4:42 am
herinfernallady

Sprite I noticed it
4:42 am

that is what I always do at jobs too. I write it all down, don't have to ask again and can find it back when I need to do it again, even if it is a year later. It is a great way to go.

4:44 am

4:53 am

"neck of the woods" is an American construct. As early as the mid 16th century "neck" was used in reference to a narrow piece of land. (googled it)
4:54 am
herinfernallady

Bah stupid weather. I will be wearing tights tomorrow
4:55 am
sprite

from another site:
Originally the neck of the woods was a narrow strip of woodland connecting a larger area of woodland.
4:56 am
sprite

I think it is the connecting part that is responsible for the use of the word neck.
4:58 am

I bet lyn has telephone or something like that. Or so deep into the grid she did not see the origin of 'neck of the woods'.

Sorry, it is for people in the UK who want to move to Australia, they give the family two weeks in a rented house to see if they really want to move for good, got to find a job, school for children, compare food & utility bills to the UK..then they watcha video of their loved ones they would be leaving behind..the decide if they are going to stay in Australia or not.
5:50 am
herinfernallady

You can't find a job here in 2 weeks that is a burke of an idea
5:51 am
lynxxx

Do most of them decide to move?
5:52 am
zoozzoom

The stupid thing is..if i wanted to move, i would try and find all the information i needed first before going, they don`t they go first..so many say they cannot afford to move..love seeing the homes and things..but such a waste of a program that could of been made a lot better.
5:53 am

Well you have to look at costs. I guess it is ok if you are a backpacker kind of person.

Here's an example from someone calling themselves hanooman:

the movie where a bunch of stuck up British royal people who look like they are constipated, sit around and talk about politics. You can bet your ass the Academy will vote for this movie even if they slept through the whole thing.

7:26 am

Isn't there ANY symbolism in that at all?

Wouldn't work at the university, I think, crossy - we all complain bitterly about meetings while we schedule more and more of them.
8:06 am
crosshair

strange waste of time lol
8:07 am
crosshair

or is it just a weekly validation that everyone is still among the living? hehe
8:07 am
uusue2

indeed. but much of it we do in the name of shared governance; faculty want to be involved in all decisions affecting the university, particularly academic ones (which is understandable). But it leads to a lot of meetings.
8:08 am
crosshair

how this must be fixed,how that must be altered,how this must change,and after all that noise it is brought to the powers that be,they look at it for 2 minutes and say sorry,it is not in the budget for this quarter
8:09 am
crosshair

ahh,spooning the power base around...
8:10 am
uusue2

well, the thing is, there are a lot of things where the faculty do have the final say (or almost), particularly if it doesn't involve money (much of curriculum, for example). So it's periodic reinforcement, which is the best way to guarantee that the behavior being reinforced continues :-)
8:11 am

hehe,i do not miss office politics at all
8:12 am

I agree with Cross. Meetings are usually a waste of time. What takes an hour could be done in 15 minutes.
8:12 am

indeed,it is all checks and balances
8:12 am

lol,most of our meeting we gigantic fillibusters of 3 hours,set for mid day so it destroyed an entire productive work day

and of course all those ideas that look so brilliant on the big notepad on the tripod rarely play out in the field where it matters

oh, that's a little more involved (had one of those about 5 years ago). Will be thinking of you!!!

hmmm silence means consent
8:45 am
uusue2

well, good for you, jmc. No, I wouldn't be; they do it with anesthesia now (assuming it's a regular angiogram) so you sleep through it (I had one without anesthesia back in the 1970s and it was miserable; the most recent one was nothing).

just got called aside so my manager could tell me the company has bumped me up a level in my job title. no word whether that comes with a pay raise, but i find it interesting that the email they send to her basically says that she doesnt need to say anything to me about it. why tell my manager i have been bumped up a level, but not tell ME?

i will. i will not neglect this. I have no use for people who know they have a problem not dealing with it

JMC, I just had to go on blood pressure medication. They have brought it down to normal.
8:57 am
jmcnrick

good for you molly!
8:57 am
uusue2

yeah, I think generics should be fine (I was on lisinopril, which cost me $6 per month; just switched to losartan, which is costing me $10, because it is easier on my voice)
8:58 am
jmcnrick

how so on your voice?
8:59 am
uusue2

the lisinopril can cause a bit of a cough; my throat was damaged during surgery last summer (since healed), and I lecture for a living, so the doc thought the losartan might be better.
9:00 am

bummer on the damage glad it is better

losing weight will help both the blood pressure and the cholesterol, another reason I should do it :-/

Hey all. Back from pediatrician. Better news...not so scary. OK...maybe NOT scarlet fever. Saw our pediatrician this morning. He thinks Dylan has a virus and got the hives as a result. The strep just happens to be secondary. And guess what?!?!? Zack has strep too!!!! Both boys home at least until Wednesday.
11:35 am

I have 2 co7's, but haven't listed yet so not sure what the other one is

Hi Car--scarlet fever is a result of some Strep infections in which the strain of Strep causes the rash. It's easily treated as is

No need for rapid Strep test unless Strep throat is suspected (ST, swollen nodes, fever and no runny nose or cough)

11:42 am

benedryl Q4H for a full day had no effect on the itching and rash yesterday, Scrabs. it seemed worrysome when car.ee wanted to know what else to do. We told her to take him in
11:42 am
Scrabbler

Has he been doing ok at home?
11:42 am
car.eeyore

I took him to the on-call doctor yesterday. Dylan's hives started Friday night, he had been on Benadryl for 24 hours and they weren't any better. He also has a wicked cough, and I was afraid he may not be getting enough air. The nurse looked at Dylan and was shocked by the amount and intensity of the hives. They did a strep test to see if he had strep, although his throat really wasn't looking like it did. Then we saw the Nurse Practitioner who told us his strep was positive and scarlet fever came into the Dx. She was concerned about the extent of the rash and had the doctor come in. The doctor thought it was HSP.
11:43 am
Scrabbler

Car, apply cold compresses or ice packs to rash to alleviate the itching.
11:43 am
car.eeyore

He is doing pretty well. He is a trooper!
11:43 am
uusue2

Yes, very well. The only thing he still needs help with is treating his heel and going up and down stairs (rails aren't good in his house). And he can't drive yet, or carry anything that doesn't fit on the walker tray (so I took out the trash).
11:43 am
car.eeyore

In addition to the Benadryl, herbal rash cream and oatmeal baths, or instead of?
11:44 am
car.eeyore

uusue...I think you have been a tremendous blessing to your Dad this past week! He is making such progress.
11:44 am
Erda

sounds like a heavy case of shingles
11:44 am
Scrabbler

Approx 30% of kids are Strep carriers during the school yr--they are colonized with Strep but not infected. So, if a rapid Strep test is done when there are no signs of Strep throat it will be falsely positive in up to 30% of kids.
11:45 am
Nef

uusue, did your Dad get a sore onhis heel being in the hospital (a pressure sore)?
11:45 am

I agree Sue. I'm sure your Dad is grateful to have you there.

Not if you have no symptoms of Strep throat.

Hi Gwen!

If sore throat, and very red tonsils AND soft palate/uvula, and swollen nodes in neck, and fever--think Strep. Also, Strep is not a respiratory illness so if cold/cough symptoms exist that sore throat is part of the cold.

That would solve everything!!!! If not, talk to the Department that you will be having the tests in. Ask them if they have any secure storage for patients having long testing. There has to be something for their purses and stuff.

i try not to get drunk at lunch but the noodles sound yummy;)
12:21 pm
EvaNadine

heh, not really sure where the name came from, but it is spicy and super-tasty. :)
12:22 pm
EvaNadine

i think supposedly, they are so hot that you will get drunk from the amount of beverage it takes to cool your mouth...
12:23 pm
car.eeyore

Are the noodles soaked in the spices? Maybe that is why they are considered "drunk"?
12:24 pm
EvaNadine

The thai name is Phat Kee Mao.
Kee mao meaning 'shit drunk' in Thai might not be the most poetic name for a noodle dish but once you have tried this, you might be wondering how it got it's perculiar name. Here are a few theories;
1) It is so spicy that one would need to drink non-stop till he or she is 'shit drunk'
2) It can wake up the most 'shit drunk' person.
3) Invented by a 'shit drunk' person who happened to just chuck everything in the wok.
12:25 pm

LOL! Wonderful!

3:21 pm
uusue2

So my dad just got a letter from his wife's lawyer.
3:22 pm

hi Sue
3:22 pm
stidmama

hey lynxxx! how's *tries to count hours ahead and back* Tuesday morning?
3:22 pm
Kaplan the Magne

APA style- yuck
3:22 pm
Michnick

Oh, UU, that is so hard. How is he taking it?
3:22 pm
stidmama

oh boy sue. *worried, sad mama look*
3:22 pm
Kaplan the Magne

It's so restrictive and bossy.
3:22 pm
Michnick

conic
3:22 pm
lynxxx

Yes Tuesday morning
3:22 pm
Michnick

Oooooppps
3:22 pm
lynxxx

Is he OK Sue
3:22 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Byeeee...........
3:22 pm
stidmama

thanks Mich! LOL
3:22 pm
stidmama

bye Kaplan ((hugs))
3:23 pm
uusue2

ok, but he's not happy.
3:23 pm
uusue2

She's going to be filing for divorce. Stupid if you ask me.
3:23 pm
stidmama

*gentle thoughts for sue's dad -- and sue*
3:23 pm
uusue2

grrrrrr.
3:24 pm
uusue2

Called my SO, who has a law degree; as he says it's going to wind up costing a lot more than it needs to.
3:24 pm
Michnick

If anyone had trouble understanding the expression, "kicking a man when he's down"; ask sue & her dad.
3:24 pm
uusue2

No shit.
3:24 pm
cosdem

thats horrible... she doesnt deserve your dad at all
3:24 pm
uusue2

(sorry)
3:24 pm
stidmama

sounds like she is really operating out of a lot of fear -- panic.
3:25 pm
stidmama

hopefully it won't be as bad as you fear, sue.
3:25 pm
uusue2

And quite possibly egged on by her son; what is happening now is not what he told me would happen (and this letter was written before he told me that).
3:25 pm
Michnick

They were married how many, 36 years?
3:25 pm
stidmama

well, I thought I could spend more time, but getting a migraine suddenly.
3:26 pm
uusue2

Well, she's saying he can't touch their assets and she'll be filing for divorce; how much worse could it be?
3:26 pm
uusue2

It was 35 years in December.
3:26 pm
stidmama

Sue, my heart is sad for you and for your father. everyone, be well. *poof*
3:26 pm
SeaSpray

too many ism's and ing's in this grid...argghh
3:26 pm
uusue2

I noticed that, seaspray :-)
3:26 pm
cosdem

im sorry for saying this sue but she seems like shes a cold heartless b****
3:27 pm
uusue2

Yeah, it is seeming like that to me too :-(
3:27 pm
cosdem

i really do hope it works out in the end for everyone
3:27 pm
SeaSpray

how can she tell what he can and cannot do...i f he has assets, he should move them...NOW
3:27 pm
uusue2

I mean, she has her own issues, but still!!!
3:27 pm
Michnick

I agree with cosdem. Did your dad ever have an ok relationship w/the son? I have a hard time understanding how/why people do this to each other.
3:28 pm
uusue2

They're joint assets; once he gets the letter he can't touch them.
3:28 pm
uusue2

And no, my dad and the son don't get along.
3:28 pm
uusue2

She can't touch the joint assets either (although she already emptied out their safe deposit box). Grrrr.
3:29 pm
SeaSpray

then she should have to declare what was in there shouldn't she?
3:30 pm
SeaSpray

of course he can contest all of this can't he?
3:31 pm
lynxxx

Got to run. Bye everyone. Hope this doesn't hold back your Dads revovery Sue...and glad you are still there with him
3:31 pm
Michnick

Does he know what was in the safe dep box? is the house jointly owned? This is such a mess!
3:33 pm
uusue2

Everything is joint. I think he has a right to know what she took but I don't know if that's a legal right. Aargh.
3:34 pm
SeaSpray

I guess every states laws are different...The person I work for is going througha divorce right now and I had to supply all the info, over 8 million in assets, talk about a mess!
3:34 pm
SeaSpray

and it doens't matter if the assets are jointly owned or not, they each get half
3:35 pm
cosdem

Just be glad ur not in California.. otherwise she would automatically get 50%
3:35 pm
Michnick

Oh, it is so hardl Good luck Sue, you and your dad should both have the strength you need to see this through.
3:36 pm
uusue2

Right, but somebody has to count how much there is before deciding how much half is. This is where the lawyers make all their money.
3:36 pm
SeaSpray

I feel bad for your Dad sue, especially at his age...it must be very difficult
3:36 pm
SeaSpray

yep! the lawyers are getting rich
3:38 pm
uusue2

Thanks for all the thoughts, everybody - it is truly a difficult time - fortunately he is very strong (and I am putting up a good front)
3:39 pm
Michnick

do you have siblings, sue?
3:40 pm
uusue2

Not surviving (another long story). My sister has two children but they are not that close to my dad (and they live in NH anyway, closer than I am but not close)
3:40 pm
MollyL

Gads Sue. I just read back in the chat. Poor Dad.
3:41 pm
uusue2

Yes - we are regrouping - what do they call this, the "new normal"? It kind of sucks.
3:41 pm
Michnick

oh, so you are really dealing with this all on your own; be strong! We are here for you, as much as we canl
3:41 pm
uusue2

thanks, mich - it really does help to have a community that I can chat with :-)
3:42 pm
Michnick

This is such a safe place.
3:42 pm
SeaSpray

hang in there sue, I will be glad to share what I have learned if need be
3:42 pm
cosdem

i do believe in karma. she needs to be careful. maybe its all a misunderstanding? maybe she's scared and her son talked her into it?
3:42 pm
uusue2

thanks, seaspray (you don't know any divorce lawyers in northern NJ, do you?)
3:42 pm
uusue2

yes, cos, I am worried about that.
3:43 pm
cosdem

is there a way you can maybe talk to her alone?
3:43 pm
SeaSpray

Sorry, I'm in MD...Does your Dad have an accountant? sometimes they will refer
3:43 pm
Michnick

Where in NJ are you, sue? My bro-in-law is a lawyer, not divorce but he's worked in firms in both Philly and Cherry Hill.
3:44 pm
Michnick

Oh, that's South Jersey, where is my brain today???
3:46 pm
redturtlehead

Good Afternoon! uu, when are you scheduled to go back...?
3:48 pm
uusue2

hi, red, right now I am scheduled to return on Saturday but will stay longer if needed,
3:48 pm
uusue2

mich, I'm in northern NJ, near Morristown and Somerville.
3:48 pm
redturtlehead

Sounds like Dad is doing alright, but there are the financial issues? or some such?
3:49 pm
uusue2

he's called one lawyer (who is busy at the moment) so we are still searching.
3:49 pm
Michnick

Oh, I know that area. I can ask my bro-in-law anyway. He works in Princeton now too.
3:49 pm
uusue2

Red, his wife is filing for divorce.
3:49 pm
uusue2

thanks, mich!
3:49 pm
SeaSpray

sue the person I work for resides in WV, I am in MD (some of his assets are in MD, PA, WV, and SC) his spouse resides in PA and filed there...did she file in NJ?
3:49 pm
redturtlehead

Ahh, messy. and unpleasant.
3:49 pm
bichon

sorry to but in, but in 5?
3:50 pm
SeaSpray

Sooo, he had to get an attorney who practices in PA and knows their laws
3:50 pm
Michnick

I guess when you are dealing with 8 mil. in assets it is even messier.
3:50 pm
uusue2

She hasn't filed yet, but it will be in New Jersey, yes.
3:50 pm
uusue2

And I don't have any in words, bichon :-)
3:50 pm
MollyL

Worth remembering folks. If you share a safety deposit box with someone, make sure you have a copy of what is in it somewhere safe. That way, if that person cleans it out, you know what was taken.
3:50 pm
SeaSpray

ahhh, at least he can get a local attorney then
3:51 pm
cosdem

People often forget that marriage is a legal partnership and do not treat it as such, regarding finances.
3:53 pm

3:53 pm
Michnick

It is just so hard to come to terms w/the fact that the person you have joined your life with may some day turn against you.
3:54 pm
MollyL

That's true Mich. And I think you have to live through someone doing it to you, or watch it happen to someone close to get practical about things. Always hope for the best, but be prepared for anything.
3:54 pm
redturtlehead

glad you got it!
3:55 pm
SeaSpray

prepared for anything is good advice Molly

I agree uusue, if my parents (who are in their early 60's were to tell me they were getting divorced...it would blow me away.

I haven't talked to her since she left; I've talked to her son, and he told me she was going for separation rather than divorce, but when he said that she'd already been to the lawyer. So I am not happy with him either.

That is just a big rip off. Bubble baths are the best.
6:19 pm
72 Temple Owl

The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years.
6:20 pm
72 Temple Owl

After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her early 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now in her 80's, a funeral director.
6:21 pm
uusue2

ah, thanks for the hugs, all - Dad and I are going to watch another episode of Foyle's War. Back later. Love you all!!

6:54 pm
Nef

Min, I'm glad your dog isn't crazy like my friends' dog. I've always suspected that my friend has made her dog needy. She was talking about getting another dog recently to keep her Ginger company; but I told her that I didn't think that was a good idea.
