 jim  Snow Day
Channel 13 News was at my bus stop this morning. They didn't interview me  :^( .  Our bus was shut down. There was black ice everywhere. A bus driver going the other way yelled out "Go to the stop on Lakehurst (about a mile away). Well, I, being in great health, a leader and all, took a deep breath, got in front of the crowd and went straight home. I was out there for over an hour.

 jim  1and1 took another dump!
Sorry bout that. I can't believe I pay them all of that money for these websites...har har. is an excellent web hosting site. They're cheap, and they're up 98% of the time.
If you want 99.9% of the time, buy a Tandem!

 jim  Went to a Blue Grass Festival
We saw the IMax at the Louisville Science Museum earlier ($4 x 2).
Anyway, we were just wanting to do something, so we thought we'd head out to the Taylorsville Lake.
Somewhere along the way, we realize we missed a turn, and ran into the last hour of a Blue Grass Festival.
So, it was free!
While there, we heard explosions. A fellow told us it was coming from Fort Knox.
After the festival, we went to Fort Knox. The trip took us through a one lane road with corn stalks everywhere.
That GPS takes us down some wild roads, I gotta tell ya.
We ended going through the Knobs, and finally arrived at Fort Knox.
I took a picture of a tank that said Fort Knox on it, and started to turn around.
WOW. The military guys were all over us, and I wasn't even near the visitor information area out side of the base.
Obviously, I shouldn't have even taken the exit off of Dixie Highway.
They had me delete the picture. What got me is, when they were coming after the truck, they all put their gloves on.
Its kind of interesting that I can see the base through Maps.Google and not through Maps.Live.
Maps.Live has it blocked out. Good old censorship!

 jim  New LVDUD features.
haha. If you click on the menu items above, a screen will show you the links for the menu listing, and it will show you a list of logs. I think its cool.
I made the change because I may get an IPhone.
The IPhone uses a Safari internet browser, and it admittedly has a few bugs.
Probably the first one most of us will notice is its menu listing for "Safari Home Pae". They didn't key in "Page" right. Well, my site looks great on the IPhone, except you can't log on, and the drop down menu goes UNDER the first frame. Thats just weird, but its easy to handle, coding wise.
Actually, I like the menu much better now. I like the Sign In screen better too!

 Jim  Ahhhhhh...the pleasures of sleep.
We started the night off with Iggs Benedict.
Its beef tips, tomatoes, nacho cheese, poached eggs and grilled toast.
To the untrained tongue, it might be repugnant.
But I have a cona-sewer's tongue.
BTW - That is our dining room table.
Its a fold up thingy that folds up into nothing, and we've taken it way past the manufacturers dreams. Its a laptop stand, dining room table, printer and phone stand. Its the Swiss Army's concept of tables, and weighs about 3lbs.
Half the time when I'm home, all I can see of Becky is her head sticking up over our two laptops.
Then we went to Sullys last night and had two Hurricanes.
Hurricanes are like cherry slushies with a real kick to them.
We came back home and
I had two Soma's. I know, you're not supposed to mix sleeping pills with alcohol.
But, if feels SO GOOD.
Last night was the first good nights sleep I've had since we got here.
Six hours a night is about average for where we're living. 
Its hard to justify sleeping when theres so much going on just 5 minutes away.
I just keep telling myself...hey, ohhhh what the heck; we're all just going to grow old and die anyway. Why not stay up and have FUN! I'll sleep when I'm gone.

 Jim  Of all the places - Ky insurance is the best.
I've got decent health insurance now for $320 a month, and its not group insurance.
I think thats really incredible.
Its Blue Cross / Blue Shield.
I was paying $620 a month in Nevada, for worse coverage.
I think it was something like $20,000 out of pocket. It stunk. I had to drop it.
If I remember right, in Nevada, the State Health/Insurance Commission says they don't have to have a general group for independant coverage. I'd have to have two people on my payroll to qualify for my own group health plan.
I got declined by them in Nevada as an independant.
Here, they have a group for independants.

 Jim  Problem with having fun is.
On Friday, I lit the candle on one end.
On Saturday, I lit the candle on the other end.
I woke up at 5 am with a terrible leg cramp.
Oooo....I hate those.
Today, we were planning on going to Rod's church, then we were going to head off to Mammoth Cave for hiking.
I'm all burned out.
So, I guess its going to a day of limping around the area.
Maybe I can get Becky to nurse me back to
