Learning something new every day!

About Me...

In June 2007 I decided to look into returning to school for my Bachelor's degree. I had been managing okay with my Associate's degree, but the idea of moving back home [South Florida] without more education under my belt was not so appealing. By the end of July I had started my first class. Two years later I am five classes away from completing that degree and my oldest child is about to start her college journey.

What I Learned Wednesday - New Skills?

Join the fun, post what you learned this week, and link up below. The code for the image is located in my sidebar. All I ask is you link back to this post. Oh, and make sure you link to your post and not your blog in general, okay?

Okay, so I moved Megan into Radford this past Friday and she is settling in nicely.  DH did not get a chance to say good-bye and thought we could bring her his bike (he has not used it in a while) and check out the campus.  Sunday we drove over and brought the bike, a cable lock for the bike, and some miscellaneous stuff that was missed in the initial move.

After arriving we found a bike rack for the bike and proceeded to set the cable lock.  Megan changed the combination to one she would remember and put the cable through the bike and bike rack.  Then we had her try to open it to make sure everything was copacetic.  Note to self, always check locks prior to attaching them to ANYTHING.

We must have worked that lock for a good half hour before heading to the website for additional help.  By the way, website was no help.  Back to tinkering with the lock; another half hour passes.  Next we decide to conduct a search on picking the lock.  There is always a work-around, right?  JACKPOT!  Back to the lock.  DH tries, but his hands are too big to work the lock properly.  We are not sure what happened, but the combination we thought we set was not even close to what was actually set.  But, I did learn I can pick a lock if the need should arise.  Of course, I will use this new found power only for good. 

What have you learned this week? Grab the button from my sidebar, then add a link to your post below using MckLinky. Not sure how to link up? Leave a comment or send me an email (or both) and I will happily walk you through it.
