Capturing their wonder at things Westerners take for granted, this documentary, an award winner at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, paints an intimate portrait of strangers in a strange land.

2:06 am
VolleymomDee

pretty good; how about you lady
2:06 am
herinfernallady

good just got back from the library
2:07 am
VolleymomDee

I did that last Friday... found so many fun books... Evanovich, Nancy Fairbanks, Joanne Fluke... fluffy mysteries
2:09 am
herinfernallady

our local library is fairly poor. I am getting a book ordered in from another library
2:10 am
VolleymomDee

the one I go too is puny too, but they are all so very nice... will get books from other places, just like yours.... I love going to the library LOL... feel like a kid....
2:10 am
herinfernallady

I like librabies and im not used to this tiny little library that we have
2:12 am
herinfernallady

I am used to 'get lost for hours' library's
2:13 am
herinfernallady

One of my earliest memories is sitting in the egg shaped window at the library when i was a kid
2:13 am
VolleymomDee

I totally understand
2:14 am
herinfernallady

So how are you Volley?
2:14 am
jillibus

our small library has over 40,000 books plus DVDs, tapes. etc and interlibrary loans. I work there -- it's run by 2 part-time pros and 150 volunteers
2:15 am
herinfernallady

Thats Small? Not in my world sigh that sounds lovely
2:15 am
herinfernallady

?
2:16 am
VolleymomDee

hanging in there lady... our weather has been nuts, so my RA has been painful... but have been reading alot, babbling, and doing a little needlework... so life is good
2:16 am
jillibus

people like it. There are magazines too, free computers, copier, and a great kids' section downstairs
2:17 am
herinfernallady

Needle work is good for bad hands
2:18 am
herinfernallady

Jill that sounds lovely our library has free 'local' library connections
2:18 am
VolleymomDee

helps keep my fingers limber, but sometimes it kills my thumbs, must be how I hold the needle... not really sure. I'm not great, but I make simple things like bread covers, table runners...
2:18 am
VolleymomDee

sounds like a fun place to work jili
2:18 am
herinfernallady

I am currently hunting down a full list of Jodi Picoult books
2:19 am
jillibus

it's great, dee
2:19 am
herinfernallady

Jill that sounds like a fun volunteer job.
2:20 am
VolleymomDee

oh lady.. I just finished her book, "My Sister's Keeper"... wow what a twist at the end of that one
2:20 am
VolleymomDee

I had never read any of her books before
2:21 am
herinfernallady

I want to start reading the very first book. Ill just borrow them. I have already made a bad book choice this year
2:22 am
VolleymomDee

I have a cousin in NC who has her degree in library science. She is librarian at a grade school and also teaches 4th - 6th graders how to use the net for research...
2:22 am
VolleymomDee

what was her first one lady?
2:23 am
VolleymomDee

and of course closely watches that they don't end up places they shouldn't...
2:24 am
herinfernallady

Um looking now
2:24 am

SOngs of the humback whale
2:24 am

2:27 am
herinfernallady

Volley i made a really horrid book choice today so now im going to read Harry Potter
2:27 am
jillibus

thanks herin and dee xoxoxo *poof*
2:28 am
herinfernallady

Question: Would it be really mean of me to email an writer and tell her what i think of her book (its not good)
2:29 am
VolleymomDee

what book was horrid? I have never read the Harry Potter books... I've seen a few of the movies; I am just not a fan of wizadry, so didn't want to spend so much time on such large books. Have you read any Sue Crafton books?
2:29 am
VolleymomDee

I have done that before; I just make sure I criticize the work, rather than attacking the author.
2:30 am
VolleymomDee

pa 8/65
2:30 am
herinfernallady

The Book was Keri Arthur's Full moon rising. Its just sloppy
2:30 am
herinfernallady

No i haven't read Sue Crafton.
2:31 am
VolleymomDee

she is nicknamed the alphabet author... mysteries... starting with letters ... I think she is up to "S"
2:32 am
VolleymomDee

http://www.suegrafton.com/
2:32 am
herinfernallady

One of my main gripes is the sloppiness of the writing for instance a bunch of vampires attack this club (random factoid not going anywhere in story) and she mentions that two of the women were raped. My point with this is there is no need to include that as there is no point in it. Also her technology is sloppy.
2:33 am
VolleymomDee

then, you should share those observations ...
2:34 am
VolleymomDee

have you seen the movie August Rush yet?
2:34 am
herinfernallady

I am thinking so. I think its just that i am a big nerd and a big role playing nerd. No to that movie.
2:35 am
VolleymomDee

great flic... worth seeing just for the music in it...
2:36 am
herinfernallady

http://www.apple.com/trailers/ i like to look here for future movies
2:36 am
VolleymomDee

I'll check that out; I have only used netflix.com and imdb.com
2:37 am
VolleymomDee

you always have great websites to investigate
2:38 am
herinfernallady

I like to trawl about the net you never know what youll find
2:39 am
VolleymomDee

I love ask.com for that very reason
2:40 am
VolleymomDee

li 6/24... have never heard that word before...
2:40 am
VolleymomDee

here's the meaning... odd word . 1. a slightly rough or ripply surface on a body of water.
2. spray from small waves.
2:41 am
herinfernallady

oh dear. I just found a very odd movie Zombie Strippers
2:41 am
VolleymomDee

yuk
2:42 am
VolleymomDee

Robin Williams is in August Rush... plays a really strange part... wish I had the cd for just the music...
2:43 am
herinfernallady

i think i just cracked up laughing at its badness of it. OH i have heard of that movie
2:43 am
VolleymomDee

lol
2:44 am
herinfernallady

my nets just died
2:45 am
VolleymomDee

how can you still be here?
2:50 am
herinfernallady

I am here. I just rebooted
2:51 am
herinfernallady

I just found that you can get the August Rush cd at Amazon.com
2:51 am

The dipping sauce is best with Chinkiang vinegar, but what isn't? That's at most Asian groceries.

koshary is the "staple food" of egypt... meaning..its is equivalent to mac and cheese in North america...or... eggs and chips in england

Of course.... I cook from several regions. I'll look up Mumbai recipes.
6:26 am

Great, Carlee! What IS it, though?
6:26 am
herinfernallady

Its a great way to make sure your rice isn't soggy and your bread is covered in goo
6:26 am
carleekat

its a mixture of long grain rice..over cooked macaronis ( they like pasta cooked to soft there ) and lentils..with diced tomatoes..and fried onions...then baked

I like snort the milk as a concept
6:40 am
frantique

people make the mistake of grabbing a glass of water when somehting is hot. that just spreads the heat.. besides, most hot things are oil based.. so water doesnt wash it away.. you have to eat bread or like carlee said.. rice
6:40 am
herinfernallady

bread
6:40 am
MonkeyGames

Milk is one of the things that does pick up the chili. But she got it up her nose.
6:40 am

I still say snort milk
6:41 am

Back for a min and off topic. I found a TV. It works fine. Had a sign on it saying "free, take it away". SO here it is. But the universal remote I bought needs to be programmed. I have the code lists. However, the TV says it is an RM 2000, which the guide and online sources say is a sattelite dish. Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? I just need the code to tune the remote to the machine.

Montreal, have now found TV in Dutch listings only but no sign of code key. Is there a way to get it to respond, is there a "universal" code, anything?

how do they know... could be your dad's old tv for all you know...or an old roomate...
7:24 am

don't believe MG that there is a "universal" code - i remember going through hundreds of codes and eventually returning the remote to the store to get a more expensive one that worked...

11:30 am
G.Clooney

She's a nice girl. Just a bit stalker-ish, her and some lady from New York state as well.
11:30 am

Not from Ireland though I hope George
11:30 am
Haz1558

Well, we all know the one from New York state. She drives about with skis and canoes on top of the car.
11:31 am
MLFAN17

i love renee zellweger but i still dont know what she was thinking when she married that country singer and then later they were divorced
11:32 am
Haz1558

But George, you're so good at coping with all those delusional women.
11:32 am
G.Clooney

There you go, wax is for more than just skis. It's a burden to be sure, but I have broad shoulders.
11:33 am
Uniquity

Oh and those shoulders are soooo dreamy!
11:33 am

HI Uni LOL!

Broad shoulders and a big heart. I'm not surprised the others want you as well.

Oh yeah, I used to be lurking. I can't convince myself to work on this grid! Have been reading webcomics instead.

11:47 am

Great idea
11:47 am
montreal13

1st column of rankings flosey - "Cream of the crop"
11:48 am
flosey

ah, I'm so far down in that one, never thought to keep track of numbers there, must try
11:49 am
flosey

almost always complete babble, but will be in Toronto for 3 weeks next month - may miss a few
11:49 am
montreal13

well, for the other 2 columns, Village elders is straight forward - and Who's hot is almost impossible to maintain at 1030 unless you do EVERY grid...
11:50 am
Scarlet

{{Lucien}} I am laughing so hard now... we have the same book cover!
11:50 am
flosey

have been on top of that one but it fluctuates
11:50 am
caitlyn

Im guilty of that at the moment monty!!
11:50 am
flosey

is the top one the first to finish the grid of that day?
11:50 am
montreal13

(((SCARLET))) - amazing isn't it ??
11:51 am
Scarlet

Yes!!
11:51 am
Scarlet

But not surprising!
11:51 am
Scarlet

Flosey, are you going to visit your sons again?
11:51 am
montreal13

lol caitlyn !! - no flosey - it's closer to how you perform (percentage wise) over time...
11:52 am
flosey

interesting
11:52 am
flosey

will start watching it closer
11:53 am

11:54 am

that much effect scarlet ?
11:55 am

Yes, Luc... some things just stormed into my heart and soul, and should be, by all accounts, paying me rent! :-)
11:56 am
montreal13

ahhh - you write I see in your profile... seriously or more keeping a journal like ?
11:56 am
Scarlet

I was a newspaper editor and features, political and sports' writer for many, many moons, Luc!
11:57 am
caitlyn

Scarlet you must ahve had a very interesting career
11:57 am
montreal13

well, i'll be darned !! - never knew that ! - i understand the culture now...:-)
11:57 am
Scarlet

I did, Cait... and now, it is time to continue with the imperative...
11:58 am
Scarlet

What culture, Lucien? I am a little lost now :9
11:58 am
Scarlet

Cait, my passions are politics and sports... so, they are not so different after all...
11:59 am
montreal13

well you don't exactly appear to be a wallpaper dear one !

Scarlet

LOL... Luc... you always tickle me no end!!

Both the things Im not very good at Scarlet LOL
12:00 pm

not very strong in sports either Cait...
12:00 pm

The practice of politics in the United States is a lie wrapped in hypocrisy inside a half-truth.
12:00 pm

Have you all been reading about that dreadful man in Austria?
12:01 pm
montreal13

Sport trivia question: Who was the 1st man to run the mi** in less than 4 minutes ? (no cheating allowed)
12:01 pm
Scarlet

Cait... I would have, in the long past, have truly enjoyed doing feature stories on so many Babblers... everyone, no matter whom, has a story and I have been humbled, brought to tears, learned and forged on through disasters... so, I learn from every person here. Hello, BabbleRabble-rouser!

Caitlyn, what I want to know is how his wife did not know all this was going on. Give me a break!
12:02 pm
flosey

in that case Scarlet, allow me {{{scarlet}}}
12:02 pm
caitlyn

Bab are you talking about Dr Roger Bannister Bab?
12:03 pm
caitlyn

It doesnt make sense at all Bea
12:03 pm
Haz1558

Which is harder to believe. That the woman didn't know what was going on, or that she did know and went along with it?
12:03 pm
LoriP

Buncha' hug copycats! ***never can be enough hugs.... :-)***
12:03 pm
montreal13

it was my sports trivia question Cait...
12:03 pm

Awwww... thank you so much, flosey. {{Hugs to Lori and flosey, too}} Hello, Haz! I have missed you all so much!
12:03 pm
Haz1558

Hello Scarlet!
12:04 pm

He used to live around the corner from me in London monty
12:04 pm
montreal13

well hazel, i would find it UNBELIEVABLE that she did not know !!!!!!
12:04 pm
BzznBea

Haz, it's all hard to believe.
12:04 pm
montreal13

did you meet him Cait ?
12:04 pm
Haz1558

Oh, I absolutely agree. Whether she knew or not, the whole situation is ghastly.
12:05 pm
BzznBea

Who lived around the corner form you Cait?
12:05 pm
BabbleRabble

1954: Bannister breaks four-minute mile. Roger Bannister, a 25-year-old British medical student, has become the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes.
12:05 pm
Scarlet

Please clue in the floundering American on this story?
12:05 pm
caitlyn

That poor girl must have had a life of sheer hell
12:05 pm
LoriP

Are y'all talking about the freak that locked up his daughter? ***too lazy to scrolll back***
12:05 pm
caitlyn

Bea Roger Bannister
12:05 pm
BzznBea

Whoa!
12:05 pm
BzznBea

Creepy.
12:05 pm
caitlyn

Yes Lori
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Scarlet, Austrian police have discovered that a 74 year old man has imprisoned his daughter for 24 years. She bore him seven children.
12:06 pm
Scarlet

ACK!
12:06 pm
LoriP

No way that family was THAT ignorant to what was happening. They allowed themselves the be ininvolved.
12:06 pm
montreal13

imprisonment started when she was 18...
12:06 pm
Haz1558

She and three of the children were kept in an underground basement of their home. Three of the children were raised by him and his wife. They adopted them - they were 'left' on their doorstep, supposedly with a note from the daughter saying she couldn't cope.
12:06 pm
Scarlet

That is disgusting, horrible and mind-blowing.
12:07 pm
flosey

whew, it sure is scarlet
12:07 pm
bichon

What I found really disgusting that the penalty in Austria for this is 15 years imprisonment!
12:07 pm
LoriP

Some of those chidlren never saw the light of day for their entire lives.
12:07 pm
Haz1558

It truly is. One 18 year old boy emerged along with a five year old. They had never seen daylight.
12:07 pm
caitlyn

They think the younger children ,who have never seen daylight may recover
12:07 pm
Scarlet

The daughter and those children will never know normalcy.
12:08 pm
montreal13

horrifying story... am sure it happened in the past but now the whole world knows...including youths...not very good images to put in their minds...
12:08 pm
flosey

don't know that I could have left this to the court to decide punishment!
12:08 pm
Scarlet

bichon... that is equally disgusting.
12:08 pm
bichon

I can't imagine such a lenient punishment elsewhere.
12:08 pm
Haz1558

I just can't fathom how that man could continue in such wickedness for so long.
12:08 pm
Scarlet

How were they dis- or UN- covered, Haz?
12:08 pm
LoriP

No, they won't Scarlet. I'd prob'ally start in International Bable incident, but I can never be convinced, that he pulled that off, without arousing the wif/Mother's suspicions. Never. She had to be suspicious of somthing
12:09 pm
Scarlet

There has to be a special place in Hell for those who commit such deeds.
12:09 pm
Haz1558

Scarlet, one of the children kept underground became seriously ill and had to be taken to hospital.
12:09 pm
Scarlet

Stockholm Syndrome, perhaps?
12:09 pm
LoriP

One of the older ones got sick, and needed medical care
12:09 pm
caitlyn

I agree Scarlet
12:09 pm
bichon

who delivered the babies, him?
12:09 pm
montreal13

almost hoping there is a hell at all...for such persons
12:10 pm
caitlyn

Yes
12:10 pm
flosey

you'd think hospital staff might have obtained information from that child
12:10 pm
Scarlet

Oh, Haz... I am thoroughly flummoxed by this story.
12:10 pm
Haz1558

The police must have become involved and the father led them to the basement. He had it locked with access only by password.
12:10 pm
Haz1558

The father delivered the babies when they arrived.
12:10 pm
Haz1558

One of a set of twins died at birth. He incinerated the body in the house boiler.
12:10 pm
caitlyn

One of the babies was a twin that died so he threw it into a furnace
12:11 pm
montreal13

he was a newspaper editor wasn't he ??
12:11 pm
LoriP

He can rot, and he makes me pine for an afterlife, which he can rot in again and again.....
12:11 pm
Haz1558

Am I right in supposing that this isn't being covered much in US news?
12:11 pm
bichon

they said that the dead twin died of neglect. I wonder what the father provided for these children and how did he get all these things in the house without the wife knowing?
12:11 pm
kje

It's been in the papers Haz
12:11 pm
LoriP

It's making press here Haz.
12:11 pm
Scarlet

I have been out of the loop for other than political and weather stories, Haz.
12:11 pm
bichon

No, it's big news here
12:12 pm
montreal13

it was on 1st page CNN web site yesterday...
12:12 pm
kje

yep, that's where I 1st saw it monte
12:12 pm
Haz1558

Okay, I was just wondering how much attention it had received.
12:12 pm
montreal13

unfortunately, worldwide attention hazel...
12:12 pm
caitlyn

I think the whole world feels sick about this story
12:13 pm
bichon

A lot, but don't forget, there's the Polygymous Sect news here too
12:13 pm
Scarlet

I have had virtually no computer time lately, so these horror stories have eluded me... this one will be a Hollywood production for certain... either the Coen brothers or Quentin Tarantino...
12:13 pm
Haz1558

Newspapers here are wondering - why Austria - this is the third such long-term imprisonment story to emerge in the past couple of years.
12:13 pm
bichon

It will be on "Law and Order" for sure
12:13 pm
montreal13

i see George as the le**...lol
12:13 pm
LoriP

Yes, the Texas polygamous sect is getting minute by minute coverage here, so otehr stories are being overshadowed.
12:14 pm
Scarlet

There is another gut-punch, Lori... and it goes on m ore than any of us realizes.
12:14 pm
montreal13

in Texas lori ? haven't heard that one...
12:14 pm
Haz1558

Do others feel slightly sick/guilty at the thought of this being served up as entertainment in the future?
12:14 pm
caitlyn

I saw that last week Lori but no news lately on it
12:14 pm
kje

wow, I'm surpised the txas story is getting that kind of coverage in NS lori
12:14 pm
flosey

absolutely Haz
12:14 pm
Scarlet

Of course, Haz... but it is as inevitable as the sunrise.
12:14 pm
caitlyn

Very much so Haz
12:14 pm
montreal13

of course hazel...but if there's a buck to be made..."sigh"
12:15 pm
bichon

It sell papers, so when there's a profit motive, it will be news
12:15 pm
Haz1558

I have to admit that when I watched the coverage of 9/11 - people saying 'It's just like a film' - I cringed - we have enjoyed violence as entertainment.
12:15 pm
LoriP

Here monty http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2008/04/
28/texas-polygamyranch.html
12:16 pm
Scarlet

I, too, heard that, Haz, and I WAS ill from it...
12:16 pm
LoriP

It's quite sickening Haz, but won't be the first time, nor the last that profit is made in Hollywood, from others real life suffering.
12:16 pm
Scarlet

Phone... be right back.
12:16 pm
montreal13

tx lori, will take a peek...
12:17 pm
montreal13

14 year old girls ??!! hard to fathom...
12:17 pm
Haz1558

I know - it just makes me sad. I didn't go to see the film based on the Flight where the passengers took over the plane.
12:18 pm
LoriP

There is no way they'll ever be able to enjoy a sense of normalcy, they'll always be seen as a side show, and I hate to be crass, but would there not be health issues on top of th pain, via the too close genetic relationship?
12:18 pm
LoriP

Unfortuantely, people are very desensitized. :(
12:18 pm
caitlyn

There must be a lot of genetic issues as you say Lori
12:19 pm
Haz1558

You would think so, Lori. It's a ghastly situation that isn't going to be cured just because it has been uncovered.
12:19 pm
montreal13

wouldn't be surprised lori... 463 children and 50 odd teenage girls - don't know how many men were involved though...
12:19 pm
Uniquity

What's even more sad is that any problems that have arisen genetically will be continued indefinitely if they have children.
12:19 pm
lexleeanne

Do ya'll think that this it is clear this is the FLDS (fundamentalist) not the regular LDS church - being a (regular) Mormon I wonder how it is affecting how people are making the association or if
12:20 pm
caitlyn

Didnt it get uncovered by someone escaping?
12:20 pm
montreal13

sad but true Uni...
12:20 pm
kje

Lex - I think it's been made pretty clear thta this is a fringe group
12:20 pm
bichon

No, it was an 911 call that was never really justified. They never found the girl who purportedly made it
12:21 pm
LoriP

caitlyn, the raid happened as a result of a call from a supposed 16 year old cult member that they can't find, so it may place the legal ground for the warrant in jeopardy, or not.
12:21 pm
pabtrek

fa5 please
12:21 pm
kje

"never jusitified"? hmmm - maybe not owned up to, but justified considering there has been stauatory rape
12:21 pm
montreal13

sorry, must go BBL - happy babbling all - "POOF"
12:22 pm
caitlyn

Bye monty take care
12:22 pm
lexleeanne

I had to explain to my classes that (because they asked) if they were doing this in our regular church - they would be excommunicated
12:22 pm
bichon

I think people understand that there's always sect offshoots that take astrange directions. I'm Jewish, but I hope people don't think of all Jews being like the fanatic Hassidim
12:22 pm
LoriP

lex, honestly, most people aren't going to differentiate, given that polygamy was only abandoned what, a little over a century ago by the LDS?
12:22 pm
lexleeanne

It is so sad that so many of those people are so lost and confused about normalcy - and genetics definately can play a part of the issue
12:23 pm
LoriP

fa + jazz grat L*** Horne
12:23 pm
bichon

I meant justified, as in finding the actual person making the call
12:23 pm
kje

disagree lori - mormon faith has become pretty common in the states - I don't think most people believe they still practice polygamy
12:23 pm
lexleeanne

abandoned in 1865 - I think
12:23 pm
pabtrek

thanks Lori
12:23 pm
bichon

And Ken Jennings earned a lot of good press for Mormons.
12:24 pm
caitlyn

There always will be sects that go under the name of religon but only are doing it for self gratification
12:24 pm
lexleeanne

My daughter was in a class last year where the spelling word was polygamy - and the teacher used this sentence for the example - "it is only legal to practice polygamy in Utah>
12:25 pm
Uniquity

Well, I don't live in the States and don't know any Mormons but was certainly under the impression polygamy was not only practised but promoted. I seem to recall a program on TLC with a Mormon gentleman with several wives a little while ago...doesn't mean it's true though, but the perception is certainly there.
12:25 pm
kje

Lots of horrible thing shave been done in the name of many different religious groups - hopefully people understand the difference between true believers in different paths vs extremists using it to their own benefit
12:25 pm
LoriP

kje, only my opinion. One need only look at a number of recent news, world wide events, that paints an entire group with a brush, based on the actions of a tiny percentage.
12:25 pm
caitlyn

911!!
12:26 pm
bichon

I don't know where somee teachers come up with these things. When my son was in grade school the kids had to write a story about Easter and my son wrote about Easter Island. The teacher said she'd never heard of Easter Island and that he was making it up!
12:26 pm
lexleeanne

Oh man - bichon
12:26 pm
kje

LOL bichon - No Way!!!
12:26 pm
LoriP

Not gonna' mention specific events,. because there'll be a fight. i'm just saying it's the nature of the beast.
12:26 pm
caitlyn

I have heard it all now bichon
12:27 pm
kje

yes, lori, there are extremists on all sides - those behaving in extreme fashions, and those interpretting all people different from themselves in extreme ways
12:27 pm

Hello, BR-r.
3:01 pm
kje

I don't think that is the sentiment in these here parts BR
3:03 pm
BabbleRabble

doesn't everyone think upon finding a word, "that wasn't so hard"?
3:03 pm
stidmama

yes, and then I spend twenty minutes on a fish, BR...
3:03 pm
Scarlet

No, BR-r... I think, "I am getting slower as I age rapidly, and this is accelerating the process."
3:04 pm
BabbleRabble

I must say, attitude adjustment is in order. This is fun. Make it so.
3:05 pm
Scarlet

It is. I am still aging rapidly.

Aging as a biological process does not prevent choices as a thought process.
3:08 pm

So right, as usual, BR-r. Choices saved my life.

And, in having lived, having learned to love and forgive.
3:13 pm
BabbleRabble

Yeah for you, Scarlet
3:13 pm
Scarlet

And to you, BR-r.
3:16 pm
BabbleRabble

As an editor, Scarlet, did your paper have a code of journalism ethics that included opinion articles by the editorial board?
3:18 pm
Scarlet

Yes, BR-r. We all had to study not only ethics, but journalistic law. The primary opinion-giver was the publisher, but many times, he allowed guest editorials. Our board, since it was a privately-owned paper, consisted of the entire editorial staff... read that, reporting staff.
3:19 pm
Scarlet

I learned to not be bullied by politicians and not allow being pushed into a corner for the "greater good of the community"... which translates as the "special interest" of the said bully.
3:21 pm
kje

is there something specific that you were thinking of BR?
3:22 pm
BabbleRabble

That is wonderful, Scarlet. I have been telling the local paper at best its editors are at best more puppy dogs than watch dogs and too often lap dogs. I also found them to be akin to political operatives acting as boosters or champions of their own agenda. Papers has so much influence in choosing what is fit to print.
3:23 pm
BabbleRabble

One editor now calls me his buddy, although I doubt I will ever get a Christmas card.
3:23 pm
kje

the buddy he most wants to shoot?
3:24 pm
BabbleRabble

Probably
3:24 pm
Scarlet

We find that condition wherever we travel, BR-r... one, in order to maintain one's integrity, must take a stand and offer sometimes unpalatable opinions to kick-start some awareness and/or action on the part of the readers, the politicians, the public at large, and maybe the periodical's staff who play it entirely too comfortably... one must have some guts to say: "The emperor has no clothes!"

Please don't stop that, BR-r... one voice in the wilderness is better than the alliance of silence or shoulder-shrugging that has become the median behavior. One voice can and often does make a differnce... you just can't allow the slanted opinions of those "in charge" to call the shots.
3:27 pm
kje

in keeping scarlet's theme music going...now starting to softly play the battle hymn of th republic
3:28 pm
Scarlet

I love the Russian Naval Hymn...
3:29 pm

not sure I know that one *flipping through sheet music*
3:29 pm
Scarlet

Just watch Hunt for Red October and it will give you gooseflesh, kje~

Three more taunt me, kje!
3:31 pm
BabbleRabble

Does the Russian Naval Hymn have lyrics too?
3:31 pm
kje

will ggole
3:32 pm
Scarlet

It must, BR-r... I have only heard the choral underpinnings of sound relating to the music... so beautiful. I bet I will end up Googling that after I finish!
3:32 pm
kje

apparently yes, but in russian - LOL
3:32 pm
BabbleRabble

I found an MP3
3:33 pm
BabbleRabble

says the hymn was written for the movie
3:33 pm

my typing in english is bad - but my typing in russian would be worse
3:33 pm
kje

that's what I saw also BR
3:33 pm
Scarlet

It was so beautiful... I have watched that movie, probably, a dozen times and every time I hear that music, I get chills.
3:35 pm
Scarlet

LOL, kje...
3:35 pm
BabbleRabble

Unbreakable union of free republics,
Great Russia has joined forever!
Long live the created by the will of peoples
United and mighty Soviet Union

CHORUS:
To Glory, our free Fatherland
The stronghold of the friendship of peoples
Party of Lenin is the power of the people
It leads us to the triumph of Communism

2.

Through storms the sun of freedom shone to us
And the great Lenin lighted us the way
He raised peoples to the right cause
He inspired us for labour and for acts of heroism

CHORUS

3.

In the victory of the immortal ideas of Communism
We see the future of our country,
And to the Red banner of our glorious Fatherland
We shall always be selflessly loyal

CHORUS

3:35 pm
BabbleRabble

Not exactly memorable.
3:36 pm
Scarlet

While I have major disagreements with the political philosophy, I still love the music... the lyrics are truly outdated.
3:36 pm

3:36 pm

i just started mine on a brand called "life's abundance" which i read is next best for cats if you aren't doing raw - has more protein and fewer carbs, and higher quality ingredients. no decaying meat, for instance...
7:47 pm

Herin - your cat needs to see a vet first to be sure of the cause. Then you can add 250mg of vitamin c per day to canned cat food. Himalayan Salt is another thing you can use.

Cystitis can also be caused by stress. Stress may be a result of a change in environment e.g. moving house, a new addition to the home e.g. anything from furniture to a new pet, visitors, a change in diet or even the weather.

Cat's are very fussy about their litter tray and also doin't like sharing it. Ideally, they should have one each which is cleared of solid matter daily (or more) and thoroughly changed and washed out every 3-4 days.

Herbal remedies include Dandelion, Parsley, Bearberry and Watercress (taken as infusions).

To prepare an infusion:

Add 1tsp of the dried herb, to one cup of boiling water. Leave to stand 20 minutes then strain. Give 2 tsps twice daily with food for a week (when the cat has an acute infection). Make a new infusion every 2 days.

Chinese Medicine: 1 tsp of hops diced finely and added daily to the cat’s food.

Homeopathy: Cantharis (acute dosage) for acute painful cystitis. Causticum, Equistetum and Thlaspi Bursa (chronic dosage) for persistent cystitis.

Most cats eventually die from re5/10 failure, brought about by the fake diet we give them of tinned and dried foods. Dried are the worst culprits for this.

If your litter tray (or any pet place, or even your own loo) gets stained with hard pee crystalline deposit, you can use citric acid (or boiled lemons) to remove it.
