Happy Hump Day from arctic (presently “18 -- feels like 11”) yet Happy Larryville, GN

Cats and social media; heh.

TeX and Sven --

I just learned that Death Metal has its roots in the ragtime era; who knew?

Huh. I could look it up but I, pretty lazy this morning: why is it called ragtime?

The skeletons playing the piano would make a nice Capodimonte.

Who stole the Midnight Oil thread?

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!
Good luck with the dentist, Mac! I know how you feel.

The last time there was a problem with the MO, WordPress had the post marked “failure to post” or some such. I clicked the publish button and it posted.

I like the idea of a capodimonte lamp with skeletons playing a piano. It would look great next to Fatwa’s black sofa.

And the failure is tied to racism, Mac. Good luck with the dentist; reminds me that I best make an appointment as well.

And good morning, guys. Late manners are I guess better than no manners at all.

Sven --

The term “ragtime” originated from the (for the era) very syncopated “ragged” rhythms of the style. Which were deemed by many “decent” people as vulgar, crude and capable of arousing any number of forbidden desires; I shit you not.

Mac --

Hope all goes as well as possible re teh dentist.

I had the same experience a couple of days ago with a thread which didn’t post; just clicked “Publish” and there it was. (I blame Bush and teh Jooooooooos.)

I like the idea too. Then again, I like weird sh¡t. 😉

Oy. I’ve been meaning to finish this post all day, and the day got away from me.
‘Morning, Afternoon, and Evening to all y’all!

Maybe more later if I can…

Love y’all.
