Peekabo, I Almost See You by Ogden Nash

Middle-aged life is merry, and I love to
lead it,
But there comes a day when your eyes
are all right but your arm isn't long
enough
to hold the telephone book where you can read it,
And your friends get jocular, so you go
to the oculist,
And of all your friends he is the joculist,
So over his facetiousness let us skim,
Only noting that he has been waiting for you ever since
you said Good evening to his grandfather clock under
the impression that it was him,
And you look at his chart and it says SHRDLU QWERTYOP,
and you say Well, why SHRDNTLU QWERTYOP? and he
says one set of glasses won't do.
You need two.
One for reading Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason and
Keats's "Endymion" with,
And the other for walking around without saying Hello
to strange wymion with.
So you spend your time taking off your seeing glasses to put
on your reading glasses, and then remembering that your
reading glasses are upstairs or in the car,
And then you can't find your seeing glasses again because
without them on you can't see where they are.
Enough of such mishaps, they would try the patience of an
ox,
I prefer to forget both pairs of glasses and pass my declining
years saluting strange women and grandfather clocks.

Subject: RE: .
From: Bill D

Ancestral habits and a very early tradition have led us to preserve,
as the unit of time, a unit connected with the earth's movement; and
the unit to-day adopted is, as we know, the sexagesimal second of mean
time. This magnitude, thus defined by the conditions of a natural
motion which may itself be modified, does not seem to offer all the
guarantees desirable from the point of view of invariability. It is
certain that all the friction exercised on the earth--by the tides,
for instance--must slowly lengthen the duration of the day, and must
influence the movement of the earth round the sun. Such influence is
certainly very slight, but it nevertheless gives an unfortunately
arbitrary character to the unit adopted.





.....and not only that, it takes a hell of a big dog to weigh a ton!


what was the question, again?

The Final Proof: Global Warming is a Man-Made DisasterThe Final Proof: Global Warming is a Man-Made Disaster. by Steve Connor. Scientists have found the first unequivocal link between man-made greenhouse gases ...


The first of the three Milankovitch Cycles is the Earth's eccentricity. Eccentricity is, simply, the shape of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. This constantly fluctuating, orbital shape ranges between more and less elliptical (0 to 5% ellipticity) on a cycle of about 100,000 years. These oscillations, from more elliptic to less elliptic, are of prime importance to glaciation in that it alters the distance from the Earth to the Sun, thus changing the distance the Sun's short wave radiation must travel to reach Earth, subsequently reducing or increasing the amount of radiation received at the Earth's surface in different seasons.

let's suppose man knows best, and the earth is warming at an exagerated rate (well, except for the southern hemisphere which rather negates the concept of "global warming"), and instituting laws and regulations limiting people's freedoms is the best for all of humanity (like the Kyoto protocols adopted by Europe which has seen a marked increase in green house gasses, or GHG's, since ratification, while the U.S. has managed to reduce GHG's without instituting Kyoto), and producing dubious studies,designed to make us believe that paying taxes feels as good mentally as getting laid, preparing the mindless masses for huge tax increases in order to save mankind from our own foolish, global warming ways. Let's all jump on the global warming bandwagon and step up to the tectonic plate, so to speak, and put our money where our mouth is. Tax it all.


Which is nonsense?

I've been in a state of self-imposed pop culture illiteracy for about six years now. What I need to know is whether or not people are still saying "Whut up dawg?"

Now, I don't believe I've ever actually said "Whut up dawg?", but if I should get the urge to do so I'd like to know that it's still acceptable. Heck, I wouldn't want to have some young person look at me as if I'd just said "Twenty-three Skidoo!" Know what I mean?

Did you say rein, dear?

Well, we can't forget the very best reindeer song the world has ever heard:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (reindeer)
Had a very shiny nose (like a light bulb)
And if you ever saw it (saw it)
You would even say it glowed (like a flashlight)
All of the other reindeer (reindeer)
Used to laugh and call him names (like Pinocchio)
They never let poor Rudolph (Rudolph)
Join in any reindeer games (like Monopoly)

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say {say what?!}
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then how the reindeer loved him (loved him)
And they shouted out with glee (Hurrah!}
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (reindeer)
You'll go down in history...(like Columbus}

[If anybody wants to know, that was sung by kids in Pittsburgh, PA waay back in 1988. But I'm sure other people have sang it before that year and after that year in lots of other places]

Q. Why do pigs go 'oink'?

A. Because they are pigs.      That's what pigs do.



The Caspian Sea is a greater sculptor t - no, that's making sense.

My left slipper is a greater sculptor than it isn't. Damn, it's still making sense, so it might have value/worth.

Errrrrrrrrrrrm - tables do fine potatoes make. There, that should do it.

Trouble is, it made me laugh, so IT BLOODY HAD VALUE.

Thind is , when you're a taoist, there's no sich thung os 'no value'.

Did you know that the British hangmen used a mathematical formula to determine the drop? But it was also needful to view the "subject" as the person's build (e.g., a thick, bull-like neck) could affect the result. In this, as in so many other human endeavors, science was helpful but experience was what pulled it off successfully.

Here's the table that was used. This assumes a nice, thick, strong rope. You can work out the formula.

Hanging drop (assuming thick strong rope):

Weight                                 Drop

14 stone (196 lbs.)                   8 ft. 0 in.
13 1/2 stone (189 lbs.)                8 ft. 2 in.
13 stone (182 lbs.)                   8 ft. 4 in.
12 1/2 stone (175 lbs.)                8 ft. 6 in.
12 stone (168 lbs.)                   8 ft. 8 in.
11 1/2 stone (161 lbs.)                8 ft. 10 in.
11 stone (154 lbs.)                   9 ft. 0 in.
10 1/2 stone (147 lbs.)                9 ft. 2 in.
10 stone (140 lbs.)                   9 ft. 4 in.
9 1/2 stone (133 lbs.)                9 ft. 6 in.
9 stone (126 lbs.)                     9 ft. 8 in.
8 1/2 stone (119 lbs.)                9 ft. 10 in.
8 stone (112 lbs.)                     10 ft. 0 in

I guess if you weighed more than 196 lbs. they didn't hang you.

Aren't you glad to find this sort of thing out? You never know when you might need to know this stuff.

Knowing just how to solve this, he hauls the floating thing into the boat and goes to shore. He picks the thing up under his arm and walks up the dock and into town. There he finds what he's looking for. On a little side street is a smalls shop with a sign outside that says:

That night your great guns, unawares,
Shook all our coffins as we lay,
And broke the chancel window-squares,
We thought it was the Judgement-day

And sat upright. While drearisome
Arose the howl of wakened hounds:
The mouse let fall the altar-crumb,
The worm drew back into the mounds,

The glebe cow drooled. Till God cried, "No;
It's gunnery practice out at sea
Just as before you went below;
The world is as it used to be:

"All nations striving strong to make
Red war yet redder. Mad as hatters
They do no more for Christés sake
Than you who are helpless in such matters.

"That this is not the judgment-hour
For some of them's a blessed thing,
For if it were they'd have to scour
Hell's floor for so much threatening. . . .

"Ha, ha. It will be warmer when
I blow the trumpet (if indeed
I ever do; for you are men,
And rest eternal sorely need)."

So down we lay again. "I wonder,
Will the world ever saner be,"
Said one, "than when He sent us under
In our indifferent century!"

And many a skeleton shook his head.
"Instead of preaching forty year,"
My neighbour Parson Thirdly said,
"I wish I had stuck to pipes and beer."

Again the guns disturbed the hour,
Roaring their readiness to avenge,

LITTLE ANDREW
      AIR -- "Gypsy's Warning"

Andrew was a little infant,
      And his life was two years old;
He was his parents' eldest boy,
      And he was drowned, I was told.
His parents never more can see him
      In this world of grief and pain,
And Oh! they will not forget him
      While on earth they do remain.

On one bright and pleasant morning
      His uncle thought it would be nice
To take his dear little nephew
      Down to play upon a raft,
Where he was to work upon it,
      An this little child would company be --
The raft the water rushed around it,
      Yet he the danger did not see.

This little child knew no danger --
      Its little soul was free from sin --
He was looking in the water,
      When, alas, this child fell in.
Beneath the raft the water took him,
      For the current was so strong,
And before they could rescue him
      He was drowned and was gone.

Oh! how sad were his kind parents
      When they saw their drowned child,
As they brought him from the water,
      It almost made their hearts grow wild.
Oh! how mournful was the parting
      From that little infant son.
Friends, I pray you, all take warning,
      Be careful of your little ones.

And admit that this odd thread, around you has grown.
And some of the posts have been quite near the bone,
But some other threads too have been fading.

I had a friend who was divorced and had had a number of 'interesting' relationships with men she had met, including one she had been involved with for a couple of years, and who had been helping her renovate her house. He rang one day to say he just had to 'jump in the shower' and then he'd be over - and she never heard from him again.

She decided to write a book based on her assorted bizarre experiences, and was going to call it "Love in the Middle Ages".

I haven't seen her for a while, so I don't know if she ever wrote it.

Why does my post keep getting deleted?

I want mudcatters to vote against the BNP in a local derby newspaper poll to stop the bastards holding their nazi camp, and mudcat keeps removing my post.

What is going on?
    If you want to discuss controversial subjects like the BNP, then we're going to have to know who you are. You're welcome to register as a member with a real name and a real e-mail address (which we will not reveal to the public), and then you can choose a member name like "Guthrie's Guitar" and post with more freedom. But if we don't know who you are, how can we be sure you're not here just to stir up trouble?

If you posted as a guest below the line, then your post will be deleted, you must use constant identity, even as a guest, as you have just done by calling yourself Guthrie's Guitar.
There have been several BNP threads on Mudcat, and they have all ended in acrimony, so that's possibly why your previous posts were deleted.
Also can't see what good signing a petition will do, when did the authorities ever take any notice of petitions?

Guest, you're right - wrong place. If a local newspaper wants input from local people, a load of opinions from folks from all over the globe who heard about it on a USA based website and want to butt in aren't going to actually make the poll less effective. In fact, outsourcing the voting will likely make the opposition look weak and desperate.

I think the posts were likely deleted because of what Giok said. A thread about the BNP is an instant flame war.

Except that folkies and singers, songwriters, other writers and poets and the like such as hang around here always like to constantly hide meanings, sometimes where NOBODY can find them, in their own perverse manner.

The ones that are either VERY good or VERY bad can sometimes hide several of them per verse, the meaners occaisionally acting in a maener spirit. And there aren't enough mean-ees left anymore sometimes to form a strong union--a bad thing in a Republican administration.

But, as usual, I digress......

Damn! I actually GOT post 400 and didn't even realize it. If it had meant anything to me, I should have saved it for someone to whom it was important, who could have posted and still written it off as a meaningless act and therefore felt self justification. Infact, whoever made the meaningless claim on #400 can go ahead and claim it if it really means that much to you. But these are not The Days Of '49 and the only claim jumpers that ever get dealt with in the old fashioned manner in here steal copyrights, so I will leave this post in the Public Domain and any prospective prospector who wants to can tie their horse or mule to it.

If there's more than one claimant, than the two of you can find a way to take your pick or your shovel and take your pick (or else your shovel, take your pick....or else take.....Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh, YOU guys figure it out, maybe at ten paces).

And be careful! Those things are sharp and can cause some damaage! Do you realize what a pick will do to, say, a nose or your teeth when shovel come to push?

Subject: RE: .
From: Rapparee

I'd tell you some of the jokes of the tombstone-making and gravedigging trades, but you'd think I was a REAL sicko. Instead, I offer this touching poem:

The Ballad of Blasphemous Bill
Robert W. Service

I took a contract to bury the body
Of blasphemous Bill MacKie,
Whenever, wherever or whatsoever
The manner of death he die --
Whether he die in the light o' day
Or under the peak-faced moon;
In cabin or dance-hall, camp or dive,
Mucklucks or patent shoon;
On velvet tundra or virgin peak,
By glacier, drift or draw;
In muskeg hollow or canyon gloom,
By avalanche, fang or claw;
By battle, murder or sudden wealth,
By pestilence, hooch or lead --
I swore on the Book I would follow and look
Till I found my tombless dead.

For Bill was a dainty kind of cuss,
And his mind was mighty sot
On a dinky patch with flowers and grass
In a civilized bone-yard lot.
And where he died or how he died,
It didn't matter a damn
So long as he had a grave with frills
And a tombstone "epigram".
So I promised him, and he paid the price
In good cheechako coin
(Which the same I blowed in that very night
Down in the Tenderloin).
Then I painted a three-foot slab of pine:
"Here lies poor Bill MacKie",
And I hung it up on my cabin wall
And I waited for Bill to die.

Years passed away, and at last one day
Came a squaw with a story strange,
Of a long-deserted line of traps
'Way back of the Bighorn range;
Of a little hut by the great divide,
And a white man stiff and still,
Lying there by his lonesome self,
And I figured it must be Bill.
So I thought of the contract I'd made with him,
And I took down from the shelf
The swell black box with the silver plate
He'd picked out for hisself;
And I packed it full of grub and "hooch",
And I slung it on the sleigh;
Then I harnessed up my team of dogs
And was off at dawn of day.

You know what it's like in the Yukon wild
When it's sixty-nine below;
When the ice-worms wriggle their purple heads
Through the crust of the pale blue snow;
When the pine-trees crack like little guns
In the silence of the wood,
And the icicles hang down like tusks
Under the parka hood;
When the stove-pipe smoke breaks sudden off,
And the sky is weirdly lit,
And the careless feel of a bit of steel
Burns like a red-hot spit;
When the mercury is a frozen ball,
And the frost-fiend stalks to kill --
Well, it was just like that that day when I
Set out to look for Bill.

Oh, the awful hush that seemed to crush
Me down on every hand,
As I blundered blind with a trail to find
Through that blank and bitter land;
Half dazed, half crazed in the winter wild,
With its grim heart-breaking woes,
And the ruthless strife for a grip on life
That only the sourdough knows!
North by the compass, North I pressed;
River and peak and plain
Passed like a dream I slept to lose
And I waked to dream again.

River and plain and mighty peak --
And who could stand unawed?
As their summits blazed, he could stand undazed
At the foot of the throne of God.
North, aye, North, through a land accurst,
Shunned by the scouring brutes,
And all I heard was my own harsh word
And the whine of the malamutes,
Till at last I came to a cabin squat,
Built in the side of a hill,
And I burst in the door, and there on the floor,
Frozen to death, lay Bill.

Ice, white ice, like a winding-sheet,
Sheathing each smoke-grimed wall;
Ice on the stove-pipe, ice on the bed,
Ice gleaming over all;
Sparkling ice on the dead man's chest,
Glittering ice in his hair,
Ice on his fingers, ice in his heart,
Ice in his glassy stare;
Hard as a log and trussed like a frog,
With his arms and legs outspread.
I gazed at the coffin I'd brought for him,
And I gazed at the gruesome dead,
And at last I spoke: "Bill liked his joke;
But still, goldarn his eyes,
A man had ought to consider his mates
In the way he goes and dies."

Have you ever stood in an Arctic hut
In the shadow of the Pole,
With a little coffin six by three
And a grief you can't control?
Have you ever sat by a frozen corpse
That looks at you with a grin,
And that seems to say: "You may try all day,
But you'll never jam me in"?
I'm not a man of the quitting kind,
But I never felt so blue
As I sat there gazing at that stiff
And studying what I'd do.
Then I rose and I kicked off the husky dogs
That were nosing round about,
And I lit a roaring fire in the stove,
And I started to thaw Bill out.

Well, I thawed and thawed for thirteen days,
But it didn't seem no good;
His arms and legs stuck out like pegs,
As if they was made of wood.
Till at last I said: "It ain't no use --
He's froze too hard to thaw;
He's obstinate, and he won't lie straight,
So I guess I got to -- saw."
So I sawed off poor Bill's arms and legs,
And I laid him snug and straight
In the little coffin he picked hisself,
With the dinky silver plate;
And I came nigh near to shedding a tear
As I nailed him safely down;
Then I stowed him away in my Yukon sleigh,
And I started back to town.

So I buried him as the contract was
In a narrow grave and deep,
And there he's waiting the Great Clean-up,
When the Judgment sluice-heads sweep;
And I smoke my pipe and I meditate
In the light of the Midnight Sun,
And sometimes I wonder if they was,
The awful things I done.
And as I sit and the parson talks,
Expounding of the Law,
I often think of poor old Bill --
And how hard he was to saw.

With multiple threads about triskaidekaphobia, many are still unaware of criscodeckaphobia. It's the fear that the cook will spill grease on deck and make it slippery. Like that line from "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitgerald...

When supper time came the old cook came on deck
Saying fellows it's too rough to feed ya
At 7PM a main hatchway caved in
From the weight of many sailors on high-fat diets.

As my good ol' buddy Gus once said, "Ego iam errorem puto, quam antea veritatem putabam: utrum recte existimem, a te praesente audire cupio. In. primis summum errorem puto, omnipotentem Deum, in quo una nobis spes est, ex aliqua parte violabilem, aut coinquinabilem, aut corruptibilem credere. Hoc vestram haeresim affirmare scio; non quidem verbis. quibus nunc usus sum: nam et vos interrogati confitemini Deum esse incorruptibilem et omnino. inviolabilem et incoinquinabilem; sed cum coeperitis caetera exponere, cogimini eum corruptibilem, penetrabilem, et coinquinabilem profiteri. Dicitis enim aliam nescio quam gentem tenebrarum adversus Dei regnum rebellasse: Deum autem omnipotentem, cum videret quanta labes et vastitas immineret regnis suis, nisi aliquid adversae genti opponeret, et ei resisteret, misisse hanc virtutem, de cuius commixtione cum malo et tenebrarum gente mundus sit fabricatus. Hinc esse quod hic animae bonae laborant, serviunt, errant, corrumpuntur: ut necessarium haberent liberatorem, qui eas ab errore purgaret, et a commixtione solveret, et a servitute liberaret. Hoc ego nefas puto credere, Deum omnipotentem aliquam adversam gentem timuisse, aut necessitatem esse passum, ut nos in aerumnas praecipitaret."

Y esta una no lo quiere,
Es lo mismo que si un calvo

Ya no quieres caminar,
Porque no tienes,
Porque le falta,
Marihuana que fumar.

2 Las muchachas son de oro;
Las casadas son de plata;
Las viudas son de cobre,
Y las viejas oja de lata.

3 Mi vecina de enfrente
Se llamaba Doña Clara,
Y si no había muerto
Es probable se llamara.

4 Las muchachas de Las Vegas
Son muy altas y delgaditas,
Pero son mas pedigueñas
Que las animas benditas.

5 Las muchachas de la villa
No saben ni dar un beso,
Cuando las de Albuquerque
Hasta estiran el pescuezo.

6 Las muchachas Mexicanas
Son lindas como una flor,
Y hablan tan dulcemente
Que encantan de amor.

7 Una cosa me da risa --
Pancho Villa sin camisa.
Ya se van los Carranzistas
Porque vienen los Villistas.

Al lugar a donde mandó
La convención Zapata.

Yeah, me 'n' ol' Buffalo Bill (we called him "Buffy") were good friends out here in the mountains. 'Course, I knew him when he was growin' up back in Illinois, in Monmouth, him and the Earp brothers. They was always gettin' into trouble. After Buffy got out on the plains he nailed several vampires, which is how he got the name Buffy the Vampire Nailer. Yah see, his last name was Bill and his first name was Buffalo 'cuz he wuz named after the city in New York. His daddy was named Wild, Wild Bill.

An' I wouldn't lie none about any of that. Specially about the Earp boys. They wuz pure trouble: Burp, Urp, Purp, and Wyatt. He was the youngest. Never could shoot worth anything, so 'most every day he'd lose fiver er ten dollars to Buffy. Buffy couldn't shoot either, but he could do it better'n Wyatt. We'd put 'em inside a barn and bet who which one could hit it inside of a hunert shots.

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"
The tower responded, "Who is calling?"
The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"
The tower replied "It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines Flight, it is 3 o'clock. If it is an Air Force, it is 1500 hours. If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells. If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3. If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon."

A TOUGH U.S. Marine sergeant got word that the father of one of his men had passed away. At roll call he snapped: "Hey, Smith, your father died!" The Marine fainted on the spot. A week later the sister of another Marine died, and the sergeant once again called his men together. "Jones," he yelled out, "your sister died last night!" The Marine burst into tears.
   Finally, word got back to the general about the sergeant's insensitivity, and he was called on the carpet and told to be less direct and gruff when one of his men suffered a tragedy. A week later the sergeant was notified that Private Miller had just lost his mother. Remembering what the general had said, he lined up his troop and ordered: "Everyone whose mother is alive, please take one step forward - NOT SO FAST, MILLER!"

Back in line, Private Peace! Your thread's survived and is back from the grave!

I was a passenger in a car that was pulled over in Washington DC once by an OFFICER whose last name was Peace. Officer Peace, the Peace Officer. Said so right on his badge. I wasn't going to push it and ask him if his first name was Warren, lest he'd issue a Warren for my arrest.

He'd seen the damnfool driver passing around a newly-opened wine bottle and drinking from it at a stop light. He took the three of us to a Police Station and then let us go to walk back to the car to "sober up". We finally got to the club just in time to see Tom Rush. I never found out who the opening act was.......

We'd not gotten to drink much, so he was still at the point of being an Officer, rather than an Ossifer, and he WAS a gentleman, as befits a Man Of Peace, even one who carries a piece.

"Oh! How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning,
Oh! How I'd love to remain in bed
For the hardest blow of all is to hear the bugler call:
'You've got to get up, you've got to get up,
You've got to get up this morning!'"

Someday I'm going to murder the bugler
Someday they're going to find him dead
I'll amputate his reveille and stomp upon it heavily
And spend the rest of my life in bed!

A bugler in the army is the luckiest of men
He wakes the boys at five and then goes back to bed again
He doesn't have to blow again until the afternoon
If ev'rything goes well with me I'll be a bugler soon!

"Oh! How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning,
Oh! How I'd love to remain in bed
For the hardest blow of all is to hear the bugler call:
'You've got to get up, you've got to get up,

Oh, boy! The minute the battle is over
Oh, boy! The minute the foe is dead
I'll put my uniform away and move to Philadelphia
And spend the rest of my life in bed!

I DON'T WORK FOR A LIVING (Collected Australian Version)

based on a song by James Mullen and Edward Leroy Freeman

Chorus
I don't work for a living I get along alright without
I don't toil all day, I suppose it's because I'm not built that way
Some people work for love and say it's all sunshine and gain,
But if I can't get sunshine without any work I think I'll stay out in the rain!

They say we're all born for a purpose, they say we're all born with a gift
Some people like to be famous, I suppose it's by hard work and thrift.
There's lots of us fighting and striving, for seat down in the old A.C.T.
But if I've got a seat in my trousers, and a missus to work for me….

Chorus

Now give me a nail and a hammer, and a picture to hang on the wall
And give me a strong step ladder, you know that I might fall,
And give me a couple of waiters, and a barrel of good old Bass Ale
And I bet you I'll hang up that picture, if somebody drives the nail.

Last Chorus
I don't work for a living I get along alright without
I live peacefully, labour disputes never worry me.
I love my family and the missus, o how I adore.
I decided to make them all happy, that's why I never go home anymore!

Song: Merry-Go-Round



I have tried in vain never had success
So it seems my life is nothing but a mess
I have lost my only friend
Now it seems I have to start again

Merry-go-round
Where am I bound
With my love and feelings
Merry-go-round
Who wants to kiss me
And hug me and miss me
Yes, who wants to do it
I wish that I knew it
Merry-go-round
Wish I had found
Somebody to care for
Where am I bound
Life is so lonely
If life is just only
To love with my loving
Goes round and round

Looking for someone
Who would want to stay
I might find her
With a bit of luck one day
But who knows
So until then
I can only try and try again

Merry-go-round
Where am I bound
With my love and feelings
Merry-go-round
Who wants to kiss me
And hug me and miss me
Yes, who wants to do it
I wish that I knew it
Merry-go-round
Wish I had found
Somebody to care for
Where am I bound
Life is so lonely
If life is just only
To love with my loving
Goes round and round

Where am I bound
With my love and feelings
Merry-go-round
Who wants to kiss me
And hug me and miss me
Yes, who wants to do it
I wish that I knew it
Merry-go-round

Somebody to care for
Where am I bound
Life is so lonely
If life is just only
To love with my loving
Goes round and round

re pinwheels.
I have some:

1,8,11,609,619

I still need 69,88,101,111,181, and those above 619 ( 689,808,818,1001,1111,1691,1881,6009,6119,6699,6889,8008,8118,8698,8888).

I do not think I will try for those above 4 digits- I would not want to upset Rapaire.

I can't remember what pinwheels I have in the "smaller" numbers of less than 5 digits. But I do have 16091, 16191, 16891, 18081 and 18181.

I think I did upset Rapaire with 18181. At least he did a lot of ostentatious sobbing, and there was all that stuff about his mother's number and me stealing his inheritance. Some people will do anything to get sympathy!

I would never do such a thing. Just because my mother cut me out of her will and didn't leave me any numbers - not even her crummy ones that weren't worth having anyway, and I had to work my fingers to the bone to bring up two children on a pittance, and we were so poor that we nearly always had to live in houses with numbers nobody wanted - like number 13. And just because my collection of pinwheels is all I have to leave my children......No, I would never stoop so low just to get people's sympathy!

Aw are we doing comedy songs then? Here's my rewrite of The Sally Gardens (The Sadly Gardens)

It was down by the Sadly Gardens, my love and I did meet,
As she crossed the Sadly Gardens, with bad breath- and smelly feet.
The odour was so ran--cid, I could smell her from the pa--rk bench,
Her best friend never told her, she had such an awful stench.

In a field down by the river, my fat love raised her arms,
Three inches of hair in her armpits, did not add to her charms.
Tattoos all over her body, made her look much worse than weird,
And the warts on her nose and earlobes, drew my eyes from off her beard.

It was down by the Sadly Gardens, my love and I did meet,
As she crossed the Sadly Gardens, with bad breath- and smelly feet.
I would not want any another, so no oth--er wi-ll I find,
She is hairy and smelly and ugly, but we all know love is blind.

Version by Mike Hill Nov 2006

Such a sweet sounding song...Best wishes, Mike.

Too, too interesting. Let's restore some balance here!

For an atom or molecule in which two transitions are driven by laser beams, a three-state model is used. Transitions among the three states are caused only by the oscillating electric fields of the laser beams. The amplitudes and detunings of the two laser beams, which are various functions of the time, appear in the Schrödinger equation for the atom or molecule. In certain cases, the Schrödinger equation can be solved analytically, to find transition probabilities and the probability of no transition. This is done by using Clausen's special function, or by assuming that the sum of the two detunings is zero at all times. Conditions for complete transfer of the population from the ground state to an excited state are obtained from the analytic solutions.

Right now, I live accapella. The worst parts of that life can be too meaningless even for this thread. The best parts are way above and beyond it. You get some of the back roads, alleys and fringes of the middle to lower middle grounds in here. I hope I haven't disobeyed any "No Dumping" signs.

In fact, I'll tell the arresting officer that I thought the sign said, "Fine For Dumping", so I did. And will continue to do.

And I hope any Severn overflowings that might cause any damage never come from me.

Not that it all means anything, or it wouldn't be here. If it ever starts to, Joe can make any post an offer it can't refuse and send it to either Severn river bottom in cement shoes.

A good old yellow-and-black American "Yield Ahead" road sign might look good posted on the Tower Of London, though.

I had a hunch it was so, GS. And when the name Quasimodo rang a bell, I realized he was the half brother of Semimodo. Both of them kinda look like they'd been through the ringer, but if the bell laws are stricken and re-pealed, they'll be back to work before the time that they'd have to go through the changes. Just like they tolled us a thousand times before.

"Boys…" Mr Wampler the troop leader addressed the young scouts that sat in a semi-circle at his feet, "…the easiest and most accurate way to tell the age of a guitar is to carefully count the growth rings apparent in the spruce top. If you'll notice, as with any wood, the top of the guitar will carry with it the exact age of the guitar by simply counting the stripes of grain…"

From the circle of boys a hand shyly rose

"Do you have a question, Jimmy?"

Jimmy nervously replied, "Um, yes, scout leader Wampler. Wouldn't it be easier to look at the serial number and check on the internet?"

"But, Jimmy, that isn't the boy scout way, now is it?" Mr Wampler sternly replied.

"But….." Jimmy began again.

"Jimmy, do you want your luthiery merit badge or not?"
