      Aloooha Friday ABeroooskies!

      Mick, hope you make it detecting Sun and show us your shiny prizes.

      PPQ, didn't know you had computer tech skills... what a talented gang we have here

      Treegirl, here's more brain candy. Podcast that rocks: Dharma Punx NYC + Brooklyn

      and hardcore neuroscience of addiction The Neuroscience of Addiction - with Marc Lewis - YouTube

      Lav, sounds like it's hard to plan with weather like that. Awesome you got your DNA profile done, I'll be next
      hopefully soonish.

      followup call from the home security system tech job today and they really liked my video conference and want to
      set up another interview. Hate getting my hopes up anymore after the last surprise but this one is looking solid.

      Pauly, that sounds like a big pile of no fun at all. Hope it settles with minimum drama.

      just found out today that it's a freaking felony in NV to collect your own rain water. seriously! the state even flies drones
      around to see if anyone has any catchment systems including even a bucket. WTF happened to this country? we used to
      have at least a semblance of freedom which has been replaced by a dystopian bureaucracy that used to only exist in
      bleak sci fi stories.

      on a brighter note i found a fun new coffee shop today. I've been on a mission to find new coffee shops (independent ones) every
      day that i can. It's a fun little mini-adventure.

      hmmm no idea what I'm doing this weekend aside from RR meets and gym. pictures! ok then...

      be well loves

      Greetings Abbers,

      Not much happening in Lav-land today. Tomorrow daughter, granddaughter & SIL plan to visit & they will be bringing a case of Girl Scout cookies - just when you really don't need the extra calories, haha! I buy a case & give away as many as possible

      Mick, I had to look up your meal ~
      Haggis, Tatties, and Neeps Recipe for Burn's Night
      I'll take the vegan haggis please
      Sunday may not be a good detecting day for you. I hear we have another hit of artic air moving this way. Glad I baked extra seed rings for the chickens, LOL
      Bonnie sounds like she's back to normal, good!

      The DNA stuff is interesting Det. We grew up knowing that my mother's family was from Poland & possibly the Ukraine. I now know that way, way back these folks originated in Algeria, made their way to France & eventually to eastern Europe. Talk about migration, huh?
      The job for the security systems sounds good, I hope it comes to fruition. In the meantime get out with your camera & have some fun
      Maybe you & Pauly should open a coffee shop HINT HINT!!!!

      Pauly, you are not liable for any IRS errors your shop owner may have made. You have a record of your monthly rental payments, that's all you can be responsible for, right?
      Enjoy your non-winter weather this weekend & have fun with the kids, OK?

      Cyn, we have giant puddles all over the area from the heavy rains this week. They're freezing up in the middle of the farmer's fields since the ground is frozen. I have a friend who live sin MN & he said they're having -25 temps, BRRRRRRRR!!!
      Our tax package from the accountant arrived to day so we have to gather what he needs & send it off. Maybe the IRS will actually be working to process all these returns, geez.

      PQ, glad your computer is alive & seemingly well!

      Hello to SK & Pie.

      Have a nice night everyone!

      Re: w/c 20

      MAE ALL.... It's the weekend!

      TG...glad you made it home safe and sound yesterday. I've driven in those down pours before but definitely not for 3 hours! Geeze. Intrigued about HB and his living arrangements, I make up lots of stories. LOL I'm planning on a quiet night as well tonight. I hear you about the bookkeeping. My ex had 5 companies going at one point, can you say Bipolar? Never used to watch the weather network but I do now. We're heading up to 57 tomorrow and then down to 33 and snow on Sunday.

      Det...computer tech skills can be a real nightmare at times. I left that type of work more than 25 years ago, too demanding with the constant changes. When I started working at the community centre the boss was very computer illiterate and refused to enter the 21st century. The board of directors put their foot (feet) down and insisted we get with times so I did get drawn back in. It's ok as I'll do what I feel comfortable with and then call in an IT expert for all the crap jobs. LOL The home security tech job sounds really interesting, I think you'd be great at it, more so than the cremation sales job. With another interview it does sound promising. "it's a freaking felony in NV to collect your own rain water" you've got to be kidding. What's up with that? I know with our Community Garden we're not allowed to collect rain water from roofs due to contamination but that's about it. Pictures sound like a good idea this weekend, we haven't seen any for awhile.

      Mick...yup, I think I handled that meeting pretty good. LOL Hope you got a better nights sleep last night. Raining and the window washers show up, but of course. Did you have your haggis tatties and neeps? Of course I had to google neeps! You couldn't pay me enough to eat haggis! No cards today, that usually happens on Wednesday's but I've been a little busy at work lately and couldn't justify the time. I'll have to get some playing in next week. Got your train video but haven't been able to watch it, will do so after I post. Glad Bonnie is better and the meds are finished. What do you mean daffodils are up!!!!

      Pauly...wow you've got some drama going on at work. Didn't know about the lady who got fired because she was sleeping. LOL And jerk face has raised his ugly head again! Your boss should counter sue for damages. Like you say it doesn't affect you directly, Just be thankful you don't own the business. Nope, we don't have Rubios here and I'm not a fan of fish tacos. I think it's tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for me tonight. Please pass along any suggestions from you myfitnesspal's, any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

      ***Just lost my post - clicked on the wrong button*** Thank you auto save!

      Lav...I had to look up Mick's menu as well. Oh no, not another round of arctic air! Ooooh I like the Pauly & Det Coffee Shop, think of all the pics that would be on the walls! It is nice to have my laptop back and it seems to be working fine. Knock Wood! Enjoy your visit with the girls tomorrow and hand those cookies out quick!

      Pi...happy belated PI day. Think of you often.

      Off to get my dinner started. Have a great evening all....PPQP

      Working at that Bingo Hall isn't just a job!..It's a calling!

      The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought. "How could you do this!" he exclaimed.

      "I don't know," she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the dress. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.'"

      "Well," the pastor persisted, "You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, "Get behind me, Satan!"

      "I did," replied his wife, "but then he said "It looks great from back here, too."

      A gentleman asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot over to an attractive woman.

      The waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, "This is from the gentleman seated over there," indicating the sender.

      She regarded the wine coolly for a second, not looking at the man, and decided to send a reply note to the man. The waiter, who was lingering for a response, took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman.

      The note read: "For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, a million dollars in the bank, and 7 inches in your pants."

      After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own in return. He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to return this to the woman.

      It read: "For your information, I have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, a Mercedes CL600 and a Porsche Turbo in my garage. There is over twenty million dollars in my bank account. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you would I cut three inches off.

      Just send the bottle back."

      Paddy is working on a building site and hears the lunchtime bell...off he goes to the portacabin and takes a seat, unwraps his sandwiches and fills his empty belly.

      An English fella sits down next to him and produces a Thermos Flask from his bag, and proceeds to pour himself a piping hot cup of coffee.
      Paddy looks on in amazement and remarks ''What de bleedin hel_l is dat thing''?!

      The English fella turns to him and says ''Its a Thermos Flask, Paddy''

      ''Well what the hel_l does dat do then''? asks Paddy

      ''It keeps things hot, and it keeps things cold'' responds the English fella.

      ''Well dat is amazin' - when i get off work today I'm gonna get meself a T'ermos Flask straight away''

      The next day, the lunchtime bell goes, and the English fella is already seated in the portacabin eating his lunch. In walks Paddy, beaming from ear to ear, clutching a bright shiny new flask under his arm.

      The English fella remarks ''Oh, so you got one then''?

      ''I fokin did''!! says Paddy

      Another builder turns to Paddy and asks ''Whats that you got there then''?

      ''T'ermos Flask'' is Paddy's response

      ''Oh, right, so what does that do then''? enquires the builder

      ''It keeps things hot and it keeps things cold'' says Paddy

      ''So what you got in there''? asks the builder

      Paddy replies: ''2 cups of tea and an ice lolly''


      Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said "someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

      Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

      Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

      Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

      Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

      Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost."

      So they laid off the night watchman.


      A woman went to the doctor's office and was seen by one of the new young doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she started screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story. After listening, he told her to sit down and relax in another room.

      The older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?"

      The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and, without looking up, said, "Does she still have the hiccups?"

      A country preacher was walking the backroads near his church. He became thirsty so decided to stop at a little cottage and ask for something to drink. The lady of the house invited him in and in addition to something to drink, she served him a bowl of soup by the fire. There was a small pig running around the kitchen. The pig was constantly running up to the visitor and giving him a great deal of attention.

      The visiting pastor commented that he had never seen a pig this friendly.

      The housewife replied: "Ah, he's not that friendly. That's his bowl you're using."

      With the circus in town, a local man is very excited to see the magic show and rushes down to the big-top. He reaches the gates just as the circus is closing for the day but manages to buy a ticket and hurriedly runs into the tent. "Where's the magic show?", he breathlessly asks one employee.

      The lady replies that she just saw the magician in the back packing up his bags for the day and without wasting a minute, the man rushes back to see the show. He races into the room only to find the magician ready to leave.

      "I'm here for the magic show", the guy tells the magician.

      "Sorry pal, come back tomorrow I'm going home." replies The Amazing Jonas.

      "Look", says the man, "I just paid good money to come in and see a magic show and that's what I expect!"

      Visually annoyed, the magician tells him, "Buddy, I've been here all day and I'd like to go home and see my wife and kids."

      With that, the customer becomes more irate and DEMANDS that he be shown at least one magic trick.

      "Okay, you want to see a magic trick?!", Jonas asks. "Pull down your pants."

      The man looks skeptical but does as he's told.

      "Now bend over and grab your ankles." As he does Jonas walks behind him and the man flinches. "There," asks the magician. "Can you feel my finger in your ass?"

      The man winces and replies, "Yeah."

      The magician holds both of his hands over the guy's back, wiggles his fingers in front of his face and shouts, "Ta-Dah."


      Father: Why don't you get yourself a job?

      Coffee all around as I get ready to head off to the bottle depot. Got to take advantage of this chinook. Hope everyone is surviving their weather woes. Back later....PPQP

      X-Post Mick...looks like our weather has finally synced, we too are having snow showers but temps will be just around freezing. Sounds like a good day to work on the train setup. So glad Bonnie has bounced back.

      Re: w/c 20

      Mae all,

      Mick, so glad to hear about Bonnie snapping back to her "abnormal self" LOL! Thx for the jokes - I laughed out loud on the pig one - that would absolutely happen at my house if I used the dog's bowl! Burns night - for the writer, Robbie Burns?

      Lav, oh no more cookies! RE: DNA, didn't you get info on some part of your family was in the ?Toureg (or some other car name) tribe? That was fascinating. I think if they search far enough back, we all came out of some north African country... that's where it all began. Enjoy your time with daughter and granddaughter!

      Det, crossing fingers for your job interview. When Lav mentioned Coffee Place (w/Pauly, which I think is a brilliant idea), it also occurred to me that you should be able to mount a show of your photo work in one of these coffee places -- many shops here do that, but the stuff is nit nearly as good as yours...

      PPQ, ok, just to lead you on a bit more, HB just came home again - for 2 days. He has to work for long periods of time in the big city, hence we have to both travel to see one another. He rents places for the time he is contracted for. So, we end up spending $$ equivalent to 2 mortgages... which is why we are considering selling this house and finding an apartment close to the city next year, if he gets a similar contract. All will be revealed (someday)!

      Pauly, so sorry for all the ridiculous stuff you are having to wade through at work. Good luck finding the right pathway out and forward!

      SK, Pi and Sam, here's hoping all is well!

      Cheers for a good start to your weekends.

      TG...oooh a mystery to solve. It took us almost a year to get Mick to fess up to what he was doing on Sundays! Lets see...HB works contract, long term as he just moved into the winter/spring apartment. Wondering why the summer/fall apartment wouldn't work anymore???? Will have to do some more thinking on this....PPQP

      Good evening Abbers,

      Well, my guests left a few minutes ago, we had a nice time & a good dinner. Not a haggis in sight either, LOL
      I now have 12 boxes of Girl Scout cookies sitting here if anyone is interested
      The temp just dropped below freezing but it's not bad. Wednesday night it's dropping to 5 degrees - OH MY!

      Mick, I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner - I just couldn't do it, ha ha!!!
      I roasted turkey tenderloins & a big tray of broccoli, cauliflower & carrots & made mashed potatoes. Everyone was happy
      Give Bonnie a treat for me, something tasty!

      PQ, my son-in-law's entire job is keeping all the computers safe in a large company. He has to stay up to date for every & any possible cyber attack - eek!!!!
      He just went to FL for two days last week for a conference, keeps him busy & on the move.
      I hope the rest of this month goes by as quickly as the first part did. I want to see us inching closer to spring.

      Cyn, you have an excellent memory
      My ancestors were Tuareg Who Are The Tuareg People Of The Sahara? - WorldAtlas.com
      My granddaughter was very excited to tell me about her unicorn theme birthday party next month. I'm invited along with all her friends & classmates - can't wait
      Hope you get some rest this weekend!

      Hello to Pauly, Det, SK & Pie. Hope everyone is OK.
      Have a nice night everyone.
