  • 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.

JOAN!!!! You'll be the high point of our day! SO good to connect, and thanks to your "middleman", if you use one, too.

If you're raised in an area where there's someone with the sight or an unusual ability, then you accept it for the rest of your life. If you're interested, google Windbridge Institute for a group that tests people who claim psychic abilities. I personally think the ability waxes and wanes, and there are better ways to make a living. But then, no one is beating my door down to get a "reading."

Jackie, good that you went, but Sally's website looked to me like a make-a-buck (euro?) setup. There's an Aussie healer who came to the U.S. a year or so ago to show some MDs what and how he did. Unfortunately, it seems that he had to start from zero with every doctor, and it wore him out quickly. Google Charlie Goldsmith if you're interested. Too bad there are so many Sally Morgans.

Sorry, I don't keep my days straight now that I'm not working.

I'm impressed by the mind over body stories, Patricia. I just thought: we all know how often a doctor will claim an ailment is all in the patient's head. Why do they think a cure can't be in the mind as well?

Jackie, I do look forward to hearing what you experience tonight. Tell us a little about Sally Morgan: I know about a number of U. S. psychics, but in the U.K, David Drew is the only one I can call to mind.

Just discovered Gravitational Wave Astronomy. Don't know how I hadn't read about it sooner.

Also am wondering if any of you know anyone who's had a Near Death Experience: not a close call, but a trip across the border, as it were.

And a joyful good morning to all.

MarilynE, sorry. I phrased my question badly. I need to learn what you all subscribe to, you who use internet streaming. I'm trying to decide if Amazon Prime would be worthwhile.

Oh, Patricia, I knew your daughter had died, but not the circumstances. So sorry. And imagine what Magic read on you all to provoke that cry of despair. Cats and dogs get underrated a lot.

MarilynE, yes, we're still at it, and yes. We've had enough. Most of what we do is TTNR. The extra T is for test, and over 16 years we seem to have been part of a decrease in those awful diseases. Just anecdotal responses from the vets that they're seeing fewer sick cats.

124 cats later, along came Midi. The woman who brought her, along with a raft of "why I can't keep her" stories, called her Midnight. Guess what color. Midi is a stray who behaves like a feral. We've finally given up on trying to housebreak her, and let her live on the porch. She's curly-furred, and happy down to about 20°. Below that, we set up an apartment for her in one of the bathrooms. No adopting out this one.

May I join in?

We've just bamboozled ourselves. When the DISH bill topped $150 without HBO, I bought a refurbed Apple TV; now we don't know what to buy. We tried YouTube to get local channels, and downloaded PBS, of course, but boyoboy are we up for advice.  :idiot2:

Cat #3 some of you may remember from A Place in the Sun's newsletter. (Yes, MarilynE, we're still PitS). Sadé was the kit that Mamadi had to leave behind. Very few trustworthy people want to adopt black kittens, and NO ONE wants a black cat! She's here, just beginning to taper off, and even more demanding than ever. That was 2005.

MarilynE, six of them have house privileges, and the 7th comes in on very cold nights. That's Midi; more about her later.

Patricia, the only fault with my little adopt by internet scheme was that once in a while the adoptee would get adopted for real, making the online adopter very unhappy. Wish I could figure out which cat was "yours" ... info that was lost several computer crashes ago.

Toot is our second oldest, born in 2003; Cree spent a lot of time trying to play with her, but never had much luck. Toot, whose name was Cricket in her beginning, was adopted out once; we're told she hid under an electric recliner and never did come out (they gave her three days to acclimate: can you see my tongue in my cheek?). When we brought her home she went straight to her sand rolling spot, and rolled for ten straight minutes. Honest.

MarsGal, I 've been pondering the possibility that we're on a downhill slope, so that article was timely for me. Many thanks.

Larry, I'm praying for that good heart of yours.

It's time to reintroduce these cats.

Cree, who is our oldest, was rescued from a neighbor's shed in 2003. It was our plan to TTNR her, but when we released her she lay down beside us and refused to go. She's just now over a long bout with a facial abscess, but claims now to be young again.

Six more to go.

Diane and Del Church. She was/is a very likable person. They're still sorting out the dead (getting DNA and such) and the missing. What horror.

Joy, my mother in law bought a rollator via Medicare just two months ago. She had a prescription from her doctor, paid the supplier for the device, and was reimbursed by the supplier when Medicare paid them.

Mary Ann, my calendar says Autumn starts Sunday; of course, it’s a bank calendar ...

They’ve cancelled all sunshine for the Chesapeake Bay until Wednesday, but I’m not daring to complain, since the eye of Florence is right over my aunt-in-law’s rehab center as I type. I hope she’s playing Bingo and not looking out the window.

Patricia, I just read a jaw-dropper about a hermit: The Stranger in the Woods, by Michael Fonkel. By the time I finished it, it was the author I thought was ill-balanced.

Mary Ann, so glad you’re swimming upstream again.

mary Ann, you probably should be afraid of Midi; she’s the one who refuses to be housebroken. She also once climbed 60’ into an oak tree and refused to come down for three days. When she came down, she came just 5’ on the trunk and FELL the rest of the way. I was prepared to get a shovel, but she scampered off to her water dish. Patricia, we’re not sure of her age; she came to us fully grown 12 years ago.

Such a busy week. This morning Java joined me on the bed and encouraged a 10 minute scratch. That's as long as she's stayed since she arrived. Oh, and, like Nikita, she signals her opinions by nipping faces. I paid her back for that by dematting her.

Patricia, that is one gorgeous cat. I showed the picture to Java, who was properly cowed. Did you ever see a cowed cat?

Resizing a picture taken with a iPhone is not impossible, but I’m 79, and would like you to see these cats while I’m still alive. The good news is that it takes really good pictures.
