I have friends who watch TV shows and read magazines on how to be better at hunting. I just grab my rifle I have hunted with since I was a teenager, slip on one of the appropriate camo rifle covers I have for the season and terrain and go hunting. I learned the basics of hunting from my grandfather and my dad. When they were growing up, meat on the table came largely from what you could get yourself while out hunting. My dad said that Grandpa kept the family in meat and Grandma kept them in vegetables. She had a green thumb for growing the best produce and getting the best harvest from the fruit trees in their yard.
My wife and I do not make a fortune at our jobs, and hunting does fill up our freezer with good venison and other meats. I have friends that pay to go hunting. The go on these hunting adventures.

People make really stupid mistakes sometimes. I thought that I was immune to that, but it turns out I wasn’t. I got into a fight with someone, and the police quickly became involved.

I have a memory that pops up at times from back when I was just a little kid. I think I was around 4 years old, and I remember pulling off my grandfather’s black bow tie in the middle of a family dinner. Every Sunday, everyone in my family would get together for a good, home cooked meal together. We were always dressed up because everyone went to church earlier in the day. Those family dinners were always wonderful for me, and we did them all the way up through the time that I graduated high school.

We decided to move to Florida, but we decided to build a home rather than buy. We wanted a home that was hurricane resistant and secure from intrusion. We even hired a company that does home automation in Boca Raton to make our home modern. The lights, window shades, HVAC, door locks, garage doors, audio system, security, ceiling fans and much more are all capable of being remotely controlled and monitored. Our landscape lighting looks like a work of art unto itself. We have landscape audio components and an outdoor entertainment area. All of it was custom designed for our home.
Home automation can be at any level. Continue reading Building Our Automated Home in Florida
