If I get suspicious Eqsl's I always check my LOTW contact look up before confirming or deleting.
Bands seem to be livening up lets hope that bodes well for St Paddy's day.
Guinness and Murphy's Stout to the ready. May be a little Black Bush as well.

Wisconsin QSO Party

Haven't seen any WI stations working PSK31 in QSO Party ...   :-(    That's sad.   

Guess the only way I'll get that last grid (EN65)  is to go up there and operate it myself, assuming I'll get credit for it.
Have to look into a sort of mini DXpedition ... will have to announce it (like big DXers) , solicit donations (ha-ha !) and go there only to see grid but not be able to get there because of WX and only have one engine; so will have to turn back . { for those who follow DXpeditons; others may not get it because they don't know. Besides, this is supposed to be satire or something like it.)

I commuted for 4 hrs daily for 30 years and just when I think that I had seen it all another dufus proves me wrong.  I can't tell you how many times that same thing has happened to me.  I'm travelling 60mph there is a car in the left lane just behind me, so no escape route, another one pulls up to the on ramp on the Merritt Pkwy, looks at me, waits and then decides to pull out doing 20mph.  It's a good thing I had working brakes and a horn and sometimes a finger otherwise I would have been dead a long time ago for sure.
Maybe self driving cars is the way to go because many have proven to me that they are just not up to the task.

Pulling from a side road into oncoming traffic means you need to go faster than the traffic you're moving into.  So he went from zero to maybe 30 and I had to hit the brakes to keep from rear-ending him. A mile down the road he turns off. BTW, I was the only car on the road when he decided to pull out in front of me .   Where are the lasers and photon torpedoes when you need them ???

Around here they mostly drive Audis, BMW or Mercedes with a Maserati thrown in here or there. They don't call it the Gold Coast for nothing. But it has been my experience that the one's that will always wave you on so you can enter traffic is a guy in a pickup.  The others,,,,nada.  They will see you and make you wait for them.  It happened to me yesterday.  I was waiting to turn into the local hardware store driveway, which is very small, and the oncoming traffic was backing up because of a red light.  The polite thing to do, since you aren't moving, would be to leave a little space so I could pull in and get out of the way.  A woman in a white Maserati pulled up almost directly in the way.  She had more than enough space to pull past because  there was at least a car length in front of her but nope had to stop right there my signal light notwithstanding!  I decided to drive around her, over the curb thanking the car behind her and drive in the parking lot.  That was just my way of saying THANK YOU.

Several years ago I was out East running mobile in MA and up through ME.  One thing I noticed back then was the it was much easier to get into Europe.

While I was waiting I turned on the radio and made an effortless contact with F6HCP (Bernard).  100% copy both ways.  It was like the old days.  After that I wandered up 20m and saw JA7OUV!  I can count on two fingers the times that I have even seen JA stations here on the East side.  I called a number of times just for the heck of it but he either faded or went QRT.  Must find a way to spend more BITC.

Completely OT on the 070 reflector, but I wanted to agree with Jim K5SP on the biscuits and gravy.

Having been raised through adulthood in the East Tennessee/SW Virginia/Smokies area, our most prized meat is what we call "country ham".  That's a crafted ham that is rubbed with salt and maybe a little pepper several times and hung out in the open air to cure.  It has a very distinctive taste and sliced thin as bacon makes the very best gravy for biscuits as well as seasoning meat. My great delight this Christmas was receiving a country ham from my sister who still lives in the area.  Better still my native born Norwegian wife makes biscuits that are every bit as good as any I've had-go figure.  Even my hillbilly dad said so.  I consider myself a very blessed man!

The problem with biskits 'n gravy in some diner is that they never give you enuff gravy. I always have to ask for more---and then they charge you extra.

Having been raised through adulthood in the East Tennessee/SW Virginia/Smokies area, our most prized meat is what we call "country ham".  That's a crafted ham that is rubbed with salt and maybe a little pepper several times and hung out in the open air to cure.  It has a very distinctive taste and sliced thin as bacon makes the very best gravy for biscuits as well as seasoning meat.
