    Yup, it's butternut. We don't bother growing pumpkins anymore. Instead we grow the butternut squash; it does better. The one year we planted it where the old pig house use to be (long since collapsed and removed) and the squash went absolutely crazy. The vines were growing up the trees. This year was way to wet and a lot of the plants suffered unfortunately.
    My cousin's only son has been recently hospitalized, and is tentatively scheduled for surgery on 11/21/17 for a brain tumor. The doctors also noted abnormalities on the spine. He's only 1 1/2 years old. Prayers and thoughts for the family are appreciated at this difficult time. If willing, please share Baby Odin's Story with others. Thank you.

He made a buzzer so that if the solar runs out the buzzer will flick on and let us know the fridge is without power. We used to have a bigger chest freezer but my dad wanted one that was more efficient so we ended up getting a new chest freezer, but it's smaller than are old one so we can't fit nearly as much.

    Lillian how old is your kid? I wish we had Florida weather. It was in the 50s today with rain but then it's going to drop down to 32 tonight. Grrrr.
    I always make my pumpkin pie out of butternut squash here. (they actually call butternut squash pumpkin here) That's a very ingenious way to use solar power when possible, but also make sure you know when the solar runs out and you have to switch to mains. Your dad's very clever.

    Thanks! It IS pretty nice there. Interesting is good too, though. I kind of wish our park was a bit more interesting.

    Did you say scotch on the rocks, Bry? Yes, thanks, I'll have one of those. *holds out glass* What? It's after noon. I've been a busy little bee this morning, I deserve to kick back with a drink or two.

    Well, I have three kids, actually. Ages 21, 15, and 12.

    Note to self - don't ever work with glittery stuff while sitting at your desk ever again in your whole life.

    I think I will have glitter on my chair until June.

    Oh god. Glitter's to be avoided at all costs.

    I will only tolerate glitter from mid-November to 1 January. *g*

    Ergh. I hate when my computer plays up. I hope you can get it working again, Effie.

    Effie?

    Glitter is against the law in my world. Okay, it’s just not allowed in my house. My boys’ hair is basically Velcro. I’d have to shave it to get glitter out, and I’m saying this from personal experience.

    Also, good morning from sunny Orlando where I wish WISH I’d found the blackout curtain last night, instead of ten minutes ago when the sun woke me up.

    Sllllllleeeeeeeeeeepppp!!!!!

    Also, BF, you’ll get a kick out of this. I went to the bathroom this morning and didn’t turn on the light (my eyes!!) so I was using the light of my phone. I glanced over to the toilet paper roll and kept blinking because I was seeing double, my hand hovering in the air, trying to decide which image was the correct one. Finally I made a random grab and realized there are actually two toilet paper dispensers on the wall. My vision is just fine. Almost

    Morning all. Just a quick hi. I’m up with the husband who is getting ready for work. And then I’m off to bed again.

    Good morning, reppers!

    I'm nowhere exciting, just the living room. I think I'll get a haircut today. It's grown a little too long for my liking, and I have to get rid of my dry ends.

    Yup, I drove my mom nuts as a kid. I think I still drive her nuts and I'm older than your oldest. Ha ha ha!

    Ah, you’re a young gun. Enjoy it.

    The truth is, my kids are hands down THE most awesome kids ever. I tease that they make me crazy or whatever, but honestly, what I did to deserve them, I just don’t know. They’re great.

    Good later afternoon, peoples!

    It's rather windy here today, so colder than expected. But no snow, so it's all good.

    I finished the edit of my author's Ch. 8. I haven't heard from him yet, so he's either digesting it or spitting on it.

    Does anyone here have any knowledge of physics. Is there a real, not theoretical, substance that can co-exist as a gas, liquid, and solid?

    Well my eyes are up to their tricks again, I'm tired, and I have more work to do. So I will see you later. After I play a couple of games.

    Yes, late 80's/early 90's, because I came here in 90 and was just in time for the tail end of Effie and her pals. I reckon Effie is a national treasure. *G*

    Morning all.

    Southy, yeah, that's what I'm afraid of... and why I said I'd have glitter on my chair until June. I was just reworking some holiday picks that had glittery berries on them and some of the glitter came off the berries. So I didn't actually fling glitter about.
    Last edited by Jaymz Connelly; Today at 04:05 AM. Reason: cause I really do know the difference between pics and picks.

    I have found glitter up to two years after the glitter incident. I curse glitter.


    MFR: I think so, but my brain hurts. Look at this, it may help http://thekidshouldseethis.com/post/...e-triple-point. If nothing else the video is cool.

    When getting edits back digesting it or spitting co-exist.

    Glitter is evil. When I worked in retail, I was covered in the crap from August to Easter. No matter how hard you try to get it off of you, it just won't budge.
