Random Tidbits

1.  Ken heard noises under the bathroom sink a few days ago, so I cleared it out and he put mouse traps in.  We've caught 10 mice in the last two or three days.  I think the neighborhood cats are all being kept inside more often with the cold, rainy weather, so that may be a part of it.

2. Speaking of cold, rainy weather.  I'm doing a lesson on astronomy this week for the kids.  I was thinking of taking them out to see some constellations.  It gets dark so early that it seems like the perfect time of year for it; I can show them stars and still have them in bed on time.  The problem with that is that this is December in Oregon.  The least amount of cloud cover predicted for the evenings this week is 87%.  So much for stargazing.

3. I started a Wordpress blog to see if it was easier to post photos up there.  It is rather easier to post photos, but there are still pointlessly unnecessary steps, and I still have to post video clips up on Youtube first, unless I want to pay $50 or $60 per year. Which I emphatically don't.  So I don't know if I will make the move there or not.
