MOM, you're sitting here all alone on the bottom rung, none of the other kids have come by to check on you. And even though Rap can send email from that Trollish cruise ship, he has neglected you. He has a lot to answer for, that's all I can say.

Gnu, I don't know what that procedure was, but it sounds like they weren't using painkillers? At least it was brief. I chose not to use painkillers with both kids - the horror at having a needle in my spine is worse than contemplating the pain of childbirth. Sometimes the drugs are more bother than they're worth.

So Rap is floating around on a troll river boat somewhere in Norway. I hope he remembered to mail me the frozen wild salmon.

BTW... the Vito's pizza was amazing. Second best I ever had from Vito's. The best was free when I was 16 years old. Quite a story. It involves a chance meeting with Vito and his brother in the backwoods of NB and a partridge stew. Now, the pizza was great but I'd choose my partridge stew over pizza any day.

BTW BTW... sunny and 6C right now.

To answer everyone's question, "Where is Rapparee, where oh were is he?"

I'm currently in the MS Trollfjord, docked in Alesond, Norway. Please tell Mom that the city is well plundered.

I am sending (shipping collect) 15.6 tonnes of stockfish to Amos.

Round number four...

Alerts for: Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick

Warnings

4:53 AM ADT Wednesday 22 March 2017
Blizzard warning in effect for:
?Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick

Blizzard conditions with poor visibility in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

A developing low pressure system over Maine will track eastward across southern New Brunswick today to lie over Northumberland Strait this evening. The low will then move to lie east of Nova Scotia Thursday morning.

Snow associated with the system will begin this morning and continue through the day and into tonight. Some showers will likely mix with the snow early this afternoon over southern areas of New Brunswick. Total snowfall amounts near 15 centimetres are expected.

Strong northwest winds and very cold temperatures will develop this afternoon and combine with the fresh snow to give very poor visibilities in blowing snow late this afternoon and tonight. Wind gusts near 70 km/h are expected over most areas tonight. Wind gusts up to 90 km/h are expected over some coastal locations.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
**************************************************************

Same deal. 15cm of snow and 50-70kph? PFFFFT! Mind you, I ain't gonna try to drive across the Tantramar Marsh or walk along the beach at midnight.

So, the admitting nurse says, "The drugs work very fast. You won't feel a thing." Why did she tell me that? The procedure room nurse says, "This will relax you. You won't feel a thing. Just begin to breath deeply now and after I freeze your throat with this spray, I'll administer the drugs through the shunt. You won't feel a thing." The doc says, "This will only take five minutes and between the spray and the drugs, you won't feel a thing." Then, he put his hand on my shoulder and said, "I'll see you when it's over." LYIN' BUNCH A FUCKERS! "Just breathe... your doing fine... it's almost over." LYIN' SOB!" Fuck that hurt... over and over and over. Now, I ain't a wimp but here's the deal. Just tell me that you are giving me a saline solution that will, in no way shape or form, relax me or make me not feel any pain. Tell me it's a placebo... a RUSE. I am a big 60 year old hairy-assed man that does not cotton to bullshit. BTW... don't even give it to me. Don't even put in a shunt, FFS! Especially when it's a TRAINEE doing it that can't even follow the admitting papers properly (she was under the supervision of an RN). Don't tell me it's gonna make it so you are "Gonna see me when it's over." Tell me, "This is going to be very uncomfortable and may even be quite painful for about five minutes." That shit I can take like John Fuckin' Wayne biting on a belt without having a belt to bite on. No fuckin' way were there any drugs in that... that was a saline solution mixed with "You won't feel a thing." bullshit.

The pain is almost gone as I have my own pain meds. And, I have no visible cancer. Biopsy results in six weeks as the doc is going on maternity leave. So... it's Vito's pizza again... I need some extreme comfort food that goes with my pain meds. >;-)

Ah, Still, you should write a soap opera! And Beedub could play air guitar.

I have to say, after so many years in the driving, busy surround of a Southern California city, I am bemused and fondly struck by the slow but strong pulse of life in my small North Carolina town. It is monitored by the heartbeat of the meandering Eno River, and the beat of sap in the boundless forests that surround us. A pleasant valley, populated by writers, academics, and scores of other articulate and intelligent types. You never run out of interesting conversations and you could spend lifetimes looking into it all.

In April I plan on a five-hour drive up into the Allegheny mountains of West Virginia for a picking and singing weekend which I am sure will be stunningly pleasant. Meanwhile the dog, the wife, the son and I are just quite happy finding our way in this new environment. Also there are lots of fine beers to be had in walking distance from home!

Ah, yes - Dial soap. One of the first deodorant soaps (so the ads say - in theory, all soap would be deodorant soap). My parents liked that one, hence, once I was away from home and able to buy my own soap - I bought Dial. Until I smelled more interesting soaps that roommates were buying and from there all hell broke loose in my soap buying. In New York City I tracked down the Caswell Massey store and bought fancy English and European soaps. In other parts of the country I found Crabtree and Evelyn. And as I found those soap dispensaries, you can also track a line of businesses that went out of business because I must have been the only one buying soap there. Now I prowl the aisles of the Vitamin Shoppe and World Market and my local Halal import market to find any soap that (drum roll, please) doesn't have coconut products. Because after many years of wondering, I finally figured out that I've harbored an allergy to coconut (sodium laurelth sulfate, the first or second ingredient - yup - it's coconut - and about 3 dozen more scientific-sounding names). Now I buy soaps made with olive oil, with shay butter, with Dead Sea salts (and look like they're chunks of dirt) and unlike Dial, they are lavender or patchouli . . .

Got a little carried away.

The soap which inspired my ire is actually Dial, but the curved, purportedly ergonomic and palm-fitting shape is shared by a number of commercial bar soaps today.

And speaking of paying for air, did you know there's a legal limit to the percentage of non-functional air fill that can be used in packaging? The McCormick spice company was sued and fined a while back because they changed the weight of black pepper per can from four ounces to three ounces without reducing the size of the can. The amount of dead air exceeded the legal limit. So, they were forced to change the can size. But did they reduce it by 25%, as logic would dictate? No way! They reduced it by as little as they possibly could and still be within the law.

By the way, the air in potato chip bags does not fall under the same regulation. It is considered functional air since it helps protect the bag from being crushed.

Also by the way, I'm sure this particular regulation is one the Trumpers would love to do away with. Make America Great Again by giving free-market capitalists free rein to charge exorbitant prices for as little actual product and as much empty space as possible! It'll be fantastic for the American economy! Really yuge! Just like the air-filled boxes it'll be packaged in.

We emerged from a really nasty cold spell--down to 45F. But now, the Equinox is upon us, in just a few more hours, and our chilly days will be past.

I drove with Dani twenty miles into the country north of here to a beautiful brick and timber chapel up on a hill where we heard a Women's Song choir sing sweetly and recite poems. It was just exhilarating, I am here to say. The uplifting beauty of their songs completely transcended my curmudgeonly cynicism about their metaphysics.

It's been a grand quiet Sunday here in the rolling green country of North Carolina about which I aim to learn more as time goes by.

The January ice storm was bad (power out for four days). The one last week was bad enough to give Mum "flashback" freakouts (power out from 2AM to 8:30AM and from 11AM to 1PM). Luck comes in threes they say...

10:36 AM ADT Sunday 19 March 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:
?Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick

A low pressure system will approach slowly from the south tonight and Monday then linger around the region into Tuesday. Precipitation from this system will begin over southernmost portions of New Brunswick early Monday morning as a mixture of light snow, ice pellets and freezing rain but should change to rain later in the morning as temperatures climb slightly above the freezing mark. However, as temperatures fall later in the day and the precipitation continues to push northward, there is potential for a prolonged area of freezing rain to form Monday evening and persist into Tuesday morning. At this time northern and eastern portions of the province are most at risk for freezing rain.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as freezing rain warnings may be required.

Sounds like BWL is using Dove. That's as fluffy as Ivory, regardless of the shape of the bar there's lots of air in the soap itself. I buy old-world type soaps made with olive oil and shay butter instead of fully nasty coconut acids and oils. And they're solid and last for a very long time.

Wal, ya see, Dub, they don 't pay no overhead for air since it is sorta omnipresent, and creeps in most anywhere whether paid or not. So it behooves them to sell you as much of it as they can. all disguised as soap. They figure by the time you finish popening the box, you won't notice, since their sold air has sliped off and mingled beyond all recognition with your local air. But you were too quick for 'em, I guess, and now they'll have to answer up for their wicked ways. If anyone could set those scoundrels down a peg you are surely the man for the job..

I am happy to report in other news that our house in California has been funded and the escrow should close by COB today, Wednesday, March 15th. We are as close as a red cat-whisker to completing this long and arduous jump, finally. Whooooof!

Why don't they just make soap in nice cakes with all 90° angles like they used to? Instead, they make the bars in weird shapes that require a big box, so you think you're getting a big bar of soap, but the box is 50% air.

It was a day of light rain that turned highly energetic after sundown. At a guess. Driving back from Raleigh, close to midnight, it was squint and slow down as the windshield wipers kept trying to keep up with the ferocious rhythms of rain.

But oh, my sibs, what a purely loverly evening I had at the Hibernian Irish Pub, sitting with Abbey Sale, our own renowned expert on old ballads both clean and soiled, and half a dozen other rare birds taking turns bringing old songs back to life. Good, sturdy, rollicking ones, plaintive ones, tragic ones, jolly ones. Two Guinesses later, the soul was replete with the joy of these brave voices restoring the glow of life to these pale shadows from long ago. Really, truly, Abby and his gang are gems in the wilderness. Amos is happy.

Tomorrow I start my invasion of Norway. Folks from there pillaged, looted, rapined, and burned the homes of some of my ancestors back a few years ago1 and we want the junk back, with interest. Of course, we did the same thing to them a year or so later. Then they came back to us, and we did them, and pretty soon we were all drinking mead together and alternately paying for the drinks. But tomorrow I go to SLC to fly to Chicago to fly to Stockholm on Wednesday to fly to Oslo (O'Slo if you're Irish) to take the train to Bergen to take a ship up around to Kirkenes and then back to Bergen where we take a plane to Copenhagen to fly to Chicago from which Pat and I will take a plane to fly back to SLC and take a bus back home on April 4. Then two days later Pat has surgery. Gonna be a fun trip, just like last year's to Hawai'i. But my axe is sharpened and my sword is unbent and the teeth marks are out the edge of my shield (I'm actually a berserker) and I'm sort of ready to go.
