It is raining again. More flood watches out. Last time around I saw corn fields by the river under water. All this warm air coming up out of the Gulf is making things very wet.
Ragnar and Rowena went to the vet today. They probably have adrenal disease, but have to go to a specialist near Atlanta, Georgia this coming week. Then he will decide if they need operations or if they need medicine. The medicine is $250 per ferret for a years supply. It doesn't have a very good success rate. The sad thing is that Europeans dont' neuter their ferrets so young, and adrenal disease is virtually unheard of there. But here, some Senator from New York got a federal law passed that mandates early neutering .His rationale was that he feared some ferrets might escape and interbreed with black faced ferrets, the only wild breed in the U.S. That's BS since domestic ferrets can't survive in the wild, but he got his name on a law and that was the main motivation anyway.
They were working on my computer when I went by the store today. No luck, and the guy said they needed to do a full system restore.
Well, I could have done that by myself for free. But I think the young man has been doing what he could, so I told him to go ahead. I have also called my son and asked him to look for a good computer for me up where he lives because I am never, ever going to get into a position again where I have no backup system. It's supremely ironic, because I have backups to backups for almost every essential system on this mountain, but because I don't relate the computer to my survivalist planning, I didn't worry about it. Thank God I had the modicrum of good sense necessary to at least back up the important files daily. I'd be really shipwrecked at tax time, among other things, without that.
All of my logistics records are Excel spreadsheets, as well.
