2019 Hurricane season

29 August 2019 - 05:44 AM

It appears we'll be getting our first hurricane of the season.  Hurricane Dorian is strengthening, and headed for the East Coast of Florida.

 

Utyer ... you might be right in the path.  Hopefully, it'll just be a rain maker and not a destroyer like Hurricane Michael was.

 

I think Wife and I will be fine, since we are far enough inland for some buffering effects.  And we sit just high enough that flood waters aren't a major concern.


SPAM ATTACK IS ONGOING ... we're trying to keep up.

25 July 2019 - 08:26 AM

Thank you, to all who are reporting the ongoing spams that are flooding (or trying to) the site.  The moderators have flagged and deleted upwards of 20 spammers.

If you see a spam ... please wait for a little while before reporting it.   If you think we missed it, then report it.

 

We're on it.  Every report also has to be deleted, which just takes more time.

 

Again, thank you for your assistance.

 

Mike

Sorry Mark ... I liked the knotted cord style better.

Very easy to tie ... maybe 3 to 5 minutes each until you get the hang of it, then just a couple minutes each.
