What’s the weather like?

Sunday, August 24th, 2003

I setup a little plugin at the top left of the main page to show the weather in Muncie. It’s using AMK4’s weathernws plugin to grab the weather and print it out on the page.

I’m also using tima’s mt-rebuild plugin to rebuild the main index. Right now, I’m updating the page every three hours — no need to add more stress to NOAA’s servers really. Pretty neat plugin, maybe I can find some more things to use it for.

Little Duckies

Wednesday, August 6th, 2003

I was over at mom’s house tonight, sitting outside with Grandma and her friend. We were feeding the ducks some stale hot dog buns and they were loving life. About 25 ducks were around, but only 7 babies and their mama were brave enough to get close to me where I was throwing the food. There was even an ugly Canadian Goose out there that was hissing at anything that moved.

I walked around to the side of the house and noticed that the ducks kinda walked towards me. Then I went to sit back down and they walked back up to me again. Hmm.. those ducks sure do like me. I walked around the yard a little and the ducks seemed to follow me wherever I went. So I got a piece of bread and walked about 50 yards down the shoreline was I threw off pieces, ducks followed the entire way. How cute 🙂
