auuugggghhhh!!!!


stupid embed codes

I would encourage everyone to mail YouTube to make them available again and to mail WU to fix the compatibility issue.

That might happen next time Dr. J wants to post one in his blog header and can't?

The solution to cat vs tree: about 25' of 3/4" galvanized chain, neatly wrapped around the bottom of the tree and tree stand and covered with a tree skirt.

Able to withstand up to a ten-pound bundle of curiosity running at or near full speed (although ornaments remain a problem). Used successfully for ten years. ;)





I suppose.


And there's also a boot and the front door.

j/k :):)))

Hmmm...interesting idea Shore. I suppose one could epoxy the ornaments to the tree. Of course, then storage would be a problem.

Maybe if I hooked 25 ft of 3/4 inch chain to the cat and secured the other end 26 ft from the tree.

I wonder...what if a fella were to get one of those fake trees with the metal in the limbs and wire it up to an electric fence controller...
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33532
Yeah, Pottery, we had the same thing happen.
Even tied to the wall, the cat just thinks its better for climbing.

Angie has a lot of heirloom ornaments, very pretty, very old.
We don't dare put them up.

Anyway...simple is good.

That's the spirit Pcola!
Don't bump your head up there.

A couple years ago, Angie bought some of those little grocery store mini Christmas trees after Christmas. Re-potted them.

So this year we're having a live 4 ft Norfolk Island pine as our tree. She'll probably hang a few decorations in the living room.

The cat and fancy Christmas decoration seem incompatible.

LOL, we had a cat that climbed to the top, and the entire caboodle came crashing down.
Broke most of everything

Aren't cats sweet ?

They say that dogs have masters.
And cats have staff.

What are you 2 doing up this early on a Sunday morning?

Yeah, really noisy in here this am!


Snake, release? Really?
Nail them suckers to the trees around the perimeter as a warning to their relatives. When they dry out, they make good jerky treats for Igor.

Really though, you need to head down to your favorite toy store and get yourself a pair of NVGs. Go ahead and spring for the White Phosphor ones. They are just like black & white TV instead of green. Much better for depth perception.

You'll also need a couple crossbow pistols.

No more Mr. Nice Guy!

Coffee's done. Back later.

Morning Ylee, morning Pottery!

Woke up at 0430 hours, been wandering around since.

Mice are fine, just use them to catch snakes. :)

Put one in the landscape area around the house and
follow them around until one of the Copperheads gets them,
then take the Copperhead way out into the woods.

Sort of a catch and release program. Little tough on the mice though. :)

That mouse wasn't being used for experiments, was it, ghost snake? That poor owl could wind up hooting in Spanish or stealing apple fritters! :)

Snake walks quietly around checking the Ark, all secure.

Dog looks up, snake flips him a big hunk of cheese.

Dog loves the ghost who brings him cheese.

Owl watches the ghost fade back into the shadows.

Snake flips the owl a white lab mouse.

Owl loves the ghost who brings him mice.:)

And now for a recap of the day, my Loch now has rockets and mini-guns, ycd is going accross the border to buy herbs, Shep is building androids, Rob and Angie have a Colonel coming over for dinner, Skye plays the flute, Pottery is smoking basil, Shep has a receipe for guaky moles, and Shore is a pirate, well, she did sound like a pirate: AAARRRGGG.

Gee, I never had moles for dinner, I guess they are
easy to catch being blind and all. :)

There are some very strange people that hang out here you know.

Rain finally slacking off.
Sure we got at least 2 inches.
Someone forgot to tell Ma Nature that it's the dry season!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33532
Sounds pretty tasty Shep!
Thanks!

Here ya go...hope I got it right!

Getting a little rain here at the moment. Nice!

Guess we don't get a guacamole recipe today. :o(


ooops :)

All ingredients cold.

Hollowed out small Italian tomatoes.
Avocado/salt/onion/cucumber/tomato hearts/black olive/...Tiger Sauce optional :) especially if you have a cold beer.

Stuff tomato hulls and eat immediately before anyone else sees them. Also good if you have some fresh cold green tomato hulls.

Great finger food while you're walking out the back door headed to the fishin' hole. And it's also great served with the fresh fried Blue Gill you're about to catch...if there's any left when you get back.

...sweet nora

Scarborough Fair is still one of my favs to play on flute.

Hey Skye!
Didn't know you played. Awesome. A girl I used to play with played flute on a few songs that we did. Color my world, a zeppelin tune that escapes me at the moment, etc. Added a lot more to the music than her $10K synth and sample rig ever could.

LOL to that !!

On an entirely different topic (!??) I read this week a very well-put argument from Richard Branson (Virgin Air) suggesting that it really is pointless to keep grass illegal.
Billions spent, thousands of otherwise innocent young people in prison, etc etc. with absolutely no benefits at all.

I read it on BBC or CNN, cant remember. 2 or 3 days ago

EDIT, just looked back a few days. Maybe they moved it.........


Branson was on maybe Letterman saying that the other night.

I'll do some screen caps and add to the tutorial soon along with hints about what to watch out for to avoid problems. Pics make it much easier to explain.

Yum.

As for me, I told Angie if she doesn't feel like cooking to pick up a bucket of the Colonel's finest.

Maybe I'll make fire tomorrow but today...just kinda coasting.

Have big fun with Princess Amy and Pyrate King Alex.


Yep.
I will cook some this evening.
Good stuff.

Nice shower coming down again.
Lots of mud outside. When Alex leaves, some of it will be inside too.....

Pott, why don't you get a commercial mixer with a big dough hook for your clay?

Then you can skip the sweaty and tired part! :)

What ! And be left with just the dirty old man part ?
OK. I guess that's fine actually. :):))

As Hood said, a pug mill would do the thing. Had a nice one in the old workshop, but it finally died...
A 'mixer' wont do it, the idea is too de-air it and knead it until most of the microscopic particles are sweetly lined up.
Then your clay becomes real nice to work with.

Expecting son and Alex&Amy in a few, so I have to get busy. Not that I wasn't you understand.

Also had to show the Visitors how to light the "coal-pot" which an oldtime small BBQ pit that burns coal (and cedar chips for flavour).
They bought some nice Carite in the market, and have been scrounging around the garden looking for 'erbs' to season it with.

I showed them the cilantro, the lemon grass, the spanish thyme, but did not introduce them to my 'erb bush......

Laters then>>>>>>>>>>

Shep and Shore,

I ran into several of those with no old embed code the last couple days. I don't know a work-around.

could probably take the embed code from another vid and change the video code (it's in two places in the old embed code) then post that. Not sure...would have to experiment, but it's a long way around to accomplish what should be a simple matter.

Just tried to embed a youtube video and I can't find any way to use the old embed code. Apparently WU still isn't allowing iframes.

Is there a workaround?

You can buy a pug mill that wedges and de-airs the clay, but then Pottery has all that extra time and energy to get into trouble. Plus...you can buy a whole lotta rum and aspirin for what they cost.


Pottery,
Shouldn't you let the tourist do that?

Morning Arkers!

Smoking kingfish, well, couldn't be any worse than some of the cigars I've smoked in my lifetime. Matter of fact, I'd probably prefer to smoke it than eat it. Don't care much for seafood in the first place. :)

Hey Pottery, how about using a small concrete mixer?
Don't know much about clay myself, except I have 16 inches of Georgia Red Clay under my yard. Want any of that?

Love that helicopter video Rob! My favorite chopper was the little Loch. Thought about buying one but the price is a little prohibitive. :)


(Why do we even hang out with him. Oh, yeah...all we gotta do is keep him stocked with appler fritters, coffee, and pepsi and he stays out of the good stuff.)

Good Morning Rattler!
Was beginning to wonder if you'd gone dark again.
