Like, Love and Don't Like

This week, I like the arrival of fall-like temperatures. We haven't quite gotten to the point where the humidity level is consistently bearable but we're close. My car does not resemble an oven when I get in it and I don't have to blast the AC on the way to and from work - which saves a little gas.

This week, I love the arrival of college football season. I want to hear the theme music to ESPN's College Gameday and I want to hear it now. I want to watch Lee Corso infuriate Bama Nation by picking Virginia Tech to win (even though it's usually bad news if Corso picks your team). And I want to read all the great signs behind the Gameday set.

This week, I don't like the fact that I cannot fix our busted DVD player. It decided to stop reading DVDs the other day without any warning. I'm no electronics expert but I examined all the "guts" and feel confident that I pinponted the problem. Unfortunately, I don't know what to do about said problem area! In the era of Wal Mart, Best Buy, HH Greg and numerous other stores, it's much easier to just buy a new machine rather than have your machine serviced. (Side note: Julie is ironically now very appreciative of my PlayStation 2 and it's DVD capabilities all of a sudden. When our DVD player went on the blink, she didn't have to interupt her precious Heros viewings. I guess the PS2 isn't so bad to have after all!)

BONUS TIDBIT: Photos (and possibly video) next week from Oxmoor Valley's Ridge Course. You've seen the clubs, now see them in action!
