I was looking forward getting down to CPAC at least for Saturday this year, but I’ve got a massive cold and haven’t slept well for the past couple of nights. I going spend the day resting instead.
The contracting task I was working on last year was over at the end of August. I had some time off coming, and I took it. And then I decided to retire. (I was about to turn 68.) A colleague who runs a small consulting firm with contracts at Goddard has asked me to join his firm, and I’ve said, “Yes.” I’m starting this morning with the job title of Chief Engineer.
There’s 15 inches of global warming in the front yard here at Stately Hoge Manor.
UPDATE—Mmmmmmm. Kona coffee.
I received this email on Thursday evening.

Subject: An Explanation?
Date: January 14, 2016 at 9:26:59 PM CST
I’m wondering if you would oblige me with an explanation. This blank file is saved in your SCRIBD account. I have two questions which are in vital need of an answer from you.
[embedded images reproduced below]
1. Are you concerned about my mental well-being, or is this just another example of harassment from you?
2. Was this form filled out and mailed, or did you just leave it in your SCRIBD folder for shits and grins?
Given that I am the only person you know that lives in Wisconsin, at the moment, I am taking this as a serious threat that requires a serious response on my part. So, I am hoping you will take a moment to oblige me with an answer explaining the presence of this form on your SCRIBD account. If it has been filled in and sent to anyone, please let me know. If it has not been filled out and sent to anyone, then no harm no foul. But I need to know, sir, and I need to know very soon.
