    Afternoon all

    Thanks for the warm welcome and the explanation on the name. Look forward to getting to know you all and to Cowboys breakfasts. When I lived in Montreal we had a newcomers club and one of the events was breakfast. Loved it. Brunch is a big thing here at the moment. I live about 40 minutes from Dublin. Mary, Molly, Satz, Tabs are also Irish.

    It's great seeing all the new folks joining us!

    @starty, I bought a Navage. It's a lightly pressurized netty pot. It's worked magic for me. You can bypass having to use their specialized pods, they are too spendy.

    Gorgeous here on the Washington coast. Extended forecast is lovely. I'll definitely take another 24!

    Good morning Cafe friends and those friends from The Army Barracks. Another very hot day today. I had another great round of golf yesterday. 38 front and 36 back. So, I will take another twenty four. I wish you all the best day possible. Blessings x

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Thanks for the lovely welcome everyone.
    I need to report a meltdown at work today. Pressure has been building in my part time job in financial services. Workload getting bigger the more the cost of living bites. Business is of course wanting efficiencies and results in short space of time. I am approaching 60 in 3 weeks and do not have have the energy or the drive to change things up and take on more responsibility any more. I was expected to chair a new meeting of lots of dept heads and get them to buy into new ways of working. That is not me, I do not like management and I do not like the unknown. I enjoy working behind the scenes in more of a supporting role. Happy with large workload but not gut wrenching stress wondering if I am going to fail at something. Anyway, I had to say something to my boss. Fortunately she is very accommodating and accepted my explanation. I think I need to think more if I can retire.

    Sorry for the rant, its been brewing for a while

    I have heard great things about Neti etc and actually seen them being used by another person which wasn't pleasant but seemed effective

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Good morning cafe! @starty Sorry to hear that your job is so stressful at the moment. I'm like you in that I'm a follower, not a leader. Change is also hard on me the older I get. At least you have a boss that seems to understand your situation, but the question now is will she do anything about it? It might do you well to take a hard look at your finances to determine whether or not you can retire.

    Glad that you got your internet back Rava. I'd be pulling my hair out if I couldn't get online.

    Looking forward to another day of peace and serenity.

    Good morning Jude and all to come. Love the sentiments expressed on this thread. We all need peace and serenity in our lives. Sorry you are going through that stress at work Starty. My place has been the same. Off now for nearly three weeks and really need it. Only work the two days and have just over three years to retirement if I stick it that long.

    No internet is a pain Rava, glad you got sorted. Waves to everyone else.

    5:16am in Alberta, I'll have another 24 please, and thanks...

    In the last 24 hours, these friends have joined me for 24 hours of wellness:
    @Jude58 @dill @Rava @rustop59 @Ginger999 @techie @starty

    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isn't easy, its learning a whole new way of thinking. It's accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    Great thing to have your internet up and running now @Rava, not sure how anyone can live without it anymore with most things being online now. So I take it you're all moved in now and making the place look like yours?

    There's nothing worse than having to go to work if you don't enjoy it @starty. Sounds like you've got a good supervisor though and that sure helps.

    Enjoy your 3 weeks off @rustop59, any plans on getting away or doing something special on your break?

    Our 5 day country fair kicks off today at 11:00am starting with the parade. Unfortunately it's supposed to rain today and tomorrow, hopefully it'll hold off so we can enjoy going and watching the parade. And it looks like they'll get a few days of sunshine for everyone to enjoy the fair rides and outdoor activities. Years back we looked forward to going to the fair each day, but mostly it was for the beer gardens and dance lol. Now I can't handle the crowds and noise anymore, much less the beer gardens.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Our county fair was last week and I did not participate this year. Last year I sat at our Homemaker's Club booth and taught youngsters how to sew on buttons. That was enough to last me two year's worth!

    Starty, hope your situation improves at you work now that you have spoken up. I've been retired 10 years now. I made it to age 62 before I retired, but I was definitely feeling the stress the last two years. Plus, there was always some new layer of management adding new layers of paperwork to justify their existence. Never seemed to improve the quality of our services, IMO. I'm sure they'd beg to differ!

    24 more for all of us, please and thank you.

    Don’t forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
