[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi BalanceTheEnergies
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:11 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello all
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:17 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, all hunkered down people!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:30 PM EDT] <bynw> hi KK, BalanceTheEnergies
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:32 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How was your week, KK?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:00:52 PM EDT] <KK> I trust that everyone is surviving the current mess?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:01:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So far so good. All family members are accounted for and okay so far.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:01:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And you?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:01:39 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> So far. Am still going to work. My mother has oral surgery tomorrow
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:02:14 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hello everyone. Am hunkered down too
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:02:51 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good quiet Sunday everyone
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:03:12 PM EDT] <KK> Week was ok. I decided this was not a good time to buy a house, so that to let that one go, on advice of my finance gy in SF. I'd actually decided before I talked to him, and that just put it over the top. Seller ot the little house obviously was disappointed, but was prepared to put it on the market. Not that many people will be buying hosues in the current situation..
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:03:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> I have 5 pretty puppies, they are 5 days old born on St Patricks day. 4 boys and 1 girl all Tri colored,
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:04:08 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, cool. You have to giove them all Irish names.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:04:09 PM EDT] <bynw> my oldest son and his gf just got back from a week's vacation in mexico. so they are holding up for the next 14 days to make sure they didnt bring anything back with them. we went and got them so groceries
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:04:16 PM EDT] <Laurna> Sorry about the house, KK.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:04:31 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> This Sunday is too quiet. With the financial uncertainty probably not a good time to make any big purchases thouhg I'm sorry about the little house.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:04:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> The middle boy we named Paddy
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:05:00 PM EDT] <KK> It wasn't the perfect house. I was worrying increasingly about how I was going to get Booker in and out without cutting a doggie door into the door between Living room and basement.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:05:04 PM EDT] <Laurna> The big huge boy my brotherinlaw named Burk for a Burkshire hog. LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:05:10 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> My vet has set up Wimsey with two months' steroids, got his seasonal ear problem treated and his rabies shot. His grace is napping on my lap
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:05:22 PM EDT] <bynw> that's too bad about the house KK. but very understandable right now in these times.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:06:09 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> I'm sure the perfect house is out there and you will find it when all this craziness is over.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:06:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> What DerynifanK said. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:06:23 PM EDT] <KK> And it does take some of the pressure off, to get this house decluttered and ready for market. I've made it through this winter, so have a breather from the gas bill for a few months.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:06:23 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I. Concur
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:06:58 PM EDT] <Laurna> I agree that right now is not a good time to make big choses like house buying
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:07:34 PM EDT] <KK> So, Laurna, 5 puppies, all tri-color. That's what you were hoping for, isn't it?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:07:42 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am running my heater more than I have all winter.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:07:55 PM EDT] <KK> Gotta keep those puppies warm.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:07:57 PM EDT] <Laurna> They are so cute
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:07:58 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> I do feel bad for so many people who are having their lives interrupted. This si my grandson's senior year in high school and he was due to graduate in June but is missing out on so many senior year activities
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:08:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, Kiddo's RN graduation has been cancelled. Waiting to hear about NCLEX scheduling.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:08:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She is NOT a happy camper, but what can you do?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:08:37 PM EDT] <Laurna> Mamma is doing a real good job of staying with thime and feeding them. But she does like it when I am in the room with her. so I am sleeping on the cousch next to her
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:08:51 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hetterowever, love puppies. Nothing like cuddling a puppy to make you feel b
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:08:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Sorry to hear that DR.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:23 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hello all
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Shiral!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:31 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:37 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good day to you Shiral
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:40 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello SHiral
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:09:51 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi DR, Bynw DarkSIr,
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:10 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> And BTE Festil and Sidekick
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:20 PM EDT] <KK> Ah, but the stlories he'll have to tell, 10 years from now. "That was 2020, when everything shut down for a few weeks. You guys don't know how good you've got it!"
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:27 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hello KK
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:51 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, Shiral!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, I've seen some jokes about how this is this generations "two miles uphill in the snow" story.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:10:54 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Shiral
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:08 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> So true. All teaching is online and he says his teachers have given the most work he has had all year
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:09 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, yeah....
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> *generation's
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:21 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> But still, it's disappointing to the students who have worked very hard for that moment
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> Oh dear to all that extra homework
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:51 PM EDT] <KK> True. On the other hand, they won't have to worry about finals.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:11:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, and PodChild is aggravated because she didn't bother attending her LPN graduation or pinning ceremony precisely because she was looking to the RN ceremonies.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:12:27 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Perhaps they will reschedule at a later date when things settle down
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:12:29 PM EDT] <KK> She's still got the knowledge and the title, though.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:00 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> As long as they give her the diploma....but the ceremony is what makes it feel special and official
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> On the upside, she'll probably get to transfer to the Mayo hospital; as an LPN, she couldn't work in the hospital so she was working in a family-practice clinic, but her supervisor has been making noise about the hospital wanting her.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:25 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Right now, she's certainly needed
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:38 PM EDT] <KK> Not the greatest time to be moving to a job in a hospital, though perhaps it will all be resolved by then.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:13:43 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Oh they will have finals online. However they did cancel SOL testing
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, true.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> Starting in a family clinic would be a good starting point.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:28 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hospitals need everyone they can get right now
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:43 PM EDT] * bynw likes it that Laurna can actually join the chat this week
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:47 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hospitals need every PPE they can get right now
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She said that actually, about the family-practice clinic being good experience. You get to see a little of everything except ER and OR.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:14:57 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's a scary situation. So to thelp them out, WE need to flatten that darn cuve
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:15:01 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> curve, even
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:15:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or catten it. ;)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:15:50 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Cats are telling me the extra lap time and scritches are nice but you know....they need some space and can't understand why I'm home all the time
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:16:10 PM EDT] <Laurna> We were out of masks when I was last there before the puppies were born. I reallly HOPE they got more masks when I go back next week.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:16:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> For those who are wondering what I meant by "catten." https://imgur.com/gallery/fu19u2A
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:16:20 PM EDT] <KK> Yep. Not fun, but better than getting sick. That said, I have to go out tomorrow to find dog chow. Chewy.com is out of almost everything, but there's a feed store in town. I'm hoping I can get some there.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:16:22 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> LOL, Love that
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:16:55 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I'm glad that I stocked up before the Shelter In Place Order came
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:01 PM EDT] <bynw> most feed stores should have dog food (if they arent out) and they will have BIG bags of it too
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm in a new SCA sewing group working on sewing masks for medical personnel. We're still figuring out what pattern is going to be best, but we're working on it all.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:15 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I went to a local petco yesterday, entered bus by the back door
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:21 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> ayway to make it bigger for old eyesn
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:30 PM EDT] <Laurna> They say to put a little Cottage Cheese in with mommas food for calcium. My sister went to three stores before she found some.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:17:30 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Costco was a mad house. It's the first time I've ever been in a Shopping Cart Traffic Jam
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:18:13 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Oddly, here, one grocery chain was low on produce, the other on meat
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:18:21 PM EDT] <KK> I'd normally be making a Costco run this week--bot now, not. Local market will have to suffice.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:08 PM EDT] <Laurna> I was going to try the grociery store tomarrow morning to get food for next week.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Publix has employees cleaning the carts as soon as you put them back (or when they bring them back from the parking lot). The parking lot at "my" Publix is so small they don't have cart corrals.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:13 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I'm being strict and strategic with my chocolate intake
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:14 PM EDT] <bynw> i have been able to find everything so far when going shopping. limited quantities but available
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:43 PM EDT] <bynw> i hope you dont run out of that Shiral
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The only thing I had trouble finding (and I did find it, but there wasn't much on the shelves) was dish detergent.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:19:56 PM EDT] <Laurna> Shiral that is good will power.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:03 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I used a grocery delivery service for the first time last week. No TP & no isopropyl alcohol
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:07 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Which is why I haven't opened the package yet, Bynw. =o)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:20 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> snaps fingers and sets up the tea table
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:21 PM EDT] <KK> I forgot a couple of things wehen I went to Walmart last week (had to pick up a RX), and didn't even think of dog chow. Dumb.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:53 PM EDT] * DesertRose puts slices of BLT frittata on the tea table for those who want savory food rather than sweet.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:20:58 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> the only way I remember everything hwne I go is with a list
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:00 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Well the prescription was definitely a necessity
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:19 PM EDT] Join The_Bee (The_Bee@owirc-p4l.arb.61.73.IP) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Bee! Hi!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:25 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:27 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:28 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> adds a plate of cucumber sandwiches.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Happy belated Bee Day!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:34 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi all!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:36 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:40 PM EDT] <Laurna> I love cucumber sandwiches.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:40 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:52 PM EDT] * bynw always goes with a list to the stores
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:54 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am out of bread to that would be perfect with my tea
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:21:56 PM EDT] <KK> Today I also discovered that many of the staples I notmally keep on had apparently were eaten when Cameron was last here. No spaghetti sauce, no mac n cheese. Hopefully I'll get lucky tomorrow, though I've heard that both those items have been in short supply..
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:22:42 PM EDT] <Laurna> If people stop panic buying the stores would be able to restock.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:22:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Indeed
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:22:54 PM EDT] <bynw> very true
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:22:58 PM EDT] <bynw> but they are sheeple
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:23:10 PM EDT] <KK> I usually take a list, but I got distracted and forgot. I've got two lists going now. :-(
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:23:10 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL sheeple?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:23:10 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Made brunswick stew which is comforting in the cold
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:23:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Yes. You don't need a lifetime supply.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:23:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm incapussitated.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:24:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys says Hi and purrs at everyone.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:24:33 PM EDT] <Laurna> Oh and Happy MotheringSunday to any one over the pond
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:24:34 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> scritches to Carys
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:24:38 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's weird what people panic over. I went to the drug store a week ago and their paper product aisle was EMPTY. Next to it was their alcohol aisle which was fullly stocked.Hi Carys
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:24:45 PM EDT] * The_Bee scritches Carys.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:03 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Happy mothering sunday to mums over the pond
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's a smart one, this cat. If she wants attention and I don't give it soon enough for her liking, she'll get up on the desk and sit directly between me and my monitor.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:18 PM EDT] <bynw> i don't even get why people are panicking over TP
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:23 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's definitely helped with the staying home and inside since it's been more like January than March where I am.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Happy Mothering Sunday!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I know, right? It's mainly a respiratory virus; if you're panic-buying any paper product, it ought to be Kleenex.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:25:54 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I know! It's weird. And inconsiderate
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:02 PM EDT] <KK> Chilly here, too. Welcome to Spring!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And you oughtn't panic-buy anything anyway.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:18 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Really don't understand the fixation on TP
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:24 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's about making sure there's enough for everybody to get what they need.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> There is a lot of snow on the mountains around the valley
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:38 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Me. Either bynw. The rubbing alcohol I kind of get; I use it to cleans my tablet & phone screens
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:41 PM EDT] <Laurna> Supposed to rain again tonight
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:42 PM EDT] <bynw> exactly DesertRose. RESPIRATORY not the other end

[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:53 PM EDT] <KK> There <is> the matter of the kids being home from school all day; makes an impact on the TP supply.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:26:59 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:05 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hello!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My big concern os cat food. I hope the pet clinic where I get Melantha's meals will be open.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:11 PM EDT] <bynw> hi dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:26 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi, KK. How are you holding up?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:27 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I did go for a walk around my neighborhood this morning to get some vitamin D. Everyone was being very careful to maintain safe distancing, but we were also acknowledging one another with smiles and hellos
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I haven't really changed my activity level that much, except for a few things I regularly attend that have been cancelled for the foreseeable, because I spend a lot of time at home anyway.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:27:55 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:05 PM EDT] <KK> I'm great on cat food, both wet and dry. It's the dog chow that's a problem. I've only got enough to maybe get to the end of the week.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> Call the pet clinic. I went to the vet a few days ago with the puppies and they picked up the puppies from my car to check them rather than me goining inside
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:14 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I'll be doing some teleworking in the next few weeks. LIbrary closed until April 13 at the earliest
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:25 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> This week, we've been scrambling to set everything up.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:32 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> My vet did the same Laurna
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:28:32 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah most of the meetings i attend have been canceled and moved online. including church
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:03 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Can't let Booker go hungry!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I need to play with Zoom again; I haven't used it in a while, and we're talking about doing the barony meeting scheduled for 1 April that way.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:30 PM EDT] <KK> No, or he'll be eating his tail for real. As long as he doesn't go after Mr. Gus.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:30 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> My writing group will be meeting via Skype tomorrow evening
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:37 PM EDT] <bynw> most are using zoom too or other forms of video chat
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:29:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No attacking Gus, Booker!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:30:18 PM EDT] <Dennis> I've got two weeks of wet food and well over a month of dry food. The mysterious Catface Jones is confused but happy about having me home all the time.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:30:51 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Yup. And the cats and I have a lovely nap mostly together in the afternoons.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:30:52 PM EDT] <KK> Actually, I just realized that my cat chow is a brand new large bag, and I could feed that to Booker for a few days, at a pinch.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:31:15 PM EDT] <bynw> cat food has a lot of sodium in it though
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:31:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, not a good idea long-term but better than poor Booker having to eat his own tail.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:31:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> And Gus certainly doesn't want to become a snack
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:31:42 PM EDT] <Laurna> Try not to feed your dog cat food. It has tomuch protein in it.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:31:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Gus would rather be a lap-warmer than a snack, I think.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:03 PM EDT] <Laurna> better to feed your dog chicken and rice if you run out
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Booker won't be insulted?O:3
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:19 PM EDT] <KK> Yes. And I do have a couple cans of wet dog food. Believe me, I know about the dangers of too much cat chow. I have rice, and could eke out his meals with that.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:20 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Dmitri thinks my mousepad is really meant for him.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:42 PM EDT] <KK> That assumes one has chicken, or can get it, Laurna.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:50 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Well it is a MOUSE
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:54 PM EDT] <Laurna> True
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:32:56 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Ah yes.....that's the rub
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:34:00 PM EDT] <The_Bee> If the pet shops are closed, I may have to try people food for melantha.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:34:40 PM EDT] <Laurna> I had baked up to chicken breasts before the puppies were born. I was glad because that is the only thing mamma dog would eat for the first two days. Now she is back to her normal food
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:35:02 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> How's the family doing, Laurna?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:35:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> which is not good: melantha's vet has her on a special prescription diet.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:35:39 PM EDT] <KK> Vet may well have one of his/her people come out to the car with the goods, if you call ahead.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:35:47 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Well....these are times when we all have to do some adapting.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:35:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> Everyone is good but at home. Brotherinlaw was layd off for now, so they are not sure what to do next
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:36:18 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Yikes. Although I was referring to the new puppies.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:36:27 PM EDT] <Laurna> HEHE
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:36:43 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's amazing and scary how fast everything shut down.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:36:52 PM EDT] <Dennis> Missy says "Meow," by the way.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:36:53 PM EDT] <Laurna> 5 healthy puppies born on St patricks day. 4boys 1girl
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:37:00 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:38:03 PM EDT] <Laurna> I will post pictures in a week or so when they are bigger
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:38:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yay puppy pics!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:38:32 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Can't wait to see them
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:38:43 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> My employer has sent the older employees home, those that didn't already choose to stay home.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:38:49 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hooray. Will look forward to the pics
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:39:21 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> No word on paying them, though. 8%$?!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:39:29 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I went into to work on March 14, and by 3 pm, the libraries had closed down
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:39:59 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am contiplating retiring early. I had planed to retire at the end of the year. but with other family members out of work, I can not support my father at his Asisted living by myself. So I may retire and then bring him home
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:40:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, that's what worries me, the number of people whose jobs just disappeared (or are about to disappear). I worry especially for little local businesses.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:40:19 PM EDT] <KK> Our libraries are also closed down, though several have a call-in service, where you tell them what you want and they'll brig it out to your car.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:40:38 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I had an afternoon walk with my mother in a public garden in the middle of last week. I realized as I drove home that there was NO traffic jam, and the freeway would normally have been a parking lot at that hour.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:40:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Our libraries are closed, too, but I've been using the heck out of the e-book lending app.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:40:53 PM EDT] <KK> But the main one, where I was about ready to unload some boxes of books, I think is totally closed.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:41:11 PM EDT] <Dennis> I've been lucky because my job is open and I can work from home. Worried for my wife, though, who is starting a new job that is open and cannot be done from home.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:41:12 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Yup. Right now we are DEFINITELY talking up our electronic resources
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:41:16 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Yeah, The hairdressers have been closed down, & the restaurants are either closed or carry-out/delivery
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:41:48 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> We appear to be living in VERY interesting times.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:41:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, all the restaurants have had to stop sit-down dining. Carry-out/drive-thru/delivery only.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:05 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Our libraries are closed and not charging overdue fines.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:11 PM EDT] <Laurna> I supose a hairdresser could make house calls. one on one
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:19 PM EDT] <bynw> i'm working from home since business fiber internet is part of the essential infrastructure
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> That is good Bynw
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:37 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, because their shops are closed. And no pedicures, of which I am in dire need.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Still not a great idea for reasons of exposure, Laurna. Especially given that one can be infected for as long as two weeks before showing symptoms. :(
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Gah, me too, KK.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:42:57 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I'm going to be doing a lot of FB posts reminding our public of everything we have on offer electronically
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:43:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I've been on a mystery kick, alternating between Brother Cadfael and Miss Fisher (late to the party on both, but loving both series so far).
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:01 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I was going to get a hair cut and color job at the start of the year, but procrastinated. Now it's going to have to wait a while longer.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:04 PM EDT] <Laurna> I love both of those
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:19 PM EDT] <KK> I have a friend in DC who works for the IRS, upper level. THey want him to work from home, but he doesn't have unlimited internet access and doesn't particularly want to shell out for it. His supervisors are working on the problem, allegedly.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I have nearly two years of unread comic books to keep me busy.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:33 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Brother Cadfael is a favorite of mine. Her stories are so well constructed and written.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I trim my own hair, and I *could* pedicure my own feet; I just enjoy the experience of a salon pedicure.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:44:44 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> And I like all the personalities among the monks
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:01 PM EDT] <KK> Soon I'll have to attack my feet, too.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> I agree.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, I'm enjoying that, along with the medieval England-Wales info; she did her homework.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:13 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I have gotten a fellow humanist hooked on Murdoch Mysteries. Our book discussion having been shelved for the time being
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:13 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Brother Cadfael is a favorite. Check our Daisy Dalrymple by Carola Dunn
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:24 PM EDT] <Laurna> I have read about half of them, I have a few I have not read yet of Cadfael
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:31 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Have been doing a lot of painting at my end.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:45:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Do you also read her Inspector Felse stories?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:02 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ellis Peters
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, if you have an e-reader or a smartphone, Laurna, they're available in e-book format, and Hoopla (library e-book lending app) appears to have the whole series. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:14 PM EDT] <Dennis> I'm amused by the lack of haircut access. I think I'm going too look like David Crosby in a couple of weeks.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not yet, Bee, but I'll probably do that once I finish Cadfael.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:23 PM EDT] <KK> I have <lots> of unread books here. I should be writing, but I'm concentrating on the decluttering for several hours each day. And things are too chaotic for any serious writing.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:40 PM EDT] <KK> Movies on cable. too. THey can become addictive.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:44 PM EDT] <Dennis> Too true, KK.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> I can understand that.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:46:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, Dennis! At least my hair is long; if I haven't trimmed it in a while, no one's apt to notice but me. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:47:25 PM EDT] <Laurna> But if ideas come up please jot them down for later. like 948 Laura grins
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:47:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I actually do need to trim it, though; the ends are getting a bit ratty.)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:47:46 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Well. WE would love it if you did some writing, KK... but we know you've had your hands full, lately
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:47:50 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> BRB changing DVD. No cable
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:48:11 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> My hair really needs a trim....But I'm not about to learn now
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:48:26 PM EDT] <Dennis> Now if only I could *sing* like David Crosby.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:48:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, yup, he's good.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:18 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Everyone. Sorry to be late
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:28 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:30 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Of all the weird things, *I* (gen X) had to explain "Southern Cross" to my (Baby Boomer) stepdad.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:46 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I'll have to check out Inspector Felse.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:51 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:49:54 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:00 PM EDT] <Dennis> That's hilarious, DR. You'd think he'd have ingested that like mother's milk.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:06 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> I made lasagne for dinner, so massive kitchen cleanup
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Right?!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:09 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi, Jerusha!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:26 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And he LIKES Crosby Stills and Nash (and Young, when he was singing with them); he just never knew what that song meant.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:42 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Yeah, that's an issue with Lasagna. You use a LOT of dishes, pots and pans for it
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> Mamma is snorring And I could not see the littlest puppy so I pushed a puppy aside and found him unneith the pile warm and happy
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:51 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Oh yeah
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:50:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But lasagna is yummy and it usually makes enough for several meals unless you're feeding the high school football/hockey team.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:16 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Oh definitely. But the prep is intensive
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Aw, sleepy warm cuddly puppies! <3
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:21 PM EDT] <KK> Odd Things Department: This morning I woke up with the Everly Brothers' "Devoted to you" in my head, earwig. It stuck until I googled the complete lyrics. That was junior high, I think. No idea what started that.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:21 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Got to watch out for the little guy, Laurna
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:38 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am doing that for sure
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:51:47 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I've been listening to the Everly Brothers a bit myself
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:52:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I made lasagna a while back. Still have about eight servings in the freezer, which makes it worth the hassle and mess. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:52:40 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Yep, I was planning on future leftovers
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:52:45 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's true, you get a lot of meals out of a pan of lasgana
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:52:58 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> And a lot of pans!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:53:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I made a BLT frittata the other night, leftovers of which were last night's and tonight's suppers. It's on the tea table if anyone wants some. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:53:18 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Sorry, too full.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:53:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's actually more BST; since lettuce doesn't really cook up worth a darn, the recipe subs spinach for the green. Still yummy, and a little extra nutrition.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:53:48 PM EDT] <KK> I cobbled together some pasta and a cut-up hamburger for supper, which I ate before coming to chat. Had saved half the pasta, but I'm feeling peckish; suspect the leftover pasta will not survive the night.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:12 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I liked the Everly Brothers' "Dream, Dream, Dream."

[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mother and I used to sing that; I'd take the melody and she'd sing the harmony part.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:42 PM EDT] <KK> Me too, Bee. That was the song I asked Cameron to have them play for our mother and son dance at his wedding.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:43 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Have been fighting the temptation to bake stuff
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:50 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Why am I getting a Mibbet ad
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:54:55 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> I do need to make cookies
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Probably because we lost BTE, DerynifanK.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:25 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> Hope we get him back
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:33 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I had to go to three different stores to find yeast two weeks ago. But now I have flour and yeast, so could make bread
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:48 PM EDT] <KK> I laid in a goodly supply of those mug cakes. Easy, peasy to put together, 70 sec. in the microwave, and you've got a tasty, warm snack, just the right size.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:51 PM EDT] <bynw> its not an ad really. it's just mibbit's default quit message
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:55:52 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Most of our store are out of sugar
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:56:13 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> stores, that is
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:56:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Speaking of wedding music, I did a 30-day song challenge meme on Facebook back around the new year, and one of the prompts was "a song you'd like played at your wedding." My mom commented with "Lean On Me," which, the more I think about it, is a PERFECT newlyweds'-first-dance song.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:56:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My freezer is mostly full, so meat is not a problem.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:56:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> My sister danced to Perfect

[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:57:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Quite a few singers are streaming on-line.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:57:54 PM EDT] <KK> I should have stocked up better on my last Costco run.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:58:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My brain went to "ceremony," not "reception," so my answer was "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring," but that's a time-honored processional. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:58:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Yes, the extra toilet paper would be a comfort
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:58:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not much of a dance-floor bop, though. ;)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:59:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> oopps Rain is starting. I need to go put the horses away. Be back in a little while
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:59:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Uh oh, take care of the horsies!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:59:32 PM EDT] <KK> Yes. I was checking my other bathrooms this morning, to see what I have stashed. At least I haven't started on my last 6-pack in the pantry.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [7:59:39 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My niece and her dad wedding-danced to "Daddy's Little Girl."

[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:00:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If I were to remarry and have a more-or-less traditional do, I'd choose "He Didn't Have To Be" for my stepdad and I to dance the father-daughter dance.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:00:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My landlord gave me a couple of rolls.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:00:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Even though that song is from a stepson's point of view, not a stepdaughter's. It's the right sentiment.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:00:51 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> That was nice, Bee
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:01 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Ta! No wifi, am surprised connection has been so good so far
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rehi BalanceTheEnergies.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:26 PM EDT] <Dennis> My mother-daughter dance was Let It Be. Care to guess what my Mom's name is?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:26 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I feel sorry for anyone who had a big wedding planned in Early April.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mary?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:39 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Bea?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:01:57 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Rita?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:02:09 PM EDT] <Dennis> DR wins the virtual cigar.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:02:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:02:22 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:02:42 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> There might not be any grand weddings for awhile
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:02:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Paul McCartney wrote that in his mother's memory.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:03:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> What makes me laugh is that's MY mom's ringtone on my phone, but her name isn't Mary; she's just had a crush on Paul McCartney since 1964.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:03:43 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Nothing wrong with that
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:03:44 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Nothing involving a crowd of people, for certain. And *&^%$, I was ONE WEEK AWAY from Seeing Hamilton in San Francisco.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:03:50 PM EDT] <Dennis> I know. I'm just glad my mother is alive to share it with me. I was not young when I got married, and my mother was not young when she started having kids.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:03:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> <3
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:04:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I doubt my mother will live to see me married (again), but that's because I don't anticipate remarrying, not any commentary on Mom's health or longevity.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:04:48 PM EDT] <KK> Even Princess Beatrice of England is having to adjust her wedding plans. They're now talking about a tiny one, only 6 people, and a reception bash when the coronavirus goes away.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:05:02 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> It's always important to marry the right person, for one thing
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:05:19 PM EDT] <KK> That's the most important.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:05:22 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I was supposed to go to the county Dem convention yesterday
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:05:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my SCA friends got married this afternoon in her backyard, because they'd been planning for 18 April and they had to use the marriage license or reapply later.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They live-streamed the ceremony on Facebook. They have a nice fire-pit in their back yard, and the weather was pretty decent today.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:10 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Perhaps large weddings will become a thing of the past
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:26 PM EDT] <Dennis> I'm glad the royals are being smart about this.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:34 PM EDT] <KK> Live-streaming does solve a multitude ot problkems, in these times.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:34 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Well....for the moment, they certainly will
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, marrying the right person is the big thing; the party and whatnot is VERY secondary.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:06:45 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Seriously? My city has extended licenses & tax payments-==]
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:13 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Wimsey says hello
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:29 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Whimsey
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Wimsey. Carys is in the pile of blanket-and-cardigan in the chair beside me, purring.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Where does Princess Beatrice fit in the royal family tree?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:35 PM EDT] <Dennis> Is Wimsey a pet, BTE?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:37 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hello Wimsey
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:41 PM EDT] <KK> And income tax returns and payments have been extended to July 15.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:54 PM EDT] <KK> She's Prince Andrew's daughter.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:07:57 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> He is a yellow-orange tabby cat
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's Prince Andrew's daughter (elder, I think), so Charles' niece and William's and Harry's first cousin.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:09 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Prince Andrew?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:15 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I have my tax appointment in April. I will just get it over with
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Charles' younger brother.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:22 PM EDT] <KK> Love orange cats, which is what Gus is.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:23 PM EDT] <Dennis> @The_Bee, she's Andrew's eldest doughter', so she's eighth to the throne, I think.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:40 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Tatiana is a little creamsicle orange girl
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:44 PM EDT] <KK> And there's a facebook page for orange cats that is kind of neat.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ginger kitties are wonderful.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:49 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Prince Andrew is a yellow tabby cat!!!?? D:
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:08:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:09:01 PM EDT] <Dennis> Then hello, Wimsey who I assume is a very lordly cat, even more lordly than most cats.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:09:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my friends adopted a ginger girl, or more accurately, got adopted by one.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:09:14 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> LOL. They've kept the secret admirably until now.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:09:28 PM EDT] <Dennis> Missy C. is about as gray as a gray cat can be.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:09:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Friend has, basically, the girl-kitty version of Cole and Marmalade.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:10:07 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Well, he does express so much affection I feel like Harriet Vane getting all those proposals
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:10:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> KK, have you seen the Earport group?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:10:24 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> LOL BTE
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:10:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://www.facebook.com/groups/1691116534325084/
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:11:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or, really, all the Rhemuth Castle citizens who like cats and are on Facebook. ;)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:11:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not just KK. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:11:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Outdoor critters are battened down for the night
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yay!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Safe warm horsies.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:11 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Happy critters, I hope
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> Happiely chowing down on alfalfa
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:41 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I refer to him as His Grace since Lord Peter Wimsey became the Duke of Denver in one of the sequels
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I hear tell that's a delicacy for horses. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:43 PM EDT] <Laurna> And the sprinkles are turning to rain
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:12:45 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Good for them
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:13:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or at least a food most horses like.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:13:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys' title is Her Serene Feline Majesty. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:13:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> That is there regular feed. But I did give them each a few scoops of pellets, that is their Delicacy.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:13:58 PM EDT] <KK> I will be joining Earport.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:14:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's fun, and cute, and the world can use that right now.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:14:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> IMO
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:14:49 PM EDT] <Eris> <derynifank> What is earport
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:14:58 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> I had to feed him. He's on the hobbit meal plan
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:15:17 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> What is earport?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:15:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> DerynifanK, it's a Facebook group for posting pictures of critters (mostly cats) with their ears down like airplane wings.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:15:25 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Ah.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:15:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Scroll up; I linked it.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:15:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hobbit meal plan?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:00 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> IF we were on Hobbit meal plans, we'd run out of food far too quickly
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, lunch, dinner, tea, and supper, I believe.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:25 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Oh my
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:30 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Glad I have an absolutely stupid amount of tea at home
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:32 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, supper
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:32 PM EDT] <Dennis> *I'm* on hobbit meal plans. They are small meals, though.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:50 PM EDT] <KK> Lots of tea here, too.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:16:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ah, I had tea and dinner backwards and luncheon abbreviated.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:08 PM EDT] <Dennis> Missy is the Mysterious Catface Jones and She Who Arises and Meows, among other titles.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Same here, loads of tea, both hot and iced varieties.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:32 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> And I bought a pound of coffee beans about a week before I realized how much time I'd be at home. Fortunately, I usually stick to just a cup of coffee at breakfast
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:42 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> The vet suggested small meals after his intestinal inflammation (hence his steroids & special dies)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ah, good idea.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:17:59 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> *diet
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:01 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have Carys' kibble broken down into four meals, because she has a tendency to eat too fast.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:24 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> I could survive without coffee, but NEVER without tea
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And since I'm home most of the time anyway, it's no big thing to split her food up.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> We may all be on the Hobbit meal plan if we stay home to long
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Amen to that, Shiral! I like coffee, but I cannot do without tea.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:18:56 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Melantha has a habit of leaving food in her dish until the wet food dries out.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:20 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Cat meals last about 5 minutes, around here.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:22 PM EDT] <Dennis> Laurna How many meals do you get out of a hobbit?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:30 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:37 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Snack
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ack! No eating Hobbitses!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Two if it's a very fat hobbit
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:19:53 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> No you can't eat Bilbo!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:44 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Hobbit Lasagna?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> NOOOOO!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:53 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL I ment Breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, supper NOT eating HOBBIT
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:56 PM EDT] <KK> Gus does not like the canned food I have on hand. Booker may end up with it. However, Gus does like the specialty wet foods that come in tiny cans and packets. Since he's an only cat now, I try to indulge him from time to time. But the wet food that he doesn't like gets left in the dish and dries out, and Booker ends up wtih it. Great little plate cleaner, that Booker.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:57 PM EDT] <Dennis> Is it crunchable, precious?
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:20:57 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:21:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Dogs are good for that.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:21:43 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, they'll eat almost anything. and many thinsg they shouldn't.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:21:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Every time my mom drops food while she's cooking, she laments that she doesn't have a dog (and hasn't in about forty years, either).
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:21:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> My cat seems to think she needs to help feed the puppies. she had brought in three mice in the last two days
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:21:53 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> My sister's late dog Cosmo would go after anything you left unguarded on the counter
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:22:12 PM EDT] <KK> Maybe the mice are for Mama cat.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:22:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mama dog is part of the cat's colony, so of course Cat is going to help feed Mama's babies. It's what colony-mates do.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:22:28 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> I suppose it's the thought that counts
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:22:36 PM EDT] <Laurna> RIGHT
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:23:39 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> I do miss dogs that clean up the crumbs under the dinner table
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Makes it easier to clean the floors. :)
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:17 PM EDT] <Laurna> Jerusha, let me know in 12 weeks if you want a Cavalier. LOL
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:17 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> His Grace is on my chest a lot. I think he can tell I'm upset
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:17 PM EDT] <KK> LOL. And on that note, I hear a bowl of pasta calling me from the fridge, and it's tiring, hanging out at home and unable to go out wisely. See you all next week, same bat time, same bat station. And everyone, stay healthy!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:44 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> I took it for granted; suddenly, Eww! I have to vacuum
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, thanks for coming to see us, KK! Have a good week, stay healthy, and (wrong book series but) may the odds be ever in your favor going grocery shopping!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:47 PM EDT] <BalanceTheEnergies> Good night KK take care!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:52 PM EDT] <Laurna> Enjoy your dinner KK
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:24:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I read a story on-line about a cat whose kittens died; so she kidnapped some puppies whose mom was not feeling motherly.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:18 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> Have a good week, KK
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Bye KK, Eat well. Thanks for coming.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:39 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower green sparkles. See you all next week, same bat time, same bat channel. And stay healthy, all of you!
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:52 PM EDT] <Eris> <Jerusha> You too, KK
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:56 PM EDT] <Laurna> Agreed to that
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:25:58 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> BYe, KK
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:26:03 PM EDT] <Eris> <Shiral> Have a good week
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:26:07 PM EDT] <KK> BYe.
[Sunday, March 22, 2020] [8:26:14 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.)
