I canned green beans for years and those needed a pressure cooker (tomatoes don't). Scared me to death. I'd scurry into the kitchen to check the pressure and scurry back out again.



I think my guardian angel drinks.

They also had money buried....plus other supplies. They were weird, and believed that the year 2000 was gonna be the last.



Sounds like their kid turned out weird, too. Not surprising.

For me, the eclipse was a bust. Husband thinks it got a little dim. I don't think so. All the shadows from trees and things were the same, as sharp as when it started. Granted, we're in the 91% category, but I was expecting more than this.

It seemed less "Oh hell, it's bright outside!" and a bit cooler during the eclipse.

Went to mom and dad's. We made a pinhole box. Got some great pix. Wish I had used a longer box to get a bigger image. Due to the lensing thru the pinhole, the image is inverted...



First used a welding glass to do a selfie (wasn't about to fry my phone optics), but I can't zoom in that mode. Then tried the front view cam. Didn't mess with the settings so I got lens flare and an internal reflection that looks good...but again inverted...



Got some nice pix when mom came home with the glasses...



Some lensing thru the leaves, an odd feathered cloud, and a direct shot thru clouds...



We got about 80% coverage in Stow,OH. April 8, 2024 there will be 100% coverage. Mom is thinking she won't be around then. Shit, she'll only be 86 and 4 months.

We were at 85%, and I thought it would be much darker than it was. It was slightly cooler.

I still thought it was a very cool event. I love stuff like this.

Wish I had been somewhere interesting (like on the Appalachian Trail) instead of at work.

just got home from work. less than 24 hours to go. got piles of clothes, need to put them in packing cubes and in suitcases, and add a few toiletries, but basically ready. SO EXCITED!

also, no1, bought a bunch of incubators for my pokemon eggs. I'm going to hatch them all so I can get lots of Japanese eggs! probably filled with same crappy pokemon, but worth a shot.

poof, it was so funny to see you in the green thread!

I will do my best to post photos and updates every couple days. moles is on my list of people to text photos to for uploading, so I will try to remind him to post here, too.

We have a large chest freezer. We vacuum-bag & freeze the produce & berries now. Canning is too much trouble & we think frozen foods taste better.
We also started a pot of sauerkraut a few weeks ago.

Instead of the "Everything but Woot" tab, we are under the "World of Woot" tab just to the left, then "Return of the Green Grotto, part III"

It's so dry here.
1/10th of an inch rain in 3 months.

The sprinklers ain't keeping up.
75-80+ all next week.
It love the warm weather, I know when the weather breaks it'll be crappy weather for 7 months...

We have also had an unusually dry summer. We are looking at record cool temps this coming week, maybe in the low 60's on Tuesday.

Just wait...I leave for vacation the end of Sept...it will start raining the day I leave.

For old-timers here, I've checked with Zea and Kidcrosby, both in the Houston area, and they're okay so far.

Come on over. We're on the WoW tab instead of the EBW tab. Usually somewhere near the top. We're a bit weird.
