1, Kerry Park 凯利公园

 

我呼吸过的最新鲜的空气,是去年秋冬季节,从萨克拉门托,去往雷诺的路上。

进入山区,纷纷扬扬的鹅毛大雪,落在路边高耸的松树和杉树上。同行的美国人,也都纷纷掏出手机,拍摄难得一见的雪景。雪景不新鲜,新鲜的是,适当温度和湿度下,湿湿漉漉的雪片先挂在树上,聚集多了,很快,树枝承受不住沉甸甸的湿雪,哗啦啦,又一大堆雪片悠然坠落。

 

自今年4月底至今,控制饮食,特别是控制吃鸡蛋的效果还不错。

8月1日的检测结果为(括号中为2月18日检测值):
总胆固醇 4.18  (原值5.61>正常值上限5.20)

 


前几天,收到加州Lake County的旅游宣传册,人家花了5.65美元寄到北京。美国各地的旅游宣传品,都是花花绿绿,湖光山色,很是养眼。

其中的一张图片,是关于一个安德森州立历史公园的,Anderson March State Historic Park,我一看,一棵巨大的枯木树干,上面密密麻麻地都是小窟窿,一看图说,是橡子啄木鸟(Acorn Woodpecker)为了过冬存放橡子打造的树干粮仓,而且,利用的都是枯树。当然,据说也利用了不少建筑物缝隙,电线杆之类的。

 

今晚看了《亲切的金子》,主办方是这样忽悠大家的:

今晚7点将为大家奉献朴赞誉“复仇三部曲”之《亲切的金子》,李英爱颠覆“大长今”的博命式出演给人留下深刻印象。朴赞誉以擅长深入剖析人性之黑暗面而闻名,他的《老男孩》《蝙蝠》《看见恶魔》华丽而阴险,让人心底颤抖而欲罢不能。在此敬告:有高血压、心脑血管病隐患者请尽量不要入场观摩,谢谢。

 

This year my wife and I switched our internet cable service provider from Gehua to China Unicom. Both of them are bad. Why? Here is what we experienced.

When we were using Gehua, the internet connection was often off. When we called them, they always told us they would report problem and let technician contact us and fix problem. They did not refund at all, or prolong the service for free. No way to get that. One thing happened last year, or the year before last year, the whole community here could not connect to the internet, for several days. I believe a lot of people in our community called them again and again, and finally, they reluctantly gave us one month for free.

6+6

一周之内,嘁哩喀喳,折腾了6个人的美国签证,6个人的加拿大签证。

外加接待两拨亲戚来访。早晨4点多就起床,去火车站接站,结果火车晚点整整三个小时,只能等着。困得我只好躺倒在吉野家的长椅上睡觉,后来进站后,又躺倒在站台的长椅上睡觉。
