What I’m reading: Al-Sabah: History and Genealogy of Kuwait’s Ruling Family, 1752-1986 Taught myself anodizing titanium this morning.   Easier than I thought, but picayune little details that were time consuming.  It was fun.  Tinkery. Had a nice hike with Sandra and Molly today, it went by much faster than usual. Sandra found a chest of drawers …

What I’m reading today: Siddhartha Did a lot of running around today, with only a bit on non-wheel-spinning going on.   Safeway, Ace, Staples, PetSmart, Golden Bone, UPS Store.   Felt like more.  Returned an Instant-Pot that I bought, for, I got no idea why.   I enjoy the cooking process, I also enjoy some of it that takes …

What I’m reading: The Power of Moments: Why Certain Experiences Have Extraordinary Impact Long, contemplative walk this morning, made it past what Sandra and I call “The Will Smith Rocks” (A group of rocks that I met Will Smith, the actor at, it was anti-climactic, but he liked our Dog).  Was able to piece together how …

What I’m reading: Mathematical Foundations of Statistical Mechanics Got some good writing done today, Ishii has been dealt with, his pain and suffering was cathartic.  Jax’s Mom is going to be more detailed and less pokey-pokey, so I figure all day tomorrow should do it. Luckily Sandra is taking art classes (and doing an amazing job …

What I’m reading: Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts Today was a mixed bag.  Got two recliners for the media room and Sandra really likes them.  Had to do a bit of driving to get them though, so it sorta blew through the day. Spent an hour reformatting the …

What I am reading: When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Got 783 words done today, mostly in torturing poor Professor Ishii.   Trust me, dude deserves it. Met a family (Locals) while Molly was out for her evening constitutional, nice people.  Had an old brown labrador. Did some further winnowing of my electronic shelves, new motto …
