37 degrees this morning, walk 34:27 minutes
Walk this morning was cool, but the wind has gone down considerable, which makes a big difference.
Pace was 10 seconds below my goal.
The weather has really been crazy from the 80’s last week to 29 this weekend and now back to the 80’s.
I don’t mind the 80’s at all, I wish it would stay there!
We are looking at projects we need to do with the house. As usual, it is difficult to find contractors we can trust to do a decent job. Home repair is kind of the wild, wild west.
We have had a lot of cases where someone does a quick, poor job and overcharges just because they can get by with it. There is no real way to find a reliable person, other then check as much as possible and hope for the best.
If they do a good job and overcharge, I don’t mind near as much!
Probably one of the worst was after we moved to this house, a HVAC company came out, charged a bunch for a worthless computer report that basically was a sales job and then had the gall to tell us a year later it was “time for our checkup”. they charged $400, we had it done after that for $100.
We realize to some degree “you get what you pay for”, and a responsible business needs to charge enough to pay expenses and provide a reasonable profit for the owners.
Basically as long as we get a contractor who who will do a good responsible job, and charges in accordance with their estimate, we are satisfied.
Another strong, really intense dream:
Sunday April 15 2018
Dreamed was at a Formula 1 race (not sure where)
Dreamed not really at the race but just in the area.
I got lost and wondered around a bunch of underground areas. I could see and occasionally hear a race car. I was completely lost and there was a lot of concrete, and changes in elevation etc.
Suddenly I saw a huge ball of black smoke from a big building near me and could even feel the heat.
I heard sirens. I woke up.
It was really an intense dream it took me a while to realize it was only a dream.
Major characteristics was the underground areas and huge areas. The black smoke is supposedly a symbol of some sort.
Still not temped to eat meat as I approach two months without meat. Something I would have never thought would happen a year ago, or even three months ago! Today will be another day without meat.
That’s it for now, Monday, April 16, 2018.
