I've realized I'm an internet hog. During my research prior to making an offer on a house in the hills I've found the only internet available is via satellite and there's a 'cap' of 50GM/month on even the most expensive plan. I checked, and I average 38MB just with my two computers. That doesn't count my wife's tablet on the net every evening and sure as heck doesn't count our Netflix/Hulu/Amazon streaming. I'm sure I'm sucking up close to 120MB/month.

A circuit board took out our AC, then late last night some unfortunate collided with a High Tension tower and took out the power for half the city (my half.)
The electricity was restored by 2:00 PM, the HVAC tech got the new board plugged in by 2;30. All is well except for resetting all the clocks and being $500 bucks the poorer.

For $100 under the table, the HVAC tech might have been willing to set your clocks for you.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Ha, it would have been if I didn't have us in the cheap seats.

You'd have been impressed with the crown upfront. It was like an all female geriatric mosh pit.

If you ever ride over in the direction of Port Arthur, be sure to visit the museum of the Gulf Coast, and let me know you're coming, I'll get some boudain on the grill.

Out at the cabin opening up. Morning show hours mean on weekends I sleep in until 5:00 a.m., so I've been working away since then. I got the water running and no leaks in the pipes this year!

I cracked a beer after 4 hours of hard work.

Then I realized it was 9:30 a.m.

Whoops.
