There was no change in my weight, but I have alarmingly high blood pressure.
Mostly today I sat and worked on a bunch of challenge caches, especially an alphabet one. This is for caches that were put in before July 30, 2008 and found after that date. This meant that the "Z is for Zebra" that we found near San Simeon didn't count, nor did the "x" cache we found for the southern California alphabet challenge, (put in too late) or the "x" cache in Yuba City (found too soon.) I resorted to looking at other people's lists and located some in the San Jose area: then it dawned on me that there was a series by the cacher named Nazgul and maybe some would be easier than others. So I looked his caches up, and lo! We'd found one in August of '08 and I'd just missed it! So I managed to fill out the spreadsheet. I'll make a bookmark list out of this one, but the final is back in Big Sur (and a terrain 3) so maybe we'll go to Monterey on one of Rich's week off (if he's up to it) and do this one.
I finished that late at night. Pretty much a waste of a day. I'm still filling out a bunch of these challenge caches. It's fun to find something that fulfills the requirements, and it's also nice to remember each of these caches.
I did take the dog for a walk which was nice.
The White House energy policies make the US less competitive.
No surprise, Matsui doesn't want any spending cuts at all. She's Pelosi's mini-me.
Libya's UN Ambassador turns on Qaddafi.
Rockford has a nice museum, too.
Christopher Hitchens calls 0bama our Swiss President.
Shuttle Launch. Nifty video.
Tea party demonstrators I've seen on TV last 2 years appear angry, but nice. A few in here, seem a little nutty. BUT MOSTLY, the Wisconsin protesters look like out of control, mad, screeching crazy people. They shout and scream so much. Have you noticed that? Instead of sending pizzas like the hate-America Egyptians did, can we call nearby pharmacy, order Valium to be sent over?
