[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:43 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:44 PM EDT] <jemler> what's that?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:46 PM EDT] <drakensis> hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:46 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:47 PM EDT] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:48 PM EDT] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:56 PM EDT] Nick Washburn is now known as Laurna.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:11:59 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:01 PM EDT] <revanne> More than Darcy is currently getting😊
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:04 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, folks.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:09 PM EDT] <revanne> Hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL for a good reason Revanne
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:21 PM EDT] <Jerusha> So he wishes!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:26 PM EDT] <omandoc> Nope. Action didn't work
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:33 PM EDT] <omandoc> Hi KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:12:48 PM EDT] <bynw> omandoc: are you on a tablet and is it actually typing the / character?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:13:00 PM EDT] <Evie> DFK, are you using / and not \?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:13:05 PM EDT] <jemler> try logging out, then back in. restart the program.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:13:32 PM EDT] <revanne> How's this week been KK?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:14:03 PM EDT] <Evie> I wondered why I kept hearing quiet talking in the background, and then realized I still had Bynw's video playing in an endless loop behind this window. LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:14:16 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:14:22 PM EDT] <omandoc> What I type just disappeared but says I have 3 unread messages. Confusing
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:14:47 PM EDT] <revanne> Lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:14:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> We had our first cool night last night let me get some good sleep in.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:15 PM EDT] <revanne> We had our first frost last night.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:27 PM EDT] <Laurna> "Frost?" shiver
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:41 PM EDT] <bynw> where does it say 3 unread messages? click on it or touch it
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Our fireplace has been runnung all weekend
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:43 PM EDT] <KK> It's a bit less hot today; not necessarily much cooler. Will this summer heat never end?!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:15:43 PM EDT] <Laurna> We finally got below 60
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:01 PM EDT] <revanne> That's why I am currently snuggled with two hot water bottles
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:02 PM EDT] <Evie> Are you typing it in the same place you would type to chat in the chat window, or somewhere else?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:04 PM EDT] <bynw> it's 56 degrees here and raining ... not summer anyu longer for me
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:17 PM EDT] <jemler> it's 83 here now
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:27 PM EDT] <Jerusha> It's 6C here
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:41 PM EDT] <Evie> It feels like August here still.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:16:57 PM EDT] <drakensis> it doesn't here
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:09 PM EDT] <Evie> Leaves are still mostly dark green
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:13 PM EDT] <drakensis> not winter, but it's certainly no longer summer
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:27 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Ours are brilliant fall colours
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:43 PM EDT] <omandoc> I did log out and back in. No change
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:44 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Leaves, that is
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:17:57 PM EDT] <revanne> The leaves are turning here. We have some gorgeous maples in our nearby park.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:08 PM EDT] <bynw> omandoc: are you on a computer or mobile device?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:18 PM EDT] <omandoc> Tablet
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:36 PM EDT] <KK> Bynw actually send me a new link to try last week, but I forgot when I was logging in today. I think it's in my phone.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:39 PM EDT] <bynw> is the chat loaded in the irccloud app or a browser window?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> We don;t get the pretty fall colors here.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:18:58 PM EDT] <bynw> thats OK Katherine, always another day :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Or snow
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:12 PM EDT] <jemler> log out. exit the program. reload the program. log in.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:15 PM EDT] <Evie> We don't get them as much here either. We get some reds and yellows, the occasional bit of orange-rust, but a lot of brown
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:28 PM EDT] <revanne> Not liking the darker evenings though.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:29 PM EDT] <omandoc> I clicked on it under chat and went from there
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I agree, revanne
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:19:44 PM EDT] <Evie> I think you have to live somewhere colder than here earlier in the season to get the really vibrant colors
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:20:02 PM EDT] <bynw> omandoc: then its probably in a browser window chrome or firefox depending on your tablet's default browser unless its an apple device
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:20:36 PM EDT] <omandoc> Not apple
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:20:41 PM EDT] <KK> No color here yet, though there are a lot of dead leaves on the ground, probably blown loose by the remnabts of hurricane a few weeks back.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:20:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> The leaves are green one day and then they fall off the tree on the first bout of wind. No pretty colors. unless you have a liquid elm try or Japenise elm. Those stay small but are very pretty
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:20:52 PM EDT] <revanne> Our autumn colours are usually pretty good
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:21:13 PM EDT] <bynw> omandoc: if you didn't install the irccloud app yourself then it's the web browser that its loaded in
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:21:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Ours are awesome this year
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:21:45 PM EDT] <Laurna> nice Jerusha
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:21:53 PM EDT] <omandoc> Guess I'lll just have to stay Omandoc which is part of my email
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:15 PM EDT] <drakensis> it is your alias now
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:19 PM EDT] <bynw> omandoc: do you see either a icon that looks like a gear or looks like 3 horizontal lines?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:28 PM EDT] <revanne> Had a walk in Sherwood Forest on Friday - some amazing old oak trees - one about 600 years old. No Robin Hood though.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:32 PM EDT] <omandoc> We still have august here
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:57 PM EDT] <omandoc> On my desktop
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:22:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> No Friar Tuck, either?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:04 PM EDT] <bynw> or 3 dots that are on top of one another
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> Little John did not stop you from crossing a creak. no did he. And Frey Tuck was not there to greet you?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:17 PM EDT] <omandoc> See the dots
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:30 PM EDT] <jemler> omandoc, where are you?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:43 PM EDT] <omandoc> Love the idea of a walk in Sherwin a forest
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:23:53 PM EDT] <revanne> Nope - nor the Sherrif of Nottingham
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:24:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> Is Serwood Forest a thicker Forest than most?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:24:19 PM EDT] <omandoc> In Norfolk Virginia
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:24:38 PM EDT] <Laurna> I would think it would be very touristly with pathways that everyone wants to walk through.

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:17 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, DR.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:41 PM EDT] <revanne> Me too Laurna
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:43 PM EDT] <Evie> I did my Happy Anniversary call to my folks a couple of hours ago.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:49 PM EDT] <Evie> They are all set to move here this week.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Duncan it is like magic madelions.. lets you stay in touch with your friends. lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:57 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi DR, hope you are continuing to improve health wise
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:30:59 PM EDT] <revanne> Hi DR
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:31:32 PM EDT] <revanne> I hope the move goes smoothly for them
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:31:36 PM EDT] <Laurna> That is a fast move. I hope it all goes smoothly.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:31:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> my mom just sold her place and is moving next week too.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:00 PM EDT] <derynifank> That's exciting Evie. Know you will be glad to have them close and settled
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:15 PM EDT] <bynw> derynifank: after the chat hang around for some tech support. you may have to answer some technical questions about your tablet there too
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:17 PM EDT] <Duncan> I know, Lady Laurna. I enjoy chat nights. They don't involve boiling water, wooden dowels, or other unpleasantness.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:29 PM EDT] <derynifank> Ok
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't know. I was doing better, but today I'm just exhausted, and everything is blurry at any distance unless I look through the "reading"/lower part of my bifocals. I'm going to call my primary care doctor in the morning about that, and I actually have an appointment already scheduled with my neurologist (just a follow up but well timed) tomorrow as well.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:53 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol Very Good to hear Duncan
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:32:56 PM EDT] <jemler> good luck.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:33:52 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hope all goes well tomorrow DR
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:34:01 PM EDT] <KK> Good luck!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:34:03 PM EDT] <Evie> Good timing on that appointment
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:34:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> DR I hope you feel better soon. That cold took me 5 full weeks to get through. you don't realize how sick you are until you start feeling better.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:34:13 PM EDT] <revanne> Sorry you're not too good DR
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:35:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> I was finaly perscribed steroids to get rid of the cough
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:35:08 PM EDT] <derynifank> Really have my fingers crossed that you will feel better soon
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:35:10 PM EDT] <KK> Reminding people to be sure to get their flu shots. Flu is nothing to ignore.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:35:29 PM EDT] <jemler> got mine thursday at the clinic.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:35:31 PM EDT] <Evie> I just got my shot last week. They are free at my workplace.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:00 PM EDT] <KK> I got mine 2 weeks ago, and Scott got his Friday.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:03 PM EDT] * revanne wonders what His Excellency is doing with Wooden dowels and boiling water , then realises it might have to do with missing heads.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:20 PM EDT] <Laurna> EECK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:30 PM EDT] <derynifank> Went with my husband yo his doctor and they gave both of us a flu shot
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:43 PM EDT] <KK> So, Evie, how close will your parents be to where you are?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:57 PM EDT] <Duncan> I have as little as possible to do with such instruments of torture.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:36:59 PM EDT] <jemler> my thoughts on that would be better discussed i confession. :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:12 PM EDT] <Evie> They'll be about 15 minutes away
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:15 PM EDT] <jemler> my thoughts on that would be better discussed in confession. :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:24 PM EDT] <KK> Not bad. Nice place?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> Right Jemler?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:49 PM EDT] <Evie> Lovely apartment complex. I haven't seen the actual unit they'll be in, but the model apartment was really nice.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:37:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> But the flu is eorks torture than the shot
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:38:08 PM EDT] <revanne> Too lazy to go downstairs and get a purple stole so you're safe Jemler.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:38:30 PM EDT] <KK> I had an itchy arm for nearly a week, but not as bad as a mosquito bite. It went away.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:38:39 PM EDT] <Evie> True, DFK, but I think His Excellency was referring to boiling water and wooden stakes, not the flu shot.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:38:40 PM EDT] <derynifank> Worse
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:38:53 PM EDT] <revanne> Sounds really good Evie
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:39:27 PM EDT] <derynifank> Oh
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:39:31 PM EDT] <jemler> if the catholic church ever had female priests, would the ritual be "Bless me Mother, for I have sinned"?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:39:37 PM EDT] <KK> The new pre-loaded syringes have really tiny needles, and are nearly painless. I didn't feel mine, and neither did Mother or Scott.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:40:28 PM EDT] <revanne> Some Anglican women priests are called Mother so possibly.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:40:29 PM EDT] * bynw doesnt like needles
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:41:20 PM EDT] <Laurna> My mom just dropped off her twodogs so she can move easily this comming week. Poor Winnie is staring at me like"Where did mom go?"
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:41:32 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm not a huge fan of needles myself, but I barely feel the flu shot needle.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:41:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> Need to do some puppy hugging.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:41:39 PM EDT] <derynifank> No one likes needles but prefer it to having the flu which is worse and lasts and lot longer
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:41:44 PM EDT] * revanne agrees with Bynw
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:42:00 PM EDT] <bynw> poor puppy
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:42:36 PM EDT] <derynifank> Separation anxiety
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:43:36 PM EDT] <Evie> How is LBM?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I've never had a problem with needles (not that it's fun to get a shot or blood drawn or whatever, but it's just not a thing that causes me any particular anxiety), but yeah, the sore arm and the malaise the next day beat the flu, no contest.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:32 PM EDT] <Evie> I just had a very mildly sore arm this time around.

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:43 PM EDT] <bynw> hi bee'
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:46 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi bee
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I have voluntarily and purely for decorative purposes had three holes pierced in both ear lobes and one hole in the cartilage of the right ear, so. :D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:52 PM EDT] <jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Bee.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:54 PM EDT] <KK> LBM is doing pretty well. A twingey back today, but she took an Aleve and I've got her icing it. She was doing better when I left.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:44:56 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi everyone
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ow, not fun, but hopefully not serious (re: LBM's back).
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:21 PM EDT] <The_Bee> good to hear LBM is doing better
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:35 PM EDT] <Evie> I can tell I have an aspiring pastry chef for a daughter, because when you mentioned icing it, my mind automatically went to "What sort of frosting?" LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:50 PM EDT] <bynw> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:45:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Evie, that kind of icing is WAY more fun than icing an injury/painful body part!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:09 PM EDT] <Evie> If the icing doesn't help, try fondant. ;-)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:11 PM EDT] <derynifank> True
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:15 PM EDT] <bynw> are you talking a 7 minute frosting? a rich buttercream ...
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:36 PM EDT] <The_Bee> LBM could lick her wounds.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:46 PM EDT] <Evie> Hopefully the icing (with ice!) will help
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:46:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I want to find a recipe that mimics that bakery frosting that's very light and almost tastes like whipped cream, but it's a little thicker than whipped cream.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:47:24 PM EDT] <KK> I'd love to find that out, too. Love that kind of frosting.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:47:42 PM EDT] <Evie> I picked up a pair of socks to make a doll sweater from today. It has little pizza slices knit into the pattern, so it should make a fun sweater.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:47:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I had the Publix (supermarket) bakery bake a birthday cake for my ex-fiance (when he wasn't an ex), and he wanted yellow cake with that light frosting and strawberry compote between the layers. That was an a-freaking-mazing cake! So yummy!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:48:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> confectioner's sssugar, but I can't think what else.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:48:16 PM EDT] <KK> Sounds wonderful.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:48:25 PM EDT] <Evie> That does sound good
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:48:33 PM EDT] <KK> Probabloy cream, too.'
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:48:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, yeah, probably confectioner's sugar (icing sugar across the pond), maybe some kind of dairy product (whole milk or cream), maybe even some egg whites for that light texture.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:18 PM EDT] <bynw> now i'm hungery
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:26 PM EDT] <KK> Don't think egg whites. Not the right texture.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mother has taken to watching The Great British Baking Show, so she and I have started to converse in UK English where food ingredients are concerned.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:33 PM EDT] <Laurna> That whipcream like butter icing will be on the wedding cake. The taste test was delicous.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:47 PM EDT] <derynifank> I love that light icing
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:49:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, you're right, the egg whites would make it too stiff, even if you beat the daylights out of them.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:18 PM EDT] * Evie imagines DR standing over the egg whites, flogging them
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:23 PM EDT] <jemler> load up your web browsers, search for 'bakery frosting'. you get all sorts of hits.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Uh, no.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> We tried the surgery icing at the same time but it was awful in comparison.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Beating with a whisk or an electric mixer. I am not a kitchen dominatrix.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:50:59 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:03 PM EDT] <KK> While our California friend was visiting a few weeks ago, he introduced us to "Chopped." Interesting program.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:07 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:25 PM EDT] <Evie> sugary icing, Laurna? Because surgery icing makes me wonder what the heck goes on at your hospital! ;-)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:33 PM EDT] <bynw> my wife watches everything almost on the food network
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> www.allrecipescom List "frosting" plus one or two ingredients
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:51:45 PM EDT] <Laurna> No for the wedding cake.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:05 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes, I know. I meant the sugary vs surgery bit
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hey, the surgeon(s) and anesthesiologist(s) and support staff might get hungry during a long procedure!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:08 PM EDT] <derynifank> Surgery icing? What were you cutting ?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:11 PM EDT] Nick The_Bee is now known as Bee.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:22 PM EDT] <bynw> KK: Chopped is a great show. Basket has 2-3 things that go together and then 1-2 things that should be with the others. Make something good
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:25 PM EDT] <Laurna> HEHE yes oh yes
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:52:59 PM EDT] <Evie> brb, going to put up my bowl before Luke tries to get into it
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I mean, a lot of surgical procedures are fairly quick (I'm not sure I've ever had one that went over two or three hours), but some of the really complex ones can take a while.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:08 PM EDT] <KK> Some ingenious out-of-the-box thinking sometimes, re ingredients.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:08 PM EDT] <Evie> (Had dinner just as chat began)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:10 PM EDT] <revanne> DS introduced me to that baking show DR

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi MerchantDeryni
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:53:42 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi MD

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I like the cooking competition shows like The Great British Baking Show and Masterchef: Kids, where they're competitive but not mean to each other.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:19 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Hello: oh dear god the tryptophan. 2 plates of turkey, stuffing,corn and potatoes and rolls.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:20 PM EDT] <KK> Separating conjoined twins would come to mind, re long procedures. THankfully, none of us have had to endure same.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's enough mean behavior in the world; I don't really want it in my entertainment.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:29 PM EDT] <Bee> Hi Merchand Deryni
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:35 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, MD!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:39 PM EDT] <Evie> Sounds good
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, that, and probably some trauma-repair procedures.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:44 PM EDT] <Evie> Starting Thanksgiving early?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:54:55 PM EDT] <bynw> not in canada
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:08 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Turkey day was today in Canada. yummy
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:10 PM EDT] <Evie> Ah, true
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:28 PM EDT] <Evie> I didn't realize you were in our neighbor country to the north
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:38 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> so now my husky is pacing around because she knows she gets mashed potatoes and stuffing in her kibble
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:49 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Yeah I am a Canuck.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:49 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:51 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> eh
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:55:51 PM EDT] <revanne> Turkeys over the pond get lucky until December
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:01 PM EDT] <Laurna> I hope you left us enough turkey for our Nov meal.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:05 PM EDT] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, shucks. I have Canadian Thanksgiving marked on the RC calendar as tomorrow. Did I use a bad source?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:34 PM EDT] <KK> Lucky husky.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:36 PM EDT] <Laurna> Is it eh or ah
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:41 PM EDT] <Evie> All our US turkeys mourn their Canadian relatives and wonder how long a flight it is to the UK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:50 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> it is tomorrow. But my wife made it today.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:53 PM EDT] <revanne> Lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:56:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, okay, cool.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:11 PM EDT] <derynifank> They keep making holiday season earlier . Eventually they will be back where they started
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:17 PM EDT] <KK> Is tomorrow a holiday, then?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:20 PM EDT] <Bee> same as our Columbus Day?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I just didn't want to have the date wrong. A few months ago, I had the thought, "Hey, not all our users are in the US, so I ought to include non-US holidays on the forum calendar."
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:37 PM EDT] <jemler> Merchanderyni, while I did not vote for him, I would like to offer my apologies regarding President Trump.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:57:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hey, can we not with political talk?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:58:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's a pretty contentious topic, and this is not the place for it.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:58:02 PM EDT] <Bee> Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples Day
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:58:33 PM EDT] <bynw> no political chat please jemler . thank you. unless it is the politics of the 11 Kingdoms
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:58:38 PM EDT] <Laurna> Sail the ocean blue
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:58:47 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, lots of people passionate on both sides of the political spectrum. Nuff said.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:59:21 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Yes tomorrow is a holiday here in Canada
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:59:46 PM EDT] <Bee> here in the USA too
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:59:46 PM EDT] <bynw> i'll happily create a politics channel if people want to use it :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [5:59:53 PM EDT] <Evie> Just a friendly reminder of our forum Code of Conduct: http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php/topic,2301.0.html
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:00 PM EDT] <revanne> We don't have a holiday now until Christmas 😕
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:04 PM EDT] <Laurna> KK in your saints days at the end of the codex I found a day called Chirsterpher day. for the patron saint of travelers. it would be Lu;y 26
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:10 PM EDT] <derynifank> Canadian Thanksgiving?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> July 26
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:19 PM EDT] <KK> Nothing's closed, though.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:26 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Yes tomorrow is CAnadaian Thanksgiving.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:00:42 PM EDT] <Evie> I wondered about the month of Lucy. ;-)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:01 PM EDT] <derynifank> Happy Thanksgiving to our neighbors to the north
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:04 PM EDT] <Bee> a whole month?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> I was wondering if that had any backing to Christopher Columbus. or if there was another Christopher he traveled at a much earlier time?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The youngest Pevensie and the girl in the blue dress from the Peanuts comic strip would like there to be a month of Lucy. :D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:21 PM EDT] <Laurna> Stipid rented fingers
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:26 PM EDT] <Laurna> stupid
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:33 PM EDT] <bynw> lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:35 PM EDT] <derynifank> Lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:36 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:39 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Just a day to give thanks for the harvest, according the the 1957 proclamation. Been celebrated since 1879
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> St. Christopher, I believe, lived much earlier than Christopher Columbus.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:01:49 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving_(Canada)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:07 PM EDT] <Bee> Saint Christopher. Legend said he carried a child across a river. The child turned out to be Jesus.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:11 PM EDT] <bynw> yes St Christopher is not Christopher Columbus
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Per a quick wiki search, St. Christopher died in 251 CE/AD, so yeah, way before Columbus.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:40 PM EDT] <Evie> The name means "Christ-bearer," IIRC
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It does.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> St. Christopher, patron saint of travelers
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:02:53 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah St Christoper is about 1500 years before Columbus
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:09 PM EDT] <bynw> yes Christopher does. I know it for a fact.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Columbus signed his name with the "Christ" part in Greek lettering and the "opher" section in Latin.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:15 PM EDT] <Laurna> Ha now i understand
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:26 PM EDT] <KK> I think he ws official demoted a number of years back, but people still regard him the patron saint of travelers.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you look up images of Columbus' signature.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:30 PM EDT] <revanne> Although I think he was demoted to being of doubtful provenance at Vatican II I still have a medallion in my car
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:31 PM EDT] <KK> Can't hurt.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:42 PM EDT] <bynw> yes he was and the people rejected that idea
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:50 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Christopher Columbus is the patron saint of seredipitous travel. Go looking for India, find the Americas :P
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:03:56 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:10 PM EDT] <KK> That sounds about right.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:13 PM EDT] <Evie> He was looking for those darn transfer portals
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:13 PM EDT] <bynw> well to be fair he didnt know there was another continant in the way
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:15 PM EDT] <derynifank> Lol MD
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:31 PM EDT] <KK> If he'd pai attention to the Vikings....
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:39 PM EDT] <revanne> Given the age of my car I need plenty of help
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:42 PM EDT] <Evie> The ancient Greeks could have told him he had his estimate of the Earth's circumference wrong.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:51 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> See in my fanfic Universe he would have discovered Camberland. They would have taken over that area by 1492
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:04:53 PM EDT] <bynw> well no one paid attention to them except to make sure they werent being attacked again
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:05:01 PM EDT] <drakensis> I'm going to go crawl off to bed. cya

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:06:44 PM EDT] <bynw> so i opened up #soapbox for those who want to talk politics since it might be nice to have a place for it since it;s not in here :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:06:55 PM EDT] <revanne> I'm going to follow suit - busy day tomorrow. Somewhere north Midlands I think Drakensis said.

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:09:17 PM EDT] <jemler> drakensis was using skybroadband.com, in GB.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:09:19 PM EDT] <Laurna> than I reallly hope it had a good feeling.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:09:26 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:09:49 PM EDT] <bynw> there are some NPCs that have Deryni dreams too in that game of ours

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:10:51 PM EDT] <Laurna> We have been playing almost a full year, now.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> the anniversary will be coming up.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:21 PM EDT] <bynw> almost. it was just around the US turkey day when we started
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:37 PM EDT] <jemler> my anniversary is thursday.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:40 PM EDT] <bynw> for the characters its been a few scant weeks
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:48 PM EDT] <bynw> if that
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:11:57 PM EDT] <Duncan> All my dreams are Deryni dreams.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:16 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Long running campaigns are a lot of fun. I ran a D& campaign for 5 years, and we have a Musketeers game (All for One) that is almost at 6 years.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Wash was only a captive for a few days in game time!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:32 PM EDT] <derynifank> Wow
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:39 PM EDT] <Bee> What took Wash so long to get free? Were the dice always against him?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:43 PM EDT] <bynw> my other game has been going since 1983
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:53 PM EDT] <Laurna> Torenthi cursed dice
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:12:55 PM EDT] <derynifank> Wicked five
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:13:12 PM EDT] <KK> For the gamers among you, I met an interesting guy at Dragoncon, Aleron Kong, who has written a series of books based on role playing games. He gave me a copy of the first one, and I finished it a couple of days ago. Interesting read. He writes well.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:13:14 PM EDT] <derynifank> Dice. I HATE ac
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:13:20 PM EDT] <Evie> It was only 3 or 4 days in-game, Bee, but it took us months to plot it and get it written.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:13:38 PM EDT] <Bee> aaah, okay
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:13:59 PM EDT] <KK> He's also an MD.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:14:10 PM EDT] <derynifank> Everyone did a great job
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:14:21 PM EDT] <Evie> That's a cool combo--doctor, gamer, writer.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:14:22 PM EDT] <Laurna> Nice KK
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:14:31 PM EDT] <KK> I now understand a bit more about what makes rpg's so intriguing for so many of you.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:14:57 PM EDT] <Evie> It's like getting to be a character in your favorite fantasy series.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:05 PM EDT] <Bee> The RPG I'm used to are shorter, a few weeks at most.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:07 PM EDT] <bynw> KK: You didnt learn that with Ann and having some fun with DAG? :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:14 PM EDT] <Evie> and not knowing how things will turn out because it's up to the dice rolls sometimes
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> and up to what others in the game do
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:51 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> We also have shorter games. Playing a session tomorrow in "Achtung Cthulu" WW2 with nazis and cthulu
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:15:54 PM EDT] <Laurna> Can not plan too far ahead
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:16:08 PM EDT] <bynw> the dice giveth and the dice taketh away
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:16:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> and take and take and oh wait that roll gave me this. COOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:16:36 PM EDT] <Duncan> Not knowing how often your author will dose you or your cousin with merasha.... 😉
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:16:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:16:51 PM EDT] <bynw> that;s true Laurna, i;ve had to scrap a lot of ideas due to player actions with their characters and then come up with something on the fly
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:17:12 PM EDT] <KK> He doesn't go into the dice aspect. The main character gets somehow transported into an rpg, and he sets up the stats icons. I found those a bit intrusive, but he also tells a pretty interesting story. Lots to think about.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:17:44 PM EDT] <bynw> sounds somewhat similar to Guardians of the Flame series
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:18:28 PM EDT] <KK> Google him and you'll learn more. He seems to have quite a presence in cyberspace.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:18:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> Alaric most definitely rolled 1,1 when he got pricked with Merasha on the church gate.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:18:50 PM EDT] <bynw> i've written down his name :D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:18:58 PM EDT] <Evie> Luke is here assuming I need a furry paperweight to hold my stomach down.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:19:31 PM EDT] <bynw> well cats know best
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:19:31 PM EDT] <Bee> Has yoour stomach been acting up?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:19:46 PM EDT] <Evie> No, aside from feeling like it has the weight of a fat cat on it.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:20:16 PM EDT] <Evie> A hot, fat cat
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:20:51 PM EDT] <Evie> It's like being pressed into the recliner by a vibrating, fur-covered hot water bottle.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:20:54 PM EDT] <bynw> my girl is like 12 pounds ... sad still that i only have one of them now. i sure miss her sister
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:21:18 PM EDT] <KK> Sasha was up here beside me for quite a while this afternoon, until he heard Scott making foog-getting noises in the kitchen.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:21:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> Have you thought about a new companion go both of you?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:21:53 PM EDT] <Evie> It's 89F here, so I need a fur-covered hot water bottle on me like I need another hole in my head!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:22:01 PM EDT] <Bee> only 12? I thought her breed were more like 20-25.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:22:01 PM EDT] <KK> 12 pounds is fairly heavy for a Bengal, isn't it? Especially a female.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:22:27 PM EDT] <bynw> not for a female ... males are a lot more
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:22:45 PM EDT] <bynw> my baby girl who is no longer with us: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Y5LW9SUSxF2W3Sw68
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:22:48 PM EDT] <KK> Well, clearly Bee and I have different impressions re Bengals.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:23:08 PM EDT] <Duncan> I'm more of a horse person. Thank God those don't sit on laps!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:23:25 PM EDT] <Bee> The name must haveconfused me. It reminds me of Bengal tigers.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:23:32 PM EDT] <KK> Even Bassets can be quite a lapful.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:23:53 PM EDT] <derynifank> Looks like a sweet kitty
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:23:56 PM EDT] <bynw> this is what you want bee: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengal_cat
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:24:07 PM EDT] <bynw> make sure your sound is on for that video too
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:24:07 PM EDT] <Bee> Melantha is just over 11 pounds T last weeighing
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:24:15 PM EDT] <KK> No, Bee, I just had the impression that Bengal cats were more delicate, like Siamese--though they can also get pretty big.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:26:23 PM EDT] <Laurna> Now mom's other dog Bou is barking at me like where did Momgo? Let me do so more cuddling.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:27:03 PM EDT] <KK> Where is your mom moving to, Laurna?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:27:37 PM EDT] <Evie> I don't think you need much arm-twisting to give puppy cuddles,Laurna
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:28:07 PM EDT] <Laurna> Next town over from where she is at. About 20 minute drive from my house. she just wanted to be in a park with a club house and a swimming pool
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:28:20 PM EDT] <bynw> my grandpuppy ... a lab ... thinks she's a lapdog
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:28:54 PM EDT] <KK> Sounds like a good move, then.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:28:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Speaking of dogs, have y'all heard of Wolfenoot?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:03 PM EDT] <Evie> I have. :-D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:07 PM EDT] <Bee> ??
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:11 PM EDT] <Laurna> Bou is a ShihTzue about 16 years ole. and Winnie is one of my older cavlaier spaniels
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:16 PM EDT] <derynifank> All big dogs think they are lap dogs
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's a holiday dreamed up by a seven-year-old boy in New Zealand who decided there should be a holiday celebrating wolves/dogs and the people who take care of them.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:29:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The inaugural celebration of the holiday is set for November 23. Celebrations included eating roast meat and a moon-shaped/decorated cake.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:30:16 PM EDT] <Bee> aand howling?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:30:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's a website at wolfenoot.com
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:30:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Howling is good too. :D
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:18 PM EDT] <KK> I've heard of it. Think it will take off?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> *include, not included
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:26 PM EDT] <Evie> I can just see Luke and Gigi's reaction if I decide to celebrate Wolfenoot by howling over roast meat and moon cake. LOL!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:38 PM EDT] <Bee> aanimal Planet has a sshow about veterans working with wolves. Titled "Wwwolves and Warriors" or ssomething like that.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:43 PM EDT] <Evie> Gigi will look at me as though I've lost my everloving mind!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:53 PM EDT] <bynw> Some need to pray to the sun at high noon
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:53 PM EDT] <bynw> Need to howl at the midwinter moon
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:53 PM EDT] <bynw> Reborn and baptized in a moment of grace
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:53 PM EDT] <bynw> We just need a break
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:31:53 PM EDT] <bynw> From the headlong race
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:32:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It looks like it. There is a Facebook group called Wolfenoot Central that was created by the mother of the boy who came up with the holiday, and it's been very active.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:32:13 PM EDT] <KK> I've seen that, Bee. Sort of goes along with Put Bulls & Parolees.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:32:16 PM EDT] <Duncan> That would just confirm what we all suspect, Evie.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:32:18 PM EDT] <Laurna> My dogs would start barking like I had lost my everloving mind too.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:32:34 PM EDT] <Bee> www.wolfenoot.com
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:33:11 PM EDT] <Evie> :-P Duncan
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:33:25 PM EDT] <bynw> howling at the moon made me think of a Rush song ... :)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:33:48 PM EDT] <Evie> C'mon, they don't sound that bad.... ;-)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:33:58 PM EDT] <Laurna> I just saw the funniest cartoon caption. A vampire and a victim. the victim says that moon has no light of it's own, it is reflected sunlight. the vampire looks at the moon and disintegrates.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:34:24 PM EDT] <bynw> don't make me /kill you Evie .... that's why i posted the lyrics it reminded me of ....
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:34:24 PM EDT] <Bee> LOL
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:34:26 PM EDT] <KK> Can someone explain to me about thie patreon prefix that's starting to show up in websire addreses?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:34:49 PM EDT] <KK> Good one, Laurna.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:35:27 PM EDT] <bynw> Patreon is a fund raising site where creators can get money for creating content at different levels they offer different perks (sometimes)
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:35:33 PM EDT] <Bee> Is there also a matreon prefix for webdam addresses?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:35:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Patreon is a website where people can support artists/writers/other makers of content/things; you can subscribe (usually a monthly amount, and higher amounts tend to get you more access to special whatevers).
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:01 PM EDT] <Evie> I don't know about it showing up in addresses, but IIRC, Patreon is a crowdfunding site for supporting (i.e. being patrons of) an artist or creator of something you want to support
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:02 PM EDT] <KK> Ah. THank you.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:08 PM EDT] <bynw> I back a game company, the one that makes Tiny D6 as a patroen
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:25 PM EDT] <jemler> i use patreon to donate to a podcast i subscribe to. $5/episode.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:38 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> well I am off folks. Time to start cleaning up all the dishes from the turkey. Have a good night all. Chapter 5 of Pepper and Lace is up
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I wanted to do it for a couple of people but the website forces you to pay on the first of a month, and I don't get my disability until the third.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:48 PM EDT] <jemler> nite md
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:49 PM EDT] <bynw> i've thought about adding it to my blog to see if i could generate revenue from it
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:36:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I saw, MerchantDeryni, and I intend to go read it after chat!
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:04 PM EDT] Quit MerchantDeryni (MerchantDeryn@OWIRCN-066e27f1.dsl.bell.ca) has left this server (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:14 PM EDT] <Evie> There is a guy on YouTube who makes some cool videos about castle construction, which he illustrates with 3D graphic models he has created, and he gets his funding for the educational series via Patreon.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:18 PM EDT] <Laurna> Goo nght MD
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:27 PM EDT] <Evie> Bye, MD
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:34 PM EDT] <bynw> MD is long gone
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:38 PM EDT] <Evie> Look forward to reading Ch 5
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:37:42 PM EDT] <derynifank> Nite MD
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:39:03 PM EDT] <Evie> MD is doing a fanfic story featuring merchants using Portals to establish trade routes in the 16th or 17th C., I think.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:39:33 PM EDT] <Laurna> I think it is Shakespearean times.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:39:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> Sounds cool. Where do you find it?
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:39:46 PM EDT] <Evie> On the forum
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:39:54 PM EDT] <Evie> Look in his section of the fanfic board
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:40:07 PM EDT] <derynifank> Thanks
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:40:51 PM EDT] <Evie> Shakespearean times would be late 16th/early 17th C.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:42:56 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yes that is what I am thinking the refrences of culture are too.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:43:08 PM EDT] <KK> OK, I'm going to head out as well. Everyone, have a great week, and see you next week at our usual time.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:43:16 PM EDT] <Bee> Wassn't trade getting started earler than that? columbus sailed in 1492.
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:43:24 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good night KK

[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:44:08 PM EDT] <Evie> But the major age of exploration didn't start until after Columbus' time
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:44:09 PM EDT] <Laurna> I read it as gems
[Sunday, October 7, 2018] [6:44:11 PM EDT] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC).
"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.)
