Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

My sister has a three-legged cat - they named him Saruman.  Sad story, with a sort of happy ending. Someone my sister knows found him in the woods when out hiking one day - one of his front legs had been caught in a trap and he was starving to death.   Rescued and rehabbed, but the leg  could  not b...

Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

Very nice and I forgot to add a picture that you will appreciate, having been to the cat show (it was in Birmingham?) awhile back. This cat wandered over to meet me when I was visiting an herb garden recently.  orangecreamangora.JPG It is over the hills and far away, but always worth the journey.  S...

Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

All Hail, Terra Wilmottia! I have been enjoying some time off, but as several people have "politely" inquired, I assure you that I am fine and greatly enjoying the change of seasons, with the first snowstorm today. To dispel a few myths and rumors: 1) I have not been involved in any hit and run car ...

Not someone, but something - my Sennheiser headphones.

But also remember that many times in life, those who speak do not know and those who know,...

Re: Trackstar, where's my tea (it's 4 o clock)

Hehe - yes I like this one very much. Super cute with long fur and silver mackerel tabby markings. And it also has that wild askew look in its eyes -  Now in adorable repose, but soon violently shredding the arms of your favorite chair, racing around in ever widening circles, and then climbing your ...

Re: goldman sachs

I don't think that way about it.  What about his family and friends? Not a huge mea culpa here (this forum did not influence that course of events (well, extremely unlikely)), but still.  Mass media and now social media have a role sometimes, especially for young people. If you guys urged me to jump...

LOL. No your previous guess was more correct. Nantucket, Nantucket, fill up your bucket. With the smoothest whitest sand you can find. : ) Unfortunately it looks like another hurricane may be heading up here by Thursday. So much for a short vacation! Now even shorter! Enjoy evening there. I will din...

Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

Well spotted. So one very short story and then taking a nap in the sun...(but you will enjoy this one). Among many other things going on around here, up at my sister's small farm, a gradual problem emerged with the septic system over the summer. I will spare you the details, but at first sporadic, t...
