Another Marshall Alexander creation.
It is 57° and raining in Aiken right now and the little red square ■ tells me it is 44°. By clicking on the square, I get the weather page for Alexandria, Virginia, where it is cloudy now, later tonight & tomorrow it will be rainy and mild. You know, now that I have complained about it, I’m almost hoping that they never fix it. The little red square ■ creates a kind of armchair tourism, whisking you away magically to different destinations. I only wish tonight it would have taken me to Oahu where our surfer girl is from.
Started up, still up.

Tomorrow it is going to be 81° and on Monday even warmer at 83°.
Surprise, surprise, we ate breakfast at Dunkin Donuts and then did some geocaching. The real surprise was that we didn’t roll out of bed until 8 o’clock. And that made DD quite busy, but we did luck out by just missing one onslaught of customers and ended up right ahead of another. While we dined, we read in the Aiken Standard about a local nominee for the World’s Stupidest Criminal — Robbing A Bank Is Thirsty Work and the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal reviewed one of the 16 contenders for the Bogardus’s new car — Hyundai Elantra by comparing it to the new 2012 Ford Focus (which will now be added to the list replacing the previous generation’s coupe).
Started down, went up, went down, back up, back down, still down.

When I was growing up in Connecticut when you saw a robin in your yard that meant spring was on its way. Here in Aiken that doesn’t work so well, I don’t think the robins ever go away here. Today I saw three signs that Punxsutawney Phil was correct in his prediction that spring is just around the corner.
The first thing I noticed that portends spring, even though we are still nearly a month from the vernal equinox, was a box of Girl Scout cookies on someones desk. Number two was the Bradford Pear tree outside the front door of the Valve Store™ was starting to bloom and lastly, and most troublesome, was that there was a light coating of yellow pine pollen covering the exterior of the Emperor when I parked it in the garage this evening.
