Carbs. Something sweet. That sleepy feeling you get after you eat a candy bar or drink a soft drink. Try it at bedtime and see if you can ride it out.

Good luck! I know I'm fortunate in getting to sleep easily; I am usually out in less than a minute or two after I go to bed. I can also affirm that my bed is very comfortable, I have wonderful 100% cotton sheets and bedding, comfortable pillows, and my bedroom is dark, though when lit it is an attractive and restful space. There is a silent ceiling fan on low during the summer months. There is usually at least one cat on the bed, sometimes two. The old cat is a scold sometimes, so if I try to take a daytime nap he sometimes is more nuisance than comfort, but at night he scolds me that it is bedtime then curls up happily beside me and all is silent. The calico sometimes sleeps at the foot of the bed, sometimes on a chair in the room. It's quiet and dark in my house on the creek.

So the old fart Siamese cat made a liar out of me. He has taken to complaining at times, and last night he would do one of those Siamese "mrrrrrooooowwwww!" complaints right after I had drifted off. I finally evicted him by flailing a pillow in the dark, but that wakes you up, and I think we did that exercise about three times before he finally shut up. Geez.

With people, sometimes it is less important to answer the question, than it is to recognize and answer the feeling behind the question.

With SIamese, the conundrum has a whole additional layer in that it is sometimes impossible to tell what the question is, let alone what a cat is feeling. They are duplicitous, manipulative, two-faced creatures with little regard for ethical values.

In other words, they are cats.

Though Siamese tend to take "cat-ness" to a peak.

They have ethical values, Amos. It's just that their ethical values do not concern the welfare or interests of anyone but themselves!

Well, I was surprised to get a pretty good night's sleep last night! Not because of doing anything different. I didn't eat any turkey. I just slept well last night for some reason. Hallelujah! Perhaps complaining on Mudcat has put some mysterious forces in motion for me. ;-)

If I have cats or dogs in the room with me, Stilly, there goes any HOPE of my getting much sleep...unless they were to remain totally quiet all night.

My first real girlfriend cost me a great deal of sleep, because I couldn't fall asleep with her in the bed next to me. It was bizarre. I mean, everything else was fine, I just could not fall asleep with her there beside me, because I couldn't stop thinking about the fact that she was there beside me and it kept me awake. She could sleep...no problem. I just about died of sleep deprivation (and too much sex?) in the first 6 months of the relationship. Then I finally got so totally exhausted that I started falling asleep regardless, and after that it was okay. We were together about 5 years, tumultuous ones indeed.

I have never found it easy to sleep in a bed with anyone else there too, but it helps some if you are in love with them... ;-) You manage, one way or another.

I've got a book here on overcoming anorexia, and I am studying diligently.

There's nothing like these long weekends--it means I can get more done around the yard and house. Never have been much of one for hitting the road with every other idiot bent on summer vacation.

MOM, how would you like some country style ribs this weekend?

The ribs of the average country stile tend to be woody, given to splinters, and uncarvable.

You may make stile ribs but my country style ribs are boneless and are tender meat chunks (held together by gobs of fatty gristle--I guess they must come from somewhere near the ribs).

In other news in the world, science seems to discover that the past may be changed by what you choose to measure in the present.

"ThereŐs no way around it: The nature of light seems different depending on how itŐs observed. Light can act like a particle or wave, and all shades of gray in between. Now, physicists have the most dramatic demonstration yet that this range of behaviors between wave and particles really is unavoidable, and that light itself doesnŐt know what it is while itŐs propagating".

This is an intriguing notion, because it opens the door to the understanding that time itself, which we depend on completely to keep everything from happening at once, and to reassure us that an object is the same thing it was, and several other certitudes of human existence, may be in fact only the biggest of Big Lies ever told.

Leo, early this afternoon I set up a Google Group for the Mudcatters who garden who have been discussing it on the current gardening thread, but no one else has joined yet. Just me. Do you want to join? Visit
http://groups.google.com/group/mudcat-gardeners and ask to join and I'll set you up. Members can invite other members, but I left it a private group that anyone can read.

I was looking for one place where we can all post our gardening photos and even each set up pages if we want, etc. It started because Bobert doesn't do digital or html pages and he sent me a couple of disks of some of his photos to post. I figured I'd rather put them at a collective mudcat place than on my photobucket pages.

Little Hawk, you should be ashamed of your parochial bias. There are many here among us in the US who pronounce these words almost exactly the way you do, except without the "Eh" after each one. There are others who pronounce them with strong Persian, Korean, Formosan, French, Hispanic, German, Swiss or British accents. Somehow, you know, we manage to communicate all right anyway, without mocking each other. Eh?

And even if you are not ashamed of your parochialism, you should be embarassed at the paucity of high-quality BS you have been putting out lately. You are resting on your laurels, thinking you will always be held in high esteem for your generation of such wondrous things as BDiBR/Shane, Chongo, and the fictitious Shatner.

But you should bestir yourself, sirrah, for verily, I say unto you, the writing is on the wall, and no man may erase it by a jot or a tittle. Fame is fleeting, and gloria mundi has married someone else by now. Stir your weary, aging bones, and make your Mom proud!!

Sir Hawk, what are you ranting on about? I did not use the word, "sirrah", have no perfumed hanky, and only resort to traditional formalisms in order, occasionally, to chastise, reprimand or educate you, when you show need of such things. I do not know, just now, why you are acting out the long-dead ghost of some tin-hat drill instructor or perhaps a Chinese Red Youth community leader, but I assure you I will not drop, nor give you twenty, nor even give you one. So, if this bothers you, you may go piss up a rope.

MOM is so glad to finally hear from Rapaire. I bet he sent her some postcards. They won't arrive until after he gets home, though.

Seems a wacko in North Carolina, mentioned here briefly a week or two ago, has taken to complaining to mudcat management about s t a l k i n g (says I'm doing it--I'm spacing it so it doesn't appear in a search.) Woman is fu*king nuts. Gone round the bend. Apparently if we both end up on the same thread she thinks she is being attacked. Even if I was there first. Amazing.

Continue with the conversation. I'm just venting a little.

PART III

They were flying the turn to seven then,
You could hear those horses thud,
Lord, how the air was full of cries,
And flying sweat, and mud.
They were fighting hard for every yard,
Hot enough to burn off paint,
And the betting men were lookin' grim,
While the gals commenced to faint.

The ponies sweated, strived and strained,
As they thundered into the bend;
They had full three hunnert more to go,
Afore they saw the end.
Their eyes rolled wide, the hot foam flew,
As they hurtled past the stands.
And the muscles on their mighty necks
Rippled like iron bands.

Brown Derby ran like a beast possessed,
With a heart that could not fail.
And his jockey heard, like the drums of hell,
Bright Glim there, on his tail.
And back in third, jes' taking her time,
Was the shadow of Big Mom,
Eating the track with a long, slow stride,
Like a slowly ticking bomb.

The 'caster he was hollerin' loud
Over the old PA,
It was more a fearsome, awesome roar,
There wasn't too much he could say.
The storm of those mighty muscles flew
Like tornados under glass,
And the watchers chewed their nails, and prayed
And yelled, as they thundered past.

I'm just funnin' with you, Amos. ;-) I know you love to say that word "sirrah" in that type of context.

I think Rapaire should know that Shane has been going all over Blind River and surrounding areas telling everyone who will listen that he has "scairt Rapaire clean out of the flippin' country". He is in his glory. He thinks Rapaire has fled North America in fear of what Shane might do to him if he got "aholt of him". Yes, the lad is boasting about it all the livelong day.
