[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ferris revered the All-Father, which is one of the epithets of Odin/Wodan, however you want to transliterate it from runic to Latin alphabet.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:18 PM EDT] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:19 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:22 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:25 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi, KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:25 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:34 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:44 PM EDT] <The_Bee> In my heaaad-canon, Iceland's analog is caalled Njordholm.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:50 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:11:59 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:12:01 PM EDT] * TheDeryni waves to Katherine
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:12:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How has your week been, KK?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:12:30 PM EDT] <KK> DR, so glad you were nowhere near the incident in Jacksonville.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:12:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thank you.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:12:58 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Tralia makes sense as a German base. Hort as a noble title has a Germanic base
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I was at home when it happened, although I had gone out earlier in the day (had to get groceries and run another errand).
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:06 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Thanks folks.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Glad I did my errands when I did, though, because I have to think traffic was quite a snarl during and afterwards.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:38 PM EDT] <jemler> keep rtying merchantderyni.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:49 PM EDT] <Evie> Results of Alaric's head swap, KK: http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php/topic,844.msg20638.html#msg20638
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:13:50 PM EDT] Mode bynw gives channel operator privileges to KK.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I thought "Hort" was inspired by an episssode of Star Trek.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That was really sCary I have another friend who lives in Jax and I had to call to be sure he was ok Glad you're OK too
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:32 PM EDT] <Evie> And just because Tralia is a staunch ally of Gwynedd in Kelson's day doesn't mean it would always be throughout history.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My building is not far from the site of the shooting (same zip code, even), and the way I'd come home from the supermarket would pass by one of the cross streets.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:35 PM EDT] <Dennis> That leads to a random question: Is there a New World in the world of the Eleven KIngdoms?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:40 PM EDT] <bynw> hmmm Evie is playing dr frankenstein with Deryni littles
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> MerchantDeryni has written a New World. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:14:57 PM EDT] <judyward> Alaric looks pretty good, Evie
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:15:01 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Camberland! lol
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:15:04 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm Evie the Impaler, Bynw. I thought you knew? :-D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:15:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But in the timeline of the Eleven Kingdoms, I'm not sure they'd have traveled far enough to find out yet!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:15:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> across the Atalantic Oceaaan?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:15:57 PM EDT] <duck> didn't whatshisnme the mcrorie in the choose your own adventure head off over th e ocean blue?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:16:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> As far as the word "Tralia," it puts me in mind of the German region Westphalia/Westfalia.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:16:22 PM EDT] <Dennis> No. Even if you put the Eleven Kingdoms a couple hundred years ahead of the real Europe, you're still about 40-60 years short of Prince Henry the Navigator and more than 150 before Columbus.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:16:55 PM EDT] <The_Bee> What about Eric the Red or his sson Leif?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:17:09 PM EDT] <Dennis> Geordie Drummond?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:17:28 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I based my Camberland stories on the idea of a few ships, some desperate weather magic to give wind for an escape. they settle on the British VIrgin islands
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:17:58 PM EDT] <jemler> where can i find that series?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:07 PM EDT] <KK> New Alaric head is VERY handsome, Evie. I like it!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:16 PM EDT] <Evie> On the Forum's fanfic section under MerchantDeryni's name, Jemler
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:19 PM EDT] <Dennis> Depends how much contact the kingdoms have with Eistenfalla. Aside from Ferris the Swordmaker, there's just a bunch of battles with them.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:21 PM EDT] <Evie> Thank you, KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:41 PM EDT] <Evie> I like his bone structure.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:42 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Yep, I really like Akaric's new head too
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:18:58 PM EDT] <KK> Bone structure is great!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:19:30 PM EDT] <jemler> Evie! I'm telling Duncan you like Alaric's bones! :)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:19:31 PM EDT] <Derynifank> "Wickedly handsone"
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:20:28 PM EDT] <KK> Much more like what I'd always pictured for Alaric.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:20:42 PM EDT] <judyward> A really handsome Alaric. I like it.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:20:53 PM EDT] <The_Bee> link, please?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:21:30 PM EDT] <Dennis> How goes the writing, KK? Any news?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:21:58 PM EDT] <KK> He actually appears to have some personality now, not just generic pretty boy.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:22:44 PM EDT] <KK> I think it's the facial planes.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:22:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:23:16 PM EDT] <Evie> He seems to fit Cardiel's description better (looking like he could be an angel in a fresco, but dressing more like the devil, or some such.) LOL
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:23:41 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Way too positive personality to be a pretty boy
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:25:23 PM EDT] <KK> Dennis, no progress alas.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:25:33 PM EDT] <Evie> This head also didn't require the ridiculous amount of surgery the last one did to keep it on his neck, either. I stuck a rubber grape onto his neck joint to make a ball joint, and when it wasn't quite big enough, added some silicone putty on it to make it bigger, and that's all it took.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:25:39 PM EDT] <bynw> The_Bee, this is the link to Evie's post: http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php/topic,844.msg20638.html#msg20638 on Alaric's new head.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:25:44 PM EDT] <Evie> How is Little Bitty Mom?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:02 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Thaanks, Bynw
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A rubber grape?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Now I'm envisioning Luke and/or Gigi "helping" by smacking the grape around. :P
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:50 PM EDT] <KK> She seems to have bounced back pretty well from her mini-stroke, but her short-term memory continues to deteriorate.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :(
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:26:55 PM EDT] <Evie> Yeah. It makes a great ball joint if you need to adapt an action figure body for the larger head opening in a Ken head.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:27:12 PM EDT] <judyward> Sorry to hear that, KK.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:27:20 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm sorry to hear that, though glad she is recovering
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:27:55 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I hope the memories LBM keeps are the good ones.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:28:15 PM EDT] <KK> She still talks from time to time about "home" in San Francisco, even though I've explained in every way I know how that that home no longer exists, and she couldn't afford to live there now.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:28:34 PM EDT] <judyward> Probably her early memories are getting stronger. That's what happened to my Mom.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:28:41 PM EDT] <Evie> Our deacon's husband seems to have had something similar last night. We had several people out, so the other Eucharistic Minister and I had to improvise quite a bit. She had to double as crucifer and I ended up carrying the Gospels.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:28:59 PM EDT] <jemler> Why? What happened to San Fransisco?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:29:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LBM moved to Virginia quite a while ago, and the Bay Area is freaking ridiculously expensive in terms of cost of living.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:29:38 PM EDT] <Evie> While our poor priest hobbled around, since he's recovering from foot surgery and has a peg-leg sort of device that let's him walk, but I've been calling him Father Long John Silver. ;-)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:29:46 PM EDT] <KK> Also complains about there not being sdidewalks in our immediate neighborhood, which makes it impossible for her to walk to places she'd like to go to--even though she couldn't walk that far anyway, and all she has to do is ask her caregivers to take her wherever she'd like to go.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:09 PM EDT] <judyward> She's got her own reality now.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:28 PM EDT] <The_Bee> It's hard to give up your independence.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:35 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> http://fortune.com/2018/06/27/bay-area-six-figures-housing-hud/ 117000 is low income in Bay area.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:36 PM EDT] <jemler> i know.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> KK, if you'd like, I have some resources I found in my transcription days for family members/other loved ones of people suffering memory loss.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:38 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, very hard.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:30:44 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, it's getting more and more that way. Sad to watch her slide slowly downhill.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:31:02 PM EDT] <Evie> :-(
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:31:22 PM EDT] <judyward> By the time Mom passed, I knew there was almost nothing there of my Mom anymore.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:32:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Some of the resources are specific to Alzheimer disease/other forms of dementia, but some of them are fairly broadly applicable.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:32:35 PM EDT] <KK> I do have some resources very closeby, and have been oging to their seminars for over a year now. Last week, I visited the dementia support group, which meets once a month. Looks like it's going to be very useful.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:32:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, good.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:32:45 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> The first time you ask the question "Do you know who I am?" and they look at you and say "No". You die a little inside.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:33:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I can't imagine.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:33:08 PM EDT] <judyward> Very sad time of life.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:33:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It is very difficult
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:33:47 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> It's rough, dementia is a brutal illness on those that keep the memory alive. The person who is ill does not know they are unwell.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:33:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The only person in my family to suffer any permanent memory loss was my great-uncle, who played NCAA football in the leather-helmet days. It was weird enough when my grandmother had to have a bone marrow biopsy and they overdid it with the pain meds, so she thought I was one of her sisters for a few hours.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:34:31 PM EDT] <judyward> Ah, his playing days did his memory in.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:34:32 PM EDT] <KK> I know. And it isn't going to get any easier.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:34:37 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Be warned about the support groups. The jokes are savage.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:34:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> MerchantDeryni, some of them do realize that their brain isn't working right. Sometimes their "anger" is really frustration at the deterioration that they know they're experiencing but can't change.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:34:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My Mom was lucky. Thre was sssome fading, but she knew who we were.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:35:08 PM EDT] <judyward> My Dad's family all passed quickly, while Mom's lingered into senility.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:35:30 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> "The good side of alzhiemers is she can wrap her own christmas gifts and hide her own easter eggs." that was what the one lady told me.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:35:54 PM EDT] * TheDeryni is becoming depressed. :(
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:05 PM EDT] <judyward> Heavy topic.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee> It'sa depresssing ssubject, TD.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:24 PM EDT] <KK> Yeah, let's talk about something else.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:38 PM EDT] <jemler> we're KK's support group, now.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I get scared every time I forget things
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How are your fur-kids, KK?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Is Gus The Writing Assistant in attendance?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:36:59 PM EDT] <judyward> Me, too, DFK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:37:13 PM EDT] <judyward> Where's Carys, DR?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:37:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> On top of my printer, looking out the window at the retention ponds/creek where there are many ducks, geese, and miscellaneous other avians to keep her attention. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:00 PM EDT] <KK> Gusw is elsewhere right now, but slept with me last night and spent some time this AM in my lap. He's good. Bynw, how're you holding up?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:08 PM EDT] <judyward> A good view for a cat, DR.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> When I was moving into this apartment, I had plugged the power strip for my computer (and other desk stuff) into an outlet that transpires to be controlled by a light switch on the opposite wall, near the entrance to the kitchen.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:29 PM EDT] <Dennis> I can ask the 83 questions I have about the pre-interregnum Haldanes....
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:33 PM EDT] <Dennis> Not really. :)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:41 PM EDT] <duck> has one fur kid has absconded with morgan of the new head? the gwyneddian bad boys sure do have animal magnetism

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:51 PM EDT] <jemler> hi df64
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:38:58 PM EDT] <DF64> hi all
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:01 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi, DF64
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:02 PM EDT] <jemler> full house today.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So I moved the power strip to a different plug and plugged the printer into the light-switch-controlled outlet, because SOME CAT likes to turn the printer on with her fuzzy feet and make copies of nothing. ;)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:12 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL! New Alaric is in the craft room avoiding the Giant Kittehs
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:13 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, i'm hanging in there. i miss my loud kitty, she always liked to talk
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:17 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, DF64
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi DF64
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:23 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, that could wreak havoc with your sanity until you figured it out, DR.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:44 PM EDT] <Dennis> She Who Arises and Meows is wandering in and out, surveying her domain.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:47 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Are you sure she isn't producing pixels of a beautiful cat
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:39:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, we figured it out almost immediately, because my stepdad flipped the light switch and my entire computer (which was playing music via Pandora) turned off instantaneously.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which was when I decided to make a feature out of a bug and plug the printer into that outlet.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:21 PM EDT] <KK> How's her sister taking it, Bynw?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:23 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> Is the printer a scanner? lift the lid and let her take pics of her face
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:25 PM EDT] <judyward> Good idea.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:28 PM EDT] Quit TheDeryni (~TheDeryni@Flirt.Storyteller.Wiseass) has left this server (Ping timeout: 121 seconds).
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:40:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, no, Derynifank, because in order to make copies of her fuzzy butt, she'd have to lift the "lid" over the glass part that scans for scanning/copying.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:41:05 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So sorry about your loss bynw. I still miss my kitties who have gone before
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:41:10 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, i think every now and again she looks around for her. today she's been meowing more than normal for her ... maybe she's trying to call her sister
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:41:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which, given that Carys can be scary smart, she might figure out how to do.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:41:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Poor Kagi-kitty.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:41:59 PM EDT] <Dennis> Deepest condolences, bynw.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:42:23 PM EDT] <The_Bee> condolences, bynw
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:43:07 PM EDT] <DF64> me too
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:43:13 PM EDT] <bynw> thanks. if you are registered on the forums i have the following post. its not thing that requires a comment or anything just information: http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php/topic,2281.0.html and an attachment
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:43:35 PM EDT] <KK> After a decent interval, you need to consider another kitty companion for little Kagi.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:44:13 PM EDT] <bynw> we've talked about it.... it wont be right away of course
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:44:46 PM EDT] <bynw> and it wont be another bengal, it would be more of the common house cat variety

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:48:58 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Bye Judyward!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:49:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rehi TheDeryni
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:49:06 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Err
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:49:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And there are loads of rescue kitties out there.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:49:25 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Rehi
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:49:57 PM EDT] <KK> And especially grown rescue kitties.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:50:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:50:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys was a rescue, although we (her rescuers and I) thought she was younger than the vet calculated.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:50:49 PM EDT] <DF64> and we said goodbye to John McCain, Robin Leach and Neil Simon
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:00 PM EDT] <MerchantDeryni> I am off as well folks. Good chatting with you all.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We thought she was maybe 8-10 months old, but the vet said she was two years old. Now she's probably about five years old, and she seems very content to be a house cat. She enjoys watching birds and playing with toy mice, but I don't think she misses having to hunt in order to eat.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Come agaain, MD
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> G'night, MerchantDeryni. Don't be a stranger!

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (But be as strange as you like. ;) )

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:51:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Are you heading out, jemler?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:52:05 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, i sent you an email dont know if you've seen it yet.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:52:22 PM EDT] <jemler> not yet.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:52:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, cool. I just wasn't sure if the "night guys" was to those leaving or more general. :)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:53:00 PM EDT] <jemler> to those leaving.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:53:12 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, I saw it, Bynw, just before I came here. I'd check with Jim, to see if his protocols allow. I have no problem with it, but I don't know if it might set a pesky preedent.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:53:41 PM EDT] <Dennis> Missy says, "Meow."
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:53:44 PM EDT] <bynw> ok, i was wondering about that too :) if the mail server doesnt allow it ... let me know and I will just make a link for it
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:54:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My friends who sheltered Carys and me from Hurricane Irma adopted an eight-year-old rescue beagle late last fall, and he (beagle) has recently started actually playing with them, to the delight of all.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:54:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rescue critters are awesome.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:54:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Awww!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:55:00 PM EDT] <bynw> lots of rescue bengal kitties out there, most of them are out on the coasts
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:55:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although he must be close to nine years old by now. :D

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [7:57:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Speaking of circus animals, I'd love to go visit this place: http://cattyshack.org/ A friend of mine from Harry Potter fandom, once we figured out we lived near each other, sent me a photo of him and his wife bottle-feeding a tiger cub at the rescue.

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:00:47 PM EDT] <Dennis> I am going to head out soon, because I need to take out the trash, but I'd like to leave on my own terms, IRC.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:01:30 PM EDT] <bynw> its not always the server, it can very well be the internet
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:01:34 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, guys, remember that I won't be here next week; in Atlanta for Dragoncon.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:01:45 PM EDT] <Evie> And early chat is the week after?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:01:54 PM EDT] <Dennis> Have a wonderful time, KK.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:01:54 PM EDT] <KK> Yes.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:02:02 PM EDT] <The_Bee> sso early chat Sept 9?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:02:07 PM EDT] <bynw> enjoy Dragon*Con
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:02:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes, early chat the 9th, last I knew, unless KK says otherwise. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:02:36 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Have a great time at dragon con See you on the 9th
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:02:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> enjoy Dragoncon, KK
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:03:20 PM EDT] <KK> They've got me on some interesting panels this year, including one on Candles in the Night: Christians in Dark Fantasy. Should be fun. (Don't know who else will be on it yet.)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:03:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I just figured it might be the server since the people who got kicked off may not necessarily be using the same ISP. :)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:03:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ooh, cool!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:04:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I might have to pester some friends who'll be at Dragon*Con into going to that panel and telling me all about it! :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:04:24 PM EDT] <Evie> Oh, that sounds cool, KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:04:39 PM EDT] <jemler> have fun, KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:16 PM EDT] <Dennis> That's a panel I'd like to see.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How did Dragoncon gets its name? Inspired by Dungeons & Dragons?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:22 PM EDT] <Evie> Me too!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:28 PM EDT] <KK> Just hope it isn't too hot, though we'll be largely indoors. Gone are the days I trek through the heat to go to the dealers' area, like the time Evie and I went and we lost Duncan't head.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:34 PM EDT] <bynw> DesertRose, routing ... only a traceroute will expose issues
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:35 PM EDT] <Evie> Probably, Bee. I think it started off as a gaming con.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:05:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mother asked me how I came to know so many Christian clergy (thinking of revanne, Demercia, and JastaElf, because my other clergy friend is a childhood friend whom Mom knows), and I had to explain Deryni fandom to her. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:06:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Oh no, headless Duncwn?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:06:10 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Duncan
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:06:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> bynw: Ah, gotcha (re: internet connectivity)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:06:31 PM EDT] <KK> It's essentially a media-con, these days, thich covers a lot of ground.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:06:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Duncan lost his head a couple of times. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:09 PM EDT] <bynw> lots of Christians in fandom ... there is the Christian gamers guild and saving the game and a couple of others that i know about
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:12 PM EDT] <DF64> poor duncan
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, but Mom didn't know that. :)
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Is any Dragonccon online?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:45 PM EDT] <Dennis> Anyway, gonna head out. Have a great couple weeks, everyone! Have fun at Dragoncon, KK!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's fairly internet-savvy for a Baby Boomer, but she doesn't really get deep into fandom.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:07:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> G'night, Dennis!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:08:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> bye Dennis. Scritches to kitty
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:08:25 PM EDT] <KK> JastaElf was telling me about something called Theo con, where the Th is a theta. I think it will be in the B'more area around the end of September. Don't know if I can make it, though.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:08:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh cool!

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Evie said that. I know next to nothing about Dragon*Con in terms of how they do things. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Never been.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:22 PM EDT] <KK> Good question. I know tht I watch the parade and the costume contest on the in-house TV. Avoids the heat and the crowds.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:26 PM EDT] <bynw> i've only been 2 times
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:36 PM EDT] <The_Bee> thanks, EVie. I stand corrected
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:10:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Just wanted credit to go where it was due. :D

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:12:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my friends who goes to D*Con (he's the husband of another school friend) has a pickup truck that he has had painted (or maybe it's one of those wrap things) to look like the old pattern of the carpet in the Marriott.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:12:55 PM EDT] <Evie> Cool!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:12:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The truck is in the parade, often with an inflatable dragon in the truck bed.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:13:43 PM EDT] <Evie> The upstairs carpets in the Marriott (I think that was the right hotel) had a circular pattern, and I once set up four mini-Deryni in a ritual pattern and took pics of them in the "Ward Circle"
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:14:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:14:27 PM EDT] <KK> I remember that! And I think it <was> the Marriott.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:14:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> This was the weird mosaic pattern, and I think they took that carpet up a few years ago.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:14:45 PM EDT] <jemler> brb. dinner.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:14:58 PM EDT] <Evie> I think it was Duncan, Alaric, Richenda and Helena, but I don't remember for sure anymore

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:16:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:16:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Love that truck
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:17:08 PM EDT] <KK> Very clever.

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:18:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I like bynw's explanation.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:18:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, it IS Dragon*Con. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:18:43 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Me too
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:19:09 PM EDT] <bynw> and there is a Dragon in the back of the truck ... easy explanation not some mumbo jumbo science
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:19:10 PM EDT] <jemler> he used Falcon's Essence and flew over the truck.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:19:16 PM EDT] <Evie> Cool skin!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:19:37 PM EDT] <bynw> i bet that is a wrap rather than a paint job though
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:19:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That guy's wife is the same friend who had the same wristwatch I had, at least two, maybe three watches in a row, without consulting with one another.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:20:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So maybe magic/psychic phenomena isn't so far off the truth. :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:20:41 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Is that a face in the middle?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:20:58 PM EDT] <jemler> is she jealous of your fashion sense?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:21:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No. More like we have similar aesthetic tastes. :D

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:29:32 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We had spare ribs. Does that count as bacon?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:29:36 PM EDT] <Evie> I went to a Bacon Bash one year with a Jewish feastcrat, though I have to assume she wasn't a stickler for dietary laws. :-D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:29:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Guess not.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:30:03 PM EDT] <bynw> probably not
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:30:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or she was ethnic-Jewish but not religiously-observant-Jewish.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:31:10 PM EDT] <KK> That sounds reasonable to me.

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:31:52 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Went looking for a map, saw nothing that won me over, and fell into a reddit hole.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:32:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of our local Pelicans is ethnic-Jewish and not entirely observant, I don't think, but she did say recently that she's bored with the general obsession with Christmas.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:32:03 PM EDT] <Evie> But nearly everything had bacon in it, including the desserts
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:32:18 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Supposedly, there was gonna be a map in the thread...
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:32:52 PM EDT] <bynw> but bacon goes with everything and makes everything better
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:32:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We were grousing on Wednesday at Crafts and Drafts about Christmas stuff being in some stores already.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:33:01 PM EDT] * DesertRose rolls her eyes.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:33:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> "Pelicans"?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:33:19 PM EDT] <KK> Not here yet, thank God!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:33:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The only reason anyone should be doing anything Christmas-y right now is if they're making gifts or starting to practice for a musical production.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:33:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's an SCA order of peerage, the equivalent of a knighthood but for service rather than fighting.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:34:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Laurel is the equivalent for artistic achievements.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:34:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Not like my mom, then. When she was young she had summer job at a place where the staff were called pelicans.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:35:02 PM EDT] <KK> Symbol of the pelican in her piety, which means plucking flesh from her breast to feed her young, which is essentially what Pelican candidates do for the SCA, self-sacrificing for the good of the kingdom.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:36:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> definitely not The Pelican Brief
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:36:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, KK, we recently got a new College of Scribes handbook in Trimaris, and near the very end of the handbook there is a joke award: the Argent Straitjacket, for those with "helium hand" who need to sit down! :D
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:37:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Cracked me up to read that, because I know several people who "need" that award!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:37:14 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Saw Halloween candy taking a wall in a shop two weeks ago.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:37:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> BRB going down to campfire
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:38:12 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Only hope is that eventually people push holidays so far around the horn, they'll be back in sync.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:38:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> "A wwonderful bird is the pelicaan/ His beak can hold more than his belicaan./He can hold in his beak/ enough food for a week/ I sure wish I knew how the helican."
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:38:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, Bee

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:38:54 PM EDT] <KK> Campfire? Where is Jerusha logging in from?!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> For some reason, my brain is pinging that that's Shel Silverstein, the pelican poem?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Possibly the lake house?
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> it could be.
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:33 PM EDT] * IIsi50MHz checks sonar
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:37 PM EDT] <KK> Bee, I never saw the rest of that poem! Cool!
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:39:43 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> No blips, sir.

[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:40:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although "belicaan" makes me think of the Navajo word "beligaana," (which you'll see transliterated other ways) which means "white person."
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:41:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Repeated letters are care of rented fingers
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:41:48 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> So... His beak holds more than his white person? o-:
[Sunday, August 26, 2018] [8:42:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> LOL!

"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.)
