Hi Haz
3:37 am
Andree

it is really viscious
3:37 am
Just1Mar

oh my...and where did he post it?
3:37 am
Andree

he sent a mass email to a lot of babblers, called them " followers" to give the link
3:38 am
Just1Mar

Unreal..glad he doesn't have mine
3:38 am

people need to get a life

3:40 am
Just1Mar

last I checked, the "western" world still enjoyed the freedom of choice to live as they wish
3:41 am
Andree

good heavens
3:41 am
Haz1558

Yes, but if people make what other people regard as foolish choices, they must be shown the error of their ways.
3:42 am
Andree

the word followers makes one wonder if he thinks he is j c himself or hitler
3:42 am
mrpresident

where the hell did he start a blog andree?? and why pick on you??
3:42 am
Haz1558

Hitler was fond of animals as well.

because i am getting a puppy from a breeder, i just emailed herin to ask if you had this info, i will email it to you now
3:43 am

This is the 3rd earthquake in a short period of time in Melbourne... hmmmm
3:44 am

well said babble, but hanged if i am going to be silent
3:44 am
mrpresident

please do andree...
3:45 am
Haz1558

On the other hand, Oscar Wilde once said something along the lines that the only thing worse than being talked about was not being talked about.
3:45 am
jillibus

I believe the problem is that the puppy is a "designer" breed.
3:46 am
Haz1558

And that's worth the aggravation?
3:46 am
BabbleRabble

the point is that those who received the mailing are enablers if they do not protest
3:47 am
jillibus

I'm not getting into this. I'm a coward.
3:47 am
mrpresident

I personally got my dog from a breeder as I had little children... I wanted a dog that had a stable temperment, and no (or little chance of) health issues. I got a pure breed just for that reason.
3:48 am
Haz1558

At least one did protest, BabbleRabble, very courageously in my opinion. Perhaps the other followers realise that they are dealing with a closed mind and resistance is futile.
3:48 am
jillibus

That's the reason for purebreds -- reliability.
3:49 am
mrpresident

there is a good site in australia called dogzonline.com.au andree... go look at the discussions there rather than worry about the blog.
3:49 am
mrpresident

too right jilli
3:50 am
Haz1558

Can I just say, as a dog owner, that I'm kind of disgusted with myself and others that we talk so much about dogs etc, but forget that there are millions of children in awful circumstances all over the world and we do so little to help. Our priorities are skewed.
3:50 am
Ray100

Don't usually join these debates but can't resist this time - nobody needs to justify their choice of pet! Surely there are more important issues?
3:52 am
Andree

i have chosen a cross breed and i feel for you jilli as you are being used by jc in a cruel way
3:52 am
Haz1558

Yes, Ray, there are. Unfortunately, Andree has been lambasted for making a choice.
3:53 am
jillibus

I am not being used at all.
3:53 am
mrpresident

I give reasons for what I do. I never need to justify anything... everyone can make their choices and be happy with them.
3:54 am
Andree

thats what i thought til this happened
3:54 am
mrpresident

I would love to cross my sheltie with a whippet... would be a wonderful dog in my opinion! I have seen them and they are such lovely dogs.
3:55 am
Andree

are you justifying j c's behaviour jilli
3:55 am
jillibus

so get a Whippet! Why cross?
3:55 am
Just1Mar

Speaking of helping people, did you know that Metallica, the heavy metal band, gives back to the community in the cities where they perform. They played 2 sold out concerts here in Montreal (about 25,000 seat arena) and gave one of the best known non-profit organizations $21,000! (Sun Youth Jilli)
3:55 am
Andree

mrp nothing but a rescue dog will do apparently
3:55 am
mrpresident

not at all jilli, she is only commenting on the reliability of temperment of pure breeds.
3:56 am
Andree

wow thats great just
3:56 am
mrpresident

some people are passionate about saving animals. But choices are ours to make.
3:56 am
Just1Mar

I may not like their music too much but they sure do the right thing!
3:57 am
mrpresident

I love Metallica!
3:57 am
mrpresident

I prefer to take in foster children
3:57 am
Haz1558

I have a feeling that i'd have needed extra strength ear plugs for those concerts, but it's great that they plough back the profits.
3:57 am
mrpresident

but that is my choice on this planet of many issues
3:58 am
Just1Mar

lol I didn't go Haz

choice is such a personal thing and i have chosen a dog and now am in the eye of a really nasty personal attack

oh andree! ((hugs))... I am so sorry this has happened... you don't need this.

You're sure they're not forming a kind of froggy ladder, standing on each other's shoulders?
4:00 am
mrpresident

LOL haz! I believe they might be!
4:01 am
Andree

no one does , whats to stop him lifting other babblers profiles?
4:01 am
Ray100

let it go Andree - ignore him/her..easier said than done I know but ultimately better for your peace of mind.
4:01 am
Haz1558

Either that or thay're taking a good run up for the jump.
4:02 am

What have you asked DRGod to do about it?
4:02 am
Ray100

dogs...frogs.....what next?
4:03 am
Andree

dr god has had every man and his dog email him, he has had the picture removed but my words are still on his blog
4:06 am
Haz1558

Dr-G wants a quiet life. You have two options, Andree, you can either allow this to annoy you and frustrate you, or you can choose to ignore and go on. In a sense you have been a sacrificial lamb, but your ordeal has served, hopefully, to make others aware of the potential for cyber-bullying and negativity.
4:07 am
mrpresident

Oh boy Andree, that is a strong blog... trif makes a good point, as does jilli. It looks like bully tactics to me.
4:08 am
jillibus

I'm going to bed. Goodnight everyone. I had hoped to enjoy babbling but . . .
4:08 am
redturtlehead

I have to go to work, but Andree, I really don't think there is much you can do about what JC did, our profiles are public and all that... I think JC basically does what he does to draw attention to himself (As I stated the other day)...you'll note how often the blog entry draws attention to HIm, rather than anything else. At this point, I would just ignore it, as he probably knows he is a persona non grata here on the chog.
4:09 am
Haz1558

Goodnight, jillibus.
4:09 am
redturtlehead

but it is hard to ignore, I understand.
4:09 am
mrpresident

perhaps JC needs time to cool his heels on this one. and yes, he has personally had a go at you. how utterly sad for you and not cool of JC. His pics depict him as a narcisist, whatever he says must be right in his eyes, but that is his personality... take it with a grain of salt, at least he isn't your brother.
4:09 am
mrpresident

night jilli
4:09 am
Andree

bye jilli, hi red
4:10 am
redturtlehead

MrP you have an excellent point, in that he is not someones brother!
4:10 am
Andree

not my brother but sure he is related to ex husband,lol
4:10 am
mrpresident

I thought you might say that andree! LOL!
4:11 am

On another note, I am not happy that my icon seems to be rather messed up.... on the chog it is my dog, but when I click on it....

4:18 am
Just1Mar

sigh..we have a day long fast coming up on the 28th but it's not hard for me, I don't eat very much anymore
4:19 am
Haz1558

This is a result of your enforced invalidity, Just?
4:19 am
lynxxx

Why Just? (and Happy New Year!)
4:20 am
Just1Mar

ummm it that a British expression cause I'm not following haz lol
4:20 am
Just1Mar

thx lynxx on the 28th it's Yom Kippur, day of atonement
4:20 am
Haz1558

I meant, was it because you were laid up for a while, did you lose your appetite?
4:21 am
lynxxx

I was wondering why you don't eat very much anymore (like Haz)
4:21 am
Just1Mar

ohh partly, because it was too much trouble but it started about a year before that.
4:22 am
Just1Mar

when I couldn't walk it was just way too much trouble to get to the fridge lol but now I'm mobile and I still don't go to the fridge
4:22 am

For Oz, maybe. 10 to 11 in the morning here.

Finding the grid hard.

5:00 am
Sally-catlover

Very slow. Only have 47 words so far. Have to dash for an appointment now but will be back, renewed, invigorated and able to knock it on the head in 10 minutes - or something like that :-))
5:00 am

yeah right Sally! see you later

G'd Morning Babblers! The layout of these letters makes this grid have great craptacularity potential....
5:38 am
Atalante

Lorikins! Mad Cat Lady!
5:38 am
Scrabbler

Today's barrage from him to me = my decision last evening to place ansering machine on at 7:08 pm instead of waiting til 7:30 because we had no nurse to take phone calls and I had 3 patients to take care of still. I cannot do phone calls and take care of patients in a timely manner. He called office at 7:16 in a huff because he discovered machine was on
5:39 am
lynxxx

hi Lori! good to see you
5:39 am
Scrabbler

Hi Lori--great word = craptacularity
5:39 am
Scrabbler

He will certainly belittle me some more today. I can't wait.
5:39 am
lynxxx

the guy is an overbearing twit!
5:39 am
LoriP

Hey Scrabbler, he's someone else's problem soon, sucks to be him!
5:40 am
LoriP

***Prefers 'Loopy Cat Lady'*** :p
5:40 am

I will tell him those comments, Lori + Lynxxx--perfect descriptions
5:41 am

Loopy Shed Cat Lady
5:41 am
LoriP

Loopy leaky cold shed cat lady.....
5:42 am
Scrabbler

There has been a dead cat on the side of the road nearby for 5 days and I want to get the cat and bury it yet I am waiting for an owner to search for a missing cat and find the evidence. What should I do?
5:42 am
Atalante

poor kitties!!!
5:42 am
Atalante

leave it, unfortunately
5:42 am
Scrabbler

Lori, do you have stray cats in your shed? Bats in your belfry?
5:42 am
LoriP

Bury it. Remember the description. 5 days is too long. IMO
5:43 am
Atalante

lol well there's your 2 options promoted :P
5:43 am
lynxxx

Contact the local vets or council where people might have made contact looking for it?
5:43 am
LoriP

Bats in my belfry? All my life.....
5:43 am
Scrabbler

I will wait a few more days. A cat deserves the dignity of a burial.
5:43 am
LoriP

We pretty much polarized that issue, no? :D
5:44 am
Scrabbler

Good idea, lynxxx
5:44 am
Atalante

yes, it does. good idea, lyn
5:44 am
LoriP

Anything else we can be of no help with?
5:44 am
Atalante

lmao that question just sums up life, doesnt it?
5:44 am
lynxxx

lol Lori
5:45 am
Scrabbler

TY, Lori, for confirming that there are usually at least 2 choices for everything: this or that
5:46 am
LoriP

True enough. Lynx was the most sensible. I'm still lobbying for burial, but I've never let Lynx's common sense approach hold me back before, so why start now.
5:47 am
lynxxx

Oh but I would bury ASAP after I had made those contacts
5:48 am
Atalante

lyn's always wonderfully sensible
5:48 am
Scrabbler

A cat is just different than a skunk, a raccoon, etc. It does bother me to see all roadkill, esp cats, deer and foxes
5:49 am
LoriP

She is, it makes me jealous, because I'm a fly by the seat of my pants kinda' gal.
5:49 am
Atalante

how many cats round near you are microchipped?
5:49 am
lynxxx

old, sensible - I feel so good!
5:50 am
Scrabbler

I don't know, Ata
5:50 am
LoriP

It hasn't taken hold here in the Maritimes yet Ata.
5:50 am
Atalante

microchipping is a wodnerful thing!
5:50 am
Atalante

and really helps sorting out randomly found animals, in whatever condition
5:53 am
Scrabbler

First day of autumn! It has been a lovely last 3 wks here after a rainy few months
5:54 am
lynxxx

Our local council requires microchipping for all new registrations...and all dogs thru rehoming are automatically desexed and microchipped now - not too sure about cats though
5:55 am
lynxxx

Looks like cats are too, good stuff

Hello Lori and Trif - belated happy birthday for yesterday.

Whose birthday was yesterday? I missed it.
6:00 am
Trifioso

thanks haz! so -- any one get an email inviting them to visit the "trifioso is evil" blog yet? ha ha ha
6:00 am
Trifioso

mine, scrabbler, I am now a delightful 44 years old.
6:00 am
Haz1558

Ata! Nice to see you, as always.
6:01 am
Atalante

Trif, I was sooooo impressed with you
6:01 am
Trifioso

thanks ata. Though what I feared happened did happen -- somehow *I* became the target in his replies. He does love to write, doesn't he?
6:01 am
LoriP

I always though FM was the root of all evil, but it's tri. Who knew.
6:01 am
Haz1558

I'm not likely to be asked, Trif. Well done for speaking up, though I fear it was a lost cause from the beginning.
6:02 am
Trifioso

but I will say - if you look carefully, he edited out almost every single thing I challenged him on.
6:02 am
lynxxx

I'm not on the special email list. Don't know why! and yes Trif, good job
6:02 am
Atalante

oh of course, he couldn't answer properly! and I would have done the same, except I can't imagine he'd let me comment on his blogs!
6:03 am
Atalante

I suupose I could create a sneaky sekrit identity
6:03 am
Haz1558

You'd better take off your anti-PETA t-shirt.
6:03 am
Trifioso

I think whoever wants to comment can. My FAVORITE thing about it all is the assertion that he loves animals so much, yet every photo except one is 80% him, and a little dog down in the corner. What was that about animals being accessories, dear?
6:04 am
Atalante

my anti-peta shirt is glued on
6:05 am
Haz1558

Non-animal fat glue, I hope?
6:05 am

it has been for years!

Hello, Andree. Did Pat give you the run around?
6:06 am
Haz1558

Good morning, jacq.
6:06 am
Trifioso

you know what? WHATEVER to the whole thing. I suppose we should stop giving him more publicity here, and not talk about it at all. that seems to be a just punishement.
6:06 am

Hi jacq

who had a birthday?
6:06 am

there was a lovely thing friend and I found last week - a quote from PETA saying that cats and dogs shouldn't be left at vets overnight because vets could well mistreat them!
6:06 am

G'd morning Jac, Andree

It's well known that vets spend their evenings and nights torturing animals. They have nothing better to do, don't you know.

I thought so. I can imagine that

Good morning, wolvie.

has anyone seen him on babble since the trauma?
6:07 am

hi wolvie
6:07 am
Haz1558

Many's the evening has been interrupted with husband declaring that he just had to go in and pr4/6 the sleeping animals.
6:08 am
LoriP

I thought everybody knew vets hate animals. duh....
6:08 am
Trifioso

oh, scrabbler - quick question - are speech paths much in demand in your area? is it a solid profession to go into, or do you see much decline in demand ahead?
6:08 am
Atalante

haz delights in poking kittens in the evening
6:08 am
Scrabbler

I must play words in games over on FB and then get to work to face degradation from Richard.
6:08 am
Wolvie

;-) haz
6:08 am
Scrabbler

Oh, yes, good field, Trif. Audiology too
6:08 am
Andree

no ata, as far as i know , you only have to look at the nasty blog to see he has hardly any support
6:09 am
Trifioso

I think being a vet might lead one to hate animals - sort of like being a pediatrician might lead one to hate children. you hardly see them at their best, anyway
6:09 am
Wolvie

degradation scrabs? has he gotten worse?
6:09 am
LoriP

Headed out Scrabbler? Have a great day!
6:09 am
Scrabbler

trif--kids need ST a lot and with aging population (strokes/dementia) old folks need help too
6:09 am
Atalante

well that's one thing, I guess!
6:09 am
Wolvie

at any rate scrabs- have the best day you can. :-)
6:09 am
Scrabbler

Oh, I love the kids, at least until adolescence, it's the parents that make me crazy
6:09 am
Trifioso

thanks scrabbler...have an (old, now) undergrad in SP and am mulling over going for the masters. I think I would probably rather work with adults with stroke/brain injury...
6:10 am
Haz1558

So far husband hasn't come to dislke animals but he thinks there is a growing population of small animal owners who are nutters.
6:10 am
Scrabbler

Another conflict developed last night, Wolvie--his problem really not mine but he will unleash on me today
6:10 am
Wolvie

good thing you are getting out scrabs. Be well.
6:10 am
Scrabbler

Trif, there is always the endless supply of young, reckless males with TBIs
6:10 am
Atalante

I think james herriot proved that one
6:10 am
Andree

never mind scrabbler only a few days left
6:10 am
LoriP

Sucks to be him Scrabbler.....
6:10 am
Wolvie

haz - i think your hubby is right, and I am not even a vet. :-)
6:11 am
Wolvie

ata - lol
6:11 am
Trifioso

scrabs, one of my british friends gave me some excellent advice - when dr. head is going off, in your mind say "oh you silly bitch" in an english accent. all is well
6:12 am
Scrabbler

It does, Lori, and my final farewell to him will be to wish him peace because he needs it
6:12 am
Scrabbler

I'll try it, Trif
6:13 am
LoriP

He does. As muc as people like that push 'yer buttons, he's a truly unhappy man, and that's sad.
6:13 am
Atalante

I was so amused when I was in Oregon - the US has a wonderful set of cartoons called Bucky Kat about a psycho cat, his owner and the owner's dog. And half way through a cartoon strip there was a picture in the background with the caption "Tricky Woo". I bounced around the room going "James herriot reference"
6:13 am
Wolvie

get fuzzy. one of my favs.
6:13 am
Wolvie

another gem is Pearls before swine.
6:14 am
Atalante

oh yes, get fuzzy officially. was having a blank moment!
6:14 am
Wolvie

I call my little kit kat - bucket - in reference to bucky lol
6:14 am
Trifioso

LOVE me some get fuzzy
6:14 am
Wolvie

no no ata, I was agreeing with you - great strip
6:15 am

it really is. I *love* it

Okay kids, I'm hating this grid. Gonna' wander away for a bit. Have a good one all!

oh, animal folks, you will love this - when I went out to split logs yesterday, the very first log I moved had a beautiful salamander under it! jet black, with brilliant bright yellow spots. She was about five inches long, and so cute! we oohed and aahed over her for a bit, and then found her a nice new home under an old log pile. :)

there is indeed gort. most offensive
6:17 am

Everything is so much more exotic abroad. All we would find under a log would be wood lice.
6:17 am

hey andree
6:18 am

very cool trif. :-)
6:18 am
Haz1558

gortmold, it's not eavesdropping.
6:18 am
gortmold

sorry to hear that trif, how do i avoid it?
6:18 am
Trifioso

on the downside, I am evvvvvver so careful about rolling the logs now. I don't mind salamanders, but other slithery things not so much
6:18 am
jacq

who's being bullied? and by who?
6:18 am

have no idea, gort. the victim of the bullying certainly did not deserve the roasting she got.

Atalante

oh haz - a question - when St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland, did that include Northern Ireland too? In the legends, I mean
6:19 am
Haz1558

Absolutely, Ata. No border in those days.
6:19 am
Trifioso

but I must say I am happy to hear that you weren't aware of it -- means he didn't get to everyone.
6:19 am
Wolvie

I am at sea gort. just checked in recently myself
6:19 am
Atalante

I thought so, ty. Was talking about it to American friends, and thought then that I'd have to check with you at some time!
6:19 am
jacq

who is he?
6:20 am
gortmold

how did he get to you trif? thru babble or another site?
6:20 am
Andree

i am the one being bullied, as i have chosen a dog from a breeder, j c has lifted my profile to start a blog
6:20 am
EspritdJean

havce you been deported wolvie?
6:20 am
Haz1558

Don't forget that St Patrick was up north for much of his time. He herded sheep not far from here.
6:20 am
Trifioso

Haz, I heard that 'snakes' didn't actually refer to the reptiles themselves, but the pagans, who had a serpent as their symbol, and that is who he drove out. Geographically speaking, Ireland never had snakes on the ireland to begin with
6:20 am
Wolvie

you are kidding, right andree?
6:20 am
Wolvie

no, I was lost in the waves of the chat. lol
6:20 am
gortmold

oooooh, think light is starting to dawn in gort's dark noggin, sorry to hear it andree
6:20 am
Trifioso

but several babblers were contacted via email to alert them to the creation of the site - seeking support.
6:20 am
Wolvie

hi jean
6:21 am
jacq

oh dear, Andree, ignore it and if it gets worse then report it to your isp, who will g to his isp and ban him, you can get your per from wherever you choose
6:21 am
Haz1558

Trif, you can't go spoiling a good St Patrick story!
6:21 am
EspritdJean

hey everyone
6:21 am
gortmold

so it's cyber ganging up?
6:21 am
Atalante

andree - I showed the *edited* blog to best friend and she read it, and there was this long long silence. And then she just said "is he f***ing insane?"
6:21 am
Wolvie

oh my. Andree - this person should have their butt kicked
6:21 am
jacq

how dare he suggest one source is better than the other and that you are less than a good person for not wanting potential problems
6:21 am
Atalante

another claim to fame!
6:22 am
Trifioso

brb - bus stop shuffle!
6:22 am
Wolvie

what blog is this? anyway to crash it?
6:22 am
Andree

not kidding, a mass email was sent to get and i quote " followers" and a blog was created using my profile
6:22 am
Wolvie

as in overload it?
6:22 am
Haz1558

That's the spirit, Wolvie! Direct action!
6:22 am
jacq

yes wolvie there is a way to crash it, but that is bullying too, report it to the provider for abuse it will be closed properly
6:23 am
Trifioso

best not to visit it at all, wolvie - don't want to drive the visitor count up...
6:23 am
Wolvie

Only way, haz, only way
6:23 am
gortmold

oh boy, andree, that's appalling. hjow did you found out about it?
6:23 am
Wolvie

true jac - especially if he stole andrees name and such
6:23 am
Wolvie

I hear you trif
6:24 am
Wolvie

who is the babbler that did this? It must have been in my spam folder lol
6:24 am
jacq

exactly, but abuse can be anything from bad mouthing someone to posting details one would expect to remain orivate and yahoo, for example will close the blog rather than risk anything worse
6:24 am

heya ata
6:25 am
Wolvie

well I don't count on isps or such - that lady who bullied a 13 year old into suicide walked away clean. Pi***ed me off
6:25 am
jacq

it was a babbler who did this? i just read that again
6:25 am
Andree

lots of lovely babblers alerted me and sent me the original email and the link to the blog and have all been so supportive and trif is the hero of the hour , she went onto the blog and gave J c a big serve
6:25 am
Wolvie

that was what I thought I read earlier - I signed on too late to get the info the first time
6:26 am
Wolvie

JC... is? and good for Trif
6:26 am
Trifioso

thanks andree - can I say I was a little surprised more people didn't comment, but I guess they feared what ended up happening to me - targeting.
6:26 am
gortmold

i see, andree
6:26 am
Atalante

I totally would have done if I'd seen the blog before last night!
6:27 am
suefrad625

I am sorry Adree, I just dont blog
6:27 am
jacq

well i for one wasn't notified or informed because i am nobody, but if i had been i have a huge mouth and fast fingers, i would have said plenty
6:27 am
Wolvie

I didn't see it trif - still haven't thankfully
6:27 am
gortmold

so any ideas for a constructive, helpful way to respond that will allow for happy future babbling?
6:27 am
Wolvie

that may be what happened to me too jac. ;-)
6:27 am
gortmold

while still taking into account the hurt and damage done?
6:27 am
Trifioso

I have no problem at all with him wanting to start a blog stating his views on the subject, and supporting rescue dog adoption. if that is his thing, rock on. But to single out an individual, and take stuff from a profile with out permission, and to write slanderous comments claiming opinions as facts just got my irish up.
6:27 am
Wolvie

ignore the person who started the blog sounds reasonable to me
6:27 am
jacq

lol it's great being nobody
6:28 am
Wolvie

I just need the handle so I know who it is
6:28 am
Trifioso

and now I really need to run for the bus!
6:28 am
Haz1558

Trif, he is a master at manipulating people and words. I've been the subject of one of his mass e-mails as well (a while ago now) and it showed me that he is dangerous.
6:28 am
Andree

he has singlehandedly split babble, fortunatly he has few at his end of the split
6:28 am
jacq

my daughter rewscued a dog, and it was a lunatic, even the vet and dog trainer told her to get rid of it
6:28 am
Wolvie

haz - who is he?
6:28 am
Atalante

he just thinks I'm the anti-christ, at least
6:29 am
Haz1558

J.C. Wolvie.
6:29 am
Wolvie

my rescue dogs have been good, but I have a pure bred collie now and a rescue.
6:29 am
jacq

who is JC? is he Bob's son?
6:29 am
gortmold

rueful lol, ata
6:29 am
Wolvie

JC. okay. I will ignore that person. Not that he will care, lol
6:29 am
Wolvie

oh man ata, he must be a dweeb
6:30 am
Atalante

taking a rescue dog is a different commitmnt to taking a breeder's dog. It depends what you can manage and want out of the dog
6:30 am
gortmold

well, he is the Big JC, so if you are in opposition, you must be the AntiChrist (sorry, gorty makes weak joke in puny attempt to sympathise)
6:30 am
Wolvie

I do both ata - the collie came up, and I love collies, so I purchased him, and my other dog I adopted from a shelter. As you say, they both take work. :-)
6:30 am
jacq

some rescue dogs are damaged, i remember the conversation we all had about going to a breeder or a rescue centre, it's a very personal choice and nobodies business
6:31 am
Wolvie

I agree jac
6:31 am
jacq

lol gort
6:31 am
Wolvie

I get it gort. lol

6:36 am
gortmold

r americans notorious for woossy coffee?
6:36 am
Wolvie

in some areas it tastes like skim milk, you know, rinse water? just a bit of color? ;-)
6:37 am
gortmold

i always thought americans were uncommonly clever for building their coffee machines into their houses
6:37 am
gortmold

in oz, houses and coffee machines are separate packages, which is dumb and leads to sadness and lethargy
6:37 am
Atalante

america is the only place Ive seen people drink quadruple expressos!
6:38 am
Wolvie

?? sometimes. but if you are talking about the ones that are actually hard piped in, the avenues for trouble are a good deal for a plumber. lol
6:38 am
Wolvie

rofl ata - it's the only way to keep up with you
6:38 am
Andree

my son and d i l have just moved into a lovely house they built and pride of place in the kitchen is the built in coffee maker
6:38 am
gortmold

america..land of the free and the home of the caffeinated...must go there soon
6:39 am
Wolvie

my coffee machine is an item I can move around, so it is like yours. It does brew into a thermal carafe tho
6:39 am
Wolvie

yes, caffeine is king - I often think of america as land of the colas - lol
6:39 am
gortmold

plus wolv, didn't your people invent starbucks, which is a solidly good thing?
6:40 am
Wolvie

I plan on getting one myself andree, I am just going to make sure all the plumbing is very accessible

6:43 am
gortmold

beautiful analogy, sue
6:43 am
Atalante

no coffee, no coffee flavourings, no coffee in food, I have to have my own mugs for tea only cos I can't deal with traces of coffee!
6:43 am
gortmold

yes, wolv, for something that had popped out of a rodent's rump, it tasted pretty good
6:44 am
gortmold

but for coffee, it was average
6:44 am
Wolvie

wow. If ever we meet, I will remember that so as not to poison you. :-)
6:44 am

bus stop shuffle complete. now, the eternal conundrum - only got 4 hours of sleep last night -- go back to bed now, and be sure of sleeping more, but getting not a lot done, or get stuff done now, but risk not getting nap later? have to drive in to boston tonight, and should be out past my bedtime...
6:47 am
Atalante

it depends. I have a bag of bog-standard PG Tips that I love, but otherwise, I'll try to use strainers for loose leaf
6:48 am
Atalante

always nap now!

6:48 am
gortmold

i learned today in a crossword that top quality tea is called pekoe, did everyone else know that?
6:49 am
Atalante

orange pekoe is loooovely tea
6:49 am
gortmold

have to agree with you there ata, that's the one tea that will drag me away from coffee
6:49 am

Sunday was horrid: DH's 84 yr/old Aunty (who lives alone and his his only relative around) fell and broke both wrists. Clean breaks, they splinted her, kept her overnight and sent her out of hospital; so she's here with us now. Another friend passed 1 kidney stone, was sent home to pass another. And another friend ended up also in hospital overnight for stroke symptoms. There was losts mere, but for 3 people who are close to you all spending Sun. night in hospital; it's pretty weird!
8:12 am
herinfernallady

not good :(
8:14 am
Nef

and they all got out yesterday! I am so angry at out *healthCARE* system to kick an independant 84 y/o out of the hospital without any resources, rehab, or teaching
8:16 am
herinfernallady

Yes well health care that seems like a joke. I know that its not the hospitals fault. You are patched up off you go due to lack of resources and such its not right
8:17 am
Nef

I refused to take her until the doctor ordered at least ONE session of OT while she was there. I was told that "there is no *medical* reason to keep her in over24 hours; and she needed to be in the hospital 3 nights with a *medical* reason for Medicare or her insurance to approve skilled care or a rehab facility.
8:18 am
herinfernallady

Go Nef
8:18 am
Nef

We would have to pay $5000 straight up front before they would even consider placing her in a rehab unit! AND we would have to pay for all of her cares out-of-pocket too!
8:21 am
herinfernallady

wow
8:22 am
herinfernallady

that is insane
8:22 am
Nef

When the wet-behind-the-ears doc told me he was ordering OT to call today (Tuesday) "to set up some OT at home;" I looked at him and said: " don't you suppose that an 84 y/o woman just *might* need to go to the bathroom or have a drink of water, or *Something* before your OT calls to "set up" an appointment to teach her how to DO those things?" You could tell the light finally clicked on and he said "OH! I'll have them see her now before she leaves and then they will call tomorrow for more therapy!
8:23 am
Nef

I am totally appalled by his stupidity!
8:24 am

What a dick

8:30 am

sorry for taking up the chog; but I hope some other people read this and realize how messed up our system is. So here I'll be working overtime with Aunty and DH struggling at home alone. He is still having problems with his head injury last month and will see Neuro again Thursday. Both of our kids work full time plus; and there isn't any other family around. I did get the MD to order transportation to and from doctor appts. too because DH doesn't drive and I can't cancel the clinics. DH has 3 appts. this next week (which friends and family will help with; but Aunty now has 5 different appts. for the next 2 weeks and I can't get them all covered too.

Nef

I don't have any ep's yet
10:09 am
Haz1558

ep7/40 - relating to plants that grow near the ground, ep7/44 has the frozen water ending (mixed up)
10:09 am
harpjane

actually, i don't mind being greedy....it works out well for me!
10:10 am

Or ep7 - e plus a porcine, last letters of Mr Connery's name

10:17 am

oe8?
10:18 am
Haz1558

oe8 - relating to a complex involving illicit love.
10:18 am
Nef

oe 8 is a illicit love complex harp
10:18 am

another pair of great clues, thanks again
10:19 am

these clues are so erudite I am lost!
10:21 am
jmcnrick

that's okay I just started so will plug away
10:21 am
jmcnrick

I should note that two studies just came out which should that it pays to be an optomist
10:21 am

hi jmc, think of the greek guy who loved his mum wrongly...
10:22 am

ah great, so we are scientifically backed up now?
10:22 am

thats sprite i will work on it
10:22 am
jmcnrick

er thanks
10:23 am

lol, no it wasn't me it wasn't me!
10:23 am

yes one study showed that optomists lived longer and better
10:23 am
Nef

pedi
10:23 am
Nef

oops1 Sorry
10:23 am
jmcnrick

the other study showed that optimists do better at investments
10:24 am
jmcnrick

no fault no foul nef
10:24 am
sprite

always a good thing to know. But will stay away from investments anyway.
10:25 am
Nef

really jmc? I feel I'm very much an optimist; but when it comes to investments, I'm very conservative
10:25 am
Nef

LOL! Maybe us optimists don't dally in high risk investments then!
10:26 am
jmcnrick

well I notice among my tax clients the pessimists all dumped their stock in the middle of the crisis and the optimists hung on and were much better off for it
10:28 am
Haz1558

There's the optimist who hangs on in a crisis hoping that things will get better and there's the foolish optimist who thinks that get rich quick schemes work. Optimism balanced with some common sense is possibly the best option.
10:29 am
jmcnrick

I don't think being delusional is the same as being an optimist! lol
10:29 am
sprite

that is a fact, jmc. People who dared and could hang on, made less loss. But to me investmenst are a bit scary. It feels like gambling to me, and I am never lucky in gambles.
10:29 am
Haz1558

And I was being so tactful!
10:30 am
sprite

lol
10:30 am
jmcnrick

it really isn't the same as gambling
10:30 am
jmcnrick

it is more like lending your money to someone
10:30 am
jmcnrick

I am rarely accused of being tactful I am afraid
10:30 am
sprite

but without any certainty they will pay you back?
10:31 am
jmcnrick

yes with varying degrees of certainty
10:31 am

so like lending money to your son! lol

10:33 am

so far my son has been as honest as they come, but he is only 13. Still, I am very optimistic about him.
10:33 am

i treat investment capital like money used for gambling,or lending to family,if you can set fire to it right then and go "oh well" then you can safely invest it
10:34 am

bye Haz, have a nice walk, ho4 the weather there is as good as it is here.

10:37 am

the cheap method is to use 2-liter bottles (clear pop bottles) and put in muck or soil and water and see where the critters end up. generally you see anaerobes at the bottom and aerobes at the top. and the off-gassing gives a clue to how active they are

no, 40's isn't that bad.. but your friend is dating someone young enough to be her son, and that is a bit much for me. (not trying to be judgmental here though, not me)
6:17 pm
72 Temple Owl

well she is childless so i guess she doesn't realize it. his family hates her
6:17 pm
Dorens

i could understand that, i would hate a woman in her 50's dating my 31 year old son. (so would his wife)
6:18 pm
72 Temple Owl

he is a divorced father. they have dated for three years
6:18 pm
Dorens

after my divorce, I was involved for many years with a man 8 years younger than me, and people thought that was somewhat outrageous
6:18 pm
Dorens

6:22 pm
Dorens

no, it's cool, but can understand his family. it is too bad they can't get beyond it and give her a chance, but I'm thinking I couldn't be that open-minded if it were my son.

Haven't checked the themes in a while.
8:17 pm
Jacula

Or even your favourite poem. LOL
8:18 pm
jillibus

No, jac, just "Poets"
8:18 pm
Jacula

I wonder what a 'favourtie' is? Is it a tie you wear when you want good look or one that was lent to you when you really needed one?
8:19 pm
Jacula

Ha! That's funny, jilli. As a po4, I missed the theme.
8:20 pm
Jacula

That must be pe6.24 justice for me not writing any rhyming stuff for a very long time.

8:24 pm
jillibus

jac, I have a friend who knows how to fix .gifs -- says each section has to be resized and then put back together -- he will do it for you if you contact (seriously!!!) f***off@fmail.co.uk and replace the *s with the appropriate letters
8:24 pm
redturtlehead

Ahhhh, will have to look about.
8:24 pm
Jacula

8:26 pm
Jacula

It was a bit tough, red.
8:26 pm
Jacula

I listed with 35 left, not something I normally do.
8:28 pm
Jacula

It's normally a matter of grit nd personal pride not to list unless I really have to, but, like I said, I had a busy day in front of me and knew I'd have no time later to do anything other than relax.
8:29 pm
Jacula

*not personal pride
