Libre Boot X-200 

Good Morning, ,

Today is Saturday, February 7

We got a Chinook. Snow is evaporating at a rate of 
about an inch per hour, and heading towards Chicago.

I checked the calendar for the moon position. Not good
for hanging quilts and bedding and winter jackets out
on the line. Feb 14 - 17 will be ideal for that.

The "over" and "under" positions of the moon are not some
kind of superstition, but refer to where the moon travels,
wether it is a high or a low trajectory.
Feb 14 will also be ideal for cleaning windows, bringing 
firewood inside or under a roof.

If you are far enough South to do any planting, Feb 14 is
good for stuff, that you want to grow up and that you 
harvest above ground parts. Good for salad, bad for potatoes. 

February 27 is good for below ground crops like potatoes,
radishes, carrots.

If you are interested in those moon positions, I will 
mention them when they occur.

Have FUN!

Without skipping a beat she said, "It's Presidents Day!" She's smart, so I asked her, "What does Presidents Day mean?" I waited for something about Obama, Bush or Clinton, etc. She replied, "Presidents Day is when the President steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow, we have another year of Bull Shit."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tiffany Lovejoy 28, Akron, Ohio Left Baby In Frigid Car To Enter Sex Store A woman in Waterbury, Connecticut, is behind bars after police discovered her two-week-old baby in a freezing car clad only in a onesie. The car was parked outside of the VIP -- short for Very Intimate Pleasures -- an adult novelties store in Southington. Lindsay Hoffmann, 26, entered the store Wednesday night with her infant and with Marquette Riggsbee, 54 and her infant. Store employees turned them away, however, because children weren't allowed inside, the Associated Press reports. Hoffmann and Riggsbee returned a short time later without the newborn. Employees raced outside and immediately called police when they saw the child alone in the vehicle in 29-degree weather. VIP District Manager Tina Marchese told WFSB TV she was shocked at how cavalier Hoffmann and Riggsbee were towards the child. She said they continued to peruse the store after being told the police were coming. "[The baby] was not dressed for winter. He was just in a normal onesie, no hat, hands exposed," Marchese said. "It really affected us because we are all mothers so it was a really sad thing for the baby." The baby boy was taken to a hospital to be evaluated. Although the child's hands and feet were very cold, his body temperature was OK, NBC Connecticut reports. Hoffmann and Riggsbee were charged with risk of injury to a minor and leaving a child unsupervised. They are each held on $25,000 bond pending a court appearance on Thursday. Apparently there is no known father, so the baby is now in the hands of the State's Department of Children and Families, according to Both suspects have previous criminal records. Hoffman was convicted of prostitution in 2013 and Riggsbee was convicted of resisting arrest the same year. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Enna Re: LibreBoot X200 Dear Webby, What's the story about the Libre boot X200? Techies are enthusiastic about it, especially the Penguins (Linux fanatics), but magazine writers badmouth it quite fiercely. To me it would seem like a good deal, especially the part about totally free software all the way down to the BIOS. What is your opinion? Enna Dear Enna Keep in mind that those magazine writers are used to getting the next season's most powerful game machines and software for bribes, ahem for testing, and are encouraged by their advertising department, to promote the stuff that brings in a few Million bucks in ad money. You have to take them with a grain of salt. They would never promote or have a kind word about software, that does not buy ads in their magazine. The Libre Boot X200 is a refurbished ThinkPad X200 from 2008 with a current WiFi card. Naturally, magazine writers who are currently playing on 2016 Windoze 10 machines with 20 MB RAM will turn their noses up at a 2008 Thinkpad, without ever trying it. The Libre Boot X200 is not handicapped with Windows 10. It runs an optimized, factory installed Trisquel Linux, and probably runs circles around any 2016 Windows 10 machine. All the software installed on it is free, for you, not just for magazine writers, who have never in their life paid for any software. All the office and graphics and music software is pre-installed, and totally free, forever. Not just a free trial period. Free forever. They even went way beyond office and graphics software, right down to the BIOS. In my opinion, that is a bit overkill. Sure, a few, very few, fanatics will want to edit the BIOS, but the great majority won't give a hoot about that. However, should the need arise a few years down the road, to do some security tweak on the BIOS, you can. The biggest appeals are it's speed, and the free forever software. If you have 10 or 100 or 1000 office machines, not having to pay $500 a piece for Microsoft Office and whatever for periodic updates, that can make a huge difference. Just not having to buy Office alone will pay for the whole machine! Windows or Linux is not really an important concern. Employees are paid to work in spreadsheets or word processors or graphics, not to waste time messing with the operating system. Switching from XP or W7 to Linux is no bigger step than switching to W8 or W10. The Libre Boot X200 sells for about $450. If you want to see the specs or order one, go to Libre Boot X200 Have FUN!

When you dry clothes, pop this washcloth in with the load. It can be reused a couple dozen times, then repeat the procedure. A bottle of liquid softener will last almost forever! Just to add to my post shown here from June 2004, I am still using from the same bottle of fabric softener that I was using at that time. It is a 200 ounce bottle of Snuggle that I bought at Sam's in Sept of 2003. I dilute it with equal parts of water, and do about 30 loads before I have to resoak my cloth. By Harlean from Arkansas ______________________________________________________ A farmer stood leaning on a fence at the edge of his property. He watched as a red sports car came over the top of a hill and followed the road up to the spot where he stood. The driver pulled over to the side of the road and called out to the farmer. "Do you know how I can get to Route 91?" the driver asked. The farmer thought for a few seconds. Then he said, "Nope." "Do you know where the nearest turnpike entrance is?" the driver asked. "Nope." "How about the town of Hadley. Do you know which direction it is from here?" "Nope." Exasperated, the driver raced his engine. "You don't know very much, do you?" he said. "Nope," the farmer replied. "But I don't have to. I don't get lost in these parts of the prairie."
