[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:11:15 PM] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:11:22 PM] <Laurna> How is your summer?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:11:45 PM] <KK> OK. Not much of a summer, temperature-wise, but it's going well.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:05 PM] <Laurna> Warm enough here for me
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:06 PM] <jemler> it's been in the 40's here tyhe last couple of days.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:13 PM] <jemler> at night.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:23 PM] <Evie> cool is good
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:24 PM] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:27 PM] <Aerlys> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:28 PM] <Laurna> 97degrees right now
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:29 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:47 PM] <Aerlys> finally got some sun after a week
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:12:48 PM] <KK> It's 76 right now, at 7:12, and has rarely nudged toward the low 90's all summer. Wetter than usual, too.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:13:12 PM] <The_Bee> only a few 90-degree days here too
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:13:13 PM] <Laurna> Nice rain would be welcome here
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:13:41 PM] <KK> We're forecast thunderstorms for the next few days.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:13:42 PM] <Aerlys> When we returned from our trip, it was 55 degrees.. Just two days before we were in Nebraska and it was 110!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:13:48 PM] <Laurna> My lawn is mad at me for not watering it due to the draught
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:14:03 PM] <KK> 110 in Nebraska? Yuck!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:14:11 PM] <Aerlys> and humid
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:14:19 PM] <Evie> 110 in Nebraska? wow!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:14:27 PM] <KK> Double yuck. That's even worse than high temps.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:14:29 PM] <Laurna> That must have been fun
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:15:03 PM] <Aerlys> fortunately we were just passing through, but DH needed a nap, so we stopped at a park while he slept
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:15:15 PM] <KK> In the 40's, Jemler. Where <are> you?

[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:17:35 PM] <Aerlys> Oh, we have a new fur-friend now. An American bulldog/Dingo mix. Our friends moved to New York and couldn't bring him. He's almost all brindle. Very prety and sweet
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:17:51 PM] <jemler> keep him awayfrom babies
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:17:54 PM] <Jerusha> Dingo mix???

[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:18:27 PM] <KK> What does a bulldog/dingo look like besides brindle?

[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:30 PM] <Jerusha> Hi TerryOBrien
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:32 PM] <TerryOBrien> Good evening
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:39 PM] <Laurna> The party is just begun
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:43 PM] <Jerusha> Hi DR
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:44 PM] <jemler> everybody showing up!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:45 PM] <TerryOBrien> Just about forgot about tonight... just got back from GenCon
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:19:46 PM] <Aerlys> Hmm, he's as tall as our American Bulldog, but leaner. Probably weighs about 80 pounds compared to her 100. His ears are pointy, but longer and floppier
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:13 PM] <KK> Bulldioggy face, or longer snout?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:15 PM] <Aerlys> I'll have to try to upload a pic when the camera's working
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:17 PM] <KK> bulldoggy
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:21 PM] <Aerlys> longer snout.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:23 PM] <Jerusha> You should post a picture on the pets page, Aerlys
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:41 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, Aerlys, we'd like to see him! :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:43 PM] <KK> Definitely. He has to qualify as one of our more unusual pets.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:20:56 PM] <Aerlys> American Bulldogs have two types. Scotts are longer-snouted, Johnsons are much bullier
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:21:25 PM] <Jerusha> But how did the parents meet up with a dingo?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:21:32 PM] <Aerlys> no idea
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:21:33 PM] <Jerusha> Er, one parent
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:21:53 PM] <Laurna> lol side trip to Austrailia
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:01 PM] <Aerlys> visit to the zoo gone wrong?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:07 PM] <jemler> i just found out something about the bible. despite what you may have heard, Jeremiah was NOT a bullfrog!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:07 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:29 PM] <Laurna> Hand me some fish Evie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:43 PM] <Jerusha> Here's a flounder, Laurna
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:44 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:22:47 PM] * Evie hands Laurna a tin of sardines
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:11 PM] * Aerlys wonders if she'll open the can or not
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:14 PM] <Dennis> You made the fishes in the deep blue sea unhappy, Jemler.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:18 PM] * Laurna smacks Jemler over the head with a flounder and then spltaters the sardines after
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:29 PM] <Jerusha> Well done!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:37 PM] <KK> So, I'm not the only one anticipating a need for fish....
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:23:52 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:18 PM] <Laurna> Oh was that a closed can
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:27 PM] <jemler> ouch!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:30 PM] <TerryOBrien> fish? I'm late for dinner, don't tempt me
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:38 PM] <Laurna> Sorry should have rolled the tin lid back first
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:48 PM] <Evie> I had a mild panic earlier today, KK, when I couldnt find the black leather fabric for Joram's clothing, and couldn't figure out when I'd have time between now and DragonCon to run across town to get more. But then I found my stash.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:24:59 PM] <Aerlys> I'm sure he deserved it, Laurna
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:25:11 PM] <jemler> no i didn't
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:25:29 PM] * Jerusha nods in agreement
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:25:36 PM] <KK> brb
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:26:35 PM] <The_Bee> If yo udidn't deserve it, Jemler, I'm sure you will. ;)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:26:55 PM] * Laurna hands some fresh strawberries over to Jemler to make up for the closed can of sardines
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:28:15 PM] <jemler> i got that from a friend.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:28:48 PM] <Evie> Jeremiah?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:28:51 PM] <Aerlys> give it back
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:28:57 PM] <The_Bee> something is trying to download itself into my computer. does anyone know what ib.adnxs.com is?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:08 PM] <Evie> no, but block it
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:16 PM] <Jerusha> nothing good
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:26 PM] <Aerlys> sounds ominous
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:27 PM] <Evie> if you don't know what it is, it's probably nothing you want
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:37 PM] <The_Bee> I'm trying to close it. It ignores me.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:29:46 PM] <Evie> you could do a websearch for that to see if anyone has reported it
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:09 PM] <The_Bee> It doesn't seem to be succeeding.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:34 PM] <Dennis> Ot
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:40 PM] <The_Bee> I've ordered a new refurbished computer on ebay
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:44 PM] <Dennis> It's a virus.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:45 PM] <Evie> Avast antivirus is really good. It has a special mode you can use to run it before booting up Windows, so it can delete viruses that try to infect your computer on startup
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:46 PM] <DesertRose> Bee, that's a virus.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:47 PM] <Dennis> http://malwaretips.com/blogs/ib-adnxs-popup-virus/
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:30:48 PM] <Laurna> It sounds like one of those malware problems I had last month.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:31:33 PM] <The_Bee> Usually my AVG blocks viruses.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:31:55 PM] <Laurna> I now have malwarbytes-anivirus to stop that stuff
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:32:01 PM] <Evie> I started using Avast after I needed something for a virus that AVG let through
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:32:09 PM] <Aerlys> ck, that reminds me. I nned to call the curriculum company for my son's Geometry software. Out computer detects a trojan every time he uses one of the discs!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:32:20 PM] <jemler> i just did. i got one here. a client brought me huis laptop. it is locked by interpol claiming kiddie porn they want $30 to unlockit. i can't find the program to remove it.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:32:33 PM] <jemler> $300, not 30.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:32:37 PM] <The_Bee> VIPRE IS SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD. oNE REVIEWER GAVE IT TOP RATING.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:06 PM] <The_Bee> OOPS, FORGOT ABOUT CAPS LOCK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:11 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:14 PM] <TerryOBrien> jemler: Interpol doesn't do that ... its a variation on a blackmail scheme
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:14 PM] <Jerusha> Blocking geometry software may not be a bad thing from the student's point of view, Aerlys :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:18 PM] <Evie> Make sure the reviews are reputable and not planted by the manufacturer.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:33:43 PM] <TerryOBrien> There probably isn't such a program
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:08 PM] <Aerlys> now, a trojan with history software, maybe, but math??
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:24 PM] <The_Bee> what's the diference between anti-virus software and internet security software?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:27 PM] <Evie> Greek History, especially
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:28 PM] <Jerusha> I'll take history any day over math!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:48 PM] <Jerusha> Sorry, Aerlys, I was a little slow on that....
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:34:54 PM] <Evie> :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:01 PM] <Evie> So were the Greeks
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:06 PM] <Aerlys> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:14 PM] <Jerusha> At least I am not alone
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:15 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:19 PM] <TerryOBrien> Anti-virus protects against malicious software, internet security, among other thngs, protects against web sites trying to install malicious software through the browser
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:19 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:25 PM] <Evie> No, wait, the Trojans
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:39 PM] <Evie> OK, I need to read the Iliad again, it seems. :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:44 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:35:53 PM] <TerryOBrien> The malicious browser software isn
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:36:01 PM] <The_Bee> the review was by www.pcantivirusreviews.com Top 10 antivirus
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:36:27 PM] <TerryOBrien> isn't actually executable code run by the operating system but software run within the browser
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:36:27 PM] <Evie> OK. I usually check several review sites just to be safe
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:36:55 PM] <Jerusha> I confess, I leave it to DH
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:37:30 PM] <Aerlys> I remember watching a really awful movie about Helen of Troy. It was badly dubbed, a guy gets stabbed in the leg during battle, he grabs his chest and ies, and---worst of all--Helen is supposed to be dead and you can see her BREATHING! Plus, she had a schnoz that made my Uncle Bruno's nose look petit
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:37:46 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:37:51 PM] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:38:00 PM] <Aerlys> peitie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:38:06 PM] <Aerlys> forget it
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:38:24 PM] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:38:50 PM] <The_Bee> Evie--do you know any other review sites?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:38:53 PM] <Aerlys> great heckling material
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:39:10 PM] <jemler> anyone use kaspersky?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:39:21 PM] <Dennis> I'm sorry... in which version of the myth does Helen die?>
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:39:36 PM] <Aerlys> I said it was a stinker
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:39:55 PM] <Jerusha> Probably the incorrect version
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:40:18 PM] <Aerlys> the one Mystery Science Theater needed to do
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:40:21 PM] <Dennis> I'm reminded of a movie Charlton HEston was in called "The War Lord."
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:40:26 PM] <The_Bee> here's the ranking .http://www.pcantivirusreviews.com/Comparison/?avrtsid=2&gclid=CJnY7IbqkMACFc1i7Aod0BsA6w
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:40:46 PM] <The_Bee> How was it, Dennis?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:09 PM] <Evie> try CNet, PCMag, etc. Do a Google Search for "antivirus software reviews" and then go to the reviews on pages that belong to websites not owned by the software manufacturers
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:09 PM] <The_Bee> or should I say, how bad?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:11 PM] <Dennis> It's set in the middle ages, and the plot makes little or no sense. There's a siege and defenders start falling off the castle and dying before the attackers start shooting. But hey, there were castles.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:19 PM] <Dennis> It:)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:27 PM] <Evie> since of course they will put up glowing reviews of their own software
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:36 PM] <Jerusha> Castles are good
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:41 PM] <The_Bee> I think I got this one from CNet
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:53 PM] <KK> I'm back.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:56 PM] <Aerlys> How about "Krull" or "Ishtar?"
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:41:59 PM] <Evie> hi Back
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:01 PM] <The_Bee> rehi, KK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:01 PM] <DesertRose> Welcome back.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:03 PM] <Dennis> Hi, KK!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:13 PM] <Dennis> Or Krushta?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:14 PM] <Jerusha> WB, KK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:20 PM] <Evie> I loved Krull, but then again, I was young and not picky about movies. :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:43 PM] <Aerlys> you're the first person I know who liked that movie, evie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:43 PM] <The_Bee> The Blob
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:42:50 PM] <Dennis> Some of the "all-time bombs" aren't actually that bad; they're just not what people wanted or expected when they came out.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:01 PM] <Laurna> I love Krull too
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:05 PM] <KK> My physiotherapist lives nearby, and his golden retriever (who I know from the office) came wandering into the yard, where Scott collared him and brought him inside. (This has happened once before, several months ago.)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:12 PM] <jemler> which one bee, there were 2
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:17 PM] <Evie> I loved the girl's hair. I wanted mine to curl like that, so I got a perm. A 1980s perm. And then I made the mistake of brushing it.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:18 PM] <KK> So we had to call the owner, who came and got him immediately.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:21 PM] <The_Bee> some really bad movies develop cult followings.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:24 PM] <Jerusha> He just stopped by for snacks, KK?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:36 PM] <The_Bee> Both; I'v never seen either.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:43:48 PM] <Aerlys> Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:04 PM] <Dennis> It's no Return of the Killer Tomatoes. That's for sure.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:12 PM] <Evie> Keep in mind that Krull came out before there were a lot of fantasy movies out. We were glad for whatever we could get.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:13 PM] <KK> Steve thinks the dog is maybe starting to go a little senile. He's about 8, I think, which is nearing the end of the line for a big dog like golden. Lovely dog, though.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:31 PM] <Laurna> He wanted to say hi to your dogs KK. How did you dogs do with the neighbors dog in th house
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:37 PM] <Aerlys> Poor doggy
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:41 PM] <jemler> i liked the original. other original favorites: the day the earth stood still, the thing, miracle on 34th street. remakes all sucked.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:41 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, I have to go afk for a while, but if chat is still going when I get back, I'll see y'all then. If not, I'll post when I get back unless Evie beats me to it. :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:46 PM] <The_Bee> Starz seems to specialize in bad movies, according to the Rotten tomatoes ratings.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:44:47 PM] <KK> I liked The Warlord. Krull, not so much.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:01 PM] <Aerlys> the only remake I really liked was Sabrina
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:20 PM] <Evie> I loved Ladyhawke
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:28 PM] <Aerlys> Who doesn't?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:30 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, Evie!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:36 PM] <The_Bee> A lot of remakes change the original ending. The Bad seed, for example.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:38 PM] <Dennis> Ladyhawke is awesome. The soundtrack is hysterical.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:48 PM] <Laurna> I fell in love with the Hero in Krull loved his good looks and his circular knifes.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:52 PM] <KK> THey were ok with him inside, with us there, but I think Booker would have been a bit fierce out in the yard. He's pretty territorial.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:45:53 PM] <Aerlys> Allen Parson's Project
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:46:04 PM] <Laurna> Lady hawke is my all time life favorite film
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:46:05 PM] <The_Bee> seeya, DR
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:46:53 PM] <Laurna> Glad your dogs were nice to the neighbor'
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:47:03 PM] <Laurna> 's dog
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:47:08 PM] <Dennis> It had a great cast. too.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:47:31 PM] <The_Bee> Becket was one of my faves
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:47:44 PM] <Evie> I discovered Ladyhawke close to the same time I first read the Deryni books, so when Navarre rode into the scene in his black clothing, my first thought was "It's Alaric Morgan!" :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:47:55 PM] <Aerlys> LOL
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:19 PM] <Dennis> I didn't like Becket at all.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:20 PM] <Aerlys> Hmm, Rutger as Alaric?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:25 PM] <KK> Loved Becket. And El Cid.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:35 PM] <Aerlys> Love El Cid
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:36 PM] <Dennis> I love The Lion in Winter.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:49 PM] <The_Bee> I'm recording a lot of movies on my dvr, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to watching them.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:51 PM] <Laurna> Evie I loved Navarre just as I loved Alaric I never put the two together before but you are sooooo right
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:48:56 PM] <KK> Back then, Rutger was gorgeous. A strange character, though, from all reports.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:49:17 PM] <Evie> I haven't seen El Cid yet. I love The Lion in Winter, but I'm happy enough that Kelson's family isn't like that household. ;-)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:49:24 PM] <Aerlys> He was in a couple of movies I didn't like much
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:49:43 PM] <jemler> i saw el cid years ago. i must have been 15.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:49:48 PM] <Laurna> And don't forget the Fresian horse... I now have three half fresian horses because of that film
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:49:56 PM] <Dennis> Henry and his sons would have been Furstans.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:09 PM] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:09 PM] <The_Bee> What are Fresians like?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:16 PM] <Aerlys> gorgeous
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:34 PM] <Laurna> Be black loving horse that surprisingly love water and taking baths\
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:49 PM] <jemler> they're cheaper than expensians.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:53 PM] <Evie> speaking of Furstans, I read an opening chapter of a fanfic today from the POV of young Charissa right after the Marluk's death. I'm hoping the author will post it on the Rhemuth Castle forum
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:50:56 PM] <KK> The horse in Ladyhawk was a Frisian.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:04 PM] <Laurna> Oh yes
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:14 PM] <Jerusha> Is it a new one, Evie?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:17 PM] <Laurna> Feathered feet and long manes
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:23 PM] <Aerlys> why does that ring a bell, Evie?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:30 PM] <Jerusha> I read one on Deryni.net
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:33 PM] <KK> Evie, you must see El Cid sooner rather than later. Some great costues in that.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:38 PM] <Evie> Yes, Jerusha. I don't know if he's actually posted it to FFN yet. He sent it to me via a PM in FFN
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:51:58 PM] <jemler> evie, wasn't that in deryni archives?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:52:06 PM] <Evie> I'll see if it's available through Amazon, KK. Netflix didnt have it when I checked
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:52:22 PM] <The_Bee> I read it eitheron-line or in an issue of DA-Zine
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:52:24 PM] <Evie> No, jemler, this is a different story that he's apparently still writing
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:52:52 PM] <Jerusha> He'll be sharing on fanfic, right?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:52:52 PM] <Evie> This isn't the Charissa story from Deryni Archives, although that one was excellent
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:03 PM] <Evie> I hope so, Jerusha
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:11 PM] <KK> Er, I wrote a story from Charissa's POV, right after her father's death. Could you be thinking of that one?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:19 PM] <Jerusha> Need.more.fanfic
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:22 PM] <Aerlys> probably :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:28 PM] <The_Bee> I was wondering about that!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:33 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, I think so, KK
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:37 PM] <jemler> need.the.kings.deryni.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:39 PM] <Aerlys> I'm working on it, Jerusha
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:41 PM] Join Alkari has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-f4370f0d.internode.on.net).
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:45 PM] <Jerusha> Yeah!!!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:50 PM] <jemler> hi alkari
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:54 PM] <The_Bee> G'day, Alkari
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:55 PM] <Alkari> Morning all!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:55 PM] <Jerusha> Alkari! Hi!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:58 PM] <Laurna> Hi Alkari
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:53:59 PM] <Aerlys> Hi Alkari
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:10 PM] <Evie> This is a fanfic from a guy who followed all my stories on Fanfiction.net, got tired of waiting for me to post the last two, so he found them on the Rhemuth Castle forum, and now he's started writing his own. And it's a Charissa story, and it's really good.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:13 PM] <Dennis> John from tLoW would be a good match for Aldred in taht story.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:39 PM] <Jerusha> Looking forward to it, Evie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:41 PM] <Aerlys> The Lor of the Wings?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:48 PM] <Laurna> Sounds good
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:54:53 PM] <Evie> No, KK, not yours. Another writer's fanfic take on Charissa's story.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:16 PM] <Dennis> Sorry, tLiW
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:17 PM] <Jerusha> charissa had a bit of a rough life
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:19 PM] <Dennis> The Lion in Winter.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:28 PM] <Evie> Hi, Alkari! Long time, no see
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:33 PM] <Aerlys> got it :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:43 PM] * Alkari waves at Evie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:55:49 PM] <The_Bee> Who wrote the fanfic about Charissa's lover?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:12 PM] <jemler> no one who survived
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:13 PM] <Dennis> Me type gud.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:14 PM] <Evie> Though come to think....KK, I don't think I've ever seen your version of young Charissa's story. Or have I? What was it published in?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:16 PM] <Jerusha> I know the story, but can't remember the author
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:21 PM] <The_Bee> Falkenberg, I think his name was.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:32 PM] <Alkari> Faukenburg?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:40 PM] <The_Bee> It was included in the Deryni Archives book.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:42 PM] <Dennis> It's in the Deryni Archives anthology.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:50 PM] <Jerusha> that was the character. I think the author was somebody Lohr
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:54 PM] <Evie> Lover to Shadows, by Lohr Miller
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:55 PM] <Dennis> I can remember the name though. I remember it very vividly.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:56:58 PM] <Evie> In Deryn Tales
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:10 PM] <Jerusha> That's him!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:13 PM] <The_Bee> oh, right, Evie
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:20 PM] <Dennis> er, can't remember the name even though I remember the story very vividly.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:26 PM] <Dennis> Man, I can't brain today at all.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:33 PM] <Evie> It's about 1 foot away from my chair. :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:40 PM] <The_Bee> It was really good.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:57:42 PM] <KK> Yes, Lohr Miller. A very talented writer, now immersed in practicing law, I believe. I wouldn't want to face him in a courtroom.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:58:11 PM] <Jerusha> Or in battle. Or maybe that's the same thing, :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:58:17 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:58:23 PM] <Alkari> The one in Deryni Archives was KK's own story 'Legacy'.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:58:58 PM] <Dennis> Legacy!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:07 PM] <Dennis> It's from Wencit's PoV.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:08 PM] <Evie> I thought I had a copy of Deryni Archives here too, but where did that one slip off to?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:24 PM] <The_Bee> Remind me: Were there two short story collection, Deryni Tales and Deryni Archives?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:33 PM] <Jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:33 PM] <Alkari> The fanfic one was in Deryni Tales, and is called 'Lover to Shadows' by Lohr E Miller
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [07:59:35 PM] <Evie> Yes, Bee.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:00:16 PM] <Laurna> I have them both and read them both many years ago. though I have reread young Derry's story many times sence then
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:00:35 PM] <The_Bee> DA was all by KK, IIRC
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:00:53 PM] <Alkari> The Deryni Tales book has that interesting story about Denis Arilan the Talmud student.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:01 PM] <Evie> Yes, I loved that one
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:07 PM] <Jerusha> And Dhugal at Court
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:15 PM] <Alkari> Me too - a really great take
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:21 PM] <Evie> And Jasta's story about Duncan
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:26 PM] Join DF64 has joined this channel (Mibbit@4CA975.06D306.BECEE2.AC4E37).
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:31 PM] <Laurna> I love Young page dhugal another favorite
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:32 PM] <Alkari> And KK's own 'The Green Tower'.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:33 PM] <Jerusha> Hi DF64
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:36 PM] <The_Bee> Hi DF
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:37 PM] <DF64> 12hi all
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:39 PM] <Evie> hi DF
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:40 PM] <Jerusha> That was Jasta's story?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:41 PM] <Aerlys> Hi DF
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:42 PM] <jemler> hi df
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:01:54 PM] <Alkari> KK, I want to know much more about those towers in Coroth Castle! (hint, hint)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:08 PM] <Jerusha> Me too
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:09 PM] <Dennis> Dhugal at Court was Shiral's right?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:13 PM] <Jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:18 PM] <Evie> yes, Dennis
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:20 PM] <Dennis> That was a nice story.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:23 PM] <Aerlys> Now I'll have to dig up m copies again
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:26 PM] <jemler> more about sir se and the anvilers
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:02:57 PM] <Alkari> I can just imagine Brendan, Briony and young Kelric exploring the castle
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:03:15 PM] <Dennis> I'm curious if KK knows more about the accident that killed Prince Nimur in Childe Morgan.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:03:15 PM] <The_Bee> Maybe they'll find a Portal.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:03:23 PM] <Jerusha> And not getting into trouble at all, of course....
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:03:23 PM] <Alkari> Even moreso than Alaric would have done, because he didn't live there as much
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:06 PM] <KK> Well, Alaric inherits the library in the green tower, in The King's Deryni and goes up with Llion to inspect it, after he's been given the key.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:15 PM] <Aerlys> Im sure she knows more, Dennis. It;s whether she chooses to tell us is the real question
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:19 PM] <Alkari> Oooh, great.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:33 PM] <Alkari> I am SO looking forward to that book!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:42 PM] <DF64> 12we all are
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:48 PM] <Aerlys> indeed
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:49 PM] <Jerusha> Oh yes!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:50 PM] <Dennis> Yes.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:04:59 PM] <Alkari> At least Santa should bring it before Christmas, even down here :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:23 PM] <Jerusha> The holidays will be more merry than ususal
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:25 PM] <KK> I'm proofreading the page-proofs right now. :-)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:32 PM] <Evie> Yay!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:39 PM] <The_Bee> I've sometimes who was the last person to know the Coroth Portal's location. I think someone must have died without passing on the knowledge.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:40 PM] <Dennis> Yay.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:05:45 PM] <Evie> are you doing a reading at DragonCon this year, KK?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:06:07 PM] <Jerusha> KK, is it hard to read your book over and over?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:06:11 PM] <Dennis> Is that your last step, KK?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:06:24 PM] <Alkari> Me too, Bee - and I wonder if it will be found by accident
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:07:15 PM] <jemler> i'm surprised richenda hasn't asked azim for help.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:07:17 PM] <KK> Yes, Evie. And Jerusha, I've only read it all the way through a few times. Otherwise, it's been in chapter-size bites. This is refreshing.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:07:28 PM] <Jerusha> Ah, good.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:07:50 PM] <Evie> Which scene will you be reading? Or have you decided yet?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:07:53 PM] <Laurna> Neat KK.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:08:03 PM] <Alkari> Yes, seeing the whole quilt instead of just the patchworkpieces
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:08:51 PM] <KK> Exactly, Alkari.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:09:10 PM] <Alkari> jemler, I am not sure Alaric would want Azim digging around in Coroth Castle
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:09:34 PM] <Alkari> Even if he is 'Uncle Azim' to Richenda!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:09:48 PM] <KK> I'll read from something farther along in the book.

[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:10:07 PM] <The_Bee> I thought Azom was Rothana's uncle.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:10:14 PM] <The_Bee> Azim
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:10:17 PM] <Dennis> I dunno. Alaric seems to have a very good relationship with Azim. Now *Kelson,* would probably be a little more wary.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:10:48 PM] <Alkari> Well, I don;t know that Alaric fully trusts the Camberian Council,and he knows that Azim is on it
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:11:07 PM] <Alkari> Maybe after Vivienne's death ...
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:11:08 PM] <jemler> he was richendas teacher as well, that implies a certain trus.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:11:11 PM] <jemler> trust.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:11:28 PM] <Evie> Something besides the horse scene, KK? It's a great scene, but DragonCon regulars would have heard it twice now, so they might want to hear another scene if there's a good one that will work on its own for an hour's reading.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:08 PM] <jemler> with barrett delaney being kelson's step-father, well...
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:30 PM] <The_Bee> The Camberian council seems to have lost track of its original purpose.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:45 PM] <KK> It will be later in the book, maybe when Alaric goes to the Investiture of the Hort of Orsal.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:52 PM] <Alkari> I don't think Alaric would want the Council saying how HE could use a portal in his own castle
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:52 PM] <Evie> Cool!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:12:58 PM] <Jerusha> Kelson refused a seat on the Council, but what about Araxie?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:13:00 PM] <Alkari> Oh, interesting KK.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:13:12 PM] <KK> Alaric would be reluctant to let other Deryni poke around in his castle.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:13:18 PM] <Dennis> I think the 1123-1128 edition is far more reasonable than the 1082 group, though.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:13:35 PM] <Alkari> Yes, but Alaric still has a lot of trust issues with the Council
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:13:44 PM] <Jerusha> And Arilan
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:14:03 PM] <Alkari> And there are protections on the Portal in Rhemuth Castle to stop them wandering around
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:15:47 PM] <Dennis> Have a good night, everyone. I'm going to head out. I want to finish the new Robin Hobb book before I fall asleep tonight.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:01 PM] <Alkari> Bye Dennis. See you when I get back frommy travels!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:02 PM] <Evie> Goodnight Dennis

[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:39 PM] <Alkari> This Thursday ")
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:44 PM] <Aerlys> you leave soon, don't you, Alkari?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:47 PM] <Alkari> Fly out just after 9pm
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:16:48 PM] <Jerusha> Have a great time!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:02 PM] <The_Bee> for how long, Alkari?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:03 PM] <Aerlys> How exciting
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:13 PM] <Alkari> We are away just over 6 weeks
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:19 PM] <Jerusha> Wow
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:28 PM] <KK> Wow, should be a great trip.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:40 PM] <jemler> where are you going?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:47 PM] <The_Bee> Tell us all about it when You get back--or even during if you can.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:47 PM] <Evie> KK, Duncan's black jerkin fits Joram perfectly, although his chausses and shoes would be too big, so in the interests of time, I may give Joram Duncan's black jerkin and then just make a new one for Duncan
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:17:58 PM] <Alkari> Hope so. I have been meaning to touch base here for ages, but I was away last Monday and interstate the week before ...
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:18:10 PM] <Evie> When do you return from the trip, Alkari?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:18:12 PM] <Alkari> Europe, jemler
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:18:37 PM] <KK> Whatever works, Evie.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:18:53 PM] <The_Bee> I'd like to go on a river cruise some day.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:03 PM] <Jerusha> Me too, Bee
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:07 PM] <Alkari> We are doing one - Amsterdam to Budapest!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:18 PM] <The_Bee> Cool!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:29 PM] <Jerusha> Need a porter for your luggage?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:35 PM] <Alkari> Then 3 more days in Budapest, then across to Vienna for another couple of days before flying home
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:41 PM] <The_Bee> Are you also getting a Eurrail pass?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:44 PM] <jemler> they're not on the same river
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:19:49 PM] <Alkari> We can fly to Sydney direct via Dubai from Vienna
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:05 PM] <Alkari> They have canals, jemler :D
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:07 PM] <KK> River cruises are actually pretty affordable, Bee, especially if you travel with a friend. THey have 2 for 1 deals frequently. And I recommend Viking cruises.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:16 PM] <Alkari> We are going on Scenic
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:25 PM] <The_Bee> Thanks, KK. Good to know.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:34 PM] <jemler> viking cruises? do you have to row? :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:48 PM] <Jerusha> Only in business class
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:48 PM] <KK> Fortunately, no.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:20:56 PM] <Alkari> LOL - they leap off a pillage the local places as they pass.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:21:00 PM] <Aerlys> no, but you have to kidnap a couple of thralls to carry your luggage
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:21:11 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:21:51 PM] <Alkari> I have made sure my walking shoes are all well and truly broken in
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:21:58 PM] <The_Bee> My problem is, my arthritis would make it hard for me to explore the cities along the way.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:22:02 PM] <Alkari> Am in love with the American brand Munro
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:22:12 PM] <Jerusha> Good plan, Alkari
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:22:25 PM] <jemler> you don't have to explore, they have maps now! :)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:22:27 PM] <Alkari> it is one of the few makes that actually does narrow fittings
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:23:37 PM] * The_Bee throws a giant squid at Jemler.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:24:27 PM] <Alkari> Now I just have to make sure that my suitcase weighs in at no more than 16kg
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:24:47 PM] <Jerusha> That can be a challenge
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:02 PM] <Jerusha> And you need to leave room for shopping
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:07 PM] <Alkari> We are allowed 30kg business class, but only 20kg on the cruise. Well, they say you have to get ON the cruise with 20kg - nothing about how much shopping you can do on the way
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:13 PM] <Evie> Or just ship the shopping home
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:20 PM] <The_Bee> The old advice is, take twice as much money and half as many clothes as you think you'll need.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:28 PM] <Alkari> And I can do a lot of damage in a few days in Budapest and Vienna!!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:25:42 PM] <Alkari> I am trying to follow that advice Bee!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:26:00 PM] <KK> Take lots of things that will mix and match, to keep the clothing down.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:26:31 PM] <Alkari> Thing is, we are going to be 2 weeks at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy, and that will mean 1. slogging round a cross country course one day, and 2. sitting outside in all weathers
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:26:50 PM] <KK> Why only 20 kg on the cruise, I wonder? It isn't like a ship has weight restrictions. It won't fall out of the ocean or anything....
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:11 PM] <KK> All weathers will probably be hot.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:15 PM] <Alkari> I think it is to stop people taking ginormous suitcases that don't fit under the beds for storage
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:23 PM] <The_Bee> Well, you don't want to sink it.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:25 PM] <KK> And France is hot in summer.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:36 PM] <Alkari> And the weather can be totally variable going into autumn
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:27:57 PM] <jemler> march in gwynedd
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:28:07 PM] <KK> True, they've had a lot of extremes this summer, at least in the UK. France is probably similar.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:28:08 PM] <Alkari> by the time we reach Budapest at the end of September, it an be the equivalent of our winter days!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:28:16 PM] <Aerlys> You need Mary Poppin's bag
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:28:52 PM] <KK> Budapest in late September should still be quite pleasant.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:29:15 PM] <Alkari> When we checked the 'average weather' sites for Budapest and Vienna at the times we will be there, they say around 16C during th day - which means anything from 10-20C probably!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:29:30 PM] <Alkari> 16C during the day is our winter!!
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:29:58 PM] <Jerusha> That's what it has been this week, here
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:30:21 PM] <Jerusha> But it's been a very cool summer
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:30:57 PM] <Alkari> Our nights have been down to single figures, even minus in inland areas, but the days have been really warm and sunny, anything from 17-23C
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:31:11 PM] <Alkari> But it has at last started to rain and it is bucketing down now
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:31:50 PM] <TerryOBrien> Its been unseasonably cool this year for me
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:32:10 PM] <Jerusha> Where are you, TerryOBrien?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:32:21 PM] <TerryOBrien> Indiana
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:32:35 PM] <TerryOBrien> Hasn't hit 90 this summer I think
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:33:00 PM] <The_Bee> did Shiral say anything about not being here this week?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:33:01 PM] <Jerusha> Similar here (though a degree or so cooler)
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:33:28 PM] <TerryOBrien> This oast week in Indianapolis was either rainy and cool or dry and sunny and up to the mid-80s
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:33:33 PM] <Jerusha> Not that I remember, Bee
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:33:47 PM] <The_Bee> maybe she's busy at work.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:02 PM] <Aerlys> heh, we have the usual mixed bag. (0's last Mnday, followed by a rainly week in the 60's and 70's during the day
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:14 PM] <Aerlys> 90's
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:26 PM] <The_Bee> Alkari, do you need the rain?
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:31 PM] <Jerusha> I thought "0" was a bit cool
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:34 PM] <Alkari> Desperately, Bee.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:44 PM] <Alkari> We have had barely half an inch in June
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:34:53 PM] <The_Bee> so does northern California
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:35:14 PM] <Alkari> And about the same in July
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:35:30 PM] <The_Bee> Parts of the U.S. have floods, other parts have drought.
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:35:40 PM] <Alkari> So this is lovely soaking rain, which will do the gardens the world of good for spring
[Sunday, August 17, 2014] [08:35:49 PM] <jemler> well. i have an appt tomorrow. until next week.

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
