Book Worm-ing

     For Christmas this past December I received gift cards from - a favorite shopping spot of mine. I like shopping there because I can often find used books in good shape and this year is no different. I decided to again increase my library and this time I chose the following:
  • Mysterious Universe - A Handbook of Astronomical Anomalies
  • The Ultimate Proof of Creation
  • The Mythology of Modern Dating Methods
  • Genetic Entropy & The Mystery of the Genome
  • Why People Don't Believe: Confronting Seven Challenges to Christian Faith
  • Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design
  • Dragons or Dinosaurs
  • Creation: Facts of Life (Revised & Updated)
  • The Questions Christians Hope No One Will Ask: (With Answers)
     I'll be reading for awhile - If I can find time.

     This past weekend we got some snow and as a result we needed to have our driveway and turnaround cleared out.  No problem I have a snow blower that doesn't want to start so with the help of my oldest boy, we shoveled, and shoveled and shoveled some more. Now if it warms up above zero I might go out and finish it.

     In the mean time, the temperatures here have gone from 50.5 on my new thermometer on Thursday to -22.4 Sunday morning.  It doesn't sound like well get much above zero this week and next week it sounds like the cold is suppose to come.  -22.4 is not really that cold for this time of year..

New Computer

     I've been wanting to upgrade the computer in our living room for a while for my wife and early last week it started making funny noises and shutting down and not starting up and......  I think it was the hard drive going.  So, I found an excellent deal, ordered up everything I needed, and on Tuesday, built a new computer.  I have most of the software that is needed loaded back on and was able to retrieve all the needed files, pictures, etc from the old hard drive.  This time I actually built the new one and it wasn't for me......

Wiper Blade

     Right around Christmas I noticed that the wiper blade on the drivers side of my car was busted so I bought a new one while shopping in Bemidji New Years Week End.  When we got home, I put it on and thought nothing more about it.

     A couple days ago my wife told me I should have changed the wiper on the drivers side while I was doing the passenger side because it absolutely did not work.   It WAS the drivers side I changed.  Apparently, the wiper doesn't like working when you forget to take the protective plastic off of the blade itself.  That said, It works great - now.
