An En-lighting Experience

Well I have to say that one thing that I have struggled with in the house has been the light fixture that is over the dining room table. I actually like the fixture itself, though someone else doesn't , but it had been missing one of the glass globes. So I have been on the hunt for a replacement.

Home Improvements So Far

So it has been about a year since I have been in my house. So what have I done since then? Well according to Kat NOTHING! Though I do debate that fact.

Of course we have the wireless and wired installed, which to me is important. I have painted the kitchen, the living room and my office. Installed crown molding in the living room. Put up a motion detecting light on the garage. Put in a new gas line for a gas dryer, and haven't blown anything up yet!

Snow and More Snow

So we had a few inches of snow here in Rochester over the last few days. Friday to Saturday we had 14" to be exact. It was great! I have to say I still enjoy that I get snow days, granted most of it was spent shoveling.

It was funny to me though that we actually had a snow day, as often times everyone is hoping and is simply disappointed. That is what I thought was going to happen, but as you can see from the pictures below we did have enough snow. I actually would have had to call into work if I had to go in, as I would have been running late.

YEAH Blender!!!!

Okay, okay, okay, so I am not any type of artist at this stage in my life. I dream about being able to draw so that I can do some neat things with the computer. Unfortunately the amount of time and skill it takes to become a decent artist are things that I lack at this time. Though I do try!

More Work on the House

If anyone had checked the weekend of November 8th they may have noticed that the website was up and down a bit. Well for good reason. My friend Danny Wegman and I finished running network cable, CAT 6 to be specific, in the house. Yes I have installed networking throughout my house.

Once we had drilled a bunch of holes, chanted a few choice words, and with Dan's expertise we managed to finish up the wiring. I am so excited that I can now get some speed behind a few of my machines. Some of you may be asking "Why didn't you just go wireless Tadge?" Well for good reasons!

My Own Learning

So here I am the first time in a few years a simple participant at the NYSCATE Conference. I have been really enjoying the experience, but I have also started to reflect on what I have been doing the last few year. I am starting to need a chance to work on my own self directed learning. I have been thinking about this for at least a year or so, and trying to define in my head what it is I want to do.
