Solstice Solace

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.

You know...I was thinking.
Maybe when Hulk gets rid of the copperheads he can tell you what to do about those pesky raccoons.
Member Since: December 31, 1969 Posts: Comments:
Yep! That's sweet.
A Snakeymon in training to be sure.

Although at his age, you probably were chasing girls with snakes!

Yes, matter of fact, you have that ESP thing working
again I see. He brought a big stick from his house, he
said he would protect Grandma from snakes in the garden
with it. So they went out into the veggie garden and
he proceeded to bang the stick on the sides and poke
it inside the thick leaves and stuff makeing sure there
weren't any snakes in there that would bite her.
Is that cute or what?

Hey RTLSNK, Hulk teach you any new tricks today?

Hi Barefoot! Thank you for your kind words.

"Patrones of the Ark", gee, that has a nice ring to it. :)

"Ranger My Shoulder Hurts Zumba Fritter Fling" WOW
Thats even longer than Spongebob Square Pants Ranger Rick.

Of course we could shorten it to "Fritter King". :)

Hello, Patrones of the Ark.
Just wanted to thank Robda for being brave enough to stop in my blog last eve and write a funny comment. Also, RTLSNK, I liked the poem you posted at shore's.

For all of you a big
:)))))))))

You are always welcome here my shoeless friend.
I figure if you can't say something smart, say something funny.
Sometimes it actually is funny.

Thanks!

ROFLMAO!

That was so good there's nothing I can follow it with!
Bravo!

Yeah, Pottery, that time of day. Got some beef tenderloins to go on the grill. Will be headed out there directly.

I'm thinking light rum, about the same amount club soda, a splash of OJ and a lime slice. For starters anyway.

Yep, I'm prepared to pay a dollar to see that!

Work is done for today.
There is a spagetti con carne sauce bubbling on the stove, (not cooked by me) and it's getting close to cocktail time (mixed and served by me).

What'll you have?

Hey, 'Snake, I'm just trying to give you incentive to excercise.

Of course, if you'd rather Zumba...

I seem to remember a female plumber that Rob found for
us some time back but I forgot to place her website in
my Favorites Section. She was very good with "tools"
if I remember correctly. :)

Many moons ago Pottery rather than throw perfectly good large bath towels out simply because they weren't as brightly colored as they had been at first, I began placing them under the kitchen sink, and the bathroom sinks. They provide a first line of defense against leaks from faucets and water lines. Just requires you to look under the sinks with a flashlight every now and then without having to stand on your head. LOL

Sounds like a better plan than mine.
Which was, to have someone else stand on my head.
It did't work, for some reason.
Maybe it was the stilletto heels?
Still trying to figure it out.

Wow, between the banana nut bread and the Swedish Bikini Team video SugarBear may never let me talk to you again! :)

Of course I could always watch it on Tues and Thur when she goes to her Zumba class. :)

And Fri when she goes to her sewing class. :)

yeah, I hate that job too Pottery.

Could be a long process. The way your weather has been lately, the drip could be originating from the roof. I hope not.

Got it sorted.....

Was between the sink-body and the counter (conc. with tile), so when you splash water onto the counter is oozes it's way under.
Took out the silicone sealer as best I could, and resealed.

Lunch time here >
Good thing too, I'm hungry.

Almost lunch time. Halfway through the week.
Not looking forward to tomorrow though.
Gotta drive to Tampa.

Yep!
If you're gonna eat apple fritters you're gonna have to exercise.
What you need is one of those tv screens for your treadmill that shows the Swedish bikini team jogging along in front of you. Helps keep you motivated.


That would do it for me too !

But I agree with Snake.
Nothing is as good as working in a garden for all-round stuff.
Lifting kegs of ale is good too, of course.

The worst thing of all, (and some people around here may disagree), is standing on your head in a very small space, trying to find where exactly the drip that is dripping under the kitchen sink is coming from.
Have a hair-dryer in there now, trying to dry everything out, so I can start at the top AGAIN !

For some strange reason, Lady Pott does not approve of the container under there that needs emptying every couple of days.....
I cant imagine why. Peculiar, that.

BAH and HUMBUG.

Morning Arkers!

I kid around a lot about working in the yard and
gardens but the truth is lifting and slinging 40 lb
bags of mulch and compost bags every spring and fall
keeps me in good shape. I have a nice SOLE F63 treadmill
but quite honestly walking for an hour on the thing is
boring as hell and is great for cardio but doesn't burn
a lot of calories. 4 pallets with 60 bags per pallet
keeps me busy for two months in the fall and spring
and the other 8 months I work out with 5 lb and 10 lb
dumbells and situps and legups.

If I didn't work out I'd weigh 300 lbs. :)

There is no reason RTL can't have his cake ea bread. Why not find some kids at the pool hall or Smartmart and have them transfer pallets of pigeon poop and shredded bamboo shoots and leaves to the shaloo gardens. That way he can do the layabout eh layout work and every one is happy.

If that's the case, Pott should've been rasslin' kegs around! He'd be stout as an ox then! :)

Morning Pottery,
Yeah, too much time sitting around English pubs hoisting ale will do that to a fella.

Next time, use one of those big German stoneware steins that weighs about 5 lbs empty. Helps maintain muscle tone while goofing off.

Good Morning !

Awoke with a very painful triceps on the right arm this am.
Spent a long time weilding a cutlass yesterday in the bushes.

Seems that I'm out of shape, eh ?
Bah !!

About ready to shut down for a while.
Need sleep.
Wish me luck.

Angie goes in late tomorrow so hopefully I won't be up early.

Rest well folks.

Hi Arkers!

Just checking in, the small group Bible Study Sugar Bear and I used to go to on Tuesday nights has been changed to Monday nights this year so I'll be back about this time on Mondays from now on.

Wow, cooking in a garbage can, sort of a dual purpose unit I must say. :) Rather handy after dinner too!

Hey Pottery, see the Ark above? It has a camera in it.
When you click on the blog it can see you, you might
want to put some more clothes on the next time you
show up here ok?

heh heh heh
