Out of the Blue

Well, it took a few days longer than anticipated, but the dam was breached on our pond yesterday, and the water levels are back to normal now. Presumably this means the beaver was a little tougher to trap than anticipated. This is probably to be expected when embarking on such a project during a full beaver moon. Here's hoping the beaver finds its new home equally appealing. I'm glad this worked out before it became a problem for the ducks. They feed on the plant life along the bottom of the pond, and I'm guessing the water being a couple of feet deeper didn't make things easy for them.

In reading about beaver mitigation, apparently relocation isn't very effective, having an 80% recidivism rate. Beavers were nearly hunted to extinction, but in recent decades their population has swollen. So if you relocate a beaver, shortly a new one will move in. Seems like the outflow pipe (beaver deceiver) preventing flooding is the preferred effective method these days.

I would suspect the video made the difference, without it your expectations could easily have been met.

Hey Blue I am still experiencing intermittent connection issues with the site. I don't 'think' it is on my side as it seems to only be with your site.
I am not aware of any issues, nor am I experiencing any myself.

Is anyone else having such problems?

Sorry Blue, my apologies if it is just me. Just seems weird and inconsistent but I guess it is just me.

Went to see the Peggy Guggenheim collection today. Intimate and well curated museum of modern art of the last century. While a small collection, it's well represented by some of the majors like, Pollock, Picasso, Kandinsky, Dali, et al. and many more less well known artists of those periods.

I'm not a major fan of most modern abstract work but I was quite impressed with this collection nonetheless. Pollock's Alchemy is especially impressive to see close up. Way more textured than I'd imagined. It's downright chunky - I'll be posting pics of all this stuff when I get home.

And as with any museum or gallery you'll likely find a few pieces you like from artists you've never heard of.

It's certainly worth visiting at any time of year.

One of the staff gave me some suggestions for some smaller but notable galleries in Berlin. She feels personally that Berlin is the best place to see art in Europe and she's Swiss. Super cool chick.
I'm jelly. Those are all amazing artists, and Pollock is one of my all time favs. If you looked carefully, you might have spotted his burned out cig butts stuck to the canvas.

I'm not having any trouble connecting to the site, but unusually I'm connecting via a Weyland Yutani neural synaptic adapter, so I'm probably not the best person to try and replicate your issue.

I have not experienced any oddities.

It might help if you post your time zone and the time the issue happened.
Also post the https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/*** response.
Does the same issue happen over cellular data.
The more info the better.

***Also has some connection troubleshooting tips.
