These past couple of weeks because it has RAINED (or sprinkled or showered) almost daily. Wasnâ€™t too bad; it was so dry around here that it took almost the whole two weeks before the ground finally got saturated enough for some excess to run off into our â€œculvertâ€ (really just a hole in the ground with pipes leading across my backyard to the ditch) at the back of the property.
We really needed it, but: DAMN! Itâ€™s wet out there!!!
And now, thanks to â€œDaylight Savingsâ€ itâ€™s getting dark at 1630 or so. So, itâ€™s cool, wet & dark out at just the time when Iâ€™d rather be outside doing something.
But donâ€™t get me started.
Been â€œplayingâ€ with the Piwigo Gallery program both locally and on my gallery site. Itâ€™s interesting and much better than the old Gallery3 program I used to use. Lots of themes and plug-ins to do different things. Been fun but takes a lot of time to transfer files and then go through and set it up.
Of course, youâ€™ve noticed that I killed my â€œregularâ€ site and installed this blog as the default. It does save a lot of time and effort to work on only the one site instead of two. Guess you could say I cut my work in half.
Speaking of work: Still no luck for me or SWMBO getting a job. Sheâ€™s in a better position than I and will be starting some training tomorrow to do coding work at home for a couple of months. Good for her!
Really not much else going on around here. Really. Too damp to get outside much.
Oh, our son (Brian) is living in the RV; for now. Weâ€™ll be moving him to the basement later today and tomorrow. It would just be easier and cheaper if he stayed down there instead of the RV. At least he wonâ€™t have to re-fill the propane tank every couple of weeks. Not to mention the different â€œtanks”!â€
Havenâ€™t been talking on the radio much except for the regularly scheduled Nets on Sundayâ€™s, Tuesdayâ€™s and Wednesdays. Had the regularly scheduled meeting for NMARES last month and only one other person showed up. I think itâ€™s about time to bury the cadaver of the club.
Letâ€™s see: Oh, lost all those cdâ€™s I re-ripped and a bunch of other stuff when the drive I was using to transfer things went TU (big time!!). Posted a video of it on YouTube. Iâ€™d never heard a drive make that kind of noise before. I opened it up and tried running it but the platters just donâ€™t want to spin at all. Otherwise I could probably save some of the information on it. Iâ€™m still not sure of what else I lost but will find out as I go looking for it. Ah well. What are ya gonna do?
SWMBO made Chied Fricken, mashed & veggies for dinner tonight. Was Good!
