Damn it! Where are my drum sticks and brushes?

I can't play Scrabble with Mister. That would require a dictionary to prove him wrong, and I can't find it. Besides, he ran to his He Shed.

Works for me!

I feel a little like the Mayor of New York City when he was trying to make sense out of Trump's announcement about maybe fully quarantining ALL of New York City.

What do you mean Denny--I don't understand what you are talking about.

Hey Aunt B!

Stop badgering me!

I am off work "no paycheck" and self quarantining.

What more do you want from me?

I think Joey needs to come check out Oklahoma!

Can I borrow him for about four weeks?

SP- No Drumsticks, No Problem!

Spoon lady is great! I noticed she doesn't use a spoon holder rig.
I almost posted same video last night...We were thinking alike when we saw SP's spoon picture.

Here's a spoon playing tutorial video. He uses musical vs. real spoons.

Good morning SD and Everyone!

Nice video on the spoons!

I meant to say with the posts I did with the "homemade" musical instruments. I think you can make instruments out of anything. But then what you really need is ability- able to produce sounds at an interval that sound good....I need some work on that

Trying to remember the movie where the person (instructor) said something about playing the space in between the notes....the silence. I recall similar with a guitar teacher. Had me improvising with a scale. I am playing lots of notes. He said sometimes less is more. Then proceeds to play something good with 2-3 notes.

Good morning all, and nice video once again, LadyDi.

Day 1 of teleworking; this should be interesting. Pros: No alarm clock, no need for an early shower and shave, no morning commute (aside from the walk from the bedroom to my home office ), and no interaction with annoying coworkers

As a matter of fact, I was talking to my brother on the phone yesterday and mentioned that I'd been wanting to call him and bug him about fixing my picture problem, but that I was worried it was "operator error" (ID10T), and I just wasn't good at computers. He asked me to describe the problem, so I did, and asked if he'd ever heard of such a thing, and he said, "Yeah, I'll see if I can fix that when we have our next session." Just like it was no big deal! So there might be hope for my pictures after all, and Denny will finally get to see a current picture of Horus the Horse. It's not a good time for him. He's a giant hairball. No matter how much I pull off of him, more keeps coming out. He looked like a giant plush toy with his winter coat, but now he looks like a giant plush toy that's been sitting in an attic for about a hundred years, LOL!

We had such a nice day yesterday! It was 63 degrees, sunny, and only a little light breeze. Today and tomorrow are both supposed to be 65-ish, but by Thursday, the forecast is for 4 to 5 inches of snow and a high of 30. Crazy weather. 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.

I made a BEAUTIFUL cheese yesterday. Well, I started it the day before, but I took it out of the press yesterday and it's in the drying cabinet now. If the hay guy comes today, I won't be able to give it to him, so I hope he comes tomorrow instead. It needs another day of drying before I can wax it. I have a little fan blowing on it to speed things up a bit, but cheese is a live thing - you can't rush it too much.

I'm also stockpiling a bunch of milk now, and I've got full cream on it, so I'll be making butter this week, although I don't really need it. I still have a freezer full of storebought butter (I always stock up during "dry" times). I hadn't actually planned to milk Cricket after Oliver went home. I was going to let her dry off and have a nice long summer vacation before her next calving, but since we can't get milk at the store, I had to put her back to work. Poor abused creature. (Pssst... she's spoiled rottener than every other animal around here, and that's saying something!)

You know what's weird? When I spelled "rottener" up there in my last post, it was a play-word, being silly, you know? But it didn't underline in red, meaning it must be a real word, at least in the forum dictionary. Who'da thunk it? I thought I made it up.

Oh, speaking of, that reminds me of a funny story. One night, back in our old house in Central Oregon, I had my big telescope out and was "surfing the Milky Way" and found a little tight star cluster I'd never noticed before. What are the chances that someone just sitting on their deck surfing the sky would discover a new cluster? Well, I'll tell you, it's astronomical, that's what. (Oh har, har, I'm a laugh riot!) Anyway, I was all excited, but I figured I'd better check my star maps and make sure it was "new," and I found it alright. It's M-22. The M stands for Messier, a guy from the 1800s who cataloged a whole bunch of little fuzzy spots in the sky, subsequently discovered (with better telescopes) to be star clusters, globular clusters, or galaxies. M-22 was one of the FIRST ones he found. So I was a couple hundred years late on my "discovery," but I'll never forget that moment of excitement.

Good morning everybody ! Still windy here this morning and at 44 degrees - a little brisk out .

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 .

Ah yes. Good ole M22. Or maybe it was M21? They're both in Sagittarius.

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.

Ken sorry about the loss of a friend and a contemporary.

I am surprisingly still busy. Certain portions of business have vanished but the supermarket business is good and Home Depot and Lowes are really pulling through for us on sales since these stores have not shut down.

Lannie thanks again for the info. The chicks are well past 3-4 weeks but would not have thought that 70 D. was a cool temp for a young ones.
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.
