Just a quick post, but I had to share this video with all you fellow Metal Heads. Ripping guitar by a guy in a Bow Tie. Enjoy and Rock, Rock on or is it Riggity, Riggity, Roll now.
Has it really been two weeks since my last post. What a slacker! Let’s see I went to Palm Springs for the ESRI Developer Summit and sat in sessions with a bunch of GIS programers. What fun that was!It was nice to get out of the cubicle for a few days, but I really missed coming home at night to my family instead of a hotel room. This past weekend I worked on my “to do” list around the house. I got the swamp cooler all ready for summer and as you can expect we had the weather turn colder.I also put together a screen for a window that never had one. Boy is that a frustrating do-it-yourself job! I think I will pay someone to do that before I try it again.
After discovering a bolt in my tire last week, I decided to replace all four tires on my truck rather than just one. I decided with Renee to get All-Terrain tires since the sidewalls on my tires were getting so beat up on our dirt road. To try the new tires out, we went driving in Juniper Flats, an area in the mountains by our house. While following the trail, we came to a point where the trail appeared to crest the top of a very high hill next to a powerline. I decided to slow down and stop before proceeding as I could not see past the hood to the downside. Good thing I did as the trail ended and there was a pretty steep drop on the other side (shown from the opposite direction above). We ended up spending the next 30 minutes crawling down a trail on the side of a mountain before reaching level ground. No guardrail and no way to turn around. Turned Renee’s knuckles very white. Fun for the whole family.
Okay, last Wednesday night I am sitting on the couch with Renee and I bite into something. I then turn to Renee and tell her my tooth just broke. I show it too her and one of my molars has a piece that wiggles when I touch it with my tongue. The next morning I am off to the dentist and guess what I get to have done. I get a crown. Turns out that one of the fillings I had put in when I was but a child has now split the tooth. Fun for me. The novacaine works great and I don’t feel a thing until later when it wears off. My head was pounding. Glad I took the rest of the day off. So I now have a temporary crown awaiting a permanent one that is being made. The dentist was nice and the he did good work, but the pain in my jaw and head afterwards was something new to me. Isn’t it great getting older and experiencing new things. Not!!!
