spiralflames health update

greetings. you don't know me, but i'm a friend of [livejournal.com profile] spiralflames. she's been off lj for months, and i just talked to her on the phone and promised i'd let everyone on her friends list know, personally, how she was doing.

first, the bad news: her declining health of this year was due to undiagnosed ovarian cancer. it was finally properly diagnosed, and last week she had two tumors removed in an 11-hour operation, and one of them was gigantic.

the good news: the doctors feel that they got it all out, and with a course of chemo the prospects are bright.

now the fantastic news: [livejournal.com profile] spiralflames is beating all expectations with the rapidity of her recovery: within 2 days her blood chemistry was back to normal, and an expected stay of a week in ICU turned out to be one day.

she's kicking some serious ass. :)

if you'd like to send her a message of any kind, feel free to reply to this or to write me at foosi@comcast.net. if you need a phone number or address, write me and i'll get the info from her when i talk to her next. i'm sure she can use all the positive encouragement possible.

keep her in your thoughts. she's cherishing every minute of life right now and i'm sure she wants you to do the same.

Hi. I stumbled onto this journal via [livejournal.com profile] drownedinink, and it looks neat, so I added it. Chad will certainly speak for my good character, or in any case provide excuses for my bad one.

Anyway, do feel free to friend back, and nice to meet you.

Can I make annoyingly callous use of your skills and talents and ask you to check my work for me? (If I don't hear back, I'll assume it's "no, please no!" and I won't be offended.)

I'm trying to figure out the latin for "God bless the grass," and having spent some considerable time on line trying to figure out conjucation and declensions, I *think* it *might* be something like "Deus bea graminis" -- ? I think that should be nominative, second person imperative, and I've forgotten the name of the final case but it's the one for an object and in this case an object that is being helped or harmed. ...Or at least, that's what I *hope* it is....

Whether you're inclined to correct my errors for me or not, thank you -- most especially because I so often enjoy your posts and so rarely reply, meaning I owe you many thanks already.

It is my pleasure to help! I'm pleased you enjoy reading my posts.

The first question is do you mean to state a direct command to God or do you mean to hope that it happens, i.e, is it:

"God, bless the grass." or "May God bless the grass"?

Once I know that, I can give you the correct translation.

I think I'd consider it in between the two -- say, an entreaty: "God, please bless the grass." A command seems a bit inappropriate in context, but it's more than a general hope, too. Make sense? (And thank you!)

Hello there! I was sent here on a mission from [livejournal.com profile] apperception to meet you, since apparently we share some interests (in Classics). If you don't find me terribly annoying, please feel free to add me! So far you seem quite interesting to me, so I'm adding you regardless.

I found your journal via [livejournal.com profile] naamah and several other mutual friends, and my curiosity was piqued. It would be lovely if you chose to reciprocate. :)

[livejournal.com profile] spiralflames said you would be the one to ask for help with a Latin translation I am having a problem with. (You may even be able to clear some stuff up for me since for some reason participles are completely eluding me - is there some trick to getting it?) My entry (http://jenmcd.livejournal.com/252109.html) has all the crazy details and theories. Basically, I have to translate Mihi dantibus semper dō and I think it's something like "I give to myself by giving." How far off base am I? What function is dantibus performing in this sentence?

Yes, I can help you here. I've answered at your page.

May I ask at which level you are studying Latin and which book you are using?

I'm in my second semester of Latin I, and we're using Wheelock's Latin. Thanks for your assistance!

From [livejournal.com profile] npr_junkie. I really like your Groundhog Day posts. I'd love to read more.

Sorry I really don't post that much, and it's not very deep, but I do read and comment (if you want me to).

Original in Russian.
With the "theory" of Darwin in education, religion is the origin of the cave in the Stone Age, and fits into the "theory" of evolution from ape to man, together with modern science doevolyutsionirovav to the current state and giving this "theory" of education completeness. For that reason, modern science and education without religion is indispensable. In fact, religion has occurred in education. In the beginning was the word of the light, and then are the gods on Earth, called themselves holy. Such a beginning in education and religion have vulgarity. Over time, vulgarity increasingly penetrated into education and the spirit of the divine call. By the twentieth century AD, which is light and spirit is known to be stopped.
