    Quote from Astro: “Quote from max.patch: “i just learned that there is something called the "american cornhole league" and it's a big enough deal that it's shown on espn2. i gave it a couple minutes but it's not my thing. ” Playing isn't that bad, but I personally don't see it as a spectator sport. Especially for TV as audiences. ” I was at the local brewpub recently and they had corn hole on the TVs.

    It only happens once every few years. Today we saw a Scarlet Tananger. It was a great sighting too. Not far away. Sat there for a long time in plain view. Male with his full spring plumage, firery red with a hint of orange.

    Quote from Astro: “If you are going to move into a tie for the MLB lead in Home Runs, you might as well do it in with style. ” I've never seen an ItPHR while watching a game - only on replay. Although it seems most all of them are due to bad fielding that doesn't quite constitute and error to turn what should be a double into a HR. In this case, the bounce off the wall was pretty odd, but shouldn't one of the other outfielders have been providing some backup? I recall seeing a replay of the worl…

    We'll be getting our new Highlander soon. They are offering 2000$ cash back right now. It's a lot like the new Subaru, but the Toyota dealer is a lot closer to home. We find of the 5 trim levels offered, the middle one has stuff we want. Going beyond that is mostly cosmetic stuff. We also add the roof rack cross bars and trailer hitch (for our pop up camping trailer). The new Honda is also nice, but they don't have a CD player. We are old school and need a CD player. We are not going to transfer…

    I heard in an interview with Carol Burnette that they filmed each episode twice and they would pick the better performance of each skit to edit together the show that was broadcast. The first show was by done the script. If that went well, Tim knew they had a version they could use so he was free to improvise on the second show. In these, poor Harvey had no clue what was coming and I guess that some of Tim's best moments were from these improvised second filmings.

  • Those overlooks of the villages are picture-postcard-perfect. Awesome.

  • Bummer about the washout of the trails and the fall. We did not get to Cinque Terre, but were in Pisa, Florence, Sienna, and Venice a few years ago. We did not climb the tower, but enjoyed it from below. I walked around to the north side and took this picture from an angle where the tower leans directly away from you. That way it looks straight. I posted it on my FB with caption about how the tower is less interesting since they straightened it. Had a few people fall for it. I also took the obli…

  • Excellent. BUT.... The tourist ruined the picture of the fishing boat. Yea Right.

  • Yes, Bear spray works. Here is a nice article that summarizes basic best practices with regard to bears by Tom Smith, generally considered one of the world's foremost experts on bears. Not only is it accurate and well informed advice (in contrast to what you will find in most on-line discussion fora), but he is also very entertaining. He makes bear safety lectures funny. backpacker.com/survival/the-truth-about-bears-the-skills Dr. Smith published a definitive study on the effectiveness of bear s…

    Went to the members-only pre opening party at our new REI today. I've been a member since 1978 but never been to a store. Got a free REI buff. They were serving free snacks and beer (New Holland Brewery). Blugrass band played all evening. Got a stainless pint tumbler with the local store logo for a 5$ donation to our local nature education center. Also got a package of freeze dried backpacking food. I normally don't use these but was intrigued by this one. It is Himalayan Lentils and Rice (Dal B…

His problem was he got started in the wrong key so the high notes were too high for him to reach. He should have sorted this out in advance and made sure he was in a key that worked for him.

    Quote from CoachLou: “We also have had a pair of Night Herons nesting the last few years but haven’t been able to get a good shot ” Never heard of a Night Heron before. Googled it. It is a bit like a Green Heron, which I have seen. We actually had Green Herons nest in the drainage ditch behind our house once (about 20 years ago).
