  • Thinking of you all

    Just wanted to extend my thoughts and prayers to all our Clan brother and sisters that live in the Florida area. I know Avenger is there and sure there are more. You all will be thought of a lot this coming weekend. BE SAFE!!!

    Re: Thinking of you all

    Yes I too am thinking of the Florida residents. Be safe, no surfing now, and let's hope the hurricane breaks up a little before it lands.

    Avenger keep the lambs safe.

      I'm here safe inside our house (which is well inland). All the windows are covered with steel shutters.

      Looks like we're not going to get the worst of it.

      Thanks for the thoughts.

        Hey all.

        Well, Hurricane Frances has moved on. We had a weekend inside the house as the wind howled, the rain fell, and we were a bit bored. Otherwise everything's fine... as long as Hurricane Ivan doesn't decide to hit us next week!

        Thanks for the kind thoughts.

        Earthquakes, drinking to excess, the whiners and other random thoughts.
        by Fat Pang
        As I sit here at work on a wet and windy Saturday morn, feeling a little groggy after being 'ambushed' at the pub last night by a well meaning and well funded association of poisoners, I just thought that I would share a few seemingly random thoughts with my colleagues at the clan.

        The groggy feeling has been compounded by my recent consumption of a traditional Chinese breakfast. Cheung fan (rolled rice dumplings) cloaked in chilli sauce along with fried noodles and Siu mai (fish balls), isn't exactly the 'breakfast of champions' (First time I heard that phrase it was upon being presented with a pint of Guiness by a smiling barman in Dublin at about 10.30am after an extended bout of boozing the night before), but at least it had the effect of clearing the sinuses. Breathing is rarely something that I focus on in particular, but I've got cause to regret it this morning as my increasing age makes it's presence felt by the depth of my hangover.

        Self inflicted pain is the very worst kind.

        It's strange how you can fool yourself into thinking that the consumption of rice dumplings, chilli and fish balls could in any way have a palliative effect, but that's the kind of situation I find myself in this morning. As I write these words, the red and green chinese characters that underpin the slightly more familiar roman ones on my keyboard are glaring at me and making it increasingly difficult to focus on the task at hand, nevertheless I shall soldier on.

        Self pity is also the very worst kind.

        I'm also anticipating a meeting with the PTA of a Hong Kong primary school where I shall be expected to hold court upon the benefits of various courses that I shall be recommending to their school. Not an especially onerous task you understand but one which will require more thought and self possession than I am currently able to muster. It's at this point that I take comfort in the fact that I'm a situationally motivated person and that crisis will provide me with the juice of inspiration. I'm probably just bulls****ing myself however.

        The ground feels as if it's still shaking which is never a great indication of sound mental or physical health, but I'm persuading myself (Again, probably incorrectly) that it's merely the residual echo of the earthquake that registered 3.5 on the richter scale a couple of nights back. 3.5 I'm reliably informed, is a 'tiddler' in quake terms, but being British and from a land that Tacitus once famously observed as being 'worth the conquest' because of the fact that it's weather was mild, there was virtually no wildlife that could kill you and was full of tin and gold, it was a singularly scary event.

        Those who live in the Bay area of course would scoff at my concern. My brother in fact, who lives nowhere near the Bay area (He is actually a policeman in the UK......not one of those village people types that you might find in the Bay area,...

        Just a few thoughts to ponder.
        by HUbison
        I planted some bird seed. A bird camp up. Now I don't know what to feed it.

        I had amnesia once - maybe twice.

        Photons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.

        I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

        If the world was a logical place, men would ride horses sidesaddle.

        What if there were no hypothetical questions?

        One nice thing about egotists... they don't talk about other people.

        What was the greatest thing before sliced bread?

        The high cost of living hasn't affected its popularity.

        How can there be self-help "groups"?

        Is there another word for synonym?

        The speed of time is one second per second.

        Is Marx's tomb a communist plot?

        It's not an optical illusion. It just looks like one.

        We went through a very serious series of storms in this part of the country today and I am doing my best to keep up with the site and the articles.

        My power has been going in and out after a HUGE hail hit storm this morning, producing SOFTBALL (yes softball) size hail. Now this evening several tornados, high winds, lighting and 5 inches of rain just moved through. We have tons of damage to our home and one of my vehicles is a total loss.

        We are all safe, but pretty shaken up. Our little town took a beating. I will post pics when I can. Bear with me I am trying to keep up with all the news
