warn 'everyone' and exit('ASAP') if ($Rita->category > 3) and ($monk{'location'} =~ /Gulf Coast/);

      Our attempt to flee to safer grounds this morning resulted in a wasted half tank of gas that only got us 1 mile down the Interstate. A normal 4 hour drive to Dallas was reported as taking some evacuees +24 hours. With very little gasoline in the city we realized that we'd soon be destitute and still in the Hurricane's path if we continued on our exodus so we decided to stay behind and try our luck at home.
      $_->wish('luck') foreach @evacuee;

        That's what I was thinking earlier today, all those people stuck on the highway are going to be "Sitting Ducks" for Rita. I wish all of you good luck. Being a spiritual man, I will pray for your safety.

[erix]: pretty :)
[Your Mother]: Yep, LanX, here is the reverse operation: perl -CSD -MEncode -MMIME::Base64 -E 'say decode_utf8( decode_base64(" 4oGZ"))'
[LanX]: Thanks Many thanks YM... it was already supposed to be encoded, I'll see tomorrow
[Your Mother]: I am entirely skeptical the wall will happen… but this country does love its boongdoggles now and then. :P
[Your Mother]: Did I tell or show you? There is a leucistic Turkey Vulture around here all the time. I have a couple decent pictures.
[Your Mother]: Pure white (well, dirty white :P)
[erix]: as a kid I had a painted bunting -- beautiful
[Your Mother]: I would love to see one. It would be a lifer.
[Your Mother]: Wait… maybe I did see one last year…
[Your Mother]: I saw what I thought was a Cuban trogon but they are too impossibly rare / never seen in the US. That guy might have been what I actually saw.
