  Make sure you let your peeps know where to find you!  

JanF :: Sunday Morning Herd Check-in: Grazings and Greetings of the Moosekin
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.
- Ratings don't bestow mojo, online behaviour does.
- Only click Post once for comments. When a diary's comment thread gets longer, it takes a bit to reload and the comment may not display as quickly. Clicking the Post button twice posts the comment twice. (h/t Khloe)
- When creating a new diary, remember to choose the Draft option (near the bottom) while you are working on it. Choose the Public option when you want to publish it. (h/t Khloe)
- Finally, the posting rules for a new diary: "Be excellent to each other... or else"

(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

0 degrees (no degrees?) in Madison WI (2.00 / 28)

No degrees in Madison?? Not even a B.A.??;-) (2.00 / 23)

You would think that a university town would be embarrassed at having no degrees, wouldn't you? (2.00 / 22)

30 days until spring! (2.00 / 24)
3 degrees in beautiful scenic Bay City. I'm trying to figure out a way to turn the heat up outside.

Good morning, Khloe! (2.00 / 23)
My temperature must have taken offense that I called it nothing and decided to become -1°. :(

At least it "feels like" -1° also ... how awful if it felt like -10°!!!

Can you tell I'm tired of winter? 3-day forecast: Slightly below freezing nights, slightly above days. Same ol', same ol', and the BAD news is colder after that, with light snow.

Booooooo. Hiss. ugh. etc.

Spring will come, and it will be appreciated (2.00 / 23)
This feels like such a long winter. ((Moozmuse))

Hopefully, this will help.

Thanks, that's beautiful. And you are right, ofc. (2.00 / 23)
It has actually been an unusually long winter here, but the silver lining is that my cat will have fewer ticks this spring/summer...some of whom wander occasionally over to take a bite of me. :P I've had two Lyme's bites already, but caught in early stages and nuked with massive antibiotics, which I normally never take, but will make an exception for in such cases.

Good morning all! It's 30 in Wilmington and we survived the (2.00 / 23)
"blizzard of '13".  It snowed yesterday afternoon and evening but didn't stick because the ground is too warm.  I'm with Moozmuse!  Enough already!  Although I feel guilty saying that to y'all who have "no degrees".

"Pin your money to your girdle and don't talk to strangers."  My Grandmom's advice when I went away to school.  I don't wear a girdle and have never met a stranger.  Sorry Grandmom!

my day started too early (2.00 / 23)
with a ruckus on the back porch, by the time I got out there it was over but I was awake. We are bookended by crazy cat ladies and their uncared for animals make lots of problems. It is a daily opportunity to practice tolerance which I often fail to appreciate.

it wasn't loud enough (2.00 / 12)
for him to be involved. Flumpty is usually the only one up that time of day, she has early rounds to see to.

we'll have sun all day which will keep my S.A.D. at bay.

just looking forward to the warm summer days on the farm...sigh

have to run an errand so i'll check in later.
have a great day everyone.

Today (2.00 / 20)
I would just like to crawl into that picture and stroll down the lane. So do not like winter!

Have you ever tried a sunlamp for your SAD?

[ Parent ]
yes iriti i have a nifty one actually, thanks. (2.00 / 16)
it is very effective when really needed but the past two years here in Chicago have not been week after week of grey, sunless days. that's what triggers it for me, the grey, so far so good. :-)

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


[ Parent ]
I had a couple of them (2.00 / 15)
when I lived in Illinois. They do come in handy (well, that and a certain black Manx helped as well).

[ Parent ]
yeah, WHATEVER works, go for it. ;-} (2.00 / 15)
4 years ago i had it bad, it was March which is my least favorite month and i was sinking. my wife booked us a one week, all inclusive deal in Mexico the next week, maybe Xtalpa? getting off the shuttle bus from the airport, i stood in the middle of the empty parking lot in 100 degree beautiful sunlight and in 20 minutes i was totally rejuvinated.

i could actually feel the grey depression lift from my body like steam. one of the best trips we've ever taken.

Warm weather vacations for Frozen Tundrans can be dangerous. (2.00 / 14)
Many years ago I went to St. Thomas VI in early February. It was wonderful: lazy days on the beach, plenty of sunshine. But then I went home and WHOMP ... winter was still here! I did not see even a glimpse of nice weather for at least 3 months. It was very disheartening!

[ Parent ]
Skillful Skilling knows his stuff (2.00 / 19)
Is he still at WGN?

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

Buckaroo Banzai


[ Parent ]
oh yeah, Skilling is the resident weather authority (2.00 / 13)
here in Chicago. his forecasts are usually spot on without
all the hoodleydoodely other networks offer and he's still on WGN.
it's the only time i tune in to a network, for his morning forecast.
sometimes you learn a thing or two also.

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


[ Parent ]
I recently found out he was the older brother (2.00 / 10)
of Jeff Enron Skilling.

Getting the local rumorous dirt is hard to do when you just pick up the channel on cable.  :P


[ Parent ]
When I first saw Jeff Skilling, I thought there was a family resemblance and looked it up. (2.00 / 2)
But Tom Skilling is nothing like his brother. He is very personable ... light where Mr. Enron was dark.

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
When I took my dog out this morning at 6am, I noticed the light starting to show in the southeast. (2.00 / 18)
It was a hopeful thing ... but it was still damn cold!!

Tom Skilling was the weather guy in Milwaukee many years ago before he got lured to the big city. He was always very "energetic". I think that is a requirement for weather guys in the Midwest. We would not want a grumpy gus telling us our weather sucked and that we should all go back to bed.

You have SAD? Sorry to hear that. I have friends who have it and I can only guess at how the long winters in our neck of the woods would exacerbate it.

I have a question for you, dear occupant. Are you normally awake and alert between 5am and 5:30am during the week? I am looking for a volunteer to take the Thursday check-in to give me one more day when I only need to gently graze amidst the already gathered herd. Feel free to say no.



Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
Jan i would be honored and thank you (2.00 / 13)
for offering but i have 2 yes but's, heh.

i'm always awake then but Wednesday is Little O's weekly sleepover so Thursday morning, well, you know the drill on school mornings.

i am responsible for all early morning walks at my company during the week which begin at 7am and i am on open call during the week which means i leave the house at 6ish to get organized etc.. i'm sorry.

i'm sure you need the relief, just being a diarist i understand the effort and time involved and certainly appreciate all the morning crew and FR too. to your credit, you folks sure make it look easy.

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


[ Parent ]
Here is a "re-BUT-tal": (2.00 / 13)
The check-in diary does not have to be tended ... just posted so people have a place to check-in and don't feel anchorless in the vast blogging ocean.

I post it a little before 5am Central because that is when I can usually take a break to post a Fierce Jar with my weather. However, the draft diary is created well in advance (you may have noticed that there is a certain cut-and-pastiness about them) and only needs a click to change to Public and a click to Save. The only thing that it absolutely needs is a human presence because there is no Scheduling option.

That said, I understand not wanting to take on a responsibility that literally millions hundreds dozens a handful of folks have come to rely upon. ;)


Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
WELL.....since you put it that way (2.00 / 13)
i can certainly post and walk away at the same time, multi-tasker that i am. i just didn't want to promise something i couldn't consistently deliver, adversly skewing the mornings of millions.

i've been on the wrong side of an unhappy moose, a stampede of uncaffeinated Mooz we don't want. :-}

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


[ Parent ]
Ha! Yes ... click, close and never give it another thought. (2.00 / 13)
Do you want to try one this Thursday and see if it suits you?

The only requirement is that you have the day of week and something moosish in the title. The rest is free-form.

And no pr0n!!  I almost forgot that rule. ;)

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
fyi, i answered both you and CC on her reply. (2.00 / 10)
when you get a chance, can you just drop in the coding for the purple boxed links and the strike-through sentence? i'll mess around this week and ask any questions in the next few mornings.

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


[ Parent ]
Here you go: (2.00 / 1)
Strikethrough is done with the <del></del> html pair.

For example,

dear occupant is <del>in a world of hurt for Meh'ing me</del> very kind for taking a check-in day.

becomes

dear occupant is in a world of hurt for Meh'ing me very kind for taking a check-in day.

The color box is a table. Here is the code:

<table width="700">

</td></tr>

But you don't need to do that ... I only put the link in so that I don't have to go looking for the news diary. Lazeeee Meeee!!

[ Parent ]
dearest Jan, if you (2.00 / 8)
need a backup or dear occupant might in the future, i'm usually awake at that time, and would be happy to help out.

Thank you, Avila!! (2.00 / 2)
The way we set it up is that a person takes a day and then if they can't do it on one of those days, they find a "sub". For example, Khloe couldn't do Saturday because of her work schedule so she contacted me and I posted on Saturday.

So now you are on the official "Substitute Checker-Inners List" ... for dear occupant or anyone else to find you. :)

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
OK dear occupant and JanF - I can help tend the check-in comments (2.00 / 11)
on Thursday mornings if dear occupant can post the diary by the appointed time. Let me know if that would help.  

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.

[ Parent ]
i'll answer you both here. (2.00 / 12)
yes, this Thursday is as good as any to start and CC with her wit and charm by my side would be awesome. i think we have a plan.

of course you know that means you have to reveal where you keep the stash of pootie pics now. i always wondered but was too shy to ask. ;-/

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


[ Parent ]
Doesn't have to be pootie pics (1.75 / 8)
Can be gifs, videos, or whatever you can come up with.

It's a balmy 39 degrees here in the DFW Metroplex. I'm on a six day on one day off schedule, yesterday was the day off, and I'm whopped.
Teaching wears my brain out, and teaching people who barely speak English, let alone aviation English requires all the improv skill that I can muster.....it's really fun....but it wears me out!!

Off to work

Yesterday we froze our tails off, but trs got the doors built to the workshop. Next steps for him, trim the doors, add weatherstripping and caulk. Then he'll run the electrical and insulate. Next steps for me on the first warm weekend: stain the doors an oak color and paint the workshop a redwood brown. I am not much help building or wiring or such, but I can paint and stain by jingo.

The doors, untrimmed and unstained. I love their rustic selves.

Let me add (2.00 / 18)
those doors are heavy! 2x6 lumber glued edge to edge and 1x6 crossbucks. Those are heavy gate hinges on them - and a good, solid deadbolt.

A thousand thank-you's to Iriti and TRS for coming over from Near The Shenandoah River to Here Near DC Friday and installing a new kitchen faucet to replace the broken one I've been struggling with.

And... Mirabile Dictu! TRS even dismantled my garbage disposal and released this bad boy. It's a little lemon fork. I use them to feed the kittehs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.


Not a problem. (2.00 / 20)

Cooler this morning, about 49F. (2.00 / 19)
A pleasant day in store, somewhere near 65F in the City. Am meeting some friends for early brunch (well, okay, breakfast) at 9:30, which will be marvelous fun. :-)

In my mind, breakfast is the meal eaten before 8:30am. (2.00 / 16)
Anything after that (and before 11ish) is brunch. I refuse to call afternoon meals "lupper", by the way.

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


[ Parent ]
there is some confusion...late breakfast... (2.00 / 16)
early brunch.

and I guess I'm just 'some friend'...he's just lucky it's Sunday...the day of the week I take a shower...and change my underwear.

;7P

LOL (2.00 / 15)
I was practicing discretion, dear boy. You might try looking that up. ;-p

p.s. I realize I've made somewhat of an assumption as regards 9:30, but I'm sure you'll let me know if that won't do.

p.p.s. SO glad you'll be cleaned-up and presentable.

But cleanliness is next to impossible for a plumber godliness.

For some reason, (2.00 / 15)
...my mind has set 11:00AM as the defining point between breakfast and brunch, at least on weekends. Lunch is for weekdays. Entirely arbitrary, really, but I lost control of my mind some time ago so I just tend to go with it. ;-)

I would so love to see a moose up close (2.00 / 15)
I want to hear what they sound like when they breathe and chew. I want to stroke their antlers when there's velvet on them. I want to experience how they smell. Ahhh, the sensuality of the moose.

[ Parent ]
Careful!! They do bite, I understand. (2.00 / 15)
Not purple Moose like us ... but the ones out in the wild.

I'll stick to watching them on YouTube.  :)

[ Parent ]
I once saw a moose up close when I was in the (2.00 / 15)
Upper Peninsula of Michigan. By the time I got the camera in position, it was not close anymore. I'll keep an eye out for the photo, as I'm going through my stuff. It was a down and dirty shot, but it's my proof that I have seen a moose.
The moose didn't trust humans. I knew not to get too close. I got within 10 feet then it spooked.

I saw one while in Colorado once (2.00 / 14)
he was on the other side of a stream fifty yards away.

Fifty yards away was close enough, I can't imagine getting within 10 feet of one. Wow.

She looked down at me as I (2.00 / 15)
looked WAY up at her. She was really tall.

Chilly in North Carolina (2.00 / 16)
The snow missed us inland but it was still fairly chilly this morning. Warming up a bit. It cracks me up the reactions to snow and cold here in the South. After living North of Chicago this weather is balmy. One winter when I was there we had at least 3 feet of snow at all times and the ground was frozen for a mile down. I did this picture "Easter Egg Delivery in the Midwest" that year. ;-)

Good morning (2.00 / 16)
Cold and sunny here today

Will be in and out all day with showings, visits to my parents.  Hope you all have a good one.


48 hours to go - at least this gives me something to focus on (2.00 / 15)
instead of worrying myself to death.

Pretty sunny out this morning and not much going on.

My sleepy brain is slowly waking up, but I'm not feeling very lively at the moment. You all seem much more energetic!

Energetic? (2.00 / 15)
Maybe. I've gotten a good headstart on my coffee intake this morning, since I have to Meet People and stuff. Normally I'd take Sunday morning at a gentler pace. ;-)

Greetings from southeastern NC, and a moosie story for you (2.00 / 11)
After an exhaustive reconnaissance of my surroundings, I have found not a single snowflake after yesterday evening's Snowpocalyptic Weatherperson Meltdown About The End Times Winter Weather Advisories. Just sunny, windy, and in the 30's.

My favorite moosie proximity story was about 30 years ago when my [now] ex-husband and I and our dog Shadow were driving around near Moosehead Lake in Maine. We spotted a female moose grazing in a pond by the side of a back-country road, and hopped out of our Subaru to take some photos and video. We told Shadow to stay in the car and be quiet, a tall order for any dog in the presence of a large (and for him, probably odoriferous) mammal.

We got within about 20 or 30 feet of the cow moose and were absorbed in our photography when we heard a low but persistent growl. No barking. We tried shushing Shadow, worried that he would scare off the grazing cow moose. He kept growling until we turned around to see an ENORMOUS bull moose clopping along the side of the road towards us!

Our Very Good Dog was just trying to say, "MOMMMMMM! DAAAAAD! THERE IS A GIGANTIC DOG COMING RIGHT TOWARDS YOU! I am trying to be quiet, really, but you have GOT to get BACK IN THE CAR, NOW!!"
Here's our handsome protector, enjoying a spin around the lake in a motorboat owned by the proprietors of the cabins where we stayed.

hi! jan and i were chatting yesterday about her (2.00 / 14)
diary on women/girls being objectified. so i tried to pop by to say thanks for sharing a very important video from one of my DK diaries while back. such an important issue, and that video is outstanding! everyone should watch the full documentary (video is clip of that_.

i have another video today, released yesterday on the XL pipeline civil disobedience last week. we had a lot of guests at DK for week long blogathon, many attending the CD and/or rally today.

Today is not arrest time. so if you live in area, and might think about being arrested, that's not the goal today.

Sen. Whitehouse will be one of the speakers at today's rally.

here is video (hope it posts!)

ah, MM will not take video embed. maybe this link to video will work.

Use the old embed code - it works fine. (2.00 / 12)

Yay!!! PDNC in the house!! (2.00 / 12)
I am glad you got your login sorted out. I know you hate the tech stuff.

Listen to Nurse Kelley ... she is our go-to gal on technology here on the Moose. You have to use the old embed code. If all you have is the iframe you will have to do what you did there: link to the YouTube.

It's 40° on Pikes Peak - YAY! (2.00 / 13)
That's the good news. The bad news is the Chinook blew for 36 hours to boost out temps this much in February.

Anyone want a cat? I've got a sweetheart ... with vomiting and diarrhea. The stench is comparable to skunk, esp. in a house tightly closed up for winter. I think I'll find my boots and go hiking.

Yikes ... hikes!! Sounds like a good idea. (2.00 / 12)

I'll call my vet in the morning and haul his screaming butt down the pass. We're expecting snow - Jim Bob is not going to be a happy traveler.

Congratulations on your heat wave Nurse Kelley (2.00 / 11)
Sorry your cat is blasting stuff out of both ends.

[ Parent ]
Thanks, Bill. (2.00 / 11)
He makes it to the litter box for the aft end, but just stops wherever he is and urps. Between cleaning out the box and cleaning the carpets, he's got me pretty busy.

Why, oh why, do cats always puke on the carpet? What's wrong with wood and/or tile?

Just hugged goodbye... (2.00 / 13)
...to the three Plumbers (Glen, remembrance and TLO) and sent them on their way to the rally. I SO wished I could go with them. They brought their signage to brunch so I could see. Pithy slogans on VERY bright and eye-catching colored board. Should catch many eyes.

We had a charming time at table, followed by a leisurly stroll through the neighborhood farmers market, and then they walked me home. I love these folks so much! :-)

I'm so glad you had fun! (2.00 / 12)
I told Glen recently that it's wonderful they take TLO to events like this. She'll grow up to be wise.

Are you still on for the 26th? I should send you my phone number to put in your phone.

Just checked... (2.00 / 12)
...and you're in my phone's contact list - but only with an email. So, yes! :-)

p.s. TLO was shy with me at first, but after I managed somehow not to scare the bejesus out of her she warmed up. Great kid!
