Yeah. I graduated from my training at the end of March, and went to stay with my sister for a few months in Jacksonville until college started a couple weeks ago.

Bit annoyed today we paid in advance to see the great mosque which contains the Christian cathedral in the middle ipg the mosque in Córdoba to avoid ques as we weren't have enough time otherwise to see it, someone from our tour group took our tickets so we never saw the inside of the building. We had a refund and the tour guide is down by 20 euros in the pocket.

We decided to go to the palace park instead and found it closes early afternoon so we just ended up wondering in streets and having lunch in a cafe and buying ice creams until the coach turned up. We did find an ancient Roman site through.

Only 13 out of 36 people wanted to see this so that's why not everyone had tickets we were supposed to be two of the thirteen

I am hoping the storm rips the screen porch off my backyard so I can have a lovely 4-season conservatory put in.

Will be on-and-off bachelor this week, since Mrs. jMack's mom (Alzheimer's sufferer) is in hospital and needs people there the whole time.  Nurses really can't give her the constant oversight. So, not the best circumstances, but will try to do some writing and reading.

Well that's a positive way to look at it. You're in Savannah right?

Damn. I'll be praying for the strength needed for the times to come.

We're under a tropical storm warning now. I have no idea why since it's not raining and the winds aren't blowing too bad but... it only extends until 8:30 PM. If it went into tomorrow when the storm arrives that would make sense.

I'm trying to get all of my digital assignments done before tomorrow since the power might go out. If all goes as planned, I'll only have history reading to do which I don't need the Internet for.

I'm in Augusta near the river (not within the flood plain), where I-20 crosses.

I'm all for positive outlooks ;D

In annoying news, my stupid printer stopped working - the laptop simply refuses to properly install the needed new drivers >:( I had a multi-purpose printer that had stopped scanning and copying, now it stopped printing as well ::)
Why can't these things last more than a few years?

Because that would mean you wouldn't have to buy the "all new model from the same brand with features like useless button number one, useless button number three, and that fancy new way of printing that you never knew you needed!"

Caught the first Irma raindrop on the nose as I was outside scenting the wind. The trees are in motion and the wind's just beginning to pick up. It begins.

I've been to Granada three years ago. Loved it! :)
