GOING TO HOUSTON  

A PLANE IS ON ITS WAY TO HOUSTON WHEN A BLONDE IN ECONOMY CLASS GETS UP, MOVES TO THE FIRST CLASS SECTION AND SITS DOWN.   

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT WATCHES HER DO THIS AND ASKS 

TO SEE HER TICKET. SHE THEN TELLS THE BLONDE THAT SHE PAID FOR ECONOMY CLASS AND THAT SHE WILL HAVE TO GO BACK THERE AND SIT. THE BLONDE REPLIES, "I'M BLOND, I'M BEAUTIFUL, I'M GOING TO HOUSTON AND I'M STAYING RIGHT HERE."  

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT GOES INTO THE COCKPIT AND TELLS THE PILOT AND THE COPILOT.   

THE COPILOT GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND TRIES TO EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE SHE ONLY PAID FOR ECONOMY SHE WILL HAVE TO RETURN TO HER SEAT.  

THE BLONDE REPLIES, "I'M BLONDE, I'M BEAUTIFUL, I'M GOING TO HOUSTON AND I'M STAYING RIGHT HERE."   

THE COPILOT TELLS THE PILOT THAT HE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE THE POLICE WAITING WHEN THEY LAND TO ARREST THIS BLONDE WOMAN WHO WON'T LISTEN TO REASON.  

THE PILOT SAYS, "YOU SAY SHE IS A BLONDE? I'LL HANDLE THIS. I'M MARRIED TO A BLONDE. I SPEAK BLONDE."  

HE GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND WHISPERS IN HER EAR, AND SHE SAYS, "OH, I'M SORRY." AND SHE GETS UP AND GOES BACK TO HER SEAT IN ECONOMY.  

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND COPILOT ARE AMAZED AND ASK THE PILOT WHAT HE SAID TO MAKE HER MOVE WITHOUT ANY FUSS.   

I TOLD HER FIRST CLASS ISN'T GOING TO HOUSTON.

Sunday Jan 9 2005 I had a really good weekend with a lot of promise.  Thatís all Iím going to say as I donít want to jinxs it   .

Wen Jan 6 2005 I should have had this DVR & Digital video back in march when I was sick. Also way is it that every time I exercises my ass off I end up craving wing & beer.  My dearest hope is that all the schools close tomorrow due to the weather.

Tue Jan 4 2005  Spent most of the day sick but Iím now feeling better. I made a Dr. appointment for Friday over the spells Iíve been having at night. There Very scary!  I wake up in a bolt unable to inhale or exhale and as I struggle thou the house in the dark I can feel my self begging to pass out from lack of air about that time I start to breath again.  It feels like dieing! Thank goodness that it has only happened 3 times in the last 3 years!  Well not only have I got myself a XM radio but I also upgraded to digital video and a DVR from time warned.  Thanks for the push Mickey, I think Iím going to be very happy.  While home sick today Iíve completed a few of the projects Iíve been putting of. I'm going to start a new log tomorrow

Mon Jan 3 2005 I had a idea to day to take a long walk or more like a night time hike, So I grabbed my Harry Potter CDís & some coffee and headed out; Bad idea! When I got back I was cold, wet and sick. Tomorrow may be the first sick day Iíve taken since the start of school.  I just finished another program that was on my to-do list.  Itís a network stressor. Itís put a load on the network and servers to see how well they handle it. With it running on 3 machines here it brought my network to its knees. Now that my site has been indexed by several search engines Iím getting a lot of random links in.  I may have to consider getting rid of the frames Iím off to bet to get some rest, hopefully a good night sleep will help.

Sun Jan 2 2005 The song below was just on my new XM radio & it got me thinking about Betsy so I thought Iíd share it.  My OLE program has been completed and all extracted data has been posted.  I just need one more day's work to finish this project.  Oh!  GoggleBot made an appearance this weekend

Beatles's

In My Life Lyrics

 

There are places Iíll remember

All my life though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life Iíve loved them all

 

But of all these friends and lovers

There is no one compares with you

And these memories lose their meaning

When I think of love as something new

Though I know Iíll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know Iíll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

 

Though I know Iíll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know Iíll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Wed Dec 29 2004 Wow; My site is crawling with clawers, spiders and bots!  Its looks like my evil plans are bearing fruit at last! I did have to hack a few web pages to insert a link to my page & load a few pages I created oversees to attract the little buggers but hey Iím a geek arenít I?  Using a little deception to get search engines to index my site is part of the game.  My own web crawler reported this to me last night! Now it looks like I need to finish what I startedÖ, Well I did not start it but I will finish it.  Now for something that no one cares about.  Iíve found a way to do ďCĒ like link lists in PowerBasic.  This will let me write much more memory efficient code at an increase in complexity.  Also Iíve been wanting to buy a digital picture frame for my desk that would run a slide show of pictures from my digital camera. But they run about $300-$600, thatís a lot for a toy. So Iím looking into building one for my self out of a used laptop or an independent LCD panel that I would drive via a serial port.  This could be a fun project as I have always wanted to get into electronics.  Itís all a pipe dream until I really do it.Tue Dec 28 2004 Well the holiday is over & I survived; My mood has been a lot better lately.  Iím still programming & I think that has helped; itís nice to be challenged again.  My last project not only re-writes the logs from my web site but also copies them around & emails me a copy.  Ala in all I have about 30 hours into writing it spread over 4 weeks.  Iím now writing a program to use OLE to control other programs like word & outlook.  I need to extract some data to put up on my secret website. Iíll put a note when Iím done for those that know how to find it.  Well Iím off to do some reading; I promised my shrink that Iíd finish a book for her before my next appointment.

Wed Dec 22 2004  Still been tweaking my web utilities and in the middle of it I had a evil thought!  I'm going to look into that idea tomorrow.  Well I'm still deep in thought with decisions almost apron me.  I've been re-reading a lot of emails for the past 3 years.  Yes I have them all; I'm a geek am I not? Well time sleep.  Below are some before and after logs for Dec 14 2004

Before [nc041214.log]            After [20041214 WebLog Tue Dec 14 2004.txt]

Monday Dec 20 2004  Iíve spent the last week or so trying to come to some decision on a choice I want to make.  I think Iím making some head way in fining out what ďI wantĒ,  Iím not used to such indecision on my part.  So much this past 6 months have thrown me for a loop that I donít trust my decision making ability, for that Iím sorry.  But starting yesterday things seem clearer; but I donít know why.  I need to be ok in not knowing why, it should be enough to feel better about a lot of things.  Oh well; the brochure on this life thing did say ďPain is part of life but misery is at your optionĒ.   Read the fine print Frank.  This Holiday had been really hard for me and itís clouded everything else! Iíve re-read all of my ďPersonal Daily journals entreesĒ   and am amazed on what Iíve been thou in the past 3 years, yes itís been almost 3 years since I lost Betsy.  Iím still working on me.

Iíve been programming a lot and the act of creation has helped raise my disposition.  Iíve been tweaking my web loger and have written some support utilities. I keep coming up with things that I want to add.  I want it to run after midnight & convert the log & email me a copy. Maybe Iíll create a download page of some of my utilities.

Monday Dec 13 2004 Itís done! My latest creation lives!  Iím done with my web log processor, with the exception of a little polish.  Iíve turned it lose on half of my logs aprox 400. Itís been running for about 9 hours so far.  Some of the routines that I wrote today include a base 32 converter, Julian day (counts the days from Nov. 25, 4714 BC to now), a command phraser. It was fun to create again.  You can check out the source code here if you want.  I need to rewrite it to handle a different log format as I have about 700 in an older format! It should be easy.  After this is done Iím moving back to my prime project!  By the way the j-date functions  came from a project i did at the bank some years ago.  I'll put some logs up tomorrow.

Sunday Dec 12 2004 Iíve been fighting the dull drums all day for some reason.  I know one thing is that I hate it getting dark so early!  I canít wait for days to start getting longer. Got most of my Christmas cards out & shopping done. I want to get some more Christmas Decorations something for me, every thing I have has so many memories in it that I feel I need to get something new. Iíve got a new wireless access point, a G series running at 54mb/s, I hope it has better range them my last one.  My life has been a bit stressfull as of late

 

Friday Dec 10 2004 this story & link was sent to me by a friend and I just had to share it

Now playing: A love story
Friday, December 10, 2004
By Sue Weibezahl
Staff writer


    Eastwood's Palace Theater is closed for renovations, but that didn't stop the neighborhood movie house from being the scene of some drama Tuesday night.
    Mike Adams, who lives on Arnett Avenue, approached theater employees Monday and asked if he could use the marquee to propose to his girlfriend, Samantha Renna, who lives on Forest Hill Drive.
    David Schmitt, who's coordinating the renovations at the 80-year-old building at 2384 James St., was happy to comply, he said. He used huge letters to spell out "Samantha, Will you marry me? Love, Mike."

    "I was out in the pouring rain, doing it myself, just to make sure it got done and I wanted it to look really good," Schmitt said.
    He also happened to be there at 6:15 the following evening when Adams and his girlfriend pulled up around the corner in their car.
    Adams said he'd checked it out before picking up Renna to take her out to dinner and was thrilled to see the sign spelling out his intentions.
    "It was awesome," he said. "So great."
    He had approached his future in-laws, Thomas and Deborah Renna, to ask their permission to marry Samantha, and when they gave the union their blessing, he tried to think of a way to pop the question in a memorable way.
    "Everyone wants something really special, so I wanted to make it something she'd always remember," Adams said. "I knew the Palace was closed, so this wouldn't interfere with them putting up signs for movies. I knew it wouldn't work unless I really tried. I called and called and when I finally got someone and told them what I wanted, they said 'yes' right away. It was almost like it was meant to be."
    It rained most of Tuesday, but the skies cleared shortly before Adams, who lives two blocks from the theater, picked up Renna. He drove up and got out, pretending to be looking in the windows of a cafe under construction at the site, he said.
    "She didn't have a clue in the world," Adams said.
    The recently installed neon marquee had a notice about a neighborhood meeting on the side his girlfriend could see, said Schmitt.
    "He tells her, 'I wonder what it looks like on the other side?' and she gets out of the car to go see," Schmitt said. "He knelt down on one knee and proposed to her. Even as a divorced man myself, I can tell you, it was beautiful."
    Renna's family stationed itself across the street to take pictures of the couple under the marquee as Mike gave Samantha roses and presented her with a diamond ring.
    It all happened on the couple's four-and-a-half-year anniversary, but Adams said he knew from the start it was meant to be. They are planning to marry in the summer of 2006.
    The couple met while Renna was still in high school at Henninger. Adams, now 25, already had graduated from Solvay High School. Renna, now 22, went to Cazenovia College and is now a graphic artist. Adams attended ITT technical school and works as a computer networker.
    "It was so amazing," Renna said. "I'll never forget it."
    Schmitt said so many people have seen the proposal over the last two days, it's only fair to let them know how it all turned out.
    "Thursday, we're putting a new one up," Schmitt said. "SHE SAID YES!"

 Thursday Dec 2004 I stared work on my program to process my web logs again. for those who care the source core for V1beta is below along with some before and after examples.

Tuesday Nov 30 2004 Below are some pics of my progress on setting up for Christmas as well as my favorite Christmas song! Iíve also started to write my xmas letter for this year.  Today I made the worst soup ever, left over turkey & spit pea. Iím glad that this time comes once a year

My favorite Christmas song, click to play Emerson Lake & Palmer - I Believe In Father Christmas

Monday Nov 29 2004  Wow! What is this? An update a week.  Well let see.  I have my tree sort of up & have started to go though all my Christmas stuff. There are a lot of memories in those totes! Itís a bit harder then I had thought!  Betsy & I had collected 3 trees, 4 30 gallon totes and 6 55 gallon totes!  I donít think I can get rid of any of it and maybe I no longer want to.   This weekís projects are to finish the tree and xmas cards by next Sunday.  I got on my scale for the first time in two months and to my surprise Iíve only gained 2 pounds!  I been good and have been exercising daily again.

Monday Nov 22 2004  It was an uneventful weekend other then getting a ticket in Wayland, Oh well he could have sited me more then he did so I guest Iím lucky.  I went to Rochester to find a desk and get a high end video card; I came home with out either!  Check the links below for some of my latest junk!

http://frostar.2y.net/!/gwen2.avi

Dam my cat just pissed me off.  He has been waking me up in the night by crying out side my room. Well I thought Iíd do the same & throw a empty roll of paper towels at him while he was sleeping.  He glared at me for over half an hour. Then got up, walked over to me and bit my hand.  I guest turnabout is NOT fair play.

 

Friday morning Nov 19 2004 Well for the first time in months I got up when my alarm sounded and exercised! Normally I'm not even up yet but today I have done two loads of laundry, breakfast, some reading, exercised and watched a Star Trek Voyager  I doubt that this a trend, but I can hope.  I've had a lot of fun with Linux last night!  It's like Dos & windows a Mac all combined with a bid shot of steroids! I have a long way to go to match my current expertise with other platforms. 

Thursday Nov 18 2004.  I got a little phuq'n pissed last night and Iíd like for say for the record that my Computers are not ďmy unwanted junkĒ it was something like that!  I take great pride in my machines, they are my children and I that good care of them both in there external appearance and then inner workings!  With the PCís I donít want; I harvest all the useful parts from and throw the rest away! Life has not been dull!  You know that the days is special when you get to talk to three different lawyers before 10am and get ask to drop what your doing & go do something unpleasant! I wish I could talk about it but that is as vague as I can make it.  Iíve installed Linux to three of my machines and am trying to get them to work as one.  I see more and more of the world switching over to Linux as time goes on. So Iím trying to beef up my UNIX skills!  I got some really good news in the past hew days; My job looks safe for the merger thatís going on!  Good now I can move ahead with my remodeling plans!

Monday Nov 15 2004  I know that Iíve been busy but for the life of me I cant remember what Iíve been up to!  Let see.  My main computer died so I build a new one itís a 2.8gh 1g memory 80 gb disk that took three days.  I fixed my brothers machine AGAIN.  Iíve been playing a lot of doom 3 and I have the nightmares to prove it.  Iím actually taking a break from it for a while.  I guess Iíve been trying to keep busy for a change.  I have started the 4 book in the Harry Potter series ďGoblet of fireĒ, but I have it on cd and am listening to it before bed.  I also have a bad feeling that I may have hurt some one recently with out meaning to, Iím going to send a letter along with a xmas card to try to explain things.  Oh Christmas, Iím really looking forward to it this year.  Iím going to go though all the xmas stuff that Betsy left me, 6 55 gallon tots in the basement and 3 trees!  

My friends Marty and Mickey are both trying to write a novels this months or at least 50,000 words! Ouch.  While I have not read them all yet I am taken aback as to how good they both are.  Thatís a complement to you both,  I could not do what you have already done.  Iím adding the links below.

Marty

Mickey  

Iím going to read for the remainder of the evening butting off once again the many things on my to do list

 

  &&  Sunday Nov 11 2004 I was going to spend my day programming & working on my computers but when I got back for running a errand  for my grandmother I saw how great the weather was,  So I decided to take a 7 mile hike by my self.  I had a great time & took a lot of pictures (see below) and I have the blisters to prove it.  Iím thinking about joining the Finger lake association and trying to hike all 560 miles of the trail system.  Next time Iím taking a picnic lunch as the vistas were incredible and the photos donít do them justice.  Any hikes what to join me on my treks?  Or how about some bike rides?

 

I most likely will be making a switch to FrontPage 2003 as my html editor some time this week.  I expect to have a few issues with the conversion.  Mostly with the counters.  The advantages outweigh the faults.  Trust me you notice the switch!

 

11-7-04 7 mile hike

 

out of my Thursday Nov 4 2004  Iíve submitted my & Betsyís site to every search engine and to open directory project.  As a result my site has been crawling with spiders all week.  They even crawled my hidden web site. It wonít be long until you can search for it, if you know what to search for that is. Iíve add the pictures from my Sunday ride to my photo section. A link for them is below.  Iíve also been doing some catch up on my reading and scanning.  The frostar picture below is from a t-shirt Iím going to use it to make a new logo.  Iíve also picked up Harry potter and the goblet of fire on CD.  17 of them and at 82 minutes each its 23.3 hours of entertainment.  Iím going to try to sleep but I lost track of time and have been drinking tea all night maybe. Ií read for a while and have a beer or two.  Good night to all.

 

10-29-04 Bike ride W/Nancy

 

 

  &&Monday Nov 1 2004   Well that was one hell of a week end and mostly not on a good note.  Saturday the weather was great & I decided to go bike riding.  I stood in my back yard holding my helmet & thinking about not wearing it but I did reluctantly wear it.  The Simmons & Rockwell Ford dealership is on my normal route & I often ride though it to look at any jeeps they have gotten in trade.  While ridding around the front of the building one of their sales people was hiding behind a minivan and came pouncing out to scary me.  Well he did and then I got mad.  I though why the hell am I considering giving them my business. I yelled ďI hope it as funnyĒ into the sales floor on my way past, by this time I was fuming mad.  I was picking up speed to get the hell out of there when I slipped on the oily/wet parking lot and came crashing down on my head.  It smashed my helmet, cracking it in 5 places. I also bent my left petal, broke my glasses, twisted my left are and shoulder as well as scrapping them up , thank god I decided to take the helmet as Iím sure that Iíd be dead now.  I called the general manager Jeff when I got home and cleaned up and he assured me that it well be dealt with.  He is also going to pay for new classes, repairs to my bike and a new helmet.  I still have no ideal what the jerk was trying to do; did he think that if he scared me I by a car?  

Sunday I went to Honeoye Falls to do some bike riding with Nancy . We road in the worst wind I have ever ridden in on the Leigh valley trails system.  We started out ridding against the wind for 12.5 miles! Ouch! Then the wind pushed us back but not before it started to rain and the temperature dropped.   I ran out of steam on the way back! The totally ride was 25 miles with the last 4 or so in  hellish rain, cold, fatigue.  I had a lot of fun.  In my hurry to get back by trick or treat time I left my other good helmet at her apartment.  I have to say that I really miss having my friend near by.  

I had given my old laptop to my friend Tim & Sharon so that they could dump their digital camera.  They were taking a once in a lifetime trip across this great country and had no way of empting there camera while on the rode.  They got back this past weekend and I burned all of there pictures and videos to a VCD format so they could watch them on there DVD player.  In return Tim fixed my bathroom sink.  Iíve been looking for the keyboard port on it as I thought that a BIOS upgrade might fix it but I turns out that my sink is an old model without a user port

Thursday Oct. 28 2004   Todayís update is going to be a bitch session of sorts.  I have some pet peeves that have gotten the best of me this week.  Iíve been on the irritable side of my personally as Iím trying to make some core changes to me.  Itís not going well or easy.  

Anyway peeve #1;  We as guys have urinals in our bathrooms, Use them!  Oh I can under stand if there is a line and you just have to pee all over a toilet set but clean it up you baboon!  God! Nothing pisses me off more (bad pun) then being the only guy peeing in a long line of empty urinals when someone comes in and goes to a toilet to take a leak!  WHAT ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT? THAT THE WORLD WILL SEE THAT YOUR HUNG LIKE A SQUIRREL!

Peeve #2; According to the drivers test manual I got in 1985 from the DMV. And yes I still have it!  Page 17 paragraph 4 says when making a turn onto a multi lane road you must turn into the lane closes to you!  If you try to cross lane while doing a turn it holds up both sides trying to turn and it dangerous!!!  Iíve starter to muscle my way into my lane cutting off the people make illegal turns.  The DMV knows when I took my testes and what book I used I would hope that if the laws have been changed they would send me a new copy!  

Peeve #3;  Iíve been using computer before they were even 1mz fast.  Iím of the mind set that we are the slow links in the chain.  At this point I should not have to wait for 10 sec for a program to come up.  My old apple 2 could boot from disk & make I into appleworks in 8 sec!   Mr. gates should be paying us for our time spent waiting at the keyboard.  

Peeve #4;  I See Dumb People;  If ignorance is bliss, then why arenít more people happy? The two most common elements are hydrogen and stupidity.  I seem to have a low tolerance this week for idiots! If you going to open your month please take the time to make sense.  Think people!   Evolution gave us big brains to help us survive.  In the olden days the dumb ones could not escape the predators and were eaten first;  not being able to mate (because there were dead) kept stupidity in check.  Our society has tipped the natural balance of thing! Dumbness abounds.

 

Ok I feel better now!  And while I know that the voices in my head are not real;  I have to admit they have some pretty good ideas!

 

Monday Oct 25 2004 Saturday I went to Gem/Rock show I Rochester & saw more them my wallet could afford.   But I did manage to pick up a Black Star Sapphire. It weighs in at 4.92 carts and at $65.00/cart it came to $320.45 before tax.  I would have loved to have gotten the 47.83 cart one at $3108.95 oh well there always next year!  Iím going to have it set in a ring/pendent using platinum.  Thatís going to be pretty penny as well as of today platinum is selling at $1,000/oz and Iím going to need 2.5 ozís of it!  Needless to say Iím going to wait to have it designed. The most expansive gem I ran across at the show was a 16.25 c pink star sapphire at $987.00/caret for a total $16038.75 for one stone!.   I also starter to replace all my ugly plastic plant pots with nice glazed ones.  My pineapple plant is doing great so are my Christmas cactuses.  It seems that what ever was sucking the life out of my life/home is now gone! Tough lessen learned.  As I was winterizing my yard I found 5 new and delicious  zucchini! The bad news is the moment I step out side to work I realized that I had left my keys in my other jacket! And seeing how this was the fourth time that I have done this this week and all 3 sets of my hidden keys were on my night stand!  So I throw a cinder block though a window in my back room! What fun!  Next I thought that I should clean my bathroom & under the sink. While working under it I slipped & grabbed the drain pipe wrenching it out of the wall!  I went shopping that day as well and while talking to a coworker I realized that I was supposed to have dinner with my grandmother, mother, sister in-law and my 4 nieces 15 minutes ago.  Iím glad they waited foe me.  It was at this point I decide not to touch anything else for the reminder of the day as I consider myself dangerous!   The gravity shields are installed but are applying uneven pressure across various subspace domains; this would be great if I was building a weapon but not to pump matter though a wormhole!  Data is transmitting fine though. 

Sat Oct 23 2004 ???  I'm off to the gem show


Wednesday Oct 20 2004 Time for a new log as it must take a while on dialup.  Iím going to try to use more smiles in my blog here.  Below are just a few of the ones Iíve collected so far, I have over 600 of them and to put them all here would really over load those dialup connections.
