You are too good to me ECIN!

I am deleting a good number of them. Am already down to about 1,500. I should have a glass of wine and I would probably get through them faster, lol

melbrod Stinker Kenny...I'm gathering you don't like my dissertations?

The meds kicked in last night when I started them, but I was told to take another dose this morning just to be thorough. My test is at 2:00 this afternoon, so I'll be all done complaining by then. About the prep, that is.

AND-D-D-D....another follow up from me about that:

In medieval medicine
"The Christian Doctrine of Signature said that God would provide some kind of relief for every disease, and that each substance had a signature which indicated how effective it might be.

For this reason, they used seeds that looked like miniature skulls, such as the skullcap, to treat headache, for example."
Newsletter, Medical News Today


So I'm thinking that if Dog Roses have thorns that look like dog teeth, they may have been considered something you could treat a dog bite with.

BeauBear?

I love riding around in golf carts with beer aboard! Does that qualify as golfing?

illegal street drag racing

SP - now your talking, Beau use to have a heavy foot.
- I had my share of road racing and one good road rage

a) Blew a friends '67 Camaro off, 25 years ago with my '70 Judge RAM Air III 4 speed...not even a match

Buried the needle on my '87 TransAm GTA with factory Vette motor...that was fun
- another time, blew up the motor racing and oil pump failed...not so good $$

Same GTA - took a 5.0L Mustang, from light to light...easy win.

b) Lady cut Andrew & Dad off, driving into a pool tournament, on a hill.
- I trailed her arse, almost touching her back bumper...for 10 minutes, doing 80 mph
- before cell phones, couldn't do it now / sure pissed her off

c) Hit a white tail deer once, coming home at 3:30 am, from the pool hall...doing just over 100 mph.
- I saw the deer, did a controlled lane change, in a mili-second
- got into city, and parked car under a street lamp
- only Buick car damage was the folded in passenger mirror...and a nasty antler paint scratch, on back
- I was a very skilled driver, when speed was involved

melbrod I always called them wild roses--at least here they seem to grow in various places never touched by man--or least places that haven't had a house built anywhere near them. Some are native here, but roses with their various species are complicated things.

Rosa woodsii. (Woods' Rose)
Rosaceae (Rose Family)

Foothills, montane, subalpine. Woodlands, shrublands, streamsides. Spring.




https://www.swcoloradowildflowers.co...%20woodsii.htm


And here's a little "science" from another website:
"Roses are protected not by thorns, but by prickles. Strictly speaking, a thorn is a sharply pointed modified stem, always subtended by or adjacent to a leaf. A spine is a sharply pointed modified leaf. A prickle is a sharply pointed outgrowth of bark or epidermis. So, these sharply pointed structures differ in their developmental origins, and roses have prickles, not thorns. Prickles sound less threatening than thorns, but from first-hand experience (e.g., seven stitches) I can attest that roses are adequately defended."

I mean, rose thorns are ouchie, and leave long scratches on me, but how in the heck can a rose do enough damage that you need stitches?


Dog roses:
Rosa canina, commonly known as the dog rose, is a wild rose species native to Europe, northwest Africa, and western Asia. (an invasive pest and weed in New Zealand and Australia.)

Another tidbit, good information for a dog forum to have :

It is sometimes considered that the word 'dog' has a disparaging meaning in this context, indicating 'worthless' as compared with cultivated garden roses. According to The Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, the English name is a direct translation of the plant's name from classical Latin, rosa canina, itself a translation of the Greek κυνόροδον ('kunórodon'); the name arose out of the belief in classical times that the root was a cure for the bite of a mad dog. It is known to have been used to treat the bite of rabid dogs in the 18th and 19th centuries. The origin of its name may be related to the hooked prickles on the plant that have resemblance to a dogs canines.

The Roman naturalist Pliny attributed the name dog rose to a belief that the plant's root could cure the bite of a mad dog. It is not clear if the dogs were rabid.

Other old folk names include dogberry and witches' briar.


Can you tell I'm just sitting here waiting for my "meds" to kick in this morning?

LOL--Lilacs are like an invasive weed--they are kind of like dandelions--if, when you are trying to cut them back or dig them up--even a minute piece of root will recover and eventually produce a thriving new plant (or in the case if lilac and new bush).

Anywhere in the middle of the country where winters are cold the two things you can find around old homesteads that haven't been covered with new buildings and cement and asphalt are patches of lilac (usually near where the front or back doors were. And beside the lilac the other thing is the old field rose--the exceedingly thorny ones that come (as far as I ever saw) in red or pink and have only a single batch of petals. They too survive in horrid midwest weather--hot summers and cold winters. My grandfather called them dog roses.

As far as my lilacs go--I cut back all the suckers all spring, summer and fall--I keep the ones that happen to be growing where I want some fill in and after they bloom in the spring I prune back about a third of the bigger plants and lop off all the old bloom stalks. So mine are basically contained.

But down the street there is a full blown hedge that must be close to 30 feet tall and grows inside and outside their perimeter fencing so altogether it must at least 15 feet deep.

But I confess that I'm a total sucker for scented plants of any kind--trees, shrubs, annuals, bulbs and perennials.

And STJ--neither you nor I can spell crocus--I knew it didn't look right and finally looked it up this morning--no 'e' on the end.

I heard about the end of the Daytona race on the radio that I keep tuned to a 'sports' station (there is always hop that they'll eventually be talking about baseball (they are presently still talking about football and who next seasons super players will be for the various teams, and making their way through the end of basketball and just getting to the stepchild of sports these days--but my fav--baseball.

Only got just a snippet (and never succeeded in finding anything on my overtheair sports yesterday at all) that said there had been an in the air accident on the last lap and the driver had been transported to a hospital.

None of the sports news had anything more than that last night.

I'll pass on seeing wrecks like that--they scare the living daylights out of me.

Local weather is supposed to clear (overcast at the moment--evidently its really a fog layer.) by afternoon. Then we are supposed to get a couple of warmer (mid 50's) days accompanied by big drops in overnight temperature (because of wind coming out of the gorge--eastern Oregon is having very cold nights--and temperatures around my neck of the woods were close to freezing last nigh.

Better than snow but I'm more than ready for warm weather and spring.

My doc made me get the colonoscopy because I went in to see her, complaining of pretty bad pain in my groin area...the first thing she did was check my PSA levels in case it was prostate cancer (normal levels, whew), and then she wanted to do a colonoscopy in case it was, well, you know. And yeah, I was sweating it. When I went in for the procedure, I was so worried that my blood pressure was something like 179/100 and they freaked out but I told them I was really nervous about what they may find. They put me under, did the procedure and when I came to and the doc told me I was good for another 10 years, my blood pressure was like 110/55 LOL. To make an already long story even longer, my doc asked me a few pertinent questions, had me get a CT scan and then promptly sent me off to a urologist (who was a female colonel, BTW, how embarrassing! I'll let your imaginations go wild on how that office visit went ha ha) and it turns out I have a prostate the size of a friggin grapefruit* so now I'm taking medication for that and all is well

*Of course it's not the size of a grapefruit, I'm exaggerating...sheesh!
Mister stayed home today. He's sick. Now I am the Nervous Nelly!

He better not be sick enough to require an ambulance or surgery. And, he better not give it to me!

He doesn't have insurance. He says he can't afford it. Guess I am going to have to add him to my health insurance. That's going to take a chunk out of my paycheck.

Had to take my PJ's off and get dressed and go get him OJ and over the counter meds.

Thank God he's going to be OK, but there was NO reason he had to be wiped out. The jackass behind him was trying to "push him to the win?" SERIOUSLY? He was already in front. And then crossed the finish line upside down and on fire, which was completely unnecessary. I actually left after the second big pile-up, when there were only a few laps left, because it was time to go feed the animals and do chores, and by that point, I didn't really care anymore, but when I got back 30 or 40 minutes later, they were STILL RACING, on the final lap, and then that finish-line debacle. I assume they were red-flagged the whole time I was outside.

Oh, and (sheesh, she's not done!) what's the deal with Pit Road being "open" and "closed" during the race? HUH? What if you have something go wrong and need to pit and it's closed? They have it open at the end of each "stage," so everyone can go get fixed up at the same time, like recess in kindergarten? Puleeeze. Anyway, that was my last NASCAR race. I don't understand this "New Racing." I will try to forget it.




Dang, Lannie!

Did you have a little rant there?

I thought it was a cute rant.



02-18-2020 09:43 AM
ECIN Racing 101

Stage racing --- They said ( NASCAR ) that a car can run the whole race and then get crashed near the end = NO POINTS or Lower points at the end - So to try a
and fix that - they went to stages to help reflex reward points more evenly - or something like that - I myself - don't like it ! You race and it is what it is .

The jackass behind him was trying to "push him to the win?" SERIOUSLY

Yep - It's true Lannie ! 2 cars are faster than one - it's all about aerodynamics - the lead car punch's a hole in the air - the trailing car doe's not have to - so the trailer can only run ? Maybe 60 to 70 % of the throttle - the trailer still has that 25% gas to push with = push to win . Blaney did right .

Pit Road being "open" and "closed" during the race? I have never understood that rule either ! Total BS

I didn't really care anymore, but when I got back 30 or 40 minutes later, they were STILL RACING, on the final lap, and then that finish-line debacle. I assume they were red-flagged the whole time I was outside.

2 reasons for this - #1 - safety to get the track cleaned up and 2 , fans pay to see racing , not yellow flag follow the leaded .

Yes - Lannie my friend - things have changed in racing - some for the better - like safety - then other things Not - they make them all run the same aero type package - where back in the day - you just about do anything to your motors with in the rules - not any more - cars could out run others - not with everything equal - or close to it - this is what you get , all the cars running together = better side by side racing according to NASCAR . That why we get the Big one = crashes of 10 to 20 cars at a time .

As far as drivers - oh there still pretty dang good at what they do - Big bad wreaks are always , always going to be there , it's part of the inherited risk running 200 mph .

Before I went to bed I saw that there was a crash last lap

But that is what I have seen this morning as well about his condition. Did not realize he crossed the finish line as well....9th.

Hope all continues to go well for him and he recovers!

melbrod So I'm reading about the violence of the 1840's in a US history book--I found this image irresistible:

"In 1847, one set of bank directors at the Farmers and Merchants Bank in Nashville engaged in a gun battle with other directors outside the courtroom."

Beaumont67 Thoughts and prayers for NASCAR driver Ryan Newman following a brutal, horrific, airborne crash on the final lap at today's Daytona 500 restart race. He has been transported to the hospital and we await news of his condition. I haven't seen a crash like that since Dale Earnhardt died upon impact.

STJ!
You know what SSJ, crocuse grow in the PNW like weeds for everyone except me--I have no idea why. Well maybe it's because they start selling bulbs so early that I buy them, forget to plant them until really late (they should be planted in the fall) so then they don't go dormant the way they should and if they come up at all the following year they are about half the size they should be.

And I don't have any daphne--my next door neighbor did but he thought it was a weed of some sort and yanked it out a couple of years ago--his wife, who loved it almost divorced him over that.

But on the other hand--when the lilacs which grew along the fence line next door got trashed when the house sold to a contractor who stripped it down to the studs (it was a classic old farmhouse) and redid it--the lilac's moved over to my side of the property line and now I have a whole section of fence that is edged in lilac--the leaves are almost ready to be leaves instead of buds and I can see the flower buds working at producing a great show this year.

I love lilacs--they are one of the things that even South Dakota winters can't kill--cold weather just gives them a better flower display every spring.
