[An examination of Linus Pauling’s tenure at Stanford University. This is part 5 of 7.] Linus Pauling knew going into his appointment at Stanford University that grants and outside funding would of paramount importance to keeping his research afloat. In September 1972 – three years into his tenure – Paulin

It was another busy day that got off to a slow start since I was already tired out. I finally got Strawberry, the Lebanon boy fixed yesterday, returned maybe at 10:30 or so.  Then it was off to Brownsville.  Diana had gone to a neighbors since their old pug ended up in her yard.  And while there, saw their cat.  The ca

Well, as is the usual with cat round up, things went awry.  Some cats I thought were for sure's to come, to be fixed, didn't make it, so I had to scrounge up others.  I often now rely on the caregivers themselves to catch the cats, which is easier on my body. The lady who feeds Gigi, the torti with kittens in my bathroom

I've been trying to catch some Lebanon cats, whose owner died, so they can go elsewhere.  Meow Village had told the son of the deceased owner, they would take the five, but they're not easy to catch. However, in seven long hours last night, I caught one cat.  Ha!  ONE CAT.  Ivy, the old mackerel tabby female.  I didn'

Ten years ago today, I experienced my last moment as a single woman and the first moment of never wanting to be without you. Happy fake anniversary, Mr. Wonderful! . (Ok, seriously, I have never celebrated a fake anniversary in my life, but ten years of togetherness is a long time. That's over 10,000 meals that I have cooke

Week 19 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. "Thatch" is a dirty word around our house now. The Man, with some help from my amazing Dad, rented a power rake. We (yes, I helped do yardwork too) tore out over half of the organic material in our lawn. It was bad bad, especially with moss, but now the seed c

Sly, as I call him, the big orange tabby tux, from the Albany trailer park, had been here a week by the time I got him to Heartland Humane today, to be fixed.  Among other things. I held out getting him fixed because I knew Heartland might help him out further, with his bad eyes.  I figured those discharging sore eyes we

[Looking back on Pauling’s tenure at Stanford University. This is part 4 of 7.] While at Stanford, Pauling actively sought to make the best use that he could of the laboratory and computing equipment available on the campus. In June 1970, about a year after his arrival, Pauling wrote to Paul John Flory, then the [R

So today seven more local cats were fixed. I went up to Lebanon on Saturday evening, unprepared, forgot extra traps, forgot my line, to tie around a bottle for selective trapping. It worked out anyway. She found a seven foot piece of old curtain pull line and she had an empty Mountain Dew bottle too. These old things are

The big links tend to eat the smaller links, but new links are born every day to replace them. Here now are a few links gathered from their natural habitat and presented for exhibition. Remember TV? They still make shows for it and some of them are enjoyable. If you're a fan of

My view for the last four days has been gorgeous. The Man and I joined my parents and sister in Discovery Bay, WA, for a vacation. This is our second trip to the Puget Sound in a year, and we're completely in love with the area. Perfect weather, cool air, and calm water: just what we needed to relax and unwind. . #discovery

We spend a lot of time waiting on trains where I live.   Queen street, a major thoroughfare, includes an intersection owned by the railroads.   They like to stop traffic for long periods many times a day while they build trains.  Back and forth they go.   Adding cars, dropping cars and flaunting traffic who wait and

I like to take photos.   Now I am using my phone more than usual to take photos. I have even been watching videos on a facebook phone camera school page to try to improve. I usually practice at the county park.  Here are some of my latest.

[An examination of Linus Pauling’s years at Stanford University, part 3 of 7.] From the outset, Linus Pauling knew that his time at Stanford as a full professor would be short-lived. Hesitant from the beginning, Stanford had stipulated that Pauling’s contract go up for renewal every year and that his reappointme

Yesterday I took five cats to be fixed. I took Hank from Albany.  Hank, a big male, from Albany, neutered yesterday Hank is likely a lost boy.  His feeder says he was quite fat when he first showed up a year ago, but lost weight in the following year.  He was likely once owned then left behind when someone moved le
