Eons ago, Napster had ALL of these Big Mama recordings that were of her earlier stuff and ton of old blues & jazz from the turn of the century, where they didn't even know who was performing. If they still have it, you should check it out. I've not been able to find them anywhere since. - Anika
Thanks Anika, I'll have a look for that. I've found a lot of her stuff on YouTube, and *ahem* by other methods. :) - Ken Morley
Love me some BMT. - Derrick

In about a month I have a bead show and I'm struggling to come up with 'new' things. Many of the 'cute' beads I make are 3D and in my opinion more collectible than wearable so this weekend I worked on the wearable aspect and came up with these bears which should lay flat. Yea or Nay? Also, owls and penguins because I can :-)
Show all
I'm also thinking turtle neck sweaters for the polar bears - hee! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Love 'em. For a flat bead, why not a turtle? - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Yea. All of them. - Betsy
All of these are adorable. I still rave about my lamp pull to anyone who will listen - maybe smaller versions of that design, too? (Mine is about the size of a 50 cent piece.) - Corinne L

One Southwest Side elementary principal — who along with others did not want her name printed for fear of retribution — said in a telephone interview that since Aramark took over the school, it has developed a problem with bugs and rodents that are feasting on garbage and on spilled drops of milk on floors that aren’t being cleaned enough, she... -

Just walked past a group of kids at Josiah's school who were all taller than me. #shortlife #fb
Are you under 165cm? One of my daughter's teachers is only slightly taller than my 8yo. Even though she's very pregnant, for a brief moment, I thought she was a student. - Anika
I'm under 165cm. :( - LB sad. from Android
No way. I thought you were closer to my height. (I like how I said that like I'm tall. HAHAHA). - Anika
I am - I'm 152. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Ah...that's the same as one of my aunts and my step-mom. My aunt was a kinder teacher and said by 3rd or 4th grade, most her former students surpassed her. - Anika
Now I definitely need to meet Melly in person! It's rare that I'm taller than anybody. - LB sad. from Android

The day before yesterday: when abrupt climate change came to the Chesapeake Bay | NOAA
The day before yesterday: when abrupt climate change came to the Chesapeake Bay | NOAA
"IN OCTOBER 2003, A LITTLE-KNOWN THINK TANK in the Department of Defense quietly released a report warning that climate change could happen suddenly—so suddenly it could pose a major threat to our country's national security. The title of the Pentagon report was a mouthful: An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and its Implications for United States National Security. Those implications included rising seas, flooded coastal cities, at least one drowned country, droughts, food shortages, failed states, and fortress states. The report was never designed as a scientific prediction. It was a speculative effort by defense strategists to dramatize all the security threats the country would face if the climate suddenly shifted. Why was the Pentagon suddenly worried about abrupt climate change? Because there was new evidence it had happened before. Ice core indicators show that the Holocene, our current interglacial epoch, began some 11,000 years ago and brought a time of stable temperatures,... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

It's 50°F right now! 😨 😱 It's positively Autumnal.
My ex-neighbors moved away when they were expecting their first child. They're friends with the people who live in that house now, and they're visiting tonight. The husband brought their now 6 month old son over to meet me. HE'S SO DAGGONE CUTE & when he smiled at me it made my whole entire day! I'm really touched that he brought the baby over here

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

Doorbell rings. Usually, on weekdays, that's UPS dropping off an item and the truck's gone by the time I get to the door.'s Sunday. And there's a smiling USPS (not UPS!) employee, having just dropped off Gray's Anatomy Season 10, which we ordered with free ("5-8 day shipping") and which shipped on Friday.
I look surprised, she says "Starting today. Only parcels." I knew the Postal Service was starting Sunday deliveries to do the work UPS and FedEx don't do well, and to do Amazon grocery delivery...but this was a USPS parcel, sent at minimum cost. Delivered Sunday. Did I mention delivered Sunday? At no extra cost? - Walt Crawford
I wish to Gaia that Congress would stop trying so hard to put USPS out of business (USPS is actually profitable, except for $5 billion a year in forced long-term retirement costs that NO OTHER AGENCY IS REQUIRED TO PAY), since I regard it as the best delivery service out there. - Walt Crawford
Yep, we've had Sunday delivery maybe a year now. Amazing. ETA: Oh, not even Amazon? Wow! - Meg VMeg from Android
I would also note that Amazon's learned how to "overpack" DVD sets--a plain air-padded envelope, not a lot bigger than the set itself. Nothing else, nothing inside, and I assume they paid $1.81 (media mail, up to 1lb., 5-digit presort) or less. - Walt Crawford
"Air-padded" isn't the right word--it's one of those envelopes lined with bubble-wrap equivalent. Anyway, Amazon and USPS both get full credit. - Walt Crawford
Yeah, Amazon struck a deal with USPS. (I get all the USPS gossip now that toddlerx's dad has a second job as a rural route driver.) - laura x from iPhone
Meg: No, it was Amazon. But it appears that it's for other parcels as well. - Walt Crawford
Now watching The Third Man; @movieguyjon is gonna love this one!
For Real Italian Food, Skip These 8 Dishes -- The Cut -
For Real Italian Food, Skip These 8 Dishes -- The Cut
"When travelers book their trips to Italy, there’s usually one aspect they’re particularly excited about: the food. Oh, to drown in dishes of fra diavolo and swim in pools of spaghetti and meatballs! To inhale the pungent, sweet smell of garlic bread and eat cheesecake by the pound! For anyone with a penchant for comfort food, it seems like a dream. There’s just one problem: Unless you want to spend all your time in restaurants that cater exclusively to Americans, you'll have a tough time finding any of the dishes that have been marketed to you for years as Italian. That’s because so much of the food that we consider Italian, well, isn’t. It’s Italian-American. And, for the most part, that’s an entirely different cuisine — so different, in fact, that few Italians would recognize many of the dishes if served to them." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"My best friend and militant environmentalist made an interesting point about all this to me yesterday: why are we focusing all of our energy on saving water on a personal level when the vast majority of water is being used by businesses?" — Mike N.
"Fracking, farming, manufacturing, etc uses way more water than we do when we take a shower, water our lawns, or get a car wash. Don't get me wrong, we should all be conserving water, but are businesses being asked to do the same just as aggressively as we are?" - Victor Ganata
Granted, we haven't started implementing really aggressive measures yet (and LADWP certainly doesn't have the resources to aggressively enforce existing measures anyway) but, yeah, I'm not sure that cracking down on individual households is actually going to do jackshit if big ag and industry don't ramp down their own use. - Victor Ganata
How about we (you) start by eliminating the commercial bulk rate for water and charge all consumers the same price. - DJF from Android
I can't even begin to imagine what sorts of political machinations and backdoor deals and possible assassinations would be required to loosen the crony capitalist iron grip of the LADWP and the MWD. Sacramento seems utterly powerless against them. Washington D.C. probably wouldn't stand much chance against them either without sending troops to nationalize them. - Victor Ganata

It is a fairly large group (19) with only one teacher and one assistant, so less personal time. Instead of three mornings it is now 4 full days. A lot of changes, but she loved it! - Stephan #TeamMarina

The love: my blood work came back much, much better than I anticipated. The bitch: I had to get blood drawn again today because they didn't do TSH and T4 on the original draw, which I thought had been ordered.
Blood sugar was normal (I was most concerned about this), LDL needs a little work, blood pressure needs a little work. But NO MEDS. The thyroid may be the big issue, which wouldn't be surprising considering my family history. - Corinne L
If you think your thyroid is an issue, I'd recommend that you insist on a full thyroid panel .. TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, and Thyroid Antibodies. TSH & T4 alone may not give you an accurate picture. I hope everything comes out well! - Kristin
Thanks for the tip, Kristin! - Corinne L
