April 9, 2007 – Equipment Day/Fresh Air

This afternoon, although it wasn’t warm, it was sunny and calm. I needed to replace a couple of battteries on lawn mowers, change oil, and other things.

Swapping the mower deck for the tiller is always a pain – here we are almost complete. 

This evening Linda and I had a bit of a treat – we went to Ames to a lecture by Terry Gross, host of NPR’s Fresh Air radio/interview show.  First, it was strange to see the woman behind the voice – the mental models never quite match up with the real thing.  It was an interesting evening – she shared interviews that went well and those that didn’t.  We heard about some of the background on her interviews with Bill O’Reilly, Monica Lewinski, Lynn Cheney, Gene Simmons (Rock band KISS) and many others.
