I like to watch Bernie shave. All that lather on his face: that used to get me going but now I’ve got it under control, pretty much. Sometimes when Bernie’s shaving he gets this look in his eye and says things that are not so easy to understand. Like today:

“Know something, Chet? If I ever start that microbrewing company, I’ll call the beer Nagila. That way the jingle’s already done, just waiting for the product.” Huh? Not the microbrewing idea again? Then he starts singing, “Have a Nagila, have a Nagila.”

I don’t get it, but didn’t he look into the start-up costs and say it was too risky? Our finances!

    This is Melanie, setting the iPad for Dan’s use of the blog. The Mac doc is coming today to teach Dan and Zoë how to use it.

    Lets have Melanie (when she returns ML) or Macy or Kirby or C Harris do a jingle for us. Key word Nagila.

    God morning everyone. Very very cold in midwest today.

    Morning all, glad everybody got out of town ok, there is another winter storm coming tonight.

    Did someone leave some large size fuzzy slippers behind? They are in lost and found, just let me know. Also, I have some left over Steelers swag, as if anyone wants it let me know. Heehee, the Pittsburg Plastics now!

    No jingles coming to mind right now, but we would like to Hava Nagila please.

    Very funny…Now I’m going to be singing Have a Nagila all day.

    Snow!…And blowing snow and ice and coldness….cough!….That’s what it’s like at our place….sniff!….Someone got up looked outside and say, ‘No way’….snorkel!….So she is home with me today. Which is good because she doesn’t feel all that tip top, so staying home is a good thing!….heh!

    Mollie!….Timothy Olyphant is going to be on The View today….snort!…I don’t like that show, but since she is home today we will be watching those strange ladies interview him….grunt!

    Melanie is at the PT and then the doctors down the hill. I just got back from having a stitch removed.

    It’s minus eight wind chill here but the sun is shining brightly.

    I don’t get the Nagila thing. Please explain. (It seems to me that a microbrewing company would be much better than tin shares or betting on sports events. I don’t think Bernie would like the work however. I know Chet would not.)

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:16 pm on February 8th, 2011

    View!… OMG! This is insanity. Five women talking over each other all at once…wheeze!… I feel so sorry for Timothy Olyphant. They better be nice to him. ….growl!

    We don’t get the Nagila jingle either.

  16. OleyHowlers
    12:32 pm on February 8th, 2011

    We don’t get the Nagila jingle either.

    But we know about beer. Thats that good stuff we get whenever they play the N.D. Fight Song if we our high-five well.

  17. Siber-H
    1:24 pm on February 8th, 2011

    We can’t believe this, but we get the Nagila thing. It is funny and like Mollie (ABP) said, we are going to be singing it all day. My dad will like that joke.
    To get rid of the Nagila song, we might have to get back in the truck where we are listening to Johnny Horton and his songs about Alaska in honor of the sled dog races.

    Rio, I’m glad your friend stayed home from work today. I hoping for at least one little snowflake from this storm.

  18. Siber-H
    1:29 pm on February 8th, 2011

    I don’t know how to explain the Nagila thing except to say it is probably the most famous Jewish song in the world.

    “Have a Nigila, Have a Nigila.” Does this help?

    It is really a neat song. Mom has heard it at Jewish weddings.

  19. B.Stover
    1:35 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Here’s the Wikipedia article on Hava Nagila. I don’t know the tune. I’ll have to ask one of my friends.

    Mom and Dad went go a microbrewery tour last year when they were visiting Little Rock. Dad was all ready go get a home brewery kit and make beer. Mom said “no way, no how!”. He already has several expensive hobbies!

    B, we told Dad you wanted to see pictures of the 56 Chevy. He’s all in a tizzy to get really good pictures to post. Hopefully, we will get to post some during this calendar year ! LOL

  22. Siber-H
    1:38 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Maybe someone that knows how to find this stuff better than I do, could look up the song on youtube. The problem is, I don’t know how the song is really spelled.

    Day 6 in NM…thousands are still without heat and we just found out this morning that southern Arizona is also affected. Chet will be fine, but we might need to worry about Bernie.

  23. Mollypop
    1:43 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Siber-H – That’s too bad that your Mom found the iPad. I would have thought putting under your mountain of toys would be perfect.

    To make you feel better, here are some of the first photos from the Trapper’s Special Race last weekend:

  24. B.Stover
    1:48 pm on February 8th, 2011

    I think I do know the tune. Must be from a movie and people dance in a line to it possibly holding up a glass of ale. And now I can’t get it out of my mind.

  25. Siber-H
    1:55 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Wow! Thanks Mollypop, I see some Siberian teams in those photos. I love this time of year, and after the sled dog season is over with, Baseball will begin!

    Stover, that seems to be a problem with that song, but at least you figured out how to spell it.

  26. OleyHowlers
    1:56 pm on February 8th, 2011

    We now know the tune !!! Thanks … now we got it in our heads also, and we are howling it.

  27. Mollie (a black poodle)
    2:02 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Rio: Thank you.. Thank you. I don’t usually watch The View, but I rushed to turn it on and I was just in time to see “Timothy”.
    He looked pretty good without his hat!!!

  29. Gus and BooBear
    2:15 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Thanks, Wookie. Like everyone else we now have that tune in our heads. That was a good link and , of course, we recognize the song. I think it was in the movie Striptease with Demi Moore and Burt Reynolds. He was a congressman and went to a Jewish party and was dancing with the ladies in a big circle to that song. If it wasn’t that song, whatever song it was was very similar.

    OleyHowlers, you are NotreDame fans or is just for the beer?

  30. Gus and BooBear
    2:33 pm on February 8th, 2011

    And SiberH, sorry New Mexico is still in bad weather hell. There’s another storm coming through too. Hope you and your Mom and Dad are okay for the duration.

    2:34 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Naw!… I am not going to watch that video and listen to that annoying song….snort!… I don’t want that thing between my ears all day long….sniff!

    Olyphant!…Glad you got to see him Mollie. Too bad they wasted all the interview time on the guy in front of him…sniff!…Timothy’s airtime was way too short. My friend thinks he is one hot guy but we both think that show The View sucks big time!…grump!

  32. B.Stover
    2:35 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Thanks Wookie. That’s the song I had in mind. Wish I could remember what movie I saw that had it.

  33. Siber-H
    2:36 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Thanks Wookie…we are laughing because it is really stuck in our heads now. I’d like to hear Mishka sing along with that video.

    We are suppose to get some snow here…sure, and I’m Lassie.

    3:06 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Lassie, Is Timmy in the well again?

    3:11 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Drat! We watched the Youtube number, and now the song is in our heads, too!

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:23 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Inside!… I am watching a Clint Eastwood movie and my friend is gluing paper…snort!… What a nice day I’m having. I haven’t even been outside since this morning – I bet I can hold it all afternoon and evening too…wheeze!…When she’s home I usually have to go out more often just because she says so. I don’t want to go out in the snow today no matter what she says…sniff!

  37. Macy the Min-Pin
    4:27 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Mr. Husky! Lassie is a lady dog! Is there something you want to tell us?

    Mom is bored, and lonely, and bored, and bored some more, and aggravated at life in general, and bored, and depressed, and did I already say bored? We better get off of here before her bad humor spreads.

  38. B.Stover
    4:32 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Bored!…. How can anyone be bored? There’s a bazillion books out there to read for Pete’s Sake!….grunt!….Take up a hobby, come clean our house, make a new recipe, do charity work, I could go on and on….wheeze!

    Years ago Laugh-In did a spoof of Hava Nagila, the lyrics were “Hava Nagila, Have Two Nagila, Have three Nagila, they’re pretty small”. It’s very funny when sung to the tune.

    Rio, did you see Die Hard 4? Olyphant was in that, looking divine.

    5:25 pm on February 8th, 2011

    We just order # 1 and 2 of the Jaine Austen series by Levine. Our library didn’t have them, so ordered on library loan. Guesing it is better to read in sequence? They sound pretty funny.

    Finishing up Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Didn’t learn much about the Japanese evacuation camps in school, so it is both informative and upsetting. But the book is definitely worthwile reading. Have a friend here who wants to borrow it, after that are any of you interested? Barb can mail it.

  42. B.Stover
    5:42 pm on February 8th, 2011

    I read the first Levine novel–This Pen for Hire. It was funny. I guessed who the murderer was.

    Will read all later. Am home.
    After walking through the slush, ice and streets doing appointments and errands PT Ted said, “You really shouldn’t walk outside now.”


    So guess what happens after having to use a cane for 6 months and then have surgery? Your thigh muscle goes away as do your hamstrings. I have these very easy simple exercises to do to start strengthening those.

    PT Ted said “Just flex the thigh muscle. . .”
    “I am.” says I. Snicker.

    Hi Melanie and Dawson.

    6:17 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Re: The Hotel B & W that we got from Staff. Partially takes place in Seattle,Wa. in 1942, and the camps we referred to are U.S. camps where the American-Japanese were “relocated”.

    A friend email me that I should be on a blog called “Coffee with a Canine.” It’s at
    People write about their mornings with their dogs. Some are “real” writers. On the left side there is a linked index to types of dogs. Some of our own favorite writers/dogs should give it a go.

    Still not working full days; still trying to get my strength/appetite back.

  55. B.Stover
    6:25 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Mollypop: Now I don’t know what you mean by Stella.

    CHarris: Did you go to a doctor?

    7:11 pm on February 8th, 2011

    STELLA! Great scene, Brando was good.

    When I finally remembered the song (just before I read Wöökie’s comment) I just had to laugh at Bernie. That is wonderful. Suds. snicker.

    B.Stover: Glad you got that stitch out. Does this mean you can run now?

    Dawson: Do we count our 6:10 postings as a triple or a double?

    Macy: Have your mom think of everything that Riö said, and then think “What would Riö do?” Snicker.

    Barb & MagPie: Please send the book this way when you can. I’ve done some research on the camps. Met a woman whose family taught at one of them and she had a yearbook from that period. I also watched a documentary (the name escapes me) on the camps and some of the people in them.

    7:23 pm on February 8th, 2011

    That’s a good song. I’m not sure what it has to do with micro-breweries, but I do have a thought. Here on Long Island there’s a vineyard and winery that’s also a horse rescue farm. Don’t you think a micro-brewery/dog rescue would be a great combo?

  63. Mollypop
    7:24 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Rio – Why did you post “ADRIAN!” I couldn’t be more confused.

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Rocky!…. Running hard nowwwwww. Trying hard nowwwww! ….snort!… Wow! There is some really good music in this movie! Who’d a thought? Why didn’t anyone ever tell me about this?… wooooo!…. Getting Strong nowwwwww! Flying high nowwwwww! …woooo!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:35 pm on February 8th, 2011

    All the Adrian, Stella stuff made perfect sense. Two guys yelling 2 woman’s names at the top of their lungs. Rio yelled Adrian ’cause he watched Rocky today. That segwayed into Stella. See, Molly.

    Melanie – you got it, will mail Hotel at B & S to you. Think you will enjoy it. The main character is a Chinese boy growing up in those times, so there is a lot of interesting cultural background.

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug

    8:03 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Dang!…. He didn’t win. The Champ wonnit…grump!…I thought Rocky had a real chance there….snort!….Hey! There’s a Rocky 2!!…woooo!… How come I’m just now seeing all this good boxing stuff? She’s over in the kitchen trying to make low-salt spaghetti and I don’t think she knows what she is doing…heh! ….Go Rocky!…Wooooo!

  72. Mollie (a black poodle)
    8:17 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Did you see Million Dollar Baby? that was terrific.

  74. Melanie
    8:29 pm on February 8th, 2011

    I have never been fond of boxing, real or movies. I did watch “Rocky”, but after that I just don’t want to see some guy hammer another guy. All that slow motion and blood. Yuck. . .

    B.Stover: I dreamed I ran the other day. I didn’t get tired. It was wonderful though I really like my flying dreams the best.

    8:46 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Now mom is bummed because earlier today she thought up the have a nagila, have 2 nagila….only she thought that she made it up…all of your suggestions are great, except when you are depressed nothing holds any interest at all, not even puppies..or blogs…

  77. Melanie
    9:01 pm on February 8th, 2011

    B.Stover: My left knee is 4 inches larger than the right. Hmmm. More ice and less walking. I have taken a pill for pain so hopefully will sleep alright.

    Hmmm. Pondering here . . . is alright correct or should it be all right. . .

    Macy’ mom: Sorry about the being depressed. Sometimes you just have to go through it. It sucks lemons. I do pretty well during the year, but in March I have a three day depression. Not sure why, happens every year. I just know that I’ll get through it. I do try to either read or watch something that makes me laugh and eat comfort food.

    Hmm. Comfort food. . . That reminds me, for Valentine’s Day I’m picking up a cherry cake from my gluten free baker. Yummmm.

  78. B.Stover
    9:07 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Macy: Perhaps you should see a doctor.

  79. B.Stover
    9:09 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Melanie: It should be all right. People confuse it with already.
    Hope the pain goes away.

    9:12 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Depressed!…She’s gone from bored to depressed? That’s a huge leap missy Min Pin…snort!… I here along with my friend have had may setbacks and huge heartbreaks over the past year or so…sniff!… We’ve learned the hard way that life goes on and if you drop out it is all the harder to get back in. She needs to find things going on in your community that she is interested in and would like to be part of. Meeting and greeting new people is a very good way for your gal to find a new job. It really is!…gruff!… Plus doing something she enjoys will pull her out of that black cold place. …sneeze!… Its not easy, we here are fighting off the black cloak that wants to cover us from losing our beloved, our truly beloved Grandma every day…sniff!…It is a constant battle. We find comfort in books, movies, she likes that quilling thing, I love the blog and all my Quacky friends…snort!…We also have to stay up in spirits for her mother’s sake who is suffering worse than we are these days…sniff!…Oh, its easy to say things will get better, but it is the minute to minute to minute stuff that is hard. I think Dawson is right, become more physical, as you are walking or doing other exercise your brain starts thinking about other things. Ideas will come to you! Really, it is within her to pull herself out of this. Your gal has a husband, and all those other guys surrounding her and pulling for her too. We are pulling for her too! Because we love you Min Pin and we love your gal, do not ever forget that!….gruff!

    I found a decal for Macy, but it’s being moderated, so we might see it tomorrow.

    Anyhoo: Off to bed. 0 degrees tonight and that’s not counting the wind chill factor of the 42 mph winds we’re having. Yikes.

    BTW Riö: Well said.


  83. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:19 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Edit!… I meant ideas will come to her, not you MinPin!…snort!… Although, you might have an idea as she is walking and walking you, but probably not the right idea…heh! ….I need a real Editor….sniff!…Spencer, can I borrow your editor since you are not using yours right now???…heh!

  84. Barb & Maggie
    9:29 pm on February 8th, 2011

    To Macy’s Mom – It’s going to be hard to follow the heartfelt, profound and inspiration words above from Rio. Just want to say that what you are feeling is part of the normal process of grieving. What you went through is like a death or loss. If you lose a loved one, go through a divorce, or lose a job, those are all losses in different degrees, and you will go through a grieving period. I think there are 5 steps: shock and disbelief, anger, sadness, acceptance, and moving on. You are probably in the 2nd or 3rd step now. Try to do the thing everyone is suggesting. You probably do not need anti-depressants. Give yourself some time, and feel each step in the process, knowing that you are going to come out a stronger person.

  85. B.Stover
    9:39 pm on February 8th, 2011

    Macy’s mom, that is very good advice from Rio and Barb. We do love you and care about you. You have our heartfelt support, so talk to us any time you feel like it.

    Gray!….I’ve always hung my hat on the theory that the Presidents hair starts turning gray the minute they find out about what’s really going on in New Mexico with the aliens and all…heh!…When they realize Frank the Pug is truly real and out there to this day…(Reference for Stover: The movie Men in Black….gruffle!

    Editor!…See, I bet I used the word ‘queue’ up above wrong and now I know I am in desperate need of a professional Editor on this blog…grunt! ….Only Stover really knows…sniff!!

    Yeah, Rio, It must be when they become President they learn about the little green men (from crashed spaceships) that the military has hidden away in freezers. That is probably somewhere in NM.

    From Macy’s Mom:

    Thank you for all your kind words. A lot of the problem comes from the fact that I was being weaned off of a med that I can’t afford at the same time as “the event”. Drug reactions + job loss + life long tendency for depression = blah. Getting off the couch is a major under taking.

    I will let Macy do the talking since she is always peppy.

    Rio: Queue is the British term for long line. You mean cue.

    I saw Men in Black but I still don’t get the reference. Sorry.

    Good night all.

    Seriously!….Stover does not remember Frank the Pug as a Remoolian alien in Men In Black?….grunt!… I can help you no further on this one my dear…sniffle!….Frank is my hero!…gruff!

    Sometimes the drug companies will offer free refills for folks. You may find something on their website. I suffer from depression also, and it is like having the flu. It is a physical darkness that shadows the soul. Take care and that we are all pulling for you. Prayer helps also.

    Thank you Mary. It is you, right, and not Wolfie? Wolfie is always so upbeat.

    Goodnight!…. all and take care. I find that baseball keeps my spirits soaring…heh!… If we can just turn the February corner and then March too, all will be so much better…heh!

    Take me out to the ball game,
    Take me out with the crowd;
    Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
    I don’t care if I never get back.
    Let me root, root, root for the home team,
    If they don’t win, it’s a shame.
    For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
    At the old ball game.

    Dear Macy,
    I can’t say it as well as Rio and Barb. We are all rooting for you and hope you can get through this as soon as possible. What Dawson said about walks is true also. It would help if it were not winter, but walking is medicine for depression and it is free.
    good luck and we are here any time you need to talk.

    Even I, Alice M. Johnson, am here for you.

    And if you don’t want to walk then a little yoga helps too.

    Hi Macy’s Mom – yup, we get it. We absolutly understand every single word you say. And nothing any of us can say is going to be a magic bullet. As Melanie says, it does indeed suck.
    The Plunderers are a great support system, a great forum for airing grief, celebrating accomplishments, and asking for information. In our short time as members of this neat little community, we have seen beautiful, emotional and heartfelt prayers, words of encouragement, thoughtful suggestions and really wonderful and terrible puns and jokes.
    We hope you continue to lean on all of us to vent, to cry, to complain, and eventually to work through all of this. Barb and Maggie brought forth a valid point that you are indeed working thru the stages of grief, and the fact that you are actually wading thru those stages is a good sign.
    Depression is a tough thing, and it is a self fulfilling prophesy. As hard as it is, you have to battle to surface from the quagmire of hopelessness and apathy.
    Macy is a wonderful voice for you. She is sassy, self reliant, and aware of her value. When seh felt that she was being ignored on the blog, she said so – she stood up for herself, and look at the respect and interaction that she got.
    Its not easy to do anything or get thoughts organized when depression is burdening your soul. But you can do it. You can set a goal for each day, knowing that you only have to do this thing for just one day. In a little while, you will find that you don’t have to work so hard to do it for a day…it will just happen on its own, it will become part of the new routine.
    We are keeping you in our prayers. We are sending you thoughts of sun and beautiful birds, and adorable doggies and warm socks on a cold night. And chocolate. You can’t be depressed if you have chocolate.
    So keep on blogging. We’re here.

    Dear Barb,
    Here are the two photo’s you emailed to me. They have been made really tiny for whatever reason. The blizzard scene is only 27K and the Newfie is only 5K.

    I don’t know how well they will show up.

    Hope they came through. I usually have 200 – 500K on my photos that I post. At this amount of detail they won’t enlarge well at all.

    Dear T&G.
    So I rank about the Herbs Eh? 😀

    Oh and earlier Owly Howlers mentioned ND and the Fighting Sioux and I know that is not Notre Dame. The Sioux fight in Grand Forks North Dakota. (At least for a little while longer.) I am from North Dakota too Mr. Howlers. About 65 miles from GF. South and a little west near Mayville. Are you still in ND?

    Nighty, nite all. Big wet kisses to you all. I will keep on top of Mom tomorrow (not literally, well, maybe a little). It is supposed to start snowing around 3 am so maybe we will get out in it some. Mom does not appreciate how lucky she is to have indoor facilities. Shiver me underbits!

    Yes, it’s Mary, a kindred soul. Wolfie is stretched out allllll the way across the bed, dreaming sweet puppy thoughts. He has never had a bad day in his life. Like Alice, he gets it right every time.
