For the last week or so I have been feeling really bad, bad as in ill. Can’t keep food down, can’t sleep. I am sure this is going to be a lifestyle issue, I have not been taking very good care of myself lately as far as diet and exercise. I did get a good nights sleep last night and feel decent today.
Last week my laptop died and I was very pleased with what it was replaced with. It only struck me later that the only thing I had backed up was my itunes folder. Of course everything I need for work was backed up but I may have lost a bunch of photographs. It is really stupid on my part I am in the Tech biz, I back up my work related data but when it comes to my personal stuff I blow it off. Over the years I have lost quite a few blog posts due to the fact that I did not back them up. I guess I won’t be able to smirk the next time someone says I lost everything on my hard drive. I may be able to recover some of the data. I am going to pick up an external drive interface and see if I can read anything on the drive.
It’s hurricane season and there does not seem to be as much anxiety this year. Predicted number of storms is dropping already. Of course the reality is that means nothing. You know what they say it only takes one. I read an article online the other day about the problems that Galveston is having recovering from last years butt kicking. I can really feel for them, it made me realize that storms that destroy most of your community are not quickly recovered from. While we may get all the press, most of it bad, it made me feel as if we are not alone. This kind of thing can happen to anyone anywhere.
On the crime front lets give a big cheer. We’re number one, in murders that is. City officials argue that the FBI doesn’t have our population right and that skews the numbers. Even if you use the cities numbers our murder rate is way too high. City officials need to stop trying to put lipstick on a pig and instead try to come up with some inovative ways to make a significant dent in the numbers. I don’t have much hope that that will happen, after all this is the Nagin Administration. I would put up a pic of the day but I don’t have one, I do have a few shots in the camera to download, maybe this will motivate me to get out and take more photos.
