often think about the things we've lost in modern life, yes we have many things better, but not all [mom only went to about equiv of 5th grade & went shoeless to school, and though houses/barns had lights, still outhouse in the '70s at granny's]
2:14 am
sandyloo

My favourite improvement is dishwashers and washing machines
2:14 am
sprite

I agree. Many things are really better, and much easier now, but other things have gone lost. Life is fast nowadays, and it isn't easy to create some peace and quiet in family life. We try, though.
2:14 am
sandyloo

that's not correct english i realise
2:14 am

but you still make yourself very clear, sandy :) And I agree.
2:15 am

washing machines even more important than dishwashing.

We have a lovely dam at the back of our property and we often have luncheons down there with friends and family and I think it is such a serene place
2:16 am

I still read with my kids every morning, we read english books now, and we will sit on the couch, with me in the middle. It is fun, cosy and a great form of sharing. And old fashioned and ridiculous, as I was told recently... I think I like being oldfashioned and ridiculous then ;)

as long as the kids and I all love it, I think it is the best we can do. Also evenings without television, with games or chat or just lots of cuddles. Winter evenings without electric light, just candles. It is so good, at least we think so.

I'm fine, just as usual. Are the dogs being a worry?
9:28 am
Judi

BBIAM. UPS man here. *growwwllll*
9:28 am
jean1953

Well I will be better when they have seen the vet, there is kennel cough going around and I think mine have it
9:29 am
Haz1558

It's annoying when that happens. Apparently the vaccine isn't very easy to administer (up the nose!) and it's not 100%.
9:30 am
jean1953

oh no the beagle willl hate that:( I cannot get an appointment till the morning, it has come on so quickly
9:30 am
BzznBea

You can give them cough syrup for humans. Although I'm not sure of the dosage.
9:31 am
Judi

Yuck. Up the nose vaccine. I thought they gave a shot for kennel cough.
9:31 am
Haz1558

If they already have it, I'm not sure that there's a great deal to be done other than symptomatic relief - the vaccine is usually given pre-boarding kennels as a preventative.
9:31 am
jean1953

can you, I never thought of that Bzzn might help them

Haz1558

They maybe have an injection in the States - over here it's an up the nose thing. Spangle is the most patient dog and she took it without too much difficulty but other dogs protest, understandably.
9:33 am
BzznBea

We gave our foster dogs cough syrup when they came in with it, Call your vet and ask. May help until they can get to theie appointment.
9:34 am
Haz1558

But don't wait until after midnight. We had a man ringing last night at 12/30 concerned that his parakeet had bled a bit.
9:34 am

The previous call had been the Old Folks Home, concerned about a wood pigeon with a broken wing. It was a bird themed evening.

9:35 am
crosshair

you a vet haz?
9:36 am
Haz1558

Apparently all the old people were beside themselves with worry. It had to be put to sleep, but they were probably happy that it wasn't suffering any more.
9:36 am
Haz1558

No, crossy, I'm married to one - specialises in dairy practice. We have long discussions about calvings and mastitis.
9:37 am
crosshair

you think you get weird house calls? lol ive had tourists call me from thier condos
at 2 am wanting me to open up a entire resort office just to deliver them a corkscrew!
9:37 am
Haz1558

His practice is mixed, so when I answer the emergency phone at night it could be a dog or a sheep or cattle, you just never know.
9:37 am
BzznBea

Bet that's interesting dinner conversation...=)
9:38 am
crosshair

lol reminds me of those james herriot novels that i love! cows and mastitis:)
9:38 am

Well, not so much conversation as polite attention!

Anything that causes the milk yield to drop is a problem to be sorted out.

darn typos..dont even bother to try and fix them any more.curse my fat fingers!

Yes, calf bed out, or lamb bed out - they rarely use the medical terms around here.
9:40 am

9:40 am

Thank you Bzzn have just spoken to the surgery and apparently I am ok to give them a teaspoon of benilyn so am off out to buy some will help till we get o the vets tommorow
9:40 am

9:41 am
BzznBea

Glad to help.
9:41 am
Haz1558

I did, cross. It's very funny although things have moved on a lot in the technical side. The characters still remain.
9:41 am
crosshair

whats wrong with the dogs jean?
9:41 am
jean1953

Just popping out of grid for half n hour to purchase some benilyn, Happy Babbling one and all see you in a while

See you jean.

9:42 am

you hate to board yer dogs here for fear of that
9:42 am
jean1953

right gone:)
9:43 am
Haz1558

It's not life-threatening, just annoying to listen to.
9:44 am
crosshair

thats one good thing bout cats.if you have to,you can set them up for up to a week on thier own
9:44 am
Haz1558

Yes, just make sure they know how to operate the vacuum.
9:45 am
crosshair

our one cat is quite neat,the butterscotch tabby things it fun to fl;ing the litter as far as possible
9:46 am
Haz1558

Cats are strange.
9:47 am
crosshair

i threaten to the wife that ill just smear a half jar of jam in each of thier coats..will keep them busy for 15 hours or so:)))
9:47 am
Haz1558

Yes, but think of what they might do!
9:48 am
crosshair

or ill just play the physics game with them and tie a piece of buttered bread to thier back butter side up and toss them in the air:))
9:50 am
Haz1558

Have you ever been psycho-analysed for psychopathic tendencies?
9:51 am
crosshair

think of the fun though,a cat tends to land on its feet,buttered bread tends to land buttered side down,ergo the whole thig should stop about 2 feet from the ground and just hover:))
9:51 am
Haz1558

It's a theory. Let us hope profoundly that you leave it as an untested theory!
9:52 am
crosshair

no,but i think they are watching me with cameras:)
9:52 am
Judi

Interesting theory, Crossy. Be sure to let PETA know when you'll be conducting experiments.
9:52 am
crosshair

actually i like the cats as they stop the wife from trying to stuff dogs into the apartment
9:52 am
Haz1558

Never mind the cameras. We'll get Anniebrook on the job. Watch out for a flying nun taking notes.
9:53 am
crosshair

we have a nun in our midst??
9:54 am
crosshair

mm i better shelve that joke about the nun,the cowboy and a camel then..:/
9:54 am
Haz1558

Well, no, not really. It's a kind of running joke - Anniebrook takes on a different persona when necessary.
9:56 am

lol im like sybl,i have 16 different personas and and invisible friend named bobo:) but im well adjusted:)

Hi, FM (and others in FM).
9:57 am
Haz1558

Hello FMitch. No, she's doing housework.
9:57 am
Haz1558

I was just thinking - how DO you explain Annie as a nun and montreal with a fedora?
9:57 am
FMitch

Good heavens, housework!!
Hey Judi :)
9:57 am
FMitch

Probably best not to otherwise they may send for the men in white coats again.
9:58 am
BzznBea

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that thinks housework is absurd.
9:58 am
Haz1558

That's true.
9:59 am
Haz1558

No, LoriP is persuaded of that as well, Bzzn.

I have yet to shake off my genetic conditioning.
9:59 am
FMitch

There are many that ban the mere mention of the word.
9:59 am
BzznBea

I think Sitz is a proper noun.
10:00 am
VolleymomDee

must be... maybe abbreviated version for name of inventor or something...
10:00 am

Imagine the horror if the word 'housework' appeared in the grid one day!

I'd have to be asking for a clue. =)

I used to wonder why my father couldn't cope with a headache. Then I started to get them (in my 40s) and all became clear.
10:04 am
VolleymomDee

came to a halt with 39 left... going to my pal lickety lol. Isn't that the truth, Haz? Can be totally debilitating.
10:04 am
Haz1558

I know, and I probably only get a mild version, very occasionally. I'd hate to have them more often.
10:04 am
BzznBea

I had horrible migraines then I divorced my 1st husband and have not had one since. Honest truth.
10:05 am
VolleymomDee

lol
10:05 am
Haz1558

It's a pretty drastic cure!

EvaNadine

yknow, if im gonna be forced to work from home (which i was, thanks to suffering all night from a migraine) the least that could happen is for me to have the cleaning tolls i need to do the cleaning i wanna do while im home!
10:08 am
Haz1558

Hello EvaN - what tools do you need?
10:09 am
EvaNadine

i need a toilet brush!
we use the ones with the flushable "brushes" and we are all out of refills...
10:09 am
Haz1558

I could send you some?
10:10 am
BzznBea

You can have all my cleaning tools, Eva. They are all "gently" used.
10:10 am
EvaNadine

i only seem to clean on the days i "work from home"
heh
10:10 am
Haz1558

Or could you cobble together something with kitchen towels and disinfectant?
10:10 am
BzznBea

Got rubber gloves?
10:10 am
EvaNadine

i have a sponge i could use, but i have no gloves...
10:11 am
Haz1558

At least you wouldn't have to sew. My kind of craft!
10:12 am
FMitch

LOL yea right Haz.
10:12 am
Haz1558

Could you cut the sponge to fit on the end of the handle thing?
10:12 am
EvaNadine

hrm. maybe....
i might try that in a few minutes -- right now, the cleaning products are re-stirring the headache...
10:13 am
EvaNadine

you might have solved my dilemma, haz :)
10:13 am

I'll take advantage of being smug while I can now that Ata's back.

10:15 am
Boobear

clue for et 7 please
10:15 am
Haz1558

If it doesn't work, it's not my fault. You'll have cut the sponge wrongly or something. The idea is fine...in theory!
10:15 am

Very enterprising Volly

I don't like touching raw meat, so discovered that trick when I was making hamburger patties. Ty fm

Were you fighting? or is it a sinus problem?
10:26 am

ty for the ge words. Maybe it will fizzle or not hit here. It has been so lovely, even with the clouds and the wind, and it isn't very crowded.
10:27 am

Could hit NC, could hit NY or could travel to Canada before making landfall/

EspritdJean

my case was in NJ and cost a fortune
11:02 am
MonkeyGames

My brother is in CA. I can ask him if he has any ideas...
11:02 am
joshuavorbis

but if it's about inheritance, a lawyer could do it on condition of getting a sum if they win
11:02 am
EspritdJean

also rarely done on a contingency basis
11:03 am
kje

OK, either need to start listing or take a break... so will be back later I guess
11:03 am

why would they do personal injury on contingency but not inheritance?
11:03 am
MonkeyGames

Here also, Esprid, but there are often places most people don't know about, like where I work, that can help.
11:03 am
EspritdJean

because the laws are more complicated
11:04 am
EspritdJean

liability is a lot easier to prove than inheritance contest
11:04 am
pugmama763

her aunt & father were to be dual inheritors of the parents house (worth quite a fair sum.Her father comitted suicide so she & her 1/2 sister were to get his share

Pug, who is the benefactor?

OK, well, I will contact my brother and ask if he has any ideas about the kinds of place/people to contact. No promises, but I'll see what he says.
11:04 am
pugmama763

now the aunt is declaring bankrupcy & listing the girls as unsecured creditors to write off
11:04 am

b/c personal injury often goes to jury that they can sway and have a chance of getting a huge payoff... inheritance usually a mediator or a judge and seldom huge payouts

6:46 pm
MetFan

They all are, Red - except when they're gay, then only half are jerks.
