I feel a little smarter now....do you? 90,95,69,0,B
A sleek, new, couch certainly made a huge difference. But a grey couch on a brown slab was not going to work, so I painted the slab mint green and made a couple of stencils to give it life. I discovered that once a stencil is made it takes a tremendous holding back to not tag everything in site! I tried to keep my cool, here are a few projects. This whole project reminded me that paint gives a lot of bang for a small investment. Oh la la!! And if you should be considering buying outdoor furniture, there's no better time for a sale than September! I chose 100% aluminium (no plastic parts) to withstand the harsh desert climate. I think it'll last decades.

It's no wonder that we needed a break from working on our homestead and blogging about it. But alas, second wind's tend to appear given adequate time off. This month we went back to work on the cement dome we started building in 08'. When the market crashed in 2008, and after a tiring year of welding, we just walked away unable to muster the energy to complete it.
This summer we got our permits up to date, and unlike previous projects, we hired a skilled contractor to oversee its completion. Today the footer was poured, next plumbing and electric go in, then the floor will be poured (cement) followed by spray foam insulation and a stucco jon in and out.
More as it comes.
Now back to the issue at hand. I am charging up the battery I use to power the wifi repeater and I just ordered another tablet computer with a portion of my refund. If all goes well (fingers crossed)...once I install the free Ustream android app, I should be able to broadcast far beyond 150 feet from home base. 83,91,69,0,B
John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Well...I couldn't find my long ethernet cable so I ordered 2 twenty footers for 14 bucks including overnight shipping. Got them this afternoon and solved my problem with the weathercam - sort of. Setting it up through WeatherUnderground was pretty easy, but for some reason when I go to my station and click on webcam it says "Missing webcam" but when I go to WunderMap and click on "webcams" it shows up. It can be viewed here. Also, I discovered my weather station marker on the map is off by about 2 miles. Since it is all sort of working now, I am not going to mess with it until I get a second wind and start all over from scratch. Live streaming from Ustream seems to be working fine but getting up close and personal with Ben and Javier is out of the question for now. I contacted the seller on Amazon about the long cable and although it says in the description that it will power a webcam - they said they couldn't guarantee it would power ANY webcam. Just printed out the return authorization and off it goes tomorrow. Speaking of returns...the little fried FlightRadar24 box got shipped back to Germany 2 weeks ago. As soon as I emailed the postage receipt, they reimbursed my PayPal account right away. It is nice when things work the way they are supposed to. 90,96,76,0,B
I am testing live streaming video here.
