“Nothing much to write about

July 4, 2001

“Nothing much to write about today. Had a nice breakfast with Niki then we

went to a 4th party that her dad was giving. He is a member of the Water Commission

and the party was for the members and their family. Gene made a wonderful smoked

turkey and her mom, as always, made some great food that was scarfed down and

discussed for the rest of the evening. I wish I could cook like that. after

that we went to my mom`s place for hamburgers and to watch the fireworks from

Lake Winnie. The neighbors` show was far better than what little we could see

from the amusement park. I have some friends who live nearby and maybe they

put on the show. Maybe….

Did I mention that it was hot? Way too hot to even play horseshoes at her parent`s

house. Too hot to play baseball with nephews and such. But, we did all of the

above and had a great time doing it.

Mom`s computer is dead. So she is going to get Victor, the HP p166 machine.

So this weekend will be spend getting it ready for her and by Sunday she will

have a new (to her) machine. So that means one less system in the house…oh

wait, she has the system that is the twin to MadCow, so maybe I can get a simple

system together with that case and get my Grandmother a computer as well. Hmmm,

time to see what I can build to clear out my home from all of this stuff.

I`m having some database issues with this site. The news engine worked at work

with a conversion from the 97 format to the 2k format. Did the same here and

it didn`t work. There are a few funny things happening, that will be fixed this

weekend. I`m hoping to have the archives back and organized this weekend. This

new news engine doesn`t have archiving built in, so I`m going to break it down

each weekend.”
