Hi all, another grey day in the palm of the mitten.

Rick, I just installed the SimpliSafe system in my mothers now empty house. It appears to be very well designed. The instruction are well written, in English as a first language English. The components seem robust and easy to install. Im sure if mom was still with us shed not be able to keep it running right. Shed had one of the Ive fallen and cant get up devises and it didnt work well for her with a multitude of reasons. Mostly stubbornness. This system should help keep the place secure until were able to get it on market in the Spring. If anyone wanted the system, Id get it through their site, not Bestbuy, you can get just what you want and they have special pricing at times.

Here at home Ive a plumbing issue to deal with. Toilet valve lever has broken. Fun...

Enjoy the day all.

Thanks, Rick, for coffee and Mark, for brekkie.
Another soggy day at work. Pool is about to overflow at home, must remember to drain it a bit tonight!
Might get some time to work on the living room built-in but who knows...someone might open a bottle of wine...
Have a good one,
Cheers,
Dave

Dave, I don't have any wine, but I do have Bourbon and Founders Breakfast Stout.
There's enough for everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Peppers are ready to go.

Cloudy all day but the temps will creep into the low 50's and then rain tonight in Joisey.

David, it's my favorite.

Karl, thanks for the review.

Mark, that should have kept you busy.

Mike, have fun at the lodge.

It's a long 12 hour day of work for me.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Mark, thanks for breakfast.

It's going to be cool on the Brazos with temps in the 40's and very windy. Brrrrr.

Toying with the idea of getting a 3D printer or at least putting it on my wish list. I have to decide if I really want to invest all that time in learning a new software design program.

Have fun,
Mike

Rain and fog in Michigan today. Really dreary looking.

If you do the 3d printer Mike, take a close look at Fusion360, it is a 100% fully loaded professional CAD system that is cost free for hobbiests and start-up businesses, not a Lite version like some of the photo grograms. LOTS of tutorials online and U-tube and really well done. Id tinkered with several different programs over the years but nons that worked for me like this one.

Fun day ahead, everyone have a good day.

Hello Crew, thanks Rick for getting us going. Thanks for the diet Dr Pepper which I will take with a lemon and warm.

The throat procedure is the second one in a month and I will be fine, just wobbly from the drugs which stop tomorrow. No driving, no solid foods and little talking, my wife is in heaven. The plan is no chemo for the throat just a radiation treatment and scan in February. I dislike chemo but if the decision is I need it, Ill do it again. Too young at 66 to give up.

The on-line buying spree continues since I am bored, my PayPal account is getting a work out.

Have a great day
TomO

Good morning crew,
Thanks for the "light" breakfast...4 pieces of French toast and 4 pieces of bacon slathered in maple syrup...egads! I have no will power..
Tom, best of luck with your treatment. Were you a smoker? On-line buying gets a life of its own - I usually go in spurts and it always starts with just one thing.
Have a good day. I am off to Dr. appointment to renew meds before heading out on holiday. Weather forecast calling for big winds of 90 km/hr. With some luck we won't be affected by the power outages that are sure to follow.
Cheers,
Dave

Nope never smoked Dave. 2011 had the thyroid removed and 38 Limp nodes, 2016 had over 100 Limp (Sp) nodes removed from the throat and massive chemo. Those were operations. Now throat procedures are just scraping of the throat area as the nodes are too close to the larynx affecting voice. They still are basically doing the same thing as the operations but now are out patient. The USA health insurance rules need to be discarded and start over. The thyroid issue while not rare in men is unusual. My maternal grandmother, my mom and my sister all had their thyroid removed and my mom also had the parathyroid removed. The doctors love me because I am such a novel case. Not sure why my wife still loves me.

Have a great trip
Tom
