And so on…

The usual story applies. Been busy. New stuff going on the fruit… looks like I’ll be in NorCal end of may or so. That’s going to be hard, as I haven’t been away from the kids more than over night ever, and I’ll be gone for 2 weeks. We had a ver’ beautiful day yesterday, and all of spent most of it outside. Screwy thing about New England – it was in the mid 70’s yesterday, 50’s today, and snow is called for on Sunday. Got lots done outside though, and we are almost ready to till the yard in a last ditch effort to get some bloody grass to grow out there.
The girls are doing well, hanging with Grammy most of the time. They tend to glom onto her for the entire time she’s here, which Gives Psycho Momia and I a break. It’s unsettling to sit back and watch them – makes you realize how much they’ve grown in ways you can’t see otherwise. They have planted the seasons first crop – peas – and check on them every couple of hours, no matter how often we tell them it takes weeks for anything to happen.

Bean’s birthday went ok. She had lots of fun and sugar. I spent half the party trying to find a part for our boiler, and failing. Luckily WeatherWise came through for us again. 100 bucks, and we were done and warm. I don’t have any affiliation with them, outside of being a very happy customer. Highly recommended if you are within their service Area.
We had some car trouble, and so on. It just keeps going.

Oh well, back to working on the attic.

Musical Blasts from the Past….

Feeling slightly nostalgic today, and Geekdad (from Wired) comes through with a pass-along from Wil Wheaton.
KROQ has a backup channel using all of their 80’s/early 90’s playlists and promos. If you are in LA, you can listen via HD Radio. If not, tune in and listen online. So far, I’ve heard Scritti Politti, The Alarm, and The Clash.

If you are looking more for big hair and screaming gitars, I highly recommend KQLZ – a tribute to the Lonn Friend programmed Metal Station from the Late 80’s/early 90’s. They even play stuff I don’t know.
