    I don't want the sun coming up at 4 am in the summer. I much prefer it coming up at 5 and going down after 9.

    It's different all over the place. Further north you are the more day/night time swing you have. Right now it doesn't come up till 730 here and that's too late.

    We're at 7:03 up and 7:28 down today. Until 2005 we were starting at the beginning of April and ending the last of October. They decided to add a month on each end in 2005. It works OK here, but I guess down south it would be better if they'd left it April and October instead of March and November. For us the big boost is having it be light out when you get off work in March after the change. Prior to that we have it dark both on the way to and coming home from work.

    There was/is a guy In my general area who was on Facebook who listed. "Help me Help me" I'm a Disabled person with no money . I live in my truck and will make signs for 2/3 the price that the sign companies charge. No business license , no phone. Give me your address I will come to you. THIS IS *&^%$# BUT ACTUALLY A REAL LISTING.

    What's lame is you keep repeating the same things. Although I've never heard of the catheter thing before. And I havnt heard of stinky feet since I was in 2nd grade...so maybe there is hope for you after all. I'll keep toying with you,

    With my Cat Powered Virus Detector™ project a complete fail I decided to try something more productive.
    I used to bake bread/cornbread from scratch once a week or so, but too much time at the shop and I gave it up some years ago.

    The good news/bad news is the older you get the more everything seems brand new - even if you used to know how to do it.
    This first batch pretty much got away from me but I've got lots of time now to up my game.

    I just talked to an excavator in town. He told me NOBODY is obeying the no work order...NOBODY. He said all the contractors are still doing everything business as usual, himself included. Non-essential work is continuing as if nothing even happened. He told me to keep working and just keep the door locked and deliver instead.

    It's a documentary that will keep you entertained for about 8 hours. Gay cowboy raises Tigers, had a three-way marriage. Another Tiger lady who has all sorts of **** going on, another one that is running a cult. Really it's a Jerry Springer episode times 20.

    It's currently the most popular program on Netflix.

    I watched the series too. It was fascinating in the way watching a collision between one bus carrying circus side show freaks and another bus carrying mental patients would be fascinating. Several friends and co-workers keep asking, "why did this clown have to be from Oklahoma?"

    I got a pretty good laugh out of "scenery" from Winniewood, Oklahoma. One bit of scenery was NOT in Winniewood at all. Winniewood is a town off I-35 about an hour's drive East from here. Yet they showed a now-dilapidated BAE Systems billboard showing an M109 self-propelled howitzer with the headline, "right gun right now." That billboard stands next to I-44 just outside Elgin, OK. BAE Systems has a production facility there, where they are building M109 A7 units.

    Our company built that billboard structure back in 2002 for United Defense, when they were trying to get the Crusader self-propelled artillery cannon system funded. The program was killed just months after we installed the billboard. The Army has spent the last 20 years making more improvements to the M109 platform. Anyway, the face of that billboard was modified a couple times in the 2000's, first to remove the Crusader hardware and then to change the branding to BAE Systems. Then the whole thing was re-printed in Feb 2011. And it hasn't been re-done in the 9 years since. So obviously it looks really bad. BAE Systems is probably just going to have the billboard removed.

    I also got a kick out of seeing TV journalist Sylvia Corkill in this documentary. She's from Lawton and used to work at our local ABC affiliate, KSWO-TV. I've met her a few times at events my civic club runs. My girlfriend knows her pretty well. A few other snippets from KSWO-TV coverage of this Tiger King side show popped up in that documentary.

    My dad is 94 and has gone full bore into baking. Bought a mixer from Sweden. Can't remember where he bought his grain mill. Yes, he grinds his own wheat into flour. Turns out incredible breads, rolls, scones etc... Told him I'm going to bring my Kamado and use it as a wood fired oven. He likes that idea.

    What I'm getting at is buy a grain mill. Dad said his bread/bakery were really good with store bought flour, but couldn't get it top shelf until he bought a mill.
