    Thanks to Alexa, a lot of people now know that too.
    Still using Alexa though. The chances the government would want you for some reason seems slim if you're an average person who doesn't spew hate speech or have some 'agenda'.

    That's why I don't have all that Alexa and tweets and Blogs and facebook type stuff because of stuff like that and also that I have no need for such a thing. The only thing I need is email to keep in touch with my fellow therians. I really don't see a need for a A.I computer for doing stuff like turning on the lights or to use a washing machine. Then again, I am old fashion.

    Yeah, field biology. I was on a lesser prairie chicken translocation project this spring. Did a similar thing with sage-grouse last spring. I was just on for the trapping portion of the project. Some of the others on the crew will be doing some habitat monitoring and following the survival and locations of our birds via their radio collars.

    But I've moved to another project for the rest of the summer and am finding a few species of threatened/endangered birds and helping rope off their nesting sites and such. Later in the summer I'll be busy with some bat monitoring and continued plague management work as well.

    I finished my Master's thesis some years back and have since been working a variety of field jobs.

    My daily groan is that I've finally started having really vivid dreams again but most of them have been stressful!

    Having to do a bit of human adulting this year. Was unemployed in 2016 and mostly lived off my credit cards. Problem is when I got a job I didn't put sufficient focus on repaying the debt. Too many impulse purchases, movies and dining out. Resolved to cut way back on all of that this year to get things under control. I'm not in dire straits, just tired of seeing how much I'm paying in interest each month that could go toward more fun things.

    One of the cats has untreatable feline leukemia. She doesn't have long left, and because I'm a couple day's travel away and have work, I won't be able to see her before she dies.

    She's not young, but she's not our oldest... and I'd hoped to have more years with her.

    Getting old blows. Been a minute, but I've had some internal organs removed since I was here last and the weird weather in the mountains right now is making my ribs hurt and my wrists aren't doing great these days (after most a decade of writing code) either.

    Don't get old kids. Stay young forever.

    Really sorry for being so absent, everybody, especially as we're working on so much new stuff with Werelist.

    My beloved cockatiel died really suddenly and inexplicably despite her young age and our best efforts rushing her to an emergency vet. So I'm feeling pretty crappy right now. She was the best. The shock has worn off, and so I'm just feeling depressed and missing her terribly.

    I'm waiting on necropsy results. Hopefully it provides some information. The vets suspected that despite her youth and good diet, she may have had atherosclerosis.

    I'll let you all know what we find out.

    I'm sorry for your loss, Kisota. It's terribly difficult when a beloved pet dies.
