#SaturdayFF tomorrow I will have to socialize at multiple Super Bowl parties. Not thrilled about it, but I need to socialize. I find it helps.
What is it you're not thrilled about? The people, the sport, something else? - Mark H
The "how are you doing" stuff. - Mike Nencetti
Well, "My wife's ashes are on a shelf. not sure where I am taking them" no I'll just says i'm good. - Mike Nencetti
It's almost a social norm now. - Mark H
If you say "I'm good" ppl are then free to imagine where you are on a sliding scale of their own experience. Getting out and about is a good idea, and maybe all the talk of the sporting event will take the pressure off you. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
The answer the people should hear is simply, "day by day". The people care. - Janet from FFHound!
^ - Marie
Mike, you don't have to decide to do anything with her ashes if you don't want to, or if you are not ready to. It's been 20 years and I still have my brother's ashes in the cabinet next to my bed. - April Russo
Thanks everyone. If I have not mentioned I am taking advantage of free counseling offered by Hospice. I go once a week. one on one session. - Mike Nencetti
That's great. - bentley
I survived both super bowl parties. - Mike Nencetti

Glad you made it through okay. :) - Anne Bouey

Songwriter, Poet Rod McKuen Dies At 81 : The Two-Way : NPR -
Songwriter, Poet Rod McKuen Dies At 81 : The Two-Way : NPR
"The obituary in The Los Angeles Times describes Rod McKuen as "prolific" and that may well be an understatement considering the many compositions he churned out. McKuen is credited with more than 200 albums and more than 30 collections of poetry. His work included the Academy Award-nominated song "Jean" from the 1969 film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, and McKuen's music for the animated feature "A Boy Named Charlie Brown" was also nominated for an Oscar. The Los Angeles Times writes: Among McKuen's commercial success in the 1960s and '70s were his reworking of Jacques Brel's song "Le Moribond" for the English-language version of "Seasons in the Sun," which was later covered by the Kingston Trio and Terry Jacks. Frank Sinatra recorded an album of McKuen songs in 1969 called "A Man Alone," which included "Love's Been Good to Me." For as much as McKuen seemed to be loved by the general public, that was not the case with critics. The New York Times writes: "For a generation of Americans... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

If Obituaries of Male Authors Were Like The Australian's Obituary of Colleen McCullough
Show all
"The Australian's bizarre obituary of bestselling novelist Colleen McCullough has received international attention for its sexist second sentence: "Plain of feature and certainly overweight, she was, nevertheless, a woman of wit and warmth."  McCullough's The Thorn Birds sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making her the most successful author in Australian literature.  So for your pleasure I have written a few other obituaries in the style of The Australian." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
JRR Tolkien London, Sept. 2 Tolkien looked out at the world from eyes that were set very deep in his head. Even though the skin beneath those eyes was baggy and he wore too much tweed, the public was enthusiastic for "The Lord of the Rings." The author and linguist was 81 years old... - Anne Bouey

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Moscow, August 3 He wore a beard like Abraham Lincoln except without the mustache, then grew in the mustache in an attempt to compensate for the lost follicles of a receding hairline. None of it quite worked as a fashion statement. Nonetheless, Solzhenitsyn did more than any other to raise international awareness of abuses in Soviet labor camps... - Anne Bouey

I sorta give the Elsa one the side-eye, because I've got two different friends with her white-blonde hair color -- no roots, but the Pocahontas one cracks me up every time. - Jennifer Dittrich
Elsa has naturally white-blonde hair, so I think they're stretching for that one. Ariel and Pocahontas are like expectation vs reality. - Heather
With Elsa, I wish they'd show a bunch of hair just not in the braid since it isn't secured or anything. I mean, my hair pokes out of braids even when it /is/ secured. - Jennifer Dittrich
Immigrant spouses happy with life in Taiwan: poll - Taipei Times -
"Immigrants married to Taiwanese nationals are mostly happy with life in Taiwan, even though their average household income is less than half the national average, to a census released yesterday by the Ministry of the Interior showed. A total of 498,368 foreign-born spouses, including naturalized immigrants and foreign nationals, call Taiwan home. At 67.6 percent, more than two-thirds come from China, Hong Kong or Macau; another 28.1 percent are from Southeast Asia, predominantly Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Cambodia, according to ministry statistics. In the once-in-five years census of foreign-born spouses, 92.9 percent of respondents described life in their adoptive country as “happy” (幸福), and 87 percent said they do not have trouble communicating with their Taiwanese family members despite cultural and linguistic barriers. The survey found that the average monthly household income in families with new immigrants was NT$46,173, less than half the national average of NT$98,073." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

We are invited to a Super Bowl get together. We were very gung-ho until someone pointed out that the game doesn't start till 8pm. The get together is an hour away ...we'd have to leave at 8 to be home by bedtime :-) #oldpeopleproblem
:( - Anne Bouey
8pm? I thought kickoff was at 3:30pm PST? That puts it at 6:30pm your time. Not that that helps much. It is a late start to a party for y'all and with that drive? Ooof. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Hmmm ... perhaps I was misinformed. I didn't actually check it myself, perhaps I should. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yeah, looks like kick-off is supposed to be 6:30 p.m. EST. That said, with the huge halftime show, etc., the game probably won't be over until ~11 or so. Halftime might be a good time for you to leave the shindig. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Especially since halftime is Katy Perry. So, y'know. Save yourself while you can! - Hookuh Tinypants

The Man in the High Castle 1 Season 2015 -
powerful stuff - Todd Hoff
"Based on Philip K. Dick's award-winning novel, and executive produced by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), The Man in the High Castle explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States. Starring Rufus Sewell (John Adams), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars) and Alexa Davalos (Mob City). - Todd Hoff
I need to watch this. - Stephen Mack
I watched the pilot and quite liked it. I'd not heard of the novel until I saw something about this, and now I want to read it. - ellbeecee
I watched the pilot and liked it... and then had horrendous nightmares. - maʀtha
We'll definitely watch it; we both loved the book. - Jenny H. from Android
I watched it a few nights ago. I'm eagerly awaiting the next episode. - Anne Bouey
When do we get more? - Eivind
You need to vote on Amazon to convince them to choose this show. What we saw was the pilot for a proposed series. - Anne Bouey
I took the survey, I hope they choose this one! - Jenny H.
I took it, too. I even indicated I might be willing to join Prime if they make this happen :) - Eivind
ADDED. really liked the book (sometime in the late 80s?) and am curious how Scott translates it to the screen. - Big Joe Silence
You know, I haven't read the book. I'll have to correct that. - Todd Hoff

I can tell my ear is getting better, but every time I put drops in my ear (twice a day) there's a period of time when I can't hear out of it. It's soooo annoying! Plus the ringing. I'm going mad!!

Oops! Forgot to put drops in this morning! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Tamara J. B.
Yessss! We broke $100,000 for her last hospital stay. *cries and rolls eyes* It's highway robbery, I tell you.
2015-01-14 17.42.31.jpg
Holy shit. In a country with socialised health care, this is unfathomable to me. - Melly
It's unfathomable to me too. When we pay $1,000 a month for insurance, seeing large bills like this, even though we'll only have to pay 20% is still outrageous. Who needs a mortgage, when you have hospital bills!?! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
So you owe 20% of $100k?? :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yeah but just tack that on to the portion of the other hospital stays and endless co-pays. It's all too overwhelming but what can you do? I'm too busy dealing with her health on a daily basis to process it all. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

My friend who took Daisy has an upstairs neighbor who's living there on false pretenses under her mother's section 8. The owner has conflict with her, the other tenants don't like her. Andrea thinks she will be put out soon and is telling the owner wonderful things about me :-)

OMG, Yes, Yes, Yes ... praying for you ... does the owner know about these false pretenses? (Not suggesting the bad karma of ratting someone out but honestly, she is taking spots away from awesome families like yours.) - Laura Norvig
I'm not sure what he knows of it but I have a feeling Andrea is ready to snitch lol. I agree that it isn't fair when I've complied with everything required of me while this chick & her mom are getting over. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Haggis ice cream on menu as cafe honours Burns - The Scotsman
"A SCOTTISH restaurant is set to serve Haggis flavoured ice cream in memory of Robert Burns, it was revealed today. Award-winning St Andrews restaurant, The Adamson, is staging a Ladies charity night on January 22 with a three course Scottish menu inspired by the works of Scotland’s greatest poet. The menu described as “Scottish prose on a plate” by the restaurant’s head chef, Scott Davies, includes a variety of haggis dishes - including Mr Davies very own ‘Haggis Spiced Ice Cream’. Mr Davies said: “Burns loved his food and drink - and our Ladies Night is a tribute to the man, his works and his life’s passions.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The bard and haggis have been linked since Burns composed ‘Address to a Haggis’, and the poem is now read out at Burns Suppers around the world on January 25th." - Jessie
I wonder if anyone will attend. ;-P - Anne Bouey
