How's your day?

Col's right. We do tend to look on other people to be similar to ourselves; relatively normal, rational people. Many are not. There are some complete dimbos our there. They obviously have mental problems and we should have sympathy for them.

Ah, the Darwinian death theory. Stops the idiots passing their genes on.

This one from the Darwin Awards website definitely could not pass his genes on

(27 Nov 2018, Arizona) The Buckeye Police Department reports that a man accidentally shot his own sausage while shopping in the meat aisle at Walmart. Arizona law does not require a permit (nor a holster for that matter) to carry a firearm, so our hero felt free to carry his piece "commando-style" (unholstered) beneath his waistband. When the unholstered gun drifted down into his jeans, he reached in and pulled the trigger while repositioning his weapon. This loose cannon's low hanging fruit didn’t have a chance. Firearm supporters can add this event to the arsenal of ammunition against gun control. Guns really do make a difference.

Phil, Some other puns from the site are :-

"So he went off half-cocked?" -J.Petry
"After this he will be definitely shooting blanks." -I.Titi
"His barrel was shortened that day." -A.Yuan
"Friends call him 'snubnose' now."
"He's not half the man he used to be." -D.Webb
"Clean up on Aisle 4." -M.Miller

Well, Mrs Compo comes back today. I've had a wonderful week of peace and quiet on my own - it's been great but whatever you do don't tell her!  Over the course of the week I have managed to trim all the hedges, all the grass, prune a big scyamore tree, sow poppies iin the local hedgerows, collect Parasol mushrooms in the local woods, remove part of a knuckle witih the petrol powered hedge cutter and almost break my shin whilst stamping on the stepladder to make it secure in the ground (I missed and shinned it into the ground). I've enjoyed a few pints in 'Spoons, organized a new sim  for my phone, vacuumed and done the washing and shopping.  I have also made an internal reducer for my home-made Pullman style bread tin, Got stuck on the sit-on mower by reversing into a fence and jamming my steel toecapped welly between fence and mower pedal and repaired the fuel lines on the peetrol hedge cutter. All-in-all a pleasant week.

Back to the doc's this afternoon for a different blood pressure med.  Hopefully the new one will have less side effects than the previous ones.

The right one can take some tracking down, Loppy, but you'll sniff it out. You have lots of dogged determination!

Only about 50% cloud here and it's actually warm when cloudy and warmer again when the Sun pops out.  First time for what seems like months.  :tanning:

 

I suppose you lot in the East Migglunds 'rain shadow' will all be basking in unbroken sunshine. ...:angry:

The weather's a bit naff here. Only 24 deg and it's been raining on and off. It seems that the UK weather is much better than here for today and for the whole weekend. I'm not tempted to come over, though.

Very warm and sunny here. We came over on your side on Monday but as soon as we crossed the Pennines the gloom hung over Manchester. I was supposed to be a passenger in my son's light aircraft trial flight out of Blackpool but it was called off. We did get fish and chips though and the flight has been rescheduled for the week after next. How you lot put up with all that rain day after day I just don't know!

Sitting in the sun, suppin' tea here in the West Migglunds. Might do a bit of 'Basking' in a bit, if this beautiful blue sky hangs around for a bit longer. Oh what a life. Just love this retirement thingy. Enjoy the day where ever you all are.:biggrin:

I finished my tea and laid back in my recliner to drift off into oblivion. What a lovely day. Suddenly I felt a tickle on my arm and without looking, I  just brushed the insect off. Back to oblivion, aaaah. Felt another tickle on my face. This time I looked and saw a flying ant. That's OK, one or two ants don't scare me. Feeling quite itchy by now, particularly on my legs and a little thought popped into my thoughts..........OH NO, Flying Ant Day. I'm covered in them. The lawn is alive. The lawn is like a 'Silver coloured life force of its own'. That's the end of my 'Basking' before it even began. Oh Hum! Has any one else got them today?:faint:

Over here they call them Termites and they will eat your house if they get to the woodwork.  New houses are sprayed before the sheetrock goes on.  You have bait stations around the yard to kill 'em off.  Have to keep all that current if you ever hope to sell your house.

 

In the 90s again here.  It's been that way for twenty days straight.  I did my shopping and filled my tank.  Now I'm staying in my air conditioned doghouse for the rest of the day.  Rain is forecast this weekend.  Sure hope so.  I've about given up on my garden.

Oh LL, I'm a fair skinned Blondie. I don't think I would survive in that heat. 'English Rose' I like to think. Husband says he will agree with the English part. He will suffer. Hope you get your rain fall at the weekend and I your garden soon bounces back to life.

Dave, ALL ants swarm from piss ants to carpenter ants and all in between. I think Carpenter Ants are far more destructive than termites, probably because the ants are adults and huge at side of termites, 3/8" average size to almost 1/2". Termites are just small "ants".

I'm with you on that, John.  Just seems like everybody here makes the biggest noise about Termites.  From insurance companys to pest control companys seem to get really upset about them.

DJ360..I am not a Hi-fi buff, but have often wondered about using two DAC's, one, is built into my amp, with optical input and unlikely to have true bypass 

,if such a thing exists at all, when it comes to Hi-Fi..thinking guitar pedals.

 

Amp was in the £300 price

range..so nothing special.

Using two DAC's does sound better to my ears but does, for me go against traditional principals!
