Overheard in the Kitchen...

Me: "Dammit!" RX: "What's wrong?" Me: "There's not a cloud in the sky." RX: "That's the first time I've heard say that in a disappointed tone."See, I had plans to go to Holliday Park this morning fairly early with a wide-angle lens, a red filter, and a Nikon full of black & white film to take pictures of the ruins with a dramatic sky for a background. Looks like that's getting put off until tomorrow morning. [Author: Tam]

Random Horticultural Things I’m Either Loving or Loathing, and a Few I Haven’t Quite Decided On

For whatever they are worth, here are some stray observations that have rattled around in my noggin lately when I’ve had too much time to think. Let’s start positive! Why not? Here’s something I’ve been loving—the Fashionably Early series of Phlox. They’re some kind of hybrid. I don’t know the parentage. I wish I did, but it’s probably one of those things where one could possibly “know too much.” I’m thinking that if I were to find out, someone would have to kill me. Possibly Hans Hansen, who br...

Date columns of different formats - how to copy and paste between them?

I have a column that stores a date as MMM d yyyy. Copying dates from other columns that use this same format works fine. Sometimes I'd like to copy and paste the values from the Published field, which uses a different format. It fails. I know I can change the display via the tweaks, but before I do that is there some trick that I missed? :thanks:

Daily Prime - Savage Claws of Leo Prime Breakers

The Unicron Trilogy (Armada, Enegron, and Cybertron) toys varied wildly between each series with the latter being my favorites for the strong Cybertronian design influence and a good mix of beasts and vehicles. It will always be Takara's Galaxy Force to me because I preferred the drama and acting in the Japanese dubs of what was technically a different story from the Unicron Trilogy's Cybertron.

Bolton book says House impeachment inquiry should have probed Trump beyond Ukraine

• Trump did not know Britain was a nuclear power, asked if Finland was part of Russia, Bolton writes. • Intelligence briefings were a waste of time, “since much of the time was spent listening to Trump, rather than Trump listening to the briefers.” • During Trump’s 2018 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to John Bolton's book, Sec State Mike Pompeo slipped Bolton a little note dissing the president: “He is so full of shit.” Former Trump national security adviser John Bo...
