zilch

"nothing," 1966, from earlier sense of "meaningless speech" (1960), originally Mr. Zilch, (1931) comic character in the magazine "Ballyhoo." Perhaps from U.S. college slang (early 1900s) Joe Zilsch "an insignificant person." Probably a nonsense syllable, but Zilch is an actual Ger. surname of Slavic origin.

According to a commercial Dave Chapelle did for Pepsi a couple of years ago, Hamburger was invented by the people of Hamburg who hated cows so much that they ground them up. 

I thought it was kind of a graphic commercial to try to sell a soft drink.

Twd, it's almost as mean to bring up Chik-Fil-A to a displaced Texan as it is to denegrate the pious okra (Never).  Boy do I miss that place.  I think they'd do extremely well up here, too.  The one I worked at in the mall in high school out-profited per sq. foot every other store in the mall...even the diamond store.

You can roast dandelion roots to make a coffee-like drink, and the smaller leaves can be used in salads.  Of course, the best use of dandelions is simply blowing the seeds of a ripe stalk (preferably into a neighbor's yard).

We used to have a contract with them... But, a few years ago, when money started getting tight, we cancelled our service. After cancelling, they kept coming back and trying to bill us. We told them not to come back anymore. One day, after having not seen them in a while, I saw one of their trucks parked in front of my house again. I looked outside and a guy was spraying something on my lawn. I yelled out to him, but he was just finishing up, and quickly packed up and left. Shortly after this happened, the dandelion take over began... Coincidence?

Dandelion comes from French "dent de leon," or lion's tooth, presumably from the shape of the leaves.  But the modern French word for the plant is pissenlit, which means "wet the bed."

Instead of speaking about that, they talk about politics or the weather.  May God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit once again be the theme of our preaching.  When we feel the necessity to speak of other things, may it always be done through the lens of God.

Does she have to say "EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)" every time?  I mean really, what's the point of using an acronym if you're going to say the entire name with it every time?  It's just inefficient and redundant, and wasteful and repetitive...ISTM (it seems to me).

I bought Steelers tickets from a broker once.  Turned out the season ticket holder was selling them because the seats, though very good, were right in the middle of a bunch of abusive drunks.  The abusive drunks themselves told us this.

It was okay, though.  They left at halftime and didn't find their way back to their seats.

I heard someone say once that "the past is history, the future is perfect."

[I think it was a baseball pitcher explaining how he approached the game.  He started every game expecting a no-hitter, if he gave up a hit, then he expectetd a one hit shut out.  He always worked toward making what was left the best it could be.  I have always thought that saying is a good way to look at the past.]

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Four people were baptized at church this morning. ::announcment::

Awesome, we had six baptisms of teenagers who just returned from a week at a youth conference.  The conference focused on the book of Ephesians, and through that 8 came to Christ (1 baptized last week and 1 at another church), many rededicated and the whole group grew!

May their baptisms be the result of true repentance, and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation. May they live their lives in surrender to Him. May the Spirit of the Lord indwell them, guide them, and use them as instruments to bring Him the glory that He deserves...

"Lightening" lighens things up, while "lightning" lights things up for a moment.

But if you use black "lightening" then things won't be "lighened" up, they will be darkened.  Until Lightning lightens them, that is.

Our sheriff died a couple of weeks ago.  He wasn't up for re-election this year, but now the position will have to go on the ballot.  The Democrats nominated the acting sheriff.  The Republicans, only having three party members in the county to choose from, nominated the one who's recently been county party chairman, and who happens to be preaching for us until February, when he's scheduled to go on a mission trip to India.

We asked him last night what he'd do about the mission trip if he's elected, and he said he'd have to cancel.  Then he reminded us that he was a Republican running in Lincoln County, so that wasn't likely something he'd have to worry about.

He estimated that there are 30,000 Democrats and 3,000 republicans in the county.  I think he's off by 2,997 on the Republicans.

Nor do I. But I've never even heard of him before.
Even though I tend to be impatient, I can't keep up with baseball. I used to, but then it would be so frustrating when the last time I watched my favorite team, they be up by 3, then the next time I had a chance to watch a game, they'd be down by 3. And their next game would be when I was at work the next day. Sometimes there's double headers, sometimes there's a game everyday, you just miss too much if you get too busy for just a few days. Football, ahh usually just one game a week, nice and sloooooooowwwww!!!

Man it's hard for me to get off topic if Mr Pitt is it.
The movie is long. It makes me cry.
I think it is more of a chick flick, but if you don't know the ending, it's pretty cool.
I know the beginning, the middle and the end, and I still cry as if it's my first time.
Tonight, right when I ran across it, Mr Black is walking into the room and I said "it's time to go?"  then the dad said that. I thought OK, it's time to go do something else, so I listened to the movie, but fixed my breakfasts and lunches for this week.
My daughter isn't a big fan of Mr Pitt, but she has this movie, too and loves to watch it and cry. I still do it with the movie with him and 2 brothers and the woman that went through all three of them, back in the bootlegging days. I must really be tired if I can't think of the name of that movie!!!

Way back when, a little AM radio station I worked at featured a paid program by a local preacher who never blinked.  He also went weeks at a time without bathing or seemingly changing clothes.  This is the preacher I mentioned on another thread who was a Catholic, but while visiting the Vatican heard a voice that told him the place was full of evil spirits (when I stop and think about it, it may have been that he heard the actual demons--one of the other; it's been too many years), so he left and began his own church.

As of a couple of years ago, he was running his own private school.  I believe he still is.

I once worked Saturdays at an AM/FM station.  The AM was country, and the FM was automated Top-40.  They left me in charge of both, which involved a lot of running back and forth.  I had to tape the news and weather feeds for the FM, and read them live on the AM.  That was a lot more exercise than any other station I worked at.

Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow | a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.

Because on and off,
The clouds have fought
For control over the sky

And lately the weather
Has been so bi-polar
And Consequently so have I

And now I'm sunny with a High
of 75
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light

And it's funny how you find
You enjoy your life
When you're happy to be alive

To grow more loving every day.

The ACLU was going to court against a WV high school that had that picture hanging in its hall.  Then someone stole the picture.

I have suspicions the thief was someone at the school who was trying to avoid an expensive and potentially embarrasing trial.

Yep--church & state.  The school officials seemed embarrased by the whole thing, but that national Christian defense fund thingy was giving them money (and they offered a religious plaque to replace the stolen painting, which the school put up for about an hour, then took down), and, of course, the parents were gung-ho about fighting the ACLU.

I really suspect school officials found another home for the painting.

So is John Hiatt a Cardinals fan?  That would make some sense.  He's from Indy, I think, so he may be a Reds fan.

I looked it up, btw, and the song itself is about his home near the Natchez Trace. I still don't understand the line, though.

At any rate, this song ("Buffalo River Home", for the musically underprivileged) is one of my favorites by Hiatt, who these days probably ranks as my favorite singer/songwriter. I heard it on the radio today, and I've been thinking about that line ever since.

He was great in "The Country Bears", too.

I was walking back from my aunt's house yesterday, and I saw a very small (less than a foot long) copperhead lying by the road.  I watched it for a minute, and it didn't move.  It was about 45 degrees.  Too cold for snakes.  I walked back down today, and the snake was still there. I kicked it a couple of times, and when it didn't move, I picked it up by the tail and tossed it in the creek.

I saw nothing wrong with it, and wonder whether it had been caught out in the cold.  If I had taken it inside, would it have begun moving?

I generally don't like playing with poisonous snakes, btw, but it was very small.

I received unexpected money in the mail today.  I had put in for $50 of unclaimed money from the State Tax Department, having to do with some money I sent Western Union in '96 that was never delivered.  When I got the check, it was for $251.06, and included $1.06 from a "stale check" from the state tax department and $200.00 from Bank One (they don't exist anymore, do they?) in 1990.  I have no idea what that was all about.

I'm going crazy trying to find the name of an artist for an oldies song that was one of my favorites.  I've searched the internet and have come up with nothing.  It was popular in the late 70's or early 80's.  I think it's called "If Love Must Go."

Argghhhhhh!   ::frustrated::  It's driving me bananas not being able to think of the  name.  HELP, ANYONE!???

Here are the lyrics...

Another long and sleepless night, has turned to tears in morning light, used up all the ways to say I'm sorry.
And even though we've loved so much, now we use the words to touch,
Let the love turn into pain.
Once you've opened up that door, you just can't close it anymore.

If love must go, how can I face the world I've built around you?
You took me up on golden wings,
let me feel the gentle thing that love could be.
Oh, the world was you and me.

What will I do? I've used my love on you, there's no more for any other.
And there's no holding back these tears, I'm feeling all the years we'll never come to know, if love must go.

If only we could turn around, and keep it all from fallin' down,
We'd wake up in each other's arms tomorrow.
We can't put it all away, call it just another day, when all we're holding in our arms is sorrow.
When you forget what nights are for, you know it's no good anymore.

If love must go, how can I face the world I built around you?
You took me up on golden wings,
let me feel the gentle thing that love could be.
Oh, the world was you and me.

What will I do, I've used my love on you, there's no more for any other?
And there's no holding back these tears I'm feeling all the years we'll never come to know, if love must go.

That would be Lisa Hartman from the album "Letterock", track #4: "If Love Must Go".
Title: Re: Off Topic

It was a black man with a great voice who recorded it, and I'm sure his name wasn't Lisa Hartman.   ::frown::

I thought maybe Peabo Bryson, but can't find any songs that he sang with that title, so it's probably not him. 

It is a great song, too, so I'm surprised I haven't been able to find the artist. 

Anyone else care to guess?  Anyone else remember the song?   ???

Much more pleasant than my reference.  The song in question was about a girl in 1978 who woke up one Monday morning, got her gun and started shooting at the school across the street from her house, killing several.  When asked why she did it, she said, "I don't like Mondays."

Bob Geldof heard this story come in while doing an interview in a radio station and put his shock at the situation to music.

It's a catchy song.  Really.  It's going around in my head now.

Thanks.

I'll be subbing until a full-time position comes open (possibly for the rest of the school year, in other words).  I emailed the county board late last night to let them know I'm available to sub again.  I got a call at 6:12 this morning asking if I could sub in a second grade class for the next two days.  I said sure, if I'm allowed to, since my certification is 5-12. 

The job is at Ranger, which is a 50 minute drive from my house.  School starts there at 7:15. 

I stuck my head under a faucet and went out the door.

No, it's a truffle - caramel, chocolate, and nuts dipped in chocolate.

He sits on half of an Oreo, his ears are almond slices, and the tails were cut from Twizzlers.  They were fun to make!

:(  My dog has broken into the chicken enclosure twice in the past couple of days.  I heard the squaking today and saved  Pipsqueak (my bantam that lays pink eggs) from his jaws.
I checked and Chickmunk, my rhode island red/auracana cross is missing.  I searched, but am unable to find her.  The only feathers I see lying around belong to Pipsqueak, so I am hoping to find Chickmunk.  I am not very hopeful though.  I see no sign of her.  The chickens in the coop are terrified when I went to check on them. :(

Bill, I have never seen a bunny lay eggs.  My chickens are old and only lay when the days grow long and the weather mild.

well I guess that is why I have no colored eggs. I was waiting as told that the easter bunny would bring colored eggs. Now I must hurry to the store to make some for tomorrow.

I never really learned about the easter bunny, so I am clueless.  Growing up we used to dye eggs using food coloring and vinegar on Saturday.  Then early Sunday morning, my mom would hide those around the house, along with plastic eggs stuffed with peanuts and raisins.  No candy or chocolate, no bunnies.  I had one of those health-food freaks for a mom.  lol. :)

Yeah....but every Sunday instead of only once a year is cool.....even if you had to eat tofu bunnies!

I've always liked "Our God, He is Alive", but suddenly something about the lyrics is bothering me.  The problem's with me, not the lyrics, likely.  It's just that right now, the lyrics seem to me to be portraying God as being too distant.

Lyrics some have never heard:

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

I've heard of people dying their hair weird colors using Kool-ade.  I guess you'd have to have light colored hair for it to work.  Hmmm, How do you think cherry flavored would look?

We are about to enter into another great depression. Our leaders in government have failed us yet again. The banks, will ultimately be responsible for the depression yet again. The Federal Reserve has been destroying our economy since it's creation.
