Good morning, everyone. 

My nephew played video games constantly with his friends from 13 through the end of college. It exasperated my sister. But he grew out of it. He told me he only plays now when he sees his HS friends. I guess it is like TV for us and radio for our parents. My nieces would occasionally play with him, but not much and never with their friends.   

We'll see if the groundhog sees his shadow today. Happy Candlemas,

Paul

Happy Groundhog Day from the shore of Lake Erie.  I am praying for an early Spring!  Susan

Dear Paul,

I am hoping that will be the same with my Grandson!   I only raised daughters and that was quite a while ago. 
 

Heavy freezing spray warning for our area….,seems like a strange weather forecast to read.  At least the sun is shining as I must go to the grocery store this afternoon!!  
 

Happy Candlemas to you as well!

Good morning Susan, Paul, and all.  The real cold snap still a few hours away here.  24 here now, warm

compared to the temps coming.  Think it's to cold to walk the pups until Monday but we do take them

out around the lawn and field during the day for a short walk.

I have about 140k miles on the Baja  I remember when you sold the Jeep and bought your car.  Only Mini

Coopers we see around here are college students.  Nearest dealer is over an hour away.

Didn't make it down to the farm before the cold snap so will be Monday or Tuesday before I get there now.

Glad Finn is still doing well.  Our pups are doing well also.

I will have to find indoor work to do next few days, hope you all enjoy the day.

Good morning, everyone,

6 degrees here early. Headed out in a bit for an early Red Cross shift. Hopefully no fires or any other reason to be outside. Though I always preferred extreme cold to heat, my tolerance for freezing weather has mellowed a bit with age.

I logged into ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence, website. It's pretty amazing what it can answer. The world is headed towards one of those science fiction movies where computers take over. 

Stay warm,

Paul

Good morning Paul and all.  It's -12 here.  At first I saw 12 and didn't see the negative sign, so small

on these readouts.  Thought we wasted our time leaving a faucet running but we didn't.  Just the

kitchen where its on an outside wall.  That will include all the pipes down to the well also.

Most of our things have computer control, hopefully we won't ever get those electromagnetic waves

that take out electronics because most things aren't built to take over manually.  I did a lot of work on

a 2004 vehicle in the computer control and quickly found out it had 8 computer modules in it.  Saw a

later vehicle like it had 18 computer modules in it.  Makes it harder to troubleshoot until you learn to

look at the systems differently.  But we couldn't do the things we do in devices without computer control

and other things would be so expensive we wouldn't have many of them. 

Looks like I will finally get down to the farm tomorrow.  Supposed to be 25 degrees in the morning and 40s

during the day.  Have to go to the old home and try to locate a vase my sister in law wanted to be buried in.

Among other things we need to get done.  Brother got pulled over on route 15 down there going 30 in a 70

mph speed zone and had to leave his car there.  He got held up after dark and he can't drive hardly at all

after dark.  Also hit a concrete berm, blew out a tire and cracked a wheel a different day.  Lucky he has friends

that will help him in emergencies because it would be impossible for me to keep racing 200 miles all the time

to help him.  Very hard on our vehicles too.

Very glad I don't have to go out and work in the subzero weather.  No critical jobs to be done.  It was forecast

well.  Feel sorry for the people that have to be out there, soldiers, first responders, and such.

Hope everyone has a great day.  Think tomorrow morning the pups and I will be back out on our runs.  Today

will be another day they will be stir crazy, cooped up in the house.  They do go out around the pool and play so

they get to feel the cold and know why they can't be out long.

Ernie.

Good morning, Sensatiional Senior friends ~

 A "heat wave" today with a balmy 51 degree temperature, 44 degree wind chill.  Expected rainfall soon.  And so, goes another day marked down in February.  I will be counting the days until April when we see signs of Spring.

Excited for our trip soon (ten days) to Anna Marie after revisiting the pictures of the condo where we will be staying.  A short (one block to the white sandy beach), a lovely pool and a nicely decorated condo.  I don't know if I posted but I made a grave mistake while booking our flight.  Instead of 9:35 a.m. departure, it was 9:35 p.m. from Cleveland.  Ugh.   I had to do a lot of fast chatting and begging to get the seats that I wanted on an earlier 5:26 p.m. flight.  I usually select seats up front and pay for those.... It all turned out o.k., but we are taking a flight into Tampa a day earlier and staying in Tampa that night before we drive up to Anna Marie.  Oh my, the challenges of not being as mindful as I could be sometimes!!!   Booking on line can be stressful.  Flying Frontier (no agent) to speak with personally!  Grrr.

The downside of this trip or any traveling we do, is to board dear Finn.  I know he is in a secure environment at Paws on the Lake but I worry a lot because of his age and just feeling abandoned.   The last time we boarded, he would not eat until I suggested mixing a few tablespoons of peanut butter in the food.  That worked.

Errands now to run.  I hope everyone is well.  Valentine's Day soon.

Can anyone help with this dilemma that I am having with automatic sign on to the smoking forum.   I need to switch over to Chrome (in order to save my password).  I need to know the COMPLETE sign in before I save my password….

What will take me directly to OUR pages?

www.delphiforums.com

Hope this makes sense.  It is extremely frustrating for me to have to sign on each time……. Chrome apparently will save my passcode.  For whatever reason, google will not…..

Hi Susan, I think it would be this path.

I had a similar issue with Edge. But I don't save the password. I only get signed out when I reboot or clear the browser, but when I do it takes me to Delphi's main page. Eventually I find this page.
