  • Solar Eclipse Today
  • I tuned in to the noon news today only to find 99% of the program on ALL TV stations affixed on the solar eclipse occurring across the world today. Yes, an eclipse is a spectacular wonder of science, but then I observed all the douchewaffle reporters asking the same stupid questions and thus realized it was like a democratic revival since the only ones at these places of observance seemed to be young, out of work, libtards, and the only ones 'working' were the TV people. It's hard to believe that many people took the day off work/called in sick to watch the eclipse. It is more believable that the majority did not have real jobs, unless you count the fry cooker at McDonalds as a real job, so that makes more sense. By the way, I watched and ate my lunch, then went back to my shop to work on a customers 8N tractor...

  • Shirley and I were on the boat, anchored in a quiet bay in the BC Gulf Islands, but below the 49th. It was a bright clear sunny day. Quite a few folks came to the nearby beach to watch. We used the sextant on board to watch it from start to finish. Cool.
    We both put in enough years at the daily grind, to earn some full time off.

  • I don't have a job to be AWOL. I was harsh on those who were habitually AWOL when I worked in manufacturing. My department AWOL rate was lower than half of the rate for the rest of entire facility.
    Now, guess where we were, yesterday. Hopkinsville, Kentucky! AWESOME, SIGHT!!!!
    We have (still here) a room in Sherpardsville, a suburb of Louisville. We got in this morning at 12:30am after 7 hours to drive about 150 miles. Exhausted? YES! My wife was so fatigued that she acted like a drunk trying to walk into the hotel.
    Was it worth it? YES! Even she said so.
    Looking at traffic on I-65 north. Very heavy. We are waiting for a couple hours. About 400 miles to get home. We will go through Indy, Ft. Wayne and Toledo.
    See "ya'll" tonight.

    This morning It Rained and we worried that it would be cloudy all day and we would miss the big event. Then it turned partly cloudy.. and just at the Right time.... the sky opened up and we saw The Perfect Eclipse.. and then it started clouding up again. I took a picture but A Camera canít catch what the Eye Can see.. When the Eclipse happen I took the picture and It looked like the regular Sun but dimmer. it didnít show the blacked out sun.

    I saw on the News.. that there was one man came from Australia to see this. That' a long way to come for a Two minute sight. After the Eclipse with in 5 minutes it clouded up again. Later we got 2" of pounding rain and severe lightening. They say more storms are expected tonight.

    It's been a full and exciting day.
