Squirrel with peanuts

tcr! · Aug 22, 2018 at 7:28 am

Notch the Squirrel 1 Notch the Squirrel 2

This is Notch the squirrel. She comes most days for peanuts. It’s not my best photowork but I’d only had one cup of coffee.

Hope your days are filled with coffee and peanuts, too!! 🥜☕️

What are sweet dreams made of?

tcr! · Aug 21, 2018 at 12:45 pm

tism posted a link on his FB timeline earlier today, that Marilyn Manson had collapsed last night on stage while in Houston. He was performing their cover of Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics. This reminded me of a conversation that Sara and I had not long ago.

What are sweet dreams made of ?? What are “these” ??

I vote waffles. Sweet dreams are definitely made of waffles.

I didn’t spend a lot of time on it but I think you’re right.

So I put on some 80s because I was tired of the BBC and the depressing state of their world news broadcast.

On the second song Alexa spins up Dude (Looks Like a Lady) by Aerosmith.

Every time I hear that song I imagine Steven Tyler sneaking onto the set of The Fellowship of the Ring set. And then Liv Tyler shouting, “Dad, get you and your scarf-laden mic stand the fuck outta here!”

That’s fine, just leave the mic stand at home.

Barnum’s Animals Crackers out of the cages

tcr! · Aug 21, 2018 at 8:24 am

Barnum's Animals Crackers behind bars

I’m working at home and have NPR in the background. They’re going on with the typical things that make our world headlines… Trump, sanctions, the EU, Russian hackers, Iran, blah blah blah.

I have a look at Google News to make sure nobody’s blown anybody else up since I last plugged into the Internet. I see that the animal crackers have finally been set free. Finally some news I can get excited about.

Animal crackers’ animals “freed” as boxes get new look

After more than a century behind bars, the beasts on boxes of animal crackers are roaming free.

Mondelez International, the parent company of Nabisco, has redesigned the packaging of its Barnum’s Animals crackers after relenting to pressure from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

PETA, which has been protesting the use of animals in circuses for more than 30 years, wrote a letter to Mondelez in the spring of 2016 calling for a redesign.

“Given the egregious cruelty inherent in circuses that use animals and the public’s swelling opposition to the exploitation of animals used for entertainment, we urge Nabisco to update its packaging in order to show animals who are free to roam in their natural habitats,” PETA said in its letter.

Barnum's Animals Crackers freed

PS- Neither picture is mine.

Heard recently, “if I go on a vegan diet, can I still eat animal crackers?”

I was vaguely confused all the way to the last line: “Canadian boxes already had a different design and aren’t affected.” 🤣

Blue berry pie favorite. Quit ordering it at the Canteen because filling is some kind jell with blue berries in it.

It’s probably high fructose corn syrup.

Writing a valid, functional, and strict MySQL regular expression for latitudes and longitudes is much harder than I thought it would be. Note that I said “MySQL” because they have their own regex engine apparently.

I hope you only have to do it once; look at all of the different versions they had to implement for GNWT!

What is this devil worship?

Government + committee + engineers = devil. Actually it works pretty well. https://www.maps.geomatics.gov.nt.ca/HTML5Viewer_Prod/index.html?viewer=ATLAS

Ah nice! I see that you can search for parcels.

keamoose keamoose · Aug 20, 2018 at 6:43 pm

You can search for more or less anything if you have the right permissions on your login. Like, the property assessment guys can search by the names of homeowners. I can’t imagine what the database must look like. I mostly use it for air photos and land tenure (e.g. to see if an area is owned by the territorial government or by the municipality). It has some nice features; I always feel appreciative of the programmers when I use it. 😊

Happy rainy Monday afternoon, peeps

Happy rainy Monday afternoon

I was never a big fan of change. I hated it.

But once I got comfortable with the idea, and then started fully expecting it, when change did come along it wasn’t that bad. And in the here and now, most days I look forward to it.

Stagnation leads to a stale life.

Mustang Cobra Jet, 2018 edition

tcr! · Aug 20, 2018 at 1:28 pm

2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet First Look: One Fast Pony - Motor Trend

2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet First Look: One Fast Pony

The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is a turnkey race car—it’s not street legal—and Ford will only make 68 of them to mark the year the original debuted. You have a choice of two colors: Race Red or Oxford White. Price tag: $130,000, not including available anniversary badging and graphics. You can place your order now at a Ford dealership.

Under the hood is a 5.2-liter version of Ford’s 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 with a 3.0-liter fifth-generation Whipple supercharger. It has a three-speed racing transmission.

Ford says the car can exceed 150 mph, which necessitates a parachute on the back. And it claims the car will do the quarter-mile run in just over 8 seconds, which means it has at least 700 horsepower and likely exceeds 1,000 (more specs including horsepower will be revealed later this summer). For perspective: Motor Trend clocked the Tesla Model S P100D’s quarter-mile at 10.5 seconds.

I wasn’t a fan of the white and gold look but’s growing on me. The headlights and grill remind me a little bit of a Cobra, too. Much more than a pony.

Huey or Ron results

Flashback to that time I took a social media poll to see who you guys liked between Huey Lewis and Ron Jeremy.

Looks like no mayo for Huey.

Yeah, Ron Jeremy is all fun and games until you actually meet him.

Oh my gosh. We were with another couple at a club and our friend shook his hand…we turned around and his wife was squirting hand sanitizer all over his hands 😂
