Just ordered a Neuros OSD

Okay so I just ordered a Neuros OSD device. What is it you say? Well I provided a link so I won't go into too much explaination but needless to say it is a media device that can act kind of like a PVR/DVR/VCR, plus a digital media player and a digital media converter (great for turning your VHS tapes into DVD's). It is coming from the USA so I will have to wait for another week or so before it arrives here and I get to play with it. But I will keep you up to date on the progress I have with it.

Wind starting to die down

Oh my has it ever been windy these past few days. That is really strnge for this time of year around these parts. That is usually wind reserved for the Fall months and hurricane season. Well it certainly makes the bike ride home painfully slow at points. You peddle for all your worth and seem to make little headway. It has also meant that we can't take little Newt out for a walk very easily. The wind will blow her around, and needless to say she isn't very happy about being out in it. It wasn't quite as bad this morning but I hope it dies down a bit more before I embark on a long bike ride tomorrow. Or at least is nice enough to blow at my back on the way home.

Why so few posts Ian?

Okay so why have I done so few posts on my own blog? Well it is due to my attempting to keep 2 blogs going. This one and one for Newt my pup. As it turns out Newt has been pretty much everywhere i have been lately so I tend to update her blog first. I can tell you that I was able to visit long time friend Allison Duffy Friars yesterday in Windsor. That was great. I hadn't seen her in 3 years and finally got to meet her babies, Bruce, Jack and Harry. Very cute kids.
