    ...a bot of cloud = a swarm of mini drones? 

    90+ again there today as well (though looks like a "big chill" heading your way on Wednesday).

    Still in the 20s here and it will not make it above freezing for the sixth straight day.  Tomorrow looks absolutely ghastly as it will start with freezing rain in the morning then stop for a while before continuing again (just in time for the PM commute) before warming enough to become just plain old rain by late evening.  There is still about 8" - 10" of snow on the ground and most side streets as well as sidewalks are snow/ice packed. 

    I have an evnet to go to tomorrow but cancelling out as by the sound of the forecast, it will be one heck of an icy, slippery, slushy, wet mess. Glad I went to market on Friday and stocked up.

    ...yeah our transit system is running on reduced schedules with a number of routes (some that go by areas where people still have to work today) not operating.  This should be a "real" holiday for everyone instead of just for bankers, government, and schools. 

    However a number of other businesses have been closed due to street conditions from the "Blizzard of '16" last week.  Portland only has a few ploughs which are used mainly to maintain the freeways a few of the main thoroughfares.

    Scorching north wind here, must be 100 or so in the shade but at least wind iz giving flies a enogh hard time to keep them off me. If you can picture this am often typing in the back of a cab & fingers dont so much hit the screen as the screen hits fingers as the cab rises and falls I guess with some kind of freeway tidal swell :)

    Morning. A mob of Rainbow Lorikeets like blobs of red and blue and yellow paint splashed across the green and gold of our old pear tree making for a technicolour start to the day here :)

    Makes me want to see a photo of that scene!

    Dana

    got some photos somewhere, found one anyhow slurping on our pears !

    Pretty birds!

    Dana

    They make a real racket like a hundred squeaky wheels or a thousand fingernails scratching on a blackboard. The pear tree is three or four times bigger than a normal pyrrus communis & I guess from the numbers there is more than one flock of lorikeets hanging around in the canopy altho is dofficult to see right now, they start at the very treetop and eat their way down over a couple of weeks :)

    A great many birds are very pretty in pictures.  Then you experience them in person and they turn into dinosaurs.  Back in a previous century when I was a photographer I had a gig with a guy who trained parrots and the like.  He had a house full of macaws, cockatoos, etc.  My pictures were very pretty but I absolutely loathed being around them.  Noisy, nasty creatures.  Totally turned me off ever having a bird for a pet.  I think the Austrialian Aborigine's word for those little parakeet things is "budgerigar", meaning "good food".  A good thing to do with them if you have millions of them in a harsh and unforgiving land. yes

    Just imagine an Austrailian Thanksgiving feast with a hundred sizzling, golden brown birds the size of small walnuts on a platter, all lovingly stuffed with a bread crumb or two.  And you could use the leg bones as toothpicks afterward. devil

    You could even cover them in chocolate and sell them at the same place where you get "Crunchy Frog" and "Lark's Vomit" chocolates. indecision

    the Laver arena is  three blocks away, the Tennis used to be in the burbs but ot got real big and moved to by the river, is a shame cos the old Kooyong courts are quite pleasant, the new ones are real commercial

    what do you snack on when composing scenes n rendering?

     

  • ChoholeChohole Posts: 30,747

    Celery stalks stuffed with cream cheese and chopped chives,  then cut the celery stalks into bite sized pieces.  

    Trail mix  (you can make your own mixture)   but remember that dried fruits are very heavy on the sugar.

    Pop corn, but forget the sticky toffee sort.

    Nuts and seeds  (sunflower seeds are nice)

  • MystarraMystarra Posts: 31,787

    I see celery more as building material than food.

    Complaint:  This up & down, freeze/thaw weather is hell on the road surfaces but I suspect that when the bus ahead of you disappears it's time to put on the brakes. enlightened 

    And right outside my house is a huge hole getting bigger by the hour.  My windows rattle when a big truck hits it square on. frown  I think I could easily hide a basketball in it now.

    Morning. Sun rising on a darkening sky and scudding overcast caught by the wings of a storm beating on towers and treetops and suddenly befogged elevated freeways :)
