Haven’t posted lately…
So I decided it’s about time to post about SOMETHING!
Honestly, there’s really not much to report on. Things are plugging along as usual, and to be honest that’s how I like it. No news is good news right?
I built a little directional Wi-Fi antenna that was posted on Lifehacker.com For some paper and tin foil that I already had laying around the house the return on investment is well worth it. We ditched our old router for this one a while back and it made a big improvement. But we’d still lose the connection once in a while. But since I added this, I’m getting 95% – 100% signal strength to our server in the living room! Not bad!
I’m plugging along on my next N64 re-review. I don’t really want to say what game I’m working on, but to at least half the folks that read my blog here, probably know. I will say that so far after all these years, the game has been compelling enough for me to want to beat it again before posting about it. A true testament to how great the game is.
I remember being a kid and loving and living for winter. All the snow, it was so pretty and so fun. But I’ll be honest, I’m ready for spring. And this has been quite the mild winter even! I’m excited to get out and work on the cars. We’re looking to repaint Andrea’s car next month, and I need to get my front end rebuilt on mine. I am looking forward to getting some flowers planted out front. And maybe even some grass to grow in the back yard! But I’m trying to stay realistic here!
I think Andrea and I have found ourselves a nice church that we both like. An interesting story… The first day we went apparently they had a “guest pastor”. All well and good, except the guy ended up SCREAMING at the congregation for the whole sermon. Truly one of those “fire and brimstone” preachers. It was an…. intersting experience. For example, part of his sermon included talking about a young guy he wittnessed to and later that week got in a car crash with (and I quote) “brains all over the car” and he sure hoped that boy had taken Jesus as his savior. Now don’t get me wrong. I agree with him in message…. but that’s a little more graphic than I go for on my Sunday mornings. The regular preacher seems like a real nice guy. He’s a little charasmatic at times too, but he seems a lot more sincere about it. Make it more tolerable I suppose. For now we’re going to keep attending, and someday soon we might chat with them about membership.
I do know it’s nice to be going again though. I was really involved in church back when I was in school in Ingalls. But I think I got in over my head. I was leading the youth group there, and even preaching sermons when the pastor was gone one Sundays. Shoot I was only 16 or 17 at the time. And it seemed like the church always kept asking me to do more and more. To be honest my memory is kinda vague as to how it happened, but over a short time, I just sort of got frustrated, burned out, and fell away. Getting back into it has been harder than I ever imagined. But now that we’re going, it’s so much easier! I don’t know about Andrea, but it’s a refreshing feeling.
That’s about it.
