09:26:41 <Betty> dep ie
09:30:51 <Kitt> I fear Beehive has gone to the dark side
09:31:19 <Kitt> hopefully some day it pulls a short or a long and rejoins us in daylight
09:39:57 <Michelle> Getting hard to see down there
10:01:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Mason Music.
10:01:36 <Michelle> Are you read?
10:01:38 <Betty> I can hear it
10:01:46 <Michelle> Ready?

10:02:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Got it.
10:03:02 <Michelle> It's all in black and white today!😁
10:03:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Makes me enjoy the desert that much more.

10:07:09 <Betty> thx Michelle, same to you
10:29:19 <Betty> OF
10:30:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> White on white
10:30:25 <Betty> it´s that time of year
10:49:26 <Dave from B™> Back to being down 2.5 people:( Does anyone know math anymore?
10:50:16 <Betty> ouch
10:51:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey, I know some business owners that can't spell!
10:51:49 <Katie ☀️> Dave from B™, so frustrating!
10:52:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 12 years ago I had problems finding someone who would show up on time.
10:58:41 <Dave from B™> Taylor and I are so run down and we have the pressure of the holidays coming up and we can't find anyone and opening positions are paying 20% more than last year
11:13:50 <Greg (working)> Sorry to hear that Dave, the issue you are describing is wide spread. Good luck.
11:23:06 <Dave from B™> I should have had more kids:)
11:24:23 <Dave from B™> Trying to deal with 50% growth and a shrinking staff is not fun
11:24:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A few years ago I would have let you have some of mine but now they are all gone or broken.
11:24:48 <Korben> Dave from B™, :( I would apply but I am not in MT :P
11:24:50 <Dave from B™> haha
11:25:12 <Dave from B™> Korben, if a few years, I won't be able to afford you:)
11:25:21 <Dave from B™> in*
11:25:26 <Korben> Dave from B™, haha, engineering pays very well :D
11:26:20 <Dave from B™> Katie, did you read about the stabbing at a retaurant here? Everyone is basically hiring the first p[erson off the street with no background checks
11:27:23 <Korben> Dave, open up a shop in West YNP and I would work there during the simmer :) I am hoping to get a summer job with Xanterra one of these years to be closer to YNP for a summer
11:27:25 <Katie ☀️> Dave from B™, I missed that.
11:27:53 <Korben> So they hired someone who stabbed a bunch of people? Thats not good
11:29:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He didn't pass the test for the postal service.
11:29:12 <Dave from B™> Yep. $1 million bond
11:29:36 <Dave from B™> They let him go in the morning and he came back during dinner time
11:34:31 <Katie ☀️> Wait. He stabbed someone at work, was released, and came back to work?! Well, at least he shows up. :D
11:34:42 <Korben> lmfao Katie
11:35:11 <Katie ☀️> Oh! Fired in morning, came back and stabbed. Need more coffee. Sheesh
11:35:30 <Korben> Dave, he was on 1 million bond when they hired him?
11:35:44 <Katie ☀️> In my defense, I had a weird support call in between. :D
11:36:35 <Dave from B™> haha
11:36:48 <Katie ☀️> marijuana greenhouse emergency with a climate control touch panel not working (needs Internet). But their Internet is working fine and we don't support every device on premise.
11:37:05 <Korben> *chuckles ironicaly*
11:37:10 <Korben> ronicaly**
11:37:18 <Korben> utonincy*
11:37:30 <Korben> Ironically**
11:37:33 <Katie ☀️> But they gave me 6 different business names to find their account before the account name it is actually under.
11:37:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This world is nuts! Glad I am on this end of the life cycle.
11:38:23 <Korben> Kevin, I guess I pulled the short straw :)
11:38:49 <Katie ☀️> Korben, your generation really did - you've been given many messes to clean up.
11:39:00 <Dave from B™> Yeah...they're not scurting the law at all
11:39:00 <Korben> that is for sure
11:39:12 <Katie ☀️> (while the generations that made the messes mock you)
11:39:20 <Korben> and most of my generation seems to be sub par :p
11:39:48 <Korben> True, but to be fair, I am 100% sure that my generation will leave a bunch of messes for the next Gen to clean up
11:40:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are many great kids but it seems even more losers.
11:41:24 <Korben> I think the biggest thing laking from my generation is work ethic
11:41:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ethics in general.
11:41:54 <Korben> true that
11:41:57 <Katie ☀️> Korben, that's the fault of their parents.
11:42:07 <Korben> Katie, couldn't agree more.
11:43:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Too many "stuffed toy" kids. Parents didn't think they had to do work with and for kids, just take them off a shelf when they wanted to cuddle with something.
11:43:32 <Korben> indeed
11:44:23 <Katie ☀️> My cousin is pregnant with her 9th. People are kinda critical of that. But she and her husband are raising the kind of people this world needs. Many hands make light work, but they all, from toddler on, have age appropriate (and rotating) chores.
11:45:13 <Korben> I still think the first 12 years are the most important, it is alot harder to be sucessful if you dont learn things in the first few years.
11:45:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep. Large families tend to work together.
11:45:56 <Korben> large families can be both good and bad, raise the kids right and they end up changing the work, raise the kids wrong and the world has a few more fast food workers.
11:46:11 <Katie ☀️> My husband made a comment about "how are they going to pay for college or trade schools for 9?" My dad pointed out that the oldest two get straight A's, participate in athletics, play musical instruments, one has a baking business, do volunteer work... they will get scholarships.
11:46:36 <Korben> exactly
11:46:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My kid used to get mad when I had him digging trenches for pipes, shingling rood, wiring additions, installing plumbing... Now he understands why he was doing that while his friends were out playing.
11:47:09 <Katie ☀️> Heck, the oldest does pretty well with her baking biz - she's already making dough (both kinds)
11:47:21 <Korben> :P lol
11:47:51 <Korben> Kevin L™ 🌵, kids need to get beat into the ground more to toughen them up, otherwise you have a cancerous snowbank.
11:48:10 <Korben> cancerous snowfalke**
11:48:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. It is being kind to them.
11:48:41 <Korben> I see it as building up a good immunity to pain and struggle :P
11:49:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He is about to get the other end of the education cycle in May.
11:49:29 <Korben> graduating college?
11:49:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Having a kid of his own.
11:50:01 <Korben> ah.
11:50:01 <Betty> hahaha
11:50:18 <Betty> congrats Kevin
11:50:32 <Korben> Kevin L™ 🌵, give him my sincerest condolences for his loss :P and congratulations. :)
11:51:25 <Korben> is it the nacho kid one?
11:51:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It will be fun to see how he handles it.
11:51:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
11:52:20 <Korben> Kevin, worst case is, grandchildren are expendable :P :P
11:52:24 <Dave from B™> Is this Rob?
11:52:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
11:52:54 <Korben> and Nacho kid = race car driver?
11:53:01 <Dave from B™> So, you are getting the kid a race car at what age?:)
11:53:33 <Korben> Well, my lunch is over. Cya later all, enjoy the snowy weather.
11:53:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well he was a race car driver. We will see what Mama says about THAT!
11:55:06 <Dave from B™> haha
11:55:44 <Dave from B™> Maybe, he will become a park ranger. It's in his jeans
11:57:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He is doing a good job making smells right now.
11:58:15 <Dave from B™> kid on the way...there has to be a good joke in there somewhere:)
11:58:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He may need to install a system in his house.
12:23:11 <Katie ☀️> Making smells?
12:24:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
12:27:00 <Dave from B™> Katie, you have smelt his work in Vegas
12:28:01 <Katie ☀️> I was just thinking I probably have. Every property has its own smell. I could identify some of them (like Luxor) blindfolded.
12:28:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Most of them have custom mixes
12:29:45 <Katie ☀️> CPAP users become quite aware of that. The scents "stick" to masks. Get home and still smell Luxor scent, for example.
12:31:49 <Katie ☀️> I am especially sensitive to scent, too. For a number of years, I could hardly smell. Since my allergy docs fixed that, my nose is quite keen.
12:32:39 <Katie ☀️> sometimes I wish not so keen...
12:33:29 <Katie ☀️> It's trying to snow here - quite a contrast from yesterday's clear blue sky.
12:40:15 <Betty> we know the characteristic smell when we enter Treasure Island hotel from the parking garage via the bridge.
12:42:25 <Katie ❄️> When we were in Antigua Guatemala during Lent, there was a botanical sort of smell, not flowery, but botanical that it took me 4 days to figure out. I would remark when the scent was stronger to my husband, uncle, sisters-in-law. None of them could smell it. They thought I was losing my mind.
12:42:50 <Katie ❄️> It was palm flower
12:43:03 <Betty> :-)
12:43:59 <Betty> I can recognize bacteria only from there smell
12:44:07 <Betty> their
12:45:58 <Dave from B™> My sister in law is a manager/tech in the scent dept of SC Johnson in Racine, WI. She can tell you the first 5 scents in any scented product. She is amazing
12:46:35 <Dave from B™> Picture us travelling in Europe at a grocery store with her opening the cap of dozens of scented products
12:49:51 <Katie ❄️> I tend to avoid artificially scented products - migraine & allergy trigger. When I discover one I can enjoy without symptoms, I'm thrilled.
12:51:44 <Katie ❄️> A friend who knows how sensitive I am gave me some cuticle oil and said she hoped the scent didn't bother me too much. Whadya know - I LOVE it.
12:57:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I don't know what kinds of oil they use but I really like the clove smell.
13:02:25 <Katie ❄️> Years ago, my husband I stopped at the Good Food Store (bulk spices) and bought all the spices for a seafood boil - which includes cloves and allspice. Then we went golfing. Until a deer totalled that car, every time it was in sun, it smelled strongly of cloves, allspice, and the other spices.
13:06:13 <Katie ❄️> As it happens, today is the anniversary of that deer totalling my car
13:06:30 <Betty> hahaha
13:06:37 <Betty> good timing then
13:43:50 <Betty> people watching OF
14:32:53 <Tsunami> nice snow going on
14:35:07 <Betty> hi Tsunami
14:58:22 <Betty> Daisy iie
14:58:45 <Betty> hmm
15:00:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is the problem I have had all day. This is the best I have seen and the control screen is horrible.
15:01:08 <Greg (working)> Weird not taking the cam now.
15:02:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now that is Daisy
15:04:19 <Betty> yep
15:05:32 <kiawe (at work)> Foggy for days! Aloha, all!
15:07:02 <Betty> daisy start 1500
15:07:48 <Betty> aloha
15:07:57 <kiawe (at work)> I can't be certain, but it looks like Spasmodic is going off.
15:08:29 <Betty> not in view?
15:08:53 <Betty> I see Sawmill
15:08:57 <kiawe (at work)> Something on the far right is erupting, but my identification fu is poor.
15:09:14 <Betty> but I´m lagged
15:09:33 <kiawe (at work)> So 'tis! I was fooled and thought the Grand group was closer.
15:10:40 <kiawe (at work)> Naughty, naughty Sawmill.
15:18:52 <kiawe (at work)> the only way I can tell we're looking at OF now is bcause I can sort of see the Lodge. Everything else is covered in melting snow.
15:28:28 <kiawe (at work)> Off to help some patrons. Aloha, and stay warm!
15:56:28 <Greg (working)> Ready when you are Kevin.

17:50:43 <linda> just got a bear on cam text, I guess a bit late
17:53:19 <kcmule> too bad you could have been tricked like the rest of us
17:53:55 <linda> kcmule, no bear huh?
17:54:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was a fake.
17:54:42 <kcmule> just an evil bison playing shadow puppets
17:54:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A bison wearing a bear suit.
17:55:04 <linda> LOL
17:55:29 <linda> i've heard of bison that do that, but never saw one. ;)
17:56:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But it didn't have black eyes.
18:15:00 <𝕡𝕠𝕜> :D
18:26:30 <Tsunami> hmmm, well I'll ask tomorrow. Looks like East Sentinel was interesting this year.
18:27:20 <Tsunami> I'll want to look in on her next year.
18:32:27 <gary> Just received a text about a bear on the webcam?
18:32:47 <SantaFe108 lurk> it was a false alarm

19:12:18 <linda> SantaFe108 lurking, >(
19:39:57 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha folks! Just a fast checkin; how come the camera looks much clearer when it is in low light mode? Earlier today everything was covered in melting snow.
21:51:05 <Kitt> I am glad to see the fuzzy animal in the meadow was a bison
21:51:50 <Kitt> I was searching the hill and the parking lot trying to find the bear, until the cam zoomed in on the animal in the meadow
