Well today was a nice day. I did a yard and some cleanup work, and I will have a day to relax tomorrow as they are calling for rain, something we really need bad! I hope it rains all day and that we get at least a good inch of rain to perk the grass up and give me some work to do!

Supper today was hot dogs and fries. If it doesn’t rain tomorrow I will probably test out that new radio I picked up for the buggy. I say that because I know what will happen. They claim rain is coming, but it goes around me, and we get nothing as usual.

Well I got the radio I ordered today! I ordered a DX3C from Spektrum for my buggy. I only tested it today but it seems far nicer than the stock radio and even my Futaba 2PL I got for my OFNA buggy many years ago. I am quite happy with it, and here is a picture I took.  photo 2013-07-30203839_zps9246a8d9.jpg

I did 3 lawns and started a cleanup job today. I have 2 lawns to do tomorrow as well as finishing this job. I need to put some stone down on that job as well. Supper today was leftover eggplant lasagna from last time. Weather was nice and it will be nice tomorrow as well.

Well I didn’t have any work today but I will have at least 2 yards tomorrow, even if one is a very small yard. I plan to do more if I can, but I am not expecting to get any more calls since we just got some rain but everything is still pretty much brown right now except some spots that are growing well.

Supper today was beef stew that I enjoyed a lot. Since I have a lot of time, I am starting to work on the recipes again which is a great excuse to play with my old computer stuff. I wonder what new stuff I will get this winter. It is very nice out and it will be tomorrow as well.

Well these past few days have been quite crazy. I had some issues with the Cyanogen ROM on the Evo not connecting to WiFi. I had to get that working but the only way was to redo the whole thing since applications I tried to use to fix the issue wouldn’t even open! Then I tried to root the Nexus 7, which was another nightmare. I got it working, but the toolkit that was supposed to back everything up only restored like 50 programs for me. So I tried to let Google Play sync them over, and it didn’t work either so I gave up and installed them all manually one by one.

Then I had a concert as well to go to, which made trying to get everything working just a bit harder yet. I worked on the Evo First Impressions post a bit which will tell the story of what happened in more detail. Plus I had to work yesterday as well, which I only did a few lawns but it was tiring none the less. All I know is that we got some rain finally, but we need more if I intend of doing any real work anytime soon.

Well I did 2 lawns today but one was more of a trimming job then a mowing job. The weather was amazing and I can only sit and wish it wouldn’t be 83 and sunny tomorrow now. I am not sure if I am working tomorrow as right now it is on the who decides to call me basis.

Supper today was fried meatballs that I enjoyed a lot for a change. I played with my buggy a bit today and I even ordered something for it that should be here soon. I am also still messing around with the Evo and Cyanogenmod as well. Expect to see a first impressions post soon.

Well here is a bit longer post than yesterday. I did 3 lawns today and it was very nice out for a change. I would have done more if I had more energy. It was only like 76 here and it was even nicer in the morning before the sun came out around noon. I wish the weather was like that all year.

Supper today was rice and chicken. I have some work to do tomorrow, but I don’t think I will have a lot unless people call me. I know I have some weed whacking to do and one lawn to actually cut. I will just play it by ear and see what happens I guess.

Not a whole lot happened today so I am afraid that it will be a smaller entry again but you can expect a bigger one on Friday if all goes well. Supper today was hot dogs and fries and the weather was nice but humid. I will be working tomorrow and it should be a bit nicer.
