***Timeline for the Winter Seasonal Contest***

It's March 1st and time for all our great photographers to think about what kind of photo to enter in the Winter Seasonal Contest.

Winter is of course not just about weather, but about holidays, food, sports or any activity that people enjoy during these cold often snowy months.

The Submission thread will open in a week, on March 8th. I'll keep it open till we have 30 entries, or until March 15th (also a Monday), whichever comes first.

The preliminary threads and the final thread will follow; each will run 72 hours.

I am looking forward to seeing what this talented group will present as entries! Of course, new photos are always welcome, as are photos from our archives.

More Funny Stuff!

Iím on two diets. I wasnít getting enough food on one.

A cold seat in a public restroom is unpleasant. A warm seat in a public restroom is worse.

Apparently RSVPíing to a wedding invitation ďMaybe next time,Ē isnít the correct response.

Have you ever listened to someone for a minute and thought, ďTheir cornbread isn't done in the middle.Ē

Aliens probably fly by earth and lock their doors.

ďYou will hit every cone on the highway before I let you merge in front of me because you saw that sign 2 miles ago like I did!"

I really donít mind getting older, but my body is taking it badly.

It turns out that being an adult now is mostly just googling how to do stuff.

I miss the 90ís when bread was still good for you and no one knew what kale was.

I want to be 14 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas.

I told my wife I wanted to be cremated. She made me an appointment for Tuesday.

Confuse your doctor by putting on rubber gloves at the same time he does.

I picked up a hitchhiker. He asked if I wasnít afraid, he might be a serial killer? I told him the odds of two serial killers being in the same car were extremely unlikely.

I went line dancing last night. OK, it was a roadside sobriety test... same thing.

I have a Dell desktop computer, with Windows 10 and Firefox.

I woke up my Dell this morning, and clicked on the Mozilla Thunderbird icon to check my email.

It did not respond at all. I can access my address book in there, but that's it.

And since it's Sunday, I cannot call my IT guy. And tomorrow I'm going for my second Moderna vaccine, and god knows how I'll be feeling after that!

I do have a Dell laptop, also Win 10 and I can access my email there, but I want it on my desktop!

Any suggestions you might have would be great.
