Sue, you can try to put your video on RVM2RVM if the problem is with the forum.

Marty, Thanks! you have given me much to consider including an explanation of Midgard. That is the name my SIL chose for his internet domain.

Higher-order rainbows

In addition to the common primary and secondary rainbows, it is also possible for rainbows of higher orders to form. The order of a rainbow is determined by the number of light reflections inside the water droplets that create it: One reflection results in the first-order or primary rainbow; two reflections create the second-order or secondary rainbow. More internal reflections cause bows of higher orders—theoretically unto infinity.[42]"

Hmmm, if we ponder (reflect) more, are we of a higher order in rainbowology?

The thesaurus says colorful is a synonym as is multihued, mottled, dappled,and flecked. The antonym is monochrome.

That's all I got for now...maybe that will put more mutant minds a muddling.
I have been pondering but out of my element since Tuesday. The hotel us OK - but we miss home.

Now on to ponder where we shall wander next. It's cold enough here that moving on is in order.

May I suggest a little north by northwest and a connecting ferry ride?

BTW I just added three more solar panels to our collection and hopefully I will get them installed within the week so we can have them in place for the up island adventure we are heading to weekend after next.

Hard to believe we are going camping again.

I use the same type facility here, Fl/Western Star but they have a specific RV mechanic that works on RV. Nice for me. I wish it were an Oasis shop but they still give me the FCCOC discount.

R U a mutant

Started this last day of w**k a little different today. I drove the MH to work saving me two hrs of time after w**k today. Jackie and our DGD will drive the Jeep to my w**k place and we will start a fabulous week of fun.

Beep beep... make room on the rainbow. T minus 3 hours and we head South, look out Florida here we come.
