    we regulars had a stake in the original ebaY Q&A. here we are missing the newbies, the trolls, the tricky technical questions, the Personalities, the glue that held it all together. [i still have my award certificate for community service]

    i miss those days. remember Skippies? the networker wars? edfan was a trip;)

    whoops, another icon malfunction. i’ll figure it out.

    i did Not go to the hospital. i have herbs for the pain. i just turn on some 8 hour electronica/sleep type musics and stay to myself. sometimes i’m too grouchy for Anyone;)

    today i am grateful for some time off from from Ouchland, jimmy dean breakfast sammiches with frank’s redhot, and the knowledge that my computer problems will soon be a thing of the past.

    a. e. vanvogt is one odd sci-fi writer. 1952. mission to the stars. 28 pages in and he has already set up a conflict across 15,000 years and the Universe thanks to time travel gimmick. female imperial starship captains. video call answering machines. named the “Astra”? a third secret race born from the mating of man and machine made possible via the “cold fusion process”. and the plot thickens. the retro-camp style will have you firing the laff-thrusters all over the joint.

    well, I think it’s fun…

    let’s see…it was only a hunnert miles, uphill both ways. “a penny saved is a penny earned.”

    there is only one pair of ducks nesting at the park just now. when paul drake detects interlopers he flies a preemptive strike. bites em on the butt. they go zoom! aerial comic menagerie.

    i got an early 19th century reed+barton silver-plate ice water/lemonade pitcher today. eastlake/aesthestic/nouveau decoration. weighs 5 1/2 lbs. won’t bring a lot of money but it is Cool. [pun intended]

    got an antique plush clockwork doggie too. i put some wd-40 in her vital parts with the little sprotzer. she now walks and moves her head back and forth.

    i like junk!

    depending how “adieu” is delivered it seems to mean either good bye or good bye forever. i’m not sure.

    i went to a church rummage sale today. much confusion at checkout. [including me] i got home and thought back onnit. counted my money. same as when i left.

    i hadn’t paid them!

    i went back and paid, the sisters were so surprised. they didn’t have a clue. i was the first person to ever do that.
