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.

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???

Didn't get much rain and no thunder. Glad. Still way too wet around here. Was able to stay on the deck through most of the passing without getting too wet. Talk about a quick change!
Strong SW all morning turned to NW in a flash. Still windy, but nothing like before. Sun bright in the west so enjoying a little sunset. Big temp shift as well. 15 degrees in 15 minutes!

Quoting RobDaHood:
Spanish moss at 90 degrees.

Squall line's coming...



That ran through Longwood a couple hrs ago also.
Fast and Furious for sure.

Hey YCD!
I always heard that your island was supposed to be the "warm" part of Canada. Please package any excessive snow and express it to RTLSNK. He gets all mopey-like when he doesn't get his white Christmas.

Me, I kinda like spending the holidays sitting in the shade sipping umbrella drinks.

Think it's about time to bring the cat in.

Still the morning after here Rob:
Eli's Comin'
Kinda foggy at about 3C., wet snow on the ground managing the light rain.

Good afternoon.

Ski,
You trying to tell me you didn't take a turn? I can't imaging you not taking the opportunity to show up the boys with your dart skills!

Numberwise,
Hello! Glad you enjoyed the tunes.

RTLSNK!
Now that Christmas is over, can you please stop wishing for snow?
Just brings wet chilly stuff!

Goofy,
Thanks for the heads up. Figured we'd get the skinny tail today. Actually it's been very nice out. Just a lot of gray clouds blowing by. Squall line coming though. Never know what it brings until it gets here.

Pottery,
Glad you are overseeing proceedings across the way. I know it's tough, but someone had to do it!

Crazy windy. Lake wind advisories today. Looking like 50 F tonight for a low. About 77 at the moment.

Merry Boxing Day Pott. Frozen stuff not hitting the ground here yet but 'overhead and all around'. You hang there abouts, this wave will make it over your head too.

Greetings, Ark-Crew.

Good too see that things are under control around 'ere.

Had a very good day yesterday.
Roast Goose, Seasoned Beef, Ham, with several bowls and dishes of stuff and whatnot.
The desert course was very good too, and there is loads of everything leftover for today, tomorrow and beyond.

So all's well up here in the Cold Regions. mid 40's today.

Y'all keep warm. I'm working on it!

Hi Arkers, just checking in, dinner and day was a real
hoot, 16 of us, 9 adults and 7 grandchildren.

Looks like it is going to be a noisy night around here.

Might be time for another piece of Chocolate Bourbon
Pecan Pie with ice cream! Had one for lunch, but that
was lunch don't you know, this is after dinner now. :)

I gotta laugh, the 3 brothers all 40 something, took the kids blow darts, made a target on the window inside and have been at it for ages. Beer was not involved but rum may have been a factor.

Got HALO 4 (XBox game) for Christmas from Angie.
If you guys don't see me for a few days, I'll be off saving the universe from evil aliens! Ummm. Actually if I'm not back in 48 hours, have Rick call Earl!

Angie's ham & all the other stuff was really good.

Hope you all had a great day.
Rest well.

Hey Goofy!
Hope you got that Vader thing straightened out. That was funny!

No problem Todd! We got the message.

Thanks Mass!

Whatever you do, don't click on Ski's Hippo song. Major brain worm! LOL

Late night Mass last night with all in attendance to listen to the angles sing. The BW is a tad horse this AM. Then a double recertation of Clement Moore's Twas the Night Before Christmas. The original version is much better. Then the kids were asleep and Santa's elves made an appearence. Kids were up at o530. Fun begins. Fortified with coffee and a version of home made toll house cookies with blueberries for chocolate chips, a snooze was in order. The roast is coming to room temp.

It looks nasty this PM for the I20 area from Texes to Florida and up the Apps to VT by tomorrow. Keep safe and Merry Christmas to all

Speak for yourself, Snake! 4-6 inches forecast here so far, and I wouldn't be surprised if that number went up! :P

Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except me and my mouse.

I'll be up really early,
the turkey to bake,
the potatoes to mash,
and the gravy to make.

Then its off to the in-laws,
the kids and the grands,
with family that traveled,
from far away lands.

But before I could slumber,
I had to stop by,
And say Merry Christmas,
And to all a good night.

Snake

I just realized it wasn't very nice to me to post my dear, departed Dad's recipe for the Best Hot Rum Punch Ever and not bring it over here. Believe me - it's good. It's best in cold weather, of course. We used to keep it in Mason jars in the fridge, and whoever wandered in from skating or shoveling or whatever could just heat up a cup and enjoy. Mmmmmmm....

Combine and boil for 10 minutes:
2 cups water
2 cups sugar

Add a dozen cloves, 2 sticks cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice
1 T lemon peel
1 T orange peel
1 T Canton ginger
2 T ginger syrup (or 1 more T ginger)

Cover and let stand 2 hours. Strain and add 1-1/2 c fresh orange juice, 3/4 c fresh lemon juice and one fifth of rum.

Just made it home in time, storm rolling down the
street as I type, had to run out for one last item
to roast the turkey with in the morning, the
roasting pan! LOL Couldn't find the turkey rack that
went in the one we have so I just bought a new one.
You watch, I'll find the other rack soon. :)

Boomers around, family coming over at 1330 hours,
time for a short nap.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL, HAVE A GREAT DAY!
