Maybe I Can Get Some Nature Photos


Tucson Weather Today


Good Gravy! I woke up at 2:22 this morning and could not get back to sleep. So I got up and turned on the computer. Caught up on some blog reading that I had been neglecting. Then started thinking about what I could possibly write about here in the blog so dad-blamed early in the morning.

Well, for one thing, it seems that the New Atheists, the hyper activist Atheists, are still bickering with the common Atheists about their most recent big split. The A group, which stands for the old Atheist and the A+ group which symbolizes the new and improved group (A with an added plus-sign group) all of whom believe that true Atheists should not only believe there is no evidence for the existence of God or gods plus should also embrace every last one of the ultra-liberal policies, such as no discrimination against ethnicity, women, or any minority... and on and on and on. You know, elitist stuff. Stuff like "I believe THIS, so everybody else should believe this way as well, and if they don't then they are cretins."

Oh well.


I will be leaving this evening for a week out in the desert where I will be hacienda-sitting and dog-sitting for Eva, but I will strive to continue blogging even though my customized computer will remain here at home in the city. There are two computers I can use at the desert location but they do not have the specialized software as does this one, such as my photo editing program... and others. Also, with hundreds of available satellite TV channels to choose from (instead of my usual dozen or so) I find it difficult to pull myself away from such a plethora of relatively uncensored entertainment.

And there is the billiard room, and I always seem to need more practice at nine-ball.

And Eva needs her play time, too.


Updates  and second thoughts (if I have any) will go here . . .



Of no value or importance.
Useless; futile.
