Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

Heading out with my sister on a real wilderness adventure soon, but a few things for the forum before I go. (Granted, more for the women, seen and unseen, than the rest, but whoever enjoy the arts is welcome.) In this new series: 1) A little blue pillow (will be filled with herbs for pleasant dreams...

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

I am about to take an extended vacation from here, but before I go, I will assign some reading for all of you Tories, Lib Dems, Christian Right, Louche Left, and Anarchists.  Any who call themselves Socialists should already have a good feel for the history and definitions... But anyone can try this...

Along with Mrs. W and assorted children, pets, books....and of course all of my friends who will be crashing there short medium or long term... You will be in g...

The yarn. And for the economically minded - this is about $100 worth of hand dyed superwash merino wool. Lovely stuff - if you could only feel it through this forum, you would really like it. We need Virtual Reality!

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

Sure! As long as they explain why they aren't giving everything to the needy and opening up their mansions to the homeless.  There are ways to design more equitable distributions of resources and fairness in opportunities that don’t entail giving it all away. I have to get back on the road but here...

Are champagne socialists welcome on this thread?

Just want to make sure before I dip my bejeweled toes in the water.

Re: New book on machine learning

Looks like a LARGE Johnny Walker. Hmmm. I attended a real single malt Scotch tasting recently and the training set included Glenfiddich and The Balvenie. Both a deep amber hue - TB a bit darker and more mysterious... Long road trip today so no drinking and driving! But no problem to think about cla...

I prescribe teddy bears for both of you. Ringing in ears and more generalized derangement (from constant exposure to VERY LOUD music!) should stop when you are holding one of these cuties. : ) http://www.steiffbear.us/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/steiff_ferdinand_teddy_bear_ean_036941.jpg Now I will h...

Re: Political Correctness is Dead! Time to say what you really think

Help for the needy - badinage. and short story -  Last weekend my sister and I went to the Highland Games far north of here. At the point where the massed bands were getting ready to come down the mountain (fantastic!), a really large crowd gathered at the parade field. Some folks had been drinking ...
