Waiting for a client, someone who will pay me money to learn Access. But he is late and I fear that all the wonderful things I was going to buy with his money will remain on the store shelves - sigh...

But I have news! Perhaps you will all share in my excitement. I have accepted a position teaching Mathematics at the Moore Haven J S High School in Glades Co, FL. Moore Haven is notable for four things: It is the only incorporated town in Glades Co, the population is 1,600, the major employer is Wakenhut Corp who runs the Moore Haven Correctional Institution (I'm not making this up), the major festival Chola Nikta (spelling uncertain) was first held to commemorate the paving of the main road in 1949.

Wish me luck!

Oh yeah, Hugh Jackman in any role, long or short hair!

To catch you up to Angel.
Last Season
Cordy was taken over by an amoral higher power, the whole season, that's why she seduced Connor. The higher power needed a "vessel", Cordy's baby.

The higher power is born and named Jasmine. Ensuing events totally mess up Connor's already fragile mental (raised in demon dimension, father kills father, then father had betrayed father, etc.). Jasmine is defeated and Wolfram & Hart come to Angel with a proposition. Take over Wolfram & Hart to run as you will, no strings, you can even use the resources of W & H to for good. Angel agrees with a secret bargain between him and W&H. Change reality so that Connor is raised by "normal family" and wipe everyones memory, but Angel's.

This Season
Connor is happy.
Gunn accidently betrays Fred (I don't know how, didn't see it).
Fred is killed and her body taken over by yet another higher power (that's why she's blue).
Gunn is now in a demon dimension (didn't see that either).

I am very sad to see Angel go...

What a great smile!

Nick is doing well and isn't in any serious danger right now, thank heavens! He's fixing fiber optic stuff so we're hopeful that it will help his future.

I rarely watch network tv, but I surfed into channel 7 (abc I think) and they had the pictures and names of our dead. I watched for as long as I could stand it. I want to say something to those families, but what could I say that would help? Nothing I think, but I am glad that the networks are making us aware of who they are.

Nick is now in Afghanistan. I was so relieved to hear it with all the fighting in Iraq right now. He is tired, but he says it's better than Camp New York. There is a phone for every 10 soldiers instead of every 50. My prayers go to Ryan. I will pass this on to Nick next time he calls.

Thanks for the Camel Spider pic! The universal reaction is Oh-My-God!

I want them all to come, but especially my Nick.

I love the Triffid series!

Also Dune... By the time I was 20 I had read Dune at least 7 times. I credit Dune, Lord of the Rings, Ivanhoe, and Ben Hur as most influential in shaping my moral & ethical character. I was fascinated by those books and read them over and over. Authors like Heinlein, Asimov, Niven... made me think, though I always felt a little inadequate when reading Heinlein, I can't do regular calculus in my head, never mind Tensor Calculus - what is Tensor Calculus?

Thanks for the tip about Charles DeLint I'll look him up! You might like The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. The first one in the series is Storm Front. Harry Dresden is a private detective specializing in magical phenomenom. His ad:

Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.

The books are very like the golden age of detective fiction (Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler...) but with a sense of humor and magic!

I, of course, love Black Adder and Fawlty Towers. Also,

The Young Ones
The Manor Born
Good Neighbors
As Time Goes By
The Blue Line

and recent favorites

My Hero

Supposedly American TV was trying to recreate Coupling, but it was and abysmal failure. But it was nice to see one of the guys from it in Pirate of the Carribean.

Oh! Oh! I know this one! (However, if I'm wrong please someone correct me so as not to confuse Annabelle). BTW if you own a Mac forget all this and ask for more help.

1. Do you mean the pictures are on your computer? If not go to end.
2. If yes, click on browse button right under the emoticons.
3. It will open up to the last folder you upload anything from, probably My Documents or within My Documents, My Pictures.
4. Find the pic you want and click on it to select it then click on open or double-click to upload.

I think that's it, but I can't remember...

If the picture is still on the camera we'll have to know if you upload to your computer or to your printer. If it's the latter you probably can still put it in your computer, it will just take some figuring out.

Speaking of emoticons, how do you use them? Is there an ettiquette?

Very Good Looking!

Being a Marine must be very serious business... none of them are smiling.

I can see why you are very proud of him!

Thanks Knight!

Yes to tagging along on the Enterprise.
No to listening Hitler, I agree on principle, but yech!
Yes to traveling on a clipper ship or at least watching them come into Boston Harbor.
Yes to Battle of Hastings, Stirling Bridge, Runnymede 6/10/1215, Waterloo, Signing of the Declaration of Independence, Dealy Plaza 11/22/1963.
No to Culloden, Crucifixion, Alamo,...
Yes to Lincoln Memorial 8/28/1963 (MLK's I Have a Dream), Gettysburg 11/19/1863 (for the Address, not the battle).

Also, I like to see one of Shakespeare's plays at the Globe Theatre (or is it one of Marlowe's plays? subject for another forum!)
Listen to Liszt and Chopin and Rachmaninoff, ...
Punt on the river Thames in the 1800's.
Go to a ball (before the Victorian era, I couldn't wear a whalebone corset!)
Go to a London nightclub in the '20s
Ride to the hounds (riding lessons would be necessary)
Go to Paris with a lover between the Wars (Hemingway's Paris).

Of course I'd want to experience these things as a member of the upper class!

I have been avoiding all newspapers lately, but the Fallujah tragedy got through my self-imposed censor. I can't and don't want to try to imagine what the families of those poor men are going through. I of course pray I don't ever find out...

Nick is in the 67th Signal Battalion out of Fort Gordon. They are still at a temporary camp so I don't know where to send stuff now. But I've got a bunch of stuff waiting to go! Oh yeah, I'll add Wet Ones, unscented I suppose. But I remember the first shopping trip I went with Nick after he moved out. He paid particular attention to the smell of the dryer sheets so as to pick one the girls would like. I hope his fiancee appreciates his attention to detail...

Pictures, people, pictures! Can we see one of Ryan? What about your son, Shamalama? The picture I posted of Nick shows Camp New York in the background (or did I already say that?).

I add my prayers to yours, Shamalama, that your son stays out of Iraq, to yours, A Shrule Egan, that Matt stays in Kuwait, and to yours, Annabelle, that it's over before he gets there!

Thank you, Thank you so much everybody!!!

I will pass on your prayers and thanks to Nick & his buds. There were 2 things Nick said he needed:

Cheap Sunglasses, plain, non-mirrored, Men-in-Black or Aviator
Lotion, lot's of lotion.

He described being there as like the beach on a windy day, the kind where it's so windy that sand is flying everywhere and everybody packs up and goes home. I thought the description particularly fitting...

I have more stuff to send him, but he doesn't know where he's going to be or when he'll get there, sigh... so I'm waiting for the phone call and keeping my cell phone charged.

Annabelle, I hope for both our son's sakes that the whole mess is over soon. Is it your son who is making you a gramma? For me, it's my daughter and, Thank Heavens!, she and her family live here in Sarasota. Nick & his fiancee plan to move here when he gets out too. I count myself very lucky...

Good luck to your son,

Nick's unit was sent to Iraq this week. They've been in Kuwait since January and I'd hoped that he'd stay there. However, I forgot how wasteful the Army can be. It seems that Camp New York in Kuwait is a holding camp and now Nick is in another holding camp. I should be glad for any time he is not riding around in a Humvee being a target...

Anyway, please add him to your prayers. If anyone wants to send encouragement to his unit, I'll forward it to them. I think it means a lot to them. All of my friends have not only wished him well, but said to tell him thank you. Not everybody supports the US involvement in Iraq (who does?), but I'm still proud of Nick and all the men & women who went because it was their duty to serve.

Attached is a picture of my baby in Kuwait. In the background is the tents in Camp New York.

I too thought long and hard about what I wanted to be called. After all I'm a very sophisticated person... Then Chloe chose. I'm Gwamma, wait I forgot the emphasis she places on the appellation, "GWAMMA!!!"

I am very proud to be Gwamma!

In Sunny Sarasota it is Pollen/Allergy season all year round. It is not a good place to live if you have allergies. Or even sometimes if you don't - I don't have any allergies. At least that's what 2 doctors and about 100 pinpricks on my back for their tests say. And yet I still get the sniffles...

Chloe, my 2 1/2 year granddaughter, is the center and the essence of all that is important to me. The best thing though is how completely focused you can be with your grandchild. When I colored with my children I thought about dinner, the bills, the bump on their knee..., the thousand and one things that seemed so important at the time. When I color with Chloe the only thought in my head is what color she wants to use next. As much as you anticipate this, it will be 10 times better!

During my 5 years as a quality manager at a metal stamping plant, I found out why converting is such a big deal. For the toolmakers, the prima donnas of metal stamping, .358 of an inch is a visual physical reality. You and I might have to get a ruler to know how big that is, but they just know. And they know how each dimension works with the others in the 4 dimensional puzzle presented by metal stamping presses. I have a lot of respect for toolmakers.

On the other hand, they do need to convert. All automotive is metric so our engineer had to convert each print. Not only was it more work, but it was another place mistakes could be made. I had a devil of a time convincing him that he had to convert into the tolerance. Anyway, I voted 10 years so all those who actually work with dimensions can adjust.

I remember trying to get some quiet time by sending them to clean their room. I didn't actually care IF they cleaned their room -- but they would play really quietly so I wouldn't find out they weren't cleaning. Cleaning their room replaced nap time where we all pretended that they were sleeping instead of playing.

Sarasota doesn't have a train - that sounds like so much fun. But isn't it time for easter egg coloring? Or don't you do that?

Love the dragon! Great job.

A friend of mine originally made my avatar for my personal business cards. He said it suited my personality. As my name is a sort of teutonic mermaid and I have around a thousand books I think it fits.

Great pic!

There is a Dali museum in St. Pete (about an hour's drive). I am due to visit it again as I've not been there in years. I'll look and see if that's one that they have.
