  • For B. Klein and others ~ Tai Chi style question?

    My friend does 24 form short with the same names that we usually see in the Yang form, but some of her moves are different. For example, she comes out of High Pat the Horse by crossing the ankles, weighted left leg in front, then the right leg comes up and she holds it bent at first, then kicks the leg out straight with the left arm out straight and... show more
    My friend does 24 form short with the same names that we usually see in the Yang form, but some of her moves are different. For example, she comes out of High Pat the Horse by crossing the ankles, weighted left leg in front, then the right leg comes up and she holds it bent at first, then kicks the leg out straight with the left arm out straight and right hand down and back. Then she brings both hands up in front with palms toward the face, at eye level. From there, Double Bees Buzzing looks conventional, and the turn around to stand on one leg, but Single Whip Squatting Down looks more like something I would call "needle UP from the bottom of the sea." She called it "White Tiger" and says this is an older style than what is usually taught. Does this resemble any style that you have seen? I'm enjoying doing it along with her, but I'd sure like to know what it is!

    Please don't answer this unless you actually know. Post your experience/credentials. 1. What could make a skunk spray, besides dogs or people? We've been here for 10 years and never had a problem. Suddenly, there was spray twice last week, so bad we were gagging insides the house with all the windows shut. We don't have a dog and my neighbors' dogs all stay on their leashes. I've never seen any critters in my yard except the skunks, woodchucks and turkeys, and of course the small birds. I've never seen a raccoon or a deer here. We're several blocks from any woods. I'm sure we have small rodents because I keep a little patch of habitat and some of the neighborhood cats hunt in it sometimes, but in my experience, cats and skunks get along well. Would a skunk have sprayed a cat or another skunk? 2. I saw a huge one in my garage tonight. It's a wooden garage with a concrete floor and the overhead door is broken right now, so it's open. Is there a way to tell if it's hunting or nesting, without getting into trouble? If it's nesting, can I use the garage to park my car? I know I can drive the skunk out with ammonia-soaked rags or something, but I don't want to unless I can't park the car in there. In Maine, leaving the car outside in winter is a lot of work. Sometimes it can kill the battery, and shoveling it out of drifts takes forever.

    I changed my dates to get away from the Super Bowl. Now I am looking at January 3, 4 and 5. Anything special going on that week? Not many schools on vacation, I hope? I got such great answers yesterday from mrguitarman2, drip, Kristina L, davidhobart47, itchianna and others. I've decided we'll stay on premises to avoid extra parking fees, because I was planning to bring him in and out for meals and at other times. I also knew about not having to wait in line, and also the quiet rooms we can sneak into if things get over-stimulating. We plan on using a wheelchair because it cuts down on the sensory input. We already use a wheelchair in high-crowd situations like big malls and amusements parks. He just hates our Maine winters and he's always wanted to see Disney. He works so hard, I just feel he deserves a winter break. He's part of a sheltered workshop of 7 men with autism who build birdhouses for a living. .

If we stay off-resort we'll have better food options because we can use grocery stores and drive-throughs. (He doesn't like to sit in restaurants) But the drawbacks would be the possibility of too much noise, and maybe not being able to find an adults-only swimming pool. Any opinions?

I kind of hope it's not a starling. In the second picture it's sitting just a few feet away from a robin. Do robins nest in pairs, and are the females brown and grey? The brown one is the one who does the brooding and feeding. It's the same nest that was used last year, does that mean it is the same bird? Early in the spring it hovers about 3 feet to the side and and below the nest, staying in one spot mid-air with its wings fluttering like a moth. Then after the eggs are laid and newly hatched, it'll leave the nest when you walk by, but just go and perch nearby and chirp a little bit. As the babies get closer to fledging, it will dive-bomb us when we try to come in and out of the house. Today the poop started flying and it'll be pretty nasty out there for a couple of weeks til they leave.

The wheel moves but there's no hole in the sole plate, no place for a bobbin under the lid. It's just a pretend needle. As near as I can tell, that company name does not exist, and it's too crude to have been a salesman's sample. Was there a fad where people made these at home?
