This afternoon I drove to my hometown (about an hour) to see my parents. On the way back, driving into the setting sun on a winding 2 lane highway, I came upon a total of 8 Amish horse-drawn carriages...
...and a dozen grazing deer along the roadside. All of this may sound bucolic, or even idyllic, but believe me, when you're squinting to look through glare of a low setting sun directly aligned with the road you're on, STRESSFUL is the operative word. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Dusk is never a good time to be driving along a 2 lane highway bordered by woods for mile after mile. The deer like to forage for food along the edge of the highway, and are skitterish about approaching vehicles. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

I had a contractor friend give me a rough estimate of what it would cost today to take care of ALL of the major projects/renovations/replacements that I have on my list. I knew it would be totally unrealistic for my budget right now, but it was actually less than I expected. So i guess this is good news?
To replace the roof, soffits, fascia and gutters, ALL of the windows (except the bay window in the kitchen dining nook which was added after initial construction and actually DOES insulate somewhat) would run about $25K. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Adding an exterior stair off of the balcony deck to the back yard adds another $2600. And the last (and lowest priority) improvement would be to add maintenance free siding over the existing redwood, which is the stuff that gave me so much grief when I did last summer's painting project. That would bring the total to $36K. So, hey ol' FF buddies... ol' pals... I'll send you some naked pics for a $5K contribution! For $10K I'll send pics of someone else! For $20K I promise not to send any! ;-P - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seriously, I was expecting the roof alone to cost $20K. I figured the windows would cost $10K or so, but that was for just the biggest ones. He's figuring in the french doors to the balcony, and all of the smaller windows in the lower level and the bathrooms. So that's a relief, in an odd way. Maybe if I can do it in stages over 10 years or so, it might be manageable. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I remember hearing a financial advisor on WPR telling a prospective home buyer that he should expect to spend about 10% of the purchase price annually for maintenance and needed improvements. My jaw dropped, but now that doesn't seem so extreme. I guess I/we were fortunate in our previous homes, because we never came close to that ratio. On the otherhand, I could do a lot more of the regular maintenance myself, as well as some "special" projects. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
And just to be clear, I'm kidding (KIDDING!) about donations... too many people with real and urgent needs out there. (I would sell the naked pics, however.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
We put a lot of money (for us) into the house when we bought it. We couldn't afford to get the yard, kitchen, or master bath done. It'll be a while. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
The windows will give you immediate return on heat/air conditioning. - Janet from FFHound!
Definitely, especially in another winter like we just had! (And are still having...) That would be my highest priority except that the roof will soon reach a point where I'll either have to go with stop gap repairs year after year, or get the whole thing done right and not have to deal with it anymore. (And probably not the next one or two owners after me.) But still, shelling out $300... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seems exceptionally reasonable what type of roofing will it be and is it a re-shingle or complete tear down to frame? We're in the same boat I do most work but am now paying for major landscaping work. - Steve C
Oh, and a wood stove in the lower level. Which will will really help keep the bedroom areas of the house warmer at night. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I know, it does seem reasonable, Steve. The roof is warranted for 30 years, and the shingles will be the "architectural style." He'll do a complete tear down and lay down the ice water barrier around the perimeter and the "valleys"... I was considering a metal roof, which carries a 50 year warranty, but I won't be around for most of that and I'm not sure the eventual buyer would view it... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Wow in that case that is a great deal! Roof alone down to tear down and replace is at least $15K - Steve C
The guy who is providing the estimate is trying to do a lot of projects this spring, summer and fall so that he can finish purchasing a piece of property up nort' and build himself a small cabin to serve as his abode in retirement. As such he's willing to offer better than normal pricing so he can get the amount of work he wants. He knows his stuff, but I do have to watch him a bit on... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Commenting on that "10% for maintenance..." Wow. If that was true around here, we'd move into a rental, since that would be considerably more than our total annual spending on *everything.* That is, house maintenance, food, utilities, clothing, entertainment...everything. - Walt Crawford
I'm glad I'm not the only one who balked at that number, Walt. In the three houses that I've previously owned, I'd say we spent 10% - 15% of the mortgage *payment* each month. Many months it was much less, but then an occasional big item would need repair or replacement. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Zuckerberg Vows Facebook Will Shoot Down Google Drones : The New Yorker - http://www.newyorker.com/online...
Zuckerberg Vows Facebook Will Shoot Down Google Drones : The New Yorker
"MENLO PARK, CA (The Borowitz Report)—One day after Google outbid Facebook for a manufacturer of solar-powered drones, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg served warning that his company was prepared to blow Google’s drones out of the skies. At a presentation for Facebook employees at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Zuckerberg announced plans to build a $24 billion Facebook laser shield, a global network of satellites capable of identifying and incinerating Google drones in midair. Zuckerberg delighted his audience with a brief animated demonstration showing a Facebook satellite locking in on a Google drone and obliterating it with a green laser. “Unfriended, bitch,” said Zuckerberg, to a roaring ovation from his employees." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Within an hour, Google responded with a stern warning of is own, vowing, “Any act of aggression against Google drones will not stand.” To that end, the company announced that it was prepared to shoot down Facebook’s laser satellites with a long-range super cannon called Google Gun. " - Jessie
I put my money on Google. Zuckerberg will extract as much private information from participants as he can, but he'll end up ceding that actual destructive weapons battle to Google, or maybe Jeff Bezos. He's equally ruthless and I'm pretty sure he could take the other two in a fist fight. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Istayed up until 2:45 a.m. I had tracked down my camera tripod (mini-version) and thought I was all set. When the eclipse finally happened, I turned on my camera and the battery was dead. Doh! Ergo, these pics are taken with my low light limited, tripod non-compatible smartphone camera.

Pretty exciting, I know. Can't understand what caused my camera's battery to run down so soon. I also have a backup battery, but it wasn't where it is supposed to be, and a quick search yielded nothing in the time available. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Um... the pics posted on the Washington Post website are slightly more impressive than mine. For instance, you can actually tell that that dot is a heavenly body, and not some dust mote or inflamed pimple. And they did time lapse images of the moon traversing the sky and changing incrementally as it did so.

Sometimes... on occasion... I may use more words than necessary to express a thought or idea. Just thought I'd give you all a heads up on that.
Are you sure about that? - Kirsten
You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means - Steve C
"Heads up"? "Necessary"? "Thought"? (I do get confused on the "thought" thing. Because I get confused when I "think." Or at least when I "think" I'm "thinking" or "thought" I was "thinking"...which, truthfully, I may not have been. So I guess I just convinced myself that you meant something else...by "thinking." ... I rest my case. (And my keister, because I'm exhausted from all of that "thinking." - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Also, Kirsten, I thought I was sure, but now I just don't know... life is like that you know. You think you're on the right track and the *boom* something comes along to set your brain on another track. Like the time back in the late 70's when I was watching the UW homecoming game.

Nice brief writeup, and the Business Insider one is...I can't think of anything to say that couldn't be considered slander. Unfortunately, pretty much every newspaper & website that publishes stock information subscribes to the "move the Y axis to make it more dramatic" fault (have you *ever* seen a DJ500 daily chart with 0 as the zero point?). - Walt Crawford
That's even worse than Fox News! And it's so blatantly obvious! It's one thing to lop off the lower 90% of an ascending Y axis to exaggerate the extent of a change, but to invert it from ascending to descending when there is no compelling reason to do so (other than to mislead and misinform) is pathetic. Effing crooks is right! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Absolutely. The modified zero point is exaggeration; the Business Insider trick is outright deception. - Walt Crawford

How to Use Swales on Your Homestead - http://104homestead.com/swales-...
"Simply defined, a Swale is a Ditch dug on Contour that captures water so it can slowly soak into the land. We are all probably familiar with a ditch. Well then, what the heck does “on contour” mean?  The easiest way I have found to understand this concept is to think of a topographical map, which depicts changes in elevation." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Swales are important for controlling storm runoff. Ever moreso as more and more of our cities' surfaces become impermiable. We had one on the boundary between our sideyard and our neighbor's sideyard and it kept our basements from flooding many a time. In other words, swales are swell. #sorry #dontHitMe - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Say hello to my leetl' frien'! My leetl' squirrely frien', that is. Pics are taken through my bay window, so the glass is a factor. Still he was pretty cooperative, holding poses to allow several shots, except when that dreary gray squirrel came and ruined the moment. Then he (she?) went to a higher branch, and we continued.

I guess FF must order the pics by filename rather than the order added to the photo queue. I'll have to start renaming the files to get the proper sequence. Anyway, this is the almost-albino-but-less-so-than-a-couple-weeks-ago squirrely friend. (The long qualifier is to differentiate him/her from all of my other squirrelly friends, many of whom are here on FF.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Also, it's very difficult to get a photo unobstructed by branches when BRANCHES ARE EVERYWHERE! The fact that my camera's automatic flash would kick in at random--thereby spooking my subject--didn't help matters. I would never make it as a wildlife photographer. "Excuse me, Mr. Lion? Excuse me? Could you just hold that pose for another moment while I change this from "landscape" to "portrait"... that would REALLY be helpful! You're awesome. YES YOU ARE. WHO'S THE AWESOME LION! That's right! YOU ARE!" - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

I believe we've been connected almost since I first came here regularly almost 6 years ago. (Can it be that long?) Anyway, he's apparently blocked me. Why does errbody hate me all of a sudden!?!
I honestly don't recall any "spats" here, or even any recent exchanges of any sort. Despite my best efforts (not that great, I grant you) I guess I've become more annoying than I thought. Dang. But, well, I shall forge ahead, for I yam what I yam. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

After staying up way too late to take pics of the lunar eclipse, I had to get up just a couple hours later to take daughter to her 7 a.m. shift at the UW library, and to drop off her artwork at the Fine Arts building on the way. I greeted her at the door with a vanilla latte when I arrived to pick her up. She's gonna miss her ol' pappy...
I'm making DAMN SURE of that! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I should clarify that she always protests that she can just walk and carry the three armloads/backloads of stuff. But seriously, she's my daughter. It's one of the increasingly fewer things that I can do to be of assistance. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
That's really sweet! - Yvonne from FFHound!
She has less than 4 weeks of classes left, and it's going by really quickly. Fortunately she'll be back here for 6 weeks or so this summer as a German-language "camp" counselor. (No NAZI uniforms will be issued or tolerated.) So I've got that to help ease the transition. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Not necessarily in chronological order... apparently. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
If I had stayed up another 30 minutes the moon would've been blood red. But I didn't. Cuz I was tired. Still am. Hopefully the next of the tetrad series will peak at a more midwest-friendly time of night. ("Time of day" doesn't really get us where we need to be, y'see.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Also, the spare camera battery that eluded me at 2:30 a.m. was found almost exactly where it was supposed to be, and is nearly fully charged without intervention from me. It's almost as if my brain wasn't functioning on all cylinders at that hour! However, I haven't located that charging cable OR the SPARE charging cable! This is why I should never "organize" my stuff. Finding it becomes infinitely more difficult. (At least by my half-arsed method of organizing.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Very nice, Mark. I didn't even attempt to stay up. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Thanks Stephan, it did turn out better than I expected given that I was trying to stabilize the camera with my hand propped at an odd angle on a wobbly fence railing. Just wish I'd had actual optical zooming capability. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

I terminated my Yahoo account last night. I use it so infrequently that I can never remember the password, so I end up resetting it and then not using it for another year. That includes the email account. Feels like tying up a dangling loose end. Should of done it long ago. Guess that means my Flickr account is done as well. (Have to confirm that.)
This is the year of the great unraveling of nearly two decades of cyber-entanglements. Now, if I could just figure out a way to wipe out that GeoCities webpage... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

While I can't say that I enjoyed the needle going all the way into the hip joint (even with local anesthetic) I'm really liking the result of the injection. Walking pain free and I can even lift my right leg into and out of the driver's area of the car without wincing. Better living through chemistry.
And after the 45 minute wait because I went there too early, it took all of 20 mintutes for the procedure. Half of that involved a thorough explanation of what was about to happen. Medical care has changed a lot since I was a young man. They never explained much of anything back then. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
sounds like I could use this. Who recommended this to you? - VALZ SCARLETTS MAMA
Val, my primary doctor referred me to an orthopod, who in turn recommended this cortisone injection directly into the hip joint using a flouroscope to make sure the needle was inthe right location. Otherwise the odds are about 70/30 in favor of proper placement. I had the first injection a couple years ago in the office of my primary doctor, but that was in more accessible part of the joint. This deeper injection directly into the joint should (hopefully) last more than a couple months. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

I'm probably going to have to pay another $40 copay today. Second one in as many weeks, and the fourth one in the past month. And it comes on top of the hospital bills I'm already paying off in installments. Even with insurance this business about trying to stay healthy is pricey.
Yeah, I really loathe deductibles. I wish we could spread them throughout the year on installment instead of all coming in Q1 of the year. - Spidra Webster
The hospital clerks always act as if co-pays are no big deal, because they're relatively small compared to the cost of the actual service. But that's kind of a skewed comparison since the co-pays are adding up to more than my food budget for recent months. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
The hospital's financial office is letting me pay the bill for my hospitalization in monthly installments, with a minimum of 10% each month. Of course, when you're talking about a balance of several $K it still hits pretty hard. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I began Medicare B when I retired Nov 1. I keep getting a $214 bill per doctor visit (I've had 2 visits since then). Called and found out that the office didn't notify Soc Sec until March 21! And it takes 30-90 days for MedB to kick in. In fact I should pay nothing since my copay should be picked up by my retirement plan. They assure me that I don't have to pay and the insurance will catch up. For now neither plan is paying because each one is waiting to be covered by the other plan. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I had a similar experience when my private health insurance (through my former spouse's employer) expired. I didn't know that I needed to notify Medicare that they were no longer my secondary insurer, mostly because I never designated them as such!
