Jade Plants

I can’t keep Jade Plants alive. They look good for a couple of months, then die suddenly. I’ve tried them in different locations around the house, inside outside every which side. Then all the leaves fall off and they die.

I lost two (all I had) this week and last. Any suggestions?.

Two years ago,

Two years ago, at 1AM, my Father passed away

Today I have an outside broadcast in the afternoon, so I get the good ol extended lunch hour! It used to happen every Wednesday, as I did sound for YOUTH FLEX, but since the new studio went in, I am no longer needed. Except when there’s a remote broadcast, like today.

Busy Day

Today I have a Doctors Appointment at OH seven thirty, then I have to go to customs and get some cables that are there for work.
Uh, I forgot what all else.

Rebreathers are Better!

Yesterday, in the morning My Wife and I did our first rebreather dive alone together. Later that afternoon, we did another dive, open circuit (that means with tanks) with some friends who wanted to go. After the dive My Wife said, “Rebreathers are definitely better.
I knew that, but glad to know she thinks so too!!
Here’s pics from the two dives: Click to enlarge!


After working yesterday, I hope to go diving with the wife today. Several people want to go with us, but I don’t plan on calling any of them till AFTER we dive.

UP Date

Haven’t posted in a while. I re-formatted my hard drive, installed Windows XP again. My computer came new with Vista, but I found it totally unacceptable for Radio use and had to install XP. So this is the second time I’ve installed XP on it. Funny how I can format my HD, install my OS, and then be surprised how different some things are.
Last night several of our friends and we went to a “Restaurant” called Rolands Garden. It is outside, and there is no menu. The chef cooks whatever he has planned and serves it up himself. I think he’s a retired chef and has a little something on the side.
It was really good.

What a hassle

I formatted my computer, and now it will take a while to get all my issues sorted out. All my pictures I put on DVD. It was two and a half years of pics, and it took almost half a dozen DVD’s. Now all my pics are far far away, hard to post on my blog.
It’s OK, I’ll just take more.
I just got my email sorted out, and that’s good.
My power settings are messed up, I can’t make the laptop turn off when I close the lid.
My built-in camera isn’t working.

But it’s not locking up on me anymore, and it seems better, overall!

New Laptop coming?

Having major computer problems, the damn thing keeps freezing up, so that the only thing I can do is turn the power off then back on to get it working.

For the past couple of days I’ve been getting all my pics and docs off of it so I can re-format the drive, and see if that helps, but who knows.
Anyway, that’ why I haven’t been able to post lately.

Suddenly a GIANT BAT swooped down out of the sky!!

Yesterday my wife was driving us downtown and I had the camera and was just taking random pictures as we drove.

Suddenly a giant bat swooped down and started flying in front of the car! It was HUGE! Mildly, I said, “It looks like there’s a giant bat flying if front of the car.” My wife said “Oh yeah”. We were strangely calm in what could have been the last few seconds of our lives.

I’m surprised nobody else saw it, that it wasn’t in the news, like Godzilla or something!

Then I realized it was a little spotted eagle ray hanging from my wifes rear view mirror!
Boy was I embarassed!
