We're drying out here a bit. Three days of mostly sun, without any rain. Today is about the nicest day you could ask for. Not a cloud in the sky, but not hot either - 24C (75F)

With the weather being a bit cooler than normal though, it's still warm enough for the furnace not to come on during the night. It's also not hot enough to need AC during the day either.

My electric and water bills should be lower than normal this year - at least so far.

(I don't know if its' the time of year or what, but there's been an influx of "crazies" on this other forum. Had to ban 5 just this morning. Lol!)

For us, Primary level goes to the end of June, with high school into exams now. University ended mid to late April.

These trolls are bonafide spammers from all the regular places.

Off to pick up some garden supplies and something to BBQ for dinner. I'm thinking ribs...

I always said that blocking just a few countries would get rid of 80% of it.

I have a window for a round (or at least 9 holes) of golf today. Tomorrow is rain and Friday the boss is off. Long range forecast looks like we're finally getting some heat. Not searing heat, just expected summer warmth.

Looks like the AC will be turned on soon. The guttersnipes are complaining how warm their rooms are. What can they expect from a western exposure. I told them I'd exchange rooms, as my office faces north. No takers.

One of them was thinking of getting a portable AC for his room, but didn't know it would have to be "vented". With casement windows, it's not an easy task. I'd need fiberglass sheet and, with the window covered in thing, they're be no breezes coming in.

Let me help the kids run your electric bill higher. They make em: https://www.amazon.com/Frigidaire-FF.../dp/B00VV2JV3I I suspect you have to field engineer the upper window portion.

Happy to be of service.

Don't slice anything but the ham and avoid the hookers during your golf game.

I've looked at the portable ones for him, because the way his room is set up, the units installed inside the window won't work. As mentioned, the main problem is "venting" the exhaust. If I can find a reasonably priced "kit" for our "wind-out" window configuration, I'd consider installing it for junior, but I'm not buying the unit itself - he's working full-time now.

Turned on the AC yesterday afternoon. None of the guttersnipes complained about "heat" last night, but it's just the beginning of the heat to come.

Had great drives yesterday. The rest of my game was off, especially from 50 yards in. By that, I mean, I'm typically better at 100 yards from the green, than chipping from 30 yards. I know, right? It should be the other way around.

Although it felt much worse, I scored a 46 for nine holes. :shrug:

I'll be heading to course for a little practice on the weekend. We've got a full driving range, a 100 yard (and closer) chipping hole, a short chip and sand trap green area, as well as a fairly nice putting green.

Brick or frame home?

46 for 9 holes, I would have been pleased unless it was all par 3 holes.

Par is 36, for 9 holes.

Brick - My brother in law was going to help by drilling an exhaust vent in my office for a portable AC vent, because of the heat generated by my machine and three monitors (it's surprising how much they can heat up a room).

These days, I'm only in my office a few hours a day, and with me planning to be here even less starting next month, I decided against the venting.

Okay. You see where I was headed with that question.

I have not noticed mush heat with LED monitors. Then again I don't have 3 of them running.

10 over par isn't that bad for a first or second outing of the season.

The three screens and the machine venting hot air all day can warm up a room pretty quick. In the winter, the upstairs is usually cold during the day - my office has a little more warmth.

I'm ashamed to say it's about 6 or 7 half rounds so far. It seems when one part of the game is good, the other two or three parts are messed up. I figure, putting it simply, there's driving, mid to long irons/woods, chipping and putting. Sand is another story. Fix one of the messed up parts, then the good part gets messed up again.

Getting all three or four parts working well, is something I've not had in the last two years. I've had a couple rounds where only one of the parts were messed up and shot a 41. That's about my best score for nine.

That said, fatigue can set in pretty fast and the back nine can bring out all sorts of nasty habits and results.

Your laments are starting to sound like me and the game I played.

There's sunshine outside for the first early morning of the week. We shall see what happens.

I forgot to tell you how I handled my waterlogged growing pot. Somehow the dirt had settled into and compacted in the drain hole.

After taking all the mud out. I bought the $ store el-cheapo kitchen sink stopper and removed the handle and rubber stopper. Then I placed it over the drain hole, round side up, ,covered that with a dome of gravel topped off with a piece of landscape fabric. Refilled the pot with fresh dirt mix.

Maybe this will help you.

Your way is much more elegant than mine. I just drilled a bunch more holes in the bottom of the pots. Drainage is good - at least so far.

Time will tell. I have 2 pots exactly the same and only one stopped up so maybe it was just unlucky.

Your method also sounds perfectly effective.

Moved some annuals around to accommodate some new perennials in the front garden bed. Trimmed some shrubs, planted a new shrub in a spot the previous shrub just didn't make it thru the winter. And then, I just stared at the weeds in the back edge of the back garden.

To get in to the very back garden (borders a forest and it's pretty shady in there too), I'd need a hazmat suit. The mosquitoes appeared to be mounting a vengeance attack on me since I put out the bug zapper the other day.

Needless to say, staring at the weeds them didn't work, nor did any physical activity to remove them either. Too tired. Need a cappuccino before going to get some bakery buns and ground beef for some burgers.

Later!

Sounds like you had a rough day.

For a short period of time I shared your misery. I replaced one failed tomato plant and replaced the crappy cages with my new design. Then I came in and vegged in front of the computer and fan.

Gonna grill a steak to share for dinner and try asparagus on the barbie.

Earlier we went to farmers market where they were charging 3.50 a pound for real tomatoes. Now you know why I spend so much time growing them. I would go broke buying them.

Double Advil night - sore back and neck!

All we're growing this year (food-wise) is herbs and some kale.

Nope - it's good to eat. Throw it in with some nuts a couple other greens, a nice light creamy dressing and it's a nice salad.
