I have the right one, actually, Mag. But I would now, anyway!!

Keep your points heading North, and illegitimi non carborundum. This is an awful distressing detour but the main thing is you and the kinder and the cats are all okay.

Betcha the little shits have been doing it for quite some time, too.

And you're right, you don't feel violated, you feel pissed off, at least for property theaft. Been there.

Floggin' too good for 'em. Make 'em listen to a debate between MG and DougR. Or lock 'em in a room and pipe in nothing but accordion-and-banjo duets. Or...no, the rest is creel and unusual.

About four minutes after I posted that at work I received a call from the county sheriff--from my home--to tell me that I had been burgled. Both computers, a tv, other small electronics. Amazing, a neighbor spotted this, stood on her brakes, backed into the neighbor's driveway and got the license #. My cats are okay, and I wasn't home, so no home invasion. That's good. But everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is on my computer, little of it behind even a password. So I may be shit out of luck and fighting a credit and id battle for a while.

Here is the boilerplate message I sent to friends just now:

    Hi-

    This note has been composed on my old laptop computer and sent to a few folks to let you know that I'm offline for now. The house was burgled this morning (2-18-05) and both computers were stolen, along with all of the peripherals. This is a problem since a lot of financial information was in them, and because I work at home and many of my files are gone. Hopefully the computers will be returned, because a neighbor interrupted the burglary and got the license number and description of the car and three young burglars.

    Of course, all of my email that was downloaded is gone along with all of my addresses, etc. (if they find my computer I will be so relieved--it even has my latest tax return in PDF form in the files). I'm sending this via web mail to addresses in that address book.

    I am going to have to replace two computers, their peripherals, a tv, and a broken turntable pretty quickly, but it won't be instantaneous. Meanwhile, the kids are okay, the cats, who were in the house at the time are okay, and thankfully I wasn't at home, though I usually work at home on Fridays. The burglars evidently knocked on the door first (footprints in the grass from where they parked) and with no response, broke in. I wonder, if I'd answered the door, if they'd have pushed their way in. So, if it was going to happen, better to not be at home, and the cats hid like all cats should. (Beth, who called it in, said the sheriffs were kind of cute, because they kept telling each other "shut the door--the cats have to stay in!") At another juncture, the sheriff on duty took the crime scene guy through the house. They got to my bedroom and he told the CSI guy "they ransacked this one good." To which I had to reply, "actually, they didn't touch this one. It's my mess." Really funny--but here is where I keep my dismantled antiques, and I'd dumped a load of clean laundry on my bed this morning, planning to fold and put it away tonight.

    The contractor who worked on my house when I moved in is coming over tomorrow to look at the door, and we'll see about not only repairing but reinforcing it.

    I'll send this now, and in the next couple of days I'll try to check my mail once or twice a day, but don't expect to hear from me much for a week or so. I'm going to be on the phone a lot to make sure that I track the credit information and block any accounts that might have been compromised. I've already arranged to close my checking account and rearrange direct deposits and withdrawals.

    It sure would be easier if I had my computer to do all of this work. . .


Amos has my email address, but I think he has one that is blocked. So ask Amos for my address if you want to write and don't mind that I won't see it right away--but instead of the stillyriversage part, use dwy5812syc@ Put that in front of the other part that Amos has and you can reach me.

This is the pits, by the way. Everything was backed up--but they got the backup drive. Little shits dropped and broke a perfectly good turntable, too. Cassette cases strewn on the floor like leaves on the strand (isn't that a poem or song?)

I'll recover, I'm mostly just pissed off at all of the lost papers (my book chapter, my thesis, several MS level papers) and photos and such.

of course you don't have a problem - Hunting Whales admittedly have gone out of fashion - but were bred for many generations for their ability to leap gracefully over obstructions. The name "Hunting Whale" is actually a misnomer - they were so-called by the similairity in function to "hunter" breeds of horses - but their primary use was in herding freshwater fur dolphins.

and get a mental vision of the famous pods of English Hunting Whales tally-hooing across stone fences in pursuit of something or other.

My mother, the sweetest and most...understanding...woman I have ever known (excluding my wife, in case she reads this). Raised four kids pretty much alone. "Your mother EARNED every one of her gray hairs," says Everyone Who Knew.

Culinary stuff. We had a grape arbor, so every year she's make jelly and grape juice. One year both somehow fermented. We used 'em anyway, but ho-boy! did those peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches cause comment at school!

I'd like to talk with her again, but I'd need a ouija board. Dammit.

Oh, I'm dying to have some Indian (from India) food, but most of it is kind of difficult. I've found some recipes, though.

My mom and I have to laugh now. I don't know what it is--some kind of aphasia--but she reads a lot and can't pronounce words well. One time she talked about going to that tourist spot in Southern California, Venus Beach. (It's really venice.) She tends to say "prostrate" when she means "prostate". Well, now, she's learned to nudge me and say, "Is that right?" Used to be she'd get mad at me for correcting her. Isn't it interesting how relationships are? Oh, she still nags, but I don't let it get to me anymore. I either ignore it or tell her I've had enough ... very quietly and effectively, at least for awhile. :)

Well, it doesn't necessarily make you a NoAccount, depending on the circumstances. Rather than risk sinking the MOAB under some heavy material at this juncture, maybe a quick funny story about each of our mothers would be a safe segue into green BS pastures.

My mother, for example, liked to cook, but as we got older and everyone was in a hurry, and as she was a working single mother, she didn't get much chance to try out new stuff. One time she decided it was time to try something new on the four of us, and picked up some recipes at the County Ag Extension Agent's office. Two were particularly memorable. Liver and Kidney Teriyake. Think about it. Diced brown gland meat in a brown sauce, the look and consistency of canned dog food. We renamed it Liver and Kidney Hare Kari, and she never made it again. Then there was the abomination of all desserts, a recipe came in an "enough to feed a small private army" quantity that it didn't occur to her to reduce. It was grape tapioca pudding. It seemed to bubble up in the pan to fill the entire kitchen before it was finished, and it looked like some demented wallpaper paste. I like my pudding simple and subtle, and I love vanilla, so this concord grape stuff was, well, almost indescribable, so I won't try.

To move to my generation of cooking, I think my "burned potatoes in the pressure cooker" will be one of those cooking diasters my kids will remember. Jeez, but do they smell bad! Too bad mom isn't around, or she'd have gotten a charge out of that story. (She came to the rescue for friends and family several times with her pressure cookery talents.)

Or is cooking a safe subject when discussing one's mother (or ex-mother of one's children)? What do you say, MOM (MOAB)?

According to basic physics, we cannot know both the momentum and position of an object with total acccuracy.
This being mudcat, we can arbitrarly redefine h as we see fit, in this case to a much larger number.

Momentum: mass X velocity.

Mass: About Six thousand, Three hundred and can't remember posts.

Velocity: Nowhere fast.

These therefore confine the uncertainty in position to over 20, 000 km, which means MOAB can be at all points on earth at the same time, including with MMarios folks in the South Pacific.

I will leave it as an exercise to the reader to deteimine a consistent set of values for velocity, post mass, and Mudcat h...
