Ravi Shankar — Ravi Shankar on The Dick Cavett Show.
What’s on your mind?
Hey Suz. Got to watch Ravi watch his daughter perform in San Diego.
hey loohoo — how’s the southland tonight?
Aloha, Suz, Loo Hoo, and lln pups…!
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight?
Howdy, Suz and CTuttle! Beautiful here in Leucadia. The rain has stopped here, and looking forward to window shopping with girlfriends tomo.
my drizzle is tappering off — supposed to clear up even and have sunshine this weekend. way warmer today — 47 for a high
Hey, all. We’ve had a whole day of no rain. And I did nothing constructive!!
hey openhope — that’s fucking outstanding! are ya gonna try for a two-fer tomorrow?
Hey Suz an Tut an Loo Hoo. Got me a day off and crap if it aint rainin. Had some snow a few daze ago but it had to turn to rain. Normally i would not think much of it but the temp swings are just not right. Then i am not shoveling so life is not that bad.
More doom and gloom…! *sigh*
Being so late in the month, Breakfast is Supper, tonite…! Bacon and eggs, hashbrowns, and, flap-jacks…! ;-)
hey homeroid — how ya been dood?
breakfast for dinner is still one of my favorite meals…. and you have a lot more breakfast in yours than i usually have in mine… i am a solo and i don’t eat much and you are feeding a family.
I love days that are lazy! After so many years of working the ass off…
doing nothing – magnanimously!
Thought i saw you was dealin with some stuff. I trust you will deal with it as best as could be. You have my energy with you.
Hey, homeroid! Weather is so twisted, how can anyone plan? May as well lay low.
Forkin workin allllll the time. The other freakin drivers want to travel and visit and expect me to just fill in. The pay back is a snot.
i’ve got spring bulbs trying to come up loohoo and my fuchsias were blooming like spring – clear up to the hard freeze
Doing nothing enthusiastically is my favorite thing! But I’ve been working again, and I kinda like that, too. Beefing up my eventual SS I hope!
at least rain is easier to drive in than snow is… or do i have that wrong (being as i’ve not driven in the snow)
Tomorrow I’m going on a hunt for a seamstress/tailor who can create a jacket out of a dream. Our daughter’s getting married next summer we’re having a bunch of fun!!
The women are going forth to nail down the Jacket Problem and have lunch. And talk shoes. God, I love shoes!
I gave them up decades ago, except for my kinda sexy Ariat horse woman muck boots. It never really goes away, that shoe thing…….
hey dearie — its all about finding the balance that works for you … how’s the ‘nard tonight?
OMG! i had such fun shopping for my mother of the bride shoes….. congrats!
Got home from two days of work just at sunset…. and loved settling in at the ‘nard. I do love to work. But I also love to just veg. I’m in such a nice place right now where I can do both!
*sunset* i miss those sunsets at the coast. tis impossible to be stressed when looking at one of them
Dude! That’s my favorite meal, and my professional cook friends favorite meal. all my friends,actually. Brinner rules!
The only time an average human can eat that kind of food is as a main meal. imo. But, I used to be a coffee and cigarette breakfast person………
I believe the world would be a better place if we honored Brinner.
The rain turns snow into ice. Thus folks pay to have me drive. Why ruin their expensive truck when a few bucks gets a cab that is expendable.
I have a question. I have a white mold on the soil in my house plants and what should-need-to do.
oh fuck – even i know that’s not good. i avoid ice. is it a cottony kinda mold?
That was me last night flying solo: goat cheese eggs, bacon and chorizo sausage patties. Salad.
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
Wonderful, girlfriend! I can’t grow anything in palm springs, but I’ll try here. I’m thinking hydrangias.
Yum. Perfect dinner….. in my humble opinion!
i’ve got some in pots on my porch. they die back each winter and come back up again in the spring. i’ve always loved them — called them wedding flowers as a wee thing because they looked like a bouquet to my wee eyes
Sorta cottany just more like short velvet.
YOu have fun, openhope! Wonderful news.
Rain turning into snow. High today 59, low is coming at 29. The snow is gone, and mud looms large. It is very, very late for us, MrCE just home now from NYC. He says that the city is dirty.
I love this dinner, every season. Sometimes I add baked cherry tomatoes.
and its on the dirt, not on the plants?
Perfect balance, sweet Dearie.
how was his trip?
Hey Loo Hoo!
Really wonderful. He spoke at the New York Academy of Medicine about the history of auscultation — using stethoscopes as diagnostic tools.
My coworkers always laugh – the history of medicine has no respect in America.
Yes only on the dirt. Thought i would ask you as you are here in the NW mold capital of north America.
Hey to you , girlscout! I’m having to replace an upstairs deck…
Evening Mme Suzanne, all. Fading fast here, way past my bedtime, but always so nice to hang here for a bit. Solo cooking (not to mention solo dishwashing) can be a drag, but I’m LLN’ing for a couple minutes instead of making a hot chocolate.
i find it fascinating… i was watching downton abbey sunday nite and was horrified to see two doctors standing by doing nothing while lady sybil died. the juxtaposition between then and now was striking to me
I fear that our streets will not dry before the snow falls — dreaded black ice underneath innocent looking snow. Still — better than mud.
sorry dood – my mold knowledge is limited and the only thing i thought of was that cottony stuff that ya get when ya have spider mites but that’s on the plant…
Really? A sleeping porch deck?
hey hotflash — ooooh hot chocolate! do ya put a marshmallow in it?
You know, we googled the hell out of eclampsia, and I still don’t understand why she died. Wiki didn’t tell us why.
Actually, we’re in the Best Of Worlds…dressing the Bride. Much more fun. I’m putting off thinking about my stuff until the very last minute. Then I’ll panic, probably. It’s a Pacific Northwest Wedding. Shoes require being capable of rugged terrain. Or sink into the turf. It’s going to be on the bluff we lived on for 6 years overlooking the Sound. Beautiful southern cliff. Prevailing wind. Out doors.
What did they know in those days about bringing down blood pressure? But, wow, the elite versus the down-to-earth country doctor…..
Even today, pre-eclampsia can be a killer. My own daughter ran such a high blood pressure that the ER took all the lights down and did everything to cool the moment. Pretty scary stuff.
my guess was some sort of permanent seizure and she asphyxiated during the seizure… what i don’t understand is why the seizure didn’t end when she went unconscious… they didn’t make it sound as if she stroked out or something… she clearly died from being unable to breathe
CE i would take the mud over ice anyday. I tire of hearing of folks who slip and fall. Especially the elderly. They get hurt the worst.
I need to find out the fine timeline when women stopped having babies at home, and more in the hospital. I suspect that it differed in various countries, with the USA being the most progressive.
after jen had her dress and accessories picked out is when we did the mother of the bride shopping — for my dress and shoes… she went to make sure the outfit went well with her colors and because i have the fashion sense of a preschooler. i was really spoiled by 24 years of wearing a uniform…
Lovely! I bought flats that matched my mom-of-the-bride dress to wear to the mountain top for my daughter’s wedding….. put on the heels later. I still love those flats! Such a beautiful and warm event.
is why i avoid walking on it — much less driving on the nasty stuff
Yes, it freaked me out.
i snorted at the argument against taking her to the hospital because of the risk of infection there
Yes, and that would include me!
me too… the suddenness of it and then the total silence… no music, no nothing — the shock was horrific. and then poor granny walking in the next morning…
It’s an upstairs deck. A nice sized deck, but the whole thing needs to be rebuilt.
Many people believed this — it was assumed that people went to a hospital to die. That said, they sent the cook to the hospital for a cataract operation without thinking a thing!
yuck — that can be expensive
My theory is ; if you’re not overly attached it’s best to place it in a plastic bag and dispose of it. Unless you have fires and can burn it.
Oh I love PBS Masterpiece Theatre. Goodnight all! Thanks for the fun.
and their own house was involved in treating wounded soldiers… i had thought this argument had already been resolved… but i guess for women it had not
remember when shirley mcclaine said they did childbirth much better in the states when she arrived this year — wonder if that is what she meant
And yet one of my daughters had her first child in hospital… and it was an okay but not stellar experience…. and then she had two at home with a midwife and a birthing tub and those births were wonderful for her and for her family….so who knows what’s right?
And i would escort you to your door as i do the elderly here who have no ice cleets for their shoes as they should because their children are thoughtless pricks.
MrCE says as late as 1960′s that it was not safe. Man, that is a shock.
I thought it was Shock. System failure. wouldn’t bet money on that, actually.
We are all helping one another, really!
i had my first with midwives at a hospital and my second with an obgyn at a diff hospital. very different experiences…. and it wasn’t just the 11 and 1/2 years in between either.
whoa it is.. thanks mr ce
i had not thought of that….
I know young women who have been given wrong medication during childbirth in hospital and women who have had internal organs nicked and such. Who is to say where a woman is safer? I’d like to see real studies. Home birth seems to be relatively safe … as long as hospital care is available for those few cases that need it.
I can’t imagine a life without Masterpiece Theatre. It’s always been a constant in my life. For my whole life.
I actually have issues on the pronunciation of “data” because of that.
Hope newtonusr’s okay. Anyone know?
Wind is roaring here. I know that I said goodnight earlier, but goodnight all and it is now 33 degrees.
i had a text conversation with him earlier in the month — he said he is traveling a lot but doing ok
g’nite for realsies ce
I’m so thankful I found a wonderful midwife for both my kids births, who insisted in being in a hospital setting, because seconds count. It all depends on too much not to have good equipment right there. In the best facility you can access.
This ain’t no foolin’ around.
I hear you. But I also experienced, myself, the insanity of a nasty doctor and a short staff and having to fight to not be shot up with some horse needle full of whatever just to have a baby….. sometimes hospital deliveries are not right for mother and child.
LLN what a wonderful place. Thanks Suz an nite.
this is true
I’m not sure I would have survived my birthing experiences without suction. Who knows. Sometimes bone structure’s a killer and you’re on the “Died In Childbirth” list. But it’s all a crap shoot, this reproduction experience.
tis about time for me to head out too. there is a tree outside that token must save
g’nite all — thank you for hanging out with me tonight
Sweet dreams, homeroid.
Oh, the new delicacy Fish is Slime Eels. I’m going to start knowing a lot about Slime Eels whether I want to or not. Hot market. My son’s heading out to fish Slime Eels after the crabbing season’s done.
live and learn
Good for him. One of my favs!
Dang, I just finished up ‘Brinner’, and everybody done headed off to bed already…! ;-)
Sweet dreams, Suz…! Twas a good nite…!
Sweet dreams,Suzanne. nite, Token.
I’m going to hit the couch and watch BBC and regain my sense of world balance./s
Sweet dreams, CTuttle.
Sweet dreams, open, and, congrats on snagging the 99…! ;-)
