Weekend Open Mic

Weather: It’s going to warm up a little bit but I think it’s still a bit cooler than normal for this time of year.

The week ahead: I’m starting to get involved with some video projects I do for a Christmas program we do every year.  I also want to do some yard work this weekend.  

TV: We’re still watching The Spy (Netflix) and started on The IT Crowd (Netflix).  

Website Problem: WordPress, the software I use for the sites had a major update this week.  There seemed to be a problem when it was updated on B&P. I believe the problem only affects the back end, where my work is done, and I don’t think readers will see anything different. But’s a major headache for me. I have the Big Brains at my hosting company working on it. They have isolated it down to a PHP issue and hopefully they will have it fixed by the time you read this.  They said it could be up to 72 hours before it’s fixed, but usually sooner.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: BRRRR!

The week ahead: I may go help do some work at out club on Sunday if I’m feeling up to it (might have a cold coming on) since it’ll be a bit warmer than it will the rest of the week.  Not much else planned.

TV Binging: We watched Modern Love (Prime) and I really liked that.  8 episodes, 6 are really good and 2 are fair but they all tie together nicely.  Watched several episodes of Working Moms (Netflix).  Has some funny moments but I’m not sure I’ll make it thru 3 seasons of that.  Still enjoying This Is Us and A Million Little Things, Walking Dead and Talking Dead.  A new season of Shameless (Showtime) starts on Sunday night.

Vegas: Hoping to get a few more people committed to joining us in Las Vegas the first week of April.  Info here.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks like November is gonna drag me into cold weather whether I like it or not. And for the record, I don’t like it.

TV: We watched the second season of The Kominsky Method (Netflix). I really like that show. Still watching and enjoying This Is Us (NBC) and A Million Little Things (ABC) as well as The Connors (ABC).

The weekend: I try to attend WordCamps when I can. WordCamps are conferences that center around WordPress, which is the software I use to blog with. They’re held in different cities and I attended WordCamp Las Vegas in September. Once a year there is a WordCamp US which is the granddaddy of them all. I attended that last year in Nashville TN. This year it is being held in St. Louis this weekend (Fri – Sun). So I don’t have to spring for a hotel or travel.
I’m also going to a Halloween Party Friday night, so I have a very busy weekend. I’ve pre-blogged quite a bit, but I won’t be around as much to watch over things and moderate comments.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Chilly and wet is a typical way to close out October in the St. Louis area.

TV: We watched season 1 of Living With Yourself (Netflix) in which Paul Rudd plays a character and also the character’s clone. It was weird but interesting.

The week:  I’m probably not going to be doing much this weekend and the week ahead.  Im having some joint problems and couldn’t stand up straight for a couple of days but I’m feeling a little better.  I do need to dig up my banana trees and store my hoses for the winter.  Saturday is supposed to be cold and nasty so I might try to do that on Sunday if I feel up to it.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Fall is running a little late in these parts but summer is definitely done. It’s actually pretty nice.

I used to hate fall because everything was dying. Now I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty of fall and only hate winter. Well, really only the freezing cold and ice that usually accompanies winter. I don’t mind the first snow or two.

The week: I plan on doing a little work around the house this weekend but nothing major.  I got my landscaping project done last weekend.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Fall is definitely here. There was a frost warning for early this morning (Saturday). It’s going to warm up a bit this week, but still really nice weather.

The week ahead: We’re gonna try to do some landscaping in the back yard this weekend since the weather might cooperate. Other than that, not much planned.

Meds: I’m doing pretty well since I cut my anti-inflammatory meds dosage in half, trying to keep my kidneys functioning and yet be comfortable. (Knock on wood) I can tell a little bit of difference, but it hasn’t been too bad. I go back for bloodwork in January.

TV Binging: We finished binging on The Politician (Netflix). We haven’t started anything new since we’ve just been trying to catch up on a few things and watching the Cardinals in the playoffs.

Weather: Fall hit on Thursday with high temperatures dropping about 25 degrees from a couple of record-high days on Tuesday and Wednesday. I held the door for a woman at the gym Friday morning and she mentioned how cold it was. I chided her about how we’re complaining already and she just laughed.

The week ahead:  I’m just working around the house and/or yard this weekend. Nothing unusual scheduled for the coming week.

Las Vegas 2020: I made my reservations the other day.  We’ll be there from April 1-7.  We’ll be staying at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino on the Strip.  We’d love to know who is thinking about joining us in Las Vegas.  Please leave a comment on the Las Vegas page if you think you might make it.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Wet and warm. It’s a little above normal temps for this part of the country in late September. The rain we’re getting over the weekend is part of the remnants of Tropical Depression Imelda. We could get an inch or two of rain, nothing like they got in Texas.

The week ahead: Don’t have much planned for this weekend or the coming week.

TV Binging: We finished the second season of Mindhunter (Netflix). I wasn’t crazy about how the season ended, but it’s still an interesting show. Started watching The Ranch (Netflix) and should finish that over the weekend.

Websites: Everything seems to be working as expected.

Weather: Summer is trying to hang on as long as it can. But we are getting some spurts of cooler and less humid days every now and then.

The week ahead: I’m going to a trivia night on Saturday night and then to a party to celebrate Krisgo’s birthday on Sunday afternoon.  Not much going on after that.

Binging: We’re into season two of Mindhunter (Netflix) about an FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit that interviews serial killers to see if they can figure out how to predict future serial killers. 

Website:  I think I’ve finally figured out the problem that plagued B&P for a week or so.  I had a plugin that would crash every time there was an update to it.  I would then have to completely remove it and reinstall it (a pain in the ass to do), but this last time that did not work.  So after installing an update to WordPress, I was able to install and activate the plugin without a problem. I just hope the next update of that plugin goes smooth. 

Las Vegas: I spent 5 days there staying in downtown for the first time.  On my last full day there (Monday) I took the bus to the strip to sight see a bit.  This is the first time I’ve been to Vegas and not seen a show.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: It was 108 ° F here in Las Vegas on Friday. Gonna cool down starting on Sunday. I wish I had brought a jacket. 🙂

The week ahead: I’m attending a conference over the weekend and have a free day on Monday. I will be flying home on Tuesday.

Website: I am having a problem with one of the main plugins I use on this site. It controls the sharing buttons along with some other things I use. I’m hoping I can get some insight on why I can’t get the plugin to load anymore at this conference. Hopefully, when I get back home I’ll be able to get the problem solved.
