Weekend Honey Do Tips

A/C Filter

 Time to check: Air Conditioner Filter

It is the start of a new month this weekend, so it is time to change the filter in the air conditioner/furnace. This is a relatively simple task that will only take a couple of minutes.
 When changing the filter, be sure to check the return area and clean if necessary. Also add some chlorine bleach to the condensate drain tube to inhibit blockage from algae build up.


 TireCheck your tires too! 
 Since this week’s maintenance is easily performed, you should also check your air pressure in your vehicle’s tires. If you are low on air pressure, inflate to the manufacturer specifications that are embossed into the tire sidewall. Proper inflation will make your tires last longer, give you better control of the vehicle, and improve gas mileage.


Oil Cap

While you are at it, you should check the fluids in your vehicle as well. There are several fluids that need to be checked; Oil, power steering, transmission, coolant,windshield washer, and brake fluid. Try do do this when the engine is cool, and check the manufacturer’s recommendations for fill level. These can be found in your owners manual.

Mortgage bonds were off to a rough start this morning at the open.   But, at the time of this posting, they have recovered much of the early morning losses in trading.   No significant economic data is due out until Wednesday January 14th when the retail sales report and crude oil inventories becomes available.

Because of this, the bond market will likely take the lead from stocks and world news over the next 48 hours.

Testing the new Flip Mino on Orange Beach Condos along Beach Blvd!

I just took my wifes new Flip Mino Video Recorder out for a test drive today.  It was a bit shakey starting off, but I was just trying to learn how to use the thing.  I started out at Alabama Point State Park and entered Beach Blvd. at The Caribe Resort in Orange Beach and traveled West over the Perdido Pass Bridge all the way to the West end of Orange Beach terminating the trip at the Gulf Shores State Park Gazebo.  Keep in mind this is my first video and it was not edited at all.  The shakes in the first few seconds will stop and the music will begin at the stop sign (LOL).  About one minute into the video it improves somewhat.  I will be checking out some editing software and overlaying music on the next one instead of listening to Margaritaville Radio on the satellite radio.  I hope you enjoy the drive through Orange Beach, AL!
