OK...home decorating tip for the stupid (which is sorta how I feel)

I have a one wide window with two blinds hung inside it, side by side. Corded blinds have mostly been outlawed, so now all they sell are the push up/pull down kind. One particular blind would never pull down and stay exactly where I wanted it...it would bounce up just an inch or so after I let go, fine so far as coverage and looks went, but I could never get it exactly even with the other blind (which would pull down to wherever you wanted it and stay there when you let go.) I don't think I'm particularly OCD or anything, but it would drive me nuts to have two blinds in the window that weren't lined up with each other, so I'd push and pull a couple of times on the wonky blind to try to line it up before (usually) giving up.

And then my son suggested--pull down the tricky one; let it chose where it's going to be, and then match the other one which behaves itself to that length.

Duh........

Mel - I will make you feel better - many moons ago - many -- My wife drove one of our tractors in the spring - the pass right in front of the planter , dad always drove the planter - the last day we were planting -we blew a hydraulic line on the planter - in ran threw the tongue of the planter , along with a bunch of other hoses - I took off to get a new hose while dad took it apart - I told dad -- DON"T take out the broke hose - we would tie the new hose to it and pull it threw = easy right ? well no it wasn't ! We worked and worked and couldn't pull it threw - Wife was sitting in the pickup right next to us - she asked - do you guys want to get done today ? We looked at her and before we could say anything - she said just tape it to the outside - it won't hurt anything and then fix it right when we move it home - I will never forgot that as dad and I looked at each other with a big grin and I ran over to the truck an got a roll of tape - 5 minutes later and the planter was running ! We still laugh about that one still today

It's sorta a thinking bias, I guess. I KNEW which blind was broken/not behaving the way it should. So the instinct is to fix THAT one, right??

Rather than making the good one match the "bad" one.

Define distance. If you want to shoot something far off, the Nikon Coolpix P900 ($499) is what you're looking for.

Well Guthrie was lucky to get a Tractor Supply. I will have to go back towards work to hit a Best Buy. No biggie! Thanks for the info!

Define distance.

Well my property is 5 acres and rectangle. House is on one end. Pond on the other. I want to catch the wildlife on the other end. Also birds in trees and of course the turkey. The deer come so close, but when they do I am afraid to move for fear of them running off. Cell phone just doesn't cut it. I will google my property and send a pic.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/E+...!4d-97.3988791

My property is the last property on the road. It runs from the road down to the building at the bottom. No neighbors to the left. Stupid neighbors up top. Don't hear a thing out of the neighbor to the right. Neighbor down South, Mister is the only one that visits. I think that neighbor is the one that put my spare on one day. They are all related on that side of the road. The North neighbors are the A-holes.

So there you go!

IMHO, the Nikon Coolpix P900 is what you're looking for without breaking the bank. You can get distance, but just be aware you're not going to have insane detail, i.e. being able to count every hair or feather if you're far away.

That story is comical!

I am not OCD at all and that bugs me! I've been watching redecorating shows this evening and wish I had the talent for texture and colors and making a house feel welcoming. Nah! My house is basically a farm house. I am not going to get upset if a guest smudges something in my house.

How can I complain when animals come trudging through with dirty feet. Myself included.

I struggle to keep counters and coffee tables clean.



I am going to have to get new carpet, though. Which means we have to move a bunch of furniture, some of it heavy.

Plus it doesn't help that there is a skunk hanging out somewhere very near. I believe under the house. Little stinker!

On another topic.

Lannie?

I've got some left over Purina Equine Senior food. Probably less than a quart. Is it okay to feed it to the chickens?

That's probably what I need. And the price would be?

Should I be scared of a refurbished one?

SO much of what they're pushing as current style bothers me....and it's almost ALL because of cleaning issues.

I have no desire to live in a place that has to be perfectly clean to look good. Home living is not perfectly clean.


And your horse merely looks coy with his head tipped and his chin tucked away, not earthquake distressed.

I think most places do but Best Buy does say price match - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/custome...at290300050002

So if identical then would match. My 2 second look on Amazon showed slightly lower prices with maybe not the best bundled accessories and labeled as international. Walmart shows $439....but do not know how identical it is. Or https://www.willoughbys.com/Nikon_Co...tm_content=low is $395 - Then hopefully they have free shipping. Warrantees to purchase as well if you want.

TN would have to say if they are the same

I didn't look to hard TN - but I assume this is a fixed lens - no other can be attached?

Here you go SP - Song with Kansas reference.

GLEN CAMPBELL LIVE WICHITA LINEMAN - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjzTNWWO7U0

I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire, I can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation but it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

Sounds like he added ….And I'm doing fine on this version....at the end.

Sometimes I regret being a Luddite. I've got a new (to me and even relatively recent vintage)--and I've been using Window 7 for so long that I didn't think about the inevitable problems of suddenly having to use Windows 10 which I don't think is nearly as intuitive as 7 was. But that's only part of the problem. The other part is dial up-if possible Windows10on dial up is even slower than 7.

I think this is going to force me to get a real internet thingy--whatever it's called.

So briefly that's my explanation of my absence--everything is marginally faster in the dead of night--and I'm up because--never mind--it's not mine to tell so I'll talk about why I'm up at almost 3:00an, Toad is fine, the cats are fine, I'm not quite right but other than that I'm fine.

You want a weather report--it's fall--and although the PNW still has not had anything like the rain we usually get in November--for the last couple of days it's rained a little, and it's raining right now and supposed to rain all day (well, it's not tomorrow--it's later today). What we've gotten in the last week in my neighborhood is leaves--but the prime leaf droppers around me are now bare (a big maple two doors down from me at the end of the block and my two small maples in the back yard and the huge old cherry in the back) and I'm still raking up leaves (wet leaves now).

So now, I'm going to go back to bed for a couple of hours before my date with destiny at around 6:00am.

Eventually we'll get my computer and isp services ironed out and/or I'll learn to effectively operate Windows 10.

Regards from ABTLH and Toad, Leon and Clark

Aunt B- Welcome back to CT!
I was a Win 7 fan as well- simple, with all the bugs (finally) fixed from Vista & XP. Had to upgrade due to many MS apps wouldn't work under Win 7 due to security upgrades. Also, my high end graphics cards (for flight-sims) wouldn't work at peak performance under Win 7.

What really got my goat this year was MS stopping support for Win 10 Mobile OS, used in both our Windows phones. I finally had found a smartphone OS that my semi-luddite, DW could operate easily and MS ceased support earlier this year, forcing us back to the Android platform. Apple OS, in my experience is great- but only if you have history with it, I think it's not intuitive at all, IMO.

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

FYI- There's a Titan missle silo for sale in AZ for $400G. Looks like a fixer-upper that needs a "little" paint, judging by the pics.
Toad and the cats would have lots of inside space to play and run around on rainy days (during monsoon season)...

It's fine to give them. I'm sure they'll love it and make short work of it. I have not yet found anything a chicken couldn't (or wouldn't) eat, including scary things like paint off the outside of the coop, insulation (GAH!) and styrofoam. They will literally eat anything, and nothing seems to faze them. Maybe rat poison... we don't do poison around here, so I don't know about that, but I've seen mine eating all of the above items and none of them fell over dead from any of it. Go figure.
