Never heard of it, SLACK.

Have looked up polar vortex though. Early this week, I watched Al Roker with NBC News/ Today Show respond to writers of emails / social media that claim media makes this stuff up. He had a college text/glossary of weather terms first printing 1959 that included polar vortex.

Here's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_vortex

The polar vortex was first described as early as 1853.[5]

This is footnote #5: "Air Maps", Littell's Living Age No. 495, 12 November 1853, p. 430.

this is the page 430 with a highlight half way down the left column:

Hi Denny ... you know me, hit and run, lol ... I love Lady El and think the world of her as I said in a post last night somewhere, I hold her in high esteem is what I think I said ... Jeez, I've slept since then ... I don't talk politics and/or religion ... I agree to disagree with one main poster on very many subjects and am extremely disappointed with 3 regular posters here that I'd rather just "hit and run" ... Some things are better left unsaid ... it would further just cause controversy and this is NOT the forum to do that ... While I do forgive, I never forget" even with my ever failing memory ... It's just better for all concerned ... I
Prayers for Tony ... Hello to Franko who I've always thought was a sweetheart ... IDK what became of Quinny ... Pffft ---> Happy New Year and thanks for your candor in a most assertive manner, I like that ... I've forgotten some of the other names but, like I said, failing memory ... MH, I love you and thanks for being my friend for all these years, Jeannie, a friend also and I'll miss her dearly as she was a fighter and withstood a lot in her short life no matter what anyone says of her, May she Rest In Peace ... I could go on and on but I best just stop here as I've got to get going ...

Hello FC... what an interesting post, as the number of regulars in here number so few; and in light of :

#32231 "Water under the bridge ... a new day, a new beginning ... Peace ~ FC <3"

Bending Simon & Garfunkel a bit: "Like a bridge over murky waters ... " the murky waters of Offbeat indeed. To traverse them, I rely on my internal and spiritual Secchi disc. It's held me in good stead. As with the Mississip', you can't always stay out of dark water, but you can avoid the darker waters when you can.

SLACK can tell you that a Secchi disc is not an Italian plate/dish.

Have a great day and weekend!

Strong character that fellow you mention Franko, he overcame huge obstacles with
his strength of mind. Good to hear.
At the time it was 3 years after my wife had her accident. His story gave me hope that my wife could possibly have such a recovery, but sadly that did not happen. Her injury was a diffuse brain injury, and a full recovery is extremely rare from that.

I'll miss her MH..in spite of voicing my feelings elsewhere. I remember her absolute
joy at her son's graduation, and again at her daughter's wedding, sent such lovely
photos, then again at the birth of her grandaughter. Her pleasures were the
simple things in life.....as it should be.
I think the only controversy was the point of view people had about her son's case ... some people felt she was right to defend him to the end, others thought she should have "admitted the truth" and let the courts/police take him away.

i think most mothers would want to defend their child as best they can ... she did what she felt, in her heart, was the right thing. She would have been equally vilified by a different group if she had not defended him. SHe was in a no-win situation, with regards to public opinion.

what they need to be bent about in the naming of winter storms by "The Weather Chanel", guess the westerners got jealous about hearing all those named storms on the Gulf

I saw Al and he looked upset by the whole deal

Good evening, Cuz El.
One of the airman was from Indiana. Good on ya about the music.
http://www.theindychannel.com/news/local-news...
... that Matthews survived both wars in Iraq, only to die in a training exercise. He was due to come home in March following a 20-year Air Force career.
Good Morning Cuz Luke.

He was on the last lap so to speak, that's really sad that he should die in a training
exercise. Sod's Law. I feel for his children on both sides of the pond, family
included.
Oddly enough there was another helicopter crashed with five crew members killed,
around the same time, this one in Norfolk...but in the USA. I forget which State it
was.
Very sad indeed.

'Morning Franko.
There is always hope, you tend to cling to that while there is life.
So sorry your wife did not make it.
It's surprising how life goes on with those of us left behind, I dare say
having children spurs us on.

Good morning El and all my friends. I saw Lone Survivor yesterday. It was a very good film. The audience applauded at the end of the movie. That is rare

So they say.....snow next week to look forward to, oh well, the treasures will still be
there when the weather bucks up, lol.
Keeping my fingers crossed for a win by Manchester United this afternoon, two major
players out for weeks, new manager and all, hope they do well for Moyes sake.
Hope also that things stay calm in Tottenham later.

I must look out for that movie Denny, if it's that good, hoping to see The Railway Man
early in the week. Quite fancy The Wolf of Wall Street too.
Trouble here is the cinema complex is such a distance....when I lived in Cheshire, England
it was a 2 minute walk away.
