We moved here from Cleveland in 1956. In 1971 I was still with my parents and we were near the epicenter of the quake, the first one I experienced.

It has been a partnership lasting between 5000 and 10,000 years and maybe more. A very good friend of mine was a quarter horse mix with a John Deere tractor. Which is to say he was not a beautiful animal on the outside but inside he was a prince. He was sweet and affectionate and named Chochise but his friends called him Coach.The video link is to two German girls having a day out with their horse, also a sweet animal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJyT6Qg3ANU

We have a Canadian neighbor who keeps 6 horses as if they were dogs. He has a great relationship with them, and they with him

Of course. That was the place to be. Even better than on the wagon.

Does your neighbour ever talk about the old country?

Looks like I'm going back to normal production at work. May 4th. Is the rumor. Company wide teleconference shortly.

LAJ 04-22-20 06:02 AM

Again, thank you all for the kind thoughts regarding Indy, and us. It means a lot.

LAJ 04-22-20 06:03 AM

As mentioned earlier... Gronk and Brady. Lordy.

When it snows sideways you have to shovel the walls.

If there's such a thing as Buccaneers faithfuls, they've gotta be in wondrous disbelief right about now.

seedsbelize 04-22-20 06:20 AM

Another slow one. Everybody must have become productive. Shoveling snow perhaps. Sleeping in perhaps. 77A and heading for a high of, you guessed it, 100. It's been quite a run.

WhyFi 04-22-20 06:21 AM

Should be a nice day day, getting up to the low-60s. That in mind, I got clearance for a long ride from the wife yesterday.


....and before going to bed, I reviewed the calendar and saw that I have a tire/oil change appointment this morning. :notamused:

Annoying. Start your ride from the shop? Or is it ever so obnoxiously timed that it ruins any option to work around it? I love it when that happens.

Same temp here today, but with a threat of rain all day. Basically how the rest of the week is forecast to play out.

I'm still failing at finding motivation to go ride. Brought my MTB to work yesterday with full intentions to ride after I clocked out, but ended up unexpectedly needing to pick up something from a store right after work and the experience totally drained me.

I've also somehow become a total weenie and won't go out when it's below 50. I would have killed for that temperature two months ago :rolleyes:

I'm dropping it off when they open at 8am, so maybe I'll get back home by 10am. Maybe. Then we'll see what kind of impact it's had on motivation. I might be able to get in a long ride, but then I'll feel like a dick for being away from the family all day.

Can't ride from the shop - need the cargo room for the summer tires and no bike rack.

Brrrr - baklava weather.

big john 04-22-20 08:17 AM

After weeks of below normal temps and miraculous rain it's supposed to be in the 90s on Friday.

Someone earlier mentioned that in their area that landscape services weren't operating. But that's not the case in our area. As we walk through the neighborhood, we see lawn cutting, landscaping (weeding, mulching), lawn treatment (fertilizer, kill weeds, I guess), and sprinkler maintenance. A lot of these are just a one-man crew in a truck, there there is negligible risk. I have also seen trucks for HVAC and roofing contractors, and it looked like someone was getting their kitchen done (new countertops).

Some of the yard work is being done by homeowners - I guess it depends on the scale of the yard and how much effort you want to put into it.

Once again it is cold here - this morning temps were in the 30s, but it might get up to the mid 60s during the day.


All times are GMT -6. The time now is 10:57 PM.
