Good Morning rasmataz,
Agreed. If I see a bear in my garbage, I'll watch thru the window.

#7 Elephant ears signify species.

Two elephant species have been recognized in the Animal Kingdom: Asian and African. Besides originating from different parts of the world, one way to distinguish between the two is to take a closer look at the size of their ears. African elephants have larger ears that are shaped like their native continent. Meanwhile, Asian elephants’ ears are smaller because they don’t have to battle the heat like their African counterparts (elephants can flap their ears to cool off).

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Good Morning rasmataz,
I keep hearing that yesterday was the busiest day at the PO. I went, but only in the back door to my PO box so I know not how many folks were in line. That made for a LONG day for you.

#6 Brown bears can be black and vice versa.

Don’t be fooled by the color of the coat! Despite their names, black and brown bears come in many different shades, often depending on the range and region of the subspecies. The best way to tell them apart would be to have one chase after you in the wild. If it follows you up a tree, you’ve got a black bear on your tail. If it just knocks the tree over, it’s a brown bear. (We seriously don’t recommend trying this.)

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

We were one person short today at the Post Office because her dad had a heart attack and passed away. We were extra busy, also with all the mail. I worked from 4:30 AM to 5:30 PM with only a little over an over off for lunch. Hopefully, it will not be so busy tomorrow.

Good Morning rasmataz,
At least you don't have to work all day on Sunday.
Did you know that cjs from OK works at the PO? I message with him every day, or maybe I should say when he makes it in. He works a lot of OT.

Your Sunday movie is entitled, Christmas Long Ago. The song performed by Daniel O'Donnell is also entitled, "Christmas Long Ago."
If you recognize the movie, it's a rerun from 2011.
It's presented to us by Steve Politte.

Reminisce as you watch and listen.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Good Morning rasmataz,

I figured you've been working a lot. Please take care of yourself the best you can. You can't keep up that pace forever. I know, it should slow down after Christmas.

#5 If you can count the humps on a camel, you can spell out the species.

Dromedary camel
Bactrian camel

What’s a camel to do with their humps? First things first, camels don’t store water in their humps. If that were the case, Bactrian camels would have the advantage of an additional hump to hydrate themselves or their human travelers. Now jot this one down: B is for Bactrian, and D is for dromedary. If the letter “D” were laying on it’s flat side, it would resemble the single hump found on dromedary camels. Following that logic, I’m sure you can figure out “B.”

Have a Fantastic Friday

Clicky15 - thanks for stopping by.

TT - thanks for the picture links. The storm you are having will be coming our way on Sunday, at least part of it will be here.

I, probably, am not getting enough sleep. Definitely, not as much as the experts say one should get. Working about 30 hours per week at the Post Office and about 20 hours, this week, for UPS. Crossing guard has been nearly impossible to do. Since I am working every morning, I cannot do the morning time and, with working some afternoons, I can only do some of those crossing times. Because of that, I will be quitting the crossing guard when the semester is over, doing the times that I can until then. School where I do crossing guard goes until 12/19.

How many total hours are you working between both jobs?
Are you able to get enough sleep?

Quite a storm we're having on the coast.

Here is a photo of the sea gulls that Ken Gagne captured just ahead of the storm.

...and another that Ken has titled, standing on the corner watchin’ all the “gulls” go by… This photo was taken in south county.

I am still working both jobs, but will not have to work quite so many hours at the Post Office. I will be only doing the closing on alternating days instead of every day, since I have been trained on it now. That should help me be able to get though better.

Good Morning rasmataz,

Update on the crabbing. That is a photo of Winona J heading in with pots on the fantail.

Here is a close up of the crabs.

From the article on the county web site.
Four days into the 2014-15 crab season and a lot of fishermen are getting more crabbier than crab. They’re harvesting huge crabs but not in any great numbers. What’s normally 15-20 crabs to the pot, are coming up at 3 to 5 to a pot. Crab prices today hovered around $3.35 a pound with the likelihood that it’ll go lots higher if the catch trends continue. And they probably will.

From Astoria (this is on the north coast) down to Coos Bay (on the south central coast) it’s the same story. Big crabs but far fewer in number. Fishermen say it’s the cycle of the sea. One remarked, “We’ve been having banner years the last ten years. Ocean conditions just changed on us.”

One long-time observer of commercial fishing off the Oregon Coast said “The crabbers will make money this season, but not so much they can go out and buy a new pickup or any other big purchases. So the effects will be felt in our local economy.” But he quickly added that there’s a lot more fish in the sea and other fisheries will be opening up after the first of the year.

Have a Merry Monday!

I read in MT's home how much you have been working, a lot!

Thanks for the follow up info about your kids and choir.

Your Sunday movie is entitled "If We Make It Through December." The song of the same title is sung by Merle Haggard.
The video is presented by Steve Politte.

There is no text so you can listen and also enjoy the graphics in this shorter movie.

Both my kids made it to the second round of tryouts, but were not selected for the state group. My daughter had tried out for the regional and state choir and she was selected for the regional one. That concert has already taken place.

Good Morning rasmataz,
I wouldn't think you could keep up both very long, either, especially when you don't have regular hours. Please do what you need to to get enough sleep so you stay healthy.

Whatever happened with the kids and their choir tryouts?

The next full moon is the "cold Moon" appearing Saturday at 7:27AM EST.

The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

Let us know if this one is visible Saturday morning where you live.

It's Friday, make it a Fantastic one!

Have not had much time on the computer as I have been working a lot lately. About to quit and get ready for bed. I had already been working for UPS and started a job with USPS (United States Postal Service) this past Monday with training/orientation. Have worked at my station for 2 days now and it is usually pretty busy. I go in at 5 am and leave around 10 or 11 and then come back to help close for the day around 2:30 or 3. Unfortunately, I do not yet have a regular schedule and it seems that they rotate some of the weekend shifts. Will find out more over the next week or so. I have worked in between times with UPS, but don't think I can keep that up very long, my body is protesting all the time on my feet and my back is not liking the extra time moving packages.

Good Morning rasmataz,

On December 1st, Conrad and Tasul celebrated their 30th birthday.

Conrad is the oldest male polar bear in any North American zoo or aquarium — and could be the oldest in the world, according to Nicassio-Hiskey.

"The median life expectancy for polar bears is 20.7 years for males and 24.2 years for females, so 30 is considered quite elderly both of them," she said. "You'd never know it to look at these two though — they're still very playful, especially in cooler weather."

Conrad and Tasul were born Dec. 1, 1984, at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, S.C. and arrived in Portland in 1986. Although they are both doing well, animal-care staff have been monitoring them closely for several years and treating them for a variety of age-related ailments.

Polar bears have been designated as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, and the World Conservation Union's Species Survival Commission has reclassified the polar bear as a vulnerable species and placed it on its Red List. The Red List identifies species facing a high risk of global extinction.

A belated Happy Birthday to Conrad and Tasul.

Enjoy your Thursday!

Good Morning rasmataz,

#2 animal fact:

There is no such thing as a poisonous snake.

"Contrary to pop culture and older versions of Encyclopedia Britannica, snakes are venomous, not poisonous. If they were poisonous, touching or licking a serpent would be the more appropriate fear than death by snakebite. And that’s even debatable, since statistics show that out of 7,000 to 8,000 snakebites per year in the U.S., only 5 or 6 are fatal. Call it semantics, but the truth is only 10 percent of the 3,000 species of snake are venomous, meaning they inject toxins into their prey (biting or stinging). The difference is skin deep."

Who likes crab?

Photo taken by Ken Gagne posted on the county web site of the first crabbing boat, waiting 3 days early for the opening of crab season today, Dec 1st.

From the article:

"It can’t be much fun out there with gale force winds and the constant pounding waves. But they’re out there waiting for Monday, 9am, December 1st when they can hit the “go” buttons on their winches and pull up what the Chinese REALLY like the most about America – their crab. Demand for fresh crab in China is huge which is likely to keep prices internationally high. Great news for crabbers."

Your Sunday movie is, "The Best Days of My Life." It is shared by Gregory M. Lousig-mont.

The movie is on youtube, and like last week it's repeated meaning that it is NOT 5:18 minutes, but IS 2:38 minutes in length.

This movie is a reminder for all of us to give thanks for all we have, not to dwell on what we don't have.

Up late tonight as I had to finish studying for my Sunday School lesson in the morning. However, my daughter advised us tonight that she did not think that she was Baptist and was leaning toward being atheist. She heard of a book she wants to read, "There is a God: How The World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind" and I have been looking for it online. Found a link to it on Amazon and a review of it at creation.com. I am skeptical about it, but we may get it anyway. Prayers are much appreciated as we work with her on this.

Long day delivering packages at the mall today with UPS. The driver says they are planning on running a normal load on Friday. Probably will be hectic inside the mall, so don't look forward to those deliveries that require going into the mall. However, if all the drivers and helpers are there we can knock it out quickly.

Just in case you don't return for another couple days, Happy Thanksgiving.

Pro Football Turkey.

The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout. Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, "You're terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I'll see to it that you get a huge bonus."

"Forget the bonus," the turkey said, "All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?"

Good Morning rasmataz,
As an observer that would be my choice, but I don't have all the facts available to me that you have.

Enjoy your last week "off" before orientation begins.

Your Sunday movie is Be Thankful, author, unk.

This movie is a good one for Thanksgiving or for ANY time of the year.
I know I have used it before so it may be familiar to you.

Also, you will see that it says 5:23 minutes, but it's NOT. It is repeated so when you get to the frame that says "Give Thanks," at about 2:38 minutes you have seen it all.

May you be blessed as Thanksgiving approaches.

Good Morning rasmataz,
You are so right. I'm surprised no one else picked up on it.

Have you made a job decision?

Concluding the week with another blonde smile.

Job Opening

A blonde walks into the police department looking for a job. The officer wants to ask her a few questions....

Officer: What's 2+2?

Blonde: Ummmmm... 4!

Officer: What's the square root of 100?

Blonde: Ummmm... 10!

Officer: Good! Now, who killed Abraham Lincoln?

Blonde: Ummmm... I dunno.

Officer: Well, you can go home and think about it. Come back tomorrow.

The blonde goes home and calls up one of her friends, who asks her if she got the job. The blonde says, excitedly, "Not only did I get the job, I'm already working on a murder case!"

TT - somebody's math is off for the November year in review (I suspect you copied it from somewhere else). 120 hours is 5 days.

The postal service is permanent after 90 day probation period. UPS is only temporary, but could go until January 15 until it is over.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Is the job with the postal service guaranteed after training?
Which one, do you know, gives you the best chance of being kept on after Christmas? There is a lot to consider, isn't there?

A Blonde's Year In Review concludes;

October - Hates M &M's because they are so hard to peel.

November - Baked a turkey for 4 days because the instructions said 1 hour per pound and she weighed 120.

December - Couldn't call 911 because there was no "11" on any of the phone buttons.

Happy Thursday!

TT - liked September's review - the capital of Oklahoma would be "O."

Was processed with the Postal Service today and will have orientation classes December 1 & 2. Not sure of my hours with them, so not sure what to do about UPS and crossing guard.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Good point. Think about the homeless. Oh my.
I thought about you yesterday. I came home and a pkg had been delivered. I don't know if it came UPS or Fed Ex. Was some blank video tapes from Amazon.

TT - yes, it is cold here, but even colder up north, so I won't complain too much. I am thankful that I have a home to come to that is heated, clothes to help keep me warm, etc. Year in review is interesting, thanks for sharing.

High is forecast to be 45° today and slowly warming up into the weekend. The 30-year average for our area is about 60°.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Brrrrrrr!

A Blonde's Year in Review continues:

May - Couldn't make Kool-Aid because 8 cups of water won't fit into those little packets.

June - Couldn't learn to water ski because she couldn't find a lake with a slope.

Have a Totally Terrific Tuesday!

TT - no school today, the roads were still slick in spots at 10:00 when my wife went to work.

High was above freezing today and will be even warmer tomorrow, but the low tonight will still be 20° or below.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Sounds like an ol* fashioned family time and I like it.
Funny that yesterday I was thinking of all the board games I have, some going back to when I was a kid. We/I played them a lot with my kids...before computer and even with the grand kids...before computer. When I die, I know what will happen to them all, trash.

Is there school today? The answer to that will tell me your morning weather.

A Blonde's Year in Review

January - Took her new scarf back to the store because it was too tight.

February - Couldn't work in a pharmacy because the bottles wouldn't fit into the typewriter.

March - - Got excited when she finished a jigsaw puzzle in 6 months because the box said "2-4 years."

Have a Marvelous Monday!

TT - thanks for the movie.

Started snowing here about the time we left to go to Sunday School at church. The snow got heavier and the pastor decided to not have our morning worship service or tonight, so we left after Sunday School and went to my mother-in-law's church for the rest of their service. Went to her house after for Sunday Dinner (our usual thing for Sundays) and then stayed and played a game of spades with my sister-in-law, my wife, and my daughter. The snow is ending now, so there will not be much more coming down. The ground is warm enough that the snow is not sticking much to the roads and will mostly melt except on bridges and overpasses. However, this could lead to black ice on the roads in the morning plus ice on bridges, etc. School is questionable tomorrow, but I think it will not be cancelled for us.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Thanks for sharing about your day. Good luck to your son.

Your Sunday movie is "The Family Bible," from Steve Politte.

The song is also The Family Bible and it is sung by Daniel O'Donnell.
It it sounds familiar it is a repeat from 4 years ago.

If you have good memories, and who doesn't, I hope this movie will remind you of them.

Have a Blessed Sunday!
