Don't worry Kenny.

That is your chicken! The comb is right, but the eyes need to be less evil. Kenny the rooster has eyes that will melt a hen's heart.

Mine too!

That's why he is still here!

Good Morning All!

Can't believe I was up at 5:30 and stayed up!

Kudo's to me!

As I meandered my way through the vast knowledge of the internet I came across many sites that talked about it - from legal terms to writing to academic. I had at first thought is was something to do with your special powers

But I did have a hard time looking at the two words together as nothing popped up that had a meaning for the term as one at least not one that I thought had a good return of meaning. Some sites tried to hide the meaning in lots of verbose prose that I had to decipher and these types I had to shun so early in the morning. Luckily I found sites that were lauded as dictionaries!!!

Finally through(threw, thru, throw, thruff...darn English) my exhaustive searching I found that I had to understand each word:
Eschew - 1300–50; Middle English eschewen < Old French eschiver, eschever < Germanic; compare Old High German sciuhen, German scheuchen,

prolixity [Middle English, from Old French prolixe, from Latin prōlixus, poured forth, extended.]

In the end I learned I unfortunately tend towards the prolix - and thus why mel has the special power and I dont. But hopefully with mel's guidance I can also become Eschew Prolixity

And that is why my wife tells me to stick to my day job! Joke telling is not my forte

Now with a cup of coffee in me I can return to normal
You wasted your morning. Ma ain't up yet!

I am going to ask the first dumb question of the morning.

Ma?

Did you draw that rooster?

If so, I will buy a framed original about 4 foot by 4 foot. I need to cover an interior window.



My house is weird. I've got interior windows that look into various parts of the interior house. I am trying to save the charm of this house by covering the windows that Mister wants to demo.

Is your rooftop antenna shared among all your sets and is it designed for HDTV broadcast? If it is shared, you'll lose dB signal strength with each splitter cable passes through. Easiest, quick fix solution is to install an active, amplified splitter/booster to boost signal to each set on distribution such as this one. (assuming you have a decent rooftop antenna)

https://amazon.com/Bi-Directional-Di...dp/B00XEHY64W/

Next step would be to install a higher gain HDTV antenna on roof such as RCA one previously linked.

If that doesn't work, an amplified high gain HDTV antenna such as this one could be used (has VHF dipole to pickup SD analog channels in addition to HD UHF channel dipole elements)

https://amazon.com/AirDiff-Outodor-A...dp/B07N7YHDC7/

Keep in mind, amplified antennas can't be used with the other active splitter/boosters, as linked above.
Maybe next time you're at coffee shop or TS, ask around what setup others in Guthrie are using for HDTV antennas, or is everyone using satellite?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yagi Antenna Wind Tip- Back in my early seafaring career, along the US Gulf-East coast tanker trade, we used to mount large high gain VHF/UHF antennas on flying bridge so officers and crew could watch TV up and down coast in lounges. Each antenna was mounted on a heavy duty Ham antenna rotator. To keep the elements from getting torn apart from the constant wind and occasional storms, we would string the elements together with 200lb. test fishing line, knot off, then epoxy the knots. This would strengthen antenna into homogeneous unit without affecting signal reception. This is less important with the UHF yagi style antennas with short elements, more resistant to wind damage. Something to consider in tornado alley?

Ken was right in previous post. My first take on this drawing was that it represented what Ma feels like when being woken up from her Maverick-type naps by a DT Mod Alert.

HELL! I do not know.

I bought the house and the previous owner said we don't have cable or satelite, either. We get the best channels in the living room. So, the main TV is hooked to the rooftop.

I don't mind being primitive, but why can't I get the same channels on every TV?

I only have 4 TVs...

Here is one site that tells you what channels you can get with a decent HD antenna. You can do an advanced search and put in your home address. Back when I was doing a little research, I think they recommended an outdoor antenna and that it be put at least 30 or 35 feet up for best reception.

Actually, the statement on my avatar is rather tongue in cheek, because as anyone knows who frequents this thread, eschewing prolixity is definitely not in my wheelhouse.

Yup, but there's no way it would stretch to 4 feet square. You'd need a lot of little ones, which would get a bit overwhelming. I probably couldn't even be in the same room...

Speaking of which (sorta), TN, I'm finding Wizard of the Pigeons rather eerie. It reminds me of some author I've read somewhere back in the past...maybe Bradbury's October Country??

I did read her Wolf's Brother book first...totally not worth it, in my mind. Or at least, not up the standards I'm used to from her. I didn't know it was the second book in a twofer--Reindeer People is the first. Maybe if I had read that one initially, I would have like this one better.

Her books as Robin Hobb aren't written in the same style, but remain a favorite with me still.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book; finished it in 2 days. I was going to read more of her stuff but did a segue into the Jesse Stone series (Robert B. Parker) after finding out there were more books in the series than I had initially read years ago...so I started from the beginning again. After I finish them all, it's back to Robin Hobb.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

Me, *trying* to watch the TN Titans play the Indianapolis Colts. Sorry, crappy selfie but you get the gist. This girl has to have her face planted on mine. Welcome to life with Mocha

I agree very nice.

I like it for a number of reasons - It seems to have movement, my stuff seems stiff. Also the shading is much more dramatic. I have gone to a couple of art classes at night and showed instructor....says need to darken up the darks more!!!

Extra nice photo TN - that pic. is just as good, as the awesome ones...you get paid to take, and business-employment built around.
- such a Loyal bond...still a Daddy little girl


JOKE

A State Trooper pulled over a Man for Speeding one afternoon. After the car pulled over the officer took the Gentleman out of the car and told him to put his hands on the hood of his car.
The Trooper told the man, "Sir, the reason i stopped your vehicle is you were going 80 miles over the posted speed limit and it took me miles to catch up to you." The man looked at the Officer and said "I'm sorry Officer but theres a good reason why I was Speeding"

The Officer looked at the Man and said "if you can give me one good reason why you were Speeding, I will let you off with a warning."

The man began to explain.... "A few years ago my Wife ran off with a State Trooper and when I saw you in my rearview mirror I panicked. I thought You Were Bringing Her Back."

The officer LAUGHING told the man, "Have a Nice Day......"

Blah! The Colts seem to own the Titans, year after year. I don't get TN...they spanked my Browns last week and played so poorly this week.

I wish someone would pay me to take photos! It's just a hobby I enjoy and am still learning each time I pick up that camera
And oh yeah, she is definitely daddy's girl
