Speaking of inscrutable sales taxes on food, why is it that, in my state at least, a single candy bar from the display at the checkout lane is taxable, but a six-pack of the same candy bar from the snack aisle is non-taxable? Is it because a single candy bar is non-food junk, but six of them makes a well-balanced meal?

You can hear them snoring in the garage whilst you are working in the office? You have the hearing of a hound.

The birds may be out but the dogs are in. It's rainy here and they're warm enough in the garage, but they're good company. It's a nice afternoon to be working on something in the office or the dining room and have the gentle snoring of dogs nearby. :)

The birds are out! The birds are OUT! The storm must be near it's end. They must have internUt and saw the Environment Canada radar. Rather odd that the pressure 99.4 kPa and the tendency is downward. I wonder if the birds saw that. Anyway, birds are better than weather sites.

Amos, the relevant Canadian statute defines "cold" as "relative to the core temperature of the Sun, that is, the hot glowing thing in the daytime sky which orbits around the Earth and which disappears every night so that the fickle Moon can shed her light except 'way, 'way up North where it shines or doesn't six months of every year, as the King or Queen permit."

What? No 13% tax when cold? Is this a Canadian government thing?

Don't shoppers cluster around the window watching the thermometer, waiting for that last degree of thermal surrender so they can save that 13% the minute the government-designated degree artrives that is Official Cold?

Doesn't this make everyone crazy?

No wings today. I looked outside at 6:30 and thought, "I have a four wheel drive but not the inner drive I need to deal with that crap." Oh well, I'm doing better than the pigeons. I ponder why one of them has been sitting on the power feed to my house for three hours when there is a line of pine trees just 20' away.

I stocked up for the storm. Got tammorrah cased without going anywhere. But, The Real Atlantic Stupidstore has 20 chicken wings for $10 so I might go there REALLY early (they are open 24h) to see if they have any cold wings(no 13% tax when cold) if the storm doesn't get too bad too early. I am struggling to get back to pre-Kissmeass weight so the wings are fer Mum. If they have lots, I'll probable buy a shitload to freeze. And then not lose any more holiday weight... but it's what I do. Sigh. Six pounds gained overall. Three gone so far but I got three more to lose and it's tough getting a walk in when the street is laden with s***.

Do I look fat in this thread?

Sounds like a Call Of Doodie but, just in case yer not pullin Mom's leg, thanks to all the brave men and women who stood between Earth and the savage alien scum.

Zero Celsius + sunny + no wind = snowstorm coming

At least it's not a bombogenesis so we have time to prepare for the next killer storm that wasn't. Sigh.

Last night the Idaho Legion was called out to repel an Alien Invasion in Northern Idaho. As can be seen from the photo both landing and support craft circled overhead, turning the night sky green with their hellish exits from hyperspace. We fought bravely against their ray guns and subsky torpedoes (the photographer didn't make it, services will be this weekend) and by virtue of sheer guts, grit, perseverance, and courage the invasion was thwarted. Outnumbered though we were, Earth was saved from being ground under the hooves, boots, claws, flippers, pseudolimbs, and other appendages of the minions of some horrible (albeit unknown) BEM ruler.

No, no need to thank anyone. It was Our Duty.

The USFS in western Nevada identified what they thought was the oldest known living bristlecone pine, so they cut it down to count the rings. Let's hope someone doesn't have an equally cockeyed idea about saving a sample of this fox.

Wow!!!

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The first confirmed sighting of a rare Sierra Nevada red fox in Yosemite National Park in nearly a century has been confirmed by park officials.

Park wildlife biologists who were on a backcountry trip to the far northern part of the park documented two sightings since early December.

The Sierra Nevada red fox of California is one of the rarest mammals in North America, with likely fewer than 50 left.

The nearest verified occurrences of Sierra Nevada red foxes have been in the Sonora Pass area, north of the park, where biologists say a small population was first documented in 2010. Prior to that, the last verified sighting of a Sierra Nevada red fox in that area was two decades ago. The species hasn't been seen in the park in nearly 100 years.

While I was traveling in Tibet
I heard a Renaissance motet
sung by a talented octet.

I tried to catch it on cassette
but my recorder had got wet
and wouldn't work. I was upset.

So, if you're traveling in Tibet
and hear a Renaissance motet
sung by a talented octet,

don't use an old-fashioned cassette.
Record it on compact diskette,
or smartphone, even better yet.

I like motets. Big... small... no matter... I like em all. It's in my jeans.

The quality of mercy is not strained.

It droppeth as the gentle snow from heaven

Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed:

It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.


Wellll, I wish that him that gives would take it the fuck away. I hurt my back taking it away this morning and I still have more to take away.

I'd say "with apologies to Billybob" but he don't help me shovel. The bastard.

BTW... it's still falling, albeit far more gently than yesterday.

Well! The very idea! Taking a sweet and innocent song like that and putting in bawdy lyrics and setting it to music that is, to say the least, secular. The time that that song was created was one of holy piety, respect for both secular and ecclesiastic authority, and gentility. Humph!

Shame's kinfolk were kicked out of West by God Virginia for being ugly and having bad teeth (among other bad things). His familial, genuine UGLY is bred in the genes for many, many generations. At least one in every generation looks like that baby. They were cursed in 673 by St. Patrick, who thought he'd driven all the snakes from Ireland.

Moab (/ˈmoʊæb/; Moabite: -- Mʾb; Arabic مؤاب Mu'āb; Hebrew: מוֹאָב, Modern Mo'av Tiberian Môʼāḇ ; "seed of father"; Greek Μωάβ Mōav; Assyrian Mu'aba, Ma'ba, Ma'ab; Egyptian Mu'ab) is the historical name for a mountainous strip of land in Jordan. The land lies alongside much of the eastern shore of the Dead Sea. The existence of the Kingdom of Moab is attested to by numerous archeological findings, most notably the Mesha Stele, which describes the Moabite victory over an unnamed son of King Omri of Israel.[1] The Moabite capital was Dibon. According to the Bible, Moab was often in conflict with its Israelite neighbours to the west.

Ain't it cosmic ironical that the Mother of all BS derives from a Tiberian word for "seed of the Father"? The human psyche is so fucked up, really!

I can't find a real St. Kermit, but there IS a Saint Kessel.

Son of the king of Cashel, Ireland, Kessel grew up a pious child, and was known as a miracle worker. Missionary bishop to Scotland in the area of Lennox and southern Perthshire, working from Monk's Island in Loch Lomond. May have been martyred at Bandry, Scotland, but records are unclear. His name was used as a battle cry by the Scots, and the Kessog oil field in the North Sea is named after him.

Aren't you glad to know this? There is also a St. Brogan: St. Brogan 7th. century. Abbot of Ross Tuirc, Ossory, Ireland, he is called the author of a hymn to St. Brigid. Feast day September 17. Others of the name (Broccan, Bracan, Brogan) and of the sixtgh or seventh century are venerated on Jan. 1. Apr. 9, June 27, July 8 and Aug. 25 (who has nothing to do with shoes. Aint't no St. Bruce.

No St. Maggie, lots of St. Margarets. Then there's Saint Magdalene of Nagasaki who was born in 1611 as the daughter of a Christian couple martyred about 1620. With the arrival of the Augustinian Order, Magdalene served as an Augustinian lay sister or tertiary, interpreter and catechist for Fathers Francis of Jesus Terrero and Vincent of Saint Anthony Simoens.

Of course, Amos was a prophet and Michael means "Who is like God."
