Monday Photo Dump!

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the start of the week! We did quite a bit this weekend. Friday we went to Pizza Hut with my parents for dinner and Everett was being a normal goofball.


Saturday morning we headed back to the cabin. We are hoping to have the beds in before the start of the hunting season. We added stairs to the front and added boards to the ceiling. Some of the wall pieces are missing, because they are all pieces we have to cut to a custom size.


This area will be the bed room, with bunks on the right and left.


This next one is looking from the kitchen area to the bedroom. We have that half wall up to divide the room.


While I was at camp my wife’s two friends came into town. One of them has a little three month old. We got ready and went to the county fair for a few hours.



Next is a must have golf cart. Just sayin. 😀


Towards the end we lowered Everett’s stroller and he passed right out!


Sunday we went out to visit my wife’s dad. He has been in a nursing home for a little bit now. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a while ago and can no longer live on his own. It is pretty sad because he isn’t very old. He remembers us and Everett and loves holding him.


We were able to meet with his wife and their kid Remi and take him to the courtyard. The kids ran around like crazy.


The lady in the wheelchair is Lois. She has sort of been watching over my wife’s dad while people aren’t around. She came out with us and loved seeing the boys.


Everett and Uncle Remi are playing here with some cars on the little bench.


Later to round out the day and make the most out of it we met with her grandparents and brother’s family for lunch. It was at a very nice golf course in the area. They have great food and service.


If you have your volume on you can hear Everett slurp up his noodles haha. if you look close you can even see his top teeth! 😀 😀

Once we got home, we got in our comfy clothes and watched some New Girl. Everett has been looking though his legs so my wife was doing it too and he was laughing hysterically.


That was our weekend! We did a lot and it was, like always, worth it. I hope you had a great weekend too! I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀


Around the Water Cooler!

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday was a sorry, not sorry day haha. I was invited to go to our other building, by a co-worker to have pizza ate lunch. That is something I couldn’t pass up! 😀 I wasn’t able to post because of it though. 😦

I’m back now though, and the good thing about being around a water cooler vs. coffee talk is that you can have it any time of day haha. So here we are!

Some what of a project summary for me right now would be a few things. I have been roped in to helping a local nursing home extend their network with my co-worker. We went there last night to get the lay of the land. I have spent some time today gathering a list of items that they would want to get as upgrades, as well as drew up their current and proposed network in some free software. If everything gets agreed upon we could be in there getting that project done in a month.

The gas plant project is coming along slowly. I have been ready for a week to do some work for them, and they are in the process of making me a key like I said in an earlier post. I think I have everything I need to map the segment of the network I’d be in and address the gas chromatographer.I really hate that word, it’s to large and complicated haha. Here is the little guy causing all of the issues at that plant:

Here at work we are working on starting out huge ERP upgrade. We are talking a couple milion dollars here. We will be upgrading our current system in its entirety. We are going from a company we have used for over 30 years to a completely different one. It will involve our 4 man department a ton, and will probably take a couple years to implement fully. Yikes! :S

In personal life, I hope to mow the grass tonight. My wife’s friends are coming tomorrow to spend the day and go to the county fair. In the morning tomorrow I’ll be helping build the cabin a bit, I hope to get a few pictures to keep you all updated on that progress as well. 😀

That is it for me today! I hope you all have a great weekend, and I hope to see you back on Monday! 😀 😀

Long Minecraft Update

Hey Everyone!

I said before that I next planned on making an underwater home. Well….I did that…and I made another home just as an underground spot. Each is somewhat large and was fun to make. Giving credit where credit is due, I took the advice of YouTuber, TheNeoCubest. His page can be found here: . He currently uploads great tutorials and is fun and easy to listen to. I will break this post into two sections, one for each house. First I will cover the under water build.

First thing first, I build at the bottom of my water source with a sky/water light at the top. The rest of the build is under that in a + like pattern with 4 additional wings. Posted below are two pictures of the sky/water light.


Next I’d like to let you know how to get into this house. You climb down a ladder from the floor of my main house. This leads to a nice brick hallway that splits into two, each part going to each of the houses I built. So the next picture is the view as you open the door to the water build. It is the storage and smelting area.


Once you get to the middle of the room, where I have Glow Stone under glass, you look left to my Nether Wart farm and brewing area. There is Glow Stone above Soul Sand, and brewing stations at the end with an endless water supply in the back right. Pictured below.


Circling counter clockwise from this wing and straight across from my storage area, is the Enchanting Table area. This had bookshelves all around for the full effect and Glow Stone to light the way. It also have two anvils and book and paper dispensers. Lastly you can never have enough storage.


Continuing counter clockwise we have the bed room. It has two beds, a night stand, over head storage, bookshelves, and Glow Stone lights.


This completely wraps up the under water build. it have brick walls with iron block floors and is a decent size. It is more of an end game build since you are using a lot of Glow Stone and other “expensive” items. Now on to the under ground build. Similar to the under water build it is on the same level of depth but rather be under water it is just under ground. This one has 6 total rooms with a hallway in the middle. Where the path to the water build splits the other way leads to this build. Here is a picture of the main hallway for the under ground build.


To the left of the picture above we have the smelting room, with some storage, and anvils. There is a nice painting above the anvils.


Across the hall we have the Enchantment Table area. Very similar to the other build in that it have bookshelves all around it and is lit by Glow Stone.


Down the hall from the smelting room we have in the middle of the build a storage and crafting room. This features anvils again, crafting tables, and storage.


Across the hall from the storage area we have the bedroom, and entrance way. It consists of two beds, stone night tables, bookshelves, and Glow Stone light.


At the end of the hallway just past the storage and crafting area we have a Nether Wart farm. There is Glow Stone above the Soul Sand, used to grow the Wart. I have trap doors covering the sand for looks. At either end I have Ender chests and regular chests. At the end we have an endless water supply and 3 brewing stations.


Lastly, across the hall from the Nether Wart farm we have a regular farm area. There is a water block in the middle and for now I have wheat growing. The Glow Stone light is needed so that the plants will grow.


This concludes my two builds today. This last one had stone brick walls and a combined brick and iron block floor. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

As for the weekend I may try to catch the local fair going on through the weekend. the weather here is really crappy so who knows.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you Monday. 😀 😀
