TGIC indeed. Only one seen at end of that notorious linkie.  Folk must be ootside enjoying selves.  Saw comment-laden thread about graffiti painted on late whale, declined to type anything.
Sposed to've been doing newsltr all day, but Failure To Plan Ahead led furrst to scarcity of paper (since remedied) then to toner exhausting itself. Coupla pages nearly called for reprint over, but look like Wrath of Inigo Montoya.
While whinging, there's 3 day Scout activity nearby, sufficiently promoed in local club rag but not statewide one.  E-drses have failed, others' in-boxes overstuffed so they'll get hard copies by USMule  mayhap Mon when event's over.  May be up all night running pages, but why?  Did e-mail Preliminary Draft of issue to those who could  receive, as well as some whom couldn't  & theirs bounced.
Oh yah --

Lucky you! Not so lucky us who really, really, really need some rain. It's in the 90's here and we're in a drought. :'-(

Remind me how upset I was about the drought when winter rolls around and I'm sitting on my roof watching the neighborhood wash away. El Nino is here this year and I'm on a flood plain. :-/

Have you had localized flooding out that way this year? I've heard when the water table is so shallow like that, it can be hell on things like, oh, the foundation to your house when it rains, even if it's not too terribly much. That would be really sucky right there.

I don't have allergies. Have been very lucky that way. At first, I thought it was a sinus infection. That was 2 days ago. Now I think it's a cold, or something...I haz a fever and the right side of my face is just blocked up bad! ACK! *stoopy germ spreaders at work* I have had about 7 hrs. of sleep in the past 2 days. :(

Oh, congrats! Were you trying to lose weight? I am so bad at the losing weight thing. I lost some weight, then gained some back. Then I lost another weight or some and gained some of that back. So I'm still down some pounds, but not like a normal person who is supposed to be losing weight would be. But that's ok! I'm gonna die some day anyway and then I truly will no longer give a crap, because then the weight will come off naturally. It really does all work out in the end!

Everything around here is a sponge... apparently most of the neighborhood used to be a swamp.. the side street by my house was a short dead end .. my house and the one across the street face the former dead end street, but our addresses are for the main street intersecting.. everything downhill from me is flat and slow to drain.. I have an underground creek under my back yard, which keeps my grass green the entire summer, while everybody else has brown crunchy lawns..  the daycare two doors down brings the kids to my yard to play, which is ok.. and no dogs, so no land mines to navigate.... Fred does his thing in the mulch around back, so no problems there...   I have a full basement, and the sump pump runs a lot.. even have a backup pump installed for real heavy rains....  no foundation issues yet....

Thank you!  She's finally coming out of her shell a bit - she's got severe anxiety issues and the shelter gave her to me (no adoption fees) just to ensure she was in a good home so they wouldn't have to euthanize her.  She's been here since late January and is starting to play now, both with toys and with the other kitties.  Progress - slow, but definitely progress!  I hope she'll eventually grow out of the need to overgroom until she's bloody, poor girl...  such a love!  She adores my daughter and gives her big (claw-filled) hugs whenever she comes over.  Daughter lives across the hall, so Mollie sees her almost every day.

Second, the girls in MP training are indeed graduated, but I have been begging (nagging) my friend for updates and or otherwise any info without viable success. She's being very elusive which isn't very odd as many EMS folk are notoriously hard to get ahold of...
Just got this from micromedic. She is trying to get updated addresses...... I guess we just wait on that for now.

An underground creek? Does it actually come above ground at some point further away? That would be kinda cool!

I hear that's how you're supposed to do it! Unfortunately, I see the doctor every month at least and they weigh me there. Bah! Oh, well. I always manage to drown my sorrows in a non-fat, sugar free iced mocha with an extra shot of espresso and NO WHIP on my way home. Before it used to be just "mocha", so I'm getting better. A wee bit.

I hope you can, too! Get better! If not, get thee to the Med 7 clinic! (or whatever you call the doc in a box out there - they're always good for mysterious, pill shaped stuffs that kinda sorta help)

I had another appointment at the cardiologist today.
I had to stop for a blood test before going to the appointment.
It turned into a roller coaster ride and I just about have whiplash from all the twists and turns.
This is gonna be one of those TMI things, so you may want to skip to the next Weeners...
I got out without any further braids.
I was told that since we weren't having any luck with all the diuretics, they were going to admit me to the hospital.
"OK, you're the doctor..."
She went off to get stuff arranged and left me sitting in the exam room.

I sent a text to several friends to let them know.
I also called the neighbor across the street to let her know she was going to need to feed Mr. Kitty.
Shortly after I got all that handled, she came back in and told me there was a change of plans.
They wanted to do another 80mg IV diuretic, bump my diuretic pills and see me again Monday.
"OK, you're the doctor..."
I sent out another text saying there was a change of plans and that they were going to be letting me go home after all.
I called the neighbor across the street back to let her know she wouldn't need to feed Mr. Kitty after all.

A gal came in and inserted an IV, set out the paraphernalia and the bottle of piss-juice and said a nurse would be right with me.
A few minutes later, she came back with a second, much bigger bottle of piss-juice.
A few minutes later, she came back and took the big bottle and came back with two medium bottles.
Then I waited.
And I waited.
And I waited some more.

Then my doctor came back in and told me there was another change of plans.
The results from the blood draw had come back in the interim and some of the numbers weren't good.
Those numbers indicated that my kidneys aren't performing up to snuff, and that the level of diuretics they were planning on giving me might not be so prudent. They needed to do some consulting amongst themselves and would probably be sending me to the hospital after all.
They told me to sit tight and wait a few more minutes.

About 40 minutes later, they came back and told me they had decided to go ahead and do the IV piss-juice.
They also bumped the diuretic pills I was to take tonight.
They also doubled my potassium supplement.
They also wanted me to come back Friday instead of Monday as well as have another blood draw.
Oh! And while they were at it, they decided that I needed to have my pacemaker removed and replaced with model that also has a defibrillator. (I don't know it will have wi-fi or accept K-cups).

tl:dr version...

I go in Friday.
I figure they'll throw me in the hospital and try to get as much water off of me as possible over the weekend.
Then Monday (assuming they get enough fluid off), they'll slice me and do the pacemaker switch.

If they're as smart as they should be, they should sell me to the gypsies and call it a successful day.

Sorry for the wall of text, but I just wanted to pass the word along.
Wish me luck.

And a critter..

Asked folk at Flying Pig Marathon ofc if this was theirs, before swiping it for Own Nefarious Porpoises. They said No.  Not sure what white IC means/purports.  This yr is 16th annual; will fetch this yr's Design on morrow or sometime before close of this Caturday.  Already got Entertainment Grunt Ts which Delta Kings are to wear Sun AM.

Speaking of rain, 'twas predicted it'd rain here all week.  Had couple quick goose drownders, but not close to constant as predicted.
Stick with English this time which already typed.  Or not -- just go collapse.  Took flannel sheets off bed today; Piiki may be ticked as Her Bed shared with us won't be as warm as before.

Good luck with everything sweetie. At least they have a plan! It does sound like an excellent idea switching out the pacemaker to the deluxe model for just-in-case's sake. I hope you are at least comfortable, and not in pain too. Thanks for keeping us posted and just so you know fingers and toes are crossed for good luck and a big ol' (((((((HUGS))))))) for you too!

Deep breaths, Yobbery. Gotta love work stress.

I don't know how I managed it, but I have farked up my right shoulder. Don't know if it's muscle, nerve or joint related - I only know that it hurts to move. Should probably see an M.D. about it.

Hello everyboddeee!!!
 ^-^
='.'=

q_j, wishin' you the best ♥...(advice, advice...what's good advice for someone going into hospital...)

If this isn't going to be a drive-by, take your own pillow. The hospital pillows are designed by Torquemada for easy cleaning, not comfort.
And you can only get away with blaming "post-anesethesia fog" for so much before they start catching on that you are mischief incarnate...

Sending my Dad's hot toddy to lilyspad...jigger of whiskey, tblsp lemon juice, honey and hot water.
Won't cure what ails ya, but you won't notice it quite so much... ;-)

For those of you who are also dieting...I got something called Premier Protein Shakes at Costco (they're in the pharmacy department). They come in chocolate and vanilla; 160 calories and 30 grams of protein. This helped me IMMENSELY with the "I'm so hungry I'm going to kill someone and eat them!" grumpies...
I mix them 1:1 with whole milk (hey, just because I'm dieting doesn't mean I have to give up EVERYTHING nice). The vanilla has a very strong flavor...I prefer the chocolate, but YMMV.


Fifty lbs down since January...must be doing something right...but those Weight Watcher and Special K commercials that show happy women dancing around cos they supposedly lost weight...
They LIE.
My body is saying "Dude, WTF are you DOING to me?!" and doesn't believe me when I say "Trust me, it's for your own good...you'll thank me later. Really."

Good morning Caturday people!  It's another wonderful day here in techno-operations land, where we make sure everyone can get their kittehs captioned and their good wishes sent (when we feel like it, offer only good as long as bills are paid, not my rule)

Thread might be short enough I can actually think to say things for specific peoples.  Here we go!

Syzygy: Best advice I've ever heard for folks going to the hospital was this: get out as quick as possible.  Then again, the only other advice I ever got about hospitals was: "Try to avoid needing to go there", so either one really works.  Also, wtg on weight loss.  Wish I could pull that off, but I'm at the point of "I'm not shedding pounds, so I'll focus on making the pounds I do have look better"

q_j: You get all better now.  In the words of my favorite coworker (the one who laughs when I refer to her as the "Chemical formula for hatred"): "You get better nao!"

tigerose: Also wtg on weight loss

RWDA: I'd send you some of our rain, but we need it for a day of 2.  Could I interest you in our upcoming weekend snowfall though?  Also, lolcat exam question answer is D, "Elenbity-seben an forty cheezburger - wit baycon".  Cheezburgers is always the answer.

Ok, enough for now, time to try to "work" and not "sleep"

Oh, noes! :-( I'm so sorry that's happening to you. I sometimes wish when they decide to do horrible things they wouldn't tell us about it first. That way you could be all "Oh, hey. What's up, doctor dudes?" and they could say something like, "Oh, not much, Mr Jellyroll. We're going to give you this here shot for ....um, your health. Yes, this is definitely for your health" and then the next thing you know you're waking up in recovery. I think the stress of knowing what they're going to do days in advance doesn't help sometimes.

My advice for going to the hospital is to bring your own pepper mill and hot sauce. The food in those places can be rather bland and you need to eat healthfully to recover. If it were me, I'd bring an assortment of finishing salts as well, but in your case that would probably make them really mad, so yeah, don't do that.

Good Meowning! thank you q_j for the update. Sending prayers! I would almost suggest you bring a bottle of foaming hand soap. For your nurses. Smells nice, and won't dry the skin? They will be eager to use it. :)

This is how I feel.. itch, itch, scratch scratch. I just finished my second round of Steroids. Still just peppered with Hives. trying to narrow down the cause. Same laundry soap, body soap, lotions, ect. Had to have been something I ate. Dr. said Hives can last months. I'm eating Benadryl like its candy. That helps some.

Wish I had thought of that when I was in the hospital. On the other hand, I only got to eat a regular meal just before I was sent home. Most of the time I was on clear liquids. First day: was going to get an endoscopy next day, so no solids (but someone screwed up the scheduling and it never happened). Second day: was going to get an endoscopy next day, so same diet (which they actually scheduled). Third day: was going to get a colonoscopy next day so same again with the addition of the uber-powerful laxative (which was scheduled). Fourth day: had colonoscopy mid-afternoon. Got to eat when I got back to the room while waiting to see if they were going to release me.

I love Providence. My ex-SIL used to take me shopping there occasionally. (I know the outlet mall well too). After almost 30 years there, my brother still doesn't pahhhhk his caaaah and he still drinks from a bubbler. He also roots for the Red Sox and Celtics but his football loyalty has not strayed from the Packers. (Good thing too, he was born in Green Bay and was delivered by the GP who was also the Packers' team doctor back in the early 50's)

Alrighty..

..as mentioned on FB Caturday Page..or in last Caturday thread..so scattered, really no recall which..  I have *verra* limited time, this morn..so let's put it to good use..!!   =D

First and foremost, a HUGE amount of thanks fer  vudutek gifting me a free month of TF..  I was gunna handle that, m'self..but, as it turns out, my deposited pay is ~$50 less than expected and I won't know why until m'pay-stub arrives in the mail t'day or t'morrow..so the gift is *indeed* most timely and, without it, I wouldn't be here now..

Next, to  lilyspad..  Best wishes fer a quick recovery..dunno where y'are, but the up'n'down weather has played hades with everyone's health in my area, this year..my thoughts be with you..

And  q_j..even moreso t'you with the health issues you've been dealing with..  The uncertainty is killer, and the moment-to-moment change plays hell on the nerves  (blood I'd had drawn, two weeks+ back, fer bloodwork was 'lost in transit'..and fer whatever reason, no-one thought t'call me..  >.<  Now they're sending me a slip to have it done at the hosp, no additional charge o'course, but it will take me a couple weeks to schedule a workable time and another week+ fer results..when I *should* have had the results ~ April 22nd..blech..)..  Hang in there..!  We're all here behind you..  :)

Additional wishes fer  sherpa and  alien..haven't seen any new updates, and the last ones weren't all that promising..  :/

..and..I guess that's it, fer now..  Got one last 12-hour shift, t'nite..and then, a *glorious* 2-day weekend..!  (hint:  with my sched, my 'weekends' are usually 3 and 4-days long..  :P  )  After that, a 4-day (48hrs) week..then back to normal..  So, where I'm goin' with this..  Will be off after this post..and not back on until Sat morn..but will then be around as much as sleep permits until Moansday morn..after that..?  Weekends free fer a whole month..!

Everyfurry haz a great day/nite and I'll see you all again t'morrow morning..!

I shall leave this behind..  :)

syzygy whizz:

For those of you who are also dieting...I got something called Premier Protein Shakes at Costco (they're in the pharmacy department). They come in chocolate and vanilla; 160 calories and 30 grams of protein. This helped me IMMENSELY with the "I'm so hungry I'm going to kill someone and eat them!" grumpies...
I mix them 1:1 with whole milk (hey, just because I'm dieting doesn't mean I have to give up EVERYTHING nice). The vanilla has a very strong flavor...I prefer the chocolate, but YMMV.


Fifty lbs down since January...must be doing something right...but those Weight Watcher and Special K commercials that show happy women dancing around cos they supposedly lost weight...
They LIE.
My body is saying "Dude, WTF are you DOING to me?!" and doesn't believe me when I say "Trust me, it's for your own good...you'll thank me later. Really."


I hate the taste of cow's milk... So I mix my protein shakes with unsweetened Almond Milk, unsweetened Coconut Milk, or the tasty new version that's a mix of the two.  I love the taste :)  And great job on the weight loss!!


q_j - Dood!  Stoppit!  Hopefully everything goes swimmingly :)  **Big Hugs** and wishes for speedy recovery!!!

lilyspad - Get better fastly!

Aaaaaannndd... I can't remember what everyone else said anymore.  Dammit.  Oh, well... It's the last really nice, warm day before we go back to cold and raining, so I need to get my rear in gear and do some stuffs.  The cats aren't impressed with how much I've been outside, but they're happy to have their windows open... so I guess it works out ok.

New pics of Lars from yesterday or the day before.  I was laughing so very hard.  When he fell asleep, the blankie was thrown over the back/arm of the sofa.  The longer he stayed there, the more it fell over onto him.  Normally he HATES blankies on top of him, so I was surprised he just lived with it falling onto him for over an hour!

Sorry about the picture quality... not the greatest lighting and I had to use the camera on the front of my phone so I didn't disturb him.

catmandu: Wish I had thought of that when I was in the hospital.


I tend to just wake up in hospitals and wonder WTF happened. I have never in my life entered one on purpose, except the ER, and when they tried to admit me, that did not go so well. They found out very quickly I know how to remove my own IVs and will flee without signing their stupid "AMA" form if I am even nominally mobile. So what I tend to do is wake up in a bed unable to do anything except weakly complain about EVERYTHING and then promptly demand a pepper mill, some fancy salts and an assortment of hot sauces. It is assumed if you know me well enough I am calling you, slurring my words and yelling "what's the name of this place again?" you will know I am NOT in a bar and that you should still also bring coffee, because you WILL meet my demands promptly and I will not let you rest until you do (because I'm probably shot full of drugs to keep me somewhat manageable). That's one of the very, very few advantages to being both sickly and firmly in the rowdy crowd. Everyone knows what to do in case of emergency or accidental bone breakage and concussions, because you've had plenty of those.

Another way of saying that would be "I'm a giant PITA without my treats, especially when half dead".


SweetBecca: This is how I feel.. itch, itch, scratch scratch. I just finished my second round of Steroids. Still just peppered with Hives. trying to narrow down the cause. Same laundry soap, body soap, lotions, ect. Had to have been something I ate. Dr. said Hives can last months. I'm eating Benadryl like its candy. That helps some. Anyway there is more text here than pictures. Oops..


Sounds like a great excuse to barricade yourself in the Beaver Den and refuse to come out until the source is identified. My goodness. However WILL you keep yourself entertained until then?

Hi, all.

I've been a lurker since 2008 and just signed up for TF today.  Every Monday morning I so look forward to viewing the Caturday page to make the Monday morning at work more bearable.

I'm posting now to ask a question - my cat, Nutmeg, will follow me into the bedroom after I shower every morning and demand to groom me.  Like, she is on the bed meowing fiercely, sits up on her haunches, stretches out her paw and grabs my face in order to give me a groom.  Usually on my chin or between my eyes.  Any thoughts?

The groomer in question:

quantum_jellyroll: Wall of text alert


tl:dr version...

I go in Friday.
I figure they'll throw me in the hospital and try to get as much water off of me as possible over the weekend.
Then Monday (assuming they get enough fluid off), they'll slice me and do the pacemaker switch.

If they're as smart as they should be, they should sell me to the gypsies and call it a successful day.

Sorry for the wall of text, but I just wanted to pass the word along.
Wish me luck.

And a critter..

Sucks to hear that, hang tough man.

Also, wish I'D thought of that caption for the terrier, dammit!

Real Women Drink Akvavit: catmandu: Wish I had thought of that when I was in the hospital....*stuff needed while in durance medical*


My ex-sig other had some pretty extended hospital stays...as in weeks or months. We usually knew when it was going to be lengthy, so when he checked in, it looked like he was moving in.
Two pillows, his fleecy blanket, a fan, the laptop (and cord), assortment of games/movies, tank-tops (he didn't like wearing hospital gowns; he felt better in a shirt) and hygiene kit (he had sensitive skin) with Dr Bronner's almond castile soap among other things.

Oh yeah, and flowers...usually alstromeria (aka Peruvian lilies). They give you the best bang for your buck for long-lasting if you remember to change the water every few days...we had one bunch last 3 weeks!
Oh, and the Ben and Jerry's Phish Food ice cream! Mustn't forget that...

There was a cat involved too...we asked the doc to write that he could have pet therapy and I'd bring my cat Esme to visit him.
She traveled well, and I think she enjoyed visiting her uncle...she'd melt into his arms, blink slowly and purrrrrrr. Charmed all the staff too...especially when she gave the doc a 'kiss' on the nose when he jokingly asked her opinion.

Spaz Cat Update!

Nice rescue lady just called a while ago. Yesterday the Dried Up Old Bag yelled at her and said if Spaz Cat did not produce kittens, she was outta there. Today Spaz Cat has produced THREE kittens! YAY!!! This may have a happy ending without me ending up with another cat after all! (Though I think my mom really wants Spaz Cat now) I have to focus on getting Lord Earl the Grey of Kitty somewhat trusting and find him a home before he ends up like poor Moo Kitty Sissy Doodles, so I'm glad I don't have to stress the Spaz Cat for a good while now.

I'm sure that would do it for most people. I would have ended up a Fark headline.

Nah, I would have been puzzled and probably followed along, too. Though that time my mom misunderstood when I was supposed to be returning home and couldn't reach me by cell phone and reported me missing didn't exactly lead to a great police contact experience. Once I figured out I wasn't about to be arrested, I was a bit annoyed. "Do I look missing to you?" I'm lucky he didn't make me missing himself, I guess. lol!

How do you do laundry? They really made my day. But I m glad to be out of the period clothes. Gosh they get heavy!

For some unholy reason, I always think "chocolate cake" when I hear "sauerkraut" even though I have never made such a cake nor have I ever used sauerkraut in any manner other than the traditional American and Germanic ways. Bizarre, ain't it?

That does sound like you had fun! One of my "cousins" did the traveling Ren Faire thing for years and I honestly don't know how she wore some of the costumes she wore. I borrowed things from her a couple times and they were not exactly what I would consider every day attire. Can you imagine having to wear that old timey clothing stuff all day, every day? Gah! No thank you.

I wonder that too. That or a bad case of strep. Either way, nice round of antibiotics should work wonders (hopefully).

No, they were taken out so long ago, I don't even remember. But it was back in the day when you got ice cream and pudding! Not like now when they make you eat a bunch of really harsh shiat to make scar tissue...like fries and chips, and stuff....RIGHT AFTER you get out of surgery! Ouch! It's not really my throat that hurts. It's the soft tissue at the back of my mouth before the throat.....lots of nasty phlemmy crap making it really irritated! Sorry for the tmi.

Well, prolly not that many. I have noticed, however, that beer is the only thing that dulls the pain at the back of my soft palate that makes it painful to swallow, so I got that goin' for me. :D

This is probably a dumb question, but, do you still have your tonsils?
cuz that sound like what I get when my tonsils act up.

I wonder that too. That or a bad case of strep. Either way, nice round of antibiotics should work wonders (hopefully).

Then again, the central Ohio mumps and measles epidemic may have went her way :O


When I get really stressed out my tonsils act up. My dr. thinks if it wasn't for my tonsils I'd probably get ulcers instead.

So, most of us who live in areas that get seasons (Ahem - WINTER) probably have a tote not unlike this one.  This one is just for my winter hats/scarves/gloves/etc (the mister has his own tote).  In a rush one morning this past winter I pulled the tote from the closet and grabbed what I needed.  Mr. Station sent me this photo not long after:
http://i204.photobucket.com

(the mister also informed me that in attempting to re-configure his comfort, Buster managed to roll himself *and* the tote off the table and onto the floor.

Ms MacGyver: Hi, all.

I've been a lurker since 2008 and just signed up for TF today.  Every Monday morning I so look forward to viewing the Caturday page to make the Monday morning at work more bearable.

I'm posting now to ask a question - my cat, Nutmeg, will follow me into the bedroom after I shower every morning and demand to groom me.  Like, she is on the bed meowing fiercely, sits up on her haunches, stretches out her paw and grabs my face in order to give me a groom.  Usually on my chin or between my eyes.  Any thoughts?


She REALLY likes you?

Thanks, however the network is running fine (*knocks wood*). It's time to budget for next fiscal year. We tell them what we need with full justifications, have 90% of what is submitted denied, and then be presented with additional cuts that need to be met. It's like some sort of sick and twisted ballet we perform every year.

Maybe you need to tell them it's like stocking the first-aid kit. So many things that you NEED to have, but if they aren't there, someone's going to bleed to death. And it will cost more in the long run with emergency visits. :D

tigerose: Hello! Wall o text!
I spent an hour with my first grade class. They were wonderful. Very attentive, I even had two girls swayin to the music. :) I almost had them convinced that the rubber leeches were alive too..they had good post presentation questions too, like what do you use to brush your hair. How do you do laundry? They really made my day. But I m glad to be out of the period clothes. Gosh they get heavy!


Bet you looked good in your smaller chemise though!
I always wondered about that...the sheer WEIGHT and restrictiveness of period clothing. I felt so sorry/took me hat off in respect for the ladies who wore not only 'period clothes' but period underpinnings (read "corsetting") and still managed to get stuff done.
No wonder they fainted a lot...breathing is kinda necessary.

Leeches are being used again for hematomas...I read an article a long time ago about a guy who had a HUGE one on his ear and they treated it with leeches.

No cat pics (my camera is nowhere to be found)...but D'Artagnan assisted me with my diet the other day by eating the Chili Fritos I'd put by 'for later'.
Such a sweet boy...and such a weird appetite.

Will Cassie take to a very young lady?

Li-Ion is a psycho around Cassie, another female is not a good idea.
Will Cassie take to a very young lady?
I may have already named her and I haven't even met her yet.
It's not a good idea, It's not a good idea, It's not a good idea.


Have to got o bed now, I will check back in the morning.


Is that like trying to talk me out of more eyeliner and nail polish? When they're all on sale? And I have coupons?

So, what's her name and when is she coming home?

Hai SG!!! Good to see you! Hope Buddy is still eating like a champ!


Thanks, good to see you too!

His appetite has levelled off a little bit in the past couple days.  He wouldn't eat lunch today at all, but it is unusually warm and humid out.  He did eat a big breakfast though.  And lots of treats.  :)  Either way he's still consuming a respectable amount and seems quite contented otherwise so we'll just roll with that.

Hope you're feeling much better soon!  I hate those soggy head-colds.  I'm a side-sleeper so when I come down with that kind of thing I have to wake up once an hour and turn myself over so the sopping full side of my face can drain while the empty side takes a turn getting full.  Blargh!  :op

I assume you are having no problem drinking plenty of fluids.  :)

Sounds really good, but I am way too lazy for that. Plus I only eat a little bit about once a year. Thanks though! I'm sure some of the other folks here would really like that!

Ok, if any of you would like it (it's a bit labor-intensive, but most good things are) I will post it here.


I'd be interested in the recipe too. There's a Sauerkraut Festival in one of the nearby towns each year, cabbage is still a big crop here in upstate NY. One of my best friends from high school is on the committee of the Phelps Sauerkraut Weekend. They've got plenty of recipes in the link for cooking with sauerkraut, none for making it yourself. Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake anyone?

raises hand, I would like the recipe pls.


I'll assume you're not going to make as much as we do. Say 4 or 5 heads of cabbage (We usually end up using 12 or 15). If you are going to make a large batch, just use a larger container---10 gallons or so.

Shred cabbage into a 5 gallon bucket, til it's about 4" deep.

Put 2 or 3 teaspoons each of sugar and pickling (not table) salt and sprinkle in.
Then pound the mixture with some sort of mallet til you hear juice. This pounding is key--otherwise all you have is shredded cabbage with salt and sugar on it.

Repeat until bucket is full. Cover with cheesecloth wrapped tightly over the top (tucked down the inside edge of the bucket), a large slab of wood on top, and a large rock for weight.

Store in a warm place, and check it every 2 or 3 days to skim off the top foam. Should be ready in about 3 weeks. Then keep cool from then on. (but not frozen---put it in the fridge or a cold room--shed or entryway would work). 

For cooking, low heat for about 6 hours. A crock pot is ideal. Spareribs or hot dogs can be
subbed for pigs hocks, which are hard to find. Don't buy the smoked ones at your local supermarket; they suck. (the hot dogs obviously don't need to cook 6 hours).

QJ, I wish the best.....

I hope tomorrow is going to be quiet. We were woken up by the police warning us of a possible evacuation due to a bomb. The wife immediately took the teenager to school. Good thing because they soon thereafter forbade all traffic on the road. So he got to school. Eventually things were cleared up. We just got back from the humane society where one of the volunteers with us was all upset. Apparently she saw a hawk this morning grab her neighbor's cat. She said the cat's screams being carried off and were just awful. Another reason to keep your cats inside. In our area as well mainly due to coyotes.

lilyspad, hope you get some antibiotics and feel better in time to enjoy your grillin' weekend!
I'm not a doctor, don't play one on TV, nor did I sleep at a Holiday Inn last night, but it does sound like a sinus infection.
Do you have access to tea tree oil (health food store)?
Dab a small amount on the sinus areas (brow, under eye), and under your nose.
It really does help with drainage.

I've also heard good things about a neti pot (although it's kinda gross)...just be sure to use DISTILLED water! It involves pouring it up your nose...you don't need MORE unfriendly stuff getting into your system (mucous membranes are kinda permeable that way).

Giving all this unsolicited advice cos my magic wand has been confiscated and I can't help directly...wish I could.

q_j...you're in my thoughts with wishes for good results, a short stay, and only as much mayhem as you choose to start.
Anybody close enough to send you hushpuppies? Unless you're on a restricted diet they'll let you have outside food...
at least they did my ex-sig other... >:-D
Seriously, wishing you WELL.

Cats are fed in prep for going to work: D'Artagnan gets roast chicken breast, Wimsey has canned chicken 'n' liver, Raven gets tuna primavera, and Riktor gets a mix of all three.
Everyone but Wimsey gets a dash of olive oil on their food...he doesn't care for it, thank you.

I've been a lurker since 2008 and just signed up for TF today.  Every Monday morning I so look forward to viewing the Caturday page to make the Monday morning at work more bearable.

I'm posting now to ask a question - my cat, Nutmeg, will follow me into the bedroom after I shower every morning and demand to groom me.  Like, she is on the bed meowing fiercely, sits up on her haunches, stretches out her paw and grabs my face in order to give me a groom.  Usually on my chin or between my eyes.  Any thoughts?

She REALLY likes you?


I hope so. My lap is the only one she sits on, too!

Thank luluja!  Blue is cute approximately 30 minutes of each day.  Caught him on one of those for that photo.

For all the people who offered suggestions last week about the nuclear Jasper poo:

OlderGuy, akimbotoo, The Ice Queen, Bathia_Mapes, mousiebelle, CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED, reigning.cats.and.dogs, L33t Squirrel, domari, ktybear, Typhoid, VOCSL5, RadicalEd, laulaja, and syzygy whizz

After five days on Hill's prescription W/D, he's at least dropping uh, solid stuff.  He still smells like an animal the rest of the barnyard would kick out, but at least he has solid poo.  It's not grain free (it's mostly rice) but it's low fat and free from most of the crap in regular cat food.  Thank you all for the suggestions since I'll almost certainly have to try something else if this stops working :)

So here's Jasper inside a giant desk I had made in Thailand - a drawer stop warped and I'm trying to bend it down with some books.  He cares not:

Annie is a little semi-feral that was born on a farm my co-worker rents. The place came with a dog and many feral cats. An orange queen gave birth to a small litter but she is not a good mom, she abandon the tortoiseshell and moved the rest to a someplace inaccessible. A day later the little calico was found abandoned in front of the dog pen. The torti was adopted by another queen with some older kittens but when Annie was put in with her sister and the older kittens, mom cat seemed overwhelmed. Co-worker is supplementing with KMR but Annie tried to eat gooshy food instead.
She is a bright tri-color calico like old Maynerd and Mandy were. I don't know if Oma Cassie will accept and help take care of little Annie, I think Tom will be OK with her as he is pretty cool, Max is just Max and will be OK but I worry about Li-Ion as I believe he is responsible for the loss of both Flower and Forrest. He still makes every effort to kill Oma Cassie and I have to be very careful about doors and where each of them are at all times.
I did just go out and get six new keets for the farm as the fleas and tick here are outrageous, I spotted several snakes last year so I think I need to run some Guineafowl to help clean up the place.
I spend more on animal feed than people food now.

maynerdkitty: I worry about Li-Ion as I believe he is responsible for the loss of both Flower and Forrest. He still makes every effort to kill Oma Cassie


OK, I retract my previous statement. I forgot all about Li-lon's aggression issues with some cats. It sounds like the wee one may be better off in at least a temporary refuge elsewhere. When she is old enough to at least stay out of the way or get away, then maybe she can hang with you. Until then, unless you've got the resources to keep them separated with religious devotion, it kinda sounds like everyone would have a really bad time. Even Li-lon, because he's got a reason for behaving that way, we just don't understand it.

Dougie AXP: Squilax: And additionally, while we (were) discussing weird cat behavior, I wonder if anyone else's cats reach out gently to pet the human-face? Lazerface (aka "Minicat" - she never grew past 5month old size) will gently, slowly, reach out her front paws and very softly pet my face. Darndest thing... Mr. Squilax insists she's petting us because we pet her lil face but I think there *must* be a nefarious purpose behind it...

She's searching for strategic biological weaknesses in order to kill you with least resistance.


Get out of my head, you.

Happy Birthday, Hector! YAY!

John Buck 41: Our 4 critters all went to the vet this week for their annuals (and a couple booster shots). $180 for the cats, $80 for the dogs. Ouch.


Thanks for reminding me, John Buck 41 (no, really!)...
My 'middle kids' - (Wimsey and D'Artagnan) are due for their 3 year rabies boosters.
I can give them their distemper etc., shots at home...but I gotta take 'em to the vet for the rabies one.
They'll be their cooperative, angelic selves (deceptive little brats...er...darlings that they are)...
and they shall have LOTS of catnip when we get home.

The Gogh Beastie doesn't have to go in until Sept/Oct (IIRC), but I've pretty much decided to start rounding up cats that seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in my yard and get them vaccinated if they aren't chipped. I have no idea how I'll afford that, because it's spendy out here, but I really don't want to risk another tear filled journey to see Dr H about a critically ill cat.

I still miss my Moo Kitty Sissy Doodles so much it hurts. :'-( She was my mean little baby. Happier thoughts... I need happier thoughts...

catmandu: Today is Hector's first birthday! He has been with me for a little over 5 months now and is just the silliest and sweetest cat. He was the perfect addition to the household to help me heal over the loss of Mandu (who I still miss every day but the heart pain is much less).

How can you cry when being forced to look in this face every time you sit down at the computer?

[i283.photobucket.com image 592x650]

Here he is snuggling in the rocking chair:

Anyone can do that? 'Cos taking 2 animals at a time to the vet is a huge PITA. The dogs, not so bad, but the cats were a nightmare. Mickey/Jazzy are fine in the car but Ripley/Jasper need to be confined. AARRGGHH (Tuesday for the cats, Friday for the dogs). Luckily Mrs. Buck accompanied me/us both times so it was bearable.

At ft of Lucky Seeming Pg7:
Pic 1, same medal for Pig Walk as last yr. Ribbon printed differently.
Pic 2, for Hector, saved 3-8-13 when spinach gunk fetched it for someone or somecat other's Natal Anniv, Gotcha Day or similar.
Pig Walk not as enjoyable this yr as last, 99.4% own fault. Ignored or misread directions, began from wrong location so no rendezvous  with chorus mates until all finnished. Walk T appears to be brown this time; won't get one as pick-up directions next to absent for early collectors of numbered bibs.
Chorusmate didn't get bib yesterday but today just prior to start, given Walk T to wear.
Purrsonal time was 1:02:06 from initial start.  Chorus mate who got us into this managed :54.  Had rendezvous  been possible,. I couldn't've kept up.
Coulda picked up cue as Plumbicon's chorus mates all got theirs ahead of time.
i.imgur.comThis has Pigcasso on front; brown Walk Ts didn't appear to. At least these'll be loud enough at 5:30AM reporting time.
Pl's concerned tho that sound trailer might not be allowed in; he didn't think of this til last eve, already too late to seek clearance.  Org said backpacks wouldna be allowed this yr, but I saw some little ones worn.  Also saw at last 4 goggies walking 5k w their masters/ mistresses; one bitty Yorkie needed run to keep up, but also bitty enough to be carried from time to time.
