  • Pooch1: "Sniper" is a noun.  "Snip" is a verb.  Not funny to be unknowing of the difference in how the two words are treated.

  • Pooch1: 3rd graders learn to double a final consonant preceded by a single vowel before adding 'ing.'  Snipping refers to cutting remarks.  A snipe is a bird.

I miss years ago we could go  nearly every Sat. night we would take our two sons and go to the movies. (we called it family night) sometimes before we would go for pizza or some night we would go to  the ice cream parlor for a soda or sundae after the show. They look forward to us going out together. they were 13 and 7

Gloria de, there may be some families that can do what you used to do, but kids today have so many things thrown at them, not always as important as family nights, but their peers mean more to them than family.  I have often said I was glad I grew up at the time I did because we did things as a family, such as going to the neighborhood movie or even playing outside during the day - all year long.  We didn't have TV and our radio time was around suppertime.  I think for the most part "them days is gone forever".

Good morning Mary Ann and whoever might be looking in now.  It's a cold blustery day here with lots of wind and a lower temperature.  My azaleas have started to bloom and I'm afraid we'll have a killing frost tonight--but hopefully they are hardy enough to survive. 

There was a tornado not far from here on Saturday--in Beauregard which is east of Opelika where Tim and Kris (son and DIL) live.  Tim came by this morning to check on me and said they had no damage.  He helped me with some paper work and then went to the Kroger store near his home in Opelika.  He does most of the cooking at their house.  There was lots of damage in Beauregard--something like 24 homes were severely damaged and some loss of life.  Mother Nature was not good to Alabama yesterday!

I'm having left-overs for lunch, so will get to that shortly.  It's pretty chilly outside, but I'm going to bundle up and at least walk around the block before fixing lunch.

Have a nice day!
Sue

Mary Ann

Sue, I'm glad to see a post from you.  I saw Auburn on a map on the Weather Channel a while ago and thought of you but I had no idea how close the tornadoes were to you.  I am happy you had no damage, also that your son is OK. 

You answered here my question in Norm's B&T.

Good evening, snow did not amount to much.  The day before people were going crazy. Someone said 4 to 8 inches of SNOW I bank in stop and shop, but had a hard time finding a parking place, every register was open and long lines. I was lucky no line in the bank. Next someone will announce Hurricane and there is run on beer and sweets :)

SCFSue, I was worried about you when I heard about the
tornado in Ala. Cyriel had and aunt we stayed in Opelika, the rest of his family lived in the Valley.  He was born in Alex City.

MaryAnn Friday night was the big night when I was growing up.  My friends would come over to the house and my mother would play the piano or she would roll up the parlor rug and play the victrola and we would dance, She also would make hot chocolate.She like to dance also, and lots of Sat. nights she would wear and evening gown and go to a dance at the Elks Club. Of course in the winter there was the basketball games. Of course you end up at one of the ice cream parlors.At my age 95  I feel bad for all the lost family memories if that can be called  agripe, I guess sadly that would be it. memories

My gripe is the foul language in movies - can the writers not think of anything? So depressing - it just ruins a good story.  In my house, nothing was allowed and in my family it was the same.  My favorite story on one son.  He came in the house after playing in the woods with his siblings.  Sulking and mad - I asked him what was wrong.  he said "Well, I have to wash my mouth out with soap because I said a bad word".  I asked him if he needed help and he said no and he did indeed go to the sink and washed his mouth with soap. 

Here is another gripe.  They hired a new weather girl here - she drives us crazy with her arms flapping while walking around and speaking too fast and wants to be "cute".  And, weather (unless it is a real storm) doesn't have to be mentioned three times in the half hour. 

On a roll here - if you do an internet search on insurance, for instance, you will most likely get a phone call really quickly.  We are being tracked all the time. 

I hope everyone is safe with all the poor weather going around.

In four days---Happy Birthday!

I certainly "ditto" this part.  TV in general has taken a dive --- poor audio in total. Squeaky whining voices. mumbling, dropping off at end of sentence, running stuff together.  I think the constant use of texting has made people incapable of normal talking.  Our weather reports have become long scientific dissertations.  Isobars, cold fronts, low pressure fronts, etc, etc. - just tell me, is it going to rain?

My other gripe is about ordering things. Seems most businesses have trouble getting a whole order done with no errors (this would include delivery [which is not part of the company ordered from]).  :tickedoff:   >:(    :tickedoff:

I am getting so fed up with all of these scammers, and all who are trying to attack your emails, your accounts and or where you shop! Then there are the companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo and others who never announced security breaches until someone else announces it months and sometimes years later.

The latest one is a May 28th of last year breach of an Interior Design firm, Houzz. You may have heard of the company when they have specials of stars or other notables using Houzz for decorating their own or someone else's home or property. This breach from last May!?! was only announced March twelfth!?!

I found out my account was breached and even if I only used it to save house and garden photos, the thieves still have my email and the site password. Think of those who purchased through the site and had credit account numbers stolen!
A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury. -John Stuart Mill, philosopher and economist (20 May 1806-1873)
