Boyle Back Yard

Sunday, August 07, 2011

I just had a blog all finished, spell checked etc. Posted it, and it said "done” for a long time but nothing happened. I’m writing this on Word, and will copy and paste just in case from now on.

Boyle’s Back Yard is just across the street for the ex Billy K’s, which closed last Friday because the owner raised the rent dramatically on the third business which had been there – which explains why the character keeps changing. The owner plans to open his own business there, and everyone plans to boycott the place from now on. You have the pizza place and Boyle's both selling beer on two other corners, and various bar foods at Boyle’s.

Boyle had agreed to let us have the Inaugural Cornhole Classic there (a double elimination corn toss tournament for 64 teams) in September, so the Kiwanians have to patronize it some. Our hope is that the tournament will be a successful, growing event, either once or twice a year. If it’s annual, Tom hopes to make it a qualifying event for the national champion event.

PS - I just found out the apparently the apostrophe in the title (Boyle's) is what keeps the thing from posting. I lost the first one, but held on to the Word version until I could see it posted.

    Third times the charm. Spark does strange things sometimes. But I have learned and most times have my blog on word in case I lose it.
We almost stopped at Boyle's on friday for lunch but it looked like all outside seating. It looked like it might be a good lunch place. We went up the corner to Magnolia Grill.

Boyle's Back Yard

Sunday, August 07, 2011

For any locals, Boyle's Back Yard it at 11th and Nebraska. The place across the street (Billy Kay's) closed last Friday because the owner raised the rent on the third tenant, which sort of explains why the business and character kept changing. The owner wants to open his own business there, and everyone claims to be planning to boycott it the next time.

Boyle's used to be a mexican joint, but disappeared for some reason. They have standard prices, TV's, and a lot of noise. It's also an outside joint (at least the part we were in) including the bar, and has a roof so you have shade and a breeze. If they would turn the TV's off (or the sound off) it would be a fine place.

Boyle has given us permission to have the Inaugural NoPiKi Cornhole Classic (a corn toss tournament for 64 teams) there in September, so the Kiwanians have to patronize the place a little.

    Noisy establishments are such a turn-off.

Easy Day

Saturday, August 06, 2011

I put NTI Shadow back in the notebook today, and it's fine, but the desktop was stubborn. Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) claim I'm not protected, so I tried to do a short scan, but it took off on a complete system scan. AVG is perfectly happy, so I guess MSE is more picky.

the BW wanted a hamburger tonight so we went to Boyle's Back Yard. I had a vaegiburger and a couple of beers, she had a hamburger and a couple of O'Douls. I'm not sure who was the more sinful.

We found 59 shows of the Midsomer Murders, which the BW loves, so I have to go watch the fifth one now. They last an hour and 42 or 43 minutes, so one takes care of the evening.

    I think the veggie burger probably came in less calories. You only had one beer. But what the heck , it wasn't bad. We got have some pleasures.
I had a cup of sorbetto today. Blood Orange flavor, took me right back to Italy. It's not something I do everyday.
Besides I hiked today besides my water aerobics and I burned almost 2800 calories.
Tomorrow I am going on a longer hike.
Right now soaking my feet. Smile!!
Take care

    My counts looked pretty good until dinner. We decided we just had to have tacos. Between that and the Mexi Fries I was 15 g over my top fat allowance. It was definitely sinful and definitely yummy. I hope you enjoyed your indulgence as much as I enjoyed mine.

Recount

Friday, August 05, 2011

Yesterday I uninstalled the NTI Shadow from the laptop, and it did seem to make a difference. Today it was terribly slow on the desktop when I was on Sparks, but just fine for everything else, so I left this one alone. Now Sparks is pretty much back to normal, so I guess I'll put NTI Shadow back to the laptop.

Now I need to get the BW to use the laptop to keep it from being a total waste. I just wish I hadn't sold the old laptop, but we learn by doing.

    Glad things are working out. Congrats on the weight loss!

BTW, what's "BW"? I am guessing the W stands for wife, but I can't for the life of me figure out the B part of the equation!

I lost another pound, too!!! YAY US!!!! emoticon

    I usually inherit my computers from WH. The problem is that I am so uncomfortable with the technology that he spends a lot of time with advise and problem solving. I guess it's still a useful tool, but it's also a chronic headache for me and for him.
