Antenna Up

Pictures: Here are a couple more of these flowers, I don’t see these a lot but I am not all that familiarize with the flowers of the desert.

Antenna : I have put my Antenna up for the MiFi device and it helps a lot in this location. It adds at least 2 bars of signal and a lot of speed to the connection.

Unlimited: This month should be a good test of my new Unlimited Verizon Plan because with the big Windows 10 (1703) update and my everyday use I am sure to go well into the 20s this month. We’ll see if I get slowed down or not. I don’t know how big that Windows update was but I had to restart it after 40% because of a loss connection so I can add 40% of it size to my data used. I am always supersized that Microsoft don’t have a way to save partly download updates in case of internet connections failing.

Privacy Setting: Windows 10 updates always makes you have to go though them again, but this time Windows Latest (1703) has gotten better about it. I still use a Program called O&O Shutup 10 just to check and there where a few things that I changed.

Night folks

The day is warming

The day is warming up to be a nice one and it feels food. I will get the bike out for a ride here in a little while, I may take a long one. We’ll see.

As those of you that follow my blog know I am doing the Atkins diet and this morning I was talking with a neighbor and I think he might give Atkins a try. He is not as over weight as I was when I started.  By the way my weight is holding on at about 190 lbs for now but hopefully I will see some movement before long. I seem to hit these spots on the lower end of this weight loss that just hang for a month or so and then slowly move a little more down. The last lbs are the tough ones.

Internet connection; is doing while now. The first day or two it was a little fussy (dropping out a bit) but it seem that it is settled down now.

My back is being a bit fussy this morning, so later today I am going to look into some good exercise for the back. Maybe a yoga thing. The cooler weather is causing my aches and pains to come alive. Warm dry weather is like oil to the bones for me, LOL.

OK, I think I will go take that bike ride now.  Back at 1:20; Man oh man, I did take a nice ride. I rode to Stanfield and the round trip was 20 miles, a fine ride indeed, will have to wait and see how that set into all the old bones. I sometimes over do things but it did feel good. I did do a little stretching but not a lot.

Just got a call from my friend who will be here today and he will stay for a day or two, it will be nice to have someone around I know well. He just pick up his new Arctic Fox TT, looking forward to seeing it. I like the Arctic Fox RV’s, they are good 4 season rigs.

I have thrown a few bird seeds on the ground and the birds are starting to find them. Next time I am in town I will pick up a feeder, I had forgotten that I broke my feeder last time I was out boon-docking.

On Track

I am again back on track with my exercise. I was a little tire after the drive over Tuesday and was still dragging a bit yesterday (even if I did get my exercise done, I still felt tire) but today I rode the bike for 8 miles and then walk a little over 1.5 miles and I feel fine. I had a great stretch afterword too.

I have put out my humming feeder and already have a few Humming Birds coming around. I like watching them and I watch as I set here and do my blogging. The feeder hangs outside the window beside my chair and the Humming Birds are maybe 3 feet from me.

It will not take me long to settle into a very relaxing state here in the boon-docks, I love the peace and quiet, it is resting to my soul. I guess growing up in the backwoods of KY and spending lots of time in the woods by myself made me a bit of a loner.

My solar is doing good but I may be in for some cloudy days here this weekend and early next week, but I have the generator if needed.

My internet connection is doing good now that I have set up my antenna and got the direction right. Takes a couple of tries to sometimes but them I am set.

I belong to a Club called Loners on Wheels (LoWs) and about anywhere I go, I see members of this club. I have seen two pass through here in the two days that I have been here.

Man I am full of one liners today, looks like it is going to rain a bit and that will be a good thing. I guess my mind is in short mode today LOL. Hell, I guess it is a normal day 😉

OK enough nonsense for today, later.
