Went To Miami and Got Local Birders All Fluffed Up

Back in November we took a trip to Miami to hang out with Alex for a few days.  Little did we know that this would cause quite a flutter in the bird world.

A Little Computing

The fan on one of our laptops stopped working a few years back.  As a result, it was prone to heating up more than it should.  If it got too warm the video card, motherboard, etc. would suddenly decide to stop working.

We've managed to keep it limping along via the presence of air conditioning, the use of an external fan blowing on the computer and a few other tricks.

The biggest issues though came when the ambient temperature was already elevated and that happens quite a bit when you live in metal box.  

A few months ago though our bag of tricks was losing its magic and it was looking like a new laptop was the only option.
That was until....  Nicole decided to investigate.

Will this every go back together?

Looks like excessive amounts of dust had clogged the cooling fins and prevented the fan from turning.

Even the vents on the case were clogged.

All cleaned up and ready to re-assemble.

We're back in business!

Cool air blowing from the now free-turning fan and circulating over the motherboard and video card.  

Don't tell Annie though or she'll decide we could use the money we saved on her!

A Threat To The President???

The other day we took a drive south for the afternoon.

Returning north we decided to drive along the island beach road.

At some point we rolled up on a police check point and the officer greeted us with a "Where are you headed today?"  

After informing him of our destination he paused for a moment before telling us we needed to turn around and go another way.  

We looked at him with a puzzled look on our faces and he clarified his original statement with... 

"You are driving a large enclosed vehicle and I cannot permit you to get any closer to the President."

It had completely slipped our minds that we were nearing Mar-a-Lago.  So, we turned around and headed off island and resumed north on the next main road.

A few minutes later we were sitting four cars back at a blocked intersection, watching a slew of secret service vehicles, one containing the President, roll by as he returned from a day at the golf course.

In the end, we wound up closer to the President than we ever could have gotten had we driven the beach road past Mar-a-Lago.  

So, that was kinda funny.
