We went from a rather hot day yesterday to rainy and cool all day today. Had a bunch of branches fall off of the tree in the back. Still better off than the retired nurse across the back alley. She had 2 pine trees in the back and due to the gro... Read more

Well I know we can't live forever (in our mortal bodies) as a kid I used to think some people would live for ever - like my Grandpa Atkinson (my Mom's Dad - who she claims I was named after - although my Dad's Grandpa had the same name ALSO) who... Read more

Kind of left the machine alone last night and probably tonight - oddly enough it works fine on delicate cycle. Can't off the top of my head figure out (reminded me of years ago when I first hired on at CNCP Telecommunications - rode with a guy w... Read more

After all of that it would appear that 64 dollars later it didn't appear to be that even though the old on seemed to be bad (I DID check it - I know how to drive a digital multimeter several expensive pieces of paper attest to that). It still sp... Read more

Ended up being cajoled into going to Sunday Brunch at the home my Mom moved into as she was having difficulty looking after her house. I thought it was rather expensive and not really all that great. Mind you I got to visit with a nephew and his... Read more
