TCC for 10/3/10:
Not too long ago the Caretaker checked the outside thermometer: 56 degrees, the temperature at the time in the Ghetto, 54 degrees. The Caretaker has put a sweater on for the first time in an awfully long while. This morning, when he woke up, the outside temperature was 50 degrees, the inside temperature was the same. It's looking like the Caretaker is going to have to start breaking out his winter gear. By tomorrow morning the temperature on the mainland is supposed to get down to 38 degrees, that's only 6 degrees above freezing. Since the Lake is still relatively warm it probably won't get down much below 50 by this coming morning here on the Island. However, it still makes for a cool start to the day and when the wind is blowing from the North, a chilly breeze in the outdoor shower. Anyway, the following photo was taken this evening at sundown:
The remaining photos are even more flower photos from the King's Garden at Fort Ticonderoga, note in the one immediately below, another vampire bee.
The photo below is the core image used for the blog cover photo (10/3/10 - 10/10/10) the image was mirrored over 9 times in photo shop.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second year of living year round on the Island:
The Caretaker would like to apologize for the extended hiatus, it was not by his design. Unfortunately Microsoft has decided that it would be a good idea to reconfigure Hotmail in such a way that it is basically useless. As it stands, The Caretaker can not send e-mail from his contact lists. Yes the Caretaker could install Microsoft's latest browser, but the Caretaker doesn't use Microsoft's browser and sees no reason why he should start now.
So, because Microsoft decided to pull a Sony, the Caretaker has switched all his contacts over to a Yahoo account. Please note the Caretaker will be letting his Hotmail account go defunct. As far as the Caretaker is concerned, not only is Hotmail and Microsoft dead to him, but so too Mr. Gates.
Also, the Caretaker is currently running into glitches with Yahoo, oh, and something is up with the local server, the Caretaker's internet connection is about three to four times slower then usual. So, if the speed doesn't improve, there probably won't be any more IR's.
Other than that, nothing much to report.
And so without further distraction, today's photo:
