Fall has arrived, and we are facing the prospect of winter. But, we can never stop dreaming about the perfect day. It is our curse, here at Life Explained, OH Office (LEHO). Of course at our Northeast Office (LENO) they have a different vision of the perfect day, any day from September to May that you don't have to shovel snow (for more than an 45 minutes) is pretty nice.
To create the perfect day we enlisted the help of our the Life Explained TerraForming Division. Space Agencies around the world are furious, they are working on a system to make distant planets hospitable, even delightful, why bother flying all the way to Mars if it isn't wonderful, after all.
Bob, the Lead Scientist, thought he had a perfect day dialed up. Sunny, warm and dry, with a light north breeze to keep things cool, and drive down the humidity that has been hovering over the area lately.
We were thrilled, we bought shorts and t-shirts, charcoal grills, steaks, brats, burgers, and Mahi-Mahi, frisbees and flip flops to work. Everybody was ready for one last summer day, we had a pitcher of Sangria and a cooler filled with bottled water, beer and soft drinks.
When dawn came over the area rain clouds stormed in from the south, and opened the valve, releasing a light, almost pleasant drizzle over the whole area, and our doppler radar showed a parade of clouds passing over the entire area for the whole day.
Everybody was furious. Even though the rain was pleasant and cool, it ruined the sand volleyball tournament we had planned. Some associates actually dug up some pitchforks and torches (a complete shock) and were headed towards Bob's office. Things were looking bleak.
But, this picture came through email to the whole company, and things started to make sense. We were so close. Maybe next time, Bob.

A nice day, somewhere.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
