Well, with Thanksgiving done the Christmas decorations have come out. Most of the decor is up. Thanks to Jeannie, there are inflatable things outside and lights in the dining room and living room.

I have the tree up and lights on all ready for Christina to decorate with ornaments. I went with white and colored lights. Managed to get the colored lights arranged so the tree changes color. I'll post video once I have a chance to record and convert for web.

I have a third of the lights up in Christina's room. Hoping to finish tomorrow.

I can't find one box of Christmas stuff so a thorough search in the basement and garage is in order.

Merry Get-Ready-For-Christmas!!!

Time Flies

Wow, time flies. I have meant to update the blog several times and have pushed it aside.

I have kept up on pictures and the slideshow of Christina is current. And the latest pictures and videos have been uploaded and I stay not more than half a week behind. The cron job does not like creating the thumbnails so I run it manually, frustrating. I think it is timing out, but no error is given. Oh well.

Christina was sick and had an ear infection. Being a good princess she shared with me. I am shaking the last of it still. Started in the sinuses, moved to the chest, and now chest and throat. With a headache. Yuck.

What else is new. Snow snow snow, tis the towing season coming upon us.

Crap, I just realized I need a refill of coffee and I need to continue the podcast I was listening to. Coffee pot is not within reach and the remote is not either. Curses I have to get out of the chair.

Momentary lull........

OK, have coffee and the podcast started again. Maybe I should put a coffee pot in my room. And I need a remote for the iPod. Not a remote for the dock, 'cuz I switch rooms.

A reminder to back up your stuff. And check for updates. This last round of Windows updates needed a restart, plan accordingly.

Unseasonably warm

It has been way too warm for this time of year. Not a fan.

What's been going on. Let's see where to start.

Loads of pictures.
Running a backup, hint hint. Reorganized the pictures of friends and family. Made a page for us to preview the family pics. The most recent pics of Christina are also in the queue.

The file with the list of the pictures has grown to an unreasonable amount. I don't want to compress/uncompress the file when needed. I would rather find a better way to accomplish the task. Maybe a db.

Been doing laundry while doing the computer stuff and found myself tired of multiple floors. And I lost track of time. Does that mean I'm busy. Hmm.

Also cleaning house of all the software CDs. Wow, there is a lot of stuff. I tossed better than a dozen so far. I think I will also verify the DVD backup of pictures.

Christina was walking very well this weekend in her braces. I am so proud of her. She didn't want to go to school today. Seemed odd. Maybe she just wanted to hang with dad. I think I like that thought best.

Saving Box Tops, Milk Caps, Soup Labels

I started saving the various labels/tops to raise money for schools. I found it seems like a long time to get any saved. Anyway, if you save them and don't take the time to drop them off then you just wasted your time.

I also volunteered to help count them. I was surprised how many I picked up so far. If you want to help out send them my way and I'll get them to school.

Also been working on sorting the pictures of family and friends. Wow what a task. I started uploading the sorted files. Yuk.

Oh fiddle sticks, I just remembered I need to update the slideshow of Christina pictures.
