Carmen (his girlfriend) drew the front and he wrote a lovely message inside.
May 3rd was a good day!
Three plain, a cherry, a blueberry, and a cranberry. The SCOBY is in her hotel, waiting to get a new home. Plus a small glass just to drink!
Turns out we had too strong a signal for the TiVo, so once Ryan put a splitter on the line, it started right up and worked. Woo hoo!
I ran out of contacts and had to wear my glasses for a few days. What a pain! Plus they make me self-conscious, not sure why. I’m happy to not have that hassle.
He didn’t fix our problem, but at least somebody tried to help us, after almost a month of waiting. We have a new TiVo setup and it’s not working correctly with Frontier, who took over for Verizon in Florida at the beginning of April. It’s been a disaster. But, hopefully it will be fixed soon!
Our old host jacked up the rate to $50 per month, so we moved to a new host and everything seems to be A-OK. It was a big job. But, now we’re saving a lot money! 🙂
We picked her up last night and dropped her back off tonight, in Orlando, at the Turkey Lake Service area of the Florida Turnpike. I got to check out her truck!
The first batch provided enough tea to start a new brew of a gallon.
She gave me a set of old hard-sided luggage, and we finally found a very good use for it – the large one carries all the miscellaneous DJ equipment! It’s perfect for the job… it has good protection, it’s sturdy, and it’s roomy enough for everything we need to take with us on a job. Sweet!
Bacon, getting the bathroom wall back up after repairs, intense and very enjoyable sex, thriving tomato plants, a truly delightful new kitchen faucet, yard nibbles, pizza & calzone, building a shelf and doubling our under-sink storage space (plus getting it organized), drinking a glass of cabernet, finding a better storage space for the step ladder, and watching Hell’s Kitchen. Plus there’s still a UFC event and perhaps a visitor!
This new setup is to help with two things… to give the plants the correct amount of water (5 gallons per plant, per week) and to keep water off the leaves (to prevent fungus like what happened last time). All I have to do is fill the bucket every other day, and it will give them water and some nutrition (there’s compost in the bucket). The fencing will be the supports as well as a barrier to keep the critters out. We’ll see how this batch goes.
Our area of Florida is good for growing olives.
Whenever we have to work on our house, we’re amazed at the lazy construction. It’s nice to replace something that was just thrown together.
