Do you know WHAT ELSE is a Rodent?

We had two grays : Edgar and Zoe. After a couple of decades they passed on.

Then we got two old boys: Skitch the White and Shadow the Black. Then we had a young'un, Kikwi the Grey brought in. Skitch and Shadow have since left for Chinchilla Heaven but Kikwi is still very active. He's banded with the Cat against the two corgi puppy bros that have been with us since July.

"Kikwi" from Zelda, or course. IYKYK.

Also, IIRC, in Leviticus bats are birds (the kind you can't eat, like hoopoes, which actually are birds).

My bible is in a stack of books on the floor because we moved the bookshelves into the office and I haven't gotten everything put back on the shelves yet.  But I definitely think Leviticus says bats are among the birds you can't eat.

Over the years there has always been at least 4 woodchuck burrows at cardinal points of the property.

"Fat Willy," "Little Willy," "Other Willie" and "Mystery Willie."

I've never seen Mystery Willie, but have tripped over his burrow.

Every spring there are several Mama Willies with Tiny Willies in tow wandering around, and so the circle of life continues.

In all this time, not one has claimed the power of prophecy.

My bible is in a stack of books on the floor because we moved the bookshelves into the office and I haven't gotten everything put back on the shelves yet.  But I definitely think Leviticus says bats are among the birds you can't eat.


According to my Bible, NIV, Leviticus 11:13 says "These are the birds you are to detest and not eat because they are detestable: the eagle, the vulture, the black vulture, the red kite, any kind of black kite, any kind of raven, the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, the little owl, the cormorant, the great owl, the white owl, the desert owl, the osprey, the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat."

So yeah I guess you aren't supposed to eat bats. My two main takeaways from this though are (1) Dudes loved owls; (2) Cormarants? Like, why? You don't like them sunning their beautiful wings out on the rocks? Jealous much?

Our local custom was

ONETWOTHREEFOURFIVEJINXYOUOWEMEACOKE followed by arguing about who got to five first and come to think of it I don't think anyone ever actually got a Coke.

Hmmm.  Now I feel like I have a lot of Cokes coming due from past failures of companions to PAY UP.

I have an spa-400 to interface between POTS and SIP, and it reports the voltage. SMOP to put it in a graph which I have some chance of noticing.

Fun fact: polling their http interface once a minute chewed up so much cpu on the device that there was a noticeable audio dropout. So I went at the CLI with a rubber hose and found a much lower-overhead undocumented command that gave the same info.

Pac Bell's successors and assigns would dearly love to abandon its copper physical plant. They continue to neglect it with predictable results. Five nines my hairy butt.

Usually we get rain fade in the overhead interconnects, but there were no issues during our month-long deluge December/January. Been severe clear for a couple weeks so this problem seems likely to be more CO incompetence as I experienced in 2021.
