Weather or not!

January 4, 2013

It was also at least -1F/-18C when I got up on the 3rd, Thursday.  Nippy!  Currently 33F/1C.  After a few days of normal temps, it will warm up and melt all the snow.  So far not an impressive winter.

A snowy Thursday

December 28, 2012

On The 27th we actually got the snowstorm predicted, about 8″/20cm of snow.  As the temp was above freezing once the snow stopped, it was wet heavy, & great for heart attacks.  Thank you maintenance crew.

 

 

A good Wednesday

December 28, 2012

On Wednesday the 26th, pushing aside the fatigue from chemo, I managed to actually get a bunch done: get petrol, visit library, get air for my tires, pick up chemo schedule, pick up BaSO4 for CAT scan, shop at BJ’s, & get Depend at Wal-Mart.  It was either do it today or wait until Friday or Saturday due to the snowstorm on Thursday.  Then crashed out in my recliner with a book.

 

Food

December 25, 2012

Lin & I had a traditional Jewish Christmas dinner.  We ordered out for Chinese.

Snow!!!!!

November 29, 2012

Albany paralyzed by Blizzard & Global Colding!  The temp dropped to -1C/31F.  A trace of snow brought the city to a halt.  Experts expect the city to be up and running within 72 hours!

Turkey Day!

November 19, 2012

Ah yes, Turkey day!  Instead of Denny’s I’ll be enjoying turkey breast at home.  To celebrate the occurrence I’ll be baking  up a pecan pie.  Lin not to be outdone is baking up a pumpkin pie.  Oh yes, potatoes, french cut string beans with almonds & mushrooms.  Yum!

Computers!

November 15, 2012

Yesterday was quiet until the computer began acting up.  I couldn’t connect to the web.  It turned out to be the fault of the McAfee security suite.  Simple solution.  I uninstalled McAfee.  Lo & behold up came the internet!  I then went & installed Avast.

Weather report!

October 30, 2012

The passage of Sandy on the 29th was much less traumatic than predicted.  We did get some rain & wind, but for a quite short period.  Some additional rain & wind are  predicted for the rest of today.  Most lucky.  We’ve had much worse.  While the power flickered a couple times, it didn’t go off.

Time for a change.

October 22, 2012

Sigh!  It is apparently time.  I’m giving myself a Chanukah present early.  I just ordered a new tower.  It is the latest & greatest from Dell.  Made sure it is compatible with Windows XP as I have some programs I wish to transfer to the new tower.

This also means I’ll have to learn how to use Outlook.  I do like Outlook Express.

It should arrive next week.

I recommend this!
