51° here in Upstate NY this morning, it is raining lightly and we are to have some light showers for the day. The high temperature is to get up to about 70° today. It will be cooling off a bit for the rest of the week they say.

Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day, I got up to the gun club in the morning for a couple of hours. In the afternoon I got my car washed and cleaned inside. Today, well I will be back to the normal. This morning I have to talk to the person who wants me to do subcontract for a local Kraft/Heinz facility and then I will go from there for the rest of the day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning from Bartonville Texas. 62 and no rain, high is 82.
Weekend update from Adobe for InDesign made some significant changes to the way pages are added to a document. But they were not clear what the changes were. So the document I made yesterday with family album 2 pictures won't work.
Looking kinda like I need to start over.
I love computers and technology 🙁
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

morning all. 41 here with mid to upper 60s for today and tomorrow. But "breezy" with a storm coming in for Wed. and the rest of the week. Could get back into the teens at night! Guess maybe winter isn't over just yet!
Very nice day yesterday but got a call from the boss man that the packer was broke down. The bearings on the big front roller went out and the roller came off. New Holland service man brought out bearings and with the torch to cut off the old ones we got it going again. Quite a job!
Cleaned the stove pipe again, still trying to figure out why our stove smokes the house up so bad this year.
Didn't get time to shoot the creedmoor but did walk out back and shot a couple hand guns. 9mm and the 45 auto. Didn't shoot much but it was nice to get in a little trigger time!:D
Better get going on another long week. Have a great day and be safe.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Damwind is already blowing, 15 to 20 mph! Dirt will be moving before lunch time. We need moisture, badly!

good morning from FOGGY south central PA. It's 53º here with a gorgeous spring day on the way. Yesterday was nice but today will be nicer. Too bad I have to work. I got a lot of yard work crossed off the list yesterday. I trimmed all my fruit trees. I know I'm late, oh well. Picked up sticks all over the place. Push mower started on the first pull and I push mowed the back yard to knock down the weeds before they go to seed. Then I spread pre-emergent weed killer (corn gluten meal???) all around the front and back yards. Hope that crap helps. If nothing else it has fertilizer value.

Still got the crud in my lungs. Had a coughing fit last night so I went to the spare bedroom to sleep. Threw open the window to get some humidity in the house. It helped, along with a Tylenol PM.:rolleyes: Had a decent sleep after that kicked in. Woke up this morning to a gobbler going nuts. I'll have to get after them here in a few weeks.

Well, I better get busy. Prayers offered. Have a good one!

Charlie

Morning Gents! Its 59º and cloudy here headed for the low 70's. Theres a slight chance of rain late this afternoon and tonight and then its clear for a few days.

I got most of the electrical finished up in the kitchen yesterday. Hung a new light in the breakfast area, a fan in the kitchen, a light in the adjoining laundry room, pulled one new circuit into a new section of cabinets and put a few receptacles back together. I still have a set of curtains to hang in the dining room but I was nice and tired and I quit before I got to them.

If the replacement for the broken cabinet comes in this week they will get it installed, trim around it and do the back splash. Then I can put the receptacles back in and we will be through. Yeah!!!

I thinking I'll head to deer camp after while for a few days and see if I can kill a Turkey or two. I'm not very successful with Turkeys because I can't get around well enough to go where they are. But I kill one sometimes and I'll give it a try.

You'all have a good one.

Wr have rain showers in the sticks of Kentucky this morning. Thats wonderful for the grass in the hayfields and pastures.
I am on VACATION again! Judy Brown went home with Justin last night because she thought he was too tired to drive the 3 hour trip home after a day at the NASCAR race at Bristol. Did anyone watch it on TV? I doubt it and not many people watch it at the track either.
NASCAR is a dying sport, I'm sorry to say.

I'm not sure how Judy Brown is going to get home..
Oh yeah. I supposed to go get her. Ha! When? Ha! Don't know.!

The Skruske was moving a Big Rock last week; i have an interesting big rock as a Step Rock at Otis's house. Looks like the USA with Florida cut off....now if i can cut off California..
. It is limestone and only about 5 inches thick at the thickest point. Lots of fossils in it.



Here's that big rock, we don't want Otis to get his feet muddy would we? I pulled it in position with a tractor and had a lot of rocks under it so it wouldn't sink out of sight again.
Dean, that Packer repair job is over my pay grade, dirt wears out farm Equiptment real fast.
I still need to go sling out some hay for the Damcows and may do some more barn repair if it quits raining.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 64 in Louisville, going to 69. It rained some last night and will continue off and on through lunchtime.

I'm working from home today, which makes Monday much, much nicer. I don't miss the traffic. As for the computer "issues" others have mentioned, my current problem is getting a new wireless printer operating. At first it was a no go, and then for no apparent reason it worked fine for 2-3 days, then it went offline again and I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong.

Charlie, tell us more about how you'll use that new radar. Is that mostly so you can watch for approaching storms? Will it also keep you off a sandbar during a heavy fog, and things like that?

Today's the first day I've checked in since the middle of last week. We went to Paducah Thursday afternoon to visit my elderly mom. Then on Saturday, on the way home, we stopped in Evansville for 4-5 hours to check on Cindy's dad. He's continuing to decline and his wife was meeting with a hospice chaplain when we arrived on Saturday. Cindy drove back down and sat with him for a few hours yesterday, and I suspect that's the last she'll see her dad alive. Please keep the John Sallee family in your prayers, asking God to comfort them and keep John as pain free as possible.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe out there.

Prayers sent Mike. BTDT, not fun.:(

To answer your question, yes, mostly weather safety. I don't usually go out in bad weather, but you never know when it could pop up. Also for nighttime navigation safety. It should pick up buoys and small boats that could potentially be in my way in the dark.

Morning gang, 60 here in Ky, headed to 66. Another gloomy rainy day, but we need it soak the grass seed and fertilizer on the fields. Mike prayers sent for you and your wifes family, we all face that some day. Buff out!

Charlie, I was involved in installing some of the early consumer radar units. A customer bought one and brought it to our shop to install. I recall that if there was a problem it was probably related to a poor ground. I think we had to install a ground plate on the bottom of the boat to get things to work. I suspect they have improved a lot since then. I know it was frustrating until we figured it out .

Tom, one thing I learned a LONG time ago (we've had 8 boats in my lifetime) is that it's ALWAYS the ground. LOL It's usually the first thing I check. Sometimes it checks out fine and you dive into the other things it could be and hours later come back and re-do the ground and it fixes it!

It's still raining here and supposed to rain off & on until a week from Friday. We've had nearly 2" of rain in 36 hours. Which for an area that gets 15" annually that's a lot at one sitting. I'm starting a raft this afternoon just in case. Our seasonally creek looks like a stream now. One positive thing is it's well above freezing. :) Enjoy your day today.
