    Zorbas wearing pants! o:)
    We very seldom wear skirts in a dance class - unless we're actually doing a skirt dance or a dress rehearsal. Skirts like we wear can be very hot (especially in *that* class!), and the instructor cannot see much of what the student is doing - we joke that a skirt can hide a multitude of evils...

    Made out like a bandit last nite at the Belly Dance performance. Bought a pair of "Harem Pants" for $5, scored a set of earrings for $10, then was given a nice sparkly finger ring and a veil for free! Nice veil too!

    That is an amazing view!!!

    Are you allowed to land those things wherever you want?  I had one land in my field with my horses years back.  My horses freaked out and one almost went through a fence.  I came close to opening up on them with a shotgun…

    "Are you allowed to land those things wherever you want?" I am not the pilot just the flying crewman. However I will say no. Private property rights are highly respected and maps are carried showing go, no go zones by the pilots I fly with. There may be emergencies such as unfavorable winds or terrain that may force a pilot to land without permission but that is avoided as much as possible.

    Is this picture on the Nevada side?
    Looks like that may be just past Gardnerville on the 395.

    The problem with owning an acre with 20 something trees?

    Five, six, pick up sticks..... not fun at all.

    Three wheelbarrows full.

    Same when neighbors have trees plus pine cones and bark from dead trees.

    I have about 14 large mature Pin Oak trees in my front yard. It’s not unusual for me to have to use my 5x8 trailer 2-4 times/yr to pick up sticks before I can mow. It took 2 loads this Spring. 

    I don’t think I have ever, in 25 yrs, been able to mow without picking up a few sticks.

    Am I the only one whose font color for threads has changed to blue?

    Categories are still black. 
  • sakodudesakodude Senior Member Posts: 4,642 Senior Member
    Mine did on my phone, still black on my laptop.
  • RugerFanRugerFan Senior Member Posts: 2,729 Senior Member
    Good to know I’m not the only one. Figured I had somehow changed a setting on my phone 
  • Wambli SkaWambli Ska Posts: 3,749 Senior Member
    Mine are blue in my iPhone, iPad and my Mac.

    I run a dark mode addon on my browser, so most text is white. But the above mentioned elements are still blue, and it looks REALLY nice!

    Well I see this thread is back. On April 16th (one month since I was the last to post) I was going to declare myself the winner but decided not to. And yep things turned blue. Wondered what the heck I might have done.

    I think I should get the brick. 
    Months ago before the ammo squeeze and the price hike got really going I bought the last brick on the shelf at BP CCI standard velocity 40 grain lead. My absolute favorite MKII fodder. Now it has vanished!  I’ve taken the house apart looking and it ain’t here!  This is a true loss I don’t it can be replaced at this time.
