    Hi, All:

    Hanging on here. Not much to report. Anj I looked up one video and watched 5 minutes - I can tell this Bealtine Cottage is going to be my gentle meditation instead of the news at night. I look forward to watching more after work.

    Happy SOBER Thursday,
    Pav

    Happy Un Hung Thursday everyone.

    Byrdie, good on you- your neighbour takes the cake! Like G says, Sheesh! I can't believe she did not invite you to the party and now wants you to bake a cake- oh and she would insist on paying you. Whatever. I think we need to pay a visit to this neighbour and set her straight.
    Wags, Lav, Pav, all you Americans You will get through this. I watch the American news almost everyday but only for 15 minutes or so because I like to stay current. Otherwise I listen to CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and they actually talk about a lot of stuff besides America, it is a lot more balanced. US politics is not a big part of their coverage.

    Anj, thank you for the Bealtaine Cottage suggestion. I watched part of the before and after video, how cool is that? I am going to look at it a bit more. I really love this. Thank you!! It is so neat. I love to garden and my mom does too. She has a huge yard and I can see incorporating some of Collette O'Neil's ideas into her yard. Our climate is dry though so it would be a bit different of course.

    Big waves G! Hello Ken.

    Have a good one everybody and don't drink today.

    Hi Nest.

    Chill day here. My office is being re-carpeted, so I don't have my usual set up to be productive. I had this big idea to start a design firm with an actual office and other designers. I did the math. I want to plant this seed. I never did it before because I had kids and wanted to be at home (and was a heavy drinker), but I would like to explore the idea for future. I've more than paid my dues and think I could do it.

    Narily, I USED to watch sports… but not since kids. I have so many other more important things to do!! Enjoy your quiet time.

    Byrdie… she must think pretty highly of herself. And to ask you, who she knows doesn’t drink, shows some insecurity (or cruelty) on her part. Unimaginable. I would like to have a little talk with her, so if I’m ever your way….

    Hi Anji, Wags, G and everyone else!

    Yes, I alternate between intense anger and frustration at our administration, and hope for a brighter future. Today is a hope day. I can's sustain the doom and gloom. I do believe in people, but we need to elect honest leaders who don't mislead the public. We can't make progress if half the population is operating from bogus info. Time for each and every one of us to be responsible enough to search out valid information, based in fact and presented by people who's motivation is for the betterment of society, not their pocketbook. It seems so easy to me to see the BS... but maybe I pay more attention than the average person.

    I am infinitely glad that drinking is in my past life. I was not taking responsibility for myself and my endeavors in life. In the end, that is all we can do... is start by taking care of ourselves, then others. Can't do that with addiction.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Hurricane related rain all day as was promised, no wind or anything like that. More on the way for tomorrow. Wrapping up the crafty stuff for Saturday’s craft show, supposed to be sunny & 50 degrees. I can live with that.

    NS, welcome ack but I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I know how that hurts your heart
    Will be thinking of you.

    Kensho, you have a bright future, you can do anything you want! No addiction issues to get in the way, the sky is the limit!

    Narilly, did the snow melt? I think you have warmer temps right now than we do, haha!

    Pav, hope your day was a good one!

    G, we most certainly are in charge now, no substance in control anymore

    Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hola nesters,

    Or should that be Merhaba! Hello in Turkish as i'm going to the beach next week with a Turkish chica.

    Hi NS. Sorry to hear about losing your pup. That's always a devastating experience. Take care of yourself.

    Friend Kensho! Yes! You can do it. You believe and you know! Why not you? My mindset seems to be really erring towards the positive 'i can do anything' vibe of late. I'm focusing a lot everyday on building my skills in turning a buck for my twilight years, along with daily mindset drills. No room for boozing in anyway. That's great to me.

    Yo Nar!

    Lav, right on. I'm the boss and captain of my soul. I choose my direction. Happy to say i actually have one.

    Big waves to evabody.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good morning all changable weather here we had heavy rain and milder temps the past 2 days but the sun is shining again after a wet start. Kensho do you work from home usually or is due to covid19? I wish you well if you decide to go for the business venture with alcohol out of the way now could be a good time. I messed up or lost so many opportunities from drink when i was younger and lack of confidance/self belief but no point going over the past i am i an better place now. Pav and Nars so glad you found and enjoyed Colette's site she has a very soothing voice and passionate about what she does. Her dog jack is adorable. she did have 2 rescue cats but sadly passed. She is from Omagh Co. tyrrone but now in Roscommon so her accent is not from there. You can read her bio online. Ahh suger so sorry about losing your doggie its awful to lose pets they are family to me. Mr G going to the beach? oh sounds fab its winter here and i can walk along our small local beaches but colder along the coast but still nice for walks. Oh some one else i found on youtube and she is from Lancaster Pensilyivania sorry no spell check lol. Homestead Tessie she live a simple frugal life on a few acres in a rural town and does canning crafts and cooking and she love old fashioned old style things . Her parents were former menonites but left that at some time when she was growing up. I sometimes follow this lady from Hazleton PA called the poverty Princess. Sharon. lives with her son Ronnie and does frugal shopping life style and crafts. Hello to to Lav Byrd Wagnor and anyone i forgot have a fab Friday. I hope to visit my sister again today.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    So sorry for your loss, NoSugar. Our sweet pets - so sad. Sending you love. (nice to see you pop in Pauly - hope all is good)

    Mr. G you are an international man of mystery. Have a nice day at the beach.

    Lav, we need that rain! So dry here, and we're heading into another heatwave here - maybe up to 80 F (about 26-27) on Nov. 1. Crazy.

    Kensho, my career vastly improved with quitting drinking, even though it was going ok before. I had no idea how much my confidence was wrapped up in my difficulties. Being sober let it shine through. Good luck.

    Happy Friday, everyone else (well, maybe Sat. in Oz?) No booze here!

    Pav
