  1. I just finished off the other half of the pie! (and I'm blaming T0SHEA. Had to eat it before PI day was over)
  2. I'm OK with the shrimp, but broccoli does not go on pizza. Steamed with cheddar sauce as a side dish, but not ON the pizza.
  3. I don't know that Ive ever seen a Tim Hortons. Do all of them look similar? If they got the building outside done, maybe the signs up, everyone could see that it's a Tim Hortons (or will be as soon as it's finished).
  4. I'd waymark the sign as it is now, and post another picture after it is finished, like the Grand Opening, with all the streamers and flags and such.
  5. As I said, this is a map of where I think people are, either from their profile (if they say where they are from) or from the waymarks they make. It's just to give me a hint of where currently active waymarkers might be located, so that I can see if they would be in the flight path of the ISS for a possible sighting. Now, if I contact them and they say "No, we are now at XXXX" I'll change it. Or, if as FamilieFrohme has done, someone contacts me with their correct city, I'll update. Otherwise, it is my "best guess".There are a few waymarkers that I have no idea where they might be -- FamilieFrohme was one, WalksFarTX is another.
  6. up to 308 pins on the map. and I updated the color code
  7. I hope you did a News Article Location for the town.
  8. it is getting disgusting, the stuff that is being accepted now. This category should be closed!
  9. I have a waymark just like that -- a city/town hall (Waymark Code: WMJK5P). About a year after I made the waymark, they bought a new building and moved. I changed the original waymark to read that it has been updated and moved; and marked it [-Legacy-], then posted the new location as a new waymark. This leaves the history of the town, that the town hall had been at a different location. The other option, just as good, is to just change the long description to tell about the old location, then put the info about the new location. Both options are good, just your preference.
  10. you could try to work out a sighting with yukionna and/or FOP_cacher. They should be on path with you, and far enough away. And there is a pass tomorrow at 9:34pm. Better get to work quickly.
  11. well, it's showing up correctly now. I had been jumping back and forth between cities, I guess I confused the computer. Logged out of everything and started again. Seems to be OK. Thanks Max and 99 for checking
  12. I am trying to set up an ISS Sighting for July 21, 22:29:32 75°, traveling NW to SE over OKC. When I put in Denver CO for some other waymarkers and have Heavens Above show visible only passes, it doesn't show the pass. But, if I change it to ALL PASSES, it shows the pass at 21:27:44 72°. Similar problem over Twin Falls, ID, 21:25:41 53°. The ground tracks show the passes as visible. Do I have something set incorrectly, or am I reading this wrong? Can someone else check these passes out and see if they are OK for a sighting for me, please. I always use HA set as visible only, but if this is a bug I will start checking all passes and make sure I don't miss any.
  13. the 88 number (now 90) is the number of visits in the system. Six in NJ Hist Markers, 6 in Signs of History, 4 in Abstract Sculptures, 3 each in This Old Church, Car Part Sculptures and Dated Buildings.Cornerstones, 2 each in 14 categories and 1 each in another 37 categories. Add all that up and it is 90. I've tried to get the 71 visits, and can't figure out what that means. And no telling why it takes time for visits to show up. Wait until you start posting - that takes from minutes to months! Lee in El Reno, OK
  14. see if that helps and, I've put the list of names in pretty-much alphabetical order.
  15. OK, I admit it. I have too much time on my hands. I was, once again, trying to find some ISS Sighting virgins to try to get to play. I got tired of going back and forth, looking up where folks waymark at (guessing that would be where they live). So, I went in and marked where folks had already posted a ISS Sighting, and then went to my old Forums postings welcoming new waymarkers. I looked up the new waymarkers and put a dot on my guess at their location. Wow, I can see where a whole bunch of us are at. Map web address - https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?hl=en&mid=1R87HD0kXnED21L9pMNr1STXBVaxGSDiU&ll=35.19677836257868%2C-74.57435702868577&z=3 I don't want to hear about invading someone's privacy. I got this off Waymarking.com. These people posted the info, I am taking it that they WANT it to be seen.
  16. 71 and raining here again (71 is 20C or so, right?)
  17. I just deleted a visit to one of my waymarks. I could immediately tell that the uploaded picture was just a screen capture and zoom of my own photo. And, this is the only visit to ANY waymark in Oklahoma from a person from Arizona.I find it hard to believe they came from AZ to OK and only went to the corner of Phillips and 66 for a waymark visit. (Notice, I am playing nice. No names involved.)
  18. I'd try Dated Architectural Structures Multifarious
  19. It's been raining for about 3 days -- highs only in the mid 80s
  20. I was thinking about some of the restaurants on the Gulf coast. The restaurant is on stilts over the water, but the entrance door and front of the building is on the beach
  21. there was a news article just in the past couple of weeks in Oklahoma City. They are planning a similar Wendy's over I-35 in Moore, OK, just south of OKC. One of us here in the OKC area will get that one quickly, if the category passes. Another question -- does it have to go completely across the road, trail, whatever? Or just be on one side and go over? Would buildings on boardwalks be OK (as they could be considered on a bridge/pier, and the bridge/pier would not be OK)?
  22. One problem here ... roads - OK. Rail - OK. Hiking path - OK. Then we have ----- waterways. That will have bridges, oil derricks, utility easements (electric, natural gas, water), and just about anything else! It either goes over or under! That'll be a bear to write in the description.
