Oriole!

I got a lot of work done on Monday and Tuesday. I saw a Baltimore Oriole in Bethany Lakes Park in Allen. I usually only see them in the Spring, and not often then. An old friend left a picture of a Pacific Northwest bird one of her friends is trying to ID, but I could not sort out which bird it was--but gave a guess anyway.

The less-hot early Texas Summer gave way to the 100-degree day weather that goes with late July. I found out the location of the local Makerspace, and figured out when the north Texas Linux Users Group meets. I had just decided that the Texas Linux Fest next month in San Marcos is too far to drive,so getting involved locally next month makes sense to me. I plan to revisit Cleburne State Park sometime soon, though, like many parks locally, it had a trail damaged by the rains.

I am almost over the spot of illness I caught in Scotland. If it is not all gone by Saturday,I'll go to the doc-in-a-box. It' s good to feel good again.

I downloaded two more sci-fi novels from Barnes & Noble. I've had a good 2015 run of enjoyable sci-fi. I caught up with most of my postal chess moves yesterday. I am not very happy with most of my positions, but the games are interesting.

My newish song "Naive" seems to get picked up for videos a lot. Someone posted a creative short film using it,so I left a social media post saying I enjoyed it. It's fun the way social media can facilitate instant communication.

Twitter searches for Baltimore Orioles feature way too much baseball.
