I recently reinstalled Twitter on my phone and almost instantly regretted it. I’m constantly getting notifications for “recommended content” that I’m not interested in yet I can’t disable them without missing notifications for the things that I follow. Very frustrating; … Continue reading
After the ordeal of cutting tall wet grass in the rain this past weekend, a robotic lawn mower is looking better and better. It’s still far down on the list of things to buy. But it would be nice to have one; especially given our recent weather. When we finally have a sunny day, yard work is the last think I want to be doing. It really would be nice to remotely cut the grass from an app on my phone while I was out doing something I wanted to do. That is new technology that I would really use.
Like everyone else, we’ve got a long list of dream items to buy. But, with all of the rain we’ve been having recently, I would really would like to have a robotic lawnmower. Then, I wouldn’t be wasting dry Saturday or Sunday afternoons cutting the grass. Obviously, it’s not a necessity. But it would certainly add some extra hours to my weekend. These days, one of my biggest yard work tasks is cleaning wet grass out of the lawn mower.
You can still see the remnants of our tan from our time in the sun two weeks ago. It certainly isn’t from around here. Its mostly been cloudy and rainy. And, even though its almost May, we’ve almost never had … Continue reading
I am not sure how well the picture shows it; but I got sunburn on the top of my head while we were on our spring break trip last week. Having peeling skin on your head is annoying. But I would rather be “recovering” from too much sun versus siting inside waiting for warmer weather. Of course, the best thing is to get enough sun so that neither is likely. Hopefully we will soon have plenty of warm, sunny days around here.
I found what went wrong with our camera in the previous photo session. It was set to take only up to 2 pictures. So, it did what it was supposed to. I don’t know why it forgot what it’s normal setting; but its fixed now. It’s a nuisance to change since it only changes one number at a time so you have to keep holding the button for a long time. Yet one more reason to get a new one.
Were back online! All is well except for a bit more cleanup from the network connectivity issue while we were on hiatus. Its rare for us to take a week off; but sometimes, real life makes it necessary. Our camera stopped working (again) during our photo session. So, we have a limited selection of pictures. Very annoying when that happens. We’ll probably reach into the way-back machine and post “old” from the week we were offline. We still have a few things to catch up on. But, in the meantime, it’s good to publish a new post.
I haven’t had a good night’s sleep any night since the time change. I’ve always hand something to do that kept me up late and or got me up early. So, today we’re posting a short video that required minimal editing. We still plan to get a new camera that can take unattended videos from on the tripod. Its just not at the top of the list. Especially in tax season.
I did not realize it until preparing for this week’s photo session that I left the memory card in the card reader. No one else uses our computer and the SD card was already ejected. And dogs don’t use computers. … Continue reading
