As I descend into the Hellhole of my Kissmeass, I am lifted by a day long, intermittantlty, by times, banter with a fellow Mudcatter. An Irish Secret Agent living and lurking among the English in their very homeland. They suspect he is a spy but are not sure. Being polite, they remain simply suspicious, even tho he plays fiddle and is within a trio of those that play and write music of The Emerald Isle.

We spoke of much. We spoke of The Baby Jesus. We spoke of Noah and the polar bears in Palestine... even of Noah and the snake that betrayed Adam, the first man on Facebook, at risk of discovery by the Dutch. The Dutch. English? Germans? Austrians? Even SWISS? Nay... fear the Dutch. Wooden shoes? A simple ruse. Cute and cuddly? Do not fear the Dutch at your own peril.

Anyway, we came up with several ideas for new songs, none of which have anything to do with the Dutch. Ya don't wanna fuck with the Dutch. They got wooden shoes and The Manatee Brigade right? I mean, it's winter here and manatees can sneak right up to my back door without wearin camo... sneaky bastards. Just gotta close their eyes and lie in wait to ambush me on my way up ta yer Sobeys fer a carton a milk. They are ruthless!

In the end, we commiserated and held fast to the joyous truth that Erin is free of snakes... free from the evil which Noah brought to the rest of humanity upon his ark. Along with the polar bears from Palestine. And, more importantly, the Dutch.

Col. Henry Potter on M*A*S*H.

I've been in the kitchen all afternoon, took time to deliver one gift, and now it's back to the kitchen. Cookies for the kids and a few for the grownups.

Our ABQ mudcatter Mr. Brooks delivered a parcel to Mr. Thieme as part of the Secret Santa game this year. I told Mr. Brooks that Mr. Thieme didn't know he was in the game, so Mr. Brooks wouldn't be able to tease in the thread for teasing about such things. I see a note from Art and Carol this evening - perfect timing! YES!

Bless us all. I am happy to report that we have a very grown-up Barky on our hands for the Day. He is sweating ovwer departmental reorganization for which he is responsible, and play very fine guitar as well. He no longer barks. He walks andf talks like a real Hooming. We are very impressed.

I went to Mass (YES!! REALLY!!) at 9 p.m. and guess who was there?

Eiseley!!

While her oldest is in Poland, she has a Polish boy living at her place. He's Catholic, so she took him to Mass.

I also told the Pastor that I knew a great little place for duck hunting and I'd pick him up at 4 a.m. For some reason he said that at 4 a.m. he'd "be jello" and didn't want to come along.

That's okay, I'm not going anyway. Shooting ducks on a National Bird Refuge can lead to trouble.

Well, Mum and I got some stuff for the spring yard sale. Unless I put em on kijiji before that. Mum don't never say shit even if she had a mouthful but on the way home, she cut loose! Best laugh we've had in days. She said she wanted to look over at me but she knew she wouldn't be able to keep a straight face. I was amazed at her poise when she held up one 3-part gift and proudly displayed it for all and uttered, "Isn't that lovely?". She was hiding her face and I had to stifle myself and cover with a cough. It was true trash.

I home 1.5 hours ago and decided WTH, I'll see what this stuff smells like. Two small pump spray bottles of Eau de Merde that my niece sells (got two bonus air freshers hangy thingies for the truck). Wouldn't work until I turned it upside downy. A tiny bit half squirted and half sprayed and was immediately assaulted with acrid and vile odor which I cannot descibe. I left the kitchen in haste. I am now in the orifice and the assault continues. Hmmm... there is roughly 450 cu m of airspace in this house (I have forced air heating). The liquid volume estimate is 100 cu mm. Soooo, the volume ratio of Eau de Merde to air is 1:450,000,000. Since I can't open the windows like Rap can in his far more mild weather, I should be free from the reek in a matter of hours because I smoke and drink and they both numb the senses of odor and taste.

Turkey and ham dinner wasn't too bad. There was sparkly pop and I had a few smokes. >;-)

The presentries were fun when the autistic lad got a lot of gifts and he truly appreciated them. The joy I saw on his face made the trial worthwhile.

Now, about the fuckin cranberries in the turkey dressing..... there oughta be a law!

Oh, fer... Get yer window fan, plug it in, and get ready! Now take a sledge hammer and bust a big hole in the wall, away from where you sleep, eat and do stuff -- a closet is good, especially if it has a door. Put the fan so it pulls air OUT of the house and INTO the outside. Problem solved, especially if you used a closet with a door you can close after the odors are gone.

Remember that you still have various air pollution laws to deal with, so be able to shrug your shoulders and say "Who? Me?" to the cops just like you do to in church when you let off a good one during the sermon.

God bless you one and all, you sufferers. I had a little fire going for Xmas Day breakfast, and we had the choreographer and the high-tech entrepreneur and his wife and the rising young geek executive over for a big spread. It was kind of loverly, in fact, and we got one of them new high-tech Chromecast plugins for our TV. Most amusing. Mimosas, cronuts, bacon and scrambled eggs, strawberries and chocolate pearls for dessert, more mimosas and canned Christmas Music. Purely grand times, hashed out all the major issues of the world and everyone went home happy.

It got so warm that I had to take my jacket off, then my sweater. By the time brunch was done and I went outside to repair Tucker's rear bumper, I was working in my teeshirt in the balmy sunlight, which weas so thick I had to shovel it off the walk just to get to the car.

We spent a quiet Christmas working in the house. I destroyed a hard drive again and the PC is now ready for recycling. I, too, had to shovel sunshine off the walk and driveway, but instead I just let it sit there and melt. But then, we only went out to retrieve the newspaper. Bacon-wrapped filets, Yorkshire pudding, and sauteed green beans for dinner, just the two of us. We are spending quiet holidays this year, except for brunch on Sunday for maybe 28 people.

3 loads of laundry folded. One in the dryer, one in the washer. A short story finished... I gave up at 2AM and went to Oggieland with it well formed. So, I just checked the temp (a balmy -6) and decided it was snow removal time. I was putting on me hazard suit and noted through a window that it's FUCKIN SNOWIN! Checked the updated forecast and revised the ops plan. Put on my Jammies, cracked an ale and decided on toast and ice cream for supper. May as well shovel it all at once tomorrow morn. Efficiency is my middle name. Well, one of them, along with Procrastinate, Lazy and a few others.

Amos, you should get a Sunshine Blower and blow it... you know. >;-) BTW, I checked my 6/49 Lotto ticket and yer safe fer a while yet.

Texas sure isn't feeling much like Texas lately. It seems to have been cold for the last month. We're spoilt here, used to a few warm days then a cold one and some more warm days.

Rap, I don't plan to follow your example of killing equipment, but I have to work on the computer and hook up the various external drives to see what is on them. Probably time to retire a few smaller ones and reuse a drive enclosure for something with a few terabytes instead of a few gigabytes.

I remember the last real Nor'easter back in 92. 5'4" in two days. That drift pic on my Flickr page was taken after that one. Wish I had more pics of the storms back when I was a kid... we had a lot more snow back then, maybe because I was smaller or because we used to 'shovel' with shovels, pushers and scoops. Make ramps for the scoops. Still got the scoop! I went away to uni and came home fer Kissmeass to find out Dad and the neighbour went havies on a snowblower fer minor to medium storms.

Rap, the pleasure of potatoes is two-fold. Eating them of course, and knowing they are organically grown, but also digging them. When one grows a modest number of potatoes so harvest isn't drudgery, it's always a pleasant surprise to pull these beautiful tubers out of the soil, especially if you have an audience who has never seen a potato in the ground before. And especially if that audience is a child (or one of my children, grown now, but who still love some harvesting in the garden.)

They are organically grown. The Shoshone run huge potato farms and only grow them without artificial aids, rotating the fields and using "green fertilizer." They do use water from the Snake River Aquifer and I can't vouch for THAT.

Ine of the reasons why all the jealous imprecations of the Winter People never penetrate the San Diego cognosphere.

Ahhh what fun! I just got back from a nice walk in the crisp fresh air with Big Red. We were up and down the driveaway and walkway and he ate it up! He's a purebred and I have the papers to prove it. Yup, 100% Honda. Shiney red coat mottled here and there with chome. It's the diet of premium gas I feed him that makes his coat so shiny. Very obediant. I enjoyed the outing so much, I'll probably take him out again in an hour or two.

I have a 200+ mile view - straight up, that is. :)

For those of you wanting to grow potatoes who need a way to get started or do it in limited space, try this box that grows with the plants.

I grow the red lasota because they last longer and I like them best. It's a waxy potato that I often cut up and fry in a skillet with seasoning and olive oil, or put in soups, etc. When you grow potatoes they will sometimes emerge from the soil - keep an eye out and pile more dirt over them. When it comes time for picking any of them that have been exposed to sun will have green patches, and those green patches should be cut off before using the potato. Apparently that green part can make you a bit sick to the stomach.

Love the spud box. At the bottom : "You might also like". Now, I wonder if the tantric sex chair comes with a partner. I used to have tantric sex with the ex constantly. I'd just mention sex and she'd throw a temper tantric.

The green stuff? I read it was highly poisonous.

At 6:10PM, it will be 30 years since Dad went to the great boxing ring in the sky, courtesey of the Chalk River Nuclear Plant disaster. He received a Compassionate Pension (non-taxable) from The Royal Canadian Armed Forces. An an attempt to gag all the people involved in the cleanup. It more or less worked because all the guys knew what would happen if anyone spoke out. Took a while for them all to die but they all knew the mechanism and they all knew how to calculate a best before date so it was "take the money and run". Heh... every time I talk about it, someone says, "Jimmy Carter" was involved in it and it didn't kill him. Well, not a very high percentage of Generals get shot either.

I wish he had been around longer. We only became friends after he told me he was dying and that was only 16 months later, the last 4 of which didn't really count. If he'd stuck around, he might have been able to teach me some wisdom... of which I still lack as youse all know.

It's the quiet time of winter, when the nights start young and the mornings aren't sure when to start, and the year draws down to an end. Not just the year of months and days, of calendars and sessions and appointments, but the year of the stars' wheel and the year of the planet's heartbeat, drawing down. The quiet days before the calendar rolls over are good times to consider a span of time, what's been done in it, what's been left undone and unsaid.

I've done a lot--bouncing around for a good part of the summer, launching a novel, sailing in the Northumberland Straits and walking the dog. I've left a lot undone, too. My desk is cluttered with incomplete things I mean to do, vellities of hopeful intent, watered down by the endless supply of distraction and diffusion.

Let us resolve to firm up the completing of things for 2014 and mark it as a year of great doing, whatever the scale, and of goodness made manifest in the completion of good deeds.

I wish all Mom's chilluns a fantabulous year ahead. Waste not a drop of it on shame, nor on blame, nor on regret, but look forward and do with a will.
