Blind to a Concept

Saturday, March 26, 2011      4 comments

Psychiatrists determined that if you don't have a concept or know of a phenomenon, you are blind to it. An example of that would be learning a new word that you had never heard before, and then typically seeing or hearing the new word several t... Read more

Permanent (?) Records

Friday, March 25, 2011      4 comments

We watched a series on Masterpiece Theater recently called "Any Human Heart. It tracked a man from before WWI to his death at the age of about 85, which seems young to me but was probably pretty good for the way he lived. One theme that kept ... Read more

Before and After Concrete

Thursday, March 24, 2011      7 comments

I spent another two hours and 20 minutes today with the pressure sprayer and finished the concrete in front. The first day I did five sections of sidewalk, the second day I did three sections of sidewalk and the lower part of the driveway, and ... Read more

Honey Bees, After, and Before

Wednesday, March 23, 2011      4 comments

Monday I mowed the lawn and dug out a bucket of weeds, both before and after the mowing. Tuesday I spent three hours with the pressure sprayer and cleaned off five sections of the sidewalk and did a few other things I can't remember. Today I s... Read more

Snacking Sunday

Sunday, March 20, 2011      5 comments

The fence does look new, and I dug weeds for a half hour and mowed both the front and back lawns today. The grape trellis took a little more effort, but I'll get used to it. Now that we have a new toy, I realize that Rob (neighbor to the west)... Read more

Short Day

Saturday, March 19, 2011      4 comments

I got up a little late this morning and did a few chores before starting on the fence again. each 8 foot sections has 32 pickets and 32 edges - the pickets overlap. With three two by fours holding the thing together you have four separate part... Read more

Finally Opened the Box

Friday, March 18, 2011      6 comments

I saw my cardiologist yesterday, and he said to just keep taking the Atenolol and I would live forever, which was a relief. I was afraid that he was going to want to do another catherization. Then I weighed in in leeway. Today I finally g... Read more

Not Like Christmas in the Old Days

Wednesday, March 16, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday we did a lot of things, but the big one was to make three forays into Home Depot to buy mulch, plants fertilizer, weed N feed, and a pressure sprayer. The clerk convinced me that the cheap one was a bad choice, so I got the best one w... Read more

Bad Eyes

Monday, March 14, 2011      5 comments

One of the joys of lasting a long time is that various body parts start to work erratically. My latest problem is with the eyes. I seem to be allergic to oak pollen, and it affects my eyes more than the rest of my head. I was never allergic t... Read more

Quiet Sunday

Sunday, March 13, 2011      4 comments

Today I reset a whole lot of clocks, read the Sunday paper (especially the comics and Comp USA ad), and washed the inside of the refrigerator while waiting for the BW, who was going to do it. I just started, and by the time she came back it was... Read more

New Toilet Seat

Saturday, March 12, 2011      4 comments

I rolled out at 6:00 this morning and made it to downtown Palm Harbor before anyone else, but Dan drove past me, looking for the trailer which wasn't there just as I got out of my car. I waved my arms in his rear view mirror to stop him. ... Read more

This and That

Friday, March 11, 2011      3 comments

Wednesday I went down to the Chamber of Commerce to find out where and when the Citrus Festival signs would be ready for the Kiwanis to put up. The first thing I had to do was wait a half hour until someone could talk to me, then wait another 1... Read more

Dog Story

Wednesday, March 09, 2011      10 comments

We had Shepherds for 30 years - went through five of them. I gave the first one away after a couple of years, and neither he nor our first bitch was a good example of the breed standard even though the bitch did win a puppy show. That got us o... Read more

Past Chores

Monday, March 07, 2011      6 comments

The mirror frame hides the bottom edge where the silver has flaked off on the bottom fourth to half an inch, but the glass is so thick that you can see the back of the frame in the mirror. I guess you can't have everything. There is another mi... Read more

Forgot to take One Picture

Sunday, March 06, 2011      5 comments

Today was partly sunny but had a lot of cloud cover, and is overcast now. I took some pictures, but it was hard because when the sun is shining and behind me, I can't see what the camera is going to capture. The Meyer lemon tree is completely ... Read more
