Yesterday the wife and I met up with her parents and sister at a place called the “Hoffman House” in Rockford, IL. They were having a Christmas buffet and I’ll admit I wasn’t sure what to expect. I should have brought my camera, it was fantastic!!
The list of foods was enormous, there was no way you could sample everything so I didn’t even try. We had a great time, good conversation and all of us pretty much needed to be wheeled to the cars afterwords.
We decided to check in on the rig on the way home since it’s stored in the area and when we got to the lot my wife says “you have the keys right?” Ummmmmm nope…. so I’m heading out there as planned if I can ever get ahold of my brother today. I expect mouse body carnage!!!!
When we got home we warmed up the Norwegian Glogg my wife made which will instantly de-thaw anything frozen, heck you could walk the frozen tundra naked after a few mugs of this stuff, it’s awesome! We spent the night watching “Nothing But Trouble”, my wife still thinks it’s a bad movie but I still liked it.
My brother gave me a geek toy for my computers called a video “TruLink” that effectively turns any VGA capable TV into an extended display for your computer. Only problem, it only works with XP and Vista!! Their Windows 7 solution is only good for causing BSOD’s (Blue Screen Of Death) which renders it useless to me until they get the software sorted out. I do have one Vista machine I built years ago and it’s so stable I have had no need to upgrade it, so this product works perfectly on it of course, but its in the basement so again, does me no good.
If they can sort out their Windows 7 issue (not Microsoft’s problem) then I can use this on the RV to watch video from my computer so I’m crossing my fingers!
The Bears are getting ready to play so off I go! I’ll end up listening to most of it on the radio until I get to the RV, maybe they’ll be broadcasting it so I can watch it as I clean up mouse bodies. I won’t take pictures of them, just seems wrong to do so. Anyway, have a great day everybody!
EDIT: Caught one lousy mouse, they cleaned off almost all of the traps clean without getting caught. The one I caught was in one of the enclosed traps, just wow, what a bummer
