Last night Dad and I talked about the many uses of old encyclopedias. Here are some ideas:
They help small children reach the dining room table
You can find really cool pictures to use for school collages
They can be turned into book crafts--like hollowed out treasure boxes
They are good late-night reading
They're helpful if the power goes out and you need an answer to a question
Use them with table leaves instead of mason jars to make ersatz bookshelves.
Fuel
Insulation
Bricks, as Stilly said

P.S. My middle son's jazz concert last night was WONDERFUL! Tom wore a cap and was a smooth cat.

I used to get the most horrible cases of pink-eye. Well, really red- eye. I don't remember the brand, but the bottle were closed with old Coke and Pepsi caps. The hangovers were unbelievable.

Donate those old encyclopedias to the local green builders and they can use them like bricks.

Good news about the reduced amount of surgery for Pat. What's scheduled is more than plenty go get over.

MOM, I got ointment for pink eye today. Pink eye! It's like I'm back in the third grade and was sent home from school. I can't go back to the office until the ointment has been in use for 24 hours.

Excellent!! Give her my Kudo and Congratulations!

By the way, unintentionally, Rapparee has come up with a NEW item for our compendium on spatulas. Using them to scrape squashed librarians from the floorboards. Oh, well done.

Good News From Pocatello

My wife will only need surgery (next Tuesday, February 1) on the right side. The anomalies on the left turned out to be benign calcifications.

If it's the "Compleat Hardbound Edition", a large fork lift truck is required when you wish to move it around from place to place...one of those things accidentally fell on my cousin David in the ancestral library, and he went missing for a week. When he was found, they had to scrape him off the floor with a large spatula. Rather than attempting to bury him, the family had him varnished with a transparent sealer and turned into a wall mural.

Why would you need encyclopedias when you have...WIKIPEDIA!!??

(Unless, of course, you'd like accurate information....)

Hey, Siblings,
My library is going through the reference collection and updating it. They've identified ten dictionaries and eight sets of encyclopedias that they'd like to replace, and they're giving employees and their families [you folks] first dibs, since they were very expensive sets. The dates of publication of the encyclopedias are 1958-1961, 1965, 1973, 1977 and 1985. Would anyone like one or two of the other sets, plus several dictionaries?

Instead of writin' the stories, I live 'em, buster. Hammett got some of his best ideas from me. I used to supply him with my old case files for a "stipend" (it's like money, only...it's smaller). You'd never guess how much I have contributed to classic crime fiction.

HE can read the labels on whiskey, beer bottles, and boxes of ammo, but it is a limited skill based on imitation, acquired during his apprenticeship under Dashiell Hammett, who was not at fault. Hammett thought he was training a writer to turn out flat-foot pot-boilers he could then publish under his own name.

Of course I can read! I been all the way through Raymond Chandler, mister, and I have read most of the Sam Spade stories too. Tried Mickey Spillane, but he's kinda vulgar.

Rapparee, I did not tell you about the SECRET ingredient. (If I had, it wouldn't be a secret, would it?) ;-D Ook! Ook! Without that you will not get the full effect, so ya better not try makin' your own.

Do you find you are forgettin' important things lately? I never forget to laugh, and I never forget to keep my guns loaded, but sometimes I forget to take the garbage out on time. I hate that. If you find you are forgettin' a lotta stuff, there is a memory enhancin' product I can recommend. It is powdered bananas mixed with red hot pepper and made up into suppositories. Every time you get a case of bad memory, you take one and shove it up you-know-where. It feels awful! Matter of fact, it feels so bad that you will probably never forget that particular matter again, cos the body has ways of protectin' itself against repeatin' a really bad experience, and yer body will automatically kick in and make you remember next time.

It so happens that I am sellin' bottles of this incredible memory enhancer for only $25 plus $5 shipping and handling.

But act fast! Supplies are runnin' low! In a week or so it may be too late and you will be sorry you forgot to act when you had the chance. Order NOW!!!! Play it safe and get 3 bottles for a bargain price: Only $70 plus $5 shipping and handling. You CAN'T PASS THAT UP!!!! DO IT NOW!

WE put three nine sixty one behind
As the night was drawing in
But the wind blew ice shards into our eyes
And we were blinder than the darkest sin.
And we should have stopped and made a camp
ANd let the good dogs rest
But our minds were fixed on the next o' Kay
ANd our hearts was froze in our chests.

Through a dark short night, we trusted to luck
And let Lead Dog find our way,
And we whipped and mushed like crazy fucks
Through that night and into day.
The ice was hard on the runners' sides
And hard on the dogs' cold paws
But they all sensed fire astride those sleds
And no care for nach'l laws.
When the cold long dawn came slowly on
And the black ice was turned to gray
Every driver there was sledding strong
Bound out for the next of Kay.

He did have a job for a while, sitting on the Blind River garbage dump, so the buzzards wouldn't land. Lost the job because no human would come there either and the garbage was building up in town. Shame was really disappointed because it was "all you can eat."

II:

We had run past thirty-nine and five
On a bitter afternoon
And the ice below was starting to go
And we had to pass through soon,
Or we'd all be dead and frozen hard
Or something even worse!
Like strapping reefs on a ninety-foot yard
Or reading MOAB verse!

All the dogs knew it was getting tight
And bad news was in the wind
It's a thing with dogs, and they're always right
They smell harm, like a nun smells sin.
So when Bruin started to clip and whine
And snap at the lead dog's toes
We knew he had something on his mind,
But what, we did not know.

Then the wind died down to a deathly hush
And the pale light faded to gray
But we yelled and whipped, and we made them mush,
All obsessed with the next of Kay.

Shame doesn't share any DNA with anyone else. He's unique in that, but only because both his father and his mother took theirs back when they saw what had been created. Folks at the U. of Blind River's biology dept. stripped out his DNA and found nothing at all.

ydna testing has traced my paternal family back to a Welch ships carpenter who eventually set up housekeeping in SC in 1735, then proceeded to procreate like a rabbit, and his sons and grandsons followed suit.    I got cuzzins in San Diego, Texas, Toronto, Portland, Little Rock and St. Louis (the family genes had the good sense to avoid Idaho.) The mtDNA is harder to trace. Some of that is the lack of sufficient paper trails for wives (and "not-wives) that makes it difficult to know where to look. Some of it has to do with the differences in the way ydna and mtdna are passed on.

I guess it all comes down to we are all cuzzins, tho' it is right painful to acknowledge I am kin to Shane.


the DNA deposited via the typed word here in this thread, all traceable to MOM, will, no doubt, one day change all the world's thinking about kinship.

Provided, of course, the phreds don't shred it all first.

A brief summation of MOAB:

Summation of an infinite sequence of values is not always possible, and when a value can be given for an infinite summation, this involves more than just the addition operation, namely also the notion of a limit. Such infinite summations are known as series. Another notion involving limits of finite sums is integration. The term summation has a special meaning related to extrapolation in the context of divergent series.

The summation of the sequence [1, 2, 4, 2] is an expression whose value, the sum of the sequence, is defined to be that of the repeated addition 1 + 2 + 4 + 2, namely 9. Since addition is associative the value does not depend on how the additions are grouped, for instance (1 + 2) + (4 + 2) and 1 + ((2 + 4) + 2) both have the value 9; therefore, parentheses are usually omitted in repeated additions. Addition is also commutative, so permuting the terms of a finite sequence does not change its sum. (For infinite summations this property may fail; see absolute convergence for conditions under which it still holds.)

Clams are bivalves, which includes snails and oysters, among other things. Bivalves have ganglia, such as the "cerebral ganglia" in snails or the "central ganglia" in clams. In short, bivalves have a sort of nerve pathway and central processing unit -- but it ain't much.
