Just had a cold front go through. High temp dropped from 85 on Monday to 72 today, Yosemite and points north got rain, we got nothin' but wind. Forecast to hit 80 again Wednesday & Thursday, then back down to 69 on Friday when another cold front comes through. But the weather-guessers think this time we'll get a little rain.......

*swipes bacon and toast*

Hmmmm, it's been awhile since I had a peanut butter & bacon sandwich. Now what kind of bread shall I toast - wheat, raisin, or sourdough?

Right angle on the left with a marker at 45 degrees. Obviously part of a machine.

Similar pair of angle marks on the opposite side of center.
Reminds me of the angle guide on my father's table saw.

"Life isn't fair?" Surely you jest!
"I never jest. And don't call me Shirley!"

Couldn't resist. But James' comments also reminded me that one of my cousins believes the Brockman/Karohl side of the family is distantly related to the German philosopher Nietscke(sp?), the one who wrote "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and said "God is Dead". I think God had the last word on that one.....

I remember him more for the statement "What doesn't destroy me makes me stronger." I agree with him on that, but I have noticed that dealing with adversity and NOT letting it destroy you is almost instinctive for some, but must be learned by most others. Mostly you learn from others who have been there and done that, and probably got help from someone else along the way....

The guy who said "No man is an island, alone unto himself" was right. We humans are social animals, we need to be part of the community. By reaching out to the community, we find people who can and will help us deal with our problems. We all need that little bit of help sometimes. And it's only right to give some in return, when the opportunity presents itself.

Where's Mark with a link to Bill Withers.......

Late night listening to The Oasis, a classic Jazz show on the local Public Radio station. Can't stand the NPR national talkers on during the daytime, but love The Thistle & Shamrock on Sunday nights, and all the local programming, mostly classical and jazz. I donate $25 a month, and get my money's worth evenings and weekends. That's a win....

Winning on a sunny Easter Sunday,
No Bingo today, but I'll be going over later for a small members-only function.
Praying God's continuing Grace, Peace, and Guidance upon each and every one of us......
11) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Is “Nessie” still alive and doing well? (Message 1506578)
Posted 3 days ago by Profile Donald L. Johnson
The Scottish tourist industry makes millions every year perpetuating this myth, and it keeps a lot of people in jobs. Of course Nessie doesn't and never has existed, but it's a lot of good fun, and long may it last :-)

Visited Loch Ness in 1981, a pit-stop returning to HMS Faslane on a bus trip to the Wm. Teacher's bottling plant in Glasgow. Box lunch at a local pub and some time in the Gift Shop. Nessie chose not to grace us with her(?) presence, but still a lovely area and a fun stop for a bunch of American submarine sailors.....

Hi Chris I Know we know each other a little bit. but I just wanted to say God Bless you and God bless your Mum and dad. My mum committed suicide in 1952 when I was 13. I have been scared all my life. I'm not a very smart person. so I never got an education or a trade I was scared all my life and just work from job to job. My dad was University teacher. he was a kind gentle person but always broke and in debt. I was always scared Bill collector banging on door. My dad went in to the logging business but was forced out and went broke. when I took my dad to the hospital when he was dying of lung cancer I should have stayed with him to hold his hand. but I was too scared if I did that if I did not go to my minimum pay job I would get fired ... that was 1980 I would get fired. My dad died before I got to work along that day .............. I'm a scared. I never married ... so I will die alone in this one room I rent. In I'm getting very old now and I'm crying as I type this.

I guess this the first time I have ever talked about myself ........... I am sorry and I apologize ..................

Byron, I don't think you owe anyone an apology for telling your story here - that is what this thread is for. Often, just putting the story into words releases some of the stress and loosens the fear's grip on you.

Having repeatedly asked God's Blessings on us, I believe you are a man of faith. My faith tells me that while you may be by yourself most of the time, you are NOT alone - God is with you, and will always be within reach. And we are here, to listen and talk, to laugh and joke and cry along with you.

our only home .....

tiny little planet Earth .....

be kind and gentle to one another and ...

God Bless, all you all

Yes, may God Bless us, every one.

Late night listening to my friends' band ZZAH.

No one playing this game ?

Bit of a clue - though the edges are rounded, it is used in a scraping action.

Okay, so not a shoehorn or orthotic.

Would this tool be used in a home-improvement project in the bathroom?
