Title: Whatever: The Open Lines Thread
Post by: TigerLily on December 15, 2018, 05:19:39 PM
I'm hoping this thread develops into sort of a wine bar, coffeehouse, discussion site. A place with no agenda. We can hangout and discuss and meander anywhere we want.  All topics covered in any other thread or totally new thoughts and ideas. Like friends who run into each other and just catch up on anything and everything. Gossip, questions, experiences. Art, Science, the Paranormal, the Normal. Your day. Deep philosophy to giggling at the absurd. And being absurd ourselves. Grab your favorite beverage. Settle into a comfy chair and chat. About whatever

Any thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea? Stupid idea? Waddaya guys think? I'll check back later to see if there is any interest

Mrs. Walks_At_Night and I went out to dinner tonight,  We had a nice chat while waiting for our meal.  There were two ladies about our age that sat behind us and they did the same.   There was an older couple near us and they also appeared to have a nice conversation together.   Then a young, early 20's couple, apparently on a date, sat at the table next to us.   After ordering, they just sat there monkeying around on their cell phones and didn't interact with one another at all.  Seems unhealthy to me but maybe I'm just turning into a grumpy, old, get off my lawn kind of a dude?

No. There's definitely something wrong with post millenials.

It's also a basic lack of manners. If you are engaged in a face to face conversation, that takes precedent over a text or phone call, barring an actual emergency.

It was rather weird. 

They seemed comfortable enough around one another so as to indicate it wasn't a first date and even if it was, there wasn't enough time for it to head South.

Yep, and it's completely unnatural to sit across from someone, anyone and not speak let alone being buried into their little gadgets. Flat out weird.


While we're on dinner outings what does everybody tip? We're usually at the 20% mark when things are good but it infuriates me that they all tip out at the end of the night and share the wealth. It's pure fucking socialism. We actually had to force (I think her name was Erin) to accept a cash tip handed to her under the table last night and even then she was slightly uncomfortable about it. And that in itself pisses me off that she has become so socially conditioned to dole out to others what SHE deserved and earned!

Too much?

You said it yourself Walks.  They were a young couple in their early twenties.  Us older folk shouldn't get mad at them.  Let them have their time in the sun.  They will probabley change in time.  Ageing does that, sadly.

I agree with you on the tips thing. I waitressed in college and it pissed me off to have to share my tips with other waitresses who were rude to the customers or who were new and sucked. I left one job at an Italian restaurant I worked at because I had to share the tips with the owner and she only picked up a few tables at the beginning of the evening and at the end. I busted my ass the rest of the night.

Oh I suppose so Rixx.  I see something similar at work with the young Engineers.   As soon as they hit a snag, they look the issue up on Google and usually have a solution right away and just move on.  Efficient?  You bet! Of course the issue is when the Googler doesn't spit out a solution.  Then some of the other gray hairs or myself get a visit as they are stuck.  What happens thirty years from now when everyone is looking for answers from the beast and no one is feeding them into it?

Millennials and phones: While reading these posts, I got a mental picture of a few Ellgabbers sitting at the table with some of the Uninitiated. They were posting and chatting with us while their live companions looked on and fumed

Morg  sounds like such a character and so smart! I have mentioned this before but I once saw a doc on PBS about crows. Absolutely fascinating. Their mental acuity and ability to logic out resolutions to puzzles was off the charts. They beat every other kinds of animals including chimps (but excepting humans, I assume). The documentary was either Nature of NOVA, I believe. I'm a cat person but I once read a book where the protagonist got a raven companion. Ever since then I have wanted a raven. But never with 3 cats in the house

Tips: I tip 20% as a matter of form. I go out a lot with girlfriends and have been told that waitpersons  consider a gaggle of females as notoriously bad tippers. The younger the worse.  A friend educated me when we were still in high school, if the service is horrible tip a penny so the person knows you didn't forget but just didn't think the service was worth any more

I'm glad this seems to have gotten off to a good start. Nice exchanging thoughts with people I don't run into often enough. Have a nice evening, all

^^;;;;; Okay, I openly admit, I'm reading this on my tablet across the casual restaurant table from my husband who's playing his portable game.
For us, going out is more of a chance to just escape the solitary walls of our apartment. We can be among people with limited interaction so no fears of language or guest etiquette mistakes.
Just to note, it's greatly different when we're out with other people.

Now, I don't ignore him...most of the time. ;) Usually we actually end up kind of using the things on our devises as more conversation starters. "Oh I saw this today." "Oh I read about such-and-such". Sometimes we'll both find something interesting and just exchange tablets then talk about it. I'll especially do that with family stuff because I'm the one with social media. "Oh your aunt wanted you to see this" sort of stuff.
Usually he has no interest in gab-related things, except I haven't been able to resist showing him a bunch of things that make me laugh, especially Bluejays creations. :)

Hi, TL. I'm like you--I like the lived-in look.

I agree. I prefer to get my news on line where I can read as much as I want and not have to settle for a sound bite.


We did a cross country camping trip this past summer. We generally camp in Federal Forest campgrounds which are almost always miles away from cell coverage and have very little TV coverage. Even with cell booster, service was limited most places. Whenever we stopped to eat, we both would hop on our phones to catch up with the world. I wonder how many tisk, tisked over the older couple more engaged in their phones than each other.

  You are right.  I want to tip. I want to let my server or another stand out know that they did an exceptional job.  Why would I want  part of my tip going to the sommelier?  If I picked the wine for my dinner? The server should be the one receiving my tip.  IF, my server has been assisted in an able manner by some member of her team, then I will leave it to her discretion if she wants to share.

When I figure my tip, I don't include the bottle of wine unless the Sommelier has assisted me in choosing.  And in my book, that means bring me a taste of the wine suggested if there is a bottle opened or something that is similar in profile to what he is suggesting.  You want me to remember you with a tip?  Stand the fuck out!

The younger the worse.  A friend educated me when we were still in high school, if the service is horrible tip a penny so the person knows you didn't forget but just didn't think the service was worth any more


TL, I had a girlfriend who was a wait person.  She had been trained at a higher end restaurant by a long experienced waiter.  He had instructed her that in tipping, if the customer had shitty service they would put a few pennies on the table.  If it had been the service that everyone craves, a good wait person would find the appropriate tip and small amount of change stacked on the receipt plate.  8 cents, 13 cents, stacked neatly.  This was to communicate that the wait person had given that service and the recipient wanted to show that they had taken the time to acknowledge them, by tipping appropriately and stacking neatly, a small odd sum.  Kinda like a golf clap. 

My girlfriend at the time thought that she was getting her leg pulled.  Until she did get one of those tips....and a small stack of coin. I believed her.  Of course, she told me that she loved me, too.

It's a scam by restaurant owners to financially support the underpaid employees.

Agreed. Fairly pay the employees like any other employee in the service sector. Either they are polite and can do their job or they can't.  Keeping a tipping system in place just enables the restaurant owners to continue to be cheap bastards.

On the 20% though, until there is a change in the larger system, this could be kind of bad if it were seen as naive, to staff they depend on that for survival.

I don't agree with this mandatory tipping bullshit in bars and restaurants.
It's a scam by restaurant owners to financially support the underpaid employees.
If I tip it's only 10%, max.
Those who brag that they tip 20% or more are naive fools being taken for a ride.

Tipping is considered a sign of bad service in Japan. Of course, they actually pay their workers... Is it still done in America that most food places pay the waiters like $4 and expect them to make up the rest with tips?

Not quite that bad but yeah. A strange system but, in many cases, waiting tables is a side-job, entry level, student job, or a temporary thing (in theory) whereas in some other countries it is an actual job/career even and you can find the same waiters for years at a place and they really know the food, wine, location, etc.

Well tipping is a rare thing. Quality service is highly valued here. You don't really last long in the job if you are not meeting those standards. It also leads more to a "what do I do with this" reaction.

First off all, doofus. Nobody's "bragging" about how much they tip. If the service is crap and the food even worse we'll send it back, not pay a thing (unless we had drinks) and leave and possibly never go back. If my wife had her way she'd tip more than 20% for great service but she's insane.  not really..    :-\

I'm hoping this thread develops into sort of a wine bar, coffeehouse, discussion site. A place with no agenda. We can hangout and discuss and meander anywhere we want.  All topics covered in any other thread or totally new thoughts and ideas. Like friends who run into each other and just catch up on anything and everything. Gossip, questions, experiences. Art, Science, the Paranormal, the Normal. Your day. Deep philosophy to giggling at the absurd. And being absurd ourselves. Grab your favorite beverage. Settle into a comfy chair and chat. About whatever

Any thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea? Stupid idea? Waddaya guys think? I'll check back later to see if there is any interest

I like this idea greatly, thank you

Yep, and it's completely unnatural to sit across from someone, anyone and not speak let alone being buried into their little gadgets. Flat out weird.


While we're on dinner outings what does everybody tip? We're usually at the 20% mark when things are good but it infuriates me that they all tip out at the end of the night and share the wealth. It's pure fucking socialism. We actually had to force (I think her name was Erin) to accept a cash tip handed to her under the table last night and even then she was slightly uncomfortable about it. And that in itself pisses me off that she has become so socially conditioned to dole out to others what SHE deserved and earned!

Too much?

It all depends on the nature of the dysfunction, but I'm a big fan of non-defensive communication. Also being able and willing to leave if things are truly intolerable.

Of course, there always is the option of bailing in favor of a vacation elsewhere. Let 'em bicker while you sip a mai tai. 8)

Hey Zen! Great to see you! Speaking of OCD, I have a friend who has to straighten out Every. Single. Fringe. on his persian carpet. I'm sure my own housekeeping skills must make him a little (more) nuts

I was at the home of a friend who had an OCD husband.  Found out when I everso slightly moved a couple refrigerator magnets to see the photos that were in the little frames. He came along and asked aloud who had moved the magnets! I said it was me and he fixed them. I decided to test him. When they were elsewhere i just tapped a picture frame in the living room that was on the wall. Just a hair crooked. He came in and we began chatting, he was pacing and talking and then without missing a beat he straightened the frame.
Granted, the house was spottless and neat, but I don't know how living with that would be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ahhh I probably can’t help, but i can give you a good description that might help you put yours on a descriptive level of shite.

Let’s start with the fact that my parents didn’t celebrate Christmas in any way shape or form, due to some ridiculous religious beliefs.

My formative years were spent being segregated from kids at school who did Christmas festivities and not doing anything special during the festive season. No present giving at school, no church services, no nativity plays, no carol singing, no christmas fairs... you get the idea.

I never really formed any Christmas traditions that most people have, and in fact I never decorated a Christmas tree until I was married and properly living with my husband.

My remaining siblings now celebrate, as does my mother (she has drifted away from the hokey religion). The act of giving presents is nice, and the season itself is nice now I can participate, but it’s how I imagine moving to a country that has a seasonal event you are sort of adopted into. I do it but don’t understand the sense memories that I think most people have.

Two of my siblings no longer talk to two of my other siblings. They really hate one another. I talk to everyone. There’s a Venn diagram which is used for who goes where, and when - my mother is shared around like the child of a divorced couple.

This year we have Christmas with one sister, then Boxing Day to relax and then my other sibling and my mum for the day after Boxing Day.

I generally buy a bottle of Baileys and get absolutely pissed and just try and survive. Strangely enough it’s the only day of the year I actually want to drink heavily. I barely drink the rest of the year.

Oh add to that the fact that Marital Unit’s mum died a few years ago on Christmas Day which means it’s always a bit of a sombre affair.

So I spose the answer to your question: Drink.

There is no contact or talk between the two factions, any talk about the other faction is met with tantrums. No attempts made to draw into one side or another, and I don’t take kindly to attempts as they have found out. Last time they were in the same room was my dad’s funeral and there was no speaking to one another then either.

Prior to that was the hospital when my dad died, I was there with my mum and two sisters, the other sister turned up when I had rung and he had passed and she refused to come into the room until my other two sisters had left.

It’s childish and ridiculous. I leave them to it at this point. Life is too short to be like this to one another, but they are all as stubborn as me so it’s no wonder we have this impasse.

Every person has their own story of life. I am sad to learn that you did not have the magic of Christmas growing up. Religions has done so much harm to so many people. With that being said. I grew up with the magic of Christmas. My family and friends will stop over Christmas Eve. Food, gifts, drinks and church are on my list. Christmas morning at my home, again more family, gifts and breakfast. Christmas Dinner at my brother’s home. Lots of meat, drinks, gifts and fun. Christmas night, back to my home…more family, gifts, food and drinks. Maybe some live music will be played in my kitchen. Late Christmas night, a visit to Cousin Joe’s home to visit with more friends/family.
December 26th—sleeping most of the day. This year, for a change I have a cute small live tree. I am trying to make this Christmas less crazy. Wish you and yours a Christmas that has some magic in it.

"The Season's Upon Us". Fun video that captures some of the Christmas Holiday and the craziness. At this point in time, in my home, things never get too crazy, since we have small children standing by and watching the adults. We try to keep Christmas as a day of magic. However, at cousin Joe's home things get very crazy. It is the end of a long day and now most of us are drunk. One Christmas night gathering at cousin Joe's, my young nephew got stinking drunk at the kitchen table. Around 5:30 am, he started to vomit. Due to his inexperience, he did not run to the bathroom. He vomited on top of the dog's head. The dog, Sofia was shocked. Sofia started to run around the kitchen and shaking the vomit off her head and body. Everyone in the room was hit by the flying vomit. We all started running away from Sofia and the vomit.  End of this true story.

The only sensible course is to do your own thing. Rise up over the sorrows in life. My father was #9 of 10 children. Also raised during the depression era. He came from a humble family with strong family ties. He has passed over. However, his great love for his family lives on. He has 2 great grand children names after him.

YES!. We are only human and not prefect.  In my family the number one rule is don't disagree with each other. If you disagree either stay quiet or talk it out face to face privately. Number two rule--if you are going to vomit--do it in the bathroom.

My nephew used to get very car sick, he was about 7 or 8 on a rather long car ride and thought he was going to be sick. Suffice to say he got a physics 101 about velocity of liquids out the window of a moving vehicle and learnt quickly which way to face.....

On, I can only imagine this learning of physics 101. One more vomit rule. Do not vomit into your brother's coat pocket. As children, my brothers and I were visiting an elderly couple who had given us stale candy. My younger brother started to vomit and did not know where the bathroom was. So he open our brother's coat pocket and vomited the stale candy into the pocket.  It turned out to be a bad move.

Wondering if anyone has watched the British documentary television series "History Cold Case"?  In one of the episodes the team seek to put a name and face to a 19th-century female found in a pauper's grave in Cross Bones, London. Cross Bones is a disused post-medieval burial ground. This TV series only lasted 2 years. "SAD". I watch it on youtube and each episode does not disappoint.

My remaining siblings now celebrate, as does my mother (she has drifted away from the hokey religion). The act of giving presents is nice, and the season itself is nice now I can participate, but it’s how I imagine moving to a country that has a seasonal event you are sort of adopted into. I do it but don’t understand the sense memories that I think most people have.

Two of my siblings no longer talk to two of my other siblings. They really hate one another. I talk to everyone. There’s a Venn diagram which is used for who goes where, and when - my mother is shared around like the child of a divorced couple.

This year we have Christmas with one sister, then Boxing Day to relax and then my other sibling and my mum for the day after Boxing Day.

I generally buy a bottle of Baileys and get absolutely pissed and just try and survive. Strangely enough it’s the only day of the year I actually want to drink heavily. I barely drink the rest of the year.

Oh add to that the fact that Marital Unit’s mum died a few years ago on Christmas Day which means it’s always a bit of a sombre affair.

So I spose the answer to your question: Drink.
Oh wow.  That really puts things in perspective.  :-\. My heart goes out to you.

Your welcome. Thanks for putting up this subject. I love this song, too.  I also love Pee Wee Herman. However, I can only watch his shows/movies so many time. Over in the Drama subject, it seems that the facebook banned one is letting his stream off over there. It has the Pee Wee Herman feel to it.
Pee-wee: I know you are but what am I?
Francis: You're a nerd!
Pee-wee: I know you are but what am I?
Francis: You're an idiot!
Pee-wee: I know you are but what am I?


Someone I knew had a tape of the HBO Peewee Herman Show. Genius hilarity! I found it on YouTube and was going to post it here for the Uninitiated but it's in 4 parts and don't have time. Worth the lookup for anyone interested

I vividly remember seeing Pee Wee's Big Adventure in the theater in 1985. Earlier in the day I bought an oversized toothbrush, knowing I was going to see the Pee Wee movie later in the evening. The whole day was fun and the movie was the icing on the cake. After the movie a local celebrity known for a particular gameshow got into a thing with either a parking attendant or a valet over some kind of parking dispute at this lot/garage and was causing a scene.

The movie is excellent and is still one of my all time favorites. I'm not even much of a Tim Burton fan but I think that movie was pure gold. Burton is actually in the movie, when PeeWee is depressed and in the pouring rain, the lead thug who speaks is actually Tim Burton who PeeWee gives a HISS to.

Awesome movie though... The characters all around, the scenery, Dottie², and the cameos by several people like Cassandra Peterson. I think anything with Elizabeth Daily was good. She pops up in several really fun and mega cool 80s movies, sometimes with her band (IE: Better Off Dead, which is an A+ comedy and also from 1985).

1985 spawned a ton of good movies and albums. Good year for metal axes too, especially Ibanez. Attached is one my Prolines. Not the most collectible, but fun and was made in 1985. Picture is total shit. It is more of a Pepto Bismal color in real life. My 2nd pink 1660 but currently my only pink one. I think I have 13 Ibanez axes that were built in 1985. I don't really like playing newer guitars and I prefer them pointy. I collect Japanese Destroyers and Vs of the 70s and 80s and over a dozen of them have 1985 serials. Which reminds me... Cereal... in 1985 cereal was also really good but I don't do that anymore, I don't even drink Coke/Pepsi or anything related. New Coke was a bunch of horseshit too. Rememeber that? That stunt might have been 1985 too, if not it was 1984.

Well, late to the party, but finally wandering over here. What a great idea, @TigerLily , thanks for starting this thread! I'm so happy to see gabbers who don't post in the HW or Dave threads much, too! Excellent!

I confess we go out to dinner a lot, and usually it's the first time we get a chance to check on the political newsletter we both like (then discuss the day's updates), check the guests for MITD, marital unit checks the bird list upates, and I sometimes briefly check Ellgab. But mostly we talk, and often end up chatting with people around us if the setting is right. Nice!

BTW I am NOT going to discuss politics at all, just mentioned that I like a particular newsletter, that's all.  8)

I've never heard of Japanese cheesecake. But I do like Japanese food and cheesecake so this is something maybe I should look into

The Japanese do cheesecake beautifully. They have such an attention to detail, if they do another country's cuisine, it's perfect. There's a restaurant in NYC which is 100% Japanese owned and staffed, and the cuisine is all Italian... but refined, perfect, blissful elegant Italian. Amazing!  :)

Ahhh I probably can’t help, but i can give you a good description that might help you put yours on a descriptive level of shite.

Let’s start with the fact that my parents didn’t celebrate Christmas in any way shape or form, due to some ridiculous religious beliefs.

My formative years were spent being segregated from kids at school who did Christmas festivities and not doing anything special during the festive season. No present giving at school, no church services, no nativity plays, no carol singing, no christmas fairs... you get the idea.

I never really formed any Christmas traditions that most people have, and in fact I never decorated a Christmas tree until I was married and properly living with my husband.

My remaining siblings now celebrate, as does my mother (she has drifted away from the hokey religion). The act of giving presents is nice, and the season itself is nice now I can participate, but it’s how I imagine moving to a country that has a seasonal event you are sort of adopted into. I do it but don’t understand the sense memories that I think most people have.

Two of my siblings no longer talk to two of my other siblings. They really hate one another. I talk to everyone. There’s a Venn diagram which is used for who goes where, and when - my mother is shared around like the child of a divorced couple.

This year we have Christmas with one sister, then Boxing Day to relax and then my other sibling and my mum for the day after Boxing Day.

I generally buy a bottle of Baileys and get absolutely pissed and just try and survive. Strangely enough it’s the only day of the year I actually want to drink heavily. I barely drink the rest of the year.

Oh add to that the fact that Marital Unit’s mum died a few years ago on Christmas Day which means it’s always a bit of a sombre affair.

So I spose the answer to your question: Drink.

That's a tough one to get over, @DynamoHum, but in time it will ease.

Years back my beloved father had a sudden heart attack and died on a Monday and was buried two days later on Wednesday, my birthday. I was in my 20's then. Our family doctor, who treated him and all of us and was a close family friend, came over to the house after the funeral (which he was at) where we were receiving people (my dad was active in the community and very well-liked) with a bouquet of red roses and a small birthday cake with a candle on it. He lit the candle and said, "Someday you will be able to remember that this is your birthday, too, and one day you will be able to claim it back as your day." It was amazing.

And you know what? That was many years ago, and he was absolutely right. There have even been a couple of years when I didn't even think about my Dad's funeral on my birthday, and that was a good thing. I bless our doctor/friend (now long gone himself) for that incredibly sensitive and wise act of kindness to me on that horribly sad day. It was an amazing gift beyond words.

May your Marital Unit be able to reclaim Christmas, enjoy the day, and let go the sadness in time.

You're most welcome, Dynamo. Sometimes it takes time. Today is my nephew's birthday, the one who committed suicide four years ago in March. I feel quite sad and reflective about him, and for some reason images of him as a toddler keep popping up unexpectedly in my mind, as I was very close to him when he was younger.

Truth is, he's probably happier over there (wherever "there" is), on the other side than he was here. Each year gets a little less hard, and soon I expect the measurement will switch over to gradually getting easier.

So sorry to hear of your nephew’s death. Memories of him as a toddler must be bitter sweet. Suicide leaves the loved one with so many questions. With the Christmas Season upon us, I think back on those who are no longer on this earth. I believe in “life after death” and that universe is a better place than here.

I like how the site self-describes as "addictive." Are people waiting for a Edgar Cacey/Ed Dames/SDM eruption on the Canaries causing an Earth shattering tidal wave or Atlantis to re-arise? Why is this site addicting? Simply because people miss how you used to be able to watch planes land and often airports would even have a coffee/cocktail bar where one could watch?

And, this time of year, some horrible old Eastern Bloc Cinderella movie from the '70s that has recently been lovingly restored with a grant from the Norwegian government.

"Cinderella" in Norwegian becomes Askepott, which takes the romance out of it a little.

In Japan, people traditionally soak in hot baths with the yuzu citrus fruit to welcome the winter solstice and protect their bodies from the common cold. A pair of adult capybara and three babies take a yuzu-yu, or a hot bath with yuzu citrus fruits, a winter solstice ritual

The winter solstice falls on Dec. 21, 2018. The winter solstice is particularly special this year as the upcoming December full moon, named the Cold Moon, will be visible in the night sky along with the Ursid meteor shower.

I love this, and also your previous post about the solstice rituals around the world, @TigerLily! I was at a solstice celebration tonight which was absolutely beautiful, with many blessings and invocations for a better, happier, more balanced new year.

Blessed Solstice to you, and we all need to keep ourselves in balance around this very intense full moon, too! Intense emotions possible! +1

You're most welcome, Dynamo. Sometimes it takes time. Today is my nephew's birthday, the one who committed suicide four years ago in March. I feel quite sad and reflective about him, and for some reason images of him as a toddler keep popping up unexpectedly in my mind, as I was very close to him when he was younger.

Truth is, he's probably happier over there (wherever "there" is), on the other side than he was here. Each year gets a little less hard, and soon I expect the measurement will switch over to gradually getting easier.

I don't know what lame but well-intentioned thoughts from an internet stranger like may mean to you, if anything, but sincere well wishes to you and your family during this and all seasons. Take care

Yokohama is a very pretty city, especially around the harbor. I was a bit sad that it was too smoggy so we couldn't see Mt. Fuji, but I still enjoyed it.

Wow, @twistedlogic, that looks exactly like what I like to do! In fact when I got home from dinner tonight, one of my doggies, Jackson, went tearing into the bedroom, jumped up on the bed (it's set purposely low on the floor) and started gleefully rolling around, flipping this way and that, twisting and turning on his back. He totally wrecked the covers, messed up the pillows, got fur on the blanket, and slobbered on me when I got down to pounce on him. It was quite the debacle, and we both had the best time! <g>

Stuff and nonsense:

1) The dog in the video is basically my puppy, but thankfully mine is only 13 pounds.

2) They're rebooting 90210 with some of the original cast. This Gen X'er who never missed an episode is pleased to no end.

3) Some bush league Red Sox writer is voting against Mariano Rivera for the Hall of Fame. (ETA: Turns out he's abstaining which is better but still ridiculous.)

4) Capybaras are wonderful. Capybaras crammed into a hot tub with fruit are exponentially wonderful.

5) We've had trouble finding non-light, non-weird-flavored egg nog around here the past few years. Hopefully, things will go better tomorrow. I REQUIRE NOG.

Purple is one of my favorite colors. It started as a joke because Bart would tease me for once having purple hair. And it grew to me saying that "one day I will earn purple boxes". And then, I did get them :)

Well if it works for you then I say AWSOME  :)

Bart, I'd like a 1966 Chevy Chevelle that's been restored and modified. It doesn't have to be the SS model; Malibu will do just fine since it'll be a resto-mod anyway. You are sooo magnanimous in giving ppl what they really need, why don't you hook me up with that? It can even be purple, though I must admit that I'd paint it maroon.

Hello Ellflings! Anybody miss me? Even a little?  :'(

My evil electronic qi has been in overdrive. I somehow killed my new Fire after only having it for two weeks. Tried everything to get it working again even with Tech Support but no luck. Finally ordered a replacement which should ship out tomorrow. While preparing my dead one for return shipping I decided, for some reason, to plug it in. Started working immediately. After sitting for weeks. WTF??? I guess now I will have to deal with a "never mind" re-shipping.

I have been slow death to electrical/electronic gadgets since I can remember. This summer I killed my new desk fan. This week I killed my space heater but a friend was able to resuscitate it. I have a drawer full of broken watches. I don't think I have had a computer of any type last more than three years. My original Fire was one of my longest lasting computers. Anybody else have to deal with this?  If only my powers could be used for good instead of evil, the world might be a better place.

Oh well, I'm glad to be back. I have been here every day to click ads and pick up messages. But had to use my laptop. Which I hate using. It gives me headaches. Which is another weird issue. Hope everyone is enjoying the new year. Love

Mandalas are so beautiful. I know they are used for prayers and meditation. But I also thought sand mandalas were "uncreated" a very short time after being completed. To convey the principles of impermanence and non-attachment. Did you ever see the movie Little Buddha? A sand mandala is uncreated at the very end of the movie. Very symbolic. I've always been drawn to Tibetan Buddhism and studied it and incorporated its principles into my philosophy in my own usual haphazard way

Welcome back.  The Fire is not my favorite -I totally believe you!  i'm not sure about ordering online, but if electronics break a lot, I would shop at nearby stores with really good return policies and save packaging and receipts for 90 days!  Out here, one department store had a 6-month return policy forever!  If you lose a receipt, just replace the same product and then put the broken one in the vox with the receipt and return it.  If the employee accepts the return, you have been diligent enough, no harm done.  That's just my theory. 

I wonder why the laptop gives headaches? Thank God for tablets!  I wonder if a mere Chromebook would give you headaches.  Chromebook s have abbreviated kevoards, though, and the backspace button is a stretch.

I used to have a cat that looked like your avatar.  He was a great cat.

Hello Ellflings! Anybody miss me? Even a little?  :'(

My evil electronic qi has been in overdrive. I somehow killed my new Fire after only having it for two weeks. Tried everything to get it working again even with Tech Support but no luck. Finally ordered a replacement which should ship out tomorrow. While preparing my dead one for return shipping I decided, for some reason, to plug it in. Started working immediately. After sitting for weeks. WTF??? I guess now I will have to deal with a "never mind" re-shipping.

I have been slow death to electrical/electronic gadgets since I can remember. This summer I killed my new desk fan. This week I killed my space heater but a friend was able to resuscitate it. I have a drawer full of broken watches. I don't think I have had a computer of any type last more than three years. My original Fire was one of my longest lasting computers. Anybody else have to deal with this?  If only my powers could be used for good instead of evil, the world might be a better place.

Oh well, I'm glad to be back. I have been here every day to click ads and pick up messages. But had to use my laptop. Which I hate using. It gives me headaches. Which is another weird issue. Hope everyone is enjoying the new year. Love

I missed you, TL! What paranormal energies are surrounding you that's killing off your electronics?
My sympathy on your headaches :( I used to get them but now I wear glasses when using computers and occasionally reading, my vision is fine without them, but it's stopped the headaches.

I have heard of such a thing, but it was before tablets. He couldn't keep a watch going at all. Make sure your tablet holds a charge before calling off the replacement!

I love mandarin oranges. But I don't wear them.  You can tell they are Japanese cats. The way the black and white kitteh was politely waiting his turn out of sight until the orange kitteh was done. Some day I should tell you about the completely different experiences I had waiting in lines in Japan versus China. Have you visited China since you've been there? Like two different universes. The best thing about China was how much cheaper it was than Japan. Everything else I would give Japan the definite edge

No, I haven't been to China. I was invited by a friend to go to South Korea once, but turned it down because Mr. couldn't go. I'm really hoping that we can visit New Zealand before going back to the states.

Maybe if you took better care of your lawns and floors your lipstick wouldn't have become "patchy" by the end of the day. Hmm? Only way you'll learn.

I asked my eye doctor what mascara she would recommend, she said Blinc Mascara. It forms little tubes around each lash. All you need to remove them is warm water, they just slide off.

While looking for a cool cat pick for @Spookcat 's medal I upon this story

Cry “Havoc!” and Let Slip the Cats of War 
 In more recent times, cats and dogs have been banned from Naval vessels, but they are still valuable on land. In 2004, a tiny Egyptian Mau kitten wandered into U.S. Army headquarters in Iraq. Dubbed PFC [Private First Class] Hammer, he became a ratter, morale booster, and important stress reliever to the soldiers. When the battalion was set to ship back to Colorado, Staff Sgt. Rick Bousfield contacted Alley Cat Allies and Military Mascots for help in getting PFC Hammer back to the States. PFC Hammer was vetted and quarantined before traveling to Colorado Springs, where he took up permanent residence with Staff Sgt. Bousfield. When Hammer was being carried to Bousfield, he heard Rick’s voice and began purring and kneading the arm of the transporter. As it turns out, he remembered his Army buddy after all.

USA Today adds this:

When Bousfield found out his unit was leaving Iraq in March, he decided he couldn’t leave a member of his team behind.

“He has been through mortar attacks,” said Bousfield, a 19-year Army veteran. “He’d jump and get scared liked the rest of us. He is kind of like one of our own.”

Pfc. Hammer got his name from the unit that adopted him, Team Hammer. Soldiers would tuck Hammer in their body armor during artillery attacks, and in return, Hammer chased mice in the mess hall.

“He was a stress therapist,” Bousfield said. “The guys would come back in tired and stressed. Hammer would come back and bug the heck out of you. He wiped away some worries.”

The kitten earned his rank after nabbing five mice.

This reminded me of Operation Baghdad Pups. They have helped bring many dogs and cats, befriended by US military personnel while on deployment, back to the US instead of being abandoned.

 "Oooh, TigerLily!" I hear you say, " tell us moar! " OK. If you insist

Did you know about 70% of the cats depicted in ancient Egyptian tombs and arts were tuxedo cats? Yep, Tuxies were the most commonly depicted (and worshipped) cats in ancient Egypt.

It takes most cats one to two weeks to open their eyes after birth. But newborn Tuxies? They open their eyes a whole 24 hours before any other kind of cat.
This may be somewhat difficult to prove, but many people believe tuxedo cats are up to 200% smarter than other kinds of cats. It's unclear whether or not this is the sole opinion of tuxedo cat parents

Tuxedos have magic. It's said that during a vernal or diurnal equinox, tuxedo cats become virtually invisible due to the colors of their coats. Completely disregarding the physics of light and shadow

 "Oooh!" The crowd claps with glee. "You are a font of amazing knowledge! Moar, TL. Moar!" Sorry. But I have to blow my nose and hack up some phlegm. And probably clean a litter box.  Read for yourselves. I'm not your personal Siri, you know

I grew up with a tuxedo cat.  She seemed very smart.  She never messed in the house, for like 12 years, even though we didn't have a litter box or pet door.  She just found ways in and out, and knew which people came and went at which times, & timed her releases accordingly.  One time, much to my parents' shame, she was stuck in a shut bedroom for something like a week or two while we were on vacation.  She had no water or food.  She survived.  I never saw her kill a bird, but she must have hunted eggs because one time a crow bopped her on the head.

We love Mom, but her boyfriends are trash:

https://www.briansussman.com/commentary/earth-days-real-history/
“Earth Day has never been a celebration of the beauty and bounty of this awesome terrestrial ball.  It’s always been an assault on man.”–Brian Sussman

On April 22, 1970, a trio of radical dreamers established the first Earth Day, an event designed to assault capitalism, free-markets and mankind.

The initial concept was conceived by Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-WS).  Nelson was Congress’ leading environmentalist activist, a sort of pre-incarnate Senator Barbara Boxer in drag.  He was also the mastermind behind those ridiculous teach-ins which were vogue in the Sixties and early Seventies.  During the teach-ins, mutinous school instructors would scrap the day’s assigned curriculum, pressure their students to sit cross-legged on the floor, and “rap” about how America was an imperialist nation, and converse about why communism really wasn’t such a bad form of government—it just needed to be implemented properly.

Nelson’s teach-in efforts were aided by a young man named Denis Hayes.  Hayes was student body president while at Stanford, and well known for organizing anti-Vietnam war protests.  Hayes heard about Senator Nelson’s teach-in concept and eventually helped Nelson institute the practice nationwide.

Rounding out the troika was Professor Paul Ehrlich of Stanford.  In 1968 Ehrlich authored the Malthusian missive, The Population Bomb, in which he infamously spouted wild allegations which included equating the earth’s supposed surplus of people with a cancer that needs to be eradicated:  “A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people…We must shift our efforts from treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.  The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions,” he wrote.



Oh yeah...I remember his tome all too well from back in the day, scary stuff, no?

Listen, I think this thread should be a sticky! It is IMO better than a random stupid things thread simply because it covers all. Cuz we can be mean here as opposed to random and stupid. I've done random and stupid to death. I mean really ::) :P ::)


I'm thinking of buying a speedo and a speedboat! You can't have one without the other..  although  if I do that I may be required to grow a moustache, buy a van and have shag carpet throughout the house.   So I digress; I'll just buy a speedo and a rubber dingy. A dingy will even fit in the hot tub! Eureka!!! :)

I'm hoping this thread develops into sort of a wine bar, coffeehouse, discussion site. A place with no agenda. We can hangout and discuss and meander anywhere we want.  All topics covered in any other thread or totally new thoughts and ideas. Like friends who run into each other and just catch up on anything and everything. Gossip, questions, experiences. Art, Science, the Paranormal, the Normal. Your day. Deep philosophy to giggling at the absurd. And being absurd ourselves. Grab your favorite beverage. Settle into a comfy chair and chat. About whatever

Any thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea? Stupid idea? Waddaya guys think? I'll check back later to see if there is any interest

I'm all in!   ;D

I have a similar story. Business meeting in Baton Rouge. Everyone warned me of the humidity. So I packed my lightweight suits. Suits *smh*.  I got off the plane at 10 pm. It was 85° and 90% humidity. I felt like I was swimming through the air. Air conditioning everywhere saved my life

Indeed. west coast, a month or so ago I was in Las Vegas returning from the east coast on a day where it was 114 degrees that day. The AC motor had died during the day and the home was still at 105 after the sun went down. No humidity but hellish, never the less.

I have a story from the opposite spectrum of weather. My first business trip to Seattle was right before 4th of July. They had just gone through a heat wave but the usual constant overcast and drizzle had returned. The natives were so relieved. "Thank goodness our usual summer weather is back."  "I know. I almost had to water my lawn". "Yes. I actually bought sunglasses" .  All this conversation was going on as we walked out to the parking lot to go to lunch. There was a steady light rain so I was doing that skip/fast walk that high heels require to get to cover. Of course everyone else was strolling along like it was a sunny day

I had really been looking forward to seeing Mount Rainier looking over the city. Not on that trip

That’s what they were teasing about today was some thunder and lightning but it never happens.  You might get one quick flash and a couple sounds of thunder and that’s about it.  I miss those types of storms especially when the power would go out and I would sit out in my pool table room to watch it come down.

I thought they have little shirts you can put on the dogs and it somehow calms them. We made a great effort to act like we heard nothing for Boodie's first 4th of July and she is not bothered. The thunder is so rare she will growl at it a bit, but doesn't seems scared.

85-degrees and 90% humidity is approaching chilly where I live.

Ah yes, so here's where the good guys are hanging out lately! Is it ok if a non-football fan joins in, I hope?

Last night's weather report for my area on the west coast of Florida showed one day, a week ago Friday, which was 87 degrees. Every other day in September was between 91 and 99 degrees, the hottest September on record ever.

And yes, I hate the humidity, it's horrible. I can deal with the heat because there's so much AC, but the humidity really wears me out. Feh.

My TOP goalie in the NHL is Bernie Parent.
Bernie and I are FaceBook FakeBook "friends". I still love PARENT.
Parent patterned his style of play after the legendary Jacques Plante and was often coached by Plante as well. Unfortunately, Parent had to retire early at the age of 34 after a stick struck his right eye and caused him to lose a lot of vision.

The other thing she totally missed in the video was the elephants. That is where I crested a hill to see an elephant walking down the road.  Several places there to get elephant rides if you were so inclined. Which btw is the primary source of mushrooms in that area.

I don't know what to do..   same fuckin thing every year. She should dump my ass. Although she'd be downgrading on the physical stuff.

Start off with the walk through the park to stop on the bridge where we got married as is the norm and then make shit up from there ::) How do I kill five hours of the day between the 9am walk and the 5 o clock dinner rez?  Fuck I wish this town had an aquarium rather than first nation shitass bullshit wood carvings of a fucking bear or hawk. I hate them with such a passion for being the whining bottom feeders that they are.

Foot massage and manipedi. Unless she is into jello wrestling

A walk in the park sounds great. On my 25th Mrs. BYU told me when we got up: "25 Years and neither one of us are in jail".

Always with the feet.  I do the massage thing (not as often as I used to) (nowhere near) We wrestled once and I accidentally broke one of her ribs.. I honestly think she could beat up most men. Hell, she gets paid to order them around all day. One of them, a real big burly guy cries a lot when he can't take it anymore. Lolol  Nice guy though

Yeah the walks and nature stuff is good stuff, we take the current dog (because they seem to die) and it's a nice way to start off. I'll throw in cigars this year! That'll be a first :)

@anniem Annie, THAT - is actually a great idea!  I've always wanted a facial and I'll get a scalp massage too. +1 thanks.

I just expanded on what GS suggested. It would be nice and relaxing, I hope fun.

As an alternative to that tongue thing may I suggest that you and the Mrs. spend the day perusing the George Senda Amazon Wish List?  Very, very romantic.  If you can find the end of it she'll call you her hero and love you forever.

Speaking of Dietrich, I'm pretty much done with his show and looking for a replacement.  I think I've learned all there is to learn from DDD's show and it is time to move on.  Any suggestions?  It has to be athe "right" kind of show - something to fit into the trajectory laid out below.

Once Siegel took over for Art it was so bad I looked for a replacement.  Settled on Lou Gentile who was an HVAC repair guy/Demonologist but sadly he got ill and died.  I was lost and floundered for sometime until I found Dr. Antonella Carpenter  and her Medical Conspiracy show but that was more of a rubber necking at a horrible accident kind of deal.  You should not look but you do.  That show ended when the Feds thankfully threw her in the clink. Again, I wandered until I found Dietrich, however I think his last 7 hour 20 minute broadcast was the end of the road for me.

Once again, I look for a show that follows the seldom used path that diverges in a wood.

I like the toilet paper so it rolls down from the outside. THE OUTSIDE, DAMMIT!

Gotta check on the kittehs 😺 . bbl

Fussy, fussy!

I used to need it rolling down and out from the inside on the bottom thanks to a little nutty doggie who liked to paw the roll downwards. I used to have it rolling down from the outside, But after finding much of a roll all over the bathroom floor two times, I switched. Took care of the problem, and he knew enough to stop as he wasn't getting his satisfaction trashing up the place.  ;D

He's long gone now, sad to say, so I'm back to the old rolling down from the outside.

There now, tmi?  ;D

Haha, thanks skittles.  I must admit, I had to check and see if Groucho was the person who said that, because it definitely sounds like something that Mark Twain would have said.

@BartEllProducer Lol  sounds good on paper, yes! But she's a fucking jock, swims and dives like an Olympian. My luck she'd catch a mean ol catfish down there and chase me around the park with it.  I'm going to have to watch my alcohol intake that day as I will no doubt be expected to  "perform"   that night and I don't do well under pressure!  Any other ideas?

I need the story about this.

Ok @anniem and @SpookPumpkin

So Mad Jack was a guy that used to work back at the Island of Misfit Toys .  From Wyoming [don't meet too many of them in these parts].  A good man - just a little paranoid is all. Especially about Mrs. Jack - he was one of those fellahs that think every other guy in the world was out to tap onto to his wife.  You know that type of dude - I'm sure.

He was going to take his family to the beach for a 3 day weekend once.  So on Thursday afternoon, ole Mad Jack walks on over to the ATM machine to grab some cash for the trip.  Goes to take the loot out and "Sorry.  Your account balance is $5.  Insufficient funds available for withdrawal".
He thinks to himself - "Damn that's funny.  WTH".   So he cruises back to his cube to call the bank and get the scoop.  When he gets back he notices a message on his phone from Mrs. Jack.  "I've left you.  If you want to see your children again, the address is........"   Turns out some dude was long dicking Mrs. Jack. 

So he kind of staggers out of his cube in a daze.  Everyone is like "Yo Jack!  Have a good time at the beach man"   *Gulp* goes Mad Jack.  In a daze he cruises into the head and enters Stall #1 [The tired bowl that had the cradle that Fat Bob designed to give it some support.  A picture of the bowl and the miracle cradle is buried in the Heather thread for the curious].  He decides to do away with himself but all he has is this tiny, dull,  pocket knife. He starts to try and decapitate his noggin but it is tough going as he starts carving on his neck.  Soon enough he decides he wants to live [or at least did not want to die on Fat Bob's bowl] and he staggers out gurgling for help as he did hit windpipe pay dirt eventually.

From there you know the rest of the story.   Pandemonium. Paramedics.  Followed by Coppers asking questions and Biohazard folks trying to deal with Fat Bob's bowl.  So the White Shoe Boys made a new rule - no blades allowed.

Good question.  I'm still trying to figure that out.  I think it has something to do with the fake MV (Lee) and the real MV being possessed by brig.

For those of you who haven't heard yet, I was banned from HellGag, er, bellgab.
I found this beautiful video and thought of ShredniVashtar.
Would someone who still has access to Hell . . . I mean bellgab, be kind enough to post it there to him on my behalf, please?  He's a good friend, albeit a brat-friend of mine.  Thank you kindly. :-*



Thank you so much for sharing this, Ms. Starr!  I love England.

Banned from the old country?  You naughty girl, you!  LOL.  :P

@anniem my question about the Polkadot team was completely ignored.  :-X

I saw it, but I was on the phone and that doesn't lend itself well to a longer reply. Sorry, did not mean to ignore.
Anyway it was determined that Polkadot must remain happy. It was determined that she should not be incorrect in any way, so a team was formed to keep the things stable. If anything seems amiss the team will throw themselves in the path of disaster, and take any and all blame for whatever could possibly head in Polkadot's direction. It works nicely I think. Either Bobs Your Uncle or I immediately take blame should anything seem to be going awry.

Rikki, do you drink tea or coffee?

Coffee every morning.  I buy dark coffee beans and grind them up.  I will have an occaisional cup of tea at night, especially while watching The Great British Baking Show.

Cloths or blankets used to wrap babies tightly so they don’t wiggle and thrash around. Probably needed to keep Jesus from falling through the cracks in the manger.

Oh we watch those too. There are times I have no idea what the words used are, and there are things I wouldn't want to eat but I like watching the shows. I also like Alton Brown's show that has come back Good Eats.

Forgot to mention the coffee. I like Dunkin Donuts coffee, either beans I grind or not. I also like tea, my favorite for many years is now called Carolina Select.

I saw it, but I was on the phone and that doesn't lend itself well to a longer reply. Sorry, did not mean to ignore.
Anyway it was determined that Polkadot must remain happy. It was determined that she should not be incorrect in any way, so a team was formed to keep the things stable. If anything seems amiss the team will throw themselves in the path of disaster, and take any and all blame for whatever could possibly head in Polkadot's direction. It works nicely I think. Either Bobs Your Uncle or I immediately take blame should anything seem to be going awry.
Amazing!!! Sorry, I’ve been sidetracked lately...
My team is amaze-balls.

Ok @anniem and @SpookPumpkin

So Mad Jack was a guy that used to work back at the Island of Misfit Toys .  From Wyoming [don't meet too many of them in these parts].  A good man - just a little paranoid is all. Especially about Mrs. Jack - he was one of those fellahs that think every other guy in the world was out to tap onto to his wife.  You know that type of dude - I'm sure.

He was going to take his family to the beach for a 3 day weekend once.  So on Thursday afternoon, ole Mad Jack walks on over to the ATM machine to grab some cash for the trip.  Goes to take the loot out and "Sorry.  Your account balance is $5.  Insufficient funds available for withdrawal".
He thinks to himself - "Damn that's funny.  WTH".   So he cruises back to his cube to call the bank and get the scoop.  When he gets back he notices a message on his phone from Mrs. Jack.  "I've left you.  If you want to see your children again, the address is........"   Turns out some dude was long dicking Mrs. Jack. 

So he kind of staggers out of his cube in a daze.  Everyone is like "Yo Jack!  Have a good time at the beach man"   *Gulp* goes Mad Jack.  In a daze he cruises into the head and enters Stall #1 [The tired bowl that had the cradle that Fat Bob designed to give it some support.  A picture of the bowl and the miracle cradle is buried in the Heather thread for the curious].  He decides to do away with himself but all he has is this tiny, dull,  pocket knife. He starts to try and decapitate his noggin but it is tough going as he starts carving on his neck.  Soon enough he decides he wants to live [or at least did not want to die on Fat Bob's bowl] and he staggers out gurgling for help as he did hit windpipe pay dirt eventually.

From there you know the rest of the story.   Pandemonium. Paramedics.  Followed by Coppers asking questions and Biohazard folks trying to deal with Fat Bob's bowl.  So the White Shoe Boys made a new rule - no blades allowed.
Wow, the White Shoe solution to that was no blades? Did they also decide only brown tile with dark grout too? Yikes.

Vera got a new bed today for my birthday. She's an odd one so we held on to the old one just in case she didn't take to this one. We laid the new bed down directly beside the old bed while she was actually laying on it. She just glanced over at the new bed and moved right on over to make herself right at home. Couldn't have been easier :o  She can be very finicky, somewhat annoying.   Nice to have the old ratty thing out of the main room. No matter how nice we kept that area over the last six years there was always this 4FT across round ratty dog bed.  Should have done this a few years ago ::)

Dear @sean92008 I know very little about all the behind the scenes drama that has ensued in the last five years. And I want to know less!  Mike Vara? Heather and all that and more...?  Heather has the big hands, right?

I'm taking a short break. I just got done chasing three cats and a bird around my house. My tuxedo, the hunter, brought me a present. He is now grounded and very insulted I would treat him this way after being gifted.

All three cats are belled. I don't let them out until after 10 am and get them in by twilight particularly to protect the wild critters. I have them trained with a big canned food breakfast right before they go out and then again when they come in for the evening. I live in the perfect environment for cats to be safe so really don't want to turn them in to inside only cats. But damn.

I eventually caught the poor birdie. Wrapped him in a towel and let him catch his breath. Checked him over then walked him over to the far side of my neighbor's property and let him fly into a tree. Seems ok
Bird 1  Cats 0. This time

Depending on environment, indoor kitties have a longer lifespan.

+9

I had three all make it close to 18 being near a trolley line, and heavy traffic (along with evil kids whose parents are equally evil). 

Had a friend who recently lost his baby and the doctor speculated that it was rat poison. Whether it was ingested directly or indirectly, it's a big risk. My rule is to give them windows to look out and an open window, even if just cracked so that they can smell and hear things.  I have one window that is on a ground level which cracks open maybe a quarter of an inch.  I also give them things to chase by throwing their treats all around the house. It gives them their tracking and chasing practice/play.

I was trying to figure out how @KSM’s 6’2” Amazon Goddess managed to sleep on a 4’ round bed.  But I was holding my tongue.
@GravitySucks I have specified many times when posting about Vera, that she, Vera is a dog. Aren't all the Vera's and Gertrude's passed on by now? New bed is 4'6" by the same. Almost not big enough.

I can say with absolute certainty that this new Best Western Plus has fine floors throughout.  Can they arrest me for taking this picture from outside and below the hill? I don't think so.  The electricians are holding everything up thus delaying the grand opening by up to three months!

Hacks!

I had three all make it close to 18 being near a trolley line, and heavy traffic (along with evil kids whose parents are equally evil). 

Had a friend who recently lost his baby and the doctor speculated that it was rat poison. Whether it was ingested directly or indirectly, it's a big risk. My rule is to give them windows to look out and an open window, even if just cracked so that they can smell and hear things.  I have one window that is on a ground level which cracks open maybe a quarter of an inch.  I also give them things to chase by throwing their treats all around the house. It gives them their tracking and chasing practice/play.

I don't think I'm making sense, am I?

No, not really. Just being honest.

Normally with these types of things local electrical outfits are invited to bid on the job, just like I was asked to do. They (Best Western) brought in THEIR OWN GUYS! I have no idea what their contract is about but they do have to meet all local regulations ETC. What I do know is that best western is paying for lodging, food ETC for these guys not to mention whatever they are being paid for the job. One hell of an expensive way to do it. Our deadline was end of this week, we finished last Wednesday. I was originally told the hotel was to open Friday, November 15.  That's not happening.

I no longer care. We're outta there---------->>>>>>

I'm taking a short break. I just got done chasing three cats and a bird around my house. My tuxedo, the hunter, brought me a present. He is now grounded and very insulted I would treat him this way after being gifted.

All three cats are belled. I don't let them out until after 10 am and get them in by twilight particularly to protect the wild critters. I have them trained with a big canned food breakfast right before they go out and then again when they come in for the evening. I live in the perfect environment for cats to be safe so really don't want to turn them in to inside only cats. But damn.

I eventually caught the poor birdie. Wrapped him in a towel and let him catch his breath. Checked him over then walked him over to the far side of my neighbor's property and let him fly into a tree. Seems ok
Bird 1  Cats 0. This time

#badcat

I have very rarely found feathers in the yard, maybe once every other year or so, but they catch a ton of mice and rats.

There have been a few times a scrub jay has dropped in to drink from the cat's water dish and been pinned down, shreiking.  All three times I've managed to run out to the patio, and with the cat momentary distracted the birds have flown off.

I just saw the rescued bird flitting around doing fine. All three cats are back outside lazing in the shade. This is what I like to see. Lazy cats

I prefer thicker, bun-length hotdogs myself. Classic ketchup, mustard and a bit of relish.

Apropos of nothing, since this is the open lines thread, I thought I'd share something fun with you.

At times I really miss my NYC a lot, and some of the regular events I used to attend there. Unfortunately, the NYC I knew and loved for so many years disappeared about 10 years ago, never to be seen or experienced again after so many (not great) changes.

This was one of the events I used to go to every year, about a 15-minute walk from where I lived, over to the East Village, and it was always fun.

Click on the square that says "see all 66" to see all the photos, some of them are really creative! Enjoy... sigh.

How will it happen? When? Will it happen at all? Will it be like The Matrix, Terminator or I, Robot?  Did you ever see Her where the AI soon outgrows humanity and leave us behind without a backward look?
How about the possibilities of Transhumanism which is supposedly within our lifetime?

As for NYC...  What?  Did it turn back into a shithole 10 years ago???  I thought Rudy cleaned the place up (at least the tourist centers).

Actually, Rudy was good at the street-level cleanup, and yes including the spitting windshield "washers." His approach, understandably, was that of a former prosecutor, and he mostly did a good job on crime due to choosing good police commissioners, But the underlying financial structure of the city was not in good shape, and as usual there were all kinds of corruption going on under his watch (standard for NYC and NY State, btw).

The guy who really did the city a lot of good over the long term was Bloomberg, who actually seems to be incorruptible, has integrity, and is truly a self-realized businessman who started out with nothing and built an empire on his own. He made a number of quality-of-life decisions for the city with which I strongly disagreed, like the type and method of bike lanes installed which totally screwed up traffic instead of improving it and protecting bikers (who don't use the lanes anyway, this is NYC remember  ;) ). But overall, he left the city in MUCH better shape than when he took over as mayor.

The city is now totally unaffordable, taxes are insane, traffic is even worse under DiBlasio, who seems to be a waste of the air he reportedly breathes, and conditions under him are reverting back to more of the mess they were pre-Bloomberg.

Tbh, I wish Bloomberg would become President. He is actually liberal re: the arts, pro-immigration but absolutely pro-law enforcement of immigration policies, financially sane and sound, and a tough and balanced negotiator. But it will never happen for five reasons:

1. He is from New York City, and I think we have had enough of politicians from both parties from NYC for now;
2. He has switched parties several times;
3. He is Jewish;
4. He has a long-time powerhouse girlfriend who has a major career in public service of her own and who is taller than he is; and
5. He is a short man.

The fact that he is an eccentric Aquarius and installed fishtanks all over the open office plan for his staff when he was mayor somewhat mitigates #5, in my opinion, but not sufficiently that he would ever stand a chance of being elected.

It's a shame, really, he's more centrist and sane than most, and would do his best to serve the interests of all his constituents as best he could, as he did when he was mayor. I say this even though I didn't like some of what he did... but I never questioned his integrity, which is going some in our current political environment.

Ah well, it is what it is.  :)

I do my best most weekends, but it's the nitrate-free sustainably raised stuff, which I broil. Soooooooo good! If you are willing to come over and clean up the broiling pan and deal with the grease after I'm done, I will be happy to do my part to consume more.  ;D

@Scary Penis I’m glad you said lasagna stew. When I zoomed in, it looked like black-eyed peas in some kind of red sauce with dumplings.
@juan  it was fricken great! Really hearty stuff.  Basically somebody in the back made a great lasagna. A Soup Of The Day had not yet been decided on.. so they cut chunks of lasagna and tossed them in a blender as ordered. Not completely blended but more like pulsed a few times. I called it a lasagna stew, it was not a soup but more of a rather wonderful muck!   

The hotdog sucked. I would rather a thicker juicier wiener shortened by about two inches. I don't like them hanging out of the buns like that.

Well that last part doesn't read weird at all, does it :-\ ::)  meh

Actually, Rudy was good at the street-level cleanup, and yes including the spitting windshield "washers." His approach, understandably, was that of a former prosecutor, and he mostly did a good job on crime due to choosing good police commissioners, But the underlying financial structure of the city was not in good shape, and as usual there were all kinds of corruption going on under his watch (standard for NYC and NY State, btw).

The guy who really did the city a lot of good over the long term was Bloomberg, who actually seems to be incorruptible, has integrity, and is truly a self-realized businessman who started out with nothing and built an empire on his own. He made a number of quality-of-life decisions for the city with which I strongly disagreed, like the type and method of bike lanes installed which totally screwed up traffic instead of improving it and protecting bikers (who don't use the lanes anyway, this is NYC remember  ;) ). But overall, he left the city in MUCH better shape than when he took over as mayor.

The city is now totally unaffordable, taxes are insane, traffic is even worse under DiBlasio, who seems to be a waste of the air he reportedly breathes, and conditions under him are reverting back to more of the mess they were pre-Bloomberg.

Tbh, I wish Bloomberg would become President. He is actually liberal re: the arts, pro-immigration but absolutely pro-law enforcement of immigration policies, financially sane and sound, and a tough and balanced negotiator. But it will never happen for five reasons:

1. He is from New York City, and I think we have had enough of politicians from both parties from NYC for now;
2. He has switched parties several times;
3. He is Jewish;
4. He has a long-time powerhouse girlfriend who has a major career in public service of her own and who is taller than he is; and
5. He is a short man.

The fact that he is an eccentric Aquarius and installed fishtanks all over the open office plan for his staff when he was mayor somewhat mitigates #5, in my opinion, but not sufficiently that he would ever stand a chance of being elected.

It's a shame, really, he's more centrist and sane than most, and would do his best to serve the interests of all his constituents as best he could, as he did when he was mayor. I say this even though I didn't like some of what he did... but I never questioned his integrity, which is going some in our current political environment.

Ah well, it is what it is.  :)

I really enjoyed reading this, a very thoughtful piece of on NY mayors

No, perhaps I wasn't clear. He does want to ban assault weapons (automatic machine guns, AK-47's that type of thing), but supports hand guns with background checks.

Well alright then!

I've been on what for me is a film binge lately, but all music related. A couple of weeks ago I saw Linda Ronstadt, The Sound of My Voice, a documentary on her life and extraordinary career. The film made the point, rather well I think, that she is often under-rated and overlooked as the first major female rock and roll star, and with an extraordinary voice.

The film touched me deeply for several reasons, mostly in admiration of her career and courage and independent, pioneering personality over the years. She has Parkinson's now, can't sing, hasn't for a number of years now, heartbreaking. There is a clip of her trying to sing with her family, many of whom are musical, and it is deeply moving. Again, she has so much courage!

But what really got me was that as I watched, I realized I have seen her live in every stage of her long career and live singing every form of music she explored. I saw her with the Stone Poneys at the Bitter End in NYC maybe 1969 or 70?, at the Lenox Music Festival in Massachusetts a year or so later... doing her country rock and rock stuff, introducing Karla Bonoff, the McGarrigle Sisters, promoting Emmy Lou Harris and others... singing  live on Broadway doing Pirates of Penzance (first at Joseph Papp's NY Shakespeare Theater), singing with an orchestra doing her Nelson Riddle songs, doing her Mexican stuff, you name it I saw it. I hadn't realized this so clearly, and I was flooded with wonderful memories of all those really great concerts all over the place! What an important and loved part of my musical experiences she has been!

I went into my storage locker and went digging, and found some prints of photos I took of her way way back when, from August of 1972 in Lenox, MA (I was so young then, but already shooting 35mm film at concerts and developing and printing my own shots in my little darkroom). Geez!

Here are some of them, just for fun. Sorry about the quality, these are scans of some very old prints, I took them on August 12, 1972.

Anyway, enjoy.

Reports on the other two films to come.  :D

Back in the day, as long as you weren't obnoxious about it, you could often go right up to the front of the audience at the edge of the stage, or nearly that close, and photograph away. NO flash was the key, not blocking any audience members, and being very low-key and quiet about it. I took photos like this at so many concerts I hardly remember them all. Somewhere I've got shots of a lot of performers, all from a long time ago, nearly all in black and white, which I preferred. I got good at developing and printing from color slides (I preferred slide quality over print film back then), but it was more laborious and I liked trying to capture the energy in black and white photos more.

Whew! Such memories... I seem to be in a very reflective place these days, lots of memories and emotions. None bad, but lots of feeling wistful for what felt like sweeter times in the world, whether it was true in reality or not. At least it felt that way at the time.

Ok, so the second film I saw, last week, was Judy, with Renee Zellweger. I was never a big fan of Judy Garland, but had heard good things about this film, based on a play from London about the last few months of her life.

I was stunned, to be honest. The film is a kind of masterpiece, Zellweger was amazing, really became Judy Garland, and I was left feeling I will never be able to look at Judy Garland performing or hear her singing again in the same way. It was brutal and very compassionate at the same time, a respectful but truthful exploration of her life, the inner workings of her mind and emotions and relationships towards the end of her life... and it clearly delineated the factors that led to her swift decline and early death.

I hadn't quite realized how destructive and controlling Louis B. Mayer and the MGM Studio system was over her, very very destructive, hooking her on uppers and downers while she was in her teens, and controlling every minute of every day, creating a false life for her for the public which was very different from her actual daily life.

If you get the chance, go. I'm betting Zellweger will win the Academy Award for this one, for Best Actress if not also for having produced the film.

Go even if you weren't a big Judy Garland fan, you won't be sorry!  ;)

So the last film I'll talk about is the one I saw today, Western Stars with Bruce Springsteen. That's the name of his new album and also the film.

Seems he wrote a new album of songs, first in a few years. They are reflective and thoughtful, and very good. He decided not to tour, but chose to do one concert of the entire album in order, in the huge barn on his farm. It has a very high curved roof, and the sound is amazing. He and his arranger and producer put together a 30-piece orchestra, his wife Patti Scialfa, a 4-woman group of backup singers, and a full band. They invited a very small audience, maybe 25 people, and set the place up like a bar/club.

The songs are intercut with reflective and illustrative commentary from him, explaining what he was thinking about when he wrote each song, how he developed the characters, what he was feeling, etc. It's actually very moving and interesting, worth seeing.

As a bonus he also does the best cover of Rhinestone Cowboy with glee, maybe the best version I've ever heard. The theater was not overly crowded, but most of the audience started singing live and kind of partying with him for Rhinestone Cowboy, really fun.

It's not in a wide theatrical release, I don't think, but it's playing smaller independent film houses around the country, presented by Fathom Events. Fathom Events offers limited run films of interesting arts events, sometimes ballet, Broadway musicals, restorations of great older films, etc. You might want to check them out!

If you can, and if you like Springsteen (I do, and have seen him live, too), find a way to go, it'll be better in a theater than at home!

Ok, I'm done now, I'm going back into my corner for now.  ;D

There's no such thing as an ''assault weapon''.  That is a political term made up by people like Diane Feinstein to score political points.

There are only 3 types of weapons, as follow:

- fully automatic:  the weapon continues to fire bullets as long as the trigger is held down (machine gun, already illegal)
- semi-automatic:  the weapon fires a bullet each time the trigger is pulled (all other guns)
- single shot:  a weapon that needs to be reloaded each time it is fired (like the old flintlock guns from 200 years ago)

What it comes down to is politicians and their media allies trying to ban more and more features of semi-automatic weapons, and, ultimately, all weapons.

Why should you dance? So when you are old you can be like the Deadhead and finally be a hit with the ladies

I know just the girl(s) for you! I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that you need some sweet lovin’ from a BIG girl. Not only will she eat pork chops while in the thrones of love making, she’d likely gobble your knob like a Thanksgiving day turkey drumstick.

Now that I have your attention, would you prefer import or domestic?

My friend used to imitate Dr. Ruth as part of his routine.  One verbatim (I think) bit that involved using meat to choke his chicken.  Another was a man who used sandpaper...

He's a cheese sandwich kind o guy. I am not. And I'll go not to far out on a limb here by suggesting the cheese was directly extracted from his girls undercarriage lady-town crevices, anal and otherwise.  YUCK   I've no interest in his recipes nor do I need his cooking tips.

Before Getty, maybe go to the artists and labels...    Don't forget to watermark and lower resolution & contrast before pitching them. I'm sure there's a tutorial online somewhere.

Thanks for the good advice, will do. Some of them, of course, have passed away, like John Denver. I had not great ones of Carly Simon at her very first concert, opening for Cat Stevens at Carnegie Hall. She could hardly look at the audience! I think I have Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits), Patti Smith, a bunch of others I can't even recall. I know I have the negatives, I don't know what shape they're in, but I don't know that I have prints of all of them. Sigh... another voyage back to the past!

I knew Sonny Carter well. He was a stutterer who overcame it well enough to command a high school rifle drill team. Then he went to Emory University where he took up soccer and became the first American drafted to play professionally. He got his MD from the Medical College of Georgia. As he had been in ROTC throughout college, he entered the Navy and became the first medical officer to land a plane on an aircraft carrier. He then went to NASA and flew on the space shuttle. Unfortunately, he died in a commercial plane crash.

I’ve also met Ray Charles, Little Richard and Bonnie Bramlett who punched out Elvis Costello for calling Ray Charles the n-word.

I was involved in Independent Verification and Validation of the ISS Flight Software the first time. 

The second time I was on an industry board of advisors to come up with commercialization of the pool to help defray the costs involved with operating and maintaining it. I think I actually saved the pool in one meeting when I asked a dumb question that none of the engineers had thought to ask.  If they had allowed the company to use the pool for testing the equipment it probably would have destroyed the structural integrity of the pool.  The company had been testing this device in a flooded rock quarry and wanted a more convenient place to test.

That reminds me of somewhere my father took us when we were really young. He had some property in Vermont and while up there one time he took us to an abandoned green marble quarry. I remember being very impressed by this gigantic deep hole and wondering two things.
How did they get way down there to get the marble
Why were there no safety railings
We did pick up a whole bunch of marble hunks.
I still like green marble.

No, dear. This is the "Whatever: The Open Lines Thread," all kinds of topics.

The Ghost to Ghost segment was requested by some listeners, not planned in advance. I can assure you no one associated with LPTD has any delusions that we are trying to be Art Bell-like. There was only one Art Bell, never to be replaced. This is just a fun little occasional podcast is all, casual and between friends, nothing more.

I have come to like, not love, the Patrick/Gish (I'm not googling that, hope I got it right) era.  Although the episodes became less memorable, The Brady Bunch episode was probably the highlight.  In the last couple, three years, Vince Gilligan was really setting up Breaking Bad in his head.  You could see its gestation.

It was just too bad that they worked so hard to close that circle on the UFO/aliens arc.  That was very much a jump the shark effort.

If I ever go back to watch this series again, I will want to watch it in its original aspect ratio. I really dislike the changes in resolution in different scenes.

I have come to like, not love, the Patrick/Gish (I'm not googling that, hope I got it right) era.  Although the episodes became less memorable, The Brady Bunch episode was probably the highlight.  In the last couple, three years, Vince Gilligan was really setting up Breaking Bad in his head.  You could see its gestation.

It was just too bad that they worked so hard to close that circle on the UFO/aliens arc.  That was very much a jump the shark effort.

If I ever go back to watch this series again, I will want to watch it in its original aspect ratio. I really dislike the changes in resolution in different scenes.

Vince Gilligan. Of course. I'd never put that together about Breaking Bad.  Which was sooo good. I'm watching Better Call Saul. It's good too but can't quite reach that level of dark magic that Breaking Bad had

Well. At least you will be a week ahead of everyone else. According to The Google we change next week

2019       Sun, Nov 3 at 2:00 am         PDT → PST

All three West Coast states have approved staying on Daylight Savings Time all year round. Just winding up the red tape 🐱

Really??? I'd like that!

Did that study take into consideration such things as after school jobs, homework, meal time and grooming/bathing?  If you start later, you end later.  We'll probably see more kids late for school or missing school because their parents' work schedules will not be changing.  That is, if the state wants the parents to be working.  And, for kids who are habitually late, who knows if they'll start arresting parents like they've done in the past.

To me, it just seems like a time shift. A democrat supermajority "busy work" project. In a few years, they will have a study saying if they started even later they would have more time.  There's always a boogeyman out there and the unintended consequences of slaying it probably be more detrimental than beneficial.

I just read a detailed article citing lots of research and data showing that the time changes to daylight time are not so good for our bodies, it screws with our circadian rhythms vs. daylight cycles. We'd be better off just staying on standard time all year round, plus there are no energy savings created by daylight time, which was supposedly the stated purpose of changing times.

These fucking fascists at PG&E.

For years, decades, they've spent the money they told us they needed to keep their equipment maintained and upgraded on fatcat salaries, shareholder dividends, and other waste instead.  Now that they are being held to account by the courts they've decided to punish their customers, hoping the 'customers' will pressure the legislature, who will then to give PGE a pass on their malevolency.

As an important monopoly, they are supposed to be regulated by the PUC, but of course top PUC and PGE employees go back and forth between the two organizations, and there isn't much meaningful 'regulation' going on at all.  PGE is a big donor to all the legislators in our one-party corrupt banana republic, so, you know, there isn't much meaningful oversight from them either.  All of which adds up to these scumbags assuming they can get away with these shutoffs, and ultimately end up with immunity from fires and deaths they cause.

Where I live there hasn't been any forest fires - ever, nothing - but we're being punished just the same.

PG&E is a cheap, greedy, dishonest, incompetent, corrupt, unethical organization, and I can't wait for them to go completely bankrupt and the management of our power grid turned over to someone else.  With all the corruption, bums, filth, incompetence, and now no power, we may as well be living is some forth world country.  At least things would be affordable.

The possible silver lining is the governor standing above the cowardly legislators and PUC and sticking it up PGE's ass .  He'd rather be president someday than just go along with all this.  He's showing signs of backbone, and siding the public. 

Speaking of the public, I'm going to do my best to not strangle the next person around here who says something along the lines of ''well, it's for our safety''.  Jesus Christ.

Jerry Brown's sister was profiting by being on boards and employed by many California utilities. 

Utilities were caught with a married female lobbyist fucking politicians to get away with relaxed public utilities rules (I can't find the stories in Google any longer, humm).  Video of a politician bragging that his conquest left her going up stairs with his ejaculate dripping out of her... Something about "eyepatch" panties too. Yep.

Corruption is deep. Nothing will change with a democrat supermajority and 130% voter turnout in areas of the state (aka voter fraud, a Berkeley study says 3.5 million ineligible voters are on the books in CA alone).

Hehehe.  What is hilarious is that I grew up in San Diego, it's always been like this.  I remember in the early 70s when we were putting bricks in toilets (in the tanks, silly) to cut down on water use. Turning off lights in school on sunny days, to save electricity.  Not watering lawns was another one. It's all been done before 45-50 years ago.  Bonnie Haynes did a series on our climate's effect on consumerism for KOGO/KGTV channel 10.  We live in the desert.  It hasn't changed over 200 years.  the only thing that has changed is that there is a lot more pavement around the official weather stations.  The average or median day-night temperature was 63.2° in the early 80s (I won a contest knowing that, I think in 1981...).  Last year, 63.6°.  Sun spot activity and polar shift changes how those cosmic rays hit our planet and jet streams form easily account for variations. Add pavement's impact and maybe those temps would have dropped without development.

PG&E = Capitalist Fat Cats. That's about as far as you can get from Communism. Not to worry, @sean92008 and @PB . More state regulations to check the energy conglomerates will be coming. Along with a shit ton more environmental legislation to address climate change. Where do you think the Diablos and Santa Anas are coming from? God?

Now quit shitting up this thread and you Grumpy Old Poops get back to your echo chamber in Politics. I will even meet you there and kick all your asses singlehanded. Or at least pick up a broom and start sweeping the forest floor

Who do you think funds your friends in Sacramento?  No one could be so brazen - and continue to have the ability to be so brazen - without the entire California political establishment in their pocket. 

There are plenty of regulations, what we need is someone not connected to PG&E - or the legislature, if that's not redundant - to hold them to account, and insist they spend the money they charge for maintenance and upgrades to actually be spent on maintenance and upgrades.

To show you how bad it is, here's our local Democrat paper upbraiding our Democrat governor.  I was shocked they would write something so spot on about their allies:

I really miss Thailand. Today I decided to try to make some Panang curry to use up a half of baked chicken that was going to spoil if I didn’t eat it. I didn’t half the little pea sized eggplants that are customary but I had everything else. I added in a handful of snap peas towards the end.  It turned out pretty good.

I'll be the judge of that...pass the curry...

@damon,

Chime in on this...

Cats: Evil Overlords or pussies?

😁😁😁
Because I am more of a dog person, Cats are evil or at least some of them. They are very sneaky. ;)

Of everywhere I've been Thailand is easily my favorite country.  Even given the number of farangs milling about everywhere.

Oops, put this in the Drama thread originally...

This is political, @VampireLily (heh, tried to @tigerlily you...)

Lower tax rates = Increased tax revenue
JFK's administration originally conceived of this system, at least that's the thing I have always been taught...

...and Nancy Pelosi told us the Trump tax cuts were going to starve babies and old people.

Sounds like the girl that followed me into the bathroom at a Christmas party. 

Heh heh, ahh...

By the way, I am of the opinion that Bernie Sanders was ripped off by a corrupt Democrat Party.
