Reader Pressure

“Hey, Spence,” says Admin, talking on the phone. “Here’s a random Amazon review of The Dog Who Knew Too Much: ‘Although for everyone, these stories are that much more enjoyable for anyone who has enjoyed that special bond with a pet..He cannot write these books fast enough .. I cannot wait for the next one. Spencer, please hurry…’ So get the message? You best hurry back from Chicago and sit down at that keyboard. I could lay in a supply of Red Bull.”

“Thanks for the call.”

Welcome Bud and Bandit.

    I’ll send an additional supply of Red Bull.

    Good morning all.

    You mean someone gives Spencer more pressure to finish another novel than the Plunderers?


    So NOAH is showing this for OTAS and GLAD’s forecast.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Perhaps that reviewer is one of us.
    Stay away from Red Bull, Spence. You don’t need it.

  4. OleyHowlers
    10:50 am on October 26th, 2012

    Good morning! We say YES to Red Bull. And the next book. So, now we know. Spencer doesn’t listen to us Plunderers on this here blog. We need to apply the pressure vis a vis Amazon! (no idea if we spelled that one correctly).

    Happy G&BB’s Dad’s first day back home !!!

    Here’s the latest computer modeling. Just heard a report by a meterologist in our area. At this point it sounds like YSAS, OTAS and GLAD, OleyHowlers, Terry and Rose are going to be in the direct path. NOAH is sending up twice as many weather balloons each day to make sure they have very updated reports for their computers.

    At this point Wöökie, Audrey and Pearl and The Pack are going to get drenched.

    Be interesting to see what happens in the next few days. . That’s interesting in the sense of the Chinese curse.

    Fellow Sibers? The storm is heading right for you, isn’t it?

    Wookie? Same question.

  7. OleyHowlers
    10:59 am on October 26th, 2012

    Read this link. These guys have been the first to call this storm early this week, and so far the most accurate. The other models and weather prognosticators seem to catch up to these guys slowly. According to this site, we Howlers will be taking an almost direct hit. Altho we are not on the coast, they say that won’t matter for this storm. They also say that where the direct hit is doesn’t really matter because of how big this storm will become.

  8. Siber-H
    10:59 am on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie answered my question.

    There are too many of us in the direct path of the storm. Before the blog, we didn’t have any friends to worry about in the Northeast.

  9. OleyHowlers
    11:00 am on October 26th, 2012

    Our Pop will likely have to be at his work place for this entire storm, and we will be riding it out with Mom. Hope she has plenty of treats on hand.
    Did youse guys see new FOCs Bud and Bandit? Are those guys cute or what?

  10. Siber-H
    11:01 am on October 26th, 2012

    Oh boy, the Howlers also answered my question. Keep us posted.

  11. Masquers
    11:07 am on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie: Sandy sounds like such a innocent name, not at all like the ferocious storm expected to travel up the East Coast. We are very worried for our friends who live in its path.

  12. Rose
    11:07 am on October 26th, 2012

    The Prof and I will be ready for any weather that comes our way. Our biggest fear is the power going out…no heat, no lights, no frig, no hot water, no TV. Better play it safe and charge my nook, IPod and IPaw tonight.

    Stay safe youse guys!

  13. Rose
    11:08 am on October 26th, 2012

    OHs: I really like that Bandit. Perfect face for the name.

  14. Wookie 0f Chevy Chase
    11:11 am on October 26th, 2012

    Mom is getting ready to book those rooms at LaQuinta again, just in case. The weather people down here are hyperventilating about the possibilities, although our sense is that we will get a lot of rain, but not the main brunt of the storm; that unfortunately may be heading to my Siber buddies up north. If we do go to the LaQuinta, anyone who wants to blur in is welcome.

    Isn’t this the cutest FOC. Do you think she is real? Almost looks like a beanie baby.

  16. Staff
    11:17 am on October 26th, 2012

    well rats.

  17. Siber-H
    11:30 am on October 26th, 2012

    Rose? If your power goes out, would you still have water? I’m only asking because after around 30 hours with no power here, we wouldn’t have water.

    Smart planning, Wookie.

  18. OleyHowlers
    11:31 am on October 26th, 2012

    That FOC is strange-looking, Staff. 🙂

    Rose, Sandy is not arriving in force until Monday pm.

    There was another storm in the Atlantic named Tony. Don’t youse guys think that Sandy and Tony sound like innocent beach romance type names?

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:56 am on October 26th, 2012

    The Weather! It’s on our minds today and will be in the days to come. Hard to imagine this storm will be worse than Irene of last year, but if the computer models are accurate (and we hope they are not) it will be wreaking havoc over a wide area.
    Wookie: Your folks are on top of things, as usual. We foresee more than a few potential blurr-ins, but are concerned with any kind of travel during that time.

    Melanie: In POI: Did YSAS tell you which gunfight scene he was in? We counted at least three and they happened so fast it was hard to tell which Irish mobster he portrayed.

    The new Friends of Chet are so cute! Bandit looks like a cuddly toy.

  20. Barb & Maggie
    11:56 am on October 26th, 2012

    They sound like characters from Grease, don’t they?

    Supposedly the European model of the storm is more accurate and they are predicting a stronger hit to the mid section of the coast, rather than farther north. At least I think that is right. It may be a monster where ever it hits.

    Jacques Barzun died at the age of 104 (from today’s NYTimes). When he was 92 he published From Dawn to Decadence–1500 to the Present. That is an excellent work and I used it often as a reference when I was teaching our World Masterpieces courses. Oh…and he loved baseball and mystery novels. Here’s a quotation from his essay, “On Baseball”:

    “The wonderful purging of the passions that we all experienced in the fall of ’51, the despair groaned out over the fate of the Dodgers, from whom the league pennant was snatched at the last minute, give us some idea of what Greek tragedy was like.”

  22. Rose
    12:14 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Siber-H: Since the Prof and I live in an apartment building, I think we would still have water…it would just be really, really cold. brrrrr.

  23. B.Stover
    12:18 pm on October 26th, 2012

    I can’t find Person of Interest on On Demand.

    On his Facebook page YSAS has a close-up photo from Elementary when Sherlock is first examining the “Featured Body.” Cool!

    Howlers: vis-a-vis with an accent mark over the a.

  24. Siber-H
    12:18 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Stover, That is a good way to teach some of us. I understand Greek tragedy better now. I thinking of the Texas Rangers in the World Series last year. I’m sure Macy will agree with me.

  25. Princess Sam
    12:19 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie’s chart shows the tail end of the storm landing here in Buffalo. Our boaters had better pay attention and get their boats out of the water.

  26. Melanie
    12:25 pm on October 26th, 2012

    BearSpiritDog, YSAS is 51 minutes into the episode. He is at the door of the “Pearl” and then runs in when the shooting stars. Runs behind something and then is shot. It is quick! Oh, he’s wearing an Irish hat.

  27. OleyHowlers
    12:33 pm on October 26th, 2012

    What is an Irish hat?

  28. Melanie
    12:41 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Here . .

  29. Siber-H
    12:46 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Rose, since I love you, I am going to say this…but where does your apartment building get its water?

    The apartment buildings here would run out of water at the same time the houses do.

    If electricity is used anywhere in the system to bring water to you, some of you guys could be without water sooner or later. I can only speak for our water company. They have no backup plans.

    Your local media will inform people about whatever they need to stock up on…like water, flashlights, batteries, food, and blankets.

  30. OleyHowlers
    12:50 pm on October 26th, 2012

    We here are stocking up on beer, wine, cheese, and frosty paws.

  31. Staff
    1:04 pm on October 26th, 2012

    This article has some useful information and some really good links to emergency supplies that you should read. This storm also coincides with the full moon so they are expecting the storm surge to be quite severe.

    Good luck to all you easteners.

  32. Staff
    1:05 pm on October 26th, 2012

    I have to admit I am becoming quite nervous for our blog friends.

  33. Rose
    1:13 pm on October 26th, 2012

    SIber-H: Our water comes from the Croton Reservoir system, which, if I am not mistaken, serves NYC as well.
    Our apartment building uses electricity to heat the water, so if that goes out, I guess the Prof and I will be a little dirty and smelly for a few days……

  34. Melanie
    1:14 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Water . . We don’t have a well. Our small town has a well. The water is then pumped up hill to an underground reservoir. We then get the water in our houses by gravity.

    Hopefully, the drought hasn’t lowered the reservoir too much.

    We do have the generator. It is hooked into the wiring of the house. We do not lose the kitchen appliances, the furnaces, some lights and, of course, the computer.

    If need be for gray water we can use the river. There is always a bucket tied to a rope and pulled up. And yes, we’ve had to do that one year.

  35. Melanie
    1:19 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Cool site, Staff.

    One of the things we got this year is a crank radio. It’s wonderful. It can be charged by the solar cell on top of it or using a crank. It has the weather band, AM and FM. It’s a flashlight. You can attach your cell phone to it and crank away to give it life.

    AND it’s red!

  36. BearSpiritDog
    1:30 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Thanks for the tip, Melanie. I will watch it again to see if he can be spotted this time. It is only the second time we have watched this show. A scary concept if you think about it, although we suppose this type of thing has been going on for at least the last forty years.
    The Emergency radio does come in handy. We have one here also, although I believe ours requires another attachment for the cell phone. It’s a mote point however. If the power goes out so does the cell tower and with it our cellular reception.

    O.Howlers: We like your Emergency Essentials list. lol.

  37. dawson
    1:33 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Spencer: No to the Red Bull, yes to another book asap.

    Melanie: I found YSAS! He is with another actor at the front door of the Emerald Pearl wearing his Irish hat, he is on the left, then a minute or so later when the shooting starts inside he is the last one shot before the words,”Go! Take care of Annie!” The shot twirls him around and he is down. Whooo Hoooo, Great job YSAS!

    Hope that Gus&BooBear’s dad had a restful night.

    Stay safe all those in line with Sandy. Our weather here is boring, grey skies and snow for a week now.

  38. OleyHowlers
    1:57 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Thanks for the link, Staff. We here printed off a checklist that weather site issued last night. Some things we would not have thought of include having all vehicles filled with fuel. And having cash on hand. Because in case of widespread power outage, neither atm’s or gas pumps would be working.

  39. Terry Ballard
    2:02 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Love the hurricane map. As it stands, Sandy will pass through my back yard on Long Island. Making sure that all of my insurance coverage is up to snuff.

  40. Melanie
    2:06 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Good Idea, Terry,

    Dawson, YSAS will be calling me in a few minutes (he’s waiting for a train). And I’ll tell him what youse guys said!

  41. Melanie
    2:16 pm on October 26th, 2012

    The news has been talking about the Hurricane in 1938 that came through New England. Here’s a link . . /

  43. dawson
    2:49 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie: You can tell him he looked real handsome standing at the door of the The Emerald Pearl and it was a shame he had to get shot. WhoooHoooo! Go YSAS!

    Dawson, that picture I put up was from his photo shoot. I was showing OH what an Irish hat looks like. (sorry B) The OH’s parental units are for the Fighting Irish! Maybe they should get hats.

  47. Rose
    2:54 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Callie: I hope you and Gramp are doing well.

  48. Rose

    The Prof has several of those Irish hats (being part Irish, I guess it’s natural for him to own them).

  49. Melanie
    3:02 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Riö, I thought it was going to be on Amazon Instant Video. They have Season 1 but not season 2. Guess Zoë will have to wait. .

  51. OleyHowlers
    3:09 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Thanks for the picture of YSAS in his Irish hat, Melanie. Our great-uncle (Mom’s uncle) always wore one of those. Our Pop wears an Irish hat but it is completely different. He had it on in that photo we posted from our Fall Hike last Sunday.

    Bee, what is this about you posting about baseball on Barzun??? What is Barzun? And does this mean one of us must bake you a pie?

    Here is our latest Frankenstorm link:

    This one compares Irene to Sandy. This site says Sandy will be Irene x 100.

  52. Staff
    3:22 pm on October 26th, 2012

    A friend of mine in North Dakota has a daughter living in the gulf area of Texas. She got caught in a last minute hurricane evacuation and sat in a long line on an interstate for hours. A lot of people in that line ran out of gas. Those that got to a gas station would find the station was out of gas also. They finally found some gas by using their motorcycle to zip around the lines and pickup gas that way. And you had to have cash. No ATM’s were working either. I think it was Katrina but I don’t really remember.
    Remember how many of the banks were closed/flooded in New Orleans and people could not access their bank accounts no matter how much money they had. Just think if all the people in the Northeast try to get somewhere and no credit cards work. SHeesh.

    3:54 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie: is that why AJ has complained if being cold at night? Out mattress, like our pockets are empty. Maybe if I put the quarters left over from laundry under our pillows we will sleep warmer.

  58. Melanie
    4:02 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Quarters hold heat. I find that dimes are better though. They are smaller and more comfortable.

    Paper bills? They seem to hold the eau de Pack much longer than the coins.

    A nod to Professor B from Chet (Admin) Kool.

  60. Melanie
    4:12 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Masquers The Weather Kat, have you found anything about possible amounts of rain from this storm?

  61. Staff
    4:12 pm on October 26th, 2012

    It was Hurricane Rita, and it was evacuating Houston. I googled it.

  62. Masquers
    4:18 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Howlers: Believe Chet was referring to B’s earlier Jacques Barzun quote about baseball. We definitely owe her a pie. This is big.

  63. B.Stover
    4:31 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Howlers: Barzun was an author and prof at Columbia University. I wrote about him in my post of 12:09 today.

  64. Masquers
    4:50 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie: What about the river near your home? (Remembering last year when it flooded)
    At the present time many experts are advising to prepare for evacuation now if you live in coastal vicinities. Waiting for the official word before taking action could put one in the type of scenario as described by Staff. The full moon on the 29th will cause the tides to be higher than normal increasing the coastal flooding. The New Jersey and NYC areas can expect 5 inches of rain accompanied by gale force winds beginning on Sunday and possibly extending into Wednesday. Some parts of Ohio and PA are expected to get snow.
    Let us all pray the “experts” are wrong – WeatherKat

  65. Melanie
    5:30 pm on October 26th, 2012

    The river is very low. We don’t have to worry about the full moon. That’s why I was asking about the predicted rainfall. Irene dumped about 9 to 10 inches in a short amount of time. This sounds like not as much rain and over a longer period. I know I saw something about the predicted rainfall but I can’t find it now.

    YSAS is at OTAS and GLAD’s. New Jersey is going a bit mad.

  66. Siber-H
    5:35 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Melanie, Will YSAS stay at their house until the storm has passed?

    This afternoon we went back to the dog run at Eisenhower Park – taking advantage of the weekday insteady of weekend crowding. Afer about 45 minutes, Donna told me “Look at what’s coming through the gate. He looks just like…….;”

  68. OleyHowlers
    5:40 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Aahhh yes the Greek Tragedies quote.

    We read much more rain than that , Masquers. We need to go back to the links we posted now.

  69. OleyHowlers
    5:44 pm on October 26th, 2012

    6-12 inches of rain is what we are seeing.

  70. Tupper and Gilly
    5:51 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Quick hello to all. We have been ever so busy around here, but we have been reading posts inbetween.
    Inbetween taking Gramp here and there, that is. Been doing a lot of sitting around in parking lots, waiting for his to do “quick errands”. Those of you who met our Gramp understand that if he gets talking to someone, there ain’t gonna be nuthin’ quick about it.
    We have enough stuff to get through the storm, if need be. Only thing we don’t’ have is sterno, but there’s charcoal for the grill, so we’re good.
    And Mama found something new on the market, and splurged on it – Fleece Sheets! How cool is that? Oh – wait, guess we should say: How WARM is that? So even if we lose power and heat, we can snuggle up in the big bed them, some books, some battery lanterns, and their supply of emergency rations – glazed donuts.

  71. OleyHowlers
    6:09 pm on October 26th, 2012

    T&G, your folks are our kind of folks. Donuts: the original emergency staple.

    6:31 pm on October 26th, 2012

    Might I suggest an emergency cheesecake for youse on the east coast?

    Gramps! He is a great guy. I didn’t noticed he never met a long conversation he didn’t like. I thought I was talking his ear off during my visit.

    How did Callie take it when she realized she was both lamp stand and bulb for her new dangled lampshade?

  74. Masquers
    6:55 pm on October 26th, 2012

    8:09 pm on October 26th, 2012

    I’m going to bed. That is such a wonderful thing to say. And I’m going to do it. Right after . . I turn off the heat, shut the house up, finish the dishes, start the dishwasher, give Patsy her pills, give everyone else who is in the kitchen at the time a spoonful of dog food, gather my clean clothes, take it upstairs, let Patsy in the room, tell everyone else they can’t come in, get the bed ready, get myself ready, move Patsy over, read a bit and go to sleep.

Lots of big vehicles twirling and spinning around in a circle cuz they were going to fast…grunt!…She said she drove 40 mph and wished she was going 30 mph but if you go to slow you become part of the problem…wheeze!

    We like Ray Romano too. Wonder if he will become more of a love interest.

    We are saying good night now. Sweet dreams all. Watching Blue Bloods and then off to bed.

    We are in good shape for big storms…..a gas stove, a woodburning stove, lots of wood, lots of cans of food, chocolate, and a 2200 gallon water tank that feeds the house via gravity flow. Come one, come all!

    We live in central California and have never an earthquake in known history. And even if one hits, our house is built on a ridge of solid granite. What we worry about is wildfires.
