Halloween Decorations 2021

It’s Halloween time again, and we have our Jack Skellington on the garage, added some animated lights above the garage, black light strips around the garage and front porch along with tape that lights up in black lights. We have a few motion detected decorations as well to scare the kids, but nothing too scary. […]

A week after colon cancer surgery and I feel good.

It’s been about a week since my colon cancer surgery and I feel good! This whole process thus far has seemed to go quite smoothly, and I’m amazed at how quickly I’m recovering. The day of the surgery was the worst. Between the nerves going in and the pain afterwords, that was a hard day. […]

How did we find my colon cancer? By donating blood.

People have asked how I found out I had colon cancer. As I noted in my first post my warning signs were pretty minor. The only symptom I had was getting light-headed when standing. This isn’t too out of the ordinary and, even though it seemed to be happening more often, I just thought it […]

This combined micro USB and lightning cable breaks my brain.

How on earth did they combine a micro USB and lightning cable?! When I first looked at the gadget, I didn’t […]

Turns out weed & feed works!

We’ve used weed & feed on the lawn in the past, but this year it left dark green lines everywhere it was put down. You can see exactly where it was applied and where it wasn’t. It definitely is working and I guess the grass was very hungry. I used granular so knowing exactly where […]

Say hello to Monster, Oscar, Imposter, and Carl

This year, I’m determined to get a good crop of pumpkins. Meet Monster, Oscar, Imposter, and Carl my pumpkin boxes protecting the seedlings from rabbits and other critters. I haven’t had great luck growing pumpkins in my yard due to all the great trees, so this year I asked my neighbor if I could utilize […]
