    Re: w/c Feb 24

    Good evening folks!

    Had a lovely day except for the nearly two hours I spent at the dentist, haha! That guy invents problems to fix, I swear.
    Today is actually my granddaughter's birthday but the party on Sunday was fun. The chicks are getting bigger & eating like little pigs.

    Mick, glad to see you are still among the living
    I am jealous of your early spring, even if it is only temporary. We haven't had our blizzard yet this winter season so I guess it's going to be a late one.
    Hope you feel better very soon!

    Det, veggie soup is the best
    Glad you are feel better, stay that way! I hope your training went well!

    Pauly, happy birthday to your Brady! Seems to be a popular day for people to be born, I've seen a few others on FB today.
    Keep that positive vibe going!

    PQ, you must be getting tired of winter as well, ho hum.
    Yep, I only got 8 chicks this year. I have 12 hens now so adding a few more won't be too bad. My daughter thinks she may want a few this summer but I'm not sure if she'll follow thru - we shall see. I'll be happy to give her a few

    SK, sorry you are still having vertigo issues. I'm not entirely sure what stress has to do with that. Did the doc recommend any testing or anything?
    Please don't attempt to drive when you are feeling like that. It's only natural to want to get out & about but let someone else do the driving, OK?
    I think your laptop is a lemon!!! NO way you should be having so much trouble with the thing!

    Cyn, think of you during this crazy time

    Hey there Pie & Sam!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    MAE ALL…
    Det…that was a quick recovery. I’m sure it’s directly related to you healthy lifestyle. Well done. Yes it seems like this deepfreeze has been going on forever. The sunny days do help though. With this climate change and everybody’s weather changing I’m moving to where the Chinooks end up! Your soup sounds great.

    Mick…glad you chose the latter, might as well get active, at least you can feel you’ve accomplished something. Hope you don’t get the predicted freezing rain and ice next week. After the week you’ve had that’ll be tough to take. I actually did know that a lot of Canada was made up of Scottish decent, me included. Well it looks like the boss actually kept to his word. The program coord realized she had all these new programs starting in March and had forgotten to ask me to update the website and create new online registration. Think she was scared to bring it up to me as she went to the boss instead. Chicken! Or maybe idiot is the word. Boss asked me to clone the existing online programs and she could do all the updates. Works for me. It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes her, not to brag but I would have had it completed by end of today.

    Pauly…more power to you staying positive at work. Remember you can’t control what’s going on but you can control how you react. You and I are peas in a pod, constantly worrying about everything. I think they’ll put “she was worried this was going to happen” on my headstone. LOL Hot chicken sandwiches for supper tonight.

    SK…yup, I thought the mouse was configured for a left handed person. You should have just switched hands all would have been ok. LOL I can relate to having to tab through screens. Haven’t experienced the frozen cursor in Windows 10 but a lot of my programs will hang for periods of time. Frustrating if I’m in a hurry to finish something. Sorry you’re still experiencing the vertigo and like Lav says, don’t you be driving.

    Lav…you’re getting pretty good at beating me to the post, must be g/kidless today. I am so done with this winter!! So do you know if all the new chicks are female yet? I don’t know but I think actually raising chickens might be an eye opener for your daughter.

    A coworker/friend’s mother passed away last week and the funeral is tomorrow. So I’ll be taking the afternoon off and I won’t worry/think about work. I’ve come a long way. Temps are supposed to soar to 24F so that’ll be nice. Then it’s right back to the deepfreeze for the next 2 weeks.

    I’ve learned to beat the system, typed this in word so am going to copy and paste it onto the thread. Wish me luck.

    Success!!! Have a great evening all....PQP

    heya hey ABernoooodles!

    Mick, sorry yer feeling rubbish...this too shall pass and I'm living proof. Cool info on our northern neighbors. i had no idea.

    SK, yes you're so right... in the past being sick was a strong trigger for me and I'm so grateful that my program is strong
    enough to allow me to grow into a better place in my life. yay! that sums it up i sure hope there is something tangible
    you can do for the vertigo. I'm sure they've checked for inner ear complications?

    PPQ, doesn't sound like the funeral will be a bad stressor for you which is great. i think I'd be able to manage my emotions/stresses
    much better these days under most circumstances. That's the idea i suppose... we experience and we grow best we can.
    Glad to hear you're getting somewhat warmer at least. Any ski trips on the books?

    Lav, maybe your dentist is bored? LOL Happy Birthday to your wee one!

    work training went very well. This is a company and service that i can get behind. yay! Then made it to the gym at a new location.
    I'ts way newer/nicer than the location I normally go to. Even the benches in the locker room are fancy granite. wow! and it's clean

    lymph glands are almost not swollen anymore... feeling mostly decent and looking forward to a really solid sleep.

    new podcast report: 'philosophize this' which is big fun for hobby students of philosophy as I am. Epicureanism last night which was neat.
    Into the stoics tonight! I'm such a geek

    be well m'loves! zzzzzzzzzzzz

    hiya everyone else ..

    The inventor of the jigsaw puzzle has died today...

    ...his wife is said to be in 1500 pieces!

    50 years late but Donald Trump finally went to Vietnam.

    This irish guy takes his donkey into the pub and says "£100 to anyone who can make my stubborn donkey lie down £5 a go"
    Loads try and fail eventually a big scottish guy says "ok I will have a go"
    He takes a big run up and kicks the donkey in the balls, the poor animal brays in pain and drops to the floor in agony and the scotsman takes the £100.
    The next day paddy is back with the donkey he says "£100 to anyone who can make my stubborn donkey nod then shake his head" he smiles at the scotsman thinking that will stop that trick.
    The scotsman steps up and calmly whispers in the donkeys ear "remember me" the donkey nods his head "do you want me to do what I did to you yesterday" the donkey shook it's head and the scotsman took his £100.

    Be on the lookout guys for this hot girl and her sexy friend. They are hanging around some of the big 24 hour tesco carparks. When you're putting your shopping away they ask you for a lift to McDonalds. They are very convincing and hot as fck, once in your car one of them starts climbing all over you rubbing herself against you l while the other one steals your wallet! I've had mine taken on the 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th, twice yesterday and probably again tomorow!

    I phoned the doctor’s receptionist the other day for the results of my medical tests. Initially she refused to tell me them over the phone, but after I verbally roasted her for her God complex, she relented “the glucose results are fine, your blood pressure is within normal limits, but your cholesterol level are marginal” then she added “your colonoscopy results just came in and the proctologist says they finally found your head”.

    What's pink and sits at the bottom of the sea shooting fish?

    MAE ALL...

    Det...the funeral was lovely. I was there to support my friend, only met her Mom a couple times. No ski trips in the near future, that was really a one off. The new gym sounds nice, how's their dress code?

    Mick...we made it to 50 today, far cry from your 80. Glad you're continuing to feel better. The picture of the chinooks cracked me up, you still got it. How did pilates go? I've tried it once and never again.

    Pauly..."I'm doing something with chicken tonight haha" LOL all kinds of responses came to mind. It's mac & cheese for us tonight.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang, time to get out of the fancy duds and into PJ's. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Greetings Abbers,

    Geez PQ, it was warmer in Canada today than it was here - how did that happen???
    They're talking about several small snow events coming up for us, oh well.

    Mick, stop making me jealous of your spring blooms. Your bunnies are starting to look like professional models
    Apparently some of my way back relatives were Scottish too, how about that?

    Det, glad you are getting over your cold. Sounds like things are moving in the right direction for you, yay!!!

    I have a new Instant Pot project:

    I haven't tried them yet but will soon & make mine without dairy of course!

    Pauly, you're lucky in that you already have a couple of grandkids to turn your attention to. I wandered around hopeless, sad & extremely lonely for several years before the grandkids started appearing. I started raising chickens, adopting dogs & doing whatever I could to relieve the empty nest blues.
    It's funny, on the one hand you are relieved when the kids are grown & have turned out OK but on the other hand you feel the loss of their constant presence. We have to find just the right substitutes.

    Hello to SK, hope you are feeling better!

    Hi to Cyn, Pie & Sam.

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Hello Abbers,

    Still here, just working my little fingers to the bone... basement all painted now, still organizing it a bit. There is lots still to give away before moving, but things are all organized and labeled, so looking good. Now to get the "staging" done on the other floors. What a project.

    Mick, glad you are feeling better. I am Scots, Irish and English. Do you know about one of the big battles of Scotland, called Dunbar - a bloody rout - then the survivors (some as young as 12) were forced to march and most died (somewhere that they recently found their remains next to a cathedral - York?). Marched onto the coast, some survived and were put to work on ships that went to Canada... many of the Nova Scotia families are descended from these folks... such amazing stories of survival. Love the bunny pics, jealous of your weather!

    Lav, love to think of your chicks "eating like pigs"! Made a wonderful Chicken Paprikash in IP last night. It was done before I was ready to eat it, but it smelled so wonderful that I ate it standing in the kitchen wearing my painting clothes! Pauly, sending you big hugs - little Brady is 21?! Sheesh, time flies. PPQ - you must be the Chinese sign of the Monkey, like me --- no end to worrying about what might have to be fixed! Glad things are working at work. Det, the gym sounds great - and the philosophies too! SK, poor dear... there must be something that can help you - this is going on so long! Sending you healing -- do you listen to any guided meditations? I wonder if that would help... sending you big hugs too. Hi to Sam and Pi, hope all is well.

    Well, off to work. I hope there is some melting before 3/12, as there is some serious yard work that needs to happen here - a million fallen branches, half-stuck in snow... not too attractive! PS - "court", not a clue... only the damn autocorrect, I have no idea what I meant, but no courts in our lives, royal or legal. Kind glad about that, LOL.

    Wishing all well for Thor's Day.
