Fiona and me in the snow

A good day for hot tea

About noon, it started to rain. We haven't had much rain lately, and this rain will help immensely. It's one of those soaking, nurturing, growing rains that the farmers welcome and my ad curses because it makes the grass grow. Now to get tea which is brewed, hold the line as the Brits and Aussies say.

Tea is gotten, today it's plain tea, well a mix of English breakfast and darjeeling I know I spelled that wrong. It's good but I almost spilled it on my computer tower which wouldn't be a good thing.

I've spent the day, slow day as usual, waking up mostly. Easter's not going to be the happiest of Easters as my sister and her boyfriend just broke up. She was to go to visit him and his family in Jonesborro, so she's not going. She's a bit on edge.

I'm home alone now, my sister had to get out of the house, my parents had to go to Sam's to get a tire for her car which was "warn to the metal". Methinks that isn't too healthy?

So, I'm getting ready by priming myself with new Celtic which I've downloaded and will play some of it for the show tonight on KXUA. Doubt I'll be recording anything more today, my dad forgot and turned my computer off so I missed an episode of David Copperfield, but this isn't a huge deal because I'm sure someone'll have it eventually.

Well, shall continue listening to this music and relaxing, I might try napping before my show so I don't yawn northwest Arkansas and the world to sleep. Maybe we'll have listeners from all over this week, I think the state count was 7 last week. More later.

Fiona and me in the snow


I've never seen the movie, but I might say that I had a bad day at black rock today for my show. I might actually have it fixed now, but too late. Too late indeed.

The show went well for about 30 minutes, the the bottom fell out and then the connection kept dropping in and out. Turns out, it looks like it was the wireless connection which I have now repositioned. It looks like that it's done the trick, haven't had a drop out yet, and I have full strength now that I've moved the connector away from the computer.

It was good to call Chris and talk to him while the whole thing died. Actually, he helped get me going, and I haven't talked to him since. Oh well, more tomorrow, an un dork like writing tomorrow I promise. Must get some sleep. I've been having lots of "issues" lately, i.e. I just made myself a cup of tea, and then when I got in here I realized that I had a cp of cold tea half full already here. Oh yeah, I'm smart, very smart. More later once I'm not a freak, could be a while.
