  1. Good morning MGSpies from basement central on a clear sky not frozen WNY Wednesday with milder weather in for today high of 50s then dropping daily by 10 degrees to the next freezing days no commute workday already rocking the network solving issues with the major payroll system upgrade had a great lap counter around the day yesterday including the tallest lemon meringue pie I have ever seen, as tall as it was wide, something new for a celebratory "cake" keeping tabs on everyone and the excitement and drama shared, thanks so much for including us all in your current events on this community call eve hope golf is a part of your day 99 Beep Beep
  2. Now that is a great birthday cake - had the tallest lemon meringue pie you ever saw for real Thanks to @MattF @sirchunksalot @rkj427 @Josh Parker @ParFore74x @Preeway @GolfSpy_KFT @GolfSpy_BEN @Rob Person @Michael.Sandoval33 @tdroma98 for your best wishes for my Fifty Thirteenth (or is is Thirty Thirty Third?) birthday - only just getting started as a one day per year celebration is on from now until April 23rd Edit: Easier to see the height of the pie with it sliced, and yes that is one candle (to keep the fire suppression system from making the place look like @Josh Parker's jacuzzi hot tub)
  3. Good morning MGSpies from my downtown parking spot by the office building with hot coffee and Ocelot by Emancipator on Pandora on this Tuesday when I'm claiming either Fifty Thirteen or Thirty Thirty Three for my own as many would say I'm not like many people dinner later but a full workday first. Hope golf is part of your day 100
  4. Good morning MGSpies on a sunny cold WNY holiday Monday so the work computer is not network connected and functionally inert and slept in like it was still the weekend (sorry guys working today) because it still is! Plan today is for a late brunch with son in Rochester then... not sure but perfect for a holiday Monday hope golf is a part of your day
  5. Just the numbers as of 2/18/2024 4:30 PM give or take a minute or two. The minutes number looks pretty good
  6. Love this - huge numbers guy myself and glad to know there's at least one more of us lurking around!
  7. Good morning MGSpies from wintery cold WNY on this holiday weekend middle day Sunday with Veteran curling on again after a 4 week hiatus for various reasons. Dinner plans for later. Went to a local Veteran sendoff for our beloved local pro Brian Jacobs yesterday, an hour of socializing while we took turns hitting on a bay at the local golf dome. Brian is heading to Ballen Isles Resort Golf Club in Palm Beach Garden, FL to be their first ever Director of Instruction overseeing teaching pros. Great supporter of Veteran golf making lasting memories and he will be missed here greatly. Hope golf is a part of your day 102
  8. EP genres of non-golf YouTube channels tend to be in 4 camps: Sailing (my first love before golf) - Sailing SV Delos, Sailing La Vagabonde, Sailing Ruby Rose, Sailing Doodles, Sailing Good Bad and Ugly, Calico Skies Sailing, Taylor's Travels, MJ Sailing, Sailing Nandji, Captain Rick Moore, Spear It Animal General Aviation (always wanted to fly) - Aviation 101, Baron Pilot, Mooney 201er, Premier 1 Driver, Blancolirio, Niko's Wings, DutchPilotGirl Vehicle (all kinds) related (just my kind of brain candy) - Ron Pratt, Riding Shotgun, Happiness By The Mile, Wide World of Trains, Lawrie's Mechanical Marvels, Generation Tech, Real Engineering, Fractal Universe, Millennial Farmer, Kate's Ag, Ben Elias, Docuworld Music - Aram Bedrosian, Gigi Vibes, Vince Guaraldi - and do a lot of searching by title. Nothing stops me from bait clicking on dashcams of crashes, chases, or anything about science and the universe. But everything is neglected for the most part once golf season kicks in.
  9. Good morning MGSpies on this not so early but early enough to post on Page 500 of The Good Morning Thread Saturday! Light coating of snow overnight and can commiserate with just about everything that has been posted this morning from not a lot planned to troublesome days with no idea what was causing it, to kids with funny behaviors and such. Sunshine is the bright spot of this morning hope golf is a part of your day 103
  10. Only 5 weeks until Spring and the Vernal Equinox. This was a fun kind of snow tonight letting the corgis outside.
  11. Good morning MGSpies from cold windy WNY on this Friday in real winter which has pretty much missed us until now (I know January snow, that was just, ok winter too) but it is c o l d although I think @ParFore74x has us beat and remembering my one winter in Kansas I know that cold. liking the new computer now the permissions, defaults, accesses, programs, everything is working like the old one did, getting on the network so far is also easier so heading into the workday with optimism on the no commute agenda enjoyed the community call last night, was much more spirited and that as Jamie said marked the annual mark so it is now beginning its 2nd year! Hope golf is a part of your day! 104
  12. I know the feeling, reminds me of trying to decide to commit to the Queenstown Harbor trip. And here is the guy who put that last straw in the balance that tipped it towards GOTTA GO! on the Queenstown Harbor trip No doubt about it, just gotta decide and you know there is only one real answer. Besides, we really do want to witness the technique now made famous by the expert and King of the False Turn (and even doing all that feel bad not being able to play as well as you do )(not really)
  13. Good morning MGSpies of old and welcome in the new friends on this cold winter that might look like winter again this afternoon WNY community call Thursday joys of a new work computer still getting it configured to the efficiency of the one that was turned in, ah there is the network connection now coffee needs to be retrieved from the pot but it is a no-commute workday so all is well looking forward to this afternoon and hope golf is a part of your day 104
  14. Similar to the Full English Breakfast! 2 eggs, sausage links, bacon, blood pudding, cooked tomatoes, mushrooms, potatoes, beans, toast with butter and marmalade, orange juice and tea or coffee. Shoot now I'm hungry again Teaser, the Culture Cafe that is 6 miles and 14 minutes from Kingsmill Resort (according to Google Maps) has an English Breakfast for a reasonable price.
  15. Good morning MGSpies from sub-freezing cold but not frosty WNY on this community call eve as I like to think of Wednesday no doubt going to come with the references... hot coffee helping the space heater warm the bunker HQ at Fort Home Station with a new work laptop and the joys of setting everything up the way worked well for me on the old one that served well but became obsolete unable to receive upgraded updates let's see what else today brings! Hope golf is a part of your day 105
  16. Good morning MGSpies from a frosty dark downtown parking spot by the office for today's rendition of workday on this Tuesday with A Letter from Home by Ulrich Schnauss on Pandora to enhance the coffee for a peaceful start. Hope golf is a part of your day 106
  17. It's only 2574 hours now, that went pretty fast didn't it?
  18. Good morning MGSpies from dark cold WNY on this post Super bowl Monday as my work computer sorts out its network issues no much in plans for today so going to be surfing the Forum and roll putts later coffee is helping, hope golf is a part of your day 107
  19. My January-February 2024 winter weather snow story (with pictures!). The before on January 11 having just installed the new boat tarp before the first winds and rains approached on an unseasonably warm day that made rope handling with bare hands comfortable, no heavy jacket needed for this task. Also had a presence of mind to brace the fence gate to counteract the wind pressures of Gale and Storm force winds that accompany winter storms in this region. An 8' 2x4 held fast against the gate by the latch and staked to the ground with a length of rebar shoved in to a depth at least a foot below grass level and a rope tied from rebar stake to fence gate rail by the latch ensures no movement as wind pressures do end up on both sides of the gate. The beginning on January 14. Picket and chain link fences are 4' high. The end of the Lake Effect storms on January 17. This is the level the wind did not blow away. Neighbor's fence at the bottom of the yard is 7' high. Snow level on the patio was level with the deck outside the kitchen door. The compaction and sublimation of the snow load making it appear like less snow than was evaporating with temps below freezing this taken on January 24. Corgis could finally see down the yard as that place where Gwynedd is standing was 4 times deeper in the uncompacted snow around the stamped down pathway created for them to get out into the yard. The 3+" ground clearance of a Corgi does not bode well for them cutting their own path once snow exceeds 12" deep. The meltdown was nothing quick, this taken on January 28. I shoveled off the patio from the kitchen deck railing to the boat trailer hitch and hanging solar lanterns to the blue tarp after this was taken and the remaining snowpile by the boat today and the snowpile from what piled up from the boat tarp is all that remains in the backyard. What remains was what was shoveled or plowed, here in West Seneca as most places in WNY have no snow remaining at all. This taken today February 11. A month in the life of a Western New Yorker on the tradewinds downwind side of Lake Erie. Yard cleanup time. Yay Yesterday I noticed the turf removed beside the driveway was no longer frozen in the ice melt. It was skimmed off by wife's cousin who has a plow business, he was passing the house and dropped his truck blade to clear out the heavy snowplow load pushed into the end of our driveway by the town plows. Says he's interested in me staying healthy. It is good to have family with equipment and kind hearts. Healthy is being mindful how I shovel the entire property from house to street including walkways. Managing time on task and effort for one person is no different that doing it for a squad. There is something to being minted an Army Combat Engineer, as an enlisted Soldier 2/3 of my lifetime ago. Those skills just never leave. Come on golf season!
  20. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! The countdown daily will be timed to what is shown on the counter top of this thread at the time my post is written. Nothing like a well placed comment to sharpen the tip of my spear
