Ubuntu

Thinking about going with Ubuntu as an operating system. I am concerned about the iTunes thing considering that I have an iTouch and it has a need to sync with iTunes.

And David also has to be on board consider it affects him too.

More research needed....

Last Nights Dinner

David made an awesome dinner out there last night. Fish with an orange and basil sauce, crab salad, and corn. I am not sure what is in the crab salad, but instead of mayo he used Rago Cheese Sauce in the base instead of mayo. Personally, I would of liked mayo, but it is still tasty. I am going to have some as a leftover today along with some hotdogs.

Road trip

Started out at 8am for a ten hour trio to Kansas. It has already be rough with only five hours of sleep. So far I stopped three times. I stopped at rest stop only after 1 1/2 hours because I was sleepy, I stopped an hour later for gas, and now I am stopping for lunch. If you follow me on Twitter, you could see what I had.

salt, and flour. Stir in eggs and milk. Pour into prepared pie shell. Bake 50-60
