Snow! We have about 3 inches so far with an all-day fall forecast. Maybe 8". Maybe 12". Who knows? Wheeeeeeeeeeeee! I'm tempted to go roll in the drifts with our snow-loving boy dog.
Thanks Freehold! You may have missed Texas, but those of us in snow-loving Colorado thank you. You should move out here. I see snow on the mountaintops most days, and you can drive up to the top of Mt. Evans anytime in the summer for your dose of really cold weather.
Come... join us...
Getting ready to cook up the pies! We'll stick with pumpkin and apple today. I'm also making the sweet potatoes and some stuffing (traditional, in case the experimental chestnut dressing doesn't work out), then we're off to a friend's house for the rest of the meal. OM NOM....
Amby, Lynora.... yeah, I was thinking that meself. Love the pbp tab setup.
The events of 50 years ago today are the first memory I can attach a date to. As my parents sat on the couch with their arms around one another, weeping, watching the news, the world opened up.
Things on TV were real.
There were many, many cities like Chicago, filled with all sorts of people - real people - a lot of whom didn't even speak our language.
Some of those people, even though we didn't know them, have a real affect on us.
The world was a much bigger place than I ever expected, and it was a terrible, terrible one.
If you can, go out after it snows and when traffic is light, find a mostly open parking lot (with no cement space markers), and spend a few minutes in practice accelerating, braking, and turning in the snow. Try to get to the point you slide so you can learn to control it at low speeds.
I've driven in snow all my life, but I'll still do this with a new car, new tires, etc, to get a feel for how the vehicle handles and how far I can push it. I didn't do that with one vehicle and ended up spinning off the road into a ditch. It's worth the time.
No fever today, so I'll head out to the interview this afternoon. I can swing by MicroCenter and pick up a snazzy new headset, too. My old one broke and my UI review customers are saying that the volume is going in and out and they can't understand my evaluations. So I need a new headset. My current choice: SteelSeries Siberia V2.

And no, it wouldn't let me copy/paste. I typed them all because I am amused.

In other news, the programming examples in this Python class are horrible. I don't understand the value of learning poor coding practices during lessons. Surely there are ways to learn the language and good practice simultaneously.

Sorry about hijacking FAWTL and thanks to everyone who helped. I hope your PCs find time to raise a glass to Havok the Black! (remember the exclamation point) the next time they hit a tavern, and then wreck up the place. He would be pleased. :)
