Good afternoon everyone.  I did happen to get up at about 7:30 this morning (shock of all shocks) but so far today, I’ve gotten a lot done.  I went to Telnor and paid my bill without having to wait and then I ventured to Bancomer and I saw a bank officer and stood in line and paid off my Bancomer credit card and made a deposit to my account.  That only took about twenty minutes, if that.  I drove by where the peeps go for breakfast club and honked, but I was on a roll getting things done, so I didn’t stop.  I then went to the light company (CFE) and I was in and out in just a few minutes so my electric bill is paid.  I can certainly tell I used an electrical heater last month, as it brought my bill up about $500 Pesos.  After that, I went to the water company and there was a bit of a wait, but they have chairs so it was no big deal.  I couldn’t believe my water bill was under $300 Pesos, so that was a nice surprise.  Skooter chewed up the latest bill, so I used an older one for her to scan.  I came home and made hash browns and eggs, one of which had two yokes in it (does that mean the chicken was going to have twins?).  I ended up giving the two yoked egg to Skooter.  I washed the dishes, hung a load of clothes, changed the sheets on my bed; swept and mopped the floors and now I’m ready for a nap and it’s only 12:24 pm.  Photo by Kat Hammontre.

Good morning everyone and this will be posted early as I’ve not gotten on to Facelessbook tonight, so I can write zee Korner without interruptions.  We had a beautiful day today, at least what I saw of it.  I had planned to drive up to El Centro to have my cameras fixed (after the Baja 250) but I never made it there.  I really am trying to turn my sleeping habits around, but I couldn’t sleep, so rather than toss and turn, I just stayed up.  I did get two loads of laundry (actually three, but the third one is still in the washer) done and on the line and they dried quickly with the sunny morning we had.  Otherwise, I would have had to take them to Juanita, so I was grateful for the sun, so now I can pay for my “full monty” with my surrogate mother and spiritual adviser, Diane Pilota.  I’m telling you; she’s the best!  I went to bed after I put the second load on the line, as Justino put the first one up.  (Thank God for the little midge).  I am trying to reverse my sleeping patterns because I slept until 5:00 p.m. last evening.  If you tried to call me on my cell, it was in the bottom of my purse and I took my land line off the hook, more or less, because once I get woken up, I can’t get back to sleep.  At least that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.  If I don’t go onto to Facelessbook, I can get Kat’s Korner finished and posted to the World Wide Web quickly, but once I open up Facelessbook, it’s ding, ding, ding with personal messages, which is okay, but it does interfere with my “creative” writing jaja.  By the way, if you want news on a great site, try DailyKos.com.  I subscribe and some of the articles are written sarcastically, but great writing and more or less a “liberal” site.  I know many think the word liberal is worse than the “F” word but I’m a liberal and proud of it.  Here’s an example and it’s funny and informative.  I know; to each his own!  Photo by Kat Hammontre.

Good morning everyone, at least I hope it will be early morning by the time I have today’s column finished.  I’m making an album of Contingency for Kat’s Korner, but I have to wait until the update for my gallery is finished.  Some of photos may be duplicates of the ones I’ve already posted to Kat’s Korner and some on Facebook, but until I finish my Word Press free video tutorials (where I can put the entire album on the Korner) I’ll have to use Kat’s Galleries.  I only have photos I took and I’m waiting for others to contribute, but if they don’t, I think I have enough.  It was a long weekend, and yesterday, I stayed in the house the entire day and I didn’t even wake up until 1:00.  I was so sorry to miss Ed Friend’s Celebration of Life, as he was a Kat’s Korner fan and a friend.  However, not a good day on Sunday but today’s a new day and hopefully, I’ll snap out of it.  I’ve just made an album of Contingency on Kat’s Galleries and if you click the photo below, it will take you to the album.  At the top of the album, there is an arrow to start the slide show and there are about 315 photos, some good, some not so good.  Photo by James Hatton.
