    What the -

    Oh,,,,, I think I missed it........ oh, the timeline maybe different here in the Philippines! I hope I can see it.........

    Oh, and did you notice some kind of strange behavior in your chickens during the eclipse? They might be doing a ritual.......

    Hope you enjoyed it! (I hope I can too)

    jeez, it's 76f in the house and -10f outside. That's a 86 degree swing in temp. [​IMG]

    I suppose I'm a man, and I can, if I have to!

    Now that's the pitts. Wouldn't you know it; cloudy and raining in Louisiana tonight. [​IMG] Of course it is. We had two days with no rain so now it has to rain for two days. [​IMG]

    One year I set up a Cannon EOS 750, 35 mm camera on a tripod in the yard and set the timer. I still have the photos of it. Yeah, I know, you are not supposed to be able to do that, but ignorance is a bliss sometimes.

    Its very cool. I can see it very clearly when I go stand in the field across the street. Otherwise all the pine trees block my view. I tried to take a picture for you all but my camera is just the pits.


    Best I can do. I need a new camera
