i got to thinking last night, that i hadn't really played any serious chess in nigh on forty years, so i decided to call my bro, who has played online chess for years...3 problems...i lost the scrape of paper i wrote his number on, couldn't remember it,  and no telephone book, but thanks to whitepagers.com...and he gave me the names of several sites...haven't tried 1 yet...but...

i rarely eat breakfast, well in the morning anyways, but if i go to a diner i will almost always order breakfast regardless of the time of day....but i'm getting ahead of myself...quiet day...but to many my eating habits and what i consume may seem a bit weird, i rarely eat a big meal, prefer to eat multiple small meals...but today's menu...very typical...well at least for me, polish sausage with BBQ sauce, a few figs, Turkish,..some olives, mix of Greek and Italian...most with pits....and a soft pretzel......and i'll be up a few more hours...so who knows what else may pass...spent most of the day watching some boob tube, and playing Blogshares...found a new tactic...
someone asked me the other day if i was going to go see the new Star Wars movie, and i quipped that i would wait to see it on HBO, truth be told the last fix i saw at a movie house was the original Star Trek movie...but the 7 film in the series, if it was 7 peeps playing music it would be a septet, you know i can leave it there, etymology of septet.

so i made one of  my nocturnal walks tonight, i needed a few things, but most of all, i wanted to take a walk and put some mileage on my new shoes...but glad i did...the food market i shop at from time to time has breaded precooked shrimp at a good price, i got 2 packages...3 cans of soup on sale...a brick of good local cheese on special, and a frozen cheese steak sandwich...
It's Beethoven's birthday today, and he doesn't look a day of 245 years old...

the weather the next four days could be strange, Thursday and Friday, rain and the probability of snow this weekend...welcome to late fall in the NorthCountry....which leads to the possibility of snow cover...now we have had on occasion a green Christmases but they are rare, by this time we usually have snow cover...

The Latin police have not bothered me for a long time but this post and the link i've added may get them back, they may even swear out an injunction against me to never use a latin word again, when i was a kid we  used a form  of communication to confuse those who didn't know the gag...i've placed a link to a pig latin/english translator on the right..........
i've changed the template here again, also added some more links to the right
