Gas Prices

Gas prices over $2.79 and working it way up, but I have not heard near the same amount of complaints I heard in 2006.

Have we all gotten accustomed to the prices or just figured it was a no win battle? I haven’t even heard Zack Perry complain about gas prices.

Will gas prices soon hit $3? Will the usual summer increase happen? Why are gas prices going up now, especially since barrel prices have decreased?

You thoughts and answers.

When to quit?

How long should someone not update their blog before they should just take it down? 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, etc.

Lately, I have seen more and more blogs that have been dormat for over 4 months. Is this a growing trend?

What are your thoughts?

Florida Rentals

Summer time is near. Tired of the same old vacation spots. Go to Perdido Key, Florida and stay Seapray Condominiums. It is a nice family spot about 5 miles from Gulf Shores, AL. Not only that, but you are only a few miles away from the Florabama.

The above photo shows the 3 Seapray Condominiums. Be sure stay at the one on the beach on the right hand side. All 3 are currently closed, but will be open soon. They are all being remodeled after Katrina hit a few years ago.

Nico Napping

About 2 weeks ago, while I was helping babysit Nico I took him for a walk in his stroller. When I got back, I realized that he had fallen asleep. Below is a shot of him taking a nap. That is him pictured below with his little hat to block the sun from his eyes. It must have done a good job, because it put him to sleep.

Fox Hole

On the way to my new house I normally see a sign that says “Fox Crossing”. I never really realized why it was there, until the other day. I actually saw 3 foxes on the side of the road. One was a mom with its 2 baby foxes. They have a burrow that is about 10-20 feet long just 10 feet from the main road.

The crossing is located on Massey by some apartments. More photos can be found at Flickr.

Time for the Harvest.

I started working on the kitchen and laundry room to the new house this past week. So far I have changed half of the hinges and all the handles to the kitchen and laundry room cabinets. I have also removed the stove and range and the cabinet right above it. Based on the photo below, you will understand why. A new one will be installed hopefully in the next week or so.

The one pictured below is a nice popular Harvest Gold from the 70’s. I would have held off on replacing it, but it was cover in grease on the inside. The Venta Hood also looked like the filter was not changed in a long time.

I meant to take picture of the space after I removed it, but forgot. I will be sure to post that later this week.

Home Owner

Well, it is official. I am now a home owner. I signed my paperwork and paid my closing cost yesterday and will be able to walk in the front door tomorrow at 8 am.

If you need my address, feel free to email me and I will be glad to give you my address as long as I know who you are.
