field from from but not in DB

ok I'm down to getting AR to ignore the field. the field is called
turing.. I have two function stubs..

def turing
end
def turing=(temp)
end

what do i need to do in these two functions to emulate what AR would
have for column in the DB..

well if someone ever tries to do the same type of thing. maybe they
will find how i solved this!!

the answer is to add the following

  def turing
    @tempturing
  end
  def turing=(temp)
    @tempturing=temp
  end
