This ‘n That Friday

  • Well, Cocoa was a bit put-out when I wouldn’t let her back in the coop at the end of the night.  It will be interesting to see what kind of mood she’s going to be in tomorrow  laughing

  • As I mentioned earlier, I am really liking this season of Eureka.  After watching tonight’s episode,  I was trying to place where I’ve seen the guy playing Dr. Trevor Grant…  He seemed so familiar, but yet not – I just couldn’t put my finger on it, so I looked it up.  It’s James Callis – the same guy that played Gaius Baltar on Battlestar Galactica!  It’s so weird hearing someone talk in an accent that you aren’t used to hearing them with  laughing   He’s a great addition to the show.

  • So I never got around to mentioning it, but a couple of weeks ago I made another trip to the Buffalo ReUse store to pick up some used brick for another project around the house.  The same brick that cost 65¢ a piece at Home Depot, I got for 25¢ each – quite a savings when getting 100 bricks!  While I was in the area, I decided to check out the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.  It’s along the same lines as Buffalo ReUse, but it is definitely smaller and I didn’t see any outside/yard stuff there.  I did score on a set of hinges I’ve been looking for tho’!
