Well, we had to close the trailer as is necessary around the first of October. If we were able to properly winterize it ourselves, we could keep it open till late October but the companies that provide winterizing will not guarantee that they will get it done before the first freeze if you wait past the first weekend of October to have the winterizing done by them. There are a lot of park models and very few providers of winterizing services. So our visits there are now done for the year.
I got a 2nd monitor for my desktop at home and had to re-organize the office to accommodate the expanded desktop space necessary. After a day and a half the wife and I have finished the movement of furniture and I am working with two 23" monitors. It is very nice when I can have both the source and the live view up on screens at the same time. No more switching between browser windows for me. It is an improvement and I am lucky to find the space necessary. If you haven't tried to use two monitors I highly recommend that you jump in. You will never go back. It is important to get the monitors together and to verify that they both display colors correctly. Not all systems are dual monitor capable but a new video card is all that it would take to upgrade your system to allow two monitors.
The days are getting colder now and it gets dark so early. I can hardly wait till the time change when it will get darker even earlier. My dog is dumb and will go after anything that looks like a cat - especially a skunk. Skunks come out after dark and I need to walk the dog every evening and now it is dark when we are out for the nightly walk. I carry a flashlight to see what is in front of us and try to avoid what ever critter may be there. Once we have freeze the skunks will sleep more and come out less so the risk will be minimized but I will still need to be aware of our surroundings. It is a major issue to deodorize a dog after an encounter with a skunk and in the winter it is even harder.
Well I think I have said enough for this post so I will bring it to a close. I hope all of you have an enjoyable and safe fall and are able to enjoy Halloween.
Till next post - Be well and be safe.
