My water heater is OK!

Turns out that newer water heaters must sit in a catch pan of some sort, just in case they leak, so the water can drain without flooding everything. But when the new one was installed (over a year ago), they didn't do that, but they came back when the city failed the inspection, and installed the pan. But it seems it was never inspected again (did they forget to call the city?), until today! And yes, it now passes, geez, I feel so much better now :-)

What else?

Gas has dropped a bit, down to 2.38. I wonder where it will level out. Maybe back to $2? Fat chance...but who knows.

Downloaded the latest Google Earth, perhaps the greatest time waster of ALL TIME. These Google guys are really smart, although they never seem to get anything out of 'beta' :-). Of course, their beta is better than most folks production code.

Another day

It was quite cool this morning, the first real 'cold' front of the year came through yesterday morning. About time I'd say. Supposed to be in the 70s all week.

Back to work today, nothing really out of the ordinary. The usual emails and and such to respond to.

Saw Hurrincane Wilma was pounding Florida this morning, that makes what, 6-8 storms in two years, rather unlucky for the folks in Florida. But hitting more down in the Everglades, I wonder if anyone will make parallels with the 'Invasion' TV show.

Today's bike ride

Today's bike ride started at 7:30, it was a little cold, had to wear some gloves. I did see on TV that it's Lance's Ride for the Roses race today, a very worthy endeavor. I did my usual course, which is about 6 miles or so, down thru the city parks. Alot of the ride is in the shade that early, so it's a bit colder (wind chill, you see). It's a great way to start a day, fresh air, beautiful blue sky.
