California and Oregon both probably have problems with other states trying to bring truckloads of recycling in.  I have seen them stopped at the Arizona and Nevada borders.  You are suppose to take across state lines.

Well 2nd full day of spring and it is colder than yesterday, we also have had rain for both days and more is expected for tomorrow.  This weekend sun, but rain coming again next week.  Hope we have nice weather for Easter!

Off-Topic / Merry Equinox
« on: March 20, 2023, 10:40:21 am »Message ID: 1374729
Merry Equinox to all residents of planet Earth. On this day, Earth’s tilted axis points neither towards nor away from the Sun.
Astronomically, that gives us Spring north of the equator, and Autumn south of it.
Also 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime - worldwide.
But if you check the sunrise/sunset tables worldwide, you will notice slightly more than 12 hours of sunlight for today.  Mostly caused by the refraction of sunlight entering Earth’s atmosphere from space.  When you see the Sun rise, what you actually see is the location of the Sun’s refracted light, and not the location of the Sun itself.  The actual Sun does not rise for another several minutes. Refraction at sunset delays what you see by several minutes as well.
Also, the part of the Sun that peeks above the horizon at the moment of sunrise, is a different part of the Sun (sitting a whole diameter away) from what’s referenced for sunset.
Combined, these phenomena add multiple minutes of unearned daylight that wouldn't otherwise be there.

I am really close right now to be able to cash out.  So I am going to try and make it this month to cash out.  I only seem to do every 2nd or third month lately.

Irish ToasT

May you get all your wishes but one,
so that you will always have something to strive for!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
May the luck of the Irish possess you.
May the devil fly off with your worries.
May God bless you forever and ever.

It is getting close, with to many toasts, here are 2 today.

May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

When the first light of sun-Bless you
When the long day is done-Bless you
In your smiles and your tears-Bless you
Through each day of your years-Bless you.

This is fun for me even if I am the only one who sees.

I drink to the health of another, and the other I drink to is he. In hopes that drinks to another, and the other he drinks to is me.

Never criticize a man
until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.
For when you do that,
he’ll be a mile away,
and you’ll have his shoes.

Die Happy

The name is Irish.  I am Irish and Native American (Choctaw)

God made the Italians for their beauty. The French for fine food. The Swedes for intelligence. The Jews for religion. And on and on until he looked at what he had created and said, "This is all very fine but no one is having fun. I guess I'll have to make me an Irishman

Irish Proverb...
There is nothing so bad that it could not be worse

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure it's like a morning spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seem bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
they'll steal your heart away!
