The weather was actually rather pleasant this afternoon when I got off work. A "cold front" passed through the area, and the humidity is lower, compared to the past few days, so, instead of feeling like a blast furnace, it felt nice. When I say that a "cold front" passed through the area, I mean that in a (very) relative sense. The temperature, right now, is eighty-six degrees Fahrenheit, and the humidity is fifty-nine percent, which makes it feel as if it is ninety degrees. Some "cold front!"
I cannot connect to one of my web hosts. That's a bad thing. Their server must be down for some reason. The host is, and my site, "Prickly Pig's Blogosphere," is hosted at
Update on the story of the two missing girls in Oregon: Two sets of remains have been found at the home of a suspect. One set has been identified as that of Miranda Gaddis, one of two girls who disappeared from the apartment complex early this year.

Typo3 is a free, full-featured content management system that rivals commercial programs costing thousands of dollars. I do not have any experience with installing it (yet), but I understand that the installation is not as simple as some.
If the latest deaths are determined to be due to the West Nile virus, then there will have been twenty, so far. One web site quoted someone as saying that the epidemic would be likely to continue for another two weeks. Stay away from them 'skeeters!

This morning, I woke up at about three-thirty and, for some reason, didn't go back to bed, so, this afternoon, I took a nap on the couch. I dreamed about my Father, who died on Wednesday, February 28, 2001. He would have been ninety years old on April 30, 2001. Even though he didn't make it to his ninetieth birthday, at least he did make it into the new millennium.

I dreamed that he and I were going to a hospital to pick up my sister, who was being discharged after having had some type of operation. In reality, she died sixteen years ago.

I woke up before my Dad and I got to the hospital, but I was so happy to see him again! He was such a great guy. I surely do miss him!

Hey, as a follow up to my last post, about forgetting my password to Nucleus: everything's O. K.! I got a new password, and I'm bloggin' away on my Nucleus site.

I did a dumb thing! I logged out of Nucleus on my home computer, and I can't log back in, because I can't remember my user name and my password! I thought I knew them, but I've tried all sorts of combinations and no luck. There is a possibility that I printed out a page with that information on it, but, because I can't remember whether I did the installation at home or at work, I don't know where that print out may be (if it exists at all). Poo! The saga continues.
This program, w.bloggar, is great! I've just learned how to use it to post to multiple blogger blogs!

Small-town police think it's funny to give a man with a learning disability a fake lie detector test; are sobered up by one million dollar lawsuit man slaps on them.

The two teenage girls that were abducted this morning in California have been found unharmed. The man who snatched them was shot to death by a sherrif's deputy.
