    5939 Addition!

    I'm so old I can still remember people smoking in restaurants.

    I'm so old I remember calling that phone number for the local weather forecast.
  4. The Leaving / Returning Thread

    Man, Blade, that is really terrible. The same exact thing killed my mother in law several years ago at a far too young an age. It's a devastating diagnosis, and you have my profound sympathies. Same to you, Catty. Fight on.

    Thunderstorms blew through this morning, so we didn't turn on the CNC until after lunch. I had leftover burritos for lunch, but we'll fix some up fresh for you now. Enjoy!

    Happy America's Birthday to you as well. I'd have replied sooner but we were camping and I blissfully had no electronics on me to monitor. I'm keeping the campfire going, though, so bring your sticks and let's roast some marshmallows while we're drinking our sweet teas.

    I think between all the fruit and ice cream we'll find several ways to stay cool!

    Man, this is a hot, miserable weekend. Still went to the beach and had fun, though. What's good on a beach? Bottles of ice cold Oberon and Corona. Watermelon. Ice cream. Barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers. Kebobs. Come on over and join us!
  9. I use my Windows 10 laptop for light gaming and creative works! Since I'm a writer my creativity is harnessed in Open Office, and my light gaming is SC4, SC3KU, and Civilization IV. I think it's a perfectly good machine for this sort of thing. If I can make a little more money eventually I'll reward myself with a more powerful PC that can run C:S and Civ VI, but for now it's perfectly serviceable.

    5935 That's pretty cool. Alaska is on my short list of places I want to visit. We still have daylight here until 945PM or so, but that's no midnight.

    It was gray and cloudy up here, we only hit 50F and chili was the dinner of the day. Let's lay some out here so everyone can try a variety of styles: Texas style, Boston style, chicken chili, vegetable chili, slow cooker chili, chili for hot dogs. All kinds.
  13. Searching for a new antivirus

    Windows Defender is pretty great and does everything you could ask an anti-virus program one must pay for to do. I've been using only that or Microsoft Security Essentials for way more than 10 years on the various laptops I've owned.

    It was a lovely day in Upper Michigan, so we took in a lighthouse and had a picnic on the stony shore. The flying bugs were only moderately bad, and didn't seem too interested in the peanut butter and honey sandwiches we were eating. Why not join us on the patio overlooking the lake for an encore of our picnic lunch? Fresh cut fruit, Chex Mix, and plenty of other snacks and sandwiches and even some Greek salad are spread out on the picnic blanket, so join us!
  15. Fate Of Nations was a great album, and his work with Allison Krause is beautiful.
