    BOO is in 7th heaven with a new rawhide chew from this mornings grocery shopping .....maybe I am 'vip' after all (?) and that's what the little blue icon is after my user name. I thought it had something to do with this 'kin' thing. It's beyond the range of my ageing visual acuity. I have only it, while you have the same plus what looks like a 'chess-man'.
    Yeah the "Chess" piece signifies Moderators and the blue diamond is for Tapatalk VIP

    OK thanks for that - I guess the VIP thing must have been one of my numerous attempts to go 'ad free' on this app. The 'kin thing' must be the smaller ie really miniscule blue dot on the right hand side of posts...I'll go back to my 'VIP' hammock, or chair, never smug, not that 'hierarchy' is meaningful to me here under the coconuts

    Heck! Before I retired I figured there was truth to the rumor that the 'Gold Leaf' dots & leaf insignia on the bill of my work Hat were braille so that ageing Captains could identify their correct Cap ( was your term 'Cover'?) - before stepping from the cockpit to greet passengers etc. How was I to know?...

    Apparently, TapaTalk is now cutting the resolution of posted images way down. A 1242x2688 wallpaper is now cut to 296x640. That's ridiculous! Not sure what they're trying to achieve with the changes in image posting. But it sucks really bad.

    So far so good. Dorian should pass reasonably directly this evening or tonight. Fortunately it appears a small storm and is moving fairly quickly. It will ( hopefully) NOT be at hurricane strength yet, until it crosses the island chain & heads west out over the Caribbean Sea.
    Thanks for asking and do keep us in thought and prayer as weather issues are always to be taken very seriously... I'll check-in tomorrow if possible.

    Probably another few hours for the full effect to arrive. Now just a good breeze & a few off and on showers.

    You shouldn't have a problem with surge. That will be on the other side of the island. Hopefully, it won't too bad.

    Yes. - the East coast is our Lee Shore & all which goes with.....after passage of a system if there is a residual westerly flow for a day or so when the system moves out into the Caribbean Sea, it can get rough here with undercurrent issues. But surge if any is minimal. We did lose most of our beach post 'Harvey' Aug 2017 though. But it was back within a month -Then Maria took it away again..

    All concerns noted and gratefully appreciated. I'd think there is material to open a thread about the upside and downsides of tropical life, one which wouldn't include ads for 'Sandals Resorts' and the like as they only relate to one side of island experience and culture. Yes, especially with the trickledown of climate change, a few of the downsides have indeed gotten worse, but we are still talking 'a few' brief encounters ( yep - I know it takes but one....) with storm threats. When compared to Midwestern Tornadoes, or West Coast Earthquakes, or some of the Blizzards which are factors up north, I think we do pretty well in general by comparison -Yes, we are realistically small and isolated which really can limit recovery and rescue resources, and one would be very naive to think that beach parties, calypso music and good rum are even a main day to day focus other than for vacationing tourists. In reality, economic issues are generally more frequent stressors than weather.....
    From the point of view of this forum, the tools discussed & debated with vigour for communication and awareness are so so much improved, even over the last decade, that simple situational savvy provide a comfort zone of available information and available options when things start to look sour. Tomorrow ( or maybe Wednesday at worst) I'll go back to a couple of hours pushing a lawnmower, then it's Kindle App & hammock' time

    Do these photos in specific threads change? I've had the same photos for a while. I thought they was supposed to change with the most recent photo post. They use to.
