Wednesday Weirdness #314

We have the maximum number of remotes for our garage door openers which is actually a gigantic PIA. I always end up totally clearing the openers and re-learning ALL the remotes since the openers always delete the oldest device learned which is never the one that need to re-added. Who designs devices that can’t clear memory positions independently? And why is it always cold and blustery outside when I need to fix things.

Tuesday Two For #314

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairAmazingly, our camera stayed on for the entire photo session. That shouldn’t be noteworthy. However, with the way our photo sessions have gone recently it was a welcome change to have a full selection of photographs. It won’t last. Or camera is past it’s useful life even for the undemanding standards of a bed-cam. So, we’re going to enjoy it while for as long as we can.

Monday Monologue #314

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Though its actually several weeks away, Saturday seemed like the start of winter. It was cold and blustery with snow swirling in the air. I wanted to cut my grass one more time before switching my outdoor power equipment to snow removal mode. But, looking at the extended forecast, I don’t see that happening.
  • The light socket to our oven is broken, and, unfortunately, our local supply store doesn’t stock the part. I ordered the replacement online from a cheap but slow appliance parts supplier. Even though I ordered it today, they’ll won’t ship it until the end of this week so I won’t get it until sometime after Thanksgiving. I would never ever, purchase something I was in urgent need of from them.
  • With all of the browser warnings that are starting to appear regarding “insecure” web sites, I changed this site to redirect to HTTPS. I modified the database directly rather than use a plugin so everything should still be the same. If not, please let us know.
  • The wife and I both donated blood on Saturday. It was a good thing to do over Veteran’s day weekend and an appropriate way to end the outdoor rowing season and start indoor training. It will be months before we “need” maximum cardiovascular capacity again.

Friday Featurette #313

The Wife sucking The Husband's dickOur anti-virus software is nagging us to renew even though we still have several weeks left. I hate being nagged, especially by computers. I understand the subscription-based model for certain products. But the reminders are still annoying. I will renew or find another product before it expires. I don’t need to be reminded every logon. Anyway, have a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #313

The USB charging cables for our both our phones broke when we were on the road this past weekend. Of course, all the stores were closed when we plugged our phones in to charge overnight. Fortunately, they still worked if you carefully connected them in a certain position. What are the chances of them both dying on the same trip?

Tuesday Two For #313

The Wife sitting naked on the bed with a tube of flavored lubricantOur camera took just one photograph before dying. And then when I switched it to move mode, it stayed on for less them 4 minutes. In the words of The Wife “it is nearing the end of its useful life”. Obviously, not much content to choose form this week. But, we still had fun making it.

Monday Monologue #313

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • We broke another water bottle this past weekend. We didn’t have any issues for a long time; but we’ve broken two (and lost one) this summer. We’ve dropped them without a problem in the past. Recently, however, the bottles have cracked where the lids screw on.
  • We came home Sunday to a clogged drain pipe in the kitchen. It wasn’t difficult to un-clog. Just disgusting. I had to disassemble the trap in order to remove the lateral pipe that was the source of the clog. So, we had to deal with the smell from the rest of the drain pipes in addition to the smell of the clog. Not fun.
  • Sadly, we’ve put our new boats away for the year. It’s too dark to row in the evenings after the time change. We’re hoping for a warm sunny weekend day where we can row our older, less tippy one. But, the season is definitely over for the smaller, newer ones.
  • As always, we are both struggling to adjust to the time change. Our internal clocks don’t adjust as smoothly as electronic ones.

Friday Featurette #312

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionThe problem with the camera is that the dial is worn and won’t stay in the selected mode. And the camera “resets” whenever the mode is changed. I could understand having the problem when the device is handheld. But it still happens even when it’s sitting on a tripod. It’s just old and worn. Anyway, sorry for the reruns. Have a great weekend.
