Weather Site

In the last few days I've spoken to someone about a good weather site I use (in addition to weather underground).  You can find it here -  It has many different options - surely enough to satisfy most demands.  Let me know what you think.

Oh, and here's another great weather site -!dashboard;a=USA/AZ/Gold_Canyon

No Updates?

I just noted that I haven't updated this blog in a long time.  I'm sorry, but I seem to spend most of my time on "".  I need to figure out a way to do both.  Hmmmmm.

Regarding the Tiny House, though, I want to replace the carpeting in the LR and BR this next summer.  It's only about 150 square feet, so you'd think the cost to be minimal.  You think?  I was told a few days ago by someone who replaced their carpeting (for a similar sized area) that it cost about $700!  Is that true?  What about those ads saying free installation?  Does carpet cost $45 a yard?  Whew!

HTPC at Meeting

I'll try to bring my HTPC for next week's meeting - will demo some software.  HTPC is a good use of an older laptop.  Let's talk.  Take a look at this site for a little software info -

Santa Claus Is About to Release a Christmas Present

A few weeks ago I received my Kindle Fire. A very nice computer, but the touch screen began to fail this last Friday. Saturday morning brought a few hours of Fire-goodness, but then the screen started acting up again. A search of the web resulted any many sites complaining about the Fire's screen problem. Enough of electronics with problems - today I returned the Fire and ordered the grand-daddy of all tablets - The Asus Transformer Prime. What a machine! I hope I get it before Christmas.
