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?

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.

"Lookit, Herman! Flars!" (delightful James Thurber cartoon of yesteryear, as powerful and aggressive woman drags on somewhat beaten-down and reluctant looking husband's arm, ecouraging him to join in her delight over the suddenly discovered presence of some flowers)

Some other dreadful Americanisms of that sort:

"tare" (terror)
"meer" (mirror)
"Yerp" (Europe)
"Tronna" (Toronto)
"Wadder" (spoken through the nose...means 'water')
"Feb-you-wary" (means February)
"ex-cape" (escape)
"Ar-tick" (arctic)
"irregardless" (regardless)
"disorientated" (disoriented)

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.

That was an outrageous typo when I said that I was suffering from anorexia! LOL!!!

What I meant was that I am suffering from "amnesia". ;-)

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).

Here, MOM--have some of my healthy breakfast of fresh strawberries covered with vanilla yogurt. Sorry about forgetting you out on the porch last night--I see that it rained. It's a good thing it stayed pretty warm and your quilt is only damp down at the bottom edge.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I don't know about melatonin, Amos, but milk does not agree with my system. I have been medically advised not to drink it, and I haven't in fact had any desire to drink it since I was about 7 years old. I loved it up till then....and then I couldn't stand it from that point on. Adult animals do not drink milk in natural conditions, let alone cow's milk, so I would guess my body was telling me something.

There are many people whose systems are not well designed to digest milk, including most Asians, from what I hear. Human beings need human milk, not cow's milk. They need it until they grow out of infancy, then they are ready to eat and drink other things instead...like fruit, fruit juices, vegetables, vegetable juices, meat, grains, legumes, etc. That's just natural common sense.

PART II

At twenty-three six fifty
The ponies glowed with sweat,
THey were striving for the lap flag,
But they hadn't seen it yet.
Big Mom was stretching wide and lean,
Lopin' along with a grin,
Watching the tails of the two ahead,
Brown Derby and Bright Glim.

Now the crowd was getting mad as hell,
And the sky was growing dark,
There was rainclouds gathering overhead,
And in the bettor's hearts.
They knew Big Mom could break away,
They could see it in her eyes.
But she didn't surge, and the bettors sighed,
And hoped their bets was wise.

I tried to get to sleep over 2 hours ago, Stilly. No such luck. So I just got up again out of bed and here I am. If I could have just one wish it would be...

...the ability to fall sound asleep within a minute or less and sleep peacefully for 7 or 8 hours.

If I could have two more...

...to be young again and have a chance to do the things in my life all over again but quite differently from last time.

...perfect health.

At Mudville Jr. High tempers were simmering in the heat. Even with the windows open the school was 95 degrees. With only 2 weeks left until summer vacation rebellion was in the hot stifling air.

In the band room Bruce was fanning himself with a cymbal and Kitty was bent over looking out the window. She yelled "Hey Ted reun and get me an ice cream" I looked out the window and saw 7th period boys gym class walking their 2 laps around the ball field. "Gimme some money!" yelled Ted. Kitty threw some hall passes out the window that fluttered like tiny combines down 3 stories.

Amos couldn't stand the stuffy library any longer and made his way to the band room when the bell rang. Instantly mumblings of discontent and whining filled the hallway..Its too hot...they should let us out early...I'm leavin...
When the second bell rang the announcment squeal and mike noise filled the school with half the students still dragging themselves through the hall. It was Principal Spone. "Attention Mudville Jr. High... Several buses have overheated so the Torrence Ave and Verna Drive route students will be walking today. Also there was a rumor that there will be early dismissal today but that is not the case, we will have dissmisal at the usual time"...BOOOs could be heard from students and even a few teachers from all directions.
In the band room Mario picked up a Sousaphone and pointed out the window and blew a big BLLLAT as loud as he could. Laughter gave way to a small chant somewhere Mr Spone is a fink Mr. Spone is a fink...
and then Spaw said "Lets go outside" ... Don said "blow it out your... wait, lets bring our instruments" The band teacher Ms. Sage asked "where are you going" and one of the muffled replies sounded like " I hafta rinse my horn out.
Soon a small contingent of the Mudville band began to improvise on the chant MR SPONE IS A FINK when the drums arrived, kids were hanging out the windows yelling Yeah Mr Spone is a fink.
When the intercom came back on with a squeal it was virtually drowned out by the band and chants. Wioth a rallying cry STRIKE ! Strike! kids were leaving class and going outside to the sound of the drums and horns. Lockers and books joined in the demonstration as kids filed out the doors.

The whole school was outside with shirts coming off and the girls unbutton everthing they could...MR SPONE IS A FINK now with flourishes from a clarinet and a piccolo.

Mr SPone had made his way to the atheltic field club house where the big stadium megaphnes were. "NOW HEAR THIS, EVERYONE WILL GO BACK TO CLASS AT THE NEXT BELL OR EVERY DANCE FIELD DAY AND GRADUATION PAERTY ARE CANCELLED"
The band and shant sort of sputtered to an awkward stop and the bell rang. Gripping loudly kids began to file back in the brick oven called school.

When the second bell rang everyone but Bill Max and Amos were inside. Bill Max and Amos stood in silent protest with one arm raised and instantly became the legends, the heros and the scape goats for the impromptu school strike.

The kids already overheated from shouting and celebrating were now broiling. The sight of the magnificent 3 was all it took for a new chant and earnst exodus to begin " F U MR SPONE FU MR SPONE
This time the cafeteris was lotted of some drinks and some ice and the great party of 1965 had begun.
