The lilac tree in my back yard is mostly firewood. The tree collapsed while it was being cut down. The roots looked rotted. I want to remove the rocks and put in grass. Removing the tree was the first step in that direction. Once I get the lawn in, I will plant at least one lilac tree, and maybe two.
Guess it has been a little while. I've been working on my other domains. I tried to get TikiWiki to do my website on, but it just won't do what I want it to do. That is the latest for now.
The best thing I have heard in awhile:
As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools.
A friend of mine asked me to setup a website for her. It will be a website musical in nature, have an event calendar, some music and cool pictures, of course.
I started out with WordPress. I like how it is written, how it laid out. I had used it before and was willing to get back into it. After spending a night trying to get the calendar working, without success, I moved over to tikiwiki.
Tikiwiki kicks... er butt! (keeping it clean for mom) It is an awesomely powerful tool for running a website on. Another day and not a working calander, drupal was next.
Drupal would involve learning a whole new concept. It, along with tikiwiki, was almost overkill for what I was trying to accomplish.
joomla_15 is next.
Well, it took three tries but I finally got a decent fire. Disappointed I didn't have a love one to share it with. OTHOH, I did try a romantic fire, several years ago. But firemen showing up because I set of the fire alarm just doesn't do it for a date.
It took three tries. The fire one never got going. I had the fire grate upside down. Corrected that little error and made attempt two. It made a good show and just fizzled out.
Try three yielded much better results. I loosely followed the steps as outline by the blog of Tim Ferriss. It worked out pretty good. Oh and I removed that pesky grate.
My one disappointment with the fire was a lack of heat. I remember when I was a kid the fires where very warm. We sat across the room from the fireplace and the whole room was very warm. I got heat near the fire... but not much in the room. Will have to try it again.
