Re: All about Cats

Before I head out for the weekend...

I was looking at birthday cards recently and found a nice one.

I'll let you admire it for a little while and then I will post the message inside. : )

Re: Grammar Time!

Tempting indeed! 

But I already have a hot date lined up for this weekend. So the tantalizing literature will have to wait awhile longer...  : )

Re: Grammar Time!

Read the book! Haha - well that is one way to find out.  Googling Severin is another. But neither is as entertaining as posing that question here. : ) You know, Lou Reed said ViF was the funniest dirty book he had ever read. So that speaks well for it already, but time spent on the erg in my rowing...

Re: Grammar Time!

I have been listening to old tunes from Velvet Underground lately (while doing taxes - its perfect!) And a grammatical question has come up. In Venus in Furs, there is a line, which I will show you first without punctuation: Strike dear mistress and cure his heart. Yet, it is ambiguous. Is it: Strik...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Music should mostly stay in the OT, but I have one album for you, if you are planning to storm Washington with an Army of leather-clad Valkyries anytime soon.

Ragnarok - Wardruna 

This is powerful stuff.

Enjoy!

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

A few more songs being adapted for the harp now. Can't Find My Way Home - Blind Faith Dust in the Wind - Kansas A Horse with No Name - America It's really interesting to watch how it goes. And I've posted this one before - the harp is surprisingly good for this and its fun to sing the futuristic sto...

Re: Stupid question of the day

Why’s it called a refrigerator? Can’t you use it for cooling something for the first time? The answer comes in Latin! "Refrigerator Etymology Artificial refrigeration was first demonstrated by William Cullen in 1748, and the earliest refrigeration machines developed in the first half of the 19th ce...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I would never be rude to you! I'm only ever rude to Cuch (he can be a bit of a troll!), bearish (a lost cause!) and AlexEro (a very unpleasant person). Hehe.  I would not be offended, even if you ever were. I walk (and sing) softly, but I carry a big shillelagh! ** Back to politics!  So we are now ...

She's showing the classic left-wing lack of self awareness. See Geldof. Is "she" referring to me?

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Potatoes from America, cows domesticated in the Middle East,... I think the cow example was genuinely one of the BBC why-Britain-is-rubbish examples.
