Word Salads

Although this site is seldom updated, we do get a good amount (i.e. 5 – 10 per day) of interest from the ‘bots’ trying to post mostly nonsense. These posts typically contain links to other websites of dubious repute. I’ve removed the links, and thought you might like to read through some of the ‘word salads’ left by these bots. For a fun game, print these out, and read them out loud to a camera while maintaining the ‘serious’ look of a television newscaster.

How’s your vehicle holding up in the cold?

Traffic was light this morning, which was good as the cold and yet more snow does take a number on vehicles. You would not believe the breakdown I passed on Route 3 in Billerica this morning.

Fun Kids

Fuzzy worms for dinner.

It seems George’s friend “estankie27” didn’t quite have the Valentine’s Day he was hoping for. Yes, son, there’s even a card for that…



There are bad days, and there are bad days…

Bad Day

Hoping not too much fell on your head today…


The Best of Freecycle…

Offer: 2 kids bikes, available to anyone handier than us.

We have two kids bikes, suitable for kids from 7-10. The boy’s bike has a flat and needs to have the tube replaced.
But… there is a catch, because there is always a catch.

Long story short: We tried to repair the boy’s bike tire. We couldn’t repair it, so we took the wheel of the girl’s bike to put on the boy’s bike. But then we couldn’t get the brakes adjusted. So we tried to put the wheel back on the girl’s bike, but had the same issue with the brakes. Then we sighed, had a glass of wine and went and bought two more bikes because it just wasn’t going to happen.

So there are actually two bikes available. they are both complete, but each has one wheel off. The girl’s bike can be usably assembled immediately (but apparently not by us). The boy’s bike needs a tire repair and then can be usably assembled (but again, evidently not by us).

You’d think we’d learn.


Offer: Giant cast iron column (6 feet at least)

Heavy iron column, approximately 4 inch diameter, rusted exterior, heavy duty iron chain. Was used as an anchor for a floating dock. Very heavy. Substantial. Robust. An iron column you would be proud to own. Did I mention that it is heavy?
All the fine features you would expect from a giant cast iron column. For all your giant cast iron column needs.


Offer: Telephone poles.  No, really.

We have two telephone poles to offer. No, I don’t know why. They were here when we bought the place. Seriously, it’s inexplicable. If nothing else, they’re a fantastic conversation piece. “Are those… telephone poles?” “Yes.” “Why?”. “We don’t know. Maybe aliens.”
These are 6-10 feet tall, standard telephone pole diameter. These would probably make for an excellent landscaping berm. Heavy. You’ll need at least two people to load these things.

Lucky Cam is Live!

After experimenting with an always-on webcam, George and Jennifer asked to put one on Lucky the Leopard Gecko. If you look on the lower right side of this blog, just under the “Currently in Tyngsboro” weather widget, you’ll see a new picture of Lucky in his home. Clicking on this link takes you to Lucky Cam, where you can visit Lucky in his home.

This webcam not only allows you to see Lucky, but you can also move the camera to follow him around, hear what he has to say (not much, usually), and even sing to him! Here are a few notes for you:

When you go to Lucky Cam, you will be asked to log in. You enter the user name of LuckyPal (case sensitive), with no password.

After logging in, you will have to select viewing Lucky Cam through IE using an ActiveX control, through Safari, FireFox or Google Browser using Server Push, or through a tiny mobile server push such as is used on some cell phones. If you use IE, you will be asked to install the camera ActiveX control. Depending on your security settings in IE, it may not want to load and run it. If you have problems, e-mail me and I’ll try to help out. The cell phone mobile server push appears to work OK, but a lot slower than IE. We haven’t tried Server Push with the other browsers, let us know if you have any problems.

When you get the above screen, first try lowering the frame rate to 15 or 10 frames per second (fps). Slowing down the frame rate will improve the overall response of the camera interface. The camera pan and tilt controls should work, but there will be a delay depending on your connection speed. Lucky sometimes can be seen resting in his cave, other times he likes the corner just to the right of the big rock seen above. Clicking the ‘talk’ microphone at the upper right will allow you to sing to Lucky (assuming you have a microphone at your end). Sing nice to Lucky, he’s only 15 months old.

Update – 7 April

Depending on the version of IE you are using, you may need to set ActiveX controls to enable or prompt. IE 10 we found needs to be running in ‘compatibility’ mode to get the ActiveX controls to work. We have not heard of any viewing problems with the other browsers, however, the audio and microphone functions are not supported under the Server Push mode.
