Just got back from the Bluegrass festival. Fun fun. I played with snakes. :) I didn't Seuss last night, and probably won't check tonight. I think it's pretty stressful for him. I'll try to do a daytime check tomorrow, and if that's unsuccessful I'll drag him out of bed.

I'm jealous! If I didn't live across the country is have been there too! Glad you had a good time, but real snakes?

Well, after procrastinating for ever, we finally started our exodus from the analog world into digital. Two weeks ago I acquired a new digital camera. I had had one since 2005, but this is way beyond the quick point-and-shoot one (which died).

Over the past week, I liquidated a large number of Aeroplan frequent flyer points, turning them into gift cards.

A makeover of our living room entertainment stuff resulted. We replaced an eleven-year-old 27" CRT television with a 42" 1080p LCD one. We replaced our equally old DVD player with a Blu-Ray one. We put it all on a new stand, replacing the one I got in 1978. Yes, you read that correctly. For the moment, the turntable is stored, but it will come back at some point so I can transfer the remaining vinyl to digital bits.

The view mid-day Saturday:

The TV is operating on the SD analog signal. HD Digital will be coming soon. Even so, the picture quality is great, compared to the CRT.

The 27" CRT replaced a 19" CRT in the master bedroom. The 19" version, acquired in 1982, will be recycled.

Wow! I still have all my old analog stuff! Even a turntable and vcr (neither of which is hooked up, however). Figured I'd worry about replacing my tv if I ever started watching tv again...

Wee bit sunburnt here. Spent the afternoon watching the pirate clean the bottom of his boat. My role was mainly to hand him things and listen to him swear when he dropped them. :)

Wow Peter! LOVE the update. You should take some of those LP's and frame the covers if they're vintage 60's and 70's (like us). ;)

But where did the squirrels go? :huh: They're in the top pic but not the bottom.


We just updated our family room TV to LCD a couple of months ago. I thought we were the last ones but I guess not. We only got the one new TV, so the TV in the bedroom and the one in the basement that the kids use when we tell the to "go away, this show isn't for you" is still the old stuff. St Vincent DePaul wouldn't even take our old TV (and it was nice, cable ready, still working . . . and heavy as he11).

It looks nice, Peter.

Must bring them back. They migrated to another room as the activity started, and are still there. They are shy of noise and action.

Looks terrific, POeter.... .. ..and yes, get that li'l squirrel back in there. I see you've got many woodland creatures congregating -- racoons, bears ... . ..... ..a veritable Canadian landscape. The only thing missing seems to be an empty Molson Ex bottle.... . . .but I suppose around these parts it would only be a Redbridge....

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

PeOte, the entertainment center looks great! We have the same size TV (bought it in Texas) --you're gonna love it.

Speaking of TV, is anyone watching the new "Dallas" ? We were fans of the old one and are really enjoying this new version.

For all those concerned about the critters, the squirrel and beaver have returned to their home.

Have been gluten free since April 2008. The only reason I did this was to make cooking at home easier since my husband has been a Celiac since 2000.

As to why I'm called Ward Girl only Nick and I know the reason :-)
