As you have failed to post something new I feel I must engage in some puerile pedantry.
I must take exception to the title of this post:
"Before the Big Bang"
In cosmology the concept of the "Big Bang" has certain immutable constructs.
The word 'before' can not be used with referrence to the Big Bang. Prior to the Big Bang time and dimensional space did not exist. Accordingly, one can not use the word 'before' in its temporal meaning nor can it be used in its positional sense.
Only sayin' is all.
You can say: "You kids make sure you come home BEFORE 10pm" as time exists now. There is no BEFORE the Big Bang as time did not yet exist!
You can say: "You kids come over here and stand BEFORE me" as three dimensional space is extant now. You can not stand BEFORE the BIG BANG as space did not exist yet.

What?
Are you going to play Anne Murray tunes?

I did not know that 'Task' meant bubbles? I was told that task referred to the male groinal area when I was last in Sweden, Dec. 1975. It was in Upsala (uppsala?)
I will endeavour to keep in contact Ms. MMCA. I am bringing a state of the art WiFi laptop with me this time. Only the cheap Angkor beer will keep me from plaguing you after Dec. 6, plus or minus when I leave for Siem Reap, Cambodia. Home of the famous Angkor Wat temple complex which is second only to the Taj Mahal for beauty and spiritual power.

Your Oxford dictionary has been infiltrated by Yankee spies!
I am pulling your leg all the time here. The OED, Oxford English Dictionary, a 27 volume opus lists both spellings BUT prefers the "S" over the "Z" because it is originally British and these bastards just can't admit that the sun has set on the empire. I actually hate the English. I have had many a blood transfusion to render the English genes, that I inherited from my saintly mother, inoperable. I love to tease the Yankee about the spellings, they feel so inadequate when faced with the prestige of Britain and its official language.

V. Dentata:..."I love to tease the Yankee about the spellings, they feel so inadequate when faced with the prestige of Britain and its official language."

While that may be true, you have to admit that the Americans more than make up for it with really cool explosions on a regular basis.

The French version of Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae's poem leaves something to be desired though.
I can't help but muse:

I went for a walk in the park.
The poppy, the cross and the lark.
The location in French
of that World War One trench,
I am at a loss in the dark.

"Au Champs d'Honneur."
All very well, but how would I find it on a map?

"...borborygmus..."

Lord tunderin' girlfriend, I had to look this up! That doesn't happen very often. I am humbled, really.
Now POST!
And I do more than just play with words all day, I've been known to play with myself on occasion as well!

YES V.D. -
I intended to mention in my previous statement that I did not recognize the French version of "Flanders Fields" and assumed that you, with all your skills and time could bastardize the poem, but you did it with some class.
I don't like your scary avatar - I had to do some editing, but kept as much of our exchange as I could. How about a pigeon avatar, since you don't seem to like the idea of a snowflake. Good god girl, have some modesty. Bloggers International will get you, and then you will be in deep shit, and I will think twice about rescuing you, trying to resurrect your good ? name. I'm going to start calling you Virginia- OK??

Wait! I thought you weren't political:

"The political elite - They are not like you and I."

The current state of affairs in Afghanistan is more obscene than the toothy cartoon, but the image itself is not so different than what we're seeing in the papers these days.

Thanks for the heads up on VD's profile - but since I can't really keep reins on any younger family members once they leave here, I think I'll leave that alone. Besides, that would make my blog appear even more lightly traveled!

Know whatcha mean, Sterc. I thought your red cartoony avatar was a new Disney character, for sure. But I couldn't find it on their website. I finally got them by phone, and they knew about it and told me what it was. They tried to name it Bambi. I reminded them that Bambi was taken, and told them to talk to you about its use.

So you'll probably get a call.

ANNA-LYS........
So - you looked up "Bilderberg", and isn't that interesting - a large group of influential businessmen, politicians, royalty, from all over the world, meeting once a year, secret location,(altho not so secret, it was in Ottawa, Canada this year) -no one is allowed in - no press, photographers - and the more you read about this group,the more terrifying it becomes- they run the world, some say they plan wars, fix prices on world commodities, and very few people know of this organization.
Illuminati - the name of another secret organization - this one goes back a very long time, also interesting reading if you get into the website.
Politics is an area of extreme frustration for me, I try to avoid some of the issues - but in today's world, that is impossible.'
It's in your face everyday, horrifying news of wars, starvation,mass killings - my God, I think I'll get off this subject before you realize my inability to
rest easy in the face of adversity.
This is a source of pain for me.

FANCY - FROM Sweden:
I thank you for bringing up the subject regarding violence against women all over the world. Yes, it is time that we addressed this issue and if we can find some way to work towards the elimination of much of this, I think we need to do it, as we sit comfortably in our environment not subject to this physical and emotional baggage!!
I shall light one small candle this evening, and hope that all women who are subjugated to this practice will find some peace and gentleness in their lives, and perhaps feel love and confidence. These things we take so for granted.
Thanks Fancy, for bringing this situation to the forefront.

"Bilderberg"?
"Illuminati"?

We try to keep a low profile, the plebeians just would not understand.

A sanitised future post of mine:

I had never heard of International Woman's Day until I went to live in a country where women were treated incredibly badly, and subsequent holes that I lived in, where women were also treated appallingly badly, accordingly made a great song and a dance about International Woman's Day.
In China, if you get pregnant outside wedlock and refuse to have an abortion, you are hounded out of your village with people beating you with poles of Bamboo. On International Woman's Day, however, all the neighbourhood will gather and give you bunches of flowers and really ghastly plastic presents, just because you have a uterus, regardless of whether you have used it according to communist law or not. In Russia, your husband will spend most of the year drunk and beating the crap out of you, while his mother shrieks orders at you, delighted that there is someone in the household even more downtrodden than her. On International Woman's Day, however, you can dress yourself up nicely, while all and sundry gather and sing mournful songs about how fantastic women are. And here, in this hole, where women work like oxen, while their lazy men sit about smoking fags and showing their pantaloons to people like me, there are posters all over the place on about "8th March, International Woman's Day". What a load of yucky stuff. I hate "Days" anyway - Mother's Day can fudge right off as well, and so can "Labour Day". If it is not a Holy Day of Obligation, I don't want to know about it.

Goodness gracious, you Swedes just have to learn how to speak English better.

STERCULIAN RHETORIC -
That looks good in caps, doesn't it??
Thanks for your comments on Violence against Women = it is incredibly interesting-you have been witness to this inhumane treatment,whereas the rest of us read about it,and can't imagine the true consequences.
I, like you, have never heard of this special "Day" - certainly it is not prevelant here in our Canada,is it?
And what can we actually do to alleviate the practices - so much of it is cultural, and the norm in many places, while there is the violence suffered at the hands of an alcholic partner,or drug related?
While I sit here, in my comfortable home, not wanting for anything,material or emotional, I can't help my feelings of inadequacy regarding how to help with this situation.
I actually went into websites on this subject, and was totally unprepared for the statistics shown. In the U>S.a woman is raped every 6 minutes, a woman is battered every 15 seconds, and so on.............
And Cambodia is on the list of large scale organized rape as a weapon of war.
What can you do there?
Don't want to get too serious here, but I believe you are an angel of mercy-wanting to aid these people in whatever way you can.
I certainly have something to dwell on here, and thanks again for your input.
Too bad you can't get this on Fancy's blog - she is a crusader for women's rights, and would love to read your comments. Her english is not perfect, but she has a passionate soul!!!
I'm going to need some translation help if you continue to converse with Anna-lys, another one of my
favorites.
And I am not a big fan of Mother's day, or LABOR DAY -THEY SUCK!!!
Oh shit - forgot the 'U',
Have a great day SR

HI aNNA-LYS ....

'AND PLEASE CAN I GET MY BLOG BACK'
I'm not sure what you mean -
Do I have your blog?
I am not computer savy, did I commit a faux pas here?

I don't think SR can post ourside Canada - not sure why - but he did leave some comments on this subject on my blog. If you scroll up 6 or 7 comments from this one, you will find them.
We have all seen battered women - I have been to the home here in my
city which takes them in for short term care - since I am in the cosmeteic industry, I brought them perfumes, moisturers, lotions - stuff to make them feel feminine again, not a punching bag. I hope it helped in some small way.
You are getting lots of action on your blog regarding this, and I'm sure you have made many people aware of this problem - You have done a good job -

But, it was a good joke!!!

Regarding our link-chain: It doesn't change a thing how many comments we get. But, IF many bloggers has made their own blogpost upon the subject ... its like a cyber-manifestation.

Hi Nicole -
Happy to see you around -
I don't really hate Labor Day (without the 'u' 'cause it pisses vd and rs off-they don't like my american tendencies).Actually, Labor day weekend is a family get to gether (is that all one word?)way up north on the rocky shores of Georgian Bay-that really is God's country-water so clean,but cold-unbelieveable rock formations - and on a clear nite, the Milky way, and this year we actually saw the Northern Lights. What an experience!! So,Labour Day is a special time for MMCA and her family.

Christmas is big,big here - I am looking at decorations up already on several homes in my neighbourhood-it's a bit early for me - unless I see snow on the ground I cannot get into the spirit. And then of course, I'm scrambling at the end trying to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of buying for a large family,lots of grandchildren, as well as decorating the homestead. Perhaps I will turn on some Christmas music,have a glass of Merlot-that might get me moving. What do you think???

I promised V.D. a Limerick some time ago - to appease him for my bitching about his avatar and language,which was a problem for me,not a personal one - I have long since reached the age of consent - but I do have some family members who think it is unbelieveable for me to have a blog - I'm old ya know - and could access the site.
Thus the limerick.
She/he probably will not like it - and demand another one. Bastard!!
