Chatty Charley thread for the week of April 14th 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Paid my taxes

Paid my taxes, OUCH! I could have bought 3 Nuvi 660s with that money. On a lighter note, at least I don't own a snow shovel. laugh out loud

Springtime in the Rockies Baby

80s on Monday & Tuesday, 3 to 4ish inches of snow on Wednesday and 60ish on Thursday. That's Springtime in the Rockies Baby. Love it or leave it.

do you ever take your nuvi with you on the ferry to see how it works, possibly showing the land masses around Puget Sound??

Always, and it works great.

The only change I have to make is the vehicle icon. I use a blue arrow, which is difficult to see against the blue water. This weekend, I used the Black Pearl.

We don't have too many ferries here, but we do have alot of fairies here (but that is a different thread). But my daughter and I took one and it was really neat. The reason (from a GPSr stand point) that it was neat, cause it showed the path of how the ferry was going to go. It was pretty dang close too.

Taxonomy

How did i find this. Really strange.

A definition of taxonomy is: orderly classification of plants and animals according to their presumed natural relationships

Maybe that's a hint. smile Are we the animals???

Edit:
Each number after the term/ is a category. Right now there are 55. Each Category is reversed sorted by date/time. cool

I was hoping that Miss Poi

I was hoping that Miss Poi would answer and let us know if this is something new that they are going to use or if I just happened onto it. I like the format of it.
Dont know. maybe she will clue us in.

I didn't feel anything that morning here in Chicago. Then again, I could probably sleep through a 747 taking off in the next room. That's how deeply I sleep smile

Just back from the Columbia Gorge

A very nice, long weekend. We missed seeing the Mount St. Helens hidden behind the cloud, and the access was blocked by trees downed by snow. Other than that, we had a fun weekend.

Now, Monday again tomorrow....

My son tells me Mill Creek, just north of Seattle, had over 4 inches of the white stuff on Friday and Saturday. I'll stick to the 80 degrees here in Houston.
