49* and sunny - did manage to actually leave the house this morning, had to help friend drain his camp.

 

One of the joys of no electricity or central heat-300 gallons back to the lake.

Hunters orange is not for fashion, think I've had same vests, jackets, caps and hats for 30 years. Required wear vs oopsies and life flight.

 

Still supposed to get a rainy and windy 60mph Nor'easter, so the leaves still on trees might not last much longer.

 

Best shot of Rangeley this morning for color.

@catwoman500   Yes do enjoy your pumpkin pie for me too.  I use artificial sweeteners and I am able to make a nice pecan pie and most other desserts but regular pumpkin pie does not play nice with artificial sweeteners.  Pumpkin cheesecake does very well though.

 

@Frozenoem  Yes the wearing of the orange!  I send hubby to work at homestead with very bright orange shirt.  It has been so long since I have been to the homestead that I have not bought the required clothing Woman Sad.

Greetings,

Saw on the News today, that a yellow cardinal was spotted and photographed. I learned something new today. I had no idea Cardinals could be yellow also. Just beautiful here. 55 presently going up to 67. The sun is out. Also, The News reports  a beautiful baby whale Bering spotted.  Take care of yourself and others. Nancy

54* and cloudy - saw my first bright orange painted horse of the season.

 

Which means moose season has begun for one week. First human sighted wearing orange to mulch leaves, that will be me.

 

One of the joys of living in the country or even a village, self preservation becomes a good idea.

 

@n566192l 

Surprise me on flavors, just counting down the days to doctors appt's at this stage.

Hi, All,

Today is just gorgeous! It's 70 inside and out! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. Lots going on around the neighborhood today. Looks like the next door neighbors are getting a new garage door, and the people who moved in catty-corner across the street are having a HUGE shed built. I accomplished cleaning the porch, and other than cooking up some veggies, that will be the extent of my exertion today. In the middle of doing the porch I had to come in and change from a sweatshirt to a tee. I'm very achy after the porch job, so decided to have a sit-down, coffee, and chat with you all.

Also...I have decided that sometime this fall I will have that elusive pumpkin pie that I haven't had in 2 years. Hope to find a small one somewhere so it isn't wasted.

Have a lovely week! N.

Greetings,

Saw on the News that the Biggest avocado, weighing in at over 5 bls was grown in Hawaii. 

Frozen, I have a box ready to go to you. Should I include ensure. If so please advise what flavor.

Weather is nice and warm and sunny. Just finished my physical therapy and knee shots.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your day. Nancy

@LaDolceVita 

 

I don't know if you need Brave, it's fast , secure and has adblockers. I use on desktop and phone for that speed.

 

Passwords I'm slightly paranoid 500 30-character passwords, and use manager that's part of my security package, I'm paying for it. Don't like saving passwords in browser, even Safari.

 

Vision had cataracts, new lenses in my eyes. I blew up my fonts on cellphone.

 

Settings>Accessibility>
Display and Text size>Large font🤣. And chose my happiness point for reading without glasses.

 

Appetite is still hit or miss, can eat an entire cheesecake and still lose weight. Still 60 pounds lighter but, have kept 15 pounds on, since March.

 

I miss my extra padding, like a bear for warmth during hibernation or winters.Taking something for appetite and aches.

 

Still dizzy, still seeing doctors and no joy or answers.15 months of the same bs.

Time to play on woodpile, 68* and sunny.

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this cool and over cast morning on this Sunday morning in October 2019.

This morning brings some football withdrawal as the Packers do not play until Monday night. UW Madison keeps rolling on with a Super Defensive that has held 4 teams scoreless. 

Wisconsin’s football team is good this season — like really, really good — but much of the focus has been on running back and Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor. And that’s understandable.

But the Badgers’ defense has been practically impenetrable and is the best in the nation. The defense entered Week 7 ranked No. 1 in both average points against (5.8) and average yards per game allowed (178.6), and it seems likely to remain at the top of those two categories going into Week 8.

The latest victim of Wisconsin’s dominating defense was Michigan State, which lost, 38-0, in Madison on Saturday. It was the Badgers’ fourth — 4TH! — shutout of the season, and they didn’t give up points through the first 10 quarters of their schedule. They also have not yet trailed in a game.

Perhaps the most absurd stat, however, is that Wisconsin has allowed the same number of touchdowns this season as its defense has scored. It’s four, which is wild.

Hoping everyone has a great week ahead and restful night's sleep.

Hi folks. Finally some rain for us here in the dust bowl.  Sometimes we do not get rain till late in November and then it just keeps raining until summer.  I am still struggling to keep up some semblence of a normal life, not really succeeding.  Dogs are well, mom is well and I am just tired.

 

@Frozenoem   Sounds like your appetite is OK at least.   Curious about  the different browsers you are using on iphone.  I am only using Safari  mostly because of saved passwords.  Do I need Brave?   I also need glasses, can hardly see stuff on my phone!   That means the eye doctor and I cannot get there too easily, exam takes a while.

I know I'm late been occupied, tests 🤬, 63* and cloudy.

 

@n566192l 

 

Been thinking about your inability to PM and read this bit of n AARP help files, a place I haven't been since maybe 2002-3.

 

Thought maybe you should check your setting, they're illustrated on the page.

 

 The fact that you can post in this group suggests it may just be a setting needs to be tweaked.

 

https://community.aarp.org/t5/Technology/How-do-I-send-a-private-message/ta-p/2185159

 

And on that cheery note I'm ravenous and need to call for takeout.
