changed username to BobS Daniel Bienvenu: hello Bob! BobS: hi kids rich-c: think it was part of the same system we'er in now, Guy rich-c: for some reason most of the rain and storms went by Toronto either to the north or south BobS: most bypassed us too......until last night and we got about 3/4" of it BobS: slept right on thru it....like a baby
moved to room Meeting Place rich-c: we were watching deluges wander along maybe 30 miles from us, on the weather radar james: ah yes.. the proverbial baby.. the only baby in my experience that actually sleeps

Anyway, welcome BobS: yes, the other night, we lucked out but south of us they had 3-6" of rain and flooding BobS: from home mon Judy: Hi, Everyone Judy: Michighan Guy B.: Hi Bob and Judy BobS: came in on a stealth storm my man BobS: anyway Richard, did you get my revised price????? rich-c: when we went out shopping at noon it was sunny and 28° - now after teh rain it's 18° and dropping
moved to room Meeting Place BobS: same her richard........got humid and hot, then cold and humid rich-c: yes and it still has me mystified - sounds like it is based on at least four hours labour for a less than half hour job Judy: the temp is falling here too, but a welcome change
changed username to Ronald james: we finally just warmed up rich-c: were you dealing with a ral service writer or just someone who didnt understand the question, so to speak? james: one of the coolest mays on record BobS: you could have all the yuck we have now James...got a bucket? james: my bucket is already full of yuck :P Ronald: Good evening all you fine looking people rich-c: do they have a website and email address, Bob?

changed username to Dr. D. Guy B.: Hi Ron rich-c: hello Rich Ronald: Hi Guy Dr. D.: hi all Dr. D.: I am a bit under the weather tonight Ronald: evening Dr. D. rich-c: oh? what bit you, Rich? Judy: Hi, Dr D Dr. D.: some respiratory bug that started Monday morning Guy B.: Hi Dr. D. Dr. D.: It has been so hot...bleh Ronald: Hot rum, Dr. D. - till you can't see the end of the bed Guy B.: Weather's great. Dr. D.: it was 45 C in the car on the way back from Toronto Tuesday -- A/C not working in the car :-( rich-c: are you sensitive to smog, Rich? Dr. D.: Your air smelled terrible Richard, even though I know it is blowing up from the US james: hello dr Dr. D.: Alternately smelled like vinegar, burning tires, or sewage all the way to Buffalo james: i thought toronto was self-sufficient for smog rich-c: yes, well over half our crud originates in the Ohio valley Ronald: You guys in Toronto got one of those inversions going again? Dr. D.: Air here in Cleveland today is okay, but it is still too hot rich-c: but much of it blows over Cleveland to get to us so you should have it worse Ronald: yuch! BobS: ok......1-616-662-9090 @ 2000 Chicago Dr SW ...... Jenison, MI or Hudsonville, MI ......not sure which tiny city it belongs to Judy: it was a little cooler here today, only 85 rich-c: no, but did have a very large wrm air mass - have a cold front passing through now, with suitable fireworks Dr. D.: In any case, I was in Toronto on short notice this weekend due to unexpected opportunity to talk to an immigration lawyer Ronald: ah, thank the Good Lord for the cool rainy west coast Guy B.: Hi Folks, I'm still here, but I'm chatting with a very special girl. But, I'll keep up here. Dr. D.: Rin and I got some good info. BobS: and ?????? rich-c: OK Bob got it copied, many thanks - I can cope from here - have a 5¢ per minute phone plan BobS: tis easier for you to immegrate to canada than for Rin to come to US ????? Dr. D.: We will get married in Windsor, then I file paperwork to bring her over...but she has to stay in Canada until it is processed, 6-8 months. Dr. D.: Dissolution final hearing is 11 July. BobS: for honeymoon purposes, that sucks sir............. Judy: that sounds like the pits to me BobS: course you can still visit back and forth Dr. D.: Assuming we can get suitable documentation in paper form, we are hoping to have the wedding first, at latest second week of August. Dr. D.: After that is too close to start of classes etc. BobS: this year ????? Dr. D.: The sooner the wedding, the sooner the 6-8 month clock can start ticking. Dr. D.: Yes Bob. Dr. D.: But it all depends on when the court here actually will generate the paper version of the dissolution--that will be needed in order to get Ontario wedding license. james: it's too bad there is no mechanism to make it easier for canadians and americans in this situation Dr. D.: This is the only way to guarantee that Rin will have a green card when she comes over. Dr. D.: To do it the reverse, her come here and get married, she can't work for 3 years. rich-c: be interesting to see what would happen if she just applied for a green card on her own ;-) Dr. D.: And that is unacceptable on all fronts. james: the relationship is not the same as other countries' Ronald: sounds like quite a maze Dr. D.: It would be less hassle were I to emigrate to Canada, but that is impossible for work and family reasons, otherwise I would have considered it. Guy B.: Has anyone have their payment for the con coming? I have Dale's on the way and me. rich-c: hope you got an honest immigration lawyer - there is a plague of charlatans around Dr. D.: It is a maze, Ron, but Rin and I are committed to navigating it. Ronald: of course Dr. D.: This guy is best friend of one of the lawyers in Steve Peters' office. Dr. D.: He is clueful. rich-c: I have my time consumed with other issues, Guy, but hope to get to the bank to get the money order soon BobS: governments have this....rather strange way of showing compassion and respect for their own citizens Ronald: I'll get that off to you tomorrow Guy. Thanks for the reminder. It had slipped what passes for my mind rich-c: well, there's nothing like treating everyone equally Dr. D.: I must tell you, Guy, that at this point, I think it unlikely that Rin and I will be able to attend the convention...if we come at all, it would only be for Saturday and Sunday. Guy B.: Ok, no problem. I'll update my spreadsheet. rich-c: once Canadians need passports to enter the US, Americans will need them too to go home after a trip out of the country Dr. D.: Yes, it is stupid poor excuse for looking like there is border security, totally sham. rich-c: I haven't had time to talk to Amy yet, Guy, about our extra four days - but they should count towards your convention contract james: not to mention it doesn't really solve anything, since if i recall the terrorists were already in the u.s, legally no less Ronald: exactly James Dr. D.: It is a joke, James. rich-c: well, that's what they get for electing the wrong party james: twice, no less james: not that canada can claim any better BobS: all this security is just to pi$$ off the public, at least it seems that that fact is the only real outcome of it Ronald: Would it have made any difference? BobS: no rich-c: some folks are slow learners - though there are doubts about the first time, still Daniel Bienvenu: I,m back BobS: andn then we have William Clinton............ BobS: politics is another entirely different world kids Daniel Bienvenu: hi judy BobS: one I do NOT want to enter Ronald: Read an article in this mornings National Post about Mr. Clinton's budding friendship with Belinda Stronach Daniel Bienvenu: hello Dr.d rich-c: yes, he certainly seems to be doing a lot to salvage American goodwill abroad these days Daniel Bienvenu: hi Ron! Dr. D.: Hi Daniel. BobS: heck I don't even want to see it !!!!! Judy: hi, Daniel Ronald: Salut Monsieur Daniel Bienvenu: salut à vous! Ronald: above a picture of them both, it said, "Is this Bubba's new Blonde?" BobS: that was my thought when you typed it Ron BobS: another bimbo ?????? Ronald: yeah BobS: oh boy.............let's talk intellegently now rich-c: I would not pay much attention to sleazy right-wing gossip mags Judy: yes, he was not our finest hour james: rich, you're an ann coulter fan, i presume ;) Dr. D.: We are hoping that cost of wedding + immigration will be $1000-$1500. Daniel Bienvenu: here... it's raining... a little storm... not enough to turn off my computer. rich-c: don't you have a surge protector on your power bar, Daniel? Dr. D.: Dissolution should be within $1500, maybe a bit over, but no surprises from initial estimates. Ronald: I have little faith left in politicians from either side of the border rich-c: bet I could come up with less, Ron Judy: usually it is the lesser of two evils Dr. D.: Richard is more cynical than any of us :-) rich-c: been around longer, seen more Daniel Bienvenu: yes, I have a huge power bar that said "protection" on it... but I don't want to experiment it. Ronald: thank God we don't get as much government as we pay for BobS: faith in politicians.......now THERE is an oxymoron BobS: very true Ron rich-c: you are likely OK with it, Daniel Ronald: still trying to figure out what kind of session to work up for the 'con rich-c: you need whole-house surge suppression to cope with a direct hit, but a moe distant strike what you have should be fine Ronald: any suggestions? Dr. D.: Comparison of all the computers you've ever had in your snake-pit, that would be interesting. Dr. D.: You have used more different platforms than any of us, could provide informed compare/contrast. Ronald: hmmm. james: how old is the adam now? 22? Ronald: now there's a thought Daniel Bienvenu: I think our house is not grounded... I think the electric here is old and not safe. rich-c: yeah, that way no one else would need to volunteer for anything - Ron could fill every session Dr. D.: I know Rin liked Neil's history stuff, it would be more history. rich-c: and still have content left over! Guy B.: I thought it is 23. Ronald: thank you Dr. D. I might just run with that Ronald: 2006-1983 Dr. D.: It certainly would be stuff nobody has heard before at an ADAMcon. rich-c: I've noticed most Quebec houses still seem to have lightning rods, at least in the rural areas Ronald: I don't have as many now, but the memories linger Dr. D.: Memories are good enough, you are not writing Wikipedia entries :-) BobS: and linger, and linger Ronald: true james: hmm.. so 22 or 23 depending on when it was first available, or are we counting from conception? Dr. D.: EOS source listing begins June or July 1983 Dr. D.: IIRC james: :D Ronald: that sounds like a good enough peg Ronald: for the beginning, I mean rich-c: yeah, now it's old enough to drink - and jpin you when it drives you to it

Dr. D.: A distant 3rd IMHO, Richard Ronald: out here, pushpins are invaluable Ronald: but then, so is duct tape and WD-40 rich-c: well, we approach things diffwerently north of the border, Rich Daniel Bienvenu: at my job, there is a real star wars fan. each time we talk he said something from one of the star wars film like "prepare my ship" or "I can read your mind" Dr. D.: Viva la difference (or however it is spelt) rich-c: wonder where Pam and Erin have got to? james: differences are good, without them we wouldn't learn much
BobS confirmed ban Dr. D.: Erin is not feeling well tonight either, I was on the phone with her a bit before logging in here. Dr. D.: Pam, I dunno. james: i think things would be quite boring rich-c: yes, Star Wars and STar Trek and a few others have big fan bases among the younger generation Ronald: speaking of the Force, I went to see the DaVinci Code Monday night Ronald: Can't understand for the life of me what all the fuss is about Daniel Bienvenu: I saw the "davinci code" movie too rich-c: is it as much of a turkey as the critics say? Dr. D.: Rin and I saw it 2 weeks ago, it is bleh Ronald: I mean it was a good movie, and I enjoyed it, but it remains Fiction Dr. D.: I never read the book, she did though Ronald: I bought the book, but gave it to my daughter-in-law Dr. D.: For a "treasure hunt" movie, it is not so good..."National Treasure" was IMHO loads better. BobS: so you all say the hype will not make a moneymaker of it ??????? Dr. D.: And there is really sick and sadistic stuff in it, too. Not my cup of tea. rich-c: I gather teh book itself is quite a good read Ronald: Oh, I'm an easy pushover for any type of story line like that, and I'll buy just about anything Tom Hanks does Ronald: suspended my critical faculties Daniel Bienvenu: I only regret to not have enough time for imagination, trying to figure out what is the solution for the thing with lettres. Ronald: Found myself chasing down Opus Dei in my Encarta Dr. D.: For worshippers of "Bloom County"? Dr. D.: <runs> rich-c: there is some reason, I gather, to suspect the DVC portayal of it is very fictional Guy B.: Opus Dr. D.: could not resist the bad pun Daniel Bienvenu: my friends will not go see this movie because (they said) "Tom Hanks is not a good choice for this movie, not credible". Ronald: ohhhh! Ronald: forgive me, I'm a little slow Dr. D.: "Bloom County" has been gone for about 15 years now, so no prob rich-c: some think he is the only thing the flick has going for it

Daniel Bienvenu: long time no chat Dale Ronald-Life-2: Hi Dale rich-c: well, the critics haven';t savaged it the way they did DVC BobS: heard it was Ron Daniel Bienvenu: it's raining here! Dale: Being unemployeed takes way too much time. I swear I had more free time when I was working. Dr. D.: We didn't get back until 7:30 PMish, but we went straight to Perkins for supper. Dale: Very long time. Pamela: so you avoided evening rush - probably just as well Ronald-Life-2: you unemployed Dale? Dale: I was in Vienna, Austria Dale: I was in Graz Austria Dale: I was jet laged Dr. D.: We stayed off the 401, came up Eglinton. Dale: Then I had Jeffrey's soccer game.

Dr. D.: See the sights, windows down. Pamela: I was worried about evening rush, but realized that all those people leaving downtown at 5:00 wouldn't be near home until after six. I had smooth sailing all the way (all 10 minutes of it). Dale: Sort of unemployeed. I'm setting up a new business, for which I'll be hiring employees in the fall.
