Thanks everyone. I had been forgetting to use Twitter, so I thought I would leave the link as my last tweet for a while. Forgot it would filter here. Been busy managing the hotel/ restaurant/ zoo that is our home. Her condition is changing slowly, vitals are good. I'm good. - Mike Nencetti
Still thinking of you both. Hope your weekend is going well ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

When I saw the cocktail menu, I couldn't *not* order the Ichabod Crane.
Scotch, pumpkin puree, lemon and cinnamon syrup. - Jessie
How was it? - Anne Bouey from iPhone
As delicious as he is. :D - Jessie
Ooh! - Katy S
I don't know what the star thing floating in the cocktail was, but it smelled great. Might have been nutmeg? - Jessie
Oh that might have been it. It wasn't on the ingredient list so I figured it must be some type of garnish. - Jessie

Just had a mild earthquake (3.1). Hope that's it for this round.
That was the third one and strongest today. - Anne Bouey
Yikes. Thanksgiving would be terrible timing for a big one. I hope that's it for today, too! - Spidra Webster
Didn't feel nuthin here - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Centered 3 mi from Yountville. - Spidra Webster
I hope this is a single event. - Janet
Yikes! Didn't feel anything here, though. Unsure if cats acting weird because of earthquake activity or because they're cats. - vicster: hon. canadian

"Tens of thousands of San Francisco commuters have probably taken a few moments to ponder this simple statement, which has been posted near the operator’s station of every Muni bus and streetcar since the early 1960s. The message is simultaneously friendly and forbidding, inviting yet indifferent, personable yet coldly professional." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
in Rome you can't speak to the driver, but nobody cares about that rule :) - van der Baarft
The tee shirt just made me laugh. But I do remember that warning on the SF busses. - Anne Bouey
I need that on a huge sign in my cube at work. And in every meeting room ... - Laura Norvig
It reminds me of a Reader's Digest anecdote I read years ago. A tourist in Italy, who knew some Italian, stopped to read a very wordy sign on a bus near the door, something about not blocking the exits. The conductor yelled at her for blocking the exit. - bentley
Laura, I know a number of people who would love to wear this tee shirt all the time! - Anne Bouey
Just put it up in my cube. - Laura Norvig

I am 140 Mercury years old today, and you guys are the only people I can think of to tell about it. I'm pretty excited! It feels cooler than knowing my age in earth years. I'm glad Mathaversaries exists!
Happy Mercury Day! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Thanks :) - Lo
Happy Birthday, Lo! - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
Happy Mercury Birthday, Lo! - Anne Bouey
I am now insisting my husband show me respect as his elder :P He's being awesome and totally playing along. Random fun fact: a day on Mercury lasts two years! It goes around the sun quickly but rotates very slowly. A day on Mercury is 176 Earth days. If I lived there, I might actually wash dishes every day! - Lo

Happy birthday, Sparky! Go go go you Ironman you.

I'm so sad right now. It's almost 2am in NJ. I got here about 2 hours ago and I already miss my kids terribly. Also, my dear friend's daughter is sick which I feel very deeply and am helpless to do anything about it. And another thing that I can't share yet weighs on me, too. I'm hoping a good night's sleep makes me feel a tiny bit better. :-(
Sleep well, and feel better tomorrow - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
Get a good night's sleep. - Anne Bouey
Be well - WarLord
Be good to yourself. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I hope you were able to get a good night's sleep and that it was beneficial. *hugs* - vicster: hon. canadian
Hugs - Janet from FFHound!
I'm pretty certain I got almost 7 hours of sleep! Now to race around and buy last minute items I didn't want to pack. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Eh, make that 6 hours including a whole lotta restlessness. (It's a bit cold here.) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I'm sorry for the homesickness and for the undisclosed thing that's weighing on you. *hugs* - Stephen Mack

So I just realized that the animal decal on Karina's wall that I've been telling her is a hippo is actually a rhino. #parentfail
That's three years of therapy right there for Karina. - Steve C Team Marina
And then when her teacher calls to tell you of her inexplicable inability to recognize a hippo..... - WarLord
This is like the adoptive dad who assumed his ethnic Korean kid was Chinese all over again! - Andrew C (✔)
That's ok, There was this big glass cookie jar than nobody in the family could identify what animal it was supposed to be, for almost four decades. There was disagreement over whether it was an elephant (based on its feet and tail) or a pig (based on it's face) or some sort of freakishly weird combo animal (which was the most acceptable answer). It wasn't until it was finally passed down to me that I got a chance to see it again, and figured out it was a hippo. - April Russo
Can we see a pic of this rhino so we know how much to mock you? - SAM
^ That. - Kristin
It's a rhino who lost his horn in an unfortunate poaching incident but lived to tell the tale. - Melly Claus
April, that sounds a bit like the wildebeest (gnu) that legend says was made from leftover parts: the head of a warthog, the stripes of a zebra, the horns and neck of a buffalo, the body of a cow, and the mane and tail of a lion. - Anne Bouey
Actually, it just looks like a pig with elephant feet. - April Russo
It's clearly got a horn, but I'm usually looking at it in semi-darkness before we've turned on the lights in her room. I didn't notice the horn until recently, and she knows hippos from "But Not the Hippopotamus" so I just kind of starting pointing it out to her as a hippo without really looking at it. - Jandy

Realtor called to tell me the property has a buyer, who plans to stucco the house and wants me to stay. More than two weeks after the deadline. Maria said she'd tried to contact the housing authority but they're notorious for not returning calls or emails, so I'm going to their office this morning see if this is doable.
Nervous about getting hopes up because the last few months have been full of letdowns. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That would be great and I hope the housing authority let's it work out. All available fingers are crossed. - bentley
Oh! I hope it works out! Fingers crossed here, too! - Yvonne Renee
I hope it works out! - John (bird whisperer)

Thank you my loves! At the very least, I can stop obsessing over time running out. Whether I'll be here in the spring, or next year, is up to the new owner and how long it takes him to fix the exterior. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
So, a trip well made. & since I was in that part of town, I stopped at Honeybaked & got me a big bag of ham bones so my side dishes will be on fleek this winter. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Big blaze at Holy Cross Church destroys a beloved structure in San Jose - San Jose Mercury News
"SAN JOSE -- Holy Cross Catholic Church, a century old center of a beloved parish, where mass was still recited in the Italian language, burned down Sunday afternoon. The cause of the four alarm blaze, said officials, was not known. However, it did move rapidly up to the second floor and then to the roof. Devouring the heavy timbers that constructed the building, the fire eventually engulfed the roof and soon it collapsed. The fire destroyed a beautiful dome structure the church was known for and the parish also lost gorgeous, old paintings and a rare crucifix that was dear to the many parishioners." - Me from Bookmarklet

France: Big Cat on the Prowl Is Not a Tiger - ABC News -
France: Big Cat on the Prowl Is Not a Tiger - ABC News
"A big, wild cat eluding 200 police and military forces near Disneyland Paris is not a tiger, French authorities said Friday — but they don't know exactly what it is. The creature popped up near a supermarket, crossed a major highway, slinked past a gas station, and sent regional officials into high alert. The administration for the Seine-et-Marne region had announced Thursday that authorities were searching for a tiger on the loose. But in a statement Friday afternoon, the administration said "the presence of an animal of the tiger species has proven to be excluded." The statement was based on analysis by government wild animal experts of the animal's tracks. It said the animal is a feline but they are still trying to determine its species. The hunting office could not be reached for comment. The animal's origins remain a mystery." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Gu (poison) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Gu (simplified Chinese: 蛊; traditional Chinese: 蠱; pinyin: gǔ; Wade–Giles: ku) or jincan (simplified Chinese: 金蚕; traditional Chinese: 金蠶; pinyin: jīncán; Wade–Giles: chin-ts'an; lit. "gold silkworm") was a venom-based poison associated with cultures of south China, particularly Nanyue. The traditional preparation of gu poison involved sealing several venomous creatures (e.g., centipede, snake, scorpion) inside a closed container, where they devoured one another and allegedly concentrated their toxins into a single survivor. Gu was used in black magic practices such as manipulating sexual partners, creating malignant diseases, and causing death. According to Chinese folklore, a gu spirit could transform into various animals, typically a worm, caterpillar, snake, frog, dog, or pig." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Jincan 金蠶 "gold silkworm/caterpillar" is a gu synonym first recorded in the Tang Dynasty. Li Xian's (7th century) commentary to the Hou Han Shu uses jincan as the name of a funerary decoration cast from gold, and the (9th century) author Su E 蘇鶚 describes it as a legendary golden-color caterpillar from Kashmir.

LOL Yes, I'm two weeks behind. :-P I had to ask Dominic about this because they're pronouncing it wrong on the show so I couldn't look up the pinyin. The 'c' in 'jincan' is actually a 'ts' sound so it's more like "JEEN-tsan" in Mandarin. - Jessie

"The food and beverage corporation, which owns both the Mountain Dew and Dorito brands, confirmed to Quartz this afternoon that it's indeed testing a "Doritos-inspired flavor" of Dew. Thus far, "Dewitos" (which is plural for some reason) is only available at select colleges and universities, where one Redditor says he got a sneak peek of the drink: "It honestly wasn't that disgusting," the drinker reports.

So far I haven't taken any photos since 5 kids are keeping us on our toes. Luke I suspect is not asleep downstairs. Guess I won't stay up reading after all. :-/ - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

My birthday is this month and I admit it, I kinda love my birthday...always have. Unfortunately I am not surrounded by like minded people. MAN isn't into such things and to top it off since I met him 14 years ago the week around my birthday has always been his (he attends an annual LARP and has since long before he met me). My mom is pressing me ideas. Here they are: - Shannon - GlassMistress
I want a cake ... Cupcake would do. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I want a gift wrapped in wrapping paper instead of a Home Depot bag. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd like a day off ... Totally off. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd like some time with MAN, no ipad, no NANOWRIMO project. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd like a couple of 'honey do' things done. Totally done, cleaned up after, finished. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Seems simple to me. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Have you given MAN this list? For anytime this month? - Anne Bouey
The 'honey do' things, yes. The wrapping paper and cake are beyond him, as is 'no ipad'. Day off is a work thing and won't happen b/c I'm taking a day to cater the LARP, though I may do nothing the following day since he'll still be at the LARP. I have to pick up and serve that night. Much of it is on me and I'm just being whiny 🐹 - Shannon - GlassMistress
