Happy Birthday Contagion

UPDATE: T1G says that "Bloodyspite has set up a chat for you blog crawlers..." just put in a name and press the login button. Enjoy!

I can't believe it wasn't long ago that I was sending Contagion names for his blog. Now he is getting older himself. And to celebrate it will be the Blogcrawl of 2007.

While I will try to participate, sleep and children seem to cause an issue to staying up too late for anything. But I will certainly enjoy it the next day. Fun fun for everyone. Join on in when you can tonight... it can get interesting. And if I do make it... I will be...

included is a barf bag, water and some febreeze spray. Enjoy!

Nope, no roommate unless you count my first hubby.

The one I remember was from Nebraska to Guam with stops in Seattle and Hawaii. (stole this from my sister, but I actually do remember this plane ride... we almost turned around and went back to Hawaii since the back doors didn't shut correctly).

UPDATE From my mom: We did turn around and go back .............Mom

It's Not Fair!

Why??? Why??? When my children have the day off from school they get up at 5:45am? I can't get them to wake up at 6:10am on school days (though I do enjoy waking them up) and the one day we can sleep in without a worry... they wake up. ARGHHHHHHHHHH....

Then again, to watch boys dance to THIS VIDEO makes it fun.

I am overloaded today... hence, I'm just going to put some humor out here.

Why men shouldn't do advice columns:

Dear Walter:

I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than a few hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.

When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was parading in front of the wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and high-heel shoes, and he was wearing my make up.

I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed in my lingerie because he couldn't find his own underwear. But when I asked him about the make up, he broke down and admitted that he'd been wearing my clothes for six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him.

He was let go fro m his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant.

I don't feel I can get through to him anymore. Can you please help?


Mrs. Sheila Usk


Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber. I hope this helps.

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind Of Makes You Proud To Be American, DOESN'T IT?

Nose and Drinking

Tot and I had a 'discussion' today. On the lines of:

Mom: Tot stop crying over the lid not going down.
Tot: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Mom: Tot stop it or I'll send you straight to your room when you get home
Tot: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Mom: One
Mom: Two
Tot: Fine, I'm going to drink my water
Mom: **blink** ok.
**brief moment of silence**
Tot: Mom, it won't go up my nose.
Mom: Huh?
Tot: I can't drink my water through my nose. I want to drink it through my nose.
Mom: **glances in rearview mirror and sees water bottle up to Tot's nose and him trying to pour water in nose** uhhhhhhhhh **Bou Blink**
Mom: Tot, is it going down your throat through your nose?
Tot: Nope
Mom: Chances are your nose is not made for drinking water.
Tot: oh.

**glances in rearview mirror over the next 10 minutes just to look at Tot**
**blinks in disbelief as he continues to figure out a way to drink water through his nose**

Mental Note: Never ever let children drink some of my drink. Never.

Girl or grown Woman?

My mom sent me this... and it is very appropriate!

Here's to all you grown women...

Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits.

Girls want to control the man in their life.
Grown women know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Girls check you for not calling them.
Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn't.

Girls are afraid to be alone.
Grown women revel in it-using it as a time for personal growth.

Girls ignore the good guys.
Grown women ignore the bad guys.

Girls make you come home.
Grown women make you want to come home.

Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Girls try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e., don't want him hanging with his friends).
Grown women realize that a lil' bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special-and goes to kick it with her own friends.

Girls think a guy crying is weak.
Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Grown women know that - that was just one man.

Girls fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all 'signs'.
Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, doesn't always love you back-and move on, without bitterness.

Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Grown women will read this and pass it on to other Grown women and their male friends.

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail."

Which are you (if you are female)?
A Girl or Grown Woman?

Larry Bird versus Word Bird

Life is always entertaining at my house. Tot was scanning through the TV guide that is on the TV. Yes, he does know how to use the tv flicker. He saw a listing for Larry Bird. And I hear him hollaring to me...

Tot: Mom, Mom... I want to watch Word Bird
Mom: Word Bird? On TV?
Tot: Yaa Mom, right here. How to I watch Word Bird?
Mom: **blinks** I don't see Word Bird on the listing.
Tot: Mommmmmm...
Mom: Oh... That is Larry Bird. See the L. LLLLL Larry not Word.
Tot: oh.

Sigh... I thought when they learned to walk life was hard... having them learn to read just a little is going to be even more entertaining and harder. I wonder what Larry would think if he found out that he wasn't worth watching since he wasn't Word Bird.

Wii Might Be In Our Future

My eyes had to be deceiving me when I read Prochein Amy's post... but I followed the link and from this news article it says:

A new weapon will soon join Nintendo?s armoury: a lightsabre.

Oh boy!!!! Anyone out there already have a Wii? I can't wait for someone else to get it and then tell me if it is really good or not! Keep me posted!!!

Dinosaur Munch

The other day I decided to get out the playdoh and have some fun with my boys. I have a couple of playdoh dinosaurs and Tater is really into dinosaurs. Much to my surprise (and I shouldn't have been), Tot was into dinosaurs as well.

At some point, Tater hollared at me to come around and see what his stegosaurus had done. I went over to see little pieces of playdoh piled behind it. Huh? Tater told me the stegosaurus had pooped! Oh wonderful (notice sarcasm).

Then they wanted baby dinosaurs. So I made some...

We also have a mold for some stuff. Puppies, trains, cars, teddy bears. I made a puppy. I was barking at the T-rex that Tot was playing with at the time. He asked for the puppy and I gave it to him. He proceeded to stuff it in the T-rex mouth and say "Yum yum".

Free Image Hosting at

He then took it out. Tater took off the head and laid both pieces down beside the T-rex and said that the T-rex had eaten the puppy. Tot thought it was not enough and proceeded to pick up the bottom and just stuff it in the mouth...

Oh wait... the T-rex was still hungry. Let's stick the head in as well...

The stegosaurus on the other had an eating frenzy on some plants and that is the mess you see below:

I was amazed how well they actually played together. And very proud...

Free Image Hosting at

Well, proud if you exclude the poop, the puppy eating and then the tongue contest. They wanted to see who had the longest tongue...

Then Tot made sure the T-rex won.... He told me it was going to be long enough to touch the table and it certainly did.

Ahhhh... children... they are good for entertainment.

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

This fits the way I feel right now... and it is an oldie but goodie...

Mildred was a 93 year old woman who was very upset over the recent death of her husband, Earl. She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death. Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out Earl's old Army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart, since it was so badly broken in the first place. Not wanting to miss the vital organ and become a vegetable and burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be on a woman. The doctor said, "Your heart would be just below your left breast. Later that night, Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.

Take all American women who are within five years of menopause - train us for a few weeks, outfit us with automatic weapons, grenades, gas masks, moisturizer with SPF15, Prozac, hormones, chocolate and canned tuna - drop us (parachuted, preferably) across the landscape of Afghanistan & let us do what comes naturally.

Think about it. Our anger quotient alone, even when doing standard stuff like grocery shopping and paying bills, is formidable enough to make even armed men in turbans tremble. We've had our children, we would gladly suffer or die to protect them and their future. We'd like to get away from our husbands, if they haven't left already. And for those of us who are single, the prospect of finding a good man with whom to share life is about as likely as being struck by lightning. We have nothing to lose.

We've survived the water diet, the protein diet, the carbohydrate diet and the grapefruit diet in gyms and saunas across America and never lost a pound. We can easily survive months in the hostile terrain of Afghanistan with no food at all!

We've spent years tracking down our husbands or lovers in bars, hardware stores, or sporting events...finding bin Laden in some cave will be no problem.

Uniting all the warring tribes of Afghanistan in a new government? Oh, please ... we've planned the seating arrangements for in-laws and extended families at Thanksgiving dinners for years ... we understand tribal warfare.

Between us, we've divorced enough husbands to know every trick there is for how they hide, launder, or cover up bank accounts and money sources. We know how to find that money and we know how to seize it ... with or without the government's help!

Let us go and fight. The Taliban hates women. Imagine their terror as we crawl like ants with hot-flashes over their wicked forsaken terrain.

Frogs and Fear

I love frogs. Really I do. But right now I am afraid of them. Ohh... not to pick them up or step on them... but the fear you get when you walk out a door. Any door to the outside. Why? Here is an example:

And just moments later... it moved even higher up...

Luckily it wasn't on the door itself or I wouldn't be getting these pictures... my hubby would have been taking them of me on the ground with my arms flying around like banshees. Those frogs just love to jump on you when you open a door around here. Most of them are little (remember the tadpoles?) and while the little ones give me a fright, don't cause nearly the heart dropping, arm movement that the bigger ones can cause. Yaa... it's Monday.

Too Hot

When it is too hot to picnic outdoors... might as well eat indoors. Of course, we cannot let our new book get to far away. Thanks Bou... just a touch of sarcasm. That book doesn't have many words in it, and can be very very very boring after the 30th time you have had to go over it again. Ahhhh... but Tot just loves it.

It's Friday. Phew....

Out of Time

There is a book on my side bar. It is a link to Amazon to buy it. I was able to get it for free from the author just for linking to it. Guess what? I love that book. No explicit s.x scenes. Great sci-fi ideas. And plots within plots to keep you wanting to read more. In fact, I actually read it twice. Ok Ok... I had to read it a second time because I know I missed a lot the first time... I was on pain killers and the like for my kidney problems.

I loved it just as much the second time... particularly since more of the book made sense. If you like sci-fi... and just good adventure books... this is for you. No, this is NOT a paid advertisement. The author did NOT ask me to write a post on it. But when I really enjoy a book and can help a fellow blogger make a few extra dollars... AND I want him to write more... I'll certainly put my 2 cents out here. Also, I plan on passing this down to my kids and when they read this post, they'll know how much I enjoyed the book... if I forget to tell them (or I'm too senile to be able to say something). Ahhh... now to find something else to read that says more than "Biscuit come back. Woof Woof!" and to get off this computer for a while...

Hair grows too fast in this house

New hair cuts occurred this weekend. I was amazed at how much hair was on my boys. They grow it like weeds grow in the yard. Unbelievable. Even the beautician was amazed. I asked the boys if I could take their picture when we got home. Tater posed... I'm in so much trouble when he gets older...

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday was down while I was awake last night. Here is some last minute humor that just hit me as funny this morning...

A Somali arrives in California as a new immigrant to the United States.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and free education!"

The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am Mexican."

The man goes on and encounters another passerby. " Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America !"

The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese."

The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, "Thank you for the wonderful America !"

That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East , I am not American!"

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"

She says, "No, I am from Africa !"

Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

The African lady checks her watch and says... "Probably at work."

A very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into Wal-Mart with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance. The Wal-Mart Greeter said pleasantly "Good morning, and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?"

The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, "Hell no they ain't." "The oldest one's 9 and the other one's 7. Why the hell would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?"

"I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am," replied the greeter. "I just couldn't believe you got laid twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart."

It is 9/11

I put the post up of Tater's daily planner because I did not know what to say for the anniversary of 9/11. I talked to Tink and told her that everything has been said. Many times it has been said much better than what would come from my fingers to this post.

While I have nothing to add to what has been said, I do remember. I do pray for the military personnel that give their lives to help us be a country that is Free and to protect us. And I pray for those who lost someone special to them. And I remember to say "God Bless America." I do remember.

Who's Handwriting?

My poor son has gotten my handwriting. Then again, I think his dad's isn't that great either. Just in fun, I'm posting some of his writing from his daily planner. Then I will do it again around February of next year... see if it has improved or not. I bet he will end up having better handwriting than both his parents. Hopefully it will turn out as nice as my mom's or dad's. Now that was something to see!

A Day Late!

Seems every year, Bou takes me to Sushi for my birthday and I forget hers. Geeze! Then again there was the time I was 9 months late mailing my mom her birthday gift. So, it really has nothing to do with Bou and everything to do with me.

I did a search on s.xy male chef and couldn't believe what I found, but nothing worth posting. Made a few changes in the wording and still nothing worth wild. I was very disappointed. I figured I would be able to get Bou a nice gift if she didn't have to cook every night and it was at least eye candy. ;-)

Don't even try male maid. That made me want to barf. Submissive, french costumes. ewwwwwwwwwww

Sorry Bou... guess I'm stuck just saying Happy Belated Birthday.

Growing Up

My boy is a Kindergartener. Wow. He has memorized his first 9 sight words, brought home some other work to finish and has had good behavior reports every day. He buckles his own strap, dresses himself (except for socks), brushes his own teeth and speaks quite well. While this didn't happen over night, it amazes me when I see it all put together.

Ever since I started carpooling and having him ride with me or my friend to school, he comes home much happier and tells me about what has happened. Like how he met a teacher named Coach. This teacher taught him about basketball. I loved it. He showed me how to hold your hands when dribbling. He loves computer time and he is nice to his classmates.

I got to have lunch with him this week. It was very special. I love my little (big) boy.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep--A Tired Mother's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity to keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind.
I pray I find a little quiet
Far from the daily family riot
May I lie back--not have to think
about what they're stuffing down the sink,
or who they're with, or where they're at
and what they're doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)
To cuddle in my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another goldfish--dead!)
Some silent moments for goodness sake
(Did I just hear a window break?)
And that I need not cook or clean...
(Well heck, I've got the right to dream)
Yes now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep,
But as I look around I know...
I must have lost them long ago!

WTF is Happening On Buses?

I had planned on writing this long post on what has happened over the last couple of days but just didn't feel like it last night. Needless to say between the kids on the bus that said they would sit with Tater then proceeded to push him off the seat, the one that wouldn't scoot over and then the parents that had a yelling match at the bus stop, I have had enough. I don't need my almost 4 year old and 5 year old exposed to this much at once. I don't need it. I was surprised I didn't open my mouth and say something, but overall I was just in shock. The kids apologized to Tater, the parents apologized to me (both sets), but I don't care. If this is the way they handle their problems, I don't need the aggravation in the morning. Neither does my son. I want school to be fun and if it is always a fight in the morning, it won't be fun.

The bus ride home is never a problem... and yesterday the ride to school was just fine. But I am still going to take him this morning. We'll work it out after today.

Did I mention that Tot woke me up this morning and couldn't breath? Yaa... I can't wait for this week to end.

20. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

22. A group of Friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the monastery to close down, but they would not. They were doing great business & tax free! He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest vicious thug in town. He trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

Oldie but goodie that my mom sent me:

Cussing 101

A 6 year old and a 4 year old were upstairs in their bedroom. "You know what?" says the 6 year old. "I think it's time we started cussing" The 4 year old nods with approval. The 6 year old continues. "When we go Downstairs for breakfast, I'm going to say something with "H.ll", and you say something with "A.s". The 4 year old agrees with enthusiasm.

When their Mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 6 year old what he wants for Breakfast, he replies: "Aw, H.ll, Mom, I guess I'll have some Cheerios". Whack! He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his Mother in hot pursuit, slapping his rear with every step. His Mom locks him in his room and shouts, "You can just stay there until I let you out". She than goes back downstairs, looks at the 4 year old and asks with a stern voice, "And what do you want for breakfast, young man?" "I don't know," he blubbers, "But you can bet your sweet a.s it won't be Cheerios.......

Chess for Beginners?

Tater has taken a great interest in chess. We have been working with him on it, but thought if we could find a pc game that would help... since he likes playing on the pc... that we would buy it for him. My hubby read the info on Disney's Aladdin Chess Adventures. But trying to find it is another story. Amazon has it and so does ebay. Nothing really good on the few reviews I found... though some had screen shots. Any suggestions? B

Buses and Mom Goes Crazy

Ok, maybe 'goes crazy again' is a better wording. Seems like forever since Friday afternoon. Ahhh... what is this crazy woman talking about? Tater rode the school bus to school. Yep, the first day of Kindergarten and I let my son ride the bus.

Odd, but having him go to school didn't bother me. I knew he would do fine and that they would get him to the right place eventually... besides, I broke down and called the school and verified the bus arrived.

It was the waiting until 2:44pm for the bus to come back to see if he got on the right bus and got home... that was driving me crazy. Yes, the bus was late... Oh... he made it. Thank goodness. It made me smile when he walked off the bus and he had a sticker across his chest with 'Bus #XX' on it. And another one on his wrist with the same information. Guess they really want to get him on the right bus as well.

Here are some pictures from when we were waiting at the bus stop:

No More Ads

While I earned a little money at Review Me... about $25, it really isn't significant. I have been looking for a while to find different ways to bring some extra money into our family. I think I have found a better way. I'll know in a week or two.

Along with my decision, I saw THIS POST over at CalTechGirl and her frustrations with Paid Posts. Considering this blog is suppose to be a 'scrapbook' for me and my kids... paid posts don't really go here. Then again, if I was earning the money like Pamibe... I might continue... but I'm not earning that kind of money. Hence, no more ads at this blog. No, CalTechGirl did not push me to do this. Nor did her blog entry... it just fit perfectly for a decision I was making last night and while I will continue to read those who do put up Paid Posts... you will not see them here again... ok, unless someone offers me a couple of hundred... then you might see another one.

The Toes Can Do It

I was cleaning in the kitchen when I heard ...

Tater: Mom, look what I can do! With my TOES

Tater: Hold on... let me help Tot, he can do it too...

seems that Tot's marble got stuck in his toes and wouldn't fall... a little more bending and some help with the fingers...

My boys continue to amaze me from day to day on their creative thinking. I would never have thought to play marbles with my toes.

Clip Art Review

Seems that ReviewMe has another interesting site for me. It caught my eye when it said Free Clip Art for Kids. Yep, I?m all about stuff for my boys now a days and I like to get free stuff if I can find it.

My first thought when I went to the site was ?Oh, it?s bright?. Very bright, lots of stuff all over. It took me a minute to look it over. I decided to go ahead and register before going too far down any one path. Registration was easy. Finishing the registration by clicking on the email link was a different story.

And I?m still waiting for my ?email? to complete my registration. I double checked to see if I typed a valid email address. I even tried registration again, just to be sure. And I did? and now I have been waiting? and may have to continue to wait. I have high security set up on my PC and this may be interfering with the setup. This site has an excellent write-up on their privacy policy. Which wants to use cookies. A quote from the policy is

Unfortunately, if you disable cookies on your computer, you will not be able to take advantage of many of the great features and content the Site has to offer.

On to the rest of the review. While finding the clip art was easy because it was in the center, I found the moving text to the left distracting. While doing my best to ignore the text, I clicked to check out a particularly clip art item, it popped up an ad first. Yes, you can press Skip this Ad. Just be aware of this when you come to this site. The clip art was decent. I can certainly use some of the items I found for my kids crafts. It also gave easy instructions on how to save the clip art.

Peeking around, I decided to see what the games would be like. Uh?. you have to be logged in to use it. Unless I make some changes, I will likely be unable to get to the games. The Arts and Crafts -> Kitchen Table Projects has some good ideas. The Coloring pages are acceptable. Looks like they would be easy for the kids to color. I was not that interested in the Boards, Buzz, or Idol Watch.

If you need clipart for your kids or some easy pages to print and color or ideas for projects? definitely come check this place out.

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

Since it is time for school to start here in Florida, here are some back to school jokes... from around the 'net...

From Mrs. Who... go to THIS POST. They are hilarious.

A lesson about blood flow and circulation

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, he said: "Now, students, if I stood on my head the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I should turn red in the face."

"Yes, sir," the boys said.

"Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?"

A little fellow shouted, "'It's because yer feet ain't empty."

= = = =

Q: What's the difference between a teacher and a train?

A: The teacher says "Get that gum out of your mouth", where as the train says "Chew, Chew ".

= = = =

I failed every subject except for algebra.
How did you keep from failing that ?
I didn't take algebra !

Teacher: Are you good at math ?
Pupil: Yes and no
Teacher: What do you mean ?
Pupil: Yes, I'm no good at math !

Dad, can you help me find the lowest common denominator in this problem please ?
Don't tell me that they haven't found it yet, I remember looking for it when I was a boy !

Teacher: Did you parents help you with these homework problems ?
Pupil: No I got them all wrong by myself !

Teacher, I can't solve this problem.
Any five year old should be able to solve this one.
No wonder I can't do it then, I'm nearly ten !

More Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

Go visit THIS POST to have a great laugh about the first day of school. My mom was tame compared to that... I wonder what I'll be like?

UPDATE: Seems like there is a lot of good humor posted in the blog-o-sphere this morning...

My boys have re-discovered the fun of MSN Messenger. You can have conversations with Mammaw while playing checkers. Or better yet, sending Darth Vader Farts. Ahhhh... and soon Tater starts Kindergarten and I start a slow pull back to having brain cells... Well... maybe. ;-)

Yes, I'm stressing over the first day of school. It is this Friday. Yes, my child will do fine. He will ride the school bus and make it to school without a problem, he will find his classroom and he will find his way back home. He is a smart boy. On the other hand, I may go into the funny farm waiting for the first couple of days to come and go.
