Watched both our favourite Danial Craig Bond movies. Casino Royale and Skyfall. My wife never liked Bond until Craig. We really like the themes for both those. My other personal favourites are Diamonds are Forever and You Only Live Twice which are high on my list of fave movies. Why does the other half have to spoil things? I was 10 the first time I seen You Only Live Twice and watched it multiple times since. About 10 years ago my wife tried to watch and said he didn't even come close to looking Japanese when they put make up on for his wedding. OK so he didn't but every time I watched it since I notice it. vmad

We were in Rome and walked up the street to the Vatican at night. Two weeks later were were home and went to see Spectre at the theatre. There was car chase down that very street. Blew us away.

Otherwise I'm trying to get out and shoot but not doing great. Can't even has some fun at the airport because there are hardly any planes in the air. This week I'm going to the local bird preserve as they opened it today. I have been mucking around with colour profiles again. Last time was two years ago.

A series of posts deleted.
EVERY DELETION HAD AN EXPLANATION that was sent to the member that posted it. No further discussion about them should take place in this thread. Feel free to send your objection to me via PM. Public posts will be deleted.

Since some of the deleted posts continued to dwell on why the other thread was closed, I'll attempt to answer here. Two main reasons;

- Politics. I should not have to say any more. I am surprised this is even a question. This has been a constant forum rule since day one. The thread slid into political debate often multiple times a day. Warnings were posted and ignored.

- Infighting and bickering. A group of members were using that topic to fight publicly, and then reporting their own argument! If the thread is producing daily reports requesting moderator interference multiple times a day by the same people creating the posts that are being reported, it leaves moderators few other options. Certainly few that are less heavy handed.

I post this here since this seems to keep coming up to the detriment of this thread.

Please do not use this thread or any public forum to ask a question that should be asked of the moderators.

Ahh, politics. From the Greek 'poly', meaning 'many', and 'ticks', meaning 'spineless bloodsucking insects'.

Many different kinds of blood sucking parasites are in the world. Some are inherently more detestable, while others make themselves even more greatly detestable via their repulsive behaviors even if they initially seem to be OK. Oddly, at times, some can become quite acceptable and in vogue, and even remain useful...the medical leeches are one example.

 :p

Associating ticks with politicians is a complete insult to ticks. They are nasty and all, but nothing like the poly guys. :):)

Don't bring ticks! By the way is going on? I don't remember even hearing the word tick or anyone getting one when I was a kid. We never worried about West Nile from mosquitos. We just had to be careful not to substitute Poison Ivy for toilet paper :-)

On top of everything else.

Life seemed much simpler back then. Kids could walk home and not be in peril. Front doors or back doors could be left unlocked.

Way way back there were dragons to deal with, mysterious mystical malevolent monsters, and things like the Black Death.
Then we apparently entered the Golden Age.
But now we are being faced with the dangerous blood suckers, the murder hornets (the Africanized bees weren't up to the task), and the deadly bacteria frozen in the thawing permafrost to augment the MRSA resistant bacteria we already have, not to mention the multiple cross-species virus strains.

Sounds like a B movie script! Next thing you know, we will be preparing to rocket off to space to escape it all. And find malevolent alien life forms wanting to settle on the same planet in their own escape!

One interesting thing about weather in this photo. From the bending of the trees at the back it is obvious that wind is very strongly blowing right to left, but the rain in the foreground appears to be coming from the left. I think this is a combination of two things: swirling effect caused by the house, and also as the rain slowed (with a slower shutter speed) one saw the rain decelerate across the image as it heads towards a more vertical alignment.

The closer the rain is, the more it is in the wind shadow of the house, thus the slower and thus more vertically it falls. Ain't life interesting!  :p

No, the photo seems to provide evidence that water in the toilet bowl swirls down in the opposite direction from the Northern Hemisphere.

 :p

I suspect you feel flushed with success at that one! :lol:

I was able to spend a bit of time on the she shed yesterday. My son napped for close to three hours, which was wonderful. The weather was lovely and it felt to be great outside. I have to say though, today was he first time that having a helper would really have been convenient, particularly on the roof. I was also annoyed that I made the thing so tall! Hopefully today I will be able to finish the roof decking and wall sheathing.

.
I've been quite busy of late, with both work and fun.

There has been a lot of work at my on-call job for the funeral home, with several long-distance transports over the past week. . Then there are the autopsy trips where I have to drive someone 100 miles for an autopsy, wait for 2 - 4 hours while the pathologists to do the autopsy, then take bring the decedent back. . So some 200 mile round trips with some time to kill between the driving to and the driving fro.

There's a good herd of Bighorn Sheep near the hospital where the autopsies are done, so I went to the cliffs to see if I could spot some sheep, and I had a pleasant surprise; a ewe with a newborn lamb! . I have never seen a lamb so tiny, as I usually don't see Bighorns until June, when the lambs are much bigger. . It was cool to see such a youngster!

I also found 4 or 5 Yellow-breasted Chats in a nearby canyon by using a playback call on my phone. . Then I headed for another canyon to see if I could find a Canyon Wren when the pathologist called to say that the autopsy was complete. . My fun time was up and I had to head right back to the hospital before I could find my Canyon Wren. . That's okay, good to leave something for next time.

I like mixing fun and play in with the work. . Makes life more interesting.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
