Miss Cellania's Comments

In memorium:

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

-Joyce Kilmer

I thought of Cuckoo's Nest, too. This is a good short film, but it appears to demonize nursing homes. In reality, they are harder to get into than get out of. If a man in that good of physical shape needed to be in a nursing home, he probably has Alzheimers. If he wanted to run, it could be arranged for someone to go with him. Health care facilities encourage physical activity because it seriously keeps residents from dying.

My kids should see this. They are fascinated by dial phones in antique stores. When they first encountered one, they couldn't believe all the trouble we used to go through to make a call.

Don't look at it as an artistic mashup. Look at it as an experiment in minimalism. It's like: I'll show you a picture of a potato, and see if you can guess which Disney princess it is with the least clues. Like Jill said, it's a game.

My husband has worked for trucking companies that had a list of "fines" like this, and you could end up working a week and not making any money at all. But workers just quit rather than fight it, and there's always someone else with no experience who'll take the job for a while.

I said that a couple of times to my tom cat when he responded to my calls to come in at night. Now he expects me to say it every time he comes inside. He gets barely in the door and looks at me until I say it!

There was one family feast when I was a kid where our dog stole an entire ham off the table. I don't think my Mom ever forgave her, but I thought it was funny. She was a much larger dog than this pup!

I used Zener cards in a high school science fair project. My subjects thought they were getting an ESP test, but you'll be glad to hear it was a math project -specifically, statistics. I won first prize, too.

In Kentucky, it varies widely by county, and even within counties. My husband was once arrested for carrying a grocery bag with a 6-pack of beer in it in some area we weren't that familiar with. Then when we applied to adopt, we had to disclose any arrests. No one in the entire hierarchy of bureaucracies we dealt with could believe that was an actual crime.

Good question. It looks green to me.

I have a friend who owns a nursery. In the summer, they empty out their greenhouses, but they still call them "greenhouses."
