Weekend Weather

Posted by Angoid in Angoid's Blog, 11 June 2015 · 1,059 views
weather, weekend

Is it just my imagination, or is the weather really so much worse at the weekends than during the week?

 

Take this week for example: Currently about 20C, bright blue sky, gentle breeze. Tomorrow (Friday) pretty much the same.

 

Saturday?
13C, rain. I've known better in February.

 

Sunday?
11C, rain. I've known it to be warmer than that in January.

 

It's pretty much every weekend: cold, wet or windy (or any combination thereof). Anything but warm, sunny and pleasant.

 

I don't think I'm imagining it - it's the same every weekend.

A new day...A new year dawns....

Posted by dashwood95 in dashwood95's Blog, 01 January 2015 · 1,464 views

2014 has been a year of many ups and downs. I accepted a permanent job a few days before the new year and thought 2014 would be bright. In many ways it was. Work is hard, and though I don't feel I've found home I do know I am making a difference. I work hard, and sometimes it actually shows. Heck, a few people have actually noticed!

On a personal note, May saw a big decision that we thought had come to fruition in October only to be cut down in heartbreak by the end of the month. We'll come back from it, but it is taking time.

Here's to hoping 2015 brings more joy and happiness, less stress, more money (I know..haha!) and closer ties with friends and family. efabes and I wish you all a very Happy 2015!

Great Sand Dunes

Posted by Mark in Mark's Blog, 07 April 2014 · 1,996 views

I took a road trip to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. Didn't have as much time as I would have liked, but I managed to get some good shots. The weather wasn't great, lots of wind that made it feel very cold at times.

I'll add a few more photos here and there when I get time.

The doctors are FURTHER amazed!

Posted by Phzzz in Phzzz's Blog, 06 October 2013 · 1,517 views

The doctors are FURTHER amazed! Many of you know that one of my pseudonyms is "Scruffy". But if you didn't before, you do now! Back on June 5th, I blogged about how the doctors at the VA were amazed at the results of my cat scan at that time. Cerebrospinal fluid normally provides cushion and buoyancy to the brain, which occupies most of the skull. The cat scan revealed that I only have the medulla oblongata and that the rest of my brain mass is missing, and that the majority of my skull is filled with cerebrospinal fluid instead of brain matter. But now the doctors are FURTHER amazed! They recently saw a MISSING poster indicating where my brain was last seen, back in 1956, AND... the NYPD Missing Persons Squad is still taking phone calls!

Android is the bane of cell phones

Posted by Interceptor in Just Thinking, 10 July 2013 · 954 views

Let's see....the NSA helped write the source code for Google's Android. During a time when the digital spying cat has been let out of the bag, we now find out that the most insidious agency for informational spying has had a major role in designing the code most of our cell phones use? Good. Not that there could possibly ever be anything which could go wrong there.

Android phones are also the carrier for 92% of the mobile malware/spyware in circulation. Basically, that means 136 out of 149 known threats. Even better.

Every time they do an update it has a tencdency to screw other functions and apps on the phone up. Currently I have a Samsung Galaxy S2, S3 and the new S4.

So why am I using Android?

Because the iPhone blows. It's a chunk of junk, plain and simple. I know a couple of support techs for Apple and they say they're junk, too. I've never liked anything Apple has ever made.

Maybe I'll switch to one of the new Windows phones. A friend of mine just purchased one and it's beautiful. And fast.

Blogging

Posted by Marcia in Marcia's Blog, 17 April 2013 · 816 views

What is blogging? That is a good question. :D I have never blogged before, so here is an attempt. I understand you just kind of prattle on, and I know how to do that. ;)
Going to be starting a garden soon, so maybe I'll talk about doing that and then, of course, reaping the benefits of the toil put in. As well as talking about what has been canned or processed in some way.
We will be making jerky soon. First time I have ever done that so it should be an interesting experience. :yes:
