08:21 – We’re having a real warm spell in Sparta. It’s to be 68F (20C) today and tonight the low is only 50F (10C). The warm spell is to last through this coming Friday, when it’ll be back to highs in the 30’s and lows in the 20’s.

We were watching Endeavor last night and they had a parade celebrating something or other. One of the characters commented that Britain had never been invaded. Actually, Britain is invaded and conquered about every thousand years, like clockwork. A thousand years ago, the Normans did it, and a thousand years before that, the Romans. And that doesn’t even count the Anglo-Saxon invasion from about 500 to 700. Britain is just about due, and sure enough it’s being invaded right now by moslem hordes. There may not always be an England.

I’m rejiggering our network today, so I may not be responding to comments here for a while. The powerline networking stuff came in yesterday and I’m looking forward to getting it set up.
