Is the pool open yet?  It seems wrong to drink my Blue Lagoon indoors.

It's a little chilly for the outdoor pool, but I think we've been keeping the indoor one heated!

Oh yes please! And round one, coming up Pavvy!

Good morning Chatters.

As it's Friday and I'm a good government worker *ahem* I was just catching up on my digital magazines work email and came across this recipe set that I thought you all might like.

Happy weekends!

Me too. People keep saying there are shipments stuck off the coast that are not being allowed to enter port. If I had a boat, I'd be tempted to sail on out and offer to offload that little problem for them.

I have a Crunchie in my purse, but I can't decide if it's the right time to eat it. They are getting hard to find (stoopid Hershey) so I've been saving it.

Afternoon daizy, how's your day going?

Hey Deb - not bad. No motivation to do the government's work, so it's a pretty typical Tuesday;) And yours?

I haz no cookie.  But I did just have chili lime pistachios which were quiet enjoyable.  Nearly lunch time.  Maybe I'll get a cookie.  We'll see what mood I'm in.  Got Milanos at home, could just wait for those too.  Mmmmmmmilanos :)

Lily - who makes such deliciousness? I would love to try those!

By the way, there's a Spring clearance/sock yarn sale right now on the website Little Knits, in case you guys need more yarn;)

They have Malabrigo on sale!  I don't need more yarn, but it's a pretty good deal...

I'll have to look. :)

lmao. shut up. animals eat other animals, I get that. That's fine & natural, but we're not animals so srsly just stop

Yes, humans ARE animals. Perhaps you've not taken a biology class yet? Humans are part of the Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Class Mammalia - same as cows, pigs and that puppy you mentioned. Don't confuse behavior with evolution.

Good morning Chatters :)

I don't particularly feel like representing the man today, so I thought I'd swing by chat to see what was going on. I look like I'm working when I type.

Deborah - I can't fathom black as the color of choice for your scrubs. Talk about setting the tone. I do think the pearl lanyard will be flashy, though!

A sad day, indeed Knowan. He's one of my favorite authors. Did you see his last tweets? Heart-breaking.

Nomo - what nebi-and knowan said :) The Discworld novels are stand alones, but the characters are richer when you've read them in order. (IMO) I highly recommend Good Omens, the book he wrote with Neil Gaiman. It still makes me laugh when I re-read it.

Reading One Hundred Years of Solidude, Heart of Darkness, and Tom Sawyer, all for different things. I'm looking forward to reading some fluff.

Rosencrantz - thanks for posting this! I have wanted to read 100 Years for a while, but keep neglecting to add it to my list. I'm going to do so right now. (And btw, Heart of Darkness is my favorite Conrad book.)

I've seen snow every month of the year many times.  I've seen temperatures drop 50 degrees celcius in a day and go up by 30 degrees celcius 3 days later.  I've seen snowbanks littered with dead mosquitoes that froze and fell out of the sky.

And I am SO SO totally bragging about living with that right now.  :D

Cuz we all know when it's actually happening, I'm a big whiny baby.

:D

Runey - I would love to live in Calgary during July - November. I'm not sure I could handle a Canadian winter. I can barely handle ours here.

It's entirely possible to have a taste of Canadian winter then too. :D

Ooh. I retract my earlier statement, then.

For all you knitters: This was the sweater pattern I had my sights set on when I decided to learn how to knit.  I can't believe I found it again.  Now I'd just settle for being able to knit a hat.  ;)

Pav - that is beautiful! I hope I can learn enough to knit something like that some day.

As usual a mixed batch - I jump between books as I go along, mainly for cross referencing: Golda Meir, the early days (an amazing insight on the formation of the State of Israel with early days of the Middle East question.) Churchill, Sir W.: A History Of The English Speaking Peoples volumes I, II, III and IV. Bryson, Bill: Mother Tongue. Boswell's London Journal 1762 - 1763 and Fukuyama, Francis: The End of History and the Last Man. The last book mentioned is for me the most difficult one to read - it is really a "page by page" challenge - especially because the reader is given the opportunity to question his hypothesis.    

WWWilliam - I love Bill Bryson's books! If you've not read "In a Sunburned Country" yet and enjoy travelogues,  I thoroughly recommend it.

I'm currently reading Chris Hadfield's: An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. It's a really enjoyable read about how his training shaped his thinking and vice versa. It's making me want to change how I approach certain aspects of my work life.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
