God bless higher co2 levels :) What is so funny is all the hype about solar energy. Now there are places that make perfect sense to use solar power but England isn't one of them. Were I hunt in Dumas there are lots of huge wind mills and they produce a great deal of energy and that is because it is a windy place. The bad thing is they kill lots of birds . I am for using all kinds of energy be it coal or wind or sun
On the contrary. I built my house in Ohio in the wintertime. Ohio only gets about 4 days a year of bright sunshine. While I was building the house without a heating system, my master bedroom was very comfortable due to the large sliding glass door on the south side. I finished the house with a
(5) panel Lennox domestic hot water system. If I changed the plumbing around, I could make steam. Everything worked efficiently up until I lost the house in a divorce.

I just recently heard of "Polar Snap" and "Polar Vortex." I always thought an "Alberta Clipper" was a sailing vessel.

We are warm here in Tennessee, the home of Al Gore. We profit from the warmth of his political hot air and the Gamma Rays reflecting off his bald head.........I think he had a rock band in high school. "Al Gore and the Algorhymes."

It will all turn out good Tony

Good morning El and all in the kitchen. They had a newsman in Chicago throw a hot cup of coffee in the air and it turned into snow before it hit the ground. That is way to cold : )

Sounds hopeful Tony, the fact that they re-assured you yesterday. The CT scan
was more than likely in the pipeline anyway, as back up to the scan, but I would be
feeling the same, thinking 'uh uh, they found something' when it is very probably just
procedure. No doubt about it, they are looking after you!
Fingers crossed tomorrow and keep your chin up....:)

'Afternoon Denny......WOW, how cold is that? There was a bloke on Sky News this
morning demonstrating how his tee shirt froze within a minute of being put outside...
the when he brought it indoors it was brittle and he could tear it like paper.
It's making me cold thinking about it, lol. How are you faring in Texas?

I love Jimmy Durante and love that song.

Also the link you posted a while ago, John Lennon being
my favourite Beatle. I was astounded that Jim Carey had
such a wonderful voice, who knew, thanks for that.

Vee, I am sorry about your loss. I haven't been around in a while. The last news I heard about Dennis was a pistol pack at the airport. What a great actor. My condolences.

Good evening/morning, Kitchen-eers!

I'm plowed out and dug out now, and rarin' to get around when need be. Cabin fever was starting to make me itch.:)

I started a read: Life On The Mississippi by Mark Twain. This one I had not got around to reading before. Early, it's a historical overview that includes the discovery by the first European, De Soto in the mid 1500s. Then there are the exploration by Marquette and Joliet, and then a later expedition and "conquer" for France by acclamation by La Salle.

All the while, Twain writes of the perspective regarding European historical events during the time lapse pertinent to the events on the Mississippi River.
----------

Did ya all know that a Chicago zoo had to keep its polar bear inside in these recent days?

About 500 Amtrak train passengers were stranded in the boonies outside of Chicago because of ice and drifted snow.

Saw the BBC news about the many villages isolated by flooding in Somerset region of England. And that weather throughout the Auld Isles.

R.I.P to the lives lost in the the crash of the helicopter out of LakenHeath Air Force Base.

I "won" 2 paperback books in a charity raffle during the feast I attended a week before Christmas. Besides the Mark Twain one posted about, the other is "Enslaved by Ducks", the author chronicling his experience of raising ducks.

Probably a fun read, if it's anything like a documentary film I have seen called "My Life As A Turkey" where a guy hatched some turkey eggs and become their "mother".

That's understandable ... it would unnerve any of us. It's assuring for them to be thorough, right?

And kudos on your good scan! Cheers Admir-able!!

With utmost respect to an aquatics guy, and having familiarity with small dredges, plankton nets, man-hauling a small trawl, running gill nets, electrofishing, and processing the contents for all that gear; plus seining for crawdads as bank structure preservation:

I get a "tickle" reading about fish, or fry ... and "breading".:)

Happy New Year, Brigitte,
hope it will prove to be a better one than 2013.
Tough that ALZHEIMERS..
wishing you the best in dealing with it.
You mention M04,
I just found in life it is very difficult nigh impossible to see properly
into another person's life and get the full true picture
seen from all angles, therefore
I'll leave judgment to a higher order.
M04 had a very difficult time,
we all know why here, no point in rehearsing it again...
and if she did indulge in the little comforts of life
who can blame her.
I know for sure had I been visited with her particular cross,
and all that it entailed -
I sure wouldn't have been half the woman she turned out to be,
in dealing with it.
However, may she Rest in Peace now.
Take care in the inclement weather B...
I have thought about this post regarding Jeannie for days now almost a week or two now ... Just wanted to say I appreciate it ... Gives me great comfort knowing she was not judged in anyway, shape or form but was just known as the gentle true loving woman that she was ... Thanks for posting ... I copied and posted on another thread that I felt had to be shown for all intents and purposes ... it was on a need to know basis ... FC
