PostNakia's Babblings

Hi y'all,

This will just be a rambling blog where I post up what ever is on my mind. Similar to a status report. You know "the weather is terrible". Whatever is on my mind...

Sue, I tried taking a shot of the front yard and the back yard. I don't know if it shows the size though. Smile The house gets in the way and I am not a great at photography. It is pure luck when I get a really good shot.
Here is what I have plus another shot of the front entrance room. I really love seeing all those plants.

Hi Nakia;

Nice big raised garden, lots of room to grow a lot of vegetables. I would say, Mark has been very busy.

The other one should bloom in a few days. The nights are still chilly so I want to wait before planting them in the garden.

ION: I get my new cell phone Wednesday or Thursday.

Hi Nakia;

Here is my 1st Amaryllis this Spring.

It is in my front yard. There are some more just about to open in the back, and they will be a lot bigger blooms.

I am bored. I do have something to work on for Dragon Captions but am having a hard time getting started. The weather is still chilly here although Friday the temp is due to go up to 75F 24C. We are slated for rain tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night.

Hi Nakia;

We have had some of the kind of weather that makes it nice to live in Texas, but I have a feeling it will start to get hot soon, and Hurricane season is just around the corner.

Hurricanes. I am now dreading the hurricane season. I think your season starts earlier than ours. August is usually when we start getting them and those big storms with gale force winds.

After a beautifully sunny and warm bank holiday weekend, we're due gale force winds and rain today. It's back to feeling cold too.

Hi Sue;

Well it's supposed to be bad weather in Mablethorpe, most of the time.

I suggest you move to Texas, the Weather is interesting, and varied. sunny

Don't listen to him, Sue. Come to South Central Shore New Jersey we can present you lots of variety and an occasional Frankenstorm Sandy.

Hi Sue;

Well it's a North West Climate, lots of rainy days, and because it is so far North, the days can get pretty short in the Winter. We get about 40 to 60 inches of rain a year, but it comes in more than a mist, or lite rain. Lots of Thunder and heavy rain mostly.

Success is sweet. I have been struggling trying to find the right voice for a female Orc cook NPC that a modder wants. Close not but not quite right then I did and this was his response. "GOD DAMN you did it!!!" That's what I like about men they don't pussy foot around. They don't play games. Well most of them don't.

Now if I could only figure out how to get rid of the motor noise from outside. If it isn't raining Mark is going to try and insulate the window make the room more sound proof.

Smile Yes, it was and the best part is that it is natural so can can be done easily and used if the NPC has a continuing part. I don't have to worry about copying something I did weeks or even months previously.

Our storm season has started with a mild thunderstorm that knocked out the power almost immediately. It has been coming back on and the off since yesterday afternoon. This does not portend well for the summer.

A couple of photos of the Boardwalk.
This one shows bags of cotton candy hanging on display.

Just a little update.  Thursday I go to the low-vision doctor.  That is in the afternoon.  Early in the morning I go to the retina specialist.  If I have to have an injection that may mean the low-vision doctor will not be able to test the eye.  Mark made the appointment and didn't want to change it.  Time will tell.  We will take the report from the retina specialist so at least he will have that.

Not everyone likes Shakespeare partly because he is forced on students and there is simply no way they can relate to him. He has been some sort of master and people think of him belonging to the intelligentsia rather than the mass of people. He actually wrote the people and was popular with the unwashed masses. He wrote in the language of that time. I heard this interview on the PR station I listen to. These two men, father and son, have researched the orginal pronunciation of the words he used. No matter which English speaking country we live in or come from what we speak is modern English. The posh UK accent is relatively new. In fact English was the common or vulgar language the elite spoke French or Latin and only used English to communicate with the masses, the commoners.

Wot!? I'm a commoner!?! My given language is vulgar!?! Damn and blast it! What about tea cups and dainty sandwiches on the lawn? Little fingers in the air etiquette etc.

To be fair, I consider myself to be working class i.e. common or ordinary; but my parents would beg to differ. They consider they were upwardly mobile as they got out of rented accommodation by buying a house and my father was self employed in the film industry.

By the way Nakia, how did you get on at the low-vision Doctors?

Re the word vulgar - from the Wikipedia:
[quote="Vulgar means "common" or "pertaining to ordinary people", and can refer to: Vulgar or common language, the vernacular speech of a region or a people Vulgar Latin, common Latin as distinguished from literary or Classical Latin Vulgarism, an instance of non-standard or non-elite usage in a language, not to be confused with "vulgarity" as a synonym for "obscenity" or "profanity" A vulgar fraction in mathematics, one written in the common way and not as a decimal fraction"]

I go back to the low vision doctor on May 1st.

In French, "vulgariser" means explain in simple terms. I don't know if the same word is used in English.

No, in US English the word vulgar has come to mean unrefined or coarse in common usage.The orginal meaning was simply the the language of the common people as opposed to the language of the elite or the scholars. Or as you say "vulgariser" means explain in simple terms, to use the language understood by the masses. Shakespeare used that language.
