About Stan King

Still just an old guy trying new things. KF7LTT. Retired HM/USN

Saturday. Not In The Park.

f28697e4-800b-4743-82c0-78908a42d9b3Just not a lot going on. SWMBO and I got out of the house yesterday and wound up having “date day” a day early. Which is okay with me. Thing is, being retired and all, we could do date day again today if we wanted. She’s worth it.

Started “redeeming” the electronic copies of all the movies I’ve bought over the past few years. Phew! Just typing in the URL’s is time consuming. Then there are those places (Paramount?) that require you to sign up for their newsletters and special offers. But, luckily, president&ceo @ paramount.com seems to work just fine. (I hate being forced to sign up for something.) So far I have 40 movies on Vudu with a stack of about 50 to go. Hopefully I can put those on Vudu also.

Otherwise, SSDD. Chili Dogs for dinner. Tried out my “air fryer” and it seemed to work okay. Accidently just baked the “fries” for awhile but that seemed to work out.


Ok. Testing From Windows & Open Live Writer

tz14_thumbCause I can’t get it (Open Live Writer) to work in Linux. Did I change my passwords?

Date Day went great! SWMBO took me to breakfast at FPH cause she’s going to help some folks learn stuff at the genealogy library from 1300-1700 (or so). We still managed to spend way too much at Walmart getting things for the new RV.

Which we got yesterday. The Rv; not the stuff at Walmart. We left the house at 0700 and I expected it to take forever for us to get to the dealer. But, traffic moved right along and we had time to stop for breakfast before our appointment.

No problem with the trade-in. No problem with the financing it in my name alone (so I can build some non-married credit). No problem getting home.

We used 1/4 tank of gas getting to the dealer; which included a couple of long down grades. Used about 2/3 that coming back even with those former down grades becoming up grades on the way back. Cool!

Now I’m looking to how I can extend power to a receptacle under the bench seat. Think I can come in from the external plug-in near the door. That should work. Otherwise, it’s a nice RV. Looking forward to getting out on the road.

BTW, I keep Windows around ONLY because I use this program (Open Live Writer) and a program called VideoMach (which I paid for) cause I haven’t found a similar program in Linux. And Linux is totally bereft of a decent blogging program.
