I got geese in my yard! They retaliate.Finally caved and mowed the grass for the first time this year. I was finally persuaded by the fact that if I let it get too long the biting insects move in. I still left it long enough for the dandelions and little purple flowers to remain, so the bees were mad for a little while but as soon as I was done they were free to resume their activities.
Saw a lot of frogs and toads today too, that was cool.
Well, the HoldRites are supposed to be installed before the sheetrock. Then you just screw them flat on the studs and sheetrock over them but I did it backwards and installed the sheetrock first and then had to bend the HoldTite brackets to fit between the studs, which wasn't easy. They are pretty thick. I put them in a vise and pounded them with a ball peen hammer.Ron, the project is looking great! Those HoldRite brackets are cool. I didn't realize they bent at the edges like that. Might make my installation easier for the coper for the tub spouts.
My 27 year old autistic son got up to 409 two years ago. He decided to lose weight. He is at 242. He is shooting for 225. I wish I had his willpower.I experienced an odd odor in the house this morning. It was illusive and I couldn't find the source. It's quite windy outside and I finally deduced that maybe the wind across the chimney had created a negative pressure in the house and that when the wind subsided makeup air would be drawn in through the chimney (the damper and fireplace doors not being a perfect seal). I kinda verified that by opening the patio door just a crack and feeling an inrush of air.
I have made 13-14 hrs of intermittent fasting for several days in a row. I am trying to lose belly fat. In the past nothing has worked but I am trying chamomile and lemon/ginger tea before bed. The tea is claimed by some to turn hard fat into soft fat that can be burned. I am skeptical but have ̶n̶o̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ something to lose.
Today I am hoping the wind subsides so I can do some speed walking. I have sat around too much and tire easily. After only a couple of short walks (one normal and one speed) I see definite improvement so that encourages me to walk more.
