Schatzkammer

Yahoo Bablefish tells me that Schatz is treasure and Kammer is Chamber. German to English translation.

I was thinking of calling it "Joe".
Need a name for this thing.
Hints:
I made it from Fir slats about 1/4" x 3"
It was supposed to be a "Shadow Box" for my grand daughter
I'm giving it an old friend for her birthday this evening (she's a wonderful cook).
She is gonna ask me: "What the ---- IS it?"
Any ideas?
Oh, you can see the thing in my "Recent Photos"

This weekend should be interesting. Tloml is working and I get to sit two dogs: Roxy, the Dachshund and Jupiter, the small Bear (Husky but bigger). These two dogs have stayed here together before and I hope they have worked out whatever dog peace treaties are needed.
Another story related to my SIL's experience in Chile:
Another Canuck went to join a sailboat down there in the past week or so and struck up a conversation with the sophisticated mature Chilean sitting beside him. It turned out the Chilean was also an engineer who invited this fellow to the Horse Races. A good time was had by all and the Canuck woke up in his hotel bed. Does not remember anything of the evening out after the hilarity at the Track.
They did not bother with his passport but they got his cards, cash and PIN. I think it was very considerate of them to deliver him back to the bed.
Apparently he caught the boat.

Grothar:
Wrong is OK as long as we are open to information. Hey - I thought I was wrong once but it turned out I was just mistaken.
Crouching under a desk might help if the event you are hiding from is small enough or far enough away.The normal reaction: Running about and shouting, has a poor record of enhancing survival chances in most events.

George Monbiot has a new post this morning. Can't comment on his site but whatever he puts up is worth a read.
I was very much "Anti-Nuke" from way back when my father was the E.M.O. Rep. (emergency measures organization) for the tiny town I grew up in. They even built a "Bunker" by the railway station and we had a box of recycled WW11 paraphernalia including a WW1 steel helmet painted white with a large red cross and a gas mask from about the same year. There were a couple of pencil "Radiac" meters you looked through to see how much radiation had been impinging on the dusty box on a basement shelf. I think there was a Geiger counter too but no one put batteries in it and I was too young to figure that out.
Dad went to a couple of meetings and tried to spread the "Word" around this sleepy farming community.
One day a note was hand delivered to our rural mail box. It listed some sensible moves to make if the "Air Raid Siren" went off. The last instruction was something like this:
14) Hunker down in a depression or a ditch, put your head between your knees and cover your head with your hands and
KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE!
Well, Dad guessed it was one of his buddies that left the note and the Cold War cooled down even further. The old cardboard box in the basement got dustier.
Monbiot's Point: (according to my understanding)
"No decision" about nuclear power is not one of our options.


Remember the air raid drills we had in school. We would hide under the desks. I bet that would have down a lot of good.

Hey, I'm wrong all the time. Just ask Mrs. Grothar! Glad you figured it out. I hate it when I can't think of a word or a name. I usually remember it at 2 AM though.

As a matter of fact: 'Course I do, Pat! Wish we had something to compare with those days up here but about our biggest local Thang is the "Ladysmith Lightup" which is normally cold and rainy or the "Nanaimo Bathtub Race" which is generally drunk.
Now and then a known musician comes to town and we do have our own:

Confirmed by the Quilter:

Charles Bruce Chatwin was born May 13, 1940, near Sheffield, England, to Charles and Margharita (n�e Turnell), both from middle-class families. Charles served in the Royal Navy, and Bruce spent most of the war living with his grandparents. He saw little of his father until the military was demobilized. The Milwards, his grandmother%u2019s family, were world travelers and left the detritus from their wanderings in a Schatzkammer, a cabinet of wonders. Bruce insisted that these treasures first inspired his interest in travel.

Rob:
"No you Don't!"
Mom never gave that advice (Probably 'cause I was a perfect child) so Tloml had to learn it on her own.
However, I did learn to discuss and even argue considerately. At first I used the "Silent Treatment" but found that exacerbated things so I tried "Blow the Doors off" which sorta worked once I crawled back.
Over time Tloml matured to a point where we don't go quite so "Snakey" or at least that's the way I tell it.

I love the tschotske-keeper and I think Schatzkammer is a great name for it -- sounds exotic, special, mysterious.

I also appreciate the craftsmanship involved in getting all those angles to equal a 360 degree symmetrical octagon. I know from experience that's even tougher than it sounds. A gift of something hand-made and well designed and well constructed is one that will be treasured. Well done, YCD!

And now for a woman's perspective, to help you out, Grothar:
Ylee's "Universal Grunt of Affirmation" does work much of the time because often we only want to feel like our babbling is being heard. The Grunt accomplishes that just fine.

However, a Grunt won't suffice when you are asked "Does this dress make me look fat?" Instead, the best answer goes something like this: "You always look lovely to me." You didn't really answer her question, but you said something nice. If that doesn't work and she persists, try, "I'm just a guy. How would I know anything more than how you look to me, which is lovely?" How can any woman argue with that logic???

Another exception to the aforementioned Grunt is when I ask DH to do a task I know he'd really rather not (something more time-consuming than taking out the mastodon bones). Then, the Grunt means, "Yeah, someday real soon." (translation: in your dreams) But if I hear an "Ah, shit." I know he's actually going to do it.

Hope that helps.
...or at least gives you a chuckle.


That did give me a chuckle. Espcially the last line.:) And good advice as well.

Angie and I don't fight. If we can't discuss something like reasonable adults I refuse to participate. Of course, the only reason we've been together for so long is we are very compatible...usually!

Short funny story: My x was hotheaded. I am very calm. I had a bad temper in my early teen years and had to learn to control it. Anyway, one day my x was mad at me she was talking to my mother and said "It makes me feel so stupid when I am yelling and slamming things, I wish Rob would lose his temper, just once."

Mom said, "Oh, no you don't!"

I've learned that very few things in life are really worth arguing about and when you do, the person that stays calm thinks more clearly and therefore has the upper hand.

That's one theory anyway.

Nearly 6pm here. Time to think about supper.

Afternoon Rob: Just drove our friend to YCD airport and took over the looking after Roxy" the Dachshund. Roxy is a bit upset and went into her box to lie down. She'll do fine here but Tloml and I are used to loving our dogs and expecting them to behave our "spoiling" consists mainly of keeping a very close eye on the animal and paying lots of attention but we do not approve of the way some of our friends overdo that stuff. Generally after a stay with us a dog seems to "Grow up". Mind you Roxy will have a few down days I'd imagine and we will certainly make allowances for a few days. More than likely sometime in this 7 week stint here we will also have Jupiter, my daughter's monster Husky. Watching Roxy and Jupiter interact is a hoot.
I had something to say about Questions difficult to answer but I think I will re read BriarCrafts post.
Not sure if Grothar is kidding or not: "Actually, we are very happy. Neither one of us is argumentative. We rarely, if ever, have an argument or even a disagreement."
Only one of us is argumentative but to decide which would likely touch off the "Mother of all Arguments".

ROFL
If I'd have been taught that in my early 20s it would have saved me a boat load of money!

BTW "No, but your sure make that dress look huge" is not an acceptable reply either.

I told Angie a long time ago that I would not lie if she asked me "do I look fat". I lied to my ex and she continued to believe me. A bit satisfying now though because she evidently still believes it and what used to be a cute young thing is now big as a house!

Ylee: I rarely post on Dr. Masters' blog. I assume he knows there are a lot of us out here saying "Thanks Doc" to ourselves and leaving it at that. Some of my best zingers used to be swallowed up there. I usually read a newly posted entry and check the comments for the direction they are headed - sometimes there are some good ones but I missed yours. Happy to get it here. Nah, that's not Levi - he'd have known the cold was coming and dressed warmly.

Fun day in town:
I don't go there often and it is even more rare for Tloml and I to go together. Traffic and shopping malls are simply not my thing.
We had a good time anyway.
What I see in there is so much stuff I have no need for. I bought some batteries for the phone and plumbing parts for the sink and a clean white paper coverall which will be soon sullied to my comfort level.
What is the rest of that stuff for?

I used to enjoy the KatzenJammer Kids. I think that Schatzkammer is the word you were looking for. It means a treasure place or a place were one would store things of importance to them. I have a Swedish masseuse coming over tomorrow. She is about 28, so even if my back does not improve, I shall at least have a smile on my face.

Ylee: Some guys like (or need) that type of love. Tloml has not gone to that extent but I still don't trust her.
One of her favorite stories is about a woman who put up with an abusive wife beater for some years and one night sewed him into the sheets after he had finished beating her and passed out. When she had him well secured she took a 2x4 and whacked the shit out of him. I don't know how that relationship worked out but I am not tempted to research on my own.
The laptop is HP and only (possibly) available up here on line. Some kind of promo for Future Shop. But there were small Pads for less than we paid for the iPod.
I think pretty soon we will be able to get a keyboard that we can run the old TV with and do anything we do here. Actually that is old tech now - but I don't have it yet.

Hi, ycd, good to see your SIL getting everything in order to get back home!

Schatzkammer! I like it!

$650 for a laptop? I know that there are some out there that are worth the money, but I bet you wouldn't find any shopping retail!

Your old buddy kinda reminds me of my dad. Whenever he divorced someone, he was around a lot, but if found himself a potential mate, he'd disappear! Since he's married with no. 6, he's been pretty faithful, but I think he's just scared of her! Think Kathy Bates in that one movie when she has that guy tied down!

Thanks for asking. I've been having a lot of trouble with my back. It is the reason I haven't been on much. A lot of pain, but it is getting better.

The Germans also use the word Vetrine, it is vetrin in Swedish and vitrineskab in Danish and vetrina in Italian. But many now use the English word curio.

This is good for me. I haven't used that word in a long time. It makes me think.

Flying Doctor emailed from YVR. He is back!
Funny serendipitous day:
Went in to town to pick up the re re repaired outboard leg for the boat and then on to get passport pictures.
Visited the lady I will be taking to the airport tomorrow for her trip to R.S.A. and we get to dog sit her Dacshund, Roxy (who we luckily love, and she us) for about two months. 'Course Tloml had a meeting with one of the other "Trustees" so I got to shop - not my strong suite - but I got looking at the cheap laptops and the salesman recommended HP at about $650.
On the highway home we were passed by an old buddy who we have not seen for a few months so we caught up and pulled him over and he came up to the house. He had to hurry down to replace a toilet in one of his rental units south of here so he could not stay long but we caught up a bit. These old codgers we know get a girl friend and we never see them except on the road.

I'm gonna mention this to Grothar.
Last we got from the Wanderer, yesterday, he had some papers and was headed to the airport to catch his original booking. We'll see if he shows up today


It is called a curio, but I think the name you are looking for is a Schatzkammer! It is a colloguial expression used in only a few parts of Germany.

Last we got from the Wanderer, yesterday, he had some papers and was headed to the airport to catch his original booking. We'll see if he shows up today

ycd, do you want the thing to have a feminine name because it's going to a lady? Looks kinda masculine to me! I know, name it a name that can go both ways, like "Leslie"!

Good that SIL got a stop on his credit cards; hopefully he can get his passport and other stuff replaced without a hitch.

When you said Valparaiso, I thought at first he'd gone to Indiana.... :)

Have not heard any more from the "Flying Doctor" and it will likely take a few days to get emergency travel documents and rebook flights.
The naming project is going well though not finalized.
Maybe Bernice.

Pat:
I'll send that on to SIL once he gets his arse back home.
Thing is: He's an M.D. Them boneheads get some fairly high limits on their cards. Good news is the first thing my daughter knew about it was a call from the bank 'cause the cards were being run this morning and they allowed her to at least put an "Hold" on transactions.

Way down South in Dixie.


There are NO accidents Ken

remember,

I have wept for one world. I refuse to weep for another.

Do not be troubled. Do not back down. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

The Timewave Technicians are with you.

I'll show this blog to her this evening and she can decide. It occurs to me that she could quilt a back for the "shadow Box" in a pattern like the Celtic Cross (or anything she wants).

You won't believe this:
The lady I'm giving this thing to is an avid Quilter. We built her studio a couple of years ago for just that: 28'x28' and barely enough room for the huge sewing machine table.

Pherenice's Octagon



Celtic cross Pendant

Traditionally Celtic knot-work represents eternal life because it has no beginning and no end. The use of the cross in Celtic culture predates Christianity. The horizontal axis symbolizes the earthly realm while the vertical axis represents the spiritual realm. Meditation on this symbol can bring serenity, grace and confidence.
