  1. Hot at work tonight, lost 6 pounds in 8 hours.....

      Ditto! Hydrate! I remember an old NIKE commercial and it said if you're thirsty you're already a quart low!

      Methinks that Nike might have a vested interest. :)

      My understanding is that thirst is an accurate reflection of need, but that doesn't change the fact that 6 pounds in 8 hours is unhealthy - unless perhaps you are an elephant following a Richard Simmons video.

      It wasn't that hot (93 indoors, 102 near the ovens)but it was humid and we were short handed so there wasn't much down time. I always take 4 or 5 liter size bottles of sparkling water to work with me and drink them all but rarely need to "pause for the cause."

      Nope, I'll never get sunstroke, my water processing equipment works overtime.....but thank you for the good advise!

      Terrible to have to make that choice. The weather has been back and forth . But extremely hot this past weekend. sweltering!

      Air conditioning, ice cream, & root beer floats always feel good in the Summertime.

  3. Today after washing my truck a group of birds flew over and dropped several loads on it so scrambled up a few eggs and leaned on my truck while I ate them. Haven't seen any birds overhead since......

      it's like they look for the clean cars, I swear...animal conspiracy. Last week I drove through a bug hatch of some kind, the guts just smeared around on my windshield with the cleaner solution and I could hardly see for a minute. GROSS!

  4. Daughter got engaged 2 weeks ago and today I read an article that the "average" wedding costs almost $27,000!!! Anybody know a millionaire looking to give money away??

      I am with you shecolt. We cannot just give an open check....or we will drain our savings. I have known people who have spent 100K on a wedding....craziness in it's utmost form.

    3. subvet

      subvet

      Yeah but you should have seen the glares I got from my wife AND daughter when I (jokingly) suggested to have it in a country church we all know and have a pot luck in the basement.....

      I could feel the stares even though I wasn't looking their way. Evidently wedding days are nothing to joke about.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yup, for the bride to be it is their opportunity to play the role of princess. Everything is for her: the cake, the gown, the photographer, the presents, & the shiny diamond ring...Meanwhile, no one came to see rental tuxedo boy & all he gets is a thin silver band on his finger that looks like a washer that fell off a major appliance. Wedding are no laughing matter from the female perspective...EVER!!!

  5. Just finished watching "Forrest Gump" again. Three hours well spent.

      love that movie, so funny and sweet... it's one that can be watched over and over again

      The recurring theme of neophyte innocence is what makes that film so compelling in my view.

      I do not think I have it...need to check. Thanks!

      If you really want to watch it, find the first season and try it. These are the last episodes before cancellation and really aren't as good as the early ones were.

  7. My daughter is engaged, wedding plans indicate the wedding is NEXT year.....Hallelujah! I might be able to pay for this without getting a loan......

    1. southwest1

      I'm doing my little celebration dance for you too subvet!!! All kidding aside, I'm glad that your daughter will be happy & content with her new finance. He sounds like a fine, upstanding young man to me. Congratulations once again to you & your family subvet. Very nice indeed.

    2. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      many good wishes for you and your family! and here's hoping you don't need that loan! LOL

  8. Had a great Easter holiday. Family, food, friends, what more does anyone need?

    1. shecolt

      Glad you had a great day. I did until I made the mistake of tasting a Cadbury cream egg. Yuck! Can't understand why anyone likes them. Just tasted like slimy sugar to me.

    2. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      wonderful! me too! ready for more of those memories

  9. I lived in the Dallas area for 13 years, family and friends came out from tornadoes ok thank goodness.

      :) I'ts a whole different world I guess.

      When I hear my brother - who spent the first 40 years of his life living in NJ, then Philly, then Long Island - talking with a southern drawl, my mouth just hangs open in astonishment with probably spit pooling up on my shirt. Not saying it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I just can't wrap my head around it. At LEAST he isn't a Cowboys fan. That would be just too much.

    4. subvet

      subvet

      That is a problem because the accent is real easy to pick up, the odd thing is when I visit with friends or family from there, which happens often, the drawl creeps back into my speech and it stays for days after getting home again.

      Yes, I know nutrition should come 1st I suppose...Emphasis on should...but I do try to get my nephews to eat a least 1 healthy item while I watch over them. Perhaps, I should take some pointers from you Gramz. But, I was glad to see you splurge & give Kyndall a few M & M's under the table...LOL Gramz.

      Thanks subvet now Geometry and circumference finally makes sense & has relevance to me. So much for all those pointless general education college courses in my lifetime. HA! HA!

      Thanks for the bread!

    3. southwest1

      Subvet, you literally make bread & earn bread at the same time. Not every occupation can make that claim with a straight face. And just like the yeast in your bread, I'm sure that you "rise" to the occasion every time when called upon to too. Well done subvet.

  14. A reply I made now has a gold star that says "[popular" on it, first time I've seen something like that. Now I'm wondering what other surprises are programmed in to this board?

      Thank you MIColtsFan. What did the red marks mean :)

  15. Ok, the day got better even though I have to go to work in a few minutes, back at O-dark-30!

      low 25 high 58 today... just like spring should be.. the heat wave last week was solar flare fluke, nice while it lasted other than the potential for the crops to be messed up, especially the apples and cherries!!!!!!

  20. Forget what I said last night about the heat at work. Just spent 8 hours in a freezer the size of a basketball court chipping ice at -10 degrees. I hope to warm up by morning......

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      You are going to have a 'pothole' forming in your bones....big change in temps makes concrete crumble....not good on the bones either. I am living proof.

      I get that, not a big fan of the heat. My office is air conditioned, but I frequently have to go out on the shop floor and we have ovens, it can get upwards of 120*F.. going to be a long summer, if 80*F days are starting already. The fog here was fanstastic this morning though 0.3m visibility, was really cool rolling off the lake

  22. The Colts cleaning (or is it purging) house continues. For the first time in years I'll have to use a program to know the players.

      Why is it necessary to completely destroy a team? Other NFL teams fonts seem to go that route when trying to improve or even rebuild.

      Subvet, after checking schedules for the teams where he could possibly end up, I too am hoping for Miami. Miami will be coming to Cincinatti and Indy this year, my best shot for going to see him agian..

      AZ with WR Larry Fitzgerald & Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt would be very appealing pieces to Manning no question. Seattle with RB Marshawn Lynch is a great piece too.

      " Everybody wants Peyton except the Colts." Excellent point subvet. Why is that anyway? I know the Irsay answer: "We are in full re-building mode starting now." Never underestimate Yoda AKA Peyton Manning...He will make you pay heavily every single solitary time.

  25. Gotta go to work early today for safety training. I like the OT but the subject is boooooring!!

    1. BrentMc11

      I would love to sit in...used to train it in trucking. Every industry is interesting. Yes sometimes it is like watching paint dry, but so important.

      I can sit through almost any lecture topic/safety training as long as I get well compensated for my time & effort. Keeping all your limbs intact & burn free is a good policy in my book.
