  1. Boardgames - suggestions please

    Risk is available in multiple languages. So if you already have the English Language Version you can add a version in a language your House Guests speak and everybody can engage in world conquest in their native language, adding a level of authenticity the inventors probably never foresaw. GEM

    Many girls of that age range [which includes my granddaughters] are infatuated with the clothing lines sold at Target, so a Gift Card would be an appreciated gift. GEM

    After a long day of cutting Statis for Rose Float decoration my wife and I went to Stat's in Pasadena, Ca., which is a locally renowned source for good quality Christmas Decorations. Among our acquisitions is a tinware Santa Face with blinking led lights. Didn't put batteries in until today as the traffic on the 210 fwy was moving at under 10mph for many miles due to a major accident along our route of travel, making our getting home an arduous trip of several hours duration. No blinking lights. In fact, no lights at all. So the major project for tomorrow has become trekking back to Pasadena to perform an exchange. At which time it is likely more Christmas Goodies will be found. GEM

    Somehow, I get the feeling the comments have drifted far away from upside down Christmas Trees. GEM

    Depends on what access the feline residents have to the attic area. GEM

    Please note that all the dangly bits must be no less than 18" beyond the maximum leap range of all feline residents. GEM

    Most of the vector graphics games are dead and just fond memories due to the failure of a critical component in the monitors that is long out of production. If you find one that is still in working order, treasure it, particularly if it's one of the color graphics games. GEM

    Like with nearly every other business, the more they spend on ballyhoo the harder they are trying to cover up their deficiencies. Guess which insurance company outspends all others on "donating" radar sets to traffic enforcement units? I'll crazy glue my lips and fingers now. GEM

    Bunch of fans in SoCal are probably making plans to perform a Death Star Run on a theater in Burbank. No sound for first 20 minutes of movie and the theater refused to restart the picture, for a house full of advance pre-sale ticket holders. http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2017/12/15/star-wars-fans-storm-theater-lobby-over-lack-of-sound-during-last-jedi/ GEM

    Even worse, an arrogant disregard for the safety procedures and the enforcement of same. GEM

    Finally. More or less caught up. Yesterday took a sudden right turn when I received an email from one of the Model Railroad groups I follow/am affiliated with. Seems family of a deceased Model Railroader had turned residue of a lifetimes collecting and hobbying over to club for disposition. One of members had in garage and was first come first served, take whatever you want as whatever remained by next trash day would be going in dumpster for final disposal. I imediately made arrangements with custodian and wife and I made trip "over the hill" with empty boxes partially filling back seat. By time we made it over hill someone else had already been there and took all of tools and DVDs, which was OK with me as my incentive to make trip was 9 heavy notebooks filled with old [circa 1950s and 60s] Model Railroader Magazine. Picked up those, half a dozen VHS tapes and a large quantity of misc. "projects" and pieces and parts. Plus some very hard to find dual gauge track. Have part of stuff put away and still figuring out where to stash rest. Nice early Christmas Present. Now back to project at hand, which is constructing out of foamboard suitable boxes for dropper bottles of Reaper Paints. I've got a pretty solid design worked out that holds a 9 x 12 grid of paint bottles that will store easily and display bottles in an easy to work with fashion. All for now. Play Nice. GEM

    Not a whole lot of chickens in the normal range of the white version, with the pictured fur also outside of the range of the specified parameters. GEM Extremely pretty though.

    Wait till next Halloween Season and you can save $150 or more off of that price. GEM

    You are a Cleric! You care about others more then yourself. You do not like to see any suffer in your presence. Kindness is your ally but is also your most unsettling enemy. You keep the party together through the power of Does anyone require healing? GEM Just announced that the Moody Blues have Finally been elected to teh Rock andRoll Hall of Fame. GEM Who has literally worn out Moodies albums on vinyl.

    If it was one of the ones that runs on four feet and is generally characterized as a crafty and clever creature, the enemy of chicken farmers everywhere, then it must be a redhead. GEM
