it´s finally becoming summer of here, it´s about 27 degrees celcius, and a light blowing breeze...Greattt!! Im on the board, sitting in my backyard with the laptop..this is life.

I know these temperatures are more common for every one in the US from the mid & southern states, but only 4 days ago it was about 13 degrees celcius here and raining very badly...

so if I take our conversation on gasprices yesterday

1 gallon [US, dry] = 4.404 883 8 liter

and

1.00 EUR = 1.26380 USD

than would be a gallon of diesel (comparise with shell v-power, don´t know what your using), costing 1.14 euro/liter (cost of april, says dutch shell website)

1.14 (euro per liter) * 4.4048838 (liters in a gallon)= 5.021567532 euros

5.021567532 euros *1.26380 USD=6.34 USD


So 6.34 a gallon, i guess that isn´t very cheap, heh?

Nope! That would be time for a civil war here in the land of SUV. I think Amsterdam has about the highest prices in Europe though, correct? Good thing you have such a nice train system...

I think you're Central European Time...seven hours in front of us now (GMT +1)? I can never remember with daylight savings time. I use this site:

www.timeanddate.com

To figure it out, always makes my head hurt. :wink: That was the toughest part of my old job, figuring out how I could catch those crooks in Schipol when they always had seven hours to get away before we noticed stuff was gone. :lol:

But yes, I get up early. Usually around 430am. Sometimes like today a bit later...and many times like today goofing around instead of working my dog. Which is the whole reason I get up so early in the first place. :lol: That's the only way I can get in good time before those kids start yelling (they don't kennel as well as Annie). :wink:

We have extreme high prices,most part are taxes :roll: In Germany and Belgium are the prices like ours or a bit cheaper, but they don´t have to pay additional taxes. Our "wegenbelasting" (literally translated road taxes, to pay for road maintance and trafficcontrol etc.) is next to the high gasprices. In belgium and Germany those taxes are within the gasprices..the more you drive, the more you´ll pay taxes for using the road...great deal imo.


I´m at gmt +2, in summertime and gmt +1 in wintertime. So indeed CET.

4.30 :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: you´re right out of your mind....(i´m not a morningperson...but i guess you´ve guessed that already..)

Yeah, Singapore has a great system like that...came well before that system in London about accessing their downtown...use certain roads at certain times of the day, and it's an additional fee. All electronic, no tolls. Singapore is a neat place, I really like it. One of my favorite cities (but not a good tourist stop) and probably my favorite city of all for food. I really like Indonesian stuff in Amsterdam...there's this one very nice place just south of the Bloumenfontein (sp?) that is great.

I did midnight shifts at a bakery in college...that messed up my sleep patterns badly. Then my oldest son (he's 3) has type 1 diabetes so we have to check his blood sugars at least once a night. Then my youngest son (he's 16 months) is in the process of learning to sleep on his own (we are dumb people with hippie notions of parenting, he's been co-sleeping with us :oops: ). So I have to take it where I can.

I do like getting up early, though, it's fun to be up and about "first." Particularly now in MN...we are at a high enough latitude that days start at this time of year around 5am. Just me and the dog.

That explains a couple things. Heres to Woody never getting a strong dog! <raises cup> You are the guy I am always giving the money back to after the first OB lesson.

Repeat this phrase for me.
Get out of my bed, you are too old for this crap. Go sleep in your own bed before I give you capitol punishment. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

My father (and keep in mind he had SEVEN kids) got up very very early. I would find him on the couch with a book. It was obviously the only possible quiet time available! LOL!

At least you are doing it at 16 months and not age 3, and I have known people starting it then!

My daughter had her last baby a couple of weeks ago, and I suspect that she's going to have trouble pushing this last one out of her bedroom.

Now me.......... I had no trouble at all. Took after my dad.

Ah Jeff, if it was Woody Inc. at the old homestead, we'd have an entirely different situation. Very close to what you describe. There is a reason the dog was housebroken before the kids. Just wait till my last day moderating...I will have a colorful and awe-inspiring meltdown that will do you proud.

Holy crap. I vote we keep you on until retirement.

I really don't WANT to witness a meltdown that would outshine Jeff.

Well Selena, you sent some good vibes our way. At about 2pm the dark clouds lifted up and we had a spectacular day in Minnesota. Around 70 degrees and gorgeous. Got in a lot of good swimming for Annie at the lake as she has become a water nut in the last three weeks (literally).

Nice one!

Hmmm...... so that's where all this overcast came from. It swooped in from Minnesota! :lol:
