Good morning Justin

Getting lost in work, college, and conversation is probably the best way to get through these most difficult times.

Meant to erase my post yesterday after acknowledging your grandmother. Some how it was forgotten. Prayer that your heart and soul will find peace and comfort during this time of sorrow.

Good evening Justin

Sounds like your Grandma lived a good life. Sometimes it is better to stay busy in a time like this. Take care buddy.

I decided to change the record on Dino's Jukebox tonight. Thought of a better one than my original idea.

This week's "Wild Card Week" edition of Dino's Jukebox wraps up a month of "Love" songs for the month of February. A new theme and new month kicks off next week.

Wild card week means I pick the decade and it can be any decade this week. I've gone bold and went with the 2000s this week. Our artist first came on the music scene in the early '00s and has been a success on both the Country and Pop charts. Her 2014 release, titled "1989" is named after the year she was born. Tonight's selection peaked at #4 in the US and Canada and #1 in Australia. And she's is one of Emily's favorite artists as well. Where for art thou, Romeo?

Justin & Mom, so sorry to hear that grandma passed away, I know she enjoyed all of your visits & times you took her out to eat & even just for the rides around the nursing home. She was so lucky to have both of you near by.

Thoughts & prayers are coming you way for the whole family. You were so lucky to know your grandma. As I said before our grandmothers both died long before any of us were thought of, we were lucky to know our grandfathers & enjoyed them both.

Take care & know that you have a lot of GB friends praying for you & Mom.

Thank you all so much for your comforting messages. You all are good friends. Your prayers are much appreciated.

I did not take today off of work since I just wanted to keep busy. Mom doesn't get paid leave for death in the family since she is only part time. I told her that we can afford to have her miss a few days. But she still wanted to go in today. I believe she did call off tomorrow though. Currently Aunt Chris (Mom's sister) is on her way from Florida. On Friday, Mom and Aunt Chris will be making the arrangements. I do know that it will definitely be at Root Funeral Home and Father Kevin will facilitate the funeral.

For those wondering what happened to Grandma, I believe it's a combination of 3 different things. She had a severe case of Urinary Tract Infection, had an irregular heart beat, and her body was just worn out (88 years old she was). On Tuesday, Grandma was taken to the hospital. Mom saw her Wednesday morning and said she was responding to Mom. However, when Mom and I went to visit her Wednesday evening, she was just breathing and was not responding. An hour or so later, she passed. So the last true visit I had with Grandma was on Sunday.

All of this happened with me operating on 2 hours of sleep. Had a big Business Ethics test on Wednesday, so Aaron, Marija, Ana, and I were studying for it until very late on Tuesday night. I took the test, which involved a lot of writing. Hardest exam I've ever had to take. I do believe that I did good on it.

Thankfully, I did get 10 hours of sleep last night. I hope to catch up on more sleep today.

Will be back later. {{{{ HUGS }}}}}

Sorry to hear about your Grand mother. You were fortunate to have a close relationship with her and to be around her during the years you can have fond memories of her. It is a tough thing to lose a loved one but you will get through it. You will never forget her, but you will put it in perspective given the time.

Good morning Justin

Am so very sorry your grandmother passed away. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. May God’s Grace give you strength during this difficult time. Sharing in your sorrow. With love and friendship.

Finished my posts early yesterday then watched some episodes on Netflix of America: The Story of Us. Learning some events that the history books do not mention. Also saw my fave TV series while waiting for the one day warmup.

Saw the temp recover rapidly from a warmer low of 1° (-17°C) today. With the deep freeze returning each night through the weekend, wanted to go to the store and get more chicken breasts to try my new recipes.

Got a fabulous deal at Mac's Mrk for split chicken breasts. They were $2.29 earlier in the morning and reduced to $1.49 a lb. Bought three of them, Neufchatel, 8 oz on sale for 99¢, and Feta cheese 8 oz for $4.99.

Returned home to work with 2 chicken breasts into bacon wrapped stuffed w/spinach breasts cooked in the toaster oven. Like them w/a little mayo mixed in the spinach, feta cheese and garlic mix.

Temp reached a high of 27° (-3°C) which was perfect for me to wear a baseball spring jacket w/light gloves and go for a walk up the mtn road. The late morning was wonderfully sunny w/a few little clouds floating by quickly at 6,000 ft.

Walked south up past my forest to see the new clear cut upo against my property line. Have some blow downs that the attorney landowner who owns right beside me had that section clear cut last winter.

The bright side of the new clear cut is that views of the Kilkenny Range and Mt Cabot are easily seen from my side of the loop road. Even the 4 story barn on the other side of the loop can now be seen.

While the sun remains below the 100'+ tall forest trees, it felt warm when some of the tree cut properties were reached. The sound was dead still. Only a light sound of wind was heard — and a woodpecker working for its meal.

Walked to the beginning of the fire road. Looked down it to notice the logging trucks have finished cutting. No new truck tracks w/their tire chains were seen. Thoughts of Spring and temps above freezing on most days filled my mind.

Then it was time to return. Walked north past the custom log cabin. It looks like it has not seen visitor's in a long time. Though the driveway was plowed from a storm several weeks aago. Much of the roof was raked.

In the one mile south up the mountain there are only two houses, both can be seen from the road. The trees have blankets covered much of their limbs. Were bare, it is the wind that uncovered them.

The two mile round trip has several hundred feet of elevation gain. My gps has not worked in several years. Plan on building up my legs in the warmer temps so that the entire loop road of 4¼ miles w/its 650 ft of elevation gain can be done w/ease.

My Co Insur adjuster stopped by to inspect to damage from the hit and run 1 month ago. Would imagine the estimate and the draft of the check will be rec'd next week.

The air temp is -4° (-20°C) and dropping. The high is to be 15° (-9°C). Yet -16° (-27°C) tonight.

Civil twilight is 5:59 AM EST. Night is 5:59 PM.

Sunrise: 6:29 AM. Set: 5:29 PM.

Length of day: 11h 00m. Length of visible light: 11h 59m. Tomorrow will be 3m 02s longer.

Off to the Mkt later to get some deals on produce and shop at a few other stores.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning, jjdm,

Oh, my! A very tricky weather situation here in Georgia! There is a 'Winter Weather Warning' for about the top half of the state, meaning there could be snow (a coupla inches) as far south as where I live (about 30 miles straight south of Atlanta). It's a great big watch-and-see what we'll get on the south side...could be just rain or snow (depending on where that danged weather system moves). I guess we'll just wait and see. :(

Have a great day!

Good morning Justin!

How is your grandmother?

An hour after the sun rose in this area we reached the low of the day. It was -33°F (-36°C). The 6,288 ft (1917 metre) summit of Mt Washington was 2 degrees warmer. Not a doubt this was the coldest night of the year.

What a great feeling the kerosene heater offers. Constant uninterrupted heat w/the house at a pleasing 78° F (26°C). This is with the bdrm window open at the bottom 3 inches.

Wore a t-shirt and light cotton pants as my posts were completed before 5:30 AM. Filled the heater w/more kero, then took a wonderful 90 minute nap. Woke to more warmth and the desire to cook.

Cut a thick chicken breast in half to have four boneless pieces. Made two using a different spinach stuffing in each, one w/a little mayo stirred in and the other w/a ricotta cheese mix. Both were wrapped w/turkey bacon and grilled in the toaster oven. Did like both of them. Need to make them further and give more taste tests.

Made tthe last wo dipped in flour, egg batter, panko bread crumbs and fried in evoo w/ garlic and a 5 cheese topping. Decided to boil some farfalle (bow ties) then made homemade bruschetta w/the works to add to them. What a tasty treat.

Turned off the kero heater at 11 AM. The house was hot and was sweating after preparing the different styles of food.

Took at drive when the temp rose to 3°F (-16°C) to Shaw's for some Genoa salami and some other cold cuts ends in a styrofoam pkg for $2.99 a pound. Got my mail at the P.O. Rec'd an acknowledgement of the Insur claim in the mail.

Stopped at the local auto collision center to let them know the Dart was going to be repaired next week. Asked for the favor of buffing out a few of the small scratches as a free bonus and for a new Ford Focus, C-Max or Fusion, to test drive car for the two days the car will be in their shop.

The air temp is 9° (-13°C). The high is to be 25° (-4°C). Yet -14° (-26°C) tonight.

Civil twilight is 6:01 AM EST. Night is 5:58 PM.

Sunrise: 6:30 AM. Set: 5:28 PM.

Length of day: 10h 57m. Length of visible light: 11h 56m. Tomorrow will be 3m 01s longer.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning Justin!

How was your w/e?
Other than busy?

Went to sleep an hour early Sunday night. Was tired from using the Sno Thro the day before. Woke up at midnight and completed my rounds very earlier than usual. Nice to get in a 90 minute nap and it still be early in the day.

Readied for a drive to Whitefield, NH. Wanted to get single chicken breasts for $2.09 a lb ea, instead for buying 4+ lbs at Shaw's for $1.99 a lb. Visited that Subway to get the workers to correct a 55¢ overcharge the day before.

A 6" brekky sub and a coffee are still an amazing $3, $3.27 inc tax at Subway in these parts. Got my 55¢ adjustment on my purchase.

Enjoyed the entirely scenic drive to Littleton via NH Rt 116 Visited a small market to say hello to two friends who work there and have not seen in a year. Pizza slices are excellent and one gets a ⅙ of a plain cheese pizza pie for $2.50 inc tax.

Stopped for bread and bleach at WM. Went in Shaw's for their 26 oz can of cream of chicken soup on sale for $1.69. They still do not have it in stock. Dollar Tree also does not have its grated Parmesan cheese 8 oz for $1 in either. Warehouses are out of stock.

Got a phone call late afternoon from Lowe's w/a message, "If you want 2 cans of kerosene or a dozen, we have them in stock". Interesting that four days ago the message was, "Kero has arrived and they are going fast."

Thought about this for hours. Bought one 5 gallon can for the w/e cold. Also want a spare amount in case the power goes out. Lots more heat in the kero heater than turning the stove burners or the oven on, in case of a power outage.

Temp peaked at 4° (-20°C) in the afternoon. The temp was on a steady decline for the remainder of the day. Fired up the kero heater mid afternoon. Fabulous to absorb that constant heat and wake up to an extra warm house.

Wind was cutting my face all day. Wind gusts were to 15 mph (25 km/h)

The air temp is -30.5° (-34°C). The high is to be 16° (-9°C) .

W/a wind chill value as low as 42° below zero (-41C).

Civil twilight is 6:03 AM EST. Night is 5:56 PM.

Sunrise: 6:32 AM. Set: 5:27 PM.

Length of day: 10h 54m. Length of visible light: 11h 53m. Tomorrow will be 3m 01s longer.

Have a wonderful day!

Good evening Justin


Happy Monday one and all. I heard on the radio today about this being the 70th anniversary of the American flag being raised at Iwo Jima. They interviewed one of the local residents who took part in the fighting who is now 89 years o*d.

They do occasionally have war Veterans on the radio show and it's always fascinating to hear their stories and realize how good we truly have it here.

This is one of, hopefully, the last brutally cold nights of the season. Currently +4 outside with a matching wind chill. Night time temps will stay around zero all week. Tyler county sits on a three hour delay tomorrow. This could be their first day back since February 13th. Stay warm.

Good Morning Justin,

Beginning today, exotic mating rituals of the animal kingdom from the San Diego zoo web site.

"With their fancy feathers, it’s no surprise that birds take home the prize for most exotic courting routines. Male peacocks embody one of the most impressive courting displays of the avian world, and females are rather picky about their mates. In fact, the peacock’s female-attraction power is directly related to the perfection of a male’s spectacular train, including its overall length, the number of iridescent 'eyes' that are present, and even the symmetry of their pattern."

Happy Monday!
