It's always weird and wonderful to get email from friends in the other hemisphere -- especially during winter when it's their summer.

It stopped snowing! You can see we've got a bit of accumulation. Also a strange bright light in the sky.

Forget if I wondered about this on here before. Anyone else do this?

Been doing it for many years. I often wonder about progress though. Esp when it becomes an arg like 180m like the other day (let someone's dog out).

I think I'll redo it as a bash function to show some progress.

Funny. While I was typing this it went off ;-)

We got a bit of snow overnight and now it is hovering about the freezing level and may rain :-(
Makes a horrible mess. No I am Not going to shovel it! Waiting for a plow to show up.

So my new housmate is inundated with food from her parents.
Gee. What a shame.
She invited me to 'help'.
No problemo! :-) I can be *very* helpful that way! :-)
Avocados getting soft? I can help! Grapes on the edge? No problem! Eggs and cheese? Please! Smoked salmon? OK!
I donated my own rye bread (coz I'm generous that way).
Baked the eggs at 425F in the avocados.

My town in northern BC Canada is warmer than the surrounding area. Fruit trees grow well here and there are lots of fish and wildlife. These are some cherry and plum trees I picked and some sockeye I smoked. Sockey in the Skeena river are around 5kg or so. Chinook salmon can get up to 50kg, but I like sockeye. My daughter has had very good success with tomatoes and the like lately too.

pretty damn rare really when you consider just my province has like 150,000 black bears and around 15,000 grizzly (brown) bears - the ones with the hump.

They are kinda big and when you come across one in the bush, you have no problem just backing away. Back. Back. Back...

Never turn and run. That pisses them off for some reason...

I'm baffled. Domain name was renewed by... ah. I see. she let it expire for 12 hrs.

Now it is clientHold :"This status code tells your domain's registry to not activate your domain in the DNS and as a consequence, it will not resolve. It is an uncommon status that is usually enacted during legal disputes, non-payment, or when your domain is subject to deletion."
