Naw, I'm not going back to smoking (although I plan to smoke again when I get old). I just read that a small radiation plume from Japan has been detected in Sacramento, "but officials say it poses no threat". This is from a New York Times article, and is reported by European officials today. Should I believe what I'm told by European officials, is a very frightening piece of news if it is true, but is downplayed by unidentified officials as posing no risk. So if I seem to have a glow about me, maybe that's because I am a hot radioactive mama!
There is so much I could add to this but I promised myself I would stay away from controversial subjects. Just say that I am willing to give up my few technological toys in exchange for the worldwide ban on nuclear energy. That should come as a surprise to nobody!
It is so very nice having my laptop back with it's regular keyboard. Just a question to those of you who might be using a tiny Microsoft computer similar to the iPad - I think one commenter mentioned a Netbook. Not that I want a Netbook or anything like it, but I want a justification for keeping my Dell 19" monitor. I love that monitor and am not going to give it away when I finally part with the Dell computer.
After a brief respite with a couple of warm days it has turned cold and rainy again. Weather has become so erratic and unpredictable the past few years so anything can happen, but normally the rainy season should soon be over. Then by May if I'm not out of Sacramento, you will hear me cryin' about the heat.
Spring must be close because I'm getting a strong urge to get outdoors in the mountains, preferably the Appalachians.
