T truckers

Here are LRN1 and LRN2 doing a little Model T trucking. I really want a Model T. Really. I want one. Really. Please buy me one. Great Art taken at the Sacramento automotive museum on Christmas Eve and part of my famous Machinery series.

No post yesterday. Many thanks to good old Anon for noticing. I love you, man. Or woman. Or boy. Or girl. Or other.

Nice day today – it rained some and cleared up a bit for a while too. Got a few things done from my exceptionally long list. Lots more to get done tomorrow, which will be a bit difficult because I have a Young Women activity to attend all afternoon and LRN5’s scheduled to come for her birthday in the evening. We’ll have a nice time, at any rate, and I think I’ll manage to get the most urgent things done, including a few church callings. Plus some puttering.

Things are otherwise fairly normal. I’m trying to figure out the best way to get a remote control working with my old Mac Mini G4. It’s LRN4’s machine right now, but she’s inheriting LRN1’s laptop when he leaves on his mission and she doesn’t think she’ll want two computers. Why, I can’t imagine, but there you have it. I’m scheduled to re-inherit the old Mini, and I’m thinking of having it take the place of one of my media center machines – possibly Ted, the downstairs machine. I have a nice old Dell tower working there, but the Mini would be a bit slicker, I believe, if I can get it working right. A remote is a must. I’ve discovered this solution, which I like very much, not to mention that the price is right, but I would also like something that works with a standard Apple remote. They used to make this, but it doesn’t seem to be available anymore. The remote I bought for the PC doesn’t seem to be compatible, which is a true shame. Gotta get something figured out.

And it’s time for bed. I’ll leave you with today’s food violence news: taco tossing. Frankly, I think he acted prudently and reasonably, given the outrageous provocation, but you just can’t toss a taco in Alaska and expect to get away with it.

See you tomorrow.
