Or is it:  MOVEMBER?!?!  http://us.movember.com/

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

Since I look epically horrible with just a moustache and no beard, you now know how serious this is that I'm actually doing this.  Cancer sucks. 

To donate to my Mo you can either:

Click this link:

https://www.movember.com/us/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink&rego=1695216&country=us

and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or:

Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1695216 and mailing it to:
                                           Prostate Cancer Foundation
                                           Attn: Movember
                                          1250 Fourth St
                                           Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations  are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.

African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.

Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

Our Movember team name is "LNCaP yo azz"...a derivative of the term LNCaP, which is the name of an immortalized prostate cancer cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis.  Nerdy, no?  8)

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:

http://us.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket using this link:

Thanks for your support,

Today Himself's sister is coming to stay for a few days, we meet her at the station at 1.30pm.  :)

We have my nephew coming over for the night too to watch some Mighty Boosh ahead of going to see their live show on monday night. He is about to explode with the excitment of it bless him.

For those of you, well most of you I suspect, who have never heard of them,The Mighty Boosh are a very surreal but very funny comedy group who have a T.V show in the U.K.

No clue, but I know it is also Dia De Los Muertos today (and tomorrow).

I'm feeling rather good.  We all barely woke up. :o  Might be having to take Jason to the doctor though.  He's got another Staph sore on his leg.  Since I'm so used to all of us getting these nasty things, I drained it yesterday, slapped some antibiotic ointment on it, and put a band aid on because it's in a sucky place (his inner thigh).  Hopefully that will do it, but sometimes they get so bad that we do have to hit up the doc for some antibiotics or a professional drainage.  He seems in good spirits, so maybe he'll be fine.

We got rain yesterday evening and the evening before.  We have left over candy because I didn't go out there and look like a trick or treater and get myself sick.  It is gray today.

I still don't have my hospital bill and I know I'm going to need to pay it.  I cant really spend money on anything until I know whats going on.

I scrubbed the crap out of my bathroom today.  I have decided to do one room a week.  The kitchen will probably take a couple of weeks, though.  I want to do the floor on my hands and knees and that job will take a couple of hours.  It is surprisingly big considering I live in a trailer. My house should be sparkling by December.

Quantum of Solace, sorry I forgot to say!  :-[  It was ok, mad camera work at the start that almost made you feel sick, a bit too long even though it is the shortest Bond film apparently, but a huge full on James Bond finale which was great.  :)

No nephew last night as he was grounded.  ::)
It rainned like you couldn't imagine so I watched the bonfire night firework display through the bedroom window. I'm guessing they must have lost serious money last night because noone in their right mind would have gone and stood out in that deluge.

Not sure what we are doing today but I will cook a roast dinner at some point.

Went to a meat raffle last night,it was OK.We were hoping to win more,but only ended up with some boneless chicken breasts(which I can't complain it's better than nothing) Tim was hoping to win either a pork loin or the NY strip steaks,me I would've liked the shrimp & cocktail sauce or a turkey.
The good part was that one of my former coworkers was there,so we did some catching up. :)

The bowls club my dad goes to have a meat raffle every Sunday.  They only have one joint available though.





Well we were going to go orienteering this morning but Dai felt too tired to get up in time.  (apparently my fault for pinching the quilt all night).  Then we decided to take the bikes out somewhere.  I suggested combining it with a trip to the place we went last weekend to see if they had Elizabeth's coat (she left it in the pavillion area).  We got there to find that we couldn't take the bikes into the forest so we did a walk instead.  We found the ranger's office but they didn't have the coat.  :(

Stopped in Chicopee for lunch.  Dropped Dai off on the way home so he could ride some of the way.  Now the kids are upstairs playing on the Wii and I'm posting here.

Sunday night was pretty shocking. I choked and fainted at the gig at which I was playing. For all of about ten seconds while I was still conscious, I was pretty damn scared 'cause I wasn't sure what was going on.

I was able to finish the gig, thankfully, I recovered quite quickly after regaining consciousness and I've got more gigs at the same venue coming up on Tuesday afternoon and next Sunday evening, so everything seems pretty okay.

Just wanted to stop in and let y'all know I'm still alive :P  School's kicking my behind this semester, but I'm almost done!!!  I graduate December 14 and hopefully will have more time to play with you guys because I miss you all terribly :(  I'm supposed to be working on an assignment right now, but decided it can wait a few minutes.



Hey Kim...glad to see you around. Good luck with the rest of school. :)

that would be scary. Glad you pulled out in the end and that everything is okay.


Thank you snoz. I'm fine now... (some would say I'm still messed up tho'...) Gotta say, the gig went rather well, except for that one minor setback.

thanks for checking in Mama_K and welcome back.  


Sunday night was pretty shocking. I choked and fainted at the gig at which I was playing. For all of about ten seconds while I was still conscious, I was pretty damn scared 'cause I wasn't sure what was going on.

I was able to finish the gig, thankfully, I recovered quite quickly after regaining consciousness and I've got more gigs at the same venue coming up on Tuesday afternoon and next Sunday evening, so everything seems pretty okay.
was this stage fright? that's cool you settled down and handled the gig.

I was drinking lemonade just beforehand, and I must have either drunk too much, or too fast, or too clumsily, because I got the most painful of air bubbles at the bottom of my diaphragm.

Sadly no videotape was made. I've never actually had a video made of any of my live performances - which is kinda a pity.

So my trainee shows up today with a plate of cookies she baked especially for me.

She heard me telling someone how I like "cookies"  I always have to explain that I like Chocolate Chip cookies without the chips and so I just call them cookies...

she totally showed up with a batch of "cookies"  not a chocolate chip in sight. Its the toll house cookie recipe and I love it. They were just right consistency too... damn the diet I will get back on it tomorrow  ;D



It was a nice thing to have too cuz I had a pretty intense day answering phones related to questions about the man with the gun on an overpass in the city

Sweet Lady Genevieve


by: Ray Davies

Once under a scarlet sky I told you never ending lies,
But they were the words of a drunken vagabond
Who knew very well he would break your heart before long
Oh forgive me Genevieve.

Now I've come back to see Sweet Lady Genevieve,
This time I'll give you some security
And I will make promises I can keep
So will you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve.

Let me rock you, hold you,
Take you in my arms.
Forgive me, please,
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.

Oh if you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
I'm not the impetuous fool you used to know
I know that I used you and I hurt you so,
But that was so long ago Sweet Lady Genevieve.

Oh, love me,
Take me in your arms.
Let me rock you, hold you,
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.

Once under a starry sky I led you on and told you lies
Drank too much whiskey on that hot summer night.
I acted so slyly because you were acting so shy,
Oh forgive me Genevieve.

If you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
You're not the child who smiled so innocently
And I'm not the rogue that I used to be,
So will you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve.

Oh Genevieve, Oh Genevieve.

Happy Anniversary. :)

Congrats to you Midas - can I smite a engaged man so much as before??  ???


Also congrats to you Janine. I share your bewilderment I got called Griselda once under similar circumstances, lord only knows where they got that from!  ;D


The show last night was very funny at one point I was crying with laughter. My nephew loved it too.  :)

Thank you for the compliment of saying you would date me, Howard, that was very sweet.

I am voting after work (technically after I let class out).

Janine, happy anniversary to you and Tim!!!!  Congrats!

Conrats and well done to you both.  :)

stressed with getting a job/volunteer work issues.  I have to report to my mom at 10am and have her give me chores if I don't have work.  I don't know what I'm suppose to do.  Hi I can't hear anything can you give me a job?  I've told mom and dad I want to do United Way since I don't know what to do with myself.  The address I was given says the site is under construction.   I'm not suppose to be on my computer until after 4pm any more on weekdays.  I wonder if that includes work and or hearing device searching?  I think I'll ask my mom that tonight and see if there's any other United Way websites or something.  Hey, I could send a fax I bet.  Yeah me!  I should talk to all of you /myself more often.  Anyway whatever

Have you tried going to Human Resources? Or to the Jr College. They have services available to aid you in your job search. I know the hearing loss is a hindrance but there are still some jobs out there you can do.  I don't know you love gardening so much I think you should check with a local nursery I think they could find away to work around the disability.

Good luck tho.

Your mom sounds hardcore but honestly I think she's just trying to help "motivate" you the only way she knows how.

I know my mom is trying to motivate me.  I know we both have our half of a dysfunction and I think I'd like to kill her sometimes.  I'll do some more looking, but doing tasks to the best of my ability sounds good if I can get that to work out.  It's more that I don't know what I want to do for a job ( and the rest of my life for that matter).

Is there somewhere you can go for some careers advice? There are plenty of professions you can do where your lack of hearing would not be a problem, a careers advisor would be able to tell you those options and then you could see which one appeal to you.
What about college courses? If you wanted to go into gardening/horticulture there are courses you can do to steer you in that direction.

That is a good idea.  The only problem is that there have been such massive cuts in services under the bush boys that it can be difficult, but, the people who run these centers usually have a commitment to help and do there very best to help.  Go see them.

The social security system can be very punitive.  My son will be eligible at age 18 because of his autism.  He will always need services to see him through everyday life, but if he did find a job that paid minimum wage for 40 hours he would lose all services.  They will allow him to work 39 hours a month at minimum wage, after that the money he made would be reduced dollar for dollar and services that make it possible to live independently would be cut down.  I had to inform anyone I think that may leave him money in a will that they would have leave it in trust, if it was left outright in his name he would be released from social security until the money was gone, then he would have to re-apply!  He wouldn't know re-apply from apple pie.  If money was left in his name, and not the name of the trust, he would have to refuse it in order to keep his services.

You are on SSDI.  Did you have the amount of money in your monthly check reduced when you started work.  I am interested to know because that is how it works here.  You are only able to make up to a certain amount before they start taking the money back. I had to set up a trust account for him so that i can leave him money if I want.  They laws have it skewed to favor those with assets(of course).  It is my understanding that after a certain income level, and a certain amount of time they stop the benefits if you are working.

I worked with a man who was on SSDI.  He had a certain amount of money he could make every month before they started cutting his benefits.  I can't remember what it was but I do remember it was ridiculously low. 

I think it is a messed up systems anyway.  My friend's husband took three years to get on SSDI and he has rheumatoid arthritis so bad he can barely walk, let alone open his hands.  They kept telling him he wasn't "disabled" enough. ::)

This may help
Substantial Gainful Activity is simply the dollar amount that a disability beneficary (SSI or social security) may earn each month while simultaneously maintaining eligibility for benefits. The reasoning behind this seemingly arbitrary amount is this: it is the view of the social security administration that an individual who is able to earn at least this amount per month is able to engage in competitive employment in the national economy.

Currently, the SGA amount for 2008 is $940.00.

My dad had the same experience.  It wasn't until a judge told them to get off their asses and start paying him that they did so.  They kept saying he wasn't injured, that he was still getting support from Workman's Comp (he wasn't, that ended years ago), that he didn't qualify, blah blah blah.  He finally started getting a monthly check from them, but then they cut it, saying he was getting money from Workman's Comp again.  He finally got that sorted, and they just paid him a substantial chunk of back pay, along with his monthly pay.  Good thing he had supplemental insurance and money from CalPERS (state pension) while he was battling them.  However, it was still hard going for him and my mom, and they filed bankruptcy this year.  It has gone through already, and they are slowly starting to build their credit back up again (the purchase of the new car).

Now he's just has to battle Workman's Comp to get his meds and treatments and, maybe someday, a settlement.

you can still look into the job assistance program community colleges offer. It's not a class- instead its very similar to job counseling where they help you find the right type of job for you and they would have the resources to tell you what kind of jobs are available for someone who is hearing impaired.


Because you're not a student they may charge you but, from what I remember, it doesn't cost a lot.

The next lady spoke about food storage and having an emergency ration (72 hours worth) stored somewhere such as the garage that you could take if you needed to leave the house.  Also about the importance of keeping a longer term supply of dry and canned goods in storage.  This is something the church says you should do apparently.  They recommend a year's worth of food and water  :o

That is how long it usually takes.  Young children (under 4) are seen within 3 months because it is seen as more urgent.  The older you are the longer it takes.

Not me, my young one, it took 3 months to get him an appointment for a neurological exam.  He was 3 at the time.

Just wanted to stop in and let y'all know I'm still alive :P  School's kicking my behind this semester, but I'm almost done!!!  I graduate December 14 and hopefully will have more time to play with you guys because I miss you all terribly :(  I'm supposed to be working on an assignment right now, but decided it can wait a few minutes.

Hey!!! Haven't seen you in so long! Glad to hear everything's going fine with you.

On a similar note, I, too, am supposed to be working on an assignment right now, but I've had a hard time staying focused lately. :(

I am so totally frustrated and at a loss. As many of you know, I have been having computer problems. I know what the problem is (the spooler is not functioning) but do not know how to correct the problem. For about a week now, I have scoured the internet looking for an answer. I have tried this, I have tried that, I have tried just about everything and it is STILL not working. Carlos wants me to call Microsoft but I hate to do that because every time I call for tech assistance, I seem to know more than the person who is supposed to be helping me.  >:( >:( >:(  And they will probably refer me to their website which I had tried. I can't get a new computer because-well, as much as I love him, my husband is a tightwad (even if I spend my own $$$) and about a year & a half ago, I finally talked him into getting THIS computer-so I have at least a few more years before I can try to convince him to get another one. Of course since getting this computer, I have had nothing but problems.  ::) (The old computer only had ONE thing wrong with it-but it was a fairly major thing). 


If anyone knows about this issue,


PLEASE HELP!!!!!

You could try asking in the Technology forum here but you might need to register.  :-\\

Alternatively let us know the computer make, model, processor, software (Vista, right?) and printer make and model and then describe exactly what happens when you try to print.  Then i could post your question there.

Yes, it is Vista. I have a Lexmark X1270 and when things started messing up, I uninstalled the printer hoping that would solve the problem but now, I can't reinstall it. Yes, I downloaded new drivers from Lexmark's website. That didn't help. I tried deleting/uninstalling things, checking/unchecking items-changing things in the registry, downloaded RegCure (which cost me about $30 to do so)-and still have the same problem. I get this error that the spooler shuts down. I try to restart it and it looks like it wants to but it gets about half way and then dies. I am seriously thinking about taking a sledgehammer to this *&^%$#& machine.

Cat, I wish I could help, but I know so little about fixing computers.  I'll wish you all the luck in the world, but.....  ::)

As for me, great week.  Worked Monday and Tuesday (still on crutches).  Had our division retreat on Wed (went to morning session, left early), then on to Traverse City (northern lower Michigan--absolutely beautiful, great wines) for the MI/AIR conference (Institutional Researchers).  It was great!  Wed was a free day, so I got to spend the afternoon with my friend Sheila who owns the Celtic store in downtown.  Went to see her at her store, bought some stuff (big surprise--only surprise was that I kept it under $10), went to see her condo, then went out to dinner.  Thurs was conference, with Game night that night.  Happy to report that my team kicked a$$ at Trivial Pursuit.  We had no wedges when everyone else had at least 2 and the team in the lead only needed 2.  We got on a roll and ended up winning.  Friday was the last session, which was boring, but we were ironically saved from most of it by a fire in the hotel (in the basement where we were).  It was in the dryer and got in the wall, but they got it under control and got us out very quickly.  I later had a funny feeling in my throat which could have been smoke, but it certainly wasn't serious and went away quickly.  Last night and tonight was all about the live jazz  :)  Randy gave me a ride home tonight because it is so bloody cold (snowed today).  Rest of weekend will be laundry and work (and Micah spending night with me after she gets home from party).

I had quite an interesting day today. I attended a good friend's 30th birthday party, and there were some strange things going on, including someone playing Russian Roulette and thankfully not "winning" (he got one of the 5 empty chambers), another person falling down the stairs head first, there was a Texas Hold-Em game that was largely obscured by a thick cloud of cigarette smoke and was generously laced with profanity, we sang "99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" and got down to minus-4 bottles before the birthday girl began to lose her voice, someone began to projectile-vomit all over me after drinking 13 beers and two gin-and-tonics and eating excessive quantities of Mexican food, and someone evidently got my sweatshirt, which had a picture of a dartboard on the front, mistaken for an actual dartboard and I got two old-fashioned steel-tip darts in my belly. I visited the E.R., and I was treated and released. Yes, alcohol was involved in the party, and it is a large part of my life and those of my friends and family.    :D

So please support my cause or else I'll have grown this ugly thing for nothing :D

See below:


Or is it:  MOVEMBER?!?!  http://us.movember.com/

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

Since I look epically horrible with just a moustache and no beard, you now know how serious this is that I'm actually doing this.  Cancer sucks. 

To donate to my Mo you can either:

Click this link:

https://www.movember.com/us/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink&rego=1695216&country=us

and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or:

Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1695216 and mailing it to:
                                           Prostate Cancer Foundation
                                           Attn: Movember
                                          1250 Fourth St
                                           Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations  are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.

African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.

Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

Our Movember team name is "LNCaP yo azz"...a derivative of the term LNCaP, which is the name of an immortalized prostate cancer cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis.  Nerdy, no?  8)

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:

http://us.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket using this link:

Thanks for your support,

Rice

Wow seriously?
Uncanny how it all seemed to happen to you in one night!
For the longest time I thought that my son was a magnet for everything that could go wrong, would go wrong. But you just took the cake! Russian Roulette? Seriously? I would think that if you are hanging out with people stupid enough to play this game, that you might consider finding new friends. Especially if they are also stupid enough to not realize you were wearing a sweater..... normal dart boards do not have bumps in them - and if they knew but thought it would be funny .... I repeat: Get New Friends! And if you accept this as part of your normal like with family and friends.... I feel for you.

Yes, seriously. Another amusing anecdote involving my friends and family involved my cousin Ricky attempting to shoot an empty whiskey bottle off of his best friend's head with a high-powered crossbow from behind after drinking 2 40-ounce bottles of Colt 45 malt liquor. Ricky's friend narrowly escaped getting an arrow to the brain stem. I was 14 years old at the time.

    My friends and family have been known to do things like falling off of lowered pickup and International Scout tailgates while 4-wheeling and then get run over by the next vehicle to come down the road, lingering near the crater edge of Mt. Saint Helens (although nobody fell in, unlike the flaming dumb*ss who rode his snowmobile into that same crater early in 2008), riding a Razor scooter after dark while wearing a black trench coat and no reflective clothing, trying to climb a very large Saguaro cactus while completely nude, illegally refilling disposable propane cylinders, only to have them blow up, welding and smoking cigarettes at the same time, riding an ice floe down a river, goofing off with fireworks and losing fingers, having carnal relations with a porcupine and ending up with a crotch full of quills, cutting down large trees, not yelling "Timber!" and getting squashed, and many other things, mostly while under the influence of alcohol. I am originally from Arkansas (I won't say where for privacy reasons) and have family and friends all over the US and Canada but now live in Oregon, and Arkies are known for being less-than-bright in many cases (three notable exceptions: Sam Walton, Yours Truly, and arguably, Bill Clinton), although my family and friends have a history of chronic alcoholism and use of hallucinogens. After all, everyone that I know says that I am the most "normal" one in my family, which explains the fact that I don't look abused, mangled or crippled, but define normal. Of course you can't. There is no such thing as "normal". 
Tam-A-Duh, please tell your son about all of these examples and my previous post about the events of November 8, 2008, and he will know that there is someone out there who gets into more strange and/or risky situations than he does, and of course, that person is Yours Truly.
Sincerely, Andria

Q, sounds like you had a wonderful time and I'm thrilled for you!

Cat, I wish I could help, but I know so little about fixing computers.  I'll wish you all the luck in the world, but.....  ::)

As for me, great week.  Worked Monday and Tuesday (still on crutches).  Had our division retreat on Wed (went to morning session, left early), then on to Traverse City (northern lower Michigan--absolutely beautiful, great wines) for the MI/AIR conference (Institutional Researchers).  It was great!  Wed was a free day, so I got to spend the afternoon with my friend Sheila who owns the Celtic store in downtown.  Went to see her at her store, bought some stuff (big surprise--only surprise was that I kept it under $10), went to see her condo, then went out to dinner.  Thurs was conference, with Game night that night.  Happy to report that my team kicked a$$ at Trivial Pursuit.  We had no wedges when everyone else had at least 2 and the team in the lead only needed 2.  We got on a roll and ended up winning.  Friday was the last session, which was boring, but we were ironically saved from most of it by a fire in the hotel (in the basement where we were).  It was in the dryer and got in the wall, but they got it under control and got us out very quickly.  I later had a funny feeling in my throat which could have been smoke, but it certainly wasn't serious and went away quickly.  Last night and tonight was all about the live jazz  :)  Randy gave me a ride home tonight because it is so bloody cold (snowed today).  Rest of weekend will be laundry and work (and Micah spending night with me after she gets home from party).
Sounds like you had a great time too.  :)

I hope they evacuated you first if you were on crutches!  ;D

it's good to have you back. 



...so yesterday I went to a softball fundraiser. A Home Run Derby. my friend sponsored me by paying the twenty dollar entry fee but I got eliminated in the first round. I only hit 1 HR out of 5 pitches while my opponent hit 2  :(    but it was still fun. there were 48 guys entered in the bracket.
My friend is a season ticket holder with the Oakland Raiders football team and he's meeting me in about 30 minutes to go to the game. he treats me to 1 game every year. I'm glad it's not raining. it's actually sunny out. seriously though, I'm not too thrilled because the team sucks. they're awful but he's a die hard fan thru thick and thin so I'll go.

Been one since I was ten years old.  Still have my LOS ANGELES Raiders jacket that my grandfather bought me when I was in fifth grade. :D
Of course, I can't really watch the games or anything now, and I hate following the games online (I'm more of a visual person), so I just usually check to see who they're playing each week and see if they won or lost.

And yes, we're all a little bit nuts... :D

Went to watch Hartford Wolfpack play ice hockey last night.  They had only been playing for 11 seconds when a fight broke out!  It was a good game and ended up 3-3 so they played 15 minutes sudden death.  The Wolfpack scored with 4 seconds to go!

Today we drove down to a state park near-ish to New Haven to go orienteering.  It was good.  Dai took the children around their course whilst I did my course.  Whilst I was still out Dai started his course.  We called in Dunkin Donuts on the way back so I'm feeling good.

Did you know that Hartford used to have its own NHL team?  The Hartford Whalers moved to North Carolina in the late 90s and have since gone to two Stanley Cup Finals, winning it all in 2006.

I believe the Winnipeg Jets moved to Arizona to become the Phoenix Coyotes.

There might be a movement to get the Pittsburgh Penguins to move back to Winnipeg since they can't get a new arena, but we'll see...hockey belongs mostly in the Northern US of A and Canada anyway.

Yes, seriously. Another amusing anecdote involving my friends and family involved my cousin Ricky attempting to shoot an empty whiskey bottle off of his best friend's head with a high-powered crossbow from behind after drinking 2 40-ounce bottles of Colt 45 malt liquor. Ricky's friend narrowly escaped getting an arrow to the brain stem. I was 14 years old at the time.

    My friends and family have been known to do things like falling off of lowered pickup and International Scout tailgates while 4-wheeling and then get run over by the next vehicle to come down the road, lingering near the crater edge of Mt. Saint Helens (although nobody fell in, unlike the flaming dumb*ss who rode his snowmobile into that same crater early in 2008), riding a Razor scooter after dark while wearing a black trench coat and no reflective clothing, trying to climb a very large Saguaro cactus while completely nude, illegally refilling disposable propane cylinders, only to have them blow up, welding and smoking cigarettes at the same time, riding an ice floe down a river, goofing off with fireworks and losing fingers, having carnal relations with a porcupine and ending up with a crotch full of quills, cutting down large trees, not yelling "Timber!" and getting squashed, and many other things, mostly while under the influence of alcohol. I am originally from Arkansas (I won't say where for privacy reasons) and have family and friends all over the US and Canada but now live in Oregon, and Arkies are known for being less-than-bright in many cases (three notable exceptions: Sam Walton, Yours Truly, and arguably, Bill Clinton), although my family and friends have a history of chronic alcoholism and use of hallucinogens. After all, everyone that I know says that I am the most "normal" one in my family, which explains the fact that I don't look abused, mangled or crippled, but define normal. Of course you can't. There is no such thing as "normal". 
Tam-A-Duh, please tell your son about all of these examples and my previous post about the events of November 8, 2008, and he will know that there is someone out there who gets into more strange and/or risky situations than he does, and of course, that person is Yours Truly.

So, talking about 'How do you feel'.

I went to bed about an hour and a half ago, read for a while, turned the light off and tried to go to sleep.

Well, I have no idea why but I had the most bizarre feeling, like I was laying next to myself, it felt like my body was not where it was (that's as well as I can explain it) and like gravity had doubled almost, sort of like I was increasing in density and moving to the right. Also my right food began to feel very strange and still is, not painful..not numb, just not right. Very confusing and disorienting.  :-\\

It can happen before you fall asleep, too.  Basically, your mind is shutting down your body and putting it into sleep paralysis too early, so you experience what usually occurs while you are asleep.  It's a damned weird feeling. :P

I've had it happen a couple of times before, like literally seconds before I fell asleep.  It usually shocked me back into being awake, which is really annoying.

And when I've had it happen, I was usually either really drunk or really tired. :P

How soon is the start?
the game started at 1pm yesterday afternoon. it was sunny and warm, a beautiful day to be at the Oakland Coliseum


Been one since I was ten years old.  Still have my LOS ANGELES Raiders jacket that my grandfather bought me when I was in fifth grade. :D
Of course, I can't really watch the games or anything now, and I hate following the games online (I'm more of a visual person), so I just usually check to see who they're playing each week and see if they won or lost.

And yes, we're all a little bit nuts... :D

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o283/Nerdprincess1980/Other/raiders.jpg
the Raider fans can get a little loco at times but most of the people in the area where we sit are cool. I'm a fan for one game a year but I make the most of my one game. I was gonna buy me a new Raider cap today but they were $43  :o


...so we went to the football game and we got there early and were walking around the stadium when suddenly about 10 of the Raiderettes (cheerleaders) came up into the stands to mingle with the fans and to take pics. my friend took a couple & I can hardly wait to see the one with me surrounded by 4 cheerleaders. I couldn't help but say "is this heaven"?  so even though the Raiders got snuffed out like I knew they would, we still had a good time mingling with footballs fabulous females & eating hot link sausages and nachos.  8)

I think I may have experienced this.2 weeks ago I thought I was awake,but maybe I was sleeping,I heard a knock on the door and it was my sister,it was late so I knew it was bad news. I heard Tim tell her thanks for coming,then he was telling her he didn't know what time she died. I couldn't figure out who he was talking about,I thought something happened to Missy.Then he told my sister that Missy & Timmy were on their way home and I realized that I was the one that died. I tied to get myself up but my legs were numb..The funny thing is I was just watching tv like a minute before that,so I don't think I was totally asleep.

On the sleep paralisis I've had it quite a few times but not recently.  A few times it seemed if I were dreaming I was stuck and then woke up  stuck. 

I'm a little tired I guess from scrubbing the floor with a toothbrush, polishing furnature, moving books from one room to another, and stuff like that.  I'm free tommorow though so I can decide if I want to play games all day or try videoing again.

Just as I got into my 1978 Dodge Magnum to go home, I heard a heated argument coming from a 2nd-floor balcony, then a loud scream, followed by a crashing sound. I drove by where the argument started, and I saw Mr. Birthday Boy himself climbing out of a Dumpster, covered with trash, bleeding and badly bruised. I called 9-1-1, and Birthday Boy was taken to the emergency room, and hopefully, to detox afterward. I don't know what happened after I left other than that I saw a fire engine, two ambulances and several police cars coming toward the apartment complex.

Actually, there were several teenagers at both parties, and there were numerous relatives of mine and children of friends who were under 18 present or close by when most of the events that had no connection to the parties that I went to in the last couple of days. At the parties, the teens were apparently there to cadge booze off of people there (I did not give anyone under the age of 21 any alcohol, but my friend Justin and his brother did, among several others), and at least one was hoping to catch one of the women, not including Yours Truly, strip naked. You mentioned insanity. I must say that my cousin Archie spent 8 years in the Arkansas State Hospital after stealing a handgun, one pound of marijuana, some Zippo lighters, assorted ladies' undergarments and assorted pornographic magazines from a neighbor's house and was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and he is now heavily medicated and living in a locked group home with very little contact with the outside world. I have tried to get me and my family, as well as some of my friends onto "Jerry Springer" four times, but I got no reply each time.

I met with my job coach this morning. We were able to find some possible job leads, and I sent out a few copies of my resume!!! So now I am waiting to hear back from a possible employer. If I don't hear anything in the next few days, I won't despair; I'm sure something will eventually come along for me.



Good Luck with everything Jeff,What job would it be that you are willing to go for?  ???

Forgot to add that the Circuit Court of Cook County has ruled against me in a lawsuit.  Might be able to get it reversed because I was NOT summoned to this hearing, so I had no knowledge that it was going on.  I mean, they've summoned me before, but the hearing was supposed to be on the 15th of October, and this was settled on the 29th of October.  I couldn't go though because I had no babysitter and no money to get downtown.  Another thing that is suspicious is that the judgment letter itself came from the collection agency, not the courts.  Does anyone know if that is normal?

Besides that, if that f*cking collection agency thinks I'm going to pay them $3700 on a $1500 computer that I bought six years ago, they've got another think coming.

Actually, there were several teenagers at both parties, and there were numerous relatives of mine and children of friends who were under 18 present or close by when most of the events that had no connection to the parties that I went to in the last couple of days. At the parties, the teens were apparently there to cadge booze off of people there (I did not give anyone under the age of 21 any alcohol, but my friend Justin and his brother did, among several others), and at least one was hoping to catch one of the women, not including Yours Truly, strip naked. You mentioned insanity. I must say that my cousin Archie spent 8 years in the Arkansas State Hospital after stealing a handgun, one pound of marijuana, some Zippo lighters, assorted ladies' undergarments and assorted pornographic magazines from a neighbor's house and was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and he is now heavily medicated and living in a locked group home with very little contact with the outside world. I have tried to get me and my family, as well as some of my friends onto "Jerry Springer" four times, but I got no reply each time. Everyone in my family except for me has spent at least one night in jail or prison, most of them, once again not including me, have worked on sheriff's-office-run road crews, and even I have been interrogated by a policeman from time to time.

you forgot to mention that tidbit you told me about the boy not really being yours.... wasn't he taken from a shopping cart as an infant by a friend.  You said you only took him in after she was arrested for some other charge.  And then there was that bit about her being knifed while on the inside. Didn't she die because the medical staff thought she faked the bleeding or something?  Yeah so now you call the boy your own and avoid buying milk just in case they start putting missing kids back on the side of milk cartons.

Well..

I once shot a man in Hoboken, just to watch him die.

Then I got in my '78 Challenger and sped away, leading the cops on a 3 state chase before plunging in to the Atlantic and swimming to Iceland where I hid out with a band of Inuits that liked to shave my back daily.

Whilst there I found a '72 El Camino, the engine had a knock but I didn't care, I was in it for the Lulz. I slept in the back of that for weeks whilst I performed the necessary modifications, before too long my work was done. I had a fully operational El Camino Power Boat. I roamed the Atlantic for weeks, bumping in to Chinese pirate ships (way off course I guess) partying with them before slaughtering their crews and stealing their plundered goods.

I eventually washed up in Florida, from there I sailed the power boat through the everglades before getting hammered one night and waking up in a Waste Disposal Facility in St. Petersburg.

I'd go on but... I'm a tragic bore.

Ninny, I know this for a fact. Although an International Loadstar is a very large and very heavy vehicle, it will NOT demolish buildings. For that you need a crane with a wrecking ball, if you want to do it with a vehicle, although I recommend explosives for demolishing buildings. Just make sure that the building is abandoned or otherwise empty, that you have permission to destroy it, and that nobody is inside.  ;) BTW, you would not be allowed to have a computer when you are in prison, and if you did, you would not have internet access of any kind.  ::)

Ninny, I know this for a fact. Although an International Loadstar is a very large and very heavy vehicle, it will NOT demolish buildings. For that you need a crane with a wrecking ball, if you want to do it with a vehicle, although I recommend explosives for demolishing buildings. Just make sure that the building is abandoned or otherwise empty, that you have permission to destroy it, and that nobody is inside.  ;) BTW, you would not be allowed to have a computer when you are in prison, and if you did, you would not have internet access of any kind.  ::)

Thanks Andria,you are right,what was I thinking it wasn't a Loadstar it was a Harvester

Ninny, that is a John Deere, not an International, but close enough. FYI, a Loadstar is a heavy-duty truck of the type once known as a "deuce-and-a-half" due to its 2.5-ton load capacity. It uses the same cab and windshield as the 1957-68 International light-duty pickup, but everything else is different. Loadstars were often used for cement-truck, dump truck, cattle truck, school bus and flatbed purposes. When I was a little kid going to school in Arkansas, my school bus was an International with Loadstar-style front sheetmetal. I am seriously considering the purchase of an armored car that is based on a 1978 Loadstar chassis, hood and front fenders because I have always wanted an armored car.  :)

price of gas being what it is, though, i hardly ever use it anymore. plus i used to get a lot of complaints from the neighbors that i was veering too close to the playground. it's really hard to see a swingset from the top of that thing.

Oh, he's made offhanded remarks in the past (always about Mexicans), but did the old "it was just a joke!" routine.  Considering the past that I had with him and how long I've known him, I let it slide and only chastised him once in a while.  Now I feel guilty and stupid for not telling him to f*ck off a long time ago.

He crossed the line this time though, and I'm not sure I want to talk to him or even acknowledge his existence anymore.

People use to think that I was Italian (not a drop of Italian blood in me) until I went to Greece and then-even the Greeks thought I was Greek until I started talking and they heard my "New Yowk" accent. Somewhere way back, my ancestors must have come from around the Mediterranean. Personally, I think it is the Jewish blood in me that gives me that Med look.

I had a busy busy morning.  I went into school to help prepare stuff for the teachers.  Lots of cutting stuff out today.  Then there was a PTO meeting with a talk from the school psychologist.  After that I helped sort a delivery (Sally Foster) around all the classrooms.  I came home for a quick lunch.

This afternoon we have a parent-teacher conference with James's teacher.  Then I have to take the children to their last gym lesson of the term.  They get graded tonight and might be allowed to move to the pre-team class.

Needless to say my foot is more than a little swollen, so I pulled out the ice pack since I'm hesitant to take any more Motrin (I felt sick to my stomach when I took it earlier).

However, it is after 7 and I have 5 surveys that I need to get done (plus 2 email lists to clean up).  I may not be on until later this weekend.  I am working until 11:30 tomorrow night and go over to the lake on Friday for the weekend (Mom's dr appt on Friday, cleaning their house on Saturday--let's hope my foot is back to normal so I can be on my hands and knees comfortably to scrub the floors).

what about the mess on your car, who cleaned the blood and guts and feathers and entrails  ???    someone hit a deer in Orinda on my way home on the San Pablo Dam Road and it must have gotten hit several times so the cops had their lights on, and a flare next to the deer so people would see it and stop running over it.

My friends dad was driving a huge truck and spotted a 'dead' pheasant in the road so he stopped and picked it up....... you can guess the rest! Unconcious bird wakes up and starts flapping madly round the cab of a truck as it's driving along the road. Moral of the story: always make sure the road kill is actually dead first.


Thanks for the heads up on the celsius conversion karen. I have my  heating on 20.  ;D

Actually, there were several teenagers at both parties, and there were numerous relatives of mine and children of friends who were under 18 present or close by when most of the events that had no connection to the parties that I went to in the last couple of days. At the parties, the teens were apparently there to cadge booze off of people there (I did not give anyone under the age of 21 any alcohol, but my friend Justin and his brother did, among several others), and at least one was hoping to catch one of the women, not including Yours Truly, strip naked. You mentioned insanity. I must say that my cousin Archie spent 8 years in the Arkansas State Hospital after stealing a handgun, one pound of marijuana, some Zippo lighters, assorted ladies' undergarments and assorted pornographic magazines from a neighbor's house and was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and he is now heavily medicated and living in a locked group home with very little contact with the outside world. I have tried to get me and my family, as well as some of my friends onto "Jerry Springer" four times, but I got no reply each time. Everyone in my family except for me has spent at least one night in jail or prison, most of them, once again not including me, have worked on sheriff's-office-run road crews, and even I have been interrogated by a policeman from time to time. I agree that it is rather insane, but I have a great time, that is, unless darts penetrate my skin, or if something really crazy happens, like somebody dying, passing out or falling from a high elevation or into a fire. As for the best time that I have had with this motley bunch, I must say that it was when we skipped my high-school graduation ceremony, piled into and onto a 1974 International Loadstar heavy-duty flatbed truck that was "borrowed" from my friend Chelsi's father's workplace, where it was used to haul scrap metal, and we drove around in the middle of nowhere for hours. The truck was returned to Chelsi's dad's place of work with not a single drop of diesel left in both its tanks, and I confess that I drove this huge beast through several rural communities as if it were a sports car, nearly flipping it over at least twice, and yes, I had been drinking, 1 bottle of Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill wine and one "grenade" bottle of Mickey's Malt Liquor, to be exact. However, I did not steal the truck, my now-ex-friend Melinda Savage did. She is now serving 22 months in federal prison for possessing a hand grenade, and she also got 90 days of probation, had to pay restitution and had  her driver's license suspended for 1 year for stealing the truck.


I don't know what the hell half of this says, and I apologize for dredging this post up from eleven pages ago, but I've only just found the true and necessary words to express how I feel.

As the reasonable and incredibly tolerant and patient human being that I am, the way you talk about alcohol supposedly screwing up your life and yet it having seemingly no effect (though I would beg to differ) sickens me more than almost anything I've ever read on this board.

I lost two future in-laws to what is essentially excessive drinking and smoking and generally making their own lives a misery at the expense of the love and care of their own step-daughter. The fact that you will eventually become the very same person that they became before I discovered each of them, within three weeks of each other, one unconscious, one dead on the floor of their skanky, smoke-infested two-bedroom house.. makes me pity you in extremis.

Assuming, of course, that what you're saying is true. </can of worms>

Someone gave my Mo $10!  Yay!  Death to prostate cancer!  :D :)

For those of you who wish to forgo a Starbucks for just one day, here's how you can help:


Or is it:  MOVEMBER?!?!  http://us.movember.com/

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

Since I look epically horrible with just a moustache and no beard, you now know how serious this is that I'm actually doing this.  Cancer sucks. 

To donate to my Mo you can either:

Click this link:

https://www.movember.com/us/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink&rego=1695216&country=us

and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or:

Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1695216 and mailing it to:
                                           Prostate Cancer Foundation
                                           Attn: Movember
                                          1250 Fourth St
                                           Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations  are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.

African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.

Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

Our Movember team name is "LNCaP yo azz"...a derivative of the term LNCaP, which is the name of an immortalized prostate cancer cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis.  Nerdy, no?  8)

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:

http://us.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket using this link:

http://us.movember.com/galatickets/index.php

Thanks for your support,

Rice

Movember is proudly grown by Canadian Club and Philips Norelco.

Movember is proud to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

i've known some folks who do that, lie or use and brag about it. they tend to be younger. i'm not sure there's anything better about hiding it. the presence or absence of the condition is what's the problem, not necessarily what the person does with it. what's interesting is people's reaction, that they so quickly react with anger and disapproval over a type of behavior that doesn't appear to be a conscious choice. it probably calls for either compassion or indifference, not anger.

Compassion, yes, indifference, never.  To be indifferent short of condoning the behavior, as if it doesn't count, and it does.  Better a negative reaction than no reaction at all.

You're welcome at my place anytime, that is, unless you have small children with you, but please don't complain about the condition of the house, the guy who runs his wood chipper after midnight on the street behind my house, the liquor and wine bottles everywhere or the tinfoil on the windows. I hope you don't mind sleeping on a Coast Guard-surplus inflatable 10-man life raft that I bought at a yard sale for $25 just because I thought it was cool.  ;)
By the way, Snoz, I found out that you only had $15, so I cancelled the $50 per night fee for pets and/or smoking.

I've been there but haven't in DECADES. They used to have a theatre there and I saw plays with names like Angela Lansbury & Dean Jones. I don't know if the theatre is still there.


Snoz: Like so many have offered, you can always stay here but I am afraid that we are too far away to help. Please stay safe. I'm sure I can speak for many here when I say that you are in our thoughts & prayers. Please keep us informed on what is going on.

As for me, I'm still fighting this massive sinus headache-some days are better than others-and I have been trying to do everything I can to make it go away. I'm afraid that the only way to make it go away involves a trip to the doc.  :-\\  Carlos is also having some sinus issues, too. We hope that both of us feel better tomorrow because we are supposed to go up to Burlington and will be celebrating Carlos' daughter's birthday (a bit early) and then we are going to see the Loving Spoonfuls & Rick Derringer in concert.

thank you guys for all your well wishes.  I have talked to some of you in PMs but here's my official update


I evacuated last night around 7pm.
I did flee to the police dept/sheriff's department. we share a building. I worked for 4 hours and then crashed on a recliner in the Fire Dept TV room but could not sleep so I watched Top Gun and Legend of Bagger Vance. I probably dozed for 30 minutes.

At 630 I got up and worked a couple more hours but my captains knowing I was homeless let me go watch the updates where they announced a bank was providing hotel rooms on first come first serve basis. I had to get to the bank to get on the list then wait for a phone call.  I also had to do something I hate to do...get a cash advance from one of those places but I was broke broke broke.... so I did that.

I got the call at 1130 to get to the hotel at 12 I was third in line and got a room I get to stay for free until Mon 12 pm.  I had to do laundry and I got some food to put in the fridge here so I wouldn't eat out too much.  unfortunately I got some TV dinners only to learn the fridge has no freezer oh welll cold works right  ;D


Every time I got in the room I remembered something else I had to do. My last errand was running to radio shack to get an ethernet cable so I could talk to you guys.  ;D 


So the bad news is my co-worker lost her house
The good news is my landlord didn't evacuate when he was supposed to and managed to save our house (as of 2 pm) we are hoping for no winds tonight otherwise it could be for nothing.  He saved a few other houses but some houses near ours went up.  One man died- he was 98 and they don't know if he died cause he was old and under stress or because of the fire  but he lived on my street . If I can get a map I'll show you the area.

Thanks again for the well wishes


sorry if this is is long I get talkative when I am tired and as I said ive only had 30 minutes of sleep since waking at 9 am on Thurs.  but now I am too tired to sleep.  ;D

its not yet been determined.  but the area it was started the Tea Garden is an old estate garden that is totally overgrown and apparently used by kids as a hangout to party...so probably accidental from smoking or arson.

thank you guys for all your well wishes.  I have talked to some of you in PMs but here's my official update


I evacuated last night around 7pm.
I did flee to the police dept/sheriff's department. we share a building. I worked for 4 hours and then crashed on a recliner in the Fire Dept TV room but could not sleep so I watched Top Gun and Legend of Bagger Vance. I probably dozed for 30 minutes.

At 630 I got up and worked a couple more hours but my captains knowing I was homeless let me go watch the updates where they announced a bank was providing hotel rooms on first come first serve basis. I had to get to the bank to get on the list then wait for a phone call.  I also had to do something I hate to do...get a cash advance from one of those places but I was broke broke broke.... so I did that.

I got the call at 1130 to get to the hotel at 12 I was third in line and got a room I get to stay for free until Mon 12 pm.  I had to do laundry and I got some food to put in the fridge here so I wouldn't eat out too much.  unfortunately I got some TV dinners only to learn the fridge has no freezer oh welll cold works right  ;D


Every time I got in the room I remembered something else I had to do. My last errand was running to radio shack to get an ethernet cable so I could talk to you guys.  ;D 


So the bad news is my co-worker lost her house
The good news is my landlord didn't evacuate when he was supposed to and managed to save our house (as of 2 pm) we are hoping for no winds tonight otherwise it could be for nothing.  He saved a few other houses but some houses near ours went up.  One man died- he was 98 and they don't know if he died cause he was old and under stress or because of the fire  but he lived on my street . If I can get a map I'll show you the area.

Thanks again for the well wishes


sorry if this is is long I get talkative when I am tired and as I said ive only had 30 minutes of sleep since waking at 9 am on Thurs.  but now I am too tired to sleep.   ;D





I'm very glad to see that you are okay, Q!!

Can you tell I'm p*ssed right now? ::)

Haven't been able to get a proper access to the Gnutella network for the past week or so. Every time I start up LimeWire it tells me that it has detected a firewall - when in fact there is none. I've checked my firewall settings (both Windows and Norton) and they're set to allow LimeWire. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling LimeWire, but to no avail. No connection, still the firewall warning.

At first I was puzzled, later I got annoyed and now I'm close to smashing something.  >:( >:(

The concert last night:

Our governor was there (big whooped  ::) ) and he spoke a few minutes before the show. I should say that this was a benefit concert to the support the firefighters of Vermont and of course I couldn't help but think about their "brothers" in battle in California as we were enjoying ourselves.  :-\\

Rick Derriger was first. After his band played the first song, Carlos turned to me and said fairly loud, "They SUCK!!" It was pretty bad because the sound equipment wasn't set up properly and it was TOO loud and the bass drowned everything else out and it just sounded like noise. The good thing was that they only played for a short time.

The Loving Spoonfuls were GREAT!!! They put on a great show. I thought of Danoota when they sang the song 6 O'Clock.  ;)  Yeah, the sound equipment wasn't set up great but because they put on a great show, you didn't mind it as much as you did with the first act. I thought about taking a photo since I did have my camera but decided against it. So the evening wasn't a total loss after suffering through the first act.

As for me....I am so glad church is over today.  I teach Pre-school and the other teacher was gone today so I was all by myself with 12 4-year olds.  It wouldn't have been so bad but for one who didn't want to listen and kept wandering around.  Usually we just ignore the behavior but the other kids wanted to see what she was doing so no one paid attention.  I don't think anything I said got through to them.  Just one of those days that makes me not want to teach anymore.  I hate those days. :(

We went orienteering this morning.  we'd arranged to meet friends there (they were coming after church) and whilst we were waiting some other friends arrived.  James went around one course with this family and Dai went for his own run.  Then our other friends arrived so we all went out in pairs around different courses.

For a quick lunch I called in the local supermarket which makes deli sandwiches.  I thought it would be quicker than Subway (because it was closer to the house) but no...  They sliced the meat to order and didn't have a very good layout so the guy walked a lot whilst he made the sandwiches.  They were very good but I wanted them in about half the time!

This evening friends from up the road came round for dinner.  Whislt we prepared dinner the children all played together.  It was a nice evening and chance for us all to catch up.

Orienteering is a fun outdoor activity in which you run (or walk) a course in the woods, using only a specially drawn, detailed map and compass to guide you.  Control locations are marked on your map and your goal is to find them in the woods.  This can be as competitive as you want; from a nice relaxed stroll in the woods, to making your competitors eat your dust!

It is enjoyed by kids, families, groups, individuals and is good training for adventure racers.

Also known as the "Thinking Sport": it is not always the fastest runner who wins.


At each event there will be a few different courses that vary in length and difficulty.  The easiest course is about 2 km and follows the trails.  The most difficult course is about 10 km and you have to find 'point features' such as a boulder, pit, etc. in the middle of the terrain with very little chance to follow the trails in between the control points.

Sweet.  Thanks for the info.  :)

I'll probably have to wait until after winter anyways.  Jason has decided that he wants to try out soccer at the neighborhood club.  They give indoor classes in the winter, so it should be interesting.  Since he's still so little, I think they teach them easy basics and let them hang out with other kids.  I need to call tomorrow and see about visiting for a free class before I fully sign him up.

Jason will be four in February.  They have classes over here starting at 18 months (more of playtime than anything for the little ones).  According to the website, the children that are Jason's age will learn foot-eye coordination and develop team skills, but they won't play any competitive games.  I think it will do him a world of good since he's usually home with me and he won't start preschool until next year (unless they decide to let him into kindergarten since he'll be 4 1/2 next September).

The Governator also declared a state of Emergency in the L.A. area, and I watched him speak on TV this morning. The area in which he, along with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and others, were speaking at 10 this morning, was Hansen Dam, a recreational area very close to where I used to live.

We watched him on the news last night. As we don't see him very often on the news in the U.K, it is still hard to accept him as a polititian and not 'Arnie'.

It's looking even worse in Sylmar (a community in the northern part of Los Angeles)...a mobile-home park had 500 of its homes burnt to the ground. I feel bad for those folks. :\'( A series of other blazes have sparked up in Diamond Bar, Chino, and Yorba Linda...three cities located east of Los Angeles but near a series of hills.

yeah the Sylmar fire is pretty bad.  Worse in devestation than the montecito fire....
we're taking some heat because the first night of the Montecito they did 100 drops of water during the night and well night flights for water drops are very rare.  To be honest its the only reason most homes in the area survived.... I think the count is up to 200 homes damaged or destroyed.

anyway- the sylmar fire hit a mobile home park and that place went up like a book of matches.... people are saying that the fire dept was more concerned about saving mansions - montecito is considered a wealthy area because a lot of celebs live here although alot of the homes are owned by people who aren't necessarily rich they've just lived here a long time.

You're right about that. I lived in a mobile home for the first 20 years of my life in an area close to Sylmar, known as Lakeview Terrace (approximately 5 or 6 miles southeast of the Sylmar trailer park that got burnt), and the only damage that place ever suffered was from the earthquake of 1994; the place slid off its foundation and we were able to have it repaired, thanks to our insurance. I am so glad that I no longer live in one, given what happened to the trailer park in Sylmar (which I have passed on the freeway countless times)..

I know.  I live in one and we are all pretty close together.  There is a law here that says the awnings have to be at least 6 feet apart, which would probably help in a single house fire, but not a wild fire.  This is why we have insurance. :)

Damn.  Jason and I saw some of the flooding when we were taking the train to California.  It was horrible. :(

Farmers rarely get recognition for all their hard work.  Kudos to him for providing the vegan hippies with soybeans and corn. ;D

It is those same vegan's that smite us for raising beef and hogs, do they not realize we also raise their tofu ;D ;D ;D

I will qualify this by saying that I do not have a problem with vegetarians, vegetable and fruit growers are farmer's too, but please do not hate me because we grow beef and cattle!!!  Heck I eat mostly vegetables!

I love you for growing animals for me to eat!  BBQ is may absolute favourite food..... :)  Some vegetarians have told me that I wouldn't eat meat if I knew how it came to my table. Well....I was taken to the abattoirs (on a school excursion) when I was 9 years old and saw exactly what happens! Yes...in the days before permission slips...the school took us to the Butter Factory, then the Sugar Mill ....and then the abattoirs. Some of the class were shocked and ran away to hide in the bus.

Anyway.....I love burnt meat!

yeah the Sylmar fire is pretty bad.  Worse in devestation than the montecito fire....
we're taking some heat because the first night of the Montecito they did 100 drops of water during the night and well night flights for water drops are very rare.  To be honest its the only reason most homes in the area survived.... I think the count is up to 200 homes damaged or destroyed.

anyway- the sylmar fire hit a mobile home park and that place went up like a book of matches.... people are saying that the fire dept was more concerned about saving mansions - montecito is considered a wealthy area because a lot of celebs live here although alot of the homes are owned by people who aren't necessarily rich they've just lived here a long time.


Anyway- I just got in this morning and the house is okay  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/boldblue.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/boldlblue.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/bouncered.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/bouncingstegi.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/bounce4.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/boldred.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/bounce2.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/02/bounce.gif

I lost some food because of the power outage and some TV shows have been erased from my DVR but considering the alternative. I will take it!

Thanks again for all your concern!  the kind words, support, friendship and laughs mean a lot and helped me endure a rough 3 days!





That's wonderful, snoz! I'm glad everything's OK!  :)

Just spoke to Himself who has just got back from the doctors. I made him go a while ago for a general medical because he eats so badly and high cholesterol gallops through his family.They did blood tests and found he had low potassium, he never eats fruit etc so they told him to eat lots of potassium rich food and go back for more tests a month later. He has since been eating enough fruit and veg to feed an army of monkeys *but* he gets his test results today and his potassium has actually gone down  ::) The man is a freak of nature I swear!
He has tested negative for all the causes of low potassium and the doctor is stumped, so now he has to go to hospital for more tests in a few weeks. It might just be that he has naturally low potassium apparently.
So he says it's all my fault for making him go in the first place.  ::)

Okay, goodness knows I love my dad, but he is so silly.  He bought Jason a bunch of Spiderman stuff last week and we got it in the mail today.  So J. boy now has Spiderman walkie talkies, a digital camera, binoculars, a spyglass, flashlight, compass, and something else I haven't identified yet.  My mom also bought him a new blanket for his bed.  Oh, and then the envelope of $40 to cover any batteries that the toys needed.  I told my dad we keep a stock of batteries anyways because of various J. toys that need them, but he was all, "Just keep it anyways."  Thanks Dad!

I know he feels bad because he doesn't get to see the brat that much, but hell, for what he spent, I could have probably shipped Jason to them! ;D

Well, my mom and I both suggested that the stuff be given to him for Christmas, but he was adamant that he get it now.  I already have a few things put away for Christmas (Legos, whee!), and he'll be getting some clothes from both grandparents.  They're also going to foot the bill for soccer, so I think that's plenty.  Jason still doesn't really understand why he gets gifts and stuff during that one day, so it doesn't really faze him if he gets a little or a lot.

Couple inches south actually. It's my hand, a deck got dropped on it. (Deck as in, platform that makes up a stage.)

There's a big long line that's black and the fleshy part on the edge got ripped up (well, ripped off almost) so I can't grip anything with my left hand at all (making the fingers move is painful as hell!). I actually went to the Doc this morning to determine if this is a workers comp issue or not, I don't think it will be though. I'm working a gig tonight and just doing a light patch which basically involves punching numbers in to a computer and shouting a lot.

Death to prostate cancer!  Support my MO!  :D :D

Thanks in advance :)


Or is it:  MOVEMBER?!?!  http://us.movember.com/

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

Since I look epically horrible with just a moustache and no beard, you now know how serious this is that I'm actually doing this.  Cancer sucks. 

To donate to my Mo you can either:

Click this link:

https://www.movember.com/us/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink&rego=1695216&country=us

and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or:

Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1695216 and mailing it to:
                                           Prostate Cancer Foundation
                                           Attn: Movember
                                          1250 Fourth St
                                           Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations  are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.

African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.

Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

Our Movember team name is "LNCaP yo azz"...a derivative of the term LNCaP, which is the name of an immortalized prostate cancer cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis.  Nerdy, no?  8)

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:

http://us.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket using this link:

Thanks for your support,

Rice

Movember is proudly grown by Canadian Club and Philips Norelco.

Movember is proud to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Awwww, thanks-karma right back at ya.


Unfortunately, I think it might be getting worse. I think now I'm running a low grade fever. Good thing I don't have anything to do (except laundry, dishes, & computer things  ::) ) and no place I have to go this week. Give me plenty of time to shake this thing off.

I am very very sad.  My doctor is moving to Idaho because her fiance got a job out there.  She'll be at the clinic until the New Year, then she'll be gone. :\'(

I don't know if it's correct, but I bought her a thank you card so I can give it to her before she leaves (Jason has an appointment next week, so I'll probably give it to her then so as not to take up her time).  She's pretty sad too, because, as she put it, she's going to really miss her patients.

Here is a video clip of Maya Angelou reading a poem she must have written just for me!  ;D

The Health Food Diner
clip

The Health Food Diner

No sprouted wheat and soya shoots
And Brussels in a cake,
Carrot straw and spinach raw,
(Today, I need a steak).

Not thick brown rice and rice pilaw
Or mushrooms creamed on toast,
Turnips mashed and parsnips hashed,
(I'm dreaming of a roast).

Health-food folks around the world
Are thinned by anxious zeal,
They look for help in seafood kelp
(I count on breaded veal).

No smoking signs, raw mustard greens,
Zucchini by the ton,
Uncooked kale and bodies frail
Are sure to make me run

to

Loins of pork and chicken thighs
And standing rib, so prime,
Pork chops brown and fresh ground round
(I crave them all the time).

Irish stews and boiled corned beef
and hot dogs by the scores,
or any place that saves a space
For smoking carnivores.

-- Maya Angelou

glad to hear it...



glad your nose doesn't hurt as much either Erin... I could never do it.  As it is I got my ears done on a dare because I cannot turn down a dare... ;D  wore those suckers for an entire school year but the pushing & pulling of earrings through my lobes always made me a little queasy... I never got used to feeling of the metal passing through my skin.


Speaking of dares I may have mentioned that my captain has stage 3 breast cancer.  Most of the officers took to shaving their heads  in support- she lost her hair to chemo-  anyway one officer would not shave his head and I was teasing him about that. I said I will if you will- then people started daring me and I said nope someone has to pony up first. (someone who hadn't planned on doing it.) I had a meeting at 1:30 at 1:00 one of the guys who had to get permission from his girlfriend first went up and I had been taunting him bad... I was like- HOLY Crap I don't want to shave my head.  At first I thought I would do it but when push came to shove---- its the only dare I've ever backed out of but I had to leave for my meeting so I just told him he waited too long.... I think had it happened at 12:30 I would've been sorry I made the bet but I would've gone through with it to save face.... I got lucky  ;D

sorry Jess I know you really like her.... perhaps you can have a one on one and tell her how much her patience and support has meant to you and you wonder if she has a recommendation for someone who is just as good with the patients.  I think giving her a card is a good idea it will help to keep her grounded - ie keep her from becoming jaded like the rest of them.

Well, she did refer me to one of her colleagues, so I meet the new doc in January.  She said that this doctor is exactly like her, so I hope that's true.

I don't know if she'll ever become jaded.  I had an appointment at 8:15 this morning and the clinic was hopping when I got there.  I think she saw five patients before she saw me, and I could hear her greet every one with a cheerful, "Good morning!"  She also remembered all the minor side effects that I've been experiencing since starting Paxil.  The people in Idaho are lucky to get her, but my goodness, it sucks.  Even the receptionists and nurses are bummed about it.

She also told me that she works every day, with only Thursday afternoons off.  I was like, :o.

Oh yeah, I bought her a card already.  The front has a bunny on it that says, "Thank you from the bottom of my butt."  Then inside it says, "Because it is bigger than my heart." ;D

Wanna make it worth my while to look like a pervert?  Act today!  Support my MO and prostate cancer research by donating :)

Info below.


Or is it:  MOVEMBER?!?!  http://us.movember.com/

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

Since I look epically horrible with just a moustache and no beard, you now know how serious this is that I'm actually doing this.  Cancer sucks. 

To donate to my Mo you can either:

Click this link:

https://www.movember.com/us/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink&rego=1695216&country=us

and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or:

Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1695216 and mailing it to:
                                          Prostate Cancer Foundation
                                          Attn: Movember
                                          1250 Fourth St
                                          Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations  are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.

African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.

Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

Our Movember team name is "LNCaP yo azz"...a derivative of the term LNCaP, which is the name of an immortalized prostate cancer cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis.  Nerdy, no?  8)

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:

http://us.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket using this link:

Thanks for your support,

Rice

I would assume that they take whatever they can get, as it all goes to the prostate cancer foundation. 

The point is not to make people feel guilty, but to let them know that a problem exists and needs to be addressed, especially considering that prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in males.  So a fun way to do it is to look like a 70s porn star for a month :D

It is cold outside.  I just pegged out some shirts to dry and they were starting to freeze solid


Time to invest in a tumble dryer. Way I see it, anything that won't go in one, I don't want to own anymore.


I had great success this morning, I have a 4 days where I'm only working in the evenings (Show run) so I've been looking forward to sleeping in. Last night I put cardboard in all the windows that shine on to my bed and it worked great, no natural light! Love it.

so far the word has been good. I mean at least our address is not on the list of destroyed houses.... don't know if there's been water damage from the fly bys or any other damage but as long as I have a roof I think I'm okay with everything else.




Needless to say I'm glad you're alright Snozberries, I just learned about your bad dream.
You live in a range where mother nature seems so heavy and strange. Earthquakes, wild-fires and storms make life so hard and  strong, I think that would be a good place to stand up.

I just found out that my sister had a form of Lupus. I knew she had Shojren's which means her body did not produce liquids (saliva, tears, etc) and she was always drinking something. But I didn't know that was related or a form of Lupus. Stupid me should have done some research on it.

When I saw her this summer, her face was very puffy. Everyone mentioned about it-including her. She didn't know why and went to the doc to see why. They didn't have any answers for her. For those of you who saw the photos, you can see that her face was very puffy-and apparently it was still that way.

I talked to both my parents today-twice as well as two of my other sisters. (Haven't talked to 1 sister & my brother). I am worried about my sister's twin daughters. They are both in college now and I'm not too sure what they are going to do. I may be taking another trip out to Tulsa soon-don't know yet.

I am still numb and in shock. It just seems like a bad dream that I hope to wake up from. Yeah, reality hasn't set in yet. I plan on getting drunk tonight and when I told my mother that, she said, "That sounds like a good idea." My mother RARELY drinks.

My oldest sister passed away.  :\'( :\'( :\'( :\'(

No one knows what happened. There was something wrong with her for a long time and the docs didn't know what it was.

I just found out that my sister had a form of Lupus. I knew she had Shojren's which means her body did not produce liquids (saliva, tears, etc) and she was always drinking something. But I didn't know that was related or a form of Lupus. Stupid me should have done some research on it.

When I saw her this summer, her face was very puffy. Everyone mentioned about it-including her. She didn't know why and went to the doc to see why. They didn't have any answers for her. For those of you who saw the photos, you can see that her face was very puffy-and apparently it was still that way.

I talked to both my parents today-twice as well as two of my other sisters. (Haven't talked to 1 sister & my brother). I am worried about my sister's twin daughters. They are both in college now and I'm not too sure what they are going to do. I may be taking another trip out to Tulsa soon-don't know yet.

I am still numb and in shock. It just seems like a bad dream that I hope to wake up from. Yeah, reality hasn't set in yet. I plan on getting drunk tonight and when I told my mother that, she said, "That sounds like a good idea." My mother RARELY drinks.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I can't tell you how much that means to me.

Cat, it' is hard to go through pain and sorry, when you lose someone  you'll miss forever.

The only way to hardly  relieve the pain is thinking they don't gonna hurt anymore as they've hurted so far.
And they will live in our minds up to the very day we follow them.
That's how I think of all the souls I've lost, my fathers among them.
They live deep in my heart.

I give you a thought of mercy to hold you up.

Francisco or Paco for short. ;)


Ain't it hard
when you wake up
in the morning
And you find out
that those other days
are gone?
All you have
is memories of happiness
Lingerin' on.


You might wonder
who can I turn to
On this cold
and chilly night of gloom
The answer to that question
Is nowhere in this room.

All your dreams
and your lovers
won't protect you,
They're only passing
through you in the end.
They'll leave
you stripped of all
that they can get to,
And wait for you
to come back again.

Yet still a light is shining
From that lamp on down the hall.
Maybe the star of Bethlehem
Wasn't a star at all.

Thanks everyone, for your PMs, kind words and thoughts. I'm still numb today. It just seems like a bad dream I had. Yeah, reality hasn't sunk in yet. I'm TRYING not to think about it-but of course that doesn't work. My mind always goes back to her. As I have told a few people, I have this mental image of a family portrait and there is a blank spot where she should be.

I have just been catching up on 30 or so pages of posts, so I apologize that some of these replies are REALLY delinquent!

Cat, oh honey, I'm so sorry about about your sis.  How young she was.  Please, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.  <<hugs>>

Q, I'm so relieved that you and your house are ok, but sorry to hear about your co-worker's.  I understand that you are having a version of "survivor's guilt" that your house was spared and hers wasn't, but please try not to feel guilty about being happy you have a home to come home to.  And I'm jealous about meeting the Criminal Minds cast.  I really miss Mandy Patinkin, but like Montagna.  And yes, Shemar Moore is fine on TV, can only imagine he is even more so in person...and he seems like the back rubbing kind.   ;)  If you ever do something with the CSI:NY cast, you so have to take me!!!!!!!!!!!! k?  ::)  j/k

Erin, how's your nose?  Made mine hurt to think about it, but more power to you.

I've been beyond busy since getting back from the lake (which went well, got the house looking good).  The nights I had to work til 11 made for excruciatingly long days, esp the Thursdays because they already start early w/ weigh in (which isn't going well since I'm still out of commission, so we won't talk about that).  I have been putting in 6-7 day weeks at the office (went in yesterday, should have gone in today but just couldn't face it).  Bring home work every night (only do about 2 yrs a night).  Heading back to the lake for Thanksgiving.

Micah spent this weekend with me (yay) and since she is done Monday afternoon (classes end at noon on Wed, but her instructors said no class), will spend Mon & Tues night with me.  I love it!  We have so much fun together now.  She had her MRI last Friday and her appt w/ her orth. surgeon is the 8th.  I think she'll have to have surgery (torn ACL same knee that was scoped Sept 07).  She has made such a great transition to college, pulling As and Bs at midterms.  I have high hopes for her final grades and couldn't be prouder.

Weatherwise, it had been so lovely in October and the first part of November.  Then we got a few inches of snow and it all went downhill (I'm not a winter person).  We didn't get a major storm they were predicting, so it turned out to be a great weekend.

Hope everyone is feeling and doing well.  I have to get back to work.  ::)  BTW, Charlie Brown Tuesday night 8pm ET!!!

be careful not to burn yourself out and get too fatigued. take naps whenever the chance arises. It sure sounds like you guys picked the perfect school for Micah and that she's doing great.  well done.


..I had a rough night, couldn't sleep until about 4am, just restless insomnia and then I slept in until 12:20p.  got up and took 2 old tvs and 2 old computer printers to a free electronics recycle place. came home and mowed the front and back yard, both of which were covered in leaves. I usually rake them up, but this time I just went over them with the lawnmower and mulched them. now I'm getting ready to bake some candied yams.  Julie & Diane just hung up a beautiful Christmas wreath outside on our front door they just made. It looks great.

For anyone who wants to know:

My dad & one of my sisters are going out to Tulsa to be with my sister who is still there and my nieces. Carlos & I thought about it but were afraid that we would be in the way more than anything thing.

My dad always goes out there for Thanksgiving but since my grandmother isn't there, he wasn't going to but my sister begged him to go-and now she isn't there.  :\'( :\'(  But I know my dad can do some good. He is going to talk to the lawyer who is taking care of Grandma's estate and inquire about how to deal with my sister's since we are not too sure she even had a will.

As for our part, Carlos & I are going to my mother's for Thanksgiving. It is not something that we really want to do, but we both feel that we should be there for my mother. I am really not too sure how she is handling this. She seems ok, but...

I had a request from my sister-the one who will be on her way to Tulsa for a link to this thread. She thinks that I probably should have created a thread just for it because everything will get lost in all the chatter. She is right but I didn't for fear of seeking attention. So if she gets a chance, she is going to see what all you wonderful people had to say.

How am I doing? Good question. I am still numb. Reality hasn't hit yet. One moment I'm fine and then something will be said or I will think of something and I start crying all over again. I have been in contact with several family members. We are all trying to be there for each other. I also have a wonderful sounding board here-which I'm sure most of you can guess who it is. That has been helping me-A LOT!!! And of course my wonderful husband. He has been my "pillar". I don't know what I would do without him.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your thoughts and kind words. Thanks.

Dai and Elizabeth spent most of the morning putting tracks on her new MP3 player.  James played on the Wii and I did the housework.

This afternoon we put some pictures up (only been waiting since September 07!) and I finished two curtains of the four I am making.

Because dogs eat just about anything they find, they often get sick. So it's fitting to describe someone who is not feeling well as being "sick as a dog."  ?

I have just been catching up on 30 or so pages of posts, so I apologize that some of these replies are REALLY delinquent!

Cat, oh honey, I'm so sorry about about your sis.  How young she was.  Please, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.  <<hugs>>

Q, I'm so relieved that you and your house are ok, but sorry to hear about your co-worker's.  I understand that you are having a version of "survivor's guilt" that your house was spared and hers wasn't, but please try not to feel guilty about being happy you have a home to come home to.  And I'm jealous about meeting the Criminal Minds cast.  I really miss Mandy Patinkin, but like Montagna.  And yes, Shemar Moore is fine on TV, can only imagine he is even more so in person...and he seems like the back rubbing kind.   ;)  If you ever do something with the CSI:NY cast, you so have to take me!!!!!!!!!!!! k?  ::)  j/k

Erin, how's your nose?  Made mine hurt to think about it, but more power to you.

I've been beyond busy since getting back from the lake (which went well, got the house looking good).  The nights I had to work til 11 made for excruciatingly long days, esp the Thursdays because they already start early w/ weigh in (which isn't going well since I'm still out of commission, so we won't talk about that).  I have been putting in 6-7 day weeks at the office (went in yesterday, should have gone in today but just couldn't face it).  Bring home work every night (only do about 2 yrs a night).  Heading back to the lake for Thanksgiving.

Micah spent this weekend with me (yay) and since she is done Monday afternoon (classes end at noon on Wed, but her instructors said no class), will spend Mon & Tues night with me.  I love it!  We have so much fun together now.  She had her MRI last Friday and her appt w/ her orth. surgeon is the 8th.  I think she'll have to have surgery (torn ACL same knee that was scoped Sept 07).  She has made such a great transition to college, pulling As and Bs at midterms.  I have high hopes for her final grades and couldn't be prouder.

Weatherwise, it had been so lovely in October and the first part of November.  Then we got a few inches of snow and it all went downhill (I'm not a winter person).  We didn't get a major storm they were predicting, so it turned out to be a great weekend.

Hope everyone is feeling and doing well.  I have to get back to work.  ::)  BTW, Charlie Brown Tuesday night 8pm ET!!!



YAY you're back (even a short visit is a welcome one!!! )



thanks for your kind words. I will eventually get over my guilt. But I must say I have found a new appreciation for my place and have finally taken to cleaning it... as soon as I kick this cold I will finish and post some pics.


Sorry the foot is still bum... and that you're working so hard. Glad you'll get a couple days with Micah tho... okay NO WORK ON THANKSGIVING....GOT IT  >:(  you deserve a break.

be careful not to burn yourself out and get too fatigued. take naps whenever the chance arises. It sure sounds like you guys picked the perfect school for Micah and that she's doing great.  well done.


..I had a rough night, couldn't sleep until about 4am, just restless insomnia and then I slept in until 12:20p.  got up and took 2 old tvs and 2 old computer printers to a free electronics recycle place. came home and mowed the front and back yard, both of which were covered in leaves. I usually rake them up, but this time I just went over them with the lawnmower and mulched them. now I'm getting ready to bake some candied yams.  Julie & Diane just hung up a beautiful Christmas wreath outside on our front door they just made. It looks great.





um.... hi  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/04/ear.gif did somebody say yams?

My maternal grandmother is in the hospital with pneumonia.  It's a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG story, but the gist of it is that she'll be fine if she actually starts LISTENING to what the doctors tell her to do.  Which I doubt she will because she's a hypochondriac and an attention whore like you wouldn't believe. ::)

That's sounds disrespectful, but God help me, it is very true.  She's like the Andria of the octogenarian set.

you heard correctly. we have yams. first ones I ever cooked and not to rub it in or brag, but they're good  :) 

Julie's still dealing with her mystery illness. she'll be getting a CatScan soon. right now she has a friend over visiting her, an ex-boyfriend, so from what i can hear, she sounds perky and joyful. she always perks up when she's with friends. they're in the living room watchiong tv and talking and Diane is in the family room watching tv, and I'm in the computer room.

Jessica, I'm very sorry to hear about your maternal grandmother, really.  But I have to admit that you made me laugh out loud with your last comment (glad I wasn't drinking anything or I would have ruined my laptop).  I have an aunt who is exactly the same way, so I can relate.

Thank you for that warm welcome back.  I'm glad something good is going to come out of what has happened to you...but most especially that nothing happened to YOU.  I look forward to seeing the pics.

Um, well, *shuffling feet*  about that....I am out of the office testing Dec 2-4 (7.30 am to 5.30 pm), so I kinda sorta have to take work over to my mom & dad's over the Thanksgiving break.  As soon as I finish this reply, I am going to try to knock out a survey or two and now that we have our big mailing out, see what I can accomplish during my normal work hours.  However, I found out after work today that they dropped off over 3,000 scan sheets that I have to have analyzed by the 1st, so that means work has to be done over Thanksgiving.  But maybe I can take Thanksgiving Day off, how's that?  ;)

Thanks for being such a caring friend!!!  <<hugs>>

Thanks for being here to listen!!!!!  Thank you for your kind words, too, they mean a lot to me.  I worry that I did the right thing sending her to the same school where I work, but financially, I didn't have any choice in the matter.  I like to think she is making the most of it (and I have to admit it is great having a positive relationship with her again).

Sorry to hear about your insomnia, hope you have a better night tonight.

Hope Julie feels better (and they find out what is going on) very soon!  Keep us posted.

Ok, I'm off to do surveys.  Oh, btw, I found out today that I don't have to use vacation time for the testing I'm doing Dec 2-4....I am going to get to use consulting days.  Who knew that even existed.  I don't even know exactly what it means, but I'm glad I don't have to burn vacation days.

well sorry you're working over the break but YAY no vacation days burned.

On Friday- the day after the fire broke out work said those people affected by the fire could have up to two weeks off with pay without using comp time or vacation.  I took friday off because

1) I didn't sleep at all on Thursday so I would be a danger to the officers and community if I tried dispatching on no sleep.
2) I didn't yet know where I was going to stay so I had to run around town trying to catch one of those fabulous offers the community had out it was all first come first serve. Then I had packed clothes but apparently only shirts and underwear. So I had to secure clothes. I didn't have my first meal until 6pm friday. My last meal was 10 pm Thursday.
3) I didn't actually fall asleep until after Midnight on Friday/Sat I was exhausted and called work and said I would be in on Sat. 

my co worker called me at 1pm saturday and said the guy who was supposed to work called in sick and they had no coverage... so I worked for 5 hours on Sat. from 5 - 10. 

I worked all day sunday because there was no one to take my shift.

I took Monday off because that was the day I had to be at the hotel and also when I found out if my house was still standing.


Anyway- now the work has reneged their offer and only the people who lost homes get the time off with pay.... That means I have to burn 25 hours of vacation  >:(  I only had 47 hours to start with!

Man,you must've been exhausted,I know how it feels to do coverage when someone gets sick,you're relaxing at home and all of a sudden,you get a call and they tell you that someone is sick and you come in a do coverage for that afternoon or evening.

Okay, here is a dilemma for you guys that maybe you can help me solve:

For the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that the smell of cigarettes has been coming from SOMEWHERE and permeating our condo.  It took me a whle, but I finally figured out it was coming from Jason's bathroom, namely, from the pipes.  Last night/early this morning, I was laying in bed and all of a sudden, BAM!  Just the overpowering and disgusting odor of cigarettes.  I hopped out of bed, and sure enough, it was coming from Jason's bathroom again.  I turned the air freshener on high, stoppered the sink and bathtub, hit the fan, and shut the door.  Now here is the dilemma part...

I heard water running in the condo upstairs.  Given that the layouts of the condos in this corner of the building are all similar, that means that someone is smoking in the bathroom directly above ours and is blowing the smoke down the pipes and running water to make it disappear (there are no windows in these particular bathrooms).  Knowing what I know about cigarette addiction and how people hide that they are smoking, I can pretty much surmise that someone that lives above us is trying to hide it from someone else.  I know the gentleman that lives there; I have a passing acquaintance with him.  I know he lives with a lady (not sure if it is his wife or girlfriend).

So how do I approach this?  Do I ask him if either of them smoke?  Do I ask them separately?  Do I just tell our doorman and see if I can tack up a bulletin on the bulletin board?  I'd hate to cause strife between my neighbors if one is hiding it from the other, but cigarette smoke really bothers my asthma, and I'm sure that the smell will only get worse as the winter wears on.  It could be coming from higher up too, so I can't even completely blame the people above me, although the running water at 2:30 in the morning is kind of suspect.

What do I do? :-[

I'd go with the bulletin.  You can just say that someone is smoking and your concern.

I'm not sure how I feel, but I'm okay.  The flower in my Avatar is finally getting ready to fall off.  It's been at leats 5 days.  Most only last 1 or 2.  It must like 60 degrees around here.

Okay, here is a dilemma for you guys that maybe you can help me solve:

For the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that the smell of cigarettes has been coming from SOMEWHERE and permeating our condo.  It took me a whle, but I finally figured out it was coming from Jason's bathroom, namely, from the pipes.  Last night/early this morning, I was laying in bed and all of a sudden, BAM!  Just the overpowering and disgusting odor of cigarettes.  I hopped out of bed, and sure enough, it was coming from Jason's bathroom again.  I turned the air freshener on high, stoppered the sink and bathtub, hit the fan, and shut the door.  Now here is the dilemma part...

I heard water running in the condo upstairs.  Given that the layouts of the condos in this corner of the building are all similar, that means that someone is smoking in the bathroom directly above ours and is blowing the smoke down the pipes and running water to make it disappear (there are no windows in these particular bathrooms).  Knowing what I know about cigarette addiction and how people hide that they are smoking, I can pretty much surmise that someone that lives above us is trying to hide it from someone else.  I know the gentleman that lives there; I have a passing acquaintance with him.  I know he lives with a lady (not sure if it is his wife or girlfriend).

So how do I approach this?  Do I ask him if either of them smoke?  Do I ask them separately?  Do I just tell our doorman and see if I can tack up a bulletin on the bulletin board?  I'd hate to cause strife between my neighbors if one is hiding it from the other, but cigarette smoke really bothers my asthma, and I'm sure that the smell will only get worse as the winter wears on.  It could be coming from higher up too, so I can't even completely blame the people above me, although the running water at 2:30 in the morning is kind of suspect.

What do I do? :-do get defensive tell them to please keep their cancer to themselves.

Going to the chiropractor today. I'm also STILL saving stuff and I think I only have one more disk to go and if all goes well, this afternoon I will be reloading the OS on this stupid computer and then start rebuilding and start from scratch. Hopefully things will work then.

What do you serve?  Clotted cream, scones and tea?(I love clotted cream)



I didn't think Brits drank coffee  ;)


I served tea and coffee and I made a Victoria Sandwich cake.  The other ladies all brought stuff along as well.  So we had another Victoria Sandwich, some cup cakes, some cookies, a cranberry loaf and some blondies with praline.  There's loads left.

that's because you show up when they call you in.  don't do anything to make them mad at you until after the lay off.


And I have excellent attendance and I show up when they need me plus I get the job done quickly and neatly.

40 is our low right now.  There's other flower buds on the plants,but I think They're done blooming.  Just bought them so I don't know, but the cold hardiness zone is 9 (here) to 11 and heat zone is 12-1.  The only thing to worry about is root rot.  Just bought the Milkweed too.  It was labeled butterfly weed which I new doesn't make it in my garden.  I Found out that tropical milkweed is cold hardiness 8-10.  I'll just have to watch them this summer.  Lantana will grow and seed everywhere anywhere in zone 9.  I've been wanting to do a butterfly garden for years.  have 15 feet to work with and yes it's in the sun and hot as you know in the summer. 

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Aunt Rosie and Uncle Mike will be visiting    yeah!

well sorry you're working over the break but YAY no vacation days burned.

On Friday- the day after the fire broke out work said those people affected by the fire could have up to two weeks off with pay without using comp time or vacation.  I took friday off because

1) I didn't sleep at all on Thursday so I would be a danger to the officers and community if I tried dispatching on no sleep.
2) I didn't yet know where I was going to stay so I had to run around town trying to catch one of those fabulous offers the community had out it was all first come first serve. Then I had packed clothes but apparently only shirts and underwear. So I had to secure clothes. I didn't have my first meal until 6pm friday. My last meal was 10 pm Thursday.
3) I didn't actually fall asleep until after Midnight on Friday/Sat I was exhausted and called work and said I would be in on Sat. 

my co worker called me at 1pm saturday and said the guy who was supposed to work called in sick and they had no coverage... so I worked for 5 hours on Sat. from 5 - 10. 

I worked all day sunday because there was no one to take my shift.

I took Monday off because that was the day I had to be at the hotel and also when I found out if my house was still standing.


Anyway- now the work has reneged their offer and only the people who lost homes get the time off with pay.... That means I have to burn 25 hours of vacation  >:(  I only had 47 hours to start with!




THAT SUCKS >:( >:( >:(

I heard water running in the condo upstairs.  Given that the layouts of the condos in this corner of the building are all similar, that means that someone is smoking in the bathroom directly above ours and is blowing the smoke down the pipes and running water to make it disappear (there are no windows in these particular bathrooms).  Knowing what I know about cigarette addiction and how people hide that they are smoking, I can pretty much surmise that someone that lives above us is trying to hide it from someone else.  I know the gentleman that lives there; I have a passing acquaintance with him.  I know he lives with a lady (not sure if it is his wife or girlfriend).

So how do I approach this?  Do I ask him if either of them smoke?  Do I ask them separately?  Do I just tell our doorman and see if I can tack up a bulletin on the bulletin board?  I'd hate to cause strife between my neighbors if one is hiding it from the other, but cigarette smoke really bothers my asthma, and I'm sure that the smell will only get worse as the winter wears on.  It could be coming from higher up too, so I can't even completely blame the people above me, although the running water at 2:30 in the morning is kind of suspect.

What do I do? :-[
Just be careful, as to how you broach this.....

It could be the units below yours, as smoke rises, and the water would force it past the trap and it could enter the vent (but if you heard the water upstairs???).. 

I know what it is like, as I am a chronic asthmatic (and have been all my life)... It sucks  :-[ :-[ :-[  I imagine I would broach this subject by the flier first before I go to confrontational :-\\ :-\\ :-\\

It is definitely not downstairs, I know that.  The guy is a militant vegan/health nut and he'd probably go into shock at even being accused of that. ;D  Our other friend also knows the guy downstairs and says he's not a smoker.  However, it might not even be the people directly above us.  This building may be awesome to look at and the condos are fantastical rich people wonderlands (dunno why I'm here though :D), but they are really shoddily put together, so it might even be traveling from higher up (building is 14 stories).  The water thing though....that's an old trick my mom used to do when she was trying to disguise her smoking, so I'm assuming it's them.

She's in my thoughts and prayers, Howard.  Is she close enough to you now that you can visit or is she still in Florida?

The cold that I said I had earlier this week manifested into a full blown sneeze my brains out, hack up a lung, and massive headache fiesta.  So I was supposed to take the boy to the doctor today (nothing major, just checking his speech), but sort of couldn't, so Rice took him instead.

Now I'm just sitting here freezing and drinking tea.  Lots and lots of tea.

Figures I'd get sick on the day that I have to prep food for Thanksgiving. :P

I'm here. Going through the motions it seems like. But, I have been trying to keep my mind occupied by dealing with my computer problems. I'm ALMOST done saving everything and I will be reinstalling the OS either tonight or on Friday. Hopefully, all will go well and that won't take too long. If I disappear for any length of time, that means that I hadn't gotten back on-line on the other side.

As for tomorrow: We are going down to my mother's for the day. We weren't planning on it but we thought with the circumstances, we NEED to be there for her. I talked to her today and she wants to call Tulsa & my other sister who didn't go tomorrow-so we can all talk. Then there is my brother-but that is another story.  :-\\

Bigger than Tiny Tim I would imagine!  ;D




last night we had a power cut for nearly 3 hours which meant our heating was of so it was freezing  :( It also meant i couldn't cook so Himself went to the chippy  :) So there was a silver lining!  ;D

They were digging up the road at the end of our street so I went down to find out what was going on and as it turns out it was actually nothing to do with them but it was quite funny because the guy with the pneumatic drill stopped drilling when I went to speak to the foreman and said 'It wasn't me' before I'd even said a word. ;D




its probably been asked and answered but is chippy UK for barbeque grill?


so it wasn't asked... must just be me who doesn't know what a chippy is.

So, this evening, before going out to the bar, I was bored for a while and got to thinking about what would be funny.

So I posted one of those 'casual encounters' ads on Criagslist, as ridiculous as I could make it.

Check it out -

By the way, I don't have psoriasis, neither am I 5'3 or a 250lb Financial adviser.

Anyway, long story short.

As of 1AM, (4 and a half hours later) I have received 5 replies, I don't know if this is funny, sad, terrifying or both, but apparently there are quite a few women who would like to dress up as a clown and have violent sex.

We did it at Easter and liked it.  Since there are only the five of us we kinda like it this way.  But I do miss the big holiday affairs we had when we were kids.

Might be going back to California soon, and not for a good reason.  My grandmother had a major heart attack this morning and stopped breathing.  They managed to revive her, and they're monitoring her closely, but it's not looking good.  She also has pneumonia and is not breathing well because of that.

Sad news Jess, I hope things will work out.


As other members here, this is the first Thanksgiving Dinner without my mother. My wife was afraid of
how things would turn out now that she has taken over the cooking duties. It is a really good thing I
paid attention when I used to help my mom cook when I was a kid. I recalled all her recipes and things
couldn't Have turned out better.

Now is time for pie.....

Thank you for the good thoughts, everyone.  I just talked to my mom and my grandmother is still on the ventilator with about 50% oxygen.  It was at 100% this morning, so that is a vast improvement.  The nurse also said that she is off most of the meds they were giving her and that she does try to respond when asked questions.  However, she is sedated and restrained because she has tried to remove the ventilator. :-\\

At this point all we can do is wait and see what happens.  I've already looked up at travel costs, just in case the worst thing happens.  I'm trying not to dwell on that, but it is really hard not to.

Wow, horrible, horrible situation to be in. I'm sorry. :-\\


Thanks Gis....but I was one of the lucky ones... :)


That is horrid to hear, but it is the afore in the news.

But how safe is your job position?


I guess it's safe enough for now.  The CEO addressed the enitre staff after lunch to try to put his positive spin on it ...but it all went down like a lead balloon!!!  However, he did say that there were no further plans to cut staff numbers.......but let's face it...it will all depend on how far Australia sinks into depression.  :-\\

It seems the whole world is sinking.

It is, and, I am sorry to say, a large part of it is caused by us Americans, but that issue is something for the politics thread.

Today is Black Friday, the day in the USA when retailers have their best discounts on items they are trying to unload.  People flock to the malls, some waiting up to 12 hours in line or in the parking lot.  It is utter foolishness.  Today I will continue to digest yesterdays meal while still picking at leftovers.  :)



nope...but I do eat most of the side dishes!



They are the best part, I could live without the turkey, but not without the stuffing, cranberries, and mashed potato....oh, and the pies  ;D

I couldn't even eat the side dishes they sent us last night at CB,It was yams and mashed potatoes but I was too full from eating the faux turkey slices that didn't even taste like turkey but everything else was delicious. :)

Might be going back to California soon, and not for a good reason.  My grandmother had a major heart attack this morning and stopped breathing.  They managed to revive her, and they're monitoring her closely, but it's not looking good.  She also has pneumonia and is not breathing well because of that.

Dammit, I dislike her for all the crap she's pulled over the years, but I can't f*cking lose her.  I don't want to lose her. :\'(




Oh, Jess, I'm so sorry.  I hope everything turns out ok.  You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Had a very emotionally draining day today. 70 employees were made redundant today and there was a lot of 'cloak and dagger' meetings earlier in the week leading up to today. We all knew something was happening but couldn't quite work out exactly what!  I spent the afternoon at the pub supporting/comisserating with some of those who lost their jobs...I really expected to be one of them.....even packed my things in a box YESTERDAY.  I won't unpack just yet!!

I am thankful that I am still employed although extrememly sorry for those who may face a bleak Christmas/New Year....


I'm glad you are safe for now.  I, too, feel grateful to have a job and feel terrible for those who have lost their jobs.  Hang in there.  Hopefully things will turn around worldwide very soon.


Like others here, I, too, could do without the turkey (only eat a few bites), but have to have the dressing.

It's hard when fellow workers lose their job,especially this time of year. Thankful that you are still working.

Sorry Jess to hear about your grandma, but glad she is doing a lil better.


Sorry Gibbo to hear about your co-workers, that really sucks.  I know that they are closing the entire GM truck and bus factory that is near to where I used to live on Dec. 23rd.  Also closing the DHL (package shipping hub - like UPS) near there too soon.  Alot of people without jobs soon.  Makes for a bleak new year.

Too right. Himself has just come home with the news his company is up for sale. It looks like there is a slim chance that it might get bought and the stores kept open but whether that means the offices, where he is, stay where they are or the staff are kept on is anybodys guess. It looks like come january he is out of work.  :-\\
