    Question of the Day: Saturday, December 28, 2019

    As someone else mentioned, only low power fireworks like sparklers are legal in PA. At one of the places where we lived in PA, our next door neighbor was a state trooper and a sheriff's deputy lived in the next house. They would be outside shooting off fireworks (powerful, illegal ones) around...

    Question of the day - Thursday 26 December

    I have been a night owl for as long as I can remember. I hated getting up early to go to school and I hated getting up early to go to work. Being retired I can sleep late. Our cats don't understand why I want to sleep late. So, my typical morning is get up around 6:00 to feed the cats and...

    Show me your Christmas tree (if you have one!)

    I guess we must be blessed. Our 4 cats have never tried to climb up our trees or knock down ornaments or lights. They do like to use the lower branches to scratch their faces. And, they love to curl up and snooze under the trees. After some catnip, they lie on their backs under the trees...

    Well, that's it.

    Congratulations on your retirement! Savor every day! It look me close to 6 months to adjust to retirement. I kept looking for things to do around the house (but not the honey do list...that is work). My employer had been opening offices for Information Systems people around the world to...

    Our Christmas decorating has begun

    The outdoor decorating is complete, and I took some photos and videos tonight. The video files are huge (over 100 Mb) so I don't think I'll be uploading them. Here are some pics: You can't tell from a photo, but there are penguins having a snowball fight. I have a series of balls of lights...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 14th of December

    When I was 4, my parents arranged to have someone (later I learned it was the twenty-something son of our neighbors) dress up as Santa and come to our house with a sack fully of my Christmas presents. I am an only child so there were no siblings involved. Well, that sure confirmed to me that...

    Thread Devoted To Sharing Your Favorite Albums And Songs - 2019

    My wife and I have seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra every year since 2006. Some years we have seen them 2 or 3 times. The Youtube video I posted a few posts ago gives you some idea of what their concerts are like. Most of their albums have a Christmas theme. Each year they change the set list...

    Christmas stockings

    We are kind of crazy about Christmas decorating, and, of course, we love our cats. Every family member has a stocking (with their name) including each of our cats. We also put out the stockings for all of our cats who have passed; putting them out gives me a chance to think about the happy...

    Question of the day, Friday, December 6

    When I was a kid, I would ride in the car with my parents when they would drive around looking at Christmas lights. I guess that was the genesis of my Christmas decorating obsession. Nowadays, my wife and I do what we can to find about homes in our area that have lots of decorations. We pick...

    Our Christmas decorating has begun

    We went away for a week around Thanksgiving to visit our daughter who is in Vet School at Iowa State. It was a 2,200 mile round-trip. So, my Christmas decorating is running a bit behind schedule. I work on the outside decorations during daylight and work on inside decorations in the evening...

    Is it too early to start posting Christmas songs?:santa: My musical tastes are far from the mainstream, and that goes for Christmas music, too. I am always on the lookout for non-traditional (or what my friend calls eclectic) Christmas music.

    Question Of The Day. Saturday 16th of November.

    Still got my vinyl of it, too. Bought the CD version because it includes the original album plus a live version of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida and the single edit. I can't remember how many times I played that drum solo in various bands in high school. :rolleyes:
