|The ambiance (and aroma) of staying at a fairgrounds|
However, as it turns out, we do have some wonderful neighbors: Walter and Amy Cannon of RV SEF, Howard and Linda of RV-Dreams, and just yesterday Bill and Janet Adams of Internet Anywhere.
|Jim, Linda and Howard -Walter hiding and Amy out of sight! They took us out for ice cream. Does this look like an ice cream place to you? The evening will now be known as the Hunt for Rocket Science Ice cream.|
We also drove up to the RV Museum and Hall of Fame one day, grabbed Al Hesselbart and went to dinner at Lunkers.
|I think this must be a 'Lunker'|
So, Jim tore out the wood rot and quickly reached metal on one side and styrofoam on the other. It looks as though the damage was contained just in one corner around the fan (wishful thinking?). He treated the remaining wood according to RV One's instructions, then put up some new wood and put it all back together. What was really impressive to me is that he appeared to enjoy the work! :-)
|After Jim cleared the bulk of the rotten wood out of the fan area.|
As for me - I've been at the computer working on some new tutorial videos. Click the link below and watch this one OK? It's only 7 minutes long. It's about Blogger and how you can build much more than a blog with it. With Blogger's 'Pages' feature, you can make a regular website ... all Free - pretty cool. The video shows you what a page is, how to create it, and how to make a menu with tabs at the top of your blog. Then, you'll see a sample of a business website using Blogger - the one built by Devon with less than an hour instruction by me.
I'm leaving this video free as a 'Featured' video for a month or so. Of course, if you want to see the other 29 videos on using Blogger, you need to become a member for $39/year! And, we'd appreciate it if you did :-), that's how we make our living, and we love it! Check out the Learning Library to see all the other topics we offer as well.
One other project that has been on my list is eyeglasses. I haven't gotten new eyeglasses in over 4 years and I find myself squinting and going thru all sorts of contortions trying to read things lately. When you're on the road, what do you do about these things? We go to Walmart. I was actually very impressed with the professionalism, and the equipment in the Walmart Vision Center. They had several pieces of equipment for eye tests that I had never seen before. And the price was also very nice. $204 for eye exam, prescription, frames and progressive glasses using polycarbonate - the more expensive choice. It was a long time ago, but I think my last pair of glasses were over $400. It takes a week to get here but that's ok! We'll still be here. And then, my information will be in the Walmart computers so I can go to any one around the country from now on.
