126 hours on this outage and counting. They were offereing to let some folks buy their domain names back for $75. I’m not so sure I would trust sending them any more money at this point.
What is it that made me waste most of my Sunday watching it on TV? I watched all the way until Tiger had it in the bag, then I tuned out, not because I didn’t want him to win, heck I hope he wins it again next year, but I just couldn’t care once it stopped being a golf match and started to be just watching some one play meticulous golf. I don’t golf, I don’t watch golf and I can barely name a golfer besides Tiger. I suppose that I watch because I have been on the course. When we first moved to Aiken we went over and bought practice round tickets back when they sold as many tickets as people who showed up. It was especially fun to go over with relatives who visited. Both my brother and brother-in-law are golfers so they were a real kick because they knew the players and they knew the history.
But about 6 years ago they went to a lottery drawing for the privilege to buy practice round tickets. The first 2 years we got selected, but for the past 4 years, no dice. Everyone says that locals don’t get picked anymore because they make more money from out of towners. Bah, the course doesn’t care, doesn’t matter where you are from you still pay the same $2 for a palmetto cheese sandwich. The members don’t care because they don’t own hotels or restaurants in the area, heck most of them aren’t local anyway. I think the real reason I don’t get practice round tickets anymore is that the Masters’ Secret Police found out I don’t even like golf.
102 hours and counting….I think they ran out of money and didn’t pay their T1 bill.
78 hours and counting….
No joy on the $220 million…..on the bright side no one else won either….approximate worth for Tuesday’s drawing, $300 million. Put the top down to go to lunch, but put it back up while we were inside at Ruby Tuesdays. Good thing too as it rained a bit during the time we were in there. Put it back down this evening for our 3rd trip to Lowes in less than 24 hours. We bought still more plants for Donna to decorate the yard with. Plus we bought a small plastic square hose reel to keep the hose hidden when not in use. Also it will allow us to relocate the thing over towards the garage door so I won’t drag it over the planting bed squashing the flowers.
Started up, went down, went back up, went back down, still down.

I was not lucky on the AC Panel, didn’t get it today. That is OK, as I want to save up some luck for tonight’s lottery drawing, the jackpot is at $220 million. We splurged and bought 4 tickets instead of the usual one, thereby increasing our odds from 1 in 76 billion to 1 in 19 billion. So if you come back tomorrow and this hasn’t been updated it means one of 3 things, 1) I won, 2) I’m dead or 3) both. 🙂
Started down, went up, went down, went back up, still up.

54 hours and counting. I know this is an easy one, but hey, the only other thing I got is Rspeed didn’t get me my AC Panel in time for a weekend install and that is really not bad considering they just got them in on Thursday.
