JanF :: Wednesday Morning Herd Check-in and Open Thread for the Moose
If you are new to the Moose, Kysen left a Moose Welcome Mat (Part Deux) so, please, wipe your feet before you walk in the front door start posting.

The important stuff to get you started:
- Comments do not Auto-refresh. Click the refresh/reload on your tab to see new ones.
- To check for replies to your comments, click the "My Comments" link in the right-hand column (or go to "My Moose"). Comments will be listed and a link to Recent Replies will be shown. (Note: Tending comments builds community)
- Ratings: Fierce means Thumbs Up, Fail means Thumbs Down, Meh means one of three things: I am unFailing you but I can't Fierce you, I am unFiercing after a mistaken Fierce, or Meh. Just Meh.
- If you Fail someone accidentally, it is no big deal. Meesely Mentor Chris Blask on "mojo":
"The Moose doesn't do "mojo" in a standard fashion. Credit is earned on a more amorphous social basis than traditional blogoprofiling - more like real life."

(Some other commenting/posting/tending notes for newbies can be found in this past check-in and, of course, consult Meese Mehta for all your questions on meesely decorum.)

Here is a great link to have open in a tab: Motley Moose Recent Comments

~

This is pretty darned easy to remember ... the posting rules for a new diary:


Be excellent to each other... or else

From Chris Blask on Moosing:

... the Moose is an exercise in socialization. While there is a political tilt to it and we try to talk about serious issues as much as is tolerable, an overarching goal of civility in discourse is much more the point.

Like any group of friends there are moments when things can get a bit dodgy, either because some lunkhead is crashing the party or a couple good friends butt heads, but like any healthy group we try and usually succeed to come back into balance.

~

If you are a new moose (or an old moose) looking for a second chance to make a first impression, you can start right here.

Morning, Meese! 41 in the Hudson Valley at 6 AM. (2.00 / 23)
Normal high temp for this date is 37.  Going up to 58 here, 60 in the city.  A spring thunderstorm, with 2 inches of rain and high winds, coming in tonight.  Then, tomorrow, temps plunge back to below normal, with snow tomorrow night.

We are under a winter storm watch. (2.00 / 24)
It was 53 degrees last night when I went to bed. We had T-storms off and on all day.

We are expecting 6 inches of snow today then temperatures will plunge into the single digits overnight. The overnight low on Thursday night will be -6.

I think global climate change might give us all whiplash.

Not exactly a fan of the cold... (2.00 / 15)

It was moderate. The thing is, it was all over the place. (2.00 / 14)
From home to the train station and the train station until GCT, everywhere was enveloped in the same moderately dense fog.  I've seen worse, but I've rarely seen such density so widespread.

Lotsa rain and such here. (2.00 / 25)
Hopefully no tornadoes.

Good morning!



Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

G'Mornin' everyone! (2.00 / 25)
In the last 24 hours we have had rain, high winds, snow, sleet, hail, sun, thunderstorms, and fog. This evening, winter is suppose to return and bring us bitter temps and snow. The weather is changing faster then my kitty can change his mind.

Do you know where the Compatibity View button is? (2.00 / 13)

It is just to the right of the address bar and the icon looks like a piece of paper ripped in half.

I would try turning it on (if it is off) or turning if off (if it is on).

Compatibility information is automatically fed to you by the browser unless you opt out of it (which I always do, preferring to choose it as I feel the need). It sounds like something that got pushed to all the IE users over the last couple of days.

[ Parent ]
well, that's odd. (2.00 / 16)
that happened to me over at the orange, i accidently pushed C.V. instead of refresh, the same thing happened, disabled comments.

so i did that 4 different times this morning to no avail until now.
thanks Jan. i wonder if Kysen et al are fiddling around back there.
i responded to a comment of his this morning in NK's diary.

so i guess i can UN G R U M P now! yay!

I'm missing the buttons next to Fail/Meh/Fierce (2.00 / 8)
And at orange next to Fail/Rec too.  But clicking where the buttons should be still works ...  just makes it less (not at all) useful as a tracking tool for which comments I've read.

Posting at least seems to work just fine.  I'm using Chrome.


[ Parent ]
Iriti is having the same problem. (2.00 / 14)
I just asked her what type of browser.

It worked for a brief moment yesterday than went back to not working(IE9), switched over to Chrome.

Got home and logged in from different computer, same thing. Switched to Chrome again.

[ Parent ]
Here is something else you can try. (2.00 / 11)
If the Moose cookies being dropped (Moose droppings?) are no longer compatible with your settings, you can reset the Advanced settings to de-customize your browser.

Go to Tools from the pull-down Menu, choose Internet Options, Advanced Settings tab. Click the Restore Advanced Settings button then close your browser, reopen it and see if that helps.

DO NOT click the Reset button on that tab unless you are prepared to lose all of your favorites. It is the Nuclear Option.

I just tried that JanF (2.00 / 7)
and I went to your comment, hit reply, and the box came up.

Canceled that and now it is back to the same old same old.

Oh well, Chrome won't kill me.

Thanks for the advice.

i know my Nana never said that, no way no how. ;-]

ok, i tried your other suggestion and
can still only comment here so this thread
MUST remain active, everything solved. ok?

cache clearing. is it complicated? :-/

time...it seems to move so slowly until that day, when it doesn't.


[ Parent ]
People have tried clearing cache and it does not seem to help. (2.00 / 9)
So "Keep your cache cluttered, sonny!"

My grandmother never had a computer but she was whip smart and would have probably had good technical advice for us all were she still here. ;)

So things work in your active thread? When you close this tab and reopen it, you are back to not being able to reply?

Try this:
- Tools, Internet Options
- In the Browsing history section, click the Settings button.
- Change the radio button to Never. Click Okay.

(and tell me what radio button was there before: I am going to guess Automatically).

yes, it was clicked on AUTOMATIC. (2.00 / 8)
did what you suggested, comments ok here in
this thread but not in your help desk diary.

Morning... (2.00 / 19)
Currently 57° here, with a predicted high of 68. Tomorrow's high 43, and Friday's is 32. I saw a robin yesterday. What month is this again?? This is crazy.

Kidlet finished her behind the wheel class last night. She will be a legal licensed driver as of April 2 (the delay is because you have to hold your permit for nine months in Virginia before you get a license).

More coffee is needed before I go to work...

No matter where you go, there you are...

Please tell Kidlet I'm proud of her!! (2.00 / 17)

It is 40 degrees and foggy here in central NJ. (2.00 / 19)
I am about to re-boot the first day of school. This time I am hoping for more success. The good news is that blue jersey dad and I received our formal invitations to China for the worked bone research conference in April. WOOT.

69! in Dandridge TN (2.00 / 17)
first thing in the morning.  mmmmm

With a high of... 62?

The weather is so weird that even weather.com is confused. High winds and sever thunderstorms today. Batten the hatches!

Heavy, heavy rain now, (2.00 / 10)
and thunder beginning.

Still very warm here, very cold behind it, bad combination.

Tornadoes to our south in GA. We are up (almost) against the mountains, not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

Take care!!! (2.00 / 9)
Saw a radar about an hour ago and there's a line of storms from one end of the country to the other - never seen anything like that before.

[ Parent ]
Down to just a soaking rain from the torrential downpour, (2.00 / 8)
but the winds are picking up in the next few hours. By 11pm or so we should be out of the worst of it.

Big storm just passed through here a little while ago. The tornado sirens (2.00 / 19)
went off at about 6:30 am. It didn't last long, but the winds were crazy! I think a weak tornado may have passed over us--I could see the wind rapidly change directions, within a matter of seconds, as if the winds were rotating. It blew my barbecue grill halfway across my driveway.

I don't know if I am happy with the school district's decision to go ahead and run the buses during that time--there were buses out on the road picking up kids while that storm was blowing through. Not very safe. Why couldn't they have had a one hour delay today? It's not like they didn't know this storm was coming.


Many area schools are closed today. (2.00 / 17)
There is not much snow on the ground yet but we are expecting about a half a foot.

I think they would prefer to not have a schoolful of kids not able to get home at 3pm this afternoon.

At least you're getting some actual winter weather. The most we have (2.00 / 14)
had is a little skip of snow, and a bit of ice on Friday. I think this will be another abnormally warm and snowless winter for central KY this year.

Good morning (2.00 / 15)
St Charles Illinois is 33 degrees and wet.  Up to 39 then the bottom falls out later today.  Maybe some snow though.  I will take it.  I love snow and this winter has not produced anything worth calling snow here.
Oh, I have a cold.  Bummer.  But, my mom is coming to see the kids today so that takes some heat off of me today.  
Have a good one!

good morning mooz (2.00 / 15)
it's cold here but at least the wind has died down some. I've a busy day planned but first I need more coffee.

About 50 hours to go to interview time!! (2.00 / 17)
It's snowing.  There are accidents on the interstates making slow going an understatement this morning.  The wind is picking up.  There's around 2 inches down already, expecting up to 7.

A cousin is supposed to be bringing over an antique buffet this afternoon.  It'll be interesting to see if he really does make it.  This is a 'family' piece that my aunt got from one of her great aunts (I think).  She refinished it decades ago and is really nice.  Why her two sons don't want it is beyond me... oh well, their loss, my gain and it's staying in the family.


Just west of the Chicago Loop (2.00 / 15)
It's 38 degrees and drizzly gray.

I heard something about wind and rain and plummeting temperatures later today. I don't know the details and don't care to look!

I'm going to ride to work in the comfort of an automobile today rather than the norovirus express (CTA).


Finally warm here, but... (2.00 / 15)
I can't see so much as two blocks ahead of me thanks to the thick fog.  Unfortunately it's supposed to cool down again tomorrow and they're even talking about snow over the weekend.

Mid-Missouri seems to have avoided any weather unpleasantness (2.00 / 14)
yesterday.  Off and on thunderstorms all day but mostly just a good soaking rain.  Columbia is 37F (after a high of 67F yesterday) and there is a 50% chance of snow.  Don't think that will happen.  Having breakfast at Panera then off to the laundromat.  Such an exciting day (not) ahead.  Those of you who are in the midst of or expecting wintry weather, stay safe and warm.

I iz about tired of weird weather... (2.00 / 12)
Yesterday, muggy upper 70's until the rain hit, then the temps dropped. Now it's 49 and headed for a high of 59. It's hard the joints and makes for a grumpy Suzi.

In other news...Awwww Rick Perry has some bad news. The latest PPP poll show his re-election numbers really suck, job approval at 41=54 and his re-election numbers 31-62. Maybe just maybe enough Texans finally figured the emperor has no clothes. (ewwww, that's an ugly mental picture)

And then there's Greg Abbot he's decided it's his turn to be Guv...I can't stand that man. I've met him, my brother works for him. He's a heartless ass. Tort reform was his idea--The man's in a wheelchair due to the negligence of a company--I think. Anyway...He sued for compensation, he got it. First order of business when he became the AG? Tort reform, he got his but by golly no one else gets theirs! Jerk.

it's worse than that (2.00 / 11)
he was injured when a tree fell on him while he was jogging in Austin. So his huge award came from the citizens of Austin. To make up for that he used his award to start his political career and made sure no one else could ever collect from a municipality again-after he'd cashed his check. He has spent millions of state $s on a Chicago law firm defending the indefensible from our Lege. The same Lege he has consistently given bad advice to, including helping them draft a re-districting plan the D.C.. Circuit Court found to have the intent to discriminate. The guy is a legal incompetent on top of everything else. The only good coming out of our A G's office is being done by career staffers and some of them are actually quite competent.

I knew it had something to do with negligence... (2.00 / 11)
But I didn't know it was the city of Austin. My brother says he's more interested in having cameras around him to film everything little thing he does than actually doing his real job. And arrogant, oh my god. That man is arrogant. He thinks he's charming, but he's actually rude and obnoxious as hell.

I remember him hiring a big law firm to take on the redistricting issue and again for his Obamacare claim. Big bunch of blow back from the Dems on that one. He's suppose to be a lawyer--was even elected to the Texas Supreme court at one time, but actually practice law? Nah, he's too busy grandstanding.

it was negligence (2.00 / 10)
to have trees around a jogging trail for sure, the city should have known a storm could knock them down. Abbott's biggest problem is avoiding KBH's fate-being told to wait his turn until he realizes that turn would come in the next lifetime.

Good morning! (2.00 / 14)
I had such a fun lunch yesterday with some Orange peeps. The best thing was getting to meet side pocket's delightful missus, who couldn't have been more charming.

Lunch was fish & chips, with creme brulee for dessert. Yum.

Weather this morning is cool, in the low 40s, but we should see 60 degrees by afternoon. I can't complain. :-)

Good morning All! Mid-week. Two more days and its Friday...the child of loving and giving.  But Wednesday?? Gah... No wonder i feel this way today.... Full of woe!


I sense trouble (2.00 / 12)
I think the genealogy company I write and edit for (all my other clients folded or drifted away) is on the way to shutting down. They raised my hourly rate last month and now they've asked me to do some extra formatting on some of their documents.

I think they want me to squeeze out as much income as I can before it's too late. I've done a lot for them over the years and they appreciate it. But my workload is down by half last month and this month.

I don't know the name of the Senior Researcher who manages the research projects. They call him SR, the team SRT.  I've tried to find out from A, my contact who coordinates all the freelancers, but she won't say.

There's no communication other than emails. The company, shall we say, lacks luster and I never tell anyone its name.

There are a lot of freelance genealogy researchers but I'm not supposed to know who they are. I mentioned one once and A was shocked. I told her that "properties" on MS-Word shows the author. I haven't contacted any of them because they don't depend on the company as much as I do and I don't want to talk out of turn.

my controlled substance meds for three months in a row and refuse to check their records or their tapes to see what's going on.  they're getting a complaint filed against them by me to the state board of pharmacy, bc/bs, the federal DEA, and since i still know many many docs, copies of the complaint will go to them along with a courtesy copy to corporate walgreens.  after 10 years of being a very good customer they pull this?  fergit it...taking my business elsewhere!  found a nice young woman pharmacist at the kroger across from the w'greens.  will try them.  this is not going to end well for the pharmacists at this particular w'greens!  i'll see to that!

Had a very intense -- and hugely remunerative -- work-weekend, and have been flat-out exhausted.  Also had first visit with the holistic doc Monday.  She thinks my thyroid and adrenals are crapping out.  So there's an absolute boatload of bloodwork that has to be done.  

On top of that, I've been reorganizing the entire house.  It's been intense around here, to say the least.  That's why I've been so scarce lately.  But all's well in my neck of the woods.

Feeling a little more centered today (2.00 / 9)
Things seem to be looking up in general for many concerns I had, so I will take a breath and remember to be in the moment.

Supposed to get up to 60! today in NJ.  Going to try & get a walk in sometime today while the weather is nice.

Sounds like the NJ Gov race is going to be Barbara Buono vs Christie - other likely Dem candidates have announced they're not running.


will be in later to drop some fierces (2.00 / 9)
just got back from doc, i'm fine.  infection all gone.

before i forget, if anyone gets an email from me from this address mikalakis@btinternet.com, please forward it to me with the header.  only one person, and no one here has said that they've gotten one and i've changed all passwords and run malwarebytes.  i'm thinking it's a fluke of somekind because no one else has said they've gotten one.

thanks ever so much.  everyone have a great day, i'm off for a haircut.

Does the morgue wagon come with the job?
