Yum. That's on my short list. I'm still working my way through a batch of beef stroganoff I made the other day. I add serrano peppers to mine. You?

On the short list because of the cold snap.

Beef stroganoff - DONE!
Ham and Beans
Chili
Beef Pot Roast
Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

Leftovers take time because of my diet. 1.5 cups of any of the above for 1 meal with other meals being salads, fruits, etc.

On a less-positive note, I ordered a refurbed Dell desktop on the 8th and never got a confirmation from Dell. PayPal sure dinged my card right away and it's since posted. Dell never got the order into their system, so they couldn't issue a refund back to the card (and PayPal is as elusive as ever). I had to bounce around through 3 different people who had different levels of access to learn that the order never jumped across that last gap for a finished order (from PP to D). Got the CC company to dispute and roll back the charge and went back to Dell to do the payment directly. Saved $11 from last week and got a skosh faster computer too.

The new home has a slant ceiling in the master bedroom with a squeaky ceiling fan. It needed cleaning.  For a while now.  And the roads are icy, I'm retired, my wife likes a clean house, I've run out of excuses, maybe I'm bored (I learned as a child never to say that in front of my parents, or any other adults for that matter), etc.  And so I broke out the tall ladder and cleaned the fan.

I also investigated the squeak hoping not to find a family of mice.  No mice, but a bit of trim was loose. I pushed it in place and tightened it with a screwdriver, and the squeak vanished.

I like "no money" repairs.

I vape. It's better than smoking. I also need to put eye drops into my eyes. This morning, I was distracted and managed to put vape oil into an eye (the bottles are very similar) and went into shock with the agony of it. Lucky I work in a hospital. Unlucky that I can be a complete twat at times.

FYI for my American friends...
Although I am Canadian, there is a branch of the family that salutes the Stars and Stripes.
My grandfather first immigrated to the United States in 1896 from Japan. He subsequently married an Irish girl in Atlantic City in 1906. Their firstborn was my aunt. She was born in the USA so was American. The next 2 kids including my dad were born in Canada after the family moved to Toronto. When my American aunt met an American from Cambridge Mass they moved to the States. As a kid I barely remember my American uncle John but I do remember his brother Joe.
Joe was a Jesuit priest. When the war started he joined the US Navy and was posted to the USS Franklin (CV-13). In March 1945 Big Ben was attacked by a Japanese plane. Over 800 men were killed.
My uncle Joe was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by President Truman. So my aunt who was half Japanese had a brother-in-law who earned a medal fighting the Japanese.

History is full of irony.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

Spent seven freaking hours "bonding" with Mrs.Mini, furniture shopping for the new to us house. What a giant pain-pure torture. But I smiled, nodded approvingly, and generally was well behaved.  She then suggested we stop at a motorcycle/scooter shop we passed.  She shocked me by strongly suggesting I buy one of the Goldwing trikes they had in stock. I had to put my foot down on that, though. While I'm old, and really do like almost any Goldwing, I'm not gimpy enough to ride a trike that looks like an old mans version of a kids Big Wheel.  At least not yet.

Thanks. That line kinda speaks to how I wound up here.  All of the details of my life would be different had I made different decisions, such as college, jobs, etc.  But given certain consistent personality traits, I think that any alternative decision would have lead to a life that looks very much like the life I have now. Just with other people, a different town, and so on.

Visited Space Memorial Park in Titusville, FL this morning.  Well worth the stop, but I'm puzzled by why just one section was dog barred.   :shrug:   We went and walked all the rest of the markers, signs and statues.


As a side treat, I stopped at a local RV dealership and checked out a few used Class A & C units for informational purposes.  Having never been in one, I am absolutely curious about space layout, elbow room and general info on them.  They were all out of my price range, but it was a good fact finding mission.


Monday, I'll be doing the Space Museum on Canaveral all day or as much as I can stand.   ;D

We were all about a used class c...  until we drove one. Um...no. We had visions of Kim going back and making sammiches as needed, potty breaks without breaking, and baby you can sleep while I drive opportunities. Maybe the one we drove was just a beater but it crushed our dreams of the above.

I laughed internally at this sales guy. 


Talking the lowest priced $35k Class A they had in the lot up.  As I walked it, I noticed the water rippled ceiling, the many broken light fixtures and cracked trim rings on all the ceiling pass thrus.  It did have some good eye appeal until you looked UP.  Space utilization was excellent IMHO.  Rear bed turned on an angle from one corner gave a bunch more walk around room.  Bathroom was decently set up, kitchen would have had me cooking all the time.  (I like to cook!).  34k miles on the odo and a quick look at the outside revealed one year old tires with nearly no wear. 


I didn't look real close because I wasn't a buyer after seeing the ceilings. 

Class A - https://www.rvdirectamerica.com/default.asp?page=xPreOwnedInventoryDetail&id=6051063&p=1&s=Year&d=D&vt=motorhome&fr=xPreOwnedInventory

The class C?  A rolling wreck and $16k.  Yeah, I took a card and ran away to keep looking.

Played racquetball for the first time in ages with Fourstring and Sprout while Little Bit had swimming lessons. Sprout seems to be a natural. We had enough fun we decided to join the Y and make it a weekly thing.

Today was chainsaw day. Dropped a couple small trees with the 261 mostly out of convenience then cut up the wood to season. Then took the 391 with the newly acquired 25” bar and finally cut up the monster black oak logs that have been here since we built the house. There were three ~12 footers and we cut two of them. The rounds were a two man lift to get on the trailer and I wasn’t comfortable with loading any more than 4 at a time with the quad pulling it. So heavy. Really nice being able to use the quad to go into the woods and get the wood tho. Really nice. Now I just need a smaller trailer. The remaining log is the biggest and will preset the most challenge. Not sure we will be able to even get those rounds on the trailer. I might have to split them with the axe before trying to move them. Good times and a free workout.

That 261 (technically my brothers but I’m babysitting it for him) is an incredibly nice saw.  So quick and so light. Just put a brand new aggressive chain on it and it was such a dream to run. If you’re in the market, just spend the money up front. You won’t regret it.

Wisconsin has been seeing a major issue with an imported insect that is destroying ash trees.  The general understanding is that it came in to Chicago on an unfumigated or improperly fumigated shipping pallet.  Have you seen this in West Virginia yet?

Sorry to hear that, Papa.  Our problem is called the Emerald Ash Borer, possibly the same insect.

Yeah, we got that. Bad for the trees and bad in general I suppose. However, Ash is great firewood and even dead, burns hot and long. Problem is they're snapping off at the most illogical of places and they snap like candy canes when they land. Neighbor has a bunch of them down that we will go harvest soon.

We got all moved out of the house and into our daughter and son-in-laws guest room. Our new home for the 5 or 6 months it'll be before our new house is built. I have to say this whole find a house, get a mortgage, sell our house, pack our shit and git has been an experience, not an unpleasant one, but stressful and not one I care to repeat. A good excuse to simplify and get rid of a ton of accumulated things if nothing else..

Props to the movers we hired, the three of them flat busted ass and packed our two PODS like a jigsaw puzzle. Not being PC here, but anyone saying Hispanics are lazy hasn't worked with the people I've dealt with. All the ones I've used for various projects and also contracted with at work are some of the nicest and hardest working people I've met.

At any rate, now we'll just lay low for awhile until the house is done. SWMBO is having a ball picking out everything from floors to doorknobs so she's happy which is all that counts.

I helped fix a cabinet door and hang four new curtain rods and curtains at my wife's sister's place.  My wife helped her sister pick out some new décor, I was consulted mostly for the practical aspects but they also welcomed my decorating suggestions.  The bro-in-law is an engineer, but these types of things are just a really low priority for him so my being on hand today seems to serve as the prompt for us to complete a backlog of tasks.  Next weekend we take down a vertical blind at the sliding patio door and replace it with a curtain rod and more curtains.

I was afraid of that. A barren Appalachia just wouldn't be as pleasant.

I've been wondering how long it will take our forests to recover, what type of mix of trees will grow in place of the ash, and how much effort and cost we might incur in clean up to prevent fires and possible replanting.  A friend took time off from work, rented a lift and tied off branches and then the trunks of two large ash that died on his city lot where the trees can't just be felled.  I think of that cost multiplied by every household or business with ash trees in addition to the cost on public lands.

Fricken Windows, fricken every time, I fricken work on one there's fricken something to fricken fight with.

This time it was a new one. Everything set up like usual. Updates and upgrades done without a hitch. Then no connectivity to the outside world. It would reach out to Micro$oft's web site and hit google (dot com) and do searches. Try to click on a external link and fricken falez evahwhar. A real head scratcher.  Finally figured out it had set up the Ethernet as a "public" network so it locked down everything except updates (think about a deployment in a food court).

Frack! I hate Windoze!

I just turned down a bunch of paying work on a Windows and Azure small biz set up. I just don't know so much any more, and don't want to charge someone to (re)learn a platform that I don't care about or like any more. All those old Microsoft certs I have aren't worth a damn any more, and I'm A-OK with that.

Sleepytime herbal tea and honey, big comfy chair in the study, Baroque on Pandora, doggo napping in my lap.  Seems to be a good day.

I've had more than a year to practice being retired.  I think I'm doing it right.

Friday- was opening day deer season.  Saturday I had a small 8 point and a larger 6 point come in- I tried to take the big 6 with my 10mm pistol, but it wouldn't hold still, so I let it walk.  Does taste better anyway.

Saw Ford v. Ferrari.  It was a lot better than I was expecting.  The racing was good. The corporate infighting was interesting in a sad way.

Sorry to hear that, Papa.  Our problem is called the Emerald Ash Borer, possibly the same insect.
 There's just something so sad about a forest standing dead.

That's beetle waiting to cross from France. Ash Die Back Disease is a fungus. Hymenoscyphus fraxineus-used to be called Chlarara . Got here in 2006. About a third of trees are resistant.

The kitchen faucet handle in the new home was a bit loose, but the handle's set screw was tight so I just left it be since we're thinking of remodeling.  Then the handle just came off with another part still attached.

Turns out it was a loose screw about three parts down inside the mechanism--the handle attached to a part which itself attached to another part and that's where the fault laid.  All fixed.  But to do so required a bit of effort as the part attached to the handle needed to be disconnected from the handle for assembly and the set screw for the handle had been locktighted to an obscene degree.  Then these parts were corroded together and needed to be held with a vise while I pried them apart.

Another no cost repair!  Yea!

A gloomy and rainy day.

So once again I headed to the comfy chair in the study, this time to sit with the dog in my lap while listening to moody Celtic new age music with a Scotch. 

Maybe the Ninjette will see sunshine tomorrow.

Took the mower linkage assembly off the tractor, greased and checked the fluids then installed the blower assembly and the blower.

Bring it.

Cleaned up the yard and made  several cubic yards of leaf mulch, because what else are you gonna do with them.

Continued with my exercise program, 3 solid weeks now and I feel great, and am improving what I want to improve, except weight. Not really worried about that as I am definitely in better shape, working out 5 to 6 days a week.Today's end will mark end of week 4.

Muscle is denser than fat, so if you are loosing inches but maintaining the same weight you are probably replacing fat with muscle. Sounds like this is working for you. 

Now if I could just get motivated.  But the comfy chair keeps calling out to me.

Be careful what you ask for.  Polar vortex?   :lol:

Your request reminded me of this guy who has been in my local news recently.  It probably belongs in the weird news, but it's unwise to publicly dare a federal prosecutor:  https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/investigations/2019/10/07/todd-dyer-bring-on-felon-harassing-victims-prison/3864489002/

Slipped at work and dislocated my right ring finger to a 90 degree angle. It all happened so fast. Without even thinking I reached down and grabbed it and snapped it straight again. Then I had to ride the Ural home.

It's okay though, it was my right-hand so it was just the brakes.

I hate that. Get well soon. Snapped the last joint of my left pinkie when I tried to catch something that was slipping off a coworker's shelf. Pilon break from stabbing the finger straight down on the arm of his guest chair. Worked the rest of the day after going down to the cafeteria and getting a couple of plastic knives to use as splints.

My knuckle is purple. I woke up this morning and realized that the finger didn't hurt at all but my knees where I hit were bruised and my back was jacked. It's been an irritating day at work so far with three hours to go.

Getting old blows.
