Post by: Cheri on May 19, 2010, 03:47:43 PM
Feel free to come here to chat with friends about what's going on in your life. Good or bad.

It's your water cooler. Take a cup and replenish yourself. (http://i558.photobucket.com/albums/ss26/CSBDan/Smilies/1sm336watercooler.gif)

I personally like getting to know my online family as much as I like getting to know the BB houseguest.

Thanks Cheri, and welcome to all who are gearing up for the upcoming BB season....I personally love a water cooler! Especially those kind that make the hot water too so I can get a cup of tea!  ;D :D I've got TWO kids home from college, bored already, one leaves for gainful employment (YAY!) tomorrow and one in two weeks for summer classes. Then I get my TV and my car back!

I'll be happy to hang out by the water cooler and chat with anyone who wants too!!! So does anyone have any interesting things going on or any good stories to tell? "Angelwings"

Hey, Skotie, I've been at an awful film location with a bunch of idiots and I'm literally sitting here feeling my blood pressure lower.   >:(  REDRUM!

I'll be on this project for about 8 more days and I CAN'T WAIT for it to go away.  Won't be around here much, but things will get better.

Lots of people tonight at the water cooler.

Brad, how was work? Angel, I have stories, but Darrin's are better and they involve a skunk. Skotie! I've been missing you all day, isn't it about time you and I share a nice cold one? Red, I knew you'd like the cooler so we can gather around and gossip. Annie, my NY gal, what's going on with you tonight?

Hey Darrin, where'd you get to? You have a skunk story to tell. Oh and don't forget the one about the gecko.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: ChiBrad on May 20, 2010, 12:18:31 AM
Not a good day, Cheri.  I'm putting on my shoes to go get cigarettes, something I haven't had in a long time.  Be back in about 20 min... :-\


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 20, 2010, 12:27:20 AM
Sorry to hear you had a rotten day. I'll have a cold one waiting for you when you get back.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Skotie68 on May 20, 2010, 12:47:30 AM
No worries Cherri.  I can provide the story.

So one night my wife wakes me up and says she hears a sound in the hallway.  I wake up and hear this loud scratching sound  coming from my front door, inside the house. Its very dark and scary.  My wife tells me to go get the kids and I tell her "you go get the kids... what the hell is that?"  Yes, I'm very brave.  So I open my bedroom sliding door to get my two big black labs and I let them in the house.  They go running down the hallway  towards the front door, slide past it on the hard wood floors when they notice the sound and obviously see something.  They gather their footing and head back to the front door, disappearing out of my sight.  About 3 seconds later they come running back around the corning and run right past me outside.  I look down the hallway and what do I see waddle on past.....A skunk!  And yes, it did spray. 

So the skunk goes walking into my family room.  I get the nerves to go look for it, taking one chair at a time, stepping on one and pulling one the next chair in front to step on.  I finally see it cornered itself under the couch..  Now I'm thinking, how the hell do I get this out of my house.  It's 3:00am in the morning.  So I go open the garage door, get some lego's from my kids room, and head back to my chairs.  I start launching lego's behind the couch trying to get the sucker to move.  No luck.  He stays there for about 30 minutes.  Then, without warning, calmly starts walking out towards the garage door.  On his way past me, he stopped and  looked at me with what I swear looked like a snarly ass grin, then continued to waddle out. 

It's at that point I realize skunks could rule the world if they could fly or had just one other power.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 20, 2010, 12:51:14 AM
OMG, that's one hillarious story Skotie! But tell me, how on earth did that skunk manage to get in your house to begin with?


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Skotie68 on May 20, 2010, 12:59:07 AM
A most excellent question!  Most likely it was when I went to read goodnight stories to my kids.  I opened that same sliding door in my bedroom and left it open for about 30 minutes right after dusk when I was reading.  I closed it after I finished up putting getting them down for the night but the sucker must have waddled in during that time.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

You keep it shut now, right?


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: ChiBrad on May 20, 2010, 01:02:28 AM
Awsome, Skotie!  I've had bats before, but never a skunk.  I come from the backwoods in MI and I had many run-ins with skunks outside, but never in the house!


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Skotie68 on May 20, 2010, 01:16:39 AM
I'll be in MI for 2 weeks during the 4th of July.  My wife is from there.  We just bought some land on Gun Lake in freesoil (near luddington).  I have not even seen the land yet other then from google earth.  lol


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 20, 2010, 01:22:12 AM
I've had an ongoing hate relationship with the same skunk for many years. Luckily, it hasn't shown up in a few weeks. I've tried everything from coyote urine to bullets. We are mortal enemies. You never want to see a skunk from this angle:

Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: ChiBrad on May 20, 2010, 01:23:41 AM
Skotie, I'm from such a small town in MI (pop.400) that it doesn't even show up on Google Earth.  It's just a blur!  I couldn't wait to move to the city!


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Skotie68 on May 20, 2010, 01:30:29 AM
Chibrad

"Free Soil is a village in Mason County of the U.S. state of Michigan.. As of the 2000 census, the village population was 177."

So thats sort of Funny.  You growing up in a small town wanting to get out to the big city.  Me growing up in big City in Ca, wanting to get out to a small town.  lol.  We plan on building a big Bed and Breakfast and go retire out there in our early 50's.  Don't quite know how a California boy will adjust to a town of 177.  I'll have to take up widdling wood.  It doesn't snow does it. lol.   I am making sure we keep our house out here just in case.

Cherri
Yes, that door stays shut.  I have not made that mistake again. 


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: ChiBrad on May 20, 2010, 01:42:39 AM
Oh, Skotie, I'm afraid you'll be in for a little culture shock.   :o  It's a different world, that's for sure.  177!  The floor of my apt. building has that many people!  Is it a resort town?  There are many of those in MI that have a busy summer.  Summers are nice and autumns are beautiful, but it's a long, cold winter.  Chicago is cold, MI shares the same weather but you have the "lake effect", too cold winds blowing off the great lakes.  Keeping your old place might be a good idea.

Darrin, have you considered a trap.  I don't know what you do with a skunk in a trap, though.   ???


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

Not a good day, Cheri.  I'm putting on my shoes to go get cigarettes, something I haven't had in a long time.  Be back in about 20 min... :-\
oHHHHHHH Chi Brad don't do it!!! I quit a year ago next week. Not a single day goes by I don't want one......Loved it! Would go back to it in a heartbeat if somebody could read into my future and tell me I won't die.....I have had 4 friends die from some sort of Cancer in the last year and would be really pissed at myself if I did something like that to help it along. Don't do it.... Yup, me preaching...sorry.

Well, just as the swampy smell had finally dissipated, we get an unforcasted flash flood. Not too bad, but it sure revived the odor. On top of that there is a strange breed of flies, that, well, seem to be foolish. They buzz around you, land, and then when you get ready to kill them, they don't move. I could pick these thing up. They give their lives willingly. I call them "Kamikaze Flies".

Yeah, I'm here.

If the fields around you are fermenting, maybe it's intoxicating the water their breeding in.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 26, 2010, 01:04:21 AM
I never thought of that. Weirdest thing. It's like they're drunk.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 26, 2010, 01:22:18 AM
Wheat, barley or corn are used in some alcohol. If you have that around you, those flies probably are drunk.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 26, 2010, 01:33:57 AM
We don't have that here, but the flooding creek could have brought some down here. I may call the COOP tomorrow. They are larger that regular house flies.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 26, 2010, 02:12:37 AM
It's best you do that cause if you don't they might end up as big as birds! LOL!


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

Oh great! Bird size drunken flies. Just what I need.  :(

Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 26, 2010, 02:40:14 AM
Oh, I'm sure he's still there somewhere. You haven't seen the last of that critter.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 26, 2010, 05:06:24 PM
Well, we called the COOP and the feed store and they had never heard of flies acting drunk. I then tried a pest control service. They said it's weather related. That these flies reproduce in a 24 hour cycle and die. So what we have here are essentially already dying flies. We just expedite the process. I thing the feed store and COOP thought we were nuts. Case solved.  :)


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 26, 2010, 05:17:39 PM
Never tell your spouse to kill a fly if it lands on you. I just got whacked in the back of the head. She did kill it though.  :(


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: redhed on May 27, 2010, 10:32:10 PM
Intoxicated is a nice  :) way to put it. Developmentally Disabled is another, Mentally challenged is another.......We get them here in NYS and I think it's the change in weather. They can't adjust to the COLD - HOT - COLD - HOT.......That shouldn't be the case where you are though..... maybe it is the fermentation in the water....


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 27, 2010, 11:03:40 PM
It's strange. We have not seen one fly today. Mother Nature is sure messed up.

Not a good start to my day. You know how Jehovah's Witnesses come to your house and pester you? I just had a first. I had a damn satanist out here in the boondocks! Telling me how his return would be soon and he would retake his kingdom. I'll admit I've had a exhausting week, so these two dudes picked the wrong house with the wrong tired guy in it. Let me just say that their visit was cut short and their departure expedited.  >:(

PS: I don't care what individuals believe in, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone, but don't push it down my throat.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: redhed on May 29, 2010, 01:25:37 PM
Well Darrin, now I've heard it all. Was the Satanist dressed in a suit with a nametag? Or long flowing black robe..... :o Just trying to get a mental picture here. Have a better day. It can only get better from here, right?

Maybe they're like crickets.....Supposed to be good luck if you have one in your house...Although, I never could figure out why since the noise used to DRIVE me out of my mind :o :o :o My husband is no help, so I catch them in a paper cup and let them outside.

Don't you just hate it when you are sooo tired that you fall asleep (nap or whatever) and when you wake up, you've left an actual puddle of drool, or you've slept so long the drool has dried??????? When my kids were little I was so sleep deprived I used to fall asleep if I stopped moving.... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D now I'm just old.....

Sorry about that Darrin, didn't mean that to happen. It's been overly wet here and the mosquito's are out in force and I just know it's not going to comfortable in my backyard because of that.

Mosquitoes are terrible here as well. We are also experiencing an outbreak of Stick Bugs. (http://www.thenakedvegan.net/images/smilies/Invertebrates/0023Stick%20Bug.gif)

So far, so good spinelli. The mosquito's seem not to know the way to my backyard...yet. However, being bombarded by butterflies is something I didn't expect. These daredevils will actually flutter all over the place and land on heads, shoulders, etc. Don't have any idea what's up with that. My cats are having a blast chasing and trying to catch them though and it's quite entertaining. If I can get a pic of that, I'll post it.

Correct. I can't emphasize enough to people to get really good anti-virus/anti-spyware protection. Good protection is constantly updating for the latest threats. A few years ago the Blaster Worm wreaked havoc everywhere. Don't want to go through that again.

When I was a young buck, I had a water bed. I got home late one night, jumped in my bed only to land on one of these with my butt. Scorpions are drawn to water. Since then, I've become paranoid of them. They hurt worse than you can imagine. At least it wasn't my front side, though.

I grow tomatoes too!  I like to hunt the tomato horn worms and feed them to my turtles. Have any of you ever seen a tomato horn worm? The first time I ever saw one, I must have jumped a foot or two straight up. To me, they look like a thrashing light green  disembodied finger with a hook on the end. Thankfully Yertle and Franklin (my turtles) absolutely love them.

Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

Yes, I'm familiar with those worms. Squishy things! It's cool that your turtles enjoy them. They can get pretty big.

Yep, those tomato horn worms sure are a squishy mess. That's why when a worm is found for sacrifice, Franklin & Yertle get fed in a separate tank.

Ftlbeachbum: I feel your pain. If I could ship some of my brandywine tomatoes to you, I would. I've got three or four different varieties growing this year. The brandywines grow to be a pound or two in size and a single slice of one of these tomato will cover an entire slice of bread.  I've got some zebra striped, little yellow pear, and some kind of roma tomatoes as well. Usually, the dry hot weather here is perfect for tomato growing, hence our un-official nickname: Sacra-tomato. This year however, we're enjoying exceptionally mild temperatures so all my fruit is still green. Once the inevitable heat wave hits, I'm gonna have an absolute embarassment of tomatoes.

You just can't find good tasting tomatoes in grocery stores. I even canned my own. Delicious! I think the largest I ever grew was a bit over two pounds. It was beautiful, if I don't say so myself.  :)

I sooo know what you mean Darrin!  It's hard not to brag when your tomatoes get big enough to surprise/impress even you! I found my tomato plants on Craigslist, of all places. The guy offers to throw in a free one if you promise to plant it in your FRONT yard.  :D

redhead: I quite agree! Eating my little yellow pear tomatoes off the vine is like hunting for easter eggs. I love bringing my grandson out to hunt for ripe fruit as much as he loves gobbling them down.

Actually I think the few down here that have some luck growing them do better in the Spring and Fall. You have to really readjust your thinking in South Florida as far as gardening goes.

What a clever idea! I also use old knee highs to tie-up my melons\pumpkins so that they don't separate from the vine too soon (like when they get kicked or jostled by a clumsy gardener  :-\).

OK you " 'mater-heads"...I'm very jealous. But at least right now we've got TONS of mangoes (sp?) which I love. Everytime I walk my dogs I just reach up and pluck a few off the neighbor's trees. (Don't worry, they're happy for me to do it) There are so many cool and delicious things you can do with them.

Peel and cube 2-3 large ripe mangoes and throw them into a blender (without the big seed LOL), add some sugar, a healthy quantity of light rum (Bacardi, Malibu), some orange juice and a splash of cranberry juice and club soda...add ice to fill blender and turn on.

It' a wonderful drink for a hot summer afternoon/evening...and if you're not a drinker leave out the rum and you've got a great smoothie ;)

Sounds delicious!  I'm going to have to try that.  My old faithful summer drink is pineapple juice and Malibu.  Might need to run to the store to pick up some mangos and have that with tonight's show.   ;D

There are a zillion varieties and I don't know their names (they come from India originally). The most common ones around here are the large, oval, green ones with a little pink at the top. I like them a lot better than the yellow ones and they have much more "meat". When I pick 'em they are hard and I just put them in the kitchen window until they are just slightly soft to the touch.

I'm still around ... didn't abandoned the site.
You're right, seems to have gone idle. 
Sometimes, feels like I'm chatting with myself.  I do that plenty, without needing to type!   :D


So my what's new (hopefully, I will not be chatting to myself) ....
For Thanksgiving, we went to visit one of my grandma's and that side of the family.
When we got to to her house, she had piles of 'things' scattered in the dining room and says, "Take what you want.  Otherwise, it's going to Helping Hands."  Apparently, this has been going on and my family that lives there already was called upon to take things home.  I greatly have mixed emotions about it all.  - She is a very strong independent woman so I'm not sure where this is coming from.  She has been asked many times in the past to move into an assisted living home and her answer is always, "HELL NO, If I cannot take care of myself then take me out to th pasture." 
I was there wondering why all of a sudden she wanted to get rid of things and why it comes out for 2 months she has been calling my family there to help her "clean out house" and get what they want.  Was a sad moment.  On top of that, my cousin had a baby back in July and when we were there this time, the baby wouldn't let me hold her without crying so I didn't get my baby fix!   :( :'(

Now, I've moved on the to having the Christmas spirit spread across my house.  Just about have the inside all done. 
I love this time of year ... minus the cold!
My FIL comes to town this week bc./ his brother is having surgery at the Med. center here.  My daughters and husband love spending time with him so that should be good.

Anyways, now, I feel like I'm on a self help board! ;D  I talk too much! :-[ :-X
Peace Out and I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving.

Great to hear from you mellb! That is odd, but very familiar. Is your grandma's health okay? Maybe not telling anyone?

Let me put your fears to rest mellb.

My mother and later on my mother-in-law did the same thing as your grandmother did. It's not anything to be upset over. She's simply paring down the stuff cluttering her closets and such and wants to see all of you enjoy her things as much as she has over the years.

When my mom did it, it seemed out of character too. In talking to her a few years later she revealed as she'd gotten older she didn't need so much stuff taking up closet space and tabletops. She pointed out she'd enjoyed the various items for a long time and knew it was time to let them go to new homes. I'll have you know I use her electric roaster every Thanksgiving and the end tables I grew up with became our bedside stands. I still use a couple of her lamps and her old fashioned metal meat grinder that I make ham salad with.

Enjoy the things that came from grandma and when the time comes, pass them along.

Thank you!  Nice to hear from you as well and seeing people come out and talk on here.   ;)
My grandma is 89 and this past year she is in and out of the hospital every 4 months for various things.  The last time in Sept., she had fallen and hurt her shoulder.  She does have heart conditions and has had a few operations for that throughout the years.  Basically, IMO, she does not need to live at home by herself.  In Sept., I tried to talk her into having someone come and stay without her throughout the day but she wouldn't hear of it. 
I have very strong family values and my family means a great deal to me.  However, it is very hard to loose your loved ones, maintain oneself when they are suffering, and watch people age and grow old.

Cheer is a good thing to have and makes me sad for you to say it lacks for ya'll.  You could head over this way ... although, it might make ya'll vomit a little bit in your mouth if holiday spirit is not your forte.  LOL ;D ;D :-\

Yes, I had thought that way too. I think it was just some of the things she said and the fact that it came out she had been doing this since she came home from the hospital in Sept.

Her health issues probably played a big part in deciding to give things away and at her age she likely decided she didn't need some of those things any longer. It sounds like grandma is quite independent and if so, will resist any well meaning attempt to get her to agree to move into assisted living. This is something that needs to be her idea so in th emeantime drop hints and ask all family members to check in on her often to see if she needs anything. The day will come when she'll be ready to move but until then or if something happens, let her enjoy what little time she may have in her own home.

We've been having a mice problem. Field mice. But this is hard to believe. I set out traps to catch them. A couple of days ago,
I got up to see if I has any success. One on my traps was gone. Okay, that's happened once before. Now we need to start smelling
for it. No luck. I set a new trap in the exact same place. Snap! I thought nothing of it, until I saw my missing trap on his ass. Mice
aren't to smart apparently. I know, too much info.

Your post count is up to 732 now.

I don't know about the post count working or not.  I don't pay attention to it.
I have noticed that when I click view unread posts, it gives me nothing.  Yet, there is unread posts and the 'new' icon still shows which posts I haven't read.
I've noticed the same thing and have discovered the site seems to reset the "Unread posts since last visit" counter every 12 hours.

Another thing the site does or doesn't do is properly indicate when a topic is hot with active posting. It will however, show an older topic is hot if someone posts just once to it, with flames off to the side. Topics like this or those active ones in Everything Else don't show those flames despite being very active.

It's not a big deal, just weird.

Is the 12 hour reset for unread posts, something different?
I thought on here, it used to indicate to you regardless of it being less or more then 12 hours?
Seems like I only noticed it not dong it yesterday or the day before.

For me, I noticed it happening last summer especially on topics I don't participate in. To clarify, I don't think it happens to those who post in all topics. At least I don't think it does it every time.

Sharting would be the least of your problems with that transplant. The ick factor is enormous!

Whether done by nose mouth or rectum, how in the world would anyone be able to look their doctor in the eye again. Worse yet, how does one's doctor announce to his patient that he can cure you but you have to wait for someone to have a bowel movement they can puree and use.

Oddly enough (and since you two seem to be in a joking mood) my morning joke text was about twit.

For sometime many of us have wondered who is Jack twit?
We find ourselves at a loss when somebody says,
"You don't know Jack twit?!"
Well, thanks to my efforts you can now respond in an intellectual manner.
Jack twit is the one and only son of Awe twit who married O'twit.
In turn, Jack twit married Noe twit.
The couple had 6 children:Holie twit, Giva twit, Fulla twit, Bull twit
and the twins, Deep twit and Dip twit.
Deep twit married Dumb twit a high school drop out.  After 15 years, Jack and Noe twit got divorced and she married Ted Sherlock and became Noe twit Sherlock.  Meanwhile, Dip twit married Lota twit and had a rather nervous disposition named, Chicken twit.  Fulla twit and Give twit married the Happens brothers in a double wedding. The newspapers invited everyone to the "twit - Happens" wedding.  Bull twit traveled the world and returned home with an Italian bride, Pisa twit. 
So from now on, no one can tell you that you don't know Jack twit!
 ;D

(I think that's the most, I've written that word.)
It was just too funny not to share.

The video of CBS reporter Serene Branson's on-air speech problem went viral last week, and while it obviously entertained the Internet, it was Branson's condition that concerned people the most. Luckily, the reporter's confusing verbal breakdown was not linked to a stroke or other more serious condition, but a migraine. Now that we know Branson's on the mend, it seems the report may have not been a mistake at all...it simply may have been a coded message intended specifically for Captain Jean-Luc Picard.  ;D

Yeah, saw it when the show was on. Poor Maks! I hope it doesn't affect the viewer votes because I so like seeing him with whoever he's paired with. This season it just happens to be Kirstie and for a big girl she's surprisingly light on her feet.

Wow. What happened? I tried to go to this site a couple of days ago and I couldn't get on without logging in. Of course, I couldn't remember my password from long ago so I had to have a new one emailed to me which took a bunch of tries (said sending email but didn't). Did something change with this site or did my recent computer updates cause this? It didn't affect my other sites. Just wondering...Cherie? Darrin?

Anyway, it's nice to be back ;D

What a morning! I try to word this carefully. Nature called and I had to
go to the potty. As I was taking down my shorts, I noticed something
in the bowl. The toilet is black, so it was kinda hard to make out. I looked
closer, and damn if it wasn't a mouse in there drinking water  :o. He's in the septic tank
after putting up an impressive struggle.

The drought down here is causing field mice to try to find water. So, to be safe,
before you sit down, look around.

Don't be so hard on yourself. If it were me, using the pic as an avatar would work better since it automatically resizes it to smaller scale which is easier on the eyes and takes up less space.

Arnie and Maria Shriver are seperating and he's returning to 'acting'.

AND more to the story.

And the plot thickens. What a butthead!
I knew there was more to it than met the eye.

I'm as disgusted by the verdict as you both are and am profoundly sad that little Caylee's death will never be justified. Think of this, she's been dead longer than she was alive and her life has now been reduced to an afterthought.

What I hope happens is that when Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez (the real one not the fantasy Zanny the nanny) has her defamation suit heard, that she wins and that any and all proceeds from movies and book deals Casey enters into goes to her.

Casey may have been proven not guilty in a court of law, however the court of public opinion is far more powerful and will have longer lasting repercussions for a long time.

Thanks Darrin. After sleeping on it I am inclined to think the jury just chose to not use common sense when they rendered that verdict. An alternate juror who had no jury vote said last night he thought George lied about something and th eProsecution lacked enough evidence to prove Casey did it.

If only they'd heard what we all know. Remember, the jury was removed many times when other witnesses testimony was being decided as to whether it should be heard.

You've seen or heard the clips, with the aunt going on local radio/t.v. stations welcoming her with open arms?
I'm thinking this woman is stupid (and dangerous like the rest of them) or some reverse psy. move. 
How many bands of people do you think will be waiting for her arrival and no not the kindly type of her aunt's?
This is all pathetic!

Casey Anthony is a free woman. She was released at 12:10 Am EST this morning.

A baby killer walks the streets and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

On a side note, there's rumors that George has said Casey is not welcome at his and Cindy's house and he's signed the online petition for Caylee's Law.

I think sooner or later, Casey A will come to a bad end. She knows what she did. It will either eat her up over time , or she will let her guard down at the wrong time and place. All actions have consequences, hers are just on hold.

I looked at the video of her walking around and going into a store near the OSU campus and am scratching my head as to why she was dressed in heavy jeans and a t-shirt in the 95+ heat we were having. She apparently didn't realize she was being filmed because she didn't try to hide either. LOL, I chuckled as the vid shows her walking past some people on the sidewalk and they never even looked at her.

You can have her because we don't want her here Darrin.

I saw the video also.....its shocking, right....i noticed that she is putting on some weight, especially on her butt, i guess she's been eating way too much, hiding out for so long...... :D

i know why darrin wants her in texas...i just spoke to my cousin that's been living in texas for the past 34 yrs and he told me that people in texas are allowed to own guns and if someone breaks in ur homes, you are allowed to shoot them...it called the "Castle Doctrine"...its legal to shoot them and they will do it.....OMG i couldnt believe it... i thought i was living the dangerous life here in crazy NYC, my whole life.....so darrin get ur gun ready for when Casey decides to go down there..... ;D

Same here. I usually check in once a day but my timing must suck too 'cause there's never anyone here. I seem to remember a bit more active off-season last year. Maybe everyone's out enjoying the beautiful Fall weather and when Winter sets in and the folks up North are freezing their asses off the forum will become a bit more active.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on October 12, 2011, 02:41:42 PM
I think it was more active last year because it got cold so fast almost everywhere. I know I hunkered down on my off days and spent hours here. I guess we'll all need to coordinate a time when we'll all be around at the same time.

Hope all is going well with ya'll.

All is well with me here working hard and keeping my nose to the grindstone. I'll be glad when December is over and my hours go back to normal. Don't get me wrong, the extra money is nice but I seldom have time to myself anymore.

I noticed the game threads hitting a brick wall too and hope they will pick up again sooner or later. Starting some new ones will be a breath of fresh air and if anyone can think of any, we can try them out.

Darrin, I've been looking around and see some of the MIA's haven't been here in a week. That's not a good sign. I realize the holidays are fast approaching and figure some may be busy with that. Hopefully it'll pick up afterward.

Next time just say howdy and believe me you'll get a response.

I check in here in the wee hours after work and just before I shut the computer off for the night. This OT is killing me and I cannot wait for the holidays to be over and they haven't even started yet. Next week I actually don't have to go in early so you will see me here before work more often.

Brides of Beverly Hills was a hoot but you could tell it was a publicity stunt. It is Rachel after all.

I wouldn't know what to do if I had unlimited money. Spend it I guess and pay enormous taxes. I hope you heal from the injury spinelli and can get that cast off before Christmas. I'm sure your family wants you better too.

Darrin, I am going to brave the crowds and shop on Black Friday. It's been years since I've done it and since I'm working Thanksgiving night and Walmart starts their sale at 10 pm, I've decided to do it again. Hubby is in charge of getting there when it starts to secure a cart, otherwise there will be none left at 11:30 when I arrive.

Until tomorrow folks.............


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Ftlbeachbum on November 21, 2011, 03:36:42 PM
Oh Cheri, good luck to you on Black Friday. I wouldn't go to a store that day if my life depended on it. My Christmas giftees have dwindled down over time to my two nieces and we kinda have a tradition of my getting them some really cool and different earrings/jewelry so I only have to go to specialty stores and not the crazy big box places. I'll be thinking about you.

WOOHOO!  If I take, a week long sabbatical from here, I can come back, and have new posts to read.
 

Cheri ~ you're a brave woman to deal with the black Friday madness.  I wish you a ton of luck and will be thinking of you.
Hope you get some good deals and it's not too insane.

Spinelli ~ sorry to hear about your wrist.  How'd you break it?  That has to be frustrating, being right handed and not being able to use it.


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on November 23, 2011, 04:23:35 AM
There you are mellb!

I'm headed to the sales after I get off work Thursday night so hopefully it won't be as crazy than if I were to go during the day when those with kids in tow are blocking every aisle. I actually have no idea what I'm shopping for either and that's the fun of it. I've seen the flyers and heard others talking about this and that and what electonics they hope to snag, but I'm just going to go and take it all in and maybe catch some good bargains for gifts. If not, I know I can shop online and snag some good deals and avoid the hassle of store hoofing altogether. I'll let you all know how everything goes.

Nah. Walmart doesn't close and will be open all day and their sales begin at 10 pm, midnight and then at 8:30 am. I'll leave from work and go directly there around 11:30 pm, hopefully do some shopping and go home. I'm not into crowds shoving and acting foolish so the rest of my shopping will be done at local stores and online.

Nice to see someone referencing my all time favorite band...Pink Floyd.

Been busy today grooming and then bathing my big old dog. It was gonna be my last chance to do it outside before the cold snap (high 70s, low 50s) hits tomorrow. Whew, I'm whupped. Anybody else have as exciting a day as I on this Cyber Monday? BTW Cheri, did you survive Black Friday or did you get crushed in the mob?


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

Only the thing I have found today is an internet security software. 90% off.

We had our first freeze last night, so we're colder that you are Ftl.  :-\

Cheri, did you manage to get one of those $2 waffle irons?  ;D


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on November 29, 2011, 02:49:22 AM
I survived Black Friday!

No, I didn't get a $2 waffle maker Darrin but I did snag a 40" Emerson Flat screen tv. I also got some DVD's for $1.98 for the grandkids.

The crowd at Walmart was amazing. Hubby remarked they had to have exeeded the firecode limit by a couple thousand people. For the most part there were no fights or problems and people behaved themselves and it was fun. Hubby arrived at 9 pm, secured a shopping cart and waited in the tv line. By the time I got there at 11:30 I knew I could go to the electronic section and get in line for the DVD's. After we had our goodies, we looked around in the clothing section, which was mostly absent of shoppers. I picked up a pea coat for $20, which incidentally was the cyber Monday price online, lol.

The Thanksgiving leftovers are long gone and a distant memory until next year. Now that I'm in the Christmas spirit, I'm ready for ham or maybe a nice roast.

I was in bed reaching for the lamp switch on my night stand. I almost had it when I lost my balance,

Major pain. Plus I was stuck there for awhile.

Say WHAT?  You could've at least given us a good ole' juicy story of you breaking your arm getting out of bed.   ;D ;D ;D

Was told to keep it as still as possible. Easier said than done. The break was halfway
between my shoulder and elbow. A bad place to stabilize. I may make a sling for
myself.  :-\

Ah, that explains alot. My son broke his arm in the same area and they wouldn't put a cast on it since it was considered a clean break. They gave him a sling and told us to place it tightly against his body and not allow major movements. Yeah right, he was 6 years old. Try making a rambunctious child be still and not use the arm.

You can get a sling at any drug store or even Walmart. You can even fashion a sling from a bath towel. I hope it heals properly for you and stops hurting soon.

I did some more shopping tonight after getting off work. I love shopping when there's less people around to get in the way. Tonight was for the grandkids gifts and I was pleasantly surprised as close to Christms as it is that there's still quite alot on the racks and shelves.

I bought local to support our economy here and stayed away from online shopping. That doesn't mean I didn't look online first, it was cheaper to go to the stores and buy gifts this year.

I wrapped the grandkids gifts last night so that's out of the way. Now to sit back and wait for Christmas Day.

Well, Bah Humbug to me. South Florida must have pissed off Santa because about 8:00 tonight there was a major water main break resulting in no water for Fort Lauderdale and about 5 other cities in Broward County, including mine. Over 250,000 homes are affected. It "may" be fixed by sometime tomorrow or maybe not. Then boiled water advisory for 24 hours.

How long has this been going on now?
About time they gave you some pain medicine?  I can't believe they didn't sooner.
Are you saying you have to wait until Feb. to get into the ortho. surgeon?  I know they take awhile to get into.  I just wish your doctor would have realized the problem sooner when it happened.  Hoping you start to get some answers, help, and healing soon.
Still sending you BIG HUGS!

So, what's up with everyone these days?

Was wondering what was going on with you.  Thinking your schedule was going to get better and help jump start this place a tad.

If you haven't noticed, we seem to have a lack of conversation pieces so maybe a good long story would do us good.  LOL   ;D
I hope all is well with whatever is going on and you're back around soon.

As for me, my schedule will get a bit better.  My oldest daughter just finished basketball season so that's behind us, until track meets start up.   (If she'll do track like I'm encouraging her too.)  Now we're just busy with finishing up Teens for Jeans for their commuity service project for the month. 
Oh and did I mention we're in the middle of a remodel and completely painting the entire house ourselves.  What was I thinking????   ???  Someone just hit me with a frying pan.   :o  Anyways, that's a bit of my going on's lately.  Do miss you all and our chatter.

I'm thinking, I could use a little male model eye candy in my life.  LOL   ;D
Might be asking for way too much though, for them to throw in some good personailty types and change it up a bit.
Do you think we'll get some of the same faces as reappearances?  I'm passed being tired of seeing Jessie!  ::)


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler

I don't want to see Jesse anymore than you do melb. If anything, I'm hoping there willbe at least two, maybe three HG with pleasing personalities. I know it's asking for too much, but I can hope. In a perfect BB there would be people of all types, real as we are and no previous tv or celeb affilliations. The minute I hear someone say they know so and so, I tune them out and don't bother to take them serious. 


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: mellb823 on February 28, 2012, 02:14:42 PM
I agree, 'real' people would be nice. It gets a bit old, with the revolving door, of those trying to get a foot in the door to celebrityville.


On another note, I'm feeling 'real' with actually having a conversation with another on here.   :D

Darrin I'm here, just not at the same time as anyone else it seems.

I'm bummed that my yummy Maks was eliminated from DWTS. Oh yeah, along with his partner Melissa Gilbert and her weird facial expressions and attitude too. I'll still watch the show but have no clear favorite that I want to win.

Did you catch the finale of TAR on Sunday? Who would have thought Brenchel would make it to 3rd place? I didn't care for the winners Rachel and Dave. He's all gung ho while she doesn't have any eyebrows, lol!

What's new with you?


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 15, 2012, 01:59:29 PM
Alrighty then....

I just noticed the last time anyone posted anywhere on the forum was 5 days ago. That said, I'm going to make a concentrated effort to be on the forum daily around 1 pm and again around 1 AM EST, you all can figure out the difference in your own time zones. I don't know how long I'll be on during those times as it could be a few minutes or maybe a few hours. The point is, I'll be here for conversation and hopefully some BB banter.

I really hope to see all of you as we gear up for anothe season of Expect the Unexpected!

Darrin, I'm still waiting to find out what's new with you :)


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Darrin on May 15, 2012, 02:14:05 PM
Hi Cheri. Still hanging in there helping the wife through some
health issues. I still need my arm worked on as well.  :-\

I got my system upgraded and it's really cool. Ready for BB.  :)


Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on May 16, 2012, 02:49:27 AM
Darrin did you get Windows 7? When I got my new computer I wasn't sure I'd like it but now I don't know what took me so long. I absolutely love its ease of use. The transparent background took a bit getting used to but I found a work around to it by tweaking the colors to my liking.

Sorry to hear your honey is having health issues. I hope she'll soon be back to her chipper self again. As for your arm, it's been a few months since all that happened so if you need it worked on I hope you find a good doctor to do the surgery.

Okay, you and I are accounted for but what happened to everybody else?

I'm here and ready for BB to start back up again.  Until about a month ago and for about 6-8 months before I was unable to log into this forum (the forum wouldn't let me sign in for some reason) and I had almost resigned myself to not being able to use the forum to discuss BB.  But luckily I had decided to try to erase the cookie for my sign in info and then try to sign in and it worked!!  So I am here and ready to roll!

It's good to know you're okay FtlBeach. We worry about our little family here when something like this happens.

Today is a monumentally historic day for all of us. The Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate in the Obama Care bill. IMO, whether we like it or not this is a turning point for America that makes our country less of a super power and more of a socialist nation.

I'm disappointed with the decision mainly due to the Supreme Court stating it is a tax. I do not have a problem with any other portion of the bill but I despise the Government requiring us to purchase a product that cannot be opted out of. To quote Justice Roberts whose vote hinged on SCOTUS passage, "The individual mandate, however, does not regulate existing commercial activity. It instead compels individuals to become active in commerce by purchasing a product, on the ground that their failure to do so affects interstate commerce."

What I am curious about is that as soon as the SCOTUS decision came out the GOP Leadership then decides that they are going to try to repeal Obama-Care and I want to know why they decided to wait until the ruling to try it?  I guess the big problem right now is even if they get the votes they will then have to gather the 2/3 vote in order to override the veto that would be sure to come.  So to get past this they probably would need to get better control of both houses and to make things easier make sure that Obama is defeated in November and then go after it in late January or February when the House and Senate have their new members and the White House will have new management.

It's a sticky situation but basically what happened is Justice Roberts in upholding the mandate, forced the real decision on the fate of Affordable Care onto the voters backs. The Supreme Court only decided the mandate part, not the overall bill. There's plenty of talk about repealing the entire bill, however, something found to be constitutional cannot be repealed in portions. Since it cannot go back to the Justices for a revote, the House of Representatives can only overturn the decision made yesterday.

This (http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/could-republicans-really-repeal-obamacare-091546012.html) should help answer some of that. Thing is, Romney did almost the exact same thing as governor of Massachusetts. Not much to stand on there.

Fear breeds more fear and so on. Our Government has gotten too big for it's britches and uses fear tactics to keep us in line. Think back 40 years ago when life was pretty much carefree and we didn't have "Big Brother" dictating our every move. I'm not saying it was better then, just less stressful in many ways.

It is a sad commentary on our country that this kind of tripe is so common. the morning after the election on another board I visit someone had posted this link - http://jezebel.com/5...lected/gallery/ - caution it is worse than the odd f*** or a$$h*le I might type in a drunken state  ... showing tweets by young people so filled with hate that I was honestly shocked...not something easily done to this old cornhole, I promise you!


and to think I went to war to fight and watched friends die for the right of these people (and I use that term loosely) to tweet til their hearts are content...seems like a waste at times like these... :'(

I will say I thought the photo spread, further down that page you linked on states/groups that have tried to get secession laws passed was funny...I guess they forgot how that turned out last time!

It is too bad that these people can't accept that Romney's platform just wasn't liked enough for him to win the popular vote and electoral college.  I would be interested to have seen the demographics of those who voted for each candidate but I would suspect that by Romney insulting those living below the poverty level and the lower middle class that he lost a lot of their votes and those of minorities and by pretty much saying (through Ryan in the VP debate) that he would impose a litmus test on judicial nominees on whether they support overturning Roe v. Wade I would imagine he lost a lot of women's votes and those of the pro-choice crowd (though I would think that the pro-choicers generally vote Democrat).  This is just my opinion of course, but it seems that the Democrats have evolved to stay with the times while the Republicans haven't to speak of and they can't expect to win the White House again until they do.

A man in Chicago calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Dallas and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this,"

She calls Chicago immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."

While BB traditionally starts after the 4th of July we’ll instead be treated to an extended season when Big Brother 15 premieres on Wednesday, June 26th at 9PM ET. Awesome! So while CBS says “Big Brother will have a longer edition this summer, premiering two weeks earlier” we may or may not get an extra two weeks on the end. That schedule could depend on how many Hantz HouseGuests meltdown and quit. Ziiinnngg!
 
Here’s some other surprising news. The BB15 schedule has also shifted to airing on different nights. For the 2013 summer season we’ll be watching Big Brother on Sundays (8PM ET), Tuesdays (9PM ET), and Wednesdays. At first I thought we were back to the old faithful (and my preference) Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, but nope.
 
The season premiere will once again be pre-recorded and air on Wednesday (6/26) then we’ll get a Sunday and Tuesday episode before the first live eviction on July 3rd. Then, just to confuse us, on July 17th the Wednesday episodes of Big Brother will move up to 8PM ET for the rest of the longer (and presumably awesome) season.

It is the same thing with Survivor.  They are doing another Fans v.

I agree they should stop bringing back former players. They weren't that good in their seasons and in some cases made dumb, head scratching moves that no one could wait for them to be gone.

exactly! just more of the usual suspects -  Mr. Pink aka phillip the fed; lying, crying lil' hantz as Mr. Orange; and Mr. ultra White played by the scheming cochstain...

if CBS insists on bringing back people for a do over it should always be players that got voted out in the first week. I mean for survivor there are 25 week one losers that I never got to know...

And since it's off-season, you guys came in just behind the porn sites ;D

Of course you were missed. Sorry to hear about the laptop but sometimes letting go of the wheezing old things has to be done.

As for Dani, it didn't surprise me one bit. She and Dominic are perfectly suited for each other and being BB alumni they had to one up Brenchel.

The news that surprised me most is Janelle being pregnant again. This will be her third baby.

I love the one-upping of Brenchel. It was just that Dani always came across to me as more mature/worldly than Dominic. In any case, I'd much rather watch their sex tape than Brenchel's... ;D

I hear you loud and clear on that. Brenchel is aclown car train wreck that AG will probably trot out if things get boring. With Dani, she was more mature in Season 8 than in Season 13. We saw the childish mean streak she has when she turned on the vets almost immediatley. In hindsight, I think most of that was to impress Dominic considering they flirted so much with each other until he got the boot and began dating as soon as the show was over.

Oh sniff, take me with you. It's snowing in Ohio and cold.

Well let's see, I really haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary except working and then relaxing on weekends. Over Thanksgiving we hung out with the grandkids who let us know what they want for Christmas. I think sometime after the first of the year we'll head to Buffalo where another daughter lives and see her and our son-in-law for a week.

Happy Easter!

Spring has finally sprung here for the most part. All I ask is for warmth and sunny skies for everyone. This past Winter was brutal for me in more than just weather and I apologize for not being around much to keep conversation flowing. Our son-in-law who was just 42 lost his 5 year battle with AML two weeks ago which meant travelling from Ohio seven hours to New York and seven hours back quite a bit since December to be with our daughter as we couldn't let her do this alone.

We know our daughter can begin the long process of healing her heart and coping with her loss and grieving for her husband of almost 8 years will take time. What gets to me is that she is a young widow of 38 with her whole life ahead of her beyond this sadness. In time she will mend and move forward but for now her pain is very raw and very real.

I know I didn't need to mention this but I felt the need to share today and know all of you understand.

Ha ha bann3d!

Sunday for me was spent doing laundry.

Lately I've been watching BB Australia and I have to say they sure know how to do BB in a big way and best of all....NO RIDICULOUS THEME rooms! This year they doing power couples which is a variation on what our couples season 9 was like. There is no HoH room, the HoH sleeps in the regular bedrooms with everyone else. The house is tastefully decorated with a separate kitchen, livingroom and laundry room. The bedrooms look like normal bedrooms, the bathroom is communal with the shower area in the middle of the room separated with a divider for a tiny bit of privacy. They have a sauna that is soundproof for strategy talking as well as a power room with a table and chairs to talk one on one without interruption.

The DR is located up a curved stairway and you can watch clips of their DR sessions. The DR door doesn't appear to be locked as I've seen housemates go in anytime they want. Oh and more than one person can go in at a time. The BB voice is a nondescript male voice without humor.

I almost forgot, there is a locked luxury suite attached with its own jacuzzi and small pool in a small court yard, with a bedroom/living area where they can watch movies, play board games and relax. I still have a lot of episodes left to watch before I get caught up but the 2nd HoH power couple had use of it for one night.

The back yard is very small but they have a pool, free standing jacuzzi and weight bench area. It reminds me of a well kept park atmosphere.

Title: Re: BB Water Cooler
Post by: Cheri on October 10, 2014, 01:45:52 AM
Good spinelli, we can at least talk about what 's going on there. I do like how they pick the HoH too. Nothing like simple and no fuss. I'm still behind in catching up since I can only do it after I get home from work at night. I usually watch 2 episodes a night but I skipped last night due an early appointment today. I wish they had live feeds so we could have it on anytime but I guess it's easy enough to be patient and wait for the daily video to be uploaded.

Bann3d you'd enjoy BBAUS just for the sake of seeing a pure BB game being played. There's no secretive DR b.s. but the Big Brother does make his presence known often. It reminds me of how our BB used ot be played in the beginning before AG got hold of it and made it cheesy.

Now if only I could find a way to watch BBCAN when it starts again this year. The live feeds are blocked for U.S. viewers but I read somewhere there is a way someone in the states can see them. I haven't figured that out yet.

I'm two episodes away from being caught up to what's currently happening.

I won't give away any spoilers with respect to terabyte and bann3d but I will admit one eviction blindsided me as it was very unexpected.

I'm now caught up or as caught up as I can be waiting for episode 30 to be uploaded. Can't wait to see how the housemates react to the Sleeping Beauty intruder.

I hate having to wait 3 whole days to get my BBAUS fix! The schedule for their channel 9 is that they don't air the daily show Fri, Sat or Sun. GRRRR!

In reading the comments below the video episodes I'm getting the idea ratings for BBAU are poor. Apparently channel 9 is preempting BB to show old movies for some odd reason. I remember a few years ago it was cancelled and then picked up by the current channel and up to this season they had live feeds but decided not to offer them this year.

I do wish they had the feeds so we could get to know the house mates a little better. For what it's worth I like Travis and Aisha a lot and it would be nice if those two make it to the end. I like Leo too but wish he didn't like Skye as much as he does. I don't care for Priya because she's too serious and always reminding everyone it's just a game for the money. Well, that is the point of BB, to be popular and win money, right?

The thing I find odd about how BB is played there is BB offers cash during the power plays and that money is taken away from the prize money. If our BB did that no one would want to go into the house.

Hi spinelli!

Personally, I have had enough with former HG relatives and returnees. That's just me though. Other fans eat that up so as to have someone to talk about when stuff happens in the house.

To me it's tiring having the same predictability season after season.
