Chat - 2017
« on: January 01, 2017, 05:41:35 am »
Welcome!  Here's the place for general "Hello, Howyadoin?" chat. 

So... Hello! 

Howyadoin?


Also, we've started a member's map.  Please put your city on it:
I have started an OW people map at http://goo.gl/maps/Z2IsJ.
If you want your town (not address) on the map, message me with the info.
pommystuart.





Wishing you all a
Happy and Healthy New Year
...
with lots of
New Logbooks!

Still waiting... and waiting... and waiting...   :-\

May as well go to bed, a watched New Year never comes.  ;D

That's the trouble with Pacific Standard Time, everything takes a very long time getting here. Mind you, it could be worse. I could be living Akta, Alaska, just 5 degrees and 48 seconds east of the date line far out near the western edge of the Aleutian Islands.

That's how I feel about the planet, hanibal.  :'( 

Sat wearing two jumpers, thick socks, and thinking of making a pair of finger-less gloves for sessions on the computer  :)

Check out your neighborhood boat chandlery. They HAVE fingerless gloves for sailors. (You need the fingertips for fine tuning, etc.0 I have 2 pair - one by GILL & one by HARKEN!)   ;)

Oh! Thanks for the tip Dean :D I'll have a scout around for some :)

Brinicle 'finger of death'
Under the polar ice form deadly icicles of salt


Scarey stuff - amazing how fast it grew - fast enough to catch the starfish out. OK - starfish don't move quickly, but even so.  :o

Happy New Year to you Stuart! Couldn't get into ABC as I'm in BBC territory, but I found a condensed version of Sydney's spectacular fireworks here:  http://www.sydneynewyearseve.com/   :D :D :D

Just sorting through the days picture comments on PW and this came up. It's a site we nicknamed DragonEyes and is on Cuverville Island. It's produced the most astoundingly beautiful scenes, especially during winter, and has us all breath-taken every day several times over.

Enjoy :D

I desperately want one of those Coquerel's sifakas - I wonder if Houston Zoo have a spare one?

That sifaka is a real sweetie, but the kid a few pictures below that looks like he's hanging on desperately to go to the loo just did it for me...  ;D
