Yeah, I guess that’s true. Good morning, GN!

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!

Mac -- heh!

Mrs. Paddy and Teh Younger finished their work yesterday and have today off to be tourists. Tomorrow they fly to Guam, spend a day there, then fly to Hawaii and on to home, arriving early Monday. It will be good to have them home.

I’d be much more concerned about Saipan. It’s a much smaller island (44.5 sq. mi. vs. 210 sq. mi) and both Mrs. Paddy and Teh Younger have been hanging out right at the edge. OTOH, Teh Younger will be stepping off the island for a couple of dives today, so that might help.

Friday Greetin’s, Wheelizens!

Hi, Sven and Paddy!

Seconding Paddy’s “heh!” re teh thread pic; nice one, Mac.

Fatwa — safe travels. At least the weather is nice.

Cheers. Was nice to have some “face time” with the facilities manager at the place in El Monte; we’ve been doing business with him -- and his eight manufacturing buildings -- for about twenty years. He’s a good lad.

Happy to see Mrs. Paddy and Teh Younger finished their good works and will have a chance to play tourist on their way home; safe travels to both of them.

Lots of admins carp today; really glad I bought this used Macbook Pro a few years ago. (Trying to do stuff on Jim’s not-well-maintained Windows desktop -- as I used to do -- was, erm, unpleasant. Plus, it’s good to own a backup computer “just in case”.)

BBL.

I can deal with Windows for basic tasks (word processing, internet, etc.) if I absolutely have to.

But regardless of operating system, poorly-maintained computers are a PITA. (I think I actually know a teeny bit more about Windows than Jim ’cause I’ve picked a clue or two up from LambiePieK by osmosis…or something.)

Thanks, Mac. We’ll see how things play out, but it is one less bit of stress to work through.

Geez, now that I think about it, that’s rather presumptuous of me.

I echo Mac’s sentiments. Less stress is a goodness, Sven.

Hi, Mac!

Shame if it capsized.

*Scha-nort!*

Bless Rep. Hank Johnson’s none-too-bright heart.

We are off on a double date with some old friends. Mrs Sven wants to see this old comic.

Have a good time, Sven! I’m sure between the raccoons and Jack Tatum, your place will be taken care of.

Re: teh thread pic:

Truer words have never been spoken. Why did I not see this?? I’m usually pretty good with patterns.

Belated Greetings Gerbil Nation!!

We were up in Flagstaff for Medical Stuff today. I had to do a lot of naps to prepare for that so I didn’t go online at all after both work sessions. Just naps. I was ready to go in the late morning, but we were still a bit late getting to Harper’s appointment. My fault as I didn’t get a proper time estimate and was going on my memory--never a good idea.

Anyway, we are back safe and sound, and everything is fine. We had a nice trip but didn’t do anything extra apart from stopping at McDonald’s before heading back down.

Listened to podcasts on the way up and down. http://www.dailywire.com, mostly.

Did something happen with auto-refresh? The site doesn’t seem to be doing it anymore.
