    Well, I'm not sure quite which emoji that would be?? Seems like would be the right one.

    It was :spam: actually, if you look at the emoji list it is there but it is listed as text instead of an icon.

    It seems you have the same problem on the coding context thread where it inserted -insert facepalm- instead of the emoji.

    When I fall out of touch with somebody it means I can't remember where I buried it.

    Re: Post Race!

    I have a raised bed garden that managed to flood. It did this by having such a high clay content that the drain holes were blocked. This let the muck go somewhat anoxic. I've lately been turning that, and mixing in some material to break up the clay....but that muck sure does smell bad. Anoxic muck tends to smell bad.

    I went visit my grandfather's house, this is the first time since before Laura. I went out to the swampy area where I like to hunt and couldn't recognize it, but sure could smell it.

    Wet earth just smells weird.

    You swamp dwellers are a bit strange. Wherever I have lived, swampy ground was, by definition, wet. How would a swampy area NOT smell wet? How wet would a swampy area smell?

    I just ate a lunch that was so spicy that I had to drink various things and eat almost an entire head of iceberg lettuce to cool my mouth down.

    Re: Post Race!

    Bought two cords of wood from an urban forester, so I could get hardwood (there's darn little of it out here).

    I have a space that I can stack almost exactly two cord. Last year, two cord didn't quite fill it, which was fine. The year before that, two cord filled it plus just a bit, which probably means that I got exactly two cords.

    This time....by the time I had filled the space, I had moved a bit over HALF the wood, and I was getting a bit tired. I kept going until well after sunset, though, and got it all moved, though I haven't finished cleaning up the yard debris that remains. I estimate that my "two cords" was right around three. I had been intending not to use much this year, but now I have so much that I have to work through that excess just to get it out of the yard. Yeesh.

    I'm not complaining too much about getting more than I paid for. My legs and back are complaining, my hands are complaining a bit, but the majority of me isn't complaining, so those parts that are, are being voted down. Still, I do wonder how this place figures out cords of wood? I suspect they just straight up guess, or base it on what looks right in the trailer. Maybe it's different people different years?

    Re: Post Race!

    Just tried a bit of raking to get up the detritus from all that wood. It makes excellent kindling, as it is all wood chips with a bit of bark mixed in. I filled three barrels plus a wheelbarrow. That's enough kindling for two years....and I then filled my trash bin, and there is still some left over. That was a LOT of wood.

    it is interesting that you use the word "cord" in the US for a volume of wood. This word comes from the french word "corde" which mean rope. In the past they were doing the measure of wood volume with a rope. It is funny because you have a translation for the word and could use the English term. It is like dday9 that use the word parrain instead of godfather.

    by the way, in France a cord is about 3 m3, sometimes a bit more depending of the area of the country. Sometimes, they give you a bit more in volume if the logs are large as they are more empty space.

    In France, people use a lot of English words but just because it is hip or cool and half of them don't even know the real meaning of the words they use.

    Keep the barks, it is very good to start the fire.

    My old boss used to keep a few D10 dice on his desk for when the salesmen came to ask him questions about how many zeroes we should add to the price of the crap we used to sell.

    He thought that was a truly hilarious concept and used to tell everyone he could about it. The funniest thing is that he's still working there and I'm not. This makes me laugh and laugh.

    And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh.

    Ah ahahaaa. Yes it is actually rather brilliant.

    Oh how I laughed though. How time gets away from us eh?

    No, I never wonder. I LOATHE my ISP, as does most everybody who uses them. The only reason I stick with them is that the other alternative is one of the most detested companies in the country.
