Mostly Gamez

Not much planned for today, so I went online looking for a device whose Time Has Come, a Z-wave to wi-fi bridge. Found one called Wink which was a reasonable price (<$50) at Home Depot, drove there, brought it home and set it up. It will be going back for a refund because it doesn't recognize my Z-wave devices, and it uses Wink's server instead of staying local, which is a huge security risk, and there is the danger that they will switch from free to subscription. The Z-wave section took some sleuthing to find, and it is lame.

Unfortunately all the other bridges are in the > $200 range.

Lots of football on TV, unfortunately Seahawks game was not offered here, instead we got Detroit/New England and some Ohio/somewhere else which makes no sense to be showing in this market.

Watched the 49ers luck out and fail to lose against Washington. True to form, they scored first and then went into hibernation.

Spook has a new game. She gets between the recliner and the side table, and attacks the sleeve of my shirt with both paws, like it's a boxing punching ball. I am not amused. She has sharp claws.   

Met Janice for coffee in MV, she gave me a knife from her Vietnam trip. It looks like a twin bladed all purpose veggie knife, even includes a can opener. Very strange looking thing, maybe I'll hang it on the kitchen wall.

Back home, caught the last 4 minutes of the NY Giants giving the game away to the Cowboyz. There was a spectacular catch earlier in the game by a Giants player, which would have earned him an MVP award had they won.

Watching the entertainment channels, what is with this witch hunt against Bill Cosby? Monkey See women coming out of the woodwork to accuse him of things 30 years later? Ridiculous.

Plans for tomorrow:
MNF ought to be a good game. Now that I have my lab signal restored I might be able to catch the Jets/Bills game. 4 pm my time.
