    "BBBBEEEEEPPPPP! Low Battery!"

    THAT was the sound that came from the smoke detectors this morning at 2am. Apparently when the Base FD changed out the batteries, the shelf life of the "new" ones was not quite so good. AND we had to call them in to help change them because some DUMB@SS hardwired the one above the stairs so that unless you are in excess of 6 feet tall or have a scaffold ladder, you can't reach the plug and hold on to the detector at the same time. Its been a long morning already!

    It would appear that Bull has taken on Capt's load.

    In the mean time...

    I leave you alone for a few days and what happens, you all run amok!

    This should give you something to play with. Should help you get those seven women off your minds.

    If the link does not work, go to the homepage of the nytimes. There is an article on Watson, IBM's new computer. There is also a little Trivia game for you to match your brain against Watson's. Click on the you vs watson and it will take yu to the game.

    I got 32 points. A couple wrong was actually correct. Watson isn't that bright.

    And to the front I go.
    I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.

    Not a Cat Story, this time:

    Baby porcupine melting hearts after RCMP rescue

    Canwest News Service June 17, 2010 3:02 AM

    He was born in less than auspicious circumstances -- his life saved by an RCMP officer who, in the middle of the night, cut him loose from his umbilical cord after his mother was killed on a rural highway.

    One-month-old Charlie the porcupine has recovered well from his miraculous birth and is now melting hearts at the Medicine River Wildlife Centre in Spruce View, Alta., where he lives.

    He almost didn't make it. His survival comes thanks to RCMP Const. Charles Lambright, who struck and killed the little porcupine's mother after he was faced with a set of oncoming headlights toward the end of his shift near Rimbey, Alta., a month ago.

    As Lambright dragged the porcupine carcass off the road, he noticed something moving. That's when he discovered little Charlie, still alive, but connected to his mother by the umbilical cord.

    "I just wanted him to live," Lambright said this week.

    Cutting the little guy loose, the officer wrapped him in a towel and placed the porcupine on the floor of his cruiser while he finished his shift.

    For 24 hours, Lambright and his wife cared for Charlie at their home as they searched for an organization to take him. That's when they found the wildlife centre.

    "After a while, doing a job like this, you pull for whatever you can do," Lambright said, explaining why he saved and cared for the porcupine.

    Lambright called the little critter Highway 20 after the route he was born on. But staff at the wildlife centre named him after the Mountie who saved him, hence Charlie.

    These days, Charlie is being weaned off formula and is eating carrots, squash and apples. He has taken quite a liking to a stuffed teddy bear, spending much of his day snuggling with the toy.

    "He is just a show-stopper," said Carol Kelly, the executive director of the centre.

    After he was brought to the centre, the porcupine was placed in an incubator and is now doing well, according to Kelly.

    Given the porcupine never saw his mother, he has bonded with humans, making him an ideal candidate to appear at schools to teach children about wildlife, Kelly said.

    I finished the book I was reading The Fires. One interesting bit of trivia I learned was that in 1970, the New York Plaza fire, elevators were being called to the 33rd floor. No one knew what was going on and if people were trapped or not on that floor. The investgation afterward found that the flames were responsible for calling three elevators to th 33rd floor. It appears that the lastest "gimmick" was to use elevator call buttons that were heat sensitive so they could detect heat from a person's finger. One has to wonder why someone would spend their time and brain matter to develop something like this and even more, why city planners would even let something like this in a building code.


    The book was an interesting look at the FDNY and NYC in the 1970's and how computer modeling formulas designed by the RAND Corporation were used by the powers that be in NYC.
