Chit Chat Thread for the week of September 08, 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.

down goes Brady ...

wow ... the AFC landscape really changed with one play, huh?

going into last night I thought the door was wide open for Indy, but they didn't look so good!

who's going to take the AFC now??

First day

of the rest of the season without Tom Brady on the field. Hopefuly he will be back in 2009. We still will cheer our Pat's on. Go Pats!

We've dodged 3

TS Fay was a soaker here with 65 mph gusts, TS Hanna was a non-event here and Ike is way South of us and looks like a non-event for our location.

Hope it weakens VERY significantly over Cuba and doesn't regenerate too much. Watch out Galveston & Houston !

HANG IN THERE !!!

LET'S GO METS !!!

Really, enough of hurricanes.

I can't believe it, one after another.

It came and left...

Here in the NYC area we were bracing for some high winds and a few inches of rain. The forecast was for the remnants of the tropical storm to hit us late on Friday, all through Saturday- but Sunday was supposed to be as if nothing happened the day before.

We got some gusts here on the South Shore- just 2 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and quite a bit or rain- but I doubt we got the amount anticipated.

Sunday though was amazing. Not a cloud in the sky, barely a breeze and amazing sunny and warm weather. We spent 7 hours at a local park for a previously scheduled picnic. True to the meteorologists' word, Sunday did feel as if Saturday's weather had never happened (except for some telltale puddles and some fallen branches).

What a way to start a week!

2 things

2 things that will foul up a good chat room are
discussing Religion & Politics.
Unless here you are using your POIs to get to a church or to find your way to the polls, where you can state your opinion on the ballot.

Nice site. I also use www.wunderground.com (Weather Underground).

My step daughter is heading back to Key West after evacuating this weekend. She went to Orlando and rode roller-coasters. Ike missed her completely and may hit us in the Dallas area as a Tropical storm this weekend, or miss us completely. Who knows?

Not wanting to wish a hurricane on anyone but with Baton Rouge still on this date trying to get back to normal from Gustav I'm hoping it either dies (which is not likely) or goes somewhere else. Good luck to everone it Ike's path!!!!

That's because we've never adopted the base-10 measurements. It would've made too much sense. mrgreen

Let's see. 14 3/8 inches to a foot, 148 5/16 square inch to a square foot, and one-pound-mass times 36.875 foot-per-second-square is one-pound-force. Or something like that. razz

And while we're on the engineering subject, the only thing I remember from my thermo class is the three laws.

1. You can't win.

2. You can't break even.

3. You can't quit.

School is back in and the colds and flu have already started

You can tell that school is back in when the illnesses start passing their way through the family.

I have been down a bit over the last few days with the flu so if you have stuff in the content bin, I apologize for not getting it published yet.

I will be cleaning files in the morning.

School and flu

Do take care of yourself, Miss POI.
