• Started on the Kid’s Tree House

    Guide

    It is really not a real tree house. That is kind of hard to build and the boy's Mother did not trust any of us to do it. In fact it is based on the sort of deer stand that people around here build. Like those things it sits in the middle of a field, or to the back of a field. It is perched about ten feet above the ground on a little tower. In fact the tower is made out of old telephone poles. I got the wood, some shutters, the windows and doors from D H Griffith's. They are a demolition place and scrap yard. They are in fact one of the biggest in the country and they tear up all sorts of stuff and salvage what they can. I will drop by there on occasion and see if they have anything that I can use on the job. Of course you could do all sorts of stuff with all of that.

    The boys are helping me out a little and of course Jackie is big enough to do a lot of the job himself. His mother would not let him do any of it unsupervised, but she is too protective in my opinion. At any rate it is going to take a couple of weekends, but we will have it looking like a tree house by the end of this one. The roof is already built and on the floor, but I need to borrow a tractor from the farmer down the street to put it up. He will help me out no problem and with his tractor I can build the parts on the ground and then lift them up in to the place where they belong. He has a huge tractor and an excavator arm.

  • High Speed Internet Service in Idaho

    Guide

    I am living in Idaho, and for the past 10 years, I have had a fairly slow internet connection. I did not even realize how slow it was, until I went to a friend's house, and hooked up to his WiFi network with my mobile device. It was so fast, using the internet on his network, that I was completely blown away by the difference in performance. It made me decide I need to upgrade and so I want to view Idaho high speed internet providers and look at the different offers that are available from different providers.

    I really have no idea how many different providers there will be in my area. I live in kind of a remote part of the state, so it does not seem like I would have that many options, when it comes to high speed internet. But I definitely need to get something that is faster than what I currently. I am worried about the cost though, because even though my current internet connection is not very fast, it does not cost me very much money.

    That is great, because I do not make a whole lot of money. But i suppose that I can probably figure out a way to work a more expensive internet connection into my budget, and to make that work out in a way that is fine with my budget. I need to probably get a second job anyway, because I need more income. I just have not gotten around to looking for a second job, because I have been able to pay all of my bills in the past, and to keep food on the table. I know that my family will be happy about the faster internet connection, and especially my son will, because he loves to play games online.

  • Trying out This Little Trick

    Guide

    I realized that I had this old iphone sitting around and I started to play with it just to have something to do while I was bored at work. The IT guy is a real jerk about making sure you can not waste time on the Internet at work and there is not enough work to keep me busy. I had to downgrade ios after I tried to install it on the phone. It just was not up to the job or else I messed up the installation really bad some way or another. At any rate I had to clean it off and start over. That was fine with me, as I probably have around two or three hours of dead time every night at work. If I did not find some way to do something I would probably go stir crazy.

    It is not that easy for me to sit still and do nothing, but basically I have little else to do at work. I am on the grave yard shift right now, working from Midnight until 8 AM. In fact I have to stay at my desk until the other guy gets there and he is usually a bit late. My idea was to hook this phone up to a chromecast, which of course is very small and fool around with it to see if I could cast applications on to the tv set in the break room. That is something that has little practical application for me while I am at work, but I have been thinking about the fact that when I was a kid the PC I used was less capable than an older mobile phone. So you should be able to use your cell phone to do a lot of different things if you try.
