It's the wee hours now and there is a good drop of 12 yr old Jameson coursing through my system .

All because tonight the new bar was inaugurated.

Five on stools and me as barman .

Candles and a little soft music .

It feels really good when something like this comes together in a mellow way.

 

I wish I could entertain yall here as I know that we could have a very good session

 

 

Good night and may the road rise before you . :beer: :beer: :beer:

Today was a mixed day of sadness and joy. Sadness because a good neighbors daughter was buried. She was run over by a big eight-wheeler while cycling on her way to work at the beginning of the week

If the two "coats" are males, chances are they've just found a girlfriend down the road. They'll be back when they're done courting. I have a couple males (Whitey and Big Guy) who come here to eat on

This I've just got to relate :- Greycoat unsurprisingly really likes chicken . This morning I was down the other end of the garden laying a random stone footpath when I heard an unusual noise . Lookin

Another option for old CPU's, RAM, Mobo's, and other printed circuit boards.

 

Remove all ports which stick up (not ram or pci sockets, the ones for USB, ethernet, onboard video and such) and ship them to Ken (HeliOS) at Reglue for recycling. They have a deal with a local electronics recycler that pays them quite well for these items. And the recycler actually does harvest all the metals for reuse. They get money for the metal cases also, but not enough to justify shipping.

 

Very cool!! I have a few dead motherboards that I could send if I had the money...

 

Sounds great Capt., have one for me :thumbup:

Today a good friend of 35yrs was buried . He was 71 .He was a good man in every way.

I am much more upset about this event than I thought possible.

I will miss his good humour and country wisdom.

But most of all I will miss seeing him on his old bicycle pedaling down the little road with a bag of grain on the handlebars, for sheep in an outlying field .

With the early summer sun creating a long silhouette on the road behind him.

:luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck:

The curse the long-lived must bear is the loss of everything and everyone they've ever loved. Longevity can be a lonely thing sometimes. I'm sorry to hear about your old friend's demise, Cap'n. We're all gonna' follow him eventually. Take heart, though. You woke up breathing that fine fall air this morning. With any luck, you'll continue to do so for many a year to come.

 

An old favorite of mine...

 

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Sorry for your loss Cap'n.

We all have to go, but it's never pleasant for those left behind.

 

That Emperor was a smarty, Eric.

The loss of an awesome friend is one of the hardest things to lose.

 

My heartfelt condolences on your loss Capt.Crow.

 

 

Here's to good Irish friends

Never above you

Never below you

May the Irish hills caress you.

May her lakes and rivers bless you.

May the luck of the Irish enfold you.

May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

The first part of my life I moved around a lot . So there was no loss of close friends . Now since I have settled in a rural area for so long I Got to know all the indigenous folk around me . There have been passing's of friends before ,but none hit me as hard as this .

I know that the seasons change and new growth follows decay . But the naturals are becoming "very thin on the ground"

 

Thank you for your kindness .It does ease things a little ,even at so far a remove .

Thank you all

Hopefully, one day when you're gone from this place, there will be those left behind to mourn your absence and remember you fondly. That's about all we can ask for in this life, I guess... to be remembered fondly.

Even if you don't have any friends or war stories to tell, an analgesic occasionally hits the spot. Don't make a habit of those lone analgesic episodes, though. That could be problematic.

I'm late on tonight .We had a good session

 

What I like most of all is my visitors get mellow and tell all the little secrets .

 

I never realized how much fun there is in running a private bar .

 

The returns on the stocks far outweigh the costs .

 

Hoping to get visitors from Japan soon . Of course all are welcome .

 

All tabs are paid in good company and interesting conversation .

ON a sober note. Since I moved out here to the "boonies" 55 people that I have known over the last 30yrs have passed on. Today I noticed my favorite bank employee looked a bit down . Her drinking Buddie of many years . Took the midnight express. Three days ago.. Between us we have known at least five who have taken the same train since the bank collapse .

 

There are a lot of cruel hasslers out there . Gird up your lions.

Cap'n... all's well as long as everyone you know keeps beating you to the grave. ;)

 

Reminds me of a motto that all my friends and family know I live by,

 

"I'll bury all yall's asses." ;)

Today on a lighter note I took the old smokey about 20miles up country to my favourite wood-yard stacked enough plywood, ship-lap siding and 2x1 pao on the roof to more than finish off my new loft . I find I have to more and more immerse myself in projects. just to keep sane and not get down over others misfortunes.

 

What do you guys do.

What do you guys do.

 

I smoke a lot of pot. HA! Just kidding. No, really. I'm just kidding. I haven't touched that stuff since 1985. I haven't even had an alcoholic beverage since about 2007. I haven't smoked a cigarette in 7 years. I do still cuss quite a bit, though.

 

Umm... what do I do to maintain my sanity? Let's see... I ride my bike. I walk the neighborhood. I listen to music. I read. I spend time with my kitties. I tinker around in my workshop.

 

That's about it for me.

Yes I remember your bike rebuild . It's good for the soul a nice bike ride. All that fresh air and exercise gives one a good high .

 

I read myself to sleep every night . At the moment it's *Man: His first million years * Ashley Montagu 1962 ed. A good insight to anthropology. I am a nerd eh!

King/Straub ... another great book with that combo is the precursor to this book, Talisman!

 

Another great one was under King's pseudonym Richard Bachman and called Thinner!

 

I have them both ... now I have to get the followup, Black House!

 

Firestarter and so many others of King's work I have read and own ... many in paperback, but even more in hardcover. I have read them all except for the most recent ones.

 

I 'read' the Dark Tower Series of books in audio CD format while traveling for my business. I got them from the Library. I 'couldn't put them down' as it were.

 

Stephen King is amazingly gifted and imaginative writer. Scarily imaginative, but very gifted.

 

I also have Dark Tower Series in dead tree format as well.
