Dear Melancholy,

First you have to say "good night" to someone in your arms. Don't settle for just anyone. There should be definite mutual feelings between the both of you for a meaningful encounter, but if that's not what you are looking for I guess anyone will do. Get out and meet some new people or be good to the one you are with. NO BITCHIN' Good Luck!

Genies are another matter - they do good things but always have a hidden agenda. Best to avoid them.

Wow, gnu, that's an interesting post.

So many things, really. Starting with getting my beautiful Italian accordion back from the shop. Did I ever tell you how incredibly beautiful and sweet that accordion sounds? And it's smooth... like butter and velvet. Practically all you have to do is sit behind it and whisper "I love you" to it, over and over, and it just about plays itself.

Then there are some other things...

So they could actually tell you what your cats are thinking about you ? My bet is that it would be only nice things. May as well be...it's your choice at the moment.

CarolC.... or may I call you Carol ? I had a little Honer that I used to finger when I was a boy but I lost the urge when I grew up and left home. It wasn't til years later when I got my first Hran that I learned why a slow beat was the most difficult and the most rewarding.

Alas, it has been years since I have laid my fingers on a squeezebox and I really don't know if I can make one sing in that sweet melody anymore. However, I have given myself completely to the Hran and I am not remorseful in any way. Indeed, tis through the Hran that I have developed my ability to extend my rythmic thoughts to the supple fingers which pluck music from the skin I brush so gently and, yet, with command....

Yeah, so what were you going to say ?

To just once, phone Catspaw, and have him (or anyone else) answer the phone.

To take Duckboots to some of those magnificent places I visited in the past, like Paris, madrid, Amsterdam, New Orleans, London, and so many more. I often went with partners, but no one I really loved.

To have the kind of spiritual moment (that I'm afraid I don't believe in) where I can say "thanks and sorry for being so much trouble", to my late Mother and Father. Also to show them that I turned out fine.

I have heard - only ever had female cats - that you can curb a tom's PUBLIC display of "affections" by use of a pillow or towel or bathmat placed in a private place for his "use". As far as how to train him to "affectionate" that particular item, I have no idea. Well....no, I have no idea.

It's the elegant and subtle sense of irony, gnu. I'm a U.S. American, but I think I inherited the sense of humour from my grandfather who was from Saint John, New Brunswick.

I just spent a little over a month in Orillia, Ontario with Mudcatter, flattop, and also hesperis, Little Hawk, and some other wonderful people. I had a fantastic time. Some pictures from my trip can be found here

My particular wish involves a long story to explain it. When I first moved to Plymouth 2 1/2 years ago I had to leave behind, with my parents, my beloved labrador, Millie. After I had been in Plymouth for a few days I phoned home to touch base & asked my Mum how my dog was. She said "your dog is sitting by the front door at 5.30 every evening with her head cocked to one side, waiting for you to come home."

I nearly jumped straight in my car and drove home. Going to bed that night and going to work the next day was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. So my wish is that one day, before I die, I can live in circumstances that allow me to have a dog. It won't be soon, and it won't be Millie, who is now 11, but one day....

Incidentally after a few weeks she forgot all about me, but she still goes gratifyingly beserk when I go home, making pathetic wimpering noises when she sees me, which are quite out of character.

He was roped to the mountainside wearing climbing gear and crampons on his boots to grip the ice. Beneath him you see an older woman wearing a house dress and apron with a climbing harness and crampons on her slipper. The caption read from Mom's mouth, "Honey you forgot your wool socks!!!!!"

All very much more grown up than a similar "to do" list I did ages ago which I found recently. It read:
1: To shag each of the Nolan sisters. 2: To find out why a curry house in Willesden keeps inviting me to "special openings".
3: To write the definitive 21st Century English novel
4: To try to recall what the bloody hell I was doing between 1984 and 1990 and to make the relevant apologies to all concerned if necessary. Particularly to the staff and stewards at Lingfield and Cheltenham race-courses.

Skipjack told me that jigigig means "casual sex" in Italian. I have never met Skipjack in person. However, he and I are in agreement that the accordion is a very sexy instrument. If you want to see a pictorial example of this, buy a copy of the "Mudcat (nearly) nude calendar" when it comes out.

For those of you eager to join me in space:
U.S. Space Tourist Ready for Flight Reuters Mar 23 2001 12:05AM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. millionaire with a ticket to ride aboard the Russian Soyuz spaceship said on Thursday he is well-trained and ready for his planned $20 million flight next month to the International Space Station. American investment manager Dennis Tito, who will become the first tourist in space, said in an television interview he has had eight months of cosmonaut training, is in excellent health and well-prepared to hold his own with the professional astronauts.

In an appearance on CNN's "Larry King Live," Tito acknowledged that NASA and other space station partners are concerned that a nonprofessional could be a distraction as the crew executes complicated operations.

Tito said he is well-trained and would know what to do in the event of an emergency, such as a fire. "If a fire were to occur and the rest of the astronauts were disabled, I would know exactly what to do, how to put out the fire, how to locate it and how to deal with my own breathing," he said.

The 60-year-old would-be cosmonaut, who paid the Russians for a seat on Soyuz, also said he has had a lot of training in weightlessness and can put on a spacesuit in 25 seconds.

"I feel like I'm ready, I'm well trained," he added.

If the flight goes as planned, Tito said he will be more than a tourist on the upcoming Soyuz mission set for April 30.

"I have some duties on the launch vehicle. I will assist the commander as he instructs me," Tito explained. He added: "I've had a lot of systems training. I actually could operate a lot of the systems on the space station itself."

Tito, a former NASA employee, said he does not understand why the U.S. space agency is concerned about having a civilian aboard the space station. He said with shuttle flights now routine, his journey would be a great opportunity for NASA to get Americans excited about the space station.

"Being able to see space through the eyes of an ordinary civilian is an intriguing idea," Tito said in the interview.

In a separate CNN interview, a NASA official said now was not the right time for Tito to visit the space station because of the heavy work schedule. And there's the matter of ensuring the safety of an inadequately trained civilian, said William Readdy, a former astronaut and NASA's chief of space flight.

"If there would be anything off nominal, any kind of emergency, the crew up there, quite frankly, would not be able to accommodate a nonprofessional," he said.

Readdy noted that Tito was initially supposed to fly aboard the aging Russian space station Mir. But Mir was deemed unsafe and was being brought down to Earth on Friday.



Oh how I envy him.

I don't want to start a debate, but after reading SO many posts that support SANE gun legislation, I HAVE to make just this ONE comment, and then I will shut up....

Bob, we just had ANOTHER home invasion in the Maritimes. This time, a 34 year old occupant is dead from a gunshot wound.

I only have a fifty percent chance of being right on this, but I'll bet that when his home was invaded by criminals who see our recent SANE Canadian gun laws as a cause for celebration and he was looking down the barrel of that gun, he might have disagreed with some of the "sane" arguements offerred by those who would disallow law abiding citizens the right to defend their homes and families.

As per our recent laws...My gun is locked up solid. My ammunition is locked up separately and solid. I have obtained my Possession & Aquisition Certificate. I am (reasonably) sane. Everything is ready for my home to be invaded by criminals and the government both. You can probably guess which group I most fear.

BTW, don't tell me that the anti-gun lobby doesn't want to confiscate ALL guns. Tell that to the Aussies and the Brits and see how far you get. Better yet, tell it to the six million plus people exterminated during WWII.

God bless America - last land left of the free and last home left of the brave.

Hi gnu,

I read your post.

I respect nearly all opinions on nearly everthing.

I admit having not checked for gun control threads at this forum. That's cause I only intend to communicate over this medium on music related topics.

This will be the only post you'll see from me on this subject unless someone brings it up.

I have strong notions regarding what Madison wrote, and I think he was crystal clear.

You may join with those who wish to overthrow the 2nd amendment and return to the days of Wild Bill; I won't be part of that.

I have no intention of listening to, or commenting on Heston or the Bradybillers. They just talk while guns go bang and nothing gets resolved, except to go on talking for which each side gets paid big bucks). But, as long as it remains an essential element (bill of rights) of the supreme law of the U. S., I will try to get folks to read James' very plain language. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security mof a free state . . . (I trust you know the rest).

I could PM you the long version that I send whenever the issue gets me riled, but in a nutshell its says:

If you want the constituional right to carry a gun, go and join a well regulated militia.

If you belong to a well regulated militia, the federal government cannot demand that you surrender your weapon.

If you do not wish to join a militia, you have no legal protection to keep your weapon. By the same logic as, "you can't keep chickens", if the people pass the laws "you can't keep guns".

The only issues to decide are:
- What constitutes a "regulated militia"
- What constitutes a "militia".

It is my belief that if you keep the debaters within those parameters you can make real progress toward a less violent society.

I this country, the USA, a militia is a citizens army. A volunteer group whose leaders are responsible to the citizenry from which they draw their power.

And to whom they are responsible to carry out whatever laws passed by those citizens constitute "well regulated".

For example: Robert E. Lee quit the national army to lead a militia (Army of Northern Virginia) and fight against an invasion by the national government. Later, that same army, on numerous occasions, fought alongside the national government in conflicts when Virginians deemed that a threat existed.

I know full well that the national guard has been misused many times to hurt people when the threat didn't warrant the actions taken (Kent State). But remember, whenever people lose control of the contract they have with their government, what follows is facism.

I'm certain Kent State proved that; the problem is, did we pay attention?

Ben Franklin commented that the constitution gave us a republican form of government (in the greek sense) and was a precious gift (liberty) that we must diligently guard if we intend to keep it.

That's the short version.

PM me if there are points that need further clarification.

On a music-related note (finally back to where we belong); "Robin and Linda Williams And Their Fine Group" do a wonderful tune called "Men with Guns" that sums up perfectly, my personal attitude on the issue.

Please feel free to PM me if you want to discuss it further. HOWEVER, I really don't want to.

My apologies for raising the blood pressure of all concerned.

Oh, Mickey, thanks for that reminder. My condolences on your loss.

I would wish to hear someone singing to me gently and the voices of my family. Hearing is the last faculty to go.

After my recent experience of holding and comforting my mother while she was dying a very difficult death, I have learned something about what happens to survivors who go through such an experience.

I think I want my final moments to be whatever would be the least traumatic for my loved ones.

Micky 191, I am also sorry for your loss.

Before I die, I wish that I would quit coming up with the same old tired jokes, day in day out, and actually come up with something fairly original.....

Borught this thread back, because item #3 on my wish list (earlier in this thread), is close to reality, at least in certain cancers.

Check it out!

Thanks Boab. I think I understand the "It's half of the gaelic word for drum" part, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "In english you'd say "an 'um'"

Is it a reference to dropping the 'dr' part of 'drum'?

Carol
