UGH! The thorn in my side! PART I

If you have EVER read my posts since I bought this house in 2005, you would know that the ditch in my front yard has ALWAYS been a thorn in my side. No matter what I do, it looks like this when it rains REALLY hard.

 Sorry for the kink in you neck but when I took this video I just got a new phone and I didn't know how to use it correctly, that is why half of it is sideways.

 Here is one that will not cause you any physical damage to your neck.

 I am currently 'modifying' it BUT because I LOATH debt, I am doing a little at a time. Basically, when I have the extra cash to do something I will. That is why this will be an ongoing project for a few months.

 This entry is about the new drainage ditch I built to replace the area I rigged up when I first moved in, and that was in 2005 folks........

 I 'modified' a runoff ditch I previously made with a drainage pipe I dug in the ground. I just dug it up and made a ditch out of old broken up concrete that was given to me b…

I guess this is a car themed post....

GET IT NOW? Driveway and garage floor.... Things that are used primarily for an automobile.

 After work, I usually eat a bowl of ice cream 1, play on my computer for a bit then, during the summer when it's hot, I chill out on the front porch swing eating pretzels and pondering life. While doing this, I looked at my driveway and thought, "Gee, I really should clean that." So I pressure washed it. NOW it's a long driveway so I did a section each day. PLUS, it's SUPER humid outside so I can only do so much before I need to go into the shade and rest.

 I also had some extra EPOXY floor paint so I decided to paint the floor in the garage. As the late great Gary S. taught me years ago, PREP is the key to ANY paint job. So I pressure washed and scrubbed the floor with degreaser.

 I stressed the word EPOXY because I SOOOOOOOOOO remember in the early 90's my dad, uncle Doug and I painting the garage floor at our old house. POPS decided to mix up ALL of the paint just…

A hot cup of JOE!

Wanna know why it's a 'cup of Joe'? There ya go!!! GOD BLESS THE INTERNET! It's not just for porn anymore! HA! Anyways, as most of you know, I like coffee but NOT PHU PHU crap like Starbucks or anything like that. I prefer CHEAP coffee... SO I decided to make my Keurig even more efficient, in truth, I was sick of always having to fill it with a bottle of water. I 'T'ed off my water line from my refrigerator added a line of filtered water directly to it. As my uncle Jim would say "I'm a fart smeller" I MEAN "smart feller". It's not pretty BUT it does what I want AND you can't even see it with the refrigerator in place.

I also got a new dish drying rack, I MEAN, dish washer. It's one of those "scratch and dent" ones. I got it at Lowes for $100 bucks! WOO HOO!

 I had to do some 'modifications' to the water line that supplies it SO I had to get under my sink

and do some soldering. Trust me kids, it's not t…

The Andy M iTouch and I am back.... PART II

As the four, that's as many people that actually read it, of you know, I have over 2100+ songs on my iTouch. here they are (PART II) and a line or two on explaining why.  Start 'judging' and critiquing the songs on this list in 3, 2, 1, GO!!!

Name- Goo Goo Dolls "I think about you all the time." 

Nasty- Janet Jackson "No my first name ain't BABY, It's Janet, Ms. Jackson if you're nasty."

Naughty Naughty- John Parr Just a great 80s song!

Negative creep- Nirvana I was NOT a big fan of these guys in the early 90s, mainly because they killed the music I liked. BUT I was looking for a song from them that I liked and accidentally downloaded this one. FYI- I love it and kept it.

Neon nights- Black Sabbath I didn't appreciate this song and how GREAT it was until the last 10 years BUT I ALWAYS thought the album cover that my brother had on his wall was really cool!

Never- Heart Rollingskating in 1985-86 that was held in our EFFIN' GYM!
