  1. Happy Birthday, if a tad belated!!!
  2. Happy Birthday Steve!! And the day after your birthday. And the day after......
  3. Bonnie traded the Honda she's had for twenty two years for new new one. Blue, this time

    Sitcoms

    Disjointed seems worth a look. Very short episodes. We've been watching two at a go.
  5. Belated, but I hope you had the most happy of Birthdays!!!
  6. The speakers in my Smart weren't sounding quite right, so I replaced them. (I had gotten out of the habit of listening to the radio for the better part of a year. I guess during that time the surround rolls went from...well, they just went...
  7. Pretty sweet to see him go to jail for that......
  8. A friend gave me this cool t-shirt. It's a patent drawing of a Jensen headphone from the late fifties/sixties. A little before my time. Did anybody know the story of these things? We're they an innovation? Did they ever amount to anything?
  9. Temperatures are plunging. Some of Bonnie's plants are under heat lamps.
  10. Intriguing. If you do this, plz report back..... And I gotta say, those Schiit guys do some interesting stuff.
  11. Indeed! Eat, drink and be merry!
  12. Thanks, everybody! It is tough. Saturday was one of the worst days of my life. But we'll recover. Donut and Jazz are starting to behave a little more normally. And looking after them will help keep us focused on the positive.
  13. Enigma has passed away. We loved her with all our hearts. She was kind. She was tough. She was smart. I'll never be able to express my gratitude for all she gave me. Tears on my keyboard.
  14. I think you're on the right track, Nate. In the near term. - and maybe forever - mono could be fine. If a "temporary" solution lasts long enough, maybe wireless possibilities might mature to the point of practicality.
  15. Happy Birthday, Birthday co-conspirator!!!!!!!
  16. Happy Birthday, Birthday co-conspirator!!!!!!!
  17. Many thanks, guys! Actually, Bonnie had a lot of stuff going on yesterday, so we're doing ongoing Birthday today. Or diffuse Birthday. So, celebratory mood for a while. It'll be the new fashion in birthdays.....
  18. Interesting how different these things are in different neighborhoods. Here in Oakland Park, winds never got over 50mph or so. Wilma did 30k in damage to my house. This one blew an aluminum vent cover off. There was, of course, the obligatory 100 mph gust at the port. But if my neighbor sneezes, there's a 100 mph gust at the port.
  19. Things are ok here. Pretty much all clear by noon. No limbs blocking streets. No fallen junk. We had an exhausting day hauling stuff to change from hurricane mode to no power for two weeks mode. Got the tree off our roof. Very little damage really. Cosmetic stuff to a few houses. No twisted road signs. I didn't see any damaged commercial buildings. A lot of broken trees. Our neighbor lost about a dozen. The only broken power pile I saw at all was in front of our workshop. No worries for us. The guys who make their living in that building may feel otherwise. The big discomfort is the power. Eight hours in - at low end tropical storm winds- we had a million people without power. In broward alone. Not a good showing for FPL. And they've already warned us that they won't be up to their usual sterling standard for restoration. So we're looking at two weeks for a storm that didn't even block any streets. Grrr.
  20. Florida tornados are a different thing. Very small. Pop up out of nowhere, move very fast and blow some shit down. Not anywhere near as deadly, but scary because of crazy behavior.
