    Im flying to Florida and breaking your keyboard! ;)

    JUST KIDDING! (Love you looeswire!)

    I have to go look at this prospective customers home to see if he would be a good candidate for a solar (PV) install.

    That should be fun. Unless I fall from the roof.

    Also, I will be spending Sunday with a couple of PhD's under the hood.. That should be fun-er.

    More importantly, what are YOU doing this weekend Loosewire?

    As little as I can possibly get away with which means, as far as "she who must be obeyed at all times without question or hesitation, it'll be moving the satellite dish (as the ******* who installed the log burning stove installed the stainless steel flue right in front of the dish so no signal), 40th birthday party (not mine), securing the hot tub for the winter, taking the dog for a long walk in the New Forest (don't know why they still call it that as it is nearly 1000 years old) and some other jobs I haven't been told about yet though I suspect one of them will involve replacing fence panels and posts.

    I am going to reinvent the wheel:p Then I am done with that. I am going to watch a classic on DVD. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Kirk Douglas (1954). I have not seen that movie since I was a child.

    Seems like everyone is on their roofs this weekend. Moving a satellite dish is tricky without a meter. The alignment both horizontal and vertical has to be very exact. I'd recommend looking across the dish at a distant object then trying to recreate that view in the new position.
    <ed>It's also worth finding the mode on the reviever that shows signal strength. It's nearly as good as having a meter, except you have to have someone shouting the readings to you instead of being able to just look at it. </ed>

    Also lots of sleeping and eating.

    than a human should have for real. Some day

    Going to be an interesting in DFW area this weekend.

    You have Cowboy Stadium, The home field for the Texas Rangers, and Six flags within the same square mile or so.

    Saturday ... Arkansas Razorbacks are in town to play Texas A&M at Cowboy Stadium. The Rangers are playing the Rays in the ALDS game three Saturday. And of course Six Flags is open for their usual amuzement fare.

    Sunday ... The Cowboys are playing at Cowboy Stadium. The Rangers, if the lose Saturday, will be playing the Rays in Game four. And of course, Six Flags is open for their usual amuzement fare.

    The square mile or so, while essentially empty today (there was practice at Cowboy Stadium) will be jammed packed Saturday and Sunday. Some sports fans who came just to see the Razarbacks and Texas A&M, will probably stay the weekend for the complete sports outlook.

    I think I'll enjoy the games from either at home or at American Legion Post 81 in Duncanville TX.

    Should be an exciting weekend for sports here in DFW land.

    Duncanville is almost surrounded by Dallas in the SW section.

    Duncanville is at the junction of I-20 and US 67, about 8 miles east of where I live. There is a pool tourneyment at the legion tonight.

    Duncanville appears to be about 158 miles west of Marshall ... on I-20

    On sunday's I'm normally at a pool league competition. This week they are holding a tourneyment that I'm not attending.
