Dam buster

Here’s LRN2 breaking a dam and letting all the poor little people downstream go to their watery fate.  Those must be some pretty small people.  Also, that’s a pretty easy dam to break.  Great Art taken at the science museum we visited on Christmas Eve, whatever its name was.

Anyway.  No posts for a week.  Yet again.  I’ve been busy, as usual.  On the other hand, there’s not much to tell.  Yet again.  I’m getting up, commuting, working, eating, programming, and going to bed.  Things could be worse, though.

I have been spending quite a bit of time on the old programming gig.  Mostly, I’ve been working on LRN4’s website.  Some refinements are still needed, but it’s looking good and working well and it has gone live!  Check out Shannon’s Book Nook!  And tell a friend.  Tell lots of friends.  Buy all our playsets and toys.  Do it now.

I’ve also made good progress on my new iPhone app.  Got the UI done, with the possible exception of some simple graphics for the background.  Now I have to figure out how to get a datastream into it.  From Twitter to you.  That’s my plan.  I found an API that ought to get me what I need.  Just have to figure out how to implement it.  I’m hoping to spend a few minutes on that tonight.  I’d like to get the app done and submitted within a week or so.

Then on to my next app idea.  Don’t have one yet, but I’m sure something will come to me.  I think I need ideas that have a bit more mass market appeal.  Also that will make me filthy stinking rich.  So far, only I’m filthy and stinking.  Two out of three!

We’ve had a bit of nice weather here in Lardville for the past week or so.  It’s been sunny and quite warm, considering the season.  The weekend days were pretty much at or a bit over 70 degrees, about which I can’t complain.  Turned quite windy today, with the high maybe up to 60.  It felt positively cold.

I stayed home from work today with a bit of a sick stomach.  Feeling much better by this evening, so I’ll be back to work tomorrow.  I enjoyed lazing around a bit.  Maybe a bit too much, in fact.  Just exactly when can I retire?

Had our friend Art over for dinner again last night.  He’s spending his Monday evenings with us until his wife gets home, which might be a few more weeks.  We enjoy his visits.  Last night, he brought a bunch of stuff he collected during his mission to Japan a few many years ago, and he gave us a very interesting little briefing on the subject.  Really enjoyed it.

Well, that’s about it for today.  I’ll try to get back to writing every weekday.  In the meantime, I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife employment opportunity:  airport-dwelling monkey!  (Bonus secondary employment opportunity: monkey-adopted raccoon.)

See you tomorrow.
