07:28 pm: New TV Shows and a Mammogram

I watched Lone Star, which I hadn't planned to, but the WashPost reviewer said was better than the trailer showed. It was. We see a boy escaping police with his dad and then 20 years later, the dad has taught his son to be just like him -- a scammer. He has a wife and a mistress, he has sold many many parts of non-existant oil wells, and then his father-in-law (Jon Voight) offered him a real job in a big oil company. His father is angry -- how could he take a real job and not stay with scamming? We'll see.

Then I watched the first episode of Castle for the season and that was good. I watched the tape of The Event and Chase. The Event is going to get one more watching, but I think that's it. It's a lot like Lost except it involves a President. They got to reuse footage over and over, even running some of it very slow, and it ran around time so much you need a dance card to know when you are.

Chase won't be watched again -- a female marshal who seems to have problems with her dad chases bad people and is the one in her group who gets them

I read the paper and went to bed to read at 3am. I read until 5am, which I hadn't planned, because I had to get up at noon. I did get up at noon and reset the alarm for 12:45 and still got to Kaiser in time.

I had my yearly mammogram today and it was the first time since I was 17 that I didn't have to wear the stupid apron. They assume that you're not going to have kids when you turn 55. I was going to do more errands, but the standing and stretching so much made me really tired.

Whenever I see the programmable cat feeder after I'm been asleep or away, it's turned to the right. I don't know who does that or why.

Scientists in Mexico are working with old seeds to help make new grains and plants that will better last the changes in the weather.

They've never had me wear an apron for my mammogram and I'm not that much older than you are.

I've had them since I was 17. The last 33 years have been with Kaiser, and maybe other places don't use them, but the first five years were at hospitals and I had to have the aprons there.
