Things have been quiet here, even more than the usual slow pace…
I am back now from a trip to Europe where I left the family with the kids maternal grandparents and I won’t see them for nine weeks in all.Â This was a bad plan, but it was the plan.Â I have been home for a couple of weeks already, but I managed to lose my laptop traveling.Â Yes, that is a big pain in the behind and it has made many previously simple and efficient things more difficult.Â Mind you, it could have been much worse as the external hard drive I always keep in my laptop bag was not in my laptop bag and this is where the real pain would have been felt!Â While on the subject of losing things, my wallet fell out of my camel pack while on a two hour night-time mountain bike ride in the woods a mere week and a half later!Â But on that one I lucked out big time and found quickly it the next day when I went back to look, very lucky on many counts…
That’s just a lot of blah, blah, blah to excuse the absence of adult supervision, which should improve now.
I have also fallen behind in the weekly installments of The Bottleneck Years by H.E.Taylor – three chapters behind, which is two more chapters behind than I thought I was.Â I just published one and we will haveÂ three two-chapter weeks to catch up.Â How are people liking it so far?Â I am enjoying it.
Since not much has gone on here except sparring with the resident troll, I thought I might post these three real live interviews with an actual climate troll that went around a while ago.Â As hard as it is to believe, they are often real people (maybe even multi-millionaires 😉
Part 1 – Meet the Troll:
Part 2 – The Troll Slayer:
Part 3 – The Showdown:
A long time ago, troll slaying, or at least zombie slaying, was my purpose.Â It was something I tried to do with calm, civility and tenacity…but somewhere along the line I lost my way. <sigh>
