Been Cold....


Coffee made earlier is only warm from the coffee-maker's warmer Kitchen is very cold .... just this one room has any heat at all little heater barely takes the chill off of this room.... layers of clothing and heater at my side... about to eat a biscuit (egg and cheese) not felt much like eating anything for last few days.... Very cold in other rooms... hung blankets and sheet-plastic to further keep out the cold not real effective ... Switching out this heater for the other small unit from the side-room

Very Cold Today

               
will try to find that other heater in the side-room later... only in mid-20's at present ... not much warmer in here... all up against this little heater... heavily bundled in  extra layers of clothing...
(and the date of Nov. 13th is a time in which "Dark forces" is more powerful and the barriers between us and them is much weaker... a good day to postpone unnecessary activities till the next day)
 
still feel nausea in stomach... was why went to lay down for the night so early. Still took about three hours to doze off for a short bit.. was very cold (wearing a heavy coat for now) ... weather says it is only 25 outside (after 9:00am)... cannot hook-up another heater at same time as another is running (will throw breaker ) ... switching to drinking water (poor "quality" town water) coffee only further nauseates my stomach.... hope will feel better later today.... and doctor visit for tomorrow...

More Rain...


Awoke around sun-up ... already raining... more rain and much colder air comes behind this storm front... making sure that the few roof leaks are caught in containers ...
                          
                           even found a link to view this old "giant monster" film...


   rather poorly done effects and could have been better made, but was enjoyable to watch again...

A Day to Thank Those Who have Served...


A day for honoring those brave men and women who have fought to protect this nation and its people... as well as the military of Allies. To honor those who have risked (and many time even lost) their lives to keep the world safe from opposing "Powers" and powerful "despots"....
                                                   Remember to keep them in your prayers...

Monday Again....


Wishing All a pleasant day.... breezy but slightly warmer today (read that the weekend's sudden "cold" was from an "arctic blast" that pushed the rains rather quickly over here and the cold tried to settle in)... may go for a short walk in a bit ... do not walk very much anymore... used to always go walking... breathing issues have come to hinder our ability to walk very much....

                                Just made a fresh pot (about half an hour ago)
                            
still been watching "ghost" clips at You Tube ("King Frostmare" has some enjoyable ones posted)

            Mostly Asian clips last night and today (clips listed under "hantu")

Just having a bit of Coffee...

         
A friend dropped by to visit .. Temps have been chilly for last couple of nights (around freezing or a bit lower at nights) after they left house is very quiet .... Watched You Tube most of this weekend....
Many of these have been in Asian and other languages.... looking up "hantu" and "djinn" clips
 
not much of a Halloween (rained out here) & All stores had already replaced with Christmas stuff...
                
Still have to get "foot-pegs" and a neck (Hot Toys brand) as well as attach "peg-addaptors" inside of the two heads that we do have... So, still a bit of work to be done to complete this figure
 The figure we had ordered was canceled two days before arrival date... So, was lucky enough to find a Hot Toys "Pennwise" (It Chapter 2) for just a bit more, it should arrive a bit before Christmas.
                     They do a very "movie accurate" costume for their figures

Spore Adventure...

The Tripods in my Spore game Adventures ....
Working on it later 
just sharing a few images of the Adventure

Hello...

                 Cold temps came with the rain.... just above freezing .... our first really cold weather
  
   Watched you tube (mostly "odd" archeological finds and long "scary" stories narrated)
And was trying to update my Spore "Universe" and building a "wall" of planetary systems between my main Home-world area and the attacking Grox (forgot to turn off auto-cannons and destroyed their ship... so, they declared War and keep attacking the worlds of the Empire ...

So, giving them "pawn" worlds nearer to the Grox so that they will be attacked before home-world areas... Don't know how well this will work at "saving" my Empire... (normally end up just "deleting" the Empire to save their worlds for my game.... ) Worked a bit on the Adventure we worked on a while back (cool planet... no "story-line") .... trying Tripod invasion ("War of the Worlds") looks good thus far ... all we had was the destroyed village and all inhabitants dead (even livestock) ... now added armed survivors... (as well as some"panicking" folks running about) as three giant Tripods try to kill them.
                                             Well back to my insectoid Empire....
And at Sims, we have all but a few "main" characters to gain "immortality", to survive my game.

Comic Books of My Childhood...

                                   Was a favorite comic book title from my childhood.....
                         
                                       Would like to get a copy of this issue
     issue # 1 was a great comic..... "the Lurker in the Pit" and Tom Sutton's "the Well"...
                   
            We found a (better condition) copy  about 20 years ago... still have my old copy....






Always enjoyed the wonderful illustrations by Sutton

                                         Like this page from "a Budding Evil"...
