Welcome to The Ark

If you need to get away from all the "end of the world" hullabaloo, well, what better place to hide than an Ark?

Hang out, play some music, have a cookie, some eggnog, or maybe some grog. Be ready to celebrate that we're all still here!


The tutorial for the Youtube code generator is now in Post 7 and 8 of The Ark help files. The link to the generator is now in the right column in my links section here.

Please read the tutorial. It's really easy once you know what to and not to do.

Enjoy!





Here is a link to the previous blog.

If it's textured, I recommend bleach and a toothbrush, but only if you're sober! :)

Morning 32 F here and no snow. Skies were clear last night. Helped put a chill in place. Right now the moisture is moving up the coast, the temps above are mostly below 32 and we wait. The birdies will clean out the worms in a flash Pott. It will be like ice cream. eh.

OH...Hey Pottery.
Was just over at Sandi's blog explaining about how you took the rain to England.

Just can't escape "the list" can you!
Strange that...

Yeah, strange how the list follows us about.
I need one of those 'list eradication devices' that I heard about one time.
But I gather that it means I will have to employ 42 people for 24 years, or something. And burn all the pens and paper in the house.

Pretty drastic stuff.

Good Morning !
Damp and windy, around 50F, so no really cold days as yet.
Maybe we'll get home before the next Artic Blast.

Today we head back to london Town. But first Lady Pott has to complete the painting of a small chair she bought for Kate.
It now has her name in Irie colours, surrounded by tropical flowers and 2 little birdies.

I have to hang a heavy thing on a wall.....

But first, some breakfast is in order.
It's 10:21, dont you know.

Yessir!
Rain, a great big red L, and general troughiness.
Reckon I'd better check the bilge and be ready to man the pumps.
Wettest dry season I've seen in 30 years...

Looks like the kids might be inside a lot today.
Best get some more sleep.

Hey R.E.D.

She'll love that! Toshiba makes a pretty nice machine.
It's more like a terrasaur. Don't feed it after midnight!

Hi Arkers!

SugarBear has been using my laptop since last night when her laptop gave up its processor or something. Went to BestBuy today and bought her a new Toshiba with a 17.5 inch screen. She said it has a terrabyte.

Is that sort of like an overbyte? heh heh heh

Been raining since just before sunset.
Still raining.
Looks like it will keep raining for a while.

Just what I don't need.

Free water to anyone who needs it.
BYOB.

Had a good time w/the kids.
One niece just back from teaching in Costa Rica. All she had to play down there was an electronic keyboard. Couldn't wait to get her hands on the Yamaha Grand. Plays like an angel.

Wish you guys could've heard it.

Quoting pottery:

True, that.
But we had a most Sucessful shopping trip this morning.
A knapsack for son, new treckers for Lady Pott, and a Particularly fine pair for me, too.

They are all shiny and new. But give them a few weeks back home in the mud, mire ,manure and muck and they'll be fine ! They have no idea wot's coming at them, poor things.

The young fellow in the shop, when he learned that we walk in water, suggested waterproof models.
He couldn't quite grasp the concept of "water" until I explained to him that 'water' meant 'up-to-the-neck', and that a waterproof shoe meant that you could never get rid of it.

Anyway, all's well. Except that Baby Kate woke at about 2 am and proceeded to have a proper oldtime Howl. And after that I found it difficult to return to sleep. Probably because I could'nt find any apple fritters.......


Just get back home before you loose your tan, dude.
You know how that excites me.

Good Morning!
(barely)

Well, this is the day of the big family Christmas party.
Brother, Sister, respective spouses, and a whole herd of younglings will converge shortly.

Figured I oughta say hello while I have a chance. Once all the assorted Nooks, Iphones, Ipads, laptops, and gaming devices log on, I might not have any bandwidth left for myself. Likely a bunch of new devices will be lining up begging for the network name and key. How did we ever survive without constant updates from our friends?

Anyhow, sure to be a good time and lots of good eats. Hope you all have a happy Friday!

Really, the guys are great, but really happy to see more of the grrllzz dropping in. The Ark is not the same without them!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33553
ZOO!!!!

Really great to see you too!
Have seen you pop up sporatically a few times, but miss you.
Looking forward to having you around more!
Christmas was good. Hoping the holidays are treating you well!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33553
So I have to admit that I've been gone so long I didn't realize the ark was back. Use to be a favorite place to hang out!

Thanks for the music, and hope everyone has had a good holiday! Hopefully this year I will be around more, and get to share with old friends.

Aloy,
After reading your post, I feel honored that you took the effort to post here as I sense that all is not well. Please send me a WUmail if you want letting me know what's going on with you.

Prayers and good thoughts to you tonight!

Happy Holidays to you as well!

I'm as fine as can be expected. The onehanded typing on a full sized keyboaard couldn't even keep up with the half-a-brain thought process. Took 3 days to get the new anti-cat, small keyboard wotking, the joys of being a semi-literate computer user. Same brain, same typos. Have yet to master the new coffeemaker. Season's Greeting y'all!

Okay.
RTLSNK. Ever been to Israel? Snow not often an issue there. Yes, it does occasionally snow in the higher elevations, including Bethlehem, but from what I can tell on average it snows about 3 days a year in Bethlehem. Why am I telling you this?

So you can stop wishing for a white Christmas! You see, snow probably has nothing to do with Christmas!

All you are accomplishing with all this wishing is making my toes cold! Stop...please!

LOL

And yes, Ylee is correct...I think.

Happy Shopping Pottery!

Hey Pottery!
Looking at the Sat photos, seem to have stopped raining at your house.

You can go home now!

Indeed !
Spoke to the troops there yesterday.
They say it's been Incessant. But they hope to do some Beaching today.

Heading out to the shops again today here. Did my bit for the British economy yesterday. Everything is 50% off, so instead of 1 pair of shoes, I bought 2 pairs. That way, I can wear a different style on each foot. Cool, eh ?

Today I need another pair (like Imelda, I am )but this time they are for walking up mountains, down rivers, and through swampy bogs.

I see that the weather in places there is Dread. Heading toward Snakeymon ?
Well, if I recall, he asked for it. Something about freezing the worms to death, I think.

Yep :) the sun's out over here on the Corridor also.
Breezy, cool with a few high cirrus clouds trying to figure out where home is.:)


BTW...my daughter told me to "shut up and get used to it" with Win8.
Is that even "legal" in Fla now???
