Pictures: This is from my storage files but they are not that old, I took this shot while at Blue Water Lake State Park.


Flickr: For any of you who use Flickr the change over from Yahoo to Smugmug is starting to happen. I have a Pro account and a free account. Today I changed both my Flickr accounts over to the new login and it went very well for me.

Night Folks



Late Post : I didn’t get my post done yesterday and only had it saved as a draft. I posted it just now so it will look like I didn’t post yesterday and posted twice today 😦

Studying Yesterday: Yesterday I was looking at Html and wondering about web publishing. When the internet was first getting started I build a couple of web site just for the fun of it and learn enough Html to play around a bit. So …. over the pass few days I have been looking over Html code again and man ………….. have things changed! LOL. I may do some more today.

Flickr/Yahoo Broken: I don’t know who made changes but something broke my Flickr/Yahoo. I was able to disable AdBlock Plus plug-in in Firefox to get things working again, So ……. either Flickr or AdBlock Plus one made changes and whichever one it was broke something. I am going to bet that it was something Yahoo did, but who knows?

Birds: My Humming Birds have slow down a little now, I guess they are heading south. They have been a ball to watch this summer. Anyways here are some more Hummers!

Exercise: Today I have not did any hard stuff but I have rode around the park a few times.

Night folks

No sun but still warm

It is very overcast today but man, it is still pretty hot. By the end of the month things will change a lot I think.

Exercise; I have walk my two miles this morning and I have done a little stretching. As has been the pattern of late, I will probably walk a little more this evening.

Oh if any of you folks out there still have a yahoo email address for me please drop it because I no longer have a yahoo email address.

Posting with Android

Sitting at McD and playing with the smart phone, while a cold drink.Getting better at  the typing with this silly little thing.Still a slow way to go, but fun to play with now and then.

The above part of this post, posted from my Thunderbolt phone with the WordPress for Android app.

OK, back at the RV and my desktop, much better! Had a good walk this morning, about two miles, added just a little stretching here and there. I am doing better with my stretching in that I do it in little bits during the day.

Computers;  I have added a new email address to my many emails address I already have. I still have one left over Yahoo address and I want to dump it. It has always cause me trouble with my email client Thunderbird.  My new one is at zoho.com .

Weather; Yet another hot spell going on with temperature in or near 100° . Too hot for my liking.

Work day

My work seen to come fast this week, but I am off tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a day that goes by fast because I will have lots to do. After that it is back to work for the weekend Sat and sun. Next week will be more split up with two partial days and two full days.

A couple of weeks or so after next  I will have to have three of my off days to do a little job down in Deming. It will involve setting up a couple of new computers for a club that I am in. The job that will keep me busy for at least three days. The best thing about it all I will be around many of my friends. The only down side I can see is that it will be a bad week for exercise because I will be very busy.

Food/Diet; One of the things I love about the Atkins Diet is that I can have lots of foods that other diets would not let me have and I can have all I want too! I am enjoying my eggs and sausage now mmm, mmmm good!  I eat very well on this diet and if I eat often I have no cravings on this diet which is great. I do need to eat at least four times a day and five is OK. When i get caught away from my RV it is kind of hard because this diet don’t lend itself too much eating out. I can do it but it is not all that great. I can do things like order hamburgers and throw away the buns but is not as good as somethings I would fixes at the house. At any rate I like the diet very well.

Weight; I don’t like to spend money that much but I will enjoy getting new smaller clothes. One of the best things about losing weight is being able to go into the stores and buy clothes that don’t cost more because they are larger, LOL, yes that is nice.

I will have a busy day today with a small rally coming into the park, I think maybe 12 RVs and of course we will have our regular guest. I hope I can keep up with it all, and I think I will do fine, I will just have to take my time. I bet the day will go by fast at least.

Email; Since I have gotten rid of my Yahoo paid account my junk mail has went way down. Good riddance to you Yahoo! Google sure has less junk, even if they do keep every piece of mail you send for a 100 years LOL! That is OK I guess ………….. if they read my mail much they will be really bored LOL.

I am trying to get a few chores done before work today, like my laundry and a bit of cleaning, both are much-needed.

Everyone have a nice day.

Things getting done

Today I got the truck cleaned up a bit and even did a pretty good exercise routine believe it or not! I have spent a good bit of time cleaning my tanks (flushing with water) with all this running water, seeing as they have not had that for a good while.

I have been reading again, and this time I have read about carbohydrate. You know there is more and more arguments saying they are bad. Some …….. no many, think that the recommend daily foods pyramid has too higher count of  carbohydrate.   I have made a move to cut back on my carbohydrate, I will miss them 😦 . They are so tasty, don’t you know?! I lost a little weight last summer and I would like to lose some more this summer, wish me luck on this one, please. You wish me luck and I will put in some hard work and just maybe ……….. ! I stay the same weight all winter and I want to start moving down again and I am beginning to make changes to do that. If you are not seeing anything about weight it means that there is not much happening because if I get it going down I will chatting about it for sure.

For exercise today I walk 2 miles and did a few other little goodies on top of my stretching. It felt good. I have a long drive tomorrow and I don’t think I will get much of a chance to exercise.

For anyone that is still using my Yahoo address be warned that it will be dieing the last part of April, so let me know if you need my new one. The yahoo one is a paid account it is not any better than the free ones so it is a goner.

Whoops, I for got to update my location. I’ll do that now. Here I am! Google will now know forever where I was on this day. LOL.

Wow for the first time this year I am using a fan (the one on my AC) for air. Night folks.

Back to work

Today is my back to work day and I got a few things to do today, but the owners have hire someone to do the cleaning so I will not have to do that any more, ever though I did not mind doing it. I am sure I can found lots of other office types things to do. There is always lots of stuff to do in an office if you just look around .


After my 40 miles this week I will take a day off and let the legs rest a bit and then maybe a short ride tomorrow ………. we’ll see. My knees don’t feel to bad this morning but still, I’ll just do a little stretching and call it good. I got to learn how not to over do things. I would like to ride the bike for another 10 miles today but I know that my legs need the break, so I will take it and also being a work day I don’t have the time for a long ride anyway.


I guess the rain will come soon ………….. they say it rains like cats and dog when it does rain here in the desert but it didn’t last year for some reason. Maybe it will this year. It is overcast here today and feels nice.

RV Stuff

There is a few things I need to get out and do to the RV but it has sure been hot and i sure have not much wanted to get in the heat and do the things I need to do. Hopefully it will cool off a bit.


One of the things I will mess with next week when I am off is to see if I can get my Email contacts fixed on yahoo and my iPod which are synced together. They are full of double entry and it bugs me …… it don’t hurt anything but it sure bugs me. I guess I need to delete both the list and start over. i can do that by exporting my list from Thunderbird and putting it into yahoo and then syncing it to the iPod. Well I think I can anyway.

Ok I am going to call it good for today on the blog so everyone have a great day and I see you all tomorrow.

Later John
