2Cellos — Welcome To The Jungle.
What’s on your mind?
Good evening, Suzanne. You’ve had a busy few days. Are you snuggled in at the coast again?
Well that’s a nuisance. 2Cellos isn’t available in my country. In my part of the world, we had a lively lightning storm, so who else but Lou Christie fits the bill?
hey dearie — how’s the so central ca coast tonight? i had a great day of sunshine today *and* its supposed to stay sunny all week
hey mr why — they have videos up at their site — can you see it there? how was your day?
*heh* Welcome To The Jungle indeedy, Suz…! ;-)
Wait a minute! Here’s 2Cellos!
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight? was wondering who would link to the guns and roses original first :) shudda figured you would be right on that
totally strange mr why — that’s the same video i embedded and linked up top
Cool, At least you’re seeing some sun these days, Suz…! *g*
You know it, M’dear…! ;-)
Still walking on air from chatting with Jane earlier today…! *sigh*
They start off as buskers, and end up as stage stars! What a duo. Thanks, Suzanne.
was cloudy sunday but has been nice since. weather dood and weather doodette are both saying its gonna be sunny all week so i think it may actually happen. i had 4 days of sunshine last week, breaking the old ‘record’ of 3.
hey ce — glad ya liked it. how’s ohio tonight?
Still in PA, just leaving my folks and brother, and will drive home to Cleveland tomorrow. I’m telling you, the insane traffic here in lovely Pennsylvania is just fucking insane. I’ve never feared so many Mack trucks.
oh crap, i forgot about your trip. sorry ce. oh yuck i don’t envy that drive back to ohio
at least its summer and ya don’t have to worry about ice and winter storms

My brother’s house for sale”
he is moving? is he going to another state?
New popcorn experiment: I added the juice of a wedge of lime, along with olive oil and salt. Very nice.
Shoot, I can’t attach this on MrCE’s computer. Yes, they want to sell. Once I’m home, I’ll send the ad from my computer.
hip hop violin
kewl, are they gonna move closer to you?
Goodnight All. See you Wednesday LLN.
Did you use sel gris?
hey dave, sorry, didn’t see ya come in. how ya doing tonight?
Bummers, CE…! Safe journeys…! *g*
No, just NaCl + I. No yuppie fish poop added.
hey tuez — how ya doing tonight?
I is OK. It was too hot to function today, but I managed to do a run to the landfill. Seven months worth of smelly rubbish in 90 degree heat. But that little task is over until the dead of winter.
Yeah but it’s some damn fine yuppie fish poop.
It’s the thought of added yuppie bird poop that gives me pause. Okay, NOT.
yikes — smelly and hot is always a bad combo *shrudder*
I’m doin’ fine tonight Suz.
This is still my fave G-N-R tune…! ;-)
Fine clear night with vibrant stars, though.
No yuppie fish poop added.
Ain’t no fish poop in fresh Sea Salt, either…! ;-)
doing well thanks. have a friend visiting tonight so let me apologize up front if i seem distracted…. she arrived today and heads out tomorrow so i’m multi-tasking visiting with her and with ya’ll.
evening, CT, Suzzz
I now understand why wearing plaid and tartan together is a fashion faux pas.
tis 57 and clear skies here
hey ppd — how was your day?
Turning in. As Scarlett says, tomorrow is another day.
Give her my alohas, Suz…! And, Alohas, PPD…! ;-)
I’d settle for 80 something.
Evidently hitting the correct reply button is not part of my skill set.
how bad was it today? into triple digits?
…a fashion faux pas.
Most def, eh…? ;-)
i do that one all the time — usually replying to the comment above the one i was trying to reply to
Na, never hits triple digits here, or in the SE for that matter (okay, maybe once every 10 years).
It’s just that we have 90s day after day for a good 4 months, if not more. After awhile it just gets tiring.
hey senator — how’s sac tonight?
Good evening, Suz. Welcome back, hope your weekend with family was great.
ca weather was boring like that — i’m enjoying having all four seasons, for a change. but i do admit that snow can be one hella motivator for moving to warmer climes. i understand the appeal having done 3 winters here on the caost. i don’t do 13 degrees outside very well at all
It is still Sac! And I am still here.
Hey Mary that Mary Poppins pic you did was great. I didn’t see it until late, and didn’t comment on it because of that.
hey past — how ya doing tonight? i had a great time and the pics (and video) are up at my place
ditto what tuez said mary — that was out-fucking-standing!
Well, the weather the other 8 months is close to perfect, so…
Thanks! I had fun doing it. I was pretty amazed at the reception it got.
Doin’ ok tonight. Had an appointment to get scoped earlier late this morning, been resting most of the day.
And since he seemed to put his foot up on an amp or something onstage, I’m guessing he committed a kilt wearing faux pas too. No guts.
ouch — everything turn out ok or are they making ya wait for the results?
i don’t do 13 degrees outside very well at all
*heh* Wuss…! ;-)
hey! at least i admit it dood *lmao*
Did you get a copy of the pics? That seems to be all the rage. Regardless of what was scoped.
Unless I’m skiing, I don’t do well outside much below 50.
Maybe because the only time I’m correctly dressed for the cold, is when I’m skiing.
Went ok, no hiccups. But it’ll be a long time before I can stomach the thought of drinking orange Gatorade again.
my sister and my mom both love it hot. me, i’m the odd man out. i fit in well here in the pnw where i don’t melt when it rains and i’ve not wished for a/c once since i’ve been here (3 years this month)
True, I certainly don’t like it either…! *g*
my youngest girl still hates bananas after having to drink 2 bottles of banana flavored contrast medium when she was a pre-teen. the fake flavors medical procedures use really suck. ya would think what with how much they charge for the crap, it would taste better.
My husband was most excited about being encouraged to fart in public, with impunity, following his procedure. That made it all worthwhile for him.
No, no pics. Wouldn’t want any photos hanging around that could be used against me in the future. My kids would use them for amusement, those nasty little brats :)
If it weren’t for the lack of sunshine, I think I’d love living in the PNW. I rather prefer it between 60 and 80. But I like my sunshine.
i gotta admit, in ca i took sunshine for granted. i have a new appreciation for it since being up here. this year was particularly bad and i admit, i have whined about it
Nice cello music, Suz, thanks!
I love how serious this guy looks…and love the Godfather Waltz
My bro in law keeps his pics in his wallet, so he can whip them out. My husband’s doctor actually apologized, up front, that she wouldn’t sent him any, because there was nothing to see.
But he does have his knee scope pics to show. Do you know how benign and pretty arthritis looks?
I can understand that, banana is such a strong flavor. I love all flavors of Gatorade, just won’t feel like doing the orange for a while.
hey margot — how ya doing tonight? godfather waltz *has* to be played on accordion.. no other instrument could do it justice
Doesn’t sound like arthritis would look very good; I can only imagine it would look like bones that look eroded/deformed.
Hey Suz an firegods. The crush of summer continues. But i know that in the mid of Sept i will be in Cali for a reunion of great folks who are my longest best friends and their friends and it’s all about the fifty-something crowd, so a fiddy-somptin party. Most of us know each other but at a different time an place. Now we hope to all meet at the same time. Could be the last time we have the chance so we are going for it. Folks from both coasts. You know the music will be good and the stories elaborate. I don’t diary but will make exception after this.
I had a swollen, red hot painful finger joint that I showed to the doc years ago. He said
Let’s have it x-rayed.” So we did and he showed me a bony hand with a swollen joint and said, “You have arthritis. See me in 3 months.” Wait…Why do I have it, what caused it, what treatment.? Sheeit.
Stayed up late to finish writing the contract language for a little project proposal. I get creative describing the scope of work I promise to perform for X amount of money and I generally get to this kind of work when it semi-unconsciously rolls out of my head.
Entertainment up until now has been watching a half dozen baby tree toads plucking moths off the outside of the window as the moths hit the glass flying in toward the light from my desk lamp.
I am easily amused.
I should post my husband’s pics online, a quick google search didn’t find any “real” pics of a knee scope. Anyway, arthritis in the knee looks like a cirrus cloud and some people have described it as looking like bits of crab meat hanging off the cartilage. It honestly looks rather peaceful, although maybe it’s just the camera angle.
hey homer — how’s homer tonight? where in ca are ya going be? northern or southern?
hey nonq — how ya doing?
Doing well, thanks Suz.
mine looked like crab meat.. that was the best description of the pics i saw after my scopes (6). orthopedist didn’t show me pics of the 2 zipper surgeries, including the total knee replacement
Awesome, homeroid…! So it’s Game On…? ;-)
Hi people! Here’s my favorite 2 cellos. Best version of http://www.wimp.com/twocellos/.
Done via arthroscopy, arthritis really looks benign. I was really, really surprised.
hey loohoo — how’s socal tonight – or are ya in the desert?
See, I’m not crazy, Suz has seen the same thing.
Two winters ago, most of our tree frogs got killed off. It really bums me out.
congrats on snagging the happy lucky 100 tuez!!!
*heh* Aren’t we all…? ;-)
I’m doing OK, we had a much needed steady rain for the last twelve hours, the temps are near normal and down to the low 70s at night.
I was trying to figure out if there was a lesson to be learned by watching the toads leap for a moth, letting go of their grip on the glass surface and falling about 16 inches to teh window sill. Hard way to earn a meal. Climbing back up and doing it one more time.
What’s the handicap, since I’m 3 time zones away? Need that info for playing lotto later.
yay for rain and better temps! i remember dissecting frogs from high school biology classes — their brains didn’t take up much space
http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandrascakes/2748410236/lightbox/ on the 100, Tuez!
Got back from Palm Springs this AM, Suz. Bill paying time…
openhope says that when ya snag the happy lucky 100, that’s your cue to get a lotto ticket
i don’t know nuttin’ about handicappin’
Very wet today. Looks like SF or Oakland not sure the venue yet. Not sure how many yet. Looks to grow quickly. Knowing my friends i dont care if we hold it in a vacant lot.
i always major seriously dislike that time of the month… i like the way my account looks before the money goes elsewhere :) i’ve got most of my bills so i pay them online. the only checks i’m writing is to token’s groomer every 6 weeks and my monthly check to the dentist paying off my plate.
Well, that was embarrassing.
Not how I would imagine it to look, but still sounds yucky.
the bay area in september really is a lovely time of year. still lotsa summer left before the cold rains come in november.
I’ve been paying the bills online since 1995. Love it. Just have a couple I have to pay via USPS.
Is the ‘crab meat’ the inflammation part, or is it because the arthritis tears off pieces of cartilage?
Sadly, last nite, nobody gave me a heads up, and I inadvertently snagged it…! Happy, I was not…! 8-(
Are those your cakes? Tres cool.
I did bills yesterday. Hate it, but at least the month is covered, already, since my husband is unemployed and I’ve got a friend’s kid holed up on my couch.
i dunno — that’s an excellent question. i had both the kinda damage where it turned to mush and the kinda damage where it chunked off.
Ha and if I didn’t have this light on they would be probably be hunting somewhere else. I’m timing the refresh rate here at almost four minutes until the little MyFDL logo returns and pressing the Reply button sticks to the comment.
I’m saying good morning to ya, I have to print, proof-read and meet with these prospective clients later in the day. I just have to decide how much I think they will tolerate for the up front payment on the proposal before I fill in that boiler-plate space. niters.
g’nite nonq — when that happens, try clearing your cache — that usually speeds it back up to normal
I think the inflammation comes from the bone-on-bone. The arthritis, then, would be what is torn off, but I’m not a doctor. It could just as easily be the opposite.
Don’t forget the BS fee.
Oh, no. Not my cake! My daughter can make gorgeous cakes though.
that was a particularly stunning cake you selected tonight loohoo — almost too pretty to eat
G’nite Suz and pups…! I’ve got a long day on tap tomorrow…! Sweet Dreams and all…! *g*
holy moly loohoo…. righteous indignation
tis about time for me to turn back into a pumpkin peeps. thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight.
Crap Tut i thought it included you. But Hey Tut Hows The clime tonight. We all know it is better than whatever but we all know you are stuck on an island. Our shit stinks but we have much land to spread it. Only now most want to do that in a good way. Yeah for the general populous.
Apropos of nothing but I just got here, but I just got through watching “The Colbert Report,” and it seems to have been “spread the lie that the only solution to our absolutely must fix it now debt problem is to trash Medicare and/or Social Security” night. There was David Leonhardt of the NYT who apparently came on strictly to repeat (twice) that the only way to fix the above-mentioned problem was to cut SS & Medicare and raise taxes. Followed by some 30-year vet of DC journalism (which, now I think of it, would put him there during the Reagan years of the news creating his Teflon image). His attack point was Medicare, which is completely unsustainable, and no mention of how even more completely unsustainable private insurance is.
I don’t usually watch Colbert, as I avoid the gasbags he satirizes, so the humor isn’t all there for me. Is this representative of Colbrt now, or did I just hit a bad night?
You really need to study more before commenting here. The Colbert report is not fact. It is a comedy show. One must differentiate betwixt that and MSM.
Hence my use of the word “satirizes.”
Colbert just let these assertions stand, unchallenged. No swipe, no nothing. As I said, I don’t watch him very often, so if he has a subtext going, I don’t see it. If his schtick is to consistently invite totally-wrong people on, and his regular audience knows this, it’s pretty predictable, not funny, and the totally-wrong folks should twig to it pretty fast. Wrong doesn’t always mean stupid.
Fast food doesn’t have much shelf life.
All I know is that the MSM has their talking points from Washington and the biggest one is that entitlements have got to go. There is simply no other choice and no way to correct this problem without it.
Matthews had some CNBC “economist” who insisted that these guys have to be brave and do what’s needed(cutting entitlements). He had on a columnist Eugene…something or other, I’ve seen him before and he described the guy as progressive and asked his opinion and lo and behold—he agreed.
Yep—-the entitlement attack is now in full force working its way into the media to gain the public support for what’s coming and save a few jobs—in congress and maybe the White House.
