Home again, home again. MAN is kinda grumpy so no big welcome home. Dogs were over my arrival in three minutes. Ah well, at least I'm sleeping in my own bed :-)
Are you allowed to sit on the edge of your bed? :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Yes! Never did figure out how to get out of bed without sitting on the edge. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Josiah was yapping about Minecraft for ages, so now I'm making him read about gem stones and mining. #fairsfair #fb
Helen just goes for 'David, I am not interested.' As indeed do I at times. - Pete : Team Marina
That doesn't always stop Josiah! He tries, but 30 seconds later there is just "one more thing" he HAS to mention before he forgets ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Maybe he can keep a Minecraft diary? - Pete : Team Marina
I allow David to talk about his games at length every so often, on the understanding this covers him for a while ;) - Pete : Team Marina
A diary is a good idea! I think he just needs a sounding board sometimes. Channeling his enthusiasm into reading today worked though, he was quite interested, and was particularly excited to learn about foolsgold. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Yeah, that sounds a good idea too :) - Pete : Team Marina
Have him learn about lasers and quantum tunneling next? - Mo Kargas
It also doubled as his homework reading - he's finished all the class readers so he can read whatever he wants now. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Lasers yes, I have no idea what quantum tunneling is so maybe I should read about that first? Or else I'll just tell him "Ask Mo" if he has questions. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Quantum tunneling is when Scott Bakula breaks into your house from beneath. - Pete : Team Marina
^ this guy. THIS GUY. LOL - Mo Kargas
That show was so good. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I see that Scott Bakula is in the latest NCIS spin off... - Pete : Team Marina
When they were little, I used to go for long walks with my nephews, one nephew at a time. Half the walk would be them telling me about whatever game they were playing. I just smiled and nodded through most of it. The rest of the walk, I had them actually have a conversation. :-) - bentley
When my mind (and patience!) is up to it, I like to ask him questions about the game, or get him to expand on a concept he's been considering. I don't understand it, and I'm honestly not interested, but I know how important it is for children to be listened to, and I remember how good it felt when I was a kid and an adult took an interest (however feigned!) in something that was exciting to me. - Melly - #TeamMarina
But are you smiling, Pete? - bentley
I should think not ;) - Pete : Team Marina

When I look at the cost of our daughter's hospitalization, along with the ER & ambulance bill, I am so grateful for the health insurance we get through Eric's job. But however grateful I am, I do not look forward to paying our portion.
Yeah, even with great insurance, co-pays can be rough. :( - Jenny H. from Android

How food manufacturers calculate "serving size": divide product until fat/sodium/sugar/etc are acceptable "per serving".
Ain't that the truth! - Spidra Webster
I had a 3:2 rectangle pan of frozen lasagna. Serving size of 7. How the hell do you slice it up to make seven slices? Seven very thin slices? I don't think so. I think we made it for 6 servings or so. - Joe

Cops do boy's homework after burglar call out - The Local -
Cops do boy's homework after burglar call out - The Local
"An 11-year-old boy in Stockholm ended up getting help with his homework by the police after he rang them up saying he was concerned a burglar was breaking into his house. The boy was home alone at night when he heard a loud thump and became convinced that a thief was trying to get inside. He quickly got on the phone to the local police who were dispatched to the scene. After a quick check it turned out that there was no burglar but the boy was still upset and had another problem - his maths homework. "He had rang his mother also but he was on his own when the police got there and they didn't want to leave him alone so they sat down and helped him with his multiplication tables and other homework," Viktor Adolphson of the Södermalm police told Nyheter 24. Both Adolphson and his colleague Johan Säfström maintain a Twitter feed for the Södermalm police and wrote a bulletin about the incident which spread like wildfire. More than 4,000 people favorited the tweet and praised the officers... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
I'm officially transitioning from baker to pastry chef. It may seem an abstract difference, but I feel gratified and respected, and I like about the fact that there's a tinge of affirmative action in play. It's kinda crap that historically women belonged in the kitchen, but only men were good enough to go pro. Further good news in comments.
For the folks that follow my story, bless you kind souls, I talked to the executive chef (my direct boss) a bit more about my injury. Physical therapy is going well, but it's slow and I'm daunted by the job ahead. The restaurant opening got delayed another week, so that's good for me. Now I will get a week of training alone in the kitchen with EC. I can run through our opening dessert menu, and he'll work with me some on bread (by far my weak spot, I am lord of desserts but bread was always my husband's domain). If I can't keep up with the workload, they will hire an assistant for me... the most qualified other applicant for my job, an older man who specializes in bread. So that'll be incredibly helpful, and I gotta say it feels great that someone wants to hire me this bad. After my demoralizing experience losing my last job, I am very fortunate to have someone pursuing me when the thought of me pursuing a job was a bit overwhelming. Feeling grateful is the best, y'all. - Lo
It sounds like you landed in a very good situation. Congratulations! - bentley
That's fantastic! - Spidra Webster
I know the difference, & I'm impressed :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Happy anniversary :-) - Marina's Godmother :-) from Android
Why is it called that? - Joe
Because it's the term used for the return of the date on which something significant happened. Like a birthday. Which, technically, is also an anniversary. Guess it has something to do with "anno", the year. :-P Also, thanks, Helen! - Uli from Android

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. - 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
