Still stimulating the economy or I should say LF is.  Put an aluminum fence with brick columns around the back yard, mega landscaping, and a sidewalk on the other side of the house.  Just got plans and an estimate for a free standing deck with pergola to house the new hot tub LF ordered.  She swears it will make me feel like a new man?

 

So what did I buy?  A JB4 tuning module for the Z4.  Makes it scoot a little more.  The company that installed it was not up to snuff on some things.  I had asked if I could monitor and change maps (power increase) from my tablet and they said I could.  After installation they tried the app on my windows 10 tablet without success. After waiting to hear back I called the module supplier who advised that the module is not compatible with Windows!  It still works but I can't monitor what power it's making or use any of the other features.  I had paid $150 for the module to be supplied with bluetooth for that purpose.

 

Internet okay here but I still don't have a cell phone.  Not a priority for me plus someone may call me if I did have one!

 

Leaving LF's place and headed to my house to blow pine straw off the roof.

 

So that's it for now.  You gents have a fun weekend!

Not touchin' that one... guess the washcloth worked.

 

Joined the walking wounded vinyl community Saturday.

Tweaked a back injury from the early 80s and have been taking very short steps looking like Quasimodo since! Last time it took a week to get over, don't have enough pain pills left from 2018 to get through that. I'm rationing them.

Someone mentioned WiFi coverage problems... I use a second wifi router (much better quality router) connected to my ISPs router/data modem, but also use Ethernet extender over electrical wiring. All A/V gear is on the Ethernet extender line and it works well. I was sceptical but happy with the product... Netgeat 1.2 Gbps extender. The biggest load by far is streaming to the TV and it works very well.

Howzit?

 

Wife is off for a week... fall break. She is doing things .... it will take a few days to figure out what all she did. She starts rearranging things and then complains when she can't find things. 

when I can't find something, I ask... her response is usually "Where it is supposed to be".... "And where is that now?"

 

Weather has been cool and moist [for here]. It can be cool as it wants, now. Nobody in town cutting wood, so wife asked around. One of her student's dads got some for us. Cheaper than I could get it for myself... $100/cord.... delivered. 1st of 2 dropped today

 

My hands have been busy. Trimming. If you don't have any to do .... you complain - loudly ... and if you have any to do - you complain.

 

Listening to Alan Parsons "Tales...". a new remastered version on spot... I have the first version on vinyl... Some of the changes are good and some, I didn't care for.

 

Anyone see the ad for the new GrandWagoneer? Bose has some competition in factory auto sound systems.... Macintosh has entered the field

I'll just wish y'all a happy Friday ... I have no clue as to what day of the week it is. It's a weekday. The junk calls give us a break on weekends.

 

Wife is still off work.... that's why I don't know what day it is. Appreciating those little speakers in the doghouse. They are nice sounding. Squeezing a lot of sound from those little boxes.

 

Hope you 2 are healing up....The list of what you aren't sposed to do is painfully long. There are times when we like remote controls. My amps don't ... disc players ... yes
