How's everyone liking this heat & humidity?
I spent yesterday @ Acadia with a couple of young ladies. :) One is from Florida, never been to Maine or had a Maine lobster. YOU know I had to fix that fast!!!!

OMG! I just ran out of the front door in my PJs shouting "No fighting! No fighting!" and the neighbors across the street were all watching! I didn't even have a matching top and bottom on! Guess I really am a crazy old cat lady.

One of my friends posted this on FB...so well said!


Cranky Old Man...
What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?
A cranky old man, . . .not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . .. with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food .. . ... . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . .'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . . .the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . .. . . A sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not . . ... lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . .The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking?. .Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse .you're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am . . .. As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, .. . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters .. . .. . who love one another
A young boy of Sixteen . . .. with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . .. . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . ..my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.
At Twenty-Five, now . . .I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . .. . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . .. With ties that should last.
At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,
But my woman is beside me . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, .. ...Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . My loved one and me.
Dark days are upon me . . . My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ... . . I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .. . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . And the love that I've known.
I'm now an old man . . .. and nature is cruel.
It's jest to make old age . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigour, depart.
There is now a stone . . . where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,
And now and again . . . my battered heart swells
I remember the joys . . .. . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . life over again.
I think of the years, all too few . . .. gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .. . .. . . open and see.
Not a cranky old man .
Look closer . . . see .. .. . .. ... . ME!!

Sorry my internet connection has been out all day! It has been doing that a lot lately. It seems like every time I call I am on hold forever and the internet will start working before I get someone on the line. But as soon as I hang up it shuts off again! I feel like they should deduct how many hours a month it is out from my bill. It is out enough sometimes, that I would get a pretty good discount! Every one is doing very well, Thanks for asking! :)

Everyone should have extra hugs today. Colorado has had more than its share of shocking tragedies with Columbine and now this, and the fires...ugh. I thought of you all today as I was enveloped by so many stunning blooms in the gardens. Last year when you were all here, nothing was blooming out there like this, because I had just replanted all the gardens. I wish it had looked like it does today! I wished you were all here to share the beauty with me. It is so neat to have friends who love plants and trees and flowers like we do!

A Boston PBS station has been running several retrospectives of Julia Child this weekend, and she did EVERYTHING on a 4-burner electric cooktop, identical to the stove (in slight variations) that I have had in all my residences over the last half-century.

All the professional chefs want gas; they state that by looking at the flame level under the pot, they have a "feel" for the heat level.

I know that experienced pilots talk about "flying by the seat of their pants." Probably the same idea.

The trade-off is safety. The professional chefs, in a professional kitchen, want to be able to "flame" a pan, to cook off any alcohol, or impart a smoky flavor, or speed fluid reduction. They deliberately spill a tiny amount of fluid, usually containing oil and/or alcohol, out the tilted back of the pan to ignite.

It ultimately comes down to a personal choice (like, what is your favorite color).

I'm a timid cook, so I will always go with the fraidy-cat choice of electric, which has the advantage of setting a specific number to preheat a pan...my egg white morning omelet is at 5.5 setting, and I walk away until it's time to pour.

(Gas stoves fetch a higher resale value when it's time to sell a house. But some of us don't move that often.)

Good luck to everyone on the various choices...may everyone's meals be delicious !!!

Have not given an update on my MIL in some time. Back in the hospital. Diarrhea is finally over, but major circulation problems again. We just got back and her foot looks like that of a corpse. Tuesday is the last chance to avoid amputation. They will try another bypass. After seeing it today, I would be shocked if it works.

the home we rented was right on the water next to a beach. at low tide i was able to get some nice stone to build these. we left them standing when we left, would be interesting to know how long they stand. the ones with the levels are very sturdy so they should last if not torn down.

Just spoke with my wife. Because of the very low probability that the bypass would succeed, they have decided to go ahead with the amputation tomorrow. Will be about 2/3 way up the calf. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Difficult days ahead - both physically and emotionally. Thank you.

On Wed we will stay overnight with a former DG member. Some of you may remember soferdg. He is a vet and lives in Kallispell, MT. He does most of his vet practice in Alaska traveling back and forth. Looking forward to meeting hima nd his wife and enjoying his amazing view. Then we'll take Rt 2 heading toward Michigan to visit our dear friend for a few days. Hoping the weather cooperates so we can camp. Looking to be home sometime late next week.

so no one wanted to venture a guess about this light house. i guess no one saw one of the greatest movies of all time, Forest Gump. This is the light house in Port Clyde that was used - my wife was very excited, she loves that movie.

we went there twice - the area had some great brown mica schist stone that i needed to take some pictures of and maybe try to find a nice sample :)

I believe the Wyeth collection is in its own Gallery in town,Rockland that is. Port Clyde can be sen in 20 mins.The General Store has a nice deli and a back deck where you can picnic in the docks.
When Andrew was caught in a affair with Helga ,his wife divorced him and he had to buy her -her own island.She is happy there. I went on a boat ride to see some Puffins and they pointed out her island. Only friends and her children are welcome. Sounds ideal to me.

Allison, Sophia is truly a beauty! You'll enjoy being her Auntie, I suspect!

Jen, that is an awesome photo of your nephew with his baby. The look on his face is really something and the baby is precious.

Debi, that is a very unusual situation with the birthdays! Have fun with little Leah, who is also a beauty! Is it that gardeners grow them beautiful, or is this just a group of families with great genes?

In addition to a surge suppressor - plug your computer into a battery backup. The battery backup is MADE to handle electricity so it catches the surge and (hopefully) contains it.

Victor - is it easy to install a whole house surge suppressor?

interesting - surprising the oil released retards plant growth, would think the opposite were true.

has anyone just walked up to a home and asked for a tour of the yard?

there is a home not far from me that has all sorts of interesting conifer plantings in a woodland setting with masses of flowering perennials by the front of the home and what you can see in the back as you drive past. i am thinking about introducing myself.

He's feeling pretty good. We are waiting on the results from the second blood draw to compare the enzymes. Barring any complications then we can be discharged. He is tired and hungry. As you know, waiting is a hard thing to do. Thanks for asking. It's kinda hard being away from a familiar area, too, but we are being well taken care of. God is good!

I've missed a lot. Been too busy in my gardens and posting pics of my daylilies.

Louise, your daylilies are looking great. I wish I could be there to see them. My gardens looked stunning this year, also. If you'd like to see some pics of my daylilies and such, I have a bunch on this thread, and the ones previous: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1271719/

Celeste, I've always wanted to got to Acadia National Park. One of these days... Looks like you had fun.

All that pj talk was funny. I take the dogs out every morning in my pj's.

Great news about your Mom, Marilyn. I'm glad everything will be alright.

Oh, man Allison, talk about muscle cramps. Last week I had 2 charlie horses, one in my right thigh in back, just above the knee, the other in my left calf. The one in the thigh was the worst. will have to try the pickle juice, though it doesn't sound appetizing. I do like pickles, but drinking the juice sounds yucky. I'll let you know if it works next time I get one and try it.

Terrible about that Colorado movie massacre. I have a friend over there who goes to that theater all the time. In fact he had bought an advanced ticket that same day it happened to see that movie on the weekend with some friends. He has been really upset over all this. The theater will be closed for awhile now. His friends are scared to go back there, but he is not. He says he won't allow that incident to keep him from from there, as they shouldn't give in to terror. Besides, it's not like that will happen there again. It was a freak occurrence. It's not like there are insane people like that all over the city out to target that theater, or any other, for that matter. Scary thing is, that could happen anywhere. Thank God it doesn't happen on a regular basis. As far as the baby and kid/kids being at the theater, I wouldn't take kids that age to a movie like that, but the parents couldn't get a babysitter, and they figured the kids would sleep through the movie. There was no way they could have known something like that would happen.

Yes, that would be cool if we were all neighbors. It would be cool if we could all live in neighborhoods where everyone was a gardener and loved sharing their gardens with their neighbors.

So sorry to hear about you MIL, Victor. Yes, tough times ahead, indeed. Will keep her in thoughts and prayers. I have an acquaintance here, another daylily/plant nut like me, who recently lost a foot after a fall off her roof, where she was trimming a tree that was growing over the house. She's a real trooper, though, and is not letting it get her down. Saw here a few weeks ago, and she said she was soon getting a prosthetic foot and would be good to go. She was on crutches, working at a local nursery, where she's worked for years. Still going strong, God bless her.

Well, I didn't get to catch up on everything. Got as far as the Andrew Wyeth picture. I love his work. My mother was also a big fan of his. Will catch up again soon.

Victor, I'm glad to hear your MIL is in good spirits.

Now to catch up on the rest of this thread.

Wow, Celeste, those photos trees buried in the snow at the arctic circle were fantastic! Thanks for sharing that link. Looks like something from Dr. Seuss.

Great pics of your nephew and the baby, Jen.

Congrats on your new niece, Allison! Welcome baby Sophia!

Victor, that was interesting on what causes the smell of rain. When I lived in northern Nevada it smelled like sagebrush there when it rained, as there was a lot of it around. Then in other areas there was a lot of creosote bush, and it smelled like creosote when it rained.

Jan, I didn't know Jeff was sick. Must have missed that. Good to know he's feeling better and that it was nothing serious.

Can't believe that zombie preparedness kit. What kind of people pay money for stuff like that? Obviously those people have money to burn.

Celeste, that color run sounds like fun. This sounds like fun, too: http://runforyourlives.com/ . I couldn't do it, what with my bad ankle and all, can't run, but if I could, I certainly would. Would love to watch sometime. They had one in Boston in May, but I missed it.

I've done that once or twice myself, when Justin was in ICU @ Childrens hospital there were no more cots left and I either sat upright in a straight back chair or stood. After 3 days I could no longer tell if I was standing, sitting, awake or sleeping. They finally found me a recliner which felt like a feather bed once I hit it...but I was not leaving that child's side.

We're not the only country with maniacs killing many people and it's not only guns that are used.

Glad your MIL is positively reacting to her new rehab, Victor.

RD, glad your mom is on the mend and YIKES about the cats.

Home again, home again, jittery jig!!! We made great time! I was driving. Made the 710 miles in 12 1/2 hrs. It was a good travel day. Jeff still feels a little punky, but did eat dinner.

Could I bother you to say a little prayer today for my DD Tarsha please. She's running the 10K Beacon to Beacon Race today.
This is my kid w/asthma who's on 5? different medications for it. :( It's supposed to be hot and humid...75 and sticky @ 8am when the race starts. It's her first 10K and the weather is hard on her breathing as it is, im just being Mom and worrying. :)
Over 6600 people run this race, they seriously come from all over the world to run in this.

Wowzer, Tarsha! As someone who has had asthma since childhood, I would say that is quite an accomplishment! Please send her my congrats! Amazing family you have, Celeste!

Thanks all, as Allison said... she did it!! She really amazes me, very strong independent young lady.
From her FB page this afternoon...
Tarsha Donar
B2B day is finally here. I can't describe the emotions going through me right now but it's pretty amazing!
Later:
Very hot but amazing day!!!! Started out with an 8:36 for the first 3 miles and ended just under 1hr with a 9:04 mile which is my best time yet! The volunteers and spectators were amazing. The sprinklers were great and I even did a little YMCA while running :) Now I want to take a shower, a nap, and if I don't do a thing the rest of the day I would be fine. I will definitely do it next year!"

Means I can worry again next year! LOL

I always remember Tarsha in those terrific wedding photos (I think it was her, anyway).

The photo I'm thinking of in particular is a photo of her looking out a glass sliding door, taken from behind her, so she is in silhouette (sp?).

Lovely.

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much. A whole lot is going on in my life. For one, I'm moving to Beacon, NY. Tomorrow morning as a matter of fact. What am I doing up? Well, I was just browsing the net before packing up my computer and found this video. I felt compelled to share it here. It may offend some. I don't mean to. I see it speaking only love and that is where I come from. Join me.

http://youtu.be/K-CpCUOygqU

Once I'm settled, I'll come back and read all I missed. I didn't even read the front of this thread. Hope everyone is happy and healthy! God be with everyone.
