was just asking my brother if he knew how to do that ... he didn’t.   not sure how to adjust for dosage. Maybe take a one-hit bowlful and put that much in each candy or cookie?

Sure would be a lot cheaper to just buy an ounce and make my own food item.  Haven’t researched how to do it ... maybe i will, since i can’t go anywhere for the foreseeable future.

Tea, anyone?

@Tarheel  Haven't really dug into it much but the word I got was Tidal & Roon for streaming.  I think Roon has a 1 year trial for $120.  Bezos has enough $$$.  FWIW.  As I said I'm pretty clueless on it.  With as many albums as I have it's only justified for the one's I don't have.  In a "dunno" mode on it. You can also send me albums anytime just leave a msg when you ask for my thoughts later.  I'll be waiting patiently and promise not to laff too hard when I listen to your vm msg.  😂  You all stay safe now ya here?   :)

Don't know anything about Roon.  Just don't like the idea of contributing to Jay Z on Tidal.  Plus I have Amazon Prime making it affordable.

should be that way.

I went to the lake... Parking lot to capacity and frig people camping. ...and more coming as I was leaving.

so much for "stay home"...  the only reason for the folks to be camping is if they have an infected individual in their house... and especially then, they should stay home. They could be carriers. Not a new concept

does Typhoid Mary ring any bells?

 

I shot the governor an e-mail suggesting he limit numbers of people at recreational facilities. The state parks that you need to pay to get into have a gate and attendants. Our lake doesn't fit that.

rant over.

 

my spring flowers are getting fragrance

 

not that bad, but we're getting there. they need a little more time to develop their full fragrance...

in some circles, skunk is a pleasant odor... Not me.  I have some, that after 3 years of "mellowing" are near almost palatable. It smelled/tasted like a tire fire... Any good? I dunno... Couldn't stand to smoke it.

I think skunk is just the name or term, as in strong smell ? I couldn't see how the real skunk smell could ever pass. Now if it really did smell like skunk I wouldn't blame you. :unsure2:

You can pass a dead skunk on the highway @ 80 MPH with the windows up and still smell it, pretty amazing really.

Listening to a little Keb Mo and drinking some Cabernet. 

 

Talked to my bud bluesboy on the other coast and caught up on the music/equipment news.

 

A beautiful day here pruning some azaleas and box woods and soon to have some fresh Tuna with fried green tomatoes. 

 

Stay safe Gents..........

oh no...

there are some strains that do smell very similar to skunk "perfume". For the most part, tastes better than it smells. Not this tire fire crap.

 

dead skunk in the middle of the road... thought that was Jim Stafford... Nope.. London Wainwright

I drove over one, a fresh one. Did not hit it with the tires. Could still smell it in the car when I went thru the BP checkpoint... 5 miles later and I had the windows open the whole way. My eyes were watering..

  I can tolerate a certain amt of the smell. We had a "pet" skunk living here for several months.Ate and played with the cats. We never had a major [smell] problem with it. You would notice it come home after a hard night. Never discharged here, tho.  I relocated it for fear of rabies. Told wife that if the vet would give it a rabies vaccination, it could stay. The vet wasn't going for it.   Helpful hint when live trapping them. Use the smallest trap they will fit in.If they can't lift their tail, you won't get blasted. Learned that with the first one... I moved several. 4 or 5. Would rather deal with them over 'coons. Had to transplant a few of them , too. Coons can get mean.

Skunk you say?  Had some baby skunks under the mess hall @ Ft. Benning once.  One of the cooks said he was going to take the scent bag outta one of them.  Naturally we didn't believe him.  Had a guy in our barracks who had a habit of just flopping down on his bunk.  We'd taken the springs out of it a few times and got him but a skunk scent bag?  Somehow we alllll happened to be outside one night and the dude went in to flop.  Yup, he was a bit late finding the scent bag partially under one of the metal legs.  Glad I had a room downstairs.  Nasty just nasty.  :)

At the other place, I had one go nuclear under the house. I had to leave .... I had the windows open and was burning incense for a couple weeks.  Amazing how that lingers.

 

Hope to get some listening time today. I don't really think that is going to happen, though. The garage system ain't getting it. The R15Ms are OK, but...not compared to LS.  Wife keeps telling me I can listen to music... And I keep telling her I can't. She thinks listening is barely able to hear it. I am liking to feel the music.

 

 

Have something interesting, but may not pass the religion/politics code of conduct..So I won't

no! not at all

if your wives/gf get jealous...

simply tell them,"If I don't look, it means I've lost interest [in sex]... you wouldn't like that, would you?"

 

Hanging in the doghouse... again. It is my "office".

Lookin' at my R/C helicopters... I wonder if can still fly the things. The ones that I built/modified are like hot rod sports cars. Responsive and fast.  To a certain extent, they are like piloting a boat. There tends to be a lag between command and response, .  You "tell" it to turn and it will get there... but not immediately. You have to lead them. If you don't, that lag I spoke of will end with your toy going SPLAT. The mods I did reduce the lag, not eliminate it. I have one model that is for beginners. You have to constantly need to induce movement. Will hover w/o your hands on the controls. The ones I fixed... you have to command it to stop and hands off hover... not today. Holding it in a hover is tricky.

 

today's music... finished with some Norah Jones and into metal.

 

w/o going into details

a group says we will have to deal with a meteor striking Earth this week.This is not a recent prediction... hundreds of years ago.
