Even though one's head is not that large as a three year old toddler, I don't think I've ever seen flakes quite that big. The ones this morning were maybe about as big as my thumbnail (long nails), perhaps 1/2 to 3/4's inch. It might have something to do with the fact that it's a lot warmer there higher up in the air, being further south, and the snow kept getting tossed up and added to before falling. That's all I can think of that would cause that.

It was warmer here this morning than now. Now it's very, very cold and the snow is very small and 'hard' (frozen). That's mostly what happens here - it starts out large like that and then if it continues, it gets smaller and frozen. Right now, it can't make up it's mind if it wants to stop or not. Supposedly that stuff is moving out now. It does cover the ground pretty fast when the flakes are big like that. And it's slippery too! At least here it is.
There might have been some hefty updrafts keeping the snow aloft until the updraft could no longer support the flakes at the size they got. I know the plopping on the roof was rather unusual for snow, which rarely is heavy enough to make an audible sound as it reaches a surface. I remember Mom saying it had got to four inches on the ground in just 15 minutes. That's fairly fast for that much accumulation; especially here in the Southeastern U.S. Of course we were having some very cold winters in those years.


When I was 7, we visited in East Griffin in the winter months, as Pop was overseas on a Navy ship. That year East Griffin and Griffin Proper had several ice storms that coated everything with a sheath of ice. It was bitter cold.


As Grandpa  was driving us back to Charleston S.C. a really bad storm hit. During the storm a rear wheel bearing gave out. We had to bundle up heavy in the car, while he went and got the needed part, and when he got back, he went straight to work in the bone chilling cold to replace the wheel bearing.


We thought he would catch his death in the cold. Even all bundled up and hugging each other for warmth, we were shivering from the cold. But Grandpa got the repairs done, and we continued on our way. That was a night of real hardship to the point of being unbearable. But we got through it. It did make me a bit wary of cold weather after that.


While we here in the Southeast don't have as many winter stories to tell, we do get some doozies from time to time. I think that because they are rare here, when we have an intense winter here, it sticks in our memories really well. It becomes a good tale to tell.

Well, it stopped sleeting now.....

And it's SNOWING LIKE HELL   

That is NOT what I asked for Ray.......Geeeeez


LOL!  :(ROFLMAO: I don't know many people that can put SNOW and HELL in the same sentence!  HA!   

But you do it very well TL! :winks: :smile: :thumb_up:

I'm heading out soon.......but first.....

A BIG THANK YOU  to our staff.  Darkangel (Mary) Jherith (Michael), Sidherose (Rayvn) and Aelin who help to keep this place going and up to date and fun and crazy at times......

Without them, we wouldn't have our humble home.....and without all of our wonderful family members, there would be no need for this place we call the Fantasy Attic. 

There is no magic about the flip of the calendar, but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas.

Here's wishing you all a most excellent New Year.......


I thank ALL of you!   In spite of our grumbles now and then, The Fantasy Attic has been a great place to call HOME, and hang out in as I can.   Thanks to you the staff, we have the place.  Thanks to you AND all the people that also hang out here, this IS the place!
Happy New Year everyone!

Ray - hoping your weather holds Happy! for you, and you keep feeling better!

TL - May the SNOW shovel itself, the ice scrape itself and you can stay warm and cozy inside!

Jherrith - may it SNOW upon you at least once this year.   White, not yellow, snow...and you get GOOD students finally!

Mary - may someone kindly leave you a lovely fortune this year, and you get "it ALL" straightened out!

RodS - may your Health and Wellness FAR exceed last years! 

Agent - wishing you the BEST year possible!

Aaah... gmoong... oh my head!!!
And what's doing this wench in my bed? Oh hello dear, happy new year!
Mmmh... (yaaawn) yeah, maybe we had one too many yesterday night...
:Cup: :new_year_3: :champagne:
Yes, it must definitely be the beginning of another year, the symptoms are all there :tearlaugh:
Through the lifting fogs I begin to discern the images of the two of us popping the cork, firing a few XXL rockets on the balcony, then quick back in to warm us up with a schnapps or three, then back out again another couple of times in that thick cloud of brimstone, and then eventually... hmm, that's none of your business  :kissie: :pervy: :ifonly: :feelgood:

Well, semel in anno licet insanire, right? :winks:


Now after four or five  :java: :java: :java: :java: (thick espresso where the spoon nearly stands) I'm back to my old self again, just one year older and squeakier - but who cares?

And I want to thank you all wholeheartedly for this great insane Attic where since about one year and a half I feel free to listen and talk as myself without having to wear any of the stupid masks the world demands elsewhere - a simple straitjacket is a very convenient price for that! :tearlaugh:
So TheLufias, DarkAngel, Sidherose, Jerrith, Aelin, have a huge   :ty_luv: for running this cozy lunatic shelter and putting up with me without a moan. And another warmest :ty2: to all other members who hang out here to share their thoughts and their madness  :AEN: .

And eventually a last thank you to Kianna for saving me her needles and probes so far...  :nopanic;

To all of you

A VERY HAPPY 2019!!!

Yesterday around 12:05PM we were "no, not possible?!" because he started his 'music'. Fortunately it was a duration of 5 minutes. After, probably he went somewhere else for the rest of the day - and night. With any luck, maybe he is one of these so clever people who manipulate fireworks in France and had an amputation because of that. In his case I hope an amputation fo his head  :ifonly:

Hi Chiron!
Oh, isn't the first message of the year in this topic with the K's name? So earlier in the year?  ;perplexed: :tearlaugh:

Be ready to continue for having a shelter here.

So very true Fafnir.......and on that happy note......HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.  My :java: and I watched the Dick Clark New Years show from start to finish....so I was up when California rang in the New year..... 

I know I'm old when I didn't even recognize half of the performers....but it was fun.  Lorna had her bottle of Fake Champagne gone in no time....but didn't make it to California.....  Young pups....no stamina at all.

Chiron.....I normally wait to see what statements you come up with next...and yes...I read the small print...and glad the right party was next to you when you woke up this morning. It's a pleasure having you here in our humble home...

Happy New Year to you and yours also Sandra....I see you posted just before the big ball dropped.....  I'm not sure if I would have stood in all that rain so long......But those fireworks at the end were awesome.....Time Square will take a double crew to clean up due to all that WET confetti.   

McG....We all get grumpy every now and then.....and we are adult enough to admit it....  The only time I get grumpy is when I'm Mad....which is not very often.  To many other things in life to be concerned about let alone worrying about someone not understanding or liking what I say or said.  I let the politicians play that game...they're better at it..... :tearlaugh: :tearlaugh:

Fafnir....sounds like you both had a marvelous New Years Eve my friend....Glad you enjoyed the Cocktails ...

Happy New Year Agent.......Hope your night was awesome.....

"J"....Happy New Year and Listen to Fafnirs wise words.....All others agree with him.....

Good Morning Ray.....Good way to start the day hummm.....sorry I was late....but then again...story of my life lately LOLOL......Happy New Year to you my Dear Friend....

Heading out to Walmart shortly...why...to replace the locks on my sheds.....

I'll NEVER EVER buy these type of locks again.  Phil said they were great...he didn't tell me he only used them on chests inside his place...never on anything outside.  The stupid locks get ice in them....and they are a sun of a gun to unfreeze....This morning I had to get one of my handwarmer packs and put it inside a garden glove and put the glove on the lock for a 1/2 hour before I could even get the key in.  I tried my incense lighters...that didn't work...and with more ice and snow in the forecast....I want to get them now while I'm still pissed LOLOL

TL you bought Florida locks?   Don't they say that about freezing right on the package?!  ;o)

Any keyed lock can freeze up in cold enough weather.   Sounds like you have some of that today. 

It has got all the way back up to 18°F here.  Got down to 9°F this morning about daybreak.   NOAA local page said we were having light now.   Must have been over on the North side of town, I didn't see any new snow.  But, they say it is still snowing here, so I dunno!

Nope...nothing on the packaging except "Inside and Outside Use"

I gotta learn to stop listening to friends and neighbors and just do a quick check on my own...and I do ask the questions about how the items work for them....but they always use what they buy for different uses then I do LOLOL....

The only reason I care if the Broncos win or loose, is we get a free donut on Mondays at the local Kroeger stores. It works, but they only won 6 games. We need a 'raspberry' smiley for that one.

Otherwise, could care less. It's what men do instead of Olympiads and hunting beasts these days. Ya know...watch someone else get the crap beat out of them!

And with no cable or interest in foosball we have no idea what thou art nattering on about

oops sorry football :o_go_on: whatever

HOORAY, I'M NOT ALONE!!!

Was vaccinated in my early childhood against all team sports by a dumb uncle who used to take me to soccer games, where at 5 all I could watch for hours on end was a thick wall of crazily shouting asses :borednow:

Then later in life I managed to attach a rationale to such a spontaneous aversion: team sports are strongly suggestive of a comparatively cheap and bloodless (well, almost...) replacement for war, a relief valve to let out the steam of aggression originating in those little known animal layers deeply buried in our brain.

Of course I keep doubting it (never take anything for granted even if it comes from yourself) but any time I happen to be on an underground train together with a pack of loud gaudy sports fans complete with flags, trumpets, team T-shirts and ape-like behavior, that nail gets hammered in by another fraction of an inch :winks:

Well, I'm in here early since all thoughts of taking down decorations will not happen....Cold, with sleet and snow mix. 

As mentioned....I do like the Bowl games and that's about it....

Ray, I guess you didn't get a lot of donuts this season.......

I'll be in here on and off.....  Got things to do later on....but for now....I'm free and clear...and Lorna is at work....

Yep glad you got done safely Chiron!   

I had to get out today for maintenance to the ol Jeep.  But the sun was shining bright in a gorgeous clear blue sky!   At 20°F with light breeze, frost everywhere.  Jacket weather!  Knocked out a few things, and got off under $200  for all of it, including buying the stuff for the next oil change.  Darn motor oil ain't cheap at $7.00 a quart.  The synthetics are more I think.  But I use what I been using since the day I bought it.  And like TL, I like getting the engine to full temp a while before shutting it off for the day, or week. Especially in cold weather.   
Oil change, done.  New oil pressure gauge sending unit, done.   New gas cartridges for hood, done, two new turn signal bulbs, done. Aired up ol tires to rated pressure (45-50 lbs) done.  Light Truck tires, not passenger car tires.  Check radiator, battery, alternator.  Done.   Left for next month:  Lift gate gas cartridges, transmission oil and car wash to clean engine.  BUT the ol Jeep is rolling smooth, happy quick and easy now!  And cool.  Love the cool bit!

That's just in Michigan, TL. Look up in your top left corner of the video. They need to be talking about it in DC. Not like they'll do anything. There's also talk that the undersea cables for all that LG along the coast is what's making sharks attack, etc. They DO hear sounds underwater as do other fish. It's irritating. They don't care and neither do probably 95% of cell-phone owners. Ya'll will keep using them.

Greetings attic family! A quick stop before continuing with my writing. Hope everyone had a great holiday season and a good 2018. I read about snow, sleet and ice. We haven't got any yet, it was nasty on New year's Eve, like you said Lufias, down in the city the cleaning crew must've been pissed, lol. We stayed home and watch D.C. show as well. Called my mom in P.R. cause New year comes first over there. The picture I posted with the drink in front of our tree, is called coquito, don't know if anyone heard it/tried it before. It's what we like to call a Puerto Rican eggnog. Original recipe calls for eggs but a lot of us skip the egg(yuck on the drink). I make my own and get orders and others are Christmas gifts. I make it strong(rum) and that's how my friends like it, lol. Anyway, again wishing you all a great new year. Have a good night!

I guess the question remains, is the doctor looking at damage we all are experiencing NOW, even though we are continually told we are SAFE by industry and government?

Yes I watched it and saw a Dr. get all flustered trying to present important findings in far less time than she anticipated having.  And it being recorded per se was interesting in itself.   
The question posed is critical and needs be posed to CONGRESS, instead it's a YouTube.

So Big Business M$NEY will see her dead before anything solid gets done.   That's what usually happens.   Big3 Auto and Energy Giants put Tucker and his entire family DEAD,  same M$NEY giants put us in Viet Nam, Saudi etc.  I believe they will murder this nice Doctor too.  That's what Big M$NEY DOES, and we both know it.

She wasn't so flustered she didn't answer all your questions asked. I did say above it needed to be talked about in DC and not Michigan. It's on You Tube because it's a public hearing in a statehouse in Michigan on a particular topic. They do record them.

They don't have to murder anyone. No one is going to stop using their damn cell-phones because of it. It's that simple.

The way the Telecoms do business is they have lobbyists and pay ridiculous sums of money to senators and reps to vote their way. They give them gifts worth something, if becoming rich and powerful is your goal in life.

And like I said, no one is going to quit using it even though they may have already suffered it's effects. As she said, we have known about this for years. I've known for at least 10 years that cell-phones cause cancer and agitated behaviors. That's about how long I haven't had one. Not to mention the whole thing with driving/texting/talking/selfies going 40 through a red light - not yellow...red. The cell-phone has become the best friend, because best friends sit on buses in the seat beside one another and text each other. "All my life is on my phone!" People come over and sit in your house and play on their phones instead of talking to you. They're like having a pet oxygen tank you take everywhere with you.

It won't happen. It's like guns...when you pry it from their cold dead fingers.

Has he not ever heard of headphones? Idiot. Sorry you had to endure that hon :sad:
We are far away of the headphone. When police came last night, it was 1 hour it was 'music'. For the first time, he opened the door - and obtained one more ticket for that.  :ifonly:
When they left, he restarted 'music', but shouted before that. "I'm going to tear your head" was one of things he said between insults. I think he thinks I live alone :shrug: And he thought probably I would be afraid to go outside. But life asks to go outside and do what is needed. Well morning was like usual, and policeman appreciated the coming after that for a new lawsuit  :ifonly:
The police didn't come back a second time, but they took the call, and the patrol prepared for the neighbor a new 'ticket'. So next days he will receive it  :partytimes:

Concerning cats, one wasn't touched by what happened - she slept simply on my feet.
The second was so afraid she didn't moved during almost 2 hours, until the stomach was stronger than fear. I can understand her.

****
Oh I forgot: between screams, he was shouting "I haven't celebrate January 1st, I have the right"  :sure: And "one can't listen music 5 minutes"  :sure:

Good Morning to all.....

Busy day yesterday so I missed all the fun.  But on a good note....finally gathered up all the judges for last months contests.  When we have a double contest it's double hard to do the gathering LOL....But all is good.  I told all I need results this weekend....but not to rush their decision making :java:  ... (that went over well....NOT LOL)

See that Aelin..... Kianna even has the ability to scare the hell out of folks who aren't even near her.....print a picture of her and paste it on his door....that would keep him from entering his own place and all will be safe from his noise  :tearlaugh:

Was a busy day yesterday.....so I was MIA.....it should be a busy day today.....but I'm making sure it won't be....one busy day is enough..... :java:

So on that happy note I say good morn to Aelin, Fafnir and Chiron...and all others who are in here but in other areas....

Another :java: is in order......Ahhhhhhh

And next weekend I start taking down the decorations.  I was going to do it earlier....but glad I held off.  Nothing worse then a 1/2 decorated house  :thud:

Now I know Fafnir made some coffee.....

Ahhhh.....there it is

:java: Ahhhhhhhh   Thanks Fafnir....and now we start....

Do you know in France the tradition to remove Christmas decoration is to do that after the day of Kings? It's always the first Sunday of January, except years where the 1st is a Sunday.
So people will began Monday to remove stuff. For towns, it's more at the end of the month.
Finally you are in rythm with us :tearlaugh:

TL, that sounds great!   I feel that the decorations are right cheerful.   So I do enjoy getting some out during the year when I want a bit more cheering up. :smile:    The little blinking lights, the shiny colorful ornaments, very pleasant.   Ever so rarely though, driving through the town  :driver: I see someone with outside Christmas lights on  :shock: while they are sitting outdoors, middle of summer.  I guess I'm not alone.   :yippee: :explode: :crazysmile: :winks:

My cats enjoy the flashing colored LED lights too it seems.  I keep a few strings of the tiny LED flashing lights hanging to enjoy anytime.   

Some things with modern technology are just fine indeed!    :feelgood:

GMTA

Was able to figure it out when reading the Q & A details on them.

Popped two open and replaced the lamp but still no joy the suck ass part is I only have three more replacement lamps but there are ten in the string which one is bad which one is good.

Well except the second one that is bad as the base of the lamp crumbled as I was pulling it out

Will have to see if I can get more lamps for it or just break down and buy a new string which there seems to be very few available now

Sad how the cool stuff in my mind doesn't stick around longer then one season.

Are they inside or outside lights.   I've got lights from the 1980's that still work....and they have music chimes which still work......they are inside lights of course. 

Outside lights I have to replace every 3-4 years depending on the weather.  Warm winters do more damage to the lights and cords then frigid below freezing temps (As long as you buy lights just for the outdoors....like I do)......

Just got in from taking down SOME of the outside lights and pulling up SOME of the decorations and putting them away.  Here we are in January and the temp is 50 degrees.  Not sure who sent that to me but I'd be guessing Ray....maybe....

But in any case....Still have one set of lights in the shape of a Christmas tree in the yard.  It's on top of a Manhole Cover so it works great LOLOL...

Anyway....I feel refreshed now....Had to bundle up because Lorna said to...but sweated so much I needed a shower when I got back in...and now I'm as fresh and clean as a babies butt that has just been changed.... :java:

Considering that I don't get regular pay when on jury duty (I think, will have to look into that) it is a financial hit having to serve and that is no longer a reason, that one can use to be excused from the summons. Used to be, but it was not listed on the mailer this time.

Will have to see what the web site says.

There was one time back in my electrician days they did, make me the foreman, the case was thrown out because of something that was said in the opening arguments which they claimed prejudiced the case against the client.

The last time I was called I got tossed right away, why, the case had to do with someone suing the bus company because they got injured as they were standing up when it started moving. Problem was the driver told everyone to sit before moving off. They didn't and their defense was they didn't understand English. And the trick question they had asked was do you think one should have to learn English if you live here.

I said abso-frelling-lutely.  Why, I work as an electrician and if you don't understand English when I shout "look out" you wind up dead or injured.

For some reason they didn't want me on the jury. :tearlaugh:

My point, exactly.

Lawyer tells the jury including my mother that the defendant was arrested at a place called the Newgate Bar in Evergreen. My mother pipes up and says, "Newgate? Isn't that the name of a prison in England?"

They cut her loose right then.

Funny part is/was, that WAS the only Newgate my mother knew of from a book she read and we'd been through Evergreen many, many times but that's how really kind of oblivious she was to certain things. You can't miss that bar. It was the last building on the left as you departed town back for Denver.

But not my brain. No. My brain went "Hmmmmmm. I have to remember that when I grow up."

I drink occasionally.   Like two or three times a year.   In the heat of summer I can enjoy a nice ice cold beer or two.  Usually with a burger, or some pizza.   I have enjoyed two liters of Hiram Walkers Blackberry Brandy last year.   Right now, I kinda got a hankering for some Cap'n Morgans Private Stock Black Label Spiced Rum.   I think they got a bottle of it just down the street.  Heh!  Maybe next weekend!

That's a good job, J!   Keep it right man!

It's supposed to be snowing in the mountains right now. If so, that's great - as long as it stays in the mountains. It's hard to tell but it's not supposed to snow here this week. These days, who knows. Eye-witness weather is best. Lol.

Hope your cold didn't get you down again yesterday and you're feeling better!

Looking at the weather map, there's something coming down from around Duluth but seems it might be going more toward Toronto and Rochester. The only other 'heavy weather' out there is along the West Coast. Who knows where that will go??

Take it easy today :yes:

And back again tomorrow....  Double :thud: :thud:

But all will be well.  It's the crazy weather that does it.  Foggy today and it was 40 at 5AM.....now it's dropping and who knows where it will end up by the time I have to pick Lorna up.

But THANKS for the concern....

 The researchers looked at various factors in the following categories: family fun, health and safety, education and child care, affordability and socio-economics.

Presently between helping my sister and doing things here at the house has kept me busy and away from the forum.  Probably will have more time in the summer to be here when it is really hot outside when we hit triple digits.   Right now I am also learning to use Blender and how to model in it. 


Hope to drop in from time to time.

Post by: McGrandpa on January 11, 2019, 07:22:30 AM
Well it decided to rain a couple hours last night, and we need it (as always up here!).  Had a grass fire near the East edge of town just before it started raining.  That helped put out that fire!   Now I see NOAA has tossed snow in for tonight.  Presently it is 41°F and froggy.  FOGGY, I mean.   Ah no wonder my feet and neuropathy hurt so bad last night, we started off with 18% humidity, and went right up to 96% right now.  Once the neuropathic stuff acclimates then it's OK.  But until it does, whoee that stings!

Health note:  Finally getting to grips with the Endocrinologists plan with diabetes meds/diet.  Of the 4 times I do a Glucometer check (blood sugar finger jab don't sound so pretty) a day, I've been from 126 to 160 3 of them, but late at night before bedtime it's likely to be 240. Still, to see ANYTHING in the 100's range is new for the last two years!  I bout fell over yesterday when I saw 130  :yippee: when I checked before breakfast!
Just wish I didn't have to jab so much.  I am getting sore all over!  I feel like the Lilliputians have been machine gunning me!

It's been raining here since about 3 am, I'd guess. It's actually more like 'snain' than rain, with some bit sticking to the grass. The pavement's wet though. I'd like to know where it came from because there were no appreciable, visible large systems moving this way and it is huge, this morning. In fact it's where your rain is coming from as well McG. It goes all the way from Western CO. to St. Louis and down to about Dallas. There was NOTHING like that last night on the map. It just magically appeared out of nowhere.

There was very little over there last night - spotty along the coast from Washington to CA. Nothing like what's out there now or even close to it. I zoomed out and looked at the whole US.

This covers pretty much everything from the southern Wyoming border down to Texas and out east to St. Louis. That's a lot of real-estate. Oh well bundle up and watch it turn into snow, which it's getting more serious about just now.

Good Morning to All.

Sorry for being MIA once again but the new meds got to me.  Knocked me out and then some.  Though I did have to drive Lorna to work....the single digit temps kept me awake until I got home....and then back to bed.... :thud:

Anyway...enough of that....At least I'm moving today LOLOL.....

Mc-G   Good numbers but as Fafnir said....Move the little pricks around.... :java:

I see where the Carolinas may be hit again....this time with ICE.  It hasn't been their year for sure.  The Farmers Almanac predicted 11.8" total snowfall for our part of Wisconsin this year....they may be right....though I'm hoping they will be wrong....The farmers need more moisture than that in the fields since we really haven't had a big freeze.

Anyway....I'll see how long I can keep my eyes open and see what is what in our Attic....

I'll need more then a cup of coffee....I'm thinking a tanker of :java: might be better....

So I take it (meds). Not the best stuff to be 'allergic' to, is it? Glad to hear you're feeling better. It's a good day here to eat hot soup or stew and just be a lounge leezard.

Gia? Well, I'm gonna call it Goa - as in Goa Way. It's still snowing and still slush but pretty soon it's going to freeze - maybe. It's 34° at the moment and the sun's on the way down. Not that it was visible today!

It's always a battle with the Meds Ray....but I deal with it and move on....when the meds allow me to move :tearlaugh: :tearlaugh:

Steve just said it's stalled over your area....as long as it moves East...I'm happy.  Not Northeast...just East.....

Thank you Sir Knight. I was wondering about when that was going to affect things. Didn't realize about the thing in 2016.

I saw a video recently about that and it said it was moving faster and faster. It also said something about when it gets below 40° 0' 00" it would cause or do something. Maybe it was that it would flip - I don't remember. Have you heard anything like that or is it someone's imagination?

No TSA, no plane/equipment inspections, few controllers and now this. Pilots are not happy campers right now.

Yup, the south magnetic pole would be the north magnetic pole. Your needle would point to S instead of N. That's why it would be weird.

There are places on Earth where needles don't point to the N - magnetic anomalies. The pog at Montsegur in France is one of them, according to a friend of mine that is a geologist and had her compass with her. They're off but not totally reversed.

Good news on the numbers McG :cheer:

I'm sure all the poking yourself with that meter does wear thin real fast.

Ugh.   After the lancet jab and meter reading, then comes the needle.   Then late in the evening, two needles.   That's eight new holes to heal every day.   Almost forgot, every time I pick up Tattoo, CLING!  TEN new holes!  He needs his love too, every day, several times a day.   We're slowly working it out.  I think that for him, it is stating "I am not ready to get down yet!"

There was very little over there last night - spotty along the coast from Washington to CA. Nothing like what's out there now or even close to it. I zoomed out and looked at the whole US.

This covers pretty much everything from the southern Wyoming border down to Texas and out east to St. Louis. That's a lot of real-estate. Oh well bundle up and watch it turn into snow, which it's getting more serious about just now.

Title: Re: 2019 Coffee Shop and Gardens
Post by: sidherose on January 12, 2019, 03:10:39 AM
It's called a 'Lur'. They also used cattle horns for a horn as well as drinking from, but brass or wooden Lurs were used in the boats. They used them to sound in the fog in the fjords, to warn other boats they were there and probably a few other things like keeping centered in the fjord with the 'walls' on either side. Sound bouncing off therefrom.

That horn is very large.  I would guess it's an effect as it appears to be 8 to 9 feet in length.  Or the guy sounding it is REALLY small. Nothing like Gjallarhorn, of course.

In The Vikings special features, they say the DVD was remastered from 70 mm film.   The original was a magnificently photographed film!   I was fortunate enough to see it in theaters twice, in different decades and parts of the country.  Stupendous detail.   The DVD movie, not so much.  We didn't get those 'Special Features' at the theaters.  That alone was worth the $4 I spent on the DVD!    In the movie, that LONG horn looks translucent everywhere 'horn' is visible.  It is backlit from the sun.   The middle area is covered in hide and attached to rope for hanging from bracing overhead.   The entire town was created as a full scale living set.  Their longships were built for the film too.   And the director had some interesting things to say about the REAL longship all theirs was modeled after.   Their model didn't come directly from a museum, but from the bottom of a fjord, carefully laid out and reconstructed, and the wood preserved so it didn't disintegrate when dry in the air again.   I wish everyone could see the special feature Making Of documentary on this disk!
The most interesting thing they found?  It really puzzles the movie makers and historians alike.   The rowing benches and oarlocks were spaced too close together for modern men.  Except for very short legged ones, a bit under 5' tall at most.   How much does wood shrink after centuries underwater?   Or, were period Norsemen and Saxons and English and French a lot smaller than today?  Me, I dunno!   But that one IS a poser for sure!
Another really fun part of the film was the Running of the Oars with Kirk Douglas doing it live too.   Before the movie was over, I was wishing I was a Viking.   The movie makes it look so exciting!

Fafnir, I ain't giving up staying on the glucose levels.   See, I know it gets much worse than this, and the things that high glucose destroys in your own body are the reason I get scared of it.   Loss of toes, feet, legs, hands, arms, vision, kidneys.   Yeah, diabetes is a monster.   But it is MY ailment, I have to live with it, and I'm gonna learn HOW to live with it and reduce the level of damage it does. 
Its a balancing act, extreme.   The amount of food I used to eat in a week now lasts two to three weeks.  And that is still too much.   I USED to eat a lot.   Not any more.  I used to just gobble food.  Not now.   
I can find different areas of body fat to inject insulin.  And I make sure to use them.  But we only have 10 fingertips.  Working on making both sides of my thumbs sore now.  ;)

It worked for me  too, until the chemos.   Somewhere in the middle of that, over 5 years now, blood sugar started going crazy.   Whatever the pharmacy techs said do, I DID.  And it wasn't working.  I finally saw the one thing that did was the bedtime insulin, Lantus glargine.   So I asked my PC doctor to get me in to the next level of diabetic care.   He said OK! and sent me to Endo.  And after years now, I am seeing numbers UNDER 300 as the constant, even down to the 100's.  That I can see this is encouraging, that I am getting there with my own efforts, participation, is empowering.  I'd fight on anyway.  This makes me WANT to fight.

Gjallarhorn is because of it's size, usually mounted - in a jarl's village (at least), at the head of the fjord. It's a warning blast. It's the 'warning horn of the gods' carried by Heimdall. It announced the coming of the ships of others. Gjallarhorn is basically a Lur but it's very large so it can be heard a long way off.

I don't think this is all of the video I once saw, but don't rightly remember. It does explain a few things. Like they can be a very long simple horn OR a 'belled' twisty one. Being twisty allows it to be wrapped around the body for support.

I think I was 11 or 12 years old. I saw that movie 11 times in theaters. Haven't really seen but scenes from it since. Ya think I liked it?

It was beautifully filmed for it's time. I guess you don't realize (maybe) that the tv series "The Vikings" is the same story, except that it is about Ragnar (who was Ernest B) and then about his sons (Kirk Douglas was one of them). You want to see some filming? Probably about as 'real' into Nordic culture as you can get on film. At least what we know of it.

Wood in water expands considerably. They depended on that to seal the boats besides the tar. So it would shrink some when dried out. Nords were anywhere from 5'-7"ish to over 6 feet. The bigger, stronger and badder you were the more likely you were to become the chieftain or the jarl. That's how all tribal societies worked.

Slaves - usually people taken from England or the Continent were smaller people. If you're 5' 4" standing in front of a 6' 4" man you're going to see him as a giant compared to the short guy. They were tall because the people they came from largely were tall - probably the Sogdians and Scythians who both ranged back and forth across the steppes even to China. They're the Chinese Caucasian Mummies of the Tarim Basin. The 'great warriors' and chieftains took women 'equal to them' the rest got the left overs. The Suomi people of Finland are often mixed with Oriental dna. They're shorter, but sometimes they aren't. That's what Kitala (the soothsayer woman) in the movie was. The Khazahks are often mixed. There are people who are blond haired, red haired and light eyed. The Uyghur people are some of those.

Oh, I could go much deeper into this one. It's what got me to the Steppes and the Tarim Mummies and the whole world opened up then.

There were Nordic types living by the Baltic and Caspian Seas, as well as the Sea of Azov up further in Russia. They not only rode horses, they traded in amber (a lot) and other goods. The amber beads you see in Tibet come from there. Trade some amber, get some jade. I believe most of the 'barbarian hordes' except for the White and Yellow Huns where these Caucasoid tribes from the steppes. I know Clovis and the Salian Franks were and the Alans who sacked Rome.

Listen to this guy's music:  https://dervhengrym.bandcamp.com/

Well, that is to say at least the Yellow Huns (Ghenghis & Co) were from Asia. The White Huns (Attilla & Co) were mixed Caucasoid and some Asian.

Yeah Ray, 11 times?  Ya musta hated that movie!  LOL!    I go through spells of putting a movie on to relax to, enjoy and end up falling asleep  to.  Then when I wake I start it up where I conked out and finish it.  The Vikings was and is one of those faves like that.   Hey if I can find it in HiDef BluRay I'll buy it again too.  My new-ish 40" LED TV makes everything better.  Might call it Blue Bonnet eh?   Time to take it to the living room now.
So IF they used something extant for that long curved horn, did they get it from one of the now extinct elephantine proboscoid creatures we lost at the end of the last ice age?  My bet says YUP!  Pre-historic Ivory!  I just thought of that while typing this stuff actually.   :viking:

Um, extinct creatures.   Neanderthals alive today, mixed in our bloodlines.  And was reading somewhere years ago about a 'race' of men, "very massive, more robust, with very thick ribs, bony skull like faces and long sharp teeth" that either were killed off OR, as is going round while I was reading, bred out of being (dangerous).   They mixed in with the then current society they'd conquered, and after some number of generations didn't exist as what they came in as.   We see that happening even today, and you have mentioned things similar in the past.  So, you got any idea who these might have been?   I recall they came in through the Caucuses region, archaeologists couldn't be sure where they actually originated, but are sure where they 'died out'.  By the time they did, that area of current Europe was under their thumb.   Now nobody remembers anything about them.   No generational stuff passed on.  Just science digging the stuff up.  But the description of those massive conquerors made an impression on me.   And as much as you read about ancient folks and cultures, you might recall something that might shed more light on them.

The Vikings Movie held up against The Vikings TV series.

The movie definitely glorified the entirety of Viking/Norse culture.  It informed the viewer there were Vikings settling coasts along Western Europe as well as all around England.   To keep the Vikings from raiding whichever kingdom, they were paid tribute.  They must have been excellent breeders too, to be able to send SO MANY ships and warriors to all the places we now know they went to.  There is evidence, though kinda flimsy just yet, of a Viking ship sailing across the Arctic summer seas, down through Canada into California.   There are rock paintings showing a couple instances of what appears to be a Viking ship.  There is a tribe of Indians there with knowledge of them embedded in their oral history stories.  Described as 'the ship bears a carving of a giant snake'.  Dragon?   Said to be some 400 years old.
That was a fresh episode on Mysteries of the Abandoned last night.   Pretty good one.   There is a now dried lake bed in that area not too far North of the Sea of Cortez, at the top of the Baja Peninsula.  It is out in that lake bed the discovery of the rock paintings were found.

The TV Series.  I could not get into it at all, tried to several times.  The series doesn't glorify anything but sheer violence.  Blood and gore, raping women, killing off folks, kids too.   THAT is Viking culture huh?   There is no way in hell there were ever as many Vikings as that series depicts warring clan against clan at any one time.   No way to support that many people in that space depicted. 
War is violent, bloody, vile.   Seen that, know that.   If Vikings actually behaved like the rabid dogs shown in that series, they'd never have survived 'colonizing' other lands.   The Vikings I know of DID settle, colonize the lands they sailed the coasts of.   That is my Humble Opinion, anyway.

Yeah Ray, 11 times?  Ya musta hated that movie!  LOL!    I go through spells of putting a movie on to relax to, enjoy and end up falling asleep  to.  Then when I wake I start it up where I conked out and finish it.  The Vikings was and is one of those faves like that.   Hey if I can find it in HiDef BluRay I'll buy it again too.  My new-ish 40" LED TV makes everything better.  Might call it Blue Bonnet eh?   Time to take it to the living room now.
So IF they used something extant for that long curved horn, did they get it from one of the now extinct elephantine proboscoid creatures we lost at the end of the last ice age?  My bet says YUP!  Pre-historic Ivory!  I just thought of that while typing this stuff actually.   :viking:


Well I don't know, but the Aurochs was the largest of and ancestor of most cattle breeds including the Texas Longhorn. The Aurochs horns were about the same size as the Longhorn - less than a yard on each side.

The horns found have either been brass or wood, or cattle horn for smaller ones - not ivory. The Hebrews used Ram's horns - some of which are quite large. It's possible there were a few around if found and carved but that wasn't the bulk of them. Don't believe everything you see in movies. Lol. They do have SFX departments that can make anything.

Um, extinct creatures.   Neanderthals alive today, mixed in our bloodlines.  And was reading somewhere years ago about a 'race' of men, "very massive, more robust, with very thick ribs, bony skull like faces and long sharp teeth" that either were killed off OR, as is going round while I was reading, bred out of being (dangerous).   They mixed in with the then current society they'd conquered, and after some number of generations didn't exist as what they came in as.   We see that happening even today, and you have mentioned things similar in the past.  So, you got any idea who these might have been?   I recall they came in through the Caucuses region, archaeologists couldn't be sure where they actually originated, but are sure where they 'died out'.  By the time they did, that area of current Europe was under their thumb.   Now nobody remembers anything about them.   No generational stuff passed on.  Just science digging the stuff up.  But the description of those massive conquerors made an impression on me.   And as much as you read about ancient folks and cultures, you might recall something that might shed more light on them.


The Homo Heidlebergensis hominins had some groups that were 7 feet tall but NOT all of them were. They were the ancestors of the Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens Sapiens. Possibly it was them. Possibly it was BigFoot or Almasty as the Russians call them. I don't know and neither does anyone else really. It's all a guessing game.

TL, I feel for that guy that just wouldn't take care of himself.   So true man, that is generally the end result.  Sorry he is gone now though.   
I think you're right about that age thing and meds.   One thing I take that won't likely go away;  insulin.  What my body makes of it, if any, isn't being used.  It IS using the two I have right now.  That to can change, but I'll still be getting insulin of some kind from now on. 
You're right about we got to take care of our own self.   Nobody else can, and there is no magic pill to fix it right up either.   I will work it out.   I want to wear out a lot more keyboards before I slip!

The Vikings Movie held up against The Vikings TV series.

The movie definitely glorified the entirety of Viking/Norse culture.  It informed the viewer there were Vikings settling coasts along Western Europe as well as all around England.   To keep the Vikings from raiding whichever kingdom, they were paid tribute.  They must have been excellent breeders too, to be able to send SO MANY ships and warriors to all the places we now know they went to.  There is evidence, though kinda flimsy just yet, of a Viking ship sailing across the Arctic summer seas, down through Canada into California.   There are rock paintings showing a couple instances of what appears to be a Viking ship.  There is a tribe of Indians there with knowledge of them embedded in their oral history stories.  Described as 'the ship bears a carving of a giant snake'.  Dragon?   Said to be some 400 years old.
That was a fresh episode on Mysteries of the Abandoned last night.   Pretty good one.   There is a now dried lake bed in that area not too far North of the Sea of Cortez, at the top of the Baja Peninsula.  It is out in that lake bed the discovery of the rock paintings were found.

The TV Series.  I could not get into it at all, tried to several times.  The series doesn't glorify anything but sheer violence.  Blood and gore, raping women, killing off folks, kids too.   THAT is Viking culture huh?   There is no way in hell there were ever as many Vikings as that series depicts warring clan against clan at any one time.   No way to support that many people in that space depicted. 
War is violent, bloody, vile.   Seen that, know that.   If Vikings actually behaved like the rabid dogs shown in that series, they'd never have survived 'colonizing' other lands.   The Vikings I know of DID settle, colonize the lands they sailed the coasts of.   That is my Humble Opinion, anyway.


When  you have time, watch this video by Harry W. Crosby, who is the man who found and studied the Baja paintings. It's a little more down to earth:

https://youtu.be/Q7Qjyqdy92M


You might have noticed I have used Nords and Vikings. Nords were the Nordic people. The Vikings were those who went out raiding. And yes they were violent and scary, and if you ever studied anything about the Steppe people you'd see the same thing there. Nordic warriors were known to enter into berserkr states as either (bear-shirts) ber-sarkr or (wolf-heads) Ulfhednar. These were Odin's great warriors, as the Jaguar and Eagle warriors were the great warriors of the Azteca. If you didn't die in battle, you didn't go to Valhalla.

Not that all Nords were violent people. But the warriors were. In fact at the point where Christianity began to enter into their lands, the berserkrs were driven out as outlaws (utlagh), banished. That's why Eric the Red and Leif Ericsson went to Iceland and Greenland and possibly America.

You need to read more history and may I say, your aversion to violence seems weird for someone who likes FPS games.

Are you all aware that the FDA is now ending food inspections due to the government shutdown? Just thought I'd let you know. If that makes you mad, call or write to your Republican Senators and let them know you won't be voting for them in 2020 if they don't open it up. This is becoming very dangerous in so many ways.

And good luck getting your tax refund back - if you have one coming - anytime soon.

They HAVE moved separate bills into the Senate for a vote and one to keep the dialogue about the Wall open for another month while they get the government back open. It's Mitch McConnell who will not open those bills to a vote. Every time they try to negotiate with Trump anything he walks out. I don't know what news you're watching but I've seen him do it at least twice with my own eyes. He didn't even look at their first offer and threw it out in the hall when he walked out.

Obituary - Common Sense

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:


Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot.   She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers:



Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

No one here is particularly 'high' on violence. Least of all me. I put bugs, mice and flies back outside if I can. But I accept that History is full of horrible things Humans have done to one another since the beginning of time.

Good Morning to all.....  Restless night last night but finally fell asleep around 4AM.  Not sure why...but glad I could sleep in instead of having to get up at 5AM to take Lorna to work LOL....

Then had to do my Daily 10:30 AM Phone call to remind Mom to take her pills...and then spent an hour on the phone helping her with various other things such as, why is it so chilly in here (though I've told her from day one to leave the thermostat alone...she's still in the habit of turning it down before she goes to bed) so we got that fixed...

Then she couldn't find her pill box...so after 15 minutes she found it....in one of the 10 or so places I always have her search in....

And then we got the TV all set up so she can watch her New England Patriots Play.  As mentioned...she's in love with Tom Brady....

After all that I was exhausted again and was almost ready to go back to bed :tearlaugh: :tearlaugh:

Good luck on your new class "J"..... I keep hoping someday you'll students who will excel in your class....but then again....I wish I had a couple million laying around....and that's not happening either  :java:

Glad folks liked that Obit.....now for a fact about it I bet some didn't know.

At least your getting some sleep...that is a good thing....  And have to take a peek at the banner.  SLow today...

I'm a very sound sleeper so I don't hear Oz playing at night nor do I hear him meowing at my door (which Lorna tells me he does when he wants his breakfast).  Lorna hears it all though....and I hear about her nighttime adventures with Oz....

Well, now that was intriguing, nice find.

Did like the instrument he was playing, that would be something cool to model for use in Poser. Obviously would have to be done in Blender or Z-Brush to make it usable but damn that would be "smokin'"

Now :ifonly: I had any skill in either of the modeling programs :sigh:

Welcome Back Dreamer....  And BIG HUGS......The lessons you're going through are the same ones I'm going through....and though the body says "Slow Down"....the brain doesn't think anything is wrong.....and will keep trying to get the body to try and do things the way they USE to be done....which doesn't work....   

Am I really learning anything.....Probably not.....but I do try adhere to the new rules the body has implemented....for the most part :tearlaugh:

And good Morning to all others.....Missed yesterday in here....but had to officially close out 2018 and get all my folders and ready for 2019.... And there are MANY..... :thud:

Tomorrow I'll be MIA also.  I have an Appointment at the UW Clinic in Madison.  So that means a visit afterward to Krypton Comics LOLOL and WHOOHOOO

Glad you got some rest finally Aelin....enjoy your day....And the same goes to the rest of you....Have a good rest of the day.

The information about Sperm Whales is representative of all Cetaceans.  It also is why I feel strongly that ALL whaling worldwide result in the whalers being charged with and prosecuted for Murder, even if not cannibalism.  Cetacea are higher beings.   Not simply 'animals'.

That's great to hear Fafnir......

And now I have to get ready to make a trip to the store.  My friend Phil just had surgery and needs some things at the store....plus asked if I had an atomizer for his Vape.....which I do....and then I pick up Lorna....

So I'll try to get back on later today.  Aelin....in case I don't get back in time.....Have a most wonderful night.....

I can sympathise with her, I spend just about all spring on antihistamines just so I don't end up sneezing my brain out and to stop my eyes from itching.
I love flowers just wish I could enjoy them lol

Thank you for cocoa Fafnir, it's great!
Night was good, until one cat decided to 'sound' a little before the clock :shrug: Besides that, it was good to sleep.

Now it's a sunny day, and since a while cats are profiting of it :thumb_up:

Well  done Dreamer!   All 4 of my kids do regular type maintenance on their vehicles.  3 of them are women.  Good on ya!   Women in the 60's got me thinking about equality when I was a kid.  It always made sense to me that if people are self reliant, that's a  good thing.  Not something to be talked down cause a woman's "not in her place".   You ARE in your place milady!  And minding it right well you are!   :yippee:

Didn't it say the bones were found in Jordan, Fafnir? That would be the Near East then. There are indeed ancient breeds like the Pharaoh Hound and maybe the Basenji that were in Africa fairly early on.

Most of the ones I know of are very ancient breeds are the Hounds, like the Afghan, Saluki and Greyhound. Possibly the Wolf Hounds and Deer Hounds. Them I'm not sure on 'age' but know they're old. We'll probably find something else to tell us otherwise. Hard to say.

There seems to be a difference of opinion on Dingos. One bunch says the Aborigines came to Australia around the last Ice Age and brought Dingos with them. However, the Aborigines themselves say that the Dingo only came about 5000 ya with Oriental sailors to New Guinea and Australia. Now it's been mixed with other domesticated dogs and possibly the only real Dingos are likely feral.

:shrug:  Fact is, dogs and cats have been our friends for a long time, haven't they?

It seems to have stopped for now but it did snow an inch or two of wet slushy that dangerous on the roads. There must have been a bad accident over on the highway and the main street here. Heard about two fire-trucks, and ambulances and police cars that sounded like they were near the highway maybe half an hour ago. Hope everyone is okay.

I hope for people they are ok too. It's always hard to drive with the weather, but hoping for them it wasn't an idiot thinking he could drive like by a sunny summer day.

It was something like a neutral day, but better than a worse day :yes:  (and it's there where I see I forgot the no news :tearlaugh: )

Amen to the fur babies!   BIL come in, visited a bit, left.  Door blew open after he went out the back. Wind is whooping fierce tonight.   Got snow, bit of sleet too.  Tattoo goes out the back door, Mogwai goes out the FRONT door.   OK.  Weird.  This is the first time Mogwai has put his paws down in snow.  He didn't like it either.   Should have seen him,  hopping all 4's, yowling at ME and hissing at the ground.  Ha!  Tattoo comes around front and huddles down, mewling like a kitten.  Back and head covered in snow and sleet.  Me out in T shirt, shorts and house slippers.   Neighbor chuckling.  I say "You want some goodie?!"  And they're IN the house like a shot.  Gee.   Tattoo has seen a bunch of snow in his 9+ years, this is Moggies first in 6 years, and he was funny.   All I knew was "Wheres the boys!!!???"  Scared me.  But they're fine, had some goodie, grooming in front of heater now.   Heh!

Good Sunday morning!

Glad to see that TL has returned.  I hope you have recovered, my friend.
This past week was the home stretch on evaluations (part 1 of 5.  :nopanic; ) so I've been herding the cats / shoveling frogs back into the wheelbarrow / working to make us all successful [I learned that last one in a seminar.]


Good Morning Sir Knight.   

I was concerned about you also since I didn't see many posts from you during my absence.....but I'd rather have my dilemma then yours......That certainly was the toughest part of my job.....  But after a while we become champs at it....well....not really....but it sounded great in my head.

Now, now, my friend....don't be so hard on her. You forget her good points!

After all.....

Who scares the hell out of the vermin in the hallways??? - She does!
Who cleans your system out faster than ANY laxative on the market??? - She does!
Who's face causes loose paint on the walls fall to the floor for easy cleanup??? - Her face!
Who keeps small rabid dogs from attacking 'J's' nether regions??? - She does!
Who can scare even the criminally insane straight??? - She can!

So give credit where credit is due.

Soooo.... Right now in Newport RI it's 43 degrees and they are missing out on the snow....but they are getting a lot of rain..... 

When Mom wakes up tomorrow morning.....the temp will be 7 degrees....and it will get all the way up to 10 degrees for the day.....   with blustery winds.....  so it will feel much colder....

Now THAT'S a temperature drop and then some.   

We woke up to -3 degrees this morning but now it's a warm 9 degrees here in Monroe....

Nice book collection, but once again you forgot that Kianna is a fictional character and as such would have no heat signature so your special glasses are useless.

That's supposed to start changing here tomorrow with 30s and 40s and wet - whatever form that takes, snow, rain or snain. I'm betting it's the later with those temperatures. Another MOOSH-fest! They just got all the last one cleaned up yesterday. Poor guys.

Yea, moosh is better than crunch for sure! But it's dangerous before and after the sun comes up/goes down. It can move your tires into another lane before you know it, if you're not driving carefully. We've got so many 'Aliens' here now it's kind of scary out there.

Indeed.  We had our first real BIG snow here  (We've had snow earlier on...but here one day...gone the next) but this stuff is here for a bit....and as you said...the roads warm up in the daytime when the sun is out...and yes folks, snow does melt on roads even in freezing temps, and then refreezes at night making it absolutely scary when one is out and about....especially when folks haven't had a lot of snow driving this year due to the warmer temps....

Good morning guys!
Well, ye ole PD Artist 11.4 free upgrade went down very easy, must be because very few are awake at the moment.

Went down without a hitch and the code worked first time no muss, no fuss
Took it just before midday here :yes: And it's installed already.  :ifonly:
Now I have to talk of Daz freebies - if they are free :tearlaugh:

Good Morning to all.

I got my Howler also....had the other two version they listed as "Just In Case" already...so all went well. 

DrX....the reason folks make newer versions is because they've learned from past mistakes.  What you tried then is not what they have now....at least in my eyes.....

Anyway...to each their own....plus it's free....so if one doesn't like it...toss it.  :tearlaugh:

Frigid this morning when I took Lorna to work.  Took a 1/2 drive after I dropped her off to make sure the vehicle was properly warmed up and all systems were working.  One does not just start a vehicle, make a short run, and park it when the temps are below freezing.  Not good for the vehicle at all....especially the muffler.  Condensation builds in there something wicked.

There....Auto Class 1.1 is now over.

And I'm thinking I'll grab my :java: and take a tour since a certain someone mentioned Daz...and Freebies.

Doing Laundry now also, and then will take down the Christmas Tree, and put my knick knacks back up....and the house will be normal once again....almost  :java:

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Blue sky and sunshine here today at least for now.


In summer in the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun's most extreme latitude is 23° and 20 some minutes North (Tropic of Cancer). In the Southern Hemisphere the Sun's most extreme latitude is 23° and 20 some minutes South (Tropic of Capricorn). That is, there is a full 46+ degrees of tilt there at it's extremity between our Summer and theirs'.

Mmmm, reminds me of Joplin's "Full-Tilt Boogie" band. Lol.

I suspect the umbra was pretty dark last night because the Moon was close to perigee with the Earth and so the shadow/umbra was darker than it would have been had the Moon been further out from us.

Most of closed holidays are followed by all France when we have one.
The only exception is December 26th, it's just for East or country (for Alsace). But that it's just because they haven't to apply completely the law on the separation of Church and State - when it passed in 1905 they were part of Germany.
So people there profit of one more day to rest their bodies... probably not their stomachs :psycho:

Alas we are more than 2 hours after the call to the police. I have no hope they come, they just probably don't want to send a vehicle "again" like the person at standard said. They start to know the phone number :shrug:
"as soon as they can" is 90% of time their way to said they won't come. Specially over 1 hour of wait. Only the bad night and bad person to standard, and we have only 1 person by night :sigh:

I tell you excellent end of day, yet I will stay a moment.

Understood and I agree, though I kinda forgot about the 23° of tilt in the other direction.   Pretty vast "precession" that, I believe you pointed out before?   Without that, the Earth would be stuck with one season everywhere, whether cold or hot.   

I was looking at Space.com's info about this eclipse, and they put up more than usually seen.  Our range of longitude here in the Americas got to see pretty much the full umbra in eclipse this time.   I know I stood outside in 25° popsicle stuff for a bit just watching the moon get shadowed over.   It was fascinating, then too it went from orangish to RED at the moment of full umbra!   Impressive!   It was fun even for a 64 year ol git!   Did you get to see any?   Yeah it IS a gorgeous day here too now!
The ONE thing that surprised me was how small Luna looks exactly overhead, which is where the full eclipse showed here in the middle of the Texas panhandle.   I set the camera down in my chair and watched it, after I saw I could not get a nice pic of it.  Snif.

I might have or someone else might have. Yup, be thankful for the wobble or everyone would be crammed about 20° on either side of the Equator, kind of like in the Ice Age...when there were far less people in the world. Yikes!

Today doesn't know what it wants to do. We've got a front moving in and it's supposed to have 35-50 mph winds with blowing snow, mostly south and east of us.  It's hanging along the mountains mostly.

Yes. See the Space Weather thread. A few of us were watching it all at the same time. I know about looking up. Still have a crick in my neck. Lol.

I read recently the beginning of an article which shown to cook bones for dogs are very bad for their healths.

Well nothing changed here, but computer needs of rest :sigh: Will try to read and continuing with my music just enough to compensate his boum boum boum stupid thing - or my heart runs too fast which never happened before. Must be really  :dustbin: music.
Also for once at that hour (almost 1:30AM) cats have right to jump and run like they want between 2 rests in lap.

See you somewhere tomorrow!

One in the same. She has two dogs - a Pug and an Airdale...who suddenly has a 'kennel clip' and I'm guessing might have messed all over himself recently because this is a weird time of year to be getting your Airdale's hair chopped off. She's had several complaints about her dogs because she has no control over them when it comes to playing nice with the other dogs around here. She has them on leashes but they'll lunge at anyone and anything. Dropped her on the ground one day and then she blamed this other lady who was just walking by with her dog (which loves everyone). She didn't even get within 15 feet of her before this happened. I saw it all.

So, her solution to this apparently is NOT to take her dogs out for a walk to go potty. I feel pity for the woman that lives across the hall from her. She's complained about Thee Stank and has to spray Lysol in the hallway. It's nasty.

Remember Robert Duval in Apocolypse Now? "Ahhhhhhh, I love the smell of dog-s*** in the afternoon" is going to be my new greeting to the stinky days. I'm not shy about saying it either.

Good morning guys!
It was a night where I could sleep after 2:30AM. Then I woke up... at 3:23AM :thud: The a**hole was with his tv all suddenly  :sure: I don't know when he stopped, I blocked one ear against the pillow and blocked the other has hard as I could with my hand. Maybe he stopped, maybe I was able like that to fall in sleep even with his noise.
Yet before to go outside, I passed the vacuum cleaner  :ifonly: Ah he shouted that's sure, but when I went outside he didn't open his door to say thing before me.
Fortunately the morning was very good :smile:

Since the morning we are under falling snow. Forecast weather was right, that's an event :tearlaugh: And it's only now (1:34PM) that starts to stay on the ground. But good for Nature, good for air we breathe!

Maybe he's deaf from playing everything loud. I expect some people here where I live to be deaf and have their TV's or music loud...they're all old. A lot of them older than me. Goodness. At least he didn't feel the need to yell at you. There's a start.

Glad you had a good morning and got some sleep, Aelin :winks:

We had some now here last night, finally. I think it snowed for about an hour - just enough to make slush on the roads. They are to have blizzard conditions today out on the plains (to the East) with 50 mile per hour winds out there blowing the snow around. They say it is 22° here and feels like 7°. Brrrrrr.

Good Morning to all.   

Figured that was the same Lady Ray.....and yes, having unruly dogs around is not a good thing.  Had a couple of them at the Old Apts I lived in....Snappy little things....tiny but mean....and I'd bark back at them just to piss them off...and their owner....

At least you got a little sleep Aelin.......Sent you some articles for your Friend.....

I'm late because I was moving snow around to make room for more snow that we'll be getting.  I'll get yelled at by Lorna...but I try to show her how to shovel snow the right way..... and she thinks I'm talking just to hear myself talk.... 

Yes, it was nice that she shoveled, no, it's not nice that she doesn't listen about where to shovel the snow.

But anyway...I worked out my frustrations by shoveling....and now everything, even my baby toes, are worn out :tearlaugh: :tearlaugh:

Today we get 1-3", tonight 5-8", and tomorrow another 2-3"......so fun time is about to start....

But got my :java: and I'll be starting my tour....

Now you got me curious "J".....I use the Download Manager so I never see how many pages of stuff I have....but every item the I get is on my Products page....I'll let you know later today....See if I'll beat McG....LOL....

It's gone up one whole degree since I wrote what I did. 2-3 hours ago? Lol. Whoopee!

The one downstairs is apparently deaf as well. Turns up her tv. I can hear it in my bedroom at night but luckily it's not so loud I can't go to sleep. I really love it when she turns it up and opens her sliding glass door. It's like a double whammy of p*** me off. Most of the rest of the people in this building I really like. I'm just lucky...and so is poor lady downstairs across the hall. We have bonded over this :tearlaugh:

Picked up a brand new pair of Snow Boots at Kohls before the Season started.  Comfy and warm....

My old ones were 16 years old.....and I loved them....but they fell out of love with me, and started falling apart. 

If they continued to love me....they might have lasted longer...but alas...it wasn't in the cards....

Wow...that could be a great theme for a Soap Opera....  The Days of our Boots.....  or As the Boot Turns....

Hi Fafnir! We're pretty much okay here. The people out East on the plains don't have it too good with the blizzard conditions. One really doesn't want to be driving in a blizzard out there. It's impossible to see where the road is.  That stuff's headed into Kansas now.

I'm not making excuses or issues about the ramen noodles.  I used to have them twice a day and enjoyed them.  Now, one or two times a month.  Endo approved that, and a couple Coca Cola's a month, but about 1/3 to 1/2 a 20 oz bottle at a time.   The calories and salt are in his word, hideous.   The fast food joints are also treat items, per month, not day or week.   Pizza once or twice a year. 
Ketchup is good, got vinegar in it.  I cook in, not much carry out now.  McDonalds, Braums, KFC and Taco Bell.   Mostly history now.   When I had to start "Mealtime Insulin", that alone made the changes.  I was surprised at the contents of my cart at United last night.   Most of it was lean meats and veggies.   The carbs (breads) in the cart are a months supply.   Not a weeks.  Most of it is in the freezer now.   
There is no way for the glucose numbers to get lower with me eating like I used to.
The low sodium note in the lab results was a pleasant surprise.   I had a good reason to buy the Blue Diamond cookware.   To USE it.  :o)

The eat out places don't want me to be healthy.   They go broke with that.

Well, now that is interesting, might help facilitate the process, although I did notice that some items were part of a larger bundle. So far the previously purchased items in the bundle version out number the ones that are a "bonus" ... which means I would have to go back and check for those, but if the bulk can be done in a trice that is a bonus.

I have all of the items that I've ever put into the "cart", even the free ones in my downloads.  Only those that used to be ps_frNNN.exe didn't make it.  There may have been a few br_frNNN.exe that got missed as well.  I'd expect bonus items to show up, too, but will wait for your report on that.

Good luck!

Did you guys see that new planet they discovered just this morning?

Even Opera had to comment on it. Opera was quoted as saying 'Oh that's Big' after reading the evening post. It has been named TITS9.

Get it right, it is the software I am unhappy about and how everything is for the software only, more often then not

Their products for Poser I like, beside I have been doing, 3D art since 2003 well before the changes ....

Good morning guys!
Last night eyes were closing alone, I couldn't resist longer  :sure: But it was great to be able to sleep.

When I looked at the window this morning it was always the night. But in place of snow I found... nothing :panic: In fact we had rain during the night for what one told to me. I didn't hear it.
So for the moment forecast weather was right only half. No snow here today.

Yes J, they have always good stuff for Poser even now, but it's not always easy to find them in new products. I like also to chek when they have bundles for their Genesis figures. Because at least in one of bundles they like to say "Daz STudio" for usage, but they forget to add they have architecture working in Poser too.

Digital Art Zone, aka (Daz) has always been excellent in providing quality models. That is what they began doing in the first place, it is only when they ventured into software development did a problem arise.

Daz is in short, the 'Donald Trump' of the CGI world. They boast, brag, and are down right cut-throats. Rather than earn their position in the industry, they force their way in by any means necessary. (Throw Grandma AND Grampy under the bus without hesitation!)

But hey, after all...that's the American way!

I don't use it either, but I have seen it from the source code side. They are getting a little better, not as much 'copy n paste' code as in the beginning. But don't be so hard on the people who do use it, my friend...it's not their fault, they make the best of the tools they have.

When Daz first introduced the 'genesis' characters, I couldn't help but to laugh. Knowing how arrogant they are, I knew they would come up with some form of outlandish claims but I didn't see that one beforehand.

Genesis? Really? They have not, nor ever will be the beginning of ANY technology in the CGI world! False claims by an arrogant step-child that is as clueless as a monkey in a mine field!

We just want you to stay healthy......  I get lectured at every doctors visit and I love it.  Means they care....not that I do anything wrong mind you...... :java:


Some of the things I asked the Endo if they were bad, he said were GOOD.   He then got out this thick 3 ring notebook and showed me pics of the products.  Splenda or Sucralose being the first.   Then my particular coffee.   GOOD!   Gave me goosebumps it did!
Basically, anything non-caloric is usable and won't affect A1C/glucose. 
But BREAD?   Mission Fluffy Flour Tortillas, 22 count, *EHHHHH!* (that's the BAD Buzzer folks).   
I read that info on the Ramen noodles too.   The guy swallows a camera to show what the noodles look like hours later.  So its a good thing I always use other stuff like veggies and/or pasta sauce in them.  And only ONE pack.   I use to buy that one flavor, Lime Shrimp, two cases at a time.   Every two weeks.  Now 1 case lasts like 3 or 4 months at the worst.   Again, the Glucometer before every meal tells the tale.  Every time.   That works on ya, when you know what the number should be, and see it 3 times higher.   Now, like this morning, 25 points higher, and eat what I want with minimal insulin. BUT, don't eat as MUCH as I want.   
It enforces portion size.   :sure:

Two Endo visits ago, I must have asked him exactly the wrong question.  The kind that tells him I'm in Egypt on a river that day.  Cause he did a quick double take, smiled real big, and said that he enjoyed working with someone like me, someone that cares about getting control of their diabetes and being healthy.    Spent a while connecting what I'd said to what he responded with.   Then the little dim light comes on, and Ohhh DUH.   Next visit, A1C was probably a little higher.   
He said nothing except "See you in four months!". 
OK.    Insulin cannot do it all.    :shrug: If I cannot burn the calories off, then I very simply have to stop inputting all those calories.

 Period.   :OMFG:

 :shock: My COFFEE is ok.   That's good, cause I ain't giving that up.   :smile:

Well, we had the pleasant privilege of waking up to rain, granted it is the last of my four day weekends "to use it or lose it" so not really caring about the weather to much .. one: it has stopped since then and two: we only have slightly cloudy skies now.

Calling that part a win.

On the minus side have had three phone calls from work because ... well ... never mind.

I believe the original is from there, or at least that's what the Google image search seems to imply.  I think I ran across it on the DAZ forums, maybe by Disciple, quite a few years ago.

Good Morning to all....

Right now our temp is -13 degrees  ..... with the wind it feels like -24 degrees....

Our high will be 2 degrees...with snow showers

Will most likely go out once today...just to get the vehicle warmed up for a bit.

And these are the warm temps LOLOL..... Next week they are calling for our regular temp to be -19 degrees on Wednesday....

Other then that....got a computer room to clean and get back to normal.....

Your Vampires must be good Fafnir....In and out in a flash LOL....

That is some temp change Sir Knight....and yup....I hate those quick temp changes also....plays hell with the body....

Morning Mc-G.......

And Aelin.....Yes indeed....All Cats seem to have that skill....Oz is no exception.....and when you go from snow to rain....I always hope it doesn't go back to snow...because that means ICE.....:thud:

But glad I did all that shoveling when I did.... Wouldn't want to be out there now....

All this talk about cold is giving me the shivers.....time for more :java: and a tour of our humble home

If you hadn't shoveled, could you go outside? After a moment a wall of snow is a danger. But definitively as soon as possible try to take a machine to 'work' the snow. Always good exercice by walking, but less fatigue for you - and your body will say thank you.

Good morning to all.......

Tis 11° here and feels like -5° with the 14 mph wind-chill.  The next couple of days is supposed to be warm-ish and then more snow. Yea, the up and down thing with the temps is hard on the body and the arthritis.

Pretty sure I won't be around much today. Have fun!

wasn't to hot but had a good bite  especially after 2 or 3 days in the  fridge  beans were served on the side  usually  pinto beans  the meat used was usually  brisket  cause back in those days not many people  wanted to eat brisket  not like today  where it is at a premium  we used to enjoy smoked brisket at least once a month  slow smoked all night long put it on round 6 in the evening over oak and pecan wood fire  with  more coals under the wood [fire was kept at 220]  green pecan wood  added as needed by 6 next  morning  was  juicy and tender with pretty  smoke  ring  in it and  nice bark outside  most yummie

Good Morning to all.....

Tis a brisk 18 below zero right now .......and hard to believe...they are predicting snow for today....Why would snow want to come out when it's this cold outside?

Anyway....Lorna and I did make our dinner trip last night....after driving around for about a 1/2 hour to make sure the vehicle was properly warmed.  I'm not much of a fast food guy but I was not in the mood to cook so we ended up at Burger King (I've only been there 3 times in the past 5 years) and got some fish sandwiches for take out.   And actually....they were pretty damn good....and I loved their fries.  I always heard their fries sucked which is why I never oredered them those other two times I went there.  Anyway....Like I said...we both enjoyed the meal...and the vehicle got warmed up....

And I'm not going out in this stuff till late in the day....got to go over and get Phils shopping list so I can pick up a few things for him....and Ollie the wonderdog....

And now to see what else is what in here....and busy with todays winner picks.

But first....a :java: to warm the soul........ahhhhhhhh

and yes it gets worse can you believe some idiot company actually has it listed it for over $300 ... seriously .... :whatthe:

I see that Amazon has it for $38.00 which is rubbish in my mind. There is only one disc and a limited number of special features ... so the only reason for the price imbalance is that it is no longer being manufactured I suppose .... :sigh:

Ray, Tom was my first Doctor also.  But favorite?  They all are.   Tom had the longest tenure AS the Doctor so far, and I really liked him.  When I started watching regularly, Leela was his companion.   It was toward the end of 2016 that I pieced together there was just the ONE Doctor, and it was always the same person, with generally the same memory but varying personality with each incarnation, or something along those lines.  By seeing it with that fairly simple premise it was easy to accept new Doctor actors along the way.  Which I didn't really want to at first.   Truth is, I think now, they have all be great in their time and good fun with all the Companions.  I can't watch it as a series, as it isn't really shown on BBCA as one continuous series.  OR perhaps I just don't tune in the right day and time for the series.  I just rewatch all the reruns.  But that's fun too!

Oh I found something new to do with my favorite flavor of Ramen Noodles.   Open package, take out season packet, store or toss out the leftover noodle block.  Get down a 2 cup mug, put in the Lime Shrimp season, fill with hot water and sip.  Great for flu, cold, sore throat and general enjoyment!   I also found that adding a nice sprinkle of Lemon Pepper spice is great.   
Now I know y'all have had major issues with "Ramen Noodles", and I did follow and read the link you last posted TL, watched the Doctors video too of what happens real time in the stomach with the noodles.  Gee, he don't break his noodles up!  All I saw was big gooey clumps of wormy looking mass of stuff.   
*I* break mine up so I can use a spoon to eat them!   But that is now WHEN I eat them.  The Lime Shrimp Broth is excellent first thing, beside by COFFEE and water.   Broth yes, noodles no.   Yes?

That is why I have every episode of Dr. Who ever aired, all 303 of them, and have them in sequence so I can do exactly that, this is not counting the latest Doctor's first season.

But the noodles are the worst part right?   For the last couple years, the lab reports my sodium as Low.   Doc says the reason is I have to drink a lot of water/fluids to get the output color right.  If I don't, with the load my kidneys are dealing with, I end up with inflammation quick.   No bladder + the meds seem to cause that.  Anyway, since the op, sodium tends to be Low.   So, I'll enjoy a hot cuppa broth now and then.  With coffee, and glass of water.  Coca-Cola... they still make those?  :)

You have to heat it up when you're ready to eat it, TL. :tearlaugh:  Hope it's not snowing again.

Sometimes I get started on something and forget the food is in the microwave and have to reheat it.  So this way if we go out and get it late...and I've got all done that needed doneing .....I will only have to reheat it once....LOL

Snowed last night...but nothing now...but later it will start up.   But thankfully the 8-12"  is now down to a manageable 5-8 but with BITTER COLD.....

You can have anything you want to eat....but some things that your warned about......you need to limit yourself on. 

Believe me....I love Coffee Ice Cream....and I was a champ at putting it away.....but then was warned I gotta limit my intake....so I did....It was hard....but now I call it a special treat and make a Coffee Milkshake about 4-5 times a year....instead of every other day. 

I feel better, my Doctors feel better.....and the hugs I get from both of them feel GREAT.....  :viking:

There are more things in the Oriental foods aisle than ramen noodles - like real Udon, Soba and Rice noodles. Organic flavorings, etc. If you make it yourself, you know what's in it or not in it.

I get a pint of ice cream about once every couple of months and eat a couple of tblspns of ice cream every other day or so. Sometimes not for a week. It's like a surprise in the freezer I forget about, largely. But when I want a bite there it is.

Having two Asian grocery stores within ten miles of my place is a god send for exactly that reason. We get variety and a much wider assortment of noodles to use. We do raid those items on a regular basis. Bottom of my fridge is loaded with all sort of Udon, Soba and yakisoba noodles.

As to seasonings ... well, I have variations that I have yet to use in my cooking. I know what they are and what sort of "zing" they would add just haven't got around to using all of them at the moment.

Presumably your room isn't too hot or you aren't wearing too many bed-clothes/blankets to get hot, and your meds aren't causing it.

Hopefully it's just one of those strange things that happens now and then and nothing more.

And not your thyroid.

That totally bites. At least I'm stable Rx-wise on that.
When my thyroid was hyper-bonzo I'd get soooooo hot, I could go outside in -10° weather (and did so) in shorts, flip-flops and a tank top and I was still HOT. It was miserable. All that heat is coming from inside, not outside.

It did save me from getting the flu that year that everyone else around me had. Internal heat just burned it all away, I think. I was eating like the proverbial horse and losing weight because my metabolism was so high.

My latest fun is that the kitten Smoky (approx. four months now) has figured out how to get on the desk and has decided apparently that keyboards are fun. Had a perfectly good scene working in Poser and woke up to it to find it gone.


Apparently the last two nights he somehow put it in sleep mode and managed to somehow get the other one signed out. Which once signed back in found out that there was no less then four windows opened in File Explorer :whatthe:

Following Luffies suggestion to turn both wireless keyboards off this evening.

GAAAHHRRR!   :wolvie:   
OH and I'd immediately inspect Tattoo's front paws and make sure he didn't just develop opposed thumbs.   :OMFG:

Good morning guys!
Today France is under Gabriel storm. Storm with wind of course, but also snow. But, how to tell that?  ;perplexed: It seems here it's a storm with no wind, and with few rain :shrug:  :tearlaugh:  And yet we are in warning :tearlaugh:

Good morning to all :sunny:

Maybe that weather will show up on a different day. Keep an eye to the sky, Aelin (I know you do :winks: ). It's the best weather report. Stay warm.

:woohoo: I get to go to the store today!

was over to rosity a while ago  Rhiannon has a base figure for La Femme that is free  but if you put it in your cart and go to check out you can't get the figure unless you spend at least 3.50 at rosity   I be thinking this is a crock of crap making you buy something that you don't  want or need

:whatthe: I'll look that by myself and try to find what happens... if the site is able to go faster. Tonight Renderosity is very slow for me. And it's not the storm which does that like I can go elsewhere without problem.
Becaus yes, we are officially under the wind of the storm at night - when forecast weather said afternoon for our part of country :shrug: Always no snow, just rain. But it's not bad at all.

OK finally I won't be able to take her. Only because I haven't payement informations to gige to them.
I tried to pass by another way with a gift certification which has few cents. They don't accept of course.


And after that issue I see also the $3.5 that you said Fafnir. You're right, that's a joke.

Hi, Fafnir.   It was a great day.  I now have 12 more operational GPUs than I had at the start of the day.  The snow threatened for the morning didn't arrive.  Perhaps we'll be able to dodge the one tonight.
I hope that you and yours are also doing well. 

And, my perennial question: what did you have for dinner?   :Hi5:

Yes, indeed.  I would really like to get my hands on The Fafnir Guide to Good Food.

I did most of the cooking for the first 15 years we were married.  She has in the last five years done most of it.  We shared some of the in-between years.   She prefers to listen to material on various subjects while she's cooking.  My days of multiprogramming using sharp items, carrying on discussions and listening to study materials are behind me.  :shrug:

Ah, so you have taken turns in the kitchen. Pretty much my daughter, my best friend and yes, myself are those who want the kitchen all to themselves. I think that's because of today's apartment kitchens - which are rather 'cozy'. I once had a wonderful giant kitchen and I wasn't like that then.

Yeah, we need a "Fafnir's Down-home Cookin'" cookbook :winks:

That's the trouble with HOT. You can put on layers and layers in the Winter and stay warm, but there's no real way to take off enough to ever cool down some days.

Hi Dreamer!   Hang in there gal, it will get better soon.   It always does.   You're reminding me of what it was like down in the Bayou Country (all of south east Texas).  We thought of it as The Soup Bowl, and summer was when that bowl was on the burner.  Hot, humid, still air, sweat buckets, evaporation just wasn't happening.  It all just puddled on and around you.  I really think Air Conditioners were invented for that ailment!  We got folks in Florida used to the same stuff.  I'm sure they agree, AC is a must!  But sprawling out with a wet cloth does help a little bit.   I get goose bumps remembering that feeling.  Not so sure it's a pleasant one though. 
Cheers to ya!   :viking:

I wasn't awake long when I typed that last post.  [now erased]  If I may, let me clarify myself?
I've known for some time how the Rendo cart minimum works, and it isn't really a big deal as I just picked out a few items in my wishlist and popped them in the cart a day early.  So, $17 + change and half a gigabyte of downloaded files later, I have the goodies in my  downloads folder.
 
LaFemme doesn't have to stand up next to any other Figure I have.  If I like using it, I will.   Simple stuff seems to work best, right?   

It also seems to work better if I think a moment before hitting [POST].

I don't knock either Rendo or DAZ store/cart setups.  They're a little different, but we all been using them for AGES now, and they WORK.  Both work pretty darn well, in fact.   No problemo.   Not even a raised eyebrow over the $3.50 thing, honest!  As Jenn Blake at Renderosity mentions, it's always been that way.   Seems  that means longer than the 15 years I've been a User there!  Just that vendors normally put their freebies in Freebies.   But not if the item isn't a permanently Free item, therefore, they just use the cart.  Less trouble for them.  Though that doesn't seem to happen every day, right?

The items I bought were all 50% off or more, and La Femme was $0 as stated.  Voila!  Done!  Yaaay!



Hey I just realized that the word I used my whole life, "wallah!" is really pronounced that way, but spelled voila!  Cool trivia from movie READY PLAYER ONE!   :explode: :crazysmile: :Hi5:    :yippee: :smile: :winks:

And now to install and load up the new Goodies!   :ifonly:

COLD there!   I am glad we aren't due weather THAT cold at all this year.   Maybe -2F, but not -24.   Either way, below 0 hurts to the bones.   :sno2:

Woolworths awarded me my very first credit card!   Bought my own first set of tires and rims for my very first car with that very first CC on my first inport on my first duty station.  Too many firsts!  But, the CC was fun, though it was always right at the top of my mind that this is debt, and I mentally watched my next paycheck dwindle a little bit every time I used it.   That was effective.  I paid me debts.  I miss Woolworths/Woolco.  They were a great chain and department store.   Generally, their stuff was similar to Sears, which I also liked.
JC Penny was also a good clothing store, which Mom took us to on financially good years.  On other years we went to our little in-town store, Wayside Dept. Store, mostly clothes though.  Owned and operated by a local family, they extended credit to locals.  Most towns have something like this I think.  Cost more though.

Cool calendar!   I also like your Gear Cult Clock, that is cool too!    I hesitate to say Steampunk as Gears seem to have become embedded in several 'cults' so Gear Cult seems reasonable to me.  Heh!   Betty Boop.   I recall her in a grass skirt and no top in an old Popeye cartoon at intermission at the cinema when I was little.   Been a LONG time.  And she's been a favorite to millions all through the years.   Way cool, I am so glad your Mom and siblings are so thoughtful!

Well my friend..... like I said last night......In this cold you have to at least go out once in this stuff to keep all the oils and other fluids from stiffening up....and the battery needs to be added to the mix....  So I went riding for about a 1/2 hour.....and picked up some hamburger for a Meatloaf his weekend.  Walmart was damn near deserted.

No Postal Service.  Lorna's plant and the company I worked for were shut down, Piggly Wiggly was shut down...the only fast food place going was McD.  Culvers, Burger King, Dairy Queen, Subway, and Pizza Hut were closed....

Our local store in Newport was called Benny's.  He sold everything from Clothes to Furniture....   

Our other great store was Charlies 5-10 Cent Store.  Not much was 5-10 cents.....but most stuff was priced lower then the rest of the shops....Plus it sold COMICS......which is why my Grandfather and I called it a Favorite ....

We're in the 40s today and for the rest of the week in the high 50s and low 60s, Fafnir. On shopping day it starts getting cold again. Of course. Lol.

I realized last night after mentioning my old nice kitchen, it was about as large as my living room now is. :tearlaugh: My kitchen now is just one of those 'pullman kitchens'. Crowded with one person in it, but manageable.

Oh so there is still a Piggly Wiggly open!   I think they are gone here in Texas, like KMart.  I shopped a KMart in Albuquerque in recent years though.   I always liked KMart.   Wish they hadn't shut all those down and left just Walmart.  I also liked GemCo.  Woolco.  Sigh.  Nothing is permanent, except change.

Gears?  I suppose you have all the Clocks, Gear and Cog sets from both DAZ and Rendo eh?  Need any links?  ;o)  DM has some great ones.  Remember the start up and fizzle out of the Oil Cult?

Pullman?  Like the Pullman car?  Caboose?  With a tiny kitchenette, small but excellent 4 burner gas stove!  I like my sis's Kenmore gas stove/oven.  Very easy to use.   Plus, counter space both sides the stove, fridge on facing wall.   I got used to the corner double sink.  Kinda like it now.  I hadn't heard that term though in many years Ray.

I guess every town has its own name on the main street Five & Dime stores.  We had J.C. Wackers, and I worked 2 years there in high school days.  My Mom worked there as a high schooler too.  I thought it was kinda weird and awesome when my eldest worked a winter there too.  It sure got a lot of jokes on the name. And still served the community well for 75 years.  And like your Dime store, most prices were lower for most things.  And it was the first place everyone looked to for seasonal goodies.  Specially Halloween and Christmas.

It's actually an architectural term describing long narrow kitchens. Most commonly they are used in apartments.

They're long and narrow, often two stories tall sitting on a 25' wide lot. You can look in your neighbor's bathroom window on the second floor quite often and there's only like a 3' sidewalk between the houses.

Yup, like that.

Regarding the shotgun houses, that's how they are here - many of them in the old downtown area of Denver itself. If they haven't been torn down and rebuilt on already. The city blocks down there are 300' wide and 600' long and divided the long way in 25' lots originally, the long way. I've seen the old maps.

Right, I remember apartment kitchens, which really lacked for storage space overall.  But weren't that bad for working space.  Small working space. 
Gotcha on the Pullman Car (sleeper).   Completely forgot about that.   Definitely not the caboose.  Lots of shotgun houses down in Galveston on Broadway.  A few seem to get destroyed with every big storm the last century.   But the community there is proud of their old houses, and really fix em up after every storm.
But they are so darn narrow!

Ours are actually built on 'basement' foundation walls. It's more like a root cellar or canning storage place - often with creepy-crawlies of some sort or another - that is to say black widows and silverfish. That's why they're often two story ones here. We have bedrock or at least a good solid clay layer down several feet. 


You should see the old Victorian houses up in like Central City or Blackhawk (gambling towns). 'Summer' homes in the mountains. They look like gingerbread doll houses. The front door entry is probably 5' 6" tops and 2 1/2' wide. Them people were itty-bitty!

'Gingerbread' is a style of architecture associated with Victorian architecture - where there's lots of cut-out wood molding on the eaves and around some part of some windows. It's fancy stone-work in the city. Don't ask me why they built houses out of wood and not cut stone up there.

Good luck on the waiting Ray!    LOL!   
I've seen Gingerbread houses on This Old House, and even have some pics in the magazines I got with a 2 yr sub.  I wanted the paper magazine to read, and enjoy the pics in it too.   They have shown some amazing houses through the years!
Never been to Denver, sadly.   Those houses in Galveston, even those shotgun houses, are all on piered columns and are 5' minimum off the ground.  That came about after the 1900 Storm that killed thousands, with a storm surge that silently rose and flooded peoples homes, most in their sleep.  A little later the winds and rain hit.   It was the first recorded hurricane, and the cause of the Weather Bureau being formed.  It changed Galveston forever.   Every building that was standing and kept was raised.   The shotgun houses were often 2 1/2 stories, top being a dormer, and up to 90 feet long.   But only 20 feet wide.  Cute but weird!
There are also a lot of mansions on the islands there.  Some called Pirates Palaces.  One has a stone foundation some 8' high, and is a sprawling wood frame castle with double sweeping stair steps for the front entry.  Makes me think of Cinderella or some other Fairy tale!   I'll try to find a pic of it later.  Gotta crash now.  Swelling must go down in legs....

Woohoo there ARE morphs already in the store for La Femme 1!  Got em in the cart, waiting for some $$ now!   Deecey and Blackhearted both got morph packs in the store.  Both sets look like they will work good together.  :)

Not a problem when I was younger the old man used to bring rolled coins home and us kids would go through them and we built out coin collections of all denominations, years and mint marks from them and rolled them back up when done.

Got a lot of practice rolling coins and just remember this off the top of my head.

Thanks for the info, Fafnir.  I see I didn't simply say all that 'first' stuff was just about Galveston Island.   I pray we never see those kinds of loss of life again, anywhere because of anything.  But, I didn't roll off the turnip truck this morning.  I think we will see disasters and tragedy throughout our lives.    Hurricanes damage even reach up here.   Can't hide from Mother Nature.

Yes, no, maybe. All turnip trucks aside, the Weather Bureau  of the United States (now "The National Weather Service" or NWS) was established in 1870 by a joint act of Congress under President Ulysses S. Grant.

It may be that the "Great Galveston Hurricane" caused the Galveston-Houston weather station and emergency preparedness center to be established and the first hurricane recorded in their books there but it's not 'why the NWS was opened.

That hurricane affected people in Ohio and clear up into Canada - it's on Canadian books as well. No doubt it was a monster, devastating storm.

There was a worse one in 1780.

There are entire cities under water off the coast of southern India and perhaps off of Japan there with Yonaguni. Out in the Ocean.... that we don't even remember or know existed.

We'll see plenty more and hope to hell the Emergency Funds for FEMA, etc. haven't been confiscated.

Let's not kick the dead horse any more.

I have since had some, as well as my friends having some, and it's wonderful. It's always lovely cake!

Best cake in a box there is! You don't even have to frost it, because it has tiny Ghirardelli chocolate chips in it that melt into the batter as it's baking.

with whatever spices you add to the garlic butter


Those come in boxes too, in with the cake mixes, etc. I did add maybe a 1/2 a tsp of Chesapeake Bay Spice to the flour and cheese mix to give it a little more of that flavor. Melt a 1/4 c butter and put the garlic spices in, then spoon it (about a soup-spoon full) over the biscuits when you're ready to eat them.

The hardest part is getting the dough off your (clean) fingers and utensils after putting it down on the cookie sheet to bake. Very sticky stuff!

I need to get a spoon/scoop of the appropriate size. What I have is either too small (tbsp) or too large (stewing-stirring spoon)

Lol...I hadn't made 'from scratch' biscuits or even dumplings for awhile and forgot how gooey it is. By the time you've spooned up some and tried to get it to come off the spoon onto the baking sheet IT'S TOO LATE NOW HONEY!

And of course, your nose starts itching :yes:

I don't remember which browser you use, TL, but Firefox has some quite good plugins for finding and removing dead bookmarks. 

My brain drives me crazy (crazier?).  All I can think of now is the Dead Bookmark Society.

Thanks for the heads up Sir Knight.  I have FF installed and use it every now and then just to keep it up to date.  When it had problems...I put it in the back of the Browser files until the next fix came out. 

Will have to fire it up and see what is what in the bookmark section....

Thanks Again.  Anything I can find to save time is a good thing LOLOL....

Your welcome Dear Rayvn  I been there  done the  nose  itching thing and it seems like every time your mixing dough it happens  I got a measuring spoon that is just right for biscuits  came from Hawai'i made of Koa wood holds about a tbls and a half has a well oiled finish that things don't stick to it  :havesum:

Yeah, it does happen every time - SOMEthing itches doesn't it? Then you look at your fingers, try to wiggle your nose 'meaningfully' and bite the bullet for the next while. Makes you get things done quicker. Lol.

I'll have to see what I can find at the grocery store for a 'biscuit spoon' since I won't be going to Hawaii any time soon :winks:

got cloud cover this  morning cant see  moon and planets  mayhap tomorrow will be  better  hope so

The Moon is no longer in conjunction with Venus and Jupiter, as it comes up later every time it comes up. Now it won't come up until after you can't see the two planets because of the Sun.

Any time a conjunction involves the Moon, you have to see it right that night/dawn/twilight because it moves faster and at a different rate than the planets in our sky. The planets will stay aligned a little longer.

Feel like I've been pulled through a knothole sideways several times, just for good measure. Been sleeping since about 2 pm yesterday off and on - mostly 'on', until about 7 am this morning. Felt like every bone in my body was broken yesterday. Fever, chills and stuffy. And yes, drinking green tea, taking vitamin C and others. If the fever and chills leaves sometime today, I'll be happy - but not counting on 'getting over it' for at least another few days.

Thanks all :hartz:

Lorna wants the Rams to win though she likes the Patriots....but she feels they've won it enough....

But as I tell her....they've played in all those Super Bowls because they earned it....

I like football but not as enthused about it as Lorna is.  She could watch it 24/7......

Forgive me if my poor, tired, dysfunctional remaining brain cells (all 6 of them) are missing something, but I've looked all over the site, and haven't stumbled onto the answer yet.


Regarding the TOTW and SAOTW contests.... The only thing I've managed to unearth is:


"SAOTW  and  TOTW These images are chosen at random from the many that are uploaded to the gallery for that week then when selected are announced."


I'm assuming (yes, I know what happens when you assume...) that means any gallery, and not a specific gallery. Just wondering as I don't remember ever placing in either one. Since my memory seems to be limited to the last 15 minutes or so these days, I could be wrong about that. I remember winning a few in the old "Your Art" contest which has been replaced by the 'Toon It' contest.

Um, no. It was in the high 50s here today - delightful!

My reference was more about being born into this world and growing old and falling apart, or having to deal with things that make no sense or frustrate one - Misery. So just laugh and "party like it's 1999" - to the best of one's ability. Make the best of it.

Was dealing with a possessed site on a possessed pc, loosing my mind. Just a normal day :smile:

Definitely loaded with the mellower flavors from the 60's and 70's Rock scene.   Bluegrass-Rock?  Great tune and love the sunset/rise backdrop!
OK, yeah I get the realizing it's fall apart time and change outlook to AWWW JUST GO FER ENJOYING IT!   Sorry so late replying, been tending to Mogwai who lost an apparently upper left canine tooth and is feeling all out of sorts himself.  Almost 7 now he is!  Got a Doc appt Tuesday too.  Me?  Got up noonish or later today, had all meds on time and not feeling like eating yet.   Aches, creaks and groans all over today.  But, hey, I WOKE UP!  LOL!  great thing that!

Yes any gallery, except those from COTM or contests, or Red Door, or Toon It. Uh, TL and J can fulfill the blank because I'm not sure I have all of them :whatthe:
But you can put a picture in "attic medley", "2d", "backgrounds", "warriors"... and it can be choosen.

Basically Toon It is like was Your Art: you can post a picture now and it can be choosen between the next weekend and the last weekend of the year.

Here's the reason I'm asking.... When I look at Lamuserie's lovely Dark Fairy, the path to the image (above it) shows:

No, when there is a new winner, the image is moved from its previous place. I think it's for one week, but I can be wrong. Nobody post there, it's J or TL who moves pictures.

At the base, the choice is from Saturday to Friday midnight (must be East Coast). It's during that time you can be choosen. Then each Saturday J and TL look every image posted during those days, which are in the eligible parts of gallery, and they make their choices.

Definitely loaded with the mellower flavors from the 60's and 70's Rock scene.   Bluegrass-Rock?  Great tune and love the sunset/rise backdrop!
OK, yeah I get the realizing it's fall apart time and change outlook to AWWW JUST GO FER ENJOYING IT!   Sorry so late replying, been tending to Mogwai who lost an apparently upper left canine tooth and is feeling all out of sorts himself.  Almost 7 now he is!  Got a Doc appt Tuesday too.  Me?  Got up noonish or later today, had all meds on time and not feeling like eating yet.   Aches, creaks and groans all over today.  But, hey, I WOKE UP!  LOL!  great thing that! 

Good Morning This Afternoon Folks!    :shj: :thumb_up: :shock: :yippee: :java:


Daniel Ash, David J and David Haskins are "Love and Rockets" from mid-late 80's to about '90. In the early 80's Ash and Haskins were called "Tones on Tail". Both groups considered "Alternative".

In the late 70's to early 80's they had a little group with a man known as Peter Murphy called "Bauhaus" who were like the godfathers of Goth Rock, probably best known for the song "Bela Lugosi's Dead".

Sorry, there's no bluegrass in there :tearlaugh:

Yeah, just laugh...what is there to do?

Poor kitty and tooth. My kitty still has all her teeth and she's almost 14. I've not ever fed her wet food. Just saying. But it's too late once begun .

PS....That was a great movie....Robin Williams was always so awesome in whatever he did....

He sure was.  So sad he died like that.   Brilliant mind, great comedian and seemed to be just a great guy.   I've looked forward to every thing he did since Mork & Mindy.  He made that show great.  And who doesn't love HOOK?!  He was fun, and likeable, yep.  Miss that guy.

Oh, sorry there Sir Knight. I shouldn't like to cause you rust!

I'm in some weird in-between state where I do feel better than Death Warmed Over which is how I felt yesterday. Or a flaming bag of kitty poop on someone's doorstep - that HAD been stomped out.

I haven't had chills today and maybe little 'shots' of being hot but not like I was. Probably from doing things like dishes because nobody else is going to do them. Lol. So all in all, yes considerably better but still not my usual 80%.

Yup, DISH has a channel that seems to air all those kinds of shows.  The what really happened to em kind.  The stuff about Michael Jackson was surprising too, and yeah I think the guy was on the way to being locked up as well as being robbed blind.  Prince had been behind the scenes in music since he was a kid himself.   I miss that guy too.  I am glad we do still have some great musical talent still around and still active.   

Dolly Parton anyone?  I didn't realize it till that first "A Day In The Life Of Country" aired maybe 20 years ago, and was treated to her and three other women sitting together and just start singing an old Gospel Hymn, and their harmonies made me cry.  And Dolly, her voice singing soft and low, can be magnificent.  I did not expect her to sound that good, honest.   She has a voice for sure, not just carrying a tune!

I said I slept for 17 hours from yesterday to this morning. There is only so much sleep one can sleep and only so many YT videos one can watch. And I'm onery and do whatever I like (within pc limits) anyway!

 :nanana:



Hey, Ray, (and the rest of y'all as well) if you want to watch a really good YT video (I know you're not into DS, but there's a couple parts in here that are particularly excellent...), check this one out:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8QjUl-baX4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8QjUl-baX4)


If you don't want to watch the whole thing (it's an hour & a half), just watch the first 7 - 8 minutes or so, then skip ahead to about the 27 minute mark (where his computer freezes up, and he goes to a particularly awesome website in the meantime), and check it out.

Yep, the Superbowl started on CBS 10 mins before you posted your message!   New England won, again.  I watched it, was rooting for the LA Rams.  They blew two touchdown passes (don't ask how, its the Superbowl!) or rather the Patriots stomped on their TD attempts flat out.

Yeah, I've been using Poser since version 8 - which is what I started the TNA series with. I'm using PP-2014 ATM. I may give PP-11 a try again on the Origin laptop - just so I can have a play with LaFemme.. I don't plan on abandoning Poser - it's my go-to for the story, and lots of other stuff, too.


DAZ is just another tool in the ol' toolbox, along with Vue, Photoshop, and a few other goodies. It's all good. Well, except for the fact I'm pretty much stuck with Vue 10 Complete.. I was thinking about upgrading, but E-On has gone to a subscription-only format, and the 'Creator' level is $25.00 a month! WTF?? That's more than my Adobe and MS Office subs combined!

My main tools now are...Poser 11, ZBrush, Blender, & Adobe Photoshop CS6. ZBrush was a breath of fresh air after MudBox. But, I do NOT expect mastering any of them in my lifetime!

I never did care much for Project Dog Waffle, even back when it was always free. I created my own in-house software for creating & painting terrain maps, though I can do all of it in ZBrush, I still update and use it from time to time.

Like most in here....I don't watch the Pro Games....nor the Superbowl.  I kept track of the score via phone alerts and Lorna....just so I can chat with Mom about the game.  And yes...she Loves watching the Patriots play....but that's the only pro team she'll watch.   

I like college football.  Always have.  Been to many Badger Games.

Anyway....Lorna pouted all morning about the Rams loss and went to work with that attitude...which will not make for a good day....

Enough of the football.   

Cool "WAKE UP" Vid Ray.....

Someone has a warped sense of humor.
On the software front I started with Poser 7, couldn't make heads or tails out of it so picked up DS2 and very quickly got to the point where it couldn't do what I wanted so moved to DS3-DS3A and ended up binning it as it stated crashing my computer, moved back to Poser 7 and found I could now make it work. Have used some version of ever since but am starting to think about moving back to DS

Starting the day with some Doobies.... Doesn't get much better than that...


My wife recently ordered one of those CD collections from Time-Life - 'Soft Rock' collection.. Soooooo wonderful. I spent 3 days listening to those then ripping them to a hard drive so I can listen to them while I fiddle with 3D.


I miss those days and the music.. So much better than 98% of the absolute crap (especially that rap / hip-hop S##T) that passes as music the last couple decades.  :sure:


I've been considering getting Zbrush for some time. I might actually do it one of these days. What I really need to do is get off my arse, and delve into Blender - it's considerably cheaper...  :thissmall:

Time Life has some awesome Collections.  I have "Malt Shop Memories" and their Christmas Collection....and the Music of Life Collection........

And like you....all are on a external so I can move from puter to puter and listen to them....

A while back I was almost tempted to buy one of their TV Series Collections.  I LOVED "China Beach" and they had all 62 episodes on DVD's.   Might go in and take a peek and see if they still have that collection...I think they also had Carol Burnett, Robin Williams, Jack Benny and some others....

Was reading some of the comments below the video for Black Water and people were talking about singing it in their cars or singing the parts to the end there with their friends, and how much they loved it and it was one of their favorite songs. I was like "Yeah...those were the days." I'd definitely say we all grew up in the best time ever for "popular music".

Time Life has some awesome Collections.  I have "Malt Shop Memories" and their Christmas Collection....and the Music of Life Collection........

And like you....all are on a external so I can move from puter to puter and listen to them....

A while back I was almost tempted to buy one of their TV Series Collections.  I LOVED "China Beach" and they had all 62 episodes on DVD's.   Might go in and take a peek and see if they still have that collection...I think they also had Carol Burnett, Robin Williams, Jack Benny and some others....




Yep - we have that 'Music of Your Life' collection, too.. Wonderful stuff..  :java:

Was reading some of the comments below the video for Black Water and people were talking about singing it in their cars or singing the parts to the end there with their friends, and how much they loved it and it was one of their favorite songs. I was like "Yeah...those were the days." I'd definitely say we all grew up in the best time ever for "popular music". Even most of the stuff from the 80s and 90s is far superior to what their is these days. Some of us saw it born!! Bless Bill Haley and the Comets, The Diamonds, etc.

A-Freaking-men, Ray! Lyrics that actually meant something, actual melodies, and the artists actually had talent. Pretty much everything you hear today seems like it all came out of the same garbage can. How much talent does it take to create....uh..... I mean copy..... something like: BOOM! BOOM! BOOOOMBOOM! Expletive..BOOM! BOOM! BOOOOMBOOM! Expletive.... and repeat it for 4 minutes? And crank it up to the point you rattle the pictures on people's walls... From two blocks away. Idiots.

Yeah, the words to that song covered a whole lot of territory, didn't they Rod? Remember who 'The Joker' was? 

Even the stupid songs like "Alley Oop" were at least fun to sing - again with the harmonies and parts. "He's the King of the Jungle Jive - lookit that caveman go! He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs offa trees, Alley Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop. Knockin' great big monsters dead on their knees, Alley Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop.

"Boogie, I/you/we can boogie all night long." (I/you/we in different "verses".) I swear that's all the lyrics. If there are any more I don't remember them.

Thankfully I never heard that one LOLOL....

As for todays music......All Rap is Crap....  But some artist are trying to put the art back into music with moving lyrics and music.  Lady Gaga for one....Never cared for her much....but love her new song....it's MUSIC....not CRAP....   And a lot of the "Cross Over" Country is good also.

We would sing "They're Coming to Take Me Away" too, and "On Top of Spaghetti", "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah". Just one person had to start it and the rest joined in.

Takes a buttload of talent to write lyrics like that, dontcha know... And the thing that kills me is these mental midgets are probably making millions of $$ with that crap.

Then I see someone with a page that does simple, pencil-drawn cartoons that a 6-year-old could probably do, and they have 300-some patrons and get >$800 a month? WTF?  :whatthe: Ah, well....

A bit of Googling shows that there were discussions of SSS as early as 2012.  I believe Studio had it before Poser.

According to Wikipedia article on Poser versions, SSS came out in Poser 9 on September 21, 2011. I believe it was also in Poser Pro 2010 (released same day as P9). It still needed work though, as I recall. It looked very waxy. I remember that.

In the Subsurface Scattering article on WikiP, I found a referent to a 3D Max article on it March 5th, 2010. There's also one referencing Maya, but I could not go there. So I suspect they were the first to be talking about it, not DAZ or even Poser.

What does HSS stand for anyway?

I ask in the first place because when I did Poser textures for some of my characters and textures usable in DAZ I thought that I was told that DAZ wouldn't do SSS skin at all. Otherwise, I would have just made SSS skin for both - however the DAZ one looks. Now this was before I came here. I just remember there was some reason why I couldn't make a DAZ one.

I don't like being long-winded so I'll crunch this all down to the short version.

Concerning SSS:


Subsurface scattering (or SSS), also known as subsurface light transport (SSLT), is a mechanism of light transport in which light penetrates the surface of a translucent object, is scattered by interacting with the material, and exits the surface at a different point.


It was first developed at MIT by Henrik Wann Jensen, beginning in 1998 and was presented to the CGI community in the fall of 2000. The research on subsurface scattering at MIT was adapted by Pixar and became a standard in RenderMan by 2002 for realistic rendering of translucent materials such as skin, flesh, fat, fruits, milk, marble, and many others.


Pixar went on to win an academy award in 2004 using the research on subsurface scattering developed by Henrik Wann Jensen and his team at MIT.


In conclusion, Poser & Daz were the LAST on the list to make use of subsurface scattering, so don't get all excited.

About 9:30 pm US Central time, someone somewhere, presumably local, started up a vibration.  Not like the cheesy plastic things you mail order from Adam & Eve.com.  No.  More like an unbuffered (read giant shock absorbers as buffers) shaker screen, like an ore shakeout.  The frequency is LOW, you can't really "hear" it except every cell in your body, every part of the house, the yard, the car, the AIR and WATER, everything is vibrating.  The cats are irritated and scared.  It isn't coming from any car.   It takes a gargantuan amplitude to propagate this vibration for broad areas, like a town.   That is what is happening at this moment.  It is scary, it is affecting my heartbeat, my sanity.   Whoever it is doing this, STOP IT!


Wasn't maybe the same exact cause of the sound - whatever it was - but I do know what you're talking about and feeling, McG. And I totally get you begging for it to stop.

Where I used to live, it was late one night. I was trying to sleep and I heard an airplane fly over. Then came this sound like a very large bell had been rung and all you were hearing from it was the dopplering resonance of the bell - not the ding part. It continued, going west.

I could feel it as you described in my body - my heart, my stomach, everything - and I became tachychardic (rapid heart-beat) and nauseated. The cat was meowing piteously and then she threw up. If it was doing that to me, I can only imagine her distress in that moment. I know I heard an airplane before that began. Never heard those things again and hope I never do. It's deeply F'd up if someone is purposely doing that. 

Here, every now and then someone is running a VHF sound that is mind/ear-splitting and makes one very agitated. If you plug your ears, you can still hear it. It's like you can't get away from it. I did find that if I put my BOSE headphones on and turn on some music I can't hear it. However it's still affecting me, but not as much. Oddly enough, one day after that was going on, I saw a white van drive around the corner of the building and past, out to the street...and it had one of those truck-top antennae on it.

 :sure: ain't amusing, is it?

I don't like being long-winded so I'll crunch this all down to the short version.

Concerning SSS:


Subsurface scattering (or SSS), also known as subsurface light transport (SSLT), is a mechanism of light transport in which light penetrates the surface of a translucent object, is scattered by interacting with the material, and exits the surface at a different point.


It was first developed at MIT by Henrik Wann Jensen, beginning in 1998 and was presented to the CGI community in the fall of 2000. The research on subsurface scattering at MIT was adapted by Pixar and became a standard in RenderMan by 2002 for realistic rendering of translucent materials such as skin, flesh, fat, fruits, milk, marble, and many others.


Pixar went on to win an academy award in 2004 using the research on subsurface scattering developed by Henrik Wann Jensen and his team at MIT.


In conclusion, Poser & Daz were the LAST on the list to make use of subsurface scattering, so don't get all excited.
 :java: :tearlaugh:


Really, I just wanted to know was why I was told there was no SSS for DAZ in about 2011 or so.
I guess because the person who(ever) told me that knew it was a mess that didn't really work right as Dreamer explained.

But thank you for the history of it, my friend.

You're welcome. Sorry, I thought you were wanting to know where it began for your own research. I had looked into to it some years ago for my own projects at the time. I used the concept to create some custom shaders for my personal use.

I can share my data with ya if you ever need it, but I'll warn ya...it's a lot of math.

You're welcome, Fafnir. Always did like that song :smiley:

The VHF thing still goes on about once a month or so. I have to wonder if it has anything to do with that damned 5G stuff they're trying to foist off on us.

That was my thought on the vibrational thing - an experiment. I don't think it's crowd control, though it could be I suppose. It's like standing in front of the biggest, loudest stack of Marshall amps you ever saw and having your insides turned to jelly. Close enough.

Good Morning to all.......

Had a truck plow into a light pole on the highway so they shut all electricity off so they could dislodge the driver and clear up the the highway.  These are dual lamp metal light poles so they are HEAVY.  Slippery conditions this morning due to a foggy mist that froze on contact.  But I got Lorna to work on time LOL....

Tonight the real mess comes.  Ice and then some snow....but what else is new :java:

Anyway...they took the driver to the hospital by ambulance and hauled the rig and trailer away.....

Gonna be in here for a short time since I have a Appt with Olivia.  Just a check up on how the new meds are doing.  And change all my scripts so they can filled at WalGreens.  Took Fafnirs advice on that one.  Walmart prices were just about the same but the lines at Walgreens were much shorter...and the folks much friendlier. 

Now to grab my :java: Ahhhhhh.....and take a tour.....

Doubt it much.   This is too constant, it IS a motor sound, a motor (electric) with an imbalance.  This one is right at 60 Hz.  It is still going on, I dunno.  The cats seem to have adapted.   It started up, scared them, but they didn't get ate or anything so like 'Big Whoopee Doo!' and THEY relaxed.  I still can't find it.   It isn't in the house.   Checked every electrical mechanical device here.

Not the least bit amusing.   I can tell that it is a 60 Hz thing, exactly like an electric motor with a slight imbalance.   We have a RR, dual track with dual sidings, just 300 yd from the back of the house.  They do have AC units sometimes, heating units, powered fans.  But  not much that's gonna telegraph through the ground at 60 Hz this far or this strong.  I can see it in my glass of water.  It isn't making my heart beat faster, but irregularly. 
Went outside just now, feel it on the walls, concrete landing, not in the porch roof supports, not in the flagstones in the yard, not in the hardpack driveway, not in the car. 
So it is most likely a combination of fans setting up a resonance through the 100 yr old floor.

No TL, there isn't any roadwork in this area.   This is definitely a constant running motor.  And I am thinking it IS inside after all.   Window AC, deep freeze, refrigerator, floor fan.   But I unplugged them all and still felt it.  Has to be the BIL&Sis part.  They have 4 window AC's, two fridges, two freezer chests.   I don't go there though.  My and the sis get along as great as a leaking keg of gunpowder and a lit match.   Both are fine, so long as they don't meet.

You know me.  I just want the details right.   dRaCX is right.  Better ones in other renderers long ago.

I suspect that they've started (resumed) talking about SSS skins as they are finally becoming usable.  There's a sprinkling of them all the way back to AoA's stuff.  There were a number of deviantArt articles that, if you stuck with it for the hour of settings, were better than the average bear. 

I like Hellboy's new Maxx character's skin but it's the first one that I noticed recently which mentioned SSS.

Say, I picked up a few ceramic mugs at Dollar General, bigger than normal but exactly the same shape as good ol straight up n down MUGS.  They hold 2 cups of water with a bit of room for more at top.  Makes em useful for quick 2 cup measuring cups.  OR to hold 2 whole cups of COFFEE!   Or water or whatever.

Mogwai has had his visit with the Doc. now, got his vaccines caught up, got treatments for both for worms and fleas.  We're set!   The Doc. explained to me how cats teeth behave.  Their upper canines often, as with Mogwai, extend into the sinus cavity.  He got a sinus infection, the tooth root was affected and it got real loose.  Mogwai wiggled it out with his tongue.  Amazing.   I might frame this tooth man!

Just as I thought.

I don't know how many Hz the stuff I've heard is, but for sure it made my cat barf her insides out and I felt sick myself. Is there a meter or something?

Depends on the person and how they react to certain sounds. 60 Hz sounds like an electrical hum, my back stage amp makes the same sound if you unplug the jack while it's on. If it's got a lot of bass in it then can be pretty annoying.

Aelin is having some issues with her web today and doesn't really know what's wrong.

She'll be in when she can. Let's send her some good vibes to get it taken care of asap. :smiley:

Still snowin' :sno3:
Thanks Ray for your message earlier and for keeping everybody update!  :mwah:
Hi guys! The FAI has stopped to block us for the moment, I don't know if the fix is forever or just temporary. But from France it was impossible to reach suddenly servors from US and Asia.
From what I saw on downdetector.fr it was linked to IPV4 :whatthe: And they talked of a reparation not before tomorrow 6PM  :sure: It's the reason for what I'm not sure to stay forever tonihgt

Ahhh, glad to see you made it in Aelin! Makes one wonder what is going on, doesn't it? I hope it's nothing they can't fix soon - whatever it is.
You do whatever you need to do. It's not really in your hands about how it acts, is it? No.

Take care hon.

Nahhhh, that was the formaldehyde they used to use to decafinate coffee beans and all the preservatives in our food - preservation.

You know what's dumb? The people who started this country prospered by raising a commodity called Hemp. Hemp does not have any psychotropic properties. It's like cane. It's just a weed, but a very useful one. They made all sorts of things with it: paper, fabrics, hausers for the boats and rope for bundling and baskets; and it's good for cleaning the soil of bad things with no harm to itself. We've found even more things to do with it these days, like use for a very well insulated building material - better than bricks and longer lasting than most building materials. We can make 'plastic' out of it - that is to say hemp-based plastic. And you know what? It's been proven to decompose in the ground after 30 days. It just breaks apart and returns to the place from where it came. Compost it. Bury it in a dump...it'll go away in a month or so.

But then through willful ignorance and lies meant to protect someone's job that the stuff became illegal. You could smoke an acre and you wouldn't get anything but a sore throat. Why do y'all think Mr. Turtle-head made it legal in his state? I'll tell you why - $$$$$$$$.

Instead, we began to make things that were BAD for us, BAD for the environment, BAD for the planet: the air, the water, the ground...because we as a race are under various spells that we're so damn clever and smart. We're 'god-like'. We turn out to be the Devil.
The joke's on us in the end.

Just my 2 cents....

Poor Mogwai!  It sounds painful.   :shiv2:
It seems to be, his upper left whisker pad (lip) is puffed out, likely with abscess.   I know from all mine through the years pain in your mouth like that is some of the worst.   Been shot, stabbed, sliced, punctured and the majority of that stuff by Doctors.  Mouth hurts are the worst. He is laying out on a window shelf in LR soaking up some rays, just chillin.  That tooth socket needs to heal, hope he hasn't stuffed a bit of food in it.

I know we grow it here in Colorado but I don't know how many states will allow growing it. I'm not sure if it came with the Cannabis legalization or not. I think it did.

For sure they want to use it up north in the state to help clean up some contaminated ground. I think they're supposed to start doing that next year.

Hemp just needs to be put back where it belongs as a CROP. Hemp and Cannabis are related, but they are not the same thing - for those who don't know or are unsure.  CBD oil can be extracted from hemp but again it is not psychotropic (doesn't have THC). CBD is medicinal and can help with pain management from arthritis, fibro-myalgia, neuropathy and many other things. Helps sleep too.

I don't know, maybe they feel they can't have one at a time and both must be legalized together.

Just as I thought.

Well, I'm not sure why 60 Hz would make anyone feel uncomfortable. Doesn't a lot of our electronics run on 60 Hz normally?

I don't know how many Hz the stuff I've heard is, but for sure it made my cat barf her insides out and I felt sick myself. Is there a meter or something?

Two things we have to deal with, even with all 60 Hz stuff.   Resonant Harmonics, which is an objects property, like wood flooring, a chair, a glass.  Then there is Dissonant Harmonics, generated.   Under load, an AC motor will be slowed down slightly, and this sets up a slight difference in frequency.  Dissonance.  Two things running kinda lumpy set up a dissonance that is a couple three Hz off.   And when they are working at the same time in the same area, that can get very uncomfortable.  I am still feeling it, but putting the floor fan on a towel pad lessened it significantly, and putting a wood dowell under the window unit in my room also made a difference.   Those Harmonics work through the floor boards and walls, 100+ year old hardwood.   And my furniture, sitting on bare wood flooring, then on me.  Ugh. 
I saw on Mythbusters you can break glass with the right frequency.  An objects resonant frequency.   Makes pretty good sense when you are experiencing it.   What was weird was how strong it got.  Now its barely felt, though nothing changed with the source of the problem.   Just added mechanical insulation to them.  :)

Good morning to All  :sno2:

The Deep Freeze has moved in on us now. It's 17° and feels like 3°. Foggy here this morning, so everything got covered in a thin sheet of ice first. Now snowing. 

Hope things are better where you are! Stay warm :smiley:

We've had dense fog for two days, now have high winds, fire warnings, and hard freeze warnings for tonight.  Will have clear skies, 25 mph wind, and also 17°F.  It was 71°F an hour ago.   It's 65 F and 49% humidity now.   Fun week eh!

It's 9° here and feels like -8°, already 10° below what tonight's low was supposed to be. 16 mph wind and still snowing!

Thank you Rod :smiley: I appreciate that. Yes, it would be and we'd be a lot healthier for it than all these chemicals and playing gods with GMOs.

Gaia sings: "My dog has fleas!"

I did just learn that the Kentucky farmers say that Hemp is potentially far more lucrative than tobacco. And last year in December a part of the Farm Bill made growing Hemp of under 0.03% THC as a commodity crop was now legal. Lol. The approved seeds came from CO and the man who's now our governor co-signed on the bill. So, it IS legal to grow Hemp now in all states as long as the THC content is 0.03% or less - to answer Fafnir's question.

That just kind of slid by under the radar, didn't it?

Olena is amazing. She's a shaman which makes what she can do totally cool. I think one of those people there at the end said she was Saka - Scythian. She looks about right for that. Awesome outfit, too.

She appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2018:

Olena Podluzhnaya Uutai, 31, was born in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic in Russia to Ukranian parents.

When Simon Cowell asked her why she made the long trip to England for the show she replied "I want to share my culture with the rest of the world."

Ah yes...a sad thing seen on FB:

Oreo, the raccoon who was the inspiration for and 'face of' (model for) Rocket Raccoon in "Guardians of the Galaxy" has passed on. He was 9 years old and was apparently quite the little trooper himself.

In your own way, you left a legend behind, Oreo. Rest in peace little guy :hartz:

 :thud: Have to work tomorrow and was told at the last moment, as in noon today, that buses for the school board have to be reprogrammed.

400 of them

So not happening between two people in one day.

a**hats

So glad they decided to ask both of us first, if we had any plans for the weekend before "volun - telling" us that we no longer have a weekend.

Oh BTW that was sarcasm

4:30 on a cold raining morning  cows are wet holding  lot is  muddy  full of crap   when cows get in barn they are a mess you have to was tits  with warm disinfectant and  water  rinse and dry then hang machine if you are lucky you have not been slapped in the face with a wet shitty tail but when you go back to remove milking machine  the cow  will get you with her tail right in the face  not a pleasant thing  but kind of funny if you ain't on the receiving end  now that's a morning  wake up call you will remember for a while

Yup. At least Rocket is 'cemented' as a character now - although how many times we might see him again is questionable at this point.

I think Rocket was definitely the favorite of mine in the GotG 1 and 2 characters. Sometimes he was more human than human. That's what made him a lovable character.

Technically there is no excuse for any vice that man follows ... however I was not making an excuse just an observation.

I control how much I drink and it is certainly better then the alternatives that one could be addicted too

Good morning guys!

Good night, Aelin.  I hope your sleep is peaceful.
Have a good night, hon! Sleep well.
Cats decided it wasn't time to sleep this morning, weekend or not weekend. Jump jump jump was in program. But I prefer cats than other things. Btw, crossing fingers, but this week was a time with police, because of a complaint against the neighbor. I don't know I told you, but he is passed to death threats against one of us, don't know who like it was screams "you above (the 'you' singular in French) I will tear off your head". That being the one I can write :shrug: He was forced to go to police for a convocation at the end of January for that and all sounds he does.
Since then, he is more quiet. Police said also he said to them he is looking to leave and go elsewhere to live  :pleeeeez: may this be real and fast. We want to be back to a peaceful part of our district.
