    Good morning all,

    It is in the thirties here this morning, but the sun is shining and it should reach 60º by this afternoon.

    Today is laundry day as I was busy on the phone yesterday and didn't get it done...

    Time for coffee,
    §ue

    P.S.
    Be sure and check out Page 20 of COMMON GROUND COFFEE HOUSE #95 to see a pic of Bro. Tony (AVL1984) and his lovely wife, Viv.

    Weather turned here as well. Down to zero celcius (freezing) and we actually had snow this morning. Just a sprinkling, but a reminder that it is still possible. Nice day to stay indoors, stoke the fire, and just think about the things to do later....another day.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Sue, thanks for doing the link for me! I don't know why it didn't work for me. Of course, my computer skills being what they are explains a lot!!

    So windy yesterday afternoon! But the wind is gone today, and we have a cool but lovely day ahead. I'm planning to plant some more stuff in my garden. [​IMG]

    Enjoy your day, everyone.

    Good morning everyone!

    Kids are still suffering but it is a beautiful day here. It was kinda chilly this morning but is supposed to make it up to the 70's by this afternoon.

    Might get started at the sewing machine here in a minute. It's so nice and quiet at the moment that I hate to move! Yesterday was just way to busy!

    Whew. Good morning! A little late, but oh well.

    MK, I hope your kids get better, that must be hard to have them have so much at one time!

    I had to take my youngest to the Dr. (which went well, she's ok) so I was ten minutes late, first day of my new math class, and they were in the middle of doing some sloping angles garbage and it probably didn't matter that I was late, I was clueless. These math classes make me feel angry, stupid, incompetent, and like a failure because I try so hard and nothing clicks. If I hear one more instructor say you just have to put the time and effort into it, I'm gonna vomit on his/her shoes.

    Nice visual there...

    Don't feel badly, Gina. I excelled in mathematics in school, but to this very day, I have trouble making change for a dollar! Ask me wife.

    By the way, is a sloping angle the same as an angle of repose?

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Angle of repose is where a moving mass will come to rest. An angle of repose always has a slope, but a sloping angle may not have repose.

    Math is awesome. If it's done right, you can't get the wrong answer.

    A mathematics genius, that bloke is...Yea....

    The best way to demonstrate or explain an angle of repose is to spill a wheelbarrow load of gravel....the angle of repose is the slope from the peak to the outer surface..in simple terms...

    I am not familiar, to be honest, with a sloping angle, the term.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I'm not familiar with it either Jim, which explains why I finished my homework so fast! I couldn't do a single problem. It's the tutoring center for me! But...I have 4 classes in a row tomorrow, so it'll have to wait until Thursday, at which point I'll be 6 hours worth of work behind. Fun fun fun!

    However, thanks for bringing a positive post in here, after all my negative comments! Perhaps you can raise me to a higher power tonight in prayer as I try not to worry about this too much. It does make such a difference, when we're not divided.

    Oh man. See why I do so much better with insane teachers and imaginative writing courses than MATH?! If they'd just let me write about math instead I'd be just fine! :rolleyes:

    Could anyone use a inch or two of snow? We just got a fresh delivery and would be more than happy to share it with all my CGCH friends. I could always send it back to Ontario. It was theirs first! [​IMG] Not you, Jim1999. You're too far east. It's those St. Catherines people I tell you.

    padre, We had a little sprinkling of snow this morning, but it was gone as fast as it came. It did remain cool though, and warmed up in the afternoon.

    I would welcome a foot or two of snow on the working fields, if only I knew how to control that.....the pressing of nose doesn't work! The fields are very dry and need moisture badly.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Morning all:

    Wasn't able to post yesterday. Viv came home Monday night and the "check engine" light was on on the car. So, she had to call in, and we took the car to the dealership. The part is covered under warranty because it is an emissions part. But, there were several other things they tried to rope us into yesterday that would have cost us nearly $1,500.00 before we left the repair shop. We told them just to order the part and call us when it's in. The other stuff I'll try to do myself, or have someone else do without the highest cost of labour. We had to rent a car for four hours, and stopped by and looked at another car to replace the Lumina that died in November. It was a 2002 Chevy Malibu with 124,000+ miles on it. It was WAY overpriced...$6,900, especially for the mileage. So, we're going to keep looking. If we wanted that particular car, we'd have to borrow from Viv's 401k and pay it back over 54 months. Don't think that's what the Lord wants us to do with that money right now. So, the part is supposed to be in by Friday, and it will only take a few minutes for the mechanic to put it on.

    Thanks, Sue, for handling those things for me.

    padre, NO SNOW FOR US! It' about time to cut the lawn. In fact, it will be getting done this weekend. It's already 4" tall, and that has just happened over the last two weeks.

    Things here in TN are cold this morning. 39 degrees and frosty, foggy type stuff all over.
    Hope it's better where ya'll are.

    Have a great day!

    Bro. T

    Awoke this morning to two inches of snow covering the ground. We need the moisture, but it could have been rain.

    The bright light is that now we can see Tony's photo and his brilliant smile. God bless, brother.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Good morning all,

    Padre, and Jim, please keep your snow! I'm just beginning to think that spring has finally sprung! It will be sunny and 65º today but we will be getting rain tonight and tomorrow.

    Pastor Bob and Steph are making another quick 'turn-around' trip to Illinois today. I will see them at church tonight and we will have breakfast tomorrow before they head back to Kansas.

    Hey, SFIC! Where have you been? I miss your donuts!

    Time for coffee,
    §ue

    Helloooooooo!

    I've been burning my candle at both ends getting ready to leave to go to Phoenix today! I'm excited and may well try to get over to see Pastor Anderson -- I still haven't decided.

    The class assignment for my online class this week is to participate in a survivor type game that the teacher set up. Figures since I'm leaving town that this would be the week that we have a real schedule!

    I also hope to get the course I'm designing for this class finished while I'm out by the pool. Oh, please, be warm enough to sit by the pool!

    Ok, I thought Jim was joking when he asked about an angle at repose or whatever, but I looked it up and it's a term. YIKES!

    I pretty much quit the class already. There is an English class that will fit in my schedule, the instructor has me going in tomorrow and he'll see if he can get me in. If that happens, I'm dropping the math until next quarter. I spent an hour in the tutoring center trying have them help me with a problem...and it wasn't even a problem, it was a formula. I couldn't even tell the difference, and was trying to solve it. The tutor didn't get it, then left and a second tutor came and figured out why I was having such trouble.

    Angle of repose is actually an engineering term. I doubt if you would ever see it beyond a class, in engineering or architecture. Prolly 80 per cent of the populace wouldn't have a clue what it means.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I thought the angle of repose had something to do with my La-Z-Boy recliner......
