    Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning for my area. I'm very happy to stay home and read.

    Saw a guy in the parking lot at Safeway in a TARDIS stocking cap. Called out to him that I like his hat and that he should look at my license plate: DALEKS. He laughed and showed me his TARDIS keychain. Just like my wife's, I told him. And that she has TARDIS on her license plate.

    Always nice to run into a Whovian.

    And speaking of science fiction, SpaceX has successfully launched Falcon Heavy.

    Construction work in Brisbane, Queensland has uncovered 134 year old electrical cables known as "Edison Tubes" http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-0...arthed/9401440 .They were laid down in 1884 and Brisbane was the third city, after New York & London to use them.

    I like that the length of each segment - 20 feet - was determined by what a horse carriage could transport through New York alleyways.

    Even on The Daily Show, he said because there wasn't really any other lead story they could go with yesterday.

    I too am puzzled. I the winter I wear one to keep my scalp warm. In the summer I wear one to keep it from burning.

    It is starting to get warmer here, I have been wearing a knit cap or a toque.

    I was just saying it was getting warmer out and therefore don't need such a heavy hat.

    Sorry that I caused confusion with a silly joke.

    I know guys who wear a cap year 'round. Probably 24-7.

  19. #3139
    No problem, I know people who wear ball caps all the time too.

    One last thing before I nod for while. Turkish garbage collectors saved over 6000 books from being thrown over the years and opened their own library.

    I wear a hat all year round when outside. Of course it is a cricket hat and not a baseball cap. The reason is not actually because of any sporting affiliation, even though I do far prefer cricket to baseball. It is simply because a cricket hat has a wide brim all the way around. In a country with the equal highest rate of skin cancer in the world (tied with NZ) you take all sensible precautions.

    My current cap has no logo on it, my last one was from the gift from NASA that I lost I think at my sisters place. If I just left behind at my high school reunion I would not have ran into old friend and a lot trouble would not have happened.

    I don't wear ball caps too much any more but I do like my fedora...not 24/7 like but enough to be seen in it most days when I'm out and about. If I have to spend much time outside this time of year, though, I'll probably wear a rabbit fur Mad Bomber, a muskrat trooper style, or the closest thing to a ball cap in winter is a shearling-lined Filson "Elmer Fudd" hat.

    I have held a building permit in my hands, and even given it a kiss. Construction of our new house starts on March 9. I would never have thought that spending $600,000 would make so happy!

    I hope the weather improves! I mean, I like snow, but not for building in.

    I'm not worried about the weather. I am, however, worried that taking out a massive loan at the age of 70 is kind of stupid.

    I saw a blurb on Facebook about Ewan Mcgregor's brother, Colin. He was an RAF pilot with the nickname Obi-Two. That's funny, true or not.

    Oh, the other thing that makes me happy. I have a run of winning roll up the rim to win cups from Tim Hortons. I have won 8 free cups of coffee. It just feels good.

    Now if I can get 6 more "win a doughnut", I can get a full dozen.
