The sofware has other features as well, but this is the one that we want to use.
It seems to work as we hoped.

Today we traveled to Manheim, Pa and the Roots Farmer's Market. This is one of the first times that Maddy has been to a Farmer's Market. It was not packed with shoppers as is the case in the summer.
After shopping at the market we stopped for lunch before heading back home.
We stopped in Hanover, Pa at the Utz potato chip factory. They have a viewing gallery that is open to the public from 8am to 4pm Monday to Thursday and some Fridays. They do not allow cameras in, so we do not have any pictures to post. If you are in the area we recommend you take the time to see how some of the finest potato chips in the area are made.

We we arrived at the pond, they were already at work tranfering fish from the truck into the pond. The fish being stocked are rainbow trout.
After our walk we went to the movies and saw "Horton hears a who." It was a nice movie for kids.

After church, we went back to our house for Easter dinner. Our Son, Todd, his wife, Beth and Granddaughter, Maddy was already there waiting for us.
Leah fixed a very nice Easter Dinner with Ham, fresh green beans, scalloped potatoes, and a scalloped pineapple dish. All done to perfection I might add.
Leah also had fixed deviled eggs and pickled eggs. We noticed a few were missing from the plate, so we know that our early arrivals sampled some. :-)
Todd is always complaining that we never write about him in our blog, so we made certain that he was mentioned. We will also mention Beth, just to be sure we don't have any hurt feelings.
We also have a big treat in that Maddy will be spending several days with us. We always enjoy her visits, but boy, does she keep us busy.
We do hope that everyone has had a great Easter and a good year to come.

We are still in Maryland because of family medical problems and now we can add a motorhome problem to the list. On Monday Tom started the generator for its monthly run. When he started the front dometic Duo-Therm Heat pump, to put a load on the generator, the fan would not run. JR's RV Repairs in Gettysburg, Pa was called to look at the unit.
JR contacted Dometic and found out that there was a bad run of fan motors and as luck would have it, we have one. Dometic is sending a replace fan motor and we should have the motorhome back next week. The driveway looks empty without it being parked there.
And the Maryland Terps lost to Boston College in the ACC Tournment. Blew a 25 point lead... (:-(

The amount of money that was being paid for some of these farm toys was shocking. One farm toy was sold for $400.00.
After seeing what was being paid for some of the farm toys it made is want to go home and raid the toy box to see what we can come up with...

Saturday and Sunday, Tom and Leah went to the Marine Corp. Museum. See the link on the left of the screen.
The Museum is open every day except Christmas from 9 to 5. After spending two days at the museum, we could have spent even more time there.
The museum is right off of Interstate 95 and the best part is admission is FREE.
We advise you not to go unless you have several hours to devote to your visit.
There are three tours each day at 10:00, 12:00 and 2:00 given by volunteers.
So if you are in the area or a former Marine plan on stopping at this fine Museum and learn about the history of the Marine Corp.
