3:18 am
herinfernallady

Maccas makes good booze insalation
3:18 am
Jandy

Well, you see, Sprite, my theory is that if you can remember to do that, you're not actually drunk...
3:19 am
Jandy

It's like no-one who is sober would ever drink shots... so you're always adding insult to injury when you get into that game.... "Shudder"
3:19 am

Big night lady?
3:20 am
herinfernallady

New years was a tad silly
3:21 am
Jandy

I can understand that, sprite! My husband only feels the worse for wear about once a decade... I think it's the extra foot of height he has over me! It runs into his legs or something...
3:21 am

3:24 am
herinfernallady

Never make new years resoloutions
3:25 am
Jandy

I am snapping at your heels, sprite, but am using this sick leave time to get moving again. Now I know there was actually something wrong and a reason I couldn't get moving, I feel better about it! So back to the treadmill... very slowly....
3:25 am
sprite

sounds wonderful, Jandy! You are doing well! Very slowly and step by step, that is the way.
3:25 am
Jandy

Puff, pant, red face, sweaty... no wonder I hate exercise! I just don't care for it and the endorphins everyone talks about seem to miss me...
3:26 am
Jandy

I get far more endorphins from hard shopping and good parties and great other things...
3:26 am
sprite

well, actually the best exercise one can get is walking, very regularly. No need to push yourself over limits.
3:26 am
sprite

I get the best endorphins from sex, but hey, who am i
3:27 am
Jandy

We nearly always have friends over for new year or stay at friends now, lady, cause you can't get a taxi for love nor money and it just ruins the night to be waiting for two hours!
3:27 am
Jandy

That was the great other things....
3:27 am
Jandy

so you are in excellent company sprite!
3:27 am
sprite

3:54 am

is he acting 'normal' for the rest, Ata? All this paranoia, I don't know... perhaps he should see a doctor? ;)

though I was told to grow up yesterday when I objected to him using the last bottle we have of my favourite fizzy wine that we can only get from France as a cooking ingredient in his moussaka
4:02 am

tssssssk. Yup, 'normal' allright, but highly irritating. Did he do it anyway?
4:02 am
Atalante

yes!
4:05 am

mEN ARE strange indeed....
4:05 am

I was unamused
4:05 am

we almost have banana in the grid, so sad its not there.
4:06 am

that is rude. I would have been very angry indeed. Are you getting along for the greater part? I am wondering, all of a sudden... happy moments to compensate for the irritation?
4:08 am
FMitch

Good morning, yay it's stopped raining!!
4:08 am
Atalante

unfortunately I don't really see him enough to have enough happy moments to counteract the irritation! He works all week, gets home at 9pm at the earliest, often midnight, he's out all day Saturday, and busy most Sundays ...!

Lovely to see you too sprite. PB is certainly getting a lot of wear and tear but everyone seem sto enjoy it.

Spangle is going through her morning ablutions. The paws are receiving serious and dedicated attention.
4:15 am

Morning all, I'm pretending to make tea and get the bin out, so excuse me if I disappear suddenly!!

I'm sure she'll be glad to get back, but I'm looking forward to hearing how she got on.
4:23 am

Is it six degrees of separation - six rather than five? Because I'm trying to work out how many degrees of separation will be between me and the Queen on Thursday.
4:24 am
FMitch

Do read the blog, facinating, and her hub is planning his next trek across Greenland, and Liz's bookshop opens in 7 days! Feel knackered just reading it all.

4:25 am

I thought 6. I have to be off, am trying to do too much at a time and that is not good for my brain or nerves. Big hugs to you all, it was great seeing you today! :)
4:25 am
FMitch

Queen, Haz, ? even Bye sprity sprite
4:25 am
Atalante

well, I dreamt about the QUeen last night, and you know me. so ... 2 degrees of separation
4:26 am
Haz1558

Bye sprite!. Well, the Queen is coming to Armagh on Thursday to distribute Maundy money. My sister in law is lending her hat to a fellow teacher who has been invited to attend the ceremony along with her elderly mother who is to receive Maundy money.
4:26 am
Atalante

will there be anyone there to give her Baileys shaped wreaths?
4:27 am
FMitch

There was a huge auction on at Ascot over the w/e some guy selling his entire Queen colleciton (pop not royalty) does that count?
4:27 am
Haz1558

No, indeed, it will all be very tasteful!
4:28 am
Atalante

LOL, thats a shame
4:28 am
Haz1558

So, me, the sister-in-law, the hat, the friend, the friend's mother, the Queen. Six degrees.
4:29 am

wonder if George has met the Queen
4:29 am
Haz1558

Lucky Queen.
4:30 am

No - husband reporting a hot air balloon in the vicinity.
4:32 am

I don't think inanimate objects count, sorry Haz
4:32 am
Haz1558

I do hope it's not the press trying to get sneaky photographs of George In Hiding.
4:32 am
Atalante

i see!
4:32 am
Atalante

queen arriving early?
4:33 am
Haz1558

Inanimate object being the hat? So, take out the hat and it's five degrees.
4:33 am
FMitch

lol, there you are then!
4:33 am
Haz1558

I had been harbouring a secret hope that she might come to open our new Town Hall. I've tried to find out but if the local press photographer knows nothing then I don't think it's happening this week.
4:34 am

nooo! you want liam to come home and open it!

Gosh, there's a thought.

ha ha one of my friends just dropped off a packet of uneaten chicken strips from her dinner last night for Hobbit. she is *so* spoilt
4:38 am
Haz1558

You're not going to hijack them yourself?
4:39 am
Atalante

I wouldn't dare. She'd *know*
4:39 am
Haz1558

No, I suppose the guilt wouldn't be worth it.
4:40 am
Atalante

exactly ...
4:40 am
Haz1558

We've started to give Spangle supplements in her food to help counteract arthritis. Unless you disguise them well, she delicately eats round them.
4:40 am
FMitch

Spaniel eyes would haunt you
4:41 am
Atalante

little brat! I shall give you my Big Tip For Getting Spaniels To Eat Glucosamine
4:41 am
Haz1558

What is The Big Tip?
4:42 am
FMitch

Why is it that animals do that? Think of the things they are happy to sniff and eat but a tinly little pil ... Noooo!
4:42 am
Atalante

instead of putting them in her food, get a little jar of beef paste / chicken paste / whatever flavour she likes paste, and coat the offending item in the paste. the paste has a strong enough smell to disguise the tablet. then its a good thing cos its human food and you're giving it to her etc etc
4:43 am
Haz1558

That sounds a nicer plan than ours. Open her mouth, pop the pill in and hold the mouth until she swallows.
4:43 am
Atalante

lol yes, that was my initial way of getting hobbit to eat them
4:43 am
Atalante

we experimented until we came up with the beef paste plan
4:44 am
Haz1558

I had to laugh one day - I rolled one in a piece of bread, offered it to her, she took it then literally spat it out.
4:44 am
hydra

I haven#t been able to ger Flad, the semi feral cat, to have a worm pill for three years. He has huge fangs and he goes wild if you try and grab him, and won't eat his food if the pill is crushed in it. I've even tried mashing it with sardines. Any tips?
4:44 am
lynxxx

I found a slice of salami wrapped around the pill was good
4:44 am
Atalante

looool oh yes! bread isn't cunning enough
4:45 am
Atalante

get the worming stuff you squidge on their neck, like frontline
4:45 am
Haz1558

I know. What was I thinking?
4:45 am
hydra

Oh! I thought that was just for fleas and tics. Didn't know you could get worming stuff to squeeze on. Many thanks, Ata.
4:45 am
Atalante

think that's why paste works, you can mould it round the pill until nothing is seen or smelt other than the paste
4:46 am
Atalante

you can now, hydra! its relatively new and utterly wonderful!
4:46 am
hydra

I'll let you know how I get on!
4:46 am
Haz1558

Is it important to do the disguising out of sight?
4:46 am
Atalante

it apparently doesn't work quite as well as worming tablets, but I think it must work significantly better than nothing!
4:47 am
sgams

I had to give my old coonhound huge antibiotic pills over Christmas, 2 twice a day, stuck them in a peanut butter sandwich! Worked like a charm!
4:47 am
Atalante

not with Hobbit. but I don't think she can quite see what I'm doing on the worktops. and now she doesn't care, any time I get the paste jar out of the fridge, she's there for her "treat". I can stick anything in that stuff!
4:48 am
Haz1558

I should make a list. Meat paste, peanut butter sandwiches....
4:49 am
Atalante

but yes, I think the more the dog thinks its a treat and doesn't see what's in it, that has to be better. especially with bratty too-clever-by-half spaniels
4:50 am
Haz1558

And still the paws get attended to.
4:51 am
Atalante

wow! thats an extended session
4:51 am
sgams

Well I swear Farley was laughing at the other dogs, because they all "only" got cookies and HE got Peanut Butter Sandwiches!
4:52 am
Haz1558

Was he disappointed when the Peanut Butter Bonanza finished?
4:52 am
Atalante

the other trick - throw dog a treat (sorry, grid word I know but its necessary), and then throw them the tablet-in-something and *generally* you can fool them into thinking it'll be another treat
4:52 am
hillary

reban
4:53 am

I think so! Yes!! Poor guy. but he got better thats the main thing
4:53 am

These dogs haven't really a chance, have they? It's a comfort to know that cmbining brains like this can come up with answers.
4:54 am
Atalante

they think they are clever ... but they don't realise how sneaky humans can be if necessary
4:54 am

Now trying to get thyroid pills into a 18 yo cat...totally different story

Still, their smell is awfully good, you have to give them credit.
4:55 am
Atalante

oh! cat advice - for antibiotics, there is now a 15 day antibiotic jab you can give them rather than having to force tablets down their throats every day
4:55 am
Atalante

too good
4:55 am

You should have your own web advice page - Atalante's Animal Advice.

Ya, we're onto trying our fourth version of this thyroid med....cream in the ear! WoW what next.
4:56 am
Atalante

nah. that's it. all my animal advice. in 1 go. I think. I feel quite smug about it though

4:59 am
sgams

We call all our cats (and two in particular) the ultimate psych patients....they all tongue their meds for ages and ages and finally spit them out LONG after you think they swallowed them.
4:59 am
Eva

Hi everyone. I have a wonderful pill"gun" I got from the vet-looks like a long straw with a plunger in it and a rubber tip which holds the pill. You draw back the plunger and when you push it in a little puff of air pops the pill down the cats throat without having to put fingers in cat's mouth. Takes a little practice , but merp gets three pills every morning and it's usually easy.
4:59 am
Atalante

vets and owners a lot, I'm sure! anything to get their drugs sold rather than competitors. the antibio jab is called "Convenia". for obvious reasons
5:00 am
Haz1558

Ah, a mechanical device enters the competition.
5:01 am
sgams

Did you all know that if you give a dog a pill and hold his mouth shut and blow in his nose he will automatically swallow it!

Hahahha, You don't have to give him mouth to snout!! hahaha
5:02 am

haha, Haz, indeed not.
5:02 am
Haz1558

And you'd need to be sure that people understand that you don't blow the pill into his nose.
5:03 am
sgams

Okay, also if he licks his nose its a sure sign its down the hatch
5:03 am
redturtlehead

Ahhh well, I just shove them down Teulus throat. No need for air blowing or anything. He hates it. The other thing i have done was open his capsules up andput them in food...

not if the little brat has hidden it under their tongue ...

ooo alpaca manure!

almost time to start seedlings. Hard to convince myself of that when there's still 4 feet of snow on the vegetable beds.

yes we do use the cold hardy veggies, but I don't like being confined to those.But do you have particular favorite varieties you'd suggest?
5:36 am
herinfernallady

I only agree to killing an animal if you are to eat it not for fun
5:36 am
kje

agree
5:38 am
Eva

Mainly I do tomatoes, huge amounts of basil, squash of all kinds, snow peas, chard, kale, lettuce (found a wonderufl Israeli variety which grows even in summer heat), sometimes potatoes, strawberries, peppers (which last summer never got red), sometimes a few melons, beans.
5:38 am
sgams

Yes, Eva, collards, kale, certain onions (walla walla are great in the cold) cabbage, rutabaga, leeks, there are certian lettuces that are made for the cold, parsnips, I've even found a carrot mmmm, Campestra, that hold well, chards.
5:39 am
Eva

Campestra. Never heard of it before. I'll look it up.
5:39 am
sgams

Well that sounds excellent to me Eva, I figure any amount you can grow yourself and enjoy the wonderful nutrition from is GREAT in my books
5:41 am
Eva

Last year I grew a bunch of baby klari cheese peppers which looked very cute and were advertised as being delicious to pop into one's mouth, but were, in reality, very thick walled with not flavor at all - really meant for pickling.
5:41 am
sgams

Not mention of course, the closer to home you can get your food obviously the better....but thats a whole other dimsion
5:42 am
sgams

Oh, I have some of those to grow this year! Often peppers have a hard time here BUT heres hoping, giving them all the fair chances I can for producing
5:42 am
sgams

Good to know maybe good for adding into salsa
5:43 am
redturtlehead

BACK FOR A MOMENT...
5:44 am
Eva

And last year the deer ate all thre squash blossoms, so the squash had to go through a whole nother cycle and was very late and sparse, not to mention savaging the beets, kale, chard, and even a few peppers. I'm hoping that with the little home made greeenhouses giving us another month or two we may have more luck with the peppers. The summer before last we had a wonderful crop of red peppers, which are my favorite.That reminds me that i really should grow some jalepenos and try some poblanos for making salsa.
5:44 am
redturtlehead

oops shouting it. sorry
5:45 am
redturtlehead

I love red peppers and those yellow tomatos. the small ones... yum yum.
5:46 am
sgams

MMMMMM, sounds good to me, totally forgot about "Winterkeeper" Beets. I have yet to meet a pepper I haven't loved, but yes, red ones are soooooo good!
5:47 am
Eva

thee sungold are my favorite! Had zillions of them last year. Have found that the red plastic really helps with the tomatoes. Also letting them get very leggy as seedlings and then burying all of that stalk horizontally. The plants develop root systems like phone cables!
5:47 am
redturtlehead

Uh oh, finding no more words, but there are aton more in the grid.
5:48 am
kje

yep, me too, 117 left and I'm just staring at letters
5:48 am
sgams

I have found that the key to a successful "winter" or late fall garden is to make sure you are planning and planting it in July, and early August.
5:48 am
redturtlehead

kje, i have 116 left, we are together...
5:48 am
Eva

yes, I always forget to plan for that second crop.
5:49 am
herinfernallady

Ok back
5:49 am

Now thats an interesting idea Eva, have to keep that in mind!
5:49 am

Tomatoes are definitely NOT my forte. Mom can't grow heather or an azalea for the life of her, and I have a heck of a time with tomatos
5:50 am
BabbleRabble

my forte is growing old ... quite accomplished at it
5:51 am
redturtlehead

My neighbours did these upside down tomatos, and had some marginal success with them, the right side up ones did better.
5:51 am

we grow tomatos in pots - works out well
5:51 am

I'm sorry, but why in god's name is "teabag" not in the dictionary?
8:35 am
pabtrek

the sneeze counts
8:35 am
Vicuna

Because it's a stupid dictionary?
8:35 am
SamanthaJoy

You know, I thought it was a rhetorical question, but those are two very good answers
8:35 am
SamanthaJoy

"stupid dictionary" and "sneeze counts". I like it.
8:36 am
pabtrek

LOL
8:36 am
Vicuna

But you can sneeze only once. Pl doesn't count.
8:37 am
SamanthaJoy

. . . As a wise man once said, that's because it's a stupid dictionary
8:37 am

=D
8:38 am

Right now my complaint is the lack of reba5/16. Trust me, when you have little kids, you know what it is to have to reba5 what was clean just a minute ago.

Happy Monday to all, and Happy St. Paddy's to all who celebrate! :-)
8:45 am
SamanthaJoy

I'm wearing orange today
8:45 am
SamanthaJoy

It typically either gets me beaten up or moved to the front of the lines, but damnit, WE'RE IRISH TOO!
8:45 am
Scarlet

Hi, Samantha... you must like to go against the grain!
8:46 am
pabtrek

hi Scarlet
8:46 am

Hi, pab! :-) {hugs}
8:47 am
Scarlet

That's why I love my country, Samantha... freedom of expression, whether someone agrees or not, it's our right!
8:47 am
Haz1558

Don't forget, Samantha, that the orange in the tricolour is intentionally there.
8:48 am
Haz1558

And good morning/afternoon all.
8:48 am
Scarlet

Good day, Haz! Is this date as big a deal in Ireland (other than the true Saint's day) as it is in the United States?
8:48 am
SamanthaJoy

Yes, Haz, and I appreciate it
8:48 am
pabtrek

hi Haz
8:49 am
SamanthaJoy

Well, Scarlet, yes it is, but that's largely because Ireland has a tourist industry that demands it. It didn't *used* to be but now it is.
8:49 am
Scarlet

And, another question, whilst I am picking your brains, do the Protestants celebrate any of it?
8:49 am
Haz1558

Hello Scarlet, pabtrek, Samantha. St Patrick's Day is becoming more celebrated now than it used to be, but I don't think we go to the same lengths as some parts of the world.
8:50 am
Scarlet

Three of our cities have gone green for centuries... the New York City parade has gone on now for 246 years! Chicago and Scranton, PA are huge celebrators also...
8:50 am
Haz1558

Some do, some don't Scarlet. In the past there has been a feeling that St Patrick has been hijacked by one section of the community (I'm talking Northern Ireland here) but people now seem to be more inclined to say - He's for everyone.
8:50 am
SamanthaJoy

Heh. My answer stands. When the tourists are looking, we're celebratin' as hard as the next man
8:51 am
SamanthaJoy

Something about "knowing which side our bread is buttered on"
8:51 am
westford

hi scarl sam and haz
8:52 am
SamanthaJoy

Hi y'all
8:52 am
pabtrek

bbl, gotta go
8:52 am
Haz1558

I have to admit, I do have a laugh at all the shamrocks and leprechauns and things. They're strictly tourist items.
8:52 am
Scarlet

In Asheville, other than a standard school lesson, there is virtually no acknowledgment of the day. LOL, Samantha... very funny. After having lived in Scranton, I would hide on the St. Paddy's Day weekend... too many drunks and way too much rowdiness. HI, Westford!
8:52 am
westford

don't forget Southie in Boston scarl
8:53 am
Scarlet

Of course, west! The Southies are some of the original celebration makers!! Boston is Irish through and through! The Celtics? LOL
8:53 am
westford

they say the name wrong though
8:54 am
SamanthaJoy

We're Americans. We specialize in that.
8:54 am
Scarlet

Haz, I have lived in a city wherein the women dye their hair green, the leprechauns are little deely-bobber head bands with green, sparkly antennae, and everyone indulges in green beer! I know westford... but Irish is Irish! :-)
8:54 am
westford

Americans are from everywhere and I am Irish for today
8:55 am
Haz1558

Mercy!
8:55 am

We have always pronounced it KEL-tics... not sell-tics...

did you hear about the river in Chigago?

Green every year!
8:56 am

Yes, 17 March every year.
8:56 am

im in england, i usually see some guiness hats and green faces
8:57 am
westford

saw a woman on TV making colcannon the other day
8:57 am
Haz1558

I'm guessing there are no leprechauns dancing down your street today?
8:57 am
Atalante

the day snakes fear every year
8:57 am
westford

I might try it looks really good
8:57 am
Scarlet

I do love to see the pipe bands...
8:57 am
silversarah

no and im sitting in a shop in a city
8:57 am
silversarah

no and im sitting in a shop in a city
8:57 am
Scarlet

Good morning/afternoon, Ata. Poor snakes.
8:57 am
silversarah

probably see them later
8:57 am
Haz1558

Not a one left. It's great.
8:57 am
westford

is that true, there are no snakes?
8:58 am
teamrivas

hi all! question.... so Nana is a word - but Tech isn't???
8:58 am
silversarah

tbh i dont celelbrate it because im not irish, i wouldnt expect the irish to celebrate like canada day, or st georges day etc
8:58 am
SamanthaJoy

Actually, this year it was Saint Patrick's Day last Friday, or didn't y'all know that?
8:58 am
westford

they must have moved to Australia did you see Lickety's video?
8:58 am
Scarlet

Asheville is another breed of city altogether... Haz, we have no parades and no particular attachment to any obvious holiday here... We have African culture weekends, Jamaica celebrations, and every culture you can imagine, but not a St. Paddy's Day observance... I am NOT complaining!
8:58 am
silversarah

i have a calender right here i just checked
8:59 am
Haz1558

team - add a sometimes vowel to the te word, but don't forget that you're not supposed to put words in the log...
8:59 am
SamanthaJoy

team, you're right, but add a vowel to "tech" and you're got a word!
8:59 am
teamrivas

ty sam!
8:59 am
Haz1558

And west, it's true,we have no snakes at all. A worm is the biggest we could muster.
8:59 am
SamanthaJoy

sarah, the calendar makers may not have consulted the Vatican, but this year, St. Patrick's day is officially not on March 17. it was last Friday.
9:00 am
westford

sounds like my kind of place lol
9:00 am
Scarlet

That's because a High Mass was not permitted to be observed during Holy Week, so there was a little retro-manipulation going on.
9:01 am
teamrivas

haz - i won't do that again. promise!
9:01 am
silversarah

since when did the vatican get green and drink?
9:01 am
Haz1558

The Vatican probably didn't realise how pigheaded and stubborn Irish people are.
9:01 am
westford

I'll bet they did!
9:01 am
Haz1558

Good to hear, team, I know it was unintentional.
9:02 am
silversarah

im having a house party othis weekend whos coming?
9:02 am
SamanthaJoy

Sarah, it's SAINT Patrick's Day. The Vatican does have a say.
9:02 am
silversarah

alright alright i was only kidding sam
9:02 am
teamrivas

haz - i get a little frustrated when i know words are words and babble doesn
9:02 am
silversarah

chill, get drunk
9:02 am
teamrivas

know they're words
9:02 am
Scarlet

The true Irish people in this country go to Mass, have a family dinner and revisit the agony of the original imigres... especially in Scranton, where coal was king for a few hundred years... those poor miners had the most difficult and deadly jobs of any in NE Pennsylvania.
9:02 am
westford

I've always heard St.Patrick's Day in Ireland is solely a religious holiday
9:03 am
Haz1558

It's not so much babble, as the enable dictionary. You just have to go with the flow.
9:03 am
westford

Oh the praties they grow small over here
9:03 am
SamanthaJoy

Hey now. I will remind you that OCD also stands for Official Catholic Doctrine, and people with OCD can get uptight about either definition. :)
9:03 am
Scarlet

LOL, Samantha!
9:03 am
Haz1558

Yes, but the potato famine was in the 1840's, a long time after St Patrick.
9:04 am
Scarlet

The old folks still speak of it with tears on their cheeks, Haz.
9:04 am
westford

Don't know how it is there but here the Irish have very long memories
9:04 am
SamanthaJoy

I just finished the REs! Glory Hallelujah!
9:04 am
silversarah

im an athiest pure and true , but with mild ocd... shame it dosent affect my tidiness
9:04 am
westford

good job sam
9:05 am
silversarah

im finding todays puzzle a struggle
9:05 am
Haz1558

Oh I know, long memories are handed down from generation to generation.
9:05 am
westford

I love the music I'll say that
9:05 am
SamanthaJoy

sarah, I'm a confirmed atheist myself, with more than mild OCD. And thank you, westford
9:05 am
westford

and just about all my Irish friends can't stand it
9:05 am
Scarlet

Exactly, Haz. The struggles of any people are kept alive in the oral traditions...
9:06 am
silversarah

wicked
9:06 am
Haz1558

It depends who's playing and how long any particular tune goes on for. After three hours of one jig, most people are begging for mercy.
9:06 am
SamanthaJoy

octane. I know it's not a word but I keep typing it.
9:06 am
westford

lol
9:07 am
Scarlet

I can take just a wee bit of it, and then I head for the door. "Oh, Danny Boy" makes me scream for mercy immediately... Same with "Auld Lang Syne"... I've used all my patience and endurance for both of them...
9:08 am
Haz1558

Oh, I can tolerate Danny Boy quite well. It's the diddley-dee-diddley da music that I have to ration.
9:09 am
Scarlet

I heard "Molly Malone" the other day, and ran for cover... The diddley-dee-dee music is what makes this rational person indulge in a primal scream, Haz...

It's actually an American song that Louis Armstrong made famous, but somehow it's been coopted by Irsh groups

interesting, when i worked in real estate development, we had a thing we called re6,18age which was a term of art for us, even the bankers used it, and which must not be a real word because it would be the only 9 letter word of the day. re9. too bad.

Out here in the country, when driving, I sometimes stop on the road to go up to a fence and talk to cows or horses and watch them. There is also a sheep farm.
10:06 am

I love cows, but not really too keen onhorses, so big and unpredictable...
10:06 am

Buffalo, New York goes crazy before and during St Patrick's Day.
10:07 am

I am afraid of horses too, red. I've ridden for years... or rather, I did way back when. I prefer cows.

11:49 am

I think when Ata's evil work is finished, each of her victims should be permitted to do her in return.
11:49 am
Atalante

hey don't blame me! Blame Haz - I mean fm. It was her idea! I just made it reality :P
11:50 am
Haz1558

I rather think you're right, Ata. It was FM's idea, wasn't it?
11:50 am
Jacula

*Keeps quiet about the fact that it was Jac talking about BC the began it all.*
11:50 am
Atalante

of course
11:51 am
Jacula

*Looks around. 'Phew! Think I got away with it.'*
11:51 am
Haz1558

Yes, careless talk costs lives.
11:51 am

Well done, flosey.

Yay for flosey!
11:54 am
Atalante

hopefully I should get a chance to do you tomorrow ... *grin*
11:54 am

No, Haz, merely reflecting the will of the people.
11:54 am

May I be cartlanded Jac? I'd love to send it to my kids

11:54 am

sorry, no I mean Ata
11:54 am
Vicuna

Just now. You and jac and Ata were all in clear agreement that everything was FM's fault, as usual.
11:55 am
flosey

ok, thanks
11:55 am
Jacula

flosey - Ata's doing the 'official' makeovers. I just did a one-off Warhol version on Haz. e-mail a good clear photo to Ata.
11:55 am
Haz1558

Can we blame FM for Michael Flatley?
11:55 am
Atalante

of course!!
11:55 am
Vicuna

Indubitably.
11:55 am
Jacula

Definitely!
11:56 am
Haz1558

What a burden that woman carries.
11:56 am
Haz1558

He's not even Irish.
11:56 am
Vicuna

She's strong.
11:56 am
Atalante

thats just a disgrace
11:56 am
Vicuna

Neither is FM< so it all hangs together.
11:57 am
Haz1558

But was she born in the States like him?
11:57 am
Atalante

she has friends there ...
11:57 am
Haz1558

Just think. All this time the States has been blaming Ireland for Michael Flatley and he's one of them.
11:57 am
Vicuna

Haz, Haz, Haz, either one is Irish or one is not Irish.
11:58 am
Jacula

It must be her fault then... I mean... she has friends th5/12.
11:58 am
Haz1558

But he wasn't born in Ireland - so why the silly accent?
11:58 am
Vicuna

FM's general culpability notwithstanding, I think most of the world is in happy agreement that everything can be blamed on the USA.
11:58 am
Atalante

Jamie Oliver wasn't born in the East End ... so why the equally silly accent?
11:59 am
Jacula

Haz - I wondered that about Ned Kelly in both versions of the film. He actually said he'd never been to Ireland.
11:59 am
Vicuna

Irish accents are fun. If I had a good excuse I'd fake one, too.
12:00 pm
Haz1558

Maybe people (like Flatley) just use the accent for convenience?
12:00 pm
Vicuna

Convenience? You mean, the better to solicit pots of gold?
12:01 pm
Jacula

An accent of convenience? That's an intriguing concept.
12:01 pm
caitlyn

Afternoon all (or should I say in my best Irish accent,top of the morning to you)
12:01 pm
Atalante

much more likely
12:01 pm
Haz1558

Yes - to convince people that you're from the old country.
12:01 pm
Atalante

begorrah begorrah!
12:01 pm
Haz1558

(I've never heard an Irishman saying 'top of the morning'!
12:02 pm
Atalante

whats that got to do with the price of fish, haz?
12:02 pm
caitlyn

My friends from Ireland do say that Haz
12:02 pm
Atalante

its obviously an Irish saying!
12:02 pm
Haz1558

I mustn't be rubbing shoulders with the right people!
12:02 pm
Atalante

bet Flatley says it
12:02 pm
Jacula

I could name 3 entertainers who fake Brummie accents. It's not that they don't come from Birmingham but they don't come from the areas that speak like 'Marlene' or 'Barry' from Auf Weidersehen Pet'.
12:03 pm
Haz1558

Ah, to be sure, he does!
12:03 pm
Deeha

Wouldnt they say 'its yourself?'!
12:03 pm
Haz1558

I would say 'it's yourself' if I met someone I hadn't seen for a while.
12:04 pm
caitlyn

Surely people would know its themselves !!LOL
12:04 pm
Haz1558

Who are the fake Brummies? And are they rejects from Crossroads (the Noele Gordon original)?
12:04 pm
Jacula

Do people really add, 'so you do/so he does' to the end of every other sentence like Corrie's Jim MacDonald does? My guess is that they don't.
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Not if they had escaped from the home for the bewildered, caitlyn
12:05 pm
Vicuna

They did in Belfast, Jacs!
12:05 pm

Hi, all. We have the resident computer whizzes here now... so, help, please. My mail window is half-sized and I cannot get it to conform to full screen resolution. I have double-clicked on the blue border atop the page... with the Yahoo Mail identity. I have tried to click on the icon to re-size the box, but it is faded and will not take any command. What am I doning wrong, and what can I do to make the little critter behave itself? And, no gremlins or little people are loose on my desktop... I think!
12:05 pm
Jacula

Caitlyn - No stranger than saying, 'You've had your hair cut!' to someone. Like they'd been to the hair salon in their sleep??
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Jacula - some people do (in Belfast, yes!) and it's infuriating.
12:05 pm
Deeha

I think they do and they also say 'he turned round to me and said...' 'so I turned round to 'im and said........' Must be an awful lot of dizzy people about
12:06 pm
Deeha

Or Jac when you come in soaked they say 'is it raining?'
12:06 pm
Atalante

click on the bottom right hand of the window, there should be some /// marks. and drag it outwards
12:06 pm
Haz1558

My father used to describe conversations with 'Says I...... says he' It doesn't seem to be used as much anymore.
12:06 pm
caitlyn

Thats true Jac and I like the saying are you reading that newspaper when its on the chair next to them
12:07 pm
Scarlet

Okay, Ata. Thank you.
12:07 pm
Atalante

Haz1558

Fingers crossed for Scarlet.
12:08 pm

I see your mind works like mine, Deeha.:)
12:08 pm
Haz1558

Of course, classic Irishism, upon viewing a corpse 'Doesn't he look very like himself?'
12:08 pm
Atalante

what do real Irish people think of 'Father Ted'?
12:08 pm
caitlyn

LOL Haz
12:08 pm
Jacula

Haz - Dr. Carl Chinn, Malcolm Stent and Jasper Carrott.
12:09 pm
Haz1558

Or, 'she'd have been 90 this week if she'd lived another two years'
12:09 pm
Jacula

Haz - LOL!
12:09 pm
Haz1558

Father Ted is quite popular, I think, although I can't stand that awful old priest!
12:09 pm
caitlyn

They say that here too Haz
12:10 pm
Jacula

The old priest makes my skin crawl but I did find it very funny when his head was set alight once.
12:10 pm
Haz1558

Another reported saying upon viewing a corpse 'You can see that holiday did her the world of good'
12:10 pm

Someday I must tell you about the riotous evening I spent with the local undertaker's wife.
12:11 pm
Atalante

what better time than now?
12:11 pm
Haz1558

However, since it's time for me to get cooking, it won't be now! I'd better get to the kitchen. Bye for now!
12:11 pm
Atalante

ohhh :( byeee!
12:11 pm
Jacula

Indeed you must, Haz. I shall look forward to that and be sure to gird my loins appropriately beforehand.
12:12 pm

Thank you, Ata. **here's the cup of smug I borrowed, and I'm returning it doubled, for you** You're a computer wonder!
