    Re: w/c Feb 17

    Lost a long post. No auto-restore.

    My cleaning ladies came today and I went outside to wait for uber, I came back in to grab my phone and they were unloading THEIR laundry. I was so disappointed because I treat her very well and pay her above the regular rate. No wonder my detergent pods were disappearing from the laundry room. She has been also using stain remover, drying sheets and liquid febreeze, and she has been cleaning for me for 2 years.

    Lav, sorry about your ice and mud. You've had a bad winter. In WA state, mud used to mean muddy floors from dogs. You do enjoy some nice birds. Maybe I do have one bird you don't have, a mockingbird, probably Pie does too.

    Mick, your hanging baskets are fabulous and your entryway is very smart. I imagine you are good with roses. The David Austin roses with all those delicate petals would never survive in the Texas heat. We are in zone 9. The picture of your train, etc. is so well done and life-like. Finches like the feeding tubes and niger thistle seed. They are so adorable.

    Lav, you do get a lot of nice birds. Maybe there is one I get, the mockingbird that you don't get. It's the national bird of TX. I am excited too about the little chicks, how sweet. Sorry about your mud.

    Pauly, I think it's important to plan the meals too, yum to roast beef.

    Det, I have a small saucepan packed, I've hesitated with the big one because it was so difficult to lift with the broken wrist, but UPS is coming to pick it up. I hope it gets there inside of 3 weeks. Still sounding stong, I love it.
    Pie, did you manage to get your father fixed up?

    Cyn, busy Cyn, glad you got finished what you needed. I didn't see the moon. Cardinals love sunflower seeds.

    Mold on roses? water only the base and spray with baking soda and water.

    Got to go. Goodnight all.

    Lav, thanks for the note on the IP. Looks like I'll have to grab one once I've moved into a place.

    PPQ, chicken pot pie sounds perfect for your weather i must say.

    snowfall in Vegas is rare-ish but no miracle. the record of almost 17 inches (wow) was in 1949.

    just popped in again to say I'm watching a most quaint scifi from 1956 called 'fire maidens of outer space'.
    it's a trip!

    Mae everybody, Det yay on the side job! SK,if you like the cleaning lady maybe take Dets advice and sit her down for a talk? It isn't right and I'd be pissed but maybe she doesn't have a washer at home? TBH I've taken a few loads to my shop years ago when our washer broke,the kids were still in school and absolutely needed clean clothes,just a thought Lav yep it's essential to have everything ready for dinners with the boys Romeo is really clingy and it's hard to cook with him around,feel really brain foggy this morning off for more coffee,much love and have a great BF Friday!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    hiya SK ...first reaction to your post re the cleaning lady ?ditch her ..because she is actually stealing. but long deep breath and have a think ..ok she knows you ,she I presume that she is pretty good at cleaning ..so I would sit down and front her up about it ..after all you are in the driving seat..she is getting paid by you ..her option is leave or get sacked ..the result is the same ..no money.Im sure she will still work for you ...but can you trust her ..?thats the biggy..Is she in a position to steal goods or money?That call has got to be yours ..hope you come up with the right decision .

    Hiya pauly ,hows the foggy brain?cleared up I hope ...soon the weekend..you got any plans?

    hiya Det ...how are you then mate?good I hope.Is the snow still there?

    hiya ppqp ..hows you then..all good Ihope ..did you get everything sorted out with the room etc?

    hiya Lav..how are you today then?any more raccoon antics?phew ...this weather .....its ace ...supposed to be a grand weekend too..

    hiya pie ..you ok today?I hope so ...

    right folks ......be good .

    Hello everyone.

    I fired her and re-hired her, lol. I totally got the wrong end of the stick. The bags of laundry were her large dusters that she uses on her feet to eliminate any streaks and the missing pods had fallen to the side of the washing machine. I apologized and it's all good. Mick, if she finds a quarter she leaves it on top of the counter. I wish I hadn't jumped the gun but that's the way it is. The bob cat sauntered along in front of my patio today, but didn't jump in. It looks like a lynx and it's scientific name is lynx rufus.

    Good job on the extra side job, every little bit helps.

    Thanks for your advice, Pauly.

    Cold, rainy and 42 deg. here

    Greetings Abbers,

    Cloudy & mid 40's here today but it could be worse. Heavy rain coming tomorrow into Sunday. I hope my granddaughter's party plans don't get washed out. Keeping my fingers crossed for that
    I brought 8 new chicks home today - 4 Barred Rocks & 4 Buff Orpingtons, adorable. They were just hatched Wednesday & flown from wherever to my local feed store. Didn't take too long to make themselves comfy & ate themselves into a coma by 2 pm, LOL

    Det, I think you will find lots of creative uses for the IP. Good for big batch cooking rice, beans, etc. I've even 'baked' an apple cake in mine believe it or not. You can brown meat all you like but just make sure nothing is stuck to the bottom of the inner pot before you seal it up to pressure cook or you'll get a 'Burn notice'.
    Congrats on the PT job, that's great!

    SK, sorry to hear about the drama with your cleaning lady, stuff happens. Glad you worked everything out OK!
    I hang a bag of niger seed from my bird feeder too for the finches, orioles, etc. The day I see a bobcat out my window is the day I have a coronary, haha! I've seen wandering horse, cows & goats around here & of course our resident fox. That's enough!!!! Oh, we also have plenty of groundhogs, skunks & possums, haha!

    Pauly, I guess you didn't make a snowman on your school holiday?? LOL

    PQ, yikes, you're working like a madwoman!!!! I hope you have peaceful weekend in your jammies

    Mick, you really do have an early spring going on there, lucky you!
    The bird feeder was left untouched overnight, no more raccoon visits, thankfully.

    Hello to Cyn & Pie & Sam!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Wow, some great news, a fantastic budget surplus during the run up to Brexit.

    Myself and the rest of the queue at the food bank were fcking enthralled at this announcement.

    I charge 400 for an hour of my time.

    Still waiting for my first gardening job.

    I wish I'd been sent to boarding school when I was a child.
    I'd love to be able to surf.

    A man in Liverpool has been arrested after driving a digger through the doors of a city-centre hotel amid a 600 pay dispute.

    Observers were shocked by the trail of devastation left by the suspect, although they were less so when he stole the towels.

    Our Parliament is so fcking dim you could process film in the Cabinet room.

    Last week I visited my proctologist's office for my first rectal exam.

    His new nurse, Evelyn, took me to an examining room and told me to get undressed, have a seat and wait until the doctor was available. She said that he would only be a few minutes.

    I changed and donned the green knee-length gown the nurse gave me. As I sat down I noticed there were three items on the stand next to the examination table:

    A Tube of K-Y jelly,
    A rubber glove
    And a beer

    When the doctor finally arrived I said, "Hey Doc, I'm a little confused, this is my first exam... I know about the K-Y and the glove but I cannot imagine why you have the beer?

    At that Doctor Paul became noticeably outraged and stormed over to the door

    He flung the door open and yelled at the top of his voice to his nurse...

    "Dang it Evelyn !!! I said a Butt Light "!

It is better that you prepare yourself, then we will see you in court".

    London, Thames England
