Backyard Gardening


We did a ton of backyard gardening yesterday. (E:terry) and I hit elbers on Main st and got some nice plants. We got such a great deal with a groupon terry had.

We managed to find pink lemonade blueberries? I am curious how those will grow but slightly nervous they are going to contaminate all my blue ones if there is some sort of cross polination.

(e:robert) helped us out a bunch. This year I realized I could transport stuff around the yard in sleds. Made life a lot easier. Especially on bumping grass.

Dinner Last Night - Fried Coconut Taro Spring Rolls


(e:robert) and I made a really good seafood dinner with coconut cream and taro spring rolls. We got them frozen at the Asian grocer on Rhode Island and niagara. They were amazing.

We paired that with tuna, shrimp, chicken, salad and lima beans.

New Bed


Finally after almost 4 months of waiting the American made, solid maple bedroom set is completed. I guess I was willing to wait for an American made product. (E:terry) teases but at the store I smelled every set we looked at and this one didn't smell at all which is what sold it for me.

Now I want the nightstand.

Turkey in Bowmansville

It walked right up to my window. I think it wanted to eat my phone.

Joe's Crab Shack


Went to Joe's crab shack with (e:zooey). she is obsessed with lobster. The first thing she asked was when we were going to get lobster. I love the crab daddy bucket with the fire grill seasoning.

Samsung Experience Store


Samsung is building a Samsung Experience Store at Best Buy. I live samsung products but I can't believe they let you see it in this ghetto pre-state.

Bye bye real servers


ugh what a 14 hour work day. I programmed so much stuff by 4:30 when I went to test something it ran rather slowly. I was surprised with the performance as it wasnt a complex task. Turns out the write cache battery on both our remaining physical servers died which rendered the caches disabled. The performance went from 400+MB/s to like 40MB/s. I wonder if other people are experiencing the same thing.

Anyways I had been working on virtualzing them for a while and decided tonight it had to happen. There was no way I was facing a slow server day during business hours tommorow so I just powered through.

There was so much complexity involved that I wish someone else was around to experience it with me. I have no idea how I ended up being a person who does everything but I do. I manage almost 15 servers now, thank god all the rest are virtual. I hope to delgate that a bit once I'm a manager.

In the end I like the virtual servers so much because its so easy to upgrade then and clone them for testing. Lets just hope performance is awesome in the morning when there are 500+ simultaneous users hitting the apps and I am just waking up from this.

Mothers Day 2013


We had a very success Mother's day despite the weather. We started out with a tour of the Knox Family summer house mansion which was the Junior League show house this year. It was quite cold and blustery outside but the inside was pretty interesting. It must have been amazing to live on that giant farm property in such luxury. I wonder what it was like to be a Knox.

When we got out we made fried basket cheese on french bread as an appetizer. Its my mothers favorite kind of cheese.

Afterwards we had the full on bbq on the new grill at my house. We had to carry it back to the front porch because of the hail.

We grilled shrimp, lobster, chicken, italian sausage along with lima beans, string beans, fried brussel sprouts with parmesaen, asparagus, baked potatoes, and salad. We also had this really amazing raspberry and wine cheese.

For dessert we had banana bread and eclair with real whip creme. (e:mike) was disappointed because he loves cool whip.

To drink we had champagne with st germain and blackberries along with red wine.

This morning I went to the store to get flowers but after waiting 15 minutes in line I realized I had forgotten every form of purchase power and had to go back home to get money. As we were running out of time (e:mike) and I made a bouquet out of flowers from the garden. We also gave my mother a rose cutting I rescued from my grandmothers garden before we sold her house.

I think she had a great day.

O3 On Elwmood for Lunch


(e:robert) and (e:mike) and I went to lunch at o3. I am in love with their caper and citrus tuna sandwich. I literally licked the plate clean.
