Hi FC ! In addition to the great food, I love the store at CB. Who knew the penny candy I enjoyed as a kid is now nostalgic?

<quoted text>Hi Quinny ... I am pleased to tell you that Leigh and I will be attending the Nutcracker on December 15th at 2pm at the Long Center for Performing Arts in Austin ... I was able to get the tickets I was shooting for ... they are PERFECT seating ... great acoustics, great viewing ... am so excited ... oh, to get dressed up, make-up and all for such an event at this time of year for the holidays ... it's just so exciting ... yet again, Leigh rolls her eyes at me ... I have "drag" her out ... I tell her it's only once a year ... she says, "it's EVERY year, Flower" ... she's so funny ... I told her but it's not every year that Keith Richard and Mick Jagger are on Letterman for the TOP TEN so stay up late tonight and watch Letterman ... she just laughs at me, LOL ... I'll be thinking of you Saturday afternoon ...

Hope you've been well ... Take it easy, stay well ... Catch you around the corner ... Laters, Quinny! FC <3 ...
I have no doubt you'll enjoy the production and isn't always nice to get 'prettied up' once in a while?!? Keith and Mick? Wow! Sadly these days I'm not staying up late enough to catch Letterman. Where's TiVo when I need it?

Enjoy! And I'm glad to hear you're doing so much better health wise. That's fantastic news...

I'll admit I've never had children but my understanding from friends is that morning sickness is not just in the morning and some women experience it throughout the entire pregnancy.

Pure speculation but it is also my understanding the miscarriage is quite common in the first trimester. Perhaps there was something of greater concern than morning sickness. Some things should still be kept private even for celebrities and heads of state.

<quoted text>I have always hated the idea of practical jokes .. I was not supporting them with my previous comment .. I was just pointing out that it is very rare for a practical joke to lead to a suicide ...

But I do know that victems of practical jokes resent the people who did it to them, people have lost freindships over them, people have had falling out with family over them ...

Some people consider them "sport" and some people think it develops a tough skin ...

I say, why inflict hurt on purpose? People who do practical jokes are just a wee bit sadistic, IMO
I would agree with you. Sometimes one man's joke is another man's insult....or worse.

<quoted text>in rare cases it can be quite bad ... here is a link and an excerpt from the article

"Cheryl Harrison, 34, was nine weeks into a planned second pregnancy when she decided she couldn't continue any more, and had a termination. The reason? Morning sickness so severe it made her vomit more than 25 times a day, and left her unable to care for her toddler."

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/j...

My wife had it pretty bad but not as bad as this .. but she did book several days off work 3 or 4 times in her first trimester. The second was not so bad but in the third trimester she had regular heartburn .... for the only time in our marriage I was OK with her bitchness while she was pregnant.
Yet another reason why if men had to endure pregnancy the human race would be extinct!

Have a splendid day yourself, FC! I got into GH after some of the charactors from One life to live came over... things have been a bit more interesting since then. Since i've been back to work, I don't see it until 9 pm eastern time.

Hi Falcon, warm wishes,

When I saw you around, I thought
I just must send this..
dyu remember when we had all the fun
back on '07, I wrote this back then
for the fun, I omitted any other
names making allowances for situations
that change over time.

Enjoy..

ODE to Falcon..
by Grace Nerissa:

**********

" Falcon rises early, he's up with the lark,
opens the office 6.30pm sharp

Goes on line to see what's new
While the kettle's getting ready
For a nice pot of brew.

'X' his princess reigns supreme,
She has poor Falcon locked in a dream.

He has other 'cyber' girlfriends,
Amongst them El and Vee...
Vee lines up he jokes whilst El provides the tea!

He charms us with srories of fancy fast cars-
music - movies and yesterday's stars.

Falcon has to work a very long day,
Sometimes he has to
for a little extra pay.

But late in the afternoon he closes up shop
Saying "Goodnight' lovely ladies,
I'm off before I drop!

When he goes home, the wife makes tea
And says >

'Hey! Here! listen, lad
now it's YOU and ME'

"QUIT your dreaming
of those ladies on he Net
or I'll give you a SLAP you won't forget !

AND what is this?
You're sulking
You haven't said a word??"

"NO" said Falcon!

"IM JUST SHAKEN ... NOT STIRRED''!!

Then he relaxes with a drink or two
And listens to his music -
- old and the new.

That brings us nicely to another day's end
In the life of James Bond/Falcon >
Our CHERISHED cyber friend(:"

Happeeeeeee TWOSday, El, Grace, Quinn, Deer Whisperer, Tony, etc etc etc. El and Grace, I have been following the story of those 2 DJS who pranked on that nurse. Lots of stories surfacing and in my opinion, she killed herself,lf because she took her job very seriously. Having betrayed a confidence, through no fault of her own, but she was devestated from the results. in the New York Post the DJS were quite stoic, having said that to kill herself over a joke, it had to be more then that, a troubled past, emotional issues, and I do not agree with their assessment. They got suspended but they need to get more then that. Just my opinion. Hope all animals are doing great, El, are you sick of the Macaroni and Cheese yet? ha ha ha.
Vee...as you say...also because she may not have recognised a truly
bad impression of the English accent, herself being Indian, but it
says a lot for her, that she was sufficiently conscientious to take
it to heart, although it was hardly worth her life, that had to be the straw which broke the camel's back.
I think it's terrible the manner in which the dj's are being held responsible, as everything they did was recorded first, and passed by a higher authority. They are taking the rap imo.
Mac Cheese? Santa musta forgot! Just as well, I have completely gone off the idea now, homemade tastes better after all.

I believe this has been ansered Flower...but just to add, that the
Royal physician must have deemed a spell in hospital worthy, perhaps due
to the severity of Kat'es sickness, and also the fact that it is her first baby and she is in her thirties. A precaution.
I was fortunate not to experience anything like it, in fact I carried on working as a fashion model well into my fifth month.

Interesting post Vee,
re the two DJ's... yes indeed it has gone
right round the world and they are devastated,
especially the female who cannot stop crying,
the interviewer said to her
"you know you might have to appear at the
inquest, then you'll have to face her whole family'
she replied
"I'll do ANYTHING it takes if it helps"
I really think they're getting very bad press even
threats, like you say, Vee,
there MUST HAVE BEEN other issues..
and question answers itself,
the 2 DJ's were out for a quick laugh,
and if they had the least idea it would end in such
tragedy the wouldn't have gone near it!
As was pointed out Grace, there were those who thought this extremely
funny before the tragedy occurred...double standards there.

In all of this also, am left wondering how the nurse who actually gave
the information came out of it all. Not, I hasten to add, she should feel any way to blame, I myself feel as though it has been blown up
out of all proportion by the tragic reaction of the deceased nurse.
The dj's did not for a moment, think their enquiries would be actually answered.

By the time you get this Lady El ... it will be morning as it is 2124 on Tuesday night ... I am very well, thank you! FINALLY!... Have been doing a full workout at the gym back to 3-4 times a week, cardio, weight machines and free weights ... all is good ... no running out of breath or anything like that ... dropped by docs today to pick up an unrelated prescription and she checked my lungs quickly and it's all good!... Thank you for your concern ... Now, what's this about a pain in YOUR neck?... Did you sleep wrong or something? Is is chronic neck pain from earlier years? Hope it resolves itself soon ... I had the neck fusion at C5-6 3/11/11 so I'll have the chronic neck thing but I find the exercise helps a lot ... when it acts up moist heat helps ... I also have a TENS unit 2011 model which I love ... haven't had to use it since my auto injury of 8/7/11 resolved and then the slip and fall on the marble fall of 5/5/12 resolved ... man, I'm just an accident waiting to happen, huh?... goodness, lol ... Hope you get to feeling better ... I went looking for Boardwalk Empire yesterday and I guess last week was the season finale ... Season finale of Sons of Anarchy last week, too ... Justified is season premiere is next month so at least have that to look forward to ... Hope your Wednesday is a good one ... Hope P is well and the kittens are spry and looking good, too! Enjoy your day and have a smile on me ... Love and arms around you! FC <3 ...
VERY briefly Flower...I slipped a disk in my neck some years ago out walking the dogs, was on a hilly bank and the Rott pulled me over.
It flares up now and again if I have been carrying to excess.
Next week is the finale of Boardwalk....Margaret and the kids have left...Nucky has decided not to run away, to fight in his corner.....
did I mention 'Al Capone' is actually a Mancunian (from my home town)
who knew?!...<3
