Re: RPresta

R/P, I only drink water when the pill instructions are adamant it must be taken with water.  I've never tried chewing on beans but it sounds kinda gross, but then so does haggis.  You know, better that I do, that women rule this world.

But they are very subtle at letting men think they do.

One could say water’s only an ingredient in coffee if you don’t chew the beans while, or eat them ground... My dad always said coffee counted as water. And we all know ‘Father Knows Best.‘ Uh, unless Mother overrides Pops... You should drink water, even if it’s yucky.

Re: Re: RPresta

I had actually written that in my comment to you, but deleted it! Didn’t want to ramble too much. Post away!

Re: RPresta

I suppose museums and libraries come under that description, but that's not what I meant - and I can feel a post coming on.  Thanks R/P

Re: RPresta

Almost as often as I drink whisky.   Water - is that an ingredient of coffee?

D - It would be nice if there was a knowledge bank where we could

deposit all of our knowledge so it wouldn’t be wasted?

No, but thanks, I’ll not be having any Newcastle for quite a while. Too cold.

D - I rarely drink beer. Once a year, maybe.

I didn’t know it wasn’t a girlie drink! Well, no matter. I don’t have the taste for beer. Gasp. Sounds like you had a fun trip with your buddies, except for the rain - and the Guinness. The sights must have been spectacular, though. Surely you drink water now, too?

Re: Kabu

Emmmm, I think there was a question, Kabu, but i can't remember what it was.   It'll come back to me, maybe.   Thanks for reading,Kabu.

Re: RPresta

I often wonder why, when we kick that bucket away, why it is that our knowledge has to go with us to the grave.   What a waste.   

And, just to add my bit to climate change, I'm going to make sure my knowledge goes up in flames.

Thanks R/P.  Enjoy your Newcastle.

Re: RPresta

You like Newcastle Brown??   Isn't that unusual for a lady - gasp, is that sexist?   The last time I was in Eire and Northern Ireland, was with 4 othe motor cyclist buddies.   It rained solidly for 7 days and every night when we stopped at a motel, we had to drink Guinness.  

As the bartenders used to say 'that's not rain, that's tomorrow's Guinness'   No wonder they all fled to the Americas.

The only thing I drink nowadays is coffee.

I got so interested in reading about the geneology of a blogit member that I forge the questions...were there any....

D - Forgot

You do have a global family. All I can say is my grandkids have a healthy amount of Irish in them. 

Of course, the children are all 'geniuses.' My brother laughs, as well as my sister, because we all have such 'brilliant' kids. Amazing how they know everything! And we know next to nothing. I love it. I was like that once. And now a nod to Bob Dylan: "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."

D - All Four Leaves, huh? More like you own the entire clover field.

And an international family, to boot! I was pretty shocked when the results came in as a bit over a quarter Irish/Scots (I think they just put Wales in there because-well, it's a long story. They using living subjects to determine results and some folks probably floated over to Wales over the centuries.)

Turns out someone in my family was more Emerald-ish than I knew. Or I just got more bingo balls of Irish genes. I've got international relatives also - but more distant. Always hectic, and no, I don't like Guinness either. Maybe there's a gene for that... I rarely drink beer, but when I do, it's Newcastle - like once a year maybe.

Re: RPresta

I think you can group me in the 4th leaf category.  With my last name starting Mc and my Mother's starting O'.    And just to confuse things my grandfather was Scots, American  Father in law Irish Canadian, 

American daughter and 3 American grandchildren, one in the US military and been all over the globe and now lives in Scotland, and the other ex cheerleader, writer now living in England, the 3rd one still figuring things out - of course they are geniuses,

Canadian daughter and Indigenous son in law, 2 Canadian children, the 11 year old already writing novels better than I can.

English cousins, Ausralian cousins and nieces, and American aunts and auncles.  Scottish Cousin who has a BEM.  No Welsh - that I know of, but some travelling showpeople in there somewhere, and who knows what they got up to before moving on to next village.

All gets a bit hectic.

But I've got a confession - I DO NOT like Guinness.

You’ll be guessing correctly about that shamrock, though “they” seem to group Ireland, Scotland and Wales together. The Celtic gene? I’d be one leaf of a four-leaf clover, genetically.

And I’ll no‘ be getting too close ta the Blarney Stone any time soon. Upside down, at that! I might acquire so many words from it, why, I‘d have ta write summat.

Re: RPresta

Yes it's free, R/P.   Now however did I guess there was a shamrock or two in your history?   To be sure, it must have just been pure luck after kissing that blessed stone.   Thanks RPresta.

You’re asking me? LOL. I may be half Italian, but the land of Éire claims my pen as you can see.

I have always marveled at the wonderful world in which we could all live if only we listened to all politicians and politicians-to-be. Mind you, none of us would know just what that world was because of the esoteric BS political speak-talk. Yes, is that university free?

Re: Corbin_Dallas

Only 12 letters?   I thought it would be at least 14.  Cheers Corbin.
