I bet you had a magical time there. The jet lag is a killer. How long were you there?

Hello jukejuke! Welcome

Hi Q! Just wanted to say that I like your new avatar too
I don't know what it is.. but it makes you look more "human" to me. LOL, not saying that you're not a human!! Just, it gives off human vibes. I don't know if that makes sense. Sometimes I shouldn't speak, and this is probably one of those times. LOL.

Oooh, another! Welcome to our little abode!

"Everyone is complaining and I remind them of how they complain when it's cold...um..."
I am one person who will NEVER complain about the cold

I whinge and whinge and whiiiiiiine loudly and very vocally about the heat though LOL.



a reply to: Martin75 again! Hehe!
OMG! That avatar! Hahahaha
Nice work Gordi!

Good morning everyone!
Sorry I didn't pop in yesterday... I was... dead-tired. The whole walk to my son's daycare felt like a dream (not entirely unusual for me, but, worse than normal), and all I wanted to do was sleep all day. (I didn't. Just kinda hung around in a staring BLEH state.)

That's what I get for trying to change up my sleeping routine a bit LOL. So. After yesterday's woe, I decided to give up.



I'll be around on and off

*hugs to all*
*goes to make a nice warm caffeinated beverage*


edit to add:
A shameless promotion
LOL. I shared a bit of that story I was talking about with Miss Night a few days ago - HERE!!! if you wanted to have a looksie

Two weeks in three cities: Prague, Vienna, and Budapest, my favorite. I tore my meniscus ( a piece of cartilage) in my right knee before we left, so I used a cane and brace the entire time, so it was kind of tough going! Now I get to have surgery. :-) But I'm glad I didn't bail.

Notes for travelers;

1. Heathrow is the pits for security. Really long lines and multiple stops. SeaTac (Seattle) was easy and quick both ways. No significant lines and customs was a breeze with very friendly agents. You can check yourself in with kiosks these days and nobody seemed to care what we brought back.

2. Everyone everywhere speaks passable English. English is everywhere, on billboards, street signs, menus, advertisements. Lots of shops accept dollars and Euros. (Hungary and Czech Republic still have their own currencies and have not converted to the Euro. Czech Coruna is about 24 per $1,00. Hungarian Forint is about 277 per $1.00. Euro is about $1.12.)

3. Infrastructure in Hungary and the Czech Republic is thoroughly modern in every respect. I expected this in Austria, but was surprised at the other two. Although wages in Hungary are low, the place looks quite prosperous. Architecture is fabulous.

Hi guys.
It's just me. Trying to remember a term that I heard the other day - a very regularly used idiom (and I think it was regarding baseball?) that I suddenly figured out its origin.


Like when you serendipitously come to find out (learn) the reason "three sheets to the wind" means what it means, and where it came from.... (a sailing term).....


dang.....so frustrating!!!!!!!!


Anybody got any ideas about some well-known idiom but we don't think about how it originated?

ack.

I am not sure. I know to throw a curve ball is to surprise someone with something that’s unpleasant to deal with.

So I have a little window on my desktop that plays a slideshow of all my pictures. As soon as my desktop “woke up” this appeared. All right all right, I’m headed to The Shed. LOL Now my computer is reminding me when I have been away too long.

Slightly confused…nothing new…so you NEED one? Like “Bite the bullet” because you bit down on something when doing something painful before anesthesia….

Any of these?
Hit a home run – to be very successful
A ball park figure – an estimate
Strike out – to fail
Batting a thousand – maintaining a perfect record
Play hardball – use extreme measures to ensure success
Go to bat for someone – to aid or support someone
Throw a curve ball – to do something unexpected
Touch base – to communicate briefly with someone
To have two strikes – to have the odds against you
On the ball – very aware, responsible, and intelligent

OMG the touch base one totally got me. I NEVER would have linked that to baseball but makes total sense!!!!
