I bought a computer for the 'dog house' yesterday

The only options I had was what size laptop and what features?

I got an upper end, so we could use that as the main computer when this one dies.

I spent over three hours trying to find out how to enable scrolling on the pad and every time I swiped the pad I had two new unrelated tabs pop up.

I just want to say here and now..
Microsoft....DIE IN A FIRE!

Not only is it completely different- it's dumbed down so you DON'T have any way of changing the factory settings.

BTW, that DIE IN A FIRE goes for you too H-P.

I'm open for work-arounds.

EDIT to add:
05-01 (happy Workers Holiday!) -14
I took the thing back and got a Levotono notebook with Android.
It works like my fone, and someone said on FB that it's based on Linux-

If that's the case, I'll get that Win-8 and download linux........

I broke a waterline last week

It wasn't marked and no-one even knew it was there. I was exposing our conduit and stuck a side tooth through the pipe.

It took then forever to find the right valve,,, and another couple hours to discover they forgot to turn off the back-flow preventer.
We couldn't get all the water out of the hole because the conduit was acting like a dam, so I went in (up to my knees in water) and dug under the conduit.

After we got the pipe fixed, I had to buy a new pair of boots as the others took three days to dry.
When I was wearing those new boots, my left heel started hurting- which I attributed to new boots.

Turns out that it's the way I'm sitting on the backhoe while gingerly feeling for unknown utilities.

F*ck politics for one night

In rememberance of old girlfriends;





And she wasn't so much fat-bottomed as pleasingly plump...


Then I got married...

Buy a Gun Day

Just wondering because I forgot until today.

Geting there

Some before and after shots of the workshop-



....I hope I don't have to tell you which is which.......









I had to murder one of the oaks right next to the house the other day, so I can get my midget penguin pr()n from one of the radio towers a couple miles away.
I spent last night out there so I could get things like dismembering the body for furniture or flooring when it's dried out and cremating the rest.

Technically... This is not a trench

Who knows why?

Edit to add:

And I found all four of those conduits scraping 1/4" at a time.
...WITHOUT even a cheek-full of Redman.

I drove the same S-10 for over ten years

I drove the Ranger for about four months and never had a windshield chip in either one.

I get the high Dollar Silverado and get two withing two weeks.

One is a crack I can ignore, the new one (this morning) is right in my line of sight.

So I guess I'll have to see if i want to pay of have my insurance tell me the deductible will take care of it ---and I pay increased premiums.

I just hope the window place can save my inspection and registration stickers....

Be sure you wag your tail real nicely

Oh!

Did I say that out loud?


I really think this other house...

Was built by a lineman back in the day...


From the gains cut into the pole to the old (ancient) cross arms with wooden insulator pins.

Hook-em `Horns

Not that I'm much of a Longhorn fan, but it's good enough reason to break the silence...
