I really liked Dune as well. I love going to the cinema and Dune is perfect for that experience. Watching new releases on streaming platforms is not my thing, nor do I think it’s fair to directors whose careers depend on box office success. 

agreed!

after we saw it, i mentioned something to hubby that i don't think i'd like seeing it on our flat-screen TV.  he said i would.  nah, not for the first time.  maybe if i rewatch it sometime in the future (like i buy it on DVD, which i might do).

AND - hubby said he was able to understand most of it and stuff; and that he'd watch part 2! yaay! (when's part 2? 2025? XD)

Now... tackle the books in reception or the cigarette smoke-y clothes at the back door? Decisions, decisions! :P

what did you end up deciding?

 

so.... we might foster a cat.  we thought we might be getting another void, but something got lost in the communication chain and someone else adopted the void.  but there was another guy there, orange tabby tux named Nicholas.  not much is known about him, not even if he gets along with other cats or not.  the only thing we know is that kitty was not happy in the little cage.  we have a bedroom he can hang out in away from everyone else to see how that goes.  i have the feeling that if he does get along with everyone, he'll be a foster fail XD

My daughter and her hubby are getting two cats from the BARCS shelter where she volunteers. They will be outdoor cats because in spite of the best efforts of fosters, they could not adapt to living indoors. They will shelter them in their garage, where they have installed a kitty door. Daughter has missed having a cat since she had to have hers put down 3 years ago, but her hubby is allergic and said no more cats. So this may be the ideal solution. I hope it works out.

 

Psst! (Are Trystan and her hubby crazy cat people?)

Both! I get a lot more done in two hours on a Sunday than I seem to accomplish all five days of the regular week.

 

I'm completely out of data so I'm standing outside in the spry (very light rain) to be online. My plan renews tomorrow at 11:40 a.m.

They'll need to keep them in the garage for two weeks until the cats accept that 'this is where I live now' or they'll promptly disappear, unless there's a fenced pen with a top that they're going out the pet door into..

Ideally she should bring something like a towel home with them that already has their scent on it, so they can feel like they already have a claim to this new territory (garage) and they're not trapped in another animal's territory.

Yes, the shelter has given them instructions for acclimating them to their new home.

Why do some Minecraft trees have white and black trunks?

 

It's the birch tree kind. There are a few different trees in the game. Some act as color pallet for when crafting items

 

Morning everyone!

Exactly. Or customers to check out. Or donations to take in and find space for.

Good morning, CPA! B)

No breakfast for me, though, as I have bloodwork to do this morning.

Crafty question for you @trystan -- or anyone else.

My son in law has a lifetime goal of visiting all the National Parks and has already been to quite a few.

He got this shirt, which has check-offs for each park.

My daughter is asking how to mark them off. She was thinking acrylic paint or maybe puffy paint.

Do you think that would work? Any other ideas?

@purplehaze

fabric/puffy paint or even a fabric marker.

however, that link doesn't take me to the picture..... just an error page

I did it differently, but it came out really big, so I spoiler'ed it this time. Can you see it now?

It looks like the boxes are made with whatever it is that they use for the pictures on t-shirts and I'd want to be sure that whatever she uses would stick to that.

@purplehaze - yep, i can see it now!

hmm.  fabric marker.  or my fave, sharpie!

or, the little x could be embroidered on - that would certainly stay! XD

I like the embroidery idea! But the stitching might be uncomfortable if you are wearing it.

Or a small attachable bauble, the flat-backed sparkly ones, whose name has completely escaped me. (Old age sucks.)

I hope so! XD

 

Our shelter was broken into last night. Lots of door frames and locks and filing cabinets jimmied. About $250 and some bags and dog bowls stolen, along with the base unit for the camera system. :( My shop, thankfully, was untouched but it turns out my camera system, which might have seen whoever it was, isn't recording.

Who steals from a charity?!? :angry:

Lowest of the low! So sorry that happened!

People with no moral compass of which there are quite a few, unfortunately. Very year a few news stories about items stolen from houses of worship, schools, and Christmas gifts for childrens' charities. It's even lower to steal from the voiceless, abandoned and unwanted. You seem to be having a run of bad luck lately. I'm sorry, Lagie.
