2 Kittens Adopted - 3 to go

Last night at work I got a call from my wife Joy. She told me that lots of people have been calling her after listing the kittens for adoption on craigs list. As it turns out, 2 of the white kittens got adopted by some very nice people while I was at work. I'm glad I wasn't home when it all took place. I'm kind of sad about the whole thing.

There are 3 kittens left. One is solid white, one is an orange/white tiger striped kitty, the last (the runt) is my favorite. She is orange, white, and black. I don't know if I can let that one go... Stay tuned...

4th of July - BORING...

The 4th of July has come and gone for 2008 and it was really boring. It's been raining all day and screwed up my plans to finish the repairs on my stairway to the back porch. I finally have the constructed and they look nice. The problem is that I haven't figured out a good way to attach them to the porch. My back porch is in tested condition and not really constructed by a professional (it was built by the previous owner I suppose).

It's looking like I'm going to have to find a way to improve the porch it's self before I can safely attach the stairs. Bummer! This should have been a 1 day job, but this is my 2nd weekend working on this monstrosity.

I was thinking of upgrading my Ubuntu installs on the 2 machines used by the kids (They're still running 7.10) but I decided not to fix it since it's not broke.

So back to my original title... BORING...

I guess that's it for now...

Lots of things...

Wow! Ubuntu 8.04.1 was released today. I may do a fresh install on my desktop just to see if it fixes a problem I'm having with Firefox 3.0

I installed a Mac Leopard theme and it looks great. Really liking the look and feel of things.
Joy got a new HP laptop with Vista (Yuk), but the Laptop is great. Very fast. Heck, it has 3GB of ram. That's more than my desktop.

Joy is warming up to Ubuntu a little. She prefers to do her school assignments using Ubuntu.
