    I have been using Edge on my laptop for a while now, I like it and more recently I have been using the private windows for sites which have a lot of ads or autorun videos, the pages load so much faster using a private window instead of the normal window...

    my Horoscope for today
    Aquarius: Your ability to communicate with animals is heightened -- but not in a make-the-neighbors-nervous sort of way! You're not talking their ears off, you're just making sense of their oddball behavior.

    on Kate's FB we found this:

    I am who I am. I won’t change for anyone, anymore. I am a strong and empowered women.
    with an inappropriate photo.
    We told her she cant put that on FB for many reasons most them due to FB rules and she still is 17 . she told us what she plans after her birthday while she can do it the wisdom of doing it will be with her for the rest of her life. Rikki is the one working with her to find a place for what she wants to say and how she wants to say it.

    The old BB gun range. That's a cow bell hanging there that makes a satisfying ding.
    This is amazingly relaxing and excellent practice.

    Those are also good for taking care of pesky critters that come around and don't keep moving on, like field rats or an aggressive bird that is upsetting the balance...Also good for hunting small game if living off the land and don't want to kill and clean a big deer or wild hog...A bb gun at least won't blow your small game to bits either lol...I'd like to have a nice scope to get that one shot kill so the critter doesn't suffer much...

    Getting back to aggressive birds, there happens to be a couple mocking birds disrupting the afternoon feeding of the rest of the varieties of birds living on my property and believe me there are a lot of bird families around...Not only are these mocking birds pissing off all the birds, they have begun shitting on my car multiple times a day, this never happened before with the other birds, not until these mocking birds moved in...

    A solution is needed....:Whistle::ph8:

    We have a really really strong thunderstorm almost on top of us, I'm stuck in my workshop at the moment, too much lightning cracking everywhere around to go out and run 200 feet to my house, just going to ride the storm out here...

    Yesterday was the first day in a couple of weeks that we received some rain. It was a torrential downpour for an hour or so and then it stopped. The temperature dropped 20 degrees but the humidity skyrocketed.

    This has been one of our wetter summers after having a drier one last year, we have been getting rain about twice a week on average, and with varying storm intensities...July has been hotter than normal, but August is forecast to be cooler than normal, if that pans out it could be a sign of an early winter...

    You can actually see the BB in flight sometimes and about 35' is all you get - you can actually watch the BB 'hook' because that's just a steel tube with no rifling. I got a tin of .177 pellets that seem to fly straighter and have a better chance of killing a squirrel. I only zap them out of necessity. Had one decide to take up residence right outside a window, like 6' away and couldn't be shooed away. Our dog lost her mind.

    Good practice for taking old Marlin m60 to the range, or an m1903 or M1 Garand for that matter. Principles virtually identical.

    Well, if lip ooze has to be on you 'thankful' list I guess outward oozing is best :)

    Yeah I forgot about pellets, they are more accurate I think and have a longer range like you said...I think I'm going go up to Walmart sometime this weekend and see what they got, I want a scope with it too...Yes only out of necessity, maybe taking out one mockingbird will send the other packing it's bags, they've been really disruptive lately, pissing off all the locals, the only ones who seem not bothered by them are the hummingbirds...I have two hummingbird feeders and get over 20 hummingbirds visiting those feeders heavily, with some fights ensuing from some of them running into each other at the feeders lol...One of those feeders are hanging just outside my dining room window near a chair I sit in when I eat at that table so I can see them well...Some like to sit on the feeder perches and drink for up to 20 seconds or more before taking off whilst others just hover there at the feeder dipping their beaks in for a couple quick drinks before flying off...All the birds get quiet and hide whenever the hawks come flying out of the forest and circle the meadow next to my property like they did yesterday...Once the hawks go away the first ones emerge are the meadowlarks, they are the lead birds around here it seems, they keep the crows away and keep the other birds in line lol...

    There are some words that just sound right and you can understand their meaning without much difficulty. “Wanker” is one of those words. It can mean a very annoying person or someone who masturbates.

    Its been a long hot day for me today, I've been out in the yard most of the day, pruning trees, trimming bushes, cutting back the forest plants and trees bordering my property...This really needed to be done, I've been letting everything grow wild since early Spring, every time I mowed the yard I had to keep ducking under the Pecan tree and had briars growing out on one spot from the woods, the Apple tree had poison ivy growing up one side of it that I didn't notice before until recently...After all of that pruning and trimming and clearing all the trimmings away, I mowed the yard and even mowed back the meadow a few feet, its been so humid this week that at 1500 in the afternoon at 90 degrees the grass in the back was still wet...I got lots of sun too, a decent sunburn with plenty of vitamin D so FU coronavirus lol...Came back inside about 1700 and drank the last 3 Stella Artois I had in the refrigerator and relaxed...Just ate some leftover Cajun seasoned Turkey breast on a sandwich of sweet Hawaiian bread, Dijon mustard, Bibb lettuce and Swiss cheese, Yum that was good!...
