I got the new pure sine wave 1000 watt inverter hooked up and running. It seems to remove the audible distortion from things plugged into it. I've now got my computer/monitor/etc hooked up to it. I'll have to do a power outage post next time the power is out.

Raytheon stock jumped up another $1.20 today. I was expecting a drop. In anycase, I sold a bunch of shares at 4pm yesterday, finally succeeding at the "buy low, sell high" plan.

I got into work late today(6:45) and managed a parking spot in the front row and I had to unlock the door to get in. Bunches of people must be out on PTO/etc today. Gonna be a nasty day to be home. The A/C is on and its cool(for now).

We went to Davis Farmland yesterday afternoon. The kids and I seemed to enjoy it. Emily didn't care for it and it was kind of a toss up as to whether the grandparents liked it. Lots of animals(sheep, goats, chickens, etc). Aiyre took a pony ride. Evan fed the animals but Aiyre was too scared(even with me holding her, she kept flinching away). She did pet a couple animals, but only briefly.

There is a bit of a water park at the Davis place too. Aiyre and Evan really liked that part. The water wasn't very cool and really stung if you got it in your eyes, but they didn't seem to care.

Today, Emily's parents headed out to Utica while I was working. Emily and Aiyre went to see the Wiggles in downtown Worcester. Hopefully, they'll like the show. I was all to happy to stay home with Evan while they went.
