I love Cyn! . . . and I don’t mean in a platonic way.
get in line Master Chief
half that hubba better be for me!
That tortoise is my kinda guy – a honey badger for the slow set.
Does the video work? I have had to uninstall Flash because, well, Adobe said “fuck you”, that’s why.
Hmm, just got advance notice that I can buy 2nd and 3rd round tickets for the NCAA Basketball tournament in KC for 2013. I think I might have to check into that.
Would be fun if my team made it!
I had to switch to Chrome. can’t get Flash or Shockwave to work in the new FF.
Did anybody curse the day that anybody else was born today?
SeanM EVERY FUCKING DAY
Too cool, Jay!
I hear ya, Chief; I was noticing this last few days an issue with pale moon and adobe acrobat so I uninstalled PM, and after more research, it turns out that the latest Flash update is fucking with lots and lots of programs and browsers. I have now uninstalled Flash and will reinstall a rolledback version of it.
i like PM too cyn, the 64bit is boss!
I caught the end of this movie on teevee this afternoon. I think it’s supposed to be a suspense/horror flick, but the last few minutes were fucking hilarious.
i dig the fishnet stockings on that one
i have 3 grape filled jelly donuts and a elephant ear
We’ve decided that this $10 charcoal hibachi-type grill is worth seventeen times more than our much more expensive gas grill. Man, I had forgotten how good bbq can be.
Stupid gas grill. Why don’t you just die. I’m so sorry we just bought new grates for you.
damn laura, id have sent ya a grill
CHESS THREAD IS UP. I REPEAT–CHESS THREAD IS UP!
Sean – I’ll alert the med. . . Aww, never mind.
“CHESS THREAD IS UP. I REPEAT–CHESS THREAD IS UP!
I will transmit this information to Vladimir!
smoker is seasoned ad ready for teh meats. Turkey breast, pork loin and pork butt soaking i brine as we speak.
tomorrow is gonna be a good day.
BTW, Car In, I am available to do voiceover work, should the need arise. Reasonable rates.
Nobody wants to hear a Connecticut Yankee in Detroit!
yeah, Medved just SCREAMS Midwest….
Medved kinda chaps my hide.
“Don’t call President Obama a socialist!!!!”
Me: “Fuck you!”
I am available to do voiceover work, should the need arise.
Are you available for monster truck rallies/drag races? Please send your “SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY reel.”
I’m with Chris ….. Same response as Chris’s when medved would call Obama “brilliant.”
*considers jumping in on the #ThingsYouWillNeverHearSouthernBoysSay hashtag game*
Nah. They’re still a little sore about that whole Civil War thing.
Are you available for monster truck rallies/drag races? Please send your “SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY reel.”
Oh HELLS yeah, I ca do that! I do that just to make my kids laugh.
Trust me, it’s not difficult. Just eliminate all sense of shame, dial the fake sincerity (which I have oodles of) up to 11 and go for it!
I tried listening to Medved a while back, but I cannot stand his “they are not really anti-America, they just disagree with how to best solve this country’s problems” attitude that turned me off almost immediately.
While back, Scott wanted to know why I was putting all these buckets and pails in the yard before a big rain. I told him our tap water is not as good for my plants as rainwater. If I can grab a little extra, I hand-water plants with it.
So he set up a big cistern under a gutter downspout for me, and ran a line from it to the garden.
It is so awesome to have rainwater on tap whenever I walk out there.
Surely you are referring to “The War of Northern Aggression!”
Wiser got his smoker already??
*regrets cooking up all this meat already*
Obama (and his ilk) have a desire to fundamentally transform America to something you, I and the majority of the electorate don’t want.
I’d say that he hates what America stands for in its current form.
Jewstin is getting pretty buff from all that manual labor:
Don’t know if this will work, but it sounds pretty good, to me.
So it goes…
yeah, I was stunned. 2 days.
Practicing this weekend and then going for the real deal next weekend.
It’s about the size of a large dorm fridge. 3 racks.
you’re welcome to stop by and try it tomorrow.
and Xbrad wins the prize for the Most Blindingly Obvious Comment of the Week!
I use the surf browser because, fuck me. That’s why.
We need a hangman thread. I can’t get enough hangman.
We need a hangman thread. I can’t get enough hangman.
No, I’m not a peckerwood.
Why you wanna lynch the black man?
HOWEVER, I am happy for Carin and her ads being read by a celebrity. That’s fun and I hope it creates lots of business!
When this gas grill gets accidentally run over by the lawn mower I am going to replace it with a smoker and a nice charcoal grill.
The gas grill era is coming to an end.
Wiser’s “sincerity comment made me lol (at the beach).
I liked his use of “oodles.”
Iffin you’re interested in getting a nice charcoal grill, I love my Weber Silver. It’s the kettle type, and it’s useful for indirect cooking, as well as direct charcoal.
Hahahahahahah….Scott! I like your use of “accidentally run over.”
Scott, I read about a website called, “Dailykitten.com” hope it’s not porn!
Weber is the ONLY grill to buy. They last forever.
Ha! I just got the “hangman thread”comment.
While I understand the love of charcoal grills, I really do appreciate the ease of using a gas grill. Quick, clean, and easy.
“I got your nose!”
I checked Mare, it’s safe.
Damn, I love having you around here….
Thanks! When I read about it I thought of you….hahahahah this place is weird.
I think the hangman thread is racist.
Jay, I had one of those for a long time. I got sick of fighting charcoal, especially in cold crappy weather, and went to gas. Gas is convenient, but charcoal tastes so much better.
I may be dumb, but I’m slow!
My husband has an electric smoker (sywm) that he loves, but he really wants one of those egg looking deals.
one more goddamned thing breaks around here and I’m seriously thinking of torching the place.
Main home computer has crashed, I thought the dishwasher was leaking, only to discover, after spending $50 bucks on parts, that it’s the garbage disposal that needs replacing, doorknob broke off the pantry door, wife fractured hand, I busted up my knee and just now, when I came upstairs to my office, I discovered that the toilet in wiserdaughter’s bathroom has been running for 3 days because it’s broken, but she neglected to tell anyone.
Oh, and I pulled out my power washer today that I had lent to a friend about 7 years ago, which he later returned 3 years ago, at which time I just stuck it in my garage, only to discover that he had returned it totally and irreparably damaged and neglected to tell me.
This would be the friend who I haven’t spoken to since before he returned the power washer, so kinda hard to call him to ask him to replace it now.
what a fucking week I’m having.
*hugs for Wiser*
My week just got immensely better!
Sorry Wiser …..focus on the meat tomorrow.
(Believe me when I say, I understand the whole “when it rains it pours” deal. Good phase for us now but in the past…whew…glad we made it to 25 on Tuesday.)
oh, and I forgot to add that wiserdaughter’s car got run into in the school parking lot, causing $1500 worth of damage.
…..focus on the meat tomorrow.
TAKE IT, XBRAD!!!!
Smoked meat makes everything better.
yay, I was useful!
Guys, raise your hand if you agree with mare…
Yeah, I think we have a consensus on this one.
And it only took 22 years!
Mare made a funneh!
“car got run into in the school parking lot”
You buying that?
>>“car got run into in the school parking lot”’
… almost 23
It is common though, happened to a bunch of people I know.
School parking lot…..JahahahahHa
My friend’s sister was a hit and run victim at the drive in movie theater.
The dent had pieces of concrete in it.
Hit and runs are common at the library too.
I just lol’d (loudly) again. Concrete……hahahahaha
Yeah, I knew a guy who had his Dad’s brand-new Impala totaled in a school parking lot. . . sorta.
I was at church….giving blood….when all of a sudden……
read the police report.
Yeah, I’m buying it.
At least we aren’t paying for the repairs, but still… FUCK YOU, INCONVENIENCE!
I got hit in the parking lot at college once, but there was no damage. Most fun part was mentioning it to my dad.
Me: Yeah, this girl backed into me, but there was no damage to either car.
Dad: *very suspicious* what do you mean by ‘no damage’?
Me: … I mean no damage. Not even a scratch. Jeeze.
He still checked it the next time he saw the car XD
Wiser – Why U gotta spoil our fun with facts?!
read the police report.
I’m surprised that police even came and prepared a report; they don’t waste their time here with private road or parking lot accidents of any kind unless there’s injury.
I’m surprised that police even came and prepared a report;
It was the cop assigned to the school.
Every school in town has a cop who is assigned to sit there all day and “keep the peace” (read: “collect overtime”)
. . . unless there’s injury.
It’s New England. . . somebody’s feelings were hurt!
Just teasing wiser! You’re due for a good patch!
It’s what I do.
I am a ban-hammering, fun-spoiling, angry bastard.
deal with it.
(And, I get hugs from Revvy and you don’t. so nyah.)
somebody’s feelings were hurt!
Well, they dad of the kid who hit wiserdaughter’s car is butthurt, because he wanted to keep the insurance companies out of it, then immediately started accusing us of trying to get him to pay for “previous collisions that the car has obviously been involved in.”
Other than scrapes and dings, that car has never hit or been hit by anything.
So, “Hellooooo, Geico.”
Just teasing wiser!
I know, mare. I know.
If I didn’t know how to laugh at this stuff, I would go crazy.
How do you know who hit it?
On the plus side, Yankees are on a tear. 8 straight wins, top of their division, and this is without Mariano and, until recently, Robertson.
It happened while she was driving the car. Kid in pickup truck backed out of his parking spot right into her.
Silly wiserdaughter.. instead of hitting the horn, she screamed and tried to put the car in reverse.
He took off? Smart.
Dad’s rates are about to skyrocket.
He took off? Smart.
No, he stayed there. And took tons of pics of wiserdaughter’s car. This is what his dad used to say that her car had been in collisions previously.
You’ve seen her car. Other than a couple of scrapes and dings, there is no damage to that car’s body at all.
Although, I guess the reason his dad didn’t want to get the insurance companies involved is because his kid has been in a few accidents already.
WTF? Sorry, I read hit and run earlier.
I don’t know how I got that out of ‘run into.’
I blame Mare.
btw, little douche who got my twitter account briefly suspended last night seems to still be suspended himself. All of his tweets from last night are gone.
heh heh heh….
*shakes fist at light bulb on porch that just burned out…
wiserson has his friends here for a sleepover tonight.
They think I’m a “really cool dad.”
We were at dinner earlier and we were talking about twitter. I mentioned that I was briefly suspended ad explained why. They said “You tweet?” I said “yeah. I’ve even tweeted to Barack Obama.”
They were amazed. “REALLY?!?! THAT IS SO COOL!!!!”
really? that’s cool?
If he is still alive I might know a really good autobody guy.
Quality work, 1968 prices.
I already found a guy here in town who seems skilled and fair. Older guy with semi-clean shop that is off the beaten path. highly recommended by locals.
We’ll see. I told him who recommended him to me. Hopefully that will keep him from attempting to screw me, but since it’s a one-man shop, I doubt he’s a thief.
Has the insurance company adjuster come out to look at her car yet?
Nope sorry, I send guys out to do that. I’m the chick with the check book.
shop guy gave me a quote already. We’re submitting it and we’ll see what they want to do.
anything I should be worried about?
I’m the chick with the check book.
how you doin’?
Not so far; looks like you’re doing fine but I’m available for a nominal consultation fee if needed.
Tell you what: I’ll oversee your claim for you if you can somehow fix my Acrobat.
Awwww too cute, Xbrad!
The timing of that pic, however, which uses an Adobe product to make it more cuddly better, just made me spit.
nominal consultation fee
you take chickens?
I’ll oversee your claim for you if you can somehow fix my Acrobat.
Have you tried IcyHot?
I think the 1968 prices guy might have been in Deliverance.
Maaaybe… have they been defeathered?
No, but I have tried BensGay and that didn’t work.
hmmm… does he work in a music store now, perhaps?
Just don’t get it on your balls.
yer doing it wrong
I don’t wanna know how that story starts. Or ends.
I got a pretty good idea of how it ends….
The broken one needs compost.
No balls here.
Sweet dreams, Scott!
You burned them off with IcyHot?
Mine are brass, baby.
HAHAHA….Pupster, if I could do that to my cat I would!
That’s what I need! Thanks wiserbuns!
I C WUT U DID THERE, Wiser.
Xbrad, your kitten link was excellent!!
Hi Mare! How is Hawaii?
Florida is hotter than HE double toothpicks.
You are one of the few who would.
Well, that was an interesting experience that I don’t need again. A “murder mystery” train ride from Austin to Burnet and back.
It was obvious, the clues were written for idiots.
the clues were written for idiots.
The train was kinda cool. I remember my dad tellin me he rode a train to basic training in 1949 from Albanny GA to San Diego. That couldn’t have been pleasant.
By the way, happy Fathers Day all you dads.
*dave crashes and burns*
Oh, it’s such a perfect derp.
I’m glad I spent it with you.
Happy Father’s Day, H2 Daddy’s.
I’m calling it a night cool kids. And, okay, since it’s Sunday for you east-coasties: Happy Father’s Day and Happy Birthday Rosetta.
During one of my Dad’s VN tours, my Mom took my almost 4yr old sister, almost 3yr old me, and almost 2yr old brother from Cali to Chicago by train. By herself. She tells stories about my behavior but she isn’t a credible witness.
Nitey night, Cyn!!! Thanks for everything you do! Smooches*
Vman, I’m in Heaven.
Both my girls have gone home, they were fun….I spend A LOT of time being grateful.
Mare, I am so jealous that you are in Hawai’i. I haven’t been in two years and I am having withdrawals. I’m hoping to go to the Lobo/Warrior football game in October.
At a Radiohead concert the stage collapsed, thank God it wasn’t Carin’s night.
Oso, H2 gets to me, I think of you all the time.
Yeesh. Looks like it kiled someone, mare.
Mare, I thought the same thing about the stage collapse. I want to go to the Honolulu Zoo. They have a mynah bird that likes to chat. Doesn’t one of your daughters attend school at Point Loma?
Oh .. shit.
Today was dad’s birthday.
Couldn’t remember why I felt all wrong today.
(((Hugs))) Dave. Your Dad’s birthday and Father’s Day. Tough combo.
What I meant is that loving it as much as I do, I understand what you love about it too!
Sean, it sounds terrible. One died…..thank goodness it wasn’t OUR Carin.
I’d feel kind of bad about giving her shit about going to see Radiohead if she died at the show.
She use to Oso, as a matter of fact, she also volunteered at that zoo for a year!
Point Loma was beautiful and Christian BUT, we are VERY glad to have her away from the “Cali” mindset, lifestyle, view of the world.
Mare, Point Loma is one of my favorite views in the continental US. Reminds me of Hawai’i. Our zoo membership used to get us free admissions to reciprocal zoos. The Honolulu zoo was one of them We would spend early mornings at the zoo visiting the mynah bird. Very cool that your daughter volunteered there.
Only time I’ve been to Pt. Loma was for Lex’s memorial service. Great cemetery. Nice view of both the harbor and the Pacific.
I swear, when we went to the Honolulu aquarium (which I LOVE) I thought of you. Haven’t been to the zoo yet but will hit it in your honor!
We would get free admission to the aquarium too! Have fun at the zoo. Really nice midsize zoo.
XB, the cemetery view is incredible. Lots of great Naval heroes there. Lex is in good company.
Point Loma is spectacular. Pepperdine has A LOT of concrete which, although the views are beautiful, the campus can be a little “cold.” She had her choice.
Been there several times… I worked at the Point Defiance Zoo. Great job!
Lex isn’t actually buried there. There was a private interment ceremony elsewhere. The Navy, however, in cooperation with his employer and his family, wanted to render military honors, and do so in an appropriate manner. They did so.
It’s really a small world. And it’s fun that people who have never met love and have in commmon so many places on earth!!
Very cool, Xbrad. Point Loma is right up there with the Punchbowl and Arlington for me.
I’m not ghoulish, BTW. There’s just something about national cemeteries. They tend to be in very nice places, and there’s a calm, a peace, that seems to envelop you at one. I like walking among the graves, seeing the markers and wondering about the people they represent.
I probably did two dozen burials at the Punchbowl. It’s actually one of my favorite parts of Hawaii.
Mare, I have an Aunt and a Cousin that graduated from Pepperdine. I remember it from Battle of the Network Stars. I had to look up Point Defiance Zoo. I was only in Tacoma on the way to Taiwan. We didn’t go to the zoo.
xbradtc, when I went to the National Cemetery at DFW, to put dad to rest, I wanted to be all calm and disconnected, for my girls, and the nieces and especially my nephews. They loved him so much.
When we pulled up on the hill, and I saw that massive flag at half staff… well, it was a helluva lot harder to maintain.
Xbrad, my father was on the board of the Catholic cemetery. I’ve never been squeamish about death and all that surrounds it. There is an incredible beautyand peace in well maintained cemeteries. We go to Punchbowl all the time. I lived on Prospect street which is VERY close and convenient to the Cemetary.
Gardens of Stone was one of my favorite books. I like cemeteries. We would go on field trips to local Taiwanese cemeteries for tomb sweeping ceremonies. Twice a year. I like to read headstones and think about the people and how they lived. There is an asian section at one of the older Albuquerque cemeteries. Railroad workers and early immigrant families. Very cool.
I kinda liked when we got to do the “full meal deal” at funerals with a complete casket team and a firing party. It felt… right.
But when we were reduced to sending a two man team to fold and present the flag for most ceremonies it felt cheap, and I was almost embarrassed to represent the Army.
As a recruiter, I’d occasionally get a call from a funeral director or family member asking if I could appear and help fold the flag and present it. I couldn’t provide a flag, but I could at least put on my blues and show that the Army did give a damn.
Taps is a deal breaker and I mean that!
Never read the book, but Gardens of Stone is one of my favorite movies.
Well done, xbrad……two man teams seem cheap indeed.
Dave, I have an hard time with Taps. So mournful. It was played every day on base. One of my friends provides Honor Guard duties at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. They have a digital rendition of Taps. There are times that they can only get 2 NG for the funerals.
Oso, we are simpatico!
Good night, good people!
The two man team (of Reservists) that came to Dad’s funeral were very professional. And had 5 funerals they had to attend that day. I took a moment to call the duty officer and mention (by name) what a good job they’d done. If I’d thought about it, I should have contacted the local VFW and asked for some representation from them. They often pony up a firing party.
And while Midway Presybterian isn’t a national cemetery, it’s home, and not a bad place to rest.
G’night, Mare. Dip a toe in the Pacific for me.
G’night, Mare. I gave my oldest nephew my Dad’s flag. My brother still has my Dad’s cremains in the closet. The Navy was great about everything but my brother can’t let go. He’ll work it out some day.
Oso, just say your updated cover photo. Where is that?
Big Island. North of Kona.
Kohala Coast. February 2008.
One of my traveling bears was stolen out of our hotel room. I was devastated.
Header pic has chipped fingernail polish on her index finger. It has been bugging me all day. Middle finger doesn’t look maintained either.
She has fingers?
Are you kidding me? All I see is the chipped nail polish. It really bugs.
Well, the multi colored nails are weird too.
Of course, the only thing that made me stop chewing my nail was getting all my teefs pulled.
I haven’t chewed my nails since I had an appendectomy when I was 10. I would definitely be chipping the polish in that picture. I want to chip it from here. Did I tell you it bugs?
Maybe if you didn’t paint ‘em in the first place…
I don’t paint my nails for that reason. I have issues.
I’m not at all surprised to learn that.
Yay for unions.
There’s an error in that article. California’s budget deficit is $16 billion. Not million.
Good point, Jewstin, I missed that. You doing okay?
AoS has a creepy morph of Nixon and Obama. So I went over to morphthing.com and tried to morph. I uploaded Michelle O’ photo and tried to morph it with Chewbacca. I got an error: choose two distinct photos.
I’m doing well. I slept in until 6:00!
I’m just catching up on the news today.
Mr. RFH’s cousin had this to say today, and I thought it was worth sharing. “Happy Father’s Day to all men, fathers or not, who have shoulders to cry on, come to the rescue, offer seats and words of wisdom, and are strong and loving forces in the world. 3 cheers to you today.”
**puts on waterproof shoulder pads**
Now all I need is to catch someone and make them cry.
So how are the world’s cutest anchor babies, Tushar?
Roamy, I threatened one of them that he is not going to the county fair because he keeps on doing you know what.
Heh. I laughed at my nephew this morning. He said he couldn’t figure out why his 3-year-old daughter was being a holy terror until he found his 2-lb. bag of trail mix with all the M&M’s picked out.
Ha ha. Toddlers plus sugar is a bad combination.
Good morning shmoopies.
Another lovely day, and for once I’m all set for Father’s Day and don’t have to do any running around.
Tushar, how many ear-splitting shrieks did your sons give you for Father’s Day? So far?
I hope all of you Fathers have a fantastic day!
Lauraw, since morning? I lost count after 37.
I want only one thing for fathers day: for my kids to give me no reason to have murderous thoughts. I am not very optimistic about receiving that gift.
James Lovelock just threw a handful of gravelly sand in the collective poons of the environmentalists. That will leave angry red welts.
Great. I was reclining on my bed, and the monsters were jumping around. One landed squarely on my groin, and the murderous thought came flooding through, mixed with ungodly amounts of pain.
Happy fathers day to the rest of you.
Happy Father’s Day, goofballs.
Sorry to hear about you gettin kicked in the balls Tushar. Except I’m laughing about it.
It’s a “kind” of sorrow.
My cat wished me a Happy Father’s Day. And by that, I mean he clawed my face and tried to eat it like a homeless guy on bath salts because I hadn’t fed him yet.
Happy Father’s Day, Dads!
I have this theory. Lets see how true it turns out.
I think Justice Ginsberg is very pissed at obama. She may be a liberal, but she is an intelligent woman. Why is she pissed? Could be anything. His lack of respect for Judiciary and the Constitution. His appointing women of questionable ability to Supreme court just because they happened to have the right skin tone or sexual orientation. His treatment of Israel.
The bottom line is that she refused to step down and allow Obama a third appointment. She knows that it will be difficult for her to last long enough to wait for another democrat in office, and yet she refused to step down on Obama’s watch. I think she would rather have Romney appoint her successor than Obama. Who knows, she might redeem herself in my eyes after all.
Or may be she was pissed because Obama henchmen brought pressure on her to step down. No one likes to be bullied.
Tushar – I don’t think Ginsburg has a problem with either the end-goals or the methods of Teh iWon. I believe the bullying was the the big factor.
Chief, it takes quite a petty mind to harm your entire worldview just to teach a lesson to the person who bullied you. Could be something else. May be she realized that what she is seeing in Obama presidency is the light at the end of the tunnel of liberalism. May be she realized what an awful train wreck that was. Who knows.
I talked to my dad around 8 this morning. He was headed up to the farm (about 15 minutes away) to do some work.
He texted me a picture of his corn plants a few minutes ago. It’s days like this that I really hate living so far away.
15 minutes is far away?
Just kidding. I know what you mean. My father lives on the other side of the planet.
Treasure your Dad while you have him.
Just a little pick-me-up.
OK, enough fucking around, I gots work to do. BBL
REM breaking up was proof that God exists. And He loves us.
Happy Father’s Day, Hostage Dads.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Hostage Dads of two- and four-legged critters
Happy Father’s Day! The roast is smelling awesome. Is it 2 yet? I’m hungry!
Mmmm I’ll bet it does, Jay. I think we’re doing steaks on the grill here today.
Reading about the military honors at funerals. Dad has done that for a long time, with Amvets. He had trouble getting people to go to funerals, right up until he retired as the post commander. After that, he still kept going, but he slowed the pace a lot. He presented the flag to my aunt at my uncle’s funeral. I often wonder how he keeps it together in moments like that. I was crying like a baby.
And is it the bigger towns that have less military representation? They always manage a rifle squad and 3 rounds for all the military funerals at mom and dad’s town. Up here, never hear about it.
I’m doing Iowa Chops on the grill too, Cyn. You just can’t have enough meat. If everyone goes for the chops, then I have roast for dinner for the week!
Winner winner, roast beef dinner!
I’m still having to putz around with my computer today. I spent much of yesterday doing that, after having removed Pale Moon and then scrubbing Flash and reloading it and going back to Google Chrome. I have had problems for days now with my Adobe Acrobat not functioning properly, and this morning I’m cruising my news sites and a Breitbart page causes my computer to reboot. Fucking Yay. Full blown security scan.
I’m gonna try a rollback to two weeks ago. I really hate doing that, but at least Microsoft got that deal stable a few years ago.
What are Iowa Chops?
Thick cut pork chops. That’s what they sell them as here. $1.99 a pound this week!
Weird, because I haven’t been having trouble with Pale Moon, or Flash.
We had some thick-cut babies a few weeks ago; slowly pan fried them with some Spike seasoning and then I whipped up an au jus sauce… OMG heaven.
I wasn’t having trouble with those either, per se, but when I would try to open a PDF or convert a Word doc to PDF… Acrobat would just spin and spin and spin until I had to use Task Mgr to end the process. I make and receive PDFs all day long.
I did read out there that many people on the ‘nets were having issues with PM and the latest Flash player with Gmail and some other web- and software-based programs.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Hostage Dads of…four-legged critters
HEY!!! I’ll have you know that my family paid a lot of money to have that hushed up!
Big sluggish issues too with the full FF and the latest Flash. There were a bunch of fixes that popped up in my searches, but needing Acrobat for so much of my work, I’ve just opted to stop using Pale Moon and go back with what I know works for my machine.
HaHaHa! Sorry ’bout that Seam.
I still haven’t reloaded my recipes into the hostagerecipes site yet. Mainly because I don’t remember what all I poated.
Massive amounts of cooking this week to put up in the freezer for Mr. RFH and the kids while I’m gone the week after.
Cyn eats babies?
Cyn, OpenOffice has a built in Word to PDF button. Makes word docs into PDFs quite easily.
FF completely shit the bed with flash. No videos, no YouTube, no nothing. removed and reload Flash and Shockwave – no joy.
I’m on Chrome now as I have exceeded my troubleshooting skills.
I AM CELEBRATING BY MAKING A BACON ASPLOSION!! ALERT EVERYONE!
I haven’t reloaded either, Roamy. I was able to pull from Google the following recipes:
Variation on a Theme
Jack’s Delicious Asparagus
Kahalua-Vodka Pudding Cake
Moronette Chicken and Garlic
Muscles in Tomato Sauce
I recall that I had loaded Mrs. Peel’s Sugar Cookie recipe and that Chrispy had sent me a spaghetti sauce and pizza recipe that I might still have in my deleted folder. Wiserbud’s pasta fagioli was in there. And I seem to remember that you had a potato and a vodka-noodle-somethingorother recipe in there that I’d been meaning to try. Oh, and Leon had a ground beef pizza “crust” recipe.
Not having any troubles with flash or shockwave on FF here. And I just updated both of them yesterday.
I have liked Chrome a lot but for a while it was giving me fits when I’d go to the mothership, thus the trial of Pale Moon.
I remember having to go thru these gyrations after a Flash update several years ago. Good times, good times.
Penne alla vodka. Yeah, that’s a good one. I may make that this week.
I made FF quit updating for a while because my computer would shit the bed every time it tried to download the update.
Cyn, any idea why the hostagerecipes crashed?
Cyn, I already re-posted the Asparagus recipe, so you don’t have to worry about that one….
Happy Father’s Day, everyone!
Last windows update really hosed IE9 so I’m on Chrome now. I backed down to IE8 but WordPress renders weird in 8 (fonts keep changing)
any idea why the hostagerecipes crashed?
A suspicion only.
I *thought* I’d seen that TiF, but wanted to make sure I’d put that out there JIC.
Windows updates. *spits* I have not done an update in years w/o waiting a few months first. I learnt my lesson about those puppies many moons ago.
How are you liking Chrome, Dave?
It’s fast, which is nice. But I don’t like change.
*yells at them fuckin kids to get off my lawn*
I’ll see you that, MCPO, and raise you this.
Daughter experiencing the joys of her summer retail job. She doesn’t like it.
Typical retail training is like taking your kid and throwing them in the deep end of the pool. Sink or swim with the added bonus of customers yelling at you because you are out of slurpy lids.
It’s hard for a shy kid trying really hard to do a good job.
And she still hasn’t learned to ask someone to relieve her for her breaks.
Smoking a great whacking huge slab of ribs and some chicken breasts. It’s raining like crazy, but I’m having fun.
Hope wiser and wiserbud got to fire up the new smoker.
I see more people over 30 working retail these days than teenagers.
She will learn a lot mom. Some of what she learns will be shitty, but it’s still a good lesson
Dave, yes she will. We think she needs this ‘exposure’ to reality. It’s a thankless job (if you are doing it right) and people can truly suck. On the plus side, it will force her to have to speak up and clearly….and most people don’t suck (if you are doing it right).
She will encounter kindness from some, and she will learn a whole new appreciation for treating people nicely.
Speaking of suck, what are the odds that one’s department manager and the supervisor right above her, are of the same nasty temperament? And they were both there yesterday talking to us in the same shitty tone, at the same time.
Because f*ck me, that’s what.
Beasnette got hollered at on her second day because the person who was training her, went home an hour into the shift. She was left floundering as she didn’t know where anything was.
She got hollered at several days later because they were out of slurpy lids and ‘NO SLURPY LIDS, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW. I HAVE ALL THESE KIDS!’ (um…regular lids?)
She was hollered at yesterday because noone told her that to ring a kid’s meal, she was supposed to hit the key that said ‘squiggle straw’.
…I should add that since day two, she’s been ‘flying’ solo……
I’ve been running Chrome. I like it better than FireFox. Lately, every time I get on Ace of Spades, my crappy little netbook slows waaaaay down. I think it’s the flash player, but don’t know for sure.
Beasn turtle? Is that a new confectionary treat?
Sounds like she’s hanging tough, Beasn. I learned so very much working a semi-fast food restaurant; people suck, but the lessons have stayed with me.
You, as the turtle, ^ up there, trying to make a break for it. Beasn Turtle.
I hear facechimp has an app that tracks stalkers.
They hired a woman to come in and ‘fix’ things. She’s above the nasty ones. She seems nice and is very positive. She knows they are nasty. She says to give her time. I’ll give her to the end of summer – when my daughter won’t need me close for taxi service.
I was a waiter in several restaurants when I was in high school.
Hated the work. Learned about life though.
“Romney Asked What His Policies On Israel Would Look Like: ‘Just Look At The Things Obama Has Done And Do The Opposite’…”
That goes for a lot of things.
Good lord this poat stinks
Gimme a minute, I’ll toss another one up.
is there a dead mouse in here?
