    May 24th

    MAE ALL....starting new thread.

    Pi...I've been hearing from several people how effective and streamlined their medical visits are. Maybe another positive coming out of this pandemic. I'm glad the pup is having less pain and I hope they find out the cause soon. Good suggestion about tuning in and watching a yoga class to begin with. I had my camera covered till my son saw it and rolled his eyes. That's when he disabled it. LOL

    Mick...doing better today than I was yesterday. Was really feeling off / down / depressed so ended up spending most of the day reading. My escape. Whatever was going on has left and my mood is good today. Actually spent some time this morning learning the new software program till I got totally lost and decided enough of that. LOL

    Lav...when I logged on this morning saw the little red dot and thought someone has sent me a pm. Up popped the thanks/like link. Det will be so happy. LOL We've just ended our gloomy rainy weather and should be in for heat and sunshine most of the week. I'll have to go over to the garden and see what's happening there. Unlike the US we don't have to pay taxes on gambling/lottery winnings. When I won a tournament in Vegas one time they withheld the tax but then I just filed a US income tax form and got it all back. LOL That was a mighty fine looking loaf of bread.

    Feeling quite hungry this morning so off to the kitchen to get breakfast started. Will check back in later and see how everyone's doing.....PPQP

    hiya all ...well how are we then? good I hope ...Ive been rehashing the railway ...is now work in progress at the raised bit at the back,then tidying up ,and then made up 3 hanging baskets ...too windy to put them out yet tho ..
    Well the country is in uproar over the Dominic Cummings saga ...there is a good portion of the country said if he is not sacked then they are going to breach the govt guidelines ...He is an arrogant obnoxious man ..I have nevr met him nor do I wish to ...but he is one of those folk Id happily put a lump of wood over his head .

    this article is well worth reading ......for me it is pretty accurate...the world leaders panicked ..there was no strategy ...the one here has been bust open

    Nobel prize-winning scientist: the Covid-19 epidemic was never exponential - The Post


    my opinion...but interesting stuff

    hiya pie ...sorry i missed you yesterday..glad you are fitting into the nae booze mould again ..hopefully the puppy will be pain free soon

    hiya ppqp ..glad you are better today..glad you managed to get out of it ...Im the same I get downers now and again ,but mange to kick myself out of them I usually exercise or do as you do ...lose myself in a book..Im getting back into exercise again ...bronchitis did me in ..but getting there now probably go for a good walk next week .and Im doing cardio etc daily now you take care .

    hiya pauly ..you good girl?hope so ..you doing anything over the weekend?stay safe and look after yourself .

    hiya Lav you good? did you get any plants ?Ive got loads of spare tomato plants like about 50!!yes I saw the bread..I found this ...

    Concise Guide To Polish Bread – Eat Polska if you happen to do number 6 ........ship em over !!!!

    hiya det ..you ok?

    teegeee ...hope things are on the mend thoughts are with you ..


    right peeps take care

    The Government have been criticised over the last few months for having a muddled message regarding the public and Coronavirus.

    But I must say that I do like the clarity of their new slogan which has been drafted by Dominic Cummimgs and released by Number 10 in the last hour.

    DONT STAY AT HOME

    DONT SELF-ISOLATE

    and

    DONT GIVE A SHIT..

    The best time of my life was the 4 months I got to stay all-expenses-paid at this hotel.... wifi, room service, full streaming, pool, hot tub.

    With how long I dragged out that obviously open-and-shut murder trial though, I had the rest of that jury fcking livid.

    Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has described Dominic Cummings as 'just someone trying to do the best by their four-year-old'.

    Or 'Boris', as he prefers to be known.

    A priest, a Rabbit and a Minister walk into a bar.
    The barman asks the Rabbit, "What do you want?"
    The Rabbit replied, "I don't know, I'm only here because of autocorrect"

    I had to leave the circus after a trapeze accident.

    I thought I knew the ropes.

    "Man to appear in court after alleged drunken assault of police officer"

    Shouldn't the police officer have been charged instead? It's bad enough being drunk on duty without hitting someone.

    My personal trainer keeps telling me that nothing is impossible.

    So I’ve asked him to draw me up a diet plan that allows me to get a six pack whilst eating three pizzas a day and doing no exercise.

    I heard an ice cream van on our street today.
    I thought to myself; what the fck,an ice cream man with two metre long arms.

    The Govt have just announced emergency funding of £154 million to encourage the public to ditch their cars and switch to cycling as we come out of the lockdown.

    Good luck to Dominic Cummings then as he tries to go 187 miles up the A1 to see his mother with his wife and toddler strapped to the back of his bike.

    Re: May 24th

    Good evening Abbers!

    So now we have chilly weather back but I’m not complaining. I see the heat & humidity they are predicting for the rest of the week, oh boy.

    PQ, enjoy the yoga if you can do it, Lol. My right knee is not so bendable anymore. Must be getting old or something, haha!
    I do have video access to chair Pilates though. Good for people like me with a history of shitty balance. And of course good old walking when I can
    Glad your day has gone well so far!!

    Mick, no Amish plant sales on Sundays but I will be going tomorrow on the holiday.
    I am 100% convinced that no scientist & certainly no politician knows what the fu*k they’re talking about
    This virus is so new, there are no studies to refer to. I believe eventually they are going to recognize that & retract all the BS they are spewing now. We just need to use good common sense & keep ourselves away from each other until this virus dies out. With all those idiots crowding the beaches this weekend - how many are going to end up sick & dying???

    Hello to Pie, Pauly, Det & our girl Cyn

    Have a good night everyone & stay safe!

    Re: May 24th

    Mae everybody, PQ, thanks for starting us up yesterday, hope the sad mood has passed and I totally understand, I'm exactly like that what a rollercoaster of emotions and moods with all that's going on! Mick, interesting article, I am just going with the flow and hoping for the best with this shit, Lav, those idiots at the beaches and water parks, parties over the weekend are a bunch of assholes that are gonna get all of us locked down again! I'm all for opening up but SLOWLY! That was just ridiculous, I also don't think our gov here shoulda let salons open so soon, there's been two instances in different states where the hairdressers infected people, too much too soon me thinks, Pie, glad you're getting back into the swing of things much love to all and wishes for a great BF Monday!
    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!

    Re: May 24th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Memorial Day here, remembering those who gave their lives for our country. I hope to hell that can’t look down & see what’s going on in their country these days. It’s just all BS!
    Yes, we did get the flowers & have planted up all the deck pots, looks nice. Now I just need to remember to water them every day. I think I’ll write myself a note, haha!
    No parades or family BBQs today, sad.

    Pauly, healthcare workers have to be tested in a regular basis. Maybe that’s something to consider for you& your workmates.
    Keep your mask on & sanitize your space & wash your hands in between clients.
    I'm not going to allow the ignorance of others infect me, you shouldn’t either!

    Mick, your garden is probably growing too big just like our is haha! YB keeps adding more veggies & small fruits like gooseberries - who eats gooseberries anyway??
    Today he picked up a climbing cucumber plant but he doesn’t eat cucumbers, LOL
    My balance has definitely been off since I whacked my head (20 years this coming November) but it seems to be getting a little worse these days. Scares me a bit, falling is not fun. I hope the chair pilates helps, certainly can’t hurt anything.

    Hello to the missing - Det, Pie, PQ & Cyn. Thinking of you all.

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Re: May 24th

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...like you I'm taking it day by day. I accept the fact that my moods are going to swing and am not stressing about it. Salons were allowed to open today but a lot of them are staying closed. I'm not going anywhere, just doing what is best for me and mine.

    Mick...I'm with you, doing the right thing regardless of what other idiots are doing. I'm just glad I'm not trying to keep a business going through all of this. I was out to the garden early this morning as well. Just wanted to see how everything fared after all this rain. Spent some time on the new software, got a useless email from the boss which I ignored and had diddly squat for cards during the bridge game this afternoon. Oh well, life goes on. LOL

    Lav...I bet the deck looks great with all the planted pots, now just remember to water them. Is YB responsible for harvesting all his own veg/fruit plants? I learned my lesson early and only plant what I know I'll use up. I am not into canning! I'm sure you're being careful in regards to your balance, didn't realize you had banged your head years ago. I have found myself a little off balance lately as well. I think it's lack of activity, not going to work 5-6 days a week. I am forcing myself to get up and move if I've been sitting for too long, something I would always do at work.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: May 24th

    Mae everybody, Lav those hairdressers and the customers that were exposed were all wearing masks(so they say) I dunno half the girls aren't even coming back yet so I'm officially wondering if it was even worth it to open, telling people their favorite stylists aren't there is hard then I get stuck with them and some of them I just don't like, Mick there's never too many toms! Think of all the things you can make haha, PQ, yea the moods during this are weird, sometimes I feel crazy, I've also had alot of dizziness and unsteadiness think it's just nerves are shot and I feel overwhelmed, could be my old friend allergies, @treegirl(Cyn) I'm thinking of you much love to all and wishes for a great BF Tuesday? Love you all.

    What’s not to love about a hangover-free start to the day? Veterinary visit for foster pup this morning. Hope to learn something useful.

    Re: May 24th

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...on the flip side there are some stylists where I go that I don't like. I go to a walk in salon and you get whoever is available. They hired a new girl about a year ago now and all 5 times that I've had her I've been so disappointed. I don't know why but my hair just doesn't lie properly after she cuts it. You stay safe.

    Pi...exactly, isn't it amazing how much more energy you have when you don't feel like death warmed over. LOL Fingers crossed that you get some answers this morning.

    @treegirl thinking of you.

    Off to the garden, will check back in a bit....PPQP
