Has anyone watched the new version of "Overboard"? The original was male carpenter and female rich bitch, the latter having amnesia and the former taking advantage of that. The new one is the opposite where the guy gets amnesia and the woman takes advantage. If you've seen it, what did you think? Is it even worth a watch?

This will be a watching and listening experience:

The Kentucky Shakespeare Players are going to present Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio play downtown at Louisville's NPR affiliate station. I think I'm going to go -

Now only if this were on AM radio, imagine the possible havoc...

In this day of "Fake News"?! No one would believe it.

The Moroccan Flic-Flac. No personal encounters - but a fine reason to enjoy a night-in.

They didn't show the bit at the end where it throws up.

Gnu,

I love the feather photo. Very artsy-fartsy. ;-)

Just got back from the cemetery, and no swans to be found, today, but a variety of ducks greeted me -

What type of duck is this fellow with the pompadour?


Could that be the infamous Trump duck?

Last week, on my way home from work, I got off an Exit, and was on the ramp to another road. To my left was a triangle of trees, surrounded by roads. Right next to the ramp I was on, was a little baby black bear. I didn't see the mother, and there was no way he could get back to the woods without crossing a road. He was the cutest little thing. I didn't want him to get hurt, so when I got home, I called the state police, and they said the bear had already been reported. I hope the little fellow is OK.

Steve

God bless you for reporting it. I hope someone did something. I'd probably have stopped and helped it cross the road.

Crab Spider?

No, I don't think so. Spiny orbweaver.

That is an amazing and interesting spider type.

Body shape is quite unique.

Do you know what it's 'official' name is?

Is it edible?.. (Just in case one travels 6000km and decides to creep into my mouth whilst I am sleeping.. )

Good macro.

A spider in my back yard. It's really difficult to photograph things tiny like this. ;-)

I only know that it's some sort of orb weaver. Spiny orbweaver, from the pix I find when googling.

A spider and its former meal on the left.

Is there supposed to be a photo?

No, I was quoting your picture.

I didn't even notice the little bug.

After a short time, my ladybug has emerged from its larval state. Soon it will fly off.

You might be able to it sell for enough to finance your furnace repair job.

I agree! I'll bet it's worth a few dollars. Have you ever checked on its value?

Ok, I went back and resized my verticals again. After clearing the browser cache, the pictures should now fit without scrolling.

Yep. :-)

Thank you!

Another seasonal find at Walmart. This is described as a candy jar. It's smaller than a cookie jar. Only about six inches (15cm) tall. They have a cookie jar version as well, but I already have a raccoon cookie jar from last year.

It's always a good idea to change your password from time to time. That being said, I seldom do.

I'm giving Freshly a try, only because I get a big discount on the first two weekly orders. Freshly is a service that creates the meal for you and sends it to you cooked but cold - not frozen - and vacuum sealed. You can heat them in the microwave. So far I like everything except for the fruit porridge with muffin. I took one bite of each and threw it out.

Here's a referral URL if you want to try it with the same discount: http://refer.freshly.com/s/Suzanne410

I tried one of those cook-it-yourself things* where they send you all the ingredients you need plus the recipe. I liked it but I got a little overwhelmed. I didn't cook the meals right away so I ended up keeping them in the fridge until I had to throw them out. Which is a big waste, of course.

*Home something

My elephant ear plant has produced a flower. I didn't even know they grew flowers! :-O (This is the first year I've grown them.)

Waterfox 56.2.3 I think does this resizing automatically, so far I have not had any picture getting big enough to make scrolling to the right work here.
And I don't have a 50" 4K monitor, more like a 21.5" 1920*1080 DP monitor.

I believe the message board software resizes any very large picture so it fits in the window horizontally. But vertically one still would have to scroll if the photo is as large as Gordon's.
