I loooove this weather! We've still got the heat off and the windows cracked at night. I think it was 54 in the house when we woke up yesterday morning. Then it was barely sweatshirt weather for playing in the yard with the dogs.

Heh. To me, it feels like fall when I'm NOT sweating balls during the midday dog walk.
:)

I'm waiting for it to get just a bit cooler, then I'm going to tackle my grandmother's stuffed pepper recipe again. I NAILED that sucker last winter and I've been afraid to make it ever since, thinking I can only do worse!

I was thinking about checking the noise ordinances with the city and seeing what they say. I just wonder if they'd do anything if it's the daytime. I know I can complain the next time it's very late at night. I don't like to be the whiny neighbor, but it's really, really becoming disruptive. It's become a very regular/frequent occurence and when it happens, it's most of the day.
I don't mind some noise, I don't care if people have occasional loud parties or anything like that. That's life. This has jsut gotten unbearable. And now that we're finally getting nice weather, I'd like to sit in my yard or open the windows and enjoy it!!!
There are rules about excessive noises/decibel levels during the day time. You are entitled to the "peaceful enjoyment" of your own home. Check into it.

I didn't know that. I will definitely look into it.

Do you talk to them regularly? I would start getting to know them, then it will be easier to talk to them about the noise.
I feel your pain, though!
I don't. They are across a cul-de-sac. And I am a orner house, so it's like their front yard is across the street from my backyard. There's really no buffer.

I'd google "Noise Ordinance [city], Florida" "[city]" meaning your city.

Lucky!!!
We are going to the FL panhandle in a few weeks. Can't wait for some fall weather!!!
I'm more south, but do we have a real fall in the panhandle?
Fall is like 2 weeks, then we're hot or straight to cold.
I don't mind a couple degrees drop but it was overcast and dreary out. That depresses me. I love my sun.

Okay group, I saw Gravity in the IMAX version.

Wow. Intense, but Wow.

I saw it on our mega screen (not quite IMAX) in 3D, and that's my take on it, too.

That's really the worst part about winter here. 40 and sunny is a whole lot easier to take than 40 and overcast.

Good to know, about Gravity. It's on the docket for Friday night's date night (IMAX 3D... It's both or neither around here).

That's pretty much year round here...except in summer when it gets hot at 65...

Oh, and rain.

So D's computer is at least 5 years old and I want to surprise him either for his birthday (10/30) or Christmas with a new one (I can get special pricing through work). But he uses it for work and I don't know if it's something that he'd rather pick out. It just seems anti-climactic to say "I'm buying you a computer! Now go shopping..." Doing the whole thing seems like a better gift, much less hassle.

Thoughts, techie people? I already know what Tonka's going to say.

The people I know that *didn't* like it said stuff like "Well, maybe I should have seen it in 3D..." Yeah, that's kinda the thing. It's not got a super intricate plot or anything; it's got pretty visuals.
