Sick Puppies – Maybe
Those are some sick pups from Oz…! ;-)
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Hey CTuttle. Are you a Sick Puppy, d00d? ;-) Great tune!
Hey– you’re pretty kewl fer a guy. >:->
You betcha…! ;-)
Aloha and Congrats…!
Close, OFG…! Aloha…! Are ya on the road again…?
Congrats to me? Fer what, d00d? Oh, the 1st one here … I almost had a heart attack thinking I was winning a Gosprey (and yes I’ll take that!) or sumpin’. ;-)
DST is wacking me out this year. So seem to be sumtin like 24-hour lapping.
The Zed that eluded OFG…! ;-)
What’s the reading on your Geiger CTut?
Aloha, eCAHN…! What DST…? ;-)
Btw, how’s the Hudson Valley tonite…?
*heh* I really should pick me up one…!
Where to buy No-Jet-Lag … it’s homoeopathic and it works as I have tested it numerous times.
Chilly in HV.
Have spent a lot of time tonight complaining about being female and having a nuke in proximity. So maybe I can get over those subjects.
Daylight savings time normally does nothing to upset my bioclock. But somehow this year, I can’t get up in the morning, so here I am to irritate y’all tonight.
I could use one of two OTCs that work for me. But my bioclock will catch up with the actual clock soon enough.
Irritate away, M’dear…! ;-)
Saying hello to selise, who I just greeted in LN.
Ooh… Did ya tell her to come on up…? ;-)
Aloha CT and everyone here! I have the time-switch blues too, and my sleep has been messed up to begin with. Sigh…
My hypothesis on that subject is that we all have a quantity of misbehavior we must indulge in in our lifetimes. I look for opportunities to misbehave without it blowing back on me too much.
Recognizing that my personal MQ (misbehavior quotient) is prolly a lot higher than most.
Hey OFG, if you’re still here — that was me who dropped a comment on one of your Facebook pics earlier.
You is one busy boy today! a post and a host with the most! Aloha
“I Feel Lucky (LIVE)” – Mary Chapin Carpenter
This Sick Puppies song launched their career…
all the same (free hugs)
ooooh, good choice! Love her, she is from VA :-)
I thought I’d hear/see Janis or the Chantels. Owell, I’ll have to quote from those pages I get all the time: “This page intentionally left blank”.
Aloha, LL…! How’s NoVa tonite…?
I like these Aussies!
Wishing external circumstances were happier.
So to pick out one: Both my beehives survived the harsh winter.
Don’t know why I feel such an emotional attachment to my bee girls. But I do. So there.
Going to make popcorn. BBS with plenty for everyone.
Pel…! Aloha…! Been awhile…! How’s the Silver State…? *g*
Quiet in my neck of the woods CT; awaiting some springlike weather come Friday!
Aloha, stranger…! *g*
Scuttlebutt is that she’ll appear at The Birchmere under some name you’ve never heard of. So you walk in and viola!
Because you’re the queen bee? I liked my bees too. Don’t worry– it’s very normal for a bee keep.
That’s quite possible! Never got a chance to see her play the Birchmere; matter of fact I really wasn’t aware of her when she was still playing locally, much to my regret.
Hi LL, CT and everyone. I got the time switch blues too.
Hey Margot :-)
Keep your eyes peeled. Heh– she’s going to be at Wolf Trap and tickets just became available March 12th.
jmo, but don’t think you need to know why, just that you do.
v glad they made it through the winter.
evening, CT, firegods
Not a bee keeper, but I’ve a hive under/inside a window sill of my back porch, invisible, been there for years. Sometimes I see one of them outside and sleeping for a few minutes.
I recently stole your line as I liked it so much but I gave you a hat tip. ;-)
i was just trying to check up on the news a bit. any suggestions for good link for up-to-date info re japan?
Aloha, Margot…! How’s Ohio tonite…?
Btw, what time change blues…? Ya’ll are just here an hour early…! ;-)
sweet! thank you…will round up some friends and get tickets ASAP!
hiya mzchief Thanks … which line was that?
Sounds like a great time. Picnic basket on the lawn first, music later.
hi PPD, she went to make popcorn for all of us ;-)
Your signature: “‘Evening fire gods”
You got it! And pray for no summer thunderstorms ~~~
I think they’ll take pity on you and allow you under the umbrella of one of the food carts.
Back atcha too.
Gotta big bowl of popcorn. Offering all around.
Alas & also alack — years ago I began semi-annual visits to a periodontist who insisted I eschew popcorn forever (though not in those exact words).
NHK World is a good source and Xinhua…! ;-)
Things are okay. I’m trying to get over the nasty coughy illness that grabbed me last week and shook me around! I’m much better, though.
Been keeping quiet.
How is your island doing? Much damage from the tsunami? Maui? Others?
hiya LL. Thanks, mzchief — beats firegourds, firegurts, or fireguards.
heh, maybe! Although as I get older (oof) I’ve been buying pavilion tickets, not only for a better line of sight but to be out of the weather, and my old-ish bones can’t take sitting on the ground for too long…
Aw, those periodontists aren’t no fun at all :-(
I surfed to Xinhua English and this flashed across the screen: “Lady Gaga surprising show-up at Louisville gay bar” (xinhuanet.com, Mar. 15, 2011). Is that Louisville as in Kentucky?!
i’m off now. thanks for the link and for hosting lln….
I am gonna get up to NYC sometime for sure; really want to meet you all!
Pavilion tickets? Yeah, those are the way to go.
‘nite selise :-)
I haven’t searched out anything wrt Japanese meltdown influence on China. Expect that since JapAN is east of China, there is not a lot of influence?
~~~ModNote: Please find another way to abbreviate this. Please.~~~
Thanks, eCAHN — popcorn’s always welcome.
Yep — kind of pricey but so worth it IMO. Saw Levon Helm and John Hiatt last summer, under the roof, and it was incredible!
My side of the Big Isle received very little damage, Kona side had a couple of houses float out to sea, but, it was their dayam fault for building where they’d even built to begin with…! *gah*
Mostly, boat and harbor damage to the rest of the Isles…!
Always a pleasure, M’dear…! Aloha…! ;-)
The worst effects from Chernobyl were to the east. Earth’s rotation?
And prevailing winds?
Perios are the next best thing to life savers or personal trainers maybe. If the popcorn has real butter on it, I’ll lick it off. If no one’s looking.
hiya PPD, selise, everyone:)
In the Northern Hemisphere the winds currents blow eastward, in the Southern Hemisphere they blow in a Westerly direction…! The ITC is where all the fun begins…! ;-)
You’re right of course, it’d just be extremely hard for me to give up popcorn…would if I had to, though.
hey, I got one right at #81! Hi ET
~~~ModNote: Please find another way to abbreviate this. Thank you.~~~
so AD — it’s the old choice between chewing and eschewing, eh?
Aloha, ET…! How’s Wasilla tonite…?
nothing but prevailing westerlies standing between northern Japan and the nuclear fallout — and the pacific is a big a– body of water.
The worst effects from Chernobyl were to the east.
No no no no no! To the west. The west. Scandanavia, Europe. The west.
The only other two things I always confuse are left and right and up and down.
I saw Nancy Griffith and Manhattan Transfer there with pavilion seating. Wow. A nice lineup at The Barns including great works by the opera company. We are so lucky to have this incredible facility and the talent.
Windy. Has been clear and windy now since February 25th. We were down in Seattle for six days, where it was wet, wet, wet.
Good news – Strider the Lab is getting downright feisty, as he recovers from his January surgery. And happy – he takes his squeaky ball around and squeaks it in front of the cats, trying to intone different sounds for Mooch, who adores him, than for Powder, who doesn’t like him. Interesting.
The only available terrain…! Japan is extremely mountainous with little available area to build… Villages fill the small valleys in between and Cities compete with rice fields for what plains that do exist…!
Yes indeed! I didn’t know you were around here :-)
We’ll see how it shakes out. The lichens in Alaska were severely effected by Soviet H-bomb tests.
Great news about Strider…! *g*
Lucky for me having to give up popcorn coincided with movies getting suckey. But, if my doctor tells me I have to give up pizza, I’d have to give up that doctor.
I’m a West Coastie these days but I know the area very well. Did my share of working (loads of that) and living in the Metro.
hee hee — “Doc, I can’t hear you…”
well hello former neighbor :-)
I actually know this intellectually. So having to confront the geography with its consequences must be much more emotionally challenging for them than for me.
Still I live in a flood prone region, both in NYC, where my 5th floor apt may be above flood level but does that really matter? And in HRV, plenty of flooding but not gonna reach my house under the worst circumstances, I wonder, why would you voluntarly build in where you are sure to be wiped out in a tsunami.
For tomorrow. Gonna get gone tonight. Night night.
And a hat tip to you. I hope your county is no longer the fastest growing as you were fast growing out of water with that crazy housing boom in the early 2000s.
g’night eCAHN, and thanks for the popcorn — sweet dreams :-)
If you’ve not found it, you might want to check out Japan Broadcasting Co (NHK WORLD-English)
Home animals are ineffable treasures — I get your picture and the audio with it. Great stuff!
Ya nailed it, LL…! Congrats…!
Sweet Dreams, eCAHN…! *g*
I think that the growth has slowed down somewhat, thankfully, although all the growth has been concentrated in the eastern part of the county (basically east of RT 15). I escape to points west whenever I can for a sanity break (Middleburg, Upperville, Hillsboro)
Great minds, Sunny, that was my first link @61…! ;-)
Front Royal and Shenandoah National Park are choice. The national park’s restaurant is very upscale but not too expensive. The fall leaves in the park are awesome. Hey– you might have seen the cherry blossoms downtown!
The pumpkin hour approaches … niters everybody. Mañana.
Word is that the perp may be one of these people.
omg yes, love Front Royal and the park, and Skyline Drive for sure. Those overlooks, especially at the north end, take my breath away! And yes, I’ve done the cherry blossom tour tons of times (I’m a NoVA native) and it never fails to thrill, just so beautiful.
sleep well mzchief, great chatting with ya!
Yeah, I know…! 8-(
I wrote about it earlier today…!
There are some very pleasant, beautiful things about the area and some spectacular people there. I’d like to see the place shine the way it was meant to.
Nice talking with you too. Have a restful night. Adieu for now. :-d
Oh Tuttle… I missed your NHK link – should a known you’d be on it. Been running it in the background… painful listening.
Sunny, not sure if you saw my salutation @117 – just a quick word, kitteh is all curled up on the sofa and resting her head on a little red velvet pillow, just like a princess should :-)
CT — the NYT linked article is dire.
Last I’d heard they were expanding even larger evacuation zones around the Nuke plants…! 8-(
Which Grey Lady link…?
Thanks for reading my mind – was just getting ready to ask :-)
:-) she’s just as cute and sweet as ever.
Great article, CT.
Way too busy worrying about the nukes in Japan today to keep up. Wrote to Max Blumenthal, asking permission to reprint his story on the murders, and got into some of the details of what is beginning to look like a coverup.
Time for me to split — thank you CT, take care everyone, good night!
NYT — Japan Faces Potential Nuclear Disaster as Radiation Levels Rise
night LL – take care
The NYT has been all over the most recent info from Japan since earlier tonight CA time.
It Looks Grim.
The present front page NYT online has other stories of Japan too . . .
Really seems to me to be the most current info I could find tonite up till now.
Howdy CT, Pups . . . best to all.
Heh, we posted at the same time . . .
Don’t look good, does it . . .
Sweet dreams, LL…!
did we post the same link, Larue?
Yep . . . at the same time . . . lol
I read that as “it’s homoerotic”!
Ya both owe each other a beverage…! 8-)
Aloha, Larue…! The rain ease up..?
great minds run in the same gutter
Howdy again CT!
Last night GREAT rains, over an inch and a half thru early this moring.
Cloudy and sprinkles today, more later tonite and early Tues morn . . . and off and on thru Friday.
Folsom Lake Dam and Nimbus Dam (along American River) both opening up gates for release flows . . . . river ‘sposed to rise 10 feet by Wed . . . flooding low lying areas of the AR Bike Trail that runs from Old Sac to Nimbus Dam/Lake Notamas and then on up to Folsom Lake and dam . . . mostly closer to Old Sac.
Good winter so far! Watersheds are wet and reservoirs have filled up nicely across Nor Cal, Central Cal and So Cal . . . been many years for this.
“You’ve got your mind in the gutter!”
“Step off the curb and join me!”
I’m not worried about Japan and the reactors. I’m more concerned how the Koch brothers and the oil industry will use this to crank up gas prices. Instead of the US gov and industry cranking up green.
Ok, gotta run . . . best to all Pups, and hearts out to Japan . . . they need all the support they can get as this one ain’t over yet by any means . . .
Hey Ctuttle. Btw I loved the story about you row of banyan trees planted by celebrities. Very cool.
*heh* Ranging from Babe Ruth to then Senator Nixon, and, even Amelia Earhart…! ;-)
Since the reactor failures in Japan hit the MSM, Oppenheimer’s words have been haunting me ….
“I suppose we all felt that, one way or the other.”
But it combines two things I love, trees and celebrities!
I think that this is cooler than the walk of the stars.
night all – be well
Pleasant Dreams, PPD…!
Altho, no new Banyans have been planted since the 60′s…!
Nite all. Thanks ct.
My pleasure, Sunny…! Sleep well…! *g*
Well, I shall bid ya’ll a fond adieu…! Mahalo for the great conversation…! Aloha Oe…! *g*
