    45 degrees and rising.... time to throw down a thick layer of rock salt on bare road at 20 mph in a 55 with no chance of passing for fucken’ miles.

    That right lane is the passing lane, isn't it?

    nope, just the widest shoulders possible.... anyplace else and it would be a lovely 4 lane highway. would cut my commute significantly if it were, but it ain’t.



    and them dotted lines is just a cruel joke. there is never a point in time when there is a break in traffic long enough for you to even think about passing something as slow as a fucking snowplow.

    If it makes you feel better, there is no evidence that increasing the number of lanes on a road does anything to help traffic congestion long-term. It just encourages more people to drive on it and you end up in the same place you are now, just with twice the idiots to deal with.

    Just heard from our landlord that sheís selling our house less than six months after we moved in. So we either get to find a new place to live (again) or roll the rice with whatever wannabe slum lord buys the place.

    I’m at a training today for work (teacher) with about 100 others in a big hotel conference room. I check in and the lady points out the coffee area then says, “There is a bucket of ‘fidgets’ and ‘mindful coloring sheets’ with crayons at each table.”

    Did I miss something? When did adults need coloring sheets and fidgets to get through the day? Are the cell phones and laptops not enough of a distraction?

    "mindful coloring sheets" is an oxymoron.

    I'm annoyed because it's snowing. Not predicted and not even showing up on radar as it's falling. I have my skinny bike and was going to build trail.

    Having to listen to unsupervised ski club kids scream at the top of their lungs for an entire (slow) lift ride. Somebody get these little shits off my lawn!

    I work out in a little fitness center and indoor track above the rec center's basketball/pickleball/everything else court. Around midday they bring in the preschoolers, put them on little plastic trikes and in little plastic cars, give them a few balls, and let them scream, throw things at each other, and crash into each other--pretty much a demolition derby. The teachers just stand back and watch. It's loud but very very entertaining. How often do adults get to feel such unbridled joy?

    Why is it that smoke alarms always start chirping while you're trying to sleep?

    Dude, jays are the frisbee pow fun dogs of the Wild Kingdom!

    They are corvids, so they are wicked smart, and learn their names in a few minutes.
    They stash as much as they eat, and can remember hundreds of stash spots [they plant forests in their more forgetful moments].
    They mate for life, and look out for each other. And like camp robbers [aka gray jays], one of the young from the previous year will stay with their parents and help raise next year's chicks.
    They catch peanuts better than dogs! No joke, sometimes they'd rather catch peanuts than pick them up out of a dish. And they like whole roasted unsalted peanuts from Costco better than anything else in the world! Jaybird gold!

    They are very friendly and downright loving when they know you. Sassy and Big beak introduced me to their brood, one at a time. As in: Hop down off the deck rail on to my knee and made their little bobs. They're all grown up now with their forehead markings and their rad hair, and they're wonderful polite little ladies and gentlemen. A black-capped chickadee makes more shit in half hour than my jaybirds have left on my deck in a year.

    Eastern jays are very close to Steller's jays. In fact, they cross a language barrier to interbreed often where ranges overlap...





    Some vid of a sharpie doing it's thing with a magpie for scale...The feeder out in the open like that just creates a kill zone for these sparrow hawks. Accipiter hawks like the sharpie or Cooper's hawk make their living in the woods. Stealth and ambush. That feeder in this vid is making it good enough for that hawk to leave his normal habitat and risk death by buteo hawks, goshawks, falcons, and owls to hunt in the open...

    You've given me one more reason to hate Stellar jays--it's hard to like a bird that's smarter than me.

    And BTW, would your hawk take care of my pigeon problem? If so, please send.

    Used kleenex left on a bench in the Alpine Meadows lobby. Who the fuck wants to pick up someone's used kleenex.

    *skiers and snowboarders. But I'm still trying to cope with the preferred pronoun thing; I can't deal with the skier/snowboarder thing so when I say skier I mean both. If that offends you, good.

    Maybe it fell out of someone's pocket when they were taking their gloves out?

    I have to admire someone who sees the good in everyone.
    I wonder if it was the same person who left 4 or 5 candy wrappers on the floor at the same spot.
