    Thank you very much !!! I made it to 48 & just found out that the pipes are delivering water :-( no shower or coffee on a work night ?? Hope everyone is nice & warm ! This old house is really something else ...

    January 24, 2013 at 3:05 pm |

      Are not delivering water :( 2 chicken heaters under house

        Good thing you didn't have any broken pipes. Friends that live in a pre-civil war log house had the same problem when they first moved in. Ultimately they insulated inside the crawl space walls, floors and pipes. They even wrapped a pipe heater cord around the water for those extra cold and windy days.

    Breaking News!
    Season six of the best show on television returns on April 7.
    Which will be some relief given the level of dreck currently filling the airwaves.

    Moderation levels seem to be tuned to high today.

    January 24, 2013 at 10:16 am |
    • Janet Napalitano

      Due to a High level of Flatulence in the DC area...possible cause–Presidential Parade...Moderation levels will remain at Red levels.

      January 24, 2013 at 11:27 am |
      • Sir Biddle

        Plan on levels being at or above red until further notice. This town smells like BS most of the time!

      A wise man once suggested to me that everything in moderation is good – even moderation.

      Did someone say flatulence?

    Good morning! Another chilly day here, its all of 4 degrees right now, woo hoo. I think the next time we might get above freezing isn't until next Tuesday.

    Have a great day!!

      Which next Tuesday ?

      January 24, 2013 at 9:41 am |
      • AleeD®@HDW

        It's the "C U next Tuesday" next Tuesday. That's what that is.

      • Mary Shannon

        I am sooooo hoping that its the one early next week! To be completely honest, though, I'd much rather deal with this cold rather than have 100 degree heat and broken air conditioner.

        The radar is picking up a line of thundershowers which extends from a
        point 9 miles NNE of Secaucus, New Jersey, along a line and 6 miles
        either side of the line to a point 5 miles SSW of Fond Du Lac.

        However, the radar is also picking up a squadron of Russian ICBMs... so I wouldn't
        sweat the thundershowers.

        Aren't you forgetting your first Barney concert?

        January 24, 2013 at 9:39 am |
        • Sir Biddle

          Barney was late-80's and I had a shaved head for Uncle Sam by then. I was more of the Banana Splits crowd as a wee one.

          January 24, 2013 at 10:10 am |
    • AleeD®@Sir Biddle & Your clouded Memory

      Glad you liked it. :)
      Wasn't Barney one of the original members of the Jimi Hendrix Experience? ;)

      January 24, 2013 at 10:08 am |
      • Sir Biddle

        I think they originally title the song Hey Barney, but later changed it to Hey Joe. Didn't have the zing to it that they thought.

        January 24, 2013 at 10:12 am |
        • AleeD®Sir Biddle

          The bass riff in that song is among my top 5 favorites.
