Rains came in the night hammering on our steel roof leaving our outside thermometers hovering just above the freezing mark this morning.  Left me hovering around our house for most of the day.  Never ventured out at all knowing how miserable the damp cold would feel.



Thanks to staying inside most of the day I was able to ‘FINALLY’ make a wee bit of headway into understanding this whole Google Photos/Picasa Web Album schmozzle.  Enough so that I have been able to create a Google Photo album entitled Old Farm Houses, Some Newer Ones, Country Homes, & A Few Derelicts Too.  And I’ve even managed to affix it to my sidebar under the title ‘Photo Albums’.  I have set it up so my latest photos will always appear first saving anyone having to wade though all the photos to the bottom in order to find the albums latest pictures.  I know there is still more head banging ahead in sorting this big Google/Picasa thing out but at least I am encouraged by my wee progress so far.


Here’s a video of an old favorite rivalry among RV Folks when it comes to Motorhomes.  Can’t decide whether to go gas or diesel this short video might help you with your decision.  RV SMACK-DOWN - Diesel vs Gas.DSC_4095

It is a rare day I do not have current photos for my blog but today was one of those days & I had to pull a few photos out of my files.  Pheebs & I will head out in the morning to see if we can scare up some new pics for Wednesday’s post.


GROANER’S CORNER:(( A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.  Four worms were placed into four separate jars.  The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.  At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:  The first worm in alcohol -Dead.  The second worm in cigarette smoke – Dead  Third worm in chocolate syrup –Dead  Fourth worm in good clean soil -Alive.  So the Minister asked the congregation -  What did you learn from this demonstration?  Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said,  'As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'


  1. Yes, today was one of those days best spent inside, Al. Pretty much the same here in Grand Rapids as what you have in Bayfield. Looking forward to some sunnier skies!

  2. Sorry, but your new album didn't work for me. The other albums do work.

    1. I may have forgot to 'make the album public' & will correct that soon as I get to my desktop computer.

  3. Ditto, old farm houses didn't work. The others did.

  4. Ditto here too,
    Njce to spend an inside day occasionally.

  5. Maxine is a very logical thinking girl.

  6. I am still using Picasa photo editor..no problems. I still don't get the big deal..am I missing something? Also very proud of myself..I managed to put a "home video" on my blog using U-tube..Not sure if it was my wizardry (fat chance) or just dumb luck!!
