Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
From: VirginiaTam
Date: 20 Apr 14 - 11:05 AM

Warm felicitations to all my shipmates and wishes for warm sunshine and healing rains of Spring. Sorry I have not posted of late. It has been very occasional lurking only until cognitive functioning kicked in again.

Still on anti-TNF with no physical relief. Just finished course of anti-biotics and still on anti-histamin. In the last week and bit, I've been on every anti-Tamara meds going. I know because still having allergic reaction to something. But it is not terrible. Bit of discoid rash on my face. Not itchy, just .... weird.

Otherwise I am good. I have a job that is interesting and provides much distraction from pain. Outside of work I am keeping busy with steampunk creations, inventions and modifications.

I finally put my pride aside and purchased a very small mobility scooter. One that can live in the boot of the car. I figured since the anti-TNF does not appear to be relieving the physical downside of illness, then I may as well buy the scooter now, while I am still working and have money to pay for it. I got the VAT amnesty which brought the cost down a bit.

Anyway back to steampunking modifications. I am currently working on making steampunk camouflage for the scooter when I take it to SP events. I have a veritible storm of ideas brewing. I've seen some pretty mean looking machines among SP friends. I want someting really unique. Something along the lines of the love child of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and HG Wells Time Machine. I already have this garden ornament clock/bar ometer/thermometer thing Tam's walker/transit chair which I have punked up even further. Kept the clock in the centre but outer rings have time travel gauges. One starts at "BANG" and finsihes with "RESTAURANT, END OF UNIVERSE." The other is a Chronogovernor. Well it is a start.

From Late Feb to just before last weekend in March I worked on new Far East steampunk outfit and my pride and joy, these Octopus Puppet twins Oskarpus Krakenworthy the Third and Oktavia Pussywillow Krakenworthy

The eyes took the most time. I had to create a socket to place them in then attach a fingerpuppet tube to back. So their eyes move with intenral manipulation. Adorably creepy. Oskarpus now has a little gun and holster and Oktavia will have a small porcelain Victorian doll.

So I have been very busy, but brain has been quite nonverbal while it has been creating and solving problems.

Hugs to all.

Have typed posts on successive days that haven't posted. I suspect the problem is I have too many windows open moving among different sites and have forgotten to hit submit before heading back to some place such as youtube to listen to music.

Spring is here - and I am determined to enjoy the reckless abandonment and risk taking the wild and the cultivated plants in my yard are taking in the much more variable weather than they are accustomed to.

Headed for the mountains in a few days, joined by my sister Annie. No one could wish for a better travel companion. 2 days of boring workshops that are business for me, then 3 days of wondering the mountains to enjoy spring ephemerals and stop on a whim at roadside and obscure museums and libraries on the search for both genealogical information and understanding of the culture, conditions and times of our ancestors, Native American and European alike.

Will be scattering some of Kat's ashes along the way, in wild and beautiful places. Sometimes to the sound of Annie's fiddle playing a mountain tune, and if a flat rock is handy on which to dance, I'll probably flatfoot or clog a little in joyous remembrance. Not just in remembrance of Kat, but in celebration of all of you.

Nigel, so glad your consultation went well and hope you are enjoying the sunshine and feeling much better.

Yes The Little Theatre in Sheringham is alive and well. Christopher ( my son) has meetings with the manager quite often as he runs St George's Theatre in Great Yarmouth. Sheringham has a great success with " rep" but the Gt Yarmouth audience don't seem to be embracing plays at the moment but folk and comedy seem to be very popular.

He was telling me that he was at a meeting in Sheringham recently and was with his assistant manager Tom when he recognised a slightly scruffy chap talking to one of the staff. Chris said that he knew he had met him before but could not remember his name and he was coming over to say hello. One of those embarrassing moments he thought? So when John Hurt came over and shook his hand he had no idea who he was till Tom whispered in his ear ! He lives nearby and is a supporter of the Little Theatre.

Sun is shining in Frinton, Billy has taken the little girls to the beach hut while I catch up in the salon.

My love to all, sailing on with calm waters

with love

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxx

Wendy, your post was a joy to read. So many place names that bring back fond memories of my walking days. Is the Sheringham Little Theatre still open for business? It's good to have you back on board & a bonus to read your uplifting news.

      The consultation (with my Neurologist) went well, if 'well' is the right word! She is a real gem. She gave me her email sometime ago, just in case I needed to contact her directly & quickly. In my experience, Doctors rarely grant that sort of access. It always has to be via 'the proper channels'.

      Thinking particularly today of Wendy & her Family; Spaw & his Family; Pete & Tommy...anyone in our esteemed crew who needs a little extra TLC.

      Sending you all some warming, UK sunshine,
                                                                         With Love,
                                                                                        Nigel

Afternoon all,

back from a wonderful week in Norfolk, early nights, long lie ins, great food and shared the days with our extended family.

Only rained on one afternoon so Christopher took us Bowling, in 30 years of being together I have never bowled, imagine Billy's face when I beat him ( he was also beaten by Prudence age 5!!) He has begged me not to tell his sisters in N J as he will never live it down!

Spent a lovely day at Blickling , picnic by the lake and a stroll round the house and gardens. A day at Holkham Beach reading my book and watching the sea, even saw the Wells lifeboat go out. Had fun driving round the lanes near Cromer and Sheringham and Trunch       ( memories of the Kipper family made me smile!!)

The grandchildren enjoyed meeting again the grandchildren of my cousins family, there was 5 acres of garden right on the clifftop so tree climbing, badminton and building dens took up many an hour. Swimming every afternoon and then 24 sharing dinners round four tables pushed together to make one huge table, much wine for the adults and some frightening cocktails made by Ciaran and Christopher!!

Mother was so well looked after while we were away, eating much better and although she seemed very glad to see me on Sunday, I don't think she really missed me?

Just catching up with all the Rainbow crew and the news, much love to you all, positive thoughts to Nigel, Spaw, Karen, Tommy and Maeve.

Good to be back on board.

much love
Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Pete, that song by The Halliard was 'Mad Tom O'Bedlam'...the folk equivalent of a 'show stopper'!

Up, Nigel! "... apologise for blathering on..." No need - you never need to apologize. That's why we are here. My thoughts and prayers to you (and to all, of course). As for the wait, take solace in the fact that they review the files in the order received and they do it twice on accounta they wanna get it right. Besides, and I know this might sound like 'real' blather, ain't nothin ya can do about the wait or about the opinions.

I've come to find therapy lately in hitting that there You Tube and watching comedy stuff before bedtime and early in the morn for 15 to 30 minutes. Try it. Here's a suggestion... copy and paste...

Christmas Presence (Part 1) - Simon's Cat

Enjoy, relax, laugh together with me, with us? It's just a silly bit of fun but it helps me. I hope it may help you (and, perhaps, others).

Bless all.

Thank you so much, Maeve. Physically, I guess you could say I've 'run aground'. Several clinics to attend over the next couple of weeks...beginning to feel a bit like clutching at straws, medically speaking. Gnu, I'm going to listen to your link. I think Music links would be the most helpful, along with some poetry. Somehow, I've got to get this old brain of mine back in gear. Thinking clearly & short-term memory are the main issues. A recent CT scan showed some damage, but I'm still waiting for comprehensive feedback from my Doc. Don't these people understand how waiting for several weeks, not knowing what's actually 'going on' is soo anxiety provoking? I apologise for blathering on...feeling very down & debilitated.

Music? Well now! I know of a lovely Canuck lady musician who has a theme(s) that runs thru her music. Empowerment of women and education of young adults thru her songs. Her amazing song 'Birmingham' brought a great impetus to the awareness/promotion of battered women's plights/rights in Canada. Here is another such song which DOES reach young people on more than one level on more than one issue. Whilst some may view it as just a rock song to be played at HIGH volume and danced to, I view it as a triumph by this artist and socially conscious individual. It speaks volumes.

Again, it is rock music. Speakers on ELEVEN!

Janie, the Johnson Girls have been booked for this year's sea music festival, but even when they are not booked they are usually there for the festival and sing a song or two at the late-night pub sings and also the January Chantey Blast afternoon. Anyway, I look forward to meeting you whenever you do get to Mystic.

My fingers didn't walk well on the keyboard in that last post. Glad you could translate and forgive the typos.

One of these days I'm gonna make it to Mystic. Any combination of the Johnson Girls works for me. Any song that moves us together, or reminds us that we are much better off joined together works for me also. Seems right now that seas are calm for some and quite rough for others. What matters, regardless,is a stalwart crew and that we have in spades.

Janie, I've been playing the Johnson Girls CD with that song lately. Coincidentally, I spoke briefly to one of them, Bonnie, at Mystic Seaport on Saturday. Maggie no longer sings with them. I believe she has moved too far away to make rehearsals and performances possible. She was not on their third CD. Even with 4 voices instead of 5, they sound great. Your weekend sounds like it will be a positive experience.

And Wendy and Billy, I hope the rest of your weekend away from home continued as well as it began.

Lovely, Wendy. And what gnu said.

The 3rd anniversary of Daddy's death was a few days ago. It didn't seem appropriate -and I didn't have a strong need to remark on it at that immediate time Talked with Mom tonight about plans for the family to go up to the University the Saturday in May for their annual memorial service for people who donated their bodies. Family emergency prevented us from going up the year his ashes were scattered and due to a glitch in the University's system we were notified of the date last year.

Will be a long day at that Saturday, driving to Morgantown and back to Mom's - and also a lovely day. Looking forward to it. My nephews, who my parents raised after Kaye died are riding up with us, sans grandnieces (who I delight in, but are so young that they demand alot of attention.) I have no doubt it will be a good trip and a good visit and it will be settling to finally have an image and memory of where Daddy's ashes landed. It would have been OK regardless, but definitely better to finally have a mental space with a visual image.

Billy and I are in Norfolk, for a week. We have hired a small cottage but tonight have our daughter and her husband and two girls and our son and grandson with us. My cousin has hired a large house with swimming pool (lovely) with all his family . So today there were 21 of us having lunch, then swimming then dinner. I cannot tell you how much laughter and fun there was. Reliving old family memories around a huge kitchen table.

Mother is safe at home with her carers. But Billy and I are having a rest surrounded by our wonderful extended family.

Sending all our love to the Rainbow crew. Wishing you all a peaceful and contented night.

much love

Wendy and Billy xxxxxxx

Another poetic and affirming thread is Sunshine Thoughts.

Hi guys.

As a veteran lurker who's been around since the late 90s but only posted infrequently, I felt like saying I use this thread like I used to use the whole Mudcat. Here I find people interacting in kindness and generosity. I find evidence that we have more in common than we think. I was always more of a reader than participator but such is my nature. The way I use the Mudcat now, I start on "Messages since last visit" and go down the names list, finding the threads that a small handful of names have posted on (looking at you 'Spaw). Names from the "old days". More and more, I pretty much just end up on this thread. Even though most probably don't recognize my moniker, I'm thankful that I still belong to this family, however noisome and contentious some of the more distant cousins have become. Best wishes and good thoughts to you all.
