03:41.35brlcadTheRedBaron: I've had the 30-year Macallan
03:42.23brlcad(and just about everything younger)
03:42.42brlcadnot really one of my favorites
03:43.34gn00biebrlcad: I prefer Aberlour Abunadh to the Macallans I have had
03:43.55gn00biethe 30yo could be something special I guess
03:44.11gn00bieif I am in the mood for a speysider, Aberlour it is
03:48.18brlcadyeah, aberlour is much better
03:48.52brlcadthusfar, though, Balvenie has been my favorite (30-yr)
03:49.01brlcad(it's a speyside too)
03:49.12gn00bieI am more of an Islay man myself
03:49.57brlcadmm, Laphroaig is good
03:50.19brlcadBowmore I have to be in a mood for.. ultra peaty
03:50.20gn00bieLaphroaig is pretty good, and if you have not tried out Ardbeg, you should
03:51.03gn00bieArdbeg is this wonderfully balanced whisky, I would say under a 100 bucks, it is a dead heat between the Aberlour cask strength stuff and Ardbeg
03:51.12gn00bieTalisker rounds it out into a 3 way tie
03:51.17brlcadnot tried ardbeg
03:51.49gn00biebrlcad: you should, it is just super good, it is wonderfully balanced
03:52.25gn00bienow the Abunadh is a different style, but I rate Ardbeg at slightly better than the Abunadh
03:52.58brlcadi shall have to give it a go
03:55.28brlcadcurious history
03:56.28brlcadthe distillery was briefly closed, then limited produciton, yet still have a 17 and 25 year
03:56.45orangethey stole it
03:56.47gn00bieyes, it was a shame
03:56.53gn00bieI would stick with the 10yo
03:57.07gn00bieit is under a 50 bucks, and the best under a 50 bucks you can spend
03:57.27brlcadit was closed from 27yr to 19yr ago .. so anything in that range is .. curious :)
03:57.43brlcadI suppose 17 year should be within when they reopened now
03:58.14gn00biebrlcad: a whisky stops aging once you bottle it, so it is probably leftover stuff from way back that has sat in a bottle for 10 odd years?
03:58.32brlcadi tend to really appreciate the smoothness of the older aged ones over the harsh younger flavors
03:58.46brlcadah, perhaps
03:59.01gn00biebrlcad: I am one for a robust malt, but Ardbeg is super smooth
03:59.24gn00biebut having said that, I have had a couple of 21yo, most of my experience is with 8 to 15yo stuff
03:59.39gn00biecannot afford the more expensive stuff (DoDa will kill me)
04:00.51gn00biebrlcad: though orange here is a macallan man
04:01.02orangeI'm no expert
04:01.05orangebut I enjoy what I have
04:01.48gn00bieMacallan is not half bad, but for the same buck, you get better whiskies of a similar class
04:02.09brlcadit's not that macallan is bad, I have a couple bottles right now :)
04:02.42gn00biebrlcad: I may have to invite myself over one of these days :P
04:03.02brlcadgn00bie: any time :)
04:04.10gn00bieit is good to know that there is a population out there that thinks beyond JWalker Black when thinking scotch
04:04.26gn00bieonce again, Black is a pretty decent whisky, but for the price, I would much rather have something else
04:05.41brlcadbleh, I've had the Blue just to compare and wasn't impressed
04:06.10brlcaddefinitely smoother, but still a funky walker taste that just begs for something to mix it with
04:06.26gn00bieblue is proof that a fool and his money are parted soon
04:07.14gn00biewell Walker and Regal served a very different purpose as cognac replacement in britain, so for that purpose, they are OK drinks
04:08.57brlcadwhich is exactly why I didn't buy the bottle
04:09.15gn00biemy dad is a chivas regal man, I got him 2 bottles of the 18yo stuff for his burrday last year
04:09.35brlcadone of the nice perks of getting put up in nice hotels, can try one overpriced glass just to get a good sample, see if the bottle is worth it
04:09.35gn00biecannot say I understand it, but he seemed to enjoy it, so oh well
04:09.53gn00biehow much was a glass of blue?
04:10.14brlcadI probably saved $500 or more last summer alone that way ;)
04:10.39brlcadmm, it was 20 or 30
04:10.53brlcadusual price for a top shelf
04:11.29gn00bieI have had green once someplace in NYC a couple of years back
04:11.50gn00bieI came away distinctly unimpressed, though to be fair, not sure how long the bottle had been open etc
04:12.29gn00bieI will sip on a black if that is the only thing available at a bar, blends are just a waste of good single malts in my opinion
04:17.22brlcadis getting thirsty
04:26.38TheRedBarontakes notes
04:27.51TheRedBaronbought Valumzie a 12yo Macallan for her birthday
04:28.16TheRedBaronwas by far the nicest whiskey I've ever tasted - which is a very very very narrow scope :)
04:28.31brlcadmakes a lovely gift
04:28.52brlcadit's an excellent introduction scotch too
04:29.13brlcadI usually start friends off there, then take them to a few extremes to compare
04:29.53brlcadsomething really peaty and young, something young and very mild, something very old, etc
04:32.03brlcadyou often can't tell in isolation .. yet put a quarter shot of one against another with a glass of water in between and people start to get it
04:32.23TheRedBaronbrlcad: Valumzie is wondering if you've ever had a smoked whiskey
04:32.40brlcada smoked whiskey such as?
04:33.08brlcadnot sure what that means, so probably not
04:33.26TheRedBaronwhiskey thats aged in burnt barrels?
04:33.46gn00biewell, most whiskies are aged in bourbon barrels, which are charred
04:34.36Valumziethose are some of the names I have been given for smoked ones: Bowmore, Laphroaig, Talisker
04:35.00gn00bieoh oh, there is no barrel burning involved there, just the malting is very very very peaty
04:35.25gn00biethough more than likely, most of these whiskies are aged in bourbon casks, which like I said, are charred
04:35.46brlcadgn00bie: that's part of why I love the balvenie 21 portwood, aged in oak basks, finished in port wine casks
04:35.57TheRedBaronshe says the french term for those whiskies means "smoked"
04:36.06TheRedBaronthats why she was using that term :)
04:36.38brlcadValumzie: that's the "peaty" flavor .. for all intensive purposes peaty == smoked
04:37.00gn00biebrlcad: if you prefer sherried and ported whiskies, I find that a talisker is much more satisfying
04:37.50gn00bieTheRedBaron: I am tempted to make some remarks about your MiL and smoke, but I am not gonna :P
04:38.09brlcadgn00bie: hm, not for me, though I've not had an older talisker in fairness
04:38.11TheRedBarongn00bie: such constraint! this is not typical of you ;)
04:38.55gn00biebrlcad: my budget constrains me to 15yo and lesser taliskers (and most whiskies for that matter) - so whatever I am saying is based in that temporal space ;)
04:39.12brlcadgn00bie: have you tried balvenie?
04:39.23gn00bieTheRedBaron: well, DoDa comes in under a week, Valumzie shows her stuff from backlog, I am D.E.A.D.
04:39.32brlcadshould give the 12 year a try, I love that flavor
04:40.06gn00biebrlcad: I have had balvenie doublewood 12yo and a 15yo french reserve or something
04:40.13gn00biedecent speysiders, better than macallan for sure
04:41.12gn00bieTheRedBaron: But, I don't want to push my chips forward and go out and meet something I don't understand. A man would have to put his soul at hazard. He'd have to say, "O.K., I'll be part of this world."
04:41.29gn00biesomething I don't understand = interaction between DoDa and Valumzie
04:41.47TheRedBarongn00bie: i was surprised too :)
04:41.49gn00biebrlcad: we have to get TheRedBaron up to speed here
04:42.04Valumzieyou guys are so weird...
04:42.12TheRedBaronI think is their common "suffering" that made them friends so fast :P
04:42.25Valumziewe are both Europeans!
04:42.29Valumzieand short :D
04:42.31Valumzieand very cute
04:42.35Valumzieand lot of fun :D
04:42.45brlcadTheRedBaron: there's no suffering here ;)
04:42.48gn00bieTheRedBaron: I do not fully understand how vertically challenged carbon based lifeforms bond with each other, there might have been something because of that
04:43.02brlcadValumzie: TheRedBaron doesn't look very short..
04:43.07brlcadnow you on the other hand.. :)
04:43.14gn00biebrlcad: no, but my DoDa is very short
04:43.23gn00bieok I did not say short, vertically challenged
04:43.34brlcaddifferent "we", got it
04:43.34gn00bieDoDa = director of domestic affairs
04:43.48gn00bieDoDa != Department of Defence affairs
04:43.56Valumziethats why my motto is: the shortest, the cutest - cause more cuteness stored in a smaller area :)
04:44.38gn00bieValumzie: my motto is : I am tall, dark, and handsome (2/3 ain't bad)
04:44.49brlcadValumzie: that's a great motto ;)
04:45.30gn00biewhere is orange the egg?
04:45.43gn00bieorange: stand and deliver (a speech) or the devil he may take ya
04:47.37TheRedBaronmv orange /dev/juicer
04:48.27gn00biewell, in this case, devil = /dev/juicer
04:48.48gn00biebrlcad: so, any progress with the hairdresser?
04:49.14brlcadI've not needed a haircut yet, so no :)
04:49.21gn00biewith your knowledge of scotch, I know I would fall for you
04:49.29gn00biethough I highly doubt you would want that ;P
04:49.44brlcadI highly doubt that too :)
04:52.01gn00biemy cuteness is highly questionable to non-existent
04:52.36TheRedBarongn00bie: alas - i cannot vouch for you cuteness
04:52.43TheRedBaronyour genius however - is undeniable
04:52.55brlcadis unabashedly cute per Valumzie's motto
04:53.11TheRedBaronwell then in that case...
04:53.17TheRedBaronsends brlcad back to the hairdresser
04:53.40gn00biebrlcad: are you vertically challenged?
04:53.48brlcadgn00bie: no, I'm just short ;)
04:53.57gn00bieTheRedBaron: you can vouch for my non-cuteness :)
04:54.32Valumzieshort is good :)
04:54.34gn00biebrlcad: short is a prejorative term, much like the n word
04:54.41gn00bieillegal mexicans = undocumented americans
04:54.51gn00bieshort people = vertically challenged folks
04:54.53gn00bieetc etc
04:55.02gn00biehillbillies = applachian americans
04:55.42gn00bieto quote kabir - bada hua to kya hua, jaise ped khajur, panchi ko chayya nahi, fal lage ati door
04:56.04TheRedBarongesundheit ?
04:56.15gn00bieso what if you are tall, like a date palm, birds cannot nest in you, and your fruit is too far away to be picked easily
04:57.02gn00bieto quote ancient sanskit text - namanti gunina jana, namanti falino vriksha, shush vrikshascha murkascha na namanti kadachana
04:57.09brlcadgn00bie: ah, screw that -- being "politically correct" has never been my cup of tea
04:57.57gn00biethe men with good qualities are polite, the tree with a lot of fruit is willing to bend and bow down, the dead dry tree and the idiot do not bow down in front of others
04:58.10brlcadxkcd put it rather nicely,
04:58.12gn00biebrlcad: or your dram of whisky?
04:59.44TheRedBaronbrlcad: do you like to read?
04:59.53brlcadTheRedBaron: absolutely
05:00.40brlcadtry to read at least one research paper a week
05:01.04gn00bieI think about writing a paper a month
05:01.16brlcadi'm apparently a book whore too, lots of text books
05:01.25gn00biebut usually a quick email to coworkers with the essential details is all that tends to happen
05:01.40brlcadgn00bie: oh, I think about that every couple days, if not several times a day
05:01.49brlcadgoes with the work
05:02.10TheRedBaronI used to be a prolific reader
05:02.24TheRedBaronthen I got into computers ;)
05:02.53TheRedBaronyet still - whenever I walk into a bookstore - I always end up coming out with at least 3 books :)
05:03.33TheRedBaronI acquired my first library card at 6 years old - and I've worn it out. Yet I still have it :D
05:03.40gn00bieTheRedBaron: I feel sorry for you unilinguist people,
05:03.59brlcadTheRedBaron: I have problems borrowing from the library ..
05:04.06brlcadI tend to not bring the books back :)
05:04.14TheRedBarongn00bie: oh?
05:04.57TheRedBaronI feel mildly ashamed for only knowing one language - but not self-pity :)
05:05.15gn00bieTheRedBaron: there is just so much more literature out there that you will never read
05:05.40TheRedBarontranslations :D
05:05.55gn00bieI am fluent in two languages, barely passable in two others, I cannot imagine speaking and understanding just one language
05:06.30TheRedBaronbut even then - I just recently discovered that the english version of my favorite childhood book "Count of Monte Cristo" is an abridged version :(
05:06.59TheRedBarononly a few years back did a publisher go back and re-translate it from the original french and republish it
05:07.06gn00bieoh everything gets lost in translation
05:07.19gn00biecount of monte cristo is not a book, it is a freaking tome!
05:07.53TheRedBaronyup - 1200 pages of rich glory
05:08.40TheRedBaronand little do people know - is that the three musketeers is only the first book in a trilogy :(
05:10.02gn00bieTheRedBaron: you should learn french now that you have a french speaking wife
05:11.19TheRedBaroni should.  I should also learn spanish, seeing as my mom speaks it fluently along with a large part of my extended family
05:12.03gn00biewell, a large part of your extended family also speaks french
05:12.22gn00biefrom your mom's side, I encourage you to scream more when you are in the GTO :P
05:12.23Valumzieoh, I read the Count of Monte Cristo in French over the Summer; that was AWESOME!
05:12.41ValumzieIm planning on read the Three Musketeers next :)
05:13.11TheRedBarongn00bie: I was shocked and floored when I discovered that my Valumzie, a native french speaker and A masters in public history, had never read any of the works by Sir Alexander Dumas
05:13.14gn00biethough to be fair to you TheRedBaron - there was no tailout stuff when you were in the car, just not familiar enough with the lay of land to try stuff like that
05:13.39gn00bieTheRedBaron: that is precisely why I asked Valumzie's mom - what did you pay TheRedBaron? :P
05:14.03ValumzieThey made me read a lot of other French authors in school...
05:14.15gn00bieTheRedBaron: though let me put it out there, Dumas is overrated, at least in english
05:14.23Valumzieyet, my own father was also depressed when he heard the news about The Count of Monte Cristo
05:14.30TheRedBaron~lart gn00bie
05:14.30purlpries gn00bie's back open with a screwdriver and flashes a new bootldr to gn00bie
05:14.54TheRedBaronsends gn00bie back to read the Count of Monte Cristo.
05:15.01gn00bieTheRedBaron: I take it from the lart that you got $0, i.e. you got snookered? :P
05:15.09TheRedBaronValumzie: did they make you read any Rousseau ?
05:15.24TheRedBarongn00bie: i did :(
05:15.37gn00bieTheRedBaron: well, ermm.. sorry to hear that
05:15.43gn00bie~console TheRedBaron
05:15.44purlACTION gives TheRedBaron the consolation moose
05:15.49TheRedBarongn00bie: have you read the short story, "The most Dangerous Game" ?
05:16.02gn00bieTheRedBaron: nope, cannot say I have
05:16.32gn00bieremember, english is my second or third language!
05:17.47gn00bieTheRedBaron: ah thanks, I need to read up on a lot of american fiction
05:18.22TheRedBaronsadly or not - I only read fiction while a teenager.  But I had a strict rule.  No works of fiction less then 50 years old :P
05:18.33gn00bieI intend to read Faulkner at some point
05:18.53ValumzieFaulkner is real tough to read
05:18.56Valumziebut amazing
05:19.02gn00bieoh there are some pretty good works in the last 50 years, no country for old men, fight club,
05:19.24TheRedBarongn00bie: have you read the works of Mark Twain?
05:19.38gn00bieone disadvantage of going to an engineering only school, everyone either reads SF, or porn
05:20.00gn00bieTheRedBaron: tom sawyer and huckelberry finn yes, but there is a lot of twain that I have not read
05:20.25gn00bieTheRedBaron: when you come up to CT, the birthplace of Twain is a couple of hours away
05:20.43TheRedBarongn00bie: you need to read: Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court.
05:21.08TheRedBaronits a 'light' read but has all the acerbic wit of Twain :)
05:21.32gn00bietwain  is dead but he is still funny
05:21.58gn00bieTheRedBaron: another good book from the last 50 years - a clockwork orange
05:22.09TheRedBaronthat book has my favorite quote. "Dictatorship is the best form of government when in the right hands - My hands"
05:23.23gn00biemy favourite quote is not in english
05:25.18TheRedBaronwe lost brlcad
05:25.56gn00bieyeah, I think we lost him when we mentioned the hairdresser
05:26.36TheRedBarongn00bie: I did make exceptions to my 50 year rule.  examples being George Orwell, Fahrenheit 451, etc.  Alot of political books.
05:27.16gn00bieTheRedBaron: orwell is good, Fahrenheit is good
05:27.41brlcadsips a glass of aberlour 16 quietly
05:27.48gn00bieoh snap
05:27.59gn00biegoes to pour Ardbeg 10yo
05:28.06TheRedBaronEver read: 'The Giver' by lowis lowry ?
05:29.01TheRedBaronor any works by C.S Lewis?
05:29.16gn00biebrlcad: cheers ( though I prefer the abunadh over the 16yo)
05:29.47gn00bieTheRedBaron: the lowis lowry similar to CS Lewis?
05:32.22TheRedBarongn00bie: nope
05:33.59gn00bieTheRedBaron: like I said, the scope of literature in a engineering only school is fairly limited :P
05:34.45TheRedBaronEdger Allen Poe ?
05:36.03TheRedBaronOscar Wilde ?
05:36.06gn00bieno, not really, think And Quiet flows the Don (Mikhail Sholokov), Arthur C Clarke (pretty much all), Issac Asimov, etc
05:36.19gn00bieOscar wilde - only the collected short stories
05:37.25gn00bieare you going to put a for sale sign on me now
05:37.28TheRedBarongn00bie: Read Jack London's "Sea Wolf"
05:37.36TheRedBaronThats one of my favorite Books.
05:38.05gn00bietell you what, I will hit Barnes and Nobles with 100 bucks
05:38.08gn00bieyou give me a list
05:40.01TheRedBarongn00bie: let me know what you feel like reading :)
05:40.36gn00biewill do, probably after DoDa comes back ;)
05:43.08TheRedBaronif you like Science fiction - look up Eric Nylund :)
05:43.28TheRedBaronSignal to noise, Signal Shattered, and Game of Universe :)
05:44.02TheRedBaronhis other works are ok.
05:44.14gn00bieEric Nylund, lemme google
05:44.16TheRedBaronbut those three are an excellent read
05:44.36gn00bieah a young whippersnapper
05:44.39gn00bielike you
05:45.10gn00bieoh no
05:45.17gn00biehe is employed by the dark side
05:46.50TheRedBarononly for the halo series - these works are pre-employment :P
05:47.18TheRedBaronand 1964? he is not a young whippersnapper like me :P
05:48.55gn00bieTheRedBaron: compared to say Arthur C Clarke or Asimov (me) he is a whippersnapper (you)
05:49.02TheRedBaronor verne
05:49.21TheRedBaronor H.G. Wells
05:49.41TheRedBaronPlease tell me you know Verne and H.G. Wells
05:49.53gn00bieread all of Verne I think
05:50.05TheRedBaronand Wells?
05:50.09gn00bie20,000 leagues under the sea, journey to the center of the earth, etc
05:50.15gn00biewells read most of him
05:50.55TheRedBaronhis Time Machine and The Invisible Man are my favorites works from him.
05:51.19gn00bieI think I might have only read the abridged version of the invisible man IIRC
05:51.45gn00biethe time machine was pretty darn good, with the Elois and the Morlocks (IIRC)
05:52.59gn00bieif I had told you no to Verne and Wells, would you have ebayed me? :P
05:54.21TheRedBaronin a heartbeat
05:54.54gn00biewell, Valumzie does not no dumas, and if I did not know verne, that would have been the end of the world as  we know it
05:55.11ValumzieI do Dumas now ;)
05:55.58TheRedBarongn00bie: kierra & co have my C.S Signature classics :(
05:56.08TheRedBaronalthough they claim innocence
05:56.29gn00bieTheRedBaron: well, there is also a t-shirt that kierra and co. refuse to give up, right?
05:56.57TheRedBaroncomfiest shirt ever :(
05:58.26gn00biekierra runs atihgt shp though, I think that shirt is gone forever
05:58.55TheRedBarongn00bie: yes - i gave up hope on recovering that shirt :(
05:59.51gn00bieTheRedBaron: you could try and get rb2/3 to go on a dangerous recovery mission, but it may be in a landfill already
06:00.21gn00biethe worrying part is that kierra never confessed to the cold blooded elimination of a perfectly good shirt
06:00.43TheRedBaronthat is the worrying part
06:02.13gn00bienext time I get a chance, I will torture kierra in the car and see if she fesses up then
06:02.58ValumzieI remember my mother telling me I must have misplaced those things I liked and she hated....
06:03.44gn00bieValumzie: I am open to putting your mother in the car and scaring her too
06:03.49gn00biewill she get scared?
06:04.07Valumzieoh, she will!
06:04.11Valumziefaster than kierra
06:04.33gn00bieValumzie: oooooh, I did not know that
06:04.42Valumzieoh yes
06:04.59gn00biethough to be fair to kierra  - there was a lot of tail out stuff and she was screaming for a good reason
06:05.18TheRedBarongn00bie: the sad part is (about the book) is I keep looking in my house, in hopes of finding it.  But my house is not very big (as you have seen it) and I have yet to find it :(
06:05.19gn00biesee you should not have hidden your mom from me!
06:05.33gn00bieTheRedBaron: sometimes things just grow legs and walk
06:05.35Valumziegn00bie: she is still here until Saturday
06:05.42Valumziethen going close to Baltimore for two days
06:06.05gn00bieValumzie: maybe next time, I am in deep getting ready for DoDa mode
06:06.30ValumzieI kind of new I was safe ;)
06:06.49gn00biemaybe I do not even have to drive to scare her, maybe you can drive and scare her
06:07.22gn00biethough the GTO is a very different (and heavier) beast than your honda, just a much more meatier car, for good or for wrose
06:07.34TheRedBarongn00bie: 4 cylinders, 1.6L - very hard to scare people with :(
06:07.38Valumziegn00bie: I scared her today
06:07.43Valumziewith my dad rental car :P
06:08.30gn00bieTheRedBaron: the corners is where you can scare people with 1.6L
06:08.42TheRedBaroneven with FWD ?
06:08.58gn00bieValumzie: ooh, I sense a definite chance to recover your lost stuff, if a rental car scares her
06:09.08gn00biewe may even be able to do in just a straight line
06:09.33Valumziegn00bie: I am not joking when I say she is easily scared :)
06:09.44Valumzieshe is not a driver, so I think it makes things even funnier :)
06:11.09gn00bieoh I forgot that, you told me she does not even have a license
06:11.16gn00biethat makes it easy
06:11.26Valumzieyup :)
06:11.32gn00bienext time, please give me a 10 day advance notice
06:11.41gn00bieman, I should have scared her at your wedding
06:11.57gn00bieit is very seldom that you meet such easy to scare people
06:12.16gn00bieDoDa has also done maybe 50 miles of driving in her life, but she does not scream (much), she just prays
06:12.29gn00bieover an year of living with me, she is used to living dangerously
06:13.39Valumziesee, thats why I love DoDa :P
06:17.41gn00bieshe has lived her life in downtown naples, not much sense is driving there
06:18.08Valumzievery true
06:19.13Valumzieshe should also be used to italian driving
06:19.17Valumziewhich is pretty scary
06:22.15gn00bieoh she has driven just enough to get her license
06:22.33gn00bieand that is it, I tried to get her to drive the automatic corolla, and she did OK because it was auto
06:22.46gn00bieshe does not even try to drive a manual trans
06:23.54gn00bieand she turned 33 in October, imagine that :P
06:24.07gn00biein many ways my doda is like your mom (she is also blonde)
06:24.15Valumzienow now gn00bie
06:24.18Valumziebe nice to DoDa
06:24.49ValumzieI do love my mom; but I have asked TRB to hit me real hard the day I become too much like her...
06:25.08gn00bieI think I need to put your mom in the gn00bie scare-o-meter first
06:25.12gn00biethen we shall see :P
06:25.25gn00bieI don't remember how tall your mom is
06:25.42Valumziea lil taller than me
06:25.54Valumzieprobably 3 centimeters taller than me
06:25.56Valumziesomething like that
06:26.06gn00bieah ok, then my DoDa is safe, she is a little shorter than you and hence not like your mom
06:26.38ValumzieI am very relieved :)
06:27.41gn00bieever since I have had the orange car, DoDa has only been here for 20 days
06:27.50gn00bieso I have yet not had a chance to properly scare her
06:29.00Valumziecant wait for the Spring :)
06:29.41gn00biewell, to be honest I cannot either
06:29.49gn00bie6 weeks of winter weather is enough
06:32.46gn00biethere has been 33 inches of snow so far in the year
06:33.15Valumzievery nice :)
06:33.16gn00bieI take that back, 62.5 inches
06:33.30gn00biethat is more snow than you or my DoDa!
06:34.14gn00bie33 inches is in the last 4 days
06:34.37TheRedBaronheads to bed
06:36.29gn00bieputs TheRedBaron on the north pole
06:36.33gn00biesanta probably needs help
06:36.55Valumzienite nite gn00bie :)

15:30.24CBGThe concoction of antibiotics, etc they gave him in hospital via a drip meant he was good enough to come hom and take the same stuff in tablets for a week
15:30.34CBGthere wasn't one that I am aware of
15:30.43CBGjust that the drugs worked so they sent him home...
15:30.54kierrahow long was he in the hosp?
