Good morning all:

Holly crap it was cold here last night -21F. We received another two inches of snow last night which brings us to twelve inches. We are suppose to be just as cold tonight. I'm running late today and I am just having my first glass of pop. I am on a steep learning curve with our new house. I had done a smoke test in the house to see the air flow and where I need to make changes. So, with all of the changes I have made over the past four months I have made some good progress, especially in the past few week. Last night the entire house held a constant 80F. Not bad since the last four weeks of cold temps I was having trouble keeping the upstairs at 60F. My wife is happier since I am not bitching and complaining about moving heat upstairs. My Ferguson 35 started pretty hard this a.m.

I have to get a lot of work done in the shop today if I plan on staying on schedule. I have a nice jewelry box that needs to be finished today so Tuesday I can send it on its way to Germany. I scored a nice load of stove coal this past week (one ton) and I am currently burning it. Nice old coal, nice red ash. The owner asked me if the coal was still good to burn. My response was,"Yup!" the fifty years it has spent sitting in his cellar means nothing since it has sat in the ground for the past million years. He wanted to see it burning so I took a nice pic and sent it to him the other day. Freddy, I wish I could have stopped in earlier this morning so I could have taken part of breakfast, maybe next weekend. I hope everyone has a good safe weekend. Don't forget to give your coal stove, stoker, boiler or whatever your burning a hug just to give it some love. A little insurance so it will not break down when you really need it.

Thank Heavens your wife was on the ball. This sounds like a repeat of my first daughter, but as with yours all is well and here we are 23 years later.

Remember, you sleep when she sleeps even it you are not tired. Do it anyway, I think you'll find sleep to be a limited commodity for the next couple of months. Take care, Lisa

You aren't kidding! My son is almost 6 months old and that is how long it's been since I had a full night's sleep. My wife is so exhausted she can hardly function sometimes. Nothing gets you ready for an "active" baby that only sleeps 2-3 hrs at a time.

Gad zooks.... 18" of snow for Ohio & 21 below in NY. Our 2" and 5 above are seeming pretty good!

Big football game tonight. I'm not big on keeping up on sports, but I'm going to take in the game tonight. Go Patriots!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Congrats on all the newborns here today! You fellas have been busy! :lol: Me too ..... but lucky for me I think I killed the little swimmers back in my teen years. :D

I delivered a loaf today. The Subaru to be specific. Owner is happy. My trailer got TRASHED with salt spray from the trip - it's pure white! :mad: Luckily I hosed it down with used motor oil last month, or I don't think there would be anything left of it by springtime ...

We didn't get as cold up here this morning as some of the guys farther south of us did - must be a front moving through. All night it stayed 25° .... and stayed there most of the day ... but started falling fast when the sun set. Down to 20° right now with single digits in the forecast. Harman is at 2 turns out pulling a .05" on the manometer - nice & warm in here at 70° ... which I can guarantee will drop fast as the night goes on. Should be 62° in here by morning.

Yeah everyone in MA is going bonkers because of Tim Tebow's routine on the field. Religion is not big in the culture up here .. surprise, surprise. Some people - even some of my close friends are saying some pretty awful things about Mr. Tebow. I respect the guy, & think it should be a non-story .... but such is society today. Even though I'm a Pat's fan by default, I'm secretly hoping the Bronco's win just to throw it in all the Godless MA's fans faces. :twisted:

Our first one was active. Really hard to get some sleep, he never slept thru the night, and up at 6:00am.

Missed coffee time, I had a job today. Got my coffee right now, with some homemade Peanutbutter cookies to dunk in it.
High temp today was 45F. Not bad, as the sun was out, and helped heat the house. About 25F in the morning.
Not a trace of snow yet.

Good evening. I slept in today and we went out for “brunch,” I hate the word but it was a very late breakfast. I think my wife let the eggs get all on purpose so she could get to eat out today. My evening coffee has Irish cream in it and it is tasty.

Not to nit pick Freddy but two weeks before Christmas was fall or autumn if you prefer. That does not qualify as a winter snow. Winter began on or about 12/21, exact time of day; I don’t know.

Congrats CapeCoaler & qbwebb. qbwebb; there really is a lack of communication in the hospitals just like in any other big business. Even though they are in the people business I think to the people that work there it is just a job. Years ago when my dad passed away, in the hospital, a couple days later his doctor called mom because he was not in for a scheduled appointment. His doctor and appointment were at the same hospital in which he died. 187/98 BP sure don’t seem lake something to panic about after having a baby. Wait a little and look what happened, back to normal; but waiting don’t pay as well as administering treatment. I am not a doctor but I’m just saying…

The cold weather has increased coal consumption, and this year was going so well. I am taking advantage of the cold snap to clean and defrost the freezer. Everything is outside, some in coolers some not, and the freezer is sitting hear melting. I hate this job but it is a job that must be done.

I guess I’ll try and take in some of the football tonight. I have no interest in who makes it this year but the Tebow story is intriguing. SMITTY, the problem with Tebow is that he thinks God is somewhere in the sky but all Massholes know that God is really the Deval, and you will normally find him at Beacon Hill. As unlikely as it seams it would be funny if the Broncos find a way to win.

Keepaeyeonit; if you want to get serious about snow removal you need one of these.


Have a good weekend.

Dont know if this is all true or not but it is called Pams story,,,, Pam’s Story

In a recent email, I read about a woman named Pam, who knows the pain of considering abortion. More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant.

Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.

While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we’ll name him Timothy and we’ll make him a preacher.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam’s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father’s ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam’s son is Tim Tebow.
