    When I had my cataract surgery, they did have to put lidlocks on my glazzies.

    Somehow, I don't think that's what ol' Thomas Alva had in mind...

    Happy 4th of July, Droogs! The damned Brits and their taxing everything in sight, they lost the colonies, serves em right! They still had Canada though... Spain had most of South America, and Mexico too.

    I always thought George Washington signed the declaration of independence, I thought wrong! He was in New York fighting the British.

    "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness", "All men are created equal" 1776 :chatter:

    Last film I saw at the cinema was... I forgot... hang on... oh yes.. X-Men Dark Phoenix... oh come on someone had to go and see it... actually it wasn't near as bad as critics would have it. I quite enjoyed it, smaller in scale than others in the series, creepy too. Yeah I liked it. I'll pick it up on Blu later this year. Next week Spider-Man 7, should be fun.

    Lovely cat Dennis. It's just a shame she was named after whatsername.

    I might name a future pet Boris, depending on how well he does getting us out of the EU. :)

    Returned from Vegas several days ago. I saw Judas Priest at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel (same place I last saw them 8 years ago). Really enjoyed it! Halford can still wail, although he still does that "singing to the floor and sometimes turning his back to the audience" bit. They must have played at least 40 minutes before Halford said a word to the audience!! Not even "Hello Las Vegas!" until that point. Surprisingly, they didn't play "You've Got Another Thing Coming". The opening act was Uriah Heep, who will celebrate 50 years next year. Well, they kicked ass, too!!

    I got to see a lot of my favorite local Vegas bands, too. And the temperature really wasn't that bad -- maybe around 100 in the daytime. Feels much hotter now in humid Hawaii.

    Plan to see "Yesterday" tomorrow. :D

    PETA is still trying to convince various NY officials to change the name of the town of Fishkill. They've only been barking up that tree since 1996. Morons.

    IIUC "kill" is old Dutch for "creek" as in small river.

    Where's Cees when we need him?

    The history of Chicken Dinner Road is fuzzy but it all leads to a lady bribing various political officers to pave the road past her farm so she could avoid driving in the mud during the winter. The name always cracks me up when I drive on it.

    You are correct about "kill."

    The area is which I live is teaming with Dutch history.

    I am surrounded by more "kills" than I could ever shake a stick at.

    Normans Kill
    Catskill
    Peekskill
    Fishkill
    Kaikout Kill
    Hunger Kill
    Bozen Kill
    Poesten Kill
    Quaken Kill
    Lisha Kill
    Dwaas Kill
    Cobleskill
    Muitzes Kill
    Plattekill
    Wynantskill

    And that's certainly NOT a comprehensive list.

    I like lots of foreign words. I'm surprised that people I know, even veterinarians, don't know the Brit term "moggie". It means an non-pedigreed cat, similar to mongrel for doggies. Steve passed over it since it's so common in the UK.

    Yep 'moggie' is quite common here in the UK.

    Interesting about 'kill' meaning something else in Dutch, now I'm wondering if 'Kill Devils Hill' has a different meaning apart from killing devils on a hill. :unsure:

    RIP Rip Torn.
