Spring Is Here????

Ducks swimming on the road.

Another shot of duck swimming on the road.

A shot from the road bridge towards the railroad bridge. There is only supposed to be a small stream between the two, not a lake.

America's Most Dangerous Tumors

The tumor reference comes up late in the video, but is worth the wait. Lots and lots of snarky comments.

I Survived K.I.

Here's a t-shirt for Sarge. 

It wasn't "Someplace Special" when I was there. "Someplace Special" is a more recent term for the U.P. It is something the local TV station came up with sometime in the last twenty years.

UP On The Tundra In The Moonlight

These are pictures I took last night because the moonlight was so strong and things were looking nice outside. I only wish it wasn't damn near the end of April!!!!

This picture turned out better than most of the others. I'm still learning how to use my camera and thought it was recording the pictures as I was seeing things. Turned out I had to play with the pictures after I loaded them into my confuser in order to see what was on the picture. Had to run the brightness all the way up before the picture showed up. At first this picture was just a couple of bright spots on the right side.

 Same shots in daylight.

This is my little trailer, it is standing on end, on the tailgate. The bed of the trailer is 4ft long and it is still almost completely buried in the snow on April 24, 2013.

The Old Lady is talking about going cross country skiing on her birthday the end of next week!!!!!!

Browser, Firefox

Last night and today I've been using Firefox browser for a change. Hadn't used Firefox for many months as I usually use Google Chrome browser. Yesterday when trying to watch a NASCAR race, the image was freezing up and at times not responding. I decided to try Firefox to see if that would stream better. It did seem to stream better and last night we used Firefox to watch some TV shows on Hulu and Netflix Also linked to Project Free TV to watch an episode of Game of Thrones. Everything seemed to work OK, but today I noticed something that I don't care for. It's all the fucking ads that pop-up or are embedded on most of the sites I go to. Just a few minutes ago I was leaving a comment on another blog and there were three or more ads in the pop-up for comments. One above and a couple below the comments section.

Also I've noticed that sites tend to take a long time to load, probably because of all the ads that are put there by Firefox. The little wheel spends a lot of time spinning and spinning.

I guess I'll stick with Google Chrome.

Translation Devices???

Today I got my hearing aids. On the way home from the VA,The Old Lady said that it would be interesting to see if while watching TV if I could now understand the Brits. I said they ain't translation devices!!

A while back we were watching Hamish Macbeth on DVD and she agreed that closed captioning was a good idea for that show!!

Welcome Home

This is a picture of the driveway after we got home yesterday, April 7, 2013. This is a typical homecoming for me, I am usually greeted by snow when I come home unless I do it in July or August. Ran into snow Saturday night in Northern Wisconsin and decided to spend the night in Ironwood, MI. Didn't want to drive in fresh snow at night and we would have arrived home at midnight. On Sunday the roads were bare all the way until we got to our driveway which was unplowed (they don't plow driveways on the weekends, only the main roads).

We had hoped that the snow would melt while we were on our trip to Colorado, SILLY US!!!!!! We were gone for a week and a half and instead of melting, we got more snow.

Bettar Spell Chek??

Got this pop-up when I opened a new window this morning. Makes me wonder if this is intentional to get bad spellers to use their spell chek or did someone hack Google chrome and put this up as satire???
