Bunged up with Hay Fever, so I will be not doing  much today, staying indoors to keep dry, bearing in mind there is live cricket on television to watch.

Have fun.

Seeing as I woke up at 6 on a bloody Sunday I'm going to go to work for a few hours and get all the tedious dull paperworky crap dealt with whilst nobody else is around, that way I won't have to listen to their annoying chatter and won't have to pretend to be nice.

Yes... yes.. I actually pretend I'm nice and everybody believes it - Would you imagine?!

Actually, if Gis see's fit to talk to us after we've made fun of her plans I would be curious as to whats actually in Reading - I've always imagined it as Watford without the annoying Penge cast-aways.

Well to put you both straight!
They have been spending a lot of money on Reading over the last 10 years or so. It is FANTASTIC for shopping now. With two new malls and a good high street. They have redeveloped the whole of the canal area so it is all restaurants and bars now. However it also has some fabulous architecture, quite unusual as it is all very dark red brick with lots of ornate carving. They also have these chequerboard effect buildings like the church in the centre of the city. Just for you i have attached some pictures........

For the past 2 days, I have felt like I have a knife in my back. Carlos has been trying to crack it for me but it is right between my shoulder blades which is the hardest place to crack. I hope it will work itself out soon because it is weeks before I go to see the chiropractor.

To our surprise, the Big Dog is in the water and the mast is up-YAY!!!!! But she still needs a lot of work. The hatch cover still needs to be repaired (water is getting in) and hopefully that will be done within the next few days. The keel is stuck, which needs to be unstuck. The boom still needs to be put up but that only takes about 10 minutes or so to do. The galley pump needs to be replaced and she needs a major cleaning. Carlos & I spent about 2 hours scrubbing her down and even though it is 100% improvement, she still isn't very clean-and that was only the outside. We still need to get inside and get rid of the spider webs and we did get rid of 1 wasp nest-hopefully, there aren't any more. With a little luck, we can take her out within a week or two.


Arrrr, we swabbed the deck, matey.  ;D ;D

that's so cool. A Real Life Meeting in Utah of all places. I've been to Salt Lake City for a major soiftball tournament back in 1986. there were 168 teams playing and we took 28th place.  I can't wait to see the pics Ash  :)

let's see, I worked today, only 7-1/2 hours instead of the usual 8 because i needed to be at my softball game which we won dramatically in the last inning. We were losing 20-16 and scored 5 runs in the bottom of the last inning to win 21-20. I had a 3 run home run earlier in the game. On a sad note, a young player on the other team got hurt badly after he scored a run and failed to stop in time and slammed into the wooden backstop, breaking both wrists and maybe his arm. It was sick. poor kid.  :\'(  he's only about 25 and it was so weird because we've played here for many years and nobody has ever not stopped in time but it looked like he was running too fast and out of control and had to be taken off in an ambulance. once they took him we continued with the last inning and my team won.

Rarely have I had a more frustrating day than I had, today.

Too much shtuff to deal with, and too many feelings of attitude and blame.
At one point, I had to retreat into my cave for a bit, and let things loose.

I will be surprised if I'm not half-bald by the time everything is through.

I hope it will be all worth it.

Hey, hey throwing yourself down the stairs is my trick!
You have my sympathy I know how painful it can be.  :-\\


Work today. Yesterday I discovered yet another huge damp patch in our sitting room, the wall is actually bulging out. It's right near the electric socket where we have our computer etc plugged in. I'm completely paranoid now as it turns out my sisters fire was due to damp in the wall causing the electrics to short.
I'm waiting for the rental agency to get back to me about it. I'm hoping one of them will come round on monday when I am at home to see it. The only previous soloution we were offered was to fill the air brick in the wall with silica....like that's going to work!?! The *problem* is they laid a new concrete drive and it's higher than the damp course, but will they accept that??

Damp inside can have a number of causes.  It might be poor ventilation and cold walls causing condensation.  Closing the air brick will make that worse.  It could be from leaking overflows or gutters/drainpipes.  Another cause is the one Gis mentions.  If the driveway has been resurfaced so that it is above the damp proof course the wall is bound to get damp - that' the whole purpose of the damp proof course.  Some plants growing against the wal sometimes causes the same problem.

I realize I'm trailing the herd, but I also wish you a speedy recovery.

There have been a few times where I've been in a store, and without realizing it, I've walked smack into a support column.
Once, I was walking, and I got distracted, and walked full-on into a fire hydrant.
Had I been just 1/4 inch to the left.....let's just say "coconut souffle" would've had a new meaning.

The weird thing is they left a channel at the side of the house so the damp course  is fine there but went right up to the house at the front!?!

Anyways the landlady's cousin called round yesterday to see the damp and the broken window in the kitchen but we were both at work. He was meant to call back later but didn't so I guess he will call round again today.

got up this morning, made some coffee and then took Diane to San Ramon by where I work to see an early 11:30am showing of Pirates of the Caribbean 3 At Worlds End. It was good, & even though his part in the movie was small, I liked Keith Richards. Johnny Depp is so good & so funny. ya gotta love Captain Jack Sparrow. afterwards, we went to a sandwich shop & shared a sandwich named Pilgrims Progress. turkey, avocado, onions, sprouts, tomato turkey, cheese, and mayo on 9 grain bread. it was good. came home & at 5pm we held a poker game from 5pm until midnight. It was fun even though I lost the first game, but in the 2nd game I took 2nd place & won ten bucks. now waiting for Julie to come home from a party & then will go to bed.

My uncle died tuesday after a long battle with cancer. Today I'm thinking about the events of the past week and thinking of what I want at my own funeral. Morbid, I know, but after the fiasco of the past few days, I've decided how important it is to let everyone know what your wishes are. I can't believe how death sometimes brings out the worst in people. Long story, but I'm sure you know where I'm going with this.


My deepest sympathies are with you.
I, too, suffered a death of someone rather close to me.
A very loyal karaoke patron, who had been suffering from cancer and couldn't handle the chemotherapy any longer, died about 5 days ago.
He was the most loyal patron I ever had- 4 yrs. worth, and refused to go to any other sessions in the area.
I considered him a friend.....not the same as an uncle, but almost.

Yes, it is important to let people know your wishes, and set them up as to be indisputable.
When I go, there are 3 specific things I want done:

1. The specific songlist I have set aside played.
2. I want to be buried in the Scottish Highlands.
3. I want a "Rebirthday Party", complete with cake.

-As for me, I have been having fun with my new Karaoke Software, that allows me to customize my own discs.
-WooT!-

the friends are over playing poker. I'm in here posting because I got ELIMINATED!!!!    :\'(  they'll be done soon & we'll start another game and then I'm kicking all their ass's!  >:(



That is the problem with Texas Hold 'Em, you get eliminated. When we play, no one gets eliminated (even when they run out of $$$ because someone will spot them-of course it will have to take a lot for them to run out of $$$ since we play penny-ante).  ;D ;D ;D

Earlier today, while I was carrying a broken water cooler to my car (to haul it to the dump), I accidentally brushed my hand against a spackled wall, scraping off a big chunk of skin on the knuckle of my third finger.  I bandaged it up really quickly without getting a good look at it, so I don't know how serious it is.  If the pain doesn't go away, I may have to visit the ER :\'(

I hope you haven't had to visit the ER yet. Hopefully it won't be too serious.

Today I went to the supermarket and then spent the day in the garden. We have had two days of sun it's a bit of a shock to the system!

Yesterday I went to work and accidentally got up an hour early without realising it. I actually got all the way to work then found it was only 8am and not 9am so I had to sit around reading the paper for an hour. I can't believe I did myself out of an hour in bed!  ::)

Then I'm the most annoying person ever.  I feel that a positive attitude gives me goals to shoot for realistically.  There is a difference between being pragmatic and being a complete downer by expecting everything to fail and being surprised when it doesn't.  You need to readjust in the event of failure (and I do plan for potential pitfalls and devise alternative strategies) so that you don't get bogged down in a rut all the time.

In a ponderous mood, today.....

Trying to sort the week out, in my head.
Also trying to enjoy the respite in the heatwave, today.

To top it off, I'm ironing out things for a trip out of town, for the weekend.
If all proceeds well, I will be celebrating my weekend in Woodland, at an SCA Event.
(The 1st one I've attended in a year.)

Pearl of wisdom for all you pessimists, and poo-pooers of optimism:

Read "The Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy", then adopt Ford Prefect's thinking.
It's healthy, nutritious, and tax-free. (Plus, if the world really DOES come to an end, you have one last party to go to!)

I don't take you for the type of positive thinking person that I find annoying.  You seem positive, yet realistic.   I'm talking about the person who has that phony cheerful "everything in the whole world is positive" attitude.  It's so fake.  And you are absolutely right about their being a difference between being pragmatic and completely negative.  My mother is the type that looks at everything negatively to the point that she never gets anything accomplished or has anything good in her life.  That is the other extreme and it is bad too.

I'd say so!

Very clever guy, but just totally unhinged, we used to hang out with him because he always had plenty of green and wasn't about to object to buying some gear and smoking it all up with him (to be honest I don't think he really had any friends) but he was totally nuts. We used to get in to fights sometimes, ya know, some guys from another town would come through and we'd all kick the s**t out of each other, but it was generally regarded that once somebody was on the floor, you left them alone.. He wouldn't... he'd be out there, stomping on guys heads and stuff, have to be dragged off, dude was just unhinged.


that's tragic, yet it may have prevented him from harming someone innocent. So there are guys who have the job of cleaning up messes like that.  sort of like The Wolf but in real life.

Feeling quite alright. Started dieting again yesterday. And I'm doing okay so far.

Dustin came home during his lunch break (I'm still here at his house, hanging out with his brother Cody and his friend Jordan). He'll get off at 8 and his mom's going to come over. I haven't seen her in forever. She got remarried yesterday or the day before. I think it's kinda odd because she just divorced Dustin and Cody's dad months ago. But good for her. We'll be going over there next weekend to hang out.

I don't know how it feels to have a stepdad, or a dad for that matter, so I wonder how Dustin feels about this.

I am beginning to dread my birthday coming.

I have been preparing for this trip most of the night, and I am the only one who shows any enthusiasm.
I understand Melissa has been dealing with stuff all day.
I really do.....but it always seems that when my birthday comes, I'm the only one who gives a %#&*@! as to if I really turn out happy.

Melissa once told me that she dreaded my birthday, because I act as if nothing is ever good enough.

One birthday that was true, and I have done my best to make amends for that behavior.
But I was raised to believe that your birthday is the one day of the year where it truly IS "all about you", and that birthdays are to be celebrated, not dreaded.

I am beginning to dread my birthday coming.

I have been preparing for this trip most of the night, and I am the only one who shows any enthusiasm.
I understand Melissa has been dealing with stuff all day.
I really do.....but it always seems that when my birthday comes, I'm the only one who gives a %#&*@! as to if I really turn out happy.

Melissa once told me that she dreaded my birthday, because I act as if nothing is ever good enough.

One birthday that was true, and I have done my best to make amends for that behavior.
But I was raised to believe that your birthday is the one day of the year where it truly IS "all about you", and that birthdays are to be celebrated, not dreaded.

(Sorry if this is rambling. My brain is erratic, sometimes.)
I think most of us have had "that one birthday"  ^    sometimes, things just don't work out like we'd like them too. I remember going to a funeral for Diane's grandmother On My Birthday!!!  that was as surreal as it can get for me and the day was not about me at all, but they still had a cake afterwards which seemed bizarre, but I appreciated the thought. I hope it turns out good Wayne, and maybe you will have to do more to make it good. heck, I threw myself a surprise party once. I even got a pic of it somewhere  ;D

Ain't that the truth! I had one birthday when I was younger where I was a complete bitch to everyone I still feel guilty about that.  :-[

Last year was not really a good one for me. It was too hot, we had moved house 2 days before and everything was in chaos, including all the problems left from the previous tenant to sort out. Ian bought me a garden lounger and I decided to just go and chill out for an hour in the shade in the garden. I went to sit in it and the back was broken! That really was the straw that broke this camels back, luckily he had also bought a large chocolate cake.  ;D

Thanks, Mike & Gissie.

The "one birthday" I refer to was 2 yrs. ago.
I was asked what I REALLY wanted. What did I want to do?
I answered, "A murder mystery thing".

On my birthday, I was informed that there was no way in hell it was happening, as the "research" showed that it cost $1,500 per, not including food.
However, there was a concert in the park close to where our place is, and it was supposed to be "Mardi Gras" themed.
We went, and there was next to no theme at all.
The band didn't show, and two guys on guitar were substituted.
I received nothing, which I figured was par for the course.
To end the night, my wife took me to a friend's karaoke session, and tried to buy me enough alcohol to salvage things.
It didn't work, and put us in the hole, for a month.

On top of this, I went to work the next day, and ended up getting suspended for 2 weeks, because someone got on the microphone and started advertising that I "needed a b-----b, for his birthday".
One of the other people thought I said it, and I got in trouble.

The point of this whole shpiel: My 30th birthday sucked, and I was blamed for all the trouble, just for being honest about what I wanted when I was asked about it, and was upset when things went to $h!t.

I can't go through that again.

damn  :o  well that sucked!  but that was then, lower expectations may help, or like I suggest, plan it yourself and do it up the way you want. I always plan my birthdays and Diane did not plan anything for me for my 50th, even though people suggested she should, & a friend had a bash for his 50th, I had themes in mind, but am picky and critical so she knew not to do anything and to let me plan it all and eventually nothing happened  ;D  which is probably what i deserved for being the way I am

Thanks. He isn't eating much but at least he is eating-which he wasn't doing yesterday (and I even gave him a couple of pieces of chicken which he LOVES).  But, he is sitting in the window with his head up which he didn't seem to have the energy to do yesterday.

We are NOT going to the boat (which I am relieved). We went around the block, looked at the sky which was very dark gray and decided it wasn't a good thing and came home.

I saw my friend Cody up against twelve rednecks, and one of them punched him hard in the face and pushed him on the pavement.  No one came to help him or anything, and it was still twelve against one, so I ran over and started yelling at them about "What the f*ck do you guys think--" at about which point I had been punched by an unseen fist.

Good boy.

You really do need to learn to fight.

Oh well, the important thing is you stood up for your mate, you didn't run, you stood your ground and had a good fight, that's always important.

Fighting is a lot of fun, but it takes a long time before you can actually enjoy it, you need to be good at fighting, which means bulking up, learning how to use your fists, learning a few dirty tricks.
A couple of favorites of mine being the forehead to the bridge of the nose, no matter how big the guy is, if you break his nose right across the bridge, he's going down for a minute or two, it hurts like hell. Another good one, kick them in the back of the knee cap, really drive your foot in there, then when they're down on their knees, throw 'em over hockey style and put the boots in to the head. If you really kick somebody as hard as you can in the jaw, you can ruin their whole month.

You're boney right? Use your elbows as much as your fists, if not more, it's like getting hit by a pointy bat.

Fighting can be a lot of fun, I'm glad you're learning.

You bet your ass. One of Pete's favorite stories to tell is when I got in to a fight with these two guys. I was about 14 or something and there were 17-18, bigger than me.. and there's two of them. I kept getting punched and going down.. and every time I'd be down on the floor they'd walk off, I'd spit out some blood and shout "I'm not done you c**ts!" so they'd come back, give me a kicking and walk off again.. and once again, I'd crawl up and shout after them. Finally Pete showed up with a couple of our guys and those two took off. But yeah, I took an absolute kicking.
Back when we used to get in to it at the football, you always knew there was a good chance you'd get your head kicked in.. and trust me, we did.

We were walking out the door and as always we do a head count-this time there were only 2. Where was the 3rd one? She likes to sit in the window of the living room but the screen isn't on very securely and sometimes we notice her sticking her nose outside before we stop her. Carlos thought that maybe she pushed the screen and went outside. So we started searching around the house. Sure enough, she was on the back porch-a bit afraid and ran from us and went under the side porch. I was armed with cat treats that she did come to so we got her inside before leaving.

On the way to the boat, we had to take the "scenic" route because they blocked off the main thoroughfare. (We find out it was because of a fire.) When we got to the marina, we find out that they didn't get to the stuff we were hoping they would (get the engine started and move the boat in a bit because we are on the last mooring and we don't have an engine on our dinghy so it is a LONG way to row). We decided to go back when they are not so busy and get those two things done for us. So, back home-another but shorter scenic route. So, we didn't get anything done but had a nice drive.

Yeah, it is absolutely worth trying that, sometimes they can just fit you in there and then. Oh and with the 'holding' of the other one, never believe them when they say things like that. Sadly they will always tell you that even when they know they have got other people already looking the place over because it keeps all the options open.

Had a weekend full of live jazz.  It was 2 of my friends from Chicago (though one is actually residing in Sedona, AZ now).  We hadn't seen Holly in about 5 years, so it was great to see her again.  I have kept in touch w/ Steve, but it was still great to see him perform.  They did some songs that we requested (Fri & Sat night).  Will try to catch Steve when he plays w/ a different group in Traverse City next weekend, which is also when I hope to catch the new HP movie.  Not doing much now.  Did some light housework and Micah is over at the campus w/ some friends so I'm just hanging at home, listening to jazz and watching tv.

I was given a special introduction, by the current Bard Of Cynagua, Roland Storm.
There were many who showed up, from great distances, because "we heard you were gonna be here, man".

I'm feeling pretty damned proud of myself.....we got the new countertops today so our kitchen sink was totally dismantled.  Since the new ones are thicker than the old ones, our sink sits lower so the pipe wasn't lining up so I cut those down that needed to be cut, got the garbage disposal hooked back up and running, the new faucet (since our old one SUCKED) hooked up and nothing is leaking :o O0  I was gonna repaint while the cabinets are off but that will have to wait until tomorrow because the installer said to wait at least 8 hours before putting anything heavy on them so the epoxy can set up.

My parents are sort of like that.  They've calmed down a bit in their old age though and in a twisted sort of way, I appreciate that they cared enough about me to yell at me constantly, although I know how you feel, wish they'd have taught me all that good stuff in a not-so-loud or violent tone of voice.

It'll be fun, Beth! You're finally on your own... And you'll do fine. ; D

And, well, you can still visit Erin! Just... not as often.

don't remind me...it's gonna suck so bad.


Erin and Beth it won't be that bad...my sister and I are best friends, very close...we just happen to live 500 miles away.

Right after I got married I moved from NY to Va..  You would think that my sister and I would have grown apart, but the opposite happened...we are closer now than we have ever been.

We talk to each other all the time and when we get together, it's like we've never been apart.

I miss her terribly a times, but I know she's always there for me, no matter what.


Best of luck. Beth!!!

Straight up, G thang. It's very pretty, and old (Haunted, maybe?! =D). It's suprisingly roomy, too. The first aprartment I looked at was one room. I mean, one room was the bedroom, living room, and kitchen (OMG, Erin, did that place have a bathroom?! I don't think it did..!! D=). The whole apartment was also smaller than my bedroom. It had beer cans laying all around, and random articles of clothing here and there. Turns out, the guy just got carted off to jail, and he didn't clean anything. It was also a crackhouse. Nice.

One of my friends called me tonight around one thirty in the morning, ending up waking up my dad...  She was in...serious pain.  She was crying throughout the whole conversation.  She had apparently been making herself soup when some of it popped at her finger and immediately began eating away the skin off her knuckle, which was extremely painful.  She said this happened around nine, and that the pain was actually getting worse.

Of course...I'm...not a good comforter at all, nor do I know much about how to remedy this type of thing, so there was a lot of concerned silence on my part followed by suggestions that she might call a doctor for instance or sentiments like, "I feel so bad for you." but it was almost painful just to listen to her talk about how much it hurt.

I really don't understand how something that was supposedly fit for consumption could eat away human flesh like that and leave such long lasting scalding pain.  She said she didn't get around to eating it until hours later, but imagine how bad it would have been if she had tried a spoonful of it instead of it just popping on her finger.

I actually brought that up--I was like, "I can't imagine how anything that hot could be fit for consumption..." and she told me it wasn't until hours later she started eating it.  I asked her, "So you ate your attacker?" and she was still sobbing and saying that she was pissed off at the soup for burning her but she ate it anyway because she was really hungry.

On the plus side, I did some great shouting today, like a half an hour ago, after I'd spent almost 30 minutes typing up my status report for the week (essentially quantifying unidentifiable achievements) I accidentally closed the word box and lost everything (since when does it just close without a save prompt!) I unleashed such a torrent of hatred that I was unable to actually form words and simply fluctuated the pitch and tone of my shouting in a vain sort of attempt at syllables.

Damn right. I've always thought Ben Folds would be good live. I know that John Mayer is a great guitarist, but I can't say I care too much for his music.

It's been a quiet weekend for me. Friday was insane, no trains due to flooding so I managed to catch a lift home with my brother though I did get roped in to doing 2 hours work in his office first!  ::)

The rainfall was incredible and the flood damage in areas of Oxfordshire is extreme. Our phone was out but as we live on a hill so only our garden flooded a bit thankfully. The house we lived in last year was flooded out so I'm glad we moved when we did!!
Local kids were stuck in schools, my nephew had to wade waist deep through water to get home! Ian's warehouse is under 3 feet of water so he's not sure what's going to happen on monday and there is more rain to come............

Same here.. if you appreciate good guitar, especially blues and funk-driven, he's very good live. He tends to extended introductions and jam towards the end.. he took that "Gravity" song and made it 9 minutes long.. and it didn't suck as much.

Last night, my CD+G machine took a dive on me.

I spent 1 1/2 hrs. trying to get the frippin' thing to work, then had to hustle back to Oroville to borrow a loaner.
Good news is, I was able to salvage the night.
Bad thing is, I have to stick it in the shop.

The owner was very understanding, and has been far more encouraging than I thought.
I have tremendous respect for the man.

Man, my throat is still killing me, although I really haven't made it better by shouting a lot today. On the plus side, I did some great shouting today, like a half an hour ago, after I'd spent almost 30 minutes typing up my status report for the week (essentially quantifying unidentifiable achievements) I accidentally closed the word box and lost everything (since when does it just close without a save prompt!) I unleashed such a torrent of hatred that I was unable to actually form words and simply fluctuated the pitch and tone of my shouting in a vain sort of attempt at syllables.

Took the family up to One Mile Park in Chico, where they have converted part of the river into a swimming canal, with movable dam, for the wintertime.

After, we ate dinner @ China Star. (I love their Seafood Special!)

Went to Wal-Mart, and I was gotten a belated birthday present.
(I am told that after Melissa gets her bike, I'll be getting other present)

Finished off with grocery shooping, and kept it under budget.

We had a good week's holiday in Lanzarote.  We took a bus tour of the volcano area one day and another day we went in a trip underwater in a submarine.  The rest of the time was spent either by the pool or on the beach.

We got home v early Friday morning, had a bit of sleep, sorted out and packed the cars then attempted to drive to South Wales to take the mother in law home.  Traffic was very bad on one motorway, I managed to dodge round using a different route and get to where we were meeting up for dinner.  Dai was stuck in the traffic queue.  He gave up and turned around to go home in the end.  I also headed back because we'd heard that the next motroway we wanted to take was about 3 foot under water in places!  We tried again on Saturday and got to South Wales without any problems.

Last week of work to get through.

Wait, if it was recalled, why did you have to purchase a new one?  Didn't the company replace it?

No, he's also convinced I'm overweight. Until I drop 25 pounds, he said I'm overweight (BMI is 22.1, it would be 18.5 before he would be satisfied.)

Aside from the fact you can't lie to my father (he's really good at picking up on that sheesh, even with random strangers and people at work), and he told me on weekends he plans to race me. It's a 3 mile run, so he'll know if I'm not doing it based on how well I keep up.

Aside from the fact you can't lie to my father (he's really good at picking up on that sheesh, even with random strangers and people at work), and he told me on weekends he plans to race me. It's a 3 mile run, so he'll know if I'm not doing it based on how well I keep up.


I don't understand why parents care so much about their kids' weight... You'd think they'd teach you the best is on the inside and all that.

I am reading it a few pages a night to my daughter. It should take us about two months or so!  I am finding it very hard not to borrow the book and read it though when she is in bed.

;D There's no "best" with my parents... it's an asshole in side the shell of a fatass.

Personally, I haven't seen too many people worried about their kids weight like this.. a lot of kids I know play at least one sport, so it usually negates any worry their parents might have. I dislike sports, and so my parents worry doesn't have much to counteract.. you would think my 3 miles a day running would shut them up, but then accusations start I'm not running "hard enough".

I'd print out a bunch of growth charts to show him you're not in the least bit overweight.  At 18.5 you're on the borderline for being UNDERweight on the National Institute of Health chart.  And, according to my sons' pediatrician, if you're over 16, you should check the adult chart, not the kid's chart.

I worry about my older son's weight, but not obsessively like TG's dad.  My son's 12 and is almost as tall as I am and weighs just as much so, according to the kid's BMI chart, he's at risk of becoming obese.  However, he's probably the most healthy of my kids and rarely gets sick.  On the other hand, my 9 year old is borderline UNDERweight (he's at the 5.2 percentile, 5 & under is considered underweight). :-\\

Like you said, though, the important thing is that my kids are pretty good kids and that's what's important :)

Even though it's usually us that are our own harshest critic on cosmetic things, it feels terrible when someone else dictates that. For the record, I don't think anyone is overweight unless they're like 50-70 pounds over the typical weight. And even if they are, it in no way reflects on them as a person or their looks. Anyone who says otherwise is an "ashcroft".


awww...and it's SO hard to throw those kinds of things away sometimes....BUT, ya gotta do what you gotta do! ;) BTW, I'll see you tonight after 9:30. :)


It's everyone's own choice, but I totally recommend keeping stuff like that. It's irreplacable and has sentimental value which is only gonna grow over time. I wish I'd save more stuff, even if I still have quite a bit.

For instance, I think I've told you how my dad made a series of mix tapes for us c. 1987 (especially for my mom, but it was with music we all liked....mostly '80s pop with some oldies and classic rock too). Well, inbetween the songs, he did these psuedo DJ announcements, sometimes with character voices "introducing" the song, like Mr. T.

Point being, there were a few instances where he had me say stuff, which usually made me cringe when it was played back. Most of those tapes got eaten or lost not too long later. But a couple of them survived into 1993, and when I copied them, I cut myself out of them (when I was 11-12 listening to something from when I'd been 5 was embarrasing I guess, lol). Since the originals died not too long after, I could slap myself for that now.

Well, it's not that there only needs to be one for each century, it's just that the major antichrists tend to be few and far between, so it wouldn't be expected.

Now, there are several antichrists in any given time period, just most of them don't accomplish as much as they should.

If we both can be the antichrists, I think that would be ideal.

Mine is more with appearance.. there IS muscle weight, after all.. I define it by, like, a visible protruding stomach or empty fat folds... some people are naturally built bigger.. but when you just aren't taking care of yourself, it's overweight.

I'm nostalgic for my under 14 years, really. Anything after that, while old enough to be cool, just feels too much like the present. Since that was also about when the Internet began getting common and the beginning of the tech obsession can be traced back to, it really goes hand in hand. Like especially pre-1997 and in a smaller way, up to 9/11.

The only major thing I miss about high school (other than some little daily stuff) is that it was closer to the past. 1989 was still only 9 years ago in 1998, not like another era the way it is now.

I take somewhat of offense to that remark, sir.
I happen to take fairly good care of myself, and yet I'm in the realm of 70-100 lbs. overweight, by the experts' standards.
A good portion of this is due to the fact that most exercises require being on your feet, and due to my birth defect, my feet can't handle the abuse on a constant basis.

I personally believe that the experts' standards are bollocks.
They judge things on the grounds that all bodies are created and shaped equally.

He takes more after hubby, though....the middle one takes after me, he's 9, about 4'8" and weighs a whopping 63# :o

Sig is on his way down to begin finishing what he started.  He is going to finish the window he put in, and replace the shingles. He is very good at this stuff, but starts, gets in the middle, then for months does nothing.  Drives me nuts.  Just when I am ready to get someone in he gets busy on it.

Tell me about it, Carol!
My daughter, Teela, is 6, and 4'2, and around 75 lbs. When she graduated Kindergarten, she was the tallest in her class, and the 2nd tallest in the grade!
She already wears size 10-12 clothes!

Most people believe her to be 8-10.





Megan is wearing those sizes too.  She was one of the tallest in her class, only one girl and one boy (he was actually 7) taller than her.  I have no idea where her height is coming from, certainly not me.  ;D

People are very surprised when I tell them how old she is.  Not only is is big, she's smart and talks like a grown up.  ;D





that's how it is with Vaughn too. He's nowhere near being considered fat...but he just turned 5 in May...he already wears nearly a size 1 shoe...he wears a size 7 clothing...and he weighs nearly 60 lbs.


Hunter is a big boy too, he's 3 1/2 and wear a size 10 shoe (toddler size) and weighs almost 40 pounds!!

No wonder my back hurts.  ;D

FINALLY got rid of my car that hasn't run (for various reasons) yesterday, they towed it for free and gave me $60 for it.  I'm sure they'll make that back in parts (it was towed to/by a salvage yard), all that I care is that it is out of my hair.  It would have cost way way too much to fix.  :\'(



That reminds me. I still need to finish cleaning my car out and then call to have them come and take it away. Carlos has been on me for YEARS to do it.  :-[


As for me, I have already done 3 loads of laundry-all blankets/sheets (and I have several more to go-but not today), a load of dishes. We will be going to the boat for a bit. The kids are coming this weekend and I want everything to be ready for them. And I have to call one of my best friends today to wish her a happy birthday. Busy, busy day.

I don't understand why parents care so much about their kids' weight... You'd think they'd teach you the best is on the inside and all that.



That's why I try not to even though I am concerned about Micah's health.  She is 17, has never been thin (but then again neither have I), and has always played on the offensive line in football.  However, I am concerned that since she will probably not be suiting up this year, she should cut back on her food.  I try to be delicate about it because she is the only teenage girl I have ever met who has positive self image about her body.  However, my mom and my aunt have taken it upon themselves (both of them overweight as well) to come down on me for not coming down on Micah.  Just for the record, I don't keep junk food in the house and she loves salads and other healthy foods.  However, that isn't to say we never eat anything unhealthy (duh, right?), we just try to keep it to a minimum.  Everyone is worried that she will develop diabetes and other health issues.  I am, too, but I try to be careful how I approach the subject.

I take somewhat of offense to that remark, sir.
I happen to take fairly good care of myself, and yet I'm in the realm of 70-100 lbs. overweight, by the experts' standards.
A good portion of this is due to the fact that most exercises require being on your feet, and due to my birth defect, my feet can't handle the abuse on a constant basis.

I personally believe that the experts' standards are bollocks.
They judge things on the grounds that all bodies are created and shaped equally.
That, as we all know, is simply not the case- different bone densities, different metabolisms, different muscular structures.

Kindly disregard the experts.


I think he means that if you are fat because you don't take care of yourself, then it's overweight.

My mother had a hip replacement last year. It is a fair routine op. But, it does take a while to heal. I'm sure he won't be as grumpy as he starts to heal (unless he has always been grumpy  ;) )

What are some things you'd like to do while in NY?  You won't be able to do it all in one weekend, so it's best that you choose a few specific things.

Month into having the thing, the alternator's shot.. gotta get a new one. Browsing the Yellow Pages right now seeking a mechanic to get it done for a reasonable price (the well-known mechanics in our town are ridiculous price-gougers, so you can't go to the obvious ones).

What pisses me off is that I get this car (from family, of all people), and within a month I'm looking at (for the alternator and a few other minor repairs my family neglected to tell me it would need), at the very least 300 dollars of repairs. Lovely.

Did you pay for the car or was it a freebie?  If it was a freebie then 300 bucks for a car isn't bad.  Of course when you get anything used you have to figure in at least 500 to do stuff in the first six months regardless.  That is from someone who has never had a new car in her life, so I know the routine.

lol mine is broke down too. I was just thinking how I haven't had to do anything really with this car in a year I've had it and there it goes. I don't know first I noticed a leak of what appeared to be a power steering line, but the brakes are soft and just not right either. I cut the line and put a temporary hose on over that and put some power steering fluid in. However oddly I guess theres something wrong with the brakes too at the same time. I'm gonna have to take the damn thing in. My dad looked at the front and back pads and shoes and they look to be fine and there's no other leaks. I don't know what the hell the problem is. He said maybe a "power booster" or something, idk even know what that is.

My dad gave me a choice: either he'd give me $ to fix the tranny, or I could junk it and move in with him in Brooklyn.  He did point out that the car seemed not that well kept and that the engine COULD fail at some point and that he could not afford that or a new car.  So he kinda swayed me in the direction of the city.  Never regretted it.


Good deal.

I remember when I needed some work doing to the old Landrover, my Dad said "Yeah sure, you can use the spare van as long as you need." (He always had 2 or 3 due to running a business) Hahaha, I dug deep in my pockets and got the work done, a van that weighed more than a large elephant with a 1.8 liter engine.  ;D ;D Getting on the Motorway was like dodgem cars, If it was an uphill ramp I'd be lucky to be doing 35 by the top of it.  ;D

lol mine is broke down too. I was just thinking how I haven't had to do anything really with this car in a year I've had it and there it goes. I don't know first I noticed a leak of what appeared to be a power steering line, but the brakes are soft and just not right either. I cut the line and put a temporary hose on over that and put some power steering fluid in. However oddly I guess theres something wrong with the brakes too at the same time. I'm gonna have to take the damn thing in. My dad looked at the front and back pads and shoes and they look to be fine and there's no other leaks. I don't know what the hell the problem is. He said maybe a "power booster" or something, idk even know what that is.


The power booster is essentially a dealy that amplifies the pressure you exert on the brake. Have you ever driven anything from oohhh.. before about 1985? You'd fine in a hurry that power brakes are a luxery not to scoffed at.  ;D
The Landrover I was talking about above didn't have power brakes.. the thing weighed like a metric ton.. I would basically have to stand on the brake pedal if I wanted it to stop.. and even then it was a slow process.. and I'm over 200lbs.  ;D
Of course, the thing was quite literally a tank, it had about 600Lbs of bullbars and winch on the front.. I'd have had to hit a train to actually do any damage.

I am pretty excited. I have an interview tomorrow for a potential job. The reason that I am happy is that it is in the field that I have a LOT of experience with. Basically, it's a shop that specializes in different sales, and they are branching out and wanting to do a lot more online sales and auctions. Soooo..they want to hire someone to not only do bookkeeping and secretarial work...but ALSO to be totally in charge of their online auctions (taking pictures, writing descriptions, managing the auctions, collecting monies, shipping, etc, etc). He was pretty happy when I told him that I have had 7+ years experience with having my own Ebay business and selling for other people.  It is a lot more hours and better pay than what I currently have...and it's not too far away either. :)

Still, it's automatic, and easier for me to drive than a stickshift.

It's a 95 Chevy Blazer.. Little old, but a damn good vehicle.. and it looks awesome. If it ran and got a little better gas mileage (hard on the pocket fueling every week and a half), it'd be my dream car.



You may have to sink a bit into it.  A tune up may go a long way, but I'm not sure  how good the mileage will be on a Blazer.  There are lots of websites on the pro's and con's of most vehicle.  Google '95 Blazer and you will be able to find out what the people with them are having problems with.

We are about to go out for lunch and I still have stuff to sort out in my office and lab area - mainly jobs that didn't get finished!

After today I'll be off-line for a bit.  Next week Dai and I are going out to the States to look at houses, schools etc, then I'll be at home packing and sorting.  We hope to move sometime around the 18th August but there'll be a short delay while we set up home internet access.

If you are here in the States and get frantic you can go to the public libraries and get internet access for free.  Most have a time frame, but that can be lose during the weekdays when not to many people are in.

I always thought it would be cool to have a boat...if I did, I would spend lots of weekends just soaking up the sun. What kind of boat do you have, Cat? My aunt and uncle used to be boaters (but with them, they went through a lot of different phases, and they no longer have them). They had speed boats, and fishing boats....all different kinds. I had fun going out on their boat, when they had them. Do you guys ever waterski, or watertube?

We haven't really been out on her yet this season-except to do work. She is basically ready to go but the weather hasn't been very good lately. It has rained almost everyday for the past month or so. No, we don't waterski or watertube. I think the kids watertubed before I came into the picture. Not too sure. Carlos loves putting up those "big white floppy things" and sail into the sunset. Then we drop anchor and take out the fishing poles. When it gets too hot, we go jump into a lake. Then Carlos makes dinner (which usually includes an appetizer of VERY fresh fish-if we are lucky). After dinner, we usually play cards or cribbage until it is time to go to sleep. I do the dishes in the a.m. Then we pull up anchor and do it all over again (unless we are going home). That is our typical day on the Big Dog.

Don't get me wrong, I love books... but my town's library isn't the nicest place.. the people who run it are kinda hostile... they make a lot of passive-aggressive comments when I volunteer, and they try to get me to go there every day and do all the work that they normally give to hired, paid employees, for free...

Yesterday was totally exhausting. Cleaning this place & getting ready for the girls. Then they all arrived and I didn't get a chance to sit down hardly at all (at least not for a long period of time). By the time I got into bed (about midnight), my feet were killing me-throbbing, etc.) I was the first one up this morning. I read the paper in peace and then everyone got up. One of my step-daughters made breakfast and since it was raining, the boat trip was canceled. They had a thing in the park (venders, old cars, etc.) so we went there. We took the two girls (2 and 1/2 & 4) on a wagon ride pulled by horses. Then we went to Subway for lunch. My youngest step-daughter left shortly after lunch and my other two took a nap while Carlos & I played with girls. Then they left. Yes, I took pics and will post some later.

The girls had some "issues". Each one is an only child used to getting all the attention. (One lives here in Vermont and the other lives in California so they don't see either other very often). Sometimes they will get along great and then the jealousy will creep up. What one has, the other wants. One will take something from the other and the first one would start crying. Then someone will tell the second one to give it back and then SHE will start crying, too.  But then they will start sharing again. I think both of them need a sibling or see their cousin more often.

Cat, I'm in Brandon, close to Rutland.  It is unbelievable how quiet it is here.  At about 2 this afternoon I walked over to Grand Union to get a carton of OJ, and the parking lot was barely half-full and there was not a sound to be heard.  In the middle of the day on a Saturday!  Wow!!

To get here from NY, I drove through the Lake George area.  I got to the NY/VT border around sunset and it was absolutely breathtaking!

Cat, I'm in Brandon, close to Rutland.  It is unbelievable how quiet it is here.  At about 2 this afternoon I walked over to Grand Union to get a carton of OJ, and the parking lot was barely half-full and there was not a sound to be heard.  In the middle of the day on a Saturday!  Wow!!

To get here from NY, I drove through the Lake George area.  I got to the NY/VT border around sunset and it was absolutely breathtaking!

What part of VT do you live in?



I think you went right passed me. I'm in Rutland County. How long are you going to be there?

I plan to leave sometime tomorrow midafternoon.  Without traffic and stops, it's about a 4-hour ride back, but I'll stop at least once, and I know there'll be traffic.

We went to Denny's in Rutland last night.

Today was spent cleaning the house.  We threw away a bunch of old, broken toys.

I just finished ironing the kids clothes so I can pack for our trip on Monday.  Later, I'll start ironing mine.

Don't rule out some of the small family owned businesses.  Sometimes you can luck into something, and those situations can be more flexible in terms of doing different things.


Oh, I'm trying for them... they're hard to find in this town, most of them are very close-knit and only hire family.

Just pulling a quick post or two.

Our conga player, Niobel, returned from Miami. Discovered his wife couldn't take it...and it was her idea to go there, in the first place!

We also appear to have added a percussionist, Ken.
We'll see what come of all this, but we're ready to go, as far as the gigs go.

Howard, I cannot STAND the NYC libraries -- I don't go very often, but when I do they are loaded with teens making noise and always a creepy perv or two at the PCs.  A few years ago I was helping an older friend learn the computer at the one in Sheepshead Bay, and the damned kids were actually shooting SPITBALLS.  I spoke to the librarian and she said policing them wasn't part of her job... >:(
Wouldn't get away with that behaviour in my library!!!!!!!!!!

I babysat my nephew last night. So they all went out for a meal, table booked for 7.30 amd came in at 12.30! Only my brother could spend 5 hours in a restaurant.  ::)

I am worried about one of my best friends. I tried to call her last week to wish her a happy birthday but got a message saying the phone was changed/disconnected. I did try to email her but if she doesn't have a phone, then she probably won't be getting the email. I did a search on google and it had her address/phone (the one that I tried to call) but it also had her husband's name with a different address.  :o  But, that could also be her son. I plugged in her daughter's name and found her website-with an email address. I wrote her daughter and hopefully, I will get a response. The longer this goes on, the more & more worried I become.

I think it was on my birthday.  :-[  Since she moved out west, we only seem to talk on our birthdays.  :\'(  Though, I could have talked to her since. I really don't remember. And yeah, she could have split from her husband but like I said, that other # & address could be her son. I don't know. I feel so lost right now not knowing what is going on with her.

Enjoy the day  :)

Gonna take the boy to the pool today since it's so blasted hot outside.

I made plans to take this girl out for lunch and ice cream tomorrow...  It wasn't until after I got off the phone that I realized I probably would not have a ride.


I have plans myself with a lady.. and I have a car. >:-}D

You need to get your balls moving and get that license, son.

Pool is closed because they're too f**king stupid to hire someone full time to watch it and make sure only residents go in there.

Asshats.

I mean why should I take orders from a guy who doesn't socialize,Isn't friendly or shake hands? >:(


Well, if you have to take order from him.. then do it, but if you don't, just ignore the twat.

He'll talk to you for a while,engage in a conversation then walk away.
Maybe he just doesn't want to get in trouble for standing around talking when he (and you) should be working ???

How can you not know his name if you work with him?  AFA the hand-shaking thing, maybe he has a thing about germs.....I know a few people who won't shake hands because they are paranoid about germs ???

that could be true. I don't particularly love shaking people's hands either.

Howie Mandel is a perfect example of this.
He is a bona fide germophobe.

Therefore, if I'm ever chosen as a contestant on "Deal Or No Deal", I plan to take 2 sets of surgical gloves with me, one for each of us.
This will prove respect, I think.

I think I remember hearing Matt Lauer's the same way (but he usually just carries antibacterial stuff with him)

As are John Mellencamp, Marc Summers and Jack Black.
