[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:10 PM EDT] Join KK has joined this channel.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (when did my little girl grow up so much)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:18 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Katherine
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:10:27 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:11:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> How are things?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:11:08 PM EDT] <KK> What's up this evening?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:11:40 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Very quiet. We were waiting for you.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:12:11 PM EDT] <KK> I've just been doing a final proofread of the manuscript for "The Green Tower," which is going to be included in the next Writers of the Future anthology. They asked me at Dragoncon, so that alone made it worthwhile.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:12:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Cool!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:12:26 PM EDT] <KK> It was in Deryni Tales.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:13:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:14:23 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Will Morgan ever discover the location of the Castle Coroth Portal(s)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:14:30 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, Bynw.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:14:45 PM EDT] <KK> Dunno. He might.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:15:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> I hold out hope that the young Morgans will give him some help.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:15:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> What he needs is KK's help.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:15:44 PM EDT] <KK> I'll try to oblige. ;-)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:15:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well, KK DID give him the kids....
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:16:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ;)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:16:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> And their mother...
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:19:46 PM EDT] <Derynifank> The peerfect match
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:20:08 PM EDT] * The_Bee wonders whom to sting to wake the chatroom up.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:20:25 PM EDT] * Shiral puts out strong coffee on the chatroom table
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:21:28 PM EDT] * The_Bee sets out cream and sugar.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:21:55 PM EDT] <Derynifank> We may need espresso to wake us up
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:22:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sorry, I'm a bit run-down, and I'm also at my parents' house doing laundry, so occasionally my attention wanders because I'm talking to someone within arm's reach (or thereabouts).
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:04 PM EDT] * Shiral snaps fingers and provides an Italian barista, ready to take everyone's ordres
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:12 PM EDT] <Shiral> ORDERS, I mean
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:16 PM EDT] <The_Bee> feeling a sickness coming on?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Is anyone planning to watch Ken Burns new documentary on PBS?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm recording it.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> It's not on yet. But I'll watch it tonight
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:23:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't think I'm sick, as in contagious, but I'm seeing my neurologist tomorrow because weird stuff is happening that's probably something they should see.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:24:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mom's going to record it. I never got around to watching the one on the national parks, which I REALLY wanted to see.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:24:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I hope there's more singing than talking about singing.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:25:07 PM EDT] <Derynifank> There is singing but I think it's more historical
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:25:19 PM EDT] <KK> Well, I'll give you a bit of a progress report from this end. You know that we got Mother's apartment cleared before last weekend. The new guy has moved in, and from all reports, is settling in well. Monday and Wednesday, my friend Martie and I worked on the cottage. On Wednesday, I took a huge bunch of recycle paper waste to the landfil;l, where they do paper and cardboard recycling. But it was 100 degrees out there. I shoulda worn a h
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:25:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> as long as they sing complete songs instead of just fragments.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:14 PM EDT] <Derynifank> worn a ?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> KK, your message cut off at "I should have worn a h"
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> hat?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:24 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> you cut off here: I shoulda worn a h
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:31 PM EDT] <Derynifank> hoodie?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm guessing "hat," too.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:41 PM EDT] <KK> a hat, and till next time.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:44 PM EDT] <The_Bee> a sun hat
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:26:47 PM EDT] <KK> will
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:27:05 PM EDT] <Shiral> Glad for the progress, KK, but I hope you took a refreshing shower and a cool drink after that.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:27:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And not too quickly, gently cool down when you get that hot or you'll get sick.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:27:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And here I am telling the native Floridian that. ;)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:27:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> That's why I hope the cool shower came first!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:18 PM EDT] <KK> Yep. And after loading up for the second run, I decided not to, just then. The stuff is sitting in the back of my car, and I hope to go tomorrow.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> Smart to pace yourself
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Good call, I think. If it's paper waste, it shouldn't make any sort of mess in your car for sitting a day or two.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> with cooler weather?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:52 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hope it will be cooler. Don't forget the hat
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:28:55 PM EDT] <KK> I did stop at my favorite diner for a hot dog and a chocolate milk shake. Yum!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:29:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> And the sunscreen lotion
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:29:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Very few things are made worse by the application of a good chocolate milkshake. :D
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:29:33 PM EDT] <KK> I wasn't in the dun long enough to risk sunburn. But it was sure long enough to be melting!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:29:37 PM EDT] <Shiral> Amazing how much we can accumulate in just a few years in the same place
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:29:46 PM EDT] <Derynifank> and most things arr made better
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:30:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Incidentally, if any of y'all have Steak 'N' Shake restaurants near you, the Special Dark milkshake is DELISH!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:30:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> DFK is getting ready for Talk LIke a Pirate Day. =o)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:30:38 PM EDT] <KK> She had moved a lot of that stuff from San Francisco. I told my friend that I didn't think Mother ever threw out any piece of paper other than used Kleenexes and T.P.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:30:45 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Arrr
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:30:54 PM EDT] <Shiral> Wow, that's a LOT of paper
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A chocolate milkshake made with Hershey's Special Dark chocolate and including little pieces of the candy.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:14 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> that is a lot of paper
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> DFK?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yikes, that is a LOT of paper.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:18 PM EDT] <KK> Yep. There were receipts going back to the 90's.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:24 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> probably a lot of history info on those papers too
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:26 PM EDT] <Shiral> Deryni Fan K
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ah, thanks
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:31:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> Wow, that's A BIG Recycling job
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:32:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, my mom finally convinced my stepdad to have their tax records from the 80's and 90's shredded.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:32:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I mean, yes, keep 7-10 years of back tax records, just to CYA, but beyond that, barring some special reason, SHRED THEM. :D
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:32:57 PM EDT] <KK> Mostly it was files, Bynw, of newspaper cuttings and magazine tear-outs that I doubt she ever looked at again, once they were filed. Talk about anal....
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:33:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:33:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Most of mine are n dead computers. :9
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:33:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> :(
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:33:26 PM EDT] <Shiral> That's what keeps me from clipping things.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:33:54 PM EDT] <Derynifank> You'd be surprised what historians can get from old financial ecords
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:34:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> records
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:34:37 PM EDT] <KK> But the financial stuff has to get shredded.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:34:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Account books can reveal more than accounts.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:35:13 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Yup. Historians will have to find other sources
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:35:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There may be a shredding service you can use, if it's really a lot of paper.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:35:56 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> some places do community shredding as well
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:36:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, and BTW, thank you so much for the box of goodies!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:36:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> That's a lot of Parrot Cage Lining
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:36:35 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> but it is so fun to shred paper though
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:36:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Be careful. The parrot might read the stuff and blab.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:37:13 PM EDT] <KK> You're welcome, DR. I figured you could use at least some of it.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:37:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Parrots have loud mouths and no disretion
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:37:46 PM EDT] <Derynifank> discretion
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:38:22 PM EDT] <KK> We do have two free shred-days per year--and I think the fall one may still be coming up--but commercial shredding costs on average $1 per pound. That can add up pptrtty fast.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:38:51 PM EDT] <Shiral> "Cats, I have an interesting assignment fo your..."
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:39:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://i.postimg.cc/XqNHJkR2/Carys-approves-of-the-gift-box-from-KK-28-Aug-2019-crop-sm.jpg
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:40:08 PM EDT] <KK> Tee-hee, DR!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:40:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, I can use almost all of it, and I can find appreciative homes for what I personally can't use.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:40:33 PM EDT] <KK> Excellent!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:40:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> Carys probably thought it was for her.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:07 PM EDT] <KK> Well, of course. It's a box, and it has fabric in it, and she's a cat.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:23 PM EDT] Join Jerusha (Mibbit@C06FE3.701A35.ED3923.9DA955) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:27 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Cats say they will shred for catnip treats
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:33 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:42 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi everyone
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:44 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:41:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That length of plaid wool went to a friend who has young children, and the petticoat may go to someone who also does Edwardian-era stuff. I haven't had a chance to show it to her and see if it'll work.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:42:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Melantha will shred without catnip.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:42:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> HI Jerusha
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:42:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys will shred paper for the sheer fun of it, but only on her terms. You'll probably have to provide snack-and-water breaks. :D
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:42:27 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Sorry to be late: too many dinner dishes
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:42:43 PM EDT] <The_Bee> biggathering?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:01 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nope, just the two of us. Go figure
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Did you cook something complex?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> how many courses?;)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ;)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> Small plate dinner with multiple courses?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or something that dirtied a lot of dishes? Some recipes are like that.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:43:44 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Just flank steak, baked potatoes and asparagus with cheese sauce
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:44:05 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I think the dished clone when I am not looking
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:44:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yum, any leftovers? :D
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:44:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> dishes, that is
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:44:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> lots!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:44:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Do the dogs help dirty the dishes?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:05 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Alas, not dogs anymore
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Oh?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:12 PM EDT] <Jerusha> no, that is
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:33 PM EDT] <Jerusha> They passes away last year. 16 and 17 years old
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:47 PM EDT] <Jerusha> rented fingers!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:45:57 PM EDT] <Jerusha> And I want my money back
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:46:05 PM EDT] <KK> That's good innings for dogs.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:46:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ;(
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:46:35 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep, especially since one was epileptic since the age of one
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:47:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Is epilepsy common in some breeds?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:47:38 PM EDT] <Jerusha> In some, yes, but not in whippets
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:47:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> She had a difficult birth, which may have been the reason
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:48:14 PM EDT] <Eris> <Forum Bot> @Blkdragon64 created a new thread New here... - http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?topic=2479.msg=23056 on Rumors board
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:48:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> That makes sense.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:48:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's the new member that just made that post.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:49:02 PM EDT] <Jerusha> New members are good. Welcome!

[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:49:51 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hello Black Dragon
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:50:27 PM EDT] <Eris> <Forum Bot> @DesertRose wrote a new post Re: New here... - http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?topic=2479.msg=23058 on Introductions board
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:50:30 PM EDT] <KK> If you guys want to post the old Deryni Archives magazine there, I have no objection.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:50:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> or a new one?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:51:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's more a matter, probably, of getting the old issues digitized and Julianne having time to see if she can recover the submissons from the computer that bit the dust.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:52:27 PM EDT] <KK> Sorry I can't help with the digitization. And sadly, the original files were in Word, and disappeared many computers ago. I suspect even the floppy disks are long gone--if they're even still readable.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:52:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I can re-submit mine, but it will have to be by snail-mail.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:52:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Scanning is tedious.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:53:15 PM EDT] <Shiral> It's a job
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:53:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I recently, through a local network of computer nerds, was able to borrow a device that allowed me to copy a bunch of data of 3.5" floppies (that I found while shuffling my belongings) to the computer via a USB port, so now I have all those files in my Google Drive.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:53:57 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I have the hard copies but yes, scanning would be a pain
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:54:50 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I don't have any scanning equipment.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:54:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So it can be done, reading the old floppies, and I considered buying the little thing, but I figured if I could borrow it from someone for a weekend, that'd be easier, and lo and behold, someone who lives about five miles from me had one that he didn't mind letting me borrow.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:55:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Good!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:55:11 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nice, DR
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:55:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Excellent
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:56:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The 3.5"-floppy-to-USB-port device isn't that expensive, ~US$15, but that was $15 that can go in the fuel tank or towards groceries or whatever.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:56:32 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:56:45 PM EDT] <KK> I'll have to look in my hoarded floppy disks and see what I've got. But5 1/4? Can anyone still read those?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:57:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't know about 5.25, but I can look if you'd like, KK.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:57:12 PM EDT] <The_Bee> If you like to cook, you can bake him a treat as a thank-you.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:58:10 PM EDT] <Derynifank> A baked thank you is always good
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:15 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good Evening Rhemuthcastle chat!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:25 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Laurna
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Apparently, there's a service to which you can mail your 5.25" floppies and they send you the files digitally (it sounds like email attachments for smaller files and download links for larger ones).
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:26 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi Laurna
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Laurna.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> Home from Taco Dinner
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi, Laurna
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yum, tacos.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:58 PM EDT] <Laurna> They were good.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [7:59:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Good tacos?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:00 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> hi Laurna
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Laurna
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We had taco salad here; a mix of seasoned beef and black beans on a bed of romaine, with cheese and salsa and other yummy things to put on top.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:42 PM EDT] <KK> Let me see first if I still have them. I don't even have a floppy drive in my present machine. Just a DVD player/burner--I think. It's all memory sticks, these days.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:51 PM EDT] <Derynifank> sounds yummy DR
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Is Eris channeling bynw, or is bynw channeling Eris?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:00:59 PM EDT] <Laurna> If you have something on a floppy disk, there are serveces that there that will redigitize it for you.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:01:18 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Many laptops/computers don't have cd drives anymore
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:01:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Or cars
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:01:49 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Mine does. I insisted on it so I can play CDs of DVDs.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:02:09 PM EDT] <The_Bee> OR not of
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:02:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I didn't know laptops ever drove cars.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:03:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:03:16 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> Bee, I'm chatting from the Discord server so I'm going there there Eris bridge
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:03:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> You're also twice on this server.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:04:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> IF we are talking about the Deryni Archives magazines, I would still love to find the last few additions. I think I have through number 11 but nothing later than that.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:06:11 PM EDT] <Laurna> And I would Love Love Love Love to see the Codex offered in Digital format.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:06:28 PM EDT] <The_Bee> We were wondering if we could recovever thdDa Zines. It seems Julianne's computer died.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:06:32 PM EDT] <KK> Lordy, that was a long time ago. Of course, I sort of cringe when I realize that the first book came out nearly 50 years ago. It will be July of next year, I think.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:06:45 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes, but I like leafing through hard copy. You never know where you might end up
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:07:10 PM EDT] <Jerusha> 50 years?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:07:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yeah! for nearly 50 years ago. I love it
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:07:50 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'd rather read hard copy, but digital is better than nothing.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:09:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I borrowed DR from a library where I worked at the time. I was surprised and delighted whrn I found Deryni Checkmate at a local bookstore.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:09:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> That's a pretty good curriculum vitae I'd say
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:09:49 PM EDT] <KK> I'll have to see if I can scare up the later copies. If so, I could send them to one of you for digitizing.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:09:51 PM EDT] <Shiral> I began life as a Deryni fan when my sister handed me her copy of Deryni Rising and said "get out of my room and go read this."
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:10:04 PM EDT] <The_Bee> LOL!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:10:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> A search feature when in the E-books makes looking up things so much less time consumming.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:10:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> She had no idea how momentous it would turn out to be.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:10:38 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Good sister!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:10:49 PM EDT] <Laurna> very good sister
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:11:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Does your sister still follow the series, Shiral?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:11:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> No, Bee
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:11:31 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> I've got a flatbed scanner so I can easily scan anything
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:12:14 PM EDT] <Laurna> I can not remember if it was sister who read DR first or if I did. But I do remember when we bought the soft cover book in the store during one of our mutual shoping trips.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:12:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> But she got you hooked. I gave DR to my grand-niece one Christmas, butit didn't catch fire for her.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:12:34 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I read the books in the 70"s, forgot them then rediscovered them a few years ago. Fell in love with them all over again
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:21 PM EDT] <Laurna> I still have that soft cover book.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> A new KK book will always be at the top of my Christmas wish-list.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:45 PM EDT] <Jerusha> My original paperbacks tend to want to fall apart at the seams
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> It was kind of the same way for me, DFK. I fell back in love in College and have been hooked ever since.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:51 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Absolutely
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:13:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I love seeing myself handed around. ;) :P
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:14:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> ILOL
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:14:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I know better. I'm just being silly.)
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:14:47 PM EDT] <Laurna> DR did you finally get your books, including DR, out of storage.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:14:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not yet.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:15:17 PM EDT] <Laurna> Getting to be that time, isn't it?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:15:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It should be no later than November, though, and it may be sooner because of other stuff going on re: the self-storage unit.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:15:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> Of course, that was helped in 1984 when, being home for Thanksgiving, I discovered The Bishop's Heir on the bookstore shelf.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:16:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> In college I was looking for anything to read that wasn't Biology, history or math. Deryni and Pern toped my lists
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:16:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have the "author's cut" of Deryni Rising on my Kindle (as well as the other two in that trilogy), and Kindle/e-book editions of whatever format is very handy for looking up something specific and having a convenient way to read when you're not at home and didn't bring a paper book with you.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:17:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm a "both is good" person in paper books vs. e-books debate.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:17:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I don
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> 't have a lot of room to store books, so ebooks are good
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:15 PM EDT] <KK> OK, folks. I'm expecting a call from Jasta, who is back in hospital with serious liver issues, hoping to get on a transplant list. If you check her on facebook, you can probably get up to date. And she could definitely use your prayers.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:31 PM EDT] <Laurna> I like the paper at home and the e-book at work. but I find that if it is an e-book only I will never think to open it up to start reading. I need the real book to give it a good starting point.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, does this mean good evening, then, KK?
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> Oh No
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:18:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> But my curl-up-and-read recliner is more comfy than my computer chair.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:04 PM EDT] <Shiral> Okay. Give Jasta our love, KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> Tell Jasta to be well, we are thinking of her.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> Thanks for stopping in.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thanks for coming to see us, and hopefully we'll see you next week, and yes, give Jasta our love.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:16 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Wokodgies for Jasta.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> and woodgies
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:30 PM EDT] <KK> Yep. I'm also working on the excerpts for my mother's Celebration of Life, which will be an elegant tea party onFriday afternoon.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:37 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes, healing thoughts for her.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'm sure she'd approve KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> love and good thoughts to Jasta elf
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:19:57 PM EDT] <Laurna> That is very nice thing
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:18 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:19 PM EDT] <Eris> <bynw> Jasta is definitely in my prayers. my fav redheaded priest.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Take care and see you next week.
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:25 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It sounds like a lovely celebration KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> G'night!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good Night KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:34 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nighters, KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hope all goes smoothly on the day, KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:36 PM EDT] <KK> Take care, all, and keep those prayers coming!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:42 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Nite KK
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:50 PM EDT] <KK> Nighters!
[Sunday, September 15, 2019] [8:20:55 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.)
