Thanks, I’ll have to remember that, obviously out of touch.

Rabbits and hares are not rodents anymore in modern mammals systematic and taxonomy

There are in separate order - Lagomorpha

Thank you for bringing these to my attention. The names have been updated to
remove the term "rodent". They should not have contained the word "rodent", since
"rodent" is not a synonym for a rat or a mouse. It is an order of mammals.

Almost annoying as Legos.

  How can i request the description change voor Gear 64776
It now is
Die 6 Sided Rubber Frame with Red Center with Studs (Board Games)

And i think it would be usefull to change it to:

Dice 6 Sided Rubber Frame with Red Center with Studs (Board Games)

By doing this you can also find it when you search for Dice (which i did and
i did not understand why it did not come up)

I hope they don't remove the word die, as that is the correct singular name
in English. Dice is a plural word, and changing it would suggest that the item
contains more than one die. Maybe add the word dice in brackets for those that
do not know the difference between the singular/plural English names.

Yes, please don't change it. I find it annoying when people use the plural
word dice when talking about a singular die. Currently, the only items with the
word "dice" are items that have multiple on them.

I noticed it due to having the other sticker on a door in a bulk lot, very faded.

The problem is that it appears to be on the wrong door, the left one, doh!

Would happily have supplied an image but no point, might try and find correct
door and switch sticker, sticker will peel, tried it.

One of these is incorrect as the door stickers for each door should be different,
catalogue pictures show same sticker on both doors.


Thanks for finding this error, Stuart. The incorrect image has been removed.

Stunning.

  ... that can set your day up right

A strange lone thunderhead cloud forming just as the sun crested the horizon,
perfectly centered (from our region) in front of the sunrise, created some stunning
color and light effects this morning. It was gone as the sun quickly moved past
the thunderhead formation, I felt lucky having caught the short-lived event.
Thought I'd share that luck.

Excuse the low quality pic, it was taken on the fly while driving.

  Hi!

Are all of the Lego lightsabers marked with "Lego" on the end? I have received
some that have a seam... and some with an indentation circle on the side... and
I was just wondering if any of those are authentic Legos. Were some of the earlier
lightsabers (like the old brown) made without the Lego marking? Thanks in advance.

Looking at pics online it appears the right hand one is incorrect, I don’t have
any other reference.

Does anyone know when the version with the inside corner support was used, the

I have the hollow tube version without this extra support.

Here is a quick photo that I took of three vintage sets of flowers that I had
at hand. You will notice that there are no LEGO logos visible anywhere on them.
In fact, the only visible mark on them is a single number of the other side in
the middle of the sprue designating the mold location they were made in.

Send this image and this thread to the buyer. If they won't believe an image
of real LEGO parts posted by a Catalog Admin of BrickLink, then I don't know
what they will believe. In any case, you will win your NSS easily.

Cheers,

Thanks Maxx, appreciate what you have to say, I know you’ve been through a lot.

You’re quite right about things getting worse before they get better, you don’t
turn your life around overnight, we’ll get there.

Probably at the height of the pressure on us at the moment, I’m sure many are
going through worse, my friend for one but you can only sort your own before
you can help others.

Look forward to the day Su and myself sit there knowing the worst is behind us
and toast the future, family and friends, not forgetting BL.

  I’ve a few things going on and I’m off work, two months now due to stress, moving
jobs and house not helping.

Hope the house stress gets fixed soon, that never helps.

  
Coping with this as I’m rearranging my whole approach to work and life in general,
the issue is with a dear friend and work colleague.

Rearranging your life is very important, but can give a lot of stress while you
are trying to make life less stressful…..

  
He phoned me yesterday to let me know how he is getting on, he’s had a few health
problems and been for tests.

He dropped the bombshell that the so called routine tests had shown that he has
terminal cancer and has less than twelve months.

At least 12 more months to share and be there for him, try and make the best
of it for both of you.
Also, not to diminish his impending doom, but you are also responsible for your
grandchild so try and stay positive for both your sakes.

  
Lost for words as to what to do or say, just did my best to convey my wish to
help in anyway I can, needless to say I feel helpless to help someone in this
situation.

There is nothing you can do to help him with his sickness but be there and help
him get to grips with the life he has left, not the death that is coming, we
all die

  
Got a little emotional if I’m to be honest.

Totally understandable.

As you know, I have been ill for some years now, struggled with depression because
of it, so I know nothing I say really helps, but just so you know, you and your
wife have been a great support for me.
I am sure you will help your friend too, nothing better than to enjoy life while
you can.

Try and see the bright side of things, you don’t wanne be depressed like me

I drive my daughter to work every morning. She takes the bus home to make this
happen. We leave early so that we can enjoy our breakfast (tailgate style) on
the 7 floor parking garage roof of the medical clinic she works at, which offers
a fantastic panoramic view of Western Washington, including Mt. Rainier (14,410
ft volcano) to the south. Beautiful!

I feel so damn lucky that someone as wonderful as my daughter wants to spend
time with me… plus the views ain’t bad

Distractions are good, but not entirely therapeutic. What’s going on in your
life that's bad?

Animals are usually a good source of humour, my daughters dog is Maximilian but
affectionally known as mad Max, he lives up to the name being a chocolate Labrador.

  Had the garage door open along with the side door in our shop while packing orders.
to help airflow this morning as it got up to 90 Fahrenheit and there's currently
no AC in the building.

Went to grab some bins near the door when I spot one of the cats creeping up.
She knows she's not allowed in. I stand there and glare, which is usually
enough to dissuade them. She looks at me, looks inside, then looks at me again.
Then she rebelliously shoots into the shop through the garage door and right
back out through the side door, as if mocking me.
It's a good things its a cute cat, that's all I have to say...

I suspect many of us have had buyers who are impatient, asking if the order has
been shipped yet, I’ve had the odd one ask within an hour of ordering.

  This might be of interest but its not funny. I received an order last night
at 11:30PM for one bionicle part $1.20 US. I woke this morning, printed, picked
and shipped the item but I didn't get around to updating the status until
after lunch - I have a bunch of orders today sometimes I get busy and am away
from the computer picking parts. The mailman picks up around 11:15 AM so I try
to have all paid orders ready if possible.

The person that ordered the part sent an email outside of BL, using an email-address
NOT associated with the order - it also didn't have a name attached. I sent
a reply 'who is this?' to which I got back jibberish which I did not
reply to and filed away.

The buyer just left me a neutral FB, changed the order status to completed -
yet hasn't even got the part as the mailman picked up at 11:30 this morning.


Geesh.... I don't know how I could have done any better, honestly!

I was scrolling through Twitter the other day, and some friends were going camping
in Northern California. My friend Rick posted a video of their groups campground.
He describes it all as he's panning from the dumpster, to the bathroom, to
the bear boxes they keep their food in at night, to the tables and food prep
area, and finally pans around to their van. When he's done, he whips the
camera back to the bathroom, where we now see a woman walking up the path, and
he deadpan says, "And there's my girlfriend, who had to poop. Looks like
things went pretty well." I about fell out of my chair laughing. I imagine she
left his body for the bears after she killed him.
