Stop in and meet ohyeah, a funny lady from Raleigh, who really needs her own home here. After the miles she's accumulated zooming thru GB on a daily basis, she really needs a place to put her feet up and relax. Welcome to your new home, ohyeah!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Finally caught up in my yard work! Now sitting with the heating pad as my back is still a bit unhappy. Better, but unhappy. Now I can let the yard be "there" for a few days. I do have a few other things to do inside that can be back friendly.

Hope work is improving for you so you come home with some energy and desire to do other things.

Good morning ohyeah!

Watched an intense episode of "The Greatest Tank Battles in History". In October of 1973 Syria launched a sneak attack on Israel in the Golan Heights.

A few outnumbered tanks manage to hold off an invasion of overwhelming size in one of the greatest tank battles ever waged. On streaming Netflix. 5/5 stars.

Got to read the May issue of Outdoor Photography that has the annual Landscape Special. Lots of action shots in sports, travel, wildlife and scenery.

Went out at 10 AM to perform lots of garden maintenance. The rain we had, 1.43 inches in 24 hours and 5.88 for the month grew the lawn veggies flowers and the weeds.

Concentrated getting the weeds out. Also one of my beef steak tomato plants keeled over due to the extra weigh if rain. Needed to push the 5' wire cage in the soil deeper and prop out the sides w/wood.

Mowed the last half of the lawn. The soil was so saturated that at times my steps squeezed out water. The wheels sank nearly 1" in those areas as well. It was fun to cut it in temps of just 61° (16°). Truly a no sweat experience.

Finished the lawn just in time for the Recycle Center to open at its noon to 5 PM time on Tuesdays. Brought the glass, tin cans, mags, paper and a collapsed metal chair to the transfer station.

Returned home instead of going to town and spending money. Watched the pilot show of the first Star Trek from 1966. Did not know Majel Barrett, the voice of all the computers in the 4 separate series, Lwaxana Troi in The Next Generation and the wife of series creator Gene Roddenberry in real life and Leonard Nimoy were the only two of the original cast in episode 1. Am a Trekker, all of them, from Day 1.

Civil twilight is 4:57 AM EDT. Night is 8:47 PM.

Sunrise: 5:30 AM. Set: 8:13 PM.

Length of day: 14h 43m. Length of visible light: 15h 50m. Tomorrow will be 2m 19s shorter.

The temp is 49° (9°C) with the high to be 73° (23°C) in beautiful clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Had very light, yet steady rain in the wee hours yesterday morning. At 8:15 AM the moderate rain arrived. Soon after the t-boomers started. Closed up and saved my work, shut the computer down, then unplugged the electricity to the pc and the modem. Also disconnected the phone line from the modem.

Decided to head back to Whitefield. Wanted to see if all my medical records were send from the former clinic. Had asked two weeks ago for some previous years lab results. They were waiting for me at the reception desk.

Stopped at that town's Subway for a breaky combo. $3 for a white egg, bacon (or ham) cheese and all the veggies. A 16 oz coffee is included. While inside the sky opened up and quarter dollar sized rain drops bounced off the pavement.

A wave of water poured down the paved road nearby. Could see a brook two inches deep flowing. Vehicles slowed down. Think the drivers all were worried about slipped down that road.

Visited my pal the meat mgr.When he came out of the meat cutting room He was asked by me, "How's your osmolarity?" He looked, squinted, and said How's my what?

Explained osmolarity is used to determine certain medical conditions, like the dissolved particles in urine. Read that on my newly rec'd Lab results and wanted to have fun.

Bought another pkg of the three fish cakes with potato as a filler. Liked it and it was also fully cooked in the cold case.The price was exceptionally low.

This store has fabulous low meat and fish prices, in general. Compared to our high priced Shaw's.

It rained steady mostly moderate from 8:15 until 2 PM. Then it rained lightly, finally stopping at 2:30. We rec'd 1.72 yesterday and so far 4.54" for the month. The sky became bright, saw blue patches, then the sun returned. Mostly cloudy this morning, then becoming partly sunny.

Civil twilight is 4:56 AM EDT. Night is 8:48 PM.

Sunrise: 5:29 AM. Set: 8:15 PM.

Length of day: 14h 45m. Length of visible light: 15h 52m. Tomorrow will be 2m 16s shorter.

The temp is 57° (14°C) with the high to be 70° (21°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Have a wonderful day!

Good evening ohyeah

Got a link to pass along to you in regards to last night's storm. The report deals with the New Martinsville area that got hit. The Valley Towing that you'll see I pass by going to and from work every day. It got the roof ripped off of it. The news story runs about a minute. The National Weather Service is calling it straight line winds and not a tornado. Other's involved disagree.

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Well, a Tornado warning is NOT the way to start the day! Looks like one hit about 5-7 miles south of me. The storm tracked right up over me after, but we only had heavy, heavy rain. Watching the reports on TV now of the damage. The news helicopters are busy finding the damage. This just in! NWS has CONFIRMED a tornado. And to think that storm went right over me a few minutes later. Boy am I lucky! Whew!

Good morning ohyeah!

Yes, you beat the green bean price nicely.

Went out early yesterday morning to harvest strawberries and some blueberries. Have enough for about two meals. Probably will be the fruit in 1% milk and with cereal. Got the berries before the birds did.

Checked out all the plants, flowers and the wildflower areas. All is growing well w/o slugs or rabbits having a free buffet. Covered the 1 lb cottage cheese containers the ammonia and my scent is in.

This is working well. The third day w/o the annual flowers being eaten by rabbits. Also read a 3 ft piece of a used garden hose as a fake snake is another good rabbit deterrent. Hope to find a used hose at the transfer station sometime soon.

Drove to visit my pal the meat mgr at Mac's Market in Whitefield. Haven't seen him in a few weeks. Bought some Shooner 2.5" fish cakes made of three types of fish and potato as a filler. No MSG on the label and a swell $1.99 a pound.

Asked he how Shaws can sell Split boneless chicken breast and bone in pork sirloin cutlets for $1.49 a lb for both this week. He said his cost is $1.60.

Then Shaw's is truly selling both as a loss leader, hoping other products are bought while its customers are in the store. Stopped in Shaws to buy a pkg of of the split chicken breasts.

Looking forward to cooking them in the crock pot soon w/lots of veggies. Stopped at the Main St field where the Civil War re enactment soldiers spent the night in their tents. Will have photos to share in a day or so.

Had a nice big healthy spinach, green leaf lettuce salad, along w/many different veggies w/chunks of ham and cheese along w/ two of the fish patties. They are about the thickness and size of a wide mouth Nalgene bottle. No chemicals in them that made me want to eat more.

Had two hours of rain late morning. Forecast is for scattered thunderstorms during the night into late morning. Nothing arrived as this was typed.

Listened to the home team play the Seattle Mariners w/the windows and doors open in a fabulous 71° (21°C) w/a 3-12 mph (4-19 kmph) breeze. Nice to avoid the other half of the lawn that needs to be mowed due to it being soaked.

Civil twilight is 4:54 AM EDT. Night is 8:49 PM.

Sunrise: 5:28 AM. Set: 8:16 PM.

Length of day: 14h 47m. Length of visible light: 15h 55m. Tomorrow will be 2m 14s shorter.

The temp is 59° (15°C) with the high to be 72° (22°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Have a pleasant day!

Good evening ohyeah

If you do get a chance, check out the videos I posted over at FB. You'll enjoy them.

Back to start the work week. Storms are rumbling through the area. New Martinsville got the worst of the storms getting high wind and hail. Driving through the area on the way into work tonight and half the town is without power. What I'd heard so far is that no one was seriously hurt. One business got the roof ripped off of them and a few trees were uprooted. Tornado watch is still in effect for us until 3 AM.

Saturday went very well for Emily and I. If your friends with me on facebook, you seen the two videos of her hitting the golf ball at the driving range and sinking a three pointer on the basketball court. Where were these when she was actually playing, I have no clue.

Time to get this week started. Weekend officially over for me. C Ya

Good Morning ohyeah,
So good to see you back. I hope you are enjoying your weekend off from Khols.

You all know about Random Acts of Kindness. That's what comes to mind as I viewed today's movie. It comes from the website entitled, Thaigoodstories.com - Believe in good.
The video starts right in without an introduction so be ready.

May your day be blessed!

Good morning ohyeah!

Completed the last of the forms from TIAA CREF. Am thinking the paperwork is finally completed, ending of this book, the final page is completed.

Went out to see a rabbit running away from my tomato plants. Rabbits are not fond on tomatoes, yet if they are hungry they will eat anything green. Or at least taste test it.

The containers of ammonia and my scent around the annuals, perennials, and wildflowers are working great. No nibbing or plant loss is seen. Like this method, except in rainy weather. Read mothballs work also and the rain does not dissolve them.

Watered all the plants, flowers, new lawn and wildflowers. Saw the newest wildflower seeds are germinating fabulously. At 10AM jumped into the Dart and took a drive to downtown Lancaster.

Mailed the letter to TIAA CREF, then saw the downtown Street Fair was beginning. Parked in the motel lot beside the P.O. Took my camera and saw the field across the St on US Rt3 had 100's of people.

It was a Civil War reenactment of 2 dozen men w/genuine uniforms, muskets, and cannons. Tents of the era were set up as well as the style of cooking pots and pans on several fires.

The drums beat, the lieutenant shouted, "Fire!" Muskets filled the air with smoke. The order "Fire at will," was commanded. There were two 3" (76.2 mm) cannons. None were fired.

The Main St was jammed with vehicles, in fact it was the first time seeing stop and go traffic. Vendors lined both sides with their merchandise along with booths selling fried dough to lobster rolls.

Our visitor's Center held the antique, muscle, and classic car show. 100's, if not a thousand folks were enjoying the fabulous 73° (23°C) sunshine in nearly clear skies.

One fellow had a giant pure black and shiny Newfoundlander that was handsome. There was a civilian owned Army store that sold equipment, rations, and supplies that would follow the troops.

A pair of leather Army boots just below the knee were $15 in those days. A private in 1860 was paid $13 a month. It was raised in June 1864, when soldiers rec'd $16 a month.Civil twilight is 4:53 AM EDT. Night is 8:51 PM.

Sunrise: 5:27 AM. Set: 8:17 PM.

Length of day: 14h 49m. Length of visible light: 15h 57m. Tomorrow will be 2m 12s shorter.

The temp is 60° (15°C) with the high to be 74° (23°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: I know what you mean about those lights. Hate 'em too. Just glad they do not end up as a painful migraine. Glad you like the new car. I do have the Navigation system. If I have someone in my phone and have them in with their address, I can pull that up with the Nav system and have it take me there. I have "projector" beam lights, but they are standard halogen, not the arc lights you have. Mine work pretty well though. Might look at putting a better grade of light bulb into mine. I used to use the Sylvania Silverstar Ultra's in my last vehicle. They were brighter than standard bulbs. Want to see if they make them for my new one too.
Glad you have a weekend off. Not surprised you will spend it at the pool, that sounds HOT. We have dew points in the low 60's today and temps will be in the mid 80's. Going to see if I can get some garden maintenance completed.

Good Morning, Everyone!

STEELER TRAINING CAMP started YESTERDAY!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Football season is right around the corner!!!!

Thanks for stopping this week. It was a very LONG one for me. Since I am now working Kohl's just every other weekend, this is my weekend off! It's gross outside. I took the dog for a walk when he woke me up. It's humid, cloudy and rather dark. I do hope the sun comes out soon! I will be going to the pool today... I HOPE!!! They are calling for a high of 93 today and 97 tomorrow. I'm going to park my butt on the ledge in the water! LOL

The girls are still haggling over the autumn weekend at Myrtle Beach. I think we are shooting for the first weekend in October. We will either be heading back to the Sandy Beach (http://www.sandybeachoceanfrontresort.com/) or going to Ocean's One (http://www.oceansoneresort.com/). The are right next door to each other! I'm really really REALLY looking forward to the beach! :-)

dickc... I HATE those lights moving before my eyes! UGH We have had an up and down summer temp wise, dickc... The average daily high is 90 right now... Next week we will be back in the 80s with possible lows in the upper 50s!!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE As far as electronics... I didn't get the navigation system. I do have XM... there are 2 FM screens with a total of 12 presets, 1 AM with 6 presets... sorry but I really don't use AM! And, 3 XM with a total of 18 presets! It is touchscreen. My old Elantra and this one both had bluetooth. Once again it is touch screen to operate it or you can speak your commands! I also get the monthly updates as to my car's performance through my phone and I have it emailed to me. :-) Pretty Neat!

MidnightSun... Your new hospital sounds like it is lovely! I was actually over at Duke Hospital yesterday. It's 13 miles from my building! But, alas, I was only in the basement of the hospital! LOL I do know that there is a waterfall in the Children's Hospital lobby! One more thing... I beat you on the GREEN BEAN prices!!! They're $ .99 a pound here this week! :-)

TT... thank you VERY MUCH for the "Welcome to..." photos! I love coming home and seeing beautiful pictures/photos! :-)

I hope you and Emily have a GREAT day today, Dino!!!! :-)

Hi EBR!!! The new car "Bright Eyes" is doing great! LOL I finally drove her at night last night. Boy, those LED lights really do make a difference seeing at night! Jordan finally admitted that car is really a lot nicer than the old Elantra and that she LOVES the wheel covers just like me! They are really really cool looking!

Scanman... never thought you said you didn't think I got a really good deal! :-) But, thanks for clarifying!

And last but not least, HIYA HANDSOME!!! Thanks for the almost daily history updates! :-)

See Ya All tomorrow... I hope!

Stopping in for a rare (for me) Friday night. Not from work but from the cozy confines of Home Sweet Home. Fixed some red beans and rice for dinner and enjoyed the likes of the TV shows Shark Tank, Brain Games, and Pawn Stars. Heading to Parkersburg in the morning to get Emily for the afternoon. Will probably do lunch and who knows from there. Temps expected in the low 80s. See ya Sunday night.

Wish it would stay that low all summer. Going to go out and work in the yard today as a result. Will see what my back lets me get done. Its been bothering me more lately. Going to the docs Aug 6 and will ask why.

Good morning oh yeah!

Loved the low of 59° (15°C) Wednesday night. Had the windows open all night and the front door open part way. A ceiling fan in my bdrm cranked in the cool air from outdoors. Temp indoors dropping to 64° (18°C), perfect for my house plants.

Left early and took the fireroad the last half of the journey to Littleton. Bought were lemons 2/$1, limes 4/$1, giant heads of green lettuce $1.18 ea, avocados 98¢ ea, green bean $1.38 a lb, bing cherries $2.49 a lb, 40 cukes ¢ ea, and baby bella 10 oz for $2.25

Passed on grapes at $2.38 a lb. Mainly as lots are left over from last week. The bags are big at 2.5-3 lbs. Will only buy 1-1.5 lbs in the future.

Returned home to put the produce away. Then checked all the plants for damage from the t-storm the early evening before. No plants or even the flowers were damaged.

Mowed the lawn in the most pleasant conditions. Finished half of the 1.5 acres. Humidity was 48% w/the dew point a gentle 52° (11°C). In fact it was a superb day w/the high a pleasing 73° (23°C) and the wind 4-8 mph (6.5-13 kph).

Drove to the P.O.for the first time this week. In the mail was the requested Zio Heart Monitor results and a letter from my PCP dated 4 days ago. My heart randomly goes fast for brief intervals with a condition know as Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Will talk to the doc about it during my appointment in 1 week. Not worried at all.

The oral surgery was cancelled as the anesthesiologist can not work next week. It was scheduled for Wedhe 30th at 8 AM. This will also delay my hip surgery for another month. Am disappointed in the continuing delay.

Civil twilight is 4:51 AM EDT. Night is 8:53 PM.

Sunrise: 5:25 AM. Set: 8:19 PM.

Length of day: 14h 54m. Length of visible light: 16h 02m. Tomorrow will be 2m 02s shorter.

The temp is 46° (16°C) with the high to be 78° (24°C) in clear skies.

Have a delightful day!

Time now for Dino's Jukebox. This week's selection comes in mind with the birthday girl in mind as this is one of Mrs. K's favorite groups. It's been one of mine for a long time as well dating back to the late 1980s.

They got their start practicing in an old warehouse in Sheffield, England releasing their first EP in 1979 selling a modest number of copies. They would refine their sound and go through a few lineup changes through the early '80s releasing three more albums. Tragedy struck the band when their drummer lost his arm in a car accident New Year's Eve 1984. When they thought they'd need to find another drummer, Rick Allen said since he couldn't play with his left arm, but could play with his left foot. If you see them in concert, you'll see a one armed drummer with a specially designed drum kit he plays with his feet. And he plays it well.

When we got into the 1990s, the rock scene was changing direction and the band did the same thing turning to alternative styles of music as opposed to the powerful arena pop rock sound they embraced throughout the 1980s which brings up tonight's jukebox selection. You'll find this song on their 1994 release Retro Active and has a mellow sound to it hopefully will enjoy.

Good morning ohyeah!

Went outdoors at 7:45 AM to dig up the final bare section where the former wild blackberries grew. Naturally with removing all roots, rocks and soil never loosened before, it was a job that took longer than expected.

The pitchfork did the heavy work, then the steel rake did the fine turning. Hand broadcast the wildflower seed, added some composted dry manure over the seed, then used the back side of the yard rake to wiggle soil over the seed.

Added some water to soak that area, newsprint was laid over, then the newspaper was drenched. Added some small roots to hold the print down. Saw the seed planted beside this area 2-3 days ago is germinating wonderfully. Went to the bare spot the grouse dug in the first wildflower area.

My liquid scent the day before did a fabulous job of keep it from returning. Scraped up that 18" circular area with the yard rake, seeded it, then also eased the soil over the seed. Watered, covered it, watered the print, then added some stones to prevent the wind from moving it.

Watered the remaining plants and new spots in the lawn. Sweat soaked my t-shirt and rolled down my back and head. Worked 2.5 hours in the gardens. By 10:15 the temp had climbed to 81°, the humidity was 69%, with the dew point a nasty 68°. The high of the day was 87°.

By 1 PM heavy rain and t-storms let loose some miles north of me. Lots of yellow and plenty of red on the radar map indicated a very severe storm. Cold air arrived north of me. Temp dropped to 66°.

The clouds made the sky very dark. Then the wind arrived. Had 2 hours of thunderstorms, no hail, with large raindrops the size of quarters late afternoon into the evening. No power outages in my area

Civil twilight is 4:50 AM EDT. Night is 8:54 PM.

Sunrise: 5:24 AM. Set: 8:20 PM.

Length of day: 14h 55m. Length of visible light: 16h 04m. Tomorrow will be 2m 3s shorter.

The temp is 62° (17°C) with the high to be 76° (24°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Off to the market to find deals and for some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Aren't Ocular migraines fun? I get them too. Have for years. Almost all of them end without turning into a regular migraine. Its only the odd one that does. What new electronics does your new car come with? My new truck has AM-FM-XM radio. It also has navigation, and a weather application that works through the XM radio. I can get a radar map right on the center screen of the truck! I can also monitor much of what is going on with the vehicle. Lastly, it syncs with my cell phone so it knows my address book. If I make a change, it updates the next time I get in. So much has advanced in the 12 years since I last had a new vehicle!

We are going to have a real hot one today. Dew points will be near or above 70, and temps over 90. Super UGH. It might not be too bad a day to be out on a boat, or at least on a beach somewhere.

Good morning ohyeah!

No pain and no discomfort. Eye doc says some see a kaleidoscope.

Went out at 8 AM yesterday to water all the plants, enjoy the sun rising over the forest, and the splendid new day. Near the road the smaller of the two patches of wildflowers had a 16" circle bared to the ground.

A grouse feather remained as evidence of what dug into the already soft hand tilled soil and spent the night.

Added some repellent to the area, reseeded it, watered the brushed in soil, covered it w/newsprint, and watered the soil. Will see if the deer and rabbit repellent along w/a human smell added to the ground will keep the pesky critter off my wildflowers.

Got ready for my 11 AM diabetes orientation visit and left right away north of Lancaster to the lovely Town Of Groveton. The Medical Center was real easy to find as it is two doors down from the Fire Station.

Was taken into the office minutes after may arrival, escorted to an exam room by a nurse which took my vitals. This day my pulse was 74 w/my BP at 139 over 78.

My weight was an entire 1 pound down from two weeks earlier. Now down 5 lbs since March. The Doc came in and introduced herself w/a smile. Again by her first name. Really like the friendliness.

Did let her talk for some minutes. When she began to explain the basics of carbs calories and sugar intake, she was stopped. Let her know the basic when well known and to get right into the nitty gritty of our meet.

She explained my pancreas is producing plenty of insulin yet my cells, all of the were rejecting this. Elaborated how my hip cartilage wore down to the bone and hiking, 40 miles (64 km) each week w/10-15,000 ft (3000- 4,800 km) of elevation each week had to stop.

Further explained my new thirst and desire for apple, blueberry, egg custard pie w/ice cream, and lemonade (sugar) along with my habit of bread, pasta, rice, and pizza (carbs).

She did a meal by meal in depth analysis of my typical meals for a week. She calculated that of the target of 200 grams of carbs ea day, my highest is 195 w/my lowest being 180 grams. That is how my weight has dropped nice and slow at 1 lb per month.

She was thrilled that my snacks are mainly avocados and grapes and my use of cinnamon (Decreases Blood Sugar, lowers LDL cholesterol) is substantial. The 10 benefits of cinnamon (a quick read list) has been known for over two thousand years.

In the summary of yesterday's visit the doc wrote: "Patient is quite knowledgeable in nutrition, had given up a lot of carbs, and sugar which is reflected in his 5 lb weight loss."

Know by lowering carbs and all sugar intake my weight will continue to see pounds lost. She gave a goal of losing 11 more lbs. In this manner no meds will be needed to control the borderlin diabeties. Happy to be healthy.

Civil twilight is 4:48 AM EDT. Night is 8:55 PM.

Sunrise: 5:23 AM. Set: 8:21 PM.

Length of day: 14h 58m. Length of visible light: 16h 07m. Tomorrow will be 2m 2s shorter.

The temp is 63° (17°C) with the high to be 86° (30°C). Rain is in the forecast for this afternoon along w/a t-banger.

"Thunderstorms may be severe with damaging winds...large hail...heavy rainfall and frequent lightning." -wunderground.com. Just like a real storm.

Have a fabulous day!

Good Afternoon, MT, MidnightSun, Dino, senile, TUrtLE, dickc, and Handsome!

Today was a BUSY day at work! UGH... :-( I HATE days like today!

MT, I will try to stop more often... I now got to go downstairs and make dinner... another UGH!!!

MidnightSun... I get those ocular migraines! They're a pain in the butt but there is no pain.

Yes, Dino... another wonderful actor is gone... what a shame!

Hi senile! :-)

LOVE the Blue Heron photo, TT!!!

I'm sure my little red Hyundai will end up as a certified Used Car, dickc! I took good care of it! :-)

Hi Handsome! I hope the new car smell lasts for a long long time! LOL

Good morning ohyeah!

The low was 50° (15°C) yesterday. The windows were open all night with the house cooling off to a lovely 66° by 8 AM. Spent 90 minutes doing the laundry. Had a 6 inch white egg and bacon w/jack cheese and a 12oz coffee for $3.27 inc tax while in Littleton.

Stopped at Olympic Sports to exchange a printed t-shirt of the reigning World Series champs. Seems the thread in the right underarm was not fully stitched. No problem to exchange it for another.

Headed to the Physician Offices at the Littleton Regional Hospital for my 10:30 appointment. This new and modern hospital with the latest healthcare equipment greatly expanded on the east side and had to have a road relocated 1,000 ft from its original location.

Went to the Eye care unit. It looks fabulous w/a waterfall in the lobby that was 24' tall. Five tiers the water falls. Plants surround the base of the 14' pond. A fantastic indoor display.

Lots of beautiful photography framed 16"x 24" on the walls. Love the North Country hospitality. Everyone smiles and introduces themselves by their first names.

Arrived before time and filled out the typical 3 page form, which is routine and expected. Waited all of 5 minutes before a female tech called me inside the exam room.

Lots of Q's were asked by the tech and by me. All the wonderful eye tests were performed. Then the dilation drops were inserted.Can tell this tech is well qualified. She pulls down the skin beneath the eye. the drops were aimed and a bullseye was accurate.

After the drops took effect the good OD (eye doc) came in smiling, shook my hand and introduced himself, also by his first name. He tested for glaucoma, then tested retina pressure and looked inside the retina w/a magnifying lens and strong lighting.

He said my retina is perfect and has no signs of any problems in the future. No glaucoma either. Said my vision has superimposed jagged bright spots know as ocular migraine. (A quick 49 sec video of it starting and it seen at the max)

Asked while here about and eye vision exam. He said it would be a false reading w/my retinas being dilated. The desk gave me an appointment in three weeks.

Also given to me was a Rollens wrap around sun glasses. With my retinas dilated to the max, the bright sun was intolerable. This simple device filters out the UV rays superbly. Sat in the sun reading for an hour.

Returned home to water the gardens, the new lawn repairs, and the new germinating wildflowers. All is growing exceptionally well. A fantastic sight and a super happy feeling.

Civil twilight is 4:47 AM EDT. Night is 8:56 PM.

Sunrise: 5:22 AM. Set: 8:22 PM.

Length of day: 15h 0m. Length of visible light: 16h 09m. Tomorrow will be 2m 0s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C) with the high to be 86° (30°C). Two more sunny days ahead.

An appointment w/a diabetic specialist at Weeks Memorial Hospital on dieting to lower glucose levels is at 11AM.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Still bet you old car ends up as a certified pre-owned that earns the dealer a good sum of money. The bottom line is YOU are happy! I sure do know that smell of new leather. My new truck still has that smell, and will for some time to come. Its nice that the smell lingers for more than a few days. Used to work in a leather tannery. I know the smell of leather!

Looks like today is our last day of the cooler, drier air. Tomorrow the temps go up and so does the dew point. Ugh. Got to get my lawn mowed today before its too ugly outside to want to do it. Can always stay inside the next two or three days and do inside chores.

Good morning ohyeah

Congrats again on the new car.
Back after a weekend off of doing not much. Rain cancelled my plans to mow on Saturday. Got it done Sunday afternoon and the yard looks much better now. As you may know by now, we lost another great actor in James Garner. He was known for several movies and TV shows. However, I grew up in the '70s and I remember him as Jim Rockford. Never watched the show, but my parents did and the theme was what stood out to me. He will be missed

TV Theme from "The Rockford Files"

The heat returns to the area this week. After daytime temps in the 70s last week, we should be pushing 90 most of this week. Time to jump start the week. If it sounds weak, don't worry. It's just the lawn mower.

Good morning ohyeah!

The interior of your new Elantra Limited?!

Finished my Starcraft: Brood War battles early yesterday morning taking turns being a member of the terran, zerg, and protoss races. Lots of joy playing land, air and deep space battles.

Went out mid morning to look at the straw and blue berries. All is well. Plants wildflowers, and the repairs to the lawn are going very well. The new grass is 2" tall. Decided to remove its newsprint and water w/fertilizer.

Worked prying out the humongous rip rap in the now 2' x 6' hole. Using boulders for a basic lever & fulcrum. This riprap must be very deep, very heavy and very huge.

Could not even move it after 1 hour of solid effort. A new plan is to dug under it and have it collapse at least 3 inches below the lawn grade. Then plant the annuals bought for this area the beginning of July.

Dug up the roots and rocks in the final remaining section that contains the newly planted wildflower seeds. Added a new 4' x 5' extension w/a fine looking radius corner.

Have a mere 2' x 4' area to plant the remaining wildflowers. All is growing well. Harvested some strawberries and enough blueberries for a pleasing snack. Temp rose to 84° (29°C) for the high in clear skies.

Am listening to the K.C. Royal challenge the home team on the net. Home team leads it. Will return outdoors after this post to listen to the game and improve my tan.

Civil twilight is 4:46 AM EDT. Night is 8:58 PM.

Sunrise: 5:21 AM. Set: 8:23 PM.

Length of day: 15h 02m. Length of visible light: 16h 11m. Tomorrow will be 1m 56s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C) with the high to be 82° (28°C). Three more sunny days ahead.

Looks like a fine morning to get my laundry done. Have an eye exam scheduled for 10:30 at the Littleton Regional Hospital.

Have a pleasant day!

Good Evening, ohyeah ♫ You're welcome for the congrats on your brand new car! Blessings to you, your two beautiful Daughters, and all who will ride in it through the years, for safe travels and wonderful journeys ahead!

Thank you for the prayers regarding my difficult work situation. I am not yet unemployed, but am close to it with too few Students to teach and not enough Gigs in this recession. Now that I am caught up after our recent Church Camp vacation from July 10-13, I plan on dedicating this week to Job Searches.

If any or both of us can't keep in touch here on GB due to our busy lives, FB is another great way to keep up with some of my updates. Most of my posted FB updates are pictures. I also see some of your updates on FB too. I will also try to stop in here occasionally as my time permits.

Wishing you a great week of work! {{{{Hugs}}}}

Good Night!

Good Evening, Scanman, MT, MidnightSun, Handsome, TT and TC!

Thank you all very very much for the congrats on the new car! It really is a lot of fun to drive and I LOVE the smell of the leather! :-)

MidnightSun had already requested a photo or two of the car. I will try to get those out in the next couple of days!

$29 a month and that includes the payoff coverage if I were to total it or someone hits me and totals it before I'm not upside down, ScanMan! I REALLY did get a great deal! :-)

I will keep you in my prayers, MT. I will also try to stop in a little more frequently. :-)

Sounds like you had a GREAT day today, Midnight! Blueberries... YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Don't think I ever knew that Sitting Bull surrendered, Handsome! LOL

Beautiful photos, paintings and pictures of the sea in the movie of the week, TT!

Hello TC!!!! :-)



Have a good evening and a better week!

Good Morning ohyeah,
Congrats on your new car.

Your Sunday Movie is, Ready For The Storm, based on a song by the same name which was written and performed by Rich Mullins, a Christian Rock singer from the eighties and the nineties, according to Steve Politte.

There is no text except the final frame so you can listen to the words and watch the graphics without having to read text.

I know you're going like this one.
Enjoy!

Good morning ohyeah!

Will join you in a happy dance. Understand on waiting for a sunny day to take a pic of your new car. A Hearty Congrats!

Yesterday saw another cool morning w/a low of 46° (8°C). The windows were opened at 6 AM for some fresh air an a blast of the mtn air to remain in the house all day. Readied my Dart with boxes of various recyclables for the Center.

The featured item this week was a heavy metal desk. This is tall enough to stand at and work. Even has a foot rest. Would imagine someone w/a giant basement and a pick up truck will take it home.

Decided to take a slow drive to Littleton. Expected the State Police to be riding the highways looking for speeders and such over the w/e. Stopped at Shaw's to get in on their weekly sale.

Bought broccoli crowns for 88¢ a lb. It is never that low in these parts. The lowest price in 10 years. Also bought 4 pints of blueberries for $1.50 a pint. Passed on cooked shrimp for $6.99 for a 14 oz bag. Have a dozen in stock.

Stopped back at Big Papa's Fruit and Produce. New price list & 'toons.

Got a deal on avocados that dropped to 88¢ a lb from $1.25 on Thursday. Bought 2¼ lbs of sweet potatoes for just $1. What a deal. Went to visit my pal at Rite Aid. Found he is on a 10 day vacay.

Summer traffic has arrived in Littleton. Needed to pull into a parking lot to turn back. There was a ¼ mile line held up at the 2nd US Rt 302 east light for peeps headed to the big box stores.

Banged a U'ie and returned home via the CT River Hwy. Managed to shop, stay out, and cruise the Blvd's for 3 hours. Returned home to put the produce away then sit in a chair in the sun and read. The high was a dry 78° (26°C) in nearly clear skies.

Civil twilight is 4:45 AM EDT. Night is 8:59 PM.

Sunrise: 5:20 AM. Set: 8:24 PM.

Length of day: 15h 03m. Length of visible light: 16h 13m. Tomorrow will be 1m 54s shorter.

The temp is 59° (15°C) with the high to be 75° (24°C). Further sunny days ahead.

Have a splendid day!

Good Evening, Ohyeah ♩ Congratulations on the excellent trade-in deal on your previous Hyundai Elantra to a much better Hyundai Elantra for only a small increase in your monthly payments! I am so happy for you! I wish we could see a picture of your brand new Hyundai Elantra. I pray that this car will give you and those who will ride in it, many years of safe and reliable travels. God bless you and your two Daughters!

This past April 22nd, we traded in our 2004 BMW 325i Station Wagon for this new used 2005 Honda CR-V! Here is a picture of me at the dealership after the deal was done. We got a bigger vehicle this time around because we do road trips and it is so much easier to travel as a family with a bigger cargo space for our luggage and things.

Take care, and please keep in touch with stopovers, even if brief messages at my Studio, whenever you have a chance. I understand work and family keeps you busy. I have been very busy too, but like you in the past, unfortunately my Music Teaching and Performance biz has taken a huge hit in this recession with fewer Students to teaching, fewer Gigs to perform at, and reduced income, which has forced me to go into active job searches. Please pray for me as I seek out the right career #2. It is so difficult to land any job in this recession. Due to my priorities going towards looking for a career #2 and/or finding ways to gain more new Students, I have limited most of my GB rounds to those who visit my Studio and post messages.

Take care and God bless you and yours! {{{{Hugs}}}}

Good afternoon Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Let me guess, you have had ALL of your service done at the same dealer. Your old Elantra had reasonably low miles. In other words, it was a prime candidate for them to use as a certified pre-owned vehicle that gets them top dollar. Couple that with larger than normal factory incentives right now and you can make that kind of move. Yes, you are now paying a new loan from the start so you have five years to pay, not the balance of two you had. The dealer made money and you are happy so I guess it works out OK.
Newer cars are coming with more stuff standard. My new 2014 Silverado has heated AND A/C'ed seats. Yup they cool your butt in the summer. Plus you will note that the new car has MUCH more capable electronics. It links to your cell phone more easily, and works better with it. The difference in how my wife's five year old Accord deals with a cell phone and how my Silverado deals with one are night and day. I also have a much easier to use navigation system than she does. Mine works with a touch screen, hers with a complicated knob input thing.

Glad you are happy with the new car. With the good job, and the weekend gig at Khol's, you should see about paying it off faster. Once paid for, you can then save that money for future things, like retirement.

Good Afternoon!

Well, last Saturday I decided to go and see what my Hyundai dealer was talking about... I have been getting emails and phone calls from the dealership... "We need your used Hyundai Elantra... Demand is HUGE... Bring it in and buy a new one!"

I took my little red Hyundai Elantra in and let them see what see what they could do. Now mind you, I have only had the car for 3 years and 17 days... I am in a brand new Elantra Limited (the old on was just a plain Elantra). It now has leather interior, 8 way power seats, heated seats, including the back seats (I guess they don't want my butt to get cold!), premium sound system, the coolest wheel covers, and lots lots more for (are you ready for this...) only $29 more per month!!! And, the length of the contract remained the same!!!! They gave me $2,000 OVER the buy out for my little red Hyundai!!!

I REALLY feel like I did well!!!! What do you think????


MidnightSun... I wish we had a Big Papa's Market and Shaw's down here!!!!!

Good morning ohyeah!

Left extra early yesterday morning for Littleton. So early, two 6 gallon (22.7 litres) jugs were filled w/spring water. You saw the kettle drum spring at the Littleton/Bethlehem town line in my new album under misc. May have to take a summertime view photo.

Bought at Big Papa's Market were giant heads of green leaf lettuce $1.18 ea, packham pears 4/$1, navel oranges 2/$1, tomatoes $1.44 a lb, limes 4/$1, 1 lb spinach $3, Driscoll 6 ozs raspberries $2, and jumbo eggs $2.25.

Went to WM for a few items. Then stopped at Shaw's. This store had 85% fat free ground beef for $1.99 a lb, a mgr's special. Got a big pkg. Made a burger at home. It is closer to 90% w/little pan grease.

Stopped to visit my pal at Rite Aid. It was his every other Thursday off plus he gets every other w/e off. Nice job to wear a tie everyday.

Worked at weeding and garden maintenance, then sat in the sun and read. Temp was a pleasing 73°F (23°C), humidity 52%, and a fabulous dew point of 52° (11°C). One fine way to spend the early afternoon in the sun.

Have a 9 AM appointment at the cardiologist for an Transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE). An echocardiogram (aka an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer.

The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.

My new Dr. is determined to get to the bottom of my heart palpitations. Looking forward to this test that should last about 1 hour. Will then have more blood drawn for more lab tests the good doctor wants.

Civil twilight is 4:43 AM EDT. Night is 9:01 PM.

Sunrise: 5:18 AM. Set: 8:26 PM.

Length of day: 15h 07m. Length of visible light: 16h 17m. Tomorrow will be 1m 47s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C) with the high to be 76° (24°C). More sunny days coming up.

Have a delightful day!
