Flickr app 3.0? Hopefully it will be better than the new web site.
Flickr app 3.0? Hopefully it will be better than the new web site.
Seriously. The new website blows. - Spidra Webster
I'll fire up the new app, see what has changed. - Stephan Planken
I have to say, it looks slick but it is not as user friendly. Before you could scroll through the list of contacts and swipe horizontally to see more photos by that contact. That seems to be gone. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Plus, for your own photos there was a quick list view with tiny thumbnails and a quick summary. All I see now is the time view where you have to two each photo to see details. (I used it to quickly scan privacy settings of photos.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Everything requires additional taps, like viewing comments or a list of who faved. Why not display them below the photo? I'll downgrade to the previous 2.x tomorrow morning. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Nothing like getting an email late in the day on April 16 telling you your tax returns were rejected. Thanks Turbo Tax for not catching the error that just cost me $600!
:( - Katy S
Noooooo... :( - Anne Bouey
A data entry mistake or an actual problem with the calculations? - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Data entry. I fixed that error but they were rejected again (twice) because now they are late. They were on time originally. Now I have tp figure out how to resubmit. I don't know... fourth time's the charm? - Elena
Damn. Sorry :( - Stephen Mack
Oh noes. :(( - Tamara J. B.
Sorry to hear that. I've done the same a few years ago. Hope you can get this sorted out. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Me: I've hardly ever seen snakes camping. Her: They probably have trouble finding little sleeping bags.
If they did, would they also pretend to be inchworms? - Anika
LOL, yeah getting into the bags may also be an issue. :) - Ken Morley
"Her" made me chuckle :) - Eivind from Android
"She who shall be obeyed" was too long. ;) - Ken Morley
I imagined big snakes in knee high socks. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
There are certain places where it is advisable to shake out your sleeping bag before getting into it, Between the snakes, the spiders and the scorpions it's just good policy. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
They don't have that problem in Australia. With spiders as big as truck engines you can easily see they have taken over your sleeping bag. - Stephan Planken
And your boots... don't forget to check your boots. - Ken Morley

OMG. Today is Wednesday. I thought it was Thursday. :(
Oh, I HATE when that happens! - vicster: full-bodied
I full on made enchiladas and poured wine so I could be ready for Scandal. It's Wednesday!!! - Betty Write
Enjoy the wine and tomorrow just repeat. :-) - Stephan Planken

Forget inbox 0 with Outlook; it restricts the selection.
Forget inbox 0 with Outlook; it restricts the selection.
Right clicking the archive, empty folder, yes I'm sure, done. Easier than I thought. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Oh, look at that. Snow on the ground.
Good, because I forgot what it looked like. </sarcasm> - Stephan Planken from iPhone

2% battery and he won't reply to my texts. WELL FINE! *flounces away*
His battery died. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Dumb question: Can I establish a new VPN tunnel inside an existing VPN?
The answer is yes. You know, in case you were wondering. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

The cat stopped eating, and my sister is pursuing a job that is, at minimum, a 12-hour flight away (with a 6-hour time difference). So, you know, things could be better.
If you need them, hugs from afar. - Julian
(((Meg))) - Jenny H. from Android
**hugs** - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks guys. Vet appt is Tuesday AM, but presumably drawing blood will be required, and I don't think that's possible, so I have no idea. - Meg VMeg
Oh no. - Marie from iPhone
thinking of you here. - Marianne
xoxoxoxoxoxo <-- you get all of the kisses and hugs i have. - jambina
:-( - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Sorry to hear it, Meg. - Steele Lawman
Thinking of you out here, too. - Catherine Pellegrino
Nooooooo! I am so sorry. I will think good thoughts for Jeffrey and come knock sense into Ellen's head if need be. Hugs in the meantime. - laura x from iPhone
They're keeping her today for tests and subQ fluids. Current guess is kidney disease/failure. - Meg VMeg
keep us posted, pls. - Marie
I stayed 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.

Accidentally posted the uncropped versions in my post made a few minutes ago. Here are the cropped (and zoomed) pics. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
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
I started early spring cleaning a while back. It is surprising how many accounts I was unable to remove. But yeah, deleting your Yahoo account will affect Flickr as well. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Had the vehicle’s A/C on for the first time this year! Maybe spring isn’t imaginary? Currently sunny and +2°C.
Don't question it. Just enjoy. :D - Tamara J. B.
59°F here tonight. - Big Joe Silence
You're right, Tam. I walked between stores with the girls while my wife drove the vehicle over, it was great. Later this week I see 60% chance of snow. And thanks for rubbing that in, Joe. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Canadians put the AC on when temps hit 2C? - Spidra Webster
Driving with that bit of sun made it rather warm inside. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Y'all are maple nuts. ;-P - Spidra Webster
I've had the luxury of turning off the heater/fan for most of the last week, but this morning I had to crank both up to medium high. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Dang! Changing passwords across all sites is a PAIN IN THE KEISTER!
It gives you a lot a time to consider the real value of whether being online is a good idea. - Greg GuitarBuster
Unless you know sites have revoked old certificates what's the point. (If that's what you were referring to.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
You might want to check the sites via to see if you're changing them too early. Also assuming it's due to the Heartbleed/OpenSSL issue. - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
I've been checking out which one's have implemented the OpenSSL patch and resetting those. I' ve also been continuing the process that I go through every year to change passwords, though it's getting to the point where quarterly seems like the maximum interval I should risk. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
With close to 350 passwords, I know how you feel. :-/ - April Russo
Whoa! That's about 10x as many as I'm dealing with. But then again, I don't get out much. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Maybe if I got out more, I wouldn't have as many. (in my defense, I'd have to say at least a third are work related) - April Russo
This is the fastest I've completed any project. Purchased on Thursday, finished on Sunday!
Great job! - Tamara J. B.
Nice! - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Finally putting this 2013 thing to rest. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

I asked my one year old to give me a hand so she came up to me and grabbed my hand. :-)
I realized I have always been using the word "help" because that's how we have always signed to ask or offer help. I think this confused her a bit. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
So sweet - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I lost the password to my router, so I couldn't give it to my sister's SO, which he needed to get some work done online this morning. Since I was going to need it for other reasons sooner or later, I decided to reset the router to the factory defaults and setup a new one. Bad idea.
Turns out that because my router is more than 3 years old (man o man time flies!) Netgear won't do diddly squat unless I pay $130 for 6 mos. support, or $40 for a one time deal. I told 'em I may as well go out and by the latest router (with free support) instead. Apparently I need to update the firmware, which would be a piece of cake if I had internet access. Guess I'll have lug everything to Starbucks and do it with their wifi. I've never had a problem getting support on an older device (except computers, of course. When 6 months of extended support costs more than the device cost,in the first place, I can't imagine too many people taking the deal. Next time I'll make damn sure I don't lose all of my setting, setup notes and miscellaneous rambling notes during the process of moving! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
I had heard Netgear had terrible support, but this sounds like extortion! - Anika
Why did you need to contact them in the first place? Plus, often you can export the config for later. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
You're thinking logically and coherently, Stephan. Neither of those elements was in play in last night's situation. There other extenuating circumstances, but the crux is that I inadvertently blasted ALL of the settings rather just the few that I intended. That and a nervous sister's boyfriend breathing down my neck caused a tension-filled (and fueled) episode of borkiness. It wasn't pretty. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
That charge is a little crazy. Why do you need to update firmware to reset your password? - Eric - Watch Me Now
You could flash a free, open source firmware to it. DD-WRT springs to mind. - Steel Penguin Slippy from Android
Yoke, I was told that I needed to update the firmware after the tech support guy had me run a few cursory tests. Based on the results, he said that the update was necessary and there would a (huge) charge for him to help with it. I've downloaded the firmware update to my phone via the cellular network, so hopefully I'll be able to get back up and rolling then. In the meantime I've... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
I vote you tell sister's boyfriend that Starbucks has free wifi. - Spidra Webster
Haha.I actually suggested that, even though he works remotely, they require him to work at specific times, starting at 4 a.m. It's an odd situation for many reasons! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Can't you just reset the router and use the default password? It's usually on a label on the router. - Jenny H. from Android
That's what we started with, Jenny. But that's apparently when something went awry. The cable modem is connected to the ISP and the computer's Ethernet connection with the router seems to be unlocked, but the router isn't bridging the computer/modem gap. That's when the Netgear tech guy said the firmware was the problem... and the rest is history. Once I can get through to confirm the ISP login parameters for the router setup, hopefully things will be copacetic once more. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Ah, as I reread the opening post, I realize that I left out some key information. (I was posting from my smartphone, which only shows one short line of the typed text in the edit box. No wonder everyone was thinking I must be a total nimnal, which I am, but that's beside the point. ) Suffice it to say that the factory reset wasn't behaving as expected, and only then did I discover that... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Ugh. 22% battery! Can't stick around here and shoot photos. Taking my lame phone home to charge. Maybe I can get some sewing done...
Not sure of the phone will sew well on low battery... - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Once I'm home I'll plug it in though. Duh. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Okay, y'all, let's flood FF with all the things we love about Tamara. Time to put massive amounts of positive energy out there for her and the baby.
I love that today I found the photo booth photos she insisted we take after seeing the Muppet movie together (the one with Jason Segal). - Corinne L
I love that she is generous, silly, funny, and always knows the right things to say when I am going through it. - Corinne L
I love that, now matter how frantic her life is, she always has time to check in on her friends to make sure we are all okay. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how she believes in good. Even when life is shit, Tam always believes in good. I aspire to emulate that. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how Tam always cares about how her friends are doing/feeling, even when she's going thru it herself. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I love how she's always responding to me with DMs that are super helpful like kids activities and Meetup groups. She takes a post where I say I need to do something and she kickstarts me into action with concrete ideas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love how generous, kind and thoughtful she is. And how she always knows when to DM me with a good word or smile. - Mary Carmen
I love, love her smile. So pretty in pictures, but in person she really does light up a room! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Her generosity of spirit is huge, and so real, I can't help but love her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aww. Thanks, you guys. I love you all. I really do try to be a great person and friend because I genuinely care. I know I could always do more and be better but I'm grateful that you guys feel loved or special in whatever big or small way as a result of our friendship. I want the best for all of you. Xoxo - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Big smooches to you, Tam. - Corinne L
That in amongst all this she finds time to check in with Helen and be a cheerleader :) - Pete
You got there before me... in amongst all this crap, there was still a message for me this morning wishing me a great day ;-) And I've not yet told y'all about my amazing birthday present. Or how she listens to me moaning about work every week! Or the great advice she gives. Or how she's brought Josh Jackson into my life *swoon*... - Heleninstitches
I love how thoughtful and generous and kind she is :oD - Melly
I simply adore Tamara's sunshine! <3 - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's always very eager and generous with running advice and I appreciate that. She's a wonderful lady. - Jed from iPhone
I love how she never gives up, no matter how much crap life throws her way. How she responds to life's adversities, not pretending everything is always okay, admitting when she is having a shit day, but always ready for a brighter day tomorrow. She has a lovely soul, she's a great hugger, and she has a radiant smile. - Jenny H.
Thank you. I barely slept last night and my heart still hurts, yes, I'm angry too, but it was such a bright spot to wake up to these messages. I appreciate the love. *group hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Tam is always looking out for others' well-being. She is very loving, caring and very energetic. She is persistent, doesn't know what quitting means. She is intelligent. And all of that will come on handy once Miss M is here soon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Tam is very generous and thoughtful, and she sends out lovely cards. - John (bird whisperer)
I lub TamTam, bcoz shes' always positive and always is very thought of others ! - Peter Dawson
Where do I begin? She's funny. She's cute. She's got a great laugh. She's very sweet. She's a great motivator. She's sends out great cards. She likes John Hughes movies. She makes Adam happy. She's Tam Tam. :) - Steven Perez
She is by all accounts an amazing person. I've never met her in real life, yet I have lovely notes from her on my cork board and fridge b/c that's the thoughtful and genuinely kind person she is. I feel beyond lucky to share a name with her. If she needed me to go to California and organize a protection detail for her and the baby, I would do it. For real. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
All of the above and everything else! - Katy S from iPhone
She sent me cookies, internationally, to encourage an act of creativity I was trying. Delicious. Tam invests in people. So lovely, she. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Beauty and heart. Glenda the Good Witch ;) - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
I like the way Micah explained it. Tam invests in people is so true. A bright light and loving soul. - Janet from FFHound!
How can I find the words to express how much it means to me that you guys care and "get" me? I appreciate every kind word and sentiment. Much love to all of you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Tamara J. B.
Brent, it's on you to give her a big hug from all of us tomorrow. And say hello to baby M while you're at it. :-D - Corinne L

What sucks about me is if I give an online dating prospect my name & what I do he can totally stalk me because my name's so unique.
Aw, shoot, that's awful :( - Jennifer Dittrich
"Hi, I'm Zoolemma and I'm a tax accountant." - Stephen Mack from iPhone
there is no Dana? - Big Joe Silence
I'm Z and I work in advertising! >.> - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Amie Lue Z. ? - Not Me
Well that's just lying and I'd rather not start a friendship on lies. It can end with lies but not start. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
It's not lying, it's just backwards. Plus if you think about it it's starting where it ends. :P - Not Me
But then they'll start calling me Amy or whatever other convoluted pronunciation they come up with then when they get my real name it's even more fucked up... Le sigh. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Sue ~ Zue; and you could pass it off as a typo... :) - Ken Gidley
^True, it's just one row off. - Not Me
That could work actually... Boom. I'm using that as my pre-name-before-I-get-to-trust-him name. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
You're a good person, Sue. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
(No, seriously.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Do you know where your boss lives?
I have no boss. Mwahahahaaaa! - Jenny H. from Android
Yes. When we started the company, I worked out of their home office for 18 months. - Johnny
I do. Mwahahahaaaa! - Angelo
Level 10. - Mark Trapp
Yes ... He's my dad. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yes, yes, yes, and yes. I have 4 bosses/jobs. - Not Me
Yes (boss), yes (dean), yes (pres). - Julie Kane from iPhone
yep - Steve C
Yes - Janet
Pretty close? I know the neighborhood, not the actual house. - Jennifer Dittrich
I only know he lives two provinces over. All I need to know. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I know the bar he lives near. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
One in St. Louis, and the others in Australia. That's as close as I know. And one of the ones in Australia is originally from Chicago. - April Russo
Yup. - Jed from iPhone
Of course I do. She lives with me, after all. - Uli
Yes, and that's mainly because he lives a few doors down from another coworker whose house I've been to. I also knew where my bosses from Iowa (first one), FT Illinois library job, first grad school assistantship, and second State Farm posting lived as I was invited to their houses at some point. I knew where my high school boss lived because it was my dad :) - Katie
Yes, although it's been about a year since I was there so I doubt I could find the place. I know which street (it's like 3 blocks from my street). - Marianne
Yes. He's sleeping next to me. - Anika
in a vague "he lives in that area" kind of way, but other than that, no. - ellbeecee
I know what stop she lives off of, and I know things about her building, but not the actual address. - Meg VMeg
Yes. I've slept at her house and pooped in her toilet and worn her clothes. - Melly
Yep. - Steven Perez
Yep. I am him. - SAM
x__x melly - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Yup. I take her with me everywhere. She even sleeps with my husband. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
It was either wear her clothes or sit in her paddling pool with her husband and kids in just my underwear! - Melly
Yes. - Anne Bouey
No but it's very easy for me to find out. I just don't care to know. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Not anymore. He's moved since the last time I've been to his house. - ronin

"Avoid rivers, valleys and low lying areas." -- So I need to avoid going home. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Avoid them due to flooding? - Spidra Webster
Yes. Water has almost reached our barn. - Stephan Planken
Yikes. I hope it gives you guys a miss. - Spidra Webster
Uh oh. I hope it doesn't reach your house! - Jenny H. from Android
Our house is six feet or so above the barn, so I think we will be OK. But boy, does the water rise fast. And the gophers are already migrating towards the house so we will need some extra cats this summer. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Wow. I'm glad you have that buffer for your house and it hopefully won't reach the house. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
This must mean your temps have finally crept above 0? #Fuckyeahsilverlinings? - Eivind
Double digits even. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Some people are so proud to never eat at a McDonalds they practically beg you to supersize their ego by being wow'd.
I don’t even own a TV. - Akiva
Well I sold my tv and gave the proceeds to provide starving children a happy meal. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I sold my TV and used the proceeds to provide the starving children a meal made from free-range chicken. - Jed
I went and bought a TV so I could watch the report about me selling my TV - Johnny from iPhone
I just want UHF knobs. - Akiva
I sold my tv so I could afford to supersize my snow blower so I could make it to town to buy a Happy Meal. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
omg, I totally forgot that McDonalds even exists! - Meg VMeg
Akiva wins for the best reference ever. "Area man constantly mentioning he doesn't own a television" - Not Me
I buy my McDonald's #1 after I check out at a Wal-Mart. Note: McD inside Wal-Mart: extra points. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
i don't generally eat McDonalds, but i loved their Quarter Pounder mit Cheese where they wrap a couple of rolls of quarters in American cheese and then pound it up your pooper. - Big Joe Silence
I stole Sarah McLachlan's dog. - Steve C
I live around the corner from a McDonalds and have friends that hang out there all day, every day, just so they can keep getting free refills on coffee all day long, while they do nothing better with their lives than loiter in a fast food restaurant, gossiping. - April Russo
I only watch Beta tapes. - Mo Kargas
Super 8. - Akiva
Oh yeah, I only watch Woody Allen films that are on Super 8. - Mo Kargas
I only eat bacon. - Jenny H. from Android
Stephen Mack
Just had a meeting with the CEO and received a gift package in recognition of my 15 years at TiVo. Wow. Feeling thankful and appreciated.
They should appreciate you because from what I've seen, you kick a lot of ass. - Spidra Webster
Thanks, Spidra! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Cool! So nice to be appreciated! (Thought they might have finally given you a screensaver, though. ;-P ) - Anne Bouey
Congratulations, Stephen! I'm positive it's very well deserved! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Congrats Stephen! - Me
Congrats! I'll be right over to help you drink that Dom Perignon! Lol! - Yvonne from FFHound!

Congrats! Stephen is the man! - imabonehead
Thank you, everyone! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Congrats, Stephen! I'm convinced it's well deserved :) - Eivind
Well, they give it to everyone who makes it 15 years. ;) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I hope you'll still drink Dom P from the TiVo trophy like a race winner :) - Eivind
Awesome! Very well deserved. :) - Jenny H. from Android

In a few months we get to do it all over again. - Stephan Planken
Winter for three months is fine. Four months? Tolerable. Five or six months? Damn near unbearable. Especially when day-after-day near record cold coincides with near-record seasonal snowfall totals. If I owned a gun I'd have to lock away and give someone else the key. The temptation to shoot something, or myself, might prove too much. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

She likes Lego, drawing, babies, Little People, playing outside, My Little Pony, going to daycare, shopping and visiting, dancing, and Star Wars ^_^ - Melly from FFHound!

Happy Birthday! My little girl has a #3 birthday on April 6 as well! 40-3. And her middle name is Emilia. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Happy birthday cherub - Mo Kargas
Once again, Melly, I have to comment on how happy Emily seems to be in (nearly) all of her photos. You are doing a wonderful job of raising her. The pictures you post make those of us who view them happier for having seen them. Keep doing the 'good mom' thing! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Happy Birthday, Emily! - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
happy bday! - imabonehead
It does not take much to make her smile. I can always tell when she's under the weather just from her smile (or lack thereof). She's always been a very happy, sunshine-y girl! I don't think she will ever suffer from resting bitch face ;o) - Melly

Flickr stats for yesterday regarding visits: - Flickr referrer 87 - Unknown referrer 466 😤 💩 💣
Yeah, I wish Flickr would work on that rather than yet another crappy cosmetic redesign that makes things less usable. - Spidra Webster
I mean, honestly. I can get better fucking information from Google Analytics and I'm *paying* Flickr. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

There's at least half a foot of snow out there, but I just don't want to deal with it. A couple of my 20' shrub trees are nearly horizontal because the combination of ice followed by snow weighs a ton on the branches. I'll just resurface from my burrow in a few days. The temps get back into the 40's tomorrow. That should take care of it.
Also, I could show pictures... but they'd look like all of the other pictures of heavy wet snow that I've posted over the past couple years. You're welcome. #ObligatoryWeatherPost - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Dude, move pit forge god forsaken snow belt! - Janet from FFHound!
Alas, I vowed to myself and my sons (who are my "moving muscle") that my move into this house would be my last unless I became too incapacitated to live on my own. Honor requires that I sleep in the bed I made for myself. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to cut down those damned trees though. I'll save on water in the summer, and have less grief in the winter. They're that last 2 of the 7... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Tell me again what this "snow" thing is, please? - Uli
WTH pit forge was to be south. SMH autocorrect. - Janet from FFHound!
Haha... I figured that, or that it was code for "move the F*CK out of the"... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Driveway is cleared. Sidewalks are cleared. Snowing has resumed. I tried to knock some of the snow off the overburdened tree branches, but with the slushy ice as the first layer, it won't budge. All I manage to do is shake off a few chunks here and there, and get a bunch evergreen needles down the back of my neck. Those trees are on their own. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
If the snowplow comes through and dumps a wall of this stuff at the end of the driveway, I'm not moving it. I've got food that'll last me a week, and plenty of squirrels in the yard if I get desperate. There are even deer in the woods if it comes to that. Not sure if my wrist-rocket slingshot is up to the task, though. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Remember how sad Bambi was when her daddy Buck didn't come home! - Janet from FFHound!
Trust me, Janet. The only way a deer is gonna get injured by me is if it sprains an ankle while skewering me with its rack. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

We still have tons of snow and ice in the yard. I have been so sick of working myself to death clearing it, I left it. Next week is supposed to be +15°C so I better get the canoe ready. In the main yard I'm already walking in an inch of water. So done with winter. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
