Celebrating 10 years of marriage to @RLWorthington today. By "celebrating" I mean "thankful she hasn't come to her senses yet"
Don't sell yourself short. You're a prize catch! xx - Melly - #TeamMarina
Congratulations! - LB: Water Witch from Android
Happy Anniversary! - Anne Bouey from iPhone

Last night our youngest told us she had learned about words that sound like what they describe: onomatopoeia. I was rather surprised, since she is just 6 and I didn't learn that concept or word until I was nearly 12.
My wife, not having English as her first language, initially thought she'd made this up. :p - Big Joe Silence from Android
I always spelled it like this: Onomatopoeia - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
*writes this down* - Big Joe Silence
Too bad it's not easier to spell. It's a cool word though! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
When your wife sees the word spelled out she'll know for sure that you made it up. :-) - bentley
i can claim that it's some obscure Saxon curse word. - Big Joe Silence
The grand daddy of all that is discussed here: http://www.brendanhughes.com/the-thi... - Iain Baker
"Quadrupedante putrem sonitu quatit ungula campum or “The horses’ hooves with four-fold beat did shake the crumbling plain.” Now, say the Latin out loud (Latin is kind of like Spanish, you pronounce it how it’s spelled… so just sound it out… Oh, and there’s a hard G in “ungula”). Repeat it a couple of times until you can say it well and at an even pace. Do you hear them? Say it in a James Earl Jones voice. Hear them now? It’s the horses hooves on the plain!" - Iain Baker
That's perfect, Iain! - Anne Bouey
Iain wins! - Big Joe Silence

It seems awesome, but then a friend posted this commentary which gave me pause http://msmagazine.com/blog... - Laura Norvig
Thanks for linking the commentary, Laura. - Anne Bouey
The video is disgusting. All of it. I stand, however, fully behind the commentary. As for the comment on the commentary -yes, we should talk to children about sexual assault and rape. It is, however, very important HOW we talk to them about it. THIS video and what led up to it - that is definitely not the way. - Uli
When I was watching it, I thought, "wow, this is a pretty powerful way to make a statement," and I was expecting a very strong, clear, call to action at the end to do something to help prevent rape culture. When I didn't get that, I was very disappointed. - Laura Norvig

Denver Broncos Safety Headbutts Cab Driver, Gets Cut By Team
"Denver Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was cut today after a Wednesday morning incident involving a scuffle with a cab driver. According to Denver police, Boyett, who was intoxicated at the time, punched and head-butted a cab driver before stealing a shovel from a nearby construction site and trying to bury himself in mulch. Killer hiding spot, dude. Based on the story from the Denver Post, Boyett comes off as a tad unhinged. After being arrested by the cops, Boyett "told arresting officers to 'contact his boss 'John Elway'' before repeatedly slamming his head into a patrol car window while yelling and spitting". Wow." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"trying to bury himself in mulch" ... ??? - Andrew C (✔)
I am sure some other team will pick him up for their practice squad. - Joe

5 Bay Area restaurants taking tips off table, adding surcharge - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea...
5 Bay Area restaurants taking tips off table, adding surcharge - SFGate
"Call it the tipping point. Thanks to widening staff salary discrepancies and increasing minimum wage requirements, local restaurants are taking tips off the table — literally. Citing both pragmatic and philosophical reasons, a small collection of Bay Area restaurateurs is eliminating tipping. Instead of expecting diners to leave a tip, the restaurants will automatically add a 20 percent service charge to all bills — and not accept any additional gratuity beyond the service charge. The five businesses — Comal in Berkeley, Camino and Duende in Oakland, and Bar Agricole and Trou Normand in San Francisco — each plan to institute the policy within the next few weeks, forsaking the ubiquitous model they believe is outdated. And they expect more restaurants could follow suit. “If we were doing this, and there was a sense that the rest of the world wouldn’t pay much mind to it, I would be more concerned. But this is on everybody’s minds,” said Comal partner John Paluska. Rather than relying... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
'The timing of this overhaul is largely motivated by increased state and local minimum wage levels. Restaurants often operate on thin margins, so higher wages quickly impact profitability. As opposed to tips, a service charge becomes part of the restaurant’s overall revenue. The restaurateurs say the service charge component will be used exclusively for employee wages, benefits and... more... - Anne Bouey
"Chez Panisse’s influence is paramount, as is Jay Porter’s, the owner of Half Orange in Oakland. Porter plans to open a second Oakland restaurant in early 2015, named Salsipuedes, but he previously owned a tipless restaurant in San Diego. He documented the entire experiment, from finances to critical reviews. “One person in 1,000, or in 10,000,” would get upset about the fixed service... more... - Anne Bouey
"To ensure that there is no confusion with guests, servers at the restaurants will explain the new policy before the meal. When the bill comes, 20 percent service charge will automatically be tallied, as will tax. There will be no line for a further tip. “We have philosophically been wanting to get rid of tipping for a long time. Now, if there’s ever a time, this is the time,” Moore said. “We’re happy to take away that weird feeling at the end of the meal.” - Anne Bouey

Show all
"Staff, dressed in red rain ponchos, marked the launch of the Royal British Legion's Gloucestershire poppy appeal by forming the 38m (125ft) poppy. The 1,308 civilian staff were joined by black-uniformed Royal Navy personnel, who made up the centre of the poppy, and military personnel who created the 28m-long (92ft)stalk. A GCHQ spokesperson said: "Thanks to military planning and some loud hailers, it took just over an hour to get everyone into position."

Cigarette maker Reynolds to snuff out workplace smoking - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/busines...
"Camel cigarette maker Reynolds American Inc. is snuffing out smoking in its offices and buildings. The nation’s second-biggest tobacco company informed employees Wednesday that beginning next year, the use of traditional cigarettes, cigars or pipes will no longer be permitted at desks or in offices, conference rooms, hallways and elevators. Lighting up already is prohibited on factory floors and in cafeterias and fitness centers. The no-smoking policy will go into effect once Reynolds builds indoor smoking areas for those still wanting to light up indoors, spokesman David Howard said. “We believe it’s the right thing to do and the right time to do it because updating our tobacco use policies will better accommodate both nonsmokers and smokers who work in and visit our facilities,” Howard said. “We’re just better aligning our tobacco use policies with the realities of what you’re seeing in society today.” While Reynolds will no longer allow smoking, it will allow the use of smokeless... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"The company also will allow the use of Eclipse, a cigarette made by Reynolds that uses a carbon tip that heats tobacco after being lit by a lighter. First released in the mid-1990s, Eclipse is in limited distribution and one of the top-selling brands in the cafeteria at the company’s Winston-Salem, N.C., headquarters. The percentage of Reynolds’ 5,200 employees that smoke is in line... more... - Anne Bouey

Tourists allow boy to urinate in busy eatery - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"A family of Chinese tourists, who it is said came to Taiwan as part of a tour with a substantially higher price tag than is typical for tour groups from China, stunned staff and customers in the world-renowned Din Tai Fung dumpling restaurant by allowing a three-year-old boy to urinate in a bottle while the parents were eating at a table, the Chinese-language Apple Daily reported. The toddler was part of a family of five tourists dining in the Michelin-starred Din Tai Fung restaurant in Taipei 101 on Oct. 2, and urinated in a plastic bottle instead of going to a restroom that was 100m from where the family were eating. The urine splashed on food the family had bought, so they tried to get it replaced for free, but were rejected, the report said." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The group eventually paid for a new round of dishes, but reportedly complained about the extra money they had to spend “while already paying that much for the tour.” It was said that the scene had dumbfounded customers at neighboring tables and the smell had lingered long enough to take away their appetite." - Jessie
"The incident was confirmed by the restaurant’s public relations manager, who said the area was cleaned and disinfected after the group had left the restaurant. The restaurant, the manager said, had also had an internal discussion over the case and resolved that in the future “[any similar behavior] would be stopped as soon as possible,” the report said." - Jessie

50 Books Every Parent Should Read to Their Child – Flavorwire
"According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children in the UK do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents. So, from the peanut gallery of those who loved being read to (and still wouldn’t say no to a bedtime story): 50 books that every parent should read to their child. For the purposes of this list, we’re only considering books aimed primarily at children under 10 (according to the School Library Journal), which means you won’t find outstanding children’s chapter books like The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time, Patricia C. Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles, or C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia here, nor will you find mention of your favorite bespectacled wizard — the idea being that these are books kids are... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

I'd add "Library Lion" by Michelle Knudsen. (Here's a version being read: http://www.storylineonline.net/library...) - Stephen Mack

My project manager bought assorted chili peppers at a market at lunch today. As the afternoon wore on he gave in to temptation and sampled a few. The first was a Padron; reasonably hot according to him. The second was a Christmas Bell; quite sweet apparently.
The third was a Scotch Bonnet. Only it wasn't a Scotch Bonnet. It turned out to be a Habanero. The result was swollen, very red lips and quite a speech impediment which caused quite a lot of amusement. - Mark H
He then decided to go to the toilet. I warned him to be careful what he touched before he went, he nodded, mumbled something, and left. When he returned he looked in pain. Apparently, despite washing his hands twice before venturing into the cubicle... he didn't quite get it all off. The descriptions over the next few minutes went from "tingling" to "a bit uncomfortable" to "this is really quite burny now." - Mark H
Last week this same project manager bought some Naga peppers and persuaded his project coordinator to eat one. This led to extreme sweating, tears, much moaning, vomiting, and curling up in a ball at his home that evening for several hours, plus all the associated pain that comes with post-chili evacuations you hear about. - Mark H
Personally, I hate chili and can't understand why anyone would want to eat anything that hurts. - Mark H
I totally agree with you,food is to enjoy not to be in pain. - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Peppers are delicious in most cases and I love spicy food, but if you're in pain there's no point in eating it. - Anika
I thought Scotch Bonnet was just another name for habañero peppers. Poor guy! I've heard the theory is that serious pepper addicts are in it for the pain - the body sends out substances in reaction to the pain and it's those they get addicted to. https://www.drugs-forum.com/forum... - Spidra Webster
:( - Anne Bouey
I love peppers, but yeah if I find myself curling up in a ball, then no way, but I've never had them that bad. fwiw fyi, wear gloves when chopping peppers if you wear contacts and I'm speaking from personal experience. - Halil
Dish soap works better than hand soap at removing hot chili oils from your skin. Rubbing alcohol, even high proof vodka in a pinch, can help too. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
and use cold water not hot, hot water just cooks the oils into your skin, same goes for washing fishy hands - Halil
What Anika said. I get tingly fingers a lot from chopping peppers. Unfortunately, I have a pesky habit of rubbing my eyes after chopping said peppers. >.< - Jenny H. from Android

Polar bear scare ruins Halloween for kids in Nunavut village | Weird | News | To
"Children in Arviat, Nunavut, won't be going door to door seeking out treats this Halloween. Instead, the hamlet will host an event at the community hall because of the threat of polar bears in the area. "Council is concerned with door-to-door trick-or-treating due to this activity going on at the same time that polar bears are in and around our community," the hamlet council said on Facebook. The council said a clear majority of people like the idea of doing an indoor event, although some people on the Facebook page described the idea as "boring" or a break in tradition. "If parents want their kids to be safe they should be willing to look out for bears. If there is a bear, shoot it. I think Halloween would not be the same if kids don't go trick-or-treating," Agaaqtoq Eetak wrote." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
I'm going to hazard a guess that Halloween won't be the same if it's punctuated by your parents shooting at bears and running for your life, either. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!

This morning I looked at a shabby 4plex near my current neighborhood. Only the outside. The grounds are pretty filthy, there are kids toys outside the 3 occupied units, and this tells me the current tenants probably aren't great neighbors.

Left a msg at the leasing office for the W Oakland one. I haven't lived in anything larger than a 4plex since the 80s. But I've also never lived anywhere newer than a maybe 30 year old building. These are less than 8 years old, and supposedly built green. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Sounds promising. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. ♡ - Anne Bouey
