Oh gawd, I am pissed. No good day for bike ride at all. Almost got run over, mauled by a dog and now broke down. #fuckity
:((( - Jenny H.
Dang. - Marie
Boo - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Ugh. I'm sorry it wasn't a good ride. :-( - vicster: full-bodied
Thanks... guess it's par for the course to have days like that. Tire is dead, and the shifter needs some serious work. Will be done by Monday, so no ride tomorrow. Just very thankful for Kirsten coming to pick me up and drive us to the shop. - Uli
Hope the rest of the day is a big improvement. - Anne Bouey
We're at one of the small airfields in the area to see a 1929 plane and by coincidence a guy here's flying his 1950's Navy plane as well. So Uli's day just got a whole lot better. - Kirsten from Android

Not really complaining! We desperately need the rain. - Anne Bouey
I saw this post and thought about you http://www.reddit.com/r... - Rodfather
I was driving at the start and all the cars pulled to the side because suddenly we were driving unprepared on icy roads! The hail was so large that I'm afraid to check my car for dents. - Anne Bouey
Wow scary - Rodfather
Oh wow, I didn't notice the hail in the thumbnail 'til you mentioned it. Yikes. - Spidra Webster
Driving back from Monterey earlier I saw across the bay all those clouds around Santa Cruz. It didn't hit Watsonville but read there was hail in Aptos which is right next door. - Rodfather from Android
And you are not in Colorado? - Julian
Julian, this is in Napa, CA although we did experience similar events when we lived in CO (both with hail and with snow!). - Anne Bouey
I got the severe weather alert for Napa on the radio and was so surprised. Clear skies here in the South Bay. Hope you and your car are okay, Anne. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Woah. Woah - Amit Patel
It's been quite a day here. We started with a 2.5 aftershock and ended with this! - Anne Bouey
Crazy! I'm also a little jealous :-) - Amit Patel
From the Napa Valley Register: "The skies above Napa turned furious during rush hour Friday evening, pelting the area with heavy rain, marble-size hail stones and claps of thunder. In some west Napa areas, the hail piled up two inches deep, creating a Sierra winter landscape that prompted motorists to slow to a crawl or pull over. When they felt safe, some got out of their cars to take... more... - Anne Bouey
I miss 70, but it looks like we'll have a beautiful, hail free 60+ day :) - Morgan Fugel from Android

High-flying CEO quits after daughter writes list of 22 milestones he missed - 9news.com.au
"The head of a $2 trillion investment fund has revealed he quit his job after his 10-year-old daughter wrote him a note listing 22 special moments in her life he had missed. California-based Mohamed El-Erian shocked the financial world when he announced his resignation as chief executive of PIMCO in January 2014. Mr El-Erian, who made $100 million 2011 alone, said in a recent essay for Worth that his wife and daughter were at the heart of his decision to quit." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
Wow. - Joe
Just like Urban Meyer. But then he un-quit. - Marie
I think he received a wake-up call - Mo Kargas

Today I put in an offer on a house. There's a first time for everything.
Yay! Good luck! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Also remarked to spouse: I had a kid, got married, both my parents are dead ... this owning a house thing is another marker towards becoming all growed up. (not that completely juvenile idiots don't own houses but you know, it's one of those things that makes you feel soberingly adultish). - Laura Norvig
Is it one of the houses that you posted previously? Good luck! - Anne Bouey
So cool! I hope you get it! - Anne Bouey
Got it! - Laura Norvig

Thanks all! I can't say we were surprised, she's been on 'palliative care' for some time. I didn't think letting her go would bother me much as she's 16, been ill for a while, and has interrupted our sleep consistently for 6ish years (senile - wakes up 'lost') but I find I'm surprisingly crushed. go figure. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Mother drives with 5-month-old in trunk to avoid being cited for not having car seat - Sun Sentinel - http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news...
"A Lauderdale Lakes woman is accused of driving with her 5-month-old baby in the trunk of a car to avoid getting a ticket for not having a car seat. Broward sheriff's deputies conducting a traffic stop early Tuesday found the baby lying on a pair of large hedge-cutting shears and surrounded by potentially hazardous items, Judge John "Jay" Hurley said, reading from a police report during first-appearance court Tuesday afternoon. Breona Synclair Watkins, 19, was arrested and charged with child abuse, resisting an officer and five traffic-related offenses, including driving without a license and failure to have a child restraint." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The infant had been sitting in the passenger's lap, but Watkins didn't want to get ticketed for not having a car seat, so she told the 14-year-old to put the baby in the trunk through an opening in the back seat, Hurley said. Watkins told the teen to put up the seat to hide the infant from deputies and then drove about a half-mile with the baby in the trunk." - Jessie
"Deputies found the baby lying among a rusty metal hanger, a plastic CD case and a large, rusted tire iron, Hurley said. Also surrounding the baby were a used gas can and other hazardous materials. The temperature inside the trunk was significantly warmer than the air outside." - Jessie

What you don't want to hear, "Mom I can't breathe". What you don't want to do, book it to the ER. What you don't want from the doc, "it's not getting better, we'll need to check you in." What you don't want the ER to say, "you'll have to take an ambulance to the other side of town and check into the PICU." Where we don't want to be. Here.

Not sure who to ask, anybody know some all around computer ninjas here? Here's the problem: Got an old beater computer from work, trying to run Minecraft on it for Wade, keep getting an error when it loads -error file attached. I believe this has something to do with where the .jar files are stored or something related to the java runtime environ
computer is running windows 7 service pack 1 - Laura Norvig
how much memory does the computer have? does it have a pretty good video card? - holly #ravingfangirl
hmm - total avail graphics memory 358MB, dedicated video memory 0 . When I click on show name of video card it just says ThinkPad Display and Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset ... - Laura Norvig
installed RAM is 3GB - Laura Norvig
That was from Jim, Laura. :) - Anne Bouey
You're a badass ninja, Anne! This could mean that he should only use this computer for playing his mods with Vanilla Minecraft, which runs versions prior to 1.7 - Laura Norvig
Ah, you posted it was Jim after I anointed you ninja. Thanks, Jim! - Laura Norvig

Getting animals to dazzle on screen is a wild job - Lowell Sun Online - http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_2655...
Getting animals to dazzle on screen is a wild job - Lowell Sun Online
Getting animals to dazzle on screen is a wild job - Lowell Sun Online
"For animal trainers on film sets, the job can be wild. Getting snakes on a plane takes a bit of heat or light, but cajoling a bear to perform for the camera can require buckets of fried chicken. Casey the bear, seen in "Evan Almighty" and other movies, had that diva-like demand written into his contract. KFC was his favorite, and it had to be fresh. Sometimes, on remote locations, it would take a 90-minute drive to get to the nearest fast food outpost, his trainer said. The story is among those in the book "Animal Stars," a behind-the-scenes look at how trainers get species from badgers to bears to safely do what dazzles. Set for release Sept. 25, the book is co-written by the head of the American Humane Association, whose entertainment unit is the industry's only sanctioned animal welfare program. The book celebrates the unit's 75th anniversary this year. The group will come on set for a fee to ensure animal safety. If all goes well, it allows the familiar tagline "No animals were harmed in the making of this film" to roll in movie credits." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"The book features quotes from actors and directors like Quentin Tarantino, who says animals need an advocate. "They need somebody saying, 'No, it's too much.' 'They're too tired.' 'It's too scary for them.' 'Something could happen,'" the "Django Unchained" director said in the book. "You can do amazing, eye-popping things. You just need the time to train the animals and get them ready... more... - Anne Bouey

What's your favorite calculator model used in school or thereafter?
Casio fx-7000g, still use it. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
HP-67 all the way, though I'll admit my HP-45 probably got me through my EE degree. - David Lounsbury
I never really learned to use calculators for advanced functions until last year. My HS calculator (which I still have and which still works on its ORIGINAL battery) is a TI-35 Plus. I really like the size of it. But it's a little sticky around the buttons so when I was in Chem 22 I bought a TI-36X. Its weight and size is nice but it has no log button. It turns out you do log by... more... - Spidra Webster
I don't remember what brand/model it was, but it was a printing calculator that I found in one of the abandoned offices at the airport, back when I worked there, that I swiped for use in my office (I didn't feel like bringing mine from home). I should have taken it with me when I left that job. The keys had such a good feel to them. - April Russo
I really loved my TI-85 when I was in school (and after, until I left it in a cart at Walmart accidentally, and lost it forever). Not sure I really remember any particular models of calculator I've used since; I mostly just use whatever's built into my computer or phone. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
When I was in school there weren't any. Good thing I was an English major. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. <3 - Jenny H. from Android
HP-48 S, although I never used it to its full potential. - Brian Johns
Still have my HP-32S, vintage 1988 model, as my go-to calculator. I keep non-RPN calculators on hand for the other librarians. - Elizabeth Brown
I liked using my graphing calculator in high school and college. I forget if it was a TI-80 or TI-81. Probably the latter. - John (bird whisperer)
HP-48 S, never needed its full potential. - Angelo
I really liked the TI-68 I had in high-school, and hated the switch to the graphing calculators (I did a lot better with the math itself when forced to graph by hand.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I had and still have a casio fx-4500 - Amit Patel
TI-81. The only calculator I ever used in high school and college. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
Hp 11c reverse polish. - Joe from iPod
HP-48GX. - Julian
In school? I had a really good K&E slide rule. Never did learn all of its functions, but got really good at mentally calculating magnitudes. - Walt Crawford
*wonders what a reverse Polish calculator is and if it's anything like reverse cowgirl* - Spidra Webster
I'm with the oldsters in this group. Personal calculators had just become available when I took statistics the summer after graduating college, but they were so very expensive then. A few people in the class had them, but I still used a slide rule. - Anne Bouey

What's the most reliable automobile you've ever owned?
Saturn SL1 - Meg VMeg
A BMW me ex had was very reliable. Never had an issue at all. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Hyundai Elantra (2003) - Jennifer Dittrich
All three of my recent cars have been very reliable: Ford Focus, Scion TC, and now a Toyota Yaris. Nary a problem with any of them. - Friar Will
My old Checker cab - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Dodge colt that was essentially a Mitsubishi. - Joe from iPod
This 20 year old Voyager I'm driving now. But my favoritest car was my always-needing-maintenance 93 Cutlass SL. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Our Honda Civics. All of them, except for the transmission problem on the '95. (Now down to just one, our new 2005.) - Walt Crawford
Joe reminded me of the Colt that I had as well. Yes, it too was very reliable. - Friar Will
Hondas, 12 of them in the immediate family over the years. - Anne Bouey
My Volvo XC99 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
1965 Ford Mustang and 1950 GMC panel truck. - Greg GuitarBuster
Citroen AX Lx - obe
2007 Volkswagen Beetle. - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Android
!984 Oldsmobile Cutlas Ciara, that we named Betsy. But the most reliable I ever paid for was a friend's used Toyota cargo van that had over a million miles on it before he retired from the courier biz and sold it to another courier driver. - April Russo
I'm still driving my 1992 Honda Civic. - Marie from iPhone
Toss up between my '97 Civic EX and my '80 Ford Fairmont Sedan. That thing was a friggin' BEAST. My current Civic is too new to really sing the praises of but it's not let me down yet, so. - Hookuh Tinypants
Any of my Chevy Pickups - WarLord
My old Hyundai Excel was pretty reliable. In 18 years I had to replace the clutch twice and that was the worst of it. My Subaru Baja has been pretty reliable over the 10 years I've had it. - vicster: full-bodied
Subaru Forrester - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Toyota Tundra - 14 years now. Two trips total to the mechanic. - Steve C Team Marina
Honda Civic. Love it - Prometa

This home buying thing is getting realer. On the table:
1) A small townhome, but it has a big garage and four rooms upstairs and our monthly payment would be sooo low. Also in a quiet cul-de-sac and has a nicely upgraded (though small) kitchen. Downside is it is hot and price might be driven up by bidding war: http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
2) A real house, that backs up to a peaceful greenbelt. Gorgeous big living room. Funky old small kitchen. Inspection report shows termite/dry rot that needs to be investigated further. I wasn't drawn to it at first, but when I went back a second time it started calling to me. We would be bidding below asking due to all of the problems, but don't really know what we're getting into. http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
Tough decision. Good luck! - Anne Bouey
3) A soulless, but newish, comfortable place. No real yard, but nothing to fix up. Only three bedrooms. Big garage. http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
The third one is surprisingly soulless inside, considering how cute it is outside. I like the townhouse (1). - bentley
Doing some research and apparently termites are almost a given in California. The main question is has there been any structural damage. - Laura Norvig
64 Vista Verde is prolly my fav for long term living for only one reason water restrictions are gonna get severe AND you'll have HOA demanding you maintain green. your green area is miniscule! and because it's so small it'll be economical, likely, to put in fake grass. but the kitchen is puny, tho there is ample space to renovate. and the upstairs laundry give me pause personally. I'd rather schlep then deal with water intrusions. but overall you're gonna live in Watsonville. yay!! I love it up there. - Lnorigb
Good luck. We wouldn't even look at the third one for two reasons: 1. HOA. 2. Two-story. (But I guess all of your choices are two-story.) If you want a third reason: 3. HOA. - Walt Crawford
I think I've been watching Property Brothers too much. The fact that the one we love (#2) needs tons of work is not phasing me anymore. - Laura Norvig
Lnorigb, the HOA fees at that place include them caring for the front lawn, not us. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I hate the upstairs laundry idea too. I'm actually used to doing laundry in the garage. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
This is going to be so stressful ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
it is stressful. but nice that HOA maintains the front lawn. - Lnorigb

The doctor said I should be able to dance again, but not for a year. I can get through this but I feel grief like a part of me has died, albeit temporarily. BF telling me 10min later I should be glad I'm not paralyzed. Can I be sad, FF?
I mean it's only my #1 coping mechanism AND way to get in touch with my emotions, plus my favorite mode of self-expression, not to mention the only activity that has consistently brought me joy at all times of my life. - Lo from Android
You can be sad. And you can certainly grieve a loss, even if you know it's temporary. - Anne Bouey
YES. I'm so sad for you. I've been out of dance for a month with mono and am heartbroken, I can't even imagine what you're going through other than knowing it sucks times ten million. :-( Sending dance love <3 - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
I recognize that it's good to look at the positive, and I am making a big effort, but that felt so invalidating of my feelings, I do believe some reassurance might be in order. He sounds right, but it feels so shitty. - Lo from Android
On the actual bright side, I've found five ways (so far!) to enjoy the magic of dance despite my limitations. Fuck those restrictions! - Lo from Android
Could you expand your dance to choreography during your down time? - Janet from FFHound!
Lo, you get to feel any and every way that you feel about not being able to dance. Or about anything else, for that matter. *sends speedy healing love* - vicster: full-bodied
I hope you're better soon. Losing a creative outlet really sucks. *hugs* - John (bird whisperer)
Absolutely!!! I'll be sad with and for you, in fact. *hug* - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I figure we feel sad when bad things happen because it's part of how we grieve - you can still be grateful about other things, but still sad about those. I hope that your recovery is swift, but it feels totally understandable to be down a little about your situation now. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks guys :) It's a real boost, since I see so few people these days. - Lo from Android
Thanks for the dance love, Penguin! First thing I did after that discussion was text a dance friend... you get it! I also really appreciate the choreography suggestion, I've had a multi-year project on the back brain burner for a long time, and that sounds great. I was discouraged about not being able to do much even mentally for a while, but it's getting better with less painkillers. - Lo from Android
The grief of "what might have been" is part of our physical limitations the grief of :"what if" and "what now" I hope you can find solace in music and movement that is perhaps not dance but something else that is you escaping your sadness and static place. Know perhaps that your feeling now could enrich your palette of emotions for a dance you build in your mind that others may share. I send you peace and empathy and healing thoughts and the knowledge that this to shall pass - WarLord
Emotions are seldom an either/or, strictly one emotion affair. We feel many things at once. They are all valid. Hope and positivity for the future and grief and sadness for the now often live comfortably (and uncomfortably) together. - Michael W. May

We are not in Michigan. We are at an ER outside Chicago waiting for a cab to my cousin's house. #toddlerx cut his finger on an escalator at ORD and required three stitches. Worst. Vacation. Ever.

Oh no! Something broken or was he just curious ? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
He had put his Thomas engine on the escalator thinking it would go down, but we were at the top of the up escalator. He reached to get it back and cut the pad of his pinky about halfway off. - laura x from iPhone
:( :( :( - lris
Oh ow! I have sliced off a bit of one of my finger's pads, and I remember it as painful and quite bloody. And I was an adult, so I'm sure it was scary for the young man. Tell him your friends in the computer are thinking of him tonight. - Steele Lawman

If you have an iPhone 5s and can help me by installing my (free) app to see if it works OR if it closes/crashes immediately, it would help me out enormously right now. Anyone?
Eh, it crashed for me but I'm running the latest iOS8 beta so may not be the best test case. - rönin
More information is better than less, thanks, rönin. - Micah
When it launched I saw only the W and the display bar next to it, it then kinda shrank down to the iPhone 4 display size, and then resized back up to regular iPhone 5 size but the W + display bar was duplicated. And then it crashed. - rönin
Crashing for me, Micah. But it's worked for me previously on my 5S. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, okay, rönin, I appreciate the extra details—thanks. And thanks, Stephen, from what you're saying the os update probably changed the game. - Micah
Btw, I can't replicate any crashes in the simulator, and I only have iPads on had for testing, no phones. But 2 out of 2 help requests I've gotten regarding crashing were on iPhone 5s. Hmm. Not going to be easy to sort out. - Micah
5S with iOS7 crashes. - Anne Bouey
Puppy drop easter egg really has become the best value-add of them all. - Micah
Thanks for the confirmation, Anne. - Micah
Is it a problem on iPhone 5? Don't have a 5S, but my 5 has dev access and I could send you detailed crash logs. - Mark Trapp
Sure, that would be awesome, Mark. Thank you. - Micah
Crashes iOS 7.1.2 on a 5S - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Hm, unfortunately, it works on iPhone 5. :P - Mark Trapp
QUIT WORKING SO GOOD!! - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Micah, sorry you have to deal with this. I agree it was probably the 7.1.2 update that broke it. Is there anything I can do to help? - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I think you could retrieve and send me your crash report for my app. I think it works as described here: http://bjango.com/help... -- Thank you! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Our Pete is under the weather. Please to wish him well here. Go!
Possibly appendicitis, I'm told. We need to entertain him while he is in hospital :) - maʀtha
Hey Pete, get better, you! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Pete, here is a <moob flash> for ya. Get thee recovered quickly. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫

PETE! Feel better soon, my friend! - laura x

It's appendicitis folks. Operation tomorrow. - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
Hope it goes super-smoothly, Pete. Hang in there! - Marianne
Maybe they will give the appendix to you to keep in a jar on the mantel - maʀtha
Sending good wishes to you Pete! - Galadriel C.
Pete! Take care in there, okay? - Catherine Pellegrino
Wishing you well! - bentley
If you're going to go for organ removal, the appendix is kind of the pilot project version. All the pain and surgery with none of the long-term conversation starter potential. ;) - lris
(Also, thinking of you! THis stuff is no fun.) - lris
But, if you ever get sent on a deep space mission to Mars, it is one less thing you will have to worry about - maʀtha
Iris made me and Helen laugh :) - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
Can we start working on a story for how you REALLY got that scar? - Marie from iPhone
all will be well. then you can get a tattoo. good times. take care! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Wishing you an uneventful surgery and recovery. :) - Anne Bouey
Get better soon Pete! - Jen
How's it going, Pete and Helen? - maʀtha
He's out of surgery; sore and hungry, but all going well he'll be home tomorrow. http://ff.im/1kfM1e - Marina's Godmother :-)

Georgia Lawmaker Vows to End Early Voting Because Blacks Vote That Way
"Georgia Sen. Fran Millar, Republican of Dunwoody, has vowed to fight a plan to allow voting on Sunday because precincts will be "dominated by African American shoppers and... several large African American mega churches," and he "would prefer more educated voters."" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
Considering how much the GOP adores our Founding Fathers, I think they fail to see how ashamed and appalled those same men would be at the people who are selected to represent our country. - Chris Topher
Dislike. - Brian Johns
Unbelievable. - Anne Bouey
Wow - Amit Patel

My mom, 4 and a half years cancer free. At each successive checkup, I look forward to, rather than dread, hearing the results. Each time, I am so grateful for the doctors, nurses, and medical staff she has worked with along the way, especially the specialist she worked with at Virginia Mason. Hasn't been easy, but so worth it <3
And now, for a celebratory dinner with her and my dad! - Jennifer Dittrich
Huzzah! - Soup in a TARDIS
Excellent news! - Katy S

Yay! That's so fantastic! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
