Obviously we got the guy cows and the gal cows. Guy cows got dongs and gal cows don't. Sort of like literature, with fiction novels and non-fiction novels. That usage derived from graphic novels and wordless novels. Does it look sort of like a novel or a cow? Good enough. And my partner as a kid thought the singular of 'horse' was 'whore'. "Look at the whore, Mommy!"

Shouldn't that be in the foreign language section?

Anyway, just for you good sir, scones from Granny's cookbook.

One tall black coffee, please, Tex.

Foreign Language section ?
Strewth !
It's not a 'foreign' language: it's a dialect, and a rough one at that.
But no more difficult (it's very contextual) than some of the less fluid dialects of, say, up round Marthas Vineyard or the Deep South.
Huh !

Musical terms are slippery. 'Guitar' is slippery. 'Guitar', based on cittern and gittern, labels a type of European lute, a fretted instrument with strings extending beyond the soundboard, but with a flatter body and different tuning than a classical lute. Still, they're close -- if I retune a guitar, does it become a lute or cittern or whatever?

Many of the devices now called 'guitars' look nothing like classical guitars. Strings and necks range from zero to many. But that steel-guitar zither and no-strings electronic fretboard are still supposedly 'guitars'. And more than a few ethnic instruments from vastly different traditions have adopted guitar-like bodies because easy but they're still known by the traditional names.

Which lands me here+now. Mandolins and their ilk have 4 courses of steel strings tuned in 5ths while 'ukuleles (except electrics and mutants) have 4 courses of nylon strings tuned mainly in 4ths. If I restring a mandolin like an 'uke but with steel strings, does it *become* an 'uke? If I restring a taropatch (8-string) tenor 'uke as a mandola but with nylon strings, does it *become* a mandola? Or do I label all such devices as "small lute-like objects"? Or do I need to get a life?

I think coffee is called for. Oh waiter! Another cuppa, por favor!

H-P, was it not Shaw who referred to the UK and the USA as two countries separated by a common language?

I miss the place, truly.

Originally Oscar Wilde, as with so many good quotes - "We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language." In the short story: The Canterville Ghost, 1887,

[Describing Mrs Otis] - Indeed, in many respects, she was quite English, and was an excellent example of the fact that we have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language.

1942 GEORGE BERNARD SHAW (attributed)
Readers Digest, (November 1942): "England and America are two countries separated by the same language." [unsourced]

Repeated in Treasury of Humorous Quotations (Esar & Bentley), 1954. [also unsourced]

Repeated in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, 1999 p.521, under the heading Misquotations :

OxfordQuotations1

1944 BERTRAND RUSSELL
Saturday Evening Post, (3 June 1944): "It is a misfortune for Anglo-American friendship that the two countries are supposed to have a common language".

1954 DYLAN THOMAS
Quite Early One Morning, (1954)
A collection of essays and stories. In A Visit To America, p.146, European writers and scholars in America were, he said : "up against the barrier of a common language".

Repeated in a radio talk prepared shortly before his death and published after it in The Listener, (April 1954).

1987 WINSTON CHURCHILL (falsely attributed)
The Times, 26 January 1987; The European, 22 November 1991 : "Winston Churchill said our two countries were divided by a common language."

Something along those lines.
I do know that 100 years is a long time in the 'States, while 100 miles is a long distance in the UK.

Coffee, anyone, while I'm pouring ?

Kindof what I was thinking too. If their concept of a blow job has something to do with actual explosives then it doesn't really advertise for the coffee.

On an entirely different note, is it harder to write softcore sex than explicit sex, or is that just me?

So today is three weeks since the surgery. The incision looks great. I feel good. PT is about done but I'll have to continue the stretching exercises. I'm happy.

Brilliant stuff, even without a viol. Yup, Keaton fingered a taropatch, not a tiple. (I couldn't tell what the guy on the right played -- I find it's a rifle, not a viol!) I play some 'Ukulele Ike but hadn't seen him before. Thanks.

Wrong time now, as usual. I'll definitely need some to haul trash in the bitter snow tomorrow.

Too bad the theme from The Addams Family doesn't work on taropatch.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

You've a heat wave there. We're due for 18ºF here in the hills. At this time last year our little RV was parked at my nephew's place near Flagstaff AZ. We kept the heater on all night as the temp dropped to 12ºF. That is, shall we say, a tad nippy for RVing.

I'm now nearing that time in my diurnal cycle. Fix a snack, drink some wine, setup the expresso maker for morning, crawl in bed in time to be up for meds and trash and another fateful day, oh joy. I'll fall asleep dreaming of mandolas.
_____

The mutant quesadillas are toasting. I'm remembering the day. We had to run down to the county seat for necessities and some medical work. As we left the Outpatient door, a peacock strolled along the hospital wall and stood before the door expectantly. A wave of a wing, and the door auto-opened. I guess he decided he didn't need any lab work, so he took off.

Toaster-over bell rang. Snack is toasted. More later.

If I thought I could get some in England, I'd give it a go. But postal things being what they are, I doubt I could get real fresh (as advertised by the company) in sufficient time.

Large black, please. Need to face outdoors too early. As of right now, it's -1F and with wind chill, -15. And we're due for more snow.

Mr Bear, could you give me some hints re hibernating?

We had a skiff of snow overnight--first time this winter. As of 6AM the ski slope had two inches new, but it was snowing up there when I drove into work.

Our local temperature ain't bad at +6C, and the sunlight is at a perfect angle.
Unfortunately, I cannot be many steps from the bathroom, which is upstairs.
So will someone please save me a coffee for tomorrow afternoon ?
