The B-52s — Love Shack, at their induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, September, 2000.
What’s on your mind?
hey wmd — how ya doing tonight?
hanging in there
hanging in is hanging on…. any luck in your search?
It’s hard to find the time…
time *sigh* never enough of it
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! Congrats, wmd…! ;-)
we posted the same song at the same time.. that’s gonna be worth more than just a drink of your choice dood
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight?
hiya Suzzz – firegods
OK, let’s drink.
hey ppd – how ya doing tonight?
rusted! how ya doing tonight dearie?
good and exhausted.
working a lot. which is good….but exhausting.
pretty good, thanks — hope you’re feeling well, too
Hiya CT, Dearie
That’s a shiny hubcap right there…! ;-)
i’m gonna slowly integrate small walks back into my schedule and see how the knee does … my taking it easy since october has *knocking on wood* eased up its complaints
I’m confident (cause you are a fighter/survivor/warrior) that you are going to do fine and re-gain your mobility and strength!
I’ve been doing workers compensation depositions and wow, the laws are getting more hostile than ever. Hope you got out of the system intact.
I got me a Chrysler, it’s as big as a whale…
Knock on wood
i got hosed before i got out but i got out… ah-nold’s revision of the workers comp laws took away my previously granted lifetime medical but… i got out but i was unable to afford living in ca once i was out.
i have no desire to live in ca again
But, Suz, aren’t they about to open up your knee once again, shortly…?
hey tt — how ya doing tonight? the whole shack shimmies!
And it has only gotten worse. There is something going on in America today that really troubles me…. the dismissal of the average working person. If we don’t stand up, we will be mowed down. Makes me very sad. Really.
its complicated tut…. its not quite one year from the surgery and that’s the *earliest* they could tell if the bone was dead or alive
…i have no desire to live in ca again…
*wowsers* Are ya totally sure, Suz…? ;-)
we peons dont matter for anything … except to be there to be peed on
About to collect my jukebox money and call it a night. The lyrics to “Love Shack” are going to echo through my mind for hours to come.
Good night, everyone!
Suz – Walkin’ After Midnight
hey bev — *swooning* you know i loves me some patsy
how’s dc tonight?
Quiet as far as I can see, dark, 37 degrees.
CT – any tsunami out there tonight?
My condolences to the Solomonese and all the nearby Isles…! Here’s some CC footage of that 8.0 tremblor…!
tis a balmy 43 outside. last night i only got down to 42 — first time its been that warm for a low in a while…
whoa… it really built up in strength as it went on….
Aloha, Bev…! We did have a little scare there…! ;-)
Wow – that was a long roller of an earthquake. I’ve been through a few in CA living / growing up there.
Glad you are safe and sound.
Good night Dearie and pups,
WI is trying to force a six-week wait to begin collecting benefits, and is upping weekly job searches required to stay eligible from two to four. Seasonal workers will need to drive ninety miles just to find that many potential places to ask about work. If I was a complete ass and a jerk, I could start a business of charging a fee to take job search requests from people wanting to retain their UC benefits and someone is likely to do this if it is not already being done.
hey nonq — how ya doing tonight?
I’m certainly glad I didn’t have to pack up again…! I’ve experienced my fair share of 7+’s…! ;-)
Up early today, got some work completed, tired enough for a nap after supper and wide awake at the moment. pretty good all in all, thank you.
Nice to read you are going to try your knee a little more. All the best with rehab, there.
I think we are, all Americans, in for some more stiffing by the PTB until we get together and stand up … and I don’t know what will kick that off. I loved that Wisconsinites stood up to their deviant governator, but I don’t know if they had any power. We are all going to have to stand up for each other. I see some trying times ahead. But, a la Norske, I keep my pitchfork sharpened. I’m not going to be the leader, but I am looking for the leader.
I’m getting sleepy. Good night all.
Carol King – I Feel the Earth Move
I’ve been through a few big ones – Los Angeles in the 1980s
*heh* I’d a been hugging that bar too, Loo Hoo…! ;-)
hey loohoo — how ya doing tonight?
I am pressing for some local government level resolutions of non-support for Walker/ALEC legislation, to put shame on State level R politicians to drop there blind obedience to their party platform. Working several angles hard. I have not removed my, “Stop Walker,” button since I pinned it on at the beginning of collecting recall signatures.
i had just started my shift when loma prieta hit… shake rattle and roll
Pleasant dreams, wmd…!
You are, for sure, one of the good ones, nonq. If enough of us good ones could just find someone with a bit of power to lead… We really do need another MLK or someone who speaks for justice.
Lordy. I’ve been in earthquakes too, but the one CTut showed seemed to go on forever!
All’s well here in San Diego. Are you feeling okay? Sounds good if you’re thinking of wandering off. AVOID ICE!
we are supposed to have another gloriously sunny day sat — i’m thinking of trying a walk down to the corner and seeing how it feels when i get there…. i think being a couch (and now recliner) potato these past 4 months has given it time to settle down a little more and me time to get used to its limitations and find work arounds…
when its wet i hesitate going out at all… and if its icy i don’t go beyond my covered porch
Exciting wasn’t it? I think that was the earthquake when I was working the fed prison in LA – went on forever, long roller. I was locked in (at work) with 1000+ felons and staff. Saw a lot of people running from the buildings into “the yard”.
Was wading through wendydavis post on drone justification white papers and it will certainly be harder to find anyone willing to carry the torch. Bernie Sanders was on Tavis an hour ago, stating problems he thinks Obama should address in which order. I think that is the best we are going to get, speeches with some common sense content.
loma prieta was the world series quake…. what happens in a prison during a quake – wow, i had not given that any thought. how forking scary!
All Shook Up
I remember that one – heard about it right after. Can’t think of the name of the one that hit LA in the mid-80s.
northridge? or was that the sylmar quake?
It’s a mess, isn’t it. Hope you and the dear teen are doing well. That’s what it comes down to nowadays… families looking out for each other until some force comes along to bring us into the bigger picture. Meanwhile, I care for my kids and their kids and work as best I can. Life in its fullness.
shakin’ all over
Oooh dawgie, what fun that musta been…! *g*
shake shake shake
There was a 6.6 earthquake in the Los Angeles area in maybe 1971 that went on for maybe 50 seconds…. which felt like forever. I grew up first in CA and experienced earthquakes and then came back as a young woman and got to do the shimmy again. I still prefer an earthquake to a tornado. But, hey, that’s just me.
Good. Take it real easy and build up to longer walks. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the semi-freedom!
with tornadoes ya get a wee bit of warning…. i sure wish there was an early warning system for quakes
Thanks, that’s where it starts for sure. She’s number one in her computer science class, tutoring others having trouble, informally, and has developed a couple other healthy interests. She is producing online videos that have been used by a couple of places she frequents, twice this winter screaming with excitement as she got 6-800 tweets an hour about how others liked here artistic submissions. Would she show the work to me? Not yet.
token will for sure… poor little guy has been a couch potato right next to me and is getting rather round…. he’s back on diet dog food
Whittier 1987 sounds right
Are you thinking of 1970? That was a biggie.
speaking of token, he’s wanting me to let him save a tree while i keep a sharp lookout for raindrops…..
thank you for hanging out with me tonight… yesterday was the one year anniversary of the fall — i would not have gotten through those tough times without each and every one of you. thank you just doesn’t seem to convey just how much that means to me…
I heard this week on NPR that there is an early warning system that will give you a 30 to 60 second warning prior to an earthquake. I laughed out loud. That gives you enough time to say OMG in full vocalization and maybe to get under a door frame. I’m hoping the tsunami warning that is signaged at the end of my street and dropping the price of my property will give me enough time to scramble over the dunes to higher ground. Hope is such an adorable emotion.
Yes! The adrenaline was pumping for several reasons. The fences stayed up and everyone was on good behavior that day, thank goodness. No injuries that I remember.
LOL – you got that right, time to hang on.
My daughter’s neighbor’s kid graduated well from high school but just couldn’t see college in his future, so he designed a video to show how to win some internet game…. and earned a quick million dollars. His parents are flummoxed. It will be interesting to see what he does next.
Good night, take care, pats to Token
Night, Suz. Sleep well.
Time to turn in here too.
Good Night, thanks for letting me stop by and join in.
That’s what I hope can happen, here, some sort of job prospect and technical school, regular college is not likely with the funding end.
Today we had a steady four inch snow-fall, very little wind, everything a clean white frosting. Took an hour walk when the sun popped out about 3:00 PM, swept the steps and part of the drive. No quakes or shakes or tsunami to report.
Life is a wonderful adventure. Enjoy.
Sweet dreams, Suz, Bev, and, pups…!
I’m doing serious looooong reading, interest on healing. I’m going to guinea pig myself in 2 days when the MMS kit arrives. I’ve purchased vitamin d3- LANOLIN[ sheep give us lanolin from their wool and we don't kill them to have this vitamin d3, which we need.. based on the key to human body needs/integration into our system. Which is so cool, to gather a necessary ingredient to human health, our bodies need the lanolin and if you're vegan [no animals die] and going for the plant based vitamin d3, you’re going to lose. But, extremes will have to weather the storm.Lanolin is gathered from sheep wool, no animals are harmed, all animals are friends. Especially, my friends. I used to babysit sheep to keep my pony happy. But, they were fucking obsessed with food and not that charming,imho. Sheep have this weird thing; when they get an idea it’s the ONLY thought they have. It’s fucking annoying, because they could decide the IDEA was to storm the fucking food bins. It’s like feeding your pet and all the sudden they decide to fuckin’ take over the operation.
fucking sheep, I only babysat them because my pony was so lonely. they were such shitty friends.
:] country stories
I used to have 6 deer gather around me when I fed my ponies and pimped them on the apples on the trees they couldn’t reach. I looked like Mother Nature’s bitch!!!!! People were amazed. I was aware of being a Promo Bitch, something outside the ordinary, because animals have always been my most trusted friends. It’s Human’s who are in awe of communication with our “friends on this planet”. It’s humans I have to learn to trust. My #1 motto as an animal person , and later as a Mother was ” Don’t Break Trust”. It was the basic rule in the education/learning my children aquired as Unschoolers. Lanolin is not a problem, it’s a solution. Sheep are our friend. We just don’t want to act like them. Because we’re the shepherds of our destiny.
Fuck, I was this mouthy at Women’s Poker tonight,too. I hate when I’m on a mission all by myself. Nothing really matters.
“Nothing Really Matters” pigrim brothers Australian musicians. I don’t link ,but their song is sotimely and a song I keep waking up in the middle of the night and it’s already running thru my mind.
I’m so sorry,Suzanne. The time allowed to edit my comment has expired. I was going to delete. Apparently, my No High cookies aren’t that no high. :0
Pigram brothers, “Nothing Really Matters”, best version in mho, is from the Mad Bastards soundtrack. if I could link I would, but if I could link I fear dissolving into the ethers of the internet. From shear curiosity. Best to know one’s limitations.
hey openhope — sorry i missed you last night…
