Subject:Ebay Photo Thief Alert
Time:06:59 pm
This seller was brought to my attention by Melly of Dentelleetsatin.blogspot.com It appears that the seller is in China and stealing photos from various blogs around the world. One looks like a photo of Very Merry Seamstress and a few others look familiar as well. One I know is from another ebay seller that has been on ebay since the last century.

Please, if you recognize any of the individuals, alert them to this seller.

My prayers are with you right now. Being right outside DC, I know what you are going through right now in Ottawa.

For those that aren't paying attention to the news, up to three gunmen stormed the Canadian Parliament.

Subject:How bad would it be?
Time:02:34 pm
How bad would it be if Yoda's colors were reversed? I bought 3 yards of potting soil brown fleece for both Obi Wan and Yoda's robes - only to figure out that I had Yoda's colors reversed in my head. My nephews all want to go as Star Wars characters. Oldest nephew is going at Luke Skywalker - his jacket will be out of white fleece. Middle Child wants to go as Obi Wan. He'll have a brown knit undertunic, a tan knit tabard thingy, and a brown fleece Jedi robe. Youngest nephew is going as Yoda. Originally, I was going to do a brown fleece Jedi robe with a tan knit tunic that has a green hoodie (with ears!) out of fleece. However, I just looked at all the photos and realized I screwed up the color combo. Okay, granted, youngest is two and doesn't get Halloween yet but should I suck it up and go get more tan fleece to make his robe properly (I have plenty of brown knit for an undertunic) or would it be okay to reverse the colors?

Subject:So a horse walks into a police station...
Time:11:41 am



No, seriously.  It's not a joke.  Apparently, the gate at the farm next door was left open and the horse turned himself in.

Subject:So that's how reindeer fly!
Time:10:27 pm
From http://www.thelocal.no/20141006/radioactive-reindeer-found-in-norway

Almost 30 years after the nuclear plant explosion in Chernobyl, this autumn, more radioactivity has been measured in Norwegian grazing animals than has been noted in many years.
Lavrans Skuterud, a scientist at the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (Statens strålevern), said: “This year is extreme.”

In September, 8200 becquerel per kilo of the radioactive substance Caesium-137 was measured in reindeer from Våga reinlag AS, in Jotunheimen, central Norway.

In comparison, the highest amount at the same place was 1500 becquerel among the reindeer in September 2012.

The research also measured radioactivity in Norwegian sheep this year.

Both in Valdres in southwest Norway and Gudbrandsdalen in southeast Norway, 4500 becquerel per kilo meat from sheep was measured at most.

600 becquerel per kilo is the safe limit allowed for sheep meat to be sold for human consumption.

The Radiation Protection scientist is quite certain about the cause.

Lavrans Skuterud said: “This year, there has been extreme amounts of mushroom. In addition, the mushroom season has lasted for a long time. And the mushroom has grown very high up on the mountains.”
Especially the gypsy mushroom (Cortinarius Caperatus) has been a problem. This is a good food mushroom, both for people and animals. But it has one bad trait: It can absorb a lot of radioactivity.

Skuterud is still surprised by the high levels this year.

He reminds that: “The Chernobyl accident happened in 1986. It is nearly 30 years ago.”

The nuclear reactor of Chernobyl was made to be cheap and effective in its operation, but was regrettably also basically unstable, and one day in spring of 1986, everything went wrong.

Caesium-137 has a physical half-life of 30 years. This means that in two years, half of the radioactive dust that came in over Norway after the dramatic spring night in 1986, will be gone.

Skuterud explained: “The level of [radioactivity] in the environment still decreases faster than this. Some of it is washed out and most of it is bound to the soil. Only a small part of it is in circulation throughout the food chain. When we watch the values in the grazing animals in autumn, it bounces up and down, and it seems to be everlasting. But the winter values in reindeer luckily show a stable decrease.”



So this is why Rudolph's nose is glowing red and radioactive mushrooms help him to fly! :-)

I'm really glad I went. It was cool temp wise, but not cold. I was pretty happy with my houppelande despite having to switch belts three times. The first two broke. I've learned a lesson - don't sneeze!

Clicking on the picture above will take you to that picture's page - in the upper right there should be a link for the album.

Well, I guess we are a few thousand years too late for that one, huh?
