It's beginning to get pretty intense out here, too--heavy cascades of sunlight running through the streets. Looks like it's gonna be a rough winter.

That is good news! Today on the Diane Rehm show they were talking about bikes and safety, mostly in the context of bikes on streets and in traffic. I sent a note about the problem of bikes on sidewalks, and though there was an offhand remark or two about bikes and pedestrians, they didn't actually discuss that particular problem. Too bad.

Tippet? I hope that is a typo, good sir.

Doorbell rang. That butt fuckin ugly fleece throw I got for Kissmeass last year fetched $10. Good riddance says I. Come on Kijiji! Daddy needs a new case of ale! Maybe I should just ask my relatives for beer for Kissmeass. Save me the time and effort. At least the throw was marketable whereas most of the crap I get goes to the Red Cross. The woman that bought it said it will be great to cover her son's pillows as that is where the dogs like to sleep and he can't stand the hair they shed. I say her dogs are not fussy what they sleep on.

Now, if only someone would buy the comforter with the deer 'pics' on it. WTF were they thinking... except that they found something at a great price because nobody else would ever buy it? Cheap bastards! Besides, I am a man. I don't do comforters unless they are warm blooded.

ALL information, Amos. Even that from your senses to your brain. Cut off. You'd live in a world without input of any kind. Kinda dreary, huh?

Moreover, we can find out EVERYTHING about you and blackmail you. As a slight example, there's the matter of the daughter of the Huli chieftain in Port Moresby....

Don't piss off librarians.

Yup. Seriously, I don't doubt it one bit. I have known library people that have.

"Librarians are the secret masters of the world. They control information. Don't ever piss one off. " -- Spider Robinson

But all to often this isn't appreciated and library folk are too decent to do anything other than beg for a larger budget.

SOB! No, not you, Rap. I was getting no feedback on about 40 ads on Kijiji. When I got a bunch of emails asking if I wanted to repost the ads because they were expiring, I chanced to spy I had a bunch of replies. Long story short... my security software was blocking all the replies. The cash is rolling in. Made $20 yesterday. Partaaaay!

I know -- I used to set their wages. Just high enough to keep 'em off food stamps and low enough that the budget doesn't take a big hit. Oh, it was SWELL!!! The annual groveling and sniveling and weeping for a ten-cent-per-hour raise, the hand-made tea cozies to make me look upon them with favor...why, I could almost go back to work just for that!

But I ain't going to.

My efforts are renumberated, but not with money. I receive the thanks of the people I help, and that's enough. Even though I live in a box and have to walk in shoes with holes, though I eat that to which others would turn up their noses, I am content with a smile or a thank you. Tho' I shiver as the cold wind cuts through my thin jacket, the excited face of someone, young or old, whom I have helped is sufficient unto me.

Pretty much the same as before I retired -- librarians don't make much money.

After retirement from remunerated efforts time expands for some people.

51500- surely that has significance?

Then, Ebbie, it would be Johnnies-Come-Lately. In Dutch is would be Johnny de laatste tijd komen and in Malay Johnny datang akhir-akhir ini and in Filipin Johnny ay hindi pa natatagalan and in Swahili it would be Johnny kuja siku za hivi karibuni.

Of course, it depends on how you spell "Johnny." It could be "Jonny" or even "Johannie."

The mystery of the hidden hoodie has been solved! I am sure you are all as relieved as I. I had given up hope, quite literally, after searching, off and on, for three days. Imagine, if you can, one losing a hoodie in their own home. Then, a series of events took place which led to sheer joy upon the discovery of the location of said hoodie and the accompanying realization that I hadn't 'lost it' altogether... yet.

Three morns ago, I had to reach under the blankets and sheet to grab hold of the fitted sheet and wrestle it back into place at the foot of the bed. Two morns ago, I had to do the same on the opposite side of the foot of the bed. I found these incidents puzzling, as one would when such rarely happens. Yesterday morn, both sides were ajar. I tried to do the same for both sides but it proved an unruly task so I stripped the bedding and found the corner pulling hoodie between the two blankets along the edge of the foot of the bed.

How did it get there? Monday night football. I fell asleep at halftime. Upon a loud cheer when The Steelers scored, I awoke and groggily turned off the TV and the heat pump and stumbled in darkness to my roost. As is my custom, I had earlier turned down the bedding, during which I usually place the top blanket in a position from which it can be easily retrieved if and when the temperature in the bedroom necessitates such. It all came together. I had doffed my hoodie and, in my grogginess, misplaced it near the foot of the bed instead on the bed chest. It's a nice bed chest, fashioned by an artisan in my basement. Red oak with maple scroll accents, all finished with a golden oak stain but I digress. As the temperature did fall during the night, after I was awakened by the urge to purge caused by Monday night football quaffs and satisfied the urge, I pulled up the top blanket and gently returned to my slumber, thereby unwittingly entombing my hoodie where it would remain for four days before rescue.

Doesn't this tale give you a feeling of... I can't get that time back?

In Phoenician there are no vowels. Neither are there any in Aramaic. Vowels are doubtful in Sabaean. Tuareg Tifinagh, of course, doesn't use vowels. While it exists in Yi, it is nowhere near the first -- that is given to "i". Egyptian hieroglyphs have no vowels.

Back then I guess you had to get along without a First Vowel.

(I know all this because Mom told me.)

I never claimed, sir, to be First Letter. I am merely the first Vowel, and as to that you may ask any schoolchild in the English-speaking world.

Kha, on the other hand, is a very late consonant, thoroughly below the salt.


A

Whether or not A is the first vowel depends upon your alphabet. In Khmer the first letter is ka (the a with a bar over it) and is pronounced "ka". In Kannada it's "k", as it is in Malayalam. Of course, alphabets are usually arranged in our eurocentric way. You might look at classic Mayan or Linear A for other examples of alphabets that do not have "a" as the first letter.

It's Friday, perhaps topic suggestions will perk up. I plan to get out in the garden and trim the grass from under all of the happy tomato plants that are again producing. The grass is hiding much of the fruit. Time to start making green tomato relish.

Carole has big burly guards and bigger dogs. The dogs eat Irish Wolfhounds AND the wolves as a light luncheon repast. I don't know what the guards eat, but I've heard that they chew railroad spikes like candy -- vertically in the mouths.

The town was named for a thermos bottle because of what they call the thermos bottle miracle. As one docent explained it to me:

"You put something hot in a thermos bottle, and the bottle keeps it hot."

"Yes, that's for sure," I agreed.

"But if you put something cold in a thermos bottle, the thermos bottle keeps it COLD!", she continued, wide-eyed.

"Yes, yes. But what is your point?"

"Well,: she said proudly, "How does it know???"
