Re: Jury Duty

Maybe if the weather's bad, you could consider a hotel for a night or two? I was called once, but when I told them my age I was excused.

Re: Happy Birthday, Val!

Beautiful spot, Val. And I'm not at all jealous of swimming and hiking because I'm just loving our minus 21C temps. After all, I don't even need to go to a skating rink - I can just skate right down my back path. Nope, I'm not jealous at all (sob, sob, sob).

Re: Scary?

LadyK, all the hydro poles in our neighborhood are situated on the borders between our gardens and the ones at the back of us. Saves having them on the street which is not the most beautiful form of street furniture and keeps all the overhead wires in the back and relatively out of sight. In the new...

Re: Scary?

I just read your post out loud to my hubbie and we both laughed out loud at the flying gas grill! We hope that cracked rafter won't cause too much trouble, I'd think the only way to fix it would be to remove all the roofing around it. Sounds expensive.

Re: Scary?

I'm so sorry to hear of your unfortunate "Act of God". I take it the brunt of the damage was to the roof? Were you in the house when it fell? Now that's scary! It's too bad you have to take your tree down but it's definitely the right decision. Are you going to plant another? If I had the ...

Scary?

Hydro Ottawa had to replace a pole at the back of our garden today and I thought you might like to see what flew over our house. Talk about watching with all fingers crossed! We were very impressed with the delicacy and accuracy with which the pole was put in place, particularly since it had to come...

If anyone remembers The Two Ronnies, they'll remember this one. If you haven't heard of them, I guarantee you'll love it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi_6SaqVQSw

Re: beautiful weather lately

It's been a beautiful weekend here in Ottawa too, with temps as high as 50 degrees Fahrenheit. It's amazing how fast the snow is melting, in my backyard it was up over a 3 foot fence and in 2 days it's down by a good 6 inches. Of course, it's meant lots of "lakes" out on the street and we ...

Rediscovered an Old Game

I thought I'd have a look through my Big Fish games and came across "Enlightenus" which I've been playing all day. I remember it was a favourite when first bought it and still plays well after all these years in my windows 10. A small quibble is that is it plays in 800 x 600, so exiting to...

Re: Shutdown button

Stella, can you block the phone number they're calling from? I do this on both my land line and my cell phone.

Technical Marvel!

First, I apologize for being away so long, been in a bit of "let everything slide" period. However, back now, you lucky people. My marvel. I thought I was pretty clued up on my electronic bits and pieces, but have just this hour discovered that my cheap little phone gives me the most wonde...

Re: The Black Dahlia

Thanks for posting the picture, Drac. It's nice to be able to put a face with a name, especially when many of us felt we "knew" her. She looked like a lady with a zest for life.
