Birdbrains and Boza eat and eat & some coffee perceptions…

—  The birdbrains are gathering at sunup and waiting for me to put food out. They sit in the cherry trees near the outhouse and watch for me. They no longer fly away and gather in greater and greater numbers as the morning goes on. I am trying to feed them at sunup and make it a habit to help them get the food before bigger birds come. I chase the biggest birds such as crows and mocking birds away. Most of the time the little birdbrains are in such numbers, that they keep the big birds away…

Boza has taken to eating all the time. He is running as we walk and between Boza and the Birdbrains; I keep busy feeding them…

It is good to see Boza eating, in Moscow we had issues with him not eating, but in the Tiny Russian Village, Boza eats like a horse. But!!!! Last night we had to get up twice and go for a walk. Boza had doggy things to do and they got urgent. That is okay, I like it when he eats. He will settle down and it shows me that he is happy and the Tiny Russian Village is his safe home in his eyes…

He lays here next to me on his bed on the couch and is sound asleep as I write this. Glad he can sleep! He kept me running around all night in the -15 degrees cold windy weather. It is sunup and -13 right now. The weather station is working good and I finally got the hard drive in shape. I had to isolate the bad sectors and bypass them. There is about 2 Gigs of dead space on the drive and if all goes good, I will make it until Svetochka comes back with the old laptop. Going to have to get a new hard drive for my computer,but that will wait a while; money is all spent and the budget can not be stretched to meet that demand. Oh well! We make do with what we got…

Was going to go to the Big Village today, but I do not feel like it. I need to pick up more doggy food, but we have enough. I just like to have more than enough. Boza likes to eat. I think I will go tomorrow, if sleep is good and all else is good. I will start the car today and warm it up, to make sure all is good. It will be sunny for the next few days and cold, cold and more cold…

—  Kinda sore this morning. Fell yesterday and landed on my right side. This hill is dangerous when covered with snow and I have to learn again to walk carefully. But sore I am this morning…

Ouch!

—  The sun is up and so beautiful. Gonna walk Boza again soon. We will try to get pictures this morning. I have to build a wall to enclose the outhouse better and find myself a roofing panel to make a entrance cover. Got to keep the snow out of the outhouse. I also will split wood today and get ready for a long winter. I have enough wood, but really, you never have enough wood! 😉

lick-and-puppy— Going to make a Windows 7 Live CD, that means I have to find some burnable cd’s at the Big Village. I have to be able to save my data easily, Puppy Linux does the job, but I need back up, in case…. I have installed Puppy Linux inside of Windows 7 and it works perfectly. Really a good thing to do, for it creates a new boot menu that allows you to get into Puppy if need be. The program is called LICK (Right here)…. Works really good and saved this computer so far. Something to think about if you have an issue. Just get it ahead of time and install just in case. Make sure that you download a copy of the Puppy Linux you need in ISO form. It will simply install that ISO within the system. You do not have to worry, it will still boot automatically to Windows in a few seconds. Best to use the latest Puppy Linux and make sure it sees everything on your computer first. Just use a flash drive installer (Rufus) and try it out like a Live CD. Does the job…

— I post things like above to do with computers in that you may fix your own issues one day. It does not hurt to have this information and if you are reading this blog right now, you are on a computer of some type. Information is the key to success and you need to learn all your life…

— Time to walk Boza in the sunshine. It is cold as all get out, but it is beautiful to walk in. Yesterday, Boza and I walked to the Fish House and looked around. Then we walked the lake bed. The bed is almost frozen hard enough to walk safely, but we found a few soft spots. Just have to be careful….

— For those who have asked, Svetochka is doing good in Moscow, she misses us and we miss her, but she is busy as always and her mother has a birthday and Sveta will be going to her today to celebrate. As far as Mother in laws are concerned, Sveta’s mother is a jewel and a very good person. An old Soviet intellect, who from my understanding was working with computers in the old days. I bet she has seen some interest changes in computers over the years? She has a Samsung Tablet in the 10inch size and uses that to look at the internet. I see lots of babushkas with tablets in the villages. These ladies stay in tune with the world and know what is going on…

kteatimeTime to walk Boza and see the world of the Tiny Russian Village…
