Solar Cooling

8 months ago, for day 206 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

This year is turning out to be a hot one, not just for me in California where it is regularly 100Β°F+ (37Β°C+) but for large sections of Europe too. With this year being the hottest year so far, just like last year and the year before that it is looking...

90ΒΊ @ 9 PM

8 months ago, for day 205 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

It was 97ΒΊF (36ΒΊC) when I went shopping this evening. Instead of walking the mile to the store and a mile back as I normally do, I opted to drive. I did not regret that choice too much as I had missed driving my car the last two weeks....

Staying awake

8 months ago, for day 204 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

I’ve been traveling for 23.5 hours and slept for 1 of them. If my grammar is poor or quality low, this is my excuse. I’m writing this on a subway train on my phone with less than 30 minutes left to go - unless I change my timeline to Hawaii....

Goodnight Vienna

8 months ago, for day 203 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

I'm not in Vienna, but this is goodnight. Tomorrow I travel back to California, leaving Wales around 8 AM BST and getting to my home around midnight the same day, but PST (an 8 hour difference). This is easily calculated as a full 24 hours of travel - I have...

Small stuff surprises

8 months ago, for day 202 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Today was a "filler" day on our Wales vacation. Originally we planned on being at RIAT (see earlier posts), but things became re-arranged before we left California and we resorted to our "things to do the next time we are in Wales" list. Item one was to visit the South...

Interflora - the McDonalds of Florists

8 months ago, for day 201 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Today I finally met the florist that I had started using just before St Valentines day in 2013. I was living in California, my girlfriend in Wales. The previous year I had used an Internet Service to send her flowers. They were not-OK. She was happy to receive them, yet...

10+ Investing Thoughts

_This is a little off the cuff, and came from the basis of a reply I wrote to somebody who posed the question: okai i opened an account on a stock traiding app what should i buy i am new to this and would love to learn...

Yesterday and today were the first time myself, my parents and my sister have all been in the same location in twenty five years. Before today I last saw my sister five years ago. The previous time before that was the afore mentioned twenty five years ago. I have seen...

On Set

8 months ago, for day 197 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Films and TV Shows are made on location all over the world. Unless they are extensively altered with CGI it is often easy to visit the places if you wish (and have the means). During my lifetime I have visited many locations that have interested me plus some actual sets....

Home by dark

8 months ago, for day 195 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

I'm in Wales at the moment and it is lighter much later into the evening than in San Francisco. For example: Cardiff Sunset: 21:24 San Francisco Sunset: 20:31 That's almost an entire hour later. Checking sunrise we find: Cardiff Sunrise: 05:11 San Franciso Sunrise: 5:59 Thus, hours of daylight: Cardiff:...
