  1. Morning all.

    Saying of the day: if there are kilts, there will be pictures.

  2. Morning Andi and everyone,

    Sorry I haven't been around lately, but been under the weather lately. Down here I can see summer is coming and I'm really not looking forward to it. I'm still trying to figure out why so many old people come down South for the warmth (heat). If you live down here you don't live without air conditioning. So it seems to me that people move here to live with AC and then go out during mid-summer when they have to. As I've said before, I still don't see how my grandparents lived their entire lives without AC. My father tried to put one in their bedroom when they were old, but they wouldn't use it. I guess it's just how you were raised and the generations.

    I hope everybody has been doing good.

    Take care

  3. Oh I forgot to say. If Olivia drops by I was looking at YouTube and came across many videos with the titles of "Everything you need to know about Poutine". Everyone was singing its praises. :)

    1. Hi Candis,

      OK so now I want to try it. However if I did I think the only way I could is if it was in the frozen food section and could be microwaved. For some reason I think that is not they way it is made to be eaten. ;)

    2. No microwave ... definitely not. :D The fries have to be hot and crispy, the cheese curds fresh, the gravy poured over top melts the cheese ... but the curds retain their round form, only get melty from within. It's hard to describe. It's not one big gooey mess ... until it hits your mouth. :D

  4. Funny, how the rocks in the lower left corner look motion-blurred, but the rest don't. Maybe it's just focus.

    Whit! Good to see you! I think people move here because they don't like the cold. Of course, they redefine "cold" here, and don't insulate their houses too well. :-P

    About to launch an updated White Pickups. I'd caught a handful of typos a while back, and knew of a couple formatting glitches, and it has a new cover that goes with the one for Pickups and Pestilence. I found one more typo while double-checking the formatting, so now we're good. As for P&P, I let the family swallow up the time I was going to use to get it ready, so it's going to be delayed for a couple weeks. The usual crap and crud.

    More coffee… NOW…

  5. Hola, Whit, good to hear from you!

    I'm trying to suffer quietly with pollen/pressure changes - been nursing a headache for 3 days. Incipient visit from the fam (they arrive tomorrow evening) is stressing me, as well. Bah.

    At least it's nice outside.

  6. Whit, that is exactly why I would never want to move south. I don't really like AC but can't stand a humid heat.

    I would much rather be cold with a good wardrobe. I can always add an extra layer.

    Maria, hope you feel better and really enjoy the visit. Please say hi for me to your sister and BIL.

  7. Hiya Larry! Good to see you too. I agree with you about insulating the houses here. The only thing I can say is people who live on the coast have it better because they do have some breezes. Hope the launch goes good.

    Hi Maria! So sorry to hear about your allergies and headache. I don't get too many sinus headaches, but I have gone through 3 days of severe migraines before. I do hope you get to feeling better. Sorry also, but I got a giggle about "Incipient visit from the fam". I was thinking once I retired and moved back here there was nothing but family around me. All the way from mother and siblings to cousins so far out (5th-6th) I don't even know how we're related. I have to admit in my case it has been good to have some family around, but I'd still like to be able to sometimes say MYOB. :)

    Hi dina! I know exactly what you mean about humid heat. I can't stand it either. But down here we grew up with AC, so it's not a thing of like or dislike. It just is. However, while in the military I was always stationed in Northern climates and I became acclimated to the cold. I do much prefer that to summers down here. I agree with you on extra layers. As said before, you can only take so much off, but you can always put more on.

    Everyone take care,

    Whit
