I'm just that guy whose full name is Curtis Alan Jackson. I like Star Wars over Star Trek. Love my sci-fi hard and always interested in time travel related stories (not as much alternative history). Enjoy reading about quantum physics and cosmology even if I can't understand the math. :) #FARP2019
When the skies start booming, I open up https://www.lightningmaps.org to watch the (nearly) real time strike monitoring. They also show the speed of the thunder.
Oooh, cool!· Kirsten
We tend to have a bit of lightning here in FL. :)· Hey, it's CAJ!
The site can also make a little "tick" noise for each strike on your current view. It can get to sounding like a Geiger counter sometimes.· Hey, it's CAJ! 1
I miss the sound of thunder. We don't get it much here in SoCal.· orgmonkey
Surprisingly, the very first real test of my #FARP2019 dedication. Run scheduled for this morning but actively raining. Definitely will do the strength training but...
Hmm, heavy rain with a couple peals of thunder say reschedule to me. Maybe later today. Should be cooler than normal with this rain.· Hey, it's CAJ!
The clouds parted to mostly blue sky and the thunder left with the rain. And so, I ran. While the humidity was ridiculous, the sun itself was still trapped behind clouds. Success!· Hey, it's CAJ! 3
Good job!· Meg Vmeg
#FARP2019 update. It's a couple days early for my August update but I'm so very pleased that I'm now have to say a completely new set of numbers on the first part of my weight. Documented 31 pound loss (anecdotal 35.6 pounds). It's bewildering to think I've nearly lost as much as the cat litter we get in 40 pound bags. They're not light!
Every so often, I wonder how terrifying it was for the people that got swapped out in Quantum Leap. While Dr. Beckett was temporarily confused, he had experience with being in the situation. Those other people? Traumatized for life.
Wasn't there an episode with one?· bentley
The people who were swapped, however, had an entire lab of people to provide support. And at least one character was swapped twice.· Soup
An odd complaint perhaps but there's one thing that really bugs me when I have to come to HQ for work: shoes. Working from home in FL I'm used to not wearing them even during work hours. Fortunately, it's not all that often. (I don't mind the travel and enjoy seeing everyone in person but...the SHOE WEARING!)
Hey brain? I know the first day I don't go to work is usually Saturday which is also when I do the yard work...BUT...today is THURSDAY and and I don't have to! You can stop worrying about it. Really!
Always read ahead for meals you'll be starting in the crock pot in the morning. I didn't and found out that the recipe says it'll take TEN hours. So, while we won't be eating way too late, it was a close thing since I was expecting to start on it later this morning. (Most things we cook are about six hours so I expected plenty of time. HA!)

TIL that The Beastie Boys song "Slow and Low" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFESmuzaAek ) is actually a cover of Run-DMC's original version "Slow and Low" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jjRfTSjRss ). Seems like they worked together some on it? Still digging around for more details.
Friday cats already sleeping the day away.
#FARP2109 June Update - Well, I finished the Couch to 5K program and now can run for a number of minutes continuously. I've now switched to running specific distances to work on the speed. My brain remembers when I was faster. The body reminds me that was a number of years ago. After a slight weight loss plateau last month, June has started with a proper drop of digits on the scale. Anecdotal weight loss: 30 pounds. Measured loss: 25 lbs.
Now down a shirt size and a few numbers on the waist. I can't wait to see what the people in the home office will be saying when I visit end of July.· Hey, it's CAJ! 2
And just a quick whine: my waist has dropped much quicker than my hips. Either bottoms are too tight on the hips or everything (not elastic) drops to the hips. Sigh. Progress of an odd sort, I guess. Glad I work from home. :)· Hey, it's CAJ! 1
And so it begins. Twenty is still way too many but at least it's a start. --- DNC names 20 candidates who will appear on stage for first Democratic debate "The Democratic National Committee set two ways for the candidates to qualify — fundraising and polling." https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/dnc-names-20-candidates-who-will-appear-stage-first-democratic-n1017316
Is there a way for my private sub-feed to be hidden when I'm viewing the normal feed? I'd like to keep it private until I actively click on the link on the right.
Okay, so there's a fair bit of cuteness going on in this situation. I'm not totally unhappy to have to type on my lap instead of my desk. :)
