Flexor tenosynovitis – a name only a hand surgeon could love

We have made it to the DFW area.. but not without one BIG – small incident.

On Saturday, as we were driving through El Paso, TX… Dexter (our 9yo Corgi boy) became distressed.  We believe he got one of his nails hung in something, but we’re not quite sure.  He was yelping in pain, so.. like any caring person would do, Lehnanne reached in to help free him from his bindings.  Unfortunately, Dexter didn’t realize it was her, and associated her touch with the trigger of his pain, and Lehnanne got bit.  Dexter is a good boy… as soon as he recognized it was his mom that he had, he released and allowed her to free him of his painful predicament.

The damage, however… was done. (more…)

Mods: Window Valance LEDs

We decided to add LEDs behind the valances of our coach windows.  We’ve seen some other brands that have a similar setup, but they appear to be down the sides of the windows and cause a lot of light bleed to the outside, even with the night shades down.  We only put them along the top valance and found that this gives plenty of light without any bleed outside when the shades are down.

The LED strips we used are color changing (red/green/blue – RGB) strips.  I also went with WiFi control modules for them so we could adjust the color and brightness from our smart-phones.

Thanks for the original idea from David of OutsideOurBubble.com!
