I’m At RAGT and a DVR Update

Today I’ll be selling/signing books at the book fair during RAGT (that would be the Reader Author Get Together held at the Marriott in West Chester, OH). In fact, I’ll be there all day and tomorrow, so I won’t be on line for awhile.

Gosh, I hope I don’t explode or something! J

I finally went out this week and replaced the family room DVR (which is working fine, by the way—yay!). While at Time Warner Cable, I was told about their new, enhanced DVRs. This DVR can record up to 6 shows and we would only need regular boxes on the other TVs to watch any show recorded on that DVR. Sounds good except… If THAT DVR went out, then we would lose EVERYTHING. I think I’ll stay with the three whole-house DVRs, at least until they have a way of copying (or backing up) shows. We’ve been burned twice by bad DVRs. I’m not going for that charm! Plus, I can’t imagine when all our DVRs will be cleared of shows. We’re not exactly speedy watchers. That’s why we record in the first place.

Yesterday the weather was absolutely beautiful (about time, too!). I took advantage of an errand I had to make at the base and drove my sweetie’s convertible. Yes, I put the top down. One time I didn’t mind going on that errand!

So… Got any summer vacation plans this year? Our summer is relatively quiet this year (just an occasional baseball game). We tend to take our vacations when the kids are in school (and it’s not so busy). Although, spending a week at a beach doesn’t sound all that bad. Hmmm…

Have a great weekend!

When summer gets here, I will surely let you know. But the plans for the weekend are to go out and get half-gallon mason jars and hit Barnes.

Happy Weekend.

Ivy - Half gallon mason jars? That sounds more like jugs! :) Hope you had fun at Barnes.

We did and yeah, I guess they are. Right now, all 6 are being used and I'll have to go back and get more, once they restock.

PS: Sun tea is brewing outside, in one of the Big Bertha jars, as I type.

Ivy - I never was much of a tea drinker (hot or cold). My tongue isn't too thrilled with the taste. Although I once had some peach tea, which was pretty good. Except it was probably loaded with sugar, not so good. Still, it was yummy.
