Unscary Announcement

“Whenever I see a heading like that,” says Admin, “I think double-talk from the get-go.”

“What should it be then?” says Spence.

“How about – Announcement That May Be Moderately Scary At First Blush?”

“A bit of a mouthful, no?” Spence says.

I open my eyes: No food to be seen. Not a scrap.

“The point,” says Spence, “is that this blog won’t be affected at all, will continue to operate as it has since time immemorial. The news is that there is now a brand-new Facebook place to go for Chet news, sneak peek excerpts, fun and games.

I’m at the door.

Sometimes Admin mutters. He’s muttering now, something about Mark Zuckerberg, Watson, Alan Turing. All perps, most likely, although the names don’t ring a bell.

I’m still at the door.

Welcome ocean lover, shotgun rider, DeNiro quoter.

    That ocean view looks great. We’re going to have more snow.

    We got scared for sure yesterday when Molly told me we were all going to Facebook. She got an email that said the good fun here was going and she thought here was here.

    Good morning, Melanie and all.

    We here are comfortable with our blog. Facebook is too big and impersonal. We like the intimacy of this site. We are friends here, whereas FB is just somewhere to go to look at pictures or gain info.

    Sooooo, looking for Spring here! I think, B & M, I’m going to have to break down and get a grow light for those old timey seeds you sent.

    Get a gander of the Nation’s weather. Sorry C.Harris and Dawson and LizF. Can’t find yours.

    Now see. That’s what makes a great writer. Being able to cut that 9 word sentence into two words and convey the same sentiment. I wasn’t really scared at all.
    Our outside cat is back again. He’s very noisy. It’s -20 (F). I’m ready for winter to be gone.

    Dawson I did not know that you served katcicles! Just kidding, my furbally friends.

    We love Facebook. If not for FB and the blog we would not have any friends at all.

    later, mom is going to help Grandma with her 50 years of slides that are being scanned into her ‘puter. Mom says there are some of her that would best be trashed but G’ma won’t hear of it.

    I am a latecomer to FB. I like Chet’s FB, because I know so many of the posters! It’s another layer of the Chet experience. As the saying goes, c’mon in, the water is fine! I think some of you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Admin!…Sounds like Admin is down on all things Computer…grunt!….I’ve been reading about Alan Turning. Did you know that the logo of Apple computer is often erroneously referred to as a tribute to Alan Turing, with the bite mark a reference to his method of suicide? Both the designer of the logo and the company deny that there is any homage to Turing in the design of the logo….snort!… What a strange co-winky dink….sniff!

    Mollypop, We think you have a good question. Peaches should be Queen for a Day on March 19th, not me, Maggie. After all, I do not have any feathers sprouting on me.

    We are not familiar with Alan Turing.

    Dan is OUT today. My sister, a teacher, is on Winter break and decided to take him on a date.

    He was totally (as teens used to say) excited. Called her yesterday and said he had a list if 16 things he wanted to do. She suggested prioritizing them. But he wouldn’t hear of it. Luckily, he lost his list this morning before they left.

    Honest, I did not hide it!

    Med wise: Seems to be fine. No side effects.

    I was looking a site that was mentioning top books of the world ends and what’s left variety.

    Not my usual fare, but I had read some of them, 1984, Brave New World, The Handmaiden’s Tale etc . . .

    Found one I thought my Guys would like, World War Z (Zombie book), one called, Never Let Me Go (which I thought Dan would like because he likes Japanese writers), and one I thought I’d like The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard.

    I can get the first two no problem. Just going to ask before I do. The third???
    Not on Kindle, but I can get a USED paperback for ONE HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS.

    Yeah, right.

    Melanie, Back to the tomato topic. We are going to start ours around mid March, about 9 weeks bwefore outside planting. Wish we had a green house, but maybe in the next house.

    What we do have is a shelving unit in a south facing window, the best exposure for inside planting. We have some regular fluorescent lights mounted above each shelf. That combo does an ok job for growing. The plants are not as robust as the ones you buy, but they do catch up in a couple of weeks after being planted outside. You cannot find these plants at the stores, with the exception of the more commonly known heirlooms, so if you want the tomatoes, you still have to grow them yourself.

    Rio, with your friend on her new health kick, we can still send you some seeds if you want.

    Staff and Wolfie, when are you going to start yours?

  17. B.Stover
    11:29 am on February 24th, 2011

    Melanie: Check out Amazon.com. You can get Drowned World new in paperback for $35. They have many of his novels and a collection of his complete short stories in an edition that’s over one thousand pages for $23 hardcover.

  18. Melanie
    11:38 am on February 24th, 2011

    Thanks Barb & Maggie, we tried the South facing jut out green house window last year and got very spindle plants. So I thought with the grow light it might help.

    Thanks B. Stover.

    MagPie!… No thanks! That’s way too much work. I know you-know-who wouldn’t be very happy with me if tomato seeds show up in her mailbox. …grunt!….She is going to plant tomatoes and peppers in her mother’s garden this year….sniff!… It will be a joint project that will hopefully keep her mother busy during the summer….wheeze!

    Melanie – the book The Road is a favorite. They made a movie a year ago that was a flop. I knew that book couldn’t be made into a movie. Mom has it on her kindle and when she finished it she went right back to the beginning to read it again.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    12:18 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Rio, Didn’t think that was “your cup of tea” but thought we would ask anyway. Unfortunately, we can’t send plants to you. Not quite as bad as trying to ship a puppy, but still not a good idea. The garden will be a positive project that may help her mother’s mental outlook, and will provied some yummy food, low in salt for the dinner table. Try some green beans too, easy to grow and so good.

    Barb is heading to work for a few hours. BBL

    Rio: That is interesting about Alan Turing whom I’ve never heard of. I’ll have to check it out.

  24. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    1:53 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Melanie — Regarding the book Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro, we haven’t read it (and it was made into a movie this year; mixed reviews), but the author also wrote Remains of the Day (disregard that movie too) which is probably one of the most elegantly written books we have ever read. So, it may be worth a try, but we would actually recommend Remains of the Day even more, although it may not fall in the category you are looking for.

  25. B.Stover
    1:58 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Here’s the Wikipedia article on Alan Turing. He was convicted under the same law that sent Oscar Wilde to prison for two years. Both bad days for the British criminal justice system. Why in the world didn’t they test the apple for cyanide?


  26. B.Stover
    2:01 pm on February 24th, 2011

    The novel Remains of the Day was very good. I believe that Ishiguro won the Booker that year. It’s been a long time since I saw the movie but I liked it when it came out.

  27. B.Stover
    2:34 pm on February 24th, 2011

    I have a comment awaiting moderation regarding Remains of the Day. Perhaps at some point I’ll work out exactly was constitutes content that needs moderation.

    3:03 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Bee, We read the Wikipedia article on Turing. It seemed to us that the apple was the culprit, but that he might have used that as a way of making it easier on him mother. Guess he wanted her to think it was accidental, or maybe it was. Interesting info, boy have we come a long was since the 1950s.

  29. B.Stover
    3:11 pm on February 24th, 2011

    I think it was a dereliction of duty for the investigating police office not to test the apple. Then the answer would have been definite.

  30. B.Stover
    3:12 pm on February 24th, 2011

    And yes, we’ve come a long way since 1950. I just hope we don’t start going backward.

    Turning!… He could have been murdered by someone who know of his love of Snow White and and the Witches poisoned apples…snort!… He was a genius and he was mistreated. I wonder how the software industry would have been different if he had lived to be an old man …..sneeze!

    3:27 pm on February 24th, 2011

    There is a segment of the country (hint: T.P.) that would like us to do just that.

    3:32 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Justified!…We looked for Justified On Demand last night and it was missing again….wah!…I hope they don’t treat our other favorite show Breaking Bad this way too…sniff!

    MagPie!…Who’s T.P?…snort!

  34. B.Stover
    3:32 pm on February 24th, 2011

    B&M: LOL! Yes….that’s correct.

    What happened to Turing should not have happened. The same is true of Oscar Wilde.

    3:34 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Mom tried to pick up where Turing left off but it was ten years later. She was part of the design team that started electronic stock transfer that was always done by messengers on bicycles in NYC. So geeky.

    Melanie: How was Dan’s date?

    Rio, We only brought it up cuz we were responding to a comment by Bee. No treading intended.

  43. Melanie
    5:22 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Will write more later, but right now, we are watching the beaver eating twigs under the closest apple tree to the house.

    Some guy came up and told us that it must have been hit by a car, because it was just in our driveway making a threatening stance. By the time we got out there, it was fine, just eating twigs.

    Unfortunately, our smallest maple tree has been covered by the snow plow past the fence we put around it. Hope it survives.

    We are getting the beaver repellent.

    I’d take a picture but it is the glooming. We could send the pack out but don’t want the dogs hurt.

    5:42 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Melanie, Those guys do have big teeth. I read that if they don’t chew wood they will die, because their teeth get too long. Also, think I read they will die if they lose a tooth. Does that sound right?

    Bucky Beaver! I can’t wait to see how his dam building has progressed.

    Hmmm. Barb & MagPie: There is nothing wrong with this beaver’s teeth.

    MollyPop: Thanks (that is done with the sarcastic font!)

  47. Mollypop
    6:55 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Melanie – I know you don’t want Bucky Beaver taking down all of your trees, but how can you stop him. He’s protected isn’t he? In the meantime you can get some great pictures.

    Mom is up a frazzle tree right now. She has been attempting to install a simple wifi printer for her mom all day. Now the blasted computer, after being rebooted, but up a black screen message, something about usb overload. We did not add anything to the usb, in fact, we unplugged the previous printer. Mom’s mom had to go to a meeting, so she left mom there with Epson support (4th call), who accidentally hung up on her. We know you can’t help us, but at least you have a clue what we are talking about. Mom is just staring at the walls, dreading having to tell mom’s mom that she killed her computer. *major sigh*

  49. Macy the Min-Pin

    MollyPop: Have written to the place who sells Beaver Repellent (yes, there really is such a thing). I have asked about odor and is it safe to apply in the watershed.

    We will see!

    Hey y’all! Mom stopped at the bookstore after she got off work today. She was buying some more picture books for my girl, but didn’t see Quacky Baseball, so she asked about it. She was informed that the book hasn’t been released yet, and in fact wasn’t coming out until March. Mom told the lady at the bookstore that both Amazon and the guy who actually wrote the book were under the impression that it already has been released. Guess they’re wrong!

  52. Tupper and Gilly

    Hi everyone –
    just checking in for a minute. One of Mama’s co-workers came to the very hands on place to work with a terrible cold, but didn’t tell anyone. She didn’t work for a couple days, and then cme in today, hacking, sneezing and coughing, and THEN tells Mama that she was really sick the other day when she was in.
    So now Mama has come home with the Cold from Hell. She is sneezing her nose off, aches from eyelash to toenail and can barely keep her eyes open. So, she is being sensible and going to bed.
    The good news is that because she is so sick, Daddy is putting us up on the bed to snuggle with her and make her feel better. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow and we’ll have more time on the blog.
    Night all – its snuggle time!

  53. Kirby T. Penworthy
    8:02 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Beavers!…. My friend says she loves beavers ever since she was a little girl and read a story about them in a book from the Book Mobile (not to be confused with the Wookie Mobile)….heh!… She wishes all the time that a gang of sharp toothed beavers would invade our neighborhood and chomp down all the Sycamore trees that she is deathly allergic to….snort!….We did not know this back when she bought my house here… grump!… Misery upon misery since living here with all the allergies from those blasted trees. One day a fireman told her he was deathly allergic to Sycamore trees leaves, which are HUGE. After researching it he found out that the leaves have the same makeup as fiberglass…grunt!….We have been here six years now, and she is seriously debating whether to try and sell the house for a huge LOSS…gruffle!…Or continue the misery until 2012 when the world as we know it will end anyways….sniff! …What to do, what to do?…fart!

    Tup n Gil – Mom goes crazy when People spread their germs. Thoughtless and selfish

    Macy – Mom always worked on the great big computers and called desktop support when she needed PC help. She has a question about the USB part of the printer if it’s using a wifi or maybe Bluetooth connection. The computer is not ‘killed’ and we all share your pain with these support idiots. We don’t know much about getting a black screen. We always get the Blue Screen of Death.

  58. AbbietheKitty
    8:24 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Our last frost date in ND is May 21st. So we start ours about the first of April. That gives us 6 weeks and maybe more depending on the weather. We do put them out as soon as possible but we don’t do any of the wall of water stuff. However we do use upside down ice cream pails if it gets too cold. That works for a while.

    And if they get too spindly we just plant them deep.

    that’s what staff says anyway

  59. Staff
    8:27 pm on February 24th, 2011

    We had one really sick kid in the office today on my first day back. Mr.Staff waited on him and had strict instructions to keep any germs to himself!

    8:27 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Germs!… My friend says she actually works with people who stay home when they are sick….grunt!… How cool is that? She has not had a true blue c**d in over a year now (I don’t want to say the word or I will jinx her health)…sniff!…She has stomach problems every now and then, but nothing that serious….Me?…I’m tip-top and my shoulder is feeling fine!…gruff!

  61. Mollypop

    8:30 pm on February 24th, 2011

    I’m missing one of my Quacky books from Amazon.

    RIO!! Your friend has probably already done this, but she needs to let the doc know that she is allergic to the Sycamore trees. This could be part of her problem.

    Your bookmobile thought got me thinking. A mobil library van comes by our library every once in a while to exchange books for the town.

    The library was given by William Cullen Bryant, who was born around in a homestead down the road (4 miles as the raven flies).

  64. Melanie
    8:35 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Whoa! We had two different double postings!

    Abbie: In ND your last frost date is before ours!! That just doesn’t seem right. Ours is May 31. What is a wall of water? Did I not see a post?

    Black screen of death. Blue Screen of death?

    We get the curser (aptly named) doing the rainbow twirling thing of death.

  65. Melanie
    8:40 pm on February 24th, 2011

    If your friend’s knee swelling is being caused by inflamation and the doc is not having any luck figuring it out, allergies should be considered.

    I am an allergy queen. I am allergic to a lot of things because of a certain medicine they gave me for the HCV. It caused my immune system to kick up. After I was taken off of it, I still had the HCV, but also arthritis and all sorts of allergies.

    If your friend’s immune system is in overdrive, yes, swelling can be a problem.

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:46 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Allergies!… I made her read your comment and she is flummoxed again….grunt!… The plan is, give it a month on the new diet and meds, if knees are still painful with swelling then see doctor in early April and have more blood tests….grump!… Her life sort of sucks right now, although today she said everything felt a lot better, not good, but better. So maybe there is some hope….wuffle!

    A wall of water is a open ended clear plastic bag which can be filled with water and creates a ‘wall’ which protects tender plants from freezing. They are hot sellers in North Dakota.

    I can’t explain why we are an earlier last frost date than you. Our first frost date is Sept 21 also. When is your first frost date?

The actor who plays Boyd is unbelievably awesome….snort! … My friend just wants to stare at Raylan all night and day long. She is smitten….grunt! ….I’m starting to hate Raylan, she likes him way too much….sniff!

    Stover!… Now that she’s gone to bed I can say this….snuffle!… She doesn’t teach us anything on Chet’s blog anymore. I think she has taken all her teaching to her own blog and I miss that part of her postings very much….grump!… We used to learn new stuff from her about grammar, literature and what not, but now we don’t…sniff!…Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me? …gruffle!

  71. Melanie
    9:15 pm on February 24th, 2011

    The closest first frost date is Sept 29, but that is an hour East of us and in the valley. That place is around 100 feet above sea level and we’re 1,300 feet above sea level.
    So ours is probably closer to yours.

    I might have to look into Justified.

    Wöökie, was the book “Remains of the Day” what the movie with Anthony Hopkins was in based upon?

    Whoa, with that many weird prep phrases I can see it is time for me to go to bed.

    B. Stover: Ignore the above. I am now 71% through P & P.

    9:15 pm on February 24th, 2011

    Rio, Barb gets a warm fuzzy feeling when she thinks about the bookmobile they had when she was a kid. She loved books, and it was so exciting when it came to her school.

    Staff, Barb is planning to put her plants out between May 15th and 20th, but she found that 6 weeks of inside growing isn’t quite enough for the heirlooms. Maybe they grow slower, or maybe it is just our lighting conditions. Last year she did 8 weeks and this year she is going to plan on 9.

    Where is Siber? Hope all is ok.

    You are up high that is why your growing season is shorter. If you were sea level like North Dakota you would have a longer season.
    Barb, I will take your advice about the heirlooms and start them earlier. Now all I have to do is remember to pick up the seeds when I go back in mid March. …
    Good night all,
    Mr. Husky I hope you are returning to us soon.

    It has been two days since we have heard from SiberH. This is very unusual. I hope all is well.

    Third Day!…If he, SiberH, is missing tomorrow, it makes me think we all need a back-up plan… snort!…We each need a contact person or animal that one of our family members can contact in case something, er.., really bad happens to one of the Plunderers….sniffle!…I don’t want one of us to just “disappear” and is never heard from again… sob! sob!sob!…I know it is morbid to think about, but I for one want to know what happens to my friends…..snort!

    Justified: Rio: I Saw Episode 3 yesterday. It had an interesting ending. You are right. Boyd really is a good actor. He really keeps you guessing what he will do next. I am glad you can get it On Demand now.

    Really?…No response? … Hmmm…. Maybe we aren’t such good friends after all,…grump!… Or all you guys are just old, tired and have gone to bed already. snort!…I’ll see what tomorrow brings on this idea….sniff!

    Good night. We need to discuss Rio’s emergency plan. A contact person for the regulars woulod be nice. Let’s think about a way to do this.

    Mollie!…I’m a week behind you, which really Sucks!…snort! … We cannot discuss what happens unless you can go back in time and not give away anything…grunt!…But it is hard to speculate when you already know the future…It Sucks!…grump!

    We are worried about Cyber H. And Wookie, of course.

    Rio, I like the idea of a backup plan. You have the best ideas!

    My Quacky should arrive tomorrow. Mum’s the word!

    Goodnight, y’all! I’m really bummed that Mom couldn’t get my book — er, I mean my girl’s book — today. So I guess I’ll just go to bed and pout about it! And even if Mom orders a copy tomorrow, we’ll still be behind everyone else in getting their copies AND the inside joke — whether it’s overblown or not. Bummer!!!

    Mollypop: There is nothing new on any of the Facebook pages yet today. Is there really bad weather in their area?

    Rio: I like your idea of emergency contacts. What is the plan? (Looks like we need the same thing for Chet etc.)

    We agree about emergency contacts. It’s snowing here like crazy. Mom will try to dig the car out soon because then the 35 mph winds will start. Mom couldn’t get to the bird feeder and the cardinal was hogging it. It’s a cardinal feeder but of course for all the birds. So Mom poured seed all over the patio which really made the juncos happy.

    I love juncos! There’s a new post today called “No Post Today.”
