I remember an Irish comic (popular in UK), his name was Dave Allan, talking about how when a kid hits 13 'it'loses the ability to talk English. He cited a 'phone call hen he answered and a male voice asked, 'Issedin?' He garnered from that that the caller wantedd to know if his son, Edwaard, was at home. However, 'Ed' came down, grabbed the handset and grunted into it sometiig like, 'Yezizere. Dyoowannadothecludzlata? Maybe some fit burdz?'

12:58 am
Jacula

dart - if you save for your old age in the UK and then get struck down by Senile dementia, for instance, you might find that everything you own has to be sold to pay for you care and your wife or husband, or partner, or even your children, might lose their home.
12:58 am

where i live, it means a New Englander.
12:58 am

used to refer to Americans in general...no insults or whatever intended

12:59 am

can happen here too jac.....and the one's who save will probably have to pay for the one's who don't or cant
12:59 am

I know in the States when one is referred to a yankee it may be used in an offensive manner. Here we just lovingly use the word to refer to our best friends and neighbours

in my riding....it's 90% liberal so what's the point in voting?...cant vote for the Prime Minister directly like the yanks can vote for their President
1:25 am

we don't vote directly. we vote for Electors to the Electoral College. In some states, Electors must vote as the polls say, in some states, they may vote as they will at the College.
1:25 am

yes, majority vote and loose election to to the Electoral College. Part of what led to Bush V Gore, and other issues through centuries now.
1:27 am

many of us want the Electoral College eliminated, so we get a direct vote for President.
1:27 am

I never quite understood your electoral process...prob cause I found it as boring as ours
1:28 am

Each state, and the District, get Electors = to total Reps + Senators, so beween 3 and i think 51.
1:28 am
dart001

supposedly to keep an uneducated mass of people from electing someone who shouldn't be elected
1:28 am
dcseain

in all states except for Maine and Nebrska, winner takes all elctoral votes. In ME and NE, who takes each congressional district gets that Elector, and who gets the state-wide gets the 2 other votes.
1:29 am
Just1Mar

all I know is that many editorals and OpEd pieces bemoan the fact that we have no charismatic Obama of our own and if people could vote for Obama to be PM here, they would in a heartbeat
1:29 am

but only about 40 states require Electors to vote as the electorate voted. So there is some variation, though not much.

one day I'll figure it out

our President is not like your PM in terms of power, though, so it's hard comparison to draw. Ours is PM plus Governor Gen'l, and is independent of who is in control of Congress.

the more you know justy...the more frustrated you'll get with the process...but it's still better th4 most
1:31 am
dcseain

1:32 am
Just1Mar

oh I agree 100%....and I still maintain that there's no other country I rather share a 5000mile border with than my yankke cousins,,,the good 'ole USofA!
1:33 am
dcseain

and that feeling is mutual, Just
1:33 am
Just1Mar

and so should you be happy that we are not another Mexico...
1:33 am
dart001

all the "spinning" of the facts...the pork in most of the bills...the politics of redrawing the boundaries every 10 years with the new census...the estimations they put into the census data etc
1:34 am
dart001

we are very happy to share the border with your country justy
1:34 am
Just1Mar

here too dartie...plus when it comes to numbers...they can be read so many different ways.....spin spin spin
1:34 am
Just1Mar

awww that makes me happy to hear :)
1:34 am
rbud

I think the census counts may be way off, I worked it in 2000 and as I hung the bags on the doorknobs, I wondered how many would simply get thrown out...
1:35 am
dart001

and the news media who can a story sound bad either way...and usually do to further their cause....used to be news was impartial..not much anymore
1:35 am
dcseain

Just, having been working for Customs, i am THRILLED at the relatons between CA and US, and would that MX had a strong enough gov't and enough will to even try to compare.
1:35 am
dart001

make a story
1:36 am
dcseain

yes, sad what's become of the News industry here in the US. :/
1:36 am
Just1Mar

I know dartie....your media is fking (pardon my french) is nuts...the propaganda...the lies, it's crazy
1:36 am
dart001

and some folks believe everything they hear or read thinking they are impartial...very sad
1:36 am
dcseain

my mother, for one :/
1:37 am
dcseain

i read mostly non-US news anymore, an read US mostly for comparison
1:37 am
dart001

many older folks...grew up with the old way of news
1:37 am
Just1Mar

yes I agree cause we get all the US stations and I can't beleive the shit that they put out there
1:38 am
dcseain

yes, i'm even old enough to remember how it used to be, in term of news and police behaviour.
1:38 am
Just1Mar

my son, who is only 27, reads first and foremost the BBC (on line) and has done so for many years now
1:39 am
dcseain

good choice on his part, IMHO
1:39 am
Just1Mar

it's very sad ...for example...all the bs the media is saying about Canada's health care system....it's so not true...
1:39 am
Jacula

Glad a Canadian told the US that the sun doesn't set eyc., and not me. LOL
1:39 am
dcseain

Jac, anyone in the world has the right to tell the US that.
1:40 am
dcseain

and under the current administration, even the Gov't will mostly back that statement.
1:40 am
jillibus

hello all -- is anyone working on the grid?
1:40 am
Just1Mar

sure we have probs but if you're sick...you get looked after, and looked after well....at 0 cost other than taxes (which is less than monthly health care premiums in the states
1:40 am
dcseain

yes, jilli, little by little :) evening
1:40 am
Jacula

Okay , dcs. USA - THE WORLD DOES NOT BEGIN AND END WIH YOU AND WHAT YOU THINK
1:40 am
dcseain

yes, indeed, just. the disinformation about healthcare is appalling.
1:41 am
dcseain

LOL jac :D
1:41 am
dart001

hi jilli and no
1:41 am
flosey

hi jilli - I've started working on it
1:41 am
jillibus

The outright lies being told about the Canadian healthcare system are beyond belief.
1:41 am
Just1Mar

they'd rather have people going into bankruptcy and worse than giving a god given right to health care to everyone
1:41 am
dcseain

howso, jilli?
1:41 am
jillibus

I haven't yet, flosey!
1:41 am
Just1Mar

hi jilli
1:42 am
Just1Mar

sometimes, as you know, the chat is more interesting than the grid :)
1:42 am
dcseain

oh, ABOUT not by, my bad, yes i agree, Jill
1:42 am
flosey

indeed Mar
1:42 am
Just1Mar

I mean c'mon....you have the god given right to bear arms, but not to take care of all sick people???? what is that about???
1:42 am
dart001

prob is i hear about 10 different stories about can health care...some from news..some from canadians...not sure what to believe...even the canadians differ on some facts
1:43 am
dcseain

having just had a job end, i'm now among the uninsured
1:43 am
Jacula

I've got 57 words off grid but am wandering off to zzzz now. See you all later.

Just, je suis d'accord
1:43 am
Just1Mar

bye jac...sorry this convo wasn't so interesting for you
1:44 am
dcseain

may you sleep well, jacula
1:44 am
dart001

prob didn't like the hockey talk either
1:44 am
jillibus

they say we can't choose our doctors -- we can. They say there are death committees -- there are not. They say we have to wait for urgent surgeries -- we don't. Electives, yes, and too long -- nobody's perfect. You name something negative they say about our system and I bet it's a lie.
1:44 am
Jacula

Jilli - re our comments on healthcare, scroll back on my comments re british healthcare.
1:44 am
Jacula

*your not our
1:45 am
dcseain

i have several yank friends who are now also Canadian living in Canada. They find the healthcare in ON MUCH easier to use and nicer to deal with than what they had in US.
1:45 am
dcseain

My Canadian friends here say the same, and many return to Canada for health care.
1:45 am
Just1Mar

that woman that they were showing on tv from Calgary, I think, who supposedly has a brain tumor.....well it was benign....not a threat....but they sure didn't tell you that part
1:45 am
Jacula

See mostt of you later, sad addixtd word freaks that we are.
1:46 am
dcseain

:) hasta, jac
1:46 am
dcseain

yep not all tumors/growths are cancerous
1:47 am
Just1Mar

this is true too dc many come here for health care and pay for it cause it's so much cheaper here than there...I mean 30$ for an aspirin?? c'mon geez
1:47 am
jillibus

g'night, jac
1:47 am
Just1Mar

but they neglected to tell you that it was benign....and that she was in no immediate danger
1:48 am
dcseain

Tom went to dental surgeon, who dispensed drugs at 1/4 the price of going to a pharmacy. It was odd. But that was in Maryland. Here in VA, i don't think they can dispense, only prescribe.
1:49 am
jillibus

Our system came in gradually -- at first as I recall it was just hospital stays which were covered, later doctors were included. And oh yes -- they are not paid a salary by the gov't -- they are paid by the visit just like any doctor in the USA.
1:50 am
dcseain

yes, i've read about the gradual implementation there in Canada. Seemed like a well thought out plan.
1:50 am
Just1Mar

yes jilli but here in Que...they do have a cap (at least gp's) on how many patients they can see within a month
1:51 am
Jacula

Jilli - I just came back to say that staying up late and sleeping in are also 2 of my very favopurite things. I worked for it and here I am.
1:51 am
dcseain

and i was fascinated reading about the origins if ICBC, speaking generally of insurance.
1:51 am
Just1Mar

I was a bit too young to remember that "implementation"
1:51 am
jillibus

The insurance companies didn't all go broke -- there's still plenty for them to cover -- things which are not covered under our system -- glasses, dentistry, pharmacalogical matters, etc etc.
1:51 am
dart001

no spinning therejusty...is there? jk :)
1:51 am
Just1Mar

oh me too Jac I am the quintissentail nighowl
1:52 am
Just1Mar

well young in the sense ...(late teens) that I didn;t much care. I was young, healthy lol now I'm old and failing
1:53 am
dcseain

optical insurance is my friend. And i've WAY gotten my use out of my Dental coverage while i had it.
1:53 am
jillibus

There are variations province to province but the main thing is that EVERYONE IS COVERED.
1:53 am
dart001

one of the biggest cost drivers here is malpratice insurance....too many lawyers!!
1:54 am
TraderKate

good morning all. so much for "no politics, no religion, no women"...came in about 20 mins. ago..at the electoral colleges...have been reading along since...sorry i missed out on this conversation. :-)
1:54 am
dcseain

yes, tort reform is needed, dart
1:54 am
Just1Mar

and here in Que, which I believe at the moment is the only prov, we have prescriptions covered by the gov;t.....they pay 2/3 the cost of your drugs
1:54 am
dart001

hi kate
1:54 am
TraderKate

TraderKate

hi jil.
1:55 am
Just1Mar

that's sooo true dartie...I don't think any doctors here pay for mal practice...we don't sue
1:55 am
Just1Mar

hi Katie
1:55 am
dcseain

ON has some coverage too, i'm told, though none as much as in QC i don't think.
1:55 am
jillibus

we're not a litigious society.
1:55 am
flosey

I'm off to bed, goodnight all, may be back tomorrow
1:56 am
TraderKate

i think each province has extraordinary prescription plans..in ontario its 'trillium'
1:56 am
dcseain

g'night, flosey
1:56 am
TraderKate

gn, flosey...sorry i missed you
1:56 am

jillibus

NIght flosey -- cute bunnies! Did you get some words?
1:57 am
dcseain

my Tom pays about 450/month for his maintenance meds, and that's with insurance coverage.
1:57 am
dart001

getting to be that way for everything...everytime there is a big settlement...the lawyers get about 30-40%.....even in divorces witha friendly split...they somehow get rich and the 2 divorcers don't keep most of their money
1:57 am
Just1Mar

yikes...
1:57 am
jillibus

yikes, dc!
1:57 am
Just1Mar

that's so sad...as sooo greedy
1:58 am
flosey

yes jilli, 55 down, may get back tomorrow
1:58 am
dcseain

well, he takes a LOT of meds, jill, he has multiple chronic conditions.

so sorry to hear dc...
1:58 am
jillibus

1:58 am
flosey

glad you can see my bunnies jilli - I can't - something strange going on with my computer, hope Shaw tech can straighten it out
1:59 am
Just1Mar

can you not now be covered under his plan dc? are you not spousal?
1:59 am
TraderKate

justie, our docs do pay malpractice ins. premiums are lower due to less litigation. true. but our society is becoming increasingly litigious... a trend i find quite alarming...
2:01 am
Just1Mar

oh really kate? maybe that's an Ont thing cause it's not like that here........yet
2:01 am
dcseain

we have no legal standing under Federal nor Commonwealth law, Just.
2:01 am
dart001

i'm sure there are no firm borders for greed
2:01 am
TraderKate

when i click your icon flosey, i see a blank screen???my gremlins at it again?

funny, TC -- I see a row of bunnies

BabbleRabble

and, of course, no one but lawyers want to prosper
2:02 am
dcseain

i think his employer will allow me to enroll with him during Open Season, which is in oct/nov
2:02 am
dcseain

i think his employer will allow me to enroll with him during Open Season, which is in oct/nov
2:02 am
Just1Mar

so if you got married ...let's say like here where it's legal...it wouldn't be recognized there?
2:02 am
dcseain

correct, just.
2:02 am
BabbleRabble

and I do not hear about the millions paid to ceos that ran their companies into the ground
2:02 am
dcseain

huh. wonder why that double posted. *shrug*
2:02 am
Just1Mar

that's so not right
2:03 am
TraderKate

everything's writ large in toronto...treally nthinking of personal injury suits though...no one sues their doc...except for those really crazy things...that make front page of the sun...
2:03 am
Just1Mar

well that's like a given babrab :(
2:03 am
dcseain

currently, if we married, it would be recognised in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, and Iowa, possibly California
2:04 am
TraderKate

isn't cal trying to revert?
2:04 am
dcseain

oh, and Maine
2:04 am
Just1Mar

well maryland is close by? no? maybe you could move there?
2:04 am
TraderKate

hi br
2:05 am
dcseain

Cal is trying to revert allowing same-sex marriage, an therefore anulling CA unions, but they would still likely recognize unions from other states. Maryland doesn't allow us to marry, but would recognize if we married where it is legal.
2:05 am
dart001

sometimes it depends on the insurance offered by the company too...i think
2:05 am
BabbleRabble

and no insurance company is guilty of greed
2:05 am
dcseain

neither of us wants to live in Maryland. We can walk there from where we live. It's different there in ways we don't want to live with.
2:05 am
Just1Mar

so come here....get married....and then return!
2:06 am
dcseain

BabbleRabble, your irony is entertaining to me.
2:06 am
dart001

you can be the witness justy!!
2:06 am
dcseain

he's been pushing for us to emigrate to Toronto or Montreal
2:06 am
Just1Mar

of course not babrab...no way
2:07 am
Just1Mar

well 2 very different cities ...2 very different cultures...TO is very big, very busy, tons of traffic 24/7
2:07 am
Just1Mar

Montreal is big too, but very different
2:07 am
dart001

and MTL?
2:07 am
Just1Mar

cost of living is much lower...
2:07 am
TraderKate

but a really great gay connunity
2:07 am
dcseain

MTL is smaller and quieter, and really quite a lovely place
2:08 am
dcseain

compared to here, southern ON is not expensive.
2:08 am
TraderKate


but a really great gay community, in both cities.... justie right very different 'life speeds'
2:08 am
dcseain

not even Toronto.
2:08 am
Just1Mar

here too kate....there's a section downtown called the "gay village"...it's one of the best places in Mtl
2:09 am
Just1Mar

just the quantity of people in S.Ont is for me...way to much to deal with
2:10 am
Just1Mar

but of course, if your partner doesn't speak french it may be more difficult but if his work is specialized , then it may not be
2:10 am
dcseain

we live in the most-populated county in our state, in the 9th largest metro area in the US, and in the 1st or 2nd worst traffic in the US. So we can deal with a lot
2:10 am
TraderKate

we have an district too...and the city is very gay-friendly...just look at pride week...it has become an international event/destination
2:10 am
dart001

dont move to the US east coast justy
2:10 am
Just1Mar

here too kate...
2:10 am
dart001

dc-boston
2:10 am
dcseain

i have a lot of friends in Kitchener-Waterloo
2:11 am
TraderKate

think dc and tom should move up here now
2:11 am
Just1Mar

as a matter of fact Montreal is so gay friendly that they count on gays coming here for tourist dollars
2:11 am
jillibus

There are gays and gays of all sorts and tastes of course.
2:12 am
Just1Mar

I know TO pretty well kate ...my sister (with whom I 've now been estrange with since early this year) lives there and I used to go there several times a year
2:12 am
dcseain

yes, Montreal and Quebec takes out big ads in our local gay papers and i see adds from both in my gmail and my facebook.
2:12 am
dcseain

indeed, jilli. The two of us have low need for gay community, for example.
2:12 am
TraderKate

<smugly> thinks that we are more progressive and accepting..not so worried if people don't fit into the mold here
2:13 am
jillibus

that's what I thought, dc
2:13 am
Just1Mar

they even make a "walking street" in the gay village during the spring and summer months...that's on the main downtown strip
2:13 am
Just1Mar

walking street = no cars allowed
2:14 am
TraderKate

we don't 'ghetto-ize' them if thet's what you mean...
2:14 am
Just1Mar

no we don't but it's just a section of town where they feel comfortable and like to congragate
2:14 am
dcseain

yep. we used to have a pedestrian mall at F and 8th Sts NW in DC. they've been reopened to traffic, though that's a low-volume area, and VERY ped-friendly compared to most of downtown
2:15 am
dcseain

like people are wont to congregate wherever they be
2:15 am
jillibus

I'd like to whup enable for not allowing whup
2:16 am

nothing to do with smart, believe me! Just copied one pic into the other, swindled with the size and then erased the background of the bunny by hand. Playing with tools too sophisticated for me.

I wonder if she'll be able to force herself to go into work. She'll just want to sit and look at her two favourite things.
4:33 am
Haz1558

I don't mind at all, sprite, well done for thinking of the idea!

Back in a mo coffee time.
4:40 am
sprite

thanks for asking, Haz. Yes she is, more active and not feverish much anymore. Just keeping her home because school asks us to. They are afraid of the swine flu and have temporary rules about kids with flu.
4:43 am
Haz1558

Fair enough, I think everyone is on alert for things getting worse.
4:45 am
Haz1558

My friend is a ward manager in a maternity unit and they have all sorts of protocols in place. I hope they don't have to be used.
4:46 am
sprite

indeed. I totally understand the protocols. The flu isn't that bad in itself, but society can become disrupted when too many people get it.
4:48 am
Haz1558

I suppose the big fear is that the 1918 disaster will recur again and they're pulling out all the stops to make sure that it doesn't kill as many people as that pandemic did.
4:50 am
sprite

yes probably. Every house and firm received an information leaflet about this flu, explaining the difference between normal flu/epidemic and a pandemic flu. Even though this flu is relatively mild, it may still kill many because nobody has antibodies yet.
4:52 am
Haz1558

2 weeks ago, I attended the funeral of the first victim of swine flu in Northern Ireland. However, to say that she had underlying medical problems was an understatement, she was terminally ill with cancer and the flu only hastened a certain end.
4:53 am
FMitch

sorry got side tracked by the phone, should have taken yr advice Haz.
4:53 am
Haz1558

However, she was only 39 and left a husband and two young children, so it was still very sad.
4:54 am
Haz1558

Always take my advice, FM, that's always been my advice.
4:54 am
sprite

am sorry for your loss, Haz. Flu is often fatal for people in weak health... did it rob her of time she still needed to say goodbye, or helped it her on her way to less suffering?
4:54 am
Haz1558

Except in matters relating to needles.
4:54 am
FMitch

oh that is no age is it, mind you cancer is indiscriminate.
4:55 am
Haz1558

I think it helped her on her way to less suffering. She had known that the cancer was terminal for 5 years, ever since first diagnosis.
4:55 am
sprite

may her husband and children find strength and some comfort
4:56 am
Haz1558

I couldn't watch them as they left the church behind the coffin, but they have a large family support and determination to live life as best they can.

not just you and she has been getting some bad press too.

That's right. Leave the slowcoach vainly looking for any sign of a wall on the horizon.

in consolation though, walls can be very good things.

Spangle can snore pretty loudly as well.

It's one of their less endearing characteristics.

Bit like husbands, eh?
8:29 am

very much so. though running competitions about who can snore loudest - dog or man - is quite funny

8:30 am
Haz1558

Hello liz - weather forecast is looking better for the next few days.
8:31 am
Haz1558

It's not raining at the minute and there's a balmy wind, it's quite strange.

Indeed it is, thank goodness, maybe stop me moaning ...maybe!

I ish I coudl sleep with earplugs, but they disturb me

8:32 am
lizmac

A bit "eye of the storm"=ish, isn't it. EEEEERIE.
8:33 am
Haz1558

I wouldn't be at all surprised if that was needed, Nef. However, getting him to see a doctor might be a problem.
8:33 am
Atalante

of course my husband is the only man who can still snore wearing a CPAP mask *faepalm*
8:33 am
Haz1558

Indeed, liz, strange weather.
8:34 am

you dont want me to tell you what the weather is like down here, do you?

No. Have pity on us northerners.

NOOOOO, Ata, not if it's sunny!
8:35 am
Atalante

lol. it's awful. really. rain, snow, tsunamis
8:35 am
Haz1558

And gales? And thunder?
8:35 am
Nef

The CPAP mask he wears is so quiet, the only way I know it's on and working is that he isn't snoring!
8:35 am
Atalante

no-one sunbathing at the morning by 8am at all
8:36 am
Atalante

gales, thunder, typhoons, hurricanes, you name it. it's even hailing frogs
8:36 am
lizmac

My son's just come back from being in Cambridge for a month and is muttering about Punting on the Cam on Friday, punting down to Tesco on Monday.
8:37 am
Haz1558

Hailing frogs. That's no way to talk about the French.
8:37 am
Nef

Sounds like pretty lousy weather, Haz and Ata
8:37 am
lizmac

Interesting thought, though.
8:37 am
Haz1558

As if you could compare Cambridge to the delights of Stranraer.
8:38 am
Atalante

I wish we did have rain. I've got to go up to London in an hour, and I can't possibly manage anything but shorts and a t-shirt to travel in. Far too hot. and we're going to the Proms. so everyone is going to have to put up with me wearing shorts adn a t-shirt. and I don't care
8:38 am

He's not EVEN in Stranraer, but St Andrews.
8:39 am

Poor boy, I'm sure he's pining for home.

I'll keep an eye out for you in the crowds, Ata, it's usually televised, isn't it?
8:39 am

:P
8:40 am

The "poor boy" is now in his 10th year of being a student, my heart bleeds for him on a daily basis.
8:40 am
Atalante

should be, is Max's Big Day. He's 75 today, and the proms today are some of him conducting and 3 things he's composed. BBC2 or something is bound to have it
8:41 am
Atalante

Peter Maxwell Davies I mean.
8:42 am
lizmac

I'll be sure to look out for the improperly dressed woman at the Proms, d'you know when it's on tele?
8:42 am
Haz1558

It's not on BBC2 tonight. We've got Patsy 'I'm such a rubbish actress that I have no facial expression' Kensit exploring her roots instead.
8:43 am
lizmac

Hmmmph.
8:43 am
Atalante

lucky lucky you!
8:44 am

I don't know whether I will watch it. I'd far rather scan the crowds for Ata.

Liz, is there any end in sight to perpetual student days for your son?
8:45 am

Haz1558

Is that a good or bad thing, mom?
8:46 am
mom2han8

Well... I'm not sure yet... it is a tad strong... but I have lots to do today, so maybe a good thing!
8:46 am

If you whizz through this grid at a rate of knots, it's going to be worth keeping.
8:47 am

8:47 am
lizmac

It would seem that there might be, Haz. He's applying for research fellowships at Cambridge. I must say, it sounds a hell of a lot like more studenting to me, but he assures me it's a job!!
8:48 am
Atalante

fellowships are definitely jobs!
8:48 am
Haz1558

It's only a job if he gets money and pays tax and starts sending you cheques every month.
8:49 am
lizmac

Or even stands me dinner once in a while.
8:49 am
Haz1558

It's the least he could do.
8:50 am
Atalante

what does he research?
8:51 am
Atalante

oh Haz! I saw a horrible thing in the latest Asda magazine. Something being called an "Old Wive's Tale". Should I faint and then write to them and complain?
8:51 am
lizmac

Anyway, better be off and take advantage of the dry . Ata, philosophy's his game, with politics his particular interest.
8:51 am
Atalante

ooooo interesting

According to wikipedia a "humpty dumpty" was a clumsy person, but a clumsy person would not break if it fell, so it was surmised that HD was an egg

my fast is coming up... i had my last meal yesterday at 4.30pm!! just soup a fruit juice today

5:18 pm
J. C.

He's looking younger and better all the time - it's good to see! :)
5:19 pm

Yes, but for him the exercise seems equally important. He's dieted before and not lost much weight.

mix your ground beef with a chopped onion, some ginger + some smashed up ginger cookies. brown those for about 5 minutes, flipping once.

pour the sauce over the browned burgers + finish cooking them, stirring the sauce allthewhile (about 10 min)

I won't say how unhappy I am with wild bunnies - and mr. mchubby's garden
6:51 pm
TraderKate

ty rbud they're for scrabs of course
6:52 pm
flosey

do hope scrabs doesn't see my last comment!
6:52 pm
TraderKate

you have a bunny problem flosey?
6:52 pm
rbud

seems we've had bunny themes often, TK, they will be useful, right?
6:53 pm
TraderKate

i'm sure she understands...and hers are perfectly behaved, i'm sure
6:53 pm
flosey

yes kate, we've lived here since l995 and this is the first year we've seen them in our area - seems they're up at the north end too
6:53 pm
flosey

oh yes, pet bunnies are fine, no problem there
6:53 pm
TraderKate

i will have to search out more bunnie then...this was the only one i had
6:53 pm
rbud

our cats pretty much discourage bunny action in our yard.
6:54 pm
TraderKate

so the tranquility of your island has been disturbed by the invasion of foreign bunnies imported from mainland?
6:54 pm
rbud

but we used to have a tame one that we let loose, he was here for years, got huge, made it through 4 or 5 winters, cats ignored him.
6:54 pm
flosey

haven't seen my cat since I came home Friday - have had 8 extras around so he stays away. We just put his food outside on the deck, he knows where to come
6:55 pm
TraderKate

that's a good solution
6:56 pm
flosey

he's pretty much an outdoor cat anyway and he has lots of space to run
6:56 pm
TraderKate

ah, he's annoyed that you left and now his home has been invaded by strangers when he just wants you all to himself?
6:56 pm
flosey

lol
6:58 pm
TraderKate

the cats i had never cared about the rabbits either..i taught them yung they could only catch mice and they were very good about not killing them...it was so cute to se them prance into the house with a mouthfulo of mouse trying to meow to get my attention for praise
6:59 pm
TraderKate

of course then they'd let mouse go, and the chase began all over again..what fun...my own catch and release program
6:59 pm
Bugsaw

Kate how do you teach a cat not to catch birds? or snakes that they bring in the house?
7:00 pm
flosey

ooooooooh, Bugs, does your cat bring snakes in?
7:01 pm
flosey

afraid that would be the end of that cat for me - we'd have to find him another home
7:01 pm
TraderKate

praise for good, tone of voice goes a ong way...never let anyone tell you cats can't be trained...i treated mne lije dogs and they were very obedient..lots of treats during training helped
7:01 pm

redturtlehead

it doesnt describe me either.
7:04 pm
TraderKate

and no, cats never brought snake hom but did find the occasional garter snake in yard..not very curious about them.someone told me catds are instinctively afraid of snakes...but think bugs would disagree
7:04 pm
redturtlehead

One of my Mothers Cats does bring her snakes, but they are usually dead.
7:06 pm
TraderKate

did have a bit of trouble teaching them that chipmunks were not fair game..when i lived in streetsville, they had never seen one before and thought they were big juicy mice...
7:06 pm
TraderKate

red - bet your mother wasn't impressed with that
7:07 pm
redturtlehead

My mom is tougher, it really didnt bother her too much. THey live very rurally so...
7:07 pm
TraderKate

7:07 pm
flosey

we're in rural area also, do have snakes on the property - as a result, I don't garden
7:08 pm
redturtlehead

I one found a live one curled up in a drawer in their house, I was not at all pleased.
7:08 pm
flosey

oh, red, whew, it'd be much less than pleased
7:09 pm
redturtlehead

I had to call the neighbour from down the road to drive over and let it go.
7:09 pm

7:13 pm
TraderKate

7:13 pm
Bugsaw

It is what I usually do with mice that are running around in the house so I can slide a board under the pot and lift the whole thing outside before dropping and running away.

7:14 pm

7:14 pm

7:18 pm
TraderKate

yum yum jc...mine never killed them, brought them in for me to see what good hunters they were...then they'd let them go and we'd have to catch them and put them out.,..but lots of fun
7:18 pm
J. C.

It's a great picture - I'm sure Scrabbler will appreciate it, or has she seen it yet?
7:18 pm

7:20 pm

ah, welki, I was born/raised in Springfield, MA, so quite familiar with Auburn
7:24 pm

lambertville is a very old town, goes back to the 1700s .. i suppose halloween is a big thing, all those old houses. i miss mine (was built in 1840)
7:24 pm
redturtlehead

Whoa! In CHapel Hill Halloween is a big deal but it stops being family friendly after 9pm...and starts being college student friendly.
7:25 pm
Dorens

i like lambertsville better than new hope... new hope has gotten so tacky in the last few decades
7:25 pm

EvaNadine

thankyou to you too lbd. :)
7:28 pm
J. C.

Ooh, yes - congratulations, Eva! :) Beautiful ring!!!
7:28 pm
TraderKate

it's more perception than reality jc...a lot of parent s have a block party sort of affair rather than trick or treating fo r the kids now
7:28 pm
flosey

wow, fireworks, didn't realize I was that close
7:28 pm
Bugsaw

Congrats Eva. The ring is beautiful and I hope you will be happy.

I'm not that close... 19 left
7:29 pm

no more reason than there ever was. just more freak show tv to exploit the few cases there are
7:29 pm
Bugsaw

Well I miss it JC. I loved it when the kids came to the door all dressed up and loved it when you knew what they were supposed to be. They are so cute when they are little.
7:30 pm
J. C.

Oh, I see . . . yes, perhaps.
7:30 pm

7:31 pm
TraderKate

the apartment buildings out this way usually have a table set up in lobby manned by volunteers and donatins from tennants
7:32 pm
lbdawger

i like that idea for an apartment complex. not everyone is bothered by the knocking and noise and mess!
7:32 pm
TraderKate

my place in streetsville was like that flo...not a single kid in 3 years
7:32 pm
nrkii

see, I'm very strict about trick-or-treating... I make sure the kids actually say "trick or treat" or they get nothing from me... it's my way of teaching the teenagers some manners :)
7:33 pm
lbdawger

i live outside of the city limits, it's really dark out here and no kids to speak of.
7:33 pm
welki

you can try that up until they're about 13, nrk ... after that, they'll come back and paper your house!
7:33 pm
TraderKate

good for you nrkii...they shouldn't be out after grade 8 for sure
7:33 pm
Dorens

i'm the same way nrk... my mother was too... i do it nicely though
7:33 pm

7:36 pm
nrkii

I don't tell them they're too old, but if they're not in costume, I do question them about what they're dressed as, and I do wait for them to say trick or treat before they get anything
7:36 pm
