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

Happy Thursday! 41 degrees this morning.

Early morning meeting so I'm in early and will son be on the road (outside of the carpool). Here's hoping traffic shines favorably on my commute.

Mick - please accept our condolences.

Doc - Yeah, I've also been through that drill - he finally moved me to Crestor every other day. It seems to significantly lessen the cramps. I also take Zetia and my numbers have stayed down...

MadDog - re: GB mobile app - mine works most of the time. I like the newest interface and functionality.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

Sorry to hear about your loss MickDiesel.

Docputer,

My Garmin programs have been giving me notice that since MicroSoft is abandoning XP, they will abandon allowing me to use XP to continue their "lifetime map and traffic" updates. Guess who's abandoning Garmin?

Started out to be a pretty good day today, but by 5:00 pm it had deteriorated into a very sad day. My oldest male friend, a friend of over 66 years passed away 2 days ago, after sending me his gold coin collection to repay a loan of much less value I had made to him.

I knew as soon as I opened the package that something was amiss. His sister-in-law called me shortly thereafter to break th news that he was in serouus financial straits and couldn't bear the burden any longer. If only I had been more aware of the seriousness of his situation, I could have done something to change his mind. I guess it wasn't meant to be and I will miss him for all the years.

G'night, all.

Good evening! Doc, it isn't that cold really, it's just the timing that is getting a bit much. And the furnace really should be on right now, but I refuse to pay for any more heating now! If it's as cool tomorrow I'll cook kidney beans and maybe do some baking.

Blo, Doc Zinn says 160/70 won't do, so tomorrow (when my pharmacy gets the stuff in) I'll start back on the generic Avapro/HCL I was taking until I ran out and decided I didn't really need it, anyway. Now the trouble is my back has been giving me so much trouble I can't go to the fitness center and I've been gaining weight again. He did say my cholesterol isn't too bad, even though I've been forgetting to take my "red yeast rice" pills. The Zetia is pretty good stuff. I'm glad that's at least okay. I just flat WILL NOT take anymore "statins." He's tried me on ALL of them, and every one gives he horrible cramps.

Oh, well...enough doctor stuff. It was colder'n a well-digger's butt in Arkansas here again this morning. I REALLY am glad I don't live in YankeeLand...couldn't take it. I like TV snow, but that'll do me.

Thanks for stopping by, Blo. Always good to "see" you.

Later, all....gotta go do a chore.

Well, all our new Sn** melted the next day, thank goodness. That sure was depressing to see after a couple of weeks of spring. Joe, I hear ya on that eclipse. The night after, the skies were clear as a bell. We are supposed to have another chance in October, so we'll see.

How's the ticker, Doc?

Yep, came close to freezing again last night. Then this morning I couldn't get on GB at All using my main 'puter, but this laptop popped it right up. Dunno what's going on, but right now I have the main computer loading the new Win8.1 update 1, since I hear MicroFlake is "abandoning" 8.1.

Wow...sure taking a while to download that update! Looks to be more of a complete revamp than an update.

Later...gotta get this finished, then get to Doc Zinn's place by noon.

Happy Wednesday! 34 degrees this morning.

Our concert went very well last night; we played to a full house. This is our last concert of this season and will start back up in the fall.

I worked from home yesterday morning and had a scheduled in-person meeting cancelled yesterday afternoon so I was able to telework for the entire day. It was nice to stay out of the cold and wind!

Off to breakfast and work.

Have a great day all!

Near freeze, Doc? It's mid winter all over again here! The snow is coming down sideways and heavy. Because it was 66 earlier today, it's stuck to the side of buildings and at least two inches on the ground. It's like awakening from a bad dream and finding out it's not a dream. Somebody pinch me.

Oh, well, didn't work out....lotsa things seem not to work out nowadays.....most things, in fact....<<<SIGH!>>>

Good morning everyone,

I don't find lunar eclipses to be all that interesting. Back in high school I got to see one through the school's 12" telescope. It wasn't worth the effort - without shadows you don't see much detail on the moon.

I watched the lunar eclipse tonight and saw the blood moon. I will not have any trouble sleeping now.

It was very peaceful and awe-inspiring--just God, me, and the blood moon. I really felt His presence here tonight.

Got boomers and rain this morning. Not sure I'll make it to cholesterol testing. Don't like driving in this kind of weather.

Psyd, when you do talk to him, just talk about the Yankees and coyotes and mallards and stuff like that there. Don't mention The Present Resident.

Happy Monday! 64 degrees this morning and rain forecasted.

Re: BLM/Bundy - it made the AJC (Atlanta newspaper) but I don't recall seeing much on the news (of course, I haven't been around during the newshour so haven't watched much).

Geez - Congrats to your hockey team!

The GSU softball team completed their sweep yesterday with a 3-2 win; the baseball team result was the polar opposite (losing the series).

I forgot to post about the Capt. Herb Emory's passing on Saturday; what a shame!

So Kevin Ware (formerly of Louisville) is apparently coming to GSU. This has the potential to be very good for the Panthers. He's certainly talented and can possibly add to the existing talent base. One hopes the chemistry will be good; in this day and age, one never knows until the team gets together. He has petitioned to play right away; if the NCAA disapproves the request, he'll have to sit out a year before he can play.

Off to breakfast and work.

Have a great day all!

That's the way I look at it.

That would be the perfect place to manage land. Contaminated soil and Democrats.

I sure wish I'd been close enough and young enough to have been there. THAT was truly momentous stuff. Fox News DID report it, but I have no idea if any of the others, such as Communist News Network, did or not, because I rarely even check in on them. Their people mostly give me the raging Shiites.

ANYway, I wish you all a good night. I'm gonna try to sleep so I can get up fairly early to go for cholesterol testing in prep for a cardiology clinic visit.

It's on the internet, Wacko. The Cowboys done made the BLM back off. They WERE ready for some shooting, and it came VERY close. That's why it isn't on the news.
