Never mind . . .

Today was really nice, the first time I’ve been able to sleep in for about a week. What with Clear Lake trips, moving to a new park, and other stuff, it’s just been go, go, go.

In fact, we never left the rig at all today, and maybe not tomorrow either.

I mentioned yesterday how nice this park, Hillcrest RV Park, is. But I do have a small gripe. The Verizon signal is pretty weak. I was hoping for better since there’s a cell tower right down the road, but apparently it’s not a Verizon tower. Oh Well.

They do have park WiFi here, but since I haven’t been able to find anyone to pay, I haven’t been able to get the code.

I really like my new printer, a HP 4650 Wireless Printer.

HP 4650 Printer 2

It’s well worth the $70 cost, with edge to edge printing, an auto document feeder, and automatic two-sided printing.  It’s also much faster, but for a different reason than you might  think. It is marginally faster, 9.5ppm vs. 8.5ppm, compared to my old printer, but that’s not the real difference.

The way most people judge a printer’s speed is how soon the page comes out when they hit the PRINT button, because they usually only print 1 or 2 pages at a time. So the fact that their printer can crank out 9.5 ppm really means nothing.

No, the real speed issue for most people is what’s known as TTFP, or Time To First Page. In other words, how soon that first page comes out. And in this case the TTFP for the 4650 is over twice as fast as my old printer. So that’s the real difference.

A while back we came across this old photo of Jan. She thinks it was in the 1st or 2nd grade. It’s about the size of a postage and was rolled up in a tight  scroll. So flattening it out and scanning it, I had this.

Jan !st or 2nd Grade

But after about a hour or so with Paint Shop Pro (a Photoshop clone) I had this.

Not bad. She’s was a cutie even back then.

If you were worried about tomorrow’s prediction of the end of the world, David Meade, the Biblical Numerologist who announced that The End Is Nigh, says,


Apparently the End Is Still Nigh, not just as Nigh as was predicted. But it’s still coming, he said.

You can count on it.

Thought for the Day:

The older I get the less I care what people think of me, therefore the more I enjoy life.
