Suddenly Sunday

1a

On Sept. 14, 2015, at almost the exact same time that a pair of sprawling gravitational-wave detectors heard the last gasp of a collision between two black holes, another, more perplexing observation took place. Over 500 kilometers above the surface of the Earth, the orbiting Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope logged a passing burst of gamma rays, a high-energy form of light. The signal was so slight that the NASA scientists who run the satellite didn’t notice it at first.

    Stupid computer acting up today, something about a critical update removed a desktop icon that I cannot remember what it was GRRRRR! Slow, screen bouncing up and down until the page loads, a general PITA, did one system restore been into the event logs, no indication what the hell is going on, back to it some more.

    Apparently I fixed it after running Wupdate troubleshooting, but my icon is still gone, probably some Trump-heads at MS again.

    Trump-head = Dunder-head

    The warm-up spell has started. It’s 36° right now and each day into the week it will get a little warmer. Good bye snow!

    Been suffering silently here, back on Prednisone after I could not climb stairs or turn a door knob, (keyboard poking is easy). Now the constant muscle pain is gone, replaced with the semi-squirts which are not that uncomfortable. Still weak but not as I was before, organizing stuff to move into the new place as soon as the paperwork is done.

    Finally after over a year of scouring I found a newer Modular Home in a park 17 miles away, paying cash from house proceeds so it will be lot rent and utilities only to pay, cheap living for this wobbly old dude.

    The usual in 45- minutes. Despite being clear, no wildlife. Some people out for group strolls.

    Don’t think Bernie will succeed in his endeavor…

    But isn’t it great to have his voice out there?
