We are having a hot spell here. We are used to perfect weather. The kind of weather where you don't need air conditioning, so we don't have it. It's been to hot for my laptop, so I can only use it in the wee hours. Too hot for batik wax outside too. Also too hot for Chica, who died yesterday after laying an egg. She hadn't layed an egg in a long time.

I am still trying to get my snapshots together. Nearly there. When I am done, I will upload them to Snapfish and then store them on a disk before I delete them from my hard drive. After that, I will upload the pictures of how my projects are progressing. I have been taking them, but I am trying to clear the clutter and haven't wanted to add to it in the process.

We are planning a trip to Monterey for Joseph's birthday. He has been wanting to go to the Maritime Museum there for a while. I thought it would be adventurous to go for an overnight stay in a hotel for his birthday, so we are going there. I looked up the museum on the web and found that it is mostly sailing, with a little WW2. I don't think the sailing would interest him much, he is mostly interested in military stuff. But.....there is a Presidio Museum in Monterey.......

I have also been reading a book: Someone Comes To Town, Someone Leaves Town, by Cory Doctorow. A very odd book, but you care about the characters, at least some of them. Or so I thought. Then, around page 234, everything changed for me and I knew who they were. Who they were for me. I don't know who Mr Doctorow meant them to be, but I know who they are to me.

The last page of the book says:"The text of this book is available as a free Creative Commons-licensed download at I haven't looked there, but I read it for free the old way---from the library.
