I’m sorry to hear this, cricket. I will keep you in my prayers for your safety.May 29, 2020 at 6:58 AM #84600
Thanks, Jim, I appreciate that. We’re just waiting and hoping that either they go to jail sometime soon or somehow else disappear. That’s just one more stress making everything else so difficult…just about can’t cope with it all anymore.June 1, 2020 at 7:31 PM #84639
Something weird is still happening with me and this forum…I can’t tell when there are new posts. I look across the forum and it looks like it’s been either days or months since any of them have been replied too, but then when I get onto that topic, it’s been hours or something…so…I can’t keep up unless I go along and click on each and every post title…can’t do that…so, I can’t keep up. Don’t know why that’s happening…but it seems I’m stuck on some archived, old page or something, instead of the current forum topics.June 2, 2020 at 9:20 AM #84644
When I get onto the forums, it tells me it’s been 4 days since anyone has posted in this What are Y’all up to #2 post in this forum…where have I landed? It’s the Twilight Zone of the BGD forums. I can’t find my way around anymore…I’m in some archived loop or something.June 3, 2020 at 3:51 PM #84649
It changed a while back…the main page only displays the date the latest thread was introduced…not the latest posts.
It confused me for quite a while too…I’d drop in and see no new posts for several days, so I’d just leave…missed a lot of stuff that way.
Not much new here…mornings at the golf course every day, then home for breakfast, a nap, and some dog time. Evenings usually consumed by fiddling.

The fiddling sounds like a great thing going on there…hope we can hear stuff you’e working on soon. Hope the board gets better acting too.June 5, 2020 at 7:35 PM #84674
I needed to rehair my bow…only have the one and didn’t want to go without the ability to play, so bought another last night.
It arrived in a day and was here this morning.
Just says “Germany” on it and was made somewhere around 1920-30. it’s rather light at 56g but feels pretty close to my other bow.June 6, 2020 at 12:13 AM #84675Steve SraderParticipant
Dave sounds good then , a bow does make a difference in sound and ease of playing ! I hope you get a good rehair on your favorite old bow !June 6, 2020 at 10:54 AM #84678
the guys go to for my fiddles or Bass are top notch…no worries there…

I have a couple extra bows laying around out of fear of something going kaplooey in a bow and leaving me unarmed!
Guys…either nobody much is getting on the board here lately or else I’m not able to find recent postings…still not sure which..I’m still hearing that Twilight Zone music when I get on here…lol.June 7, 2020 at 4:50 AM #84687
Most all forums slow down in the spring…folks doing things outside, etc.
I expect the overreaction to staying home a few weeks will exaggerate the slowing of participation.June 7, 2020 at 11:28 AM #84690
True, people get too busy for messin’ around on the net at times, but my problem is I have to go to every post I see before I can know if there are current conversations going on or not…so…I don’t know…I’m just confused. Same thing happening with my youtube notifications…I feel like I must seem to be a youtube “snob” because I’m not answering comments and not getting notifications of some of the people I’m subscribed to…so…I feel I’m in the dark here…not know who’s talking where and unable to see it soon enough. Not sure what’s happening…just suddenly weird…lol. Maybe it’s something going on with my somehing or other…don’t know what it would be…my settings all look like they always do. But yeah…boards slowing down is one thing, but I can’t tell…looks to me like nobody’s every talking here unless I get onto each and every post and look…don’t have time or patience to do that. Same with my youtubes…I’ve got hundreds on there and seems I have to go check each and every one if I wanna see any comments…don’t get notified anymore…frustrating.June 7, 2020 at 2:22 PM #84691Steve SraderParticipant
Cricket , I think if you have the , notify me of follow up you get a response , because here lately I have been responding to some post and follow ups are working , a lot of members are not following up for what ever reason , and of course new post that you have not seen before have to be responded to and check the follow box to get follow ups ! I am guilty of not responding to some post as I am doing other things and maybe the new post does not interest me !June 7, 2020 at 9:24 PM #84697
Hmmm…well I used to get onto the forum and it had a sidebar that said “Recent Posts,” and I could see topics that came up to the top if they had been discussed since my last site visit. Now I see old stuff from weeks ago and the recent posts sidebar doesn’t ever seem to move at all…so I have to go into the forums and check. I don’t usually hit the notification button for followups because I get so many email notifications and newsletters and all that and stuff just gets lost in my email…so I normally just rely on the recent posts sidebar to know where to go to get in on discussions.
But as I said before…it’s weird that also my youtube notifications that come in the email are iffy…once in a while they show up, once in a while they just don’t…so I can’t keep up with what’s going on with my own youtubes or the other people I’m subscribed to.
Lol…somehow I seem to have fallen out of the loop or something. I don’t know…our wifi has been iffy and unreliable lately too…I don’t see how that would cause the Twilight Zone net stuff that’s happening, though…don’t know…everything just seems to have gotten weird and difficult for me online…lol. Strange. But it is the busy time of the year for outside stuff anyway…so my garden needs me and my dogs need me…I bought them a doggie pool last year and they were terrified of it, yet first ones to jump into muddy, mucky crawdad holes by the creek…I might get that pool back out and try to get them to like clean water to play in too. I think they just like to stink and look dirty.August 6, 2020 at 12:25 PM #85499
Besides working outside, I’m not up to much lately. Trying to spend more time playing with grandson when I can. I’ve played a handful of stuff on my presonus and put them up on youtube, but other than that I never play…lol.
Well my daughter is working on some project or another and wanted me to make a guitar track for Poor Wayfaring Stranger. I made it this morning but it was terrible…sounded really awful to me for some reason…just not together or something. So…I’m waiting for her to get time to come over and listen and see if she wants to sing it on there or if I should try again…lol..up to her. I can’t listen to it…like, sometimes after I put something onto the recorded tracks I just lose the ability to hear it right.
Might have to try again…to my ear it sounds pretty bad.
Other than that…cook, eat, mow, garden, repair, fix, holler at chihuahuas for yapping, rub their bellies for listening, play with grandson…’bout it.
I actually feel ready for fall…unusal for me…normally summer just doensn’t last long enough…but…I don’t know…I’m in the mood for cold weather…lol…weird for me. I won’t say that when it does get cold!
What’s everybody else doin’?August 12, 2020 at 4:31 PM #85581
I guess my farming days are long gone…and I’ll never get to live on acreage again, but, but, but…after struggling 30 years to try various gardening ideas here on our tiny postage stamp, I’ve dabbled quite a bit into edible landscaping. Tried various things…but, first I found Kratky hydroponics, and then moved on to some other ideas, eventually moving on to other plants to grow…plants that grow in very hot summers and can winter over inside and just stay with you, providing beauty and food forever. So…here’s my 2020 garden video…we don’t have much of a place…all we could ever afford…but making the most of where we are and what can be done.August 12, 2020 at 5:39 PM #85584John (BGD)Keymaster
I enjoyed seeing Buttons and Taffy! And your tiny garden of abundance was great. Now you have to play “Grass Hopper Sitting on a Sweet Potato Vine”August 12, 2020 at 6:31 PM #85585
Oh yeah…that’s a good one!!! Gotta play it as Buttons and Taffy do a little romp through the sweet tater vines…lol.August 13, 2020 at 4:26 PM #85592FrederickParticipant
Cool garden! I’m with John (BGD) Peggy….time for “Grass Hopper Sitting on a Sweet Potato Vine”. 🙂August 15, 2020 at 8:01 AM #85627
