Saw My First Galaxy Last Night!

No, not the old car! Finally saw another Galaxy with my telescope last night. No, I can’t tell you which one it is; I’m barely able to tell what direction I’m looking! It was kinda sorta north east when I first saw it. Still blurry/hazy but it was definitely another Galaxy. Cool! Sure will be glad when we get moved into our dome and out in the dark so I can maybe see more things. In all the shows I’ve watched where they show a galaxy, the center is always a bright ball of light. My question is: Why can’t we see this light from the center of our own Galaxy? We pointed the wrong way or something? Even if it is thousands of light years away; it’s had thousands of years to reach us. Especially if the center of our Galaxy is as large and bright as the others I’ve been shown. Hmmm…

Other than that: not much going on. Downloaded and watched the first 5 episodes of the new Bionic Woman. Cool show. I like how they have Katie Sakoff(?) (Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica) playing the (failed) prototype. And when you listen to the program with earphones on the sound is pretty neat.

Guess I’ll clean up around the house. Dishes need to be done! And it’s a really nice day out too. Damn. If I had my digger up at the property I’d head on up and move some dirt around or burn some slash or something. But, then, the way it works around here; if I had my digger up at the property it’d be raining like crazy today! Ah, life in Warshington…

I Really Enjoy Smallville!

What a cool program! This week Clark (afraid of heights) went over a wall from the top of a Tall building to save Lana. Funny how extenuating circumstances can make you forget your fears… Only took a couple of hours to download this episode.

Not much else going on right now. SWMBO, Robert and I went to breakfast and then bowled 3 games. Now we’re just kind of lounging around the house. Finally watched the 1st episode of the new Bionic Woman. Killer! Sounds like the same guy(s) that write the music for Battlestar Galactica have been hired for this show. Sounds Great!

Moved The Digger…

From my landlords place up the street to mine and spent a couple of hours with the pressure washer getting the mud off it. Dirty Job! Moved it because it is WAY too muddy for me to get anything done on his pond. Will probably be that way until June or so. And I really don’t want to have to dig the digger out! Muddy!

Not too much going on around here. Weather has been really nice the past couple of days so I’ve spent as much time outdoors as I can. Didn’t go to the property ’cause I have the digger here and really nothing to do up there. Since we probably won’t get financing until March/April 08 there really isn’t an reason for me to go up there as much as I’m used to. Hell, even if we got financing today we probably wouldn’t get started building until March/April anyway ’cause of the weather. Damn!

Thinking about saving up to get an XBox 360 and this game, Air Combat 6. The video’s I found for it are cool! I’m NOT really a ’gamer’ but I do like flight simulators. I have X-Plane and MS Flight Sim X (and some others). I have ’Lock On’ and occasionally fire it up to go kill something else! Trying to make my own flights/Movies too. Think I’ll go do that now…

Hell Of A Windstorm!

Came through yesterday. Lost power about 1500 (or so) and didn’t get it back until about midnight. Generator worked great! We all spent time in the living room near the wood stove trying to decide who would be best for different characters from the Dragonriders Series of books.
Took SWMBO to dinner at Taco Bell and made our usual Albertson’s stop. It’s been raining (dumping!!!) since we got home so I haven’t unloaded the car yet. Man, it’s raining hard!
Looks like we’re not getting financing until about March 2008. Got a couple of ‘lates’ on our overdraft that’s kicking our butts right now. Damn!
