Sounds fun Dave! Good luck out there!

Sunny, a bit more humid, 71F / 22C, heading to the mid 80's.

Heading to the Delaware State Fair this evening to take in the Keith Urban concert. Surprising the quality of the talent that comes to our fair each year! Lady A concert on Saturday!

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

It's going to be a hot one today. Heading for a high in the mid 90's. This is the first Tuesday this summer I'll be able to play golf with the morning "league" so it should be a fun morning.

A mostly sunny start to the work week here on the Delmarva -- 68F / 20C, heading to the low 80's with the humidity still in an OK range.

HVAC company called at 07:30 this morning, and a tech will be here this afternoon between 14:00 and 16:00 to see why our A/C is not blowing cold air. Hopefully an easy fix.

Steady work day ahead, but nothing out of the range of unusual.

Have a good work week gents!

A hazy and humid morning. Starting off in the mid-60s and heading into the 90s. A decent day to ride my bike to work but I had better get an early start before it warms up too much. The fitness center on campus is shut down until mid-August so no showers at work for after my ride in. I did get a temporary membership at the local fitness club for racquetball and to use the fitness equipment.

Overcast and 74F / 23C, heading to the upper 70's with maybe a break in the clouds later.

Very thankful the temps are just in the 70's. Our central air stopped putting out cold air late on Friday so I installed a window A/C in our bedroom for sleeping and the windows in the rest of the house are wide open and lots of fans blowing. Hopefully our HVAC company will be out tomorrow (they could have come out Friday night but at the $150/hour rate, we opted for Monday and their weekday $100/rate.

Just got back from breakfast and a trip to Sam's Club. Heading out to mow then after that need to run back out to our local pet store to get some treats to celebrate our male greyhound Tomas' 4th anniversary of his "gotcha" (adoption) day, which is tomorrow (4 years). Also need to return a pair of running socks to Kohls that are not the kind I like (too low).

Have a great Sunday gents!

Another nice day today but starting to warm up again. Heading for the mid 80s with hazy skies. I should mow the lawn today to avoid temps near 90 tomorrow.

Sun is about 20 minutes from rising, 67F / 19C, heading to the low 80's with more clouds but still decent humidity and a nice temp for July. Big 10K race at 08:00 this morning -- why else would I be up at 05:00 on a Saturday?

Our central air unit decided to stop pumping cold air into the house later yesterday afternoon, so rather than incurring overtime rates from our HVAC company, I pulled out the window A/C from our attic and installed it in our bedroom window, as DW really likes it cool at night in there. With temps staying pretty decent this weekend, we can survive until Monday and regular rates.

Have a great Saturday gents!

Another very pleasant day. 63 right now and heading to the upper 70's. Looks like a warming trend is on its way and we'll be back in the 90s next week. A few meetings this morning and then my workshop this afternoon. I've got a game of racquetball scheduled for after work.

Sunny and 68F / 20C, heading to the mid 80's here on the Delmarva with low humidity. Overnight low dropped to 60F! Not too shabby for mid July!

Fairly quiet work day, at lunchtime I'll be heading to my local bowling alley for practice, as the 2014/15 season starts in just a month. Not sure what our plans are for this evening.

TGIF gents!

Beautiful sunny day here on the Delmarva -- 74F / 23C, heading to the low 80's, low humidity, just an ideal day. WINDOWS ARE OPEN! (At least until DW gets home!).

Busy day already -- had to move the washing machine out so my plumber could inspect the cold water shutoff for a possible leak. Turns out it was overflow from the discharge valve. So he did a nice job of cleaning and prepping the area. I'll finish it up with a wire brush then a coat of Rustoleum. Also need to find a discharge hose that'll go deeper into the drain. Work of course is busy too...

Have a great Thursday gents!

Yet another ideal day today. Sunny and cool to start and heading for the mid 70s for a high. No need for the car today so I get to ride my bike to work again!. Great to be back to a normal routine.

Welcome back Ken and Jack. Whenever I go through spells of not tracking I easily start to misjudge what I'm eating. The support here makes it easy to get back on track though.

Ken for some folks, they can get away with not tracking. I am not in that group. I'm so much more aware of what I eat than I used to be but I find tracking keeps me in line. Plus, I like chatting with everyone on SP!

In any case welcome back and happy tracking!

Big surprise this AM - scales showed me just a hair below my 5 pound "maintenance? range. Lowest weight I've seen since I started paying attention some years ago. I feel fine and credit La Puma's "Refuel" approach, though I really can't endorse everything he has to say.

Overcast and 73F / 23C, heading to the low 80's with skies clearing later today. Did not get as much rain as forecasted, but over an inch so that will keep my grass green and the farmers happy!

Just a couple of meetings today, though one is with my manager (bi-monthly 1 on 1) and it may be a little awkward -- he was unhappy with a note I sent out yesterday that copied some folks instrumental to fixing a sales problem (there obviously is some history here!), and the fact that I am less than a month from moving to my new position. After the issue with the note yesterday, I feel that much more assured that I am making the right move!

Last training run today before my 10K on Saturday. 7 x 400 speed training. I think I can handle that after the 16 I did last Thursday and the 8 mile run on Saturday! Right knee pain has flared back up, so this will be good to have a few days off before Saturday.

This evening: dinner with FIL/MIL -- celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary! AMAZING!

Happy hump day gents!

Another ideal day today. Clear blue skies and temps in the low 60s to start out and heading for a high in the upper 70s. I would love to ride my bike to work again but today I have to present in our workshop for teachers this afternoon and need to pick up a lot of supplies. I've got a racquetball game scheduled for 8 am though so I had better hurry.

Can't wait for the cooler air you have Dave to arrive here! At 08:00, 78F / 26C, dew point at a stifling 78F as well, heading to the upper 80's with heavy rain in the forecast for later today. It's like a steam bath out there!

Steady work day ahead, strength training at the Y at lunchtime, tonight will likely be a leftovers dinner night at home, especially with the strong storms coming through, plus we are taking FIL/MIL out for dinner tomorrow night at a very nice but pricey restaurant. It's all good though -- they are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on Thursday!!

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

A nearly perfect day. Bright sunny skies and a temp of 60 to start the day and heading to the mid 70s. A good day to ride my bike to work. After 2 months on the road it will be great to get back on my bike.

Hot and sticky after a quarter inch of rain yesterday and a forecast high in the upper 80s.

Great match yesterday and even better outcome.

Outstanding WC tournament, and congrats to Germany!!

Cloudy, 76F / 24C, REALLY humid, heading to 90F with strong storms.

Busy day ahead...up at 05:30 for morning yoga, walk the dogs, then off to see my beautician to get my goatee darkened! Work of course, and plan to combine a short run (20 minutes according to my Galloway training schedule) and mowing the fenced in part of my yard (which includes doggie duty!) at lunchtime.

Have a good work week gents!

Heading out to do some yardwork and mowing. Plan to be back in time for the WC match. Cheering for the Germans!

Have a great Sunday gents!

Another hot day ahead before a cooling trend starts to kick in. Temps today in the low 90s. Got the lawn mowed early before it got too hot.

Getting ready for the World Cup final. I'm worried about Messi having a big game but I've got my lucky Germany shirt on and ready to go!

Got near 90 today. Hot in the house, but early in the afternoon I baked Lebanese spinach pies. Came out quite good. This will be three meals for my wife and I. You serve them with yogurt. Glenn

83F / 28C midafternoon temps, with the dew point at 68F, so it's a bit humid, but not as bad as it will get the next few days.

Recovering from my longest run ever -- 8 miles! It was my week to do house cleaning, so got that done before I went on my run. Not sure what else I'll do today, except watch the Dutch / Brazil soccer match and shower!

Have a great Saturday gents!

It's good to be home and back to my routine. A beautiful but hot day ahead. Already 80 degrees before 9 am and heading to the mid 90's. I'll probably wait until tomorrow to mow the lawn.
