    An update on my life
    Since it has been four and a half years I thought I should update my journal. Actually I am thinking about getting back into Live Journal again. This time I will also keep a journal myself instead of just reading other people's.

    I have been meaning to update my journal for a while.

    At the end of July we moved into our new house in St. Michael. It seems to be almost twice the size of the old house, my bedroom definitely is. The house did not have Internet access for almost a month, now we have DSL. The service is all right but it does go down occasionally, and the modem takes forever to boot up. We still do not have cable TV. I never did watch TV much, but I miss the comedy and a few good shows that are on. Yesterday the sod for our lawn was installed. Luckily it has been raining ever since so that I do not have to move sprinklers around every hour.

    As for my motorcycle. I found a hole in the exhaust that was causing the problems. I patched it and it runs like new. Sadly the hot exhaust gas managed to melt some plastic and the wires for one of my turn signals. It should be a cheap fix. The hole was caused by a crack that grew where I bent the muffler.

    Note to anyone thinking about riding motorcycles for the first time: If the bike keeps stalling on take off. The correct procedure is to feather the clutch out more, not to keep adding throttle until it takes off without you and uses the muffler as a wheely bar.

    I think I took my last college computer programming class yesterday. Hopefully I should have my degree in my hand soon.

    My motorcycle is acting up for the first time in its two year life. It runs fine at idle, and wide open, but occasionally looses power for a second at any throttle setting in between.

    I think I graduated from college on Thursday of last week with my associates degree in computer programming. There is a small chance I will have to take another fraction of a credit class. I am not happy that they waited until now to tell me.

    I am having a lot of trouble using Live Journal. There are times when the pages just will not load at all.
