So, during the work week, I drive thru a lot. I’ve been going over different options to carry my food back home. My backpack would probably squash my food. I saw some cargo nets online so I picked one up at Walmart. A Coleman MadDog for $4. I think it might work.
Last Friday we drove up to Georgetown to pick up a 2017 Bright Yellow Grom, and I have been loving it. I started off riding around the neighborhood to make sure I still remembered how to drive a motorcycle. It took a couple attempts, and a few embarrasing moments at the stop sign, but I finally got my groove. I am no longer fearful of stop signs and red lights!
I didn’t want to spend any more money so I went on the hunt for a used Helmet at the pawnshops. I visited about 5 pawn shops and found one for $59! It fits really well, and did not seem to be that used. Gave it a good once over with some cleaning products and hit the road with it. I am already looking at purchasing a brand new helmet from the same brand later on. Vega.
Because of the holiday, it was a short work week. I was only able to take the Grom to work two days of the three we worked because of Rain. On Friday, I only took the Grom after lunch. My General Manager even gave me permission to park the Grom right on the curb so that it can get some shade. That was a huge relief as I wasn’t sure where to park the Grom.
Now I just need Grom Friends!
The first gen Moto X was the best non-nexus phone I ever owned. Not only was it practically Pure Android, it had some great hands free features. Now that I riding around in the Grom, I bought a Moto Hint to send me notifications to my ear. BUT, since it was an impulse buy at a pawn shop I didn’t do my research. Turns out all the cool hands free stuff for the Hint is for Moto X phones, and probably other Moto phones. I am currently looking for homebrew bluetooth apps to get the same experience as the Moto X with the Moto Hint. For now, it’s just a simple bluetooth earpiece. It does send my Audiobooks to my ear though. That’s cool.

All my life, I have had dreams where I can’t run from the bad guy, can’t scream for help, and now my gun won’t fire! I wonder why that is? My worst fears materialzing in dreams? Oh yeah, planes crash in my dreams too.
I’ll just stay awake.
Helped the missus fry some fish for our church’s 60th Anniversay Fellowship. I’m not going to lie, the propane tank scares me. Gas and flame = BOOM in my book! Glad Juan was there to supervise. I am too picky to eat the fish my wife made but she loves me enough to get me some barbacoa, so that’s what I ate. Everyone seemed to enjoy the fish though!
So, being obsessed with all things Google of course I wanted a Google Home since it was announced! I finally picked one up at Target a few weeks ago. Aside from asking it a few questions every now and then. Here is pretty much what I use it for.
