GG GOT BANNED:(((

By: calpoppy , 6:06 PM GMT on March 19, 2017




Weather Underground: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the WUblogger ship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new blogs, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly blog where no one has blogged before.

But it ain't over yet, so get yourself a bloggin!!!!!

Well it has been fun!! When I first came here in 2008, I could not believe how badly people talked to one another, the hurtful awful things that were said. It was like a horrible reality show to me. Then I found real people here that were kind and thoughtful and helpful. I am deep inside a shy person so that first comment I made was really hard:)) Then the first blog was even harder. Everyone was so funny and wrote so well, but I found that I was in a very welcoming community and soon the shyness wore off and even if I did not write so well no one seemed to care!

While I have been here, my two sons got married, my one son procreated and so I have two beautiful grandchildren, I retired and started traveling even more then we did before retirement. My older son moved to Washington state, my youngest has been in Florida, Alaska, North Carolina and now going to Oregon.

We have let others into our lives, most of them we will never meet in person but that does not seem to matter. What matters is that we all care about each other:))

So I will see you at Flickr and at the Ark and some of you on Facebook.

In the mean time we can not get banned, whoo hooooooo!!!

docs final old format post at bottom

Final blog post in old software system
This post is scheduled to be the final one in the old software system; the new “Category 6” will use the Drupal software package, and commenting will be via the Disqus software package. The current plan is to leave the current blog archive up for two more weeks, after which time a full archive of all the old blogs will be made available, along with the first 500 comments in each post (no graphics or videos posted to the comments will be saved, though.) WU member Patrap figured out the Internet Archive “Way Back” machine has backups of the blogs; for example, one can access old posts by changing the “entrynum=“ portion of the URL below:

https://web.archive.org/web/http://%20/www.wunder ground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.htm%20l?entryn um=2835

Our FAQ page has more detailed info on how this transition will occur. Blog commenting is not going away! Check back later on Monday for the first "new" Cat 6 post.

Hi Gals! ~ I saw that, too! Well when you use the 'F' bomb within your header title to IBM, guess that's still the end result. I thought WU had become asleep at the wheel for they didn't seem to care about a lot of things of late. Fortunately, I took a photo screenshot of her blogheader and sent it to her via regular email just before the ban. Should make quite the keepsake!

The new owners of WU have deleted our WU Photos. Is now deleting our blogs, yet wants us to give data from our weather stations to them for free.

Pull your station. No community. No free data.

Oh my arms, my left is all bumpy my right is not bad. 12 needles struck, I have next week to do it again. But then I found out you can't do cluster shots after this color series, so back to the old way, darn. The next two series of shots are to strong to do clusters.

Did my first bog at The Ark... Yes, I have just seen it but couldn't read it... what font did you use? It looked like Greek sanskrit ! lol

I am so pleased you get to have all your shots on one day - that must be a blessing for you. One day a week instead of three or four!

But your arm/leg/ anywhere is going to be sore! I feel for you - but it will be worth it in the end and possibly a life savour:)

Hi WW! Wow that is interesting, Kenn is an ornithologist so I guess he would be at a big birding event!!!

Hi GG! I found the Ark pretty simple for right now though I do believe there will be a lot to learn in the future. Mass has hers set up really nice!!

Hi Rob! No worries!!!! I got the blog going this morning, my evenings are for no computers just for reading, LOL!

OZ Yay you have surfaced!!!!! I surely hope you can get on board with us either on Flickr or on Rob's The Ark. At least I know that Sandi will keep us informed about you!!


Well what do you know, my insurance okayed my cluster shots!!! I don't know whether I should be excited for getting 10 shots at a time, LOL! But once a week now for me to drive, so I will have most of my life back!!! So today I go in for 3 hours and get two shots per 1/2 hour. They said there is a good taco place right in the center so I will try that out, bring my paperwhite (kindle) and my knitting.

Spent yesterday afternoon making the sauce for chile verde and the sauce for fish Veracruz. So the Chile Verde is cooking away in the crock pot now for 11 hours. The fish Veracruz last night was not bad, but I think it needs to be tweaked a bit!

Did my first bog at The Ark, came out well and very similar to WU, I do love the fact that I don't have to take the s off of https anymore, LOL! A few bugs for me that I need to work out and that is usually me making bugs not the blog but other then that very simple, and user friendly!!

Hi Calpoppy trying to get round as many blogs as I can before they disappear, love your comments about us all never meeting in person but still caring, I am always really touched when I have not had time to blog to come back and find lots of people asking if I am ok!! I will miss knowing all I have to do is open my tablet and there will always be somebody to talk to but hopefully I will find people in other venues but I am not very tech savvy so I hope I can do these things! Thank you for showing me the wonderful places you visit and for sharing your beautiful photos!

Got your message in my email. Sorry it took me so long to notice.
I think you were the first person to get a member blog that hadn't already done a test blog. I forgot to tell you about the +Post button at the top of the screen when you are on your blog page. Sent you an ArkMail to explain.

Double checked all your settings so it should work for you. If not, send me a message (rob) on the messaging system and I'll find out why asap.

I apologize.

Hi Poppy, Interesting that you have chosen Kenn Kaufman's book. Remember my blog about they young speaker for Bird Club? 17 year old. Gabriel has spoken at numerous locations around the state, and has been honored with the privilege of being invited by birding expert Kenn Kaufman as a guest speaker at the Biggest Week in American Birding in Ohio. Kind of neat that you are getting his book.

I am still hung up on the author of Birds Art Life, Kyo Macclear. I read the book but is not the type of book you just put aside after reading it. It is interesting now that so many authors have public FB pages that they are actually active on. I was just checking out her author page on FB.

Your Kenn Kaufman has apublic FB page also: https://www.facebook.com/kenn.kaufman

I went ahead and ordered Kenn Kaufman's book. I had a coupon on Thrift books to use:) Paperback, so I will give it a review either at the Ark or on Flickr, won't be here:((( I should get a good insect book also. It helps when one does not have data connections when we are out and about in the boonies, LOL! So many things to learn about!!!

The big Yeti is my fav also, love the grin!! Are we going to be able to see him anymore on your cam?

If you settle on a good butterfly ID book, let me know. I've been meaning to get one as well ;-) I thought a little yeti farewell party would be fun on my blog, my fave yeti is showing up today.
Was supposed to be windy here, but I think it all stayed north, just for you ;-)

Hi WW! Yes it was great to meet them both. Pam is my age and she had two sons also, so we had a bit in common:)) They talked about getting together again to go out botanizing. I hope so:)

Hi Bug! It was really fun. I remember going out with the Sierra Club last year on a hike and the leader said they would go as fast as the slowest person and not leave anyone behind, then he promptly set out on the fastest pace I have ever seen, LOL! It was so funny, I asked one of the men did he always walk so fast and he replied no,he must have had his Wheaties this morning. Anyway that leader ended up detouring off while we were in front of him and three of us had no idea he had done that. So when we discovered we were on our own (we were fine) he was at least 1/2 mile in front of us on the road, LOL! To funny!!!

Hi WTS! It was great! Love your Yetis!!

Hi Sandi! It will remain as is:))

Hi Mass! Yes I planned on doing a test blog at the Ark last week, but saw that Rob had stopped that while he makes some changes??? So it worked out for me because I ran out of time:) I will be there as well as Flickr, but it seems like I can't even be here lately with my time being cut so short.

All in all it was a good weekend with perfect weather! Sunday we worked outside all day. I planted the one tomato in our blueberry garden (taking out the acid soil for the spot where the tomato went) so it is in a jail like compound so nothing can get in! We started up our drip system again, putting back parts we take out in the winter to prevent them from freezing up. My metal garden cabinet had fallen over during a winter storm so I cleaned that all out and threw some old, never used stuff away. So now it is nice and neat again. I fertilized everything in the greenhouse and put wire around the potatoes we have growing in our old garden which is now our compost pile. Yesterday was allergy shot day plus I had a late doctors appointment for just an annual checkup. So not much accomplished yesterday. Though I did get over to Lowes and ended up with two Kalanchoes, which I normally can pass up but these were like mini roses, so cute!

Yesterday was incredibly windy out!!!! Dust blowing out on the highway, probably really severe out in the Antelope Valley area.

Anyone out there recommend a good butterfly ID book??? I am thinking of the one by Kaufman, A Field Guide to North American Butterflies. We have new butterflies about, or new to me and I like to know what I photograph!
