Sage flops down on the sun porch to pout. She was rude to one of our stupid dianavandense members in the thread about the new vaccine for HPV. Time to cool off a little.

Okay. I'm better now. I don't type with asterisks very often.

The GReat Moment of Sage's Rudeness? Kind of like the inverse of the Harmonic Convergence? The waning of the Age of Aquarius?

Makes a kinda sense. Mars having ascended and all...

Rapaire doesn't suffer fools gladly either, but sometimes he hasn't any choice. Sometimes he just suffers.

And speaking of suffering, have I told you about

Yes. Just speaking quietly in case the party of the first part should pop in and see herself mentioned.

I told Joe the thread about the vaccine in Texas should be closed, then ended up arguing with her royal behindness. But there is no point in arguing with her, she rarely makes much sense. I'm pounding my head against the wall over there. I see she has been back but I'm not going to bother. I've had enough shooting fish in a barrel for the evening.

I bet I forgot to mention that it has been raining again. A lot. Seems a hurricane has slopped over onto the state. You know what they say--when it rains, it pours.

MOM, what are you doing slumming around down here in the rough part of town? Up you go!

I've got the kettle on and there's a fresh batch of scones in the oven. Make yourself comfortable!

See, some of your children still care about you when there aren't any fancy numbers to be had ;-)

Some bakers operate on a broader "Kneed the dough" basis.

Some shins operate on a broader "knee to toe" basis.

I have just heard that 900 prisoners in Peru jails donated their own food rations for two days to aid the victims of the recent quake there. This is a Fine Thing.

And especially for Rapaire, a tip of the hat from none other than the late Mrs. Astor, the Grande Dame of New York's old money society:

"Mrs. Astor ...who died on Monday at 105, led by inclusion. She had none of the old snobbery against the new rich, inviting them into the inner sanctum of philanthropy.

For her 100th birthday luncheon, when she was asked whom she wanted as guests, she replied without hesitation: "One hundred librarians."

Parties were part of her job; she'd champion her causes while she worked the room. She told me she went out every night, "to meet interesting people."

"Hopefully," she said, "I'll be seated next to thinkers."

For years I'd see her at a party and she'd say, "Oh, Bill, I don't feel well tonight." Then they'd start the dance music and she would forget all about it.

She hoped she would "go," as she put it, while she was out dancing."


There ya go, Rapaire. Don't say I never did nothin' for ya.

The morning is cool and pleasant here; the hot midday sun is still in the offing. BBW is selling her car today; an ancient lovable old Geo four-banger. She has been given a beautiful little Prius from her Mum, who is buying a new one. What a stroke of fortune, eh?

Yes. I wish such good fortune would visit my daughter, who needs a vehicle, but we're all too poor to gift her with one (and she'll value it more if she buys the first one herself, anyway, but that doesn't make all of the picking up and dropping off any easier).

Precisely. Barky just recently had an unfortunate accident with her Camry which ran it past the write-off stage (repairs exceed 70% of value). So she is on the market for a used car also, and the write-off from the insurance is only about 5K, which severely limits her choices. She can do it, but the chaos of unfamiliarity with the process drove her to despair, which is why I spent a few days in San Jose, getting the business put into some sort of order. This time, the car will of her choosing, and she will be borrowing the dough from us until the insurance pays out. Which will make it a little more real to her what it means, in experiential terms, to have a car.

They learn, but they learn some things a lot faster than other things. Makes you wonder how the evolutionary advantage materializes, sometimes... :D

Just home from a fantastic concert at my folk club , then dinner out, then talking, drinking and singing till the wee small hours. When our concerts go so well, I sometimes look at the crowds of happy people and think - WOW! I did this! These people are all here because I started this thing 10 years ago. Makes ya feel pretty good!

And that guy Victor Mishalow, who plays this amazing 65 string Ukrainian instrument, the Bandura, is also a lot of fun. At the restaurant, he got it out of its case, and did some of his more funny stuff, such as "Moscow Drug Club", "Click Go the Shears" to the tune of the Volga Boatmen, and Chastity Belt, sung as only he can sing it. He puts on this Ukrainian or Russian accent for some songs - and he looks the part too, but he actually grew up in Australia and now lives in Canada, in Toronto, so he sounds more Canadian than anything else.

It's late now and I'm going to bed. If the number happens while I'm asleep, that's fine. A round thousand is nice, but pinwheels are my specialty. Have fun!
