Stidmama I apologize for my original outburst. Frank was so insistent while we were chatting that the news be kept private I had assumed he would have requested that in his emails. I didn't know he hadn't mentioned it. So I was surprised to see it being discussed.

12:52 am
J. C.

We were both online with Frank as he wrote and sent that email and he made it sound as though he wanted it kept private until he could get in here to share the news himself - saying that's why he wanted to email a select few privately.
12:52 am

hi can someone tell me what took out nancy boy. I enjoyed his chat a lot.
1:08 am
jillibus

chic, there's an explanation in BabAnon.
1:08 am
J. C.

Liver failure due to Malaria Falciparum as the result of a mosquito bite during his visit in the ROK this past August. Then following his transplant surgery, a viral infection that led to pneumonia - coupled with his body rejecting the new liver. :(
1:08 am
J. C.

I posted an explanation in the chog earlier, which I think has been posted on BabbleAnon?
1:08 am
chic

thanks, JC
1:09 am
J. C.

You're welcome, chic.
1:09 am
Soodlebum

I opened Frank's email yesterday morning. It was heartbreakingly sad. I read it, re-read it and read it a third time. There was no mention that this was to be kept quiet. I immediately logged onto Babble, seeking comfort/support. I was told to 'Keep my gob shut', and told not to be inconsiderate. JC I am glad that you are now aware that Frank did not ask that this be kept a secret.
1:11 am
joey

Ican not post to the site in bab anon, but I wish to add my hugs to all NB's friends. I know that I always read his posts with baited breath because I never knew what bad was going on in his life. For being so young, he had a rough time of it. My heart's best wishes go out to his spirit and all his friends.
1:11 am
jillibus

Oh, there was rejecton of the new liver too? Even more tragedy.
1:11 am
J. C.

Yes, because you should've respected that it was sent to you in a private email. Which incidentally I happened to make possible by against what should've been my better judgment, giving Frank your name and email address and suggesting he include you as a recipient - which he was quite hesitant to do at first. It's his place to tell, not anyone else's. He also told Laura and myself as we were in a chat with him at the time he wrote and sent it, that he didn't want it broadcast in here, which is why he preferred to email privately. He probably assumed he would be given enough respect to allow him to share the news himself - when he saw fit to.
1:11 am
J. C.

Yes, Jill.
1:13 am
jillibus

Sorry I'm being so silent, but this is all very depressing.
1:13 am
herinfernallady

ANd once again this is why I hate babble. Lets argue about someone passing. FFS. Grow a pair and Grow up. I see nothing mentioned in the chat. I have requested time and time again is everything ok no personal information needed. You know what this has compelled me once again to give up the chat. I miss NB. His strength reminded me of a dear and departed friend. Goodluck and goodbye
1:13 am
J. C.

You should indeed do that, yes. Quite.
1:14 am
Fauxmage

Frank is completely overwhelmed and distraught. If he failed to ask that what was communicated in private emails it was probably an oversight. He did indeed want to be the one to break the news.
1:14 am
J. C.

Yes, Laura - quite. :(
1:16 am
Fauxmage

Not trying to argue though. Just explain.
1:16 am
J. C.

Yes, of course.
1:21 am
jillibus

It was kind of Frank to send that email.
1:22 am
J. C.

Yes.
1:24 am
Fauxmage

It wasn't easy either Jill. He's had so many people to tell.
1:25 am
jillibus

It must stab him again every time.
1:26 am
Fauxmage

Yes it must. :(
1:27 am
Nef

You know what? I have known and chatted with NB almost since the day he joined Babble. However, *I* did not belong to the group that chatted in IM or wherever. I feel very hurt and shunned by the way that this was initially brought into chat with you, J.C. (whom I've never had a problem with before telling Soodle to shut up.
1:28 am
Fauxmage

It wasn't meant to hurt or shun Nef. Frank wanted to be the one to break the news. He needed time to get through it all.
1:29 am
Nef

Those are my feelings. I can't help it. I feel like I've lost a friend and almost a son
1:29 am
Fauxmage

And Jesse had his own reasons for wanting this kept private while he was going through it. It had nothing to do with being a member of a privileged group.
1:30 am
rururocks

let it go Nef.. people don't know what right and what to say.. it's difficult for everyone
1:30 am
Fauxmage

I'm sorry Nef.
1:31 am
Fauxmage

He felt very much like a little brother to me.
1:31 am
Nef

I'm not saying he didn't, Faux. I've had a few burdens myself this year (we all do at some time or another). We are all hurting at the loss of a special person. It was the initial remarks in chog that were so upsetting to me...

And you are right ruru; I'll try to let it go. You, NB and I have had some heavy discussions in chog through the years about family. This is a toughy for everyone.
1:35 am
Fauxmage

Okay. I just know that Jesse didn't like people worrying about him. He was one of those people who puts a smile on his face to hide what's going on.
1:36 am
Nef

I was disowned at age 16, Faux. He often talked to me about family stuff. I kept telling him that some people are just broken and we just can't change them; but we should never let them hurt us

I guess that's a common thread between us then Nef. I was rejected by my Mom.
1:42 am
J. C.

What on earth ARE you talking about, Nef? Good grief! No one was setting out to hurt anyone and that is a most unfair accusation! Some people naturally click and become friends and some don't. Those who did with us, became a natural part of our personal network - end of story. We are as entitled to do that as you or anyone. Did you want to be? You didn't seem to - and if so, I was certainly very unaware of such. So please do not make such unfounded assumptions and accusations of people who have done nothingn to you. :( All too much of that on here, sadly...

done with this grid.
1:47 am
Nef

J.C, it was very rude of you to tell Soodle off in chog. She didn't deserve your dressing down of her (telling her to shut up, etc. THAT is what I found offensive. Her mentioning the email sent by Frank would have gone over many people's heads because many didn't know that Frank's last name. Heck, even my husband is a Frank!
1:48 am

1:48 am
Nef

Good night ruru. Sorry.
1:51 am
J. C.

Nef - there is much concerning her and things she has done off of here that you are very unware of. Suffice it to say, she had that coming. She should've respected that Frank should be given the right to be the one to share the news on here - and that he sent that to her in a private email for exactly that reason. It's common courtesty and respect to allow him that. She merely wanted to be the one to tell everyone. After some things she has done I have quite good insight, and she had no communication with Jesse for many months, incidentally.
1:53 am
Nef

J.C., I never would have known about the email if you wouldn't have blown up at her. Her initial comments were vague
1:54 am
Nef

I first read about NB's passing here in a comment by stidgmere.
1:55 am
J. C.

No, Nef. Not true at all - she specifically mentioned a very upsetting eail and named the sender, FYI or to jog your memory...
1:55 am
J. C.

That may well be - but at the time, how was I to know who might see what she had thoughtlessly posted in here? Frank did not want any of this - he made that clear to Laura and myself.
1:55 am
Fauxmage

Well we were under the very strong impression from Frank that he wanted to be the one to break the news to Babble in public. We were not aware of what he wrote in these few emails. We thought he would make that very clear. Apparently through some oversight he did not.

So we were concerned that rumors would start to fly if any mention was made in public. We were just trying to respect what we were sure were Frank's wishes.

1:57 am
Nef

J.C. I DID re-read the beginning of this just a few minutes ago. So? A number of people say things here and mention names. It doesn't mean anything to others who don't know them IRL
1:58 am
Fauxmage

Regardless of what Frank neglected to mention, what is communicated privately by email should remain private I feel.

And yes, we had no idea of what else might be said, had we not said something to put a stop to further indiscretion.
1:59 am
J. C.

Oh good grief. Everyone knew who Jesse's partner was and that he had been ill. So yes, Mary mentioning a very upsetting email sent by him was tantamount to telling everyone.
1:59 am
J. C.

Quite, Laura - as anyone should understand.
1:59 am
Nef

I am so tired right now I can't talk straight. I was expressing MY feelings about HOW NB's passing brought on a nasty comment
2:00 am

I'll shut up now. Good night

broll

Excuse me for butting in. I did not know Nancy Boy as I am usually on at a different time. I do regret his passing. However, I have to say that if I had known him, and received an e-mail notifying me of his death with no wishes that it be kept secret, I might easily interpret that e-mail as a wish that others would be notified, as obviously those who put it in the chat did.

I have been sitting here reading all of this and I have to agree with broll....A common way of dealing with grief is to share your feelings with friends. Why don't you all show some respect here for NB and Frank and just stop

2:10 am

Don't know Broll. All I know is that Frank didn't want the news to leak out like this, as gossip and speculation. I don't know why he omitted asking people to keep it to themselves for now. Knowing his feelings on the issue caused a bit of upset when we saw it being brought up.
2:11 am

broll

Understandable. But there are two sides to every story (or e-mail). Perhaps if the circumstances had been more fully explained at the announcement, as you later did, there would have been no rumors and speculation, and people could express their condolences and move on, without accusations and hurt feelings.
2:17 am
J. C.

The fact that it was sent in a private email should've actually sufficed - what is said privately isn't usually to be shared publicly. Frank deserved to be given the space to do it himself as he saw fit. We are very concerned for him as he's going through a terrible time of it right now. Frank wanted to avoid the horrible rumours that some have started about Jesse on here, sadly. Does anyone even consider how we are feeling - just over a fortnight since Jesse's passing? What you aren't privy to and don't have any idea of, please don't make assumptions about - there's more to things than some of you are aware.
2:18 am
BryanC

I agree with broll and saphyre.
2:18 am
J. C.

Yes, broll. But we were of the understanding that Frank had asked that - as he made it clear to us those were his wishes. He is very upset and not mentioning it was probably an oversight. He isn't eating, isn't sleeping and missed that somehow.
2:18 am
Soodlebum

I find this bickering distastful, and frankly disrespectful to a person I was very fond of. However I cannot let JC's comment at 1.51am go. JC, if you have a problem with me - this is not the forum. You have my email address. I have no intention to descending into any sort of argument here.
2:19 am
BabbleRabble

So attempting to ostracize people for what they did not know accomplishes what?
2:20 am

I never saw any "horrible rumours" about dear Jesse. Everyone loved him.
2:20 am

Hmmm. I haven't seen anyone attempting to ostracise anyone for what they didn't know. That's bizarre...
2:20 am
BabbleRabble

You haven't?
2:20 am

This is just horrible and I think you all really need to take a deep look at what you are doing here.
2:21 am

Well sadly, both Jesse and Frank DID, Jill.
2:21 am
J. C.

And I can't describe how upset I was to hear about what some of them said about him!
2:21 am
BabbleRabble

You, JC, really had a lot of gall after the way you treated Andree to be pointing fingers at anyone.
2:22 am
J. C.

I think you would be best to realise there is much you aren't aware of, saphyre - so you don't speak out of turn.
2:22 am

J. C.

Ah. I wasn't the one who identified her, BabbleRabble. The one accusing me of 'attacking' her when the blog was about a very real issue and not about her personally (it could've been anyone, who didn't matter) was the very person who did that herself! Ironically...
2:22 am
saphyre

JC I have just as much right to speak here as the next person whether you like it or not
2:23 am
Rachway

I am not fully aware of what has or hasn't happened but you are all going round in circles now, an unfortunate mistake has been made it seems and it doesn't sound as if it was done maliciously so please could you all stop the postings on here and take it somewhere else if possible. This has always been a happy friendly site so I thought. My sympathies to the person/people who have lost a loved one. Sorry but I felt I needed to say something :(
2:23 am
J. C.

Ah. I'm doing no such thing. People do read much into things that isn't there - assuming negativity that isn't present due to a lack of tone of voice and being able to observe the 'speaker'.
2:23 am
BabbleRabble

You have no claim to any high moral ground, JC. NONE
2:23 am
J. C.

I am not claiming any. Again, most peculiar...

JC --- I can't believe how badly you're behaving to people; perha[s the person who passed on the news thought he/she had been emailed so that the newes could be passed to the pther babblers. Stop beating-up on people; what's done can't be undone, so let it go. It's unseemly to bicker over the young man's death, and
2:37 am
Fauxmage

Well really, I think we have had enough criticism of JC here. If you don't like bickering don't engage in it. One person after another has come on here to bicker about all the bickering and bait JC. If you don't want to see it don't post it. Have the respect for Jesse you wrongly claim JC doesn't have, and just stop. :(

the worst we've had here was a couple of years ago when it seemed to be raining brown slugs, 1000' s of them in the garden

Where did they go? I find them half-way up the walls here sometimes, arguing with the snails doing the same.

Goodness - what are half way up the walls scouser - obviously I have missed much of the chat.
3:22 am
Christine

Judith, that luoung man, NB, died, and there was a big kerfuffle about whether it should;ve been mentioned in the chat. What a horrible couple of hours, most undignified.
3:22 am
rubyfoo

we have a lot of snails, but they're very pretty (yellow ones) and many lizards. I would be afraid that that much salt might have a bad effect on the garden
3:22 am

slugs, jhb

how is fixing the water damage going, lyn? And has the water level abated now?
4:57 am
lynxxx

Fixing hasn't really started - not surprisingly most trades are 'swamped' with work at the moment - there has been a lot of damage. Locally the water started going down when the rain stopped and the tide went down - the canal near here is a natural creek which ends in the Bay as well as the main outlet for stormwater drains for surrounding suburbs
4:59 am
sprite

am glad the water has started to down. I hope you are not uncomfortable until the damage is fixed? I can imagine you will have to wait, must be very long waiting lists right now.
5:02 am
lynxxx

my damage is minimal really, only issue is if any heavy rain starts as it would cause further damage to ceilings. We took up the wet carpet in Jessies room (which we had planned on doing in the future anyway) as we had already sanded and polished the floor there when we first moved in
5:04 am

Thanks, sprite. Very well with the shop. We are mostly done with the shop side and my husband is working from there now. The apartment end (where we plan to live once our house in town sells) is put on hold until mo4/5 money is available. I am *learning* to exercise patience!
6:11 am

Wouldn't be for me, anyway. I think you are he6 for building yourselves. Hope you will share more pics, especially when it will finally be done and you will live and work there happily every after.

Thank you very much, sprite. I enjoyed the info you posted re: Mia Farrow. I did not realize she was so accomplished---especially in her humanitarian services. Makes me like her that much mo4/5. My all-time favorite movie of hers is "Widow's Peak".

luxembourg is even smaller than the netherlands. Hard to imagine such a small country when you live in the US, grin.

I read a Dean Koontz book once and it gave me the creeps and a night of bad dreams. Stephen King books just scare the crap outta me
6:53 am
ChampFit

Dean Koontz has two publishers, and one isn't scary. Some of his are awful scary though...totally agree!
6:54 am

some of King's books just give me a bad feeling. Others are simply brilliant.
I love almost everything Koontz wrote. His psychology is so good.

And I really like the Dark Tower series, very different from most of the rest of his work.
6:57 am

King I feel rushes the endings
6:58 am

Koontz takes time to draw you in then tie you up, then leaves you sitting there sweating
6:58 am
suefrad625

I love Whispers
6:59 am
sprite

yes, the Dark Tower series is something special, I agree. Also agree on what you say, sue, about King rushing the endings.
May sound stupid, but with Koontz I often feel his heart is into his writing. With King it is (to me) mostly just his mind.

7:22 am
herinfernallady

Ruby can you bring him food?
7:22 am
sprite

it is a lot to worry about, rubyfoo. I think they will let him go ho4 as soon as they think it is safe to do so. If he really starts perishing because he refuses to eat, they might be able to give him sustenance in another way.
7:22 am
rubyfoo

I bring him food, but once they put it in the fridge for the next meal, he stubbornly won't ask for it.
7:23 am
rubyfoo

I think he'd be better off here with me, his pups, his TV, etc. I also think he needs a different antibiotic
7:23 am
rubyfoo

his doctor will come and see him and I will arrange for the visiting nurse to come
7:24 am

Molly, maybe it isn't so much changing the feeling of sadness for that of gratitude, as accepting that both feelings are part of mourning? It is that way for me, anyway.

You've got that exactly right FM... when first you have to sort of boil off the liquid it creates, before you can crisp it,... it's not dry cured... done in a brine with artificial flavours, etc.

When my nephew died there was a terrific outpouring from on online computer community whose code he had designed. They had no idea that he was a 15 year old kid till his father got on and told them. Their expressions of grief meant a lot to the family.

10:53 am
Dorens

y'know, i did read back in the chog at all the heated invective and nastiness. All I can think of though, is that Nancyboy was greatly loved and a real part of this community, and we should be able to relay the news and grieve for him and do whatever we want in our own way. there was no disrespect to frank. and as far as i know, frank has never been a part of the chog, so why would it be for him to tell us? Am I missing something here?
10:53 am

I am really annoyed- I liked it when I believed it was enchilada. Now, not so much.

Dorens

jc has often been prickly. apparently he chastized soodle (shut your GOB) for mentioning that she'd had a sad message from Frank. then it got worse. it was all about respect and this was Frank's decision, and should have been him to tell us. Seems he emailed a few folks, and now JC and his buddy faux are furious that the news was let out. Well, I think it is fine for babblers to share the sad news with each other. this is OUR chat log, yes???

Fauxmage

Soodlebum, everyone else who received that same email as you was able to be discreet. You received that email precisely because JC suggested to Frank that you be included. I am sorry for the tone in which you were spoken to, but knowing that Frank wanted it to be kept private, not knowing that he failed to mention this, and seeing it appear in public was disturbing. Everyone else had the good grace to keep it to themselves.

And as far as what Jesse would have thought of "someone's" judgmental behavior, he would have been behind it 100%. You people have no clue what that someone meant to Jesse, no clue about the many things he did for Jesse, that Jesse and Frank both felt eternally grateful for. Jesse and Frank were engaged because of that someone, and that someone was to be Jesse's best man at the wedding, a wedding that now will sadly never take place.

I rarely chat here, but I was here while all the unpleasantness was taking place, and I can now see why Jesse himself detested some of you, and called you "the coven". Have no doubt that Jesse would have stood by "someone" 100%.

Faux, to balance what you said, Jesse had great affection for many people here, as they did for him. I think it's sad enough that we have all lost such a precious one. Sniping at people about "who knows" and "who doesn't know" just doesn't seem to matter in the long run. My condolences to all those who knew Jesse in person and are feeling this loss so deeply.

5:21 pm

5:21 pm

5:21 pm
MollyL

Oh wow! What a Mom!
5:21 pm
Mom

I would like to try and make donuts
5:22 pm
Mom

she is a keeper, such a sweetheart
5:22 pm
blueheron

They're not that hard to do Mom.
5:23 pm
Mom

I have a recipe, I just need to get the nerve
5:24 pm
blueheron

Unless you have a problem smelling grease in your house (like me). I worked in alot of restaurants where the venting was not so good.
5:25 pm
Mom

oh I would do it outside under the porch
5:25 pm
MollyL

Mom, this is going to sound gross, but I have heard the secret to good donuts is frying them in ...lard.
5:25 pm
blueheron

I am a chef by trade, but tend to work in places that don;t have fried food.
5:25 pm
Mom

oh that doesn't sound gross at all. We can buy lard here in the grocery store
5:26 pm
blueheron

We have lard here too.
5:27 pm
Mom

my recipe calls for a shortening/oil combination
5:28 pm
blueheron

why not everyone? Everything we eat, except fresh products have something in them that is nasty.
5:28 pm
blueheron

shortening/oil sounds good
5:29 pm
blueheron

be careful though, don;t overheat.
5:30 pm
welki

done. anyone need a clue or two before i skedaddle?

Nef

Hello Fellow Babblers. How are you all this evening?
5:53 pm
uusue2

crappy (dad trouble...)
5:53 pm
Nef

what's the matter, uususe?
5:55 pm
uusue2

Oh, my dad broke his leg a few weeks ago, had surgery, and is now in rehab. Was looking forward to going home but his wife decided she can't live on her own any more and wants to go into assisted living near her children (hundreds of miles from where they live now). He doesn't want to, they argued, and now she says she's leaving him. I'm going out there end of next week, when he's supposed to be released, now to an empty house???
5:56 pm
uusue2

So it's upsetting. BTW, he's 89 and she's 85. And I'm over a thousand miles away.
5:56 pm
Nef

and how long has he been married to this woman?
5:57 pm
uusue2

35 years.
5:57 pm
uusue2

(My mom died young)
5:58 pm
Nef

well, she sure sounds like a *real* jewel! <heavy sarcasm there!>
5:58 pm
Nef

Unless there is more to the story than you are aware of
5:58 pm
uusue2

I think she's acting in haste - she's scared, can't really live on her own, is afraid he can't care for her, and she certainly can't care for him.
5:58 pm
redturtlehead

Hello all
5:59 pm
uusue2

It's really sad, because they had many happy years together; I think neither one of them is thinking straight. But her son is driving out this weekend, presumably to take her home with him. (And he's a psychotherapist - shouldn't he know better???)
6:00 pm
Nef

so she's been living alone while he's in rehab, right? Do you think that she suddenly realized how much she depended on him for daily necessitites?
6:00 pm
Nef

Hi red!
6:00 pm
Nef

And Congrats on doing your marathon!
6:00 pm
uusue2

He certainly can be a difficult person, and it may very well be that assisted living is appropriate for them at this point in their lives. But they need to talk about it and be reasonable! And yes, I think she did realize this, and that's what 's scaring her.
6:00 pm
uusue2

Hi, red - sorry you stepped into my misery....
6:00 pm
redturtlehead

hi nef.
6:01 pm
redturtlehead

and uusue, sorry you are having Dad troubles.
6:01 pm
uusue2

And you did a marathon, red! Wow! Congratulations!!
6:01 pm
redturtlehead

I finished. But it was not a very well executed race.
6:02 pm
redturtlehead

but thanks!
6:02 pm
Nef

okay, I won't be so hard on her then. I take back my sarcasm. I remember how overwhelmed I was when my hubby came home in a wheelchair and we didn't have a ramp last summer....
6:03 pm
Nef

Red, the fact is that you stuck withit and finished! THAT in itself is an accomplishment
6:03 pm
uusue2

Yes, I understand both their issues; it's just not the time to be making life-changing decisions. He needs to get home and get himself re-established.
6:03 pm
redturtlehead

I will admit, I have never been more motivated since I finished.
6:03 pm
MollyL

Sue, I'm sorry to hear about your Dad and his wife. They are both dealing with health issues and maybe she feels like assisted living would be of some help to both of them. However, declaring that is the way it is, is a far cry from discussing it and agreeing on it together.
6:03 pm
redturtlehead

Parent stuff is scary, my parents are going to soon be there...
6:03 pm
uusue2

Not well executed - how so? I did many shorter races when I was younger - did they not have good support?
6:04 pm
uusue2

Thanks, Molly, it really is frustrating, especially as I am not nearby.
6:04 pm
redturtlehead

Oh no, uu, the race was great, I had some training issues and then found that I was mentally unprepared for the last 3-5 miles. So I did not execute the race well, thats all.
6:05 pm
Nef

is there any other family living near them uusue?
6:05 pm
MollyL

It's hard to be long distance when family members need you to lean on. I hope this all works out for the best Sue.
6:06 pm
redturtlehead

it is hard. I think it is unfortunatet that something like home health couldnt be used to help while they make a joint decision.
6:06 pm
uusue2

Ah, that I can understand, red! I did a 25-k race once, that was my longest; longer would have been tough.
6:06 pm

not a word, sue. Try harder next time! ;-)
6:07 pm
uusue2

nef, no one else is nearby. They're in NJ, my stepbrothers are both in MI, and I'm in IL. So lots of distance. I assume they (or he, now) are planning on having some help come in. I just don't see the rush.
6:08 pm
redturtlehead

Well, I am def more motivated now and I have a better understanding of how to put it together. thanks uusue.
6:09 pm
uusue2

Good for you, red! You go!!! I was training for a marathon when I did the 25k, and let it derail me, essentially permanently. Glad to hear you are motivated to do more.
6:09 pm

6:23 pm

Indeed, BR, I really rather miss you when you are not here, and I sort of worry about you when you are absent from chat, which is lately often.
6:23 pm

we really are one big dysfunctional family ... hard to quit after investing so much time and energy
6:24 pm

But indeed, Welki, I agree about what I just read through. it was a miserable exchange.
6:24 pm

I agree :-) (see below for my whining about someone who is leaving someone else much too hastily, IMHO)
6:24 pm

I was very upset last night and tried to express my feelings about how *I* felt. It seems that people didn't understand what I was saying
6:24 pm

Bon soir Gran Mere. Hello all. I am baking Valentine's treats for my older kids.

6:30 pm

How nice Molly. I'm thinking about potato and ham bake tonight.
6:31 pm

I am trying to be clear what kids at that age can reasonably be expected to "do" as well as what sorts of activities can push their understanding.
6:31 pm

hello all you lovely babblers - long time, no 'see' :)
6:31 pm
uusue2

ah, sounds interesting! I'm teaching force and motion in both my classes now (the non-math general education one plus the calculus-based one for engineers)
6:31 pm
stidmama

although I don't need to write specific lesson plans, am trying to be organized enough that the materials I gather lend themselves to some fairly easy lesson generation.
6:32 pm
uusue2

Lots of hands-on stuff is really good for that age, stidmama, as I am sure you know!

hi peri :)
6:34 pm
stidmama

:-D thanks sue, may I quote you? actually.... my biggest sticking point is: I know that kids at that age are still pretty concrete thinkers. So, I can set up experiments that help them SEE the effects of mass and velocity and such.
6:34 pm
blueheron

Helen, we haven't met yet, so I'm here to say hello.

Sure, stid! They can be kinetic learners, too, so doing something that allows them to experience forces and accelerations is good too.

6:36 pm

AH! good idea. See, the wisdom of the babble community is IMMENSE.
6:38 pm
stidmama

Wondering if it would be more frustrating than useful to start talking about the unseen -- the idea of acceleration is important, not sure how to get the idea separated from velocity though. That's part of my project this evening. I have a stack of books to go through to supplement some of the websites I have been consulting.

i just made the most incredible black bean mushroom chipotle chili. Now, should I have a second bowl or a glass of wine, can't do both
6:39 pm

Stid, every time someone mentions the "unseen", I think of all those icky microbes that live in our pillows that we are supposed to pulverize by putting the pillows in the dryer.
6:39 pm
helenkeller

heya doren!
6:39 pm
uusue2

well, acceleration is the change in velocity, and it takes a force to change your velocity - maybe connecting acceleration with force would help. Some college texts are starting with forces and then doing kinematics later; I would think that could also work with younger kids.
6:39 pm

6:57 pm

(((sue))) have a lovely evening!
6:57 pm
EspritdJean

I'll repeat, for those just coming on. I am a good friend of Jesse's (Nancy Boy).

Jesse wanted to go to Korea last August to see his family. His doctor told him he would not need malaria protection, since he was Korean.

He got bitten by a mosquito there, and got malaria. A particularly difficult strain to treat. It damaged his liver and caused severe weight loss and anemia. He nearly died.

The hospital overdid the blood transfusions, and Jesse had to have chelation to get the excess iron out. This made him violently ill, and further damaged his liver. A transplant was needed.

His partner, Frank, was found to be the same rare blood type, so he donated a portion of his liver.

Unfortunately, the anti-rejection drugs lowered Jesse's immunity to infection, and he caught glandular fever. This became pneumonia. After a few days of being intubated, he died, very quietly, with Frank, his partner, by his side.

He joined maybe 2 yrs ago and then disappeared for a long time, then resurfaced last spring or summer.

A person who lives in this life space touches many. Some personally, some over distance. However, all those they touch deserve to share in the mourning of the loss of that person. I wish everyone who is mourning the loss of our friend Jesse, some peace. He has found it, so should we.
