Acda en de Munnik cover
Acda en de Munnik's Als Het Vuur Gedoofd Is
Lyrics Translated from Dutch to English by Jaggle.
Als Het Vuur Gedoofd Is
When the fire is down

Vrijdagmiddag in het Vondelpark
Friday afternoon in Vondelpark (=famous park in Amsterdam)
November en nat
November and wet
Vlakbij de vijver zit een man
Near the lake(=small lake) sits a man
Herman (Herman,its his name)
En Herman is het zat
And Herman is fed up
Heeft een kutjaar gehad
He has had a bad year

Een man met alles wat je hebben kan
A man who has got everything
Vrouw, kind, huis, auto, baan
Womand, child, house, car, job
Zo'n baan, zo'n baan
such a job, such a job (=meaning great/big job)
Maar Herman wilde het ooit anders
But Herman wanted (long time ago) something else
En denkt daar nu al maanden aan
And he is thinking of that (=memory) now for months
Acda en de Munnik's first CD is one of my favorite CD's of all time.

I picked it up when I was in Amsterdam.

Since then, I've played it a number of times on radio programs, in the Boston area. I've corresponded with the band and they tell me that I'm their #1 US fan.

I wonder if there are any other US fans?

World of Tomorrow, set in late-1930s New York City stars Gwyneth Paltrow as Polly Perkins, a crack reporter working on a story about numerous world-famous scientists that have gone missing.  Around this time, strange flying machines threaten Manhattan, and gigantic walking robots trample city blocks.  To get to the bottom of it all, Polly joins forces with her old flame and sometime adversary Capt. Joseph Sullivan (Jude Law), known as Sky Captain. He commands the Flying Legion, battling bad guys in his Warhawk P-40.  He and Polly fly to a remote part of Nepal (think Shangri-La) to track down the crazed mastermind Dr. Totenkopf, who seems to want to destroy the world.

Birch Street Bistro.
We went to California for dinner tonight.

Well it seemed like California.

Birch Street Bistro in Roslindale is an exciting restaurant we tried for the first time tonight.

The dining room and bar area look great, but we chose to eat outside since it was such a beautiful evening.

It turns out that the patio has been open since July. There was a nice cool breeze, interesting landscaping and nice music.

We started off with drinks. My wife ordered a Chardonnay/Muscat which was described as having a bubble gum finish. :-)

Of course I had to try the Hoegaarden on tap. There was a varied selection of beers both on tap and in bottles. I'll have to go back to try some more.

For dinner I had the Cod, and my wife had a salad with the Chicken Lolipops. Nice name. Both dishes were very tasty.

On our way out we told the owner that we felt like we were away on vacation.

What a great experience.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel
Another new digital camera from Canon. This one isn't exactly as consumer-level as the PowerShot A80, but their new 6.3 megapixel digital SLR camera, the EOS Digital Rebel (known as the EOS 300D everywhere else) is noteworthy for other reasons. It's basically a stripped down, inexpensive version of Canon's EOS 10D that's compatible with Canon's well-regarded line of autofocus EF lenses. At just $900 for the body (lenses are extra), this is just about the least costly digital SLR we've ever seen.
Making a purchase decision for a new camera is just as tough as making a decision on a new computer.

The technology changes so fast, as soon as you make a decision, something new comes out.

The Canon S400 looked good, until they came out with the SD100.

I snaked the drain!
Last night my wife yelled out from the bathroom, "The bathtub is talking!"

I yelled back, "What is it saying?"

She told me to come in to see.

When I got there, she ran the water in the bathroom sink, and the bathtub started gurgling.

I think it was trying to tell us that it was clogged.

After two treatments of Drano it was time for a break.

I decided to tackle this project in the morning.

This morning, I went down the celler and got a drain auger. This thing is probably 40 years old.

I snaked the drain from under the sink and the tub.

Note: When removing the pipe from under the sink, you loosen the connection closest to the wall in a clockwise direction, and when loosening the connection closest to you, you go counter-clockwise.

Weird huh?

To snake the tub, you have to put the snake in the tub, not in the drain, but behind stopper turner-on-and-offer.

See how much plumbing knowledge I have?

Next up I used a plunger to plunge the tub making sure I covered up the turner-on-and-offer hole with some paper towels.

After putting everthing back together the water runs free again!

Run free water, you're free!

My wife just came home and said there's water leaking out of some temporary pipes the city has layed down on our street.

I told here that I didn't cause that!

'Monk' refreshes.
Not since Peter Falk ( news ) put on his Columbo trench coat has an actor created a more fully formed, richly human, insanely lovable detective. Obsessive, compulsive, multiphobic Monk is an intuitive genius who can think through everything except his own fear of life. Shalhoub captures all the humor and poignancy the contrast makes possible.

Tonight, Monk is battling a serial killer and to the dismay of all involved his Asian dry cleaner, whose sewing skills are not to his liking. (It's a hilarious running joke, if not exactly an ethnically sensitive one.) As for Sharona (the invaluable Bitty Schram), she's busy courting the deputy mayor. As always on Monk , the case is hardly airtight, and that hardly matters. Watch the show for Shalhoub and Schram. If vaudeville still existed, they could be headliners.

The 1984 Apple Commercial: The Making of a Legend.
Many of the professional fashion models and actresses had difficulty spinning in place and then accurately throwing the sledgehammer as called for in the script. In fact, one errant sledgehammer toss almost killed an old lady walking down a path in Hyde Park where the casting call was being held. As luck would have it, one model, Anya Major, was also an experienced discus thrower and was hired to play the female lead because she looked the part and didn't get dizzy when spinning around preparing to hurl the hammer.

.mac iDisk: Error -47.
Error -47 usually means that your iDisk is already mounted in the Finder in Mac OS X. When this occurs, the Finder has gotten into a state where it does not recognize that the iDisk is mounted, but then finds that it cannot mount the iDisk because it is already mounted.

You can check this by choosing "Computer" from the Go menu. If your iDisk does not appear there, do the following:

Restart the system

Launch Terminal from /Applications/Utilities/

In Terminal, type the following commands:

cd /Volumes

ls



If you see an item in the window that matches your .Mac/iDisk username, type the following command:

sudo rm -r USERNAME


where USERNAME is the item that appears in the Terminal window. If you are prompted to enter a password, you will need to enter a Mac OS X Admin User password. You can verify that the item has been deleted by again typing:

ls


Once this has been done, quit Terminal, then restart the system again. You should then be able to mount your iDisk properly.
