Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

My great Aunt Dorothy passed away last night. Her kids, me and Rob and my mom were all with her, and I was singing to her.
She had the flu and then I guess she got pneumonia...I'm not positive on that but I know she got better Wednesday/Thursday and then got really sick yesterday.

I didn't think she'd make the year, but I didn't expect this to happen so fast.

So thank you all for the well wishes on her 100th last month. She really got a kick out of all the attention. :)

May her way home be swift
And may she find her peace there.

It's good to know she got a kick out of her 100th. birthday.


eta... My Christmas got extended today. :D
I received a card from Isildilme.
I think the post office must have just found in hiding somewhere.
But it's cool. I just love her cards.

Thanks, Isil!!!

But maybe someday Science can find a way to make the weekends go by slower.

Such Knowledge

Postby prmiller » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:03 pm

I am in awe of those who use
the simple digits naught to nine,
then adding other symbols fly
to realms that seem as if divine.
Adding, squaring, cubing...more!
subdividing further still,
stretching out in endless strings,
numerals that awe and thrill.
Then take theorems and apply
these principles to simple things,
make potatoes power a clock,
hurl a tube that flies like wings!
Numbers wed to principles,
Much how words make poetry,
oh, such knowledge, oh what art!
Such a splendid coterie!

Blessings,
Parm :)
When all around is infant green,
and springtime mud baths soon are seen...
[A picture that would take up too much space
here, but is fun to see...there!]

Hello and a very Belated happy New Year!!!!

I so wish I could get on this site at work (though I'm sure the workplace is glad I can't).

Hope everyone had good holidays! (and please accept my apologies for not getting caramels to everyone). Cock Robin....are you at the same address as long ago? I am making one last batch at the end of the week and I can send you out a box. I actually sent out more packages this year than any year to date but I switched it up to some people I haven't sent to in the past and I cut out many of the international ones. One of the biggest problems with international is that the post office now has to manually type in all the information and it takes forever. I sent out three in one trip and ten minutes later I was done....and I thought the line of over 15 people behind me were going to stab me (and the they have almost tripled the cost). :shock:

Huge hug to all.....gotta run but I will be back (be afraid!) :rofl:

That's one of those goofy songs I just love. The poor guy who say's the word hated the song... ;)

Frelga? Scribbles? Rwhen? Sil? Sidd? If Imi comes in, I'm passing out. If I saw some of the people from way, way back (elladan? SMOR?)
I'd do...I don't know what!

:D

It's good to see you all. :grouphug:
