let's catch up

Good morning.
Wow! I can't believe it's been nearly a week since I've posted. Probably because not much to say. But I'll catch you up with what little has happened.
It ended being a fairly busy week. We've actually had a few spring like days.   :-)
40 on Sunday, and near 50 on Monday.  :-)
Today, 40, but then back into the cold for a few days, before warming again. At least it feels like spring will eventually come.
We still have a lot of snow on the ground, although the amount has been reduced a bit thanks to the few warm days.
I tried a new thing this weekend, Kale chips. You'll find the recipe here.

I was skeptical of this at first. How are some dried leaves going to taste good. But I was dead wrong!
These Kale chips are tasty and as addicting as potato chips. And a whole lot better for you.
I also spent part of the weekend researching why a customers puter is taking so long to start. I discovered that he had installed the AVG toolbar when he installed the anti virus software. That causes every part of AVG to start on start-up. Removing the toolbar did the trick without making his puter any more vulnerable. From my experience, never install any one's toolbar. You don't need them.
Another reason I've been absent from blogging, is I've been spending a lot of time on the puter and phone, booking another trip to Vegas. We are actually going to look at individual homes this time, and maybe even buy one.  I've finally convinced Craig that prices will only continue to rise, and if we wait until we retire, we may not like our choices then. And in the mean time, we can hire a management company to rent it out until we're ready to move.
So.... between making airline reservations, hotel and lining up a real estate agent, I've been a busy boy.
One nice thing, I was able to get us 3 nights at the New York New York Casino Hotel for free!
Remember last fall when we went to Vegas, and I had some comps for free food? Well, we were able to do that just from playing a Facebook game called My Vegas Slots. For no cost what so ever, you collect gold coins playing the game that you can redeem for real stuff in Las Vegas, like food, shows, and even rooms. Well, since last fall, just by Craig and I casually playing the game, We had accrued enough points for a free 3 night stay! So that helps reduce the cost of the trip.
So anyway, we're all caught up for now.
