@pedant -I’m replying to you whilst Thane is cooking dinner.
If we reply you know no-one’s food is poisoned. No worries with the taggin’.
@Winston thank you -and how are you doin’?
My laptop is being “checked over”and I’m borrowing one but unfortunately it won’t let me access facebook which is how, sometimes, I communicate. Also, rather fo…[Read more]
hi Puro here -brute force prevented an earlier response.
I will go to the fth ta.
While at it, I’m at 20 odd mins into ep 1 of 13R and notice Jessica’s comment “I’m already in Hell…”whilst sucking a red lolly pop. Buffy memories. Actually, too close for coincidence. But prob confirmation bias.
I’ll head to the msg page: if I can get there
Do I get credit for finding the Little Shop?
I got lost. I was in the ceiling for awhile and, later, I became a floor puddle.
Every time I clicked near the two or three people standing near the Lift area (to the left of where everyone else is grouped watching telly/etc) they disappeared. Completely vanished!
Happily it did my head in…[Read more]
Well well. This IS new. First time I’ve ever responded on a blog, blog post or topic
It’s Thane’s dad with Thane who is waving hello
Lots of things I know nothing about. Which is why I like experts. But I know this: whether any hemisphere was once ice or not and whether or not the dry and dusty plains were rainforests…[Read more]
@janetteB you should include some of those posts in your newsletter! Thing is, a lot of what we cook does come from other countries originally. Her Greek dish, the vegetarian curry (which was Grandma’s invention and won a prize 20 years ago in some magazine) and the spicy pumpkin curry.
We’re not really a meat and 3 vege family. But the doctor…[Read more]
Mum said “””yuck” to the whale meat and said that Dad didn’t like turnips until she started cooking them and sprouts I like which is a surprise.
I’m with you on the pumpkin which is everywhere in roasts and soups but Mum does make a simple pumpkin soup with salt, pepper and cream -very thick. She does a Thai one with coconut milk,…[Read more]
How are you?! I read your post and so did Mum and she did say to me “watch for Cath’s work at the university.”
And I DID forget so I’m really glad for the reminder. Mum and I were really interested in the lectures and how fascinating they were -when you showed us where to find the topics that were around and advertised last…[Read more]
That’s awesome! Mum loves those ospreys and I really liked just sitting there, last winter (here) and holding a hot chocolate listening to the wind and the birds and watching them fly about.
@bluesqueakpip Hey The Gang!
Thank you SO much. That is SUCH a help. I’m already motivated to think Jack is the same Jack -and by that I don’t mean my facts are changed to suit the theory -but that other philosophers have already indicated jack is jack.
I don’t think we’re supposed to mention Kant or Freud/Jung yet which I’d like to do. Kant…[Read more]
@missy Hey. No worries All good. I agree.
Alpackahacka love your moniker and picture.
I think you’re right. He would be an enemy? Makes sense.
@whisht Happy late birthday to you! Mum thinks it was 2-3 weeks ago! Belated returns
To anyone intelligent: which is all of you.
I’m doing this thing in philosophy called Jack’s Problem. Jack sits in…[Read more]
Mr Fish Man! Thank you. I obviously mucked that up. Mum would’ve been embarrassed -she still will be.
And I’m trying to make sense of John Locke. Mum says “economist” and “determinist” and my teacher and philosophy tutor says “Locke is a memory believer”
Must post a song on thread -a Pink Floyd which fits the Doctor -one of…[Read more]
The Lana Del Ray is
the sameas similar to Creep. There’s no way round that. The middle 8/12 *cough * reminds me of something .. from Sgt Peppers or Revolveractually. That’s happily nicked,studied as well.

Hallooo! You called the friendly musician? Please press 1 for sales; 2 for technical difficulty and 3 for possible truth and fact mixed with fun.
Yep, Jim, the chords of the 50s are as much of a cross-over as the early 60s. And this has happened before.
Mendelssohn’s famous Octet contains bars from The Messiah- if you…[Read more]
Alright! That’s awesome. I mean your response, Ms Mudlark. I don’t think Mum saw it that way (or she might have?) and actually I didn’t either and what was really good in your response was the bit in bold:
the basis of my criticism was, not that it was done, but that it was done rather clumsily in what was otherwise an anything…[Read more]
