    and now where we are up to!!

    Jeb Bush worked for the now bankrupt Lehman Brothers in 2007 ($1.3 million salary) and helped cause the Great Recession. Carly Fiorina, as CEO of HP, completed a disastrous merger with Compaq (High Revenue low margin PC maker). After the Kindle & iPad were introduced (cannibalizing PC sales) a few years later, HP was removed from the DOW Jones average. Donald Trump built a 10 billion dollar net worth through savvy deal-making and successful branding. Now you tell me who's better for the US Economy.

    How do you make Halloween great again? By carving a Trumpkin.

    Dear El Chapo, if you mess with Donald Trump, there will be hell toupee.

    What is Donald Trumps biggest dilemma if he is elected president? Finding a cabinet position for the thing on his head!

    What does Melania see in Donald Trump? "Ten billion dollars and high cholesterol!"

    How is Donald Trump going to create middle class jobs? By paying them to cheer for him during campaign events.

    How do you know the economy is only getting worse? On the latest episode of "Celebrity Apprentice", Donald Trump fired himself!

    I built an electric fence around my house last night.

    My neighbour is dead against it.

    I was walking through an arts and crafts shop when I saw a sign saying, "Glue Sticks."

    I thought, "No shit."

    I've raised quite a lot of money through crowdfunding.

    I'm a pickpocket.

    How lazy is my wife..

    I was in the bath last night with the hot water tap running, I had to shout her 3 times to turn the tap off.

    I was reading that Russia want to be first to build a base on the moon where astronauts will live permanently.

    One astronaut got asked if he really wanted to spend the rest of his life in a barren, lifeless landscape.

    He replied, "No, that's why I want to go to the moon."

    MAE Abbers....

    Beautiful day today, another scorcher. Spent 3 hours in the pool this evening with son and DIL.. Was magic.

    My business is very unpredictable Mick, it used to be busy in the summer, quiet in the winter when I was in the UK but here I have rural clients and they are busy during summer so it is very little seasonal difference.

    The recession has eased off so people are more comfortable spending is all, but can still get very quiet weeks when I have fixed everything. Be very concerned if your doctor or vet is always busy....it means they are either rushed, rubbish or ripping you off! lol

    morning all
    a brisk 16 F out today. Thanks for the brew Mick, ready for another! Morning to you Kuya, still going to the UK soon?

    looks like it might be another expensive day: I was clearing a neighbors drive with my tractor and the hydraulics stopped working, hope it something simple but my gut feeling is the pump. Off to the dealer after finishing this. Thank goodness I put plenty of hay out before the storm so that should be ok for another day or two. If it ain't one thang it be annuder, as they say round chere. Well off to it. hope evreyone is doing well.

    Good Monday morning Abbers!

    Looks like today will be another day of digging out, goodness!
    I haven't even begun to address trying to get my chickens out into their yard for some fresh air & exercise. The storm knocked down the big tarp over their yard so I have to try to drag that thing out of the way, ugh.
    Schools are closed around here so the kids get an extra day to have some fun.

    Mick, enjoy your haggis, haha!!
    I am going to see if Curves manages to open today despite all the exercise shoveling snow.

    kuya, I've been using the same vet since I moved to this area 13 years ago. She is wonderful & kind & has a pretty big following. I hope your folks are faithful to you as well.

    Sam, it's only 12 degrees here so you are lucky, ha ha!
    I hope you can get your tractor fixed quickly, that's a shame.

    Hello to everyone & sending wishes for a great AF day for all. I will check in later.

    Lav

    If you drink a lot of soda, Pauly, just getting rid of that might help you enormously! I hope so.

    Just a quick whizz in,achieved very little today but have sent a few e-mails,spoke to work counselling line and tried to order my thoughts a bit more about what I want.

    They talked about going with the waves of emotion ,and that whatever I decide is the right decision and that a break would be great,as would continuing to work for a good organisation.

    Really tired,plan to have a snooze,bubble bath then go out with rollergirl friends for sushi - squeezing in the nice stuff too.
