It's Friday, like it or not. Most of us probably are happy. Flew by this week for me.

Wet Saturday is the call for the weekend. Nothing new there. We've actually gone three days without any and today is supposed to be dry as well. Rivers and creeks still high.

I ate badly last evening. Had to have Tums for late dessert and early morning snack. I'll leave the menu for others.

In preparation for our parish's Christmas Bazaar this weekend, I flipped a couple hundred hot cakes last evening. Sunday morning, I'll be cooking bacon. Doing that is enjoyable.

Good morning, Larry, Mark and crew. We haven't had rain in a few days, so my outdoor chore is raking leaves. Our autumn comes later than you folks up north, so it's serious leaf raking season here.

Have a good day.
George

Good morning Larry and the rest of the crew. It is 32 degrees with a few snow flurries coming down here in Rose Twsp, MI. Two warmer days with some rain are on the way. That should get rid of our snow cover.

Off for grocery shopping this morning. Our Thanksgiving visitors pretty much cleaned us out of most things.

Have a great day!

Good morning Larry and the incoming crew. Thanks Mark for firing up the silver bullet and the fine breakfast. I'm sitting at the eye doctors office. Fog over freezing rain to get here. Temp is just about right to really make driving an adventure.

I'm using an iPad, can't warm up to it. Very awkward to write with. Now I see why all the grammatical errors and punctuation errors are made. I'm still an 'old school' stickler. That smiley was about 10 keystrokes.

I'm getting a headache with this gizmo!

Have a Super day!

Jim

Got a revised PhD dissertation to proof on my desk and to turn around today; 200 pages of fun.

More caffeine, please!

Then again......he put it on the Google drive and neglected to give me access to it......so I'm wondering just how badly he wants his PhD, or not.....


Iíd say that your chances are as thin as a homeopathic soup made
from the shadow of a pigeon that died of starvationÖ

Hazy bright in MI this morning, there was a lingering low layer of fog when I first looked out, now just hazy. I just came in from cleaning the snow off of my truck as itís sat since Tuesday.

Breakfast and then a trip to go get my new glasses, an Rx and return some wire to Menards. The Doll has plans to put up the tree today. She stayed up way too late last night watching a Civil War movie with Jeff Daniels and others. I had to crash out early in that endeavor.

Iím moving along well on the wiring and will head back to scenic work on the layout soon.

Everyone have a good day.

I have had the IPadPro since retirement and still donít like it. Jim, try posting a picture to the forums from it. As you know I canít. I have been hinting for anything windows based but not sure the family is listening. Maybe after Xmas I may gift myself!

iPad Pro here x2.

I got the Doll an iPad Air and really liked it as a internet viewer and she liked it. When apple announced the Pro I was hoping after all the hype Iíd be able to run Photoshop and other programs. I soon found out their iPad APPs are the Campbell Soup version and donít allow you to do most of the same things as PS Elements on a Ďrealí computer. Nope, same with Fusion 360 and other lookalike apps for IPads. Tried the smaller version with the keyboard and it is my go to for most of my internet stuff but comes up short when trying to do anything beyond forums and internet stuff. As Tom says posting pics is a no-go. I CAN upload photos to Photobucket off the iPad Pro but canít copy and paste the file names to post them. Iíd really like to ditch my first Pro and the worthless pencil but canít trade it in as it had my name etched into it when I ordered it from Apple. The smaller one I have has the keyboard and is cellular equipped and it does Ďokí but is no more capable than a plain old iPad Air like the Doll has. It does ok out on the road using the cellular IF I can find a decent Sprint signal.

Well the best part of the iPad was, I didn't pay for it! #1 son thought I needed to get into the 21st Century and donated his old one. A steam powered IBMPCjr with a 'chiclet keyboard circa 1984' would be more useful.

Big earthquake in Alaska. My friend there said her family is all ok, although her turtle had a very close call when the aquarium almost fell and broke.

Just saw it.

7.0 then a 5.8 aftershock. Serious damage around Anchorage airport. All Alaska RR trains halted to assess damage.
