Childrens Hospital…

So, my son was admitted into hospital, he’s only 2 years old and doesn’t understand what’s going on, all these people coming in and poking and prodding him, he’s got an IV stuck in his arm.. and he’ll be there 3-4 days at least and maybe longer depending on how he reacts to anti-biotics

this sucks

Father’s Day…. Blah

So it’s Father’s Day.. and it’s blah…

The baby (2 yr old) was up and down most of the night, when he finally woke up this morning I found him miserable and his face and neck are swollen to three times their normal size and he’s talking funny.

He says his ear hurts, so obviously it’s an ear infection and it can’t wait until tomorrow to see doctor so I had to call mom to come back home from work.

She just got to work and had to turn back around to come back home.

So she just took baby to Children’s Hospital emergency room a few minutes ago…

so much for Father’s Day… it makes me sad to see him in pain and miserable, I feel so useless that I can’t help him to make it stop hurting, but he’s on the way with mom to see doctor so he’ll get medicine to make him better and help him

a bit hasty..

So I’m a bit hasty maybe in my decision to just quit this site… it was posted out of anger, and like anything you should always be thinking clearly…

anyway, I need a new template now I guess as this one appears to be vulnerable in some way.. and I’ve got to re-upload all of the images as well as I essentially went in via FTP and hit delete to make sure everything was gone.. fun-fun

better yet.. c’ya

I’ve been a target a hackers too many times now, so I give up, they win.. happy now? I know some of you out here are..

screw it all… I’m canceling the hosting, and this site will be gone by months end when what I paid for already expires..

I don’t think it matters really though as no one ever visited here…

hacked yet again, the template this time!

this sucks… I hate you prick hackers out there

I did everything possible to protect this site, changed all of my passwords, deleted all users, changed the login stuff.. re-installed WP and it was still hacked

what I can’t figure out is why can’t the WordPress people do something about the site where it’s coming from, I mean it’s well documented all over the place, but yet no one has the balls to shut the site down?!?!? truly WTF?!?!?!

oh and apparently it’s somewhere in the template I was using as it’s not here, but I went through all fo the code for the template and can’t find it

replaced the template with the original version and the problem is gone.. but now my site is all screwed up… I can’t access any of the old content.. this sucks

bah……………….

Global Warming is a bunch of BS!!

Exactly what I just said, it’s all a bunch of bull-poop!!

It’s May 28th and I’ve got to have my furnace on, it’s going to be in the 30s tonight.. the Fracking 30’s!!! That’s just a few degrees above freezing and it’s a few days before JUNE!!!!!!!

I thought Global Warming meant that it was getting warmer not COLDER!

But wait I could bet that if you mentioned something like this to one of those experts they’d tell you it’s cold BECAUSE of Global Warming, and I could also bet that if it was going to be 100 degrees tonight they would also say it’s because of global warming….

the average low according to the almanac is 53F, and the record low was 35F in 1971

May 28th and the upper 30’s for tonight… there’s something wrong with the science there, if it’s actually getting warmer then it shouldn’t be in the 30’s a few days before June

This sucks, yesterday I was sweating, today I’m freezing.. let me guess, that’s because of global warming right?

Finally an update..

Yes it’s been a few days since I’ve updated I know…

I’m just so busy, I spent all day friday and all day saturday redoing my steps, I’ve got sunburn on top of my sunburn and the interesting thing is that my face only has sunburn on one side really, just a little on the left side. My right side neck is is all burnt as well and I’ve got an interesting tan line from my sunglasses and you can see where I had my gloves on as well.

But the steps are basically done, the main part is anyway, once I got to the top I found that they’re crooked… since the concrete was really bad I had to do the very top step as well, but that wasn’t very safe, there would be a nice 1 1/2″ bump from the wood right there on the top so I decided to cover the landing as well with wood, kinda like a platform on top. When I started it I found that the top step was crooked, I lined up the planks with the top one and started running them back but since the top step wasn’t square everything the planks on the landing are crooked now so now I have to figure out some way to make them straight.

I have wooden steps going up to my porch that will need replaced as well eventually, but what I think I’m going to do is remove the riser and run the wood planks under the first step so that you won’t notice how crooked they are, sort of an optical illusion type deal. I’ve got lots of extra wood cuts so I can play around with it to get it looking correct

so I was thinking just how much this little project cost me, about $350 in materials and so far close to 17 hours in labor, billing out at $25 per hour that comes out to more in labor than the materials cost, but still the cheapest quote I got for having someone redo my steps fully, ripping them out and re-pouring the concrete was about $5,000, so I think I’m coming out ahead. I guess it’s  a good thing I have the tools and knowledge to do this sort of stuff…

One big change will be in the winter though, you can’t use regular rock salt on wooden steps so I have to get the more expensive calcium stuff, and of course once per year I’ll need to hit them with Thompsons Water Seal, if I maintain them they’ll last pretty much forever

yeah I’m more than a geek…
