Got a new phone.

As you may recall, I had a HTC Desire (Android phone) and I really liked it. The only issue I really had was the lack of on board memory. You could not load any apps without running out of space.

I now have a Motorola Droid X2. It has 8GB of on board memory that solves the memory problem. One benefit is the reception. It is great. In speaking with Loren, I believe he summarized it best to say that Motorola has great radio's (Hey, they should)

I do miss some little things from the Desire. Like email notification icon and it is a bit large. Guess I will have to upgrade to Touchdown. (Email program)

Come on we have to have the technology.

We will soon be on our third water heater in 6 years since we built the house. In checking on these heaters that instantly heat the water and are tankless. There are issues. (I am going to leave out the details)

So we are going to replace it with a standard gas and tank heater. You would think in some 30 years there would have been an improvement. Nope.

We have been told that the hard water is causing the problem. It is also related to clogged shower heads and other issues. Again, you would think that we could have a system that treated the entire town and would keep this from happening. Nope.

Well, with a lighter wallet, I will be able to have a car with less spots this spring...

How the Riat Family is going to help the Ravens and you should too!

If you missed the end of the Ravens game on Sunday catch it HERE

First was the dropped pass then was the missed field goal. So tonight we had pass catching followed by practicing kicking field goals (The couch was the up rights)

Tomorrow we are going to have kick off return so we do not have to have this interview! We will practice getting out of the way of a kick off if we are not going to catch the ball then once we catch the ball how to hang on to the ball!

Lets face it, the Riat boys are more likely to be kickers than punt return men.

Just don't be last?

Caden and I did our first Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. We spent quite a lot of time cutting, sanding, painting and weighting.

When we were done, all I could think was don't make us last.

We finished in the middle of the pack.
