[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:05:59 PM EDT] <web97> Hi, guys!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hello!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Is that KK?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello Is that KK?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:15 PM EDT] Nick web97 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Did anyone have an electric hot dog cooker in the 1970s? Stick hot dogs between prongs, and then plugged straight into main power. Sort of like that.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Laurna is my echo
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:23 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Are you Home already?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:36 PM EDT] <The_Bee> This has been a very longday. We officially installed Stephanie May as our new minister. I spent the time between church service and installation doing grocery shopping > I left hom just after 10 am and got home at nearly 6:30.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:06:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:07:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @Bee That really is a LONGGG day
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:08:06 PM EDT] <KK> No electric hot dog maker, but I had a Chicago hot dog yesterday in the Chicago airport. They're supposed to be famous. It was a goo dog.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:08:32 PM EDT] <KK> Good, too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:08:53 PM EDT] <The_Bee> goo dog? not good dog?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:04 PM EDT] <KK> Bee, is your trike cooperating now?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> you must have left right after the awards ceremony. I saw the fottage, KK. You looked wonderful. Loved the evening gown.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:23 PM EDT] <bynw> hi HM
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:27 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hi, everyone!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> hello HM
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:54 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hope all had a good week.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> you must have left right after the awards ceremony. I saw the footage, KK. You looked wonderful. Loved the evening gown.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:09:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi, Bee, KK, HoundMistress, Laurna, and whoever else has shown up.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:10:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm using the non-electric one. The new battery didn't work, and I missed the deadline for returning it. I plan to as about things that can adjust it.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:10:36 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Oh, there was footage? Where is it? Did you have a good time KK?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:09 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, cool! I hadn't realized it could be viewed live via the website. And thanks re my gown. It was actually separates that I've had for ages and love.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> NICE. Looked like one dress. I loved it.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:40 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Does anyone have the website?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:41 PM EDT] <KK> Writers of the Future website.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:52 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Thanks!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It might be linked on the forum.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:11:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Where is the footage?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:21 PM EDT] <KK> On the website.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hello
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Jerusha!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> https://www.writersofthefuture.com/the-awards-event/ KK gives the 2nd place award at the 2:01 hour mark.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:39 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:44 PM EDT] <KK> Just google Writers of the Future.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:12:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Whatever bloomed in the last few days needs to go all the way away.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Alergies?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:18 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Great! Found it, thanks!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> that was the first time I had watched the website through the whole week process. That looked like really great information.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> Just popping in to say hi. Was at my CAP Wing Conference this weekend and am tired and fighting a sinus and throat thing.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My son-in-law commented on how congested Carys sounds, and my eyes and nose itch like fire, and drainage everywhere. Bleh.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Eww
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:13:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I swear my poor cat shares my allergies. She gets gunky at the same times I do.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> bummer
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Sorry you're not feeling well CapnGramma
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hello all
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:22 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, we did all those things. Rehearsals, hair and makeup... And the meal was wondeful.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Nice.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Cool
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:45 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Shiral and CapnGramma
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:14:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:15:23 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hi, Shiral and Capngramma
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:15:23 PM EDT] <KK> I'll certainly try to go again.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:15:52 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Good that the food was great. Sometimes event food is not.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi I'm Shiral and I'm a Deryni addict..
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> It was a great conference, though. I taught a session on Finance that went very well.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hello, Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:15 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Did you discover any premising young writers, KK?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:22 PM EDT] <KK> I've been judging since 2017, but this is the first time I've been able to go to the gala.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Nice
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hi , I'm Laurna and I am a deryni Addict too...
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:16:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Glad you had fun, KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:17:11 PM EDT] <KK> Read some really good stories, some of which are published in their Writers of the Future anthology.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:17:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> So glad you came out to Californial, next time Shiral and I need to get together and take you to lunch.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:17:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh so they have an anthology?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:17:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hello, I'm Evie, and I'm currently overdosing on 15th Century Gwynedd, so I'm taking a break here. 😉
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Nice to meet you overdosing Evie.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think WotF has an annual anthology. I have one or two of their earlier ones.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:18 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I've been re-reading my favorite Childe Morgan trilogy.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:26 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> sets out a table of scones, cream, jam and her magic chatroom teapot
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Tea, I need tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:18:58 PM EDT] * The_Bee adds cider and mead.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:19:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Sounds like a good plan, Laurna
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:19:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hopefully it can to Earl Grey green tea. I can't find it anywhere anymore
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> do, not to. Rented fingers
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The pot pours your favorite kind of tea, whatever that may be
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I am halfway through a bottle of porter that found itself into my house somehow, but have pretty much decided I am not a fan, despite the "roasted coffee notes and graham cracker sweetness" that the label claims that it has.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:17 PM EDT] <KK> It was pretty busy. I did get to go to dinner one night with Scott's brother and his family. Yummy sushi!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Nice outing, KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Not a fan of sushi, though
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:20:57 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I had to go pour up my ice tea. Came back to Bubbie in my chair.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Very Nice. I knew you would be very busy.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> good evening! Sorry I'm late, had to take a call
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The only fish I'm a fan of is the sort that swims in an aquarium. And I prefer it still swimming.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:27 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hi, Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> hello Mark
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:32 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Marc
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> How was the event in Californiia, KK? 😃
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:45 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <azdesertrose> adds cheese, Triscuits and other crackers, and a fruit and veggie tray to the tea table.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Are you a Deryni Addict? This is the twelve step program for the people who don't want to be sured
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:21:53 PM EDT] <KK> Earl Grey is a black tea, not green. Shouldn't be that hard to find, though finding a good one is a bit more difficult.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:16 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, Marc. It was good.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:18 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> HEB has it. If you're in Texas.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Did you Fly home thourgh that storm, yesterday. Or did the planes stay well away from those storms.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Are you a Deryni Addict? This is the twelve step program for the people who don't want to be cured
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Tetley did it for a while. It was magnificent
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:39 PM EDT] <KK> My favorite is Republic of Tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Twinings or Bigelow might.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:42 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Captain Picard was an Earl Grey fan.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think Earl Grey green would basically be a green tea that has bergamot added, wouldn't it?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:22:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I can't drink green tea; I like the taste but rather dislike the monster headache that ensues.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm drinking a cup of Republic of Tea's Mrs. Patmore's Pudding Tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> green tea is hard on my stomach
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Not sure, Evie. I never investigate it that closely. I just liked it
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:34 PM EDT] <KK> Ouch! Hadn't heard of certain teas inducing headache.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'll drink anything as long as you call it teaa
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Black tea, on the other hand, runs in my veins.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Except sweet
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> What if we just call it tea, Marc? 😉
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:23:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I think it's related to the red wine headache problem.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> the extra a is essential :p
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> NO SWEET TEA? Heresy! 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Which I also get, and which is also a shame because my taste buds quite like a glass of red.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Uh-oh, Evie has discovered her inner Loris
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:27 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> We must have Sweet Tea!!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> We know what to do with heretics here, don't we?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> No Sweet tea allowed in my house.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> mostly cofffee for me, but sometimes Darjeeling tea or sweet tea
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Unsweatened tea for me
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I don't even have sugar
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:24:56 PM EDT] <KK> Ah, wouldn't have linked it to red wine headaches, but sounds plausible.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> How about honey in the tea?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Sweet tea (or more accurately, half sweet and half unsweet, since Southern sweet tea might as well be tea syrup if not diluted) is my go-to when I'm dining out.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> How can you bake cookies without sugar, Laurna?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> House wine of the South = sweetened iced black tea, mint or lemon optional but recommended.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I like honey with herbal tea, sugar/splenda with black tea
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:45 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I drink unsweet at home but outside home I almost always drink sweet tea unless it's a place that I know doesn't do tea well. I hate ice tea that is almost water.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Exactly, DR!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:25:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Apparently Honey is nearly as bad for diabetics as real sugar. So honey is only for Colds.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:26:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yes, HM! If I want water, I'll drink water. If I order tea, I want it to look and taste like TEA.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:26:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If it's just a need to avoid sugars, tea sweetened with Splenda works nearly as well.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:26:44 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Amen, DR!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:26:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> So after judging writers OF the future, is there hope of writing IN your future, KK? (No, of course that wasn't a hint.)
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I should have to check for carbonation to be able to tell a glass of tea from a glass of Coke.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Doctor says Fake surgars aren't any better for you. so I don't do that either.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Or even of editing an anthology?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> We could always use more anthologies!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And Fanthologies.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> My bookshelf and hands, specifically.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yikes. DR. I am not drinking that.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:27:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> House MD scared me away from those.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:28:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Just good strong black tea, that's all.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:28:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And when I drink hot black tea, it's proper builder's tea, nice and strong.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:28:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Just good WEAK HOT black tea
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:28:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Weak tea? I despair.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:28:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> hehe
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Revanne and/or Demercia and/or any of our other Brits are going to come in here and laugh themselves silly reading this transcript, this weird little Southern Yank talking about builder's tea!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> "Builder's tea refers to a strong cup of tea. Builder's tea is typically robust and has a rich, dark beige colour." Thank you, Wikipedia.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Isn't weak unsweet tea basically just brown water? 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I know, I already told you I love to drink just HOT water too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The best tea is a irreplicable concoction of whatever your heart desires at the moment.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:29:29 PM EDT] <KK> Not crazy about iced tea, though sun tea is good.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I live on iced tea all summer although I usually make it in a large batch of sun tea in a big pitcher. Then add ice to my glass
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> I also prefer my tea weak, but I think that's due to my grandmothers. I remember them drying teabagd to re-use them for their afternoon cuppa
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:17 PM EDT] <KK> Not a fan of iced tea, unless it's sun tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I cannot with Laurna. 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:27 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I heard recently (or read, probably) that warm /hot water will cute phlegm in the throat.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> This one time I had a headache so I put my acetaminophen in the tea along with the usual, and it did the trick... tasted like medicine, though.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:46 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> cut, not cute
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL Evie. It is all good.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:30:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I even converted a few British friends to iced tea, at least in Florida in the summer. Sue said she'd always wondered why we'd put ice in perfectly good tea, and then she dealt with central Florida in June and the light bulb lit up.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:31:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> I like hot mint tea for sinus congestion. The mint is a mild irritant, so it helps loosen gunk in the sinus cavities
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:31:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yes, exactly!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:31:32 PM EDT] <KK> I think builders tea usually has milk in it, too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:31:32 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Same in Texas. Too darn hot for hot tea in the warm months.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:31:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I love mint tea also, as long as it's peppermint. Not really a fan of spearmint.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:00 PM EDT] <KK> I think builders tea usually has milk in it, too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It's too darn hot for anything but sitting naked in the shower drinking something with ice in it!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I should be taking note, as usual 🤔
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Wow
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I should be taking notes, as usual 🤔
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hot mint tea or hot black tea with lemon, either with honey, for sinus gunk or a sore throat or both.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> Had one person insist that hot beverages make you sweat and that cools you down. I laughed so hard . . .
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:25 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> LOL! Just about, Shiral!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> My favorites are Earl Grey and English Breakfast. Also love Prince of Wales but it is harder to find
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Wouldn't the shower negate the need for the ice? 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> i am with you, Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:32 PM EDT] <KK> Well, why isn't my comment showing up on screen?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I like milk and sugar in hot tea, lemon and sugar in iced tea
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> No Evie. when it is 115F you do what you need to do
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:32:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> If you live somewhere dry enough that sweating works, that might actually work, CG.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I see that comment, KK
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Not always, Evie. Maybe a cold bath would be more practical when it comes to summertime tea drinking
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Not in Florida or anywhere else the air's easier to swim through than walk through.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:17 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Depends,E vie. In summer months our cold water comes out lukewarm
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That sometimes happens, KK, though if you mean the comment about builder's tea with milk in it, I see it
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:20 PM EDT] <KK> Ah, i'd scrolled up too far.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Did "Camber's Ghost" always look like his ghost? Neat.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:46 PM EDT] <bynw> lots of chat going on today so it probably scrolled on by
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:33:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't put milk in my tea, but I brew it strong enough that the spoon can stand up on its own.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I do put milk in my coffee, on the rare occasion that I drink it.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I like milk in mine. I learned to take it that way from our English neighbors when I was a kid in Italy.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:16 PM EDT] <bynw> @Marc, yes. At least on the Discord side
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Y'all ever just mix your tea and coffee? That's when the gloves really come off.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> milk in hot tea and coffee, no milk in the iced versions
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> No milk or sugar in my coffee
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I might try it sometime, but I don't really keep milk in the house.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh no no no.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I think the Brits have it right. A good hot cuppa leals many things
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I do not want tea flavored coffee or coffee flavored tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:55 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I like black coffee. Prefer that in New Orleans.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:34:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Espresso, anyone?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I've heard of mixing tea and coffee, but I might have to call in Loris to deal with that one.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> If I want tea, I want tea, and if I want coffee, I want coffee.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I like BOTH tea and coffee, but emphatically not together in one cup
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:38 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> No (shudder!) not together!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> NO Marc. You absolutely can not mix tea and coffee.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:40 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I see it twice.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> But yes, a nice hot cuppa will fix a lot of problems and the only problem it'll make worse is a need for the loo.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:48 PM EDT] * bynw doesn't like either
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I see it twice.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:35:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> You'd have to call it Teaffee
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Join me, evie and desert! We shall pioneer an alchemical union between drinks, and it shall be known as... toffee
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Cea
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> LOL! Um, no. That's not how toffee works. 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Nope nope nope.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> lol
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Toffee is a divine substance that ALWAYS gets me in trouble
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:36:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> are you sure it's divine, then?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It might be diabolic
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, with a touch of the diabolical
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Nothing divine about alchemy, necessarily. Supernatural, certianly.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:34 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Sprouts has great chocolate covered toffee.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> toffee can pull your teeth out
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Love love real toffee,
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The bad guys in the second big templar book were alchemists, you may recall.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:37:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> worth it
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Which is why I purposely do not keep it in my house.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:02 PM EDT] <bynw> well that was a brief little storm. now it's all sunny out again
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Maybe if they're loose already
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Almond Roca. Just for christmas time only
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Divinity is a different snack, though, isn't it?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:36 PM EDT] <KK> Bynw, have you gotten tornadoes in your part f the world today?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> As long as you don't get carried to Oz on a twister, Bynew
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:38:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Re mixing tea and coffee: https://tenor.com/Vd0K.gif
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:39:32 PM EDT] <bynw> not today. but there were a number of tornados in iowa and nebraska the other day
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:39:48 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> LOL!!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:39:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> One of my mother's coworkers at her last job was nicknamed the Alchemist. He was one of three chemists who worked there, and his name was Al.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:39:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Stayed safe, Bynw?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:39:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Just watching the weather radar for those was terrifying, Bynw, and I don't even live there!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:40:30 PM EDT] <KK> Al chemist. I like it!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:40:40 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> We had one near Waco.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:40:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> brb, need to turn the a/c on
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:40:57 PM EDT] <KK> Tornado or alchemist?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:41:12 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> LOL! Tornado.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:41:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> A/c time already? we are still only at 73F today
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:41:33 PM EDT] <bynw> elkhorn nebraska was badly hit before the storms moved into iowa
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:41:37 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> I've been having t go back and forth, A/C to heat,
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:41:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Goodness. it's already 80+ here
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:13 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> 79 here right now.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:15 PM EDT] <The_Bee> 56F here
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Inside temp says 77F, which means it's likely low 80s outside. No wonder I'm dying
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> After that talk before, I'm going to go make some tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yup, at my library, the building is always the perfect temperature for whatever the weather was three days ago. Technology can't keep up with nature's mood swings this year
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> We're heading back to the boreal forests of the north. No need for air conditioning there yet
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm great with 77F outdoors with a light breeze. In a still house, not so much!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:42:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Our weather still playubg roller coaster. Very hot tomorrow and Tues, storms Weds, don't get out of the 50s on sat. Crazy
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Before you go back north, Jerusha, look in a Publix, especially if you've got a nice big one nearby, for your Earl Grey green tea.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> When do you head back, jerusha?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:14 PM EDT] <bynw> Minden Iowa was badly hit and even Pleasant Hill in the Des Moines metro area got a few too
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:20 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Everyone at work has blankets & coats, summer and winter.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:42 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I saw a tv program about climate change. Winters are getting shorter; springis coming earlier.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I keep a blanket and sweater at my office year-round also
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I did look in Publix, DR; no luck!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:43:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Tuesday, Evie
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> In the summer time, we needed a sweater for inside the hospital, but we did not need one during the winter time.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My university habit of carrying a light jacket or at least a long-sleeved button-up shirt everywhere serves me well when the weather is having her mood swings.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Looking forward to the trip home?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:27 PM EDT] <bynw> according the the news it was 106 reported tornadoes across Nebraska, Iowa, Texas, Kansas, and Missouri on Friday

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Not really, but I'm not a good traveller
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:44:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> College campus was comprised of a lot of old buildings (by US standards) and the HVAC was . . . inefficient, let's say.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:45:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yikes. Bynw
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:45:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That doesn't surprise me. When I stopped watching the coverage, I think they had issued over 92 tor warnings at that point.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:45:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hope Cameron and Anna fared ok in the storms
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:45:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Holy crap! That's scary!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:45:49 PM EDT] <KK> I messaged them a couple of hours ago, but havent heard back yet.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:46:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I watched until they said they might have a server crash from the number of people watching. So I figured I didn't need to be there when others really need that info.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:46:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It was! That exceeded the number we had in the April 27, 2011 outbreak that hit Tuscaloosa hard and nearly got me! (That one went airborne again after hitting the B'ham outskirts, but I know from the track that it went directly over us, and we ended up getting debris from it in our yard.)

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:48:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I have been through a hurricane and near small waterspoots but Not a tornado. I think I will take an earthquake(not a big one) instead
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:48:56 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Tornadoes are faster and scarier
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The ones this past Friday, Marc. Bywn lives in the path of those storms
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I've been through a few hurricanes. I'll take that over a tornado, especially a spate of them, any day.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh dang. Glad Bynw's okay.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:37 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Everyone have a good week and stay safe!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> A few small earthquakes too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> You too!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> oops. Bread must have been within reach
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> G'night, HoundMistress!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hurricanes can spawn tornadoes, so I don't see them as an improvement, especially since tornadoes tend not to kill you with flooding either.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Nite HMM\ Have a good week
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:49:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's like somebody blew the big trumpet in the sky, eh?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hurricanes are like getting a three-fer
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:07 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Yes, It was Jerusha. My fault. Byeeeee!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Back, my stupid internet can cut out on me at very inopportune times.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Have a good week, HM
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:33 PM EDT] <bynw> with a hurricane you can have some warning about it. even days in advance. not the same with a tornado. you are lucky to get minutes.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:50:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yeah, but hurricanes at least you have some warning; tornadoes like this mess on Friday spin up too fast for my liking.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> agreed
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Bye HM
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, we do get up to a week of warning now that a severe storm with a high risk of tornadoes is on the way. But yeah, with the actual tornado itself, that's only a few minutes of warning, usually.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And IIRC, this mess on Friday was predicted to be severe but it got even more severe than expected quickly. No. Thank. You.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:24 PM EDT] <KK> At least one knows when a hurricane is coming, and can prepare.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Earthquakes can scare you silly. Another natural phenomenon that doesn't give a warning.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:51:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> the way you're all talking about it, nothing can convince me to move to a flatland. Scary
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, I've gone through a few earthquakes, and again, not a fan
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:01 PM EDT] <KK> Very true re earthquakesl
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I mean, hurricanes can strengthen quickly too, but they usually do that over open water, before they've made landfall.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I am going to drink my soothing weak tea, while we discuss natural disaters.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Like Idalia last year. That thing got UGLY in a hurry.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:52:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Marc, I'm not even in flatland. I'm in the foothills of the Appalachian chain. And we still are Tornado Central here, because Alabama is part of Dixie Alley, which is to the east of the usual Tornado Alley.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:53:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Loma Prieta in 1989 was the largest one I've ever experienced. I DON'T want to experience one worse than that.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:53:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh, you were in the Bay Area for that one? That was A Mess.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:53:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I was still digging out from Hugo on the other side of the continent.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:54:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I might have been to the point of volunteering with the food bank by the time that happened, but I don't think we'd gone back to school yet.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:54:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> BIG mess. And yes. I heard "The Bay Bridge is down" so I thought the WHOLE bridge had fallen into the bay. I was pretty relieved to find that that hadn't been the case.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:54:58 PM EDT] <bynw> we dont get hurricanes here just derecho's --- hurricane force straight line winds
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:54:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My ex-boyfriend and his fiance at the time (engaged a few years after we broke up) went through Hugo in an apartment very near the coast. I think that's the first and last time he was planning on ever making that mistake.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:55:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Right?!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:55:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> That scared the heck out of me about driving on double decker bridges.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:55:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I had job interviews in the Bay Area. I was changing planes in Kansas City when I caught the TV news about that quake.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:55:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I've never experienced a big hurricane. I'm in NO rush to do so, either.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:55:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hugo was terrifying. Let me tell you, the eye of a Cat 4 hurricane at midnight is some spooky shit, pardon my language.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I believe you, DR.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think I'll pass on that also
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:25 PM EDT] <bynw> for those lovely earthquakes. they are very minor when we get them. sometimes you don't even notice it. but we do have those too.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Everything about a Cat 4 hurricane is spooly and scary
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And it's another one that strengthened very rapidly, going from 2 to a strong 4 in about 36 hours.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:56:55 PM EDT] <bynw> now of course when the new madrid fault line cracks wide open again. then the midwest will be toast
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:57:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> we draged our anchor in Costa Rica across the bay and nearing rocks during a huricane that happened about 9pm at night.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:57:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No argument here, DFK, but for it to go from howling wind to dead quiet . . . creeeeeeeeeepy.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:57:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, I'm not sorry to be living a distance from New Madrid. I used to live right next to the Mississippi River.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:58:59 PM EDT] <KK> When Hurricane Charlie hit Miami, I was in NY for the World's Fair, but I still have the letter my sister wrote to me, reporting on then damage. We had a couple of Australian pines come down in our back yard, which fortunately was deep enough that it didn't do any damage to buildings. Took out our neighbor's clothesline, tho
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:58:59 PM EDT] <KK> ugh.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:59:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> We had an earthquake in Charleston my senior year of high school. I was in Latin class, which was in one of the mobile classrooms, and we thought the classroom's AC unit had fallen off right at first.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [7:59:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Wasn't until later that we realized it hadn't been just our classroom!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:01:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Dust storms in the desert aren't any fun either, though as long as you're indoors, the worst part is cleaning up because it doesn't matter how good your window and door gaskets are, there's sand EVERYWHERE.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:02:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> On a more cheerful note, I've been teasing the Pod-Child and my son-in-law that they hexed themselves by naming the new grandpuppy Maximus. He weighed 13 lbs when they adopted him; a week and a half later at the vet he was 20 lbs.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:14:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Are they any relation to the geese thatsaved Rome?

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:16:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> One characteristic of Filipino English is that there is a lot of p/f confusion, since the original language didn't have the "f" sound in it. (That was introduced by Spain.) So one of the jokes going around on the US Navy base in the Philippines was "What do you call the Philippine Air Force? A pair of pliers.")

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:18:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My mom has been here for 62 years and still has trouble with that sometimes. When we lived near Ft. Payne, she kept calling it Port Fayne.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:18:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Or Port Payne
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:18:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Port Payne might be accurate
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:19:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The mother of one of my SCA friends is Cuban, and her husband had to tell her when she went shopping for home goods to ask for bed LINENS, not bed sheets. The mispronunciation from Spanish did NOT go over well in Sears in the 1960s.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:19:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> YES! Mom has that issue too. 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:20:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> She says "linens" and "seashore"
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:20:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That long e sound is hard. 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:20:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Well, Spanish doesn't have the short I sound.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:21:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No distinction between "tin" and "teen."
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:21:44 PM EDT] <KK> I didn't realize that Canadian geese were that aggressive.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:22:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> You leave them alone and they'll leave you alone, but don't annoy them.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:22:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh yeah. "I miss the beaches in the Philippines" is a sentence Mom has to be very careful with. Hence, seashore. 😄
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:22:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> They could have honestly been viillains in Two Crowns, KK!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:22:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> "What did you just call your sisters?!?!?!"

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:23:04 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Geese and turkeys. One of our cities has made a big deal about turkeys attacking people.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:23:06 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, zooming.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:23:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Cool.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:23:39 PM EDT] <KK> No turkeys being dropped from helicopters, I trust.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:24:13 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'll be there 3pm eastern. My computer tried to move my time zone to the west coast.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:24:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Turkeys will be Zooming, or will it be Canada Geese?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:24:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> If it's the geese, then God help us
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:24:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The guy who wrote that actually got fired for doing something similar, again because he didn't know any better, and when he became a writer for that show, he decided to draw on that experience and embellish it a bit for the sake of the script.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:25:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Although it was greatly exaggerated for the show
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:25:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> oh wow
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:25:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'm not surprised. People do some really hare-brained stuff sometimes.

[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:29:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Raymond Chandler kept a list of quips and marked them off when he put them in a novel. The one that stuck with me is "She had a nice cool goddamnyou smile."
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:29:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I read that line (she was talking about the mother of one of her son's classmates, who she perceived to be SuperMom, showing her and everyone else up), and I had to set the book down, take off my glasses, and find the Kleenex for the tears of laughter.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:30:32 PM EDT] <KK> Sometimes a line will just hit you in the funnybone, and you can't help reacting out loud.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:30:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's in _Traveling Mercies_.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:30:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yeah. I LOVE Anne Lammott!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:31:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I made the mistake of reading Good Omens with a respiratory disease. The laughing led to coughing fits that wrecked me.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:31:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I need to read some Raymond chandler one day. Another classic name, like Lovecraft, King, Howard, Christie, etc...
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:31:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh, yeah, that's a big oops, TM!
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:31:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I've had quite few Bad Thoughts that would make Jesus take to the gin bottle
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:32:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I have a pendant that was a gift from a friend whom I nagged into reading the book right around the time the show premiered. It's a scan of the page where Aziraphale swears for the second time in about a page and a half.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:32:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think gin from the cat dish is a greater low of desperation, Shiral
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:32:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh definitely. But Jesus wasn't known for loving gin and tonics in general
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:32:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> To be fair, Az has just gotten the news that the Apocalypse is imminent, so if ever there were a time for an angel to drop an F bomb, I think that qualifies.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:33:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, true, the invention of gin might have been needed first. Not to mention tonic.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:33:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> More like take up the cross.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:33:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well yes, if you want to be fussy. not to mention the invention of cat dishes
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:33:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I prefer Dashiell Hammett, myself. Red Harvest ... when a chapter in the middle is titled "The Seventeenth Murder" ...
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:34:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The ancient form of cat dish was known as the granary. That's where the mice liked to hang out.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:34:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yup. Having a cat in the granary was a good medieval mousetrap
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:35:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I imagine that there were a few farmers who realized the barn cats kept the mice out of the winter's food for the people and would leave out water dishes for the kitties.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:36:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> There have always been mean people, but there have always been kind people too.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:36:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Gin is the bigger problem than a cat dish, methinks.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:36:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Very likely. And probably cats figured out how to catch a drink in the water trough for larger animals
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:37:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> If Jesus could turn water into wine, what did he turn into gin?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:37:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Turpentine?
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:37:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't think junipers grow in that part of the world.
[Sunday, April 28, 2024] [8:37:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Cedars of Lebanon, tho.

"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.)
