Good morning Justin!

Hope you remain busy in college, work, and have find in between both. Also saw your leery of the lobster. Now expressing my observations as well. Took me me 5-6x of trying lobster to learn to like it. Not sure if it is worth $12. Sure is worth $6 to me.

Enjoyed researching online more info on my grapes. Particularly why no fruit. Vine is 4 years old and 2" wide at the base of the cane.

Need to prune the vines down to only fours shoots, called the Kniffen Method, in the fall or spring while it remains dormant.

Have located 20 gauge galvanized wire to make a wire trellis going east and one going west in the spring. Each location is in full sun for 12 hours plus.

Read from many sites the most common mistake people make is not pruning hard enough. Light pruning doesn’t promote adequate fruiting, whereas heavy pruning provides the greatest quality of grapes. Also cut the oldest wood and just leave the newest shoots.

Mowed the remainder of the lawn behind the house. Then delighted sitting in the sun w/just shorts on reading my chess magazines. The sky have very few clouds, with the sun being strong for mid Sept. The temp climbed to 63° (17°C). Will take it over rain or gray clouded skies.

Civil twilight is 5:59 AM EDT. Night is 7:20 PM.

Sunrise: 6:28 AM. Set: 6:51 PM.

Length of day: 12h 22m. Length of visible light: 13h 20m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), the high is to be 58° (14°C) in sunny skies.

Off to the market for very light buying. Then some visits to other stores.

Have a fantastic day!

Good Morning Justin,

You look very leery holding that lobster. As I'm reading about the Lazy Perch, thinking Lazy Lobster, NOT!
Have you ever held a crab? All I ever did was gently kick the too small ones back in the water. I let my husband pick them up.

As busy as you were, good for you for taking the time to visit your "sitting up" grandma.

Glad to hear mom is still working.

Unlocking your car:

Two blondes were recently observed in a parking lot trying to unlock the door of their Mercedes with a coat hanger. Here is their dialogue:

Blonde One: I can't seem to get this door unlocked!

Blonde Two: Well, you'd better hurry up and try harder! it's starting to rain, and the top is down!

HHD!

Good morning Justin!

Love that you are in the Nat'l Society of Leadership and Success. Like you removing your home address on your website. Wise. Not a fan of the chosen typeface. Makes it too hard to read. Arial, times roman, helvetica, etc are more common and pleasing to the eye. IMO. Made a quarterly 12-16 page merchandise flyers and annual catalogs w/over 600 items for a decade.

Great you ate out at a new place. Yes indeed, The Lazy Perch is pricey. Only your mom and you know if it is worth the money. Do we get to see the perch meals and decor inside? Practicing the virtue of patience.

Wonderful to visit your g/mother. Glad she was sitting in her wheelchair. Would enjoy growing up in your neighborhood. Think the nearby park is excellent. A lovely quiet not so rural or urban neighborhood. Perfect.

Would enjoy seeing "Man on Fire". Will see it on Putlocker.is. The theme looks fantastic and the ratings are superb. Thank you for the idea.

Know that Al's store and the mgmt see you in the spotlight. Usually when one retires the corp places the qualified into the vacant position. Looks to be you. You do have a mighty fab job at Al's. Glad you are doing well, making money, and keeping busy.

Oh No, to learn the entire City of Valparaiso gets flooded. A good architect of drainage would make million designing a correct plan for the town See the elevation for the city is 794 ft and Lake Michigan's elevation is 577 ft above sea level. If that is the correct height.

Would imagine $12 for a whole Maine lobster 1¼ lbs on average is quite a deal for shipping 1,300-1,400 miles from the source. Have you eaten lobster yet?

Am addicted to those cutlets. Feel the need to have them several times a week. You will be pleased with the flavor. The taste is locked inside. Have made them all three ways. Like them all equally.

Another idea is the cut the plain cutlets into bite size strips and add to a salad. They are best tho as the main course.

Gas was $3.59 and just dropped to $3.41.It is about time. The southern part of NH sees gas at $3.25 and $3.30. Your short term predictions are wise. Less chance of a world event that might increase price dramatically.

Have fun and sleep long and well. Talk next time.

Woke up to light rain falling at 1 AM yesterday morning. It rained for two hours, it stopped for a few hours and began again, more moderately this time. Completed my rounds, then took a 90 min nap. The sky was still dark.

Woke up to rain and played StarCraft: Brood War. Had one of the best battles ever. The Protoss and terran fighting side by side against me w/my Zerg army. Very hard work, yet very entertaining.

Drove to the PO after the rain stopped late morning. Then went to Shaw's for some boneless, skinless, chicken breasts on sale for $1.99 a lb. Lucked out seeing 2 pkgs of 80/20% ground lamb for $1.99 a lb.

Returned home for a low carb lamb burger lunch and saw a fabulous epi of Law & Order: SVU. While investigating a baby's infected w/Aids, the unit uncovers a doctor who claims Aids is not real. That it is a gov't and pharmaceutical conspiracy.

Did see the sun for 10 minutes. Just was not time to enjoy it. Did go out and add some compost to one clump of echinacea to stand it upright. Picked 6 more tomatoes. Storing them in the fridge to make salsa. Will need to be fairly soon.

Civil twilight is 5:58 AM EDT. Night is 7:22 PM.

Sunrise: 6:27 AM. Set: 6:53 PM.

Length of day: 12h 25m. Length of visible light: 13h 23m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), the high is to be 65° (18°C). The sun returns.

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening Justin

Glad to see you're doing well. The website looks great.


With the Fall approaching, we have the syndicated shows coming back. My favorite, Jeopardy, is back for it's 31st season with Alex Trebek hosting. BTW the show originally debuted over 50 years ago on NBC with Art Fleming hosting. I gotta say, growing up on the Alex version I think he's done the show justice and it's stayed popular being the 2nd highest rated syndicated game show behind it's counterpart, Wheel Of Fortune.

It's interesting the game is played the same way it's been for nearly 50 years. Alex (and earlier, Art) gives you the answer. You have to come up with the correct question. There have only been a few minor rule changes in the Trebek era. Starting with season 2, you could not ring in until Alex finishes reading the answer. On the game board, there is a small set of lights that border the game board that is typically not seen by us the TV viewing audience. This is the contestants' indication that they may ring in with their response. This allows everyone to get a chance at reading the clue and it opens a good competitive element to the game if more than one contestant knows the correct question.

The second rule has been the money. When Jeopardy debuted in 1964, answer values ranged from $10-$50 in the first round and $20-$100 in the second round. This was changed in the brief 1977-78 run to $25-$125 and $50-$250 and again to $100-$500 and $200-$100 when Alex started hosting in 1984. When their 18th season started in the early 2000s, they doubled this amount to $200-$1000 and $400-$2000 where it is today. Contestants on average can win around $20,000 an episode.

The version in 1977-78 had several changes. The low scoring player was eliminated after each round and the last remaining contestant played "Super Jeopardy." A bonus round of sorts for $5,000. No final Jeopardy was played in that version.

The current version is played just like it was in 1964 and should stay that way in my opinion. Alex Trebek has grown back his signature moustache and has set up a Facebook and Twitter campaign on whether or not he keeps it.

Dry days continue here. Currently sitting in the upper 40s locally.

Good evening Justin, stopping by here on my way to my second home, over in TL.

One way to resolve the contact info, besides the email address, is to hot-link that information in your resume, with a button that allows the prospective employer to DL a full copy, rather than see a PDF (or similar) on the web site. Security by obfuscation, in other words.

Your resume page has a problem - the verbiage is not wrapping around the picture at the top. There's a bit missing as a result. Also as I look, several parts can't be displayed now. If they are images, I recommend a 75 or 95 DPI, png or jpg graphic, whatever the other dimensions might be.

Everything else is commented elsewhere. Your site is coming along pretty nicely.

Have a great evening.

Good afternoon, everyone!

Today’s Pictures:
Isaac Holding His New Pal

Lobster Finale

Phewwwww, it’s been a very busy past week for me. Thank you all for your understanding about me not being able to post on GB! I have some spare time now, so I will post a quick summary.

On Friday, Marija, Ana, and I went to a leadership orientation and training session. Here is a link that explains more about this society. The orientation and training session was suppose to last from 10 am - 2 pm. However, it went over the 30 minutes scheduled time. Since I still had a 30 minute commute to get back home, I knew I would be late for work.

So I called work and explained my situation and said that I would be 15 minutes late. Steve was understanding and said to be careful. In the end, I was only 9 minutes late (3:09 instead of the scheduled 3 pm time). So I ended up working a 3:15 pm - 11:15 pm shift in grocery.

On Saturday, I got my hair cut and took care of several errands. Then I worked 12 pm - 8 pm, cashiering.

I found out from Mom that she was scheduled again at Al’s Karwick the next week. She has two days (12 hours total).

On Sunday, I lectored and was an eucharistic minister at church. My store manager, who went to that Mass, said that I did a great job with the readings.

Right after church, I hurried up and got ready for work. I worked 9 am - 4:15 pm, in Frozen, Dairy, and as the Acting Manager for 4 hours.

After work, Mom and I went out for our weekly out to eat treat. The restaurant we went to was called The Lazy Perch. It was a fancier type restaurant and the food was pricer. We both had the perch sandwich with french fries. For dessert, we split a slice of Key Lime Pie. Overall, the food was excellent! If we do go back, we would go back on a Wednesday, when they offer a dinner special.

From there, we went to visit Grandma. She was doing well and was actually sitting in her wheelchair watching a history program. It must have been a good program since Grandma was actually sitting up and not just watching it from her bed - LOL! It was a nice visit with her and we watched a little of the program with her.

After that, I came home and caught up with several things. Then I did some more work on my website. I did some revisions such as color, text style, making pic links instead of plain button links, and taking down my mail address. The professor does require some contact info so hiring companies can contact us. Thanks to all for all of your feedback and suggestions! Here is my updated website.

On Monday, school went well. In Accounting, we got back our first quiz. I ended up getting a 90 out of 100 on it. Then we learned about adjustments. After that, we enjoyed our lunch break.

In Information Systems, we learned more about hardware. In Criminal Justice, we finished up chapter 5 by talking about the different levels of law enforcement. In Business Speech, we got back our first paper and I ended up getting a 50/50!! Then we did a small group activity where we watched several scenes from “Man on Fire” and then answered some questions.

After classes were done, Marija left since it was her birthday and her boyfriend was going to take her out. Ana, Aaron, and I stayed after so we could do our Information Systems quiz. I ended up getting a 20/20 on it.

Last night I caught up on some sleep and woke up around 9:30 am. I worked ahead on some Accounting homework and decided to take a break and catch up on GB. Today Mom is working 12 pm - 6 pm, bagging at Al’s Karwick.

Due to the increase in workload and the same amount of work hours, my time on GB will continue to be limited. I’ll try to stop in every few days. :)

Please know that I continue to read your messages here daily whenever I get a break in my day.

I’m only responding to a few select today, but I do read ALL of your messages.

KHF, the lobsters were $11.99 a piece and we almost sold out during our big event. We did have some leftover. Mom was handling the 8 hour shifts alright. Though, she is now down to two 6 hours shifts this week.

Midnight, the lobsters were 11.99. Two other recipes that I recently made were the stuffed mushrooms and pizza casserole. In a few days, I’ll be trying out your chicken parmesan recipe. As for the drainage problem, it’s not just at Valparaiso University, it’s in the whole city of Valparaiso that experience flooding in several areas. When I was heading home, I was on a main road and there was tons of water. I almost had to turn around and find another way. The professor does require some contact info on the website so hiring companies can contact us. As long as I am in school, I plan to stay at Al’s. The reason is that they are flexible with my school schedule. As for after school, I plan on sticking with Al’s for a few years. Depending on how high up I am promoted and how quickly it happens will determine if and when I start looking for another job. For our area, gas prices will remain in the 3.30-3.60 range. However, if local market prices remain down, that could shift our range to 3.10-3.40. As for long term predictions, I do not do those. The accuracy rate for those are lower since I don’t know what world events will happen during the course of a year. The only thing that is almost certain for long term predictions is that gas prices do up during the Spring and start falling sometime in the Summer. Other than that, I stick to short term predictions.

attitash, we almost sold out of the lobsters during our big event. We did have some leftover. The professor does require some contact info so hiring companies can contact us.

Dino72, nice 9/11 tribute and thanks for this week’s jukebox song.

TUrtLE, woahhhh that’s pretty nifty about the lobsters having different colors! Mom and I did enjoy the Sunday movie! We love how you share a variety of movies. May I have some TUrtLE Wax? I got my new rig several days ago. :) lol, I love the blonde jokes so you can keep posting them!

GJ, I actually made up that quote. I did edit and say that the quote was from me. I ended up switching my links to pic links. Thanks!

Wrench, The professor does require some contact info so hiring companies can contact us. I did take down my exact address.

MusicTeacher, no need to apologize! I understand about being busy. I have been reading your updates at your place. BTW, I also have the link to my Facebook page on my Contact page. Hmmm, I wonder if an inventory scanner and a telxon are the same thing. In my picture, I am holding a telxon. I used it to just order products. The telxon also lets me know when we have deals on products ordered. However, we don’t use the telxons to check for inventory. Congrats on your new limo!! I also just got a new GB car.

Good day!

Good Morning Justin,
If you'd rather I don't leave the blonde jokes due to your time restraints please let me know.

Slot machine winner:

A dumb blonde was standing in front of a soda machine outside of a local store. After putting in sixty cents, a root beer pops out of the machine. She set it on the ground, puts sixty more cents into the machine, and pushes another button; suddenly, a coke comes out the machine!

She continued to do this until a man waiting to use the machine became impatient. "Excuse me, can I get my soda and then you can go back to whatever stupid thing you are doing?"

The blonde turns around and says, "Yeah right! I'm not giving up this machine while I'm still winning!"

Have a Totally Terrific Tuesday!

Good morning Justin!

Will be pleasing to learn of your college and work days.

Temp was down to 36° (2°C) yesterday morning. It did not warm up to 50° (10°C) until 11 AM. Watered the tomatoes and picked 5 of them. Nice, juicy, and firm ones, thanks to the crushed egg shells amended to the soil in May.

Wind was from the north and had a chill to it. The sun sun felt fabulous. The shade did not. Performed further garden maintenance and picked 1/4 cup of blueberries.

Many of the daylilies are browning with the exception of the one transplanted in early May, named radiant greeting. They bloom orange-yellow with a wide red halo and slightly ruffled petals. No longer w/blooms this year, just lush green growth for next spring to flower.

Mowed 25% of the lawn around the highbush bb's. Have the lawn behind the house remaining. The sun is low in the horizon, the lawn is now almost entirely in the shade. In just weeks the sun will never be seen above treeline until April arrives.

Saw an episode of Law & Order: SVU and then one from CSI: Miami. Made some fried rice w/red and orange peppers, onions, mushrooms, julienne carrots and broccoli. Felt the need of a change of veggies w/ribs and chicken cutlets.

Civil twilight is 5:57 AM EDT. Night is 7:24 PM.

Sunrise: 6:26 AM. Set: 6:55 PM.

Length of day: 12h 28m. Length of visible light: 13h 27m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 45° (7°C), the high is to be 60° (15°C). There is a 70% chance of rain. It was raining lightly at 2 AM. Now moderate rain falls far south of here.

Have a wonderful day!

Good Evening, Justin! ♪ ♫ Thanks for sharing the link to your website! You should add the link to your Facebook page profile, under "About." I have my personal Music Teaching website, and my company's Keyboard Concepts websites, listed under my Facebook "About" profile on me.

Sorry I have fallen behind with reading your updates since getting my new job as Assistant Manager of Keyboard Concepts. Going from self-employment to FT traditional employment with very long hours, 45 hours a week with the M-F from 10AM - 7PM schedules and round trip commutes of 41 miles a day, doesn't leave me with much time to keep up around here.

But when I do see your updates on FB in my news feed, I click on like to let you know I saw them!

Today, September 15th was payday. Also I did more inventory work. But yours is so much easier with that cool, handheld inventory scanner! I wish my company gave that tool to me. I have to manually bring the books to the cash register to check the inventory and update it on the computer. I would be able to accurately check inventory more often for accuracy if only they gave me such a device. But our Sheet Music Department is not huge, like a grocery store.

I do post occasional pictures on FB, so that is another great way to KIT with me.

Take care and regards to your Mom! I will try to at least √ out your pictures whenever I get a chance. I like using my down time at work to play on the pianos in the showroom whenever any of my two Managers grant me permission. I just don't want my playing to get in the way of Customers, things that need to get done at work, etc. But my Managers give me this privilege, as they know I will burn out if all I do all day long is work too hard on Customers and inventory.

Thanks for taking the time to read my long Studio updates whenever you get a chance.

Best wishes with your schooling too. BTW, I just reached my 3 million points milestone and earned my brand new red GB convertible below ↓!

Good Night! Please √ out my brand new GB red limousine, my all-time favorite GB car!

Good evening Justin

Tonight's edition of Dino's Jukebox was preempted from last Thursday. Thought we'd spin it tonight to keep the alphabet on schedule.

The first of the artists in this week's jukebox entry became a huge success as a Country artist. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he claims Rock was his first love, but felt he'd be more successful being a Country singer. As of June 2014, He has sold nearly 70 million albums in the US making him the most successful selling artist in any genre in the US since Nielsen Soundscan started tracking music sales in 1991. He sings lead covering a classic tune from the K entry of Dino's Jukebox.

The K artists have had a bit of success as well. They formed in 1973 in New York and have been known for their extravagant stage shows, their lavish costumes, and their unique face makeup. In 1983, still young music channel MTV got to do something that no one else had done with the band. Show them without makeup. They would go on to perform for a good few years without their makeup including in tonight's performance which comes from MTV's Unplugged performance in 1995. Here are the superstars collaborating for this tune.

Good Morning Justin,
PO today, I promise. :-)

It's time to resume blonde jokes.
We'll begin today with a graphic that was shared with me by GB niaw. Thanks niaw.

I have kept a list of those I've used in the past, but for some reason they don't match up with those on the blonde joke web site I have saved. What I'm saying is, if you see repeats please bear with me. I'll do my best.

Have a Most Marvelous Monday!

Good morning Justin!

How did your w/e go? IS gas on downward trend? Will that be quick or slow? What are your gas predictions for the winter in 2015, and beyond to next summer?

The wunderground.com forecast for yesterday was partly cloudy and 56° (13.3°C). The actual weather was absolutely no sun, 46° (7.7°C), and dampness to the bone.

The charts revealed zero rainfall, yet there were beads of water on the car and puddles on the plastic water trough beneath the wiper blades. A check of yesterday's dew point of read a low of -99.9°F and a high of 200.0°F. Crazy numbers.

Rinsed off the gravel stains that splattered from the rain bouncing up from the driveway. Then used a 24" x 16" chamois sheep leather skin to dry the cars spot free. Love a chamois over anything else.

The secret to using a real chamois skin is to soak and rinse it in a tub of water that has only 1 drop of liquid soap. Then it is dried on the back of a chair in the house.

This manner keeps it clean and nicely ready for future use. Mine is at least 15 years old. It makes the finish shiny and spot free.

It is now hunting season for bear and waterfowl. It began Sept 1. Deer, turkey, and small game begins on Sept 15. Hunting season ends Dec 15. Pheasant until Dec 31.

Small game and furbearers until March of 2015. Hearing lots of gunshots in the distance. May blow my whistle to save the game in my area. Have done this for years.

Watered the tomatoes and checked the strawberries. None. Picked a half cup of bb's. Returned to the house and cooked 2 split chicken breasts cut into 4 ½" thin halves making cutlets in evoo.

Then the fat was trimmed from 3.5 lbs of southern ribs ($1.99 a lb for each), deboned, and placed in the crock pot w/2 oz of water, carrots, potatoes, and greens beans. That will be cooked for 3-3.5 hours.

Enjoyed an episode of Law and Order: SVU that had Robin Williams masquerading as a police officer. Playing science engineer Merritt Rock, he dupes people into committing crimes and then turns his subsequent trial into a media circus. One of the best epi's yet.

Watched the afternoon ballgame along with football on the internet. Looks like fall weather and its chilly temps have arrived and may stay until winter takes its command. There was a most beautiful aurora borealis Saturday night, along w/the sunset, and a colorful undercast. It can be seen on the Mt Washington Obs camera. (3m 3s)

Civil twilight is 5:55 AM EDT. Night is 7:26 PM.

Sunrise: 6:25 AM. Set: 6:56 PM.

Length of day: 12h 31m. Length of visible light: 13h 30m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 37° (3°C), the high is to be 62° (17°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a pleasant day!

Good evening Justin

Just checked out your website. Interesting.
It's Sunday evening and I think it's safe to say Fall is making it's way in here locally. Some of the trees are starting to show yellow leaves and the temps will drop into the upper 40s tonight.

It was a great Saturday locally. Took in the Oil & Gas Festival Band o Rama held at Tyler Consolidated High School. What this entails is several area high school marching bands competing based on there performance and appearance. Tyler does not compete in this because they are the host school. The competition starts off with the parade held in nearby Sistersville, WV. All of the bands are judged on their appearance and performance at the parade, and then to Tyler Consolidated's football field to perform their halftime show as it would be performed during a football game halftime. We seen 13 great bands perform including Hundred High School from SteelPenny's part of the Mountain State as well as Mrs. K and I's alma mater, Parkersburg South. Also included in the lineup was schools from neighboring towns and counties as well as George Washington High School from the Charleston area about 2 1/2 hours away. Not sure who won in the various categories as we took off right after Tyler performed because after the sun went down, so did the temperature. As a matter of fact, tonight is the first night I've not worn shorts to work since May.

All in all a good weekend for the sports as well. Victories from the high schoolers of Tyler Consolidated and Parkersburg South, college victories from WVU and Marshall, and most importantly, a basketball victory for Emily's team this weekend as well. She reported to me in a text that she had 2 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals. She's getting good at this and just three short months away from the new Middle School season.

The preempted Dino's Jukebox will spin tomorrow night. Two big names for the "K" entry that excelled in their respective genres. See you then.

Good Morning Justin,

Your Sunday Movie is entitled, After Midnight. This video was made by Steve Politte from a Power Point Presentation by Chee Chee Martin.

The song is also entitled, "After Midnight" by Kim Waters.

You will note that the length is almost 5 minutes, but there is NO text except the one frame after the credits.
You can watch as much or as little as you have time for.

May you be blessed today!

Good morning Justin!

Hope you can attend church this morning w/your mom. Also hope she is getting some hours. Gather you plan on staying at Al's unless a $50k a year job is found. What's the plan?

Finished the incredible "12 Years a Slave," a true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted via a ruse that he has a violin gig in NY, drugged, and sold into slavery.

Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity.

In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life. If one has no idea of what a slave went thru before the Civil War, this story must be seen. A movie everyone should see, experience, and learn. 5 of 5 stars.

"12 Years a Slave" is free at this site. A clean site w/o malware, phishing, or fraud. Some AV's give false positives. Have been using this site for 6 months.

gives the putlocker.is movie site a 100% safe rating, as do scores of others that review sites.

One raw, damp to the bone day yesterday w/the temp at 41° (5°C) at 9 AM. Changed into jeans and a thick winter long sleeve shirt before heading out at 9:30 AM. Visited the Recycling Center to dispose of my items to avoid them collecting

Drove to Whitefield, to visit my pal the meat mgr, bought nothing, stopped at that town's library to order ‘The Terrorist’s Son: A Story of Choice,’ from the NH State Library.

The high temp was 52° with a nice steady light rain arriving in the afternoon. Saw lots of hues of autumn color on the trees during my drives. Temps will see the low 40's and mid 30's (11° to 3°C) for a week. That'll boost the leaf intensity up a notch, as will the rain.

Civil twilight is 5:54 AM EDT. Night is 7:28 PM.

Sunrise: 6:24 AM. Set: 6:56 PM.

Length of day: 12h 34m. Length of visible light: 13h 33m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 45° (7°C), the high is to be 56° (13°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning Justin!

Great to learn to lead and be a leader. Be a take charge person. Yet not a tyrant. Feedback is constructive and is advice. Hope you remain very busy this w/e. Looking forward to your pix.

Right after my posts yesterday morning a 2 hour nap was taken. Was seeing dbl during my rounds early in the morning and images were a bit blurry. Felt refreshed and much better after my rest.

Began to see the end of the movie that was watched 2 days ago. Then got a phone call from my bank in Boston that said my credit/debit card from them was most likely compromised as it was used recently at Home Depot.

Apparently the hack into the Home Depot stores nationwide could be the largest such theft in history. That was 9 days ago. My bank is playing catch up to 1,000's of customers. Will have a new cc # and it is being processed and sent.

Decided to go on a drive to Whitefield. Went to the store my pal is the meat mgr. He was not at work on this day noticed the meat prices are still increasing slightly. At least red grapes were on sale for $1.79. Nice and large, firm, and juicy ones.

Returned to town to get my mail, then shopped at Shaw's. Bought some bone-In country style pork spareribs for $1.98 a lb. Returned home to Separate split chicken breast from the bone and then fry some breaded chicken breast cutlets in evoo.

Had a fabulous lunch along w/a salad of leaf lettuce, baby spinach, homegrown tomatoes w/lots of veggies.

The forecast called for clear skies and 62 (17C). There was no sun and the high was 52 (11C). Almost chilly for shorts and a t-shirt. Saw fishermen on the CT River and peeps at the store in fall jackets.

Lows will be in the 60's (17C)for the next week. In between possible rain storms today and Tuesday.

Civil twilight is 5:53 AM EDT. Night is 7:29 PM.

Sunrise: 6:22 AM. Set: 7:00 PM.

Length of day: 12h 37m. Length of visible light: 13h 36m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 36° (2.2°C), the high is to be 58° (14°C), with a 40% chance of rain.

Have a tremendous day!

I did not which they figured. My card is cancelled with a new one on the way. Looking forward to cycling home in about 1 hour. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Good morning Justin!

My opinion is you created a magnificent wed page w/super links. Everything about it is superb. Not sure about your home address, email, and tel #. Did look it up. Keep your excellent house. Love your neighborhood. Also love each web tab and its heading. Fabulous! Well done!

Left early to take the pleasing drive on the CT River hwy (Rt 135) that was resurfaced, then the lines painted. The river and the flat valley looked so peaceful.

Could see hues of color beginning on many trees. Night temps will drop into the 40's and high 30's (3-8°C) for the next week. That and lots of rain will allow the leaves to become brilliant in the next 2-3 weeks. Looking forward to the autumn splendor.

Bought at Big Papa's Mkt were softball size oranges 67¢ ea, largest cantaloupes ever seen $1.75, baseball size lemons 2 for $1, limes 5/$1 and baby bella 10 oz for $2.25.

Also baskets of #2 (slightly bruised) orange bell peppers 75¢ a lb, 1 lb bag of baby spinach $3, a 12 oz (2 pints) pkg of raspberries a foot long $2.50, blackberries 6 oz (1 pint) $1.67, and the largest avocados ever seen for 78¢ ea.

Visited my pal at Rite Aid and spoke about baseball. Bought lots of items at WM. Even bought coat hangers. My ongoing collection of ball game t-shirts ran out of hangers.

Saw light, steady rain, the kind that is so gentle and needed to raise the water table for the coming winter. The temp was a cool 65° (18°C). Did wash the car and allow the rain to rinse it.

Civil twilight is 5:52 AM EDT. Night is 7:31 PM.

Sunrise: 6:21 AM. Set: 7:02 PM.

Length of day: 12h 40m. Length of visible light: 13h 39m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C), the high is to be 64° (18°C), with partly sunny skies in the forecast.

Have a delightful day!

Good evening Justin, looked at your site and pretty much agree with KHF. I do have one question, and one suggestion, for you.

Who is the author of your favorite quote? I think you should properly attribute the source.

The suggestion I have is to use your picture as a hotlink also, maybe having it link to the company web site, if there is such a beastie.

Another link-suggestion. If the companies you have hot links for have a web presence/image, maybe include their graphic and use it as the hotlink, rather than that basic blue box. I believe Gas Buddies has one.

One other comment - I think the word "cycling" should probably be "cyclic", yet then again, I'm nit-picking. ;)

Good luck and hope you get a high score for this site.

Cheers...

Hi Justin - That is a very clean, well designed web site. I think I did note one typo, but it is very clear and easy to use and follow.

The "maybe" typo is where you are talking about your gas price predictions and you say "...gas prices following a cycling pattern." I think you meant to say that "...the gas prices follow a cycling pattern."

Good afternoon Justin....a strong wind from the northwest has it feeling like late November & not September. High of 23°C/73.4°F(5AM) dropping to 16°C/60.8°F this afternoon. Cloudy with occasional light drizzle. Went to the local Fire Hall this morning for the traditional 9/11 service. The time of the service occurs with the fist plane striking the World Trade Centre. A nice quite memorial service to recall those who lost their lives during the tragic day 13 years ago. The Fire Dept runs the service but invites the local Police & Paramedics to attend. An observation I realized at the service of how many new faces that did not work for one of the services 13 years ago. Have a good day.

Good Morning Justin,
Here ya go. This is what I was referring to yesterday.

A rainbow of lobsters:

Most American lobsters have a brown or greenish cast before cooking, but when they have genetic defects, they can come in a rainbow of colors. The odds of finding an odd lobster: 1 in 2 million.

This rare blue lobster was caught Aug. 23, 2014, off Pine Point in Scarborough, Maine and was promptly named Skylar. The lobster was donated to the Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor.

One week later, farther up the coast a veteran lobsterman discovered what researchers consider a 1-in-100-million find: a
white lobster.

The following Thursday a couple of miles to the northwest, a lobsterman caught a second albino crustacean off the breakwater in Rockland.

A person is more likely to drown — 1-in-3.5-million odds — or get attacked by a shark — a 1-in-11.5-million possibility — than see an albino lobster, according to the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine in Orono and the folks who keep the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville. No one has calculated the odds of finding two 1-in-100-million albinos in the same week.

The two white lobsters are being housed in the same crate now, but one will get a new home at Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor and the other will go to Brooks Trap Mill in Thomaston, a marine supply store just east of Rockland that has a tank of other Maine sea life.

Remembering 9/11.

Good morning Justin!

Will enjoy an update that you have when you have the free time. Did enjoy Dino's post very much.

Today is the 13th anniversary of the Sept 11, 2001 attacks on the Pentagon in Washington DC and in New York City. Thank God a group lead by Todd Beamer, crashed their passenger jet (killing all 44 people aboard including the four hijackers) in Shanksville PA. A total of 2,996 perished (2,977 victims, 19 hijackers.)

Only 14 people escaped from the impact zone of the South Tower (floors 77 to 85) after it was hit and only four people from the floors above it. Individuals escaped from as high up on the South Tower as the 84th floor after initial impact. They escaped via stairwell A. At the Pentagon, all 58 passengers, four flight attendants, and both pilots on board, as well as 125 occupants died.

Hikers in NH will fly flags on 48 4,000 foot (1,219 metres) summits on Saturday, noon to 2PM as an annual memorial. A thousand spectators will attend. A peace and reflection gathering afterwards is held. Went to the summit of Mt Liberty (4,459'/1,359m) 3 days after the attacks and raised the first flag.

Saw a fantastic movie that the review will eventually be typed. Then got into seeing Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad, fight 5 bouts. She is 24 wins, 0 loses, w/21 knockouts. No draws or no contests when she retired in 2007. Laila is now a fashion model at age 36.

Also saw her pull thru for the win in the Ali vs Jacqui Frazier-Lyde fight in 2001. This was the First Pay Per View boxing card ever to be headlined by women.

In 2008, Jacqui Frazier-Lyde, an attorney practicing law, was elected in Philadelphia as a Municipal Court Judge. Laila Ali is the eighth of her father's nine children and his youngest daughter. Laila Ali is now a fashion model at age 36.

Mixed Martial Art (MMA) Cat Zingano (Cathilee Deborah Zingano, {née Albert}, born July 1, 1982) was seen in several MMA bouts on youtube. Cat is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. On April 13, 2013, she became the first woman to win a UFC fight by technical knockout.

By 11 AM the temp just touched 60° (15°C) and it was time to go outdoors. Tackled the strawberry plants. Have new flowers, no further fruit in the everbearers. Picked enough blueberries for my next cereal ,watered the plants, then mowed 25% more of the lawn.

Enjoyed a healthy salad w/two homegrown tomatoes, lots of leaf lettuce and plenty of fresh veggies. It was topped with evoo and then cottage cheese. Sat in the sun enjoying the cloudless perfect summer day that reached a pleasing 72° (22°C).

Civil twilight is 5:51 AM EDT. Night is 7:33 PM.

Sunrise: 6:20 AM. Set: 7:04 PM.

Length of day: 12h 43m. Length of visible light: 13h 42m. Tomorrow will be 3m 2s shorter.

The temp is 58° (14°C), the high is to be 69° (21°C), with a 90% chance for rain. It is raining lightly.

Off to the market and other stores for some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening Justin

Glad you liked the pictures. I always enjoy your's.

As we know, Thursday marks the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 US Terror Attacks. I remember Dan Rather saying "You will remember this day as long as you shall live. You'll tell your kids, your grandkids, all your family members."

I think about how a lot of you on here were alive when JFK was assassinated. You can likely recall what you were doing on that day when it happened. September 11, 2001 holds that same significance with me.

It was a sunny and mild day typical for early September. I had started making plans with a couple of friends for the weekend and life was going on as usual. FMD was 7 months pregnant with Emily and we were looking ahead to our weekly childbirth class at the local hospital. I was on break at work sitting out in my car listening to the radio as I usually did.

Then, the world stopped.

The regular radio program was interrupted by news that the World Trade Center had been hit in New York. They then interrupted the report to say the Pentagon had been hit. My thoughts were "Oh no, what's next?"

We watched a little bit of the news at work in the break room. The President had by this time grounded all fights and it felt like an eerie calm outside the warehouse. We had no idea what was about to happen. FMD got to leave work early and later that evening rumors started going around that gas was about to shoot to $3/gallon that night. We sat in line with every other Vienna resident and filled up both cars for the bargain price of $1.54/gallon.

It was indeed a scary time in our lives. It's weird thinking about how Emily will hear all about it constantly since she was born just two months later. Her and her Cousin were born into two different worlds. Her cousin was born 9/5/01.

Getting the opportunity to visit New York city in the Spring of 2013 and seeing the new World Trade Center being built brings a bit of pride to one. Knowing that as Charlie Daniels once said, "This Lady may have stumbled, but she ain't never fell." And that new building is a testament to that.

Often we badmouth and complain about this country and what goes on here, but if it wasn't for people defending us for generations, we wouldn't have that right. Seeing us rise above those attacks, can't help but make one swell with pride for this country.

And I couldn't think of another place I'd rather live.

Good Morning acting manager Justin,

Stay tuned for my Thursday C&P. It wasn't planned this way, but it sure fits with your current theme.

Was sorry to read you weren't feeling well, but the good news is that you recuperated after a short sleep.

Good morning Justin!

Those lobsters averaged 1.25 lb. How much were they? Liked your mom made Stroganoff and you made stuffed shells. Both are faves.

Like that you visited your grandmother and she was feeling well and could enjoy your visit. Also enjoyed reading of your first Sunday as the store mgr. Congratulations!

Nice that you witnessed the pig sty. Always worth a smile and is pleasing to one's soul. ; )

Sad that you did not feel well when you went to visit Ian. Great a nap made you feel better.

One would think a financially secure university like Valparaiso would spend the money and create drainage for the worst conditions. With over 4,000 students from over 50 countries paying tuition, they can afford the fix. Just read their Endowment is $178 million. (2013)

Had a smashing time early in the morning playing as the Terran forces defeating the Zerg and the Protoss during a war in space. Lots of joy and fantastic entertainment in the real time strategy game Starcraft. (2:07 min)

Watched a Law and Order: SVU epi, then "Criminal Minds." Rec'd a phone call from the Oral Surgeon's Office. They acknowledged my Ins Co will pay the cost of surgery.

Still unhappy, as that office could have settled the matter early last week or even the week before and last Thursday's oral surgery appointment kept. They are the only game in the area that is less than a one hour drive. Monday, Sept 29th is the makeup surgery.

Did my laundry, then made pork chops for lunch. Enjoyed walking thru the gardens performing maintenance and dreaming of expansion next year. See that much of the daylilies, ferns, and brackens are yellow and some are brown.

The fall vivid colors will peak in the northern NH mtns in just a week or two weeks. Lots of rain and cold weather increases the intensity of the reds, oranges, and yellows. Here is the foliage tracker for each NH region.

Voted at the Town Hall yesterday. It was the NH Primary.

Hi Justin- That is one beautiful lobster! My mouth is drooling. How were they priced and did they sell out fast?

How is your mom holding up with the 8 hour shifts?
