Thursday 10- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 63 and 89 degrees, winds from the NW at 16 to 24 with gusts up to 40 MPH, humidity around 16 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 84. Northwest wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 61. Northwest wind around 17 mph, with gusts as high as 26 mph.”

I forgot to add to yesterday’s journal that we had a power outage at 9am and lasted for six and a half hours. My whole house is solar powered and wouldn’t have known about it only that the wireless broadband went down. I had thought it was something to do with my equipment and I spent some time checking everything before I called Mojavewifi.com who told me of the outage.
It was mighty windy today so I messed around with Ubuntu OS on my Dell Mini 9. I found that it could record songs! I recorded a bunch of my original songs and was going to share them on the internet, but unfortunately I recorded them in a file system called OGG where I should have done it on something else (I think). I really like Ubuntu; it loads fast and everything works on the Dell netbook, unlike Windows 7. Now I just have to get used to all the funny names of these extensions (like OGG). I finally think Ubuntu is ready for primetime!
I watched finished season one of “Kyle XY” and started on season two.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

Thursday 27- I did my stretches, dang windy this morning.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 52 and 81 degrees, winds W/SW 8 to 23 with gusts up to 39 MPH, humidity around 23 percent, clear skies in the morning but overcast later in the day.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Sunny, with a high near 78. West northwest wind between 11 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 53. West northwest wind between 11 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 26 mph.”
Well the wind was really blowing this morning but that’s alright because I have stuff to do around the house.
I took the 4Gig SSD drive out of my Dell Mini 9 and put in a 32Gig SSD drive that had Windows 7 I wasn’t using and installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. After messing around installing drivers for the wireless and got that going I was up and running. Actually it seems like a nice OS so far now that it has enough disk space. I installed Adobe Flash and was able to watch Youtube.com and Hulu.com on it.
Ginger dropped by with a book for me called “Star Trek: Prime Directive” (1990) by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. I’ll read that when I get done with the Jack Higgins book I’m currently reading.
I watched a couple of episodes of “Warehouse 13” to see what it was about. It wasn’t too bad. It’s about two Secret Service agents that look for lost artifacts that have special powers and store them in a government warehouse hidden in South Dakota for safe keeping.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
