I Dig Dinosaur Neil
I’ve been updating the site & installing some useful applications to make my life a bit easier. I wish it were easier to get dropbox installed on my hosted site, but apparently the VM I’m on is pretty stripped. I set up a new image gallery at http://loux.org/gallery where I can post pictures of various people and things.
Surfing through iTunes Music store I found season 1 of “The Tick” live action series and bought it. I laughed so hard I cried while Hal thought I’d lost my mind. Then I found all three seasons of the animated series on Youtube and watched them all one-after-another. I really hope they end up for sale on Amazon or iTunes so I can watch them any time I want. Right after I watched S1E2, “The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil”, I went out to CafePress and bought a “I Dig Dinosaur Neil” t-shirt. :)
The roof on the house got redone last week and the yard work is going to start Monday, where we finally get the excavation done, the ElDorado driveway, and the northwest lot paved in. Maybe by autumn we’ll be able to get the rear driveway done. Today we cut out the two little desert shrubs that were growing in front of the windows on the north side of the house. I realized a bit ago that they weren’t intentionally planted in those places and were actually in a spot that was potentially detrimental to the property plumbing. They needed to go so they’re gone now.
My friends Shay & Kellie’s little dog Gracey is going to come stay with us for a week later this month. She’s such a fun little friend to have around, she makes me want my own little doggie. Unfortunately, four cats are more than enough for this household.
Also, got a new Capresso coffee bean grinder last week. (I’ll explain why in a later post) The Capresso has an interesting sound when it runs and, is actually much quieter than my last grinder. I’ve kept myself true to the “No more than two-pots-a-day” rule for the last few years so I try to make sure I get to enjoy every drop.
