desperate for rain.

Oct 20 - it rained a little; yesterday was last day of Indian Summer 23C and today it is 7C with snow in the forecast within the next week.  - yesterday I changed to winter tires on our car.  We dug carrots the day before.

I read My System and got serious about chess, twice. I play pool, sip scotch, and lager beer. I hunt big game, and fish. I like to garden, compost, prune fruit trees, grow apples and cherries, and get my hands in dirt. For many years I have raised tropical fish including betas, catfish and angelfish. I am a home maintenance handyman working on the honey-do list.  I used to work as an Information Technology developer using systems life cycle methodologies. I liked to develop the database design to solve the whole business problem so as to have a solid foundation for the functionality to be added later when budget, resources or schedule run short on the initial project.  Now I am retired and working as a handyman catching up on renovations to our house and garage.
