Title: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: Miaisland on February 10, 2008, 06:27:18 AM
I have a need for a thread to share happy news with my forum friends.
To talk about the things in life that makes us happy.
Small things in everyday life or important happy changes....

Hey Mia!  What a great idea for a thread!  We could use some happy thoughts and news after all the rough times lately.

Here's some happiness from me!

Wonderful that you're getting more daylight, Marleen.

I went to the park yesterday.  It closes at sundown.  I noticed that at 5 PM, the sun was still high in the western sky, and it was still light when I got home at 6 PM.

What a great thread!  I was a little bitchy on another one today because I was getting tired of some of the stuff that I was reading so I am happy to be here!

Yes, it's staying light longer and today when I went out the snow was melting and the sun was shining!!

I'm gonna try to figure out this picture posting thing.

Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news

Oh yes (((((((((( Debbie ))))))))) it's so good the daylight is returning.

This Friday I saw on the news we had nearly half an hour more daylight in just one week.

That's a lot.
Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: Miaisland on February 10, 2008, 01:26:31 PM
I just have to tell this because I am so happy.

Yesterday my son and daughter in law came here to tell me a 7-week old embryo of a grandchild is growing!!!!

It’s not official yet, as they want to wait a few more weeks, just in case something goes wrong, so I can’t tell my friends or relatives yet. But just the thought makes me so happy I can’t hold it in, have to share it.

No matter what it is a little miracle that just started to grow. I decided to allow myself to be happy about the news. If sad things would happen it wouldn't help if I held my joy back now.

Just the thought of  being blessed with a grandchild in September makes me the happiest woman on earth.

Thanks for loving Alton!  Yeah, he really is huge.  He's a Norwegian Forest Cat and only Maine Coons are bigger.  He's actually a bit small for the breed and a lot of his size is the hair.  But he really, truly makes me carry him around.  If I try and put him down, he clings to me so I can't.  Too funny.

Today's joy is that I'm going to get my hair cut - last time was in October.  Can you believe that?  I look like a hag but will soon feel wonderful!

what a great thread!

In London we've been having 5, 6 days of sunshine on end (very unusual in these parts of the world!) and people have been pouring on the streets in quantities never seen before.
Last Sunday there were Chinese New Year celebrations in central London and that must have brought 1 million people into the streets. It was a such a joyful celebration I really felt better after the past two weeks.
Seeing people dressed in summer clothes in early February also made me feel better. :)

And that came the day after I saw those beautiful, uplifting images on Cottelsoe beach in Perth, and the whole idea of mourners being there watching the sunset in celebration of Heath's life, and being close to water as a powerful symbol of life and regeneration...

In London we've been having 5, 6 days of sunshine on end (very unusual in these parts of the world!) and people have been pouring on the streets in quantities never seen before.
Last Sunday there were Chinese New Year celebrations in central London and that must have brought 1 million people into the streets. It was a such a joyful celebration I really felt better after the past two weeks.
Seeing people dressed in summer clothes in early February also made me feel better. :)

And that came the day after I saw those beautiful, uplifting images on Cottelsoe beach in Perth, and the whole idea of mourners being there watching the sunset in celebration of Heath's life, and being close to water as a powerful symbol of life and regeneration...


Thank you!

Londoners celebrating in summer clothes... already?

Spring is on it's way. Yay!

Oh yes, good weather (aka clear sky) is not usually a daily occurrence in Britain, so people go a little overboard when the sun comes out!  ;)

First of all : Welcome New Thread !!   :)   :)   :)

Now may I share my latest happy news?

Saturday night, I went to the theater with a friend of mine. It was the show with Mrs Robbinson.
I haven't watched the movie, and I knew nothing about it.
I just went to that show, because my favourite actor was playing.

The show sucked. It was disgusting ! Directing, and most of the acting was so shitty and booooriiiiing !

But there HE was ! OMG !!! I FELL IN LOVE !!!!! BEAUTIFUL !!! ACTING PERFECTLY !!!!
In the magazines I had read, that he would get completely undressed.
Stupid magazines   >:(  He did get undressed, but with his underwear on, DAMN !!

After the show ended, my friend told me to go meet him backstage, and take an autograph and a picture !

I was so shy ! I was fucking shaking. So there we were, at the end of the queue, after all those
13 and 15 year old gilrs, waiting to meet HIM !! Finally our turn came   ::)   ::)   ::)   ::)   ::)

I was shocked by beauty !! I was shaking. I managed to tell him "Congratulations for everything".
(He also plays at a TV series, and he was also the main character at a greek movie called "Straight Story",
that had to do with homophobia, and was very good, and HE was PERFECT).

My friend took a picture of me and him (I looked like shit).
Then I took a pic of her and him, but the picture didn't come out clear, since there was no way that I could stop
my hand from shaking !!

So for the whole Sunday, I had this smile on my face !
I'M IN LOVE GUYS !!!   ::)

OK. That was my happy news. Can I give the biggest HUG to that man that I missed sooooooo sooooooooo much ?

Today is a historic day, a day of new beginnings for Australia.

As the first item on the agenda of the newly elected national parliament, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd offered an unqualified apology to the Stolen Generations for the racist policy and practices of past parliaments and governments.

He recognized the Indigenous cultures as the oldest continuous living human cultures in the world, proud cultures which had been degraded by part government policies.

Up until the 1970s, it was government policy that children of mixed Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal parents be removed from their Aboriginal families to be brought up as white and perhaps as many as 100,000 were forcibly separated from family, country and culture. The intergenerational trauma and suffering were documented in the stories of stolen children and their bereft families in a report commissioned by an earlier government in 1995 and the first recommendation in the Bringing Them Home Report in 1997 was for a national apology. By that time, there was a new, stubborn, stone-hearted government which refused to apologize for 11 years and ruined the process of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

In his speech, PM Rudd also quoted the words and  experience of an 80-year old woman, Nanna Fejo, who was stolen from her mother along with her brothers in the 1920s. He had visited her a few days ago. Members of the Stolen Generations and Aboriginal elders were present in the Distinguished Visitors gallery on the floor of parliament and in the public gallery. The PM's speech was televised live and screened on giant screens outside parliament in in the major cities. Many Indigenous people had travelled to Canberra from all over the country to witness the apology and to lobby for changes to the previous government's intervention in the Northern Territory. The majority of Australians applauded the long-delayed apology.

The PM also invited the Leader of the Opposition to join him in chairing something like a war cabinet, a joint commission to solve the housing crisis in many Aboriginal communities and if it is successful to develop a referendum to recognize Indigenous peoples in the Constitution. He committed the government to achieving targets in pre-school education for children in remote communities within 5 years and in the process of closing the enormous gaps in infant mortality, life expectancy, education. He recognized that the apology was just the first step in a hard process.

The formal opening of parliament yesterday was also a milestone. For the first time, it included a Welcome to Country ceremony conducted by an Aboriginal elder.

Wow, what wonderful news!  It may have been a long time in coming, but it sounds like things maybe will be going in the right direction.

So many countries do not treat their indigenous peoples with the respect they deserve.  I'm from the US, live in Sweden, and there are problems in both of these places.

Thank you so much for sharing that.  Very happy and very joyful news indeed!!

I just heard about this offical Australian aborigine-excuse-news in the radio news over lunch, and thought:
Ouff! It was about time. Not that it changes so much in everyday life, but it had to be outspoken - and I am more than glad that it happened...

I want to thank you once again for telling us about the milestone in Australian history. For describing what happened in Australia today. For talking about hope in this important issue that concerns us all.

Unfortunately it was (and is) hard for me to talk about this in English, to properly express myself in this foreign language on matters like this. As I watched the news tonight I understood the importance of what happened in Australia today so much better thanks to your post.

Once again - thank you!

Today (February 13th) is a happy day in my family.

On this date 43 years ago, my parents got married.

I wonder if they knew what they were in for when they got married.
They've been through A LOT!

A wedding day

a number of cars

the birth of 3 children

owning their own home

working on the railroad for years

teaching children as an aide

watching their second born almost get expelled, and then turn around and become a police officer.

watching their third born get diagnosed with dyslexia and be classified as neurologically impaired, and then watch him become the site supervisor at his job

watching their first born son get through a dark and depressing time, come out of the closet, and lose 70lbs, get out of debt, and start to enjoy life

watching their parents pass away

make it to retirement, and begin the golden years


Here are Mom & Dad when they first started dating.

I would like to share a cute story, something that happened to me today...  It is still making me smile.

I have a class of 4 nine-year-old trumpet students..... all boys.  They are adorable and always have a lot to say when they come to their lesson!  One of them has the winningest smile you have ever seen....... his whole being lights up when he smiles, I will call him M. 

Today they arrived at my classroom as usual and we started the lesson.  Something distracted them and they started a conversation about their birth months..... I decided to go with the flow and let them talk for a minute until they asked me when my birth month is.  I told them "February" which then led them to ask what day.  When I told them it was this past Monday, M started to lead the others in a chorus of Happy Birthday, complete with conducting!  At the end they started "are you one? are you two?.......  " and so on.......  I started to laugh and told them we would be there all afternoon if they continued that way......  so, without skipping a beat they started again with "Are you 10? are you 20? are you 30? are you 40?........."  at that point M, in his loudest voice to lead the others, yelled "are you 41? are you 42?"  and so on.........with the biggest smiley grin I have ever seen!  It was the most adorable thing!  We all started to laugh and I told him he already knew how to be a perfect gentleman...... and that he just scored extra points for today's lesson.  He then winked at me....   :D :D :D  It made my day (as I'm not 40ish anymore :D :D :D)

Today's happy news are:

-the forum's back to work
-so good to meet you all here

-me and my son (13 next month) decided to study a bit of html and start a site of our own, or a myspace or facebook page, not sure about what, but it's nice to work together because
 a)I have fun
 b)I learn new things
 c)I saw that look of interest in his eyes
 d)I encourage him to spread his wings and fly away but at the same time it's so important to do things together
 e)I am respected by him for being a 'technological Mum'  ;D (none of his friends'mothers chats or goes to YouTube or has fun with the Internet...in fact I'm considered a bit weird...ehm...more than a bit actually  :D) and I want to keep up with his expectations!

Chuckie, it was great to read about your parents and their life adventures.
Your mother's pic is awesome. A true beauty!
And on the last dancing pic, they seem so happy together, so in harmony.
That's exceptional, you know.

Today's happy news are:

-the forum's back to work
-so good to meet you all here

-me and my son (13 next month) decided to study a bit of html and start a site of our own, or a myspace or facebook page, not sure about what, but it's nice to work together because
 a)I have fun
 b)I learn new things
 c)I saw that look of interest in his eyes
 d)I encourage him to spread his wings and fly away but at the same time it's so important to do things together
 e)I am respected by him for being a 'technological Mum'  ;D (none of his friends'mothers chats or goes to YouTube or has fun with the Internet...in fact I'm considered a bit weird...ehm...more than a bit actually  :D) and I want to keep up with his expectations!

This is wonderful dahlia!  You will have so much fun together in this project.

Thank you Miaisland, Tammy, Ingy, Daniela and Sue for joining in my happiness at the news in Australia. I'm actually in Bangkok and haven't had any Australians to share the feeling with in person here.

Many Stolen Generation people in Australia have already spoken about a weight being lifted from their hearts and feeling that the healing has begun. I've been reading lots of happy responses from non-Indigenous Australians on blogs online. Most people also seem to be realistic enough to understand that it is the beginning of a hard process.

It was wonderful seeing the video footage of parts of the apology on Aljazeera English's news telecasts, especially as the news is so often full of the most terrible news.

I'm glad to see happy news in your lives too.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. As well as sharing it with my partner, I received Happy Valentine's Day greetings from my haematologist and even the cashier at the hospital.

Good news today is...........it's Friday, it's payday, and next week we're on vacation!  WooHoooooo!!

Also, we are going to visit daughter and future SIL in NC for 5 days and, for the first time ever, be their guests.  How cool is that?  I cannot wait!  She is giving a clarinet recital, the main reason for our trip.  I am just so proud of her  ;D  (there isn't a smiley for that, is there?)

Yes, it is, in the US. I think they use the word "marks" in the UK, but I'm not positive.

But you can say that a person scored well on a test (as a verb). Yet, the word "score" (as a noun) in a school situation is limited to an athletic contest between two teams or individuals.

It can be a bit confusing.

I just got good news that my youngest son who is in the US Coast Guard, stationed in Kodiak, Alaska made it home ok after having been snowed in on St. Paul Island. He was 4 days overdue.

He has also been accepted into a new class to learn to work on the electrical systems of the aircraft he works on. He will be in North Carolina for 9 weeks.

Here he is with my grandson who will be two next month.

My hands were shaking and I couldn't see when I found and posted the squirrel pic.  I knew what I was looking for too!  I could hardly do it, I was laughing so hard.

I'm laughing just thinking about it.  LMAO!

Just a late night peek-in to say hi to my dear forum friends......  I have had a wonderful day..... uneventful flight with daughter and fiance waiting outside the UNCG music building when we arrived!  There were many hugs and kisses and happy faces!  Attended a repertoire class where she performed the Brahms E-flat clarinet Sonata (beautifully, of course!).  A short tour of the school was followed by dinner out at "Jake's Diner" ... no kidding!  (Also had coffee this morinng at "Jake's Coffee Bar" at the airport....hubby said it must have been some kind of fate.......  :D)  Now we are watching the Lunar Elipse...........  It has been a great day!

Will see you all soon....... 

Much love, joy, and happiness to you all!

Had a great day today and ended with Jimmy and Michael and I sharing a spaghetti dinner here at the house.

That sounds like a good time, Linda.   :-*



Yesterday I said I hoped I would have more inspiring news today, aside from taxes.  As I mentioned in the Diner, my friend with prostate cancer underwent a lot of tests on Tuesday.  Yesterday the news came back that the cancer had not spread anywhere else. 

He may not even choose to have surgery; he's thinking about an outpatient treatment where they beam radiation at the tumor five days a week for eight weeks.

I'll spend a short weekend in Berlin, together with Mr S, from next Friday evening onwards, where we'll celebrate the 50th birthday of an old friend of mine (the mother of my godson).

Yay!



A 50th birthday party! Those parties can be so fun!!!! And congrats to having a godson, to being a godfather. I am absolutely certain you are the best godfather.... How old is he?

27 years ago today I became a mother! I felt very young, was only 23 and so insecure. But the moment I first saw my little baby boy I felt so familiar with him. Like I had known him forever. Maybe I had....

He was the most beautiful baby imaginable. For many years people in the city he was born in compared newborn babies with him.....

Today I celebrate that moment. Tomorrow all the older relatives will come here for a birthday dinner. Will be so nice!!!!

I am also thinking about the new life growing.... Maybe it will be official at the dinner...

I feel so much in the middle of things, of life.

I am feeling very happy because the sun is shining, I feel the warmth on my face.  Simply lovely.

C is home - that is joyful news!

I am starting a new life.  I have changed the way I eat, I am getting away from the job I hate (not voluntarily, but sometimes a push is better than waiting to make up your mind to make changes that you need), and I may even do some more studying.  I love to study!

I'm joyful because it feels like I'm starting a new chapter on my life.  ;D

Tonight, at my son's birthday dinner the news about the new little life growing was told to the relatives. It's now official a grandchild is expected in September!!!

We had a wonderful dinner. Everybody laughed and talked and told stories and was just happy. And after the dinner my brother told us he had a surprise....

Among the things my father left behind there were a 16 mm film my brother restored. He was very secretive about it - just watch, he said as we sat down and he started the DVD.

I got some kind of happiness shock.... The film was from -41, mostly in colour, and with a very good quality. It was from my grandparents beautiful house, kids (my aunt's and others) playing, the garden and.... All of a sudden I saw my grandmother!!!! My beloved grandmother, moving, smiling, caring for the kids and her husband. Such a beautiful woman, not yet 40 years old and looking so happy. She was so important to me - and still is. She was - and still is in a way - our matriarch. She died 35 years ago. I have never seen her on film, moving. This was nearly as meeting her again. I was so happy I cried!!!

This film being restored right now can't be a coincident. The day it's official I am going to be a grandmother, a "farmor" (means fathers mother) I get to see my "farmor" on this film. Because of her I have always thought that one of the finest things to be in life is a grandmother, a "farmor".

I saw her on this film tonight!!!!! I am so happy!!!!

I'm actually going to more book sales today!  There are two actual bookshops downtown - I was just at the supermaket yesterday.  Everyone has books for this sale, though.

I bought a cookbook - Jamie Oliver in Italy.  I love Italian cooking, ate a lot of it growing up as my grandfather (my mom's dad) came over to the US as a very little boy from Italy back in 1903 or so. 

I bought a suspense/thriller/crime trilogy by a Swedish author.  It's called Millenium.  Mia will know what and who I'm talking about.

I bought two fun books - 1001 Film and 1000 Places you must see before you die.  I'm going to try and see as many of the films as I can.  Very fun books.

Today, I'm going to buy some books in English - they have one downtown about the attack on Dresden during WWII - that topic interests me a lot.  I'm sure I'll find some other good ones.

I'll let you know when I get back!  I love, love, love browsing through books and buying new ones!!!!!

Hi Marleen, I didn't know your granddad came from Italy  ;D

I like Jamie Oliver too. I also saw him a couple of times playing with his daughters in one of the parks here in London.

At the weekend the book I ordered with Amazon UK - Eric Patterson's On Brokeback Mountain - finally arrived.

Very absorbing and thought-provoking book. Lots of background information on American culture, literary parallels with Walt Whitman and others, etc  that I was not familiar with and helps me put BBM in perspective. Plus it's very well written, the language is not academic at all, is accessible to all, but very rich and profound all the same.

Re-Hi (((((MIA)))))

I'm here to share my latest happy newz : One more person loved BBM movie, because of me me ME !!   ::)   ::)   8)   :P

She wouldn't watch it, because she thought it would be a silly movie, about to cowboys who were gay.

She had no idea that it would be a real love story, with so deep feelings, and such great acting and everything !

I'm so proud of me !!   ;D  I shared the BBM love to one more person !!   ;=

Oh! And by coinsidence (and I don't believe in coincidenses), next day, one of the news papers here,
was giving as a present, the BBM-DVD !!!!!

So I bought it (I already have it twice, one normal and one HD, but it was region 1 from US, and without the greek subtitles,
but I had to get the greek-DVD too, and the blue-ray one is on it's way too, ok this parenthesis got too long, I'm closing it)  ***pant pant***

and she also bought it, to add it in her collection of favourite movies !!   :)   :)   :)

Living close to the sea makes me happy.

A few hundred meters from my house - were I walk every day. This picture is from June.

Love the Lighthouse pics, Sue. I have some friends who are Lighthouse lovers, been up and down both coasts here, and course, you can imagine what the shelves and tables have on them in their house? I never though much about touring a Lighthouse until I started traveling back East all the time.........still want to take a vacation up and down the East coast..........probably when I retire........want to hike the Appalachian Trail too..........so much to plan!!

First piece of happy news:

I booked the flight for London!

panick is growing
Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: dahlia on March 08, 2008, 12:50:17 AM
My son went to see a museum with his school (Pinacoteca di Brera)

We all take it for granted, and so do our kids, but really it's an amazing thing that just a few kms from here, and stored in a few meters from one another, there are world-famous paintings from Raffaello, Caravaggio, Paolo Uccello, Andrea Mantegna, who changed the history of European art.

This painting in particular (Il Cristo Morto di Mantegna) always astonished me. What a skill, what a genius, what an eye he had, to choose this point-of-view

We will make sure we have the best environment available for Baby Gres.  As Mia said, we will drink all your alcoholic beverages.  We can sing for Baby Gres.  We can put a limit on the burping and farting.  We will speak quietly.  (I don't think I know how to do that - LOL - but I can try)

I was like an idiot over in the diner - I hadn't seen your announcement here.  Took me a few minutes to catch up.

What an exiting weekend. Hope you'll all have a wonderful time, and that you get to know them well.

But the four ladies shopping together..... That sounds so nice, nearly as wonderful as the wedding itself.....

I am so happy for you. And I'm sure you'll find the dress for that happy day.

But the earliest spring flowers are blooming...

The sun woke me up really early this morning.
Sun shines on a thin layer of snow. It's very, very bright.

Today is traditionally the day for all the witches here to fly to the annual gathering.
Kids dress like "Old Easter-women" and go from door to door with Easter cards and everywhere they get candy.

So it's time for me to get broom ready. I'm leaving at sunset for "Blåkulla".

Today is traditionally the day for all the witches here to fly to the annual gathering.
Kids dress like "Old Easter-women" and go from door to door with Easter cards and everywhere they get candy.

Thank you, ((((((((((((((((( Daniela )))))))))))))))

Great picture, and a great poem....

Means something like:

"Look, there the witch starts,
on the way to "Blåkulla"
Block the chimney, light the fire
And let us without haste
happily gather and celebrate Easter!"

(Is your broom ready to fly, Daniela?  ;) :-*)

well there is no association here between Easter and witches (I never heard that in fact). But of course, out of solidarity, I'll fetch one....

See you tonight, then.  ;)

 :-* :-*

Btw, talking about brooms, have you and your kids read Harry Potter?

I was so happy about those books as they made two of my kids really begin to read.
And in English at early ages.

I read the first (I think) 4 books TO my first son.....yes it took a long time, but I enjoyed it! Then he read the rest on his own - in Italian of course.

we saw ALL of the movies.....currently rewatching HP 1st (Christchurch College is in Oxford  ;))

I liked very much the first book. To tell you the truth I found the rest a bit boring.....A great story, anyway. The movies were quite good on the whole.

Now probably my second son who's 8 this month could begin reading them as well. They both love reading, very much.

Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: Miaisland on March 20, 2008, 01:49:23 AM
Today all the witches rides their brooms, usually with their black cats and coffee pots, to the island "Blåkulla".
(There is no such place in Sweden, but there are some speculations about it...)

And at "Blåkulla" the annual gathering of the witches take place. I think a big fire is involved. Maybe a party too. It's joyful anyway...
I've also heard something about rubbing the broom with some herbs. Not sure about that...

 ;D ;D




And I read the first four Potter-books to my daughter too. After that she couldn't wait so the rest of the books she read on her own. The two latest in English.

This is a bit like Halloween in Sweden. All over the country there are kids dressed like witches today.
I just had my first visit.

As I believe this is a rest of an old, pagan tradition.

To me today has always been a day for fun and joy.
This is a day when I celebrate female power.

The sun woke me up really early this morning.
Sun shines on a thin layer of snow. It's very, very bright.

Today is traditionally the day for all the witches here to fly to the annual gathering.
Kids dress like "Old Easter-women" and go from door to door with Easter cards and everywhere they get candy.

So it's time for me to get broom ready. I'm leaving at sunset for "Blåkulla".

That is an interesting Easter tradition that I had not heard of.

It feels like years since it's been here......wonderful songs, little darling. George Harrison is so special, and hearing him singing 'little darling' in this song gives me such a thrill that all of you understand and share, isnt it?

Wonderful thoughts coming from you, Mia!!!

We just spent a most marvelous weekend!  Seeing one of daughter's best friends married on Friday night - wonderful party following with a most excellent table of interesting adults, many of them musicians!

Yesterday, the future in-laws arrived and we had a party for the betrothed who were here for the weekend.  Many friends and family, lots of fun and good food!  Today we took the fiance's parents to see some of our local sights, and to see the wedding place.  They and the kids just left and I'm still smiling....... it was an amazing weekend!

I hope everyone has had an excellent weekend!  Many (((((((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))) to all!

I love birthday parties. And my godson!!!

Just came home from a wonderful dinner celebrating my godson on his birthday and his mothers birthday tomorrow. It was very nice.
And we laughed a lot watching old pictures from -75 of two very young girls in ugly clothes and hairdo's.
My daughter laughed so hard looking at the two of us.

It was a very nice evening! And really good food. Don't think I have to eat more this week...  ;)

I don't think this qualifies exactly as "joy and happy news" but something happened on my way home from work that made me smile........ just when I needed it.

I stopped at the wine shop for my weekly purchase and the proprietor seemed to want to ask me something.

After he stumbled a bit and said he hoped he wasn't out of line or would embarass me he asked, "have you ever been on Broadway?" 

When I said, "Many times, but never in a show!"  we both had a good laugh.  I don't know who he thought I might be.

It was cute and I was tickled that he might think that.......

Today I spent two and an half hour with my hairdresser. I have never before looked so much like shit coming to her. She laughed when I entered the place!!!!  :o :o :o

She is a true professional. And as the years have passed she has also became a very good friend. She says she looks forward to working with my hair and meeting me - and I believe her....

Anyway.... Now I don't look like shit anymore. My hair is really gorgeous, blond and curly (she cuts the curls out somehow...)

I feel great!!!!!

In France, this type of 3-colour cat is called "une Isabelle"  :)
Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news

Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: chapeaugris on May 13, 2008, 05:49:03 AM
Actually, you say "un isabelle" because it's le chat. I didn't know this until just recently, when a neighbor said he'd gotten a kitten and when he said it was an Isabelle I thought he meant some kind of obscure breed. In America I think that kind of cat is called "calico" and if it has 3 colours but no white its a tortoiseshell (somebody correct me if I'm wrong). It reminded me that in our family, when our cat had kittens, any black and white ones were named Louie or Louise and I can't remember how that started! But have you noticed, Ing, that French people tend to name their pets after food? When we got our dog she was already named Praline. We've met other dogs her colour named Caramel and Noisette and a black one called Chocolat. (Our kids named our black cat Cookie -- thinking of Oreos, I believe, which are a rare treat for them).

Post by: ingmarnicebbmt on May 13, 2008, 06:49:15 AM

Kim - France is about Food only. My experience.

Only discussion topic. And often weird. Like food and religion combined.

You know, when you heat up a (frozen) dish in a big pot of boiling water, on the stove, you call that a BAIN MARIE.

Never understood what the Holy Virgin has to do with some lousy food from Picard.

No Frenchman could ever explain to me why it is called like that.

But why Isabelle, of all names? What makes a 3-colours-cat Isabelle and not Nathalie ??

I'm bewildered.

My son (8yrs old) and his classmates were asked to write a sentence about their Mum on Mother's Day.
Here's what he wrote:

"Do you really come from another planet? Thanks for baking me pizza and massaging me before I sleep. I love you a lot."

 :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

and here he is reading......guess what, Mia?  ;) ...........Pippi Calzelunghe! as we call Pippi Longstockings (PS He and my husband chose the book. I didn't suggest it :D)

What a wonderful thing your son wrote about you. I'm sure you are the best mother!!!! Be proud!!!!!

And I hope he enjoys the book! It's great.
Can you believe it was first published in 1945 - and it's still considered controversial in some places.....

Helsinki - late spring early summer - wonderful...

Arrived at 8.30pm and NEEDED to wear sunglasses - Went out at 11pm, and it was only just dusk!

Wonderful sunshine today, and went out for food and shopping - And Jari made me have a mild hangover already...

Its great to hang with my big brother even if he told me to strip and get in the sauna as soon as I arrived!!!!!! hahahaha

And last night at a bar, a girl told me that I looked very pure but that Jari didn't... He told her 'Honey if I were 46 and still pure, it would be very sad!!!!!!!!'

Earl and I just got back from our Dominion Hills neighborhood walkabout. Learned a few new things about the area, among others that between 1945 and 1951 Warren Beatty and Shirley Maclaine (brother and sister) grew up in a house a few blocks from here, and that Audrey Meadows (Ralph Kramden's wife in The Honeymooners) also lived for a while in an estate at the far end of the neighborhood when she was married to a TWA executive.

There are also a few more notorious things that happened here.  :D

Hugs everyone !!!!   :)   :)   :)

I can't wait to see how this is going to evolve !

Media and everyone has been "fighting" over this for months !

Finally a mare of an island made the first step and allowed this, no matter what everyone else was saying.
So according to the greek law, ALL THESE YEARS, the gender of the people who want ta have a political marriage
is NOT mentioned ! So all these years it was only a matter of decission-to-do-it   :)

I'm so happy this is happening !   :)

Had a long and wonderful celebration with my family, parents and kids as we have been celebrating daughters end of school year with a beautiful ceremony at school and a long day with coffee, sparkling wine and a barbecue at the new patio.....

Heard on the weather report that our part of Sweden today was the warmest in all Europe....

This is our newly invented national day for all of us to share

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((( Marleen )))))))))))))))))))))

and thank you for the congrats

Hey Mia!

We had a wonderful day today, celebrating Sveriges Nationaldag!  I watched the Army's Drum Corps on TV - they had a bunch of other stuff on SVT 1 and Claes was all misty.  He's cute!

It was actually HOT today.  Like, hot as hell.  We treated ourselves to some ice cream earlier today.  It was crazy.

Let's share Nationaldagen stories tomorrow!

We'll be spending the 4th of July up at the cabin, and going to a party at a friend's house in the valley. Should be a lot of fun!

And I've got a storehouse of good looking guys posed against the flag to post that day!  :D

Sweden is waking up to another beautiful summers day.

I woke up smiling. Humming a song from my childhood.
I was about 7, deeply in love with the singer
(the keybaord player is Benny Andersson from Abba)

Well, I'm a proud Swedish citizen and I thoroughly enjoy watching the national team compete in lots of different sports.  I think it's wonderful to feel that sense of comraderie with other Swedes and have real joy when I watch matches and can root and cheer for the team.

So I love watching football and was screaming with joy and happiness when Sweden beat Greece.  A wonderful feeling and it was a great match.  It was also wonderful to have such fun with my fantastic boyfriend.

Yay Football!  Yay European Championship!!!!!

Sueshoes won't do....  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Midsummers night.... Just the way you are. Or bare feet.
In our tradition for midsummers eve anything could do.
The most important thing is actually the eroticism.
That's really what this celebration is about.
.... things like skinny dipping under the midnight sun.....

.... and dancing around the flower dressed pole....

Monday evening when I was thinking about my forum friends and feeling particularly sad about not being able to go to Oxford, the most beautiful rainbow to the east appeared, and to the west a most magnificent sunset......

To my Dearest Sue,

I wanted to put a special note here to you.  Why?  Because your friendship brings me so much joy and happiness.  Today, we were talking about you and how much we like you.  Helen, Mia and I were all saying that we just know you're a person that we would all get along with so well if you were here - and we wish so much that you were.

You're always kind, caring and just lovely.  A gorgeous person, both inside and out.  We miss you so much and think about you and talk about you often.  We feel like we're 4 girls hanging out, except our 4th girl is over the big pond.

I love you!!!!  I'm thinking about you!!!!  And I miss you sweetie.  We will continue to think and talk about you - and send you giant, tight hugs.

Soon, I'll be telling you about my adventure here while sipping wine on your porch.  I can't wait!

So don't be sad and don't feel left out.  Trust me, you're right here with us.

((((((((((((((((((( Sue )))))))))))))))))))))
Title: Re: Sharing joy and happy news
Post by: Tammy on June 18, 2008, 10:34:29 AM
To our Sweet Relma,

We miss you!!!!  It's not going to be the same without you here, sunshine.  You bring us so much joy and happiness in the diner and we wish we had some of that in person here.

You are so sweet and kind and funny and just wonderful.  We talk about you with such fondness and love.  You are here in our hearts and in our thoughts.  Trust me - you're at the reunion. 

I'm going to raise a glass and toast you.  We send you so much friendship and love.  And of course, big hugs!

Take care over there and know that there are 3 girls here in England thinking of you and smiling.

Love you!!!

You're right, there's absolutely nothing decent about us 62ers.
*sue innocently asks "what's a 62er?*

We had a discussion about decency, and about men in the forum born in 1962 (Jari, Marc, myself).


She was wondering how a 62er can relate to a 69er and was afraid to know the answer......(am I right Sue  :D?)

Last night my mother called me and told me that she found out one of her cousins lived in the same city where I am.

Mrs.Sayoko Y. used to own a restaurant in center of Tokyo not far from the Imperial Palace
and her husband also ran a restaurant in Kobe.
More than 20 years ago my mother and I went to visit her once at her restaurant in Tokyo.

I know my mother and Sayoko-san are not one of the closest cousins but my mother kept in touch with
Sayoko-san's sister in Okayama.
Most of my relatives live in the western part of Japan and I only knew 2 of my cousins in Tokyo.
Never imagined a relative would be living here in Nagano.  What a coincidence and a surprise!

From the address I got from my mother, Sayoko-san and her husband (and maybe their daughter)
live in the hotspring quarter on the other side of the city only 3 to 4 miles away.
Yesterday, K and I went to bathe in one of the hotsprings there and I must have been within half mile from her house.

I have not contacted her yet but will see what happens.

I'm also really happy that I have Facebook.  I've had people I haven't heard from in years find me on there - and I've found some of them.  It's so wonderful to be in touch with people you really care about in that way.  I went through my friend list there today - so many amazing people.

My happy news for today is that the first day after the vacation turned out perfect. I got things done and feel good about being back from the vacation trips. Maybe even with some new energy and new perspective of life. I wish and hope so anyway.

And the little new life in my dil’s belly is growing.
It feels like I’m also carrying something. A secret maybe... Or a hope of love and continuation....

It’s a deep and wonderful feeling.

My happy news for today is that the first day after the vacation turned out perfect. I got things done and feel good about being back from the vacation trips. Maybe even with some new energy and new perspective of life. I wish and hope so anyway.

And the little new life in my dil’s belly is growing.
It feels like I’m also carrying something. A secret maybe... Or a hope of love and continuation....

It’s a deep and wonderful feeling.


(((((((Mia))))))))

Glad that you had a good vacation and a good coming -back-from-vacation!!

And the baby....... just WOW.....

Yesterday I spent some time with my daughter in law.
Her belly is really big now. And it's supposed to keep on growing for four more weeks.

All of a sudden something started to move in the belly. "Here, tuch here" she said.

And I could feel it!!!!
My grandchild turned around in there!!!! I also felt something that probably was a little foot kicking!!!!

I'm in seventh heaven!!!!

This looks like a good place to come to when all the tragedy of BBM is getting me down!

Happy news?  Well, I've just had a wonderful Tai Chi weekend - non-stop sun after our terrible summer, so a lot of it was outside on the grass in the beautiful garden where we were staying.  Nice company and a lovely away-from-it all experience.

This looks like a good place to come to when all the tragedy of BBM is getting me down!

Yes it is! Sunlight is for free here, any time of year, 24-7  ;)

Tai Chi is great.

Another kind of waiting this morning. Waiting for more news from the parents.
And to make plans for the first time I'll see my grandson - and hold him in my arms...

Mia, I remember when you started this thread.  You had just found out you were going to be a grandmother, but it was early and you were being very cautious about everything, as of course you should.  You asked me about the title you wanted to have, how you wanted this place to be able to share this happy news.  And here you are, several months later, and it's all come full circle.

Many, many congratulations to you, your son and your daughter-in-law.  To the whole family, really.  Your joy for the past few months - of knowing you will be a farmor - is now joy at being a farmor to little Sixten, who is here with you now.

It was right after the Trosa Brokie get-together!"

Priceless!!

Grandmother

Grandmother hugs and Grandmother kisses,
Hot oven cookies and holiday wishes,
Attics with treasures of children grown old,
Stories of magic and princes so bold,
Oceans of patience and rainbows of love,
A bright ray of sunshine sent from above,
You stirred my childhood with rich, golden days,
Touching my life in so many ways.
When shadows are dark,
I reach through the night,
The love of a Grandmother shines like a light.

Thank you!  :-*

With all this joy and happiness going on here. The wonderful Brokie weekend, the magic of the beautiful boy arriving safely, I totally forgot something.....

After the gathering here I had the pure pleasure of spending over 24 hours exclusively with Daniela. Except for sleeping and being a little quiet now and then we talked about everything.... We cried and laughed and talked and walked and had meals and just sat in my kitchen. Kids, work, politics, religion, music, literature, film, our upbringing, our lives our cultures, cooking, our countries, the forum..... everything....

It was absolutely wonderful. It was nothing strange about doing this. A few times when I looked at her sitting across my kitchen table it felt very ordinary, like something we use to do every week or so. But now and then I realized it was nothing ordinary about it at all - it was like magic.

Ordinary and magical....  ;)

you put it so beautifully, Mia! - ordinary and magical at the same time - that seems to sum up how I feel about all this too. It should be ordinary - 'you know, it could be like this always'.....
..... but it didn't happen by accident at all - you made it happen! Stay happy  :D ((((((((Mia))))))))

Post by: dahlia on October 15, 2008, 12:13:13 AM
Ordinary and magical is a fantastic phrase. I stole it from Daniela.  ;)



And I stole it from an American writer (whose name now I don't remember). He was talking about what happens in one of his short stories; but that applies to life as well.
Another Italian writer that I love very much  -  he writes with 4 other authors using the collective pseudonym WuMing - wrote just this week about the 'healing power of words and stories'. And I think this, in turn, applies to our experience here.

Anyway.....this was to say that:

I came back from Sweden literally beaming; everybody noticed that. The Trosa meeting was wonderful, and Mia was more than wonderful.
I, too, had that sensation 'I've done it before'. It's a beautiful sensation.

Thank you for being in Trosa - to the people I've met - and thank you for being here - to the people who couldn't come and sent us their good vibrations from their distant homes.

Not all joys have to be big life altering ones.....

Today I installed my new computer monitor!    All by myself..!!! :D

It's a left over one I took home from work, but it's soooooo much better than my old one which was very small and very dark...

Now I'm able to see all the pics that were just black before...!!  :D

(and I'm very proud of the fact that I managed to install it all by myself.... ::))

I'm so happy for you that you made that move!  You won't regret it.

I left my job in June - still don't have a new one, but not going back to the old one is not just heaven, I think it's put 20 years back on my life.

Best of luck with the job search!

Josh has to use these gloves when he works, so I guess he brought one home and blew it up. They are very strong because of all the chemicals and stuff they have to use.

Thanks ((((Sonja)))). I am not sure either, but he has always had that many. I think his parents figure if he wakes up early he has something to play with and not wake them up!  :D

This was taken after his mom had read to him and then she turned the light off. Later in the evening she saw a light under the door, and went in and found him like this. He had turned the light back on and gotten the book to read to himself (he doesn't know how to read!  :D ) and had fallen asleep over it.

I have just returned from a most wonderful concert!  I am so PROUD of my SIL, a gifted musician and composer!  His music is exquisite and the orchestra's live performance was flawless.  The venue was perfect and just enhanced the qualities of the piece many times over.  To see him receive the accolades that he so deserves after the performance is something I will never forget!  Both audience members and orchestra members had wonderful things to say to him.......

Kim,
His degree is in Electro Optical  Engineering.
I am not sure what he is writing this one on.
He has several dozen published papers based on the research he is doing for the Navy.
Part of his research has to do with lasers and using their beams to correct the distortion of light that travels through the atmosphere.

He has dumbed it down for me, so that is how I can explain it.

If I get a copy of his dissertation, I will try to explain it to you!

I went to a rock show last night. Okkervil River from Austin, Texas.
My fave band. I discovered them a year ago by pure chance....love at first hearing.

The gig was packed with.....about 69% boys in their twenties, 30% girls in their twenties, a few over-forties like me and my husband. LOL!
Will Sheff came on stage with his nerd-ish looks, then poured his soul and blood in the songs; the drummer hit like a madman, and all the band was great.

Today my legs are all aching from standing and jumping all the time.....Gosh! Are we too old for this  ???

 :D :D :D :D

One of the best treats we can give ourselves.

Congrats to share it with Mr. Dahlia. And of course the boys and girls in their twenties....

I liked to hear it. Thanks for posting the link, here too.

Let's never get too old for treats like that!!!!!

On this day dedicated to generosity, I want to thank the infinite and always perfect labyrinth of causes and effects, and thanks for the gift of words which are our tools, our caress, our wings; and to that modest God/Goddess that sits next to me and looks after my life, my health and my affections and who, one day, will close my eyes. And for the sound of wind and the resin in trees, that remind us that we are also trapped in the subtle resin of life. And for those that loving mankind have learned to love everything that lives.

And thanks for all the poetry and the songs, for the wondrous colors of all the races, for the capacity and the art of thanking and forgiving. And thanks for the women and men who always comfort me and for movies that make us cry. And thanks for the mountains, the rivers, the wind and the sheep grazing in peace. For all of this, and those things I forget, thanks.

Just had a fmily-fixings-things-for-Christmas dinner here....

So I met my beloved Sixten after being sick for 4 weeks...

I had longed for him.... A very nice quality time with family.

Here's a wonderful picture of Sixten his father just gave me.

I have to share this:  I just paid off my credit cards!!   An aunt of mine died recently and left me a bit of money.  (She was in her late nineties and had been hospitalised for the last 25 years because of dementia, so her death was not tragic.)  The amount basically covered my credit card debts with a little left over.  I'm not very financially responsible so I owed VISA a substantial amount so this windfall is a blessing,  I am debt-free for the first time in my life!!

Now, I'm off shopping!  ;D

My good news is that a lovely little Vegan cafe opened just close to my workplace.

So a couple times a week I can have a delicious healthy lunch in a cosy place (the alternative being our lousy cafeteria or a cold sandwich in the office...)

Hi Sonja

That'll be nice - I love getting PMs, but don't worry  :D.

About a pic: I had thought of it, but - tell me I'm wrong about this - I'm just a little uneasy about putting photos of children on a forum that anybody can get access to.  What does everybody think?  (I love seeing pics of children/grandchildren myself.)
