Weekend Doings.

Not much went on last weekend. Left work early on Friday to cut the grass, and it started raining as soon as I got home. Instead I installed a new thermostat in the house. Its a Honeywell DH8500 that will do auto change over between heat and cooling. I can't understand why this isn't a standard feature on all digital thermostats.

Saturday the wife gave the George and then the dog a bath. I watched "Dan in Real Life". Not quite what I was expecting. Very slow movie. I would have stopped watching but wanted to see where they were taking it. Should have stopped. Cut the grass afterwards. My FIL was talking about redoing part of his front yard, but decided against it due to the heat and humidity on Sunday.

I spent part of Sunday in the garage working on a dog bowl stand. We don't like the plastic ones they sell in the stores so I'm building one using 1/2 birch plywood. I rabbetted and installed the backing. I have to figure out the trim next and then I can stain and coat it.

Steelers game was a bit boring but they beat Cleveland so that's always good.

I've decided to start this blog. I don't know why, since I'm busy enough as it is, but I figured why not? I'm going to try to document some of the stuff as see if any one cares.
