07:43:57 <819> Camera is well
07:45:44 <Kat> Sorry - had to step away for a few minutes - dock my pay LOL
07:47:11 <Kat> Sawmill ie
07:47:28 <Dave from B™> anything times 0 is still 0
07:47:47 <Dave from B™> I guess you could get half a pass instead of a full one
07:48:09 <Kat> :lol:
07:48:31 <Kat> I've never received a pass
07:50:23 <Dave from B™> Wel,, then you have had your pay docked already...not much they can do now:D
07:50:44 <Kat> That's right!
07:50:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I finally got the paperwork for mine last week.
07:51:45 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, I've never received it Kevin - is this the first time you got paperwork?
07:52:35 <819> You have to contact DaveK he will send you paperwork
07:52:46 <Kat> OK thanks
07:54:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think this is my 9th pass. They are fun to use. About half the people at the gate don't know what they are.
07:54:31 <Kat> Are they just for Yellwostone?
07:54:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just email Dave and he will send you a paper to sign and email back to him.
07:54:56 <Kat> yellowstone*
07:55:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They work for all the places a regular pass works. I use mine at Lake Mead and Zion all the time.
07:56:59 <Dave from B™> I need to buy one again...I'll be doing it at the Golden Spike in Sept
07:57:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you been to Gold Spike?
07:57:48 <Dave from B™> Nope
07:59:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Very interesting place. Try to time it when the trains put on a show. Read up on the area before you go.
07:59:17 <Dave from B™> I do have the train schedule
07:59:33 <Dave from B™> I think first train is at 1030
08:00:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They have a movie and some walking and driving trails that are pretty interesting.
08:01:17 <Dave from B™> Our plan is to arrive at 10 am. We are spending the night in Provo.
08:04:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The road to it is funny. It keeps getting more narrow, You think you are totally lost and it pops up out of nowhere.
08:05:12 <Dave from B™> I know there are warnings online to follow the signs NOT your GPS
08:30:57 <Katie> Mornin'
08:31:26 <Kat> Hi Katie
08:31:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
08:33:37 <Kat> Have a good monring!
08:33:46 <Kat> morning*
08:56:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> all the gazers sheltering in park?
09:15:41 <Katie (v3)> OF
09:30:42 <Mike J> After my trip in July with three straight days of 90 degrees, I long for a visit in this kind of weather.
09:31:39 <Katie (v3)> We are getting similar weather in Western Montana following months of 90-100 degrees and it is SO WELCOME!
09:32:38 <Mike J> On the other hand, here in Phoenix we've had four or five straight days of storms - our highs have been kept below 100. We've loved every minut of it.
09:33:40 <Katie (v3)> I should have said 90-106 degrees. It's been an extremely hot summer here. I know 106 is no big there, but a week straight of it here is troubling.
09:34:47 <Katie (v3)> And we had several weeks with 5-6 days in a row above 100. I remember occasional summers where we had one stretch of 2-5 days of it, but not so many so often.
09:36:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have had mostly days over 110° since May. It is getting old.
09:37:03 <Mike J> I fully understand how those temperatures, for so long a time, can take their toll. The similar situation for me would be if there was a straight week of temperatures in the 40s. We just aren't equipped for it.
09:37:37 <Mike J> Last year we set records for days over 110 and 115. Getting old is an understatement.
09:37:57 <Katie (v3)> Oh, I'm equipped, but the land isn't. It's too much here.
09:38:13 <Dave from B™> Mike J, are you going to the Eagles concert?
09:38:35 <Dave from B™> Katie, it is weird to see rain falling!
09:38:45 <Katie (v3)> Dave from B™, weird, but oh, so nice!
09:38:50 <Mike J> Dave, what Eagles concert?
09:39:09 <Dave from B™> Sept 24 & 25 in Phoenix
09:39:36 <Mike J> Didn't know they were coming. Just looked it up.
09:39:37 <Dave from B™> We're going on the 25th
09:39:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bet they are bald eagles now.
09:39:59 <Mike J> I'll have to look into that. My understanding is they are still fantastic - the vocals are still there.
09:40:05 <Dave from B™> haha
09:40:16 <Mike J> And, Kevin, kudos on the "bald eagles" comment. Truly a good one.
09:40:23 <Dave from B™> Billy Joel in Boston was AWESOME
09:40:39 <Mike J> However, I already have my tickets for the Monkees concert Sept 19th.
09:41:09 <Mike J> No apologies for that. I grew up with them. I learned to play guitar from a Monkees book. And, even though it is only Mickey and Mike, I think it will still be fun.
09:47:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I always enjoyed the Monkees. Do you remember "Words"?
09:50:06 <Mike J> Definitely. I can almost quote you the songs in order on each of their first five albums.
09:51:51 <Mike J> Two great Monkees trivia questions for the group. First, who wrote "I'm a Believer"
09:51:59 <Mike J> I'll give some time.
09:55:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Neil Diamond
09:55:08 <Mike J> Okay, not sure if we have any players, but the answer is....
09:55:21 <Mike J> Neil Diamond.
09:55:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
09:55:30 <Mike J> Kevin, got it in under the wire.
09:56:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you ever heard Neil Diamond's version of Hanky Panky?
09:56:18 <Mike J> Okay, here's a tougher but really fun one. Mike wrote a hit song before he was with the Monkees. He didn't have the hit with it. What was the song, what group did it, and who was the singer?
09:56:50 <Mike J> No I haven't, Kevin. I'd guess it's really a little weird.
09:57:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You have me on that one.
09:58:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
09:59:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know Mike Nesmith did some great country music but I think they were after the Monkees.
09:59:54 <Mike J> Answer time. Mike wrote "Different Drum" performed by the Stone Ponies
10:00:11 <Mike J> An interesting, fun fact. But what takes this to the next level is the lead singer of the Stone Ponies.
10:00:13 <Mike J> It was....
10:00:19 <Mike J> (Don't you just love suspense)
10:00:24 <Mike J> Linda Rondstadt.
10:00:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I didn't know that.
10:01:27 <Katie (v3)> Ready to take the wheel, Kevin?
10:01:31 <Mike J> Kevin, love the Neil Diamond song. Especially that intro and the spoken interjections.
10:01:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Mason Music. Time to drive.
10:01:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Got it up Katie
10:02:27 <Katie (v3)> Happy Driving. I'll be back shortly. This computer only has one monitor working and it's driving me bonkers, so I'll be shutting down to troubleshoot for a few.
10:15:10 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure if everyone knows, but Becca has a 1 year teaching assignment in Billings teaching 7-8th grade science
10:15:20 <Dave from B™> Students start Monday
10:15:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That should give HER an education!
10:29:31 <Katie> Best of luck to Becca. I hope she gets a good first batch.
10:34:02 <AYates> That's a lot of people at Bee without an indy
10:34:23 <AYates> Of course as soon as I say it half of them leave
10:34:38 <Dave from B™> I will send Becca your best wishes
10:35:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BH is at 17 hours. I would be there right now.
10:37:30 <AYates> Fair enough, no reason to sit at F&M right now, so Bee and Lion are really your options for a bit
10:44:53 <lc> morning all
10:45:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:45:18 <lc> Dave, congrats to Becca
10:45:32 <lc> and to you and M.
10:48:04 <Dave from B™> Morning lc. Thanks
10:48:23 <Dave from B™> Yes, we are celebrating 32 years today!
10:48:44 <lc> I didn't remember the number
10:49:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 32 years of what?
10:49:20 <Dave from B™> marriage
10:49:30 <Dave from B™> Do you have another word for it, Kevin?
10:49:41 <lc> Na and me 54 yesterday
10:49:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Congrats
10:49:54 <Dave from B™> Congrats, lc.
10:49:56 <lc> Ma
10:50:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> To both of you
10:50:09 <lc> thanks
10:54:39 <lc> Dave, didn't Becca want a lower grade? 7-8 will be a hand-full.
10:59:19 <Dave from B™> lc, she thought she wanted high school but she is better suited for middle school
11:00:08 <Dave from B™> I still not convinced it will be her career. She loves working in out cutting room and there is always room at the family business:)
11:00:31 <Katie> 7-8 graders can be a handful if the teacher doesn't establish the right "tone," but they are a great age for a science teacher
11:01:34 <Katie> we need good science teachers and I love that example for younger girls
11:05:59 <Dave from B™> My wife taught Soph Biology so she has been helping out a bit; well as much as stubborn Becca will allow
11:08:15 <lc> Becca stubborn? I can't believe that.
11:08:37 <Dave from B™> Only to her mother
11:09:31 <lc> that will change pretty soon.
11:12:40 <Dave from B™> It has gotten better since Becca has been in her own rented house for 5 weeks
11:14:16 <lc> gtg, tell Becca "good luck" and I'm really happy for her.
11:17:57 <Dave from B™> Will do. Say hi to MA
11:19:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Daisy timing.
11:20:27 <Katie> text sent
11:21:48 <Katie> oops - screwed up address. 2nd attempt
11:22:06 <Dave from B™> got it
11:22:29 <Kitt> got it, but Kevin's was faster
11:25:39 <Kitt> Happy anniversary Lc
11:25:55 <Kitt> my oldest is still stubborn Lc
11:26:07 <Kitt> takes after his mom
11:28:18 <Kitt> it is gloomy and drizzly here
11:28:48 <Kitt> I found out our schools don't start until after Labor Day
11:28:56 <Dave from B™> Same here
11:31:44 <AYates> Bee
11:32:21 <Dave from B™> woohooooooooo
11:32:29 <Kitt> climb baby climb
11:32:41 <Kitt> right out of the picture
11:33:27 <Kitt> oh there's the top, thanks
11:34:06 <Korbenc1> Thx for text
11:34:15 <Korbenc1> Some BH is better than no BH
11:34:33 <AYates> You missed about 90 seconds
11:34:38 <AYates> Less if you aren't on vlc
11:35:49 <AYates> I think the best eruptions are like this with very low speed wind that doesn't shift
11:38:27 <Mario> nice Beehive
12:25:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had something come up I have to handle. If another camop wants to move it after OF please do. I will be back as soon as I can.
12:26:03 <Katie> I'll cover
12:29:00 <Dave from B™> Thanks Katie
