watch it.

Plus, spline me spline me, 170k, Remember the Maine cottage), A Bridge Too Far, shipping off twelve year old and less.

Poll: Closed in memory of Bob.



It was a good weekend, lazy enough for me even if I didn't get a long thorough workout. I did get some gardening in, and cleaned out some of the garage so I could get to my bike (it's like those sliding tile puzzles, you have to move ten things to get to the one thing you want). No start or working horn on the bike yet, it may take a while longer.

Sunday I put in six screens, and had to respline one. I had to get a better spline tool, my cheap piece of plastic one is falling apart. We're ready for more 80 degree days.

This week has been busy, not quite as busy as last week, but still darn busy. This weekend will be busy, there's a phenomenalneighborhood sale this weekend, but the girls want to do stuff that interferes with that, you know, playdates, a talent show.

Also, the Tercel hit 170k miles last week, I didn't have a party.

Remember the Maine, or at least, remember to pay for Maine, I sent off a deposit for a week's cottage rental in Maine, we'll do the family vacation thing in August, in the Wells Beach area.

I finished A Bridge Too Far. Who knows, if Monty had asked the Dutch army in exile how to get to Arnhem (turn left and cross the Rhine, and then take the bridge), if the 1st Airborne had tried a coup de main, if they had dropped a regiment right south of the bridge, if they had tested the radios to get the right frequencies, it may have worked. But, in the end, the British got slaughtered, and the Nazis hung on for another six months.

Other than Twilight Zones, the only significant TV I've seen was Disney's Hatching Pete, (no, not even Desperate, we have a few episodes wasting away on the DVR), a made for TV movie with much of the current Disney stable about a shy, unknown high school boy who reaches his full potential after being hornswaggled by his best friend into wearing a Rooster mascot costume for the basketball team.

< The Aftermath wasn't so good, either. | My presentation went okay. I'm leaving on a jet plane. >

A history of WWI that included a bit about the relationship between Monty, Bradley and Eisenhower as an example of eidetic variation.

eidetic variation is a pretty simple one by lm (4.00 / 1) #7 Fri May 01, 2009 at 10:21:51 AM EST
You imagine something in your head. Then you change something about the image in your head. Is that something still the same kind of something? If so, the thing you changed isn't part of what makes that thing the kind of thing it is. This can lead to an understanding of attributes are necessary for an object to have in order to be that kind of object.

For example, imagine a square. Now imagine that square without a fourth side. It's no longer a square so having that fourth side is part of what makes a square a square.

Wells by ad hoc (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri May 01, 2009 at 09:58:20 AM EST
Maybe we could talk the Boston area Husi people to Downeaster up to Wells for a beer?

I'd like that by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri May 01, 2009 at 10:13:52 AM EST
but I'd have to sell the family on it, or at least my absence for the evening.

Schedule by ad hoc (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri May 01, 2009 at 10:29:31 AM EST
The current schedule says the last train back leaves at about 8:30, so it would probably be more of an afternoon thing. But the schedule sometimes changes once it gets warm.

Maybe everyone could go to one of the lobstah shacks for beer and crustaceans.

bike trouble by garlic (2.00 / 0) #12 Sun May 03, 2009 at 11:40:10 AM EST
this has been the first year in a while that after winter storage my bike started up fine. The dry rotted rear tire means it's still not road ready though.


you got a lot on your plate by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #13 Mon May 04, 2009 at 09:34:12 AM EST
with your class and all.

I tried to start it yesterday, on a fresh charge, no luck, and then everything died. I'm going to need hours with a multimeter to find out what wrong.

lack of a garage by garlic (2.00 / 0) #14 Mon May 04, 2009 at 09:40:37 AM EST
is one of my excuses for not working on the bike myself. But mostly, I want to ride it, not work on it. Hopefully it'll be ready to go next weekend.

I'm not even a Facebook friend by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #17 Tue May 05, 2009 at 06:50:29 AM EST
let alone close enough to impose on.

you posted on his interweb page by coryking (2.00 / 0) #18 Tue May 05, 2009 at 10:05:05 AM EST
As a result, you are entitled to crash at his pad.  Hell, hulver would let you crash at his pad, no?  You can crash at my pad* should you like.  As long as you have met somebody, according to internet regulations, you may crash at their place.

*this is not an actual offer.
