So here are the pictures from Safari West.  I wish that I had a real camera instead of just my iPhone.  A lot of my pictures were crap, and it didn't help me trying to edit them.  Then I had problems uploading them too. But they are all up now.

Safari West is an African Wildlife Preserve up between Santa Rosa and Calistoga.  They have tons of animals there.  Mainly peaceful ones like antelopes, zebras. giraffes, etc.  Also has an aviary, some monkeys, and cheetahs.  No tigers unfortunately.
They also have tent/cabins and cottages that you can stay in overnight.  It was a pretty cool experience staying there.  The tent/cabins are fully functioning with electricity and hot water.  Some of them even have bunk beds for the kids.  The one bad thing was that the birds (flamingos) would NOT SHUT UP the entire night.  They were pretty loud.  But other than that, it was a pretty cool place to stay.  If you have kids, it's worth looking into it, at least just for the tour.  I think that they would love it.

Oh, the other thing is that there is no Wi-Fi, cell phone reception, or TV's up there.  Not that you need it.

I should be reading a book or something

So Internet is down right now, for me anyway. Thank goodness for iPhones and faux 4G speeds from AT&T to get me through my Internet withdrawal. No if only I could play World if Warcraft or Diablo III on my phone…

Anyway I somehow messed up my TV so now I have a reason to look for a new TV to buy for Xmas. All I wanted to see is if I could use HDMI to hook up my computer to the TV. I can, but now the reception on the HDMI, PC, and TV sources are flickering. It's what I get for messing with stuff that didn't need messing with. In the other hand, new TV for me, hee hee.

I should goto bed early anyway, since I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. Getting a physical, checking out the knees, and asking about sleep apnea. I'm still in denial about the snoring, I think that I just breathe a little loud. We'll see.

Can't wait for movember to be over. The little that I have to shave off is driving me crazy.

Next computer project is to get my music collection organized…again. When I reloaded my music, I lost all of the ratings and the genres are all messed up. Going to try and get OCD on all 145gb of music.

Ok enough mindless banter, I should start reading the books that I got this last weekend. Need to learn how to get a new job.

Overall a pretty good day

Currently working on backing up my computer and looking at Cyber Monday Ads trying to find a TV to buy.  I'm hoping that 500GB is enough to backup everything since 300GB wasn't.  The fact that I'm creating a weekly backup is amazing in itself.  I'll bring the 300GB up to the parents at Xmas time and put it in their machine and upgrade it to Windows 7; the current machine is running XP on a 30GB hard drive.  At least it has 2GB RAM.  That'll leave me with trying to sell a 120GB hard drive on Craigslist.  Maybe I'll give Dad the 120GB instead and sell the 300GB.  They are both so small (…that's what she said…) and with hard drvie prices what they are today, I'll be lucky to get 10-20 dollars for them.

Also looking for a 40" TV to replace the 32" that I have now.  Went to Fry's and wasn't impressed with their prices.  They have cheap TV's but I refuse to buy anything with COBY stamped on it.  There was also a brand called TCL, but I haven't heard anythng about them.  What I want is a Samsung TV with a PC input, but haven't found one yet.  I guess I could connect with HDMI.  Just need to keep looking.

Go a bunch of clothes that I can just throw on for those days that I'm late for work.  I have a feeling that tomorrow will be one of those days.  We'll see just how many pieces I'll keep and what gets returnred back to Macy's

Did I mention that I'm not looking forward to work tomorrow?
