  •  peraspera, whatever has become of your Tip Jar ? (6+ / 0-)

    thread-jackers: be a-warned... this bird has a beak powered by muskles... and knows how to use it.

    re mess spreading worldwide ? incomprehensibly bad.
    we're due for alien invasion, and they can take me, too.

    •  Wonderful to see you popping in (6+ / 0-)

      to see us but I don't understand your comment about my tip jar. It shows up in Safari and Firefox on my Mac running OS Lion. However, CT did update the site last night so maybe it broke something.

    •  Hi, gb... got your messages the other day, (7+ / 0-)

      and have a letter in the works to send to Rep. Markey, for what good it will do...

      Have called his office before - they were really nice and helpful, even to someone not from his district.

      It's only automatic (and says "tip jar") if you don't change it...

      You know, you could just post Tip Jar on the subject line of your first comment, with no text, and it would be a tip jar you could reply to...

      •  no replies to tip jar makes for easier separation (5+ / 0-)

        of cheese and mustard. the new tj only allows rec or hide.
        u CANT reply. or it did when it was the new tj.

        anyhow.

        if you/we get a good response from markey's office, that shows how pro we were. (proudly beaming)

          the mustard, even if there are two spoons...

          rubyr (and others, I think) have gotten real replies, but he's not the head of the enviro committee anymore, IIRC.

          Hell, the reason being I don't think the committee exists now...

          And I think it was Rep. Markey that got better/more ROV feeds for us when the BP gremlins cut our access. What we got wasn't great, but better than nothing...

          •  When the committee was still in force, we (5+ / 0-)

            were able to call and talk to real people about our troubles.

            It was the result of one of these calls and a great em written by Yas that got the feeds restored the one time (there are those that would argue with this description of events).

            Markey is grand. They just knew how powerful and dedicated he is and made sure to shut him down.
