The TVM is full of thanks. Also...fun videos!!!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

I hope Calma is feeling better too.

Glad your boots are toasty warm, tooksie.

Glad to hear that Thor can leave the house too.

I am happy to take all he excess snow. Sooooo tired of summer now. Becasue it has been so hot the sandflies that I suspect wer dislodged from thei outside homes by the builders across the road have taken up residence in my home. I have bombed the house twice now with insect bomb thingys, but they are resisilent. I think a third is required. Sooooo sick of being bitten. Did not think I was that tasty... Have you guys got any sure fire remedies to kill the little varmits???

Yea, I hear Oz is having really hot weather. :P

Later this week we will be super-cold. :P

Gotta figure out some way to even it out...

As for the critters biting you, I can't help much, nl. Can you put on bug repellent to keep them off you at least????

Yes, putting on bug repellant, bombed the house 3 times now so I am hoping number 3 is a winner. I must be tasty. :(

Well, it's been freezing around here for the last two or three days. I'd love to go to Australia right about now.

Also, it's quite odd to have an entire pack of coyotes living in the woods below my house. They've always been there, for about as long as I can remember: but recently they've been getting very loud, howling at night and whatnot. I feel really bad for the folks living in the retirement community down the road from me, who are even closer to the coyotes.

We got a decent amount of snow. Maybe 3-4 inches total? Now for the cold stuff. :P

Is it Spring yet?

I wish Tooks, I REALLLLLY wish it were!

The air temperature is minus 8 below zero Fahrenheit.

The wind chill is minus 20 below zero Fahrenheit.

I'm going to go hibernate now.

Calma, hope you're doing better.

We were supposed to get <1 inch of snow today. Looks more like 3 inches to me. :P :roll: :evil:

Of all the Original Star Trek episodes, this one is my favorite. The first few seconds has no sound. Stick with it and it will show up.

https://youtu.be/enU_AHC9l04

I didn't know it was his as well. He'll show himself about 24 seconds into the video.

Hey all. Got a question for those who know how to use Microsoft Office Pro machine.
Calma has trouble getting on her computer but they have the Office Pro but when she logs into this site
we can't figure out how to post a reply. She would really like to get back and talk to you all.

If you have any advice post it and either she will see it or I can tell her about it.

Thanks in advance for any help

Oh, and we finally got some snow here in WA state!!!

Huh. I have no clue, Sable. My laptop is about... 6 years old... so I don't know any new-fangled stuff. The Post a Reply button isn't there?
I know at one point I used a PC that was not compatible with TORC, but switching to a different browser worked! I think the using Firefox or Chrome worked instead of IE. ???

Boo on the Superbowl. I did not watch. I made muffins instead. Did a sudoku puzzle. Went to bed. :D

And now our snow is melting. It will be 55 F (13C) here tomorrow. :)

I thought the half-time was really disappointing, and there were nowhere near as many trailers as we were expecting. Some good commercials, but nothing too spectacular. And also, another win for the Patriots. I should technically support them, but I can't help but like the Rams.

The Super Bowl was a real snoozer. Hope it's better next year.
Even the half time show was a drag. And I love Maroon 5.

How y'all doing?
We're supposed to get some real snow tonight and tomorrow.
Not looking forward to it.

Later

Sorry you are having a horrid winter. in the frosted north.

Today the heat is tolerable. Don't think it will even make 30C which I am fine with. Feb is usually our hottest month (so if visiting avoid that!) My arctic ice cube has been helping with the heat and shopping centres are good to cool down in.

So looks like Australia in going to Eurovision again. I really don't get why we are included again. I know they invited us one year just for fun or something. They must have liked us as we have now been going for 4 years...and we are nowhere near Europe!!! Weird.

So my home improvements are just about done. I'm only renting so can only do things to my own stuff. I still have 1 bookcase to whitewash but the thought of unpacking all those books makes me think: next week. I did put together one of those cube storage things. This one has 8 cubes and they are all mostly full. ANd I have too mnay paris of shoes. Really need to cull those.

Going to try a new morning service today so I shold get butt in gear.

The snow is gone here but they say it's coming back. Two inches by tomorrow.

Then by Tuesday the temps go up and snow turns to rain. :roll:

I like the warmer temps but not the rain, cause the temps are not going to STAY warmer, at least not yet. And when they drop again, everything freezes, and is icy and slippery, and horrible..... :hair:

Hey Calma! Good to see you. How ya doing?

Been stuck inside for three days and now the rains have begun.
