Only On eBay

Remember those Napoleon Dynamite posters I purchased at the Utah State Fair Park? Well, I placed two of them up for bids on eBay yesterday.

I also updated the main page to ryansharich.com. It now includes a link to items I am selling on eBay. Therefore, if anyone would ever like to see what I am selling, at any time, you can simply go to the front page and click on that link without having to search for the link through these blog entries...

September 24, 2005

Since I am still feeling not very well, I am not going to post much for today.

I just want to mention that Tristyn and I did go up to Coalville, UT and Evanston, WY on Thursday. I should be posting those few pictures that I did take (while sick and in the passenger seat) up on my Photo page, just as soon as I finish putting up the Peach Days pictures... Which by the way, I did update that page. Sadly, the number of pictures that I already have posted, I have that same amount to put up on that page... UGH!!! It's never ending.

Also, if anyone who personally knows me and reads this early enough, we are having another yard/garage sale today until 3 or 4PM. Just call me to get directions.

Well, that's all for me today. Hopefully, I'll be feeling better by later tonight. That way, I can look for more interesting stuff to post. Remember, I said, "Hopefully...".

That Is Way Too Many People

Last week, my father and a few other relatives went up through Wyoming, into South Dakota to visit Mount Rushmore. On the way up there, they saw this sign about the town of Lost Springs, Wyoming. But on the way back, they stopped and took a picture of the sign. I wonder who that person is?

What a Way to Spend One of My Days Off...

Lately, I have been feeling like crap. Today, I woke up to feel even worse. Then, around 3PM it started raining like mad outside. Later, I went downstairs to get something to eat out of the freezer, but saw this "little" mess. With the help of my brother, his friend, my sister and Tristyn, we were able to clean it in less than an hour. Except, after cleaning it up, I felt very tired because of the way I felt.

Tristyn demonstrates how the wet-vac works...

Construction Inside the Old Food 4 Less on Van Winkle...

I drove past the building on Van Winkle yesterday morning, to see what they have done to the building since I noticed they are now going to turn that entire building/section into a Gold's Gym. Well, I posted on an earlier blog, a picture of the outside of what was going on earlier.

But what about the inside...?

Well check the pictures out for yourself. It's kind of neat to see what was once Food 4 Less the grocery store, is now going to be something completely different inside. I didn't think it would be possible. That was probably because of all the yellow paint.

This is looking at what use to be the middle aisle, towards what was also the back receiving area...

This is looking towards what was once the frozen section...

This is looking towards where the check stands #1 and #2 use to be...

Guess Where I Went to Last Night... Again?

No, not Preston, Idaho. I meant after I got off of work around 8PM. No! I already said, 'not Preston'... Gosh! My work was handing out $2.00 admission tickets to the Utah State Fair that were good only for Sunday night, and so I took one and went to the fair again (yes, alone this time-- Sorry, no pictures this time). It was much more busier last night than Tuesday night, mainly because Sunday night was the last night of the fair. Well, the only reason I went again was to buy some more of those Napoleon Dynamite posters, you know, like the one I bought the other night. Well, I was planning on buying $100.00 worth (20 count, and no I am not crazy...) to sell on eBay. I know that fans of the movie will want one since it will be a scarce item. But since it was the last night, they only had 9 left. So I bought those remaining posters and grabbed a bunch of Fair event hand booklets -- Crap! That reminds me, I need to change the coding on my ND website... One sec. -- Done and done. Where was I? Oh yeah, since I never spent all the money that I was playing to originally pay for those, I thought, "Why not get a window decal sticker of tech-tonics.com to put on my cars' back window?" (since they had a booth to have custom made stickers/signs made while at the fair.) Since I had the money, I thought, what the hey?! So I only spent around 1/4 of what I would have to of paid if I had a local sign shop make one for me. That way, incase my car does not last much longer (knock on wood), I wouldn't have wasted all that money. I plan on cleaning my car, and then to put that sticker on later today. So I will post a picture of what it looks like. Sweet! Lets just hope I don't screw it up while putting it on...

Is Albertsons Ready To Call It Quits?

I've been told by two people today that they have read an article in the Salt Lake Tribune saying that Albertsons is possibly planning on selling the company. This is not good news. If this does happen, I may have to stop repairing computer with my personal side-job/company "tech-tonics.com" and hopefully get hired at CompUSA. Hopefully I won't have to...

I Went to the Sescent... The Sussenti... The Suscent.... Dang it! The 150th Utah State Fair

Tristyn and I went to the Utah State Fair last night. It was pretty cool. We got to see the last 10 minutes of Carrot Top's act since he was performing at the Pepsi Grandstand. Saw the animals and got complimented 4 times on my t-shirt. Not criticized, complimented!!! I need to start wearing that more often... lol. Oh, and I got the sweetest poster of Napoleon Dynamite looking at a chicken. I just need to find a frame for it though. As soon as I can scan it, I'll post the picture. It's really sweet!

Peach Days 2005

Okay, since I have a couple hours to kill before I have to start getting ready for work, I will tell you about what happened up in Brigham City and Franklin, Idaho on Saturday.

Tristyn and I finally left SLC around noon and didn't get up to Brigham City around 1:30PM. We were lucky to find a parking space in the Smith's (Food and Drug) parking lot since that place gets too crowded. FYI- It's always best to car pool with as many people as you can if you ever go up to Peach Days. We walked along (State Hwy 13) Main Street where many of the people were. We then started walking west on West Forest Street to get to the car show, which was being held at Walkins Park. This street had the most people on it since the City of Fun Carnival (just like the one in Nephi, back in July) was on that street. The whole time we started from where my car was parked, to the car show at the park, both Tristyn and I had to carry our personal belongings, a folding chair, and a blanket. Plus, on top of that, while we were walking along W. Forest St., they had many food stands to get something to eat. So, here we are carrying all that personal stuff, as well as also trying to carry and eat the food we bought along the way to the park. But we made it.

Well, after getting to the car show, we found where my fathers car was, and sat down and chatted for a while. We then got up and started to walk around and look at all the cars. Spent a good hour doing that. I think that is the first time that I have actually went and looked at every single car at a car show. Well, lets just say, the first on record. I almost didn't get pictures of the 2nd half of the car show because the batteries in my camera died really quickly. Guess I better buy some rechargeable batteries since I know they last longer than normal batteries, and can be reused. But Tristyn had an extra set of rechargeable batteries, and I was able to get most of the pictures for the Photo page.


 

After looking at the cars, we decided it was time to go up to Idaho. So we packed back up all our belongings on our backs and headed back to the car. But before we headed up to Idaho, we had to stop and pick up so peaches. We stopped at this large fruit stand (more like a no-walled house!) across from Maddox Restaurant and picked up a bushel of peaches. If that place had more of a selection and being a vegetarian, I would have thought I was in heaven. But they only had the major selections of fruits and vegetables.

Well, off to Idaho we went. Even though we had to deal with rain and cloudiness at the car show, it got worse the farther north we drove. So we took the normal route up 89/91 and stopped at La Tienda. I found out why they only were allowing 7 drawings back in August. Turns out, they were adding more numbers to the Powerball and after every drawing (from when I found out last time), they would lower the number of drawings. So now, they are back up to 10. Sweet!

After getting Powerball tickets and played a few scratch games, we headed back to Salt Lake. But we also stopped off at Big J Burger to get dinner. Man I love that place. And this time, they were not playing Napoleon Dynamite on their TV's that they have there.

Well, until next year/summer, looks like the fun is dying down for the year. Well, come on Summer of '06! Get here now! OH! I almost forgot. I will be driving up to Coalville, UT, possibly on up into Evanston, WY too, on the 20th of this month.
