Heat Guns

Every Do It Yourself person should have a useful heat gun in their garage or tool shed. Because www.buyheatshrink.com heat guns have so many great uses, even a hobbiest needs to have one for smaller jobs. It seems so many times in our lives we needed to remove varnish from an old piece of furniture and renew it but we didn't have a great tool like a heat gun. We had to do it the hard way. I can't count how many times we fought with rusted bolts, trying various products to loosen them. Also removing paint was a major project, however, a heat gun would have made much shorter work of these projects.

Corn and the Humidity

I just heard the other day just how many gallons of water the Iowa corn throws out into the air each day. That is why we have such bad humidity here in the summer. There has been fog a couple mornings too, some of it quite thick. This morning when I went out to get the paper on the deck, it was foggy and the air smelled awful. It smelled like a musty mold. I didn't want to stay out there for long. It was sunny for a bit but now is overcast again.

Drums and Percussion Drums

Drums add so much to the music we listen to. At musiciansfriend they have quite a selection of drums. There is a great sale going on and they have the lowest prices around. Quality drums produce the finest of sound. A good drummer on the right drums makes for the best exciting music. Over the years, I have enjoyed a great deal of music and much of it has featured drums. It is great to be able to get the drums you want and save money at the same time.

WIT Rally

It is that time again. The WIT Rally starts today in Forest City, Iowa, the home of the Winnebago. WIT stands for Winnebago International Travelers and they travel all over in their Winnebago. Over 1,000 motor homes will all be lined up by State on the Winnebago grounds. They have all kinds of excellent entertainment for these folks. Most of them have sold their homes and now live in their Winnebago and travel all over. I worked in Personnel at Winnebago for 25 years and was able to go over and see the people, their crafts and much more. I could enjoy the entertainment, as well. It is quite a club.

Family Reunion Picnic

We had a wonderful picnic on the 5th of July. It all started with my brother-in-laws birthday falling on that date. He passed away about 5 years ago and his oldest son kept up the picnic. He has remarried and all her relatives come too, plus those of his first wife who passed away from cancer about 7 years ago. All the cousins love to get together and bring up the old memories when they played together on the farms. A good time was had by all and more food than anyone could eat. It was a beautiful weather day, kind of overcast so not so hot and a good breeze.
