Da Yoff

BPgoldYes, it’s another day off.

I have had lunch. I gutted some sausages, chopped some onion, tomato and made patties. It was a lazy man’s lunch, because I am feeling lazy today; well, lazier than most days.

I am sitting her quaffing a Brazilian beer called Black Princess; which goes well with the stiffling heat.

My fan is working like crazy, blowing hot air over me.

Exciting things I’ve done today: I’ve washed the dishes, watered the plants and eaten two white guava for breakfast. I have also has a successful morning posting on blogs, this is the second last.

No classes today, so I should indulge in some Nap-fu practice.


Today some net sites are slow. It is part of the protest against FCC fast lanes depriving us small people of speed.

Today, my Eco-Crap CTWW post was about spreading the ‘green’ word. Hop on over to CTWW and check it out. You may find it interesting.

Now for a beauty. I have never seen a volcano begin its eruption before. I have seen volcanoes erupting, but never this

Pretty awesome. Especially the shock wave above and later the sound and shock reaches the boat.

Found here.

The Japanese are fools. Looks like they’re going to restart some of their nuclear reactors. After Fukushima, you’d think they had learned something, but oh no!

Interesting question. Where’s Heaven?

stairs-to-heaven-1Posted on a religious type blog. For me heaven is not a place, it’s a feeling. A knowing that I have lead a decent life and won’t be subject to the hell fires.

The stairs to heaven are each day in our day in our lives.

I am an atheist, heaven and hell don’t exist as physical planes, rather they are what we do and don’t do in our allotted spans here in the physical world.

The beer has gone, I’m off… you know where.


It could happen today

Weatherwise, it could happen today. There were clouds in the sky at 8am and the day started distinctly cooler, although has since heated up, but not to yesterday’s level.

The clouds have remained a little.

Last night the forecast gave us hope, predicting rain for Sunday and lower temps. We so need this.

The weekend has started, five days of R & R, well it will be the first R, but the second R remains in doubt, my pay still hasn’t been paid, but I am hopeful that my neighbour will pay me the three past rentals for my garage tonight, he promised last night.

Representative imgage. If they served me beer with that head, I'd have a coronary!

I still haven’t got to the supermarket, too hot; so it looks like my lunch will be a repeat of yesterday’s cheeseboard and beer. I did go out for pizza and beer last night after class, so I am not starving. I won’t fade away just yet… there’s too much of me.

Something is rumbling under the planet. Another volcano has erupted, this time on the island of Java, the most populous, in Indonesia.

The east coast of USA is getting a double dose of extreme cold, and Britain is suffering more flooding. The extremes of cold in the north, and our opposite extremes in the south are making for dismal reading in the news.

At the end of March we are heading into spring in the north and autumn in the southern hemisphere. It all makes me wonder what we’ll be in for when winter arrives here.

Hora de verão (daylight savings, summer time) finish for us tomorrow night. The world can return to normal. I hate this chopping and changing. Just leave the time alone. One thing is that it will be cooler for me to walk to work an hour later, I will have more shade.

I am still avoiding any news of the Winter Olympics. Hooray for me!

Venezuelans are waking up a little. People are tired of rising inflation and basic needs product shortages. Chavez little social experiment is finally coming unstuck, and Maduro can’t fix it; blaming all the countries problems on the opposition instead of looking in the mirror. There’s going to be a very bloody revolution there shortly.

The spectre of the BP oil spill continues. Now we are talking Atlantic and yellow tuna, whose breeding grounds are the Gulf of Mexico, are having heart problems caused by the chemicals used to control the oil spill. Man just can’t leave well enough alone, we are hell bent on destroying the planet.

Soon, I should get ready to go and pay the rent. While I’m out, I will consider dinner somewhere air conditioned with beer.
