Tour de farms

Tour de Farms was way colder than last year, but still pretty awesome. (e:terry) and I left in the morning, and met up with (e:yesthatcasey) for the urban farm portion. (e:paul) rested up in bed during the morning.

Terry and I had to dress warm and sporty. It got warmer later though.

Ever since I replaced the chasis on my phone, the pictures are so blurry and overexposed. I think the lens plastic isn't as good.

Wilson Street urban farm. They have 25 lots and the one owner has a pretty intense beard.

The MAP chickens. I don't want to eat them but they're cute enough that I want to raise one.

You weren't supposed to pick the flowers at Ole's farm this year. Everyone who did got yelled at.
image
The food was really good this year. We had wraps from Ashker's for lunch, and I got bean salad and corn for dinner. Warning for next year, the potato salad has bacon in it.

image
Paul woke up at noon to pick up Casey after he got a flat. He raced out to Alden on his bike and we got to drink beer and eat with him.

I got to track Paul's Tour de suburb on the way over with Google+.

New job (again)


On Thursday, I got offered a full time position as a programmer analyst at Roswell. It starts as soon as I'm done with my contract - I'm so pumped that I get to stick around.

The only down side is I won't be in the web development department with (e:Paul) anymore, I'll be on the clinical IT team. But maybe we can get find ways to pull projects together.

This week we also got to soft launch the appointment reminder system. Four patients have already signed up. I can't wait to make it even better.

Happy birthday dad

For my dad's birthday we went to Curly's to celebrate. We had the best waitress I think I've ever had.

We were singing happy birthday in this picture but my dad really wanted to text a picture of the cake to someone.

Kenmore Dryer repair

Last Saturday, the dryer stopped working. The heater still worked, but the drum itself didn't tumble even though you could hear the motor/blower going.

So on Friday I decided I was going to fix it. At first I tried taking off the back, but quickly realized you couldn't access the drum from there. It did give me a chance to clean it out though.

So I looked it up and found a guide for Kenmore 500 series dryers here . To get access to the drum you need to remove the lint trap, the two screws in the trap, and then slide and pop the top off. After that, there are two bolts holding the front panel on.

When I took it off, I found the drive belt on the drum was completely slack. So I took the drum out, and found the belt tensioner was on the ground and the belt was connected to nothing. So I cleaned out the machine, put the drum and tensioner in , and reconnected the belt, making sure it was on the wear line. It took about an hour, but the dryer definitely works.

Here is a diagram from the appliancerepair.net website:

I definitely feel like I could be an appliance repairman if I needed to.

Deep holes

The UB med school construction is in full swing. The foundation they've dug is the second deepest hole I've ever seen. It's going to straight to the Allen Street subway station - I'm guessing that's why.

They may be good at digging but not so much at spelling.

Little rock city

On Sunday we were going to go to hiking at Zoar, but we switched it up and went to Little Rock City. I had never been there before.The rocks were ridiculous to climb. I only fell once. I should have known better when (e:Terry) wasn't able to climb it.

Finding a way up was always easier than finding a way down. Sometimes we had to jump like flying squirrels to the next rock and hope we could get down there.

At the end of the day, we drove over to the loop at the end of Little Rock City Road. Here there were even bigger rocks, and these gaping chasms in the ground you could walk through. It was practically speulunking at this point. Unfortunately my phone died - but (e:Paul) got some pics.

Climbing between these two was the most terrifying I think. It was the only time I think I felt dizzy looking down.

This tree was huge, and had remnants of a ladder. Was it the world's best tree house at some point?

Afterwards, we headed out to Taj Grill to belatedly celebrate Terry's birthday with my parents.

Veggie stroganoff

Yesterday (e:terry) cooked up some amazing veggie stroganoff. It was so mushroomy and made with a vegetable bullion on garlic egg noodles. The sour cream probably cuts down on it being healthy but it tastes amazing.

Bike rides and fanny packs

Friday night we were going to go swim at the quarry, but (e:Paul) had a migraine and broken back. So while he rested up Terry and I went on a bike ride.

image
Terry warned me not to sit on my nuts

image
Later we stopped at Coles to hang out with Emily and Carrie, who's back for now.

The classiest finger.

Terry helped Emily's friend Annie develop her idea to bring fanny packs back with an artisan etsy style approach. It'll be called Annie's Fannies.

Impulse and dudes

Saturday night, (e:yesthatcasey) and Masumi came over to hang with us, (e:mike), and (e:libertad). We spent hours looking at Dudesnude and watching the most redonk videos.

Terry's throbbing neck


(e:Terry) was falling asleep on the couch yesterday and head in a weird position. It made the veins in his neck pulse in the craziest way. Maybe he just has a really strong heart. (e:Paul) took a video.
