Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for sending the images of the remaining 2012 lodge events patches for Eswau Huppeday.

All three patches continue with the Big Foot theme the lodge has chosen to use this year.  The Spring Fellowship patch was issued this past weekend.    The other two items are yet to be issued.

Two new issues have recently come from Eswau Huppeday Lodge.  They are their 2012 Elangomat patch and their most recent Beaver Day patch.   The Elangomat patch features Big Foot.  On the Beaver Day patch we can see the poor beaver could not avoid being caught under the foot of the roving Big Foot.   Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for these images.

I am told each brother can earn one of each of these patches.   Extras are not sold.

The listing data for these items are after the jump:

This won’t be news for those who were at the Dixie Fellowship (SR-5 Conclave) last weekend.   Eswau Huppeday has recently issued two more flaps.     One is a new standard issue.   The other is the lodge’s Dixie delegate flap.     Thanks again to Jimmy Arthurs for these.

The Dixie “Delewet” flap follows upon the watery theme the lodge is using this year and already depicted on this year’s activity patches.     Observant readers familiar with this lodge’s issues will notice several allusions to design elements found on this lodge’s earliest flaps.

Lodge 560: Cooking Up More…

Eswau Huppeday 560 J15?

Eswau Huppeday 560 J15?

This is another new issue from the treasure trove of images sent me by Jimmy Arthurs.   Eswau Huppeday recently issued their   newest cook team patch.       Except several significant color changes, this patch is identical in design to the previous Cook Team patch, listed on this site as “J14?”.

I’m waffling on how to label the border color for this patch.   In my opinion it should be a goal of any descriptive system to describe items so that they can be readily identified.   (Don’t wind me up here… please)     A principle of parsimony should apply.   This could mean that the labels, such as of colors, may not be the most technically accurate if such accuracy only complicates identification of patches.     My eyes see something like “copper” as an accurate, but confusing description, possibly more reflective of how I see things than actual color. Keeping that in mind, the easy answer for the border color on this issue is “red brown”, RBR.

Jimmy Arthurs also recently sent word of two patches from Eswau Huppeday’s Allowelendam chapter that were not yet on this site.   Once again, thanks to him for his help.

The first of these, issued in 2008,   is similar in design to the patch previously listed as “R1?” except for some changes in color.     The most easily described change is the change in border color from brown to turquoise.     The second patch was issued for the chapter’s 2009 Allowelendam Corp (sic).

The listing data for these issues are as follows:

Eswau Huppeday lodge recently issued their 2010 Spring Fellowship and Elangomat patches.   They continue their custom of yearly themes for their events and special issue pieces with a rather “wet” theme this year.   Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for these images.

Since it is neither tied to nor names a particular event the Elangomat patch is listed within the body of lodge issues.     The Spring Fellowship patch takes its place within the lodge events issues.     Listing data for these are as follows:

Eswau Huppeday lodge has been issuing a CSP for the last several years for Camp Bud Schiele.     In 2009 the lodge followed 2008′s precedent and issued a second CSP for camp staff.     Thanks again to Jimmy Arthurs for word and images of these issues.

2.5 Weeks and Counting

UPDATE: Home internet service was finally restored on 25 February. Some mail may have been lost, but all is well going forward, at least for now.

Still no home internet service.

Today was the day that Time Warner was supposed to restore my internet. The appointment was made over a week ago. They knew my line was on the ground. They were supposed to call before coming. They never called.

Turns out they did come to the service call. Without ever coming to my house all the technician did is verify that my line is on the ground. After calling customer no service they verified that is all the tech was ever going to do. When will Internet be restored? Customer no service has no idea but tried to assure me they are working hard on it. I was given the standard story about working hard in my neighborhood and big equipment being needed... yadda, yadda, yadda.

Internet Outage Continues

The "Great Time Warner Internet Outage of 2014" continues for me at home, as my cable line is still on the ground in my backyard. Time Warner will not be able to have someone out to my place to restring it until March 22nd.

I'll note the electric company was able to restore access in our part of NC, including the restringing of lines, in a fraction of that time. I look forward to the day when I can "fire" the cable company monopoly!

In the mean time, I am unable to much of any work with this site and can only sporadicallycheck OAImages mail, when I'm able to use someone else's internet connection.

I hope this doesn't impact my ability to continue an annual tradition on this site which is rapidly approaching! Read the Full Post

Internet Outage

As a result of the recent ice storm, I have been without internet access since early last Friday morning. Power didn't come back on at home until yesterday (Sunday 3/9) afternoon. Since my cable line is on the ground in my back yard, I expect I will be without internet for several more days.

No email sent to me at any OAImages address has been seen by me since Thursday night. As far as I know, all are still on the server, but I will not receive them until home internet access is restored. Read the Full Post

Logging in to Members Area

Over the past several days I have been deactivating userids for the members area that have long since expired. I had been very lax about keeping up with this and allowed users to keep using that area long past the expiration date of their membership. If you suddenly find yourself unable to log on, the most likely reason is that your membership has expired. You can write me at jpannell@oaimages.com to confirm.

You can also reactivate your membership at this url:

http://www.oaimages.com/rejoin_member.shtml

For all users, the expiration date of your membership subscription is stated in the upper left hand corner of all lodge pages within the members area. If it has expired or is about to do so, please considering renewing. There is a link in the upper right corner of lodge pages, as well as at the bottom of all pages in the members area, to do this.

Site Maintenance

I have been doing some behind the scenes site maintenance this weekend in an effort to fix a problem that has been vexing me for some time now with the inventory options within the members area.

Some members, especially more active ones , were having difficulties with large number of duplicate records being added to their inventory. No data was lost or changed, just records would be duplicated a large number of times. This would quickly result users' inability to add or change their inventory. I made some changes to how that data is being stored on the server that may have solved that problem.

Northern Michigan / Wisconsin Merger

I missed this one amidst all the recent mergers. Jeff Gruenke just announced on Patch-l that Awase and Ag-Im lodges have merged to form Kon Wapos lodge. There was no news about what number, if any, the lodge might use. Their totem will be the snow shoe hare.

There is no word yet on any patches for Kon Wapos lodge. Read the Full Post
