Technology nearly got the best of me last night. My cable supplier only allows 2 HD or 3 regular defination TV to be used. I have 2 HD tv's in the house as well as a HD PVR.Last night I got a message that I had to shut off 1 TV to continue watching the show I was into. After checking as to what was running I found that the living room TV was tuned to a HD movie for the Ggranddaughters, my TV was tuned to a HD station and someone had set the PVR to record another HD program. I stopped the PVR and checked the other scheduled recordings to see which ones conincided with each other. After going through nearly 400 channels I think I sorted things out. I think I liked the days when you either watched the 1 channel available or found something else to do if you didn't like what was playing. It's no wonder that there were so many large families before TV.:)
I found the clear acrylic spray yesterday and it is non yellowing. Today I have to polish the 1939-1945 brass star and the Italy Star my father earned as well as the PPCLI hat badge. I'll then be ready to coat the 5 medals and court mount them over a brass plaque my BIL had made for me. The plaque gives my fathers name, birth and death date and the areas where he served.
The project is taking alot longer than I expected but will be well worth the effort to preserve my fathers memory for my descendants. My youngest daughter has told me that she'll care for them when I pass so they'll be left for her.
I hope to have the project complete by Nov.11 when I'll post a photo of the work.
Today I have to visit the vampires for my regular blood work as well as as new test my doctor has ordered in preparation for a CT scan to check the pseudocyst they found on my pancreas while I was in the hospital.

Good morning Tony, first again I see. Hope you have a good day at the Vampyres and that today proves to be a good Monday for you. Have to go out myself in a bit to do a bit of shopping for me and the kitties.

Weather looks decent although it was a chilly 47F when I got up at 5 to feed my crew. I see Browyn was back again with Smudgie so I know she is doing well.

Anyway hve a great day.
