Good morning Claudie!

The ISS is fun to see orbit by. Great to have your lawn mowed today. Get to do mine the last week of May.

Lost power at 5:02 PM yesterday. The wind swayed the trees amazingly being 34 mph (54 km/h). Stayed up for an hour,. which seemed like three, then went to slept. The utility co left a message at 7:15 saying the power has been restored. Woke at 12:30 this morning.

It was a Happy Patriots' Day to our New England and Wisconsin friends who celebrated the opening salvo of The American Revolution which began on April 19, 1775 with the Battles of Lexington and Concord, MA. It is celebrated on the third Monday of April.

The 119th Boston Marathon went w/o a hitch. Rebekah Gregory lost a leg in the 2013 marathon bombings. She ran the race in a prosthetic. Her brave story.

Lelisa Desisa, of Ethiopia, crossed the finish line to win the Boston Marathon in 2 hours 9 minutes and 17 seconds. His 2nd win. The marathon begins in Hopkinton MA w/the finish line near Copley Sq Boston, 26.2 miles later.

2. Yemane Adhane Tsegay 2:09:48
3. Wilson Chebet 2:10:22
4. Bernard Kipyego 2:10:47

Kenya's Caroline Rotich captured the women’s crown in 2:24:55. It was hotly contested w/ the runner ups just seconds behind.
2. Mare Dibaba 2:24:59
3. Buzunesh Deba 2:25:09
4. Desiree Linden 2:25:39

Security was noticeably tight. A uniformed police officer stood every 200' in their lime yellow rain jackets.

There is of course many police officers under cover. The only incidents were rain, wind, and chill. Over 20,000 participated w/ well over 1,000,000 spectators lining the route.

Millions watched on live TV. Here are the marathon stats by the numbers (i.e, Prize money: $830,500, 28,200 bananas, gallons of water needed, fruit cups eaten, and etc.)

The only MLB ballgame on Patriots' Day at 11:05 in the morning saw the Orioles fall 7-1. Much of it was caused by their own doing. Fenway Park opened on April 20th 1912. It is their 103rd Anniversary and remains the oldest park in MLB.

After a rainy Patriots' Day with the Boston Marathon and home team Red Sox ball game, it is now official w/the return of the geese and ducks: Spring has arrived.

Made my version of Pasta Mona Lisa. Boiled farfalle, onions, sausage, bacon squares, carrots, broccoli, cubed red peppers, and large black olives cut in half.

Drain the sausage and let a few paper towels absorb any grease. Then top this treasure masterpiece w/ briefly cooked dices garlic in evoo and 5 Italian cheeses melted on top. Fresh loves added onto the cheese melting makes this a masterpiece.

After a rainy and most windy Patriots' Day with the Boston Marathon and home team Red Sox ball game, it is now official, w/the return of the geese and ducks: Spring has arrived.

In the northern East Coast the ISS orbits by 8:16 PM tonight. One can see the ISS w/the naked eye (even w/city lights at night). It is the brighest object in the night sky. Only the Moon is brighter. Seeall the satellites in your area.

The temp is 44° (7°C) with the high to be 54° (12°C). Rain sees a 70 - to 90% chance all week.

Civil twilight is 5:21 AM EST. Night is 8:09 PM.

Sunrise: 5:52 AM. Set: 7:38 PM.

Length of day: 13h 45m. Length of visible light: 14h 47m. Tomorrow will be 2m 52s longer.

Have a wonderful day!

Well! It looks like we're going to be getting our yard taken care of tomorrow! The yard guy is trying to play catch-up from last week; wanted to know if tomorrow would be alright to come, and I said, sure; I'd be leaving about 9:10 to take Mom to WM, but hubby would be home. He DID offer to come next Monday instead, but I told him that the grass was getting pretty tall now, and by Monday it would be REALLY tall! So tomorrow morning it is!

Hiya, sandipaws!

That's the way our rain was some of the times last week...scattered showers sometimes, and just heavy clouds the rest of the time. Today? Sunshine and wind; GREAT for drying things out! Just in time for more rain later in the week?

Well, it's time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Hello Claudie,
Glad to hear that your morning went well for you and that the rain has stopped for you. Not too much rain here today -- it was very scattered. Saw lots of dark clouds here and there on the way home, but so far not much rain.
Hope you have a lovely evening! {{Hugs}}

Good afternoon, kathybye and Robustus!

kathybye, today's plans sound pretty good; relaxing sounds even better! A training session tomorrow? Hope that time passes by quickly!

Robustus, even though it hasn't rained at drop here today, apparently we are under a tornado watch until 8 PM. It IS quite windy (helps to dry things out). :( Hope the thunderstorms heading your way aren't too bad. At least you're not working when they happen (this time)!

Good afternoon Claudie,

Looks like the thunderstorms are on their way here. My weather radio just alerted me for a T-storm warning in NW Guilford County and Eastern Forsyth which is to the west of me. I live on the east central border of Guilford which Alamance is to the east. But I have the radio to set to go off for both Guilford and Alamance County. I am also watching the NWS radar. Unfortunately, this radar won't let you zoom in to street level like the other places do. But, I look at it to see if anything is coming this way.

Anyway, nice to lay around and enjoy my day off. Surprisingly my dad hasn't pestered me except for a call at 6:30 this morning. Luckily, I was in a deep sleep to hear the phone. Of course, I have his number listed on my reject list. So, all his calls go straight to voicemail. However, you can see rejected call flash on the screen when he or any rejected number comes on. That is the closest thing I have to blocking numbers on my cell phone. However, around 9:30, I got one of those dumb scam calls. My caller ID shows the number and location, but not the name so it was from Texas and I don't know anyone there! I get calls like this at least once a week! It's annoying, I put in a complaint at the FCC's webpage where I am registered on the Do Not Call List, but it doesn't stop those creeps! I heard there's a smartphone app out there allows you to factiously put in a number to show up on caller ID. Even a co-worker told me there is one you can do for prank calls to joke on friends, but I don't know if you can change the number. Anyway, I sometimes Google the number afterwards which I never pick up an unknown number. Then sometimes the search results come up with message board sites of people complaining about the same thing. Some say they are scammers who want your credit card and personal info. One person that sometimes they simply hang up after start talking. But most of them get rude and nasty when you ask why they are calling. Like I said, I just ignore it, but it's a pest. When I used to pay for a minute plan for my cell phone service, it got annoying if I answered since you're paying for that airtime! Again, I usually never answer a call I don't recognize the number. Even when my mom was around and borrowed nurses phones, I hoped that she or the nurse left a message. Usually if it was important they did. Then I can call them back.

Well, I guess I'm going to get up and find something to eat. I've got plenty of stuff to fix, just trying to figure what.

Enjoy your "porch time" if you get it.

Going for late SB breakfast sandwich, car wash, allergy shot. Home for a bit, and then maybe a little grocery shopping, OR relaxing!

Tomorrow if my final training for continuing ed hours, but gone from about 10:45-4:15, and then meeting a friend for early dinner.

Glad your morning went well!

A really good time out this morning for both me and hubby!

I was able to get several errands done before I went to the dentist. In fact I got there about 20 minutes early, but the hygienist took me in anyway. :) A clean bill of health from the dentist; go back in 6 months.

Hubby's visit turned out the same. :)

The sun has been in and out all morning, but, thank goodness, NO RAIN! Whoo hoo!

Hello, Bus Jockey, Farful, attitash, Scanman, hmcsretired07, and dickc49!

Bus Jockey, our temp's about the same as yours is; wish these clouds would go away and it just be sun, though...but then it might get REALLY warm then! <shakes head> Can't win!

Farful, neither hubby nor I had long wait times at all! :) Glad you got some rain, though, you could always use more. Here? Nope! Don't need any more for the time being!

attitash, aaawww, sorry that you still feel bad. Hope you're better tomorrow.

Scanman, okay then! Get that cancelled appointment rescheduled!

hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

dick, so did the marathon runners get wet as they ran this morning? I see that the baseball game is being played; right now the Red Sox are winning 5-1 in the bottom of the 5th. As far as the genealogy goes...I wish I really had the time right now to get back into in; it's been a while for me. I would like to see what, if any, new info is now out there. Maybe one day soon.

Good morning Claudie,

Sitting with my friend the heating pad this morning. As we have weather moving in, it does feel good. Coolish outside with 1-2 inches of rain due in shortly. The runners in Boston will get wet if they do not finish soon, and will have a stiff headwind.

Got a response from a request I made on Ancestry's message boards 29 months ago on Sunday. I have found a long lost second cousin. Our families lost touch in the early 70's. I found on line of this family three years ago, but neither they nor I knew where the others were. Dad had two first cousins, but they were not close as their mothers were sisters who had some kind of a severe feud between them and did not talk. No one knows what the feud was now which is probably just as well! :>) I found that I have another 2nd cousin now living in Australia! Pretty neat the William answered back. He never knew his grand mother had this sister as she never mentioned her (part of the feud I'm sure). I will be getting further in touch with him over the next few days and weeks and seeing if I can get email addresses of his brothers and sister. Boy is the Internet something!

Hiya, TUrtLE and sandipaws!

TUrtLE, I DID read your water facts. :) I remember when we were in some drought years and everywhere else was having rain. Now it's the other way around.

sandipaws, hop[e you don't get as much rain as we did (over the last 8 days, and even yesterday, for that matter)!

Good morning, Silverhand, kathybye, Robustus, yankie, MidnightSun, jqwright, JM, org, senile, scout, TUrtLE, grmoore, and munchkins_mom!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes left here for me yesterday! :)

Silverhand, thanks for Sunday's 'toons! :)

kathybye, you sing so nicely! :) I'm glad I started this place, too, for I have also made many new friends, you included. :)

Robustus, what you describe with the rain is pretty much what we've been having for the past week. From the looks of things out my window, we may be done with the rain for a few days. Enough so that we might be able to do some drying out...finally!

MidnightSun, wow! You got lots of good time working outside yesterday! Got a lot done, I see. As for seeing the ISS, maybe now that the clouds/rain has moved out for a while. :)

JM, good game for the Hawks last night, though, closer than I would have thought/hoped. Here ya go...Game 2 - Wed, Apr 22 vs Nets, 7:00 PM EDT

org, such an appropriate fact today! Thanks for sharing!

scout, hope you have a great work day!

TUrtLE, water? Talking about water? After all the rain we've had the last 8 days, I might want to skip those. <shrugs shoulders> Oh, well, I check them out! Thanks for sharing! :)

grmoore, it's looking like it's going to be a nice day today, doesn't it? Hope you can get your yard mowed; for us, not today, since it's probably still going to be too wet.

munchkins_mom, no storm damage here from yesterday's storms. All we got was heavy, heavy rain for about an hour or 2. I had a good birthday yesterday, thanks, though, we didn't do anything really special. I heard from lots of people, though. :)

yankie, jqwright, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

It's a morning for appointments for hubby and me today....he has a 'regular' doctor visit mid-morning and I have a 6-month dentist checkup. The times pretty much coincide, so obviously I'm not going with him. I might leave a little early and try to stop at a coupla places before I go, though. This afternoon? Porch-time maybe? :)

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Monday! 66 degrees and wet this morning, but no rain so far! I got in my 1+ mile walk this morning and it was quite pleasant.

Happy Birthday, Claudie!

I am hoping the rain will stay away for today, although there's a forecasted 40% chance, so I can consider mowing tonight after work.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good Morning Claudie,

It's time to talk about water.
Why? National Earth Day is Wednesday, and in addition the west coast, especially California, is experiencing some severe drought conditions that will impact the cost of food.

Water facts this week are from ecotechwater.com.

How much of the earth's water is suitable for drinking?
1%

How much does an individual use daily?
123 gallons (National)

How much water must a person consume per day to maintain health?
2 1/2 quarts from all sources, i.e. water, food, etc.

How much water is used in the average ten-minute shower?
20-50 gallons.

Happy Monday!

On this date, 1912, the Boston Red Sox played their first game at Fenway Park. They beat the N.Y. Highlanders (who in 1913 would become known as the Yankees) 7-6.

Good morning Claudie!

You are so welcome for the oatmeal cookies. See you had a fantastic Happy Birthday. Left you a sundae at The Inn last night. Makes a good dessert after brekky. ; )

Yesterday saw a very nippy morning w/the temp dropping to 35° (2°C). There was solid overcast or there would have been another below freezing start to the day.

Saw the exciting results of the Ultimate Fighting Champoinship #185 on Saturday evening. Several upsets were seen. Luke Rockhold picks up a signature career win against veteran Lyoto Machida by submission in 2nd round.

In the women's bouts, Paige VanZant (kickboxing 0, MMA 6-5-1), just 21 y/o, a huge underdog, faced veteran Felice Herrig 30 y/o (kickboxing 28-23-5, MMA 16-10-6) in the co-main event.

VanZant drilled out an impressive three-round unanimous decision win that will likely prompt a jump up the straw weight (max 52.2 kg/115 lbs) rankings ladder.

"I'm the underdog and I'm supposed to lose," VanZant said. "Winning makes me feel so much better." Scores were 30-27 and 30-26 twice. Am a huge fan of the women's MMA UFC events.

Left at 8 AM to go to Tractor Supply Co in Littleton. Did not find a deal on seeds or bags of gardening material. Did find a super deal on 6' 1" real bamboo stakes.

They list for $2.99 ea. They were on sale for only 49¢ each. Plan to use them for pole beans next month. Or to prop up my Crocosmia Lucifer. Heavy rains always topple them.

Asked about Miracle Grow topsoil that was seen on Lowe's internet sale pages. The dept mgr looked online and saw bags of the 1 cu ft, reg $4.97 on sale for 5/$10. Bought 5 40 lb bags. What a super deal.

Visited WM to buy two 40 pound bags of Humus & Manure for $2 each. (Was $1.62 last year. A 30% increase) Returned home smiling w/the fabulous deals purchased. Pulled last year dead growth from the gardens, half wine barrel, and window flower boxes.

Had to pump up the wheelbarrow front tire. The portable air pump in the Dodge Dart trunk continues to be most handy. Burned the dead grass around the yard (legal here), turned over half the compost pile, then hand tilled some soil on the garden. Want to plant garlic soon.

Quickly 4 hours went by. Temp made it to 58 in full sun. Much of the snow has melted due to rain. More rain is expected all week. Tried to pull out my 24' ladder out of the ladder racks on the side of the house.

The winter of blowing snow to skirt the house saw my 24' and 32' ft ladders still frozen in snow and ice. Did not want to chance hurting may back. Wanted to repair the varmint's hole into the attic. Will have to delay that further.

Came in exhausted, back was sore from using all my muscles. Had ribs and veggies for lunch, then relaxed to listen to the ball game as this was typed. So happy spring is here and 6 months of baseball.

In the northern Mid North America the ISS orbits by 8:08 PM. One can see the ISS w/the naked eye (even w/city lights at night). Seeall the satellites in your area.

The temp is 29° (2°C) with the high to be 44° (15°C). Rain sees a 70 - to 90% chance all week.

Civil twilight is 5:23 AM EST. Night is 8:07 PM.

Sunrise: 5:54 AM. Set: 7:36 PM.

Length of day: 13h 42m. Length of visible light: 14h 44m. Tomorrow will be 2m 53s longer.

Have a pleasant day!

Happy birthday Claudie!!!!

Wow we got your rain here!

It started pouring steady for almost a hour after I went into work at 4 this afternoon. Then it let up enough to go outside and gather up the soggy carts out of the parking lot. Then, it started up once again. The same thing over and over. The rain lets up and then it pours again. Funny how you know it's pouring out is when you can hear it hitting the roof inside the store! Supposed to have thunderstorms tomorrow, but thank goodness it's my day off work.

So that's pretty much it for today! I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

That Florida weather you experienced sounds normal. Uncomfortable, isn't it? Hope you're feeling better by tomorrow.

Just one last mention...thanks for all the birthday wishes left here for me today! It made the day even better! :)

Most days 88°F & humid....just bad luck. I struggled through it. Tough flight home. Have a good night!

Hello, m6gm, attitash, rpoppe, grmoore, KHF, Peeka and dickc49!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, y'all! They sure have made this day extra-special! :)

m6gm, young lady! LOL! Thanks for taking the time to come south!

attitash, aaawww, so sorry to hear you got sick while y'all were in FL. Was it a result of the weather? Hope it didn't mess up your vacation.

rpoppe, good to see you here! It's been a while! As we say in the South, don't be a stranger!

grmoore, was just watching the news/weather, and there are more storms coming into GA, but it looks like (I hope) they're going to be more north of us. <crosses fingers> No more rain!

KHF and Peeka, thanks for taking the time to come visit!

dick, sounds like a nice party. Hope your back feels better tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Claudie,

My back was a little sore this morning, but a whole afternoon spent below has me back on the heating pad tonight! I am the family photographer too.

We had our one year old grand sons birthday party today. It was at the yacht club his other grand father is a commodore at. My daughter hired "curious creatures" to come for the entertainment. The guy brought a flying squirrel, a chinchilla, a skunk, a few snakes, a small alligator, a scorpion and a few other things. Pretty neat stuff. Many of the animals are rescue animals. I don't know who had a better time, the kids or the adults!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Sunday! It's been a cool and rainy day. Glad the rain has finally stopped!

It's been a busy day; I was up late last night filing my Health Care Savings Account expenses so I posted on most areas but didn't get into here.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Finally was able to check the rain gauge after the rain slowed down (still sprinkling here right now, though)...and there's about 2¾ inches in it! Holy cow! That brings the week's total to about 6 inches of rain right here at my house!

Boy! It's going to take several days for the ground to dry out!

Getting ready in a coupla hours to watch the Atlanta Hawks (pro basketball team) play the Brooklyn Nets in their first playoff game. The Hawks are the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. :)

Go, Hawks!

Oh. My. Gosh! Did it ever just rain! The standing water all over the yard is unreal! Besides that, the pond next door is SO full that the water is rushing out of the run-off place! It sounds like a waterfall or something! My goodness! If the rain ever slows down or stops, I'll go check the rain gauge; I bet we easily got a coupla inches in that downpour....and it was only for about an hour or so! Whoooeee!

Hello, doc, Lighting10K, fliper, LogicMan, Farful, GryphonJax, sandipaws, Mrs. Wrench, and Babe4!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! :)

Lighting, yes! We certainly DO need a break from all this rain, esp. after what we just got here (south of the city)! Go, Hawks!

fliper, no outdoor activities for today, that's for sure! Hoping to start drying out maybe tomorrow, but definitely Tuesday, 'they' say. Hope so!

LogicMan, aaawww, such a nice birthday message. :)

Farful, would LOVE to share today's rain...with ANYBUDDY! Tomato plants? Hmmm, hubby hasn't even mentioned them yet.

GJ, nope, no grandkids visiting today. Oh, well!

Babe, welcome to Claudie's Place! Come back again and visit again when you can!

doc, sandipaws, and Mrs. Wrench, thanks for stopping in!

Good morning Claudie and All!
 
Claudie, Happy Birthday! Enjoy your day. You may share your rain with me.
 
Missed out on the rain yesterday at my place. Hope to have some rain today. Need the rain for the lawn treatment I put down yesterday. Used to Troy tiller to till garden Friday. Have some tomato and cucumber plants to plant. Next week could be having low temps again. Hope to get plants in by Mother's Day.
 
Happy Sunday!

Happy Birthday Claudie! Many Happy Returns!
Hope your get better weather soon for your outdoor activities. We've got a below-normal week coming up with some rain, but we've had some great weather up to now so shouldn't complain. Have a good birthday! :)
