I found them [In reply to] Can't Post

online at Staples, although they probably have them in the store also: they're the Westcott KleenEarth 7" straight handle scissors. Decent all-purpose ones!

Just for you, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm going to petition the state for a Daylight Savings Day, coinciding with your birthday. Let the planning commence.

I LOVE my Indy TORnsibs. [In reply to] Can't Post

You know, there is, every year, a day upon which I begin to feel "Fall". Today is that day. It used to almost always coincide with the coming of Bilbo and Frodo's birthday in September, but it's getting earlier and earlier. I don't know what brings it on or signals it, possibly the State Fair, or the Perseids or the drop in temperature we've had. Something--I don't know. But I'm ready for "God's time", as I've heard it called, to be back. You know I never fiddle with the clocks to accommodate the rest of the state.

Then you may have heard [In reply to] Can't Post

the news this week that autumn may be largely devoid of its usual color due to the drought. Brown County will probably not be worth the trip this year. I am ready for a change in seasons; this summer has been brutally hot. I hope we get a foot of snow by Thanksgiving.

Maybe it was the inordinate drop in temperature. It has felt like fall the past few evenings. Smile

There was a poll in The Pollantir [In reply to] Can't Post

Way back in 2008, about this very subject. Thought you'd like to see it, there was some very interesting stuff in it. Smile You can find it here.

What's strange is that [In reply to] Can't Post

the various exams with 30 examinees in each varies. Usually there's a 10% leftie on average. Then I'll have a group that jumps to nearly 20%!! Same with guy-to-gal ratio. Most groups are female dominant, the suddenly there's almost a 50-50 proportion! It's fun to watch.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Yeah, I figured that would be the case. [In reply to] Can't Post

We've had some good rains here this week and last week, but I'm a-thinking it's already too late for us to still get beautiful color.

Haven't been to Brown County in years.

that's about 30 minutes [In reply to] Can't Post

(20 miles) from my house. The area is more built up than the photos imply.

Unfortunately a number of people try to get free rides on the freight trains and wind up with amputations or worse. Glad your brother's on the job.

From the tools aisle, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm still waiting for the lefty hammer. It should help minimize the number of times I smash an imprint into the drywall while trying to hang a picture.Laugh

New Bilbo is a lefty... [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I know Martin Freeman is a lefty... although if he wants to go all method-y he will pretend to do everything right handed (Ian Holm is right handed and wrote and such in LOTR) but you could always keep an eye out!
