainly not stingy with the baby goats - I believe there were 7 or 8 of them that would go around and do their thing. Some of them took naps for a while while the class was going on - but eventually they were all up and about. Basically everyone got as much goat time as they wanted, especially at the end, I was somewhat amazed that I could actually do most of the yoga poses having never done it before. But let's be honest - it's all about the goats and not the yoga. I would recommend this - they're really cool. For the evening we're staying at Garrison Inn, a historic property in Newburyport. It's basically a former estate named after gentleman from the area who published the Liberator - a staunch supporter of emancipation. It's very quaint and nice actually.

We had thought of going to the Caturday celebration on the Common this morning but we watched too many Datelines last night and decided to sleep in instead, so that didn't happen. We ended up going to some stores today and I ended up getting some men's activewear for the goat yoga after all. We also picked up some paint (a green to match the house) to paint the wood shed with which should be happening soon. Also picked up some USB sticks for LD and I - mostly for our mp3/iTunes music for the cars (especially hers since it doesn't have a CD player).I also picked up some pens with a writing width of 1.4mm. Most pens are 0.7 but I really like a thick line when I'm writing so I had to pop on those. For dinner tonight we're having leftovers from yesterday that we got at an awesome Greek restaurant down by the Norwood airport. We always forget about that place but the food is phenomenal. Basically just been getting ready to hit the road and enjoy some vacation R&R. Oh, the pic above is from Point Judith in Rhode Island but is from last year. I just felt like putting it up again, Sunday Feels and all...
