I'm looking forward to President Biden's visit to the storm ravaged areas of Florida

And encourage him to hug Gov. Ron DeSantis.

After all, remember what President Obama's hug did for then Gov. Charlie Crist? (The Hug That Killed My Republican Career) I can only hope that a Biden hug would do the same for DeSantis!

Of course, Biden does not have race going for him as Obama did - but it could still damage DeSantis in the eyes of MAGA Republicans.

I can only hope.

Got home from a trip today. Hurricane Ian may hit us Wednesday.

Right now, according to both the National Weather Service forecast (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at4+shtml/090354.shtml?tswind120#contents) and the spaghetti models on Mike's Weather Page (https://spaghettimodels.com/) St. Marks on the coast will be dead center and Ian will head almost straight north to come across Tallahassee.

I live NE of Tallahassee, much closer to Georgia than to the coast, so usually storms have faded a lot by the time they get to us. But with our canopy roads and overhead lines, usually the power is knocked out for days even with just tropical storms or strong thunderstorms.

Now we have a whole house generator and can set up the generator we bought a few years ago to power the well, so it won't be as bad as in years past. We've had years when the power was out for nearly a week. I'm getting far too old to deal with that, thus the investment in the generator..

No matter where it hits, I hope we are stay safe.

Best places to send photos, negatives, and film to be digitized?

My cousin died a few weeks back. He was the last in his family and my older sister is in charge of his estate. He'd left his mother's house untouched since she died several years ago. My sister found boxes and boxes of snapshots, negatives, and a number of rolls of 8mm film. She dumped them on me since I have been scanning family photos and expects me to scan all of these.

I simply don't have time to do this. I am still working on organizing and putting the family photos - many going back to the mid-1800s - so I can put them online for the extended family to see.

So I want to send this stuff to a service that can digitize all of it. My sister still expects me to organize the most interesting pictures and get them online, which will take a lot of time. But if a scanning service can do it, it will save me years of scanning.

Any suggestions?

GAY! - A Randy Rainbow Song Parody



Paul Hollywood finds the perfect strawberry

I should have known - Putin on the Rtiz

When the PhotoShopped picture resurfaced a few weeks back of Putin riding bare chested on a Ritz cracker, I had a fleeting thought that Randy Rainbow should do that as one of his songs. It turns out he did - five years ago! So here we go:





The only question I have is, which was the Putin riding Ritz image or Randy Rainbow's parody?

Unexpected Rick Astley - NSFW

Not really home improvement but a little DIY

I have a set of cooking pans that are great - but they are now over forty years old and the knobs and handles look worn. Trying to find replacement handle is iffy in my opinion - knobs not so much. But I had a thought - I know there are heat resistant paints.

What would be the best paints to paint these handles and knobs? I am not sure what the material they are made of - some sort of plastic or something.
