Guess I am going to have to start Guz up and risk getting thrown in the clink.

If I am going for good grocery shopping, got to go farther from home.

I am going to hoard canned tomatoes. And cheese. Let's see here. Cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella cheese, umm I know I forgot something.

Umm. Yeah! I went to Walmart and got my dog food.

I've got enough dog food to get us through this.

Chicken food was stocked up a long time ago.

Didn't know this crap was going to go down and was working for months to get the principle paid down on my house.

I was doing good!

Yet another hurdle to jump!

I'm game!

I am innocent!

Mister is the guilty party of hoarding TP.

He was already doing that before this situation we've got going on.

I've been using his already hoarded TP since I hooked up with him again!

He's always been good at stocking up on PT too!

Let's just say, if I was having to do all of the stocking of TP and PT, that would irritate me.

There are times when Joey's so determined to chase a cat (the cat 'badgering' the dawg by hanging outside the door which is blocked by a baby gate) and whining about it that I'd be happy to loan him out for awhile but his real mom who is wonderful about coming and taking him running for hours at least once a week probably wouldn't want to fly to Oklahoma weekly--jus' sayin'--ya' know?

I will accept a butt kiss every once in a while!



Does Joey have a brother? Preferably red?

I just want to borrow him.

I swear!

Ma --- Are you up early , OR , just have not ben to bed yet ?

Had a great evening last night ! That dang Alan j. ( Alan Jackson ) made me drink to many beers last night I DVR his concert from last week and last night was a good night to watch it - It was at Red Rocks ! Out Mel's way - I think that is a must go to place for me . Back in the day - we had seen Alan 2 or 3 times in concert , he always put on a outstanding show . And of course - Mr. B loved it ! When music is on , it's play ball time for him .

Some big decisions to be made today . Worked on it all last week , maybe a shift in what I plant and where , along with buying a new to me , grain drill to plant soybeans . Spent last week looking for one , One in Kansas and 3 in NB . Problem was they had to break it down to transport it here and the cost in trucking was 5 grand to get it here .

I did find one here in Indiana , but it is smaller than I want . Oh forgot , found the ideal one in Michigan , but the row spacing was wider than I wanted .

In changing may planting - then I need to adjust what seed I need - in my case that means getting less corn and adding beans - Talked to seed dealer first to see if seed was available before getting to deep into this , which he said we were good to go .

So , how are all you new to working at home getting along ? Kadin is a helper here - well , all of our Dobers have been great office help ! You should see some of the checks I have sent out - Some how , they manage to hit my hand when writing my name and then there is this line going off the check , funny part ? I have had to make some calls to where these checks end up , when they here it's me - the first thing they say is --- I see Kadin was helping you - lol

One last thing , We will be doing a first here mid week , A on line funeral Friends since childhood - class mates , neighbors and a farmer , passed away last week . What a tuff guy he was , Back 30 years ago , he had a aneurism in his head , he had to learn to walk again , and had to wear a brace on his leg + he had limited use of one arm , But he farmed on ! Another friend built a ladder that could be raised and lowered so he could get into his combine .

One time - he really got pizzed at me ! He needed batteries for his tractor , I told him I was going to Rushville and I would pick them up for him - these things were very heavy - When I got back - he was not there , So I put them in for him , right when I got done - he pulled in , he was upset with me ! He said I didn't need to put them in - he could have done it - He was full of ykw ! And he knew it , yet , he was going to prove he didn't need any help , May be why we were good friends all them years - we were both hard headed - lol

Kim and I were the last 2 from our Ag class days to still be farming ( there was 26 of us in that class ) and now --- I'm the last one


The cool thing was that Kim's Mom and my Mom were also classmates , so we really did grow up together - lol We had more than our share of good times

RIP ole Buddy , we are all so sad - yet the fun times will always be with us .
Sorry to hear about your friend, Kenny. Our high school class has a FB page and I dread seeing the notice when someone makes a new post there because 90% of the time, it's to announce that another one of our classmates has passed.

StrykersPerson What I want to know is, who let the virus loose?

Mister thinks it's a conspiracy, I think it was a warfare project gone bad.
03-30-2020 06:33 PM
StrykersPerson 148 confirmed cases of virus is OK.

17 deaths.

This is crazy!

And, they are targeting people with out of States license plates.

I am okay with that! I've got in State plates! Plus I don't go anywhere.

Lannie I know, I'm here in the middle of the day again, can you stand it?

Firstly, Ken, my condolences and sympathy. It sucks getting older. It's hard enough when actors and singers start dying, then it hits closer to home. I just lost my mother, a year ago today, in fact. We weren't that close, but still, she was my mom, so it hurts. Anyway, I hope you feel better.

I can't remember. But during my son's astronomy phase, I can remember him hauling me out to see....one of them and sorta babbling about the other. I hadn't really realized you could see that kind of thing just using binoculars. The other thing he had me look at was something or other in Orion?? Maybe that was a nebula. And a moon or two of Jupiter too.

He's hard to keep up with. If he's interested in something he's INTERESTED. So I get to hear about a lot of esoteric stuff, and try to understand at least some of them. The rest goes over my head--maybe because I'm not really listening to some of it.

One thing I really enjoyed was when we had a couple of big comets go by in almost the same year (I looked them up just now--Hale Bopp [1997] and Hyakutake [1996]). I can remember getting out and looking at them at about the same time each night--comets really do move across the sky--each day in a slightly different place.

I also remember going up into the mountains to try to see Halley's comet. So exciting to learn about it as a kid and think--I'm going to be alive when it goes by again. And then it was a bust. Oh well, the other two made up for it.

A couple of my bucket list things--to see a visible-with-the-naked-eye comet and a total solar eclipse. Both done. I can't think of another astronomical thing I'm still waiting to see.

The invented word thing is funny. I remember when I was a kid, I "invented" a word to say instead of "sh*t"--it sounded like that word, but wasn't really, so I felt like I could get away with it (What can I say, I was a LITTLE kid--some things seemed risqué and daring at that age.) Anyway, a good deal later I discovered what I was saying actually was a German word which meant the same thing. Of course, by that time, it wasn't such a big deal, but I do remember how funny I thought it was.
You're right, M22 IS in Saggy-tory. I mis-typed. I know where that is, it was M11 I "discovered." It's been a while, I got my numbers mixed up, LOL!

The Orion thing is M42, the Orion Nebula. Prettier in pictures, where you can see all the different colors. With the naked eye, you only see the whitish-green part, but it's still pretty cool when you think about how many new stars are being born in there.

And OMG yes, Hyakutake! I wasn't paying any attention to ANYTHING (astronomically speaking) when that came by, so I went outside one night to feed horses, and something caught my eye. I looked up and almost fainted with shock! How in the world could I have missed that before? It went almost all the way across the sky! Totally fabulous, and I'm sure I'll never see anything that spectacular again. Yowza!

I lived in Beaverton (Portland) during Halley's comet, and as usual, it was cloudy, so I missed that one, but Hyakutaki made up for it in spades. I was in Central Oregon by then, and the sky was crystal clear.

I stopped in to see them them late the other night , my girl wanted to see them , and i was shocked at the amount of mosquitoes that were around them. Is this something i should be concerned about moving forward? I keep them in a area where the overhead space is filled with Nepenthe "alata" which part of my pitch is that the pictures attracts and kills mosquitoes...I may have to rethink my adverbs when selling this one.
If they can catch them, the chicks will eat the mosquitoes. They do love bugs! Just include a free chick with each plant you sell. You don't have enough, you'd better order more chicks ASAP.

If it's any sort of consolation though--I remember all too well when I was in high school in Seattle and the chosen dj of the kids then liked to bitch and moan about the bad weather forecast--especially in the spring when every one was praying for really nice, really warm weather early in the year.

In my senior year along about March he announced that he could do a better job of forecasting by looking out the back door of the the station and telling you what it was doing and what he though it would be doing for the following 24 hours than the weather bureau.

So he started doing just that and keeping a log and between March 1 and May 31 he was definitely winning--by a lot. Every morning at around 7:00am he'd say--OK to whoever the technitions was I'm leaving and you'd hear these footsteps running--the tech would come on and say he was playing something or other for the next 3.75 minutes and then the dj would be back. So he'd play something and when it ended you'd hear more running footsteps and the dj would come on--panting--and say--"the forecast for today is rain--light to moderate until late afternoon with more rain overnight. Prediction for tomorrow light rain in the morning and sun in the afternoon."

He was right--he was a lot better at forecasting by looking out the back door and predicting based on the date and the fact that he'd lived in Seattle all his life.

After living in SoCal for a year, I could do the same thing there...

It's just luck of the draw for you guys in the midwest.

Naw, the fact of the matter is, the weather here is psychotic. Rich used to forecast weather for the Air Force, so he knows the "old school" methods of forecasting using maps and observations rather than a computer, and the weather here baffles him on an almost daily basis. One example that jumps to mind is wind and fog. SUPPOSEDLY, according to all the weather rules that apply everywhere else, when it's foggy, it's not usually windy. But here? There can be pea-soup fog where we can't even see the road from the house (it's about 50 yards) and wind blowing 40+ mph. Can you even IMAGINE how big the cloud must be to be moving that fast and still be foggy all day? Sometimes we have nonstop fog for two or three days in a row. It's crazy. But it's drier than Portland, I do have to say that. I'll take drier and crazy over consistently gloomy. (I know it's not ALWAYS gloomy and wet over there, but that's the part I remember most.)

Now for the farm report: Uh-oh, I just noticed the time, it will have to be a SHORT farm report. We got all 18 large square bales of hay today, and since we still had two, the hay room is stuffed to the gills, but THAT'S OK. I might be short on paper products, but by God, the animals will not go hungry. I did give the guy that cheese, by the way. The fan had dried the surface out sufficiently that it felt OK, so I waxed it while he was unloading the hay and gave it to him before he left. So he's happy, and I'm happy, and the cows (and Horus) are happy, and the sun is shining and it's (are you sitting down?) 69 degrees outside! Yes, there's still 5 inches (they increased it slightly) of snow in Thursday's forecast, but right now, this minute, it's like summer out there. The killdeer birds showed up this morning, and there's a green flush from new grass everywhere you look. It's beautiful.

Remember, last time they said we'd get "less than an inch" and we got 6 inches. Now it's 4 to 5 inches. I wonder how many feet it will actually turn out to be? Or maybe there won't be any snow at all. After all, the weather guessers usually guess wrong, so it could be anything. I don't know why we even HAVE a National Weather Service. They're useless, except to say what's happening right this minute (because they looked out the window, duh). Weather rant off.
