Out of the Blue

Well, the fits and starts of us fixing up the BlueTower to put it on the market seem to be ready to start again after being mostly fits lately. We have located a new contractor who should be able to start within a few weeks, which is the contractor version of immediately. He comes highly recommended, so we're optimistic things will work out. Of course we were also optimistic about the guy we ended up firing, but I'm trying not to think about that. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Blue, Keep a notebook of all discussions, requests, quotes, and payments made (listed by time/date). We are in the final stages of the same ordeal and it's amazing how unclear a simple punch list can end up being.

Listen to Mrs. Brisby, Blue. They're the smart ones, remember...

Happy birthday, Evil Jack! Jack Nicholson turns 80 today. Time to watch one of his best movies: The Raven (1963) also starring Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, and Peter Lorre. Directed by the legendary Roger Corman!

Strangely it will be the trash in space that will cause more harm than the trash on earth. Forever trapping us on this spinning blue ball, unless of course you're exceedingly rich.

Sorry, you are wrong. Ever heard about that "little" plastic problem in the oceans? BIG problem affecting all of us already. The (mostly illegal) export of trash into third world countries where it is just dumped even close to rivers and lakes turning them into liquid poison? Lead in the groundwater poisoning heaps of people? Chemicals in the water leading to very numbers of cancer disease? The burning of trash no matter how it pollutes air, water, farmgrounds, and so on? Just because we don't have as many problems in trash in first world countries it doesn't mean that we got an extreme problem with producing ridiculous amounts of trash and by that pollution.

I hope the next X-Files season is actually good. I only liked the lizard man episode from the last "revival".
