[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:18:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It must have been the chocolate discussion, y'all. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:18:51 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:18:54 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Hello KK!

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:13 PM EDT] <The_Bee> hi KK
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We've been talking about chocolates.

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:27 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Deep fried mars bar is good. I have had that a couple of times.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I said dark, yes. Including nomming a few chocolate chips when I bake with them.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:32 PM EDT] <jerusha> Ask Evie about her dark chocolate with chili
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:34 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> mars bar in batter.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:38 PM EDT] <judyward> ihOhk ratsky'ao. Tha'ts h ow sleepy I am. I thinik i better go fix dinner while I'm still sort of awake.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:41 PM EDT] <KK> For my taste, milk chocolate isn't worth the calories.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:45 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, KK!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:46 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes. Dark chocolate with vanilla, cocoa nibs, orange oil, and chili powder.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:19:50 PM EDT] <derynifank> Chocolates of all kinds, including some peculiar ones
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:08 PM EDT] <KK> Mars bars deep fried?! Blech!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Now I'm going to have to raid the stash of Special Dark Hershey's Kisses in my freezer
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:23 PM EDT] <bynw> Evie, derynifank, jerusha, LaurnaAFK ... and revanne who isn't here ... you have a message that you can look at later or now or whenever
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Chocolate fondue is for ddddipping fruit.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:33 PM EDT] <derynifank> Nite Judyward
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:43 PM EDT] <judyward> Night all
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Night, judyward
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:47 PM EDT] <KK> Chocolate fondue is yummy! Haven't had in years, though.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> bye JuddyWard
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:56 PM EDT] <jemler> nite judy
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:57 PM EDT] <jerusha> Nighters, JudyWard
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:20:58 PM EDT] Quit judyward (judyward@OWIRCN-cdcc182c.res.rr.com) has left this server (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:21:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or you can dip cake in chocolate fondue, too. Easier to use a fairly dense cake, like pound cake.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:21:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A lighter cake might fall apart on you. (And then, oh noes, you'd have to go into the fondue with a spoon after those cake crumbs.) ;)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:21:42 PM EDT] <jerusha> Just pass me the tub of chocolate frosting, and I'll be fine
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:21:53 PM EDT] <jemler> i hanen't had fondue in years.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:21:56 PM EDT] <derynifank> Sounds good
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:22:08 PM EDT] <bynw> must be a girl thing with the dark chocolate vs milk chocolate
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:22:22 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Sadly folks I have to drive to work to push a reset button. millions of dollars in technology and someone human has to push the reset switch. Hopefully I cna log in from work and keep chatting.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:22:28 PM EDT] <Evie> Nope, my DH prefers dark chocolate also.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:22:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, catch you later, MerchantDeryni.

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:23:03 PM EDT] <jerusha> Hope all goes well, MD
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:23:03 PM EDT] <Evie> Well, I won't argue that, Bynw. ;-)

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:24:00 PM EDT] <jerusha> If one door opens and another closes, be careful; your house is haunted
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:24:34 PM EDT] <bynw> or you have cats that can open and shut doors
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:24:37 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:24:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> speaking of haunts, Happy Halloween everyone

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:10 PM EDT] <Evie> Happy Candy Gluttony
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> BEEEEWAAARRE! of ghosts!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:23 PM EDT] <derynifank> What is that?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's 1 November, the candy gluttony. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> What's what, derynifank?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:38 PM EDT] <jemler> Wyo ya gonna call?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:25:45 PM EDT] <jerusha> I thought 1 Nov was "my tummy hurts"

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:13 PM EDT] <bynw> yes beware of Ghosts (of the Past)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Samhain? Irish holliday, became Halloween
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's the cross quarter between the fall equinox and the winter solstice, often celebrated on 31 October, but it doesn't necessarily fall there every year.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:24 PM EDT] <Evie> All Saints Day, Jerusha. And not because of needing to call upon the saints for a tummyache. ;-)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> This year, it's actually 7 November.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:41 PM EDT] <jemler> Who ya gonna call?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:50 PM EDT] <jemler> Ghostbusters!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The actual midpoint between the equinox and the solsiice, that is.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:26:55 PM EDT] <derynifank> ghostbusters
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:27:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, 1 November is when all the candy goes on sale, hence the candy gluttony. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:27:32 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Legend says that people born on Samhain can see and hear ghosts. on that day
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Just like 15 February is cheap chocolate day. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:21 PM EDT] <derynifank> so true
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:30 PM EDT] <bynw> and other candy goes on sale just after Easter
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:38 PM EDT] <bynw> 3 candy days a year
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:28:43 PM EDT] <bynw> for cheap candy
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:00 PM EDT] <bynw> $5 bags are now $1 or less!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:12 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Halloween replaced Samhain when the Christians took over.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:18 PM EDT] <bynw> buy it. freeze it. use it next year
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:33 PM EDT] <jerusha> Or just eat it all now.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:29:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Buy it, freeze it, nom on it throughout the year or however long it lasts. :P
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:30:00 PM EDT] <bynw> that works too jerusha
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:30:11 PM EDT] <bynw> a month or 2
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:30:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Sweets do not last long in my place.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:31:19 PM EDT] <jerusha> So KK, how has your week been?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:31:35 PM EDT] <Evie> I loathe Delores Umbridge. Just saying. Completely apropos of nothing but the movie playing in the room with me. :-D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:31:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's meant to be loathsome.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:31:50 PM EDT] <KK> I'm not that big on candy, though Scott is. Fortunately, he likes types that aren't my favorites.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:31:59 PM EDT] <KK> brb, dags making suspicious sounds.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:32:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, Katie bar the door if there are Snickers bars around, because I LOVE those things.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:32:13 PM EDT] <jerusha> Delores Umbridge?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:32:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, jerusha
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:32:29 PM EDT] <jerusha> Ah

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:34:04 PM EDT] <bynw> i didnt win those either and the power ball was split between 2 tickets one in iowa and one in ny
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:35:11 PM EDT] <derynifank> I did hear that in order to win you had to buy a ticket. Since I s
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:35:12 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I stick to Publisshers Clearing House. That's free to enter, if you can reesist the merchandise.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:35:14 PM EDT] <KK> I'm back. Dogs wouldn't go out the back, so I made sure it was locked.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:35:43 PM EDT] <derynifank> did n't can'tc
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:35:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> locked them in or oout?

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:38:37 PM EDT] <derynifank> Oh no!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:38:56 PM EDT] <jerusha> There might be a subliminal message, there
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:38:57 PM EDT] <derynifank> Bet the ghoulies got it
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:39:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I get online by calling up the task bar.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:41:09 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, npes! Hopefully, it isn't trashing everything in your computer!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:42:03 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Not everything. but nothing happens when I click the Windows icon
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:43:41 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I can still do most of what I want, though.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:43:53 PM EDT] <derynifank> Weird. Any ideas bynw

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:12 PM EDT] <jerusha> Hi Judy
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:21 PM EDT] <judyw> Hi, all. Moving around woke me back up.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:24 PM EDT] <derynifank> hi judy
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I could probably use my laptop and take my PC to a guy I know who ffixes computers as a hobby.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:30 PM EDT] <jerusha> Awake is good
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:45:58 PM EDT] <judyw> Much better than asleep at 6:30 and then awake at 3 AM
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:46:16 PM EDT] <jemler> hi judyw
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:46:26 PM EDT] <judyw> Hi Jemler
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:46:36 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Did you have a good dream, Judy?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:46:51 PM EDT] <judyw> I don't know. I just remember waking up.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:47:02 PM EDT] <KK> My phone does something similar to that, from time to time. The task bar across the bottom disappears, so you can't get at the back-up button. You have to swipe up, and it temporarily appears. But to get it to stay, there's a little black dot at the far left of the bar that you have to tap twice, and that makes it stay. I(n theory. I think you have to be holding your mouth right when you tap the black dot, because sometimes it works and
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:47:08 PM EDT] <judyw> I think I was only asleep a couple of minutes.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:48:10 PM EDT] <judyw> Wow, KK! That's inconvenient!!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:50:00 PM EDT] <KK> Yeah. It's a Samsung S8, and I really like it a lot, other than that weird quirk. Fortunately, when it started doing that, we were about to head off to Dragoncon, and I know I'd have lots of nerdy friends there to help me whip it back into shape--which they did.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:50:36 PM EDT] <Evie> D*Con is like Nerd Central, so yeah. :-D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:50:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:51:12 PM EDT] <KK> Which is a good thing!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:51:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:52:06 PM EDT] <judyw> DWTS Juniors is on at 7, so will be popping back out in a few.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:53:39 PM EDT] <judyw> Having geek friends is always good.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:55:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> DWTS?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:55:55 PM EDT] <bynw> dancing with the stars
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:56:14 PM EDT] <KK> Indeed. We just got these phones at the end of June, so we're still taming them. Even took them to the AT&T store for help, even though we're no longer with them, because they sell thata phone.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:56:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ah, ok.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:56:39 PM EDT] <derynifank> I have one but everytime I ask a question she tells me to google it. I tell her I do but half the time I don't understand what they told me
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:57:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I can finally make calls on my new phone, but I still can't figure out how to answer it.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:57:03 PM EDT] <KK> brb
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:57:16 PM EDT] <derynifank> That's unhandy
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:57:36 PM EDT] <Evie> There should be a green phone handset icon when a call comes in, at least on most phones that I've seen.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:57:47 PM EDT] <jerusha> I must go and tame the laundry monster. It is devouring socks, and I must see if any of the survivors match
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [7:58:08 PM EDT] <jerusha> Nighters, everyone!

[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:00:08 PM EDT] <judyw> Night all! Love you all, be safe!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:00:26 PM EDT] <derynifank> You too
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:00:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Evie, my phone does have the green icon, but nothing happens when I tap it.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:01:00 PM EDT] <Evie> On my phone I have to slide it
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:01:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> yes time change
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:01:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Thanks, I'll try that nest time
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:01:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> Wish they would leave the time alone
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:01:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> or lay an egg
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:02:17 PM EDT] <Evie> 0 <-- Egg
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:02:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> There was talk a wwwhile back about Massachusetts going to Atlantic Time
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:03:21 PM EDT] <jemler> convenient. they're already on thr atlantic xoast.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:04:09 PM EDT] <bynw> atlantic time is like where nova scotia is located ... mass is a bit to the west from there
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:04:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> It wwoould mess us the TV schedule, though.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:04:50 PM EDT] <KK> Earlier. But note that I won't be here. I'll be in the middle of the dreaded prep for a colonoscopy. Just routine, but it's important to keep up with these. The procedure itself is a doddle, but the prep is a bitch. I'd hoped, when I did the last one, 10 years ago, that the prep would have improved in the intervening decade, but alas, no. Still the same foul stuff you have to drink the night before.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Florida state legislature passed a law that we'd stay on DST, but the catch is, states can opt OUT of DST without the federal government's say-so, but in order to stay on it year-round, US Congress has to approve. So I guess we go back to EST next Sunday.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:19 PM EDT] <jemler> i had that stuff you have to drink.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:25 PM EDT] <Evie> Yeah. My last one had better foul stuff, but it still has the same end result. No pun intended. :-D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Colonoscopy prep is NOT fun.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:32 PM EDT] <The_Bee> OUCH! The prep is worse than the exaam.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:05:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> By far, in my experience.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm told I ddon't need them now that I'm 75.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> KK, would you like to do early chat on the 11th, then?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:18 PM EDT] <Evie> Do you want to wait until the following week to do early chat, then, so you can be here for it?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:23 PM EDT] <KK> Bee, to answer your phone, you probably have to swipe right, across the little red and green circles toward the bottom of the screen.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:36 PM EDT] <Evie> Since the main reason for early chat is for our UK friends to be able to see you?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:43 PM EDT] <KK> OK, we can do early chat on the 11th.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, cool. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Thanks, KK. And delay early chat?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:06:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Why would you not need colonoscopies after 75?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:07:49 PM EDT] <The_Bee> That;s wwhat my doctor said. Apparently if cancer hasn't shown up by then, it probably wwon't
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:07:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ah.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:07:57 PM EDT] <Evie> Because possible risks from the colonoscopy apparently increase in older age, and the colon cancer develops slowly enough that by the time it's full blown cancer, you have probably reached an age where you'd be likely to die of something anyway.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I see.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> same with mammograms.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:18 PM EDT] <derynifank> Because even if you had a colon cancer ghey grow so slow that you would probably die of something else before it got you. At lesst thay's what my doc said
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:32 PM EDT] <KK> Exactly, Evie. And I think the prep might do you in once you're in your 80's anyway.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:53 PM EDT] <Evie> There is a greater risk of perforation from the procedure when you get older
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:08:57 PM EDT] <derynifank> True
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:09:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It sucks badly enough in one's forties. :)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:09:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (the prep, that is)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:10:18 PM EDT] <derynifank> If low risk, can do colorgard which has no prep.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:10:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Guard those ccolors!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:10:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm probably at least moderate risk, since my paternal grandmother died of colon cancer.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:11:05 PM EDT] <Evie> Me too
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:11:19 PM EDT] <derynifank> actually I think it's cologard
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:11:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And young, too. She was 68.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My younger sister had breast cancer a few years ago. you're right. DFK
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:13 PM EDT] <KK> I think one could continue to do that after 75, because there's no stress. I, on the other hand, continue mammograms, because my grandmother died from breast cancer. Just had my yearly mammo last week; all clear.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :(
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mammograms aren't as bad as they used to be, apparently.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:39 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My dodtor said no need.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:52 PM EDT] <derynifank> I don't know, they still masj
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:53 PM EDT] <KK> My tech this time was really good. I didn't feel totally squeezed to death.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The same imaging center has done all of mine, and it's definitely not comfortable but not actually painful either.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:12:54 PM EDT] <derynifank> h it
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:06 PM EDT] <derynifank> mash it
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:06 PM EDT] <The_Bee> a tight squeeze, but no great pain
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:16 PM EDT] Join MerchantDeryni (MerchantDeryn@59D9A3.198F05.83880B.B3F3FD) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi MerchantDeryni
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> WB MD!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:37 PM EDT] <Evie> hi MD
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:37 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Greetings from my soggy workplace.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:40 PM EDT] <The_Bee> all well at work?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> WB MD. Did you get them reset?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:42 PM EDT] <KK> WB, MD. I take it you pushed the button!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Soggy?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:46 PM EDT] <Evie> Soggy?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:13:53 PM EDT] <KK> Raining there?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:14:05 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I am glad to report the engine is back on line and sending electricty to the grid. Soggy because it has rained here all weekend
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:14:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ah, okay. At least (hopefully) your workplace isn't flooded.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:14:33 PM EDT] <KK> Ooooh, do you work for a power comcpany?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:14:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> FYI, MD: early chat November 11 because KK can't be here on Nov. 4.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:14:56 PM EDT] <derynifank> Good job, MD. Isn't it nice to be needed in the age of robots?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:15:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'll put it on the forum, too, after I post today's log.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:15:11 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> well there is a 3 inch deep puddle in front of the steps to the office. We have to pump it out to the street. We are not quite done the drainage plan for the site.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:15:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (the delayed date of November early chat)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:15:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yuk
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:15:24 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Nov 11 early chat, perfect
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:11 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I work at an anaerobic digester KK. I help turn waste organics into electricity and the digested material is sent back to farmer fields to enrich the soil for next years crop
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> What kind of merchandise does a merchant Deryni sell?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:25 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Pepper and Lace
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:40 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I just finished my story of that name in the fanfic section.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:48 PM EDT] <derynifank> That sounds really cool
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:18:56 PM EDT] <Evie> He just finished a really cool story about Deryni trade routes using Transfer Portals
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:19:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> waste into energy? good idea, hope it spreads
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I saw a thing online earlier today about a way to build solar power cells into colored glass for building exterior windows, so that a sufficiently large building could generate its own electricity via the windows.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:40 PM EDT] <derynifank> Neat idae!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:42 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Is there a way to post a picture onto the chat? I could show folks where I am typing from.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:46 PM EDT] <derynifank> Idea
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:55 PM EDT] <KK> Cool, MD. A good step in the right direction for managing and reducing waste.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:20:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> renewable, non-polluting energy is the way to go.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:21:19 PM EDT] <Evie> You can post links to a picture if it's online
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:21:43 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> https://www.wn3.ca/2018/10/06/bio-blues/
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:22:35 PM EDT] <Evie> Cool
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:22:52 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> This is us. The report is not favourable. This place is a political football. So any issues with the site are painted with a big X on our backs. But the picture is coool
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:23:00 PM EDT] <The_Bee> "Ministry." Are you Canadian?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:23:19 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Yes, in Ontario.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:23:49 PM EDT] <Evie> Near Jerusha, then. Are you getting snow in your area?
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:23:55 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> The big round tanks are the digesters. The emptyish bunkers on the right are filling now as we put the organic waste into storage for the winter usage.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:23:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My sister lives in Ontario. Caledon.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:24:15 PM EDT] <derynifank> Such a great idea. Hope you can iron out the bugs. Politics really ruin everything!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:24:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The company that's doing the solar cells is called Oxford Photovoltaics; they're out of Oxford, UK, but they also have a German office.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:24:52 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Caledon is about an hour from us.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:25:02 PM EDT] <Evie> Watching Harry Potter in the background, so I wondered for a moment where your Ministry was in relation to the Ministry of Magic. ;-)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:25:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Politics: "poly" means "many" and "ticks" means "bloodsucking pains in the backside." :P
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:25:26 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> We had snow last night, it melted on contact with the ground. A few more weeks. They are getting snow further north
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:25:39 PM EDT] <derynifank> So true, DR
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:26:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> First heard that from one of my SCA friends, who was not quite as polite. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:26:46 PM EDT] <KK> I like that defiition, DR.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:26:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's a good one. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:27:31 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> sadly accurate. I like the photovoltaic cell idea as well. That is neat.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:28:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It is. I love the idea of skyscrapers or even just big office buildings being able to power themselves (provided a hurricane hasn't come through recently) and possibly even to generate more power than the building needs.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:28:12 PM EDT] <derynifank> That is super neat. Just think of all the tall buildings with all that glass
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:28:20 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> As for the rain, right now there is a puddle from the road to the office, about 100 feet or so. So we will be pumping out for hours tomorrow. It's not a deep puddle, just massive.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:28:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Sadly, any person who gets elected to political office becomes a politician.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:28:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I wonder if Oxford has thought about wind damage to window glass.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:29:01 PM EDT] <derynifank> The ultimate oxymoron, honest politician
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:29:26 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I like Heinleins definition of an honest politician. One that stays bought.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:29:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I mean, hurricanes are a pretty localized issue, but tropical cyclones aren't the only weather phenomenon to generate enough wind to break windows.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:29:45 PM EDT] <derynifank> They start out with good intentions but the system gets them
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:30:32 PM EDT] <The_Bee> If we want honest government, we need to elect honest people.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:30:40 PM EDT] <bynw> no the ultimate oxymoron is Microsoft Works
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:30:54 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hahaha
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:30:55 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Military Intelligence!
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:31:04 PM EDT] <KK> Yeah, by the time they've lived long enough to know enough to be useful, they've lost their youthful naivite and have been sucked into the system.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:31:09 PM EDT] <bynw> microsoft works beats them all
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:31:16 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> true
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:31:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Baste: (verb) 1: to tack with long, loose stitches in preparation for sewing. 2. the step you skip and curse yourself for later, as you pull out the seam ripper.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:32:13 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Bill Gates is funding an interesting technology. There is a company in British columbia that can turn CO2 and hydrogen into gasoline. The plan is to suck the CO2 out of the air to make carbon neutral fuel.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:32:13 PM EDT] <derynifank> Done that more than once
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:32:26 PM EDT] <KK> Why, DR, you must be working on a costume. :-)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:33:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, just saw that post, laughed, and thought others here would also find it amusing. :D
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:33:33 PM EDT] <Evie> Baste: 3. Brushing marinade or meat juices on roasting meat. Presumably one isn't doing this with one's sewing project, though. ;-)
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:34:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hopefully not. That'd be a messy sewing project.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:34:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Unless what you'd sewn was turkey or chicken skin back together over the meat you're basting. :P
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:35:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> In which case the seam ripper doesn't apply.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:35:43 PM EDT] <derynifank> Getting late (for me) so going to sign out for tonight. Have a good week everyone.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:35:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, derynifank.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:35:55 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Well folks. It has been awesome chatting with you all, but I get to reverse course and drive home again in the rain. Have a good night.
[Sunday, October 28, 2018] [8:35:56 PM EDT] <bynw> night dfk

"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.)
