Florida's rules are all either county by county and even city by city. I live in a county with a curfew, but work in one with out (counties vary in Florida on how the mayor of the county can issue encompassing rules) as well as work in a city on a barrier island where you can't get on unless you either live, work, or study on it. Plus, I live in the county, not a city, so all around me are cities with stricter rules than the county has right now. It is a lot to keep up with.

I just to get back to some sense of Florida normalcy, where Florida Man isn't spreading the Rona and we can leash walk our pet alligators without being quaranshamed. More importantly, I want to not have to worry about my mother, thankfully neither of us is exposed to the public too much right now even though we're both reporting for work, but still, we've had to go to Publix and Petsmart and a vet two counties over (I'll go post THAT story on an off topic board).
And yet, another rabbit

It has been decided. My father must be haunting mom and I from the grave. He has sent yet another rabbit into my life. We caught this one and a few others on Saturday. A coworker of my mother's will take the other ones, but we kept one. I now have a third rabbit who, at first blush, looks twice as big as my 4-5 lb hotot mix and is three times the size of my blue eyed mutt bunny who's only 2 and change pounds. Vet said he was 6.5 lbs, but I think he's underweight, having been out in the wild with no food or fresh water for a bit. Big Bun is slowly learning that pellets are good, hay is good, and treatos are very good. He quickly figured out that bananas are very good.

His ears are big and look like a Flemish Giant's ears, but he's much too small to be a Flemish. He is a brown brindle, with a white belly, has the softest fur, and is the most gentle rabbit I've met. He is friendly and has already decided he can safely flop in his quarantine cage, as he recovers from being neutered (and what a big flop! the THUMP from his flop made us look up). It'll be about two months before I can introduce him to Alice and Mr. Bones, not sure if I'll have a bonded pair and an extra bunny or if I'll have a bonded trio.

But, where am I going to keep three rabbits? My pen for the other two is just about the minimum for two, and we can't do free roam, since the dog is already free roam, and we don't have any extra space. I once read that a tiny house is one under 900 sqft, and we're just over that. We'll make due, we always do.

Does anyone collect stamps any more? Postage stamps, I mean. Doing some de-cluttering and found quite a few interesting USA and international stamps from years ago.
Contact me if you'd like them and I'll mail them out to you!

Psychic Kids Returns! 10 years later!
Board: Television: After the Show Ends
Mar 26, 2020 1:35pm
Board
Ten years ago there was a show called Psychic Kids. The premise of the show was to pair two kids of roughly the same age to help work their psychic abilities. They would give the kids tasks to help them focus and learn how to use their gifts and to set boundaries with scary entities. I used to watch this show with my mom and we loved it!

Now A&E has rebooted this show, using the kids featured on the original show, now adults, to mentor and tutor a new generation of children going through the same thing. Having binged watched the entire first season, I seriously hoping for a second season, or 5th season depending on who is counting, lol. I truly enjoyed it.

The premise of this reboot is slightly different. Instead of have the kids come to a retreat, the mentors actually go the children’s home and mentor them there.
Personally, I liked having the kids meet another psychic kid to help them understand that they are not alone but no one asked me about this reboot.

Either way, if you remember this show, then I recommend this reboot. No Kitty Paws.

I would have liked to have watched the original show first and then the reboot but I did not know the original show is actually available. It is through Amazon Prime. But the reboot is through HULU.

Does anyone have a good source for 35mm film canisters? I'd like to buy a bunch, preferably with the lids that go over the edge of the canister, not with the lids that you press inside the canister.

Check eBay. They have a ton. Keep scrolling. Different prices. Different offers, etc. I believe those lids are on the inside but they have all kinds.

OK, who sneaked in behind my back and changed that so quickly?

I didn't change anything. I think there was a mistake in your experiments. =)

Each box in a series (regardless of whether it's an LTC, traditional or anything else) can have one find recorded on it per person. It's always been that way.

Some people mess things up when they add a new box to a series, changing the name of an existing box to be the name of the new box then adding the name of the old box to the new box listing. They're typically trying to get the boxes to show up in the right "order," but the finds stay with the actual box listing rather than the name of the box so when someone does that, it ends up showing finds on the wrong box. There's a specific mechanism in place so people can order the boxes differently without mixing up the finds, but I guess they don't realize it or can't figure out how to work it.

Maybe something like that happened in your experiments?

In any case, each LTC in your series can each have a separate find date by the same person.

Thanks for these--actually recognized that tune. They 'light up my life.' Don't have cabin fever, I wish. Had to work all week and husb. has Dr. appt. in less than an hour. Then I'm free to be lonely again. I'm kind of likin' those days I have no one to answer to.

I love the broadway medley. Made me laugh. I love musicals.
