I'd love to get your rain. And yes, it is definitely dry here.

I wish we could send you some of OUR rain, it's been a cold, wet, bummer of a summer up here in Juneau. When my wife retires in a few years we're ready to trade in this constant damp for a drier climate. The eastern part of WA state is definitely on the list of places to check out.

Ha! Never a dull moment here. I really do love my life these days. No hummingbirds in the UK? I didn't realize that. But I'm sure you have a few things there that we don't have here.

I moved west from New Jersey in 1997 to escape the high cost of living and cold winters. I moved to Washington in 2013 because of my cherry drying work and a real desire to reboot in a new place. I love having a weather station and think the weather am is a good addition, although it does make me a bit homesick when I'm away for the winter. Thanks so much for the good wishes. You know you're always welcome to visit if you need a change from Florida!

Thanks about the shelves. They are, believe it or not, IKEA. Although IKEA sells a lot of junk, it does sell some really nice stuff, too. And I will definitely be in touch if I make it out to Vermont this year. I need to decide soon. I've been putting off this trip too long. Would love to see you again.

Good to see you back on the keyboard. Your building projects look very professional and the kitten is really cute. Here's hoping Penny bonds with it. You live in an exciting place, wild fires, rattlesnakes and bighorn sheep, a life that draws on your frontier spirit. I envy you your hummingbirds. Wish we had those in the UK.

Maria, I love your home. Try as I may, I can't seem to remember why you moved out west. Was it the cherry drying contract? I have a shortcut on my desktop to Malaga Heights KWAMALAG3 and frequently sneak a peak at your webcam. What a view. All the best to you, my friend. Mike

Two things... I love the shelves you put up in the living room between the windows. and Let me know if you do come to New England. It'd be no big deal for me to drive to VT. I'd love the chance to catch up face to face.

Comment on Helicopter Safe Flight Altitudes by Maria Langer

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 01:24:27 +0000

Wow. You have a serious attitude problem. This blog post was about safe helicopter minimum altitude as set forth by the FAA. The situation I recounted here for readers referred to operations over an airport – in other words, in an environment where the people expect a certain level of noise. It also talked about flying over miles of open desert where no one lives – in other words, where no one would be bothered by noise. Just because you have a chip on your shoulder about helicopter noise doesn't give you the right to make obnoxious comments that have nothing whatsoever to do with the post you commented on. But you probably don't know that because you probably didn't even bother to read the damn post. This blog does not exist as a place to air your grievances about things unrelated to what is written here. So unless you want to apologize and join the discussion more civilly with a comment related to what I or others have written here, don't bother coming back. I have zero tolerance for obnoxious trolls and you certainly seem to be one.

Comment on Fraudulent Credit Card Charges at Tim Hortons in Canada by Jeff Hodgson

I live in Vermont. Just had 2 fraudulent charges at Tim Horton on my Master Card debit card yesterday both for $95. Bizarre. How does this happen? Land why Tim Hortons?
