Our daughter Sharon has run into this thing called FILE VAULT which has her and several upward layers of Apple Customer Service folks at a standstill.

Do I know anyone who has insider knowledge about getting around this that I can introduce to Sharon?

I use this same username on gmail and I will forward replies to her.

Frozen Daffodil & Snow Tire Festival time!

IBWO
That's what Resident Curmudgeon Columnist the late Richard Allin used to call it when winter paid one last visit to central Arkansas AFTER the daffodils got up and blooming. Someone had even presented him with a framed photograph of a clump of daffodils chin-deep in snow, with a snow tire positioned right behind the clump.

This morning, central Mississippi had its own version.Collapse )

That's because, except for learning model rocketry with the Civil Air Patrol cadets, it has pretty-much just been keeping-on keeping-on.

So there.

One thing Free Speech is very good at: letting others know how you *really* think, so they can make up their own minds whether they want to hang out with you.

or not.

This verse, which I use in the song as-I-sing-it, was found in the 1976 edition of the HOPSFA Hymnal, with no indication on the page of who actually wrote it:

The stars that shine around us are torches on the road.
Extending on forever, and with great peril sowed.
But we must travel onward; outward, onward again –
Exploring newer reaches, far from the home of Men

Does anyone here know [a] who is the mystery lyricist, and [b] how I can contact zir to get permission to use it in a recording project I have in-progress?

I SUSPECT FIRE ANTS MULTIPLY GEOMETRICALLY

IBWO
I am picking up the mail for a next-door neighbor just now, and yesterday I spotted a fire ant mound just across the driveway from her mailbox. On the way back to OUR house, I spotted a mound in the middle of our front yard. And there is a third one in our back yard, visible from the kitchen window.

This morning I went out to treat these, and on the way back from each mound I spotted at least two more mounds on each trip. Fortunately Spinosad drench is easy to mix-up, because 4 of the newly-spotted mounds were two-gallon size.

But I went through about 3/4 of the bottle of concentrate this morning.

At the time it was built, this facility set a world record for factory size, with 85 acres all under one roof.

There is a Nissan plant at Camden, MS which is very nearly the same size.
It is not *all under one roof*, but doing some measuring on Google Earth, then some simple math, I come up with a total of 95 acres of roofed factory.

Just exercising my Inner Monk here.
