    I quit smoking cigarettes about 8 years ago and anytime I even so much as think about doing miniatures it gives me the envies to smoke.

    I just do not have the patience to work with them.

    Then don't do miniatures. Start doing full-size, instead. Takes more paint, but it's easier.

    I finally killed the bug on dday9's posts. It only took hitting it hard with a hammer.

    Of course, I now have a new monitor and there is a new bug.....

    Apparently we had a tropical storm hit last night. It was certainly more windy, but more or less the same amount of rain we’ve been getting.

    Got home...to some crazy high temperatures, with record high temperatures in the forecast....at least it's a dry heat....kind of like being in a convection oven.

    I've just had the first rain in about 6 weeks. Lasted a couple of days. Great! The grass was going brown. All looks lovely again. The sun's out now. The only problem is now that the grass has been watered, I can almost see it grow. Now for the lawnmower. Ahhhhhh...

    Won't be mowing for a good long time, now. Grass doesn't grow much in triple digits....or, at least, it doesn't grow LONG. It DOES grow brown.

    It's crazy how different climates are.

    It hasn't stopped raining here in weeks. At least once per day, most of the time several times per day.

    Re: Post Race!

    I was out in the Seattle area last week. Getting there, it was rainy and cold for days. Not so cold that I was uncomfortable, but cold enough that while I was biking in the rain I felt I couldn't really stop for long without becoming chilled. It was the exertion that was keeping me warm. Following that was a stretch of sunny weather with comfortable, but not hot, temperatures. And now Seattle is setting heat records. I'm glad I got the weather I got, rather than this weather. It would be sunny, but it would be pretty miserable, too.

    This surprised me, https://currently.att.yahoo.com/spor...200615558.html

    Not sure what the gallons represent. Big difference between a gallon of beer and a gallon of whisky. The range from least to most was wider than I would have guessed.

    Doesn’t surprise me so much. Bible Belt states are lower, more remote places score higher. Only real outlier is D.C., then again, is that really a surprise?

    Bible belt never crossed my mind. Makes sense. We're a little isolated from it here in Ca.

    I'll never forget the first time I drove to Arkansas when I was old enough to (legally) drink.

    I was driving up to Missouri to pickup some parts for my Mustang II and we slept somewhere in north/central Arkansas. As soon as I checked into my hotel I asked the guy where the closest bar was and he replied in the most Arkansas drawl I've ever heard: "So you want the booze don't ya? Well you're going to have to drive about a hundred miles that way. -gestured in some direction-. We're a dry county here and so are the others closest to us too."

    Long story short, I pick up beer on my way back before I got out of Missouri and just drank in my room.

    the average in France is 3.1 US gallons (11.7 liters) with some top at 3.36 gallons in some areas (wine area and beer area ).

    Not surprised that UT is at the bottom. If they are looking at alcohol consumption, not just 'beer' consumption, the low alcohol content of UT beers will keep the alcohol consumption down even if the beer consumption is more average.

    Yeah, not just Utah. Oklahoma (at least the county my mom lived in), has a strange system. Up until 9pm basic normal rules, even drive through liquor store but after 9pm, no hard alcohol and only 3.2 beer. So at 8:59 if you buy a Bud it's 5%., at 9:01 the Bud will be 3.2. They look the same, I didn't notice till I happen to notice it on the label. (I think, maybe my brother told me and I saw it on the label the next time). to many Buds, my memory is shot. So, let that be a lesson kids, don't smoke.

    The first most important question is 'Will England win Euro 2020'?

    I'd say yes - but that, of course, is tempting fate. So no prediction until after the game tonight (UK time).

    Anyway, I'm for Denmark of course.
    I was rooting for Switzerland!

    Had Switzerland showed up with more drive you might reverse that position.

    What happens if you reverse a position of neutrality? Are you still in neutral, or have you changed to...well, to something else? You can't choose a direction, because that would just be a change, not a reverse. I think I'd have to choose EVERYBODY to win. I don't think I would have done that.

    Re: Post Race!

    I have a test suite for one dll I have written. It's not just unit tests, but a combination of unit tests and integration tests. The messages that come back when tests fail are usually quite informative, because what's the point if they are not?

    I just ran a set of tests. The first passed. The second returned this message: The user is a fool.

    I LOLed.

    The test was for something so utterly fundamental that if it failed it was only because of me making a simple mistake (in this case, I misread some words and ended up copying and pasting the wrong thing in the right place, such that I ended up attempting to run a test against something that couldn't exist).
