18 October 2010 Belgian movement from her head to her shoes

It’s a complement of the highest order couched in the language of the blues and the technology of the turn of the 20th century. If you need help, look for information on firearms manufacturing and other machine work. Belgium was noted for work so fine that a rifle bolt might look like polished jewelry.

Other such complements originate in the kitchen. Blues singers welcome biscuits over cornbread. But blues singers, being blues singers, will settle for any kitchen product that appears on their plate. That habit, alone, is one reason they are then heard to be singing their particular verses of “the blues.”

One very minor cause for annoyance showed up on the Window media player. Pieces of music show up as multiple copies of the same piece. I’m not sure what the cause is or how to prevent it. Manually deleting the duplicates from the library of music resulted in missing albums, missing tracks, missing songs I’ve had around on my hard drives for years.

The positive side of “back-ups” is proven today as I rebuild my musical files on the current hard drive. However, the problem of duplicates is somehow returned with the backup. Opening the source files reveals only one copy of each music track. The problem is somehow related to Win 7 and Win Media Player 12. For the moment, I’ll live with it.

A bright sunny day occupied with things medical and pharmacologic. Provisions purchased and transported to re-stock the pantry and freezer. Haircuts for us both, about 90 minutes wait time. We used part of that for re- provisioning. Breakfast out was a nice feature of the morning. Eggs, sausage, hash-browns, and biscuits with sausage gravy. It’s been about a year since I had the last. I never fix it at home. I’d have actually preferred “red-eye” gravy but that wasn’t on the menu. Again, something I don’t fix at home.

Back to the study of modern warfare. Seems to be much like warfare before the industrialization of the battlefield. 
At some point in the war, Germans will move through Belgium.
