  1. We had rain and wind (my daughter mentioned someone who said, it was nothing, just rain with a name), but nothing really serious for us here, just south of Tampa.  My neighbor (who is not here, they're snowbirds) had a window blow out of their lanai.  I'm talking the frame coming out (their lanai was built in the 1960s) and while not rotted, the wood around the frame needs to be replaced.   In between rain bands, I went out and put the frame back in, then screwed in some plywood over the window, to keep the rain out.  I called to let him know and he mentioned making a trip down here next month.  



  2. Here's a bit of trivia for you.  At the end of Blazing Saddles, when the Sherriff(Clevon Little) rides out of WB studios, he rides out from the entrance/exit onto Olive Ave.  It's where you went in for a taping of TBBT.  Also, just before the shot of the sheriff riding out of the studio, there is a quick shot of him riding past a sound stage, the stage is number 25, where TBBT was filmed.  I just noticed that tonight.

    Hi. Which book gives Penny and Leonard to Sheldon? Many times they adviced in some episodies.

    Searched in the forum and google but nothing found.


    Thank you

    There isn’t a known specific book given to Sheldon. It referenced several times(the first time in season 4 episode 15, I believe)   But, it more of a joke, about they gave him a book to learn about  sex.

    Well, there are reports that we are going through a "greenhouse effect" and higher temperatures will bring stronger storms, heatwaves and droughts.  

    While that's generally true, (for instance, besides the general warming,  the extra heat, in winter,  can bend the jet stream which can send the heat into the arctic areas and cold to relatively lower latitudes) El Nino interrupts the air patterns in the tropical latitudes causing more rain around western central and south America.  As far as Florida goes, a blocking high builds east of Florida, along with more wind shear.  This causes fewer and weaker storms for Florida, during the El Nino.   For example, today's weather pattern has a high sitting over Florida that will move west a bit on Tuesday, a normal pattern for El Nino.  Either of those conditions steer a Hurricane around Florida, 

    Now, this is in general during an El Nino.  There will be times when the high moves north or south and/or the wind shear weakens.  When that happens, strong storms can hit Florida.  Strong storms elsewhere are actually more likely because of the higher water temperature.

    It's getting hotter on this side of the pond! I'm in the North of France so the weather is relatively okay but Southern Europe is experiencing extremely high temperatures, don't think it's as bad as it is in some US regions yet though. Stay safe guys! 

    My daughter is in London for a conference.  She doesn't want to come back to Florida.  However, she did spend two days in Trieste, so she did get a taste of the heat in the Mediterranean area.

    I know it's Summer in Florida and it's supposed to be hot, but this is ridiculously hot. Thank goodness the Hurricanes aren't hitting us.

    Yeah, El Nino will generate some heat, but it also disrupts the Atlantic Hurricanes, so there is some positives to the heat.

    Well now, a couple days ago, my newest granddaughter was born. She is 2 months premature. She is doing great. She weighs a  whopping 3 lbs and 4 ozs. Her name is Ellie Rey. Yep they got the name Rey from Star Wars. 

    Congratulations, to you chucky.

    Just saw on the weather map a heat wave coming your way -  stay safe and cool

    Yeah, it’s bad down in Sarasota, too.  Our A/C went out and our daughter is there. Had to get it fixed, coils had a leak and so it was replaced under parts warranty.  Still cost us $1500 for labor.

    Wow, it appears that there is very little chance of rain for the next week. Anywhere between 5% and 15% chance of rain. But the temperatures will be in the high 90's or low 100's. Add the heat index and that will be hot. Thank God for air conditioning. 😂

    Fortunately, for me, I'm in western Virginia, in the mountains, where it's in the 80s.  I have another week or so before getting back to the heat.

    I found this picture of her and her baby on Reddit. It was from a link on another site that someone posted on Reddit. I hope it's okay to post it here.


    The image actually came, originally, from Kaley's IG Stories.  Images posted here,  from social media, must be linked to the original item. We do not allow images posted here to be screen capped and uploaded.   Since images from IG Stories cannot be linked, we don't allow them here.  However, what I did was add the link in your post (the blue), so while the image is not posted here, in accordance with our rules, someone could follow the link and still see the image.  I  know it sounds silly, but we try to keep away from copyright problems.  And, no, TLW, you are not in any trouble.  🙂

    Was it ever made clear how Penny figured out the clue in the geology lab?

    I loved the Howard and Amy interaction in this episode.

    No, but since she knew her music, the poster on the wall was pretty obvious, for someone who didn't think mainly of rocks.

    I was watching this episode tonight on TBS. It occured to me when I watched the scene where Penny wakes up next to Raj. When she wakes up but before she opens her eyes, she looks sort of happy. Do you think until she opened her eyes and saw Raj's arm and Raj she thought she was in bed with Leonard?

    And I think her second "Oh, God!!" was because of the location they ended up in.

    Penny opens her eyes and SMILES.  I've always thought it was because she knew she was in Leonard's room and assumed she was in bed with Leonard until she saw the arm (recognizing it wasn't Leonard's).  We all saw her reaction to Leonard starting to date Priya and her admission to Raj about her screwing up.  Thinking she was in bed with Leonard knowing she was in Leonard's room is only natural.  As a matter of fact, it's played a part in several of my fan fics.

     The actual non-hookup explained by Raj mostly placated the writers conscience and the fans but only Raj and Penny know what truly happened.  The fact is they were in bed together, naked, and she was assisting him in a very intimate moment which was intended to facilitate them having sex.

    NOTE:  I moved a couple of sentences of HeWolf's around as they fit better with my answers, the ones moved are in bold.


    It depends on what you mean by non-hookup.  From Raj's description, it sounds as if she took a hold of Raj's nether regions, to try and place the condom on.  This ended up causing the quickdraw portion of the program.  As Emily pointed out they kissed, and they were both naked.   Add in an orgasm, no matter how it was caused and that would be a hookup.

    We can probably assume that as time passed Penny may have told Leonard the details of what actually transpired between herself and Raj. How much consolation that might bring is debatable.  Thus there really can't be any mitigation to the potential hard feelings of other members of the group; particularly Leonard.

    I seem to be a bit of an oddball in the Lenny world as the incident with Penny and Raj never bothered me when it came to Leonard and Penny, but Leonard and Raj was a different thing.  In my fan-fics, Leonard is outwardly dismissive of having a problem with Penny about it (It does bother him occasionally emotionally).  However,  right after, in the show and in my fan-fics, Leonard (and myself) blame Raj.

    Look at the differences in the reactions to each of them.  Leonard doesn't blame Penny because he was dating Raj's sister, Leonard gave Raj permission to bring women into his bedroom, and he and Penny were not dating each other.   He even brings these points up when she is thinking of leaving LA.  

    Leonard is upset with Raj, in the cafeteria with the line, "What is wrong with you."  But the thing with Penny seems to have lessened rather quickly as later, during the paintball game, he is more upset with him because he didn't tell Leonard Priya was leaving, rather than what happened between him and Penny.  Also, Raj, knowing that Penny was upset because she considered breaking up with Leonard a mistake, should have kept him from trying anything.

    Hi Tensor,

    Your message got me thinking. Remember the spanking scene at the end of "Fish Guts". Do you then think that, in a way, he was aware of what was happening because to me,he looks so clueless . 

    The whole thing made me a bit unconformable to be honest because while she's clearly aroused,he looks like he has no clue but maybe on some level he knew? 

    If he can mimic a specific sex act surely he knows that an adult spanking another adult has a sexual connotation. 

    I have to agree with He Wolf.  After season four, he was written so inconsistently that you never knew exactly what you would get from him.  My point was that after that particular episode, I could never see Sheldon as naive.  In earlier seasons, you could go with he actually didn't know because of his lack of social skills.  Later seasons, he had to know, he had been told so many times and had the eidetic memory(another inconsistency?) to know better, right?   Because of that inconsistency, they could have him using a metaphor for sexual a specific activity and still be clueless about the sexuality of a spanking.  


  13. I could never see Sheldon as innocent and non-understanding after The 43 Peculiarity.  Anyone who could come up with a chicken pecking for corn analogy, while bobbing their head understands quite well what is going on.

    Thanks. As I said in an earlier post,  I've had my share of colonoscopies as well.

    As have I.  I’ve decided that being old  is just having to go through a lot of medical procedures.

  15. 10 hours ago, PeriodicTableShowerCurtain said:

    Why were the writers so obsessed with these? 

    Or are they routine in the USA?!

    Colonoscopies area normal for those that are over 40, here in the US.  I've had one about every 5-7 years since I turned 40.  They are a good way to check for colon cancer.  However, I think this goes back to Chuck Lorre, who, in his thirties was a mostly out of work musician, trying to raise a family.  He had intestinal problems, but couldn't afford a colonoscopy to check to see what was wrong.  The only thing he could do was to go to a teaching hospital and get a colonoscopy, without anesthesia.  They figured out what was wrong with him and it was treated.  Although I think it left a mark on Chuck, (anesthesia free colonoscopies are not fun) hence all the colonoscopy jokes.

    Why did you answer then

    Because he can and is allowed to. If you don’t like a post, move on.  If you feel it violates our rules, report it. 

    With that in mind, chucky, I strongly suggest that you refrain from responding.

    I think that she had several credit cards. 

    She also had them get cancelled, but also new ones.  Check near the beginning of "The Spaghetti Catalyst".  She has this line:

    Penny: Oh, damn, they cancelled my Visa. Oh, yay, a new MasterCard!

    Thank you Tensor.


    Do you also know how many dogs Kaley has now? Is Shirley still alive?

    Yes, Shirley is still alive.  She has Shirley, Ruby, Dumps, and King.  I think her and Tom have a blended canine family as he has several of his own.

    The fact that Kaley was having her own ranch built when they got married, is that something at the time you think was decided to protect her own interests in case they got divorced in the future.

    Was they sharing his ranch at the time?


    No, the planning for her Ranch had begun before she met Karl and it wasn't just Kaley.   Kaley and Tracey Wade, her equestrian trainer, are both involved in running Big Bay City.  I believe Kaley is the majority owner, but Tracey also is invested and brings a much broader Equestrian knowledge to the ranch.

    Except on a temporary basis (moving horses around or going and returning from shows), Kaley and Karl never shared or owned a ranch together.  As others have pointed out, protecting her assets (and Karl's, in his case) were the reason both of them had pre-nups drawn up.
