Good 37º clear ice on the barn roof morning.
My breakfast was an omelette cooked in my new omelette maker... I stirred together two eggs, a spoonful of mayonnaise (makes the eggs creamy and rich) and added in some ricotta cheese and mini diced tomato. OMGOOOOD!!!
I leave the omelette in 12 minutes sometimes and it gets a little crusty on the outside. I like it.
Yesterday our weather stayed pretty cool most of the morning. We did warm to 68º by 1pm... cloudy..... and then we topped at 78º.
I went out to take pictures and the woodpeckers were all over the wood power pole. I aimed my long lens at them and they took off! I guess they thought it was a gun and I was going to shoot them. Saw a couple in the tree...

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
A long time ago Jerry and I were both told not to take Tylenol, as we liked to drink alcohol. Me... wine, Jerry Jack in the Black and Tequila. We were told by the doctor that the Tylenol will destroy your liver so much faster if you take it and drink. Ok, then... we were told Ibuprofen was good. I have taken it for a long time and finally it had started to make my stomach uncomfortable and also didn't stop the pain like I hoped it would. So, I thought I'd try Aleve.
OMGOSH, it works sooooo much better and takes the pain out of my back and shoulder!!! I am totally amazed!!!
Here is some information, Ibuprofen vs Aleve:
