Stuff

Today was supposed to be a big day of caching up at Cheesequake. I canceled going last evening. There are things to do here. I think caching two+ hours away is pushing the limits of what a fun activity should be. I believe this may be the beginning of the end of my geocaching. I have a perimeter set up for caching. Anything within that will be had. The extent of me traveling beyond that will be limited.

I already realized a benefit of not going . . . my wife cooked me pancakes! How wonderful.

Remember your kids don’t do what you say, they watch what you do.

I read that in a post on The Motley Fool. Interesting. I wonder if that applies to education too. The wildness and lack of vision would seem to indicate it does.

Some lady on Fox News, speaking about the health of AOL/Time Warner, said that the premise of the Matrix Reloaded scares her. According to this woman the premise is this: machines want to control of the world and they will take control of a brain to do so. The brain the machines choose is Keanu Reeves. That’s a good one!

Gert and I went for our annual strawberry eating meal. A church in a nearby city has a fundraiser each year by selling all-you-can-eat strawberry shortcake. We like this and brought our treat home. After a brief stop at a yardsale for a basketball thing for Gert’s students, we arrived home just as the Blue Angels roared overhead. For about an hour the sky was filled with the thunderous jets. Oh my! And the strawberries were delicious.

Also blogged on this date . . .

  1. It’s interesting reading thoughts from three years ago. I did not attend that event in Cheesequake, but I later cached the area pretty heavily. It is near Melvin’s Multiple Madness, one of the finest caches I ever sought.

    While not the reason for bailing, I have found that events are not really things I enjoy much. I like caching. The sitting around talking to people I do not know is not comfortable for me. It’s the same reason why I was never a barfly. And given the Travel Bugs and coin exchanges that seem to dominate events these days, there is even less to draw me to them.

  2. Hmmm . . . this post is similar to one I could write tonight. I am taking off from work tomorrow. For months I have looked forward to this day: there was a series of caches I wanted to hit in central Jersey that I just have not been able to get to of late.

    But I have been feeling guilty all day about it. I was out all day yesterday and tomorrow would be another $75 worth of gasoline to find boxes in the woods more than two hours away. I have decided to remain much closer to home.

    It’s funny, as I researched one of the caches I was going to hunt, it sounded like a wonderful history lesson. As I checked the cache against my database, it turns out that I found a cache less than 200 feet away from where this one now is. Methinks I have found too many of these things. 🙂
