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!

Crock pot cooked pork sirloin cutlets and green beans for 2.5 hours. Added sliced onions, yellow peppers, and broccoli to cook al dente for the final 30-40 minutes. All came out perfect.

Really liking the first season of "Criminal Minds". Many shows were missed in this intense story of FBI profilers. The scripts are right up my alley. A suspect is found which turns out to be someone else.

Took a pleasing cruise to Littleton early this morning. Wanted to speak to the female mgr of the local convenience store w/gas pumps. She does not work mornings. Wanted to ask her lots of Q's.

Stopped in WM for a few items and get some fat free cottage cheese. Stocking the shelves was a friend know for 20 years. He is past retirement age, yet will not.

Like so many others, he feels very uncomfortable about not working and remaining home. We swapped stories for nearly 30 minutes. He is the best stocker WM has. Not a chance it will be mentioned or he will even get a warning.

Met a fellow doing 35-40 mph in the 50 mph speed zone on the CT River Hwy. He continued to step on the brake. Sure is annoying. Downshifted into 3rd and hit the pedal to the metal.

The turbo kicked in instantly. What a sound of engine and exhaust acceleration and a rush of power. In 3 seconds the car was at 85 mph. Wild, raw excitement! Hand shifted into 6th, then reset the cruise control to 55.

Returned home to make some homemade pork fried rice with lots of veggies w/evoo and thick cooked sliced mushrooms. Had some of the midnight black grapes that were on sale.

Enjoying browsing in the gardens looking at the flowers and delight in the two new wildflower section of the seen 1" wide annuals that have blossomed. Think the seed was spread way to thick, like grass seed, not flowers ever ½ inch.

Watered to fruits and flowers. Pruned the tomatoes to speed up their ripening and remove the few remain suckers. Many are now seeing orange colors and should to turn red very soon.

Harvested a cup of blueberries. That is enough for a breaky w/cereal for up to 5 meals adding other berries. Temp reached a pleasant 83° (28°C) in clear skies w/low humidity and a dew point. Spent an hour relaxing in the sun reading.

Civil twilight is 5:32 AM EDT. Night is 8:01 PM.

Sunrise: 6:03 AM. Set: 7:31 PM.

Length of day: 14h 28m. Length of visible light: 15h 29m. Tomorrow will be 2m 56s shorter.

The temp is 64° (18°C), the high is to be 80° (27°C) in clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

The Free Gabby Douglas Story is here. On updated FF browsers a pop up window w/an ad will appear, plus a Playboy.tv ad. Using Chrome w/AdBlock plus deletes the ads. Movie is also on streaming Netflix. Or Free on putlocker.is using Chrome.

Enjoyed seeing a half dozen of the Gabby Douglas routines in the pre-Olympic's and her awesome gold medal performances in 2012 and earlier. No TV signals in the mtns will always mean a catching up with the times for me.

Then watch a nearly 20 y/a super middleweight boxing match between Roberto Duran and Vinny Pazienza I & II. Then watched Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Márquez I. Their first was a draw. There are three more matches to see on another occasion.

The low was 48° in the wee hours. It was nearly 55° when it was time to go outdoors. Wore just shorts and sneakers. Did two hours of garden maintenance.

Lots of dead flowers to trim off and leaves. Now that the sun is much lower above the treeline, want to give the newly planted perennials all the sun they can get to grow deep roots before the winter arrives.

Can see maple trees showing a hint of color. Other trees such as white and yellow birch are now showing leaves w/o chlorophyll. It the season for the change in autumn.

Vacuumed the Neon and the Dart. Used a portion of a can of foamy cleaner on the Dart's back seat. Cardboard box dust from going to the Transfer station built up on cloth.

For $4,000 more, black or white leather upholstery could have been selected. Was not at all worth the money to me. Used a light scrub brush to work the dust out of the pores and a towel to wipe up the foam. This worked well.

Watched three hummers in battle. One would fly into and bump another. Then the third would steal some nectar from the crocosmia. The winner of the first clash would attack the third. On and on the fray continued until they flew off into the forest.

Civil twilight is 5:31 AM EDT. Night is 8:08 PM.

Sunrise: 6:01 AM. Set: 7:33 PM.

Length of day: 14h 31m. Length of visible light: 15h 32m. Tomorrow will be 2m 54s shorter.

The temp is 59° (15°C), the high is to be 86° (30°C) in clear skies.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Had a pleasing combo of 3 fresh berries w/1% milk and wheat bran flakes for breaky at 3 AM. After my rounds had some fabulous laughs watching "Everybody Loves Raymond". Then settled down to watch "The Gabby Douglas Story" (2014) 1hr 26m PG-13.

This powerful inspirational story is the life of an 8 y/o girl that fell in love with gymnastics. A dream that got stronger with age. She saw a Chinese coach on TV, "The Coach of the Year" and wished to train in his gym 1,000 miles away, in Iowa.

Her mom got injured and could not pay the bills. Poor is only when one runs out of hope. Gabby was rich w/talent, had the desire to learn, lots of muscle strength, and gifted.

A host family from Iowa decides to take Gabby in for 2 years so she can train w/her beloved coach and his wife at their gym. The coach rebuilt her, trained her to do the impossible, so grace can join in on her skills, then propelled her to the Hall of Fame.

Along the way Gabby had several falls and lows. Sometimes the only way to get stronger is to get knocked down. Gabrielle even felt like quitting. Her mother visited her in Iowa and reminded her of the sacrifices made so she could pursue her dream.

The only thing worse than failing is quitting. She returned to the gym w/renewed determination. Her coach told her, "A champion is not made of muscle. It is made of heart."

Gabby Douglas performed w/the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She won gold medals in both the individual, all-around, and team competitions in each of the four gymnast events.

Gabrielle Douglas is the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion, the first American gymnast to win gold in both the individual, all-around, and team competitions at the same Olympics as well as being the only American all-around champion to win multiple gold medals.

She was also a member of the gold-winning U.S. team at the 2011 World Championships. Gabby reaches for the stars. A heartwarming film for the entire family that shows adversity may be conquered. My rating is a 6 on a scale of 5.

Top 10 best of the FREE movie sites. Two are Smartphone friendly. Six are in HD.

Did return to that Shaw's store to check the cod price. It is now $5.99 a lb for this week. ; )

Civil twilight is 5:30 AM EDT. Night is 8:05 PM.

Sunrise: 6:00 AM. Set: 7:35 PM.

Length of day: 14h 34m. Length of visible light: 15h 335m. Tomorrow will be 2m 54s shorter.

The temp is 59° (15°C), the high is to be 83° (28°C) in clear skies.

Have a pleasant day!

Good afternoon Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Well, Thursday, my older daughter had a civil ceremony to marry her long time boyfriend. They want a big wedding still so next year we will have that with a celebration of the wedding on its first anniversary. The driver of this was the fact that he ages off his mothers very good health care and would start to pay $550.00 per month for not so good health care. My daughter has a very good policy through her work, but they have to be married for him to be on it. So, a quick civil wedding. At least I got to give away the bride! I have some pictures up on my profile page. You need to be a buddy to see them so you should be OK.

Hope you are enjoying that new car smell still! My truck still smells wonderful.

Good morning ohyeah!

Woke up well before 1 AM yesterday and began my rounds. Sometime around 4 AM returned to sleep for 90 minutes. Felt so much better after the extra sleep.

My neighbor up the mtn has a son who visited me early in the morning. The cause being my outside hand pump failed. He turned the leather suction flap over and the Harvard pitcher pump was as good as new.

Asked him to take a look at my Neon. Connected the removed battery cable and he could not get it to turn over. Said he will ask some pro mechanics what it could be and return in a few weeks.

Drove the Dart to the Recycling Center before the glass, tin, and paper could collect in a giant pile in the house. Spoke to a few of the town residents. Featured item of the week was a brand new stainless steel saucepan.

Drove to Whitefield and was surprised to see traffic. The cause of this was a 300 person bicycle race from Twin Mtn to Littleton. Police were in Whitefield and in Littleton directing traffic. Also to prevent cyclists from being hit as they took two rights across oncoming traffic in their 20 something mile (32-48 km)race.

Visited a lady friend who has a barn sale loaded with items. Bought 2 pairs of new nylon stocking that look like they are left over from the 1950's They probably are. Two pairs for 25¢.

Plan to go to the barber shop and get a bag of hair to place in the legs and tie a knot. Nylon stocking w/a bar of soap inside is ideal for washing ones' hands that have pitch pine. The mesh really scrubs deeply.

No deals at my pal the meat mgr's supermarket today. Headed to Littleton and decided to stop at the Gold House for their major size steak bomb for $8.06 inc tax. The 12" size did not disappoint.

Then stopped at Big Papa's Marketto look for 1 PM deals before the 2 PM auction of all produce begins. He had sweet yellow bell peppers 5/$2.

Saw that Shaw's had a sale on 3 liters (101 oz's)od Bertolo's Evoo for a mere $16.99. Jumped on that and left the store to avoid temptation to buy more items on sale.

Went to Home Depot and bought 3 new ¼"wide lag bolts 1¼" long to have nice new shiny bolts to attach the pump to the top of my well.

Could use a catch container and a run off pvc pipe to send the run off water from the pump down the gentile slope off into the forest. Have a small and far too shallow dry well filled w/pea stone.

Civil twilight is 5:28 AM EDT. Night is 8:07 PM.

Sunrise: 5:59 AM. Set: 7:36 PM.

Length of day: 14h 37m. Length of visible light: 15h 38m. Tomorrow will be 2m 53s shorter.

The temp is 51° (10.5°C), the high is to be 79° (26°C), in partly cloudy skies now.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Enjoyed a thrilling TV crime drama early in the morning yesterday. A college campus is terrorized by a serial arsonist. The profile team attempts to find the wear abouts of the next fire and who the arsonist is in the TV series "Criminal Minds."

The series follows a team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. The show differs from many procedural dramas by focusing on profiling the criminal, called the unsub or "unknown subject", rather than the crime itself.

Went to bed after 8 PM the night before. Had hoped to sleep until 4 or 5 AM. Sleep until 2 AM. The cause being at 8 AM an abdominal ultrasound was to be done at the hospital.

Did not eat from 1PM the afternoon before until 9 AM. When the test was completed, hightailed it to Subway for a white egg, bacon, provolone, with all the veggies on a 6"flatbread. No jalapeno peppers or hot sauce. A coffee (or soda) included w/tax for $3.27.

Had my shopping list for Shaw 3 day w/e and new weekly sale. Purchased bone in sirloin pork chops for a great price of $1.69, midnight black grapes are $1.67, (bought red the day before for $1.50 a lb) and red peppers field grown are $1.99 a lb. High for this time of the year.

My list was written down that cod was $5.99 a lb. The seafood mgr said it was $6.99 this week. Went to the the front where the fliers are and yes, it read $5.99 a pound.

Returned to the seafood dept and asked for 9 pieces of cod w/big fat loins. When they were all wrapped after weighing (almost 8 lbs), the current flier was given to the seafood mgr.

She said we never sell it at that price. Told her unless they are purchased at $5.99 a lb she would be placed under citizen's arrest by me for theft by deception and bait and switch.

That opened her eyes, especially when she was told by me to call the police. Told her make up her mind, right here, right now. Could hear a giant sigh from her, as she changed the price of the cod sticker for $5.99 a lb totaling $46, instead of the $8.99 (or her $6.99 sale price) list price of $69.

Told her to have a nice day. Then went to the C.S. desk, asked for the store mgr, explained the sales ad reads $5.99 and the seafood sign reads $6.99. Told him that a return visit later will be done to check on the cod price. Mean it.

Went to Sullivan's greenhouse to ask about growing a herb garden. Was told that parsley, cilantro, basil, and oregano do not grow back each spring up in Zone 3. Will consider my new annual 2' x 4' section for a herb garden next spring. A six pack of each this year cost $2.

Bought two more 4" containers of echinacea for $1.25 ea. Returned home to put the food away and cooked some delicious cod. Planted the two new perennials, then relished lots of leisure in the gardens.

Civil twilight is 5:27 AM EDT. Night is 8:09 PM.

Sunrise: 5:58 AM. Set: 7:38 PM.

Length of day: 14h 40m. Length of visible light: 15h 41m. Tomorrow will be 2m 52s shorter.

The temp is 61° (16°C), the high is to be 75° (24°C), in sunny skies now.

Have a tremendous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Left a bit early for the market. It was a very pleasant drive on the CT River Hwy. Everything was so calm and peaceful. A light fog flowed over the river, 3 to 4' above.

With much of that road repaved it felt like cruising down the blvd. A gaggle of 2 dozen geese were laying down resting and grazing in a newly mowed hayfield. The leaders were looking around and most vigilant.

Was the first to arrive at the market. The only cars in the end of the lot were the help. The young hubby, his wife, and his dad were stocking the tables rapidly.

The 6 helpers were unloading the store's own 53' tractor trailer. This is taken to the Boston Produce Center the evening before. is open 8-8 PM Thurs thru Friday. At 2 PM on Saturday. All produce is sold in a fast paced auction.

Bought a few items including 5 bulbs of garlic for $1, navel oranges 3/$1, Driscoll's raspberries 6 oz $1.67 ea, red grapes $1.50 a lb, 2 lbs of onions, $1.38, baby bella $2.25, wax beans $1.18 a lb, Butternut (also acorn) squash 44¢ a lb and cukes up to 50¢ ea.

Went to Shaw's and bought imitation crab in over 2 lbs pkgs for $1.99 alb, Boneless ,skinless chicken breasts on sale for $1.69 a lb (not a typo). broccoli crowns, for $1.49, and cans of Essential condensed cream of soups for $75¢. Bought 10 of each kind.

Headed to Rite Aid and chatted to my pal the store mgr., swapping stories and laughs. Took NH Rt 116 that parallels the Ammonoosuc River It is a wild brook trout tributary of the CT River to Whitefield.

Bought some store made pepper and garlic sausage to freeze. Mostly for my homemade chili. A fine price of $2.99 a lb. Also bought a block of cheddar cheese, 2 lbs, for $9 on sale in the deli.

Got to take some photos for the town calendar during the triangular drive thru 4 towns. Was happy to get the herd of cows that was evasive all summer.

Saw a new sign that point down a trail that goes to a pond that intrigues me to visit real soon. Have an 8 AM appointment at Weeks Memorial Hospital in radiology for an ultrasound in my abdomen.

Civil twilight is 5:26 AM EDT. Night is 8:11 PM.

Sunrise: 5:57 AM. Set: 7:40 PM.

Length of day: 14h 43m. Length of visible light: 15h 44m. Tomorrow will be 2m 51s shorter.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

The ISS orbits by early tonight and tomorrow evening. 8:21 on the East Coast. Minutes later in the Midwest. See the times for all satellite orbits over North America.

Enjoyed finishing my rounds earlier than usual. Watched the new to Netflix, "Criminal Minds." Enjoyed seeing this show when it came out, until the digital signal had less wattage and could not reach the mtns.

Began watching "Patton" (171 min) w/the Great George C. Scott, also Karl Malden co-stars. Saw it many y/a, want to see this epic film again. Patton puts his foot down and expects all to act like a soldier in WWII. Including the wounded.

Went out when the sun rose above the trees. Used the scissors to trim we down all perennial leaves that are blocking the 6 new perennials. Saw the echinacea,only 4-5 inches tall, was being shaded.

Needed to cut out a direct sun to allow its roots to travel as far as possible by first frost. Have room for 2 more in a different spot. The butterflies enjoy the flowers for nectar immensely.

Have a highbush blueberry stil w/green berries. Should get another pint or more in a few weeks. Strawberries are producing more fruit, now the the canopy of grapevines have been cut and removed.

Wildflower are doing great. Tossed some rugged twisted branches from the collection gathered from the storm some days ago on top of the all the wild flowers. Do not want an animal using the soft tilled soil as comfortable bedding.

Felt ambitious and re-mowed the back of the house done a few days ago. Now all the lawn is cut to the same length. Nice to do most of this in the shade. Like the cooler temps and no rain are slowing it growth.

Poured on deep tanning oil, sat in the sun,and enjoyed the read and breeze. Nice strong uv rays. Temp reached a pleasing 77° (25°C). It is the highest temp in the past 30 days.

Civil twilight is 5:25 AM EDT. Night is 8:12 PM.

Sunrise: 5:56 AM. Set: 7:41 PM.

Length of day: 14h 45m. Length of visible light: 15h 47m. Tomorrow will be 2m 50s shorter.

The temp is 58° (14°C), the high is to be 79° (26°C) in clear skies.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Went to Plymouth, Ma yesterday. My back did pretty well as I had hoped. My sister and I visited with her friend who does research work on Mayflower ancestors. We looked at four lines of descendancy I was interested in. We found two did not pan out, but found two others that seem quite sound. I will apply this weekend or there abouts for formal acceptance to the society with the line that looks to be the easiest to prove. The line with my wife involved did not pan out. It appears that one of the men involved had two wives. The first born son was from the first wife, not the Mayflower wife. Right guy, wrong woman. I did have a very good time looking around the library and do wish I lived closer as it has a really great supply of books to research things in.

Got home to find my new monitor for my new PC had finally arrived. I hooked it up and could not get it to work right. Plugged it onto my old PC to test it, and it works quite fine. Looked a bit father on my new PC to discover that the video card is pegged as "having a problem" bu windows, so its driver is disabled. It WAS working just a week ago. Looking at Turtles notes and links, I suspect that the Microsoft updates may be at the root of my issue. Thanks to Turtles sharp eyes I might be able to fix it without calling people. I do remember a "double boot" the other day. Windows has a default behavior of rebooting on errors. I usually change this so that it just stops and displays the error. I have not done that with this PC yet. I am guessing the driver clashed with the update, and got disabled. Without the driver, the new monitor cannot communicate properly with the video card and negotiate the right display settings. ARRRRGGGGHHH! Something else I need to do that I should not need to do! This week is becoming a PITA!

Good morning ohyeah!

Saw an episode of "Orange is the New Black" yesterday morning. A privileged NY'er is sent to a women's prison for a crime committed in her past. In the Emmy Award winning comedy/drama series.

Two seasons of this show are on Netflix, the producer of the series, and a 3rd season is being filmed for release next July.

Went outdoors early. Ripped or dug crab grass that was beginning to grow in my gardens. Also pulled the jewel weed that grows so rapidly.

Also cut down many sword like 2" leaves and stalks of crocosmia lucifer that the rain laid flat a few days ago. It was smuffing out the sunlight of neighboring perennials and would have killed the lawn.

Found room that was 2' x 1' for a dozen flowers. Hightailed it to Sullivan Greenhouses where two 6 pack mixed marigold were on sale at half price. Two for $2.50.

Returned home to see how root bound the marigolds were. Used the blunt blade of a scissors to twist out the tangled roots. This method worked nicely and quickly.

Have the assorted colors of the dozen in the ground. Sprayed two small blocks of wood w/deer and rabbit repellent and added two scent containers on either ends.

Moved the front half of the lawn. The amount of twigs and leaves amazed me from the rain storm a few days ago. The mower did get only half of them. Will have to pick the twigs by hand. 100's of them.

Sat in the sun, added lots of deep tanning lotion, and read a book. Could hear something in the distance thrashing around in the forest. In fact looked up several times. It was a racoon, which was promptly chased away.

Civil twilight is 5:23 AM EDT. Night is 8:14 PM.

Sunrise: 5:54 AM. Set: 7:43 PM.

Length of day: 14h 48m. Length of visible light: 15h 50m. Tomorrow will be 2m 50s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C), the high is to be 79° (26°C) in clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Got lots of laughs watching 2 episodes of "Everybody Loves Raymond." Need an early morning laughter to cleanse the soul and face the pleasing day of sun.

No time to even think of a nap. Had an 8:15 appointment with the Littleton Hospital Ophthalmologist. Here is a man that does it all w/one's eyes,including laser surgery. Truly my first appointment in 40 years.

Asked for rec'd a photocopy of my last visit that documents ocular migraine and copies of all the other tests performed. Have a clean bill of eye health.

Got my eyes measured and checked for roundness and depth. Sphere is equal, cylindrical is a close .25 difference and the axis is .005 dif. Have 20/40 vision and my first eye glass prescription since 1974.

Own three sets of eye glasses. Two are clear plastic, one of them is a transition lens in the sunlight. One is permanently a prescription sunglass w/UV protection. Ideal for the snow covered mtns.

Bought four cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup at WM. Their Great value brand was $1.25 ea. Passed on the 2 lb bay shrimp and the 41-50 large shrimp. Did buy another 8 lb bag of epsom salts for $5.43.

Ent next door to Shaw's and saw their Essential brand of condensed cream of mushroom soup was on sale for 75¢ a can. Bought 8 cans and two cream of chicken.

Also bought a 2 lb frozen pkg of imitation crab for $1/99 a lb. An elderly lady spoke to me on the cost of meat, poultry and seafood that has increased tremendously.

Listened to her and them told her the only way to save is stock up and freeze the on sale items. She agreed w/me completely. Returned to WM and got my money back for the cans of condensed soup. Shaw's was 40% less.

Returned home to place the items away then went outdoors. Did lots of garden maintenance in the sun. Decided all 6 of the perennials bout and transplanted were not in the direct sun they needed.

Made a paper plan to move them later in the morning. Considered mowing the lawn. My hip hurt way too much from use in the hospitals and in the stores to mow. Will mow later on.

Civil twilight is 5:22 AM EDT. Night is 8:16 PM.

Sunrise: 5:53 AM. Set: 7:45 PM.

Length of day: 14h 51m. Length of visible light: 15h 53m. Tomorrow will be 2m 49s shorter.

The temp is 48° (9°C), the high is to be 73° (23°C), w/sunny skies later.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Today I need to head out and pick a PT place. I also need to stop at the Credit Union and make a deposit. Tomorrow my sister and I are heading down to Plymouth to visit her friend at the Mayflower society library. We will be looking at the proofs I am bringing and seeing what/if anything else is needed as proof. I want to actually get my grandchildren enrolled as lifetime members of the society. Feel it will do them good to be part of it during their lives. Should be a VERY interesting trip! Hope to find some good tips for researching ancestors while at it too.
Looks like our weather is going to be pretty good for the trip. Temps in the mid to upper 70's and dew points behaving themselves and staying in the 50's. We have been having a cooler than normal August which does not bother me!

Good morning ohyeah!

Went out just before first light yesterday during the rain to cover the deer and rabbit repellent containers. Used a bullet flashlight w/9 LED's to brighten the way. These small fist size lights are as powerful as my $60 headlamp. Think mine were $4 each.

It was misting nicely.The cars were beaded with water droplets. Had a Hunts tomato paste can that was filled with 1½ inches of rain water placed on the driveway the day before.

All the plants and flowers are doing well. Picked some blue and some strawberries before any critters got 'em. The wildflowers are growing slow but sure.

Have a 30' row of various daylilies. The red and yellow ones are blooming. The orange ones have gone by for the season. Plan to add 4 more of the red variety in the spring. Also will add more low growing perennials come May.

Watched "This Old House"on PBS and then a 60 min show on Elvis when he was a boy singing Gospel Songs in in Tupelo, Mississippi. Then his family moved to Memphis.

Fascinating breakthrough from an average singer as a 10 y/o to a top teen rockabilly singer in a band during his late high school days. The rest is history.

Had a field day enjoying some war game action playing StarCraft: Brood War for a few hours. The on and off rain lasted until 1 PM. Wanted to mow the other section of the lawn. It was soaking wet.

Have a eye doc appointment first thing at 8:15. May as well have a record of a current eyeglass prescription. Mine is on file at my favorite optician in Boston. A call orders new glasses mailed within days. Want to price shop locally.

Will listen to the home team as they play Houston in Fenway Park. The afternoon became overcast. A fine day for some R & R and baseball.

munchkins_mom, If The Cape was like the past two days in the mtns, you did right waiting for the boat trip to Maine. Gosh,the rest of the week looks like a beauty.

Civil twilight is 5:21 AM EDT. Night is 8:18 PM.

Sunrise: 5:52 AM. Set: 7:46 PM.

Length of day: 14h 54m. Length of visible light: 15h 56m. Tomorrow will be 2m 47s shorter.

The temp is 57° (12°C), the high is to be 66° (19°C), w/a 50% chance of rain now w/sunny skies later.

Have an early morning eye doc appointment in Littleton.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Went out after my posts in the morning to cover the containers of scent. There was mist/light rain. A trace of .01 in was rec'd.

Returned inside to watch an episode of "Lost Girl" and lie down for a while. Was drained from the 1 AM wake up. Tried to sleep, could not. Took a walk in the gardens to see the flowers, fruit, and plants.

Played some land and air battles w/the three species on StarCraft: Brood War. Hoped the lawn would dry out to mow. It did not. Went to the Recycling Center, P.O. and then to Shaw's.

Passed on the $7.99 large cooked shrimp 41-50 per lb., 14 oz. Visited my pal the meat mgr in Whitefield to see if there were any big deals. None, even hamburger increased by 30¢.

The main office told him to increase the meat prices. All meat, poultry, and seafood prices have increased by 33% in the last few months. Am glad my freezer is well stocked food.

Decided against driving to WM just to price shrimp. Nothing else wasme. needed. Figured it is $7 just to drive there and return home. Will think of other items needed to make a trip worthwhile.

Boiled in the microwave ⅓ lb of linguine, drained well, a pour of evoo, diced garlic, Mrs Dash, a half can of cream of mushroom soup, with thick slices of cooked baby bella and broccol added to the pasta.

It went well with a part of a chicken breast. Will have it for 4-6 more meals.

Rain early in the afternoon drove my inside. Nice to get caught up with paperwork and some light house cleaning.

Civil twilight is 5:19 AM EDT. Night is 8:19 PM.

Sunrise: 5:51 AM. Set: 7:48 PM.

Length of day: 14h 57m. Length of visible light: 15h 59m. Tomorrow will be 2m 47s shorter.

The temp is 54° (12°C), the high is to be 66° (19°C), w/a 50% chance of rain now in overcast skies.

Have a splendid day!

Good afternoon Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Well, I have three ruptured disks in a row, and I also have stenosis in the area leaving less room to deal with the disks. Fun, fun. Will head out Monday to see some PT people and see if I can talk briefly with them about how they would do PT. Need to pick one Its my back, I need to be comfortable with how they will approach it.
Been taking it real easy. My BIG work the last week was mowing the front yard. That was about the limit of what I could do too. Been spending some time picking and putting in my spare room, and also sorting out the pictures and negatives from the last 25-30 years. Lots to sort through there! Am a bit bored, and surely feeling restricted. Hoping you are feeling good and getting out and doing fun things. Any beach trips planned?

Good morning ohyeah!

Woke up at 1 AM, did my rounds, watched an episode of Law and Order, then took a 90 minute nap. Was nice and refreshed when it was noticed that the time was 7 AM. Lots of day left.

Went outside to pick up the remaining sticks and branches the storm had left the other day. Had done only half the property the day before. Made a good size pile that will be super for kindling.

The battery was installed in the Neon. Nice to see the dome light come on and the ding sound that the door was open. Turned the key and it did not crank. Will have my buddy's son looks at the two possible causes this w/e.

The lawn was so wet from dew the night before it sparkled in the sun. Decided to go for a drive and allow the sun and wind to dry the grass. Headed for the P.O. and rec'd some bills with lots free cc offers.

Went to Shaws for their Wicked Awesome 3 Day w/e sale. Saw cooked large shrimp for $7.99 41-50 per lb., 14 oz. bag. Will compare that to WM prices during the w/e.

Did find two excellent deals. Cappicola (Spicy Hot Italian ham) was on sale for just $2.99 a lb. Both both pkgs that were discounted, as they were the near ends of the loaf and sliced.

Saw a loaf of Scala bread that expires today marked down to $1.50 a one pound loaf. Had a plastic knife in the car just for these emergencies. Cut off two slabs of that soft tender bread and made a fabulous cold cut sammie.

Was going to visit my pal at his store in Whitefield. Then changed my mind to go to Sullivan's Greenhouses. Talked to the young gal who was met two weeks ago.

Bought 6 pint (4") perennials of 2 each of Rudbeckia-hirta, Echinacea-magnus, and Blanket flower (gaillardia grandiflora). Returned home, put the food away , then prepared and planted the perennials.

They are in the 24-30" and 30-36" size when matured in three years. Easily worth the $7.50 paid for all 6. Mowed half the more difficult half of the lawn, then returned inside for a treat of grapes.

Civil twilight is 5:18 AM EDT. Night is 8:21 PM.

Sunrise: 5:50 AM. Set: 7:50 PM.

Length of day: 14h 59m. Length of visible light: 15h 02m. Tomorrow will be 2m 45s shorter.

The temp is 54° (12°C), the high is to be 71° (22°C), in partly cloudy skies w/lots of sun.

Have a tremendous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

The ISS orbits twice 9:09/10:45 tonight and tomorrow night 8:20/9:46 in some places.

At 5 AM my power went off yesterday morning. Phoned the Public Service Company of New Hampshire to tell the Co that my power went off. A pre-recorded message stated many communities surrounding me had no electricity.

Decided to go back to sleep with the power returning in 10 minutes. The quickest it returned in many years.

The rain rec'd Wednesday peaked at 4:30 PM with .40" an hour falling. The wind gust reached 18 mph (28 km/h). The rain rec'd was an inch. Went outdoors to see the rugged cherry tree 16' from the house split off and tipped over.

Saw many branches and tips of trees blown on my lawn, the mtn road, and on the hwy on the way to Littleton. Two trees that were across the highway were removed earlier with debris and sawdust piles from chainsaws present.

At Big Papa's Market (prices and photos) brought were giant cantaloupes $1.75 ea, pints of raspberries $1.67, tomatoes $1 a lb, 5 lbs of carrots are $2.75, and broccoli crowns $1.38.

Also bought were limes 5 $1, lemons 3 $2, ortanes 50¢ ea,

Temps have been in the mid 60's (C) all week sunny w/ just 2 days of rain. Love these temps the best, unlike places with temps of 102° (39°C), such as bloody Fresno has each and every day.

Love the mild temps of New England, the congenial country folks, livin' so wonderfully rural, and down to Earth lower cost of living that is so pleasing.

Often am reminded of "The Good Life", (a movie and TV series), it is a philosophical term for the life that one would like to live, originally associated with Aristotle.

Civil twilight is 5:17 AM EDT. Night is 8:23 PM.

Sunrise: 5:49 AM. Set: 7:51 PM.

Length of day: 14h 02m. Length of visible light: 15h 05m. Tomorrow will be 2m 45s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C), the high is to be 65° (18°C), w/a 40% chance of rain now in overcast skies.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: I head to the doctor this afternoon to see what is ailing my back. The MRI was done Tuesday. Hope for a definitive answer. In the mean time I have been laying kind of low and not doing anything much physical. I have gotten some of the hundreds of rolls of film negatives sorted and put in archive sleeves! I hope to round them all up and get them all into sleeves, labeled, and dated. Want them all stored in chronological order. I have a film scanner that will allow me to scan a negative and make a positive image of them. That would be the NEXT project is to scan each roll to digital images and store them on the PC. That requires backing them up too! Big project, but while I cannot lift more than a few pounds and can not move too much.....

Hope you are having some good weekend weather for beach time!

Good morning ohyeah!

Enjoyed playing Starcraft: Brood War. It is the expansion pack for the award winning military science fiction, real-time strategy video game StarCraft. Floats my boat since 1998. Adventure, action, and my all time favorite: War.

Did want to nap, fought the fatigue from the 1 AM rise. Picked some dime size blueberries and examined the plants for those japanese beetles. Covered the containers of ammonia and my scent.

Returned inside to add the contents of the crock pot into the 2 quart pyrex. Washed the crock pot, then added four of the six boneless skinless chicken breasts bought Sunday for a great price of $1.69 a lb.

Added a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, some carrots, 5 red potatoes, and the last of the green beans. Decided to do my laundry then drive to Littleton to buy a battery for the Neon.

WM was jammed like it was Saturday. Long lines in 10 open check out counters. Bought several other items then went to the SCM desk. After an amazing 15 minute wait, the battery was purchased and the core, brought into the store was credited on my account.

Bougth a think and stocky mini notebook w/200 pages and plastic covers, called a 'fatbook' for just 97¢. 9" x 11" ruled notebooks were on sale for only 17¢ ea. Bought a gallon of Rain X. It coats the dry car glass windshield like it was telfon. Rain bounces off of it.

The 32-40 shrimp to a lb was out as was the 8 lb pkg of epsom salt. Instead of stocking on black pepper, two original Mrs Dash containers were bought for $2.38 each Black pepper retailed for 50 ¢.

Went to Shaw's to buy an end of deli roast beef for $4.99 a lb and green grapes for $1.47 a lb. Also bought another 10 6 oz cans of Bumble Bee Chunk White Tuna in water for 69¢ ea. Love tuna, especially at that price.

It sure did rain like mad on the way home. WUnderground stats read .25" an hour. in my 40 min drive. Needed to slow down to 40 at times. The hwy was difficult to see clearly.

Checked for plant damage. There was none. Everything is getting a drink. Left a hat in the rain to wash it on the gentle cycle. Will go out after my post, wash the car, and allow the rain to rinse it off. Lots of fun.

Civil twilight is 5:16 AM EDT. Night is 8:24 PM.

Sunrise: 5:47 AM. Set: 7:53 PM.

Length of day: 14h 05m. Length of visible light: 15h 08m. Tomorrow will be 2m 43s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C), the high is to be 65° (18°C), w/a 90% chance of sun in partly cloudy skies. Off to the market for some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Watched an episode of "Breaking Bad" and "Orange is the New Black." Then took a 90 minute nap. Decided to drive to the Super WM in Woodsville and buy some food items that my local one does not carry.

It was a pleasant drive down scenic Rt 302 east through rural towns named Lisbon, Lyman, Bath and Woodsville. Mostly vast farms with corn growing are see. Also saw many wildflowers of all colors in bloom on the sides of the road.

The Town of Bath wooden bridge is still being refurbished. From its quaint downtown, it looks to be ready for the autumn tourist season. The Ammonoosuc River was so beautiful and peaceful. A pair of ducks frolicked in its tranquil waters.

Fought oncoming hunger while passing the Subway section of that WM. Stopped at the Gold House in Littleton Take a peek at their menu and scroll down to see their low prices.

My choice was a fantastic Steak and cheese special w/onions, peppers, and mushrooms. A rich 12" long feast for just $7.39 plus tax. Grand total only $8.06. The biggest and best in the area.

Civil twilight is 5:14 AM EDT. Night is 8:26 PM.

Sunrise: 5:46 AM. Set: 7:54 PM.

Length of day: 14h 07m. Length of visible light: 15h 11m. Tomorrow will be 2m 42s shorter.

The temp is 65° (18°C) w/a 100% chance of rain.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

The ISS orbits by twice early tonight on the East Coast and in BC Canada.

Saw the pilot of a TV show that has been on my interest list for many months on Netflix. Like the way the pilot was edited to get the viewers attention with plenty of action. Then go back to the correct time line.

The show is "Breaking Bad." A high school chemistry teacher dying of terminal cancer teams with a former student to manufacture and sell high grade crystal methedrine to secure his family's future.

One of the strangest story lines ever. Rottentomatoes.com (the put down site) gives this a rare 100% score from its tough critics and a 99% viewer approval. Will see the 2nd episode and keep an open mind.

Went outdoors mid morning to water the plants and check on things. Looks like a bunny found my lowest cluster of near orange tomatoes tasty. It dined on three and left half of the fourth.

Sprayed some short wood pieces w/rabbit and deer repellent (has a rotten egg smell for an hour then goes away, it still remains potent) and placed them on the tomato mounds. My first year having a tomato harvest in August. Very happy with the preparation, care, and results.

Brought a step ladder to stand up around the fenced in 10' x 10' garden. It has chicken wire sides, then overhead and sides covered with ¾ nylon mesh. Sure does keep the birds out.

The Concord grape vine took off this summer and began to cover the four sides and all across the overhead netting. Needed the ladder to reach across the top to cut and put the vines off.

The tendrils wrap rugged and all had to be snipped off. Strawberries and green beans are now in 100% light.

Hope to one day have a super grape harvest. Will expand the east and west sides w/a trellis like addition. Even a wire strung 10' on each side is enough. Plan on it for next spring.

Civil twilight is 5:13 AM EDT. Night is 8:28 PM.

Sunrise: 5:45 AM. Set: 7:56 PM.

Length of day: 14h 10m. Length of visible light: 15h 14m. Tomorrow will be 2m 40s shorter.

The temp is 62° (17°C) with the high to be 78° (26°C) in clear skies.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Look for the ISS tonight at 10:45 on the East Coast and twice tomorrow evening early. Times of all satellites for all of North America.

Removed the pork chops and veggies from the crockpot, cleaned it, then added 1.5 pounds of country style pork ribs marinated with Ah So sauce. Aso three pork chops, few red potatoes, 1 lb of carrots, and 1¼ lbs of green beans were added.

Went outdoors at 9 AM and loaded 5 cairns (stacks of rocks) in my wheelbarrow and brought about 50% to pile in the side of the ditches at the end of my driveway.

That way if anyone by chance runs off the edge of my driveway, they have an excellent chance of returning to the road. Wheelbarrowed so many trips that the count was lost. Quite the workout.

Had begun stacking the cairns two summers ago. Was a fabulous morning to rid the property of extra granite that were in the 40-50 lb (18 to 22 kg) yield. NH grows lots of granite. Seems mostly to be on my property.

Began to heavily prune my Concord grape vine. Tho it is a spring tradition, vines were running across the nylon netting restricting sun to the strawberries and green bean plants.

Did see a few grapes, still green, on the vines. Battled the Japanese beetles with a container of soapy spray and a dusting of Sevin. Also shaking off the beetles into a container of soapy water lowers the population. Am often reminded, "The rules of fair play do not apply in love and war."

Had a delicious lunch of veggies w tender ribs, a part of a chop on the side, along w/a healthy salad of green leaf lettuce, spinach, pineapple chunks, three berries, squares of cheddar, black olives, cuke slices, baby bella, cottage cheese, a drizzle of evoo along with diced garlic. There is no place like home.

Listened to the home team play the LA Angels at 3:35 in Anaheim on my Dart's radio. A fabulous games and a fine win for the home team. The sun is blazed at 80° w/a 57° dew point in a pleasing humidity of 48%. It will be another day to be the sun and further my tan.

Civil twilight is 5:12 AM EDT. Night is 8:29 PM.

Sunrise: 5:44 AM. Set: 7:57 PM.

Length of day: 14h 13m. Length of visible light: 15h 17m. Tomorrow will be 2m 40s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C) with the high to be 81° (27°C) in clear skies.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Visited the Recycling Center to transfer glass, cans, paper and cardboard to their proper containers. The Town Highway Dept foreman (We use the term Road Agent) was taking the place of the usual worker.

The reg worker went to see his daughter in a show at a youth performance at the Weathervane Theatre in Whitefield. Chatted with the Road Agent for 30 minutes.

Then it was off to my pals mkt to talk and look for deals. No superdeals, yet lots of gab.Compliment his homemade sausage that was purchased the other day that left not a drop of grease while cooking.

Stopped at the town's annual BBQ, store booths, children's games fleas market and 50/50 raffle. It is a fundraiser to keep the original town hall building maintained. The new Board of Selectmen desire the original grange and town office building to be razed into an unneeded parking lot.

Learned a lot of the shady ways of spending money w/o approval of the town voters the new Board of Selectmen has been doing. Also 6 months later the town still does not have a police dept.

The one officer who lived up the mtn road quit to work for a tree clearing co. Back in March the majority vote of the annual town meeting favored not paying the State Police to patrol in favor of a town police force. There is none.

Civil twilight is 5:11 AM EDT. Night is 8:31 PM.

Good afternoon Ohyeah ::HUGS:: PC is done, swapped in and running well. My only beef is it does not stay asleep well. It wakes up by itself. Need to find out why. I am having more back issues. Saw my neurologist last week and have an MRI scheduled for Tuesday with a follow up appointment scheduled for Thursday. Hope to find out what the he!! is going on. I am getting sore enough I can barely do anything physical without being in pain for hours after. Grr. Now that the migraines are finally behaving, this!

Good morning ohyeah!

Saw a most excellent drama named "The Encounter" (2011) 85 min, that held my interest and entertained superbly. Suppose you met Jesus in a diner?

Stranded in the middle of nowhere five strangers find themselves marooned in a deserted roadside diner. An arrogant businessman (Steve "Sting" Borden), a lonely single woman (Jaci Velazquez), a couple on the verge of divorce, and a youthful runaway all come face to face with a diner owner who serves them more than temporal nourishment.

This genial host is a certain Nazarene (Bruce Marchiano), who knows all of their secrets and possesses the answers to all of their problems — if only they would trust and believe in Him. It is a miraculous Encounter that will leave them all changed.

Free to see here. No virus, worms, trojans, drivebys etc. No swears or violence. Just a free fab wholesome movie for the entire family. My rating is 5/5stars.

Stopped at the local greenhouse and talked shop w/a pretty 27 y/o gal. Her 10th year with the mom & pop flower farm. The more she spoke, the more Q's she was asked.

Have the names of some perennials that may be purchased next May. All plant & flower pints (4"x4") are just $1.25 each. Overloaded quarts are $4.50 to $12.95. Many gardens had stunted growth of flowers due to the extra harsh winter. Want to wait and know how the garden grows next spring.

Enjoyed an early afternoon basking in the sun, reading, then doing routine garden maintenance and simply enjoying the flowers. Temp was 72° (22°C) in mostly clear skies. Now on a run of sun through Monday with highs in the upper 70's (26°C).

Civil twilight is 5:09 AM EDT. Night is 8:32 PM.

Sunrise: 5:42 AM. Set: 8:00 PM.

Length of day: 14h 18m. Length of visible light: 15h 23m. Tomorrow will be 2m 36s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C) with the high to be 78° (25°C) in mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.

Have a tremendous day!

Good Morning, Ohyeah! ♪ ♫ I hope all is well with your family and work. Have a great Friday and weekend ahead!

Sorry I haven't visited here in a long time. Life has gotten very busy for me, as I have been busy searching for jobs and new Music Students, due to having fewer Students to teach now and lesser income due to the recession.

I have a special announcement to make. I decided to close up my former MusicTeacher’s Studio and open up my brand new MusicTeacher’s Studio this morning, because one of my regular Studio visitors, MidnightSun, was unable to find and visit my Studio last night. I did not want to leave MidnightSun or possibly other GasBuddies out from finding my Studio and visiting me. Please "Add to favorite topics" and/or bookmark my brand new MusicTeacher's Studio for your future visits to my brand new GB Home.

Have a Wonderful Friday!

Good morning ohyeah!

Look for the ISS on the East Coast at 8:20 PM (WSW) and 10 PM (WNW) tonight. Times for all of North America.

Went out early to check the plants, cover the ammonia and my scent containers w/lids and spray deer and rabbit repellent. Rain was heavily forecast w/the sky looking ominous.

T-storms were heard far south of here in the afternoon. We rec'd 1.03in of rain, mostly in 30 min, for the day.

Enjoyed the drive on the CT River Hwy aka NH Rt 135. The state had added ⅛ inch of resurfacing since my last trip. Nice and pleasing to cruise down the blvd on a smooth hwy.

Best deals at Big Papa's Market this w/e are a 2 pint (12 oz) pkg of Driscoll's raspberries for $2.75, 1 lb of strawberries $1.33.

Also bought were packham pears 3/$1, red bell peppers $1.88 a lb, avocados 4/$2 (lowest price ever in these parts), cukes 40¢ red grapes $2.38 a lb and asparagus $2.50 a lb.

Went to WM and brought the old battery in a bag on a shopping cart. Had my receipt which was written in, good thru 12/8/14. Gave her the receipt and the battery and said it will not hold a charge.

She turned her side of the battery toward me. It read right on the case, "2 year warranty." So it expired nearly 1 y/a and w/3 years written by mistake on the folded receipt.

WM wanted $78 plus change for a new battery (w/a 2 year warranty). Drove to two auto part stores in Littleton and got a quote from each. W/a 2 year warranty on each brand, the stores wanted $100 to $109.

Plan to return to WM for their lower priced battery (Think it was an Eveready.) if my local store can not beat or match $78. The Neon registration is $93, ins $125, and it will cost $500 for 4 new tires. Will mull over adding the Neon back on the road.

Civil twilight is 5:08 AM EDT. Night is 8:34 PM.

Sunrise: 5:40 AM. Set: 8:02 PM.

Length of day: 14h 21m. Length of visible light: 15h 25m. Tomorrow will be 2m 35s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C) with the high to be 74° (19°C) in mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.

Have a delightful day!

On this date, in 1947, the wooden raft Kon-Tiki, which carried Thor Heyerdahl and five companions more than 4,000 miles, crashed into a reef in the Pacific.

Good morning ohyeah!

Added the remaining meatballs and a few ziti shells marinating in my homemade tomato sauce in a 2 qt Pyrex glass container. W/o a doubt the pasta dish increases its taste the next day and beyond.

Made my homemade marsala sauce then added about 10 ounces to the fresh crockpot. Added carrots and potatoes and nuked the whole deal for 12 minutes. The sauce was simmering nicely and the veggies were hot.

Finely diced 6 cloves of garlic to the sauce, then added six of the assorted pork chops bought on sale for $1.88 the other day. Went outside to water the flower and plants and continue garden maintenance.

Had my fill of it and got even more ambitious. Mowed half the lawn. Temp was 62° (17C°) in a soothing light breeze. Wore boots and shorts. This day mowing was fun!

Returned inside to the overpowering fragrance of the house permeating the delightful aroma of garlic and marsala wine. Tried to forgot the teasing smell. Had to go for a drive to get away.

Drove to Whitefield to get gas for $3.529. The state was added ⅜ inches of repavement over some sections of US Rt 3. Excellent to get the cracks out and smooth over the rough spots.

Bought cod at my pals' supermarket Just $5.99 a lb. He took Tues and Wed off. Talked to the 2nd in command. He said he just made homemade sausage out of 98% lean pork and guaranteed there would be no fat in the pan. Unlike all store bought sausage.

Picked up a 2 lb plg for $2.99 a lb and two 2 lb pkgs of pork loin country style ribs heavily marinated w/Ah-So sauce for an amazing $2.29 a lb.

Returned home to a sumptuous meal of pork chops, veggies and a taste of the sausage nuked between two paper plates. No grease at all. Love it!

Civil twilight is 5:07 AM EDT. Night is 8:35 PM.

Sunrise: 5:39 AM. Set: 8:03 PM.

Length of day: 14h 23m. Length of visible light: 15h 28m. Tomorrow will be 2m 34s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C) at 10 AM with the high to be 67° (19°C) in mostly clear skies. A 60% chance of rain this afternoon.

Off to the market later for a few items.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Got ambitious and dug more soil around the new annuals. Had left a foot strip between a boulder and the flowers. That would not sit well with me. Moved the sod to a bare spot at the edge of the lawn.

Drove to the PO and got my mail. Rec'd my C.U. Visa c.c. bill. Had wanted to pay it Fri or during the w/e. It was a pleasing reminder. Bill was not due to the end of the month. Best to pay it off early.

Went to two of the intown Greenhouses to look for discounted annuals.None remained in stock. Drove the two miles south of town to Sullivan's Greenhouses (Google Earth camera for a view of the hwy, mtns, and river). They had super healthy six packs for $1 each. Bought three of various marigolds.

Shopped at Shaws for some deals. Bought assorted porkchops for $1.88 during their weekly sale. Will return to Littleton on Thursday to Big Papa's mkt and that town's Shaw's for boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.69.

Made a great lunch w/many veggies and 1 small center cut pork chop. Dessert was a juicy pear and slice of cantaloupe. Returned outdoors to transplant the flowers, water all the plants, and prune, pinch, and deadhead what was needed.

Sun is out there shining like crazy. See the t-storm clouds are passing to the south and north of us. We missed the 80% chance of rain and t-bangers that were forecast.

Civil twilight is 5:05 AM EDT. Night is 8:37 PM.

Sunrise: 5:38 AM. Set: 8:04 PM.

Length of day: 14h 26m. Length of visible light: 15h 31m. Tomorrow will be 2m 31s shorter.

The temp is 60° (16°C) with the high to be 75° (24°C) in mostly clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Forgot about the 3 packed 18" x 11" x 12" tall cardboard boxes filled w/non perishable items for hours. Lucky for me they were seen by the front door when it was time for my lunch just before 8 AM.

Quickly got ready and carried each box to the car. Drove adventurously to Whitefield on US Rt 3, then on Rt 142 to The Assembly of God in Bethlehem.

The Pastor and his wife are neighbors of mine about ½ mile up the mtn from me. They are just several hundred feet up from the remote unpopulated fire road that allows access deep into forest.

Made it to the church 30 minutes before the needy arrived. We swapped several stories. Told him of the "Seen two calves walking by" story on Friday. Had some great laughs together.

They thanked me for the generous food and we said our goodbyes. Drove to downtown Littleton, being 4 miles right there. Visited my pal at Rite Aid. Also shared stories of jolliness.

Paid my monthly payment of the Dart at the CU. Their system was down so they wrote me a receipt on a full sheet of paper. Went to the State of NH Liquor Store for some marsala cooking wine.

Saw 5 older women come thru the front door w/shopping carriages. Did wonder how much liquor or wine they were going to buy. In NH all liquor and a vast selection of wine can only be bought atthe state owned store. Yet beer and wine can be sold in supermarkets.

Sat in the sun reading for 1 hour. Then detailed the Dart by vacuuming and wiping the interior with a foam cleaner. Had time to wash then turtle wax the entire car.

Had the Neon on my 70 amp battery charger for some hours. No even the dome light or the ding that the door was open can on. Disconnected the battery removed it, and put it in two plastic bags in the back floor of the Dart. Will exchange it at WM Thursday. Warranty is good thru Dec 2014.

Civil twilight is 5:04 AM EDT. Night is 8:38 PM.

Sunrise: 5:37 AM. Set: 8:06 PM.

Length of day: 14h 28m. Length of visible light: 15h 34m. Tomorrow will be 2m 31s shorter.

The temp is 62° (17°C) with the high to be 78° (25°C). An 80% chance of rain. We need it.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning ohyeah!

Packed full three 18" x 11" x 12" tall cardboard boxes with cereals, powdered milk, oatmeal, pasta, various canned fruits, canned veggies, pb, applesauce, and different juices for the food bank at the Assembly of God church at 9 AM.

Lots of young mothers, wed and unwed, along w/many unemployed people of all ages, and senior citizens will be happy to share in the food donated by me and many others given out to the needy the first Monday of each month. Have donated my share before and will continue to.

Fought the thought of driving one way, 53 miles to North Conway, NH. Needed nothing else there. It was an overcast morning with cool temps, so even a visit to Diana's Baths would have seen few people and solid gray skies, not ideal for photography composition.

Plan to go on a bright, sunny day. On a hot day 100's seek the cool cascading waters of Diana's Baths. Many bring picnics along with their dogs to spend hours in the sun or shade, pools or waterfalls.

Made a crock pot with tomato paste with salt free diced tomatoes along with eight of my fave Italian spices, diced onions, and thick sliced baby bellas. Slow cooked this on high for two hours.

Made sirloin pork ground meatballs about an inch in diameter and cooked them for 30 minutes. With oatmeal, spinach and broccoli added, this is a heck of a healthy, practically fat free pork meatballs. Like mine moist, tender, and juicy.

Froze the big half of sauce and meatballs. Boiled water in the 2 qt Pyrex in the microwave to cook some al dente ziti. Garlic is added to the sauce, meatballs, and to the cooking water. Feel the more garlic, the healthier and better tasting it is.

After a filling lunch, the outdoors greeted me with sun in partly clouded skies. Watered all the plants, flowers and highbush blueberries. Picked 2 cups of juicy bb's.

Placed them in a ZipLock bag and froze them with the others. A bumper crop considering 2 y/a deer nibbled off many branches. They did not even eat what was bitten off.

Irish Spring soap bars hung from the plants work great.; The odor of the scent of the soap causes deer to scurry away w/o touching the bushes. Have been lucky the birds have left the bb's alone as well. Quite certain the soap odor scares them away as well.

Have had no further critter problem w/several 16 oz cottage cheese containers full of ammonia and my scent in 1 container of each of the four locations. Covers are right beside them for when it rains. Have Irish Spring bars to place there as a repellent in the rain.

The ISS orbits by at 10:03 EDT tonight and twice tomorrow evening at 9:14 and 10:51 PM on the East Coast. Here is the link to find it anywhere in our North American area. The site is often overloaded w/visitors. Suggest early morning or late night visits to avoid disappointment.

Civil twilight is 5:03 AM EDT. Night is 8:40 PM.

Sunrise: 5:36 AM. Set: 8:07 PM.

Length of day: 14h 31m. Length of visible light: 15h 36m. Tomorrow will be 2m 28s shorter.

The temp is 62° (17°C) with the high to be 78° (25°C). A 40% chance of rain thru Wed.

Have a pleasant day!

Good afternoon Ohyeah ::HUGS:: Well, the PC is put together except for two small parts I need. They come tomorrow. I do have it partly loaded with software. I just need to load one or two more things and I can swap it out with the one I currently use. Once I do that, I have to uninstall two software packages from the old one so I can install them on the new one. It will not properly register them otherwise. Then comes the fun of making sure all the peripherals work. Should be mostly settled in by Tuesday.

Good morning ohyeah!

Viewed over 700 photos taken from last winter to the present. Had forgotten many of them. Wrote down a few of .jpg numbers to consider posting them. Perhaps at another site as they very clear with 6 to 7 MB of pixels.

The hours clicked away evaluating the winter spring and summer shots. Suddenly it was 10 AM and only the pix were seen. Made and omelet of the last of the thawed shrimp, some pork cutlet cubes, a piece of the chicken breast and 4 veggies.

Sat in the sun, took in the rays, the silent beauty of the forest, and the flowers.Heard a vehicle enter my front driveway. An unknown fellow got out of one jazzy Chevy Silverado.

Walked up to him, we introduced each other, and shook hands. Took a long look at his stunning new pick up truck. It was a 2014 Silverado 3500HD Crew Cab, Long Box LTZ Dual Rear Wheel RWD. A $60,000+ rig. Beyond impressive!

He asked me the strangest question ever asked, "Did you see two calves walk by?" "No Mister, I did not." He gave me his and his son's cell phone numbers. This fellow was the one who rented the giant fields, the 4 story barn and farmhouse 2 y/o.

He said he bought two Hereford calves (duck is a bonus) that cost $4,000. They are to be entered in the Lancaster State Fair at the of the month. They somehow escaped.

His son saw the hoof tracks in the gravel road and followed them down the mtn. After 750' from my driveway his son entered the forest. They were in there and found.

The father went to get the cattle trailerwhile the son, about 30 y/o, got the calves out of the forest. Sure did slow a few of the neighbors.

When the entertainment was over it was back into the sun, a seat, and a chess mag to read while absorbing some fabulous Vitamin D.

Sat in the sun reading two mags absorbing some excellent vitamin D and getting my tan darker.

Temps in the mtns will remain in the mid 70's (24°C) and in the mid 50's (13°C) at night w/scattered showers all week long.

Enjoyed the late afternoon outdoorsas the temp reached 81. Sat in the sun and listened to the ballgame. The w/e seies is tied 1-1. Rubber match is tonight on nat'l TV.

Civil twilight is 5:02 AM EDT. Night is 8:41 PM.

Sunrise: 5:35 AM. Set: 8:08 PM.

Length of day: 14h 33m. Length of visible light: 15h 39m. Tomorrow will be 2m 26s shorter.

The temp is 58° (14°C) with the high to be 79° (26°C). A 40% chance of rain for 5 days in a row.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning Ohyeah ::HUGS:: All the parts for my newest PC came yesterday. Yup, I build my own! I build pretty high performance systems and run them hard. It will take me a day or so to build and test to make sure all the hardware is running right. Then comes the part where I load the Windows 8.1 operating system and start loading all the software and then loading all the drivers for my varied hardware devices. IT will take a few days to load it all as I will check on the web for updated drivers and software. I really do enjoy this part of a new computer. Buying a preloaded system just introduces headaches for me as the manufacturers load crap into new systems that I do not want. This way I get a completely clean system with only the things I want on it.

Good morning ohyeah!

Nice to go outdoors check on my new annual garden section early yesterday morning and see that the smell of ammonia plus my scent works so well in 16 oz cottage cheese containers.

All sections of flowers have these containers. Have the lids right beside them to cover in the rain. Still have the rotten egg smelling Lowe's bought repellent plus bars of Irish Spring soap for those rainy times.

What super deals at Big Papa's Market. Bought unwaxed golden delicious apples 15¢s; ea, pears 3/$1, 1 lb of baby spinach $3, giant green leaf lettuce $1.18 ea, 10 oz of baby bella for $2.25.

Also purchased 1¼ lbs of green beans for $1.38, avocados for 75¢ ea, 2 lbs yellow onions $1.38, cukes 40¢, lemons 75¢, limes 5/$1, and 33.8 oz (1 litre) of evoo for $7.

Also shopped at WM for some small canned items and 8 lb bag of Epsom salts. Think it was $5.43. Have not eaten bread of any kind, even my usual multi grain, flat bread, or pasta in over 1 week. That in itself should lower my glucose.

No more pies and will limit pancakes and maple syrup. Will have a container of homemade lemonade well chilled in the fridge for the summer. Am a avid water drinker, one gallon each day.

Returned home to cook thick sliced mushrooms, yellow onions, red bell peppers, broccoli florets, julienne carrots, 36 cooked shrimp to the pound, mixed in homemade fried rice w/diced pork sirloin cutlet cubes.

Added evoo, 6 cloves, minced garlic and a pinch (1/16 of a tsp) of cayenne for some heat. My version of savory shrimp fried rice. Made enough for two remaining meals.

Went out and hand broadcast triple 10 fertilizer on every flower, plant, and the wildflower sections. Rain arrived then stopped mid afternoon 5.88" for July. It is a fabulous to give the plants and the soil a boast of triple 10.

Plan to add the epsom salts to the all the flowers and plants in a few days. Looks like the rain shall arrive this w/e. Thunderstorms along w/it for at least 5 days. Some areas likely to receive small hail.

In Red Sox baseball, Wednesday saw pitcher Felix Doubront sent to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later. The Red Sox and A's pulled off a blockbuster deal Thursday morning to swap All-Stars, Boston sending ace pitcher left-hander Jon Lester to Oakland for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

Thursday afternoon saw fellow All-Star pitcher and former starter John Lackey to the Cardinals. The Red Sox receive right-hander Joe Kelly and outfielder Allen Craig in exchange.

Gen Mgr Ben was screaming angry that the World Champions are in last place 12.5 games behind 1st place. The fans were as well. Sox host the Yanks for 3 at Fenway tonight & this w/e.

Civil twilight is 4:59 AM EDT. Night is 8:44 PM.

Sunrise: 5:33 AM. Set: 8:11 PM.

Length of day: 14h 38m. Length of visible light: 15h 44m. Tomorrow will be 2m 22s shorter.

The temp is 56° (13°C) with the high to be 80° (27°C) in clear skies.

Have a PCP visit at 9:30. Need to find out more in the Zio Heart Monitor results and others on the list.

Have a delightful day!
