  2. We are doing some temps so I had to disconnect the weather station FTP feed. It will be back up in a few weeks.

    Oh great guru …….. I am seeking advice as to how to build a web site for a business that I am putting together ? what app would you recommend? I was just going to do it in PPT and save it as an html.

    Oh great guru your advice would be appreciated.

  4. If you are happy with the results go for it. I use Dreamweaver and Go Live but they have steep learning curves. Is your business building boat houses?

    Oh great guru — getting ready to launch my business (Business cards, letter head, and the such) – what would you advise in regards to managing a home-based business from a telephone/contact perspect? I have looked at Wind mobile and at 45 dollars a month for all in — it is pretty attractive. Most of the activity will be responding to both voice and email after the 9-5 regular job. Pretty sure all these phone plans now give one the ability to transfer the phone number to another plan if changes are required.

    do you know of a red bird with a red beak that migrates through the Long point area in Ontario, not a cardinal

  7. Bigger or smaller than a cardinal? Was it red all over? What time of the year?

    Hi Jacques,

    Hope you’re having a good time exploring the world. I just wanted to send you a note and tell you that we miss having you Mackenzie.

  11. Mr. Giraud,
    I am recording a book of Thoreau’s papers for Audible books. A passage includes: “purple finch (Giraud)…”
    I need most of all the correct pronunciation of the name. (I’m thinking: “zjair-OH.”)
    My research leads me to think the reference is to Jacob P. Giraud, an ornithologist born in NY in 1811. I imagine he first identified this particular bird.
    A web search brought me to your website. So, if I may ask, how do you pronounce your name? And the obvious question… any relation to Jacob P.?
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Philip Hoffman
