Just been busy but FB has decided I cannot post to my wall for some odd reason and I'm looking at it as a sign I'm meant to start posting my stories over here again...

OK Computers are plotting against me...
The entire diatrabe I wrote after those first two lines just poofed!

I Kid you not! LMAO.

I can't even remember what I had gone on about already but it was a long long update and I promise to fix it if I can remember what it was about LOL.

Of all the things I miss most...

Gonna be making Hurricane shutters today. It's cold by florida standards and my windows are six feet square on average, but the front garage shelving really made a huge difference to the point I know have an upstairs work shop that's bigger than the original one I built down stairs to double as a safe room in storms, and it's very well insulated, and I can duct the clothes dryer exhaust heat into there instead of outside so you can work in a T shirt despite it being 40 outside. Got 20 pieces of plywood yesterday, Gratious from Ace Hardware in town to make up for a mix up sending me my Ace rewards $10 off a purchase things I didn't get for like 5 months, paid 25% of the cost of 250 anchors that meet the Dade County windload specs on Ebay last night, Stainless!, and now I just need to make a trip to Lowes for another case of glue, some 2 x4's and some 12d nails for my nail gun, and it should take a week maybe to make them all.

These will take two people to set up if a Hurricane heads my way, so I already had steel ones installed on the windows that take a ladder that go up in minutes and are a one man job, so in the event we do get a hurricane, I can make a quick trip to town to fill up the Handivan and my truck, which lets me siphon off gas for the generator, but if we don't loose power I don't have 55 gallons of gasoline hanging around the house waiting to go bad, or burn the place down LOL, and spend the rest of the day covering all the glass, and I'm set!

Hurricane madness shopping is way way worse than any Holiday spree out there if you have one headed right for you....

Almost Clean!

I probably shouldn't but whenever the wind picks up around here, part of me hopes for a good long power outage. Some of my best memories have come from power outages. Also I work in IT so my job would be either more interesting as we work to maintain our servers on our emergency generator, or I would not have to do any work, either way a win. Sadly the grid is pretty stable around here so no small accidents do not knock out the power and big storms only come around very rarely.
Dont get me wrong I dont want anyone to suffer because of the outage, but sometimes it seems that it does people some good.

Whenever I see news about hurricanes or tornadoes I think of this house:
Just close her up and your good.

Hey what do you think is stopping me from posting to my wall??????

I can post to anyone elses but and friends can post to mine just fine, but the only way I have to hang a post on my own wall is to post it in my gadget group then share it to my own wall...

Sorry, not much of a Facebook user, best I can do is suggest that you check security settings.

Did all that right after I tried it on a few other computers. Even reset the entire thing so only I could see it, then put it back and no change.

Really odd puzzle, but I like puzzles!
