Back In Business

By yesterday, the entire family was suffering from a severe case of computer withdrawal. Sweltering temperatures have kept us out of our office for over a week now. Each day we check the weather forecast, but our hopes are quickly dashed. With no end in sight, Calico made the decision  and moved three of our computers out of the office, dispersing them to cooler areas of the house. Today I'm sitting in my cool bedroom, happily perched at my PC. Who cares about the weather?

Today and tomorrow will be devoted to completing an overdue graphics tutorial. On Wednesday, I'll be back to blogging on a regular basis. See you then.

Cold Goulash?

The goulash has not been stirred for a few days due to illness. But cold? Hardly. Temperatures here have peaked near 105F for the past 3 days. The AC can't even begin to keep up with it. So we've been retreating to our bedrooms, the coolest part of the house, with cold drinks and good books. The kitchen goes unused except to turn out salads and smoothies. The office with 5 PC's is a great place to be, if you're in the mood for a sauna. There's been rumors that the heat will break, but at 10am, it's already in the 90's. Promises of rain too. Hopefully, they will become a reality soon and life will get back to normal.

Convictions? Yes, it will be back soon. Maybe a new installment next weekend, if the weather cooperates.

Stay cool.
