Ah, the veggies. About this time last year, when I just found this forum, I was teasing Khan about "his" successful veggie bumper crop, and Oldbabe about her expensive tomatoes. I also threatened to do some serious gardening. Now, one year later, the side yard that my wife and I cleared of sod is still bare dirt, scorched by the hot sun (108 deg today).

Storm cloud, building in real time just north of my house. Thunder is rumbling and the excitement will start anytime...

Question for you shutter bugs out there... I have tons of photos scattered across several hard drives, directories, achive drives, etc. I recently purchased a new large drive with a shadow backup and I would like to search for and move all my photos to the new drive. I'm looking for a good software tool that could do this - plus look for duplicated files, provide previews, etc. Any suggestion?

Freebird, I think you are confusing the tiger lily with the daylily. The only reason I know this is my dad grew and sold daylilies as a hobby after he retired.

I'm so confused.
Orange daylily it is.

Yep. Damp, and cold too. Lord Byron wrote his famous poem "The Prisoner of Chillon" after visiting it in 1816 with his friend Percy Shelley and his wife, Mary, who began writing "Frankenstein" on the same trip. The poem is about Francois Bonivard who was imprisoned in that basement for six years beginning in 1530. Brrrr!

Anyway, that is what the guidebooks say when you visit there.
The web has a ton of stuff about it:
- History of Chillon Switzerland

Frankenstein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Prisoner of Chillon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is the poem itself

This is an arete looming over Waterton Lake, which is partly in Glacier National Park and partly in Waterton Park. There is a nice tourist boat that takes you from Waterton back across to Goat Haunt on the the U.S. side. It is so remote that they don't even bother with customs there.

We were there in the summer of 2007 and it remains on of our all-time favorite places.

I'm not sure it will do all that you want - mainly because I haven't explored all the the capabilities of the software, but take a look at ThumbsPlus. There are numerous versions floating around on the net, and some of the earlier versions remained totally functional even after the trial period had expired.

I took these pictures at a friends place. My feeders are not this sparkling clean.

This eastern screech owl spent almost an hour in our birdbath yesterday, much to the consternation of our usual batch of bluejays and cardinals who consider it their territory.
