They're finally harvesting the corn across the road from Boney.

It's a pretty big harvest about 425 acres that was NOT planted until the first day of summer.

We didn't lose permafrost until three days before June 21.

Later folks, I'm going to Taco Bell to get some chicken tacos with cilantro, tomatoes and onions -- with jalapenos.

Yo, Y'all. Howzzit?

Surely is beautiful here at the moment, but supposed to get fairly chilly tonight, so I'm going to lug all my bonsai plants back into the house. Don't want to take a chance that the predicted 43 could plummet. Never again to I want to lose a beautiful plant because I was too lazy to bring it in or provide heat.

Dunno whether you know already or not, MadDog, but what WackerSchnoodle meant was that I was born and raised (Yes, RAISED --- not "reared"!) in Alabama and became a Texas resident (I can never be a "real Texan" because I wasn't born here.) in 1967, so I've now lived longer in Texas than I ever lived in Alabama. As to "Yankees," however, there are literally thousands of them down in the Rio Grande Valley during the winter months. We call them "Snow Birds." Thankfully, most of them leave as soon as The Great Frozen North begins to thaw.

The MAIN trouble now is all those KolleyFORNyahns streaming into Texas to escape what used to be "Paradise West." See, now that they've snotted at the rest of us and lived 'WAY beyond their means --- AND invited millions and MILLIONS of "Undocumented Democrat Voters" to just "rush right in, Amigos!," they want OUT of that mess...and LOTS of 'em are coming to Texas because of some of the things they've always SNIFFED at --- including LOW property taxes and NO STATE INCOME TAX.

Now as soon as we get enough of them here, guess what they're gonna want to do!

KOLLEYFORNYAHNS GO HOME!

(Gonna get me a megaphone and demonstrate in the streets)

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Good morning!

Sid, the SO is better at computers than I am, and has used more different types than I do. But they are only tools for him, and when he's at work he calls the IT people whenever he has a problem.

Oops, I got busy and didn't finish this before noon.

And it's sunny out there. Yay!

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Saturday! 44 degrees this morning and has been raining.

Yesterday was a productive day even though I had to occasionally engage the office for end of year actions and my medical appointment(s) took a good bit of time. The first appointment went well but he ordered a comprehensive x-ray workup so I had to travel to another location and await the results to be published to a CD and return it to the first doctor. I should find out something next week. In spite of this
"squashing the morning", my wife completed all but a few small items for our Christmas shopping (since I was a week behind due to my international travel). :)

Today will be a pretty light day until later this afternoon when I will sub for the Women's basketball team PA Announcer. This is the second day of their Holiday tournament. I have my regularly scheduled men's basketball game tomorrow at 2:00p directly preceded by dinner and our annual Christmas celebration hosted by our daughter at her place in Atlanta.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Hi guys,

I will have to study the sound problem more - the page does open, and the little arrow for play does show up, but when I click on it the time counter never even starts. It looks like the same type of programme as wikipedia uses for sound clips, and that has always worked for me.

I will try it on another computer, and I hope another browser, and see if something else will work.

Ah, well, for the benefit of the ignorant and/or uneducated, Texas was just as "Reb" as any other state was --- and still proud of it, for that matter.

ANYway, none of that crap should ever have happened, so let's be done with it.

While we're at it, though, none of the crap that has happened since WWII should have happened, in my firm opinion....but Idowanna argue that, either.

Right now, since I woke up alive AGAIN, I'm happy enough.

...and I got COFFEEEEEE........I just miss my Joe the Limo Man....sure wish that big ol' good-lookin' German gal of his would give him a day off!

Baylee - pardon the "level 1 help desk approach" but I have to ask the basic questions....

When the page loads is there a "play" button indicator on the straight line? The "play" button looks something like a colored in (gray) greater than sign - > - and is located on the far left of play (progress) line?

Since the page won't automatically play, you will need press the play button so it will play. Additionally, to the far right, there should be an elapsed time (starts with 00:00) followed by 00:42. Looks like this:

00:00 / 00:42

If these items are present, it may be that you need to have Windows Media Player or RealPlayer installed and the webpage on which the fanfare is stored, will "call the program" and play it. If this doesn't work, I'll see what other options are available...

Last, if the (play) progress line moves, it is playing, the sound will need to be adjusted. If the progress doesn't move, then it's definitely something technical....

What does that have to do with geezer? I don't live in Detroit and either does he.

It sounds like if you want sex in the shower -- you should buy my house in Northwest Detroit.

You could probably get a permit from the Michigan DNR for High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF).

lol and so on

Governor Cuomo put a band ON the practice in the state of New York all because of geezer and his Ann Arbor, Michigan hippie friends.

Well, Little C is cuter'n a bug, and I sympathize with her because of the trouble with standing on that HIGH ladder AND the "topping" that finally just slipped all the way down. (What the heck WAS that?) I'm sure that embarrassed her, also....NOT a good thing in addition to the fear of being on the ladder.

BayleeBug, I'm sure you don't use Windows, so my suggestions probably won't apply anyway, but you might check online for a sound package that might solve the problem. I'd suggest trying RealPlayer first. I think they cover most of the OS bases as well as all of the sound file types.

PsyCoBoneHead, here is a late news flash that I'm sure you'll find interesting:
****************************************************************************
According to a recent survey conducted for a leading toiletries firm (Brut), people from the cities of Detroit and Chicago are the most likely to have had sex in the shower! In the survey, 86% of Detroit's and Chicago's inner city residents said that they have enjoyed sex in the shower.

The other 14% said they hadn't been to prison yet.
****************************************************************************

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

...oh, Baylee...one more thing: IF there is a right arrow on the left end of the "play line," click on that. TOO simple, I know...

FOF, I never did see the Angel, but the angle of the camera must have been bad, because the whole thing looked as if it took place "Downstairs" rather than "Up" --- if y'know whattamean --- so I would have only expected to see a "Former Angel" "down there," anyway.

I couldn't believe it! OMG I thought, something is definitely wrong. I put 11.002 gallons of regular into my KIS Soul Plus and it was less than $30.00. The price at COSTCO was $2.399....lowest I've seen since I retired in 2003. I'd heard of gas prices going below $2.00 but hadn't believed it. Now, maybe, if things keep going right, one day the prices here will be that low.

Got Barnes and Noble to fix my NOOK, so now I can read while reposing on the throne early in the morning before walking the dog--it's getting cold out there now. Even the dog wants to hurry up and come back in

I'll second BayleeBuggy's request, grmoore. Don't think you can just attach a sound file here, though. You may have to put it up somewhere...maybe Photobucket (Dunno if they just host sound files, but they do host videos, so maybe.)
