    I've dialed in the motion detection, it only gets people on my porch. and a cat. He's big, gray, and shaggy. Visits my porch every night, I've grown to like him. Mayhap I'll meet him someday.

    Ha. to load books on my reader, and my mother's, I had to go through an exhausting process of converting all books to remove a tag so they would show up on the proprietary Amazon reader on the Fire tablets. Huge pain, made worse by Amazon making software changes to stymie people like me.. Now I finally jail broke the damn things and side loaded a reader that will eat anything, so I can finally just dl the books and load them on the tablet like normal people.

    sheesh.

    The tablets were very inexpensive though, but decent quality, and I've been otherwise happy with them. I have 4, 2 of which are used by mom on a rotating basis so she always has 1 to read with while I'm working on the other.

    It's predicted by some astronomers we will be able to find life signatures in the planets near us, if they exist, within 10-20 years as these instruments come on line. Along with advances SETI has made due to recent advances in computing, it's now the thinking we'll soon know if we have company out there or not.

    I think I'm on the hope not side.

    Cats are back.

    They completely disappeared when I saw that coyote, but last night I saw all 3 of them on different security alerts, including my favorite, big gray shaggy guy.

    They must have known coyote was around and laid low for a while.

    I'm still watching this; it's 7 seasons of like 22 episodes per. - but they're only 1/2hr. I've ff'ed through some of many episodes, and skipped several entirely because I've seen them before.
    But it's so much fun, jack and lemon just kill me; this is a great way to decompress and laugh. This is next

    Tina Fey has ALWAYS been one of my favorites. I love her sense of humor.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    Baby hair with a woman's eyes, I can feel you watching in the night..
    All alone with me and we're waiting for the sunlight, when I feel cold you warm me...
    When I feel I can't go on you come and hold me, it's you and me forever...

    Sara Smile, won't you smile a while for me?
