You're OK.

"Couple is a singular noun. It is, however, also a collective noun, and these creatures will sometimes find themselves paired with a plural verb, and sometimes with a singular one." Merriam Webster

Your report of a winter storm alarmed me, so I rushed to the local weather report. Nothing here, except a slight chance for a wintry mix of precip and patchy fog (their code words for nasty) tonight. 50's, even up to 60's for the rest of the week.

I'm really sorry, because I know misery loves company, but I just can't join in with your pain today.

Mountain Kittys are Da Bomb!

Beautiful creatures.

Don't want to play with one, though!

They would carry my dead body off and eat me in the woods!

I like Bob Cats too! So elusive. I've only seen a couple of Bob's in my lifetime. Never saw a puma/cougar/mountain lion for real in my lifetime.

Interesting video, because I had always heard that the big cats don't (can't?) purr.

"Tigers Can't Purr....Of all the big wild cats, only cheetahs can purr. That's because lions, tigers, jaguars, and leopards have a larynx bone is flexible, though they do make many other noises to show they're happy."

And then I found this:

"Cougars—also called mountain lions, pumas, and panthers—are not classified as big cats because they can't roar; they can only purr."

Learn something new every day.

But I beg to differ about the roaring part...seems to me the cougars on this thread are perfectly capable of roaring if the occasion calls for it.

There's only a couple inches on the ground but the wind is howling. Luckily, Rich went and stocked up on chicken food yesterday and the barn is full of hay, so nobody's hurting, we're just all cold. BRRRRRRRR!
Tell Sugar she needs to get her rear end over the CT and then we can all spend time with her. Stop being so stingy!

Geesh!

I got to entice EVERYONE around here.

I refuse to believe you are talking about Cuz and I.



And, a mountain lion is big enough cat for me!

Yikes!

There have been a couple of reports of Pumas around here in the last few years. Where are they supposed to go with all the progress going on?

Guess Oklahoma is the place to be!

And! We have chicken!

Been thinking that over--inches is plural--so I went back to Merriam Webster.

Couple is now understood primarily to refer to two when used as a bare noun ("they make a nice couple"), but is often used to refer to a small indeterminate of two or more when used in the phrase a couple of ("I had a couple of cups of coffee and now I can't sleep.").


So, a new ruling on the matter:

Since you went on to say "inches of snow" and inches is plural...your should have used "are".

So you're not OK after all. But we knew that the moment you made your first post here on the CT.

Hey Scotty!

Is she using Charmin or a cheap brand of TP to wipe your butt?

Nosy minds need to know!

OH, and I do like whole yolks in my eggs...give me sunny side up or soft poached eggs on toast, hash browns or corned beef anytime. I prefer to break the yolks myself right when I mix it all together. It gives me a sense of POWER over my world.

Which I need to have shored up after ineffectually dealing with you incorrigible folks here.

And Beau hopes Scott woke up this morning...to bacon & eggs, served in bed.
- bacon crispy nice & honey on his perfectly buttered toast // with fresh squeezed OJ
- fried eggs with good duty, DO NOT BREAK Yoke
- or start over girl & Hoss can have the egg rejects...and everybody Wins

Remember...
- such good Men need much & constant attention, after surgery / recovery takes months
- so be fully prepared LDi...rare Men have standards
- you can Thank wise Papa later
Why are we sending Scotty messages delivered by Cuz?

Shouldn't he already be exercising his useless arm? No pain no gain?

People are so wimpy these days.

I can't say what I wanted to really say. I actually filtered myself!



"They" had me walking the hallways right after appendix surgery, 30 years ago.

And since I debated using "ineffectual" vs "ineffective" I looked it up.

"As adjectives the difference between ineffectual and ineffective is that ineffectual is unable or insufficient to produce effect--futile; while ineffective is not having the desired effect..."

It seems that ineffective is used more often when a particular effort didn't resolve a particular problem, whereas "ineffectual" refers to an ongoing effort.** You guys are definitely ongoing problems, and my efforts do seem to be futile here...

** For a more complete discussion of the issue, see https://thebettereditor.wordpress.co...y-ineffective/
But since I know you guys aren't necessarily up to wading through the verbiage THIS EARLY IN THE MORNING, I'll quote the relevant part:

"ineffectual refers to a general or habitual lack of success in the carrying out of one’s projects; ineffective refers to a specific or definite failure to perform a task or accomplish a purpose"

Though actually later on in the article, the author states:
If something (or someone) fails because of its physical properties, or unanticipated events, or some other reason not due to human incompetence, it is ineffective. If a person fails because they aren’t up to the task, or aren’t willing to take the appropriate steps, or because their character prevents from them succeeding, they’re ineffectual.

I guess I identify too much with my work...my efforts are ME.

Forget my comment (I've actually erased its content from the CT's log)...I'm not on my game today.

Thanks to for watching my 6

Remember - Scott is still under the influence of a prescribed narcotics regimen...

Diane (LaDi) , can easily extract either the truth or contrarily, "misstatements" from her spouse...

(BTW- Did you get him to sign-off on your zTrak mower, yet?)

And then I found this:

"Cougars—also called mountain lions, pumas, and panthers—are not classified as big cats because they can't roar; they can only purr."

Learn something new every day.

But I beg to differ about the roaring part...seems to me the cougars on this thread are perfectly capable of roaring if the occasion calls for it.
I am a cat fan--big cats, little cats, wild cats, tame cats and I must have run into the thing about big cats not being able to purr so it was a pleasant surprise when I was watching a PBS special on cats and they showed a clip of a mom puma (cougar/mountain lion--whatever you call them locally) purring (loudly) while nursing a couple of kittens.

Purr on big kitties...
