    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    And good afternoon all how are you today then? Hope all is well with you . the current temperature here is 29 degrees overcast and very very humid too was up in the loft this morning to in part of my trains but had to come down it was like an oven up there all that was missing was the stuffing I have just done some work in the garden but again too hot. Well today they announced the new lockdown rules in a nutshell you can do what you want if you can keep 2 metres away which is now been reduced by the way to 1 m + as much as possible what a crock still mention of face masks except on public transport you can stay over at someone's house now in fact 6 households can we talk together in the same house not possible unless you live in Buckingham Palace I've got a dental appointment next Monday what a performance that is I turn up outside and then phone them the nurse comes out takes my temperature if it is ok ok she then gives me a little bag containing mask gloves and a pair of over boots she then takes me straight into the dentists room when I get in the chair he does the business I'm then taken out of the dentist room made to wait in a corner and then called forward to the reception area my protective clothing is then removed pay for it all hand sanitizer and off I jolly well pop and because dentists are not government funded as such it costs me me another 35 for the protective clothing not bad eh hope everyone is doing ok I will try and put some jokes up later on I'm supposed to go up to see Amy tomorrow and measure up her garden in her words just in case I want to help haha I think this black lives matter is getting a bit crazy too perhaps it should have been called Black lives matter as well because the song people and it is happening over this country now it seems the messages black lives matter and no one else does which clearly is not the issue I'm sure Donald will sort it all out not take care all speak later

    Hey Pauly, I just read that some athletic team will discontinue using the name, Cougars, so as not to offend older ladies. Right, that’s what I’m going to worry about. Not!

    MAE ALL...

    Pi...up and into something most mornings is something I'm striving for. LOL I figure if I force myself to go for a walk everyday at least it's something. Just read your post to Pauly about the Cougars. Are they serious!!! People obviously have too much time on their hands.

    Pauly...it's got to be really tough for small business owners. Even though their allowed to open doesn't mean people are going to come. I don't think expanding and hiring more staff is the answer though. I think the protesters have gone overboard. Pretty soon there won't be a black face seen anywhere.

    Mick...it seems like we have the same weather today, hot, humid and overcast. I think the new procedures at the dentist is going to continue for some time now. I'm ok with that. They've announced here that our Doctor's offices are now allowed to charge for the protective clothing that they have to wear. I haven't been to my doctor's yet so I'll have to wait and see if they implement it.

    Been a busy morning for me as the boss wants to open the Racquet Club and of course he's left everything to the last minute. I have a bridge game booked this afternoon and that takes precedent! Have a good all....PPQP

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    Hey folks,

    Can’t even sit outside tonight because it’s so hot & humid. You should see this hair of mine - it’s really BIG, haha!!!
    Had to be out early this morning for fasting bloodwork. Anxious to see if my cholesterol is coming down since I’m back on the statin. Damn these doctors, I’m sticking with my Nurse practitioner, she listens & understands what I am saying

    PQ, at this point in my life I could not sit for a 2 hr online meeting, nope! I give you much credit my friend
    No kids here to feed today, I needed the rest, LOL
    My high school mascot was a cougar, they better not think about changing it!!!

    Pie, maybe we should have an ‘ugly hair contest’, LOL. I just feel so sloppy all the time.
    Enjoy your yoga or not - it will wait, right?

    Pauly, sounds like your shop owner is quite a dreamer. Hopefully he wakes up before making drastic changes to the shop.
    How are the boys doing?

    Mick, I didn’t realize you have to pay out of pocket for dental care. I know it's pricey & tacking on a surcharge just makes it worse/ Sorry about that.
    So you think Amy has a to-do garden list for you? Haha, good luck!

    Hello to Det, Sam & Cyn.

    Still hoping i can get outside for a few minutes before dark without sweating like a pig, haha!
    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    good morning all
    looks like we're in for a bit of a break with this weather, been way too warm for my liking. One person that works with me had to stop by 10 am, heat related. We were locating a boundary line that is called Beautiful Run, it was everything but, thick as could be. Part of me thinks of taking off work in the summer, 'twould that I could.

    Anyone heard from TG? hope all is ok there.

    hope everyone is having a good summer, it's crazy times and not sure what "normal" is anymore.

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    Ahoy hoy ABerooooodles!

    yes, dreadfully hot and such so I have my special hat that you soak with water and a smilar scarf kind of thingy, they do help.

    twilight went perfectly I'm happy to say...getting the hang of this by jove.

    Pauly, the internet seems to be composed of half advertisements and half whining about everything under the sun. Good grief. I feel you.

    we tried a new Italian deli on Sunday and that was great. oinkfest.

    no twilight tonight so wondering what to do with the chicken I'm thawing out. maybe a chicken korma? hmmm...

    Mick, more dental woes? hope you aren't in a bunch of pain.

    I did brave a haircut recently and went fine and dandy. Lav, no idea if I've had the C19. hopefully I have and am now somewhat
    immune to it but really I dunno.

    big news here: they are reopening the water parks so girly is flipping out to go, so prolly this weekend will be the chlorine fun-fest. ick!

    Sam, good to see you here in the new 'normal' ack

    protesters in some areas are openly patrolling 'no police zones' with rifles now. I sure hope someone with brains and a very careful hand can guide this nation
    to sanity but looking around I'm not seeing that and I fear some very dark times could be ahead. so sad. and a full 1/3 of the US was unable to come up with rent for
    the month of June. yikes! we are really up the creek kids and there are so many really down and out peeps in our midst. Anyone with a roof over their heads will be
    pretty fortunate going forward.

    Made a short video clip of me making a French sandwich 'pan bagnat' I'll prolly toss up on instagram. Came out yummy, though I couldn't talk the girls into a truly
    authentic version with anchovies. oh well.

    Pie, I'm using the headspace APP and it's pretty good. As long as you like Aussie accents that is . ha! the 10m sessions feel
    too rushed but the 15 and 20 are just right.

    olive oil tip of the week: Partana Sicicilian EVOO from Amazon. Get the big 101oz tin is less than 40.00 and is remarkably good.

    borrowed a new camera lens from my boss last night to do some comparisons as I'm needing to upgrade. so today will be an interesting experiment as I have 3 shoots
    for the day. And.... I better get ready for them.

    be well loves!

    Re: 21 June ...summer solstice

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...I'd stick with the nurse practitioner too. In my mind they might as well be doctors. Did things cool down a little for you? We've had high temps with little humidity and are now headed into cool and wet. OK by me, I'm not camping. Thunderstorm warning just went into affect as I'm typing. I'm in need of a haircut too. It would be really big if I actually took the time to wash it. LOL

    Sam...I have surveyed in heat before and it's not fun, especially by the sounds of the Beautiful Run boundary you're working on. Taking the summer off would be ideal if you could manage it.

    Pauly...we're still waiting to hear what the plan is for school this fall. Lots of ideas being floated around but they're in the same boat as the rest of us. Still glad I'm not raising kids in this day and age. Hope work is going ok and the owner isn't stressing you out too much.

    Det...a pic of your hat and scarf would be great. Glad it helps in that heat. Glad your twilight shoot went good, I didn't realize you were using a drone. I love those, lots of fun. News today was that they're thinking of opening our water parks July 1st. We shall have to see how that goes. Protesters patrolling with rifles...what has this world come too!

    Mick...double brownie points for you doing your FIL's yard work in that heat. Bridge game was ace and I'm scheduled for another one this afternoon. "Netted a good one"....here's your coat. LOL Been waiting for content from the prog-coord to finish the racquet club website and just saw an email go by saying she was moving her son and girlfriend and will work on it over the weekend. That really pissed me off. So decided to post on the thread instead of firing off an email. Since I've been posting I've calmed down and decided F*K her. I have the time now to get it done but will soon be tied up with implementing the new membership database software. I've decided that I can set my own priorities and she'll just have to wait or do it herself. Glad to hear the oven is on, I on the other hand made a tuna sandwich for my lunch. LOL

    Time to get ready for bridge. Have a good day all....PPQP
