Warmth of the sun

Posted: April 27, 2008 in General, House

I’ve been thinking about solar heating for the pool pretty much since the first day I got into our pool and it was too cold for my tastes. I figured out pretty quickly that I’m a wimp and the closer the pool is to 82 degrees the longer I’m willing to stay in it. I ran through the gamut of what I could do to keep the pool warmer in the beginning and ending of the season. Solar is certainly the way to go, but I want to make sure whatever we do is convenient and somewhat attractive.

At Least It's Pink

Posted: April 25, 2008 in General

I was traveling around the interweb tonight and I ran across At Least It’s Pink (A Trashy Little Show).

Well I didn’t really run across it, I was looking through my address book and decided to Google one of my old friends (and when I say old, I mean close to 25 years). I knew she moved to NYC a number of years ago. Well I guess it’s with some fondness that I remember her (and others), so I’m happy to see that she’s doing something with her passion. I even unconcovered a (mostly) positive review of the show on the New York Times (that’s something in itself)! You can read it here.

Last of the Fireballs

Posted: April 25, 2008 in General

One of the clients at my wife’s practice brought in a whole canister of Atomic Fireballs for her office back in December. I guess none of the employees there love Fireballs because the container made its way to our house (to my desk specifically). Yesterday I ate the last of them.

There are 200 Fireballs in the container, and I figure it took me 3 1/2 months to eat them all (200/(3.5*30) = ~2 Fireballs a day.

Time to get my ass in gear

This weekend was the first reasonably nice weekend of the year. After months of dragging my ass out of bed late on the weekends, I actually got motivated (well as motivated as I get) to do something.

I live one mile from a Walmart, about three miles from a Home Depot, and five from both a Target and a Lowes. My local lumber/hardware store is probably a little over two miles from my house.
