Same Stuff, Different House

I’ve been focusing lately on the government corruption and underhanded dealings here on Guam. Well it appears the Bush administration does the same thing, only on a much larger scale.

I guess people want to pad their pockets at the expense of others around the world. Always have, always will. This is why we’re doomed as a species.

What’s on Tap the Weekend?

One word: TYPHOON!!

Barring the passage of Typhoon Pongsana, I intend to start Les Miserable, do some laundry and house cleaning, piddle around on the computer, and otherwise just veg out. I need it.

Oh, I got an email this morning telling me that CD Now has merged with Amazon. An internet juggernaut picks up steam. I lost my CD Now Wish List in this merger though. Bummer

Storm Tracking

This morning’s prediction for Pongsana indicates that it will pass east/northeast of Guam and Saipan. It’s a part of life here, everybody keeps and eye on the storm and makes their own judgement when to hunker down and batten the hatches. I am hopeful this cyclone will pass harmlessly, but I still got gas in the jeep, extra gas for the generator, made sure the typhoon shutters are loose and smooth running, took an inventory of the contents in my freezer, made sure the generator fired up, and picked up loose crap from around the house. Since I spent a couple days last weekend clearing brush and trimming trees, the foliage should present no problems. I need to pull the yard furniture inside the house, but I’ll wait for that. Hopefully the typhoon won’t hit and I can relax this weekend. It’s been a tough week at work and I could use the rest.
