Fortunately I've never had to pee any gallstones yet, but that seems mild
compared to peeing fowl; that must hurt like a sonofabitch.

Looks like an entrepeneur immigrant wrote his own advertisement.
Other than that, looks like a nice place to spend a weekend.

What part of "The Cammarch Hotel" don't you understand?
They're a bread and beckfast, of course, philski. And
the 6x7' suites are all thoroughly modern (now with
-heating- and -electricity-!)

They're in SERIOUS need of a copywriter because of their
run-on sentences you know what I mean guys I thought you
would?

"were guests can relax, feed the fish and pee fowl"
"****in' chickens" isn't a familiar phrase. I wonder if
Andy Dingley could 'splain that for us O'er the Ponders.

Guinea hens are much different than peafowl.

Guinea: http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Guineas/BRKGuineas.html

Pea: http://www.strombergschickens.com/stock/guineas.htm#peafowl

But apparently can cross-breed...

Peaguinea: http://www.guineas.com/peaguinea.html

Considering the locale, I suspect the room dimensions are
in meters.

I presume a 'beckfast' is a place where they encourage you
_not_ to eat meals, right?

Not that it matters to _this_ crowd, but it's a simple spelling
error. "pea fowl" is what was meant. It's the term for
referring to both 'peacocks' and their female counterparts ("pea hens")

Um, turn "literal" mode off for a minute, Nahmie. You

Then again, where on EARTH are the poor hoteliers going

Oh, it's not that hard. I've got an old buddy living in the desert, outside
Sonoita, who has spent a ton of time in Wales conducting motorcycle tours,
married a Welshwoman, and is fair with the English language. But maybe the
culture shock has gotten to him by now. Imagine the desert tan switching over
to Wales green.

My mistake Dave. I understand Peacocks as a breed, but where I was brought
up, Guinea Hen and Pea Hen were used interchangeably for the Guinea Hen.

Now Lar, I didn't miss the fun *completely*! I agree that "pee fowl" could
be *very* painful. Knew some guys in the USN that did the "pee foul" a time
or two, but the "penny-cillin" always took care of it.

I will admit to maybe being a little too serious or literal @ times. Too
many years chasing logic problems in large scale systems, and they don't
tolerate much humor in troubleshooting.

True. A buddy of mine told stories about doing late-night PMs for
large systems and a his run-ins with a certain janitor. The guy
would come in and carelessly (and accidentally) dust -switches-
into different positions. My buddy got there before the janitor
one evening and programmed the computer to do some printing and
sheet feeds, then hid in the next room with a switch. When the
janitor came into the computer room and began to dust, IMMEDIATELY
as his duster touched the console, the printer started its routine.
In 6" characters on wide tractor paper, the first sheet read "Alright,
John, you (insert ethnicity of your choice here) *******, I've had
enough of your abuse. You have tickled me with that duster and moved
my switches for the last time." It then started feeding out a hundred
blank pages at full speed, spilling out onto the janitor's feet. He
turned white, ran screaming from the office, and didn't return that
night. My buddy figured that taught him to play more nicely around
computers.

We kept them on the place I was raised. They are hard to catch except at
night, or, if you were one of my evil cousins, during the daytime with a
suitably big firecracker.

Next to geese, they are one of the best (daytime) country burglar alarms
going.

.... and they make a helluva gumbo.

I believe peafowl are commonly used as same in some countries. But
geese, them buggers can break a bone if they come at you hard. Mean
bastids.

I would have paid money to see that!

If you ever want to see a system operator with that "deer in the headlights"
look. . . . NCR304 system(early 60's), using Ampex tape drives. Denny had
just mounted a reel of tape, closed the door and was doing the "button
dance" to complete *loading*, when the whole room went dead silent. This
whole system operated with 3 phase 230VAC 400cycle that was produced by a
motor generator in the air conditioner room, and just as he did the *button
dance*, a diode in the exciter current control circuit died, ergo no
400cycle 3phase etc., and the whole room went utterly silent except for the
slight "sighing" of the air conditioning.

Attack geese are dangerous, but a stick or a kick to the head
settles them right down. Used to walk through a flock of them
twice a day when I lived in CT. The upside is goose dinner and no
regrets.

Just walking by a mama goose sitting on a nest is enough to make a grown man
walk softly, and quickly, IIRC. As a kid, when we were gathering eggs, I was
always amazed how a mouth with no visible teeth could cause so much pain .

Goose dinner is good, however.
