Braces 2

You all read my post on my getting my top teeth braces, and as you know, i do not have them on my bottom teeth. Well now I do. I got them put on on October 21, 2010. First they adjusted my top teeth, which went really smoothly, and then they started the process of putting them on my bottom teeth. 30 minutes later when that was done, there was only small details, like the color. I went with orange and black for Halloween. Then they built up really annoying glue on my back molars to prevent me from biting off my braces(which i already did before they put the glue on.). I am getting them adjusted on December 16, 2010

Stratford Garlic Festival

On Sunday September 18, 2010 we went to the 4th annual Stratford Garlic Festival. At the festival, they had all sorts of interesting things. Naturally there was loads of garlic for sale, but there was also honey, corn steamed from an antique steam engine, and lots of vendors. There was also pizza and burgers to eat. There were 2 cooking demonstrations going on as well. The Stratford Garlic Festival is a once a year event, so make sure you stop by next year.

Reviews Blog

As you may know, my website has a reviews section. That section no longer exists. Reviews have now been made into a blog. The advantages of having it on a blog, means that it is searchable, has an archive, has categories, and you can follow the blog. This also means that it is easier for me to write them, which means that more will come out more often. To visit this new blog, go to

New Computer Arrived

As you know, if I could bike 700 kilometers, I would get a new computer. On August 17, 2010 I reached the goal. I finished the challenge 3 weeks, and 5 days early. I had completed my $500.00 Challenge much earlier. On September 2, 2010 the new computers arrived.

It took over an hour to install and configure mine. In the end it all turned out well. I wrote all of this on the day after I got the new computer. My computer has many new and high tech programs. The computer it's self, can hold over 1,000 gigabytes, has 4 gigabytes of ram(random access memory), over 3,000,000 operations per second 2monitors, and windows 7. As for the programs them self, I have Microsoft Office 2010, which I did not even know had come out yet.

My website is created on Macromedia Dreamweaver 8, which is over 5 years old. Now I am using Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, which is the newest software. It got renamed Adobe because Adobe bought Macromedia.

As I have said, the computer has 2 monitors, and windows 7, which turn out to be a great combination. You can drag programs between the 2 screens, as well snap them to places.

Snapping means dragging the window you are using to the left or right of the screens, and then re-sizing them to that half. You can also snap them to the top, which makes it full screen.

Windows 7 also has a speech recognition software on it. This means that the user can tell the computer what to do by literally talking to it. All you have to do is, turn it on, do a tutorial, and then you can use it. You have to do the tutorial to make it work. The computer will get trained to your voice, making it understand you better. You can tell it to do things like open programs, or make a mouse grid, so you can move your cursor with out even touching it. If you have a program like Microsoft Word open, you can dictate to it, so if you talk it types for you. That means you can just read your reports out loud instead of typing them!

Below is a picture of my new computer and ipad:

On August 18, 2010 I walked into Wilk&Wilk orthodontist just like I often do. However, usually I am going in to see when I will get braces, but this time I was actual getting them!! When I first came in I had no idea what to expect. When they called my name, they took me to the x-ray room. After taking a few x-rays, they took me into the back. There were rows and rows of chairs most of them filled with kids getting their braces tightened.
 The doctors took me over to an empty chair and told me to sit down. One of the doctors(I had 3) noticed that my mom was using her ipad. So for a long time we all sat and talked about the ipads. What a weird thing to happen when you were about to get braces. After a while, they all finished, so they started to work on me.

First they cleaned my teeth with bad tasting grit. Then they put on the first brackets. They would put a little glue on my teeth, put on the bracket, then harden the glue with UV light. To do the front brackets, the put a circle thing in my mouth to keep it open. Before they hardened those brackets though, they needed my orthodontist Dr.Brian Wilk, to check them.
When he came over he saw my moms ipad, so we started talking about them again. He asked me if I had flight control(which I ended up buying a soon as I got home from the orthodontist) and I tried to say no, but I couldn't since I had the thing in my mouth In the end, I got the braces on just fine. They were a little sore for the first couple days, but by the 4th day, which is the day I am writing it, I just post published this, they got better. I only have my front teeth on right now, so on October 21, 2010 I am going to get the bottom teeth on. I will post another post when I get the bottom braces, but until then keep coming back every monday to see what I have posted.

I also posted this from my ipad

New computer

Now that I have biked 700 kilometers and done 6 of my other challenge my dad will get me a new computer and $500.00 into my bank account. My computer has not yet arrived, because it had to be custom built. After we ordered the computers, a new version came out, so we got those I stead. My new computer will have 2, 24 inch monitors, 1 terabyte or 1000 gigabytes of storage, A 4 gig RAM, an operating speed of 3,000,000 operations per second, and have a 4 core processor, which means it can do up to 4 things at once. I know that that seems like a lot, but most of the current computers only have a 1 core processor. The computer will also have windows 7, and Microsoft 2007. I do not have it yet, but when i do I will post some pictures of it on here. I am still typing all of me blogs from my iPad. It rocks!!!

2010 Tractor Show

The 26 annual Essex County Steam and Gas Engine show, or the tractor show as I like to call it, took place on August 13, 14, and 15, 2010. I went to the show on the Sunday before the show started on the train with my grandma. Every year I go to the show to help my papa set up the show. He used to set up the entire show which included telling people where to parck their antique tractors or cars. This year though, he only did the setup of the feature tractor which was Oliver tractors and machinery. We spent a whole week from Sunday to Sunday setting up the show, then exhibiting tractors. This year I exhibited my 1958 moto mower lawn tractor. In the end the show was a huge success. This is also the 8 out of 8 post of my summer challenge. Which means that once I bike 60 more kilometers I will get a fancy new computer, and $500.00. Although I do not need to post any more posts, I will still try to post one every Monday. Good by for now!!
