    Aww Beatrix toe bean fest! And yes she has a very good point. Why didn’t anyone think to ask her to find out what a blizzard was?

    Think fast, boys! (Hint: the correct answer is “Because we’re very silly – we’re also very sorry, Beatrix. Please share some things you know about blizzards from your thorough research.”)

    Salty is slang for annoyed now? Sigh. Why even try to keep track?

    There’s salt of the earth, and salty dog (which I’ve heard said as just salty and applied to other professions), but now there’s JUST salty? Why can’t they make up their own words? That way, I’ll KNOW when I’m confused, instead of being confused about confused!

    Here’s one from way back: Nat King Cole’s You’re the Cream in My Coffee

    Bea brings the tea* to the newsroom

    Always sharp and with it

    Bea is always so on point*

    She is really quite lit!

    …….

    Guys, try not to be basic,*

    You can all be the goat*

    Just remember your orb friends,

    Then you can all be woke!*

    …….

    The blizzard was ginormous*

    But it all worked out for us

    The storyline was so sick*

    It really was so was epic*

    …….

    Bea brings the tea* to the newsroom

    Always sharp and with it

    Bea is always so on point*

    She is really quite lit!

    …….

    Modern day translation of slang:

    *tea-news

    On point-outstandig

    lit-cool, awesome

    basic-mainstream

    goat-greatest of all time

    woke-aware

    ginormous-huge

    sick-amazing

    epic-highly enjoyable

    Very nice to see you and hear from you, Beatrix!

    Don’t know much about blizzards – see

    Don’t know much slang – who/what’s salty?

    Don’t know much about snowstorms – forsooth

    Don’t know much about lizards, in truth

    But we do know that we can always ask you

    And we know that you’ll tell us, too

    What a wonderful world with our Bea!

    Beatrix, here’s a bit of good advice from the father of a highly accomplished daughter. Don’t wait to be asked. Provide the group with needed information in a clear strong voice. Some will not listen. Those who do will be become valued colleagues.

    The salty discussion drove me to google. Salty recently came to mean annoyed but there’s a centuries old usage. It began with salty in cooking and then slipped into the salty sea . In the 1800’s it referred to sailors (as in Old Salt) and that led to referring to sailor’s swearing. So it stayed with referring to anger “salty language” and then I think it dropped out of sight only to reemerge as the milder annoyed or irritated.

    Welcome to Lost Penny Day. Will anyone even notice? Does anyone actually use pennies any more? A penny is now worth ~1/7 th of it’s value in 1968, ~1/9 th of its value in 1956. I’d need a dime to buy the piece of penny candy I bought in 1956—and that piece of candy has also gotten smaller. Does anyone care if they lose a penny?

    On the other hand …

    When I was in high school, circa 1968, it was the fashion among certain groups of that age to throw pennies at someone as a sign of contempt, especially for those of the “nerd” and “geek” persuasion. Picking them up confirmed that contempt. I knew a fellow who always picked them up, every one of them, while enduring the jeers of the throwing cretins.

    He paid for his first year college textbooks with that money, and they were nearly as outrageous in price then as they are now. (No, it wasn’t me. I was a very strange being in high school: both “jock” and “geek.” I never threw pennies at anyone.)

    It is also Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. He was one of the best Presidents the US has ever had, and a bare-knuckle politician who would make all of our recent crops of those noxious, weedy characters weep with shame and frustration—as he sometimes did in his own time.

    …they don’t even make pennies anymore here in Canada, however, if i see any coins on the ground, I always pick them up. We didn’t have much money when I was a kid – as a result, to me it seems almost criminal to leave any money just laying on the ground…

    Just yeet the older kitties out of there or nope out, yourself, With-It Kitten! (“Yeet” = throw someone out violently, “Nope”= you realize that the place you are going is dangerous/scary, you then say, “Nope, nope,” then you nope right out of there.) YouTube comment sections are very informative for us old f*rts.

    Beatrix has every right to annoyed. What is the point of having a fact checker if you don’t use them.

    Although, I was a huge fan of the idea that the blizzard was a high level wizard, and Puck with his pointer come walking stick.
