Today Increasing cloudiness. 60 percent chance of flurries this afternoon with risk of freezing rain. Wind becoming northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 this afternoon. High plus 1. Wind chill minus 19 in the morning. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Mainly cloudy with 60 percent chance of flurries. Wind northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light before morning. Low minus 7. Wind chill minus 7 in the evening and minus 13 overnight.

I woke up at 32 Songbird Lane, and had breakfast, then trimmed my beard and pressed my slacks for tomorrow.

Steph's Mom, Suzi, and aunt Lucinda came at one-thirty, then an hour later they left for the house near the venue that Jon rented on Airbnb for the occasion.

The Airbnb house was supposed to be ready at three, but the lockbox did not open with the code and Suzi, James, and Lucinda waited over an hour while the locksmith arrived to let them in.

We arrived around four and killed time waiting for our supper reservation at five. The house is a mansion in a designed community, Ladera Ranch.  The wedding had reserved the community centre.

We went to Pino's Cusina at five and met Jean and family there. for supper

After supper Steph, Jon and I drove back to Songbird Lane. I was in bed before nine.

Tomorrow's the wedding.

100th anniversary of the end of WWI
Jon and Steph's wedding day

Today Mainly cloudy with 30 percent chance of flurries. Wind up to 15 km/h. High minus 3. Wind chill near minus 8. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Clearing early this evening. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 13. Wind chill minus 7 in the evening and minus 16 overnight.

I slept well and was awake at six.  I went back to sleep until seven and got up, warmed some coffee, cooked eggs and here I am, writing. 

Jon, Max and I had to meet the party supplies people at eleven at Ladera Ranch, so we drove up there in the van, found that everything was under control, hauled the coolers and boxes of drink from the van to the bar and went for ice at the restaurant where Max's girlfriend's works.  We had lunch at Baja Fresh, then went to Home Depot for stakes to hold down the arch and drove back to the wedding location where we loaded the coolers with the ice.

By then it was only an hour until the wedding. Jon and Max and Steph went back to the rented house to change and I stayed on site.

Half an hour before the ceremony, people began showing up.  A Polaroid camera and guest book was on the table at the entry but no one was there, so i took on the job of photographing arrivals and mounting the pictures while the guests signed the guestbook.

The ceremony happened on time and was mercifully short.

This is from a guy who was married at city hall with two friends as witnesses.  Cost: $50 and a blood test.  That $50 wedding lasted almost fifty years.

Afterwards pictures were taken and the party started. My brother and family and the Piirto bunch all were present as were the Orams.

Other than the music being unbearably loud, everything went well, but the older folks split early due to the racket. 

The music was good, but loud enough that an industrial inspector would have shut them down or required earplugs.  I finally put in earplugs fashioned from paper towel and that helped. 

The intense sound did not seem to bother the dancers, though.  I wonder how their hearing will be when they get to my age.

Steph and Jon stayed right to the end but Steph made the mistake of paying the helpers before everything was cleaned up, so the helpers disappeared and at the very end, it was Graham and me doing the final put-aways.

I drove back to 32 Songbird in the van full of leftovers.

When I went to bed by eleven Jon and Steph were still upstairs getting ready to call Uber to take them to their hotel at LAX.  Their flight is a ten tomorrow, but morning traffic on the 73, 405, and 5 is brutal and they figured to get up there early.

I have watched many couples and it is clear that these two truly love one another. I have never seen them quarrel.

Today Mainly cloudy. Clearing late this afternoon. Wind west 20 km/h. High plus 5. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight A few clouds. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 7. Wind chill minus 3 in the evening and minus 10 overnight.

I stayed in and did not go out all day, but I did unload the van and was surprised to discover the beer was all missing.  There is a lot of wine and liquor left over but no beer.

At home, the weather is moderating and the ground is still bare.  The pond is frozen.

Today A mix of sun and cloud. Wind becoming west 20 km/h gusting to 40 this afternoon. High 12. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Partly cloudy. 30 percent chance of showers overnight. Wind west 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Low minus 4. Wind chill near minus 8.

Katrina and I drove to Disneyland in Steph's SUV to meet up with Jean and family as planned. 

We found ourselves parked about as far from the shuttle as you can get and had a long walk. After paying $97 each, we entered "The Happiest Place on Earth".

The others texted that they were farther in and lined up for some ride, so we had a chili dog. Next, we  took the African River Tour and went through Tarzan's Tree House. 

I am proud of my monsteras at home, but This one on the riverbank (left) is far bigger.

By then the Orams were at the exit from Pirates of the Caribbean and we joined up. From there, we lined up for a number of rides, including Space Mountain. 

I don't stand in lineups if I have an option, but with friends, I do. Not gleefully, though. I think we are idiots to stand in line when there are flowers to sniff or almost anything else to do besides stand with a bunch of other idiots  It reminds me of cattle in a chute wafting for slaughter. I wonder what they think...

The length of the lines is hidden cleverly by snaking them out of sight and around corners or I would have decided against.  Once in line, it seems the end is close, then there is another corner and another long line... 

Space mountain had an interminable line that snaked through small red-lit passages and the noise of people talking/shouting was uncomfortably loud.

After an hour, by chance, Jean and I found ourselves sitting in the lead car and the ride began.

Space Mountain is a roller coaster of sorts in total dark, with pinpoint lights that are supposed to be stars.  The track does not have any long drops or inversions and mostly just pulls Gs and shakes people around somewhat pointlessly.

I like roller coasters, but found this one annoying, and I could feel my neck being stressed dangerously.  For some reason this ride has no head support.  The shaking very nearly gave me whiplash.

Rides like the Mindbender at West Edmonton Mall have good head support and I wonder how many people suffer neck damage here.

Sometime during the day, I received an email from Miguel.  He had obtained a receipt for the rescue, so we can go on the the next stage.

From Space Mountain, we lined up a few more times then rode the monorail and the race cars. 

Next, they wanted to line up for the Haunted House but by then, I was getting tired and took the train around the perimeter of the park.

We met at Toon Town and on the way out, we lined up for the train, but by then it was getting dark and the train was full as people began heading for the exit. Katrina and I walked to the exit and by then it was quite dark in the back areas. 

However, the front areas were brightly lit.  People were lined up already for the Christmas parade expected at six. 

Christmas? It isn't even Thanksgiving yet.

The Orams planned to have supper and watch the parade.  Katrina and I found the exit, took the tram, did the long walk to the car and drove back on the five.  Traffic was slow in spots, but we were in the HOV lane.  We exited at El Toro and stopped at Stater Bros for groceries, then went home.

Supper was salmon steak and corn of the cob with strawberries for dessert.  Katrina had homework and an early morning.  I was tired and went to bed at nine.

Today A mix of sun and cloud. 30 percent chance of showers late this afternoon. High 12. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Partly cloudy. 30 percent chance of showers early this evening. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 4. Wind chill near minus 7.

I'm still tired.  I took the last of the antibiotic and my feet are now pretty well healed. I spent the day catching up on correspondence and other deskwork.  I still have lots to do.

I didn't get out much today.  Daisy and I walked around the block and that was it.  Katrina came home from school and we had supper of frozen burritos, broccoli and salad plus the last of the strawberries.

Katrina has been playing music from Spotify when we are driving around and I am impressed with some of the new music, so I decided to give Spotify a try again.

Once set up, I listened to some of the streams that she has set as public, but then got distracted digging up old favourites of mine. I was surprised at how much classic country I chose --Merle Haggard, Charlie Pride, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, David Alan Coe, Johnny Cash, Tom T Hall, Tammy Wynet, and more, then of course a lot of sixties pop and bit from the fifties.

I watched a bit more of Designated Survivor and went to bed.

Today Mainly sunny. Increasing cloudiness late this afternoon. High 7. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Periods of rain changing to snow after midnight. Snowfall amount 2 cm. Wind becoming north 20 km/h gusting to 40 after midnight. Low minus 10. Wind chill minus 15 overnight.

Katrina was off to school at 0630.  I went back to bed for a while, then had coffee, eggs and bacon.

I know better, but have generally not been taking care of myself lately.  I see that there are new heart guidelines out now.  I should check my numbers against them when I get home and have access to the report I filed.

From time to time I can still feel strain my neck from being shaken on that Disney Space Mountain ride.  I'm surprised they can get away with not having head support.  Even automobiles have provisions to prevent the head from being thrown back by vehicle motion.

I'm on the couch at 32 Songbird at the keyboard again today and feeling better, but have had a slight sore throat for the past few days. I'll get out later today.  Maybe Daisy and I will go to the beach.

We didn't go far.  We did walk around the block, though and I started work on my monthly accounts.

I'm listening to Spotify and finding the selections and mixes that the AI generates are quite relevant and suit my tastes, but the stupid ads are a waste of the advertisers' money and my patience. 

The ads are about thirty seconds long and a huge waste of my time and the advertiser's money. No way I am going to buy a BMW and that is the ad that keeps running pointlessly.

I intended to sign up for a subscription but the Spotify e-commerce interface, like so many, gets confused if a Canadian is in the USA temporarily.

Confusion about postal codes and zip codes and currency makes the forms useless.  I have the same problem with Expedia and airlines.  The system tries to guess from location info gathered by the browser and the location of cell towers nearby or wifi. A VPN further confuses matters.

I got tired of music after a while.  I continue to be very tired, but have finished the antibiotics so maybe that will change.  Soon, I hope.

Today Snow ending this morning then mainly cloudy with 60 percent chance of flurries. Amount 2 to 4 cm. Wind north 30 km/h gusting to 50 becoming light late this afternoon. Temperature falling to minus 15 this afternoon. Wind chill minus 9 in the morning and minus 20 in the afternoon. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Clearing late this evening. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 18. Wind chill near minus 26. Risk of frostbite.

I slept in, then made some oatmeal.  Time to get back on track.  I still have a sore throat in mornings especially and think I must be snoring.  I'll quit drinking completely for a while and see if that ends it.

I see we had snow last night in Swalwell and the weather is predicted to be bitterly cold today.

 I enjoy walking around the block with Daisy daily when I'm here in Aliso Viejo. Songbird Lane is located in an interesting little neighbourhood. The houses all vary in design and range in size and expense, but all feature fairly complex traditional exteriors and all have a two-car garage. Having worked in construction, I know the exterior complexity adds greatly to cost of building and later in maintenance, but people like the look.

Front yards are tiny and the back yards are fenced and private. I would describe this neighbourhood as lower middle class or working class, but these terms are not too useful.  My impression is that these families typically  have working parents and children in school.  Vehicles appear new and well maintained. 

I looked up the definitions of classes and find that in the US, class appears to be defined solely by income.  That strikes me as odd, since income does not uniquely determine class elsewhere.  In other countries, heredity, family, manners and upbringing are stronger determinants than income at any particular point in time.

Although most yards are kept neat and people don't work on the street, on my walks I encountered one fellow, with both front wheels off his truck, doing his own ball joints with his vehicle at the curb.  He said he was doing a $1,600 job for $250 and ensuring he has quality components. I found that activity unusual for this neighbourhood.

I'm going to do a wash, have a walk, and finish (I hope) my bookkeeping today.

I managed to get Spotify Premium.  I'm not sure how I managed to get around the interface, but I did .  99c a month for the first three months, then $9.99/mo. Will I get tired of it?  We'll see.

I did more reconciliations and verified that Baja Magic's insurance was renewed.  I need to have insurance to be allowed in a marina.

Katrina came home from school and is off to a birthday party.  She has no school for a week now.  Thanksgiving is next Thursday.  Jon and Steph return on Sunday, or is it Monday?  I have conflicting info. Monday seems more likely, seeing as they left on a Monday.  They come in at 4:25 whatever the day and that is just in time for rush hours heading south on the five and four o five.

*    *    *     *    *

It has been my habit when arriving here in Laguna to head for the beach and I'm a bit surprised that I'm not doing that this trip, but then again, I've had enough of beaches and surf for a while. My scratches are just about healed.

*    *    *     *    *

Daisy and I made the walk around the block just before sunset at six. I really should take a longer walk.  Maybe tomorrow. 

My throat is still a little sore and I have been tired and uninspired.

 Saturday November 17th 2018

Today Sunny. Wind southwest 20 km/h. High minus 8. Wind chill minus 27 in the morning and minus 13 in the afternoon. Risk of frostbite. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Clear. Increasing cloudiness near midnight then 30 percent chance of flurries before morning. Risk of freezing rain before morning. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 14 with temperature rising to minus 6 by morning. Wind chill minus 17 in the evening and minus 11 overnight.

 I slept well, but woke up some time after midnight. I knew I would not sleep for a while, so got up and had two small burritos and a banana.  I know that eating at night is s no-no, but I had not had supper. After a while, I went back to bed and slept well until 0730.

I did not drink anything but coffee and water yesterday and that made a difference in my sleep, I think.

I still have a slight sore throat and am now thinking it may be strep.  I have a tendency to strep throat and in the past it has taken an antibiotic to get rid of it.  Seeing as I was taking Levofloxacin until two days ago and the that drug is supposedly effective against strep, I wonder, since the sore throat has been going on for a while.

Jon and Steph land at LAX tomorrow at 4:35. I'll be picking them up there.

This has been a short week.  I've done almost nothing.

At home, the ground is now covered with snow.  I see the bin auger has been running for an hour now.  The house is warm, though.

I'm not feeling up to snuff, so I spent the day playing with Spotify, doing bookkeeping, and somehow the day passed.

I finished Designated Survivor and went back to Bodyguard.

Some people remember names and details of the videos and movies they watch.  I don't and sometimes forget I've watched an episode until I start watching.  In this case, It had been a while, so I watched the pilot and first episode over again.  Basically, this is just a way of killing time until other things become more interesting again.

I went to bed around nine.

Today Periods of light snow or rain mixed with freezing rain ending this afternoon then cloudy. High plus 4. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Clearing. Wind up to 15 km/h. Low minus 8. Wind chill minus 5 in the evening and minus 11 overnight.

I slept until eight-thirty. Next, breakfast and a shower, then tidy up and drive to LA.

My plan is to spend a few hours there before I pick up J&S at LAX.  I don't spend a lot of time in LA these days since it is over an hour from Aliso Viejo and could be more with random traffic jams on the 405.

I'm feeling better and my throat is almost back to normal and that is a relief.  I still have some minor version of PTSD, judging by my dreams and sleep.  It's interesting -- not upsetting, but repetitive ruminations centered on my recent experiences.

I had considered seeing a doctor or taking the next series of Levofloxacin I have on hand for the sore throat, but held off.  I was  just coming off my first Levofloxacin series when my throat became sore, and Levofloxacin is listed along with amoxicillin to treat strep, so I figured the sore throat might be viral.  Maybe it was, or maybe the strep is resistant to Levofloxacin. 

It's nine-thirty so I had better get moving.

Wax moths are a minor nuisance in our climate. As mentioned, they are
easily controlled by freezing they are also inhibited by fresh air. They
require a closed, humid environment to multiply, so in some warm regions
combs are stored in the open on racks so they are exposed to circulating
fresh air.

Normally the damage done by a few larvae is easily repaired by the bees.
Unless the entire midrib is eaten, you'll be surprised how well the combs
can be repaired by bees.

Simply exposing the nest and affected combs to air will disrupt wax worm
activity. They require warmth and moisture to do more than the odd track.
If a number can get going in some warm, protected space, then, together
they can generate the heat and moisture they need to expand and do real
damage..

Air and cold will stop them and torching is completely unnecessary. Moth
balls are a toxic compound that should never be anywhere near food. If you
Google mothballs, you may decide you don't even want them in your closets.

It was eleven by the time I left and drove north on the 405. Traffic was moving well and we were doing 80 much of the way.  The limit is 65 but no one seems to care. There was no rel slowdown until I passed Century Blvd.  I was headed for Venice.

I drove down Venice to the beach and found no parking for less than $10, so drove a few blocks east and found a spot, then walked back to the boardwalk. 

I had not been here for a while but not much has changed.  The most notable thing was the "Bird" scooters everywhere.  I considered renting one, but see they cost about $10/hr and also defeat one purpose of going to Venice -- walking for exercise.

The scooters, rented via an app, cost $1 to unlock and about $0.15 to ride per minute. You can find them everywhere and drop them pretty well anywhere, so they may prove useful, but not today.

I hadn't had lunch, so ordered a breakfast burrito which proved to be a meal. Being Sunday, the boardwalk was crowded. I wandered over to the skate park.  A few skaters made a ride or two, but there were no really impressive show-offs competing.

From there, I watched the skate dancers for a while, had a coffee and walked back to the car. I drove to LAX, then on down to the MacDonalds on Sepulveda and had supper.

The plane was scheduled for 4:35, but my app said it was delayed to 5:07 so I waited, then drove through to terminal B.

Jon texted they had touched down and were taxiing in. I waited as long as allowed, then drove around a few times, then began to wonder.

It was over an hour before they finally came out. Several planes had come in at the same time and customs had been jammed up.

We drove back to 32.  Steph showered and headed for Palm Desert to pick up Brendan who is at his grandma's. Jon, Katrina, and I socialized until bedtime.

Today Mainly cloudy with 30 percent chance of flurries early this morning. Clearing this morning. Fog patches dissipating this morning. Wind becoming southwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 this afternoon. High 6. UV index 1 or low.
Tonight Clear. Wind southwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Low minus 8. Wind chill minus 4 in the evening and minus 11 overnight.

I'm up at six-thirty and finally feeling like myself.  At home, the snow is melting.

I spent the day doing deskwork and took Daisy for a long walk in the afternoon.

Steph and Brandon returned mid-morning, so now everyone is home.

Almost three weeks have passed now, with no action from the insurance, so I took a friend's advice and contacted another surveyor in La Paz and will get a second opinion about repairs.
