Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show


Just some things to consider and tips if you're in the market for your first HAM radio. I'm still glad with the choice of the 817nd, however the antenna it comes with is not going to do much.
I bought a 2 meter Browning BR-159 antenna, and while in Des Moines I still wasn't picking up anything for quite awhile.
What I've come to terms with is that, in a small place like where I live, you're going to need to set up an external antenna, and right now it's just way too cold to deal with that. So once the weather warms up a little, hopefully I'll be getting better results.

Ep. #337 HAM Radio: Things to Consider Before You Buy

***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** A little change in pace - we ordered a box of Hello Fresh this week, and the first meal on the list is the creamy shrimp bruschetta, with monterey jack cheese on baguette toasts. Tiana toasted the baguette bread a little too long, but even in spite of that, I still gave it a solid 6. :-) Good start to Hello
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Our last meal from this box of Home Chef was the Sicilian shrimp risotto, with blistered tomatoes and breadcrumbs. This meal rated in as a 7 for me, 7 1/2 for Tiana, & 5 for Robin. Robin's picky, but if Tiana gave it that high of score, you know it's good. ;-) We love Home Chef, so we'll have another order from them
I wanted Britty to upload this drawing on my channel. She drew this as a graduation gift for a friend of her's; some of his favorite anime characters. :-) (Also the interesting song choice was based upon what reminded her of this friend) It took her about 18 hours, which she is sad to admit. She drew this using Adobe Photoshop CC, along with her Wacom Intuos4 tablet. Subscribe to Brittain's
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Second meal from our most recent order of Home Chef is the skillet chicken chasseur, with mushrooms and white wine. Tiana, surprisingly, gave this dish a 7; while I rate it a 6. It was still of excellent quality, and it didn't disappoint, as usual. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook:
While over at Grandpa's house, Tiana was the early riser and started making biscuits and gravy, just like Grandpa's. :-) Delicious and so easy to make. Subscribe: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** First dish from another box of Home Chef. This one was a Southern fried pork chop, with mac 'n' cheese and spicy green beans. I gave it a 7 - it all tasted pretty good for what it was. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

Mike gave me an old hand-me-down bow and I went over to their house to test out my skills. Well, my skills are just about nonexistent, but I did learn a few good tricks, especially that using a trigger is a better idea than not. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

After about 8 months, Jacob came over to finish his 40 meter QRP CW board. We ended up with 2 at the end of it, both with the same, confusing results: it transmits the code just as its supposed to, but when on high frequencies it also has a constant tone transmitted, which isn't right. BUT, it does work. Just need to find out what that incessant tone is and hopefully we'll figure it out.
THIS IS BY NO MEANS A TUTORIAL. WE JUST GIVE YOU A MEAGER IDEA OF HOW TO GET THE BELT REPLACEMENTS ACCOMPLISHED. Brittain's car had been complaining a lot the past few months, needing its belts replaced. So, finally, we decided she could change them herself with a little guidance from me. It took much longer than necessary, as I didn't remember as much as I'd like to profess. But we got the job
The last two days of our trip, Robin and the girls went to New Mexico to visit some friends who had recently moved there from Iowa. The drive through Red Mountain Pass put everyone a *little on edge,* but it wasn't as bad as the girls anticipated. ;-) They spent the night and then came back to Delta to pick me up, and we were back on the road to Iowa, home sweet homes.

We took the long way home to Delta from Vernal by going through Moab. We wanted to visit the Arches National Park, drive the self tour, and do some hiking. We stopped at the North and South Windows to do some hiking, and boy was it beautiful. A lot of breathtaking beauty and everyone enjoyed it. And the ride back to Delta seemed like an interesting one for the girls... ;-) Subscribe: http://...
The next two days of our trip, November 7th and 8th, my parents and us went Utah to spend a couple days in Vernal to check out the Dinosaur National Monument's quarry and auto tour, and then we went to the Utah Field House of Natural History. It was a fun day for Britty and I especially. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow #johnorjias
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** I ordered a meal from Home Chef to eat at my parent's house this past trip, and the dish we picked was the shrimp de jonghe penne with garlic butter bread crumbs. The girls cooking together in these conditions is usually a recipe for disaster, but despite the difficulties, they pulled though and it turned out awesome.
The family takes a trip down to visit my parents in Delta, Colorado. The first 3 days of our trip consisted of driving, dinner and Les Miserables karaoke, and the girls driving themselves up the Grand Mesa to take some extraordinary pictures. :-) Subscribe: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** This last meal from our food box of Home Chef is the sriracha sweet potatoes and avocado, with sugar snap peas and jasmine rice. This was another good meal or so I hear. ;-) I didn't try it because I hate sweet potatoes, but Robin and Brittain seemed to enjoy it pretty well: rating it a 6 and 7. Looking forward to the
