If she had the vaccine then this wi4 be a very mild illness. If not, it could be worse. Levi, at 5 mo, may or may not have remaining antibodies from mama.

8:21 am

we have a tradition (from Puerto Rico) that children leave grass out on Jan. 5 for the camels of the 3 Kings - I used to use plastic Easter basket grass!!!
8:21 am

i love the sound of timothy... didn't peter rabbit like that?
8:22 am

I am going to make 2 large pans of the lasagne! Spinach, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms

I would have bought the real thing if I had only known
8:22 am

timothy? in Peter Rabbit? doesn't sound familiar, doren
8:22 am
Dorens

no, i guess not. in my little girl mind they did sort of go together..
8:22 am
Scrabbler

Peter Rabbit stole onions from Mr MacGregor's garden.
8:23 am
Dorens

somehow i knew about timothy and liked it (the idea, not the actual grass)
8:23 am

onions? hmmm.. i'll have to check my peter rabbit...
8:24 am

I used to know exactly on which shelf to find it - unfortunately after moving/packing/unpacking, etc. I no longer have instant book-locator ability

scrabbler, I've done that, try to read the Italian first, see how much I can understand, then read the english, go back and forth, it works!
8:31 am
JBV

yes, her artwork is beautiful! squirrel nutkin was one of my favorites
8:32 am

I have many of her drawings framed and on walls in that room, along with a poster of Miss Potter herself, with a brief biography.

More coffee for anyone? I am going into the kitchen.
8:32 am
Dorens

i'm not surprised scrabbler.. i do love her pictures... looking at the pages from the website jbv posted... i get lost in them
8:33 am
Scrabbler

May I be president of that club, JBV? In the past I had real bunnies named Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. I miss them. Now I have Miss Bea (Beatrix Potter).
8:33 am

should i add sundried tomatoes?
9:16 am

i'll share scrabs... would like one pancake for dessert

I just had some homemade potato latkas for breakfast...so I'm full
9:16 am

add the tomato - it'll look festive
9:16 am
PinnyPoppins

a festive frittata
9:17 am
hego

Yum latkes
9:17 am
Dorens

that's what i thought pini... plus i love the flavor... but never have added them to omelets or frittatas before
9:17 am
Scrabbler

I bought a box of generic pancake mix at Aldi's and these are the best pancakes ever! Fluffy, delicious!
9:17 am
Dorens

i love latkes, but never had them for breakfast
9:17 am

sounds delicious, doren - enjoy

More work than I expected, but good
9:18 am
Dorens

i just heard a tip scrabbler, to add a tiny bit of vanilla extract to pancake batter..have you ever done that?
9:18 am
PinnyPoppins

i love latkes too, but aren't you about a week late for that treat...?
9:18 am
Dorens

latkes are always good... problem is that i can't stop eating them!!
9:18 am
Scrabbler

I started using vanilla soymilk, Doren. Maybe that is the secret.
9:18 am
sukee

I heard that if you add lemon juice to pancake batter it makes them fluffier
9:18 am
hego

never too late for latkes
9:18 am
Dorens

sounds about right
9:19 am
sukee

I can eat latkes any time :)
9:19 am
Dorens

oh lemon juice? that's a new one... don't know if i'd have the nerve to try it though
9:19 am
Scrabbler

"smore" is not accepted! Blasphemy!
9:19 am
Dorens

i used to eat latkes any time... back when i wasn't 30 pounds overweight
9:19 am
PinnyPoppins

it's just amusingly subversive to start christmas day with a chanukah food

I haven't tried it myself but had pancakes made with it last week

Have a wonderful holiday in whatever you do, everyone. I am snowbound at my daughter's house and we're hoping to use the Jeep to get my son's family picked up for dinner ... but the drifts are 3 foot deep in places between here and there.
10:08 am
Aloyisius

hi ruru
10:08 am
Merk

me 8 starts with the first 3 letters of the me 4,5 below it.
10:09 am
Merk

Then add the same vowel to those three letters.
10:09 am
Merk

End with two very common alternate spellings of words commonly seen here.
10:09 am
Aloyisius

ooh, good luck, Merk.. hope everyone can gather for dinner; hope the snow crews clear the roads for you
10:09 am
Merk

There are two me 8 words.
10:10 am

No, snow crews are doing all they can do to keep emergency routes to hospitals open. We both live on very secondary residential streets.

10:16 am

I think quitting cigarettes would be easier than babble
11:23 am
Dorens

nope. i've done both. quitting cigarettes is harrrrd
11:24 am

interestingly enough a heroin addict that my husband was representing said it was easier to git up heroin than cigarettes
11:24 am
rururocks

plus those little green and yellow patches for your arm are ugly
11:24 am

I could use a sw5 of something....
11:24 am
Dorens

i have a close friend who gave up both. he found heroin much much harder
11:25 am
Dorens

took him years... went to more detoxes and rehabs than you could imagine. when he finally decided to quit cigarettes... two years after he finally conquered dope.... he found it so simple
11:25 am
rururocks

heroin is a horrible drug
11:25 am
jmcnrick

interesting dorens -- i am just passing on what this guy said to me
11:26 am
Book Doctor Gwen

no drug (or puter game) affects two people the same way. and no drug is universally addictive
11:26 am
Dorens

no, i have heard it many times also... but watching him go through what he did, i see that heroin was impossible. cigarettes are hard to quit, but no comparison
11:26 am
jmcnrick

if heroin is not universally additive it comes pretty close
11:26 am
lynxxx

I have just given up cigs after 43 years - pretty easy actually
11:26 am

my friend is a disabled vet and he is on medicianl heroin for pain. of course they don't call it heroin when it's from a doctor but it's still heroin

11:27 am

(grateful that lynxxx will now be around longer)
11:27 am
Book Doctor Gwen

the difference between heroin and methodone is that one is a felony and the other is legal. it's the same drug
11:27 am
Dorens

if you do heroin enough times, i think it is eventually addictive... maybe not immediate
11:28 am
jmcnrick

my daddy gave up cigarettes after many decades almost over night and so gave me a unrealistic expectation for my poor hubby

is mosies not the 3rd person singular of mosy? or am i spelling the word wrong?

11:45 am
dcseain

ah, ok, ty dorns
11:45 am
dcseain

ah, ok, ty dorens
11:45 am

because it was based on a pagan holiday -- quakers didn't even use the names of the months or days of the week because of that -- used First Day for Sunday and First Month for January
11:45 am

if you try to add it, the message is that moseys doesn't exist in the puzzle... ergo it does exist somewhere

not sure the distinction, doren -- we got the whole kit -- guitar, mike and drums, with the basic set of songs (I think)
3:07 pm

called beatles rockband, but it seems like guitar hero... and so i figured since they have guitar hero, they don't need the extra sstuff. i once played guitar hero with them and it was hilarious
3:08 pm
Dorens

but the beatles.... i heard good things about this one, and i'm of that era.. so of course i think it must be the best
3:08 pm
