And good morning again!

M6, I forgot to explain this before -- as someone else explained to me. Look at the dark blue bar near the top of the page with Home at the far left. The 3rd one is Points & Prizes, and under that is a whole lower line -- on the far right of that it will say Video Points. If you open that it's a new page with a way to "watch" 5 videos in succession for 200 points each. This is to appease us non-mobile phone types.

When the videos ( = ADS) are on, I turn off the sound, open up another window for a solitare game, and scoot the video page almost off the screen, leaving just enough to see when the little green box lights up again, 5 times. Isn't that silly?

Same to you Baylee...LOL

Yesterday l attended a veggie clinic and it was old hat mostly, but did learn a few things. Got a free hand clipper for going, and some pellet food, which l was nearly out of and which l use on my indoor plants. I broke down and bought 2 plants ea of yellow crooked neck squash and 2 of zucchini. I planted them together without disturbing their roots as l normally would do, that is one thing they said ..squash does not like it's roots disturbed. Didn't know that.

Today l am going to a much more convenient time for me, Farmers MKT at 10 am. The usual friday night farmers mkt is 4:30 pm..l am eating dinner by then and getting ready to unwind from day, not go out and do errands.

Goof morning!

Claudie, we had a ton of extra rain all last year, with our tiny river running far higher than usual even when it usually slowed to a trickle in the fall. But this year we are already getting too dry - go figure!

M6, that's a lot of extra $ $ $. Will you be able to get it all done, or just part for the time being?

The contractor started this morning, but at 8 rather than 6. When he tore off the soffit, he found some wood rot. A LOT of wood rot. To do what he has to do to fix it, before he can actually build the patio, is going to cost me another $1500.

I didn't know anything about videos. Guess it's something I need to check.

We too are expecting showers later in the next week tho, and we welcome them and probably won't be much....just enough to cancel my planned birthday potluck on Friday. Hope not as it is by word of mouth coming along well and l haven't even made one phone call. People are interested for the most part. Only 2 said "well maybe l don't know yet" but they will be there.
If they are, this will be the largest get together ever. 22 people.

My housekeeper is spending 3 to 4 hours a day here. I am going to have to get her a key, as l won't want to be here everyday for that.

She has done that for clients here before. Only when they say "come ahead l will be gone".

Still sorting and re arranging things, but l think l am getting things where l want them now. Yesterday l took 2 of my foam pads off the bed and got the rest of them zippered up and then put thos back on and turned the entire bed around as it has seems to sag on one side. Makes my back work to hold me up while asleep. Wake with it hurting. Last night was fine. Didn't let housekeeper do it as l had to decide how and which etc.

Fearless joined me on the bench yesterday and her dog picked up so much of the chipped wood and such in her fur that she had to be brushed all over. The dog's hair is poodle like curly. Hold every leaf and litter she lies on. Poor Bella, but good she got brushed that way.

Hey, keep those showers down your way! It's been sunny and mostly in the 60's for a week, but now the weatherguessers say it going to be in the low 50's all next week and raining most of the time.

Morning Claudie, M6, BB, geez and Tru

Claudie I feel the same as you about the rain...I want to see the sun!!! I probably caught up to your rain total yesterday and it's still raining!! My friend and I wanted to take the horses to the Camden poker run tomorrow. I'll know today whether they will cancel or not but it's pretty likely they will unless the forecast changes suddenly. So disappointed :-(

As to the points, I usually post mobile so I did check out the vids while eating lunch (with the sound off of course). For me, most are gaming apps for the iphone. Also I accidentally did some of the challenges without even knowing!! This weekend we get double points for all gas prices posted mobile or not!

My biggest complaint is I have no idea how many points a day we can get anymore. It's really bothering a lot of the long term members but I decided a long time ago that GB is just not that important to me to raise my blood pressure!! Obviously I'm having trouble posting here as that's almost undoable on the phone.

And in my case it's fluctuating hugely. I'm moved up a couple of places but also fell back early on. So for me who knows?

BB your weather has been warmer than mine the last couple of days and geez I turned off the faucet for your visit, could you please talk to the weather gods for me and give me some sun?!?!

Good morning, jan,

Waaah!

It's still raining/drizzling (this is unreal!), and supposed to be that way for the next coupla days (I would imagine that's the same for you, too). While we certainly DO need the rain, I think we need to see the sun even more right now (here at my house, we've gotten about 3½ inches totally just this week)!

Thank goodness the pollen count is waaaaaaaay down at 26 (it was something like 52 yesterday)!

m6gm, since last week, I lost almost 10 spots in the rankings. I decided to 'watch' the videos the other day, and since then, I have been in the same spot. These new changes are for the birds!

Baylee, I don't watch the videos either; while they're playing, I play a Tetris game until the button turns green, and then I do the same as you.

Jake and Emma were supposed to have had soccer games this morning at 10, but they were cancelled b/c of the weather; I would imagine the fields are really, really wet. So that means I have no reason to go out today. :)

Have a great day!

Good evening!

M6, I feel like I'm going in circles. Some members have passed me by, climbing past me by weeks' worth of postings, but I have also finally passed others on the TO page that were in front of me literally for years. Doesn't seem fair at all, does it? I did find out about the silly new way to get video points, and I must admit I started doing it. BUT I mute the sound and only follow enough of the video to see the little spot in the corner turn green, showing points being added.

Why in the world should the site be changed so I get bonus points for not seeing or hearing videos about inflammatory bowel disease or heart conditions? Some of them may relate to this site, but none that I've wasted my time with so far.

I'll wear the bikini UNDER my muumuu. Dumb of me to not think that pool is game of pool. But with the warm weather here for weeks, we do go swimming and that was what crossed my mind. The restaurant is in a strange place and they are not full restaurant but cater and have small service so l was confused as to just who they are.

I used to fill a page in my journal and now l just have 4 to 6 lines of a binder. Read mostly. Guess l could describe what l read? NAH you don't want to hear gruesome details.

Slept well last night coz took Advil. Good to sleep a solid 5 hours in a row.

Good morning, jan,

It continues to rain here, but not straight through; there are long periods of no rain and then it rains for a coupla hours. That was the way it was yesterday (during the daytime hours)...cloudy and dreary all day, and then it started to rain about 9. I checked the rain gauge just now and there's another ½ in it! Just here alone (at my house) we've gotten a little over 3" total for the whole week. This weather pattern is supposed to continue through the weekend, too. Sheesh!

Obviously we still haven't been able to get the yard mowed (from Monday), and I am not sure WHEN it WILL get done! It looks sooooo green and is growing soooo good!

I'll be staying home today. :)

Have a great day!

Good evening! M6, I think I'm getting the idea - the fan is for ventilation rather than circulating?

Geez, I don't think we were quite that warm, but I've decided that it is finally spring for sure. Now is the best time of this season, before the bugs arrive.

Evening M6, Tru, BB, Claudie and GEez

Geez the weather joke for today is you got warmer than I did! 48 this morning. No one said anything about 40s!! And of course raining. An inch yesterday. An inch today. Emptied gauge earlier and it's still coming down!

M6 I still can't visualize that type of fan but I'll believe you!

Tru it wasn't me that mentioned Sally Tomatoes but sounds like fun. Don't believe we have them here.

Hope to see the sun tomorrow....

I'll try to explain myself better. Indoor ceiling fans vent heat from the bottom and top of the unit. Outdoor fans, at least the ones I bought, only vent from the bottom so that when it rains the motor stays dry. The contractor came by this afternoon and I gave him checks for materials and half his labor charge. Also had him sign a contract to be on the safe side. If his work is half as good as his attitude, we'll be well satisfied.

Evening BB, Tru, M6, geez, daddy and Claudie

Claudie I know you got rain! I never did get your showers yesterday but today? Man oh man. Rain rain and more rain. Good day to get plants in the ground in patio garden though :-)

BB I've had that happen a time or two. I always think I can do something...maybe not quite the way I planned lol

Case in point...bought refrigerant to recharge a/c in suburban. I know it leaks. Have had to do it last several years but of course it wasn't me that did it. Decided this year would be different! Ran into a few hiccups of course. Like the sales people asking me if I knew I was out of freon...or maybe compressor was shot. I swung by a place that checks them and he explained that compressor won't run without freon so off I went to see what I could do! Had to use a ladder. The suburban is tall and I'm not but I got it recharged after a few false starts <pats self on back>

Daddy hope things are going better for your brother. As you know it's no fun being in the hospital!

M6 I'm not sure what outdoor fans are either....

Good afternoon!

Tru, that reminds me of a time we were visiting a college out of town - long story - and stayed in a guest suite intended for visiting profs. Very interesting! There was an AC unit in the only window I could open, but it was Nov. so I didn't need to use it. So I tried to open the window itself, and the AC unit started to fall down, out the now-open window! The SO managed to grab it and we replaced things. I can't even remember if I was able to open it some other way or not.

We're off to see a film tonight, called The Salt of the Earth. Based on a man who takes amazing photos, but I hope there's more to it than that.

Yesterday was quiet day for me..tho l did take the a/c fan apart accidentally. To clean the filter, and the front came off, so l washed it too. Little dusting and then out to the patio and sat and get up and do little and sit and do a little more.

Sat on bench in front after moving it back to it's position away from any apt frnt, and you know who came and sat with me. She was fine today. Talks a lot,but was easily redirected away from herself. One lady passed by who has had her car stolen twice and was telling us about it's recovery and this lady interrupted to talk about her car and it's being unlocked etc. and l just pointed out that she interrupted and l for one would like to hear the entire recovery story. Turns out the person was arrested this time. Good. He it seems and others l am sure, troll senior complex parking lots as we sometimes forget to lock our cars. I know l did once at least in past 4 years. That's all it takes too.

Hope all people who aren't doing well are better now.

Good morning, jan,

Well, I'll be back out and about today after an unexpected stay-at-home day during the week, but not too much to do, though. Hubby and I will be going to the Senior Center for breakfast, and then that's when things change. Not going to the grocery store today (aaawww, no senior discount!); I'm going to the nail salon instead for some 'happy feet;' after that, since I am pretty much across the street from Mom's place, I'll go over to see her, taking the stuff I got at the store (for her) on Monday and also get her laundry. Then I'll probably just go on home. There's a VERY faint chance, though, that I might change my mind and go to the store after all, but I'll probably just wait until tomorrow. Don't want to do TOO much at one time!

Have a great day!

Afternoon jan, daddy, geez, BB, tru and Claudie. Took Trish to the hospital at 8:30 this morning for her procedures and she was supposed to be out by noon. I didn't get to pick her up till 2, then we had to run to Owensboro and take care of some things. The guy that's doing the patio called and wants to start Saturday morning, so one thing we had to do was buy a couple of outdoor ceiling fans and junction boxes. I'll have to buy the Romex over here since I don't know how much he'll need.

daddy, I hope they can stent him. He'll have a much shorter hospital stay.

Baylee that is so weird as l have no locomotive pictures in my albums anywhere.

I added one more pic to that album, not linking it coz you all have seen enough to last you for awhile of my little area eh? Anyway it is a before pic.

Yes daylilies Baylee are planted all around here, just not in our little block of plants. I recently added Alstomeria. Sp? It too is pretty bloom like the daylily and comes in various colors.

M6 l actually slid the bench around to get more into shade so the book wasn't in sun, and Yes we will be able to get it in the shade later on hot days. Then it will face my apt completely and right now they like it facing away from any apt. front. Tho l no longer live in the frontroom. Moved to bedroom with computer and tables and big recliner. I don't like it being so crowded but do like peace and quiet. Away from all the whiny little pesty neighbor. Just one but she is a dilly. Her immediate neighbor on one side is tearing her hair out with the constant pesty ness. The latest was a phone call to her when the power shut off for 30 seconds. The neighb0r has walking problems, was down on the floor brushing her assisting dog. Had to get up and go to phone to answere her dumb question about calling PG&E our power company. The rest of us just reset our clocks and ignore it. Such a nuisance.

Sunday night she called 911 again, because she was dizzy and SAID she fell several times tho none of us saw her falls. Anyway when l got dizzy l called my dr for an appt to be told same as she said ER told her after being there all night. Middle ear infection.

Daddy89, your brother is on the opposite end of my neighbor. He doesn't go to Er when he should, she goes all the time. Maybe someone will need that ambulance when she has them tied up calling because her furniture blocks her way to bathroom ...with heart problems they need to get to you quickly ..

Good morning, jan,

Whoooeee! Has it ever been raining hard over the last 10 hours or so (started about 9 last night); well, more like off-and-on hard rain. The last time I checked the rain gauge right before dark, there was 1.1 inches in it; I just checked again and now there's 2½ in it! Wow! Not sure how much it's supposed to rain today, though. At the moment, it's sprinkling.

daddy, wow! That's some serious stuff about your brother. Hope the surgery goes well for him.

Have a great day!

Hello folks and a good evening to all.
Well here is a kick in the ass. My brother's girlfriend called and told me the he was in the hospital facing a triple bypass if they can not get the stents in. If something happens to him that will mean I will be the last of my family.

I thought I had heart problems but not compare to my brother. The worst thing is that he was having all the warning signs for the last six months.

M6, the problem is almost certainly caused by ants. Carpenter ants are the most destructive, but even smaller ones can dig into wood and damage it. The don't eat the wood, just get it out of their way to make a nice place to live. The main problem is that I have no idea how to keep them away from all that wood in floors, walls, beams and roof.

tru, will you have any shade when you're at the bench?

jan, he got to 19 under, but couldn't hold on to that. I hope Phil can win another before he joins the Senior Tour.

BB, do you have termites? Those little buggers are hard to get rid of.

Good morning!

Tru, I was able to see your patio bench pix earlier, but the train photo was front and centre. Now your link just shows what you wanted us to see all along. And it does look like a great place to sit. Do day lilies grow well in your climate? There are lots of different colours, and around here there are lots of vaireties that bloom at different times, June through early October. If they are around there, it would look nice. And (except for wintertime) the plants themselves are bright green and healthy looking.

Jan, I agree about spring-cleaning mode. This year I will have a lot to do after I find an exterminator who's willing to come down the driveway that needs more gravel, then walk quite a distance from the parking space, hauling whatever equipment is needed, to work on our cute little building. My excuse for doing nothing down there till then is that I want the guy to see where the piles of sawdust are. Pretty good story, eh? But after that I'll have a ton of work to do.

Claudie, yes, that's cool - thanks for pointing it out!

Janrey l have all my veggies and fruit trees and lovely flowers in my enclosed patio just for my benefit too. But my view out front has been dire and recently another lady and l have been trying to improve it a bit. We worked out there in the early morning after l went looking for dirt and found some wood chips. I hauled them around to our front and she spread some and tied down the hoses. I do think it is near completion now. Latest picture is now album cover.

Try again Baylee. Hope it works this time for you as everyone else seems to get it ok.

After some work time in the morning l had a lovely quiet afternoon sitting on the new bench reading. It was peaceful and sunny and enjoyable, just as we had pictured in our minds.

Morning geez, Tru, M6, Claudie, wacki and BB

Tru you seem to work so much harder than the others making the place look nice but if it makes you happy then it's worth it! I plant all my patio flowers pretty much for just me but it's my thing! Whatever keeps you smiling :-)

BB I wish I just stayed in spring cleaning mode. Seems like there's always so much to do but I know it's because I'm doing pretty much the same things at the barn.

Geez you're having my idea of perfect weather! Same here yesterday but I didn't ride. I usually take Sundays off of the horse. Went to a birthday party at the other fancy barn, then my friend and I went to a late afternoon movie, The Woman in Gold. Really liked it!!

Back to the usual weekday stuff but with rain in the forecast everyday again. Let's see if they are as wrong about it as last week lol

Wacki it's always good to see you!

M6 I think this is the first year I didn't watch any of the masters! Probably because I was so busy or not around a tv but Speith set a record at winning by the highest margin I believe. That had to be fun to watch.

Wow, 68 today and I had to take off my sweatshirt while cleaning out the shed. It's supposed to be 72 or so today (Monday), which will be the first time since October 17 the we hit 70. Of course I called a golf emergency to celebrate.

Good afternoon! It finally feels a bit more like spring, so we are stuck with spring cleaning. My bestest friend is coming to visit in a couple of weeks, so that's a good excuse to get things done.

Tru, the train thing is because when I opened your link the big photo that shows at first is a picture of a locomotive. The bench pictures are all there, at the top and very small.

Time to go out and walk the pup.

Janrey and M6 l do not know what you mean by linking to a train? l tried the link l gave you and it took me to the album of the bench. What l wanted to show this time was the tiles and the removed grass clumps. Pic 4 and 5.

Thank you Geezer. We, the tenants are making the place look nicer. Also everything is cut back and green in the spring. When those grass clumps grow and turn brown , like in another album, then it is ugly. That is part of the reason l have paid to have them removed, tho not all of them, as many as we feel safe in removing. I am replacing the prairie grass with no blooms, with rosemary which stays green and blooms, and with Butterfly Gaurda which blooms and is pretty. Glad your friend is fully recovered.

I'm in trouble for more than using the s word. Don't read the following if you want to be positive and have a happy day. I need to vent!!!
Fearless keeps saying l always complain and l am going to have a talk with her...coz she complains all the time too, and that is OK. I was at the lunch bunch and everyone was served, and l waited and waited at least for my salad (which they forgot). But when they brought my entree it was cold. I said "this is cold" and Fearless said "OH you always complain" well she had just been complaining about a crying baby nearby, and then when they brought the child back after calming it she said "Oh I hope they aren't bringing it back" with a sour face. So she should talk and l am going to tell her so. After we arrived back , l took a late nap and when l woke a friend called and in our long conversation l mentioned that l didn't think that pesty neighbor realized when l was being rude as she continued her irritating actions, and she told me that pesty had commented that it was ME that was the reason this friend said she didn't like coming over to this area to visit anymore..(she was talking about Fearless' rude remarks to HER). So MY name is still being mentioned by pesty and l intend talking to her about THAT too. She is driving so many of her neighbors to distraction that they are all backing away from her. Not realizing that HER actions are why l am rude to her. I get along with both of her neighbors and the two opposite her( all but one kind lady have told me how she is bugging them) Some of us hurt others without even knowing it. I will let them know what they are doing and how that is affecting others. I have moved from my frontroom to my bedroom to keep out of eye and earshot of the pest, yet when l go out to do anything there she is interrupting.

Sorry Wackiness and l go on about such trivial things in my life.

Yesterday morning l went out with my new transplants and put in three of them in a staggered position and took the tiles away and as my nice neighbor came out l said "You are the decorator, please place the stones where you think they would look good" I just don't want them only leading to MY entrance, like the bench is MINE only. So she placed them thru the area to come in from both directions and staggered the ones to my area. Not enough to really keep feet dry, but just to suggest a pathway. It looks better. We need more dirt to patch and level the area. I have 4 cu ft of soil, but am not willing to put it out there. It actually need chips or stone or some type of ground cover like up in front. But things look so much better.

Then l showered and went to the Lunch Bunch. I announced l was dropping the Lunch Bunch now that the weather is good enough to have outdoor potlucks. I planned to have a birthday potluck later this month to honor two of our group's April birthdays. Fearless said if l was inviting him (one of the birthday guys) then leave her out.

After my nap l finished crock pot chicken and added mashed potatoes, peas and sweet potatoes and gravy all in individual containers and took them to Sean who did all the work of pulling out those horrible grass clumps and donated the tiles. Flagstone l think it is. That was my thank you, as he refused cash.

Okay, this is the third day in a row it's supposed to hit 60. however, the past two days have been windy and very raw. In anticipation of the weatherguessers getting in a luck guess today, I'm wearing a short sleeved T under my sweatshirt, just in case.
