      hiya all..how are we all today? good I hope ...its raining on/off here..very unpredictable ..weather is like our politics all over the place...been working on the lighting on the trains ..every light now is on a switch in every house ..Ive put loads of figures in them too..just started soldering up the lamposts .hope we are all doing good,

      Went to the Supermarket earlier, there was a sign on the door, ‘No food or drink allowed inside’...so I went home.

      One minute me is having a spliff in the cockpit with the captain ..

      Next we is emergency landing in valencia and sliding down a shute to get some tapas.

      We is having fierce munchies

      Donald trump has blamed computer games as the reason behind the mass shootings!... if this was the case, wouldn't people be running round farmyards throwing birds at pigs...?

      diane abbot was asked about what she thought of Kashmir and she said that it was warmer than wool.

      The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

      On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

      The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

      The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

      Conclusion:

      Eat & drink what you like. It's speaking English that kills you.

      A three-year-old little boy was examining his testicles while taking a bath.

      "Mum," he asked, "are these my brains?"

      "Not yet."

      After a trial had been going on for three days, Finley, the man accused of committing the crimes, stood up and approached the judge's bench. "Your Honor, I would like to change my plea from 'innocent' to 'guilty' of the charges".

      The judge angrily banged his fist on the desk. "If you're guilty, why didn't you say so in the first place and save this court a lot of time and inconvenience" he demanded?

      Finley looked up wide-eyed and stated, "Well, when the trial started I thought I was innocent, but that was before I heard all the evidence against me".

      Poem for Women
      He didn't like the casserole,
      And he didn't like my cake.
      My biscuits were too hard...
      Not like his mother used to make.

      I didn't perk the coffee right,
      He didn't like the stew,
      I didn't mend his socks
      The way his mother used to do.

      I pondered for an answer,
      I was looking for a clue;
      Then I turned around and smacked him...
      Like his Mother used to do.

      A male patient is lying in a hospital bed with an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. He is still heavily sedated from a four hour operation. A female nurse's aide appears to sponge his hands and feet.

      "Nurse," he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"

      Embarrassed, the young aide replies, "I don't know. I'm only here to wash your hands and feet."

      He struggles again to ask, "Are my testicles black?"

      Reluctantly, the aide pulls back the covers and raises his gown. She holds his penis in one hand and his testicles in her other hand, takes a close look at his genitals and says, "There's
      nothing wrong with them!"

      The man pulls off his oxygen mask and says slowly, "That was nice, but listen closely: Are...my...test...results...back?"

      Re: Week of Aug 4th

      Good Tuesday evening everyone,

      Canít wait for tomorrowís severe storms to clear the air around here. This summer has been brutal.
      I have all sorts of work coming in that I wasnít looking for but itís keeping me in the AC at least

      I just read that someone tried to do some shooting in a Baton Rouge Walmart this afternoon.
      Letís all agree that this violence is a direct result of HATE - the hate of people! The politics of the shooter doesnít matter. The mental health of the shooter is most likely not involved either as most mentally ill people are not violent.
      Fox News - 45ís fav TV show spouted more BS today that will result in more hate crimes. Keeping assault weapons out of the hands of civilians is the first step. Too bad 45 & his band of hateful helpers donít agree. If one of my children or grandchildren are ever victims of these hate crimes I will simply drop dead

      On that happy note Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night for all. I understand other countries are warning their citizens not to visit the US or they may be killed. Isnít that just splendid?

      I don't blame them Lav,look if we can't even go to a Garlic festival or shopping at Walmart then where can we go? It's gotten to the point of WHEN is the next bad shooting not IF and that's makes me really, really sad watching the news footage of the families who lost loved ones was just too much last night and I just broke down and cried,I hate crying! The state of the world just blows and makes me sick

      MAE ALL...

      Yes it does seem that every time you turn on the news there's another mass shooting somewhere. I don't blame you for putting your FB political posts on snooze Pauly. I agree with you Lav, I don't see why any civilian needs an assault weapon ever. A light switch in every house, just like in real life Mick. If the blue light had been interspersed with red I would have guessed cop car right off. Lo Soks like some garage/lawn sales in your future Det. Short post as I have a really sore back. Time to get horizontal. Have a good night all...PPQP

      Top O the Morning ABerdoooodlers!!

      fab stay-over at my gal's place last night, I brought my ipad with my music synthesizer APPS on it and her daughter really had fun
      jamming on it, great healthy fun had by all. Made salmon and broccoli for dinner, simple and yummo.

      The mental state of the shooter has everything to do with it. It's very true that the vast majority of mentally-ill are quite harmless but the
      tiny subfraction of them that are prone to unconscionable acts need to be helped/isolated/guns taken etc etc as a priority. ONLY a very sick
      mind is capable of hurting other people, whether it's with a truck as we saw in France, a gun, poison or whatever. The really scary thing is
      that there are no quick easy fixes for chronically ill violent people. This is going to take a very comprehensive approach and certainly will not
      be solved by knee-jerk media headlines screaming for bandaid solutions. Violent video games do not typically trigger actual violence in the vast
      majority of people, but for those with a mental health proclivity towards violence it appears they as well as social media and other influences
      are contributing factors. When I was residing in another state with very restrictive gun laws, a violent sick person attempted to buy a gun but
      was refused by the legal process. He simply constructed a molotov cocktail from a wine bottle and gasoline and chucked it into the pub where
      his intended victim was relaxing. This resulted in the death of 7 people and dozens critically burned/toxic smoke injured, also the building
      as well as both adjacent buildings burned to the ground causing millions in damage. All from a piece of untraceable trash that cost virtually nothing.
      It's truly frightening isn't it? when a persons intent is to cause harm there is almost no stopping them. A great number of these dangerous people
      do however post their violent intentions on social media and we need to be paying attention. The cries for help are often right there.

      Some of my T shirt designs incidentally are my artistic projection of concern over US hegemony globally. this will likely result in me receiving a bit
      of hate mail but we'll see. Hopefully I don't get any stalkers or death threats. Designs are coming together nicely so today I'm test-ordering,
      getting samples and continuing to get my marketing strategy dialed-in.

      Love is the antidote for hatred. Let us love everyone in spite of our differences. Spread love, not division. That's my plan anyhoo.

      At a Refuge meeting yesterday i was pleasantly surprised to find that two of the attendees will be my neighbors after i get moved into my GF's place...
      like literally 2 blocks away. So nice to have so healthy friends on location since it's a totally new area for me and i didn't know anyone there.

      that's a wrap for now... packing and studying continues....

      be well loves

      Re: Week of Aug 4th

      hiya all ..how are we then Amys birthday today ..so on the spend ..She is offto Scotland with b/f tomorrow.We were supposed to go to Cornwall wirth the van in Sept ..phoned up to book a site ..the lady said that at that time most of the facilitieswill be closed ..I thenphoned another site ..same sort of thing ...so bugger it ...booked and off to Tenerife again ...Los Gigantes hotel..thats the one with the beautiful sea view ..
      Interesting conversation re the use of firearms and shooting people and the folk carrying out the attacks .To say the mental state of the perp is responsible isnt really good enough.there are so many contributing factors to why the weapon is used ..those range for ease of purchasing weapons ,all the way through to the discharge of armed forces without descaling the thinking patterns and motivation that has been built in ..
      Hate of regime individual hate bullying social inadequacy jealousy ,greed anger ,lack of financial security ,drug fuelled drink fuelled religious beliefs ,gang culture ,..they all have the motive to play a part in it..and thats before we get to politics ,media,games etc..In a nutshell you cannot blanket everyone by saying its their mental state ..pre during and post all produce different mental states of mind .....anyway soap box away ..
      Det you are certainly coming up with the recipes ..salmon n broccoli..best of luck with the business give it the same oomph as you did to give up drinking ..you will be a winner .

      Pauly ...hows you ?hope all is good ..yup question answered if you look at the video ,I think its around the 8 second mark ,the woman in black reading the kindle is Julie ..I think we should get a discount for advertising their hotel!

      hiya Lav ...sack the shooting ..we will stick with Matthews Southern Comfort.....and Woodstock... as for not coming to the States ..i will be in Florida next May irrespective..

      Re: Week of Aug 4th

      Good evening all,

      Sitting out on the deck - post thunder storm & it’s definitely cooler, hope it lasts.
      There are a couple of hummingbirds dive bombing the feeder hanging about 6 feet away from my head, haha!
      Sorry about my mood the past few days but I have really had enough of this violence sh*t!!!!
      I was thinking today, back in the early 70’s when we first started in our careers things were VERY different. If the police suspected that you were up to no good they could find a way to legally detain you for a while until investigations were made. Of you were deemed safe then you were released. If you were found to be a potential problem you were placed in a state mental health hospital until things could be sorted out. But the laws changed & the state hospitals were closed down because they were basically hellholes. That’s when the homeless, drug & alcohol addicted people began filling up the streets in the bigger cities. People who were unable to care for themselves were tossed in the streets. Not to mention the influx of veterans post VietNam, awful. Human beings need better treatment, there’s no arguing there. We need a ton of social workers to find appropriate housing & mental health care for people, especially the vets! Have you ever read about the number of vets committing suicide in the parking lots of the VA Hospitals? It’s pathetic. If we could increase basic care for these people on the fringe we could greatly reduce these violent acts of pure hate & hopelessness.

      PQ, what happened to your back? I hope you’re OK

      Pauly, I don’t let anyone give me any stink about my ‘not drinking’. That’s their problem, not mine.

      Det, are you going to try to sell shirts on Amazon? That’s something I thought about over the years. Good luck.

      Mick, I missed the true hippie era by a few years but I was always with them in my heart, Lol
      Happy Birthday to Amy! I can’t believe you are planning another trip already, lucky dog

      Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a nice night!

      Mae everybody,Mick place is phenomenal! I had seen pics in the past from when you two went but getting to see up close how posh the resort is I'm jealous! Very nice hope Amy had a nice birthday,is she still working as a midwife? Lav,yep this shit has to end,I think beefed up security everywhere may help? Also allowing the security guards to actually be able to do their jobs would help,here in Vegas there's alot of security in places like up in my complex at work yet when we need them they can't do much except call the police and they're mostly elderly,retired people looking for extra money so that really doesn't help,I don't know I just know that I refuse to live scared,I just can't be on edge all the time,Kell has tries two new shops this week and the first one was great,on the west side,busy,etc but the owner was Asian and didn't understand that she's not a licensed barber but a licensed cosmotologist which means she can't use a straight razor and he freaked out cuz she wasn't using one and told her to leave,the shop she tried yesterday was a cocky guy who drinks beer on the job and he's the owner! Anyways she sat there all morning with no haircuts and told the guy it wasn't gonna work out and he proceeded to belittle her and tell her she was missing a great opportunity and she's a loser go back to the dive she's working at,on and on,I told her that Gus a tool and don't let it get you down,I hate job hunting! Anyways waves to PQ,Det and Sam hope we all have a great BF Thursday!
