I’m still catching up but need to say the NJ-Jim needs to stick to his normal hours. ;) And CH responding to the number of “gay” friends as two dozen. Shit, I don’t even have two dozen friends. :). At my oldest’s wedding there were 5 “Mother of the .......”. 5. Imagine coordinating dress colors.

Jim, I can only speak peripherally re: UW MedSchool. I didn’t attend but have met many who have and they are all top notch people. UW University Hospital is phenomenal for both the clinics and hospital portion. The Pediatric Oncology wing holds a special place in my heart. Amazing people. Madison isn’t a bad place to live during school either. Liberal enough that homesickness from CA will be minimal. 😊 I know a lot more about the Neuroscience Training program.

Narc, thanks for reading the State Urinal so I don’t have to. You don’t have to be crazy to live in Madison, but it helps. Madison is doomed by geography. Downtown is an isthmus, between 8-10 blocks wide at its narrowest. In the center is the state capital square. Traffic is a mess as is, dedicating lanes to rapid transit is nonsensical but I’m sure they will do it.

Not sure but I think Beasts has been interviewing for 1st Mate on the Subterfuge. https://imgur.com/gallery/KQBfP0J SFW

JiB, Sounds like the Governor’s Ball was a disaster. Hope Frederick still had a fun and safe time.

Iggy, as one of 7, we had all but two of the toys. We never got hurt from them. We were particularly clumsy however. My poor mom had to make 54 trips to the ER. They definitely left off some doozies, water pressure rockets, Jarts and caps. We would scrape the powder out of the caps and make “bombs”. A little brother nearly lost a eye when one of the bombs left a 2 inch piece of glass embedded in his forehead just above his eyebrow. “Don’t tell mom”.

Two men sitting in a bar and one says to the other that his longtime wife was growing distant and unapproachable. He said that she ignored him most of the time. His friend suggested that he take more interest in what she was doing and give more compliments. He took the advice to heart. Entering his house he could see her cooking at the stove from the entryway. Remembering his friends advice he yelled out, “that smells great, what are you cooking?”. True to form she didn’t turn around but just ignored him. Not to be put off he went to the kitchen door and resaid, “that smells great, what are you cooking?”. Again he was ignored. Walking to within 6 feet of her he repeated, “that smells great, what are you cooking?” This time she turned and said, “for the 3rd time, it is chicken cacciatore”. He scheduled a hearing exam the next day.
A-Mom, I had spent years dealing with my MIL and her hearing loss. Definitely runs in the family. Looking forward to my wife’s progressive loss. My MIL definitely had frequency loss. More trouble following her daughters than SILs. I think her loss was also related to “processing”. She couldn’t pull the relevant conversation out of a mix. I tried hard to get the family to not have multiple ongoing conversations around her and whenever possible to face her directly. Loss is loss. No amplification will allow the freq to be heard. I’ve always wondered why the isn’t technology to freq shift. It wouldn’t sound normal but it would be heard. We tried a lot of tech to little avail. We had a sound bar close to her for tv time that supposedly helped. VOX was the mfgr. At one point we thought apple’s active live listening might work but at 94 we ran into the old dog new tricks conundrum.
TomR, Clemens was pulled for a pinch hitter having thrown 139 pitches. He had had no hits in 3 earlier plate appearances.
I read here about the Gillette ad, haven’t seen it but have a question, the Dad is showing the transgender how to shave facial hair, right?

RIP Bill Buckner. I was a Red Sox fan my entire life up till October 25, 1986. I don’t blame Bill. Schiraldi was one pitch away, couldn’t bring it home. Stanley threw a wild pitch after relieving Schiraldi that scored the tying run. It was only game six, with game seven the next day, but I knew then that a team doesn’t recover from a loss like that. In 1978 I had to watch the Sox lose the AL East tiebreaker to the Yankees. What made that worse was that during the middle of July when the Red Sox had at least a twelve game lead over the Yankees I happened to be drinking after bar hours with Marty Springstead, at that time the head AL ump, who predicted the Yankees would take the pennant.

OL, I agree that there needs to be changes in format/content/time span. I have hope that an online curriculum would address knowledge transfer. I’m afraid that that would not address the benefits from a marketplace of ideas. I try to explain to my kids that my life is fuller, colors richer, tones deeper because of all that I had the opportunity to be exposed to and take advantage of.

As to me, I told my Dad I wouldn’t take his offer of a free ride. I was 2nd oldest of 7, there were better places to spend his money. I went to Boston College, worked 3 jobs, lived at home, rode the T and graduated in 4 years debt free. There is no combination of part time work that would allow someone to do that today.

Abadman, I told my kids that I would pay for 4 yrs of public college (Univ.Wisc.). They could take equivalent cash to any school of their choice but they had to pay delta. Also if they used my money they had to provide access for me to their Univ. acts. And then for total domination I told them if they got tats or more than ear piercings no more money. Only the oldest daughter complained about the tats/piercings as in her mind there was no connection to education. I told her my money my rules but that I would be very impressed if she told me to stick it to maintain independence. 4 kids, no debt, great start in life.

D: she didn’t play the card because she wasn’t indicted, wasn’t charged. No case was brought. It’s a different scenario when she can claim Trump’s DOJ is bringing a case(s) because he can’t beat her in a fair election. Don’t forget, half the country is DEM stupid. Appearances count.

And that would mean that she doesn’t have a blanket pardon from O’Dumbo.

Mel, i can only think she will announce as a shield from prosecution during the “campaign “.

Jane, two oils, canola and peanut. The 2nd closest bottle is red wine vinegar. Steph, that’s not a knife block, a wooden organizer with charging cords visible. Lyle, I’m willing to give her a break that the obligatory glass of wine is out of the frame and since she seems to be making a marinade for the protein in the bag perhaps ‘‘tis too soon to be drinking. Picture police out.

“I would like someone more savvy, informed and logical than me..” My 12 year old will be home from school in about an hour, I’ll ask her then.
Tom R, Do you read your links? Jeff Carlson @themarketswork · 6h Replying to @themarketswork So I'm clear. I have no special knowledge of where we stand.
Henry, the DNR regs prohibit release on their lands. You can release on private land with permission of the land owner (oopsies). My favorite release spot is a few miles away on the opposite side of a 4lane hwy where there is a steep hill by the roadside. Slam the trap on the ground, pop the door and turn over and they roll down the hill down the hill. Mel, I’m aware of the problem with raccoon scat. If I suspect a latrine, I am fortunate to have pool chemicals to spread that drive them away.

I wish I could shoot the critters but I live within city limits and am limited to BB’s. The squirrels are trained to run away when I open the door to the deck. Raccoons would require that I sit out there and wait. I do live trap but my wife insists on a catch and release policy, albeit far from home.

For hummingbird feeders, Baker’s sugar will go into solution without heat. Snap. Now if someone can tell me how to stop the raccoons and squirrels from drinking the water....
