Is Bimbo a martyr? Very neat cartoon.

My mother's memorial service is today. I found out my quiet demure aunt from Cambridge, who is studying for a graduate degree in old and middle English... hitch hiked from n.y. to s.f. across canada the summer of '69. Great story.

*pours an extra-strength coffee* (((Elorrum)))

Hope it goes well for you, my dear friend.

I am out in the country again at my mother's, GORGEOUS day here, sun sparkling off the water... Misa posted a photo of the sunrise on her fb page but I think has elected to take a little more rest. 8) I was up late (early?) recovering from my heartbreak about the Nationals (LOST game five in the NINTH after holding a huge lead yikes) and conversating with my younger son Puppy. He's home from school to visit with Misa 8) and, wants advice about changing his major to Sculpture... 8) 8) 8)

We were talking about all you guys last night! Miss you so much.

Thinking of you Elorrum.

Watched the game last night and was thinking about a DC vs SF contest and talking to you, MDF about that and then that 9th inning. If it weren't for you, MDF, I'd say between the Giants 3 game sweep in Cincy and that ending, some of the most exciting baseball I've seen in years. As Dodgers fans used to say, MDF, "wait till next year"

Off to get a tour of the Lawrence Livermore Labs with my daughter Naomi this AM. They only open the Labs about once every couple of years for visitors so it should be extremely interesting. I get to see where she works and get a better idea as to what she does there.

Have a good day, kiddies

Gotta run.

Thanks folks. Marty, if they have those switches, that say, "don't touch" please resist.

and in the news... not really I don't think anyway... but it's news to me, and makes me think of fun times with good friends.

Hey did you guys see the one about the fellow they found parboiled inside one of the Bumblebee Tuna's Steamers? guess we'll have to start placing Dahlmerfree Tuna labels on cans now.
In better news; the debates are now behind us. given Ami-lands short attention span, in about an 1hr and 12 min 90% of the population will have forgotten who said what, the remaining 10% will complain about the Apathy, and low voter turn out.

Is Cracker a slur over there in England Grai? I figured you are called biscuits. or is a biscuit a cookie, if so what do you call a biscuit? Does the saying; "she's one smart cookie!" have any meaning?

(((Elorrum))) Hang in there.

Puppy can dance! I once met a great sculptor who told me he learned to "dance" around his sculptures as he was sculpting them...said it made them more life-like and 3-D and on and on...dnace Puppy, dance :)

Interesting toon today Yg, so very burny, heh heh...imho.

I'm off to show the rental house, ugh, I soooo much would rather leave it un-rented and available for traveling pre & post burners but not quite there yet (so far MY deck and living room floor is working fine and it's free!)

knowmad the whole cracker/biscuit/cookie thing is All messed up. basically cookies are pretty much the same, biscuits are like cookies but not, what you call biscuits we call scones and crackers are for cheese. Krackers are from the south of america and stupid- i may be the only person in London who is both British and know what it means. She is one smart cookie would mean the same over her as there IF we ever said it, but that's because we get a lot of Americana tv and influence over by trying to avoid European influence.

In Utah, the things they call scones are actually fry-bread. My scones have oatmeal in them and are heavy and sweet, and my biscuits are flaky and buttery.

The real question is, what the fuck is a crumpet? I know it isn't an English muffin. Kinda. Maybe?

Scones are kind of like a drop biscuit; dense and short.

Crumpets are really good. Soft and toast up completely different than an English muffin.
