    Not much action the last 2-3 days here :smile:.... or is it just my imagination?? where did everybody go? did you all leave town for the 4th of July and not take your iPad or Laptop? If you leave town without your iPad (Tablet) or Laptop you will be fined accordingly..

    I am in Baltimore, haven't had power since Friday night and won't get it back soon. So I am only around for as long as my iPhone/iPad batteries hold up after work.

    While the summer season began over a month ago and it's been officially summer for more than a week... the weather has been strange in the U.S. It's been unusually cool in general near me - with intervals of unusually hot weather. But I thnk summer has finally seeped into the psyche of Americans. People are out at the beach and on vacation. This isn't the only site that's gotten quiet.

    EDIT: P.S. Happy Canada Day, Ned!

    Hanging at the homestead, Doug. Beautiful and very comfortable here now. I feel terrible for the folks in the hot and burning and power-less areas of the country right now. We should be very thankful for the pacific northwest, especially this time of year.

    No electricity for 48 hours. Tends to inhibit online activity.

    Seems to me that only the people who live in the Pacific Northwest would have any reason to be thankful for the Pacific Northwest.

    Warm and dry today here in the Pacific Southwest. Killed myself working in the backyard Filled up two 80 gallon compost bins and two 80 gallon green recycle bins with green waste. Then some Sangria, a big slice of triple berry pie and bowing to a need of stopping all movement.

    A soft evening here on the property in Washington State... hearing the sounds of fireworks through the forest...

    Just took a stroll on the property with the E-M5 with 20/1.7 this evening...

    Gary! Astute observation. :wink: Doug and I are from the Pacific Northwest, as are a number of other members of the forum... it is these folks to whom I was referring. (Not the forum in general. Guess I should have been clearer on that.) :smile:
