Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Hot and humid over the weekend then we’re supposed to get the remnants of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Barry on Monday and Tuesday.

The weekend: We’re going to dinner with friends Saturday evening but no real plans otherwise.  Last weekend I said I had no plans and ended up cutting up a tree that fell at the side of my yard and ended up spending about 6 hours out in the heat working on branches and yard work.  I was wiped! I won’t fall for that this weekend.

TV: We finished season 3 of Stranger Things ☆☆☆ (Netflix).  I like it except I don’t care for the things that jump out and scare you. Keeping up with The Handmaid’s Tale (HULU).  I watched the first episode of Rebellion (Netflix) but my wife bailed on it about half way thru, so I don’t know if we’ll watch more of that or not.

Websites: The Like button is now back working on the sites.  you can like both posts and comments.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Typical early July weather for Mid-America. Some rain, some sun, warm temperatures, lots of humidity and long days.

The weekend: No big plans for the weekend. Might go to a party Saturday afternoon/evening.

TV Binging: We’re trying to finish up the third and probably final season of Jessica Jones (Netflix) before we start on season three of Stranger Things (Netflix).

Website problems: We had a problem a couple days ago when a major plugin failed to update. It took a while to get it up and running.  At about the same time another plugin that gives us the Like button also had an update.  That update didn’t “fail” but the Like button was no longer there and usable.  I don’t know if there is a plugin compatibility problem of if the Like button plugin is faulty.  So far I haven’t been able to find out why it’s not working but Ill continue to work on it.  In the meantime I have a different Like button  for B&P but I don’t like it as well.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Hard to believe the 4th of July is coming up this week. Hot and humid and of course a little rain added in is typical.

The week ahead: We’re going to the horse races Saturday night with friends. Sunday is the Pride Parade in St. Louis. I think we’re going to have some family over on the 4th. I’m not big into fireworks and I know Buster isn’t either. I’ve been really surprised at how little we’ve heard in the line of fireworks around here this year, and that’s great with me. Hopefully, it’ll continue to be calm and fairly;y quiet.

TV: We finished Happy Valley’s 2nd season and are now watching Marvel’s Jessica Jones ☆☆☆ 3rd season (Netflix). I was really disappointed to learn that The Village ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ (NBC) was canceled. I thought it was one of the better shows on network TV.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks like we’re in for a wet week ahead. The rivers around here have crested (second highest on record) and just started to recede and now we’re going to get this mess.

The week ahead: On Saturday, I’ll probably sit at home and watch a half million people (that’s what they’re predicting) attend the Stanley Cup parade taking place downtown which will end at a rally beneath the Gateway Arch to celebrate the St. Louis Blues winning the cup for the first time in their history. Sunday we’re going to do Father’s Day with family relaxing at the pool.

TV Binging: We finished season three of Sneaky Pete (Amazon) and are now watching the new season of The Handmaid’s Tale (HULU).

Having new gutters put on the house this coming week.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: We’ve had quite a bit of wet and stormy weather, not to mention a couple of nearby tornadoes this last week. Looks like rain over the weekend and then clearing out for the rest of the week. But, since this is Missouri, we know things can change and change quickly.

The weekend: Weather permitting I’m going to work on another section of fence on Saturday and probably Monday. Sunday is pignic time.

TV:  We finished the third and final season of The Fall (BBC America), about a serial killer in Belfast. Just starting the 3rd season of Sneaky Pete (Amazon).  Looking forward to Dead To Me (Netflix).

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Summer-like weather is here. We’ve been getting quite a bit of rain and temps in the 90°F range.

The weekend: Going to a 50th birthday party for my son and his girlfriend on Saturday.  Sunday I might get outside and do some work if it stops raining early enough and it’s not too wet.  We have dinner with friends on Sunday evening, so I’m not sure the outside work will happen.  FYI: My hand and wrist have returned to normal after several days of pain and swelling.

TV Binging:  We’re into the third season of The Fall (Netflix). Several series we watch (Sneaky Pete (Amazon) and Kim’s Convenience (Netflix) among them, have returned and we want to finish The Fall before we start on them.

Weather: The week ahead starts off a bit cooler with on and off showers throughout the week.

The weekend: Was hoping to do some more landscaping work in the back yard this weekend but rain and various activities including Mother’s Day make that seem improbable.

Website News:
Likes: On Friday we passed the 100,000 Likes on B&P. We added the Like button 10 months ago. Thanks to all of you who use the Like buttons.

Looks like website troubles from a few days ago have cleared up and things seem to be back to normal for now.
