    Yes, yes he did. But I still haven't run out of chicken burgers so I can say that at least I have chicken.

    How amazing that she was born!

    Well this is very good news: Izabella born 2/2/18. Our first grandchild.

    Cute baby pictures

    Mommy, daddy and baby all doing just fine!

    The service that took those pics does it for all the babies at that hospital. To buy buy them is ridiculously expensive, but they are nice to see on line. Their gallery will go away on Feb 17.

    If you want to play for anything other than 5th place you should evaluate your attitude. And think again.

    If you look closely, you may be able to notice a faint watermark on the photos.

    No, you just get a link back to the gallery. I've tried several ways. Their goal is to sell pics. Our daughter is a pretty good photographer, so I know we will get lots of great pics in future weeks, months, years.

    I find the snipping tool build into windows far easier to use overall than just hitting print screen. Greenshot editor (completely free online) is even better than the snipping tool and can be tied into the print screen button so you don't even have to open a menu to use it.

    Edit:
    Rave:

    I broke my long-running losing streak* with Asian-run salons. I got my head washed before my hair cut today and this woman gave me a full-on 10 minute head massage that was freaking life changing. My scalp has never been touched like that before. And the whole thing cost less than just a hair cut at a normal place, including the generous tip. I didn't even want the hair washing/massage but just rolled with it. Plus she was super friendly and nice and talked to me about the last jedi.

    Spoiler The Losing Streak :

    I was refused service by one lady who had cut my hair before because she decided she would only do buzz cuts all of a sudden. I was refused service at another salon for what I can pretty safely assume was just straight-up racism. Then the last place I tried before this one locked me out - I could see her inside with a customer and it was the middle of day but she had locked the door. Maybe she was planning on taking a lunch but there was no sign to indicate either way.

    And no, I don't have a thing for Asian-run salons, they just have a lockdown on the market in the last two towns I lived. Torrance is a major Japanese ex-pat city so that made sense but even here in Orange County they seem to run all the places.

    Well, I have it set up here so that Print Screen automatically saves the screenshot to a pre-specified folder.

    Yeah but if you use more than one monitor then you're going to get garbage pics that require manual editing. Even with a single monitor it doesn't allow for you to just copy the parts you want, it grabs the whole screen by default. The snipping tool allows for that and greenshot has even more options and is easier to use.

    edit: I'm still basking in the glow of that glorious scalp massage omg so good
