Re: The Rumpus Room


Ah, sounds like what we've got is heading your way, Birdz. The first snowplow has FINALLY hit our neighborhood! It's a full-sized plow with the salt/sand truck, and it's struggling a bit. Backs up a little and then guns it forward again. I suspect it's wet and heavy because it stayed close to 30 all day long. Shouldn't have waited so long....

Hooray for one spoilt cat! emoticon

My supper consisted of... (close your eyes, Robbie) a nuked bag of cauliflower.

Lis, trying hard

Re: The Rumpus Room


In the province I lived in in Argentina, there’s been an outbreak of hantavirus. 28 cases, 9 deaths so far. The outbreak is on the western side of the province, by the Andes Mountains. I lived in the eastern coastal area.

Not linking to the story because it’s in Spanish.

LOL, Robbie, I'm trying to be good and get some more of this weight off like Cooter did....

Wow, Birdz.... I'm so sorry to hear that!

I had to go look up hantavirus. Pulmonary. That sounds ugly.

Thanks for the pictures, Lis! I love snow.

46 this morning. Calm and cold and starry out. With all the leaves gone from the deciduous trees, I can see more stars.

I hope you all have weathered the storms and cold overnight.

It looks like another football Sunday as another season comes to an end. I’m looking forward to both games today, pulling for the Chargers and the Saints.

Good luck, Cooter.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Beautiful morning - clear skies and the sun is coming up. OTOH, it's minus 4 outside (minus 13 with the wind). At least I don't have any apartment showings scheduled for today. I spent a chunk of yesterday waiting for folks to show up so I could let them see a unit that's opening up in March.

Mrs. Streamline has already headed out to her jazzercise class and I'm going to the gym in a half hour. After that, who knows? It's too cold to do much outside, so we'll probably go out to brunch and then come home to cook something complicated for dinner. You know, a dish that requires hours of preparation and dirties every pot and pan in the house. The dog is lying in front of the fire and stubbornly refusing to go outside. We are in full hibernation mode.

Hah! The biggest thrill around here at this time of year is taking the first step outside in the morning.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all. We have 29F and clear skies -- like Belle, I can see zillions of stars -- heading for sunshine and 56F. Lovely!

The only football game I really care about this weekend is the Eagles vs the Saints, which kicks off at 1:40 Pacific Time. My congresscritter is holding a town meeting starting at 1:00, and I'd like to attend it. What to do, what to do...

Drink coffee, that's what to do. Tanya!

Re: The Rumpus Room


The Eagles v. Saints game should be a lot of fun, Robbie. I'm going to try to sneak in at least part of both games. I hope at least one of them is close.

Now, as to the Town Meeting with your Rep - do you plan on giving Rick an earful? He seems like one of the better behaved members of the House.

Buon giorno!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's 41 with clouds and this will probably be about our high.

Thanks for the good wishes for the ballgame. The Eagles are playing really well and the Saints offense is stuck in neutral. Fortunately, the Saints defense is playing really well.

I am considering etouffee for supper. I've got shrimp and crab and it doesn't require completely messing up my kitchen.

No, I approve of what stands Rick is taking on things. I would plan to give him an attaboy.

Rick is good on most things, but he won't oppose the Growlers that fly over my house and over much of north and central Whidbey, deafening us and giving some of us other health problems. I have written to him several times. He finally got tired of me and ignored me, as he ignores the environmentalists on the island who try to enlist him to get rid of this menace. It is wrong for military planes to fly low over the houses and schools and parks of civilians. Unfortunately, the people who make the rules don't live under the planes.
