High altitude, No Opening. A specialty of Rapp's.

The scars are diminishing, and that's a good thing, but they itch something turrible.

Stitches come out on Thursday. Then we will see if I end up as Smiling Jack or Scarface...

As you can see my attention has been preempted.

Does it occur to anyone how healthy it would be if an act of Congress were passed requiring that any bill submitted be solely about one issue or decision, with no riders dragging in irrelevant issues from sme other area? THe National Relevancy Act would immediately undo 75% of the tapdancing around who gets what to say about what and to whom.

Okay, I know HALO is the acronym for High Altitude Low opening, but I haven't come across HANO before. Is it High Altitude Non-Opening?

All...those...posts.

Do I get another birthday? Am I younger now?

Amos, you scare the...wits...out of me just thinking about you, which I try not to do because if I did I'd be living in a continual adrenaline rush greater than that I used to get HANO skydiving without rubber soles and heels on my shoes.

Turns out that the MOAB is so long and has been here for such a duration that Google doesn't see a few hundred missing posts as anything worth showing in the cache. It says the thread is available online, and that's that.

Amos, don't worry about scaring kids. Kids scare easily. It's when you start to scare adults that you have a real problem.

Hi, Mom. DUnno about Google cache, but my life is full of reruns so I am used to them. Wot the hell. My face is still purpply-red, but it is continuing the healingprocess. Ihave to wear big shades to avoid scaring kids.

Wake up, Mom! Yes, I know you're a bit disoriented. Like a hangover after a night out with the Idaho Legion boys, isn't it. "Oh shit! I've lost a few hours before, but not almost two months! What the hell'd those derelict old fuckers put in my drink this time?"

It's in the Google cache, I was able to retrieve most of the declutter thread and I'll break it up tomorrow. Anyone want to collect the several hundred posts from the cache and drop them in? It means downloading the WHOLE THING. An overnight job, perhaps.

Narcissistic? Moi? Heavens to Betsy, you defame me! I would no more be self-centered than I'd be a Republican living with the rest of them in San Diego!

I'd file a tort action for defamation, but it's probably too much trouble. Instead I'll just hack Santa Claus' computers and put your name on the 'naughty' list.

Geez, I gotta do EVERYTHING around here! Slop the hogs, plow the back forty, clean the house, harvest the hops, grow the grain, distill Amos' "medicine", mend the clothes, clean the chimney for Santa, bake his cookies, and milk the cow. And all the while I have to sleep in the cinders with Little Orphant Annie -- at least HER cinders are cold!

Our Coast--the Western one--is never quite all clear, I'm afraid. When the south end of it is dazzlingly pellucid, the hills in the North are swamped with low lying fog banks. When the Los Angeles Basin is mysteriously glass-like, the eastern borders of the coastal region are battered with drizzle or downpour. In between times the forest fires send mountainous threads of smoke into the arroyos leading tot he sea, and clutter the view up something wicked. Thus we are never quite in the clear. Whoever posed the question originally must have been thinking of the East coast.

I'm down to a couple of bowls of tomatoes from the garden that are still ripening on the kitchen counter. Come xmas day I will be able to offer my lovely daughter Moonglow a BLT from homegrown tomatoes. There are enough for both of us. Her father may come over also, but he eschews bacon and might at best eat a tomato with a little salt.

Tonight I simmered the already ripe tomatoes and made a fine concoction - homemade tomato sauce. It will go in the freezer because it's too much work to set up the canning apparatus and process. And I have to start making cookies. Spritz, anyone?

Well, on the 30th I go see an orthopedic surgeon about repairing my RIGHT knee. Medial meniscus tear. If all goes well the surgery will be the week of January 11. This should be arthroscopic surgery, but I'm getting sick and tired of slowly falling to pieces.

Of course, I did this while Pat was in the hospital and I was rushing around Doing Things.

Sounds like a lovely sofa, Amos. I had a futon that was comfortable and the dogs loved it (with many layers on it to keep the dog smell from lodging in the mattress) but it took up too much space so I donated it to the Salvation Army. I still miss it, but I do enjoy being able to walk into the room and move around easily. The kids now have more or less abandoned their bedrooms so those beds are used for guests.

Wow, GUEST. You seem to know Amos' housing condition. But since only very wealthy Republicans can live in the Marine-Corps-protected gated community of Sandy Ego I suspect you're right. I was there, once, to see my nephew graduate from (or into?) the Marines. He was handed a rubber truncheon and a pistol and told to "break the *&$%!! heads of any **@@##!!!$% who tries to disturb the peace of those who live here and whom we are sworn to protect." "Protecting" meant beating senseless, dumping into a boat, and tossing overboard beyond the three-mile limit, all the riff-raff, hippies, and ne'er-do-wells.

It ruined him. Now he's studying to be an electrical engineer instead of reading and writing the poetry he loved.

You COULD put your guests up in that six bedroom, 5 bath guesthouse you have attached to the Big House and near, but upwind, from your stables. Of course, then your guests might see the servants' quarters under your stables.

The squirrels won. The hawk wanted dinner, but dinner kept above her and among the branches so she couldn't get them. Then the squirrels broke off branches and dropped them on her. She put up with it for a while but moved on to an easier meal.

Assuming, Amos, that the speed was instantly reached with the pitch, you wouldn't have to worry about the mass because the atoms in front of the object would be fused together by it (assuming it didn't instantly ignite). These would set off further fusion events.

Do you know what energy is released by a fusion event? HINT: Fusion powers the stars.
