1:03 am

I'm too nice, I washed all the stuff before I took it, cost a small fortune - glad I don't have to go to the laundry very often. it was mostly stuff left by people who stored stuff in our back shed.

1:39 am

(well over halfway, btw)
1:40 am

I thought calories are calories.
1:40 am

I firmly (or perhaps "firmly" is not the right word to use,..) that food you eat at church has no calories
1:40 am

too tru, neil!

and 1000 calories of a lean turkey sandwich on multi grain bread with tomatoes and dark lettuce will get you MUCH farther in life than 1000 calories of say, pork rinds
1:42 am

1:43 am

feh. anything in moderation, right?
1:43 am

that is more true than perhaps you realize, neil....my neighbor is an undertaker, and we were chatting one day, and he was just back from a conference where they were presented with findings that show that we are now taking a MARKEDLY longer period to decompose after death, due to the fact that most of us, when we die, are so full of preservatives that we are ourselves preserved. ugh.

niel,soon debit cards will be a thing of the past.just before i closed my last station,i was given a sneak peek of a prototype cred/debit/fleet card reader that uses your fingerprint only.you fill out some information with your bank,give both thumb prints,then do the same wish fuel station/s that are in the program.now you are ready.next time you need gas, you place your thumb on the sensor,fill up and drive away when done

This is my chance to make the most of this sort of excellent professional development until the next school year.

And Tom mowed down a rose that was only just now getting back to health after being defoliated by the deer over the winter. I dug it up and put it in a pot with rich dirt hoping it can regenerate one more time. *heavy sigh* it wasn't on purpose, but it makes me sad.

5:46 pm
jesdraggon

sa8,45 clue?
5:46 pm
stidmama

ack. yep. And I am pretty sure the "ragged robin" plant that my mother in law gave me years ago was weeded out too, but that could have been me, forgetting where it had been placed.
5:46 pm
stidmama

there's an SA 8? oh dear...
5:47 pm
Jillyjill

periwinkle

oh good. it is easy to make and delish, imho
5:50 pm
stidmama

I have a lot of Coba beans to use tonight, not sure what I am going to make with them, but they should be a nice change of pace from pinto beans. I might spice them up and then make tamales tomorrow.
5:51 pm
jesdraggon

untuna?
5:51 pm
periwinkle

never heard of Coba beans
5:51 pm
Jillyjill

hi - was reading about un-tuna and found an alternative to the garbanzo beans, if you're interested - frozen and thawed tofu - different texture, maybe a little more like tuna

6:16 pm

welki, that's amazing
6:16 pm

oh welki, that's not a lot of fun... but probably better a little warm than freezing. I planted (optimistically) our hubbard squash today. Hoping that 110 days from now we will be baking seeds and eating pies!
6:16 pm

Hi mama.
6:21 pm
stidmama

I like hydrangeas, one of these days I'll get a couple for the wooded area in the back. They'd do well there.
6:22 pm
Uneaixoise

once they're established, they require no care at all except an occasional drink in dry weather
6:23 pm
Uneaixoise

I've had enough blooms this year to be able to share bouquets with a number of folks :-)
6:23 pm
stidmama

yes, it's the type of shrub I really try to plant -- low maintenance. I am trying to get the only beds that need attention to be the veggies and a few flower beds up by the front entry. Everything else I try to plan so it's a once-a-year touch up.
6:23 pm
stidmama

I have lovely snowball bush blooms this year.
6:24 pm
welki

i had some back east - miss them, forsythia, peonies, azaleas, pussy willows - sigh
6:24 pm
Uneaixoise

cool!!
6:24 pm
Uneaixoise

welki, my peonies were very happy this year too -- one of my favorites
6:24 pm
stidmama

I like forsythia, but Mother is allergic -- I have lilacs and roses in the yard, so am avoiding planting forsythia. (although down by the road a bush might work...)
6:25 pm
Uneaixoise

sounds beautiful, stiddy
6:26 pm
welki

ok - if i start now and swing south to pick une up, we can be there by - thursday, if we drive straight through, stid :)
6:26 pm

it's nice, but somewhat wild after all those years unable to keep things up. By next year the yard will be functional again I think.
6:26 pm
stidmama

:-) I'll put the kettle on for tea, and we can visit Mother, too -- she has a "garden room" that is just delightful.

Jillyjill

My home's in Montana, I wear a bandana, my spurs are silver; my pony is gray...
8:09 pm
Jillyjill

My luck never changes
With foot in the stirrup I'll gallop away
Yip-ee-tie, yip-ee-tie-yeh!
Yip-ee-tie, yip-ee-tie-oh!
8:09 pm
stidmama

wow jilly! that's some great lasso work there.
8:10 pm
Jillyjill

When valleys are dusty
My pony is trusty
He lopes through the blizzard
The snow in his ears
The cattle may scatter
But what does it matter
My rope is a halter for pig-headed steers
8:10 pm
stidmama

*quietly closes door to corral after jilly*
8:10 pm
Jillyjill

Yip-ee-tie, yip-ee-tie-yeh!
Yip-ee-tie, yip-ee-tie-oh!
I whistle a merry old song of the trail
My home's in Montana
I wear a bandana
My spurs are silver
My pony is gray
When riding the ranges
My luck never changes
With foot in the stirrup I'll gallop away
8:11 pm
Jillyjill

Okay, I'm done...just couldn't resist with the topic of home....

8:39 pm
wht

I thought they were supposed to live forever, or at least 20 years. What happened?
8:40 pm
Jillyjill

Good for you jmc...our state constitution dealt with the corporation/politic issue nearly 100 years ago...
8:40 pm
jmcnrick

i have no clue. . .it may be the monitor rather than the panels. . .
8:41 pm
jmcnrick

we will see how that turns out . . . your state constitution is before the supremes shortly
8:41 pm

Does your electric meter still run backwards?

i think it looks pretty good for montana but that doesn't solve the federal issue
8:42 pm

Ah, yay. A little rain here too. Forced all the loud, drunk, barbecuing neighbors indoors. : D
8:42 pm
Jillyjill

Our oldest (History major) is home visiting and we have had many a conversation on it..
8:42 pm
Jillyjill

bye gwen...catch you later!
8:42 pm
jmcnrick

yay rain!
8:43 pm
Jillyjill

Sometimes rain has more benefits than moisture!
8:44 pm
wht

jmc, do you think there is a chance that the supremes will admit to having made a mistake?
8:44 pm
jmcnrick

well it is possible. . . that is why they took the montana case. . . but there is more to it than that
8:45 pm
rururocks

your neighbors are the Donner Party Molly?
8:45 pm
Jillyjill

I tell you, the history behind our MT aritcles should give them pause for cause....the War of the Copper Kings was a really black eye in the history of Montana..
8:46 pm
wht

jmc, I actually think that the real problem was not corporate personhood as much as equating political contributions to speech.
8:47 pm
jmcnrick

are there any books or articles about that jilly? I am interested in as much information as possible
8:48 pm
MollyL

Yes, Ru, the Donner party. Much louder though.
8:48 pm
Jillyjill

I think it's a snapshot of what's evil in our political system, heck, our nation in general...the WRONG people have all the influence
8:48 pm
jmcnrick

wht it is a collision of two problems. . . corporate personhood is a problem and campaign finance is a problem. . . this case is the crossroad.
8:48 pm
rururocks

yikes
8:48 pm
rururocks

I'd hate that
8:49 pm

I agree jilly which is why i want to spend the rest of my career dealing with these issues. . . and then redistricting. . .

MIchael Malone was the President of my alma mater
8:52 pm
welki

i should have paid better attention in school
8:52 pm
jmcnrick

why welki? its not like they tell you about this stuff in most schools
8:54 pm
welki

maybe not, but perhaps if a spark had been lit, i'd be better informed. it wasn't until college that i learned how to 'learn' history - the only way i could retain any of it was to associate art and music with a particular era
8:54 pm
Jillyjill

another interesting one is Collapse by Michael Diamond...on the societal implications in general
8:54 pm

already had that one in my sights jilly but ty

Welki, so if you need music to learn history, start listening to the likes of Woody Guthrie.
8:58 pm

8:58 pm

glad I was not in Illinois today, high temp at home was 97F!
8:58 pm

Me too!
9:01 pm

or there may be places that will live stream it (which is how I saw the eclipse)
9:01 pm
