Re: Knitting! (and other needle arts...)

Other needle arts... I am a quilter and I've got 2 quilts on the go now. One is called La Passacaglia and the pattern is from the book Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. There is a huge facebook group devoted to this quilt and many people are very devoted to it. I'm really enjoying making it,...

Any SAR people out there?

I live in British Columbia, Canada and am an active member of my local SAR group. Any one else? What do you like about SAR? I am a fully qualified SAR member but I don't search or rescue, I run comms and IT out of our command vehicle. I work closely with our managers in mapping areas searched, areas...

Re: Naming inanimate objects

The perfect name for a dog is "Looks Like Rain" Can you imagine standing in the dog park yelling out "Looks Like Rain"! Another good name for a cat is "Hey Yu"

Re: Naming inanimate objects

I don't name anything, but in the book I'm reading now one of the characters call his car Vlad the Impala! I think that's great.

Re: Tell a joke

So, quite a few posts back I said that if you say gullible v-e-r-y slowly it sounds like "green beans" Sitting at work yesterday shooting the breeze with my boss I told him the very same thing. He was halfway through the second gullible before he realized! I haven't laughed so hard at work in a long...

Re: Frederick Banting's Birthday

Since I was only given the news yesterday the first step is more blood draws. Then an appointment at the diabetes education clinic. I'd prefer to start glucose monitoring right away. It's better to establish a base line as soon as possible. The hemochromitosis will require blood donations to control...

Frederick Banting's Birthday

Today, November 14 2016, is the birthday of Frederick Banting. He was a Canadian medical scientist, physician, painter, and Nobel laureate noted as the first person to use insulin on humans. In a very ironic and life changing twist of fate, today I was diagnosed with diabetes. And hemochromatosis. L...

Add an ....ing to a title [GAME]

In the vein of "add a goat and ruin a quote" I came across this little gem while I was killing time at work today. Add the letters "ing" to the ends of movie or book titles to completely change the meanings. For example... Kindergarten Coping; It is a tumor! James Bonding; The tale of a man who just...
