New headphones

Apr 15, 2019 - 1 minutes
So my old headphones that served me well for a couple of years but I got the cable caught under my chair and it made the one side flakey. I had really liked them other than the long cord though but in the grand scheme of things I guess too long would be better than too short.. I decided since I liked them I’d go with Sennheiser again and chose the Sennheiser HD 4. Read more ...

We Went To Extremities In Lebanon

Apr 5, 2019 - 1 minutes
It’s been a while since we visited Extremities in Lebanon but it’s always great to browse through their cds and pick up a few. They have a great metal section. Yes Metal! We used to visit more often when it was still keystone and on this side of Lebanon but it’s not bad to get to. I think we need to go there then geocache out along 422. You don’t see that too often.

Harvey's BBQ in Mount Joy's Ribs

Mar 28, 2019 - 1 minutes
We’ve been meaning to get back to this place for a while but we like to walk and the weather’s been quite uncooperative for that. Today it worked out that we went over there and I am glad we did. Normally I get the pulled pork or beef brisket which have both always been amazing. Today the special was Ribs with a specialty sauce. I decided to try the ribs and I’m very glad I did.

Beginning The Hunt For A Portable Music Player

Mar 25, 2019 - 3 minutes
I’m finally someone seriously looking looking for a new portable music player. It’s so overwhelming to search for exactly what I want for a reasonable price. It has to support large SD cards. I see some of them support 2 SD cards and that would be ideal for me in case one took a shit while we were away at least I’d still have something. We have a lot of music and my mood and tastes in want I want to listen to vary all the time so I want to be able to have everything available. Read more ...

Discovering New Music

Mar 20, 2019 - 1 minutes
One of my favorite ways to discover new music now is to listen to something I like on Youtube then let it go to what ever is next. Sometimes something comes up that I like and sometimes it’s something I’ve not heard of before. For example I’ve recently discovered Delain and Epica this way. Apparently I’m on a symphonic metal kick now after a couple of years of mostly death metal. Read more ...

Warm Day And Evening Thunderstorm

Mar 15, 2019 - 1 minutes
The mountain west and central PA have had a massive storm this week with lots of snow and wind. That’s put us on the warm side of the storm with the warm front finally making it through we’ve had a high in the 70s today with the last patches of snow in shade being gone by noon. It was a nice day for sure. We tried to enjoy some time on the patio but the fucking mosquitoes were already out. Read more ...

Floor Jansen

Mar 6, 2019 - 1 minutes
A couple of weeks ago my girlfriend discovered Nightwish which I didn’t think she’s like be cause of Tarja’s opera singing. She generally dislikes female vocals. I liked them from what I downloaded way back in the early 2000s but never got around to actually picking anything up. Also around that time I discovered After forever and again didn’t have the funds to pick it up at that time. I really liked them both alot from what I could hear in the shitty quality mp3s.

Hoping For Some Thundersnow Here In Lancaster County!

Feb 20, 2019 - 1 minutes
As foretasted for a few days now It’s snowing heavily this morning. It was one of the nice storms that didn’t start out as hours of virga. It was more less from nothing to moderate snow and started laying immediately. Really though it’s a wasted snow storm like most this year where it’ll change to ice then rain but you gotta take what you can get. Not every year can be really well performing winters like the past few have been. Read more ...

Milk, Bread and Eggs

Feb 19, 2019 - 1 minutes
I’ve always been curies as to why every time it snows people feel the need to go to the store and buy milk and eggs and bread. Why these items and not something that won’t spoil if you were to lose power. The part I always laugh at is even in the worst storms in most of the world things will be back to normal within a day or two. Even if you can’t drive someplace most people could (gasp) walk to get what they may need. Read more ...

Snow To Ice To Rain

Feb 19, 2019 - 1 minutes
It seems around presidents day we’ve had a few of our biggest snow storms. There’s still enough cold air readily available and a bit more energy available as spring is approaching. This year we’ll have a storm that starts with heavy snow with a few inches of it accumulating. That will change to sleet then freezing rain as warmer air works in aloft first. That seems to be the way things are going with every storm this year. Read more ...
