Post #7849567

Some of us on this forum (like me) have trouble putting people's real names together with their screen names. Therefore, I propose to start a list of real names and screen names.

I'll start. My real name is Carrie.
13turtles = Turtle
BajaBlue = Becky
BirdieBlue = Sheri
BonnieGardens = Bonnie
cando1 = Vickie
carrielamont = Carrie
daisylovn = Tracey
Dave47 = David
defoecat = Bonnie
GardenChick1982 = Becky
garyon = Grayson
IO1 = Susan
kudzu1 = Kay
lovemyhouse = Debra
LysmachiaMoon = Annie
mableruth = Eleanor
poolrunning = Susan
renatelynne = Nada
Ret_Sgt_Yates = Sarge
revclaus = Judith
RickCorey_WA = Rick
Sansai87=Nadine
santacltr2 = Nancy
scraps = Stephanie
seacanepain = Jim
Tplant = Ted
VanGarden = Van


this just happens to be in alphabetical order so far but I can't guarantee future results!

If you want your name added, please say so on this thread or let me know otherwise and I'll be happy to add you. I don't want to presume that anyone wants to be up here without their express say-so.

Now, Sarge, up here we don't call other people's wives "darling," just so you know. A HP shower salesman from VA - great guy - said that to me on the phone once and I about bit his head off. Now he's very careful to call me "Buddy," which is a little weird too. "Carrie" will do fine. We're going to bed because DH just got home and has to get up at 3:30 am for work tomorrow.

It's definitely a southern thing! Up here if someone (especially a guy) calls someone (especially a woman) darling, he's usually half-drunk and looking for something. But I kinds figured that, since Sarge is from TN and all, so I tried to let you down easily.

Sarge, where is that picture taken? TX? AZ? Overseas? Not what I thought TN would look like!

Carrie,
Actually, my screen name is I = me
O = owe
1 = God the only One

Now, the reason I must explain this, is if you go to the member list and look up "101", it isn't me. That person is from Mount Pleasant, MI. This person isn't a subscriber but signed up in 2005. I have people say they Dmail me all the time and I don't reply. So will you please edit and put me in the correct place? :-) I want everyone to know I'm not the number 101. I'd never ignore anyone's Dmails! I didn't know this for the longest of times! Thank you so very much.

Gee Kay, I'm going to have to admit being a very ugly person. I was oakleif on another garden site. And got into a nasty name calling session with two people who i considered jerks. They were always answering questions in a snotty know it all way. I got tired of it and told them what i thought of them and we went back and forth for months, before i'd had enough and came over here. I was amazed at how nice everyone was. AND OF COURSE STAYED. I did regret some of the things i said but not much. I picked my name cause i said i cando better.

Post #8047743

Hey! I didn’t post that second Sansai entry! One of Amargia’s noxious weeds is making sure I remember to logout next time when I’m finished on DG. Hm-m-m, now which one is always calling me “brat”. No Sherlock Holmes needed to solve this mystery. Seacane is a particularly noxious weed, don’t you think? lol. I’ve learned how to turn off and adjust the adaptive equipment on the house computer to suit me. I like using it now. I had to have the hard drive/memory pack replaced on my BRAND NEW laptop. It is up and running again. It didn’t cost me anything became accustom to this computer while it was down though. You can choose your own voice and level of magnification. I can use this system without my glasses.
I manage to put my own twist on that strange Amargia tradition of weedy screen names. A case could be made that many sansai, like blackberries, are noxious weeds. Kudzu could even be considered sansai because you can eat the young leaves and flowers. A thickener can be made from the powdered root that is like arrowroot powder. Dandelions can make a good healthy tea.
Obesity is epidemic for people my age. Doctors are now seeing diabetes and high blood pressure in children and teenagers with no family history of those conditions. I think we’ve bred plants for taste, particularly our sweet tooth, so long that even fruits and vegetables aren’t as healthy as they once were. I believe re-introducing wild plants and heirloom vegetables into our diet it could help. Not to mention its tastier, wild plants usually have a better taste, for example blackberries in the store are huge and have a watered down taste while the blackberries in the swamp are small and have a taste worth getting eaten up by bugs over. I’ve decided to live at Amargia and be my own lab rat.

Nadine, I think it's more to do with our society's reliance on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), wheat flour that is stripped of all nutrients and easy-to-store saturated fats - lard, palm oil, etc. occurring in PROCESSED FOOD, not innocent plants.

Although it's true, they have bred roses with bigger, longer lasting, more petals that never fully open AND don't have a fragrance or thorns because they're easier to pack and ship that way. But not the roses they sell us as plants. These babies are grown in equatorial regions around the world, auctioned in Holland and then shipped to the U.S. through Miami to high end florists.

Yes, that is basically what my doctor says. He agrees that fruits and veggies probably don’t have the vitamin and mineral content they once did. He also said that is like being concerned about the skinned knees you got in the fall when you broke your arm. True, but not the problem that needs immediate attention.
I’m in that growing American category of “overfed, but undernourished.” I’m just tired of choking down iron and vitamin supplements and still failing the doctor’s blood test. Lol.

sansia87 My grand daughter is studying to be a holistic doctor and the more she learns the more she sounds just like you. When I was a kid there just was not the sweet things available. Nor the take outs and quick "meals". The only fast food place really was White Castle and we only went there when my dad got a raise. To celebrate! Another factor is that alot of us no longer have the vegetable gardens that they had back then. The back yards in most suburbs just do not have the room for that. Well I am grouching about something I cannot even fix. Sorry.

Hi, Elenor! Yes, the "overfed, but undernourished" problem in people my age worries more than a few of us. I think you and Carrie are right. It probably has as much, if not more to do with new eating habits than with a lack of nutrients in grocery store veggies. I've started looking more closely at labels, high fructose corn syrup does show up in unexpected places. You would think food processors would avoid that because of possible allergic reactions. Corn is one of those foods a high percentage of people are allergic to,.
I still think organically grown veggies and wild fruits taste the best. My generation may be a little spoiled when it comes to taste. We should probably be called the Foodie Generation. :-) ~Nadine~

carrielamont thank you for the greeting! Isn't it interesting how sometimes we - or at least I - often feel like some of my very best friends are right here on DG and I do not even know their real names! My problem is that I forget which screen names belong to what real name.

Well I do not know what qualifications it takes to be a foody - but I do love to eat. Unfortunatly I love sweets best. I am convinced that the lack of gardens has some,thing to do with the problem. Moms do not stay home and tend the garden then bake cookies. They really have to work, and I also think that most suburban yards are too small for anyone to grow their own produce. I feel out of place in this new world.

There's a line in one of the Alice in Wonderland books that says something about running as fast as you can in order to stay where you are. (I can't remember the exact words.) But, that describes the way I feel sometimes.
Japanese music, clothes and pop culture being popular seems normal to me. But, my grandfather fought in Okinawa in WWII. Seeing one of his GCs wearing a t-shirt with a kanji symbol on it or hearing us sing a Japanese pop song seemed odd to him at first. Now, he smiles, shakes his head and says, "Am I remembering things right? We did win that war, didn't we? lol. ~Nadine~

That is interesting. You are only 23? I am 65! When i was a girl we did not have either a TV or a phone. We played outside all day. When I was playing outside all day I just found something to eat when I got hungry. We had many different kinds of fruit and some veggies. Kids now do not even know that grass hoppers can spit! A real treasure trove of information I am! Can you even imagine a world with no computers? No cell phone? No TV or TV with only channnels 5, 9, and 32? Neither can I. I love that quote. It describes the feeling perfectly.

It's from the caucus race, isn't it? which joke I didn't get until I reread the book as an adult! But yes, and now that some of us have trouble running, running as fast as we can to keep up is even harder.

Forward, backward, inward, outward
Come and join the chase!
Nothing could be drier
Than a jolly caucus-race.
Backward, forward, outward, inward
Bottom to the top,
Never a beginning There can never be a stop
To skipping, hopping, tripping
Fancy free and gay,
I started it tomorrow and will finish yesterday.
Round and round and round we go
And dance for evermore,
Once we were behind
But now we find we are
Forward, backward, inward, outward,
Come and join the chase!
Nothing could be drier than a jolly caucus-race.

And of course in the story they were wet from swimming in her tears, right? But he was really, i think, commenting on politics.

To "Compassion.." or "Still Laughing" I go. Not many "Practical Matters..." to consider until it gets warmer.
I loved the Dodo's musings, but the quote I was thinking about is in “Through the Looking Glass.” Said the Queen. “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”
No, Eleanor. I can’t imagine life without computers. Because I CAN imagine how long it would have taken me to find the location of the above quote without a computer. lol. The creation of the web has got to rank as one of humanities most awesome achievements. I use it on the job, for class work, for play and for socializing with friends.
My father was a holdout when it came to home computers. He thought a computer at home hindered the development of a child’s physical and social skills. After he started having to use a wheelchair to get around when I was a teenager, he embraced computers wholeheartedly.
BTW, I didn’t know grasshoppers spit. You can learn something new every day on DG. :-) ~Nadine~

Welcome, Katherine! You can't be VERY BAD on eBay, well, sometimes you can, but not usually...it's easier at Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel or High Country Gardens to get in trouble. For me, anyway. I get in Big Trouble at Landsend and JC Penney because you can return stuff, and then I forget, and then I own 4 sets of sheets to a bed size we were considering but rejected!

But thank you for the nice comment. We should move this conversation to another thread.

Actually I have many more than 13, from many parts of the world, but they are not the living kind. My baby brother nicknamed me Turtle when he was in about first grade, and family members and friends have helped my collection grow over these decades!

Thanks for the welcome.

Exactly. We had this elaborate role-play that we were living in 1883 (I don't know why she picked 1883) and we had to make up stories about what was happening to us in 1883. I don't remember much of that but I remember making a paper doll (out of PAPER and watercolor paint and black waterproof ink) of my person.
