Change Over

As you may have read, I purchased my first home recently and have started making some minor changes. Last week I started changing my mailing address with every company I have an account with that is mailed to my current address.

It was all very simply. All my miles and points programs were very easy to change. All my credit cards and other accounts were easy to change with a minor confirmation. Even easier was changing the address to my drivers licence online at Tennessee Drivers Services with a renewal fee. Of course, you know they could not all be easy. I had one difficult one and am still waiting on that one.

Yes, you guessed it. Time Warner which was bad before now replaced by Comcast. They took about 5 very long phone calls before someone was even able to get me set up in the system. You would not believe how many times I had to repeat the same information. Even after the 5 calls I will not even be able to be hooked up until May 12th. All in all it will have taken me over 4 weeks to get hooked up.


This week I was planning on going to to purchase my stove and over head microwave. Bad news, after they came to measure the hole for the stove they found that the hole was to big to accommodate any other stove. My only option is to get new counter tops that can be cut to fit the stove I want. I am also adding a sink to the equation since they will be custom cutting the counters. It is cheaper that way in the long run.

Of course as listed on other post, photos will be posted once they install everything. It would have really been great to video tape the entire process.


This weekend was spent painting the kitchen and the laundry room. There is still some minor trim work to be done, but I would say it is almost complete. 1 paint can down, and one to go. Picture to be posted as soon as the kitchen and laundry room is complete.

Dead Fox

This morning on the way back from a meeting I past by the Fox Crossing I mentioned on the previous post and saw on of the Foxes dead on the side of the road. It looked like the mom fox from what I could tell. Not sure how the pups will do. Hopefully, someone was able to save them and take them somewhere they could be taken care of and released into the wild again.

Car repair.

Had to put the old Jeep in the shop the other day. It was making a nasty knocking sound. I got lucky and my new neighbors suggest a place down the street. He said they are very good, but a little higher that the average place. Good part, they only fix what you ask them to fix. So, you do not get any extra charges.

Got my Jeep back last night and the knocking sound is gone. The cost was $220. Labor in that number was only $70. My front link Pins and and my stabilizer link pins were cracked.

They are great people, so give them a try.
