Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

I'm more bothered that the beautiful Paseo High School with its tall tower, built in 1926 or 1927, got demolished and replaced by a box.

Re: SE Missouri 2016 Part 2

How about a walk in the forest? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50677793857_673e15d452_c_d.jpg Don’t you love the light on these skinny beauties? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50677713026_11e77d21d0_c_d.jpg We are attending a family reunion, and this shack is on the property. https://live....

SE Missouri 2016 Part 2

I love these little yellow beauties and the lighting surrounding them. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50655141276_2a74803c1f_c_d.jpg This forest was captivating to me. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50654406043_3ff9473b75_c_d.jpg My son snaps a picture of a wildflower on his iPhone. https:...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I can't speak to Roku, but I have an Apple TV, and it works just fine with Google Fiber. What makes you think it wouldn't? Hi, Sani. That's why i said "apparently." I'm not as well equipped technically as you guys. The best I could do was to spend hours on the Internet, trying to figure out what wo...

No, you were fine. You had to pick your way through all my words, and I hardly knew what I was talking about. You did help me get pointed in the right direction. Thanks much!

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I spent more time with my problem and realized that my question was really what ISP should I change to. Apple TV and Roku expects you to already have an Internet service. (They apparently don't work with Google Fiber.) I came to the conclusion that I would stay with Spectrum. When I called to see if...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Hi, all. I'm the one person "in a deployed Google Fiber area but sticking with current or moving to other ISP." My current provider is Spectrum. Today, they dumped two giant boxes at my front door containing a modem/router combo thing plus something like a digital box (I'm guessing here) for each of...

Re: SE Missouri 2016

Very close to the same area is Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. It features the highest point in Missouri, but it also boasts beautiful scenery. I do have pictures from our visit there, but you know how slow I am at posting these things. There's also Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park nearby. I already pos...

We’re still tromping through Elephant Rock State Park. Our path led us to this “rocky top” sort of place. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50588526326_f5436a4031_c_d.jpg Other folks enjoyed the big rocks along with us. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50588526356_86bd2b0287_c_d.jpg My husband ...

Re: SE Missouri 2016

Yes, Highlander. My son commented on the foolishness of building a lake on top of a mountain like that. For all those who love purple. You know who you are. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50558782381_c33342eb50_c_d.jpg I call these baby daisies. I’m sure they have a different, real name. https:...

Re: SE Missouri 2016

Thank you for posting that message about your relatives, FangKC. My grandfather owned many acres about 120 miles south of St. Louis in Iron County. He owned and ran a sawmill. He also built houses in the area. One of them was where his wife and nine children lived. It was a beautiful, two-story hous...

Re: SE Missouri 2016

I have to add my son's comment: That's what could happen when you build a lake on top of a mountain. Of course it did happen. It was asking for trouble.

Re: SE Missouri 2016

Hi, Moderne. I didn't remember anything, so I asked my son. He said there were boulders strewn all over. He showed me on Google Maps how the trees were stripped down to the bedrock. I grabbed a screen shot that shows it: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50441449498_e8f518ca08_o_d.jpg Hope this he...

These are the last pictures for this trip. Another picture on the lodge wall, scrunched and twisted just a little to force a nearly correct shape. Didn’t see any real ones. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50314349322_a502e6aa9d_c_d.jpg I liked the foggy atmosphere. The original picture is framed...
