<H2><font color="plum">Cloudy's Cafe</font></H2>

Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

<H3>this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone</H3>

* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner

* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!

* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)

* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.

Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

<font color="pink">The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.</font>

Evening all, how's everyone? We managed to miss the snow up here, but we got arctic cold air in exchange (-5F without the wind chill last night). They say it'll be near 40 F by the weekend. Here's hoping *crosses fingers*
Quite the interesting bit of chatter going on in the cafe tonight with all the rapping and all. That's what I love about it, you never know what to expect when you walk through the door.
Kat, glad to see you're still online and that you're getting to see more of your Dad.
Hi Arion, wherever you are :D

Hey, Jen, glad you are still condescending to waitress us clueless "adults" (boy, I hope you are still around when you turn 21.) Actually, I hope that I am still around when you turn 21! Have a good time, and best of luck, anyhow! [img]graemlins/kiss.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/blueblink.gif[/img]

Hey Att! I have a medical question for you. (It's not for you Willow since a knife isn't involved :D ) My wife's blood sugar level is above 2000. The doctors are saying that it is probably caused by all the steroids they are pumping into her. Have you ever heard of steroids causing diabetes-like symptoms?

Attalus 02-16-2003 10:21 PM

Antryg, yep, all of the corticosteroids cause both insulin resistance and glucagon production, so elevate the blood glucose. And, btw, I took out my first appendix before <font color=deeppink>Willow</font> was born. I have shoes older than her. [img]tongue.gif[/img] Not to speak of the W&W Forum.(*(^&^%$#. *Here he lapses into unfortunate total illegibility, probably due to the martinis he has drunk.* CV, don't even start! [img]graemlins/blueblink.gif[/img]

antryg 02-16-2003 10:35 PM

Thanks Att. I'm not feeling a great deal of confidence since my wife has been in the hospital since last Monday, I've never talked to the same doctor twice, and our primary care physician isn't involved at all. What makes it really frustrating is that they can't decide if she is experiencing asthma or emphesema-like symptoms that will get better in the sweet bye-and-bye.

Ensure there are plenty of toys to play with.

Hey All! [img]graemlins/happywave.gif[/img]

Spent the day assembling and playing with my new toy - 5.5 HP snowblower!!!
*emails Piestrider back to Attalus* Thanks for the loan Att!!

Ya know, I was just out 4 hrs ago clearing the driveway and street with the new toy and already it looks as if I did squat! Lady Blue you would love it. It's that light fluffy powder, perfect for boarding.

BTW, could I get an Irish coffe? [img]graemlins/hehe.gif[/img]

Cloudbringer 02-16-2003 10:54 PM

Hi everyone! Antryg,I really do hope your wife is better soon! I too, have heard of diabetic reactions to steroid meds (had a diabetic cat, believe it or not!).

Going to play some games and get to bed soon, just checking in.

antryg 02-16-2003 10:59 PM

Thanks SnowCloud! I'll be sure to tell my wife that you had a cat with the same symptoms as her. I'm sure she will be amused. If she isn't can I trade you for the cat? :D I hope you had a great weekend and a good visit with friends.
