A hello-and-goodbye kind of post

Well, I guess my morning ritual of clicking over here will have to be reworked. :)

Best of luck!

Another short film of the puppies in the garden

Well, I don't have the ambition to download the video file, but the cute little still shot above is good enough for me. So adorable! It looks like the puppy is high-stepping.

Scrap lying on his back

Swallows and Frogs

It's pretty impressive that you managed to catch the swallow from below. Very nice photo.

A weekend away at Sea Ranch

I'm going to go with giraffe. There are a lot of them on the northern California coastline, right?

Barbequing with the rich and famous

Agreed, Dru. Being originally from a middle state of the US (South Dakota), I've been asked if we have running water, if we ride horses to school, etc. Today, on a flight from LA to Seattle, I…

Being single

Blogging while drunk? For shame!

Of course, I can't say I haven't done it. Or made drunken phone calls, or sent drunken emails...but I digress.

But yours? I must say it was quite well…

Cheep cheep, baaaa

Well, now that I think about it...we always painted the number on the lambs as well -- with an extra little mark to indicate if the lamb was a twin or triplet (or, god forbid, quadruplet).

Haven't you across-the-pond-ers heard of ear tags? Sheesh. ;-)

Retro: Adventures on Speedway Boulevard

My question is, what the heck does that sign mean? Walk really fast? Try to walk while creating a circular current around your legs?

I can also confirm that IE 6.0 (SP 1) crashes when I resize the browser window. Firefox 0.8 works like a breeze, however. I'm running Windows 2000.

Retro: Ordering food in America

My diet Sunkist nearly went out my nose. Thanks for the laugh.

Retro: Everyone likes Cox

Actually, it's a common last name where I grew up. There were several Cox', so to speak, in my high school.

Walking on Dartmoor

Looks wonderful, the river especially with so much riparian forest surrounding it.

But, then, you make me jealous as I look out at the snow here.

Snow, at last

Ok, fine, your dog is cute.

(Which is saying a lot, given that I am not what one would call an "animal lover").

Re-designing comment forms

Once again, you've brought up an interesting subject. Reminds me of the calendar topic a while back.

I must say it is nice to get right to writing my comment if my other details are already…

Twenty-one photos

I like the little lamby (suffolk, perhaps?) in the red coat. A black lamb (or one that stays black) is somewhat rare, at least in my experience, so it makes the picture all that much better. :)

Pickled Peppers

I had to read it out loud as fast as I could. You know, just to see if I could.

Anna Riley, wish number one

Our garden and the surrounding fields

Hmmm. I suppose that's why it doesn't look like any rhubarb I've ever seen.

Of course, if I had followed the pictures (even a little) I probably could have figured out that it wasn't rhubarb.

Very vivid and wonderful, Dunstan. What plant is that single bud? Also, I have never seen rhubarb in those colors. Wow.

It's nice to see that stuff is still green in some places. Here,…

I love the 'About' summarizing line: "The goal is to kick ass."

Calendar girl

That's a fine, fine piece of artistry. I wish I had graphical design skills. I mean just a few. I would take even a thimbleful of graphic design talent.

An ASP version of time_since

"That's it, it doesn't matter what timezone they're in - minutes and hours are the same everywhere, so 2 hours ago will be 2 hours ago everywhere."

Sure, that's what rational Mr. Dunstan would…

In typical overanalyzing fashion, I think "so was that two days since the poster's time or two days ago relative to my time." Then, I think, "So was that January 8th or 9th that it was posted? …

Why do authors ruin books?

I like to ruin mystery books (or movies) for myself by overanalyzing. I usually think, "Oh this guy is strangely charming and nice and is positively ripe for being the bad guy." And, sure enough,…

Foggy morning

Beautiful fog photos, Dunstan. Sadly, winter here is mostly too darn cold for fog to be any sort of a factor.

Well, I continue to be impressed by the amount of thought you put into this. I would have probably just axed it ten minutes after posing the question. I tend to be a bit brash…

I can't say I've ever used your calendar. Or mine, now that I think of it...
