Not Quite Kindle / 'da Cat is back !!

‘da Cat is back !!

…..extreme apologies and sincere Thank You’s to all who were concerned…I will answer each of your PM’s individually.  The speculation on the “Missing Cat” thread gave me lots of giggles.  Guess the UFO theory was the closest !  Ha !

In “real life” NapCat is a geologist...the nature of the business involves wandering in remote desert areas...

...with gold now at a staggering price, exciting things are happening in the Nevada Mining industry and I had the opportunity to visit some remote areas where mines are reopening.  Panamint Valley, CA is where I spent several days/nights this week.  Needless to say, “unplugged”.

As soon as I catch up on my “napcatcatnappin’ I look forward to reading all the latest KB news.

Again, thanks for the concern


Not Quite Kindle / Pound-A-Week Club

The Lose-a-Pound-a-Week Club

I have promised my doctor (and myself) that I would lose 50 pounds over the next year……one pound a week should be very doable.

Please join me in this “Lighthearted” approach is to take “baby steps” to change my habits.  No specific diet or extreme regime… just move to healthier eating and exercise, by making a lifestyle change each week.


A Pound a Week should be (pun) a piece of cake !!...remember, if you are currently eating a dozen cheesecakes a week, if you ONLY eat 6, you are going to lose a pound !  Ha !

Cover / Case reviews / M-Edge Latitude

I picked up a black M-Edge Latitude Jacket for my K-3.

~The zippered Kevlar-like cover is perfect for my lifestyle, as my Kindle will frequently be living in a backpack full of geological implements of destruction (notebooks, hand lens, calculator, flashlight, tape measure, dust, sand, rocks and a rock pick !)

~There is a zippered outside pocket on the front, which is handy for small items when traveling and an unzippered pocket in the back...perfect for that airline ticket.

~I really like the molded mounting system and mine fit snug without being over pressured.

~The cover is quite masculine in appearance (as opposed to some which look like a woman's clutch purse).

~Reasonable price and fast delivery.

Introductions & Welcomes / New Nevada Kindler
« on: January 22, 2011, 08:23:48 am »
One of my first memories is standing on a kitchen chair, turning the pages of a book and asking my mother; "When can I learn to read?"  Even then, I was eagerly awaiting the knowledge and adventure that books hold.

Today I am looking at my new (and empty) Kindle with that same anticipation !


I am a consulting geologist living on a small "Hobby Ranch" next to the Nevada/California border (Nevada side) near Death Valley.  Geo-heaven !!  I am currently living the envious lifestyle of semi retirement.  I travel to work for a couple of months on exciting projects, then return home to "play with my toys" while waiting for the next job......

"Lighthouse Ranch"

         Primary crop:          Iris
         Primary livestock:    Calico Cats
         Primary activity:      Nappin'

Interests range from Flying/Sailing to Gardening/Photography/Model Railroading.  And I have a side business restoring pianos.....of course, I am an avid reader.

What a delightful community this is.....I look forward to being an active member.

Walter (aka 'da NapCat)
