Weekend Open Mic

Weather: We’re supposed to get a slight break from several days of 100°+ temperatures.  It’s been brutal and I’ve not had to go outside much.  My wife is in a softball tournament and played 2 games in the middle of the day Friday and has three games scheduled for Saturday.

The weekend:  I’m not planning on doing much this weekend with the temperatures being as hot as they are.  We’re having family over on Sunday to celebrate my birthday, which is on Monday.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Summer in St. Louis.  Hot and humid!

The weekend: Don’t have any definite plans for the weekend.

Websites:  I’ve removed the video ads on B&P that were creating problems with some readers.  I’ll keep searching for a solution because my ad revenues are waaaay down without the video ads, even more than I expected.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Fairly typical weather for the first week of July.  Looks like there might be some precipitation on the 4th of July.

The weekend: Looks like we’re going to be working on landscaping on Saturday for a while.  Not sure what’s going on on Sunday.

TV: I’ve watched two episodes of Black Mirror and I don’t know what to think.  I thought I was watching season one but I somehow watched the first two episodes of season 3.  Kind of weird. Not sure I can stick with it.  Binged season 5 of House of Cards and season 3 of The Ranch (I really like this show except for the laugh track).  Saw a couple episodes of The Keepers – interesting. I’ve also watched a few episodes of Grace and Frankie and the first season of Mad Men. Finishing up Better Call Saul and will probably watch the new season of The Preacher.

Websites: Some people are still having some issues with an ad on B&P.  I’ve been searching for a solution but have been unable to find anything yet.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: After several hot days this past week we’re in for a bit cooler and less humid 3 or 4 days before the heat and humidity return.

Website:  I’ve changed the theme for the website(s).  I’m liking the way it looks and my ability to make large and small changes.  It’s a responsive theme, which means it changes depending on what you’re viewing the site on, whether it be a computer, tablet or smartphone.  I can fine-tune things as we go along but in general, I think it’s close to what it will be like for a while.  Your thoughts are always welcome.

The weekend:  Will probably do some landscaping work since the weather is supposed to be nice this weekend.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Summer in the city. … and sticky and humid too.

My week:  It’s been a pretty eventful week, Had the deaths of family members of three close friends this week in three straight days. Then on Thursday, my computer decided to not boot up after a software update.  It’s in the shop but will hopefully be back Saturday.  I’m using my laptop but it sure isn’t as nice as the desktop.

B&P Changes: There may be a new look to B&P in the not too distant future.  I’m trying out a new theme on another website and it looks promising.  I’ll make sure I can get it to do what I want it to do before I switch B&P over.

The weekend: Going to dinner with friends Saturday evening and getting together with family for Father’s Day on Sunday.

Weather: Hot and humid.  We did have a few days of cooler and less humid weather earlier this week.

The weekend:  Getting a Dingo machine to move some dirt and gravel in the back yard on Saturday. Then we have planned a trip to the horse races Saturday night.  

Update:  I’ve added the ability for you to add a photo to your comment.  Please make sure they’re PG rated or you won’t be coming here any longer.

Binging:  Will probably finish up the third and final season of Bloodline (Netflix).  Then will start on the new season of House of Cards (Netflix).

Memorial Day Weekend Open Mic

Our weekend extends into Monday in the US as we celebrate Memorial Day, a day set aside to honor those who died while serving in the armed forces.

Weather:  Saturday promises lots of rain and could bring us some severe storms which will clear out Sunday and Monday. 

The Memorial Day weekend:  Dinner with friends Saturday evening. Sunday we’ll be attending a Memorial Day pignic as we’ve done for the last 47 years. Monday, Memorial Day will probably find me working in the yard, trying to get some landscaping done before the really hot weather hits.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks a little more like summer than spring.  Flooding of a week or two ago is slowly receding.  Most of the roads have reopened.

Naps are dangerous: I have some joint pain from time to time from DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease).  I had to stop taking anti-inflammatories last year because they were damaging my kidneys.  I had very few problems when I was on them. Generally, it hasn’t been as bad as I had expected but some days are kind of rough.  Wednesday my foot started bothering me and it seemed a little worse on Thursday morning.  Mid-day on Thursday I started getting a migraine headache, which thankfully aren’t as bad as they used to be for me.  So I decided to take a nap until at least the vision blind spots went away. I ended up napping for about an hour.  When I got up I couldn’t straighten up.  My back was killing me.  I had done something to my back during my nap.  I can sit or lie down fairly comfortably but standing and walking make me feel more like an older man than I probably am.  Avoid naps!

The weekend: We’re going to a community concert my granddaughter is playing trumpet in on Saturday evening.  Then on Sunday, we’re visiting family to celebrate Mother’s Day and May family birthdays. 

Around the house:  I got 3 tons of gravel delivered this week for landscaping in the back yard.  We also picked up 170 bricks for the landscaping project.  My back isn’t going to allow me to do much work on that which I guess is ok considering it’s Mother’s Day weekend.  I hope to be able to ride my mower around to cut the grass at least.
