It is a prepackaged biscuit mix... has everything but the milk or water in a box... can be used for biscuits, waffles, pancakes, shortcakes
1:34 am
VolleymomDee

hang on... let me see if I can google the ingredients
1:35 am

hmmmm, wonder if we have something similar over here. could you email the recipe for those biscuits please? they sound really seriously yummy

1:37 am
VolleymomDee

A General Mills product that is combination of flour, salt and a leavening agent and was created to be a short-cut product for making biscuits. Bisquick is also used for making coffee cake, dumplings and pancakes.

Here is what to use to make your own: Ingredients

1 cup flour,
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon shortening


Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse on/off until well blended. Use as you would any recipe that calls for Biscuick™ brand Store in a cool dry location.

1:51 am
VolleymomDee

My hubby started some work in the laundry room, so I can commiserate and empathize!
1:54 am
grannyrose

problem is, once we start we have to move mother mac out until it's finished.
1:55 am
VolleymomDee

Because of the dust?
1:58 am
grannyrose

that...and having no where to prepare her meals....plus to exit the house, she walks through the kitchen area.
1:59 am
VolleymomDee

Aww, that makes sense. What all are you doing in the kitchen?
2:02 am
grannyrose

everything, the whole lot is to be gutted. then all new cupboards, benchtops, cooktop, oven sink, larder. can't wait.
2:02 am
grannyrose

we are removing a wall to create a larger area, will have the washing machine and dryer under a benchtop, european style.
2:03 am
VolleymomDee

How absolutely wonderful! You'll have to email me a before and after photo.
2:03 am
grannyrose

also, moving the doorway over closer to the wall, so that there will be an unobstructed passage down to mother macs rooms for when the ambo's are here
2:04 am
VolleymomDee

That is really smart to do that.
2:05 am
grannyrose

we have already bought everything,except the cupboards and larder. i want only drawers in the kitchen, so i can access the very back of the bottom cupboards.
2:06 am
VolleymomDee

I have several like that in this kitchen, and I really love them.
2:07 am
VolleymomDee

I especially like them for my pans.
2:07 am
grannyrose

i'm trying to keep as much to the original era of the house, with taps etc, and am keeping the old tilux on the walls.
2:09 am
grannyrose

tilux is plaster sheeting, already embossed as if it is tiles, plan to make it look like the original by painting in the grooves with white, to mimic grouting.
2:09 am
VolleymomDee

That will fit perfectly with the rest of the house.
2:10 am
grannyrose

sure hope so....am ever so sorry that we didn't do before and after photos of the bathroom. but will definitely do so for the rest of the house.
2:13 am
VolleymomDee

I was always awful at taking photos in the other house. Once we moved, I regretted it. I'm glad you thought of it now.
2:13 am
VolleymomDee

Well, I need to get going.... I hope you have a great day!
2:14 am

thanx, hun. hope you are able to sleep well, and awake refreshed

5:10 am
sprite

oh sweetie, I am so glad! That is certainly good news. Not the ankle, though. Darn. You home again, with leg up?
5:11 am
grannyrose

nah, still working until x-rays confirm it, and a course of action is decided. just like the last time...relatively pain-free, until i sit down for an extended period of time...then the spasms start.
5:12 am
sprite

(((hugs rose close)))
You are definitely ready for a long stretch of good health, aren't you!
5:13 am
grannyrose

it seems to be just under the old suture line, from my triple fusion. am hoping desperately that the staples and screws have held.
5:13 am
sprite

indeed... next time they should secure it all with duct tape.
5:14 am
grannyrose

sprite, it will have to force my son and his wife into a decision about the house. they MUST decide to buy or move out, so i can either sell or rent it out.
5:15 am
grannyrose

lolol....your faith in duct tape is amazing.
5:15 am
sprite

yep. No more excuses. Time to decide.
5:15 am

:D As long as you apply enough of it, yes.

they said it would be 20 degrees Celcius here today... but it is COLD!
5:22 am

5:23 am
sprite

no, just the temperature... way lower than they promised us. So cold!
But good news: I finally got my 'wake-up light', to battle the winter depression... started 2 days ago, and already was much more awake this morning. I even dusted half the living room before 9!

mimi, i am not holding spritey back...but from my own recent experience....i realise that a gradual return to daily tasks is the ONLY way to achieve a 'normal' life.
5:36 am

wooot lady! Happy birthday and *hugs*
5:37 am
herinfernallady

NOt my birthday.
5:37 am
MimiCat

Oh, I know, rose...didn't mean to convey that I felt you were holding her back...just trying to reassure.
5:37 am
sprite

no, you are not holding me back at all, rose, I could use that reminder... was already planning my day full of chores and I shouldn't. I will babble, lunch and then I will see if I can do something more.
5:37 am
sprite

oh sorry, lady, lol. I hope you had fun, then, anyway.
5:37 am
herinfernallady

Sprite take 15 min a day. See Flylady.net really pulled me out of funk
5:38 am

it is fine, Mimi, thanks. Am happy to have your vote of confidence as well.
5:38 am
sprite

will check it out, thanks lady
5:39 am
grannyrose

okay, mimi. sprite sometimes gets carried away, just as i did. i nearly destroyed all that my surgery hoped to achieve by a zealous desire to return to my 'normal' life.
5:39 am
sprite

oh, looks cool! Am gonna do that later on, sounds like fun.

that is exactly it, rose. That yearning to just get past it, to be back to normal. And no way we are gonna get there by overdoing stuff... but it is hard not to try anyway
5:40 am
herinfernallady

Honestly the first day all I did was put a bra on. And some days that is all I can do. That and laundry
5:40 am

hey herin...which movie yesterday? himself and i saw oblivion.

maybe, when I have a little money again, I will treat myself to a very cozy jogging suit. Something easily slipped on and still suitable for going outdoors or having people over.

oh! Did you like it, lady? Was it any good?
5:44 am
MimiCat

Pertinent to our discussion, I have a phantom: lumbar.
5:44 am

Also I have a social question. Is it good manners to attend a hens/bucks if you are a guest at the wedding and have answered yes to attending
5:45 am

of course, herin. all good.
5:45 am
sprite

lol Mimi... good one!
5:45 am

Have seen it before though

I would think so, lady? If you say you will come and you do come, sounds like good manners to me.

5:48 am

am pretty good, ruby :) Less tired and more active. Very nice feeling.
5:48 am

Raffie drools so much when she drinks, that she looks like the bearded lady in the circus, totally black down to the fllor. And this is a beige dog. She is still cute, but looks rather monstrous ATM
5:49 am
herinfernallady

I just think if the Bride and Groom are paying for your butt at the wedding you would think it would be good manners to attend the wedding
5:49 am
herinfernallady

bugger hens/bucks
5:49 am

so... lady, are you wondering if you can cancel the hen'bucks party in favor of spending time with your sister?
5:49 am
grannyrose

don't care. don't mind. SEND PICS!!!!!
5:49 am
sprite

err yes, indeed. I'd certainly say so.
5:49 am

Ruby, are they getting along with each other? Has Raffie adjusted well?
5:50 am

as long as she is sweet, ruby
5:50 am
herinfernallady

No. That was the weekend gone this is next weekend
5:50 am
grannyrose

herin, just do what it seems right by you, hun
5:50 am
sprite

in that case, yes, lady. Invited, accepted, paid for... means showing up.
5:51 am
herinfernallady

Ok you have gotten confused. I am saying if there is an invite to you to attend a hens night as you are going to be a guest at the upcoming wedding isn't it good manners to attend the hens even if it isn't your thing
5:51 am
rubyfoo

she is an absolute Darling. Licks anything she can reach, eats perfectly and, most important, gets along with Rufie. They are adorable together. He brings her toys and shares food.
5:52 am
rubyfoo

I'm not sure if Herin knows that I lost my Ruby in February and Rafaella is the "replacement" puppy
5:53 am
MimiCat

Wow, ruby, that is great! Doesn't always go so well so you lucked out. I'm sure you had a lot to do with it, though...you're so sensitive to their needs.
5:53 am
rubyfoo

Rufie was jealous at first, but not for long
5:53 am
sprite

hmmm not sure, lady. I would say yes, that would be good manners. But doing something you really don't like shouldn't be necessary... if you hate it, don't go and explain to the bride/groom
5:54 am
grannyrose

herin...as i said....whatever it feels right to YOU. most of us go to the hen's/buck's night AND the wedding. but knowing you...i suggest the wedding only. it will not reflect on you at all.
5:54 am
sprite

awwww Rufie is the sweetest. So funny how he is now the mature dog.
5:54 am

Going to leave for now...bbl. Bye and hugs all around.

Crappy way for him to start school vacation. :(
8:29 am

Frank is still doing ok but is getting pretty worn out by the chemo
8:29 am

That can be very stressful uusue. However, I know many women that have that result and go through those steps and all is well.
8:30 am
uusue2

However Leo has a new girlfriend who is very nice, intelligent, and a successful businesswoman - she is also going to college at night, pre-med, wants to be an ob-gyn in the Navy
8:30 am

I've been through that twice, Sue. Scary, but that is purpose of mammogram.

Your kids have spring break this week, Car?

8:33 am

We get the week off in February and then this week in April. I do prefer it when it starts right after Easter, but it was soooo early this year.
8:34 am

when we k lived in the east, the kids got that much needed Feb break.
8:34 am

The local ski resorts depend on the Feb break for much business. The last ski place closed last evening.
8:35 am

I don't have it, Jenny
8:35 am

Our Spring break is built around Easter, as so many families travel that weekend.

Nice to know, witchy. I would choose Android OS over iOS.
9:03 am

Can't use licketys expert though its only windows
9:08 am
flosey

witchy, I copied Lickety's clues and pasted it into my bio, can you copy and paste to a doc and use it that way? at least you'd have the stats.
9:09 am
flosey

just thought I'd try it and it did cut/paste
9:12 am
witchy

Thanks flosey i still can use the clues page but on a separate tab not all on the same page as expert does.
9:13 am
flosey

ah, ok, I also had to do that for a few days, but was able to contact Lickety and get it back on here

hi ruby, how are you doing? don't often see you anymore
9:22 am

I think we are on at different times, flosey
9:23 am
rubyfoo

right now I am escaping from my increasingly nasty husband
9:23 am
flosey

yes, I start at 10 pm (flip) and during the day it's hit/miss times
9:23 am
rubyfoo

I made him his martini but he was just rarin' for an argument, so I let him talk to my back
9:23 am
flosey

oh dear, glad you have this escape
9:24 am
rubyfoo

yes, my studio is MINE
9:25 am
rubyfoo

he is becomingeirder and bored and can't really carry on a conversation with me (maybe because he doesn't want to) any more
9:26 am
rubyfoo

he wanders around the house like a lost soul
9:26 am
flosey

so sorry, ruby, that is not good for either of you
9:26 am
rubyfoo

I'm OK but feel very sorry for him. And, of course, it is unpleasant when he says nasty things
9:27 am
flosey

of course, negative is not good
9:27 am
Scrabbler

Do you think it is depression only or is dementia an issue?
9:27 am
rubyfoo

Happily, my son is coming to visit next week for a few days and then my friend from Miami for 11 days and then, in June, husband's daughter for 10. And spring is finally here, so there is lots to do in the garden
9:27 am
flosey

glad you have the babble group to chat with
9:28 am
flosey

wonderful
9:28 am
Scrabbler

Excellent things to look forward to, Ruby
9:29 am
rubyfoo

scrabs" he's almost 88, so whatever its name, its age-related. On Saturday, he"lost" the car and I had to have a friend drive me to where he was and I found it immediately, right where he said he had parked it.
9:29 am
rubyfoo

Babble saves me very often. It is supportive and accepting.
9:29 am
Scrabbler

He should not be driving.
9:30 am
rubyfoo

I know that, but haven't the heart to take away his autonomy. He is OK when he goes to his 2 or 3 usual places. If I stop him from driving, I think it will finish him.
9:31 am
rubyfoo

I only go with him as far as the next village
9:31 am
flosey

wow, here, when we reach 80, we have to have a medical exam before our drivers license can be renewed - if you fail that test, then there are 2 more options
9:32 am
rubyfoo

His driving is surprisingly good, he just doesn't know where he is going. I imagine that one of these days, he won't come back --THEN I'll take away his keys
9:32 am
hego

If you ever find him. Hi All.
9:32 am
rubyfoo

There is no testing here after you get your license
9:32 am
flosey

but it would be better if someone else did that, so he won't blame you
9:32 am

nothing I can do; when he was 60, who would have thought it
10:11 am

well i really admire you for not abandoning him despite how hard it is
10:12 am

but what about ruby's well being?
10:12 am
rubyfoo

I'm really OK and looking forward to visitors. I just need to keep him fed and watered
10:12 am

He bought me this house and here i am staying

10:14 am

I don'tfeel so much suffering, fortunately. I guess this is the price I paid.
10:14 am
bichon

no matter how bad it would be for you and for him, you do have a choice
10:15 am
hurshy

remind me, is he horrible like, through his mind going and he can't help it, kind of thing, or is he mentally competent?
10:15 am
rubyfoo

If he ever gets violent, that will be another story. For the moment, I can escape and have my own space

Ruby, emotional abuse is just as debilitating as physical abuse.

Excuse me for interrupting, but I love your bluebirds Molly

10:17 am

With his lack of communication skills in French, he couldn't manage anyplace else
10:17 am
rubyfoo

Ther is no other place for e, Bichon, with my dogs and my mature garden.
10:17 am
MollyL

I know that is how you feel Ruby. I think a better option is to push VERY hard for different meds for him. No matter what the doctor thinks.
10:18 am
bichon

You can't put your dogs and your plants above your emotional needs
10:18 am
hurshy

ruby is he mentally competent, or dementia is what causes him to be awful?
10:18 am
rubyfoo

His doctor thought he should have anti-depressants, but i can't figure out how to administer them
10:18 am
mael

you mention your son and your friends, I am sure they are aching for you. Is there any help you can get with in home aid, at least?
10:19 am
MollyL

Tell him they are vitamins. : D
10:19 am
bichon

You mean he won't take the anti-depressant ruby?
10:19 am
rubyfoo

that's a good question,hurshy, but it's hrd to tell. Whene were just courting and he would get nasty, my father used to call it "The Friday night fights" hahah- ruefully
10:19 am

my husband takes anti-depressants and they are WONDERFUL.
10:20 am

but, he does have dementia?
10:20 am

I know my aunt (in Italy) has a nurse come in every day to help her take care of her emotionally abusive and depressed elderly husband. The nurse is also the one who takes him to the clinic when he needs his meds adjusted
10:20 am
rubyfoo

which one does he take?
10:20 am
MollyL

And what Bich said. Your dogs and your garden are not as important as your happiness.
10:20 am
mixi6

no.
10:21 am

it seems to help my uncle comply, if there is an outside authority figure telling him he needs to take his meds
10:21 am

I don't know the difference between Altzheirmers, old age and dementia. He certainly has some of them
10:21 am

my hubby takes efexor and wellbutrin.
10:21 am

Unfortunately, he charms his doctor who is a Fr macho guy who doesn't really listen to me.

Ruby, I would use the generic term of dementia, doesn't matter whether you call is Alzheimer dementia. But depression in the elderly can mimic dementia too.

I will look up alla those drugs online and try to find something I can put in his food
10:23 am

This little girl had a grim prognosis at diagnosis in July 2010--very rare vaginal cancer.
10:24 am
bichon

what!! that's awful. Hope they didn't have to do surgery
10:24 am
Scrabbler

Any SSRI should be tried--fluoxetine, sertraline...
10:24 am
rubyfoo

I din't knowsuch a cancer existed! Bravo for y our success in treating her, scrabs
10:24 am
Scrabbler

Radiation treatment saved her uterus, vagina and rectum from being removed. She is so sweet and has been through hell.
10:25 am

Glad it was found in time Scrabs
10:25 am

that is awful, scrabs. I am very, very glad she is recovering.

That makes me grateful for every day! My problems are very small compared to that
10:26 am
hurshy

could i get help with the E and the U?
10:26 am

I don't think it matters what you call it. Back in the day it was "hardening of the arteries". The problems lie in the result of the behavior it produces.

i derive strength and joy from nature, whether flora, fauna, or scenery. even menacing storm clouds have an awesome beauty.

I was making a joke TK.. I'd rather get spirituality from nature than church myself if that means anything.

tough is an understatement. tired here, but with only 15 words found after about 30 minutes i listed. don't want to be in here all day. didi you get the ur 7/44? it was clued as sounds like an element, but i can't seem to monkey it :(
there were a lot of babblers in sandy's way, plenty of worry about their safety in the chog

hello TK. I was whining about my difficult husband but I used Sprite's system "Talk to my hand, my head is tired" and walked away. He apologized profusely at dinner

11:32 am
rubyfoo

I don't think he can help his mood swings
11:33 am
TraderKate

has he actuallly got a diagnosis?
11:33 am
rubyfoo

No, but I don't think it would make any difference. He's old, whether it's Alzhemer's or old age, what's the difference.
11:34 am
rubyfoo

He's almost 88 and is in relatively good health. If he c=falls or gets pneudmonia again,that will do him in. For the moment, 'm not thinking about mu6 lol
11:35 am
TraderKate

scrabs mentioned a few things, but i think you were already gone. ssri's can make a huge difference in many elderly patients as far as smoothing out moods.

1:44 pm
welki

finished yesterday, an aussie won - hard to believe it, but it was suspenseful (i'm not a big fan, but the other half is and even i got into it)
1:44 pm
welki

went into the equivalent of golf overtime - there was a tie at the end of 18
1:44 pm
TraderKate

i watched the results form the liberal leadersip convention last night
1:44 pm
welki

well, a tie at the end of the tournament - cumulative scores
1:45 pm
welki

and what do you think of young mr. trudeau?
1:45 pm
TraderKate

so if there's a tie, what do they do - look at the previous rounds' scores or do they play extra holes?
1:46 pm
welki

they play the 18th hole over again - and if there's still a tie, they go to another hole (would have been the 10th this year, if the winning shot hadn't happened)
1:47 pm
TraderKate

i think justin has big boots to fill, but he seems to be doing a good job of stepping out fr4om behind his dad's shadow. i don't follow politics that closely, but it was interesting to watch the final counts for the first round, 80.1 % is a huge mandate!
1:48 pm
TraderKate

so it's like sudden death o/t in hockey. i wonder how often there is a tie after x# of games...
1:48 pm
welki

time will tell - like you said, daddy's shoes were big and he's going to come under constant attack/criticism because of his lineage, nevermind his politics
1:50 pm
welki

kind of like a kennedy son - could be the savviest politician, but always under scrutiny
1:52 pm
welki

i'm not well educated in politics, after 16 years in canada, still trying to wrap my head around the differences between canada and the u.s. (which i still have problems understanding sometimes, too!)
1:52 pm
mael

they did go to the 10th, welkie. They tied in the first tibreaker hole :)
1:53 pm
welki

ohhh, that's right, mael! it was the 15' putt that put the jacket on scott
1:53 pm
mael

it was pretty exciting, and I normally do not ever watch golf :)
1:53 pm
welki

(kate, there was a tie last year, too - not sure how often it happens. first australian win, though)
1:54 pm
welki

^5 mael - who'd a thunk golf could be riveting? (other than golfers)
1:56 pm
mael

I know! It was a very good match (match? competition? thing?)
1:56 pm
welki

don't quite get why they allow those belly putters - next they'll be shooting the balls through a gift-wrap paper tube into the holes. (although scott did seem to miss a lot of shots with his - but not the money shot!)
1:57 pm
TraderKate

the aussie babblers will be waving the flag with pride today :)
i did see a bit of the last round, and it did seem a nail-biter, but ended up with the political thing - only because it was like watching history happening
1:57 pm
welki

husband says it gives the player more stability, especially the old-timers who might be a little shaky with a regular putter - but i don't know if there's a place for them in pro golfing
1:58 pm
welki

and they should be proud, kate - no small feat, considering the number of games/tournaments the players have to get through to get that far
1:58 pm

4:07 pm

ur?
4:07 pm
MollyL

You know, it's sad and scary that someone can not only find out how to build a bomb on the internet, but they can also purchase all the ingredients to make it.
4:09 pm
Kazzer99

that is the scariest thing of all - it must be a night mare for security forces. More so for you than us as you are so much bigger
4:10 pm

Apparently they found two more explosive devices and disarmed them before they blew.

do they know who did this bombing? My friend is there - lucky she was finished running and was not near the area
4:41 pm
rubyfoo

OMG, going upstairs to tune in the BBC
4:42 pm
MollyL

It's all still too new for any definitive news to be available.
4:43 pm
MollyL

I did hear something about cell phone service being shut down to prevent remote triggering of any further explosives. There has been an emergency telephone number set up for people trying to find out the status of loved ones.
4:51 pm
Trifioso

hello friends. TOUGH day here in Boston....Primo texted me RIGHT away, to let me know he and his GF were ok. LOVE that kid

4:52 pm

4:52 pm
Trifioso

two more bombs found, being dismantled now
4:52 pm
Trifioso

incident at JFK library has been determined to be unrelated
4:52 pm
MollyL

Glad to hear your boy is okay Trif.
4:52 pm
Trifioso

thanks molly
4:54 pm
MollyL

Kind of weird that a fire would occur at the exact same time though. I have to wonder if that was meant to be some sort of distraction technique.
4:54 pm
Trifioso

things catch on fire all the time, molly
4:55 pm
MollyL

Indeed they do. However, I would imagine this fire is going to get a lot more investigation than most.
4:56 pm
Trifioso

probably. yes.
4:59 pm
MollyL

Our Wht works in Boston, I think. I hope he checks in later.
4:59 pm

my prayers go out to all those in boston affected by this bombing and a special prayer to those first responders who are even now working to defuse two other devices

I'm having creepy flashbacks to that day, SMom.
5:00 pm

thank you all.
5:00 pm
Trifioso

its a WEIRD day
5:01 pm
Trifioso

the marathon will never be the same
5:02 pm
crosshair

nope first air travel,then large gatherings..then who knows,soon we will be jumping at shadows,which is most likely the intended effect
5:05 pm
MollyL

It's so strange to hear Boylston Street every few minutes on the news. My Mom used to tell me family stories about things that happened on Boylston Street.
5:06 pm
Minski

Greetings everyone on this dismal day. I live just north of boston. My parents were across the street and directly in between the two bombs. They said it was terrifying and that they were deaf for a while afterwards. They are fine though.
5:06 pm

i am SO GLAD minski.....prayers to you all

Excuse my language in advance, but what kind of an asshole does something like this?

A sick, twisted one.

I just can't understand.

5:07 pm

my money is on a pissed off ex husband, who timed it when he thought his ex might be crossing the line
5:08 pm

or an ex wife who wanted hubby erased
5:09 pm

I think it is more than a pissed off spouse
5:09 pm

the girls are watching spongebob. I've had enough bad news repeated over and over for now. I'll get more later.

it is why the newspaper will never die.some do not need or wish oversaturation on things like this

Lovely that the Westboro Baptist Church is thankful for the attacks.

i missed this--is it the usual god is punishing us for our sins?
6:14 pm

Yep, basically. They are thankful for god's wrath.

I thought trsh cans weren't allowed n public places any more.
6:16 pm
invictus

Why do people go after kids? That is what I don't understand. Be a terrorist, sure, whatever...but, to go after a place where you know little kids will be present? That is not human. There cannot be any humanity inside a person who would do that.
6:17 pm

oops sorry

it is good to remember Hyman Kaplan--his language has become part of our family's, but people doen't recognize when I use a Kaplanism any more.
6:21 pm
MollyL

There is no sense to be made of terrorism and acts of violence.
6:24 pm
invictus

It is supposed to be instinct to protect the young, so that the species survives. It makes no sense that there are so many defective people out there who don't have that instinct. Animals have that instinct.
6:26 pm
blueheron

I feel so angry about what happened.
6:27 pm
MollyL

Self-preservation is supposed to be instinct. And yet many of these extremists are willing to strap bombs to themselves. These people are not right, mentally.
6:28 pm
blueheron

We now cannot go to theaters, events, without watching everyone around us.
6:33 pm
invictus

It bothers me that news stations are stuck on semantics. Obama says it is "an act of terror' and they are mad because he didn't say "terrorist attack." Same thing.
6:33 pm
blueheron

I agree!!
6:34 pm
invictus

I just don't think it had to be said at all, anyway. Obviously it is terrorism.
6:35 pm
blueheron

Yes it was, as far as I'm concerned.
6:35 pm
MollyL

Terrorism is terrorism. Whether it is domestic or from another country. However, many people only associate the word terrorism with foreign enemies of the US.
6:36 pm
invictus

People forget so quickly that the largest terrorist attack pre-WTC was committed by an American.
6:37 pm
MollyL

I agree. A lot of people have forgotten all about McVeigh.

I know Molly, We can not assume that that the people who are doing this are from other countries. We have plenty of terrorist cells here in the United States.
6:38 pm
invictus

In fact, the majority of terrorist attacks on American soil have been committed by Americans.
6:39 pm
invictus

A former FBI chief said the bombs reminded him of the Centennial Park bombing in 1996. When I heard about this, that is the first thing I thought of.
6:39 pm
blueheron

It''s a sad country we live in now. I worry about my children and grandchildren.
6:40 pm
invictus

I worry about my kids, too. I am very seriously considering enrolling them in an online public school next year.
6:40 pm
blueheron

There are so many hate groups out there now.
6:41 pm
invictus

Apparently they have a poi in custody now.
6:42 pm
MollyL

POI = Person Of Interest

I often do not understand internet abbreviations. So I try to spell them out when I do, for those who may be reading along but not commenting.

Hi Liz

Hi LIz
6:46 pm
blueheron

Anyway, this scares the sh-- out of me.
6:47 pm
invictus

Scares me too. I live in an area known for oil. We are a big target.
6:47 pm
Lizlin

It is scary - but you have to get on with life. Do what you can to be safe but there's nothing else you can do. If we all cower inside then the terrorists win!
6:48 pm
MollyL

Oh well me, I'm just a short hop from Washington, DC. This, while not as severe, brings back bad memories of an awful day around here.
6:49 pm
blueheron

I won't let them win, I just have my moments.
6:49 pm
Lizlin

I lived in London for most of my life - remember all the bombings on public transport very well!
6:49 pm
Lizlin

I know that, blueheron - I wasn't being personal!
6:49 pm
invictus

My boyfriend is an Iraq veteran and he has always been really paranoid about crowded places. So, we don't really go to big events anyway.
6:50 pm
blueheron

Where do you live Molly? I was just in Virginia to see my sister and daughter. I went to see the cherry blossoms.
6:52 pm
Lizlin

I agree with Molly's point that we mustn't forget that many acts of terror are committed by "home grown" - not by foreign groups.
6:52 pm
blueheron

My son-in-law had 2 tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He's now in S. Korea for a week.
6:54 pm

No worries Liz, I knew that:)
