Raining outside , and the middle of the night. The shakes are a lot like a metal roof, the rain makes a lot of noise. I got up and watched The Time Machine on television. This was a version that I hadn't seen before, and they took some liberties with the book but it wasn't bad.
Supposed to rain and thunderstorm all tonight and tomorrow. I suppose it doesn't matter if I'm up late now because I can sleep all day. Didn't have anything planned. My daughter called around nine. She was upset because one of her exotic lizards had died. It was an Argentinean Tagu, a type of monitor lizard. Apparently it was not doing well at a pet store so they gave it to her to get rid of it. She kept it alive for two years but it had been injured somewhere along the way and finally just gave out. I told her she had done all she could do, and there are some things people don't control. It's a hard idea to get used to though.
I think I'll listen to short wave for awhile. I should be able to get World Wide Christian Radio Network, which is a fine station. Some of their broadcasts are truly bizarre but some of it is survivalist related and pretty interesting. If I'm still up at four thirty I can pick up Australian Broadcasting Corporation and they have good programs. We'll see.
