I had downloaded Ardour 6.6 recently, and installed it onto both my Windows as well as my Linux partitions of my machine. Here’s a first mix job together with a bit of a bowed bass on a lovely template from Don, and with an awesome story from Shi:
As always, thanks to my friends from Wikiloops for all the fun – and thanks to you for listening 🙂
Got my first vaccination against the COVID-19 disease on Monday evening, with the AstraZeneca vaccine. Just like our chancellor and vice chancellor who both had the same as well.
Tuesday morning I felt nothing at all, no side effects – but that changed quite a bit during the day: first I felt cold and feverish a bit (didn’t measure anything tho), then I developed a real headache which also didn’t want to go away after taking an Aspirin 500, and around the evening there was also sickness involved, couldn’t really eat.
So I went to bed early, at around 9 or so, and slept through, dreaming some wild stuff, but next morning (Wednesday) I was back to normal again, and since then I’m more or less without any further symptoms.
Too early perhaps for a conclusion, but yesterday a friend from Paris reported almost the same – he wrote “i feel a bit like i’ve been trampled by a herd of buffalos this morning…”
My wife and a colleague of hers who both work in a Kindergarten had their dose a few weeks earlier, and just continued working, unlike their boss who suffered as she told me with a remark like: “Men…”
So let’s see. To feel sick and bad for half a day is still far better than catching that virus, that’s why I would recommend getting the jab to everyone who has the chance to, and is offered one of those.
We sometimes have other cats visiting us, and until recently Tuna was always showing them that they’re not welcomed around here. So those visits are rare, but some three or four different cats turn up once in a while.
This one is a bit shy (or still afraid of Tuna?), and usually gone as soon as we open the veranda door – so I took a zoom lens to take some photos through the closed door. Changed in post: set the camera’s white balance to “cloudy”, added a touch “clarity” and removed a touch of “haze”.
This one treads lightly:
As always, thanks for viewing and for reading.
P.S.: We have several cats visiting us as I mentioned above, and one day after this one came, a white one with grey patches (Zuleikha named her ‘Milka’ already) was here – and she even came in, and checked the whole flat. I’m sure that she could still smell traces of our Tuna, but no cat toilet, so the place seemed safe…
… and then there’s a tomcat whom Mitchie calls ‘George’, a tabby like Tuna, but he didn’t show up since a while, same as the Maine Coon one (one of two, we know the ‘owners’) which I had seen before sometimes.
Mouse population is growing with our chief mouser’s absence, so happy hunting to all neighbours’ cats…
On Saturday, March 13th, 2021 at 10:30am, our little furry friend of 11 years passed away.
Tuna (which was the name Zuleikha gave her) chose us as her family, not vice versa. She must have “belonged” to someone else before since she had a flea collar when in July of 2010 I took the first photo of her sitting on our fence like this:
About three months later she came in, ate, slept, and stayed pretty much forever. Until that Saturday 2 weeks ago.
I have countless photos and also some videos of her, some of which are in an album on Flickr, so go there if you want to see them. For here, and for now, I’ll only show you our “Easter Greeting” photo from last year:
And the one which is still my background wallpaper on this Debian Linux machine on which I’m currently typing this, and also the company’s work notebook which runs Red Hat Linux. It’s Tuna on a hot day on our veranda, taken with my 25mm lens wide open:
