    Nine medical tests you can do yourself.

    Wander into the back garden and pee on your neighbourís fence (again).

    If it dries quickly, you have high sodium (salt) levels and pending heart problems.
    If it attracts ants your sugar level is too high and you might be diabetic.
    If your pee is dark and of limited quantity, you are dehydrated.
    If your stream didnít reach the fence, you have a prostrate problem.
    If it is bright pink you have kidney problems.
    If you forgot to get your knob out and you peed your pants, you may have Alzheimerís.
    If you missed the fence you have Parkinsonís.
    If your stream smells meaty, your cholesterol level is far too high.
    If you canít smell your urine, you have Coronavirus.

    I've heard from a reliable source that there is more bacteria on my kitchen work surfaces than there is on my toilet seat.
    Note to self: Stop peeing in the sink.

    Just went to the pub but I couldn't get drunk.

    I think they're watering down the hand sanitiser.

    How the Internet Was All Started, It is True, Honest!
    In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called Amazon Dot Com.

    She said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

    And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

    And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

    Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. The drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent.

    But this success did arouse envy. A man named Mac Enron did secret himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horse-fly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.

    And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

    And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."

    And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known "eBay," he said, "We need a name that reflects what we are," and Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner-Operators." "YAHOO," said Abraham.

    And that is how it all began.

    At a posh Las Vegas casino, a blackjack dealer and a player with a 13 count in his hand are arguing about whether or not it is appropriate to tip the dealer.

    The player says, "When I get bad cards, it's not the dealer's fault. Accordingly, when I get good cards, the dealer obviously has nothing to do with that either, so why should I tip him?"

    The dealer replies, "When you eat at a restaurant do you tip the waiter?"

    "Yes," the gambler concedes.

    "Well then, he serves you food; whether it's good or bad isn't up to him. By the same token, I'm serving you cards, so you should tip me."

    "OK," says the gambler, "but the waiter gives me what I ask for. I'll take an 8."

    An angry motorist went back to a garage where he'd purchased an expensive battery for his car six months earlier.

    "Listen," the motorist grumbled to the owner of the garage, "when I bought that battery you said it would be the last battery my car would ever need. It died after only six months!"

    "Sorry," apologized the garage owner. "I didn't think your car would last longer than that."

    An eighty year old man was having an annual physical. As the doctor was listening to his heart with the stethoscope, he began muttering, "Oh oh!"

    The man asked the doctor what the problem was.

    "Well," said the doc, "you have a serious heart murmur. Do you smoke?"

    "No", replied the man.

    "Do you drink in excess?"

    "No"

    "Do you have a sex life?"

    "Yes, I do!"

    "Well," said the doc, "I'm afraid with this heart murmur, you'll have to give up half your sex life"

    Looking perplexed, the old man said, "Which half... the LOOKING or the THINKING?"

    Greetings Mick & everyone!

    We are kidless once again, haha! Grateful for his improved (medicated) behavior. It’s really a world of difference.
    I imagine it went below freezing overnight, it was 33 when I got up. Chilly bit nice

    Mick, loved the 9 medical tests, haha!
    So your bunnies are now tree eaters? That's weird. I walked into the chicken house this morning not knowing there was a leaf stuck to the bottom of my shoe. The leaf detached itself as I was leaving & 16 young chickens went into battle to get the stupid leaf, haha. I came back later to see the tail section of the lone rooster had some serious damage, geez. Those little girl chickens are fierce. I need to get the rooster moved down to the Amish farm real soon.

    Hello to PQ, Pauly, Det, Pie, Cyn & Anjicia.

    Hope everyone has a nice night!

    morning all
    nice fall weekend, colors definitely coming out. Been working pretty non stop which is a good thing. Here's one of the mountain boundaries I've been doing.
    acp78HRgS%CPi+ccs03rYA.jpg RUWK7mx3R0yghLeTVEdziQ.jpg

    It has a dead cow and everything. Oh the smell. Folks selling the land aren't worried about burying it. Guess it conveys with the land.

    off to hopefully finish today.
    Be well folks!

    Morning all we have a yellow weather warning here untill tomorrow. Heavy rain stormy and windy. I was to go on another coastal walk with a differant meetup group but had to be cancalled . Yes Killiney is a lovely fro the park and Hill. Vico road ihas stunning views of the beach and beyond. the beach is nice but now stoney due t coastal erosion it used to a very sandy beach. Was out Sunday i got the train to a small town town north Dublin. Not much there really just a small but nice sandy beach but nice to get out of your own area. Not much happening today staying put with the bad weather on the way. Still more bad news to come about this pandemic more restrictions looks all but only essential places open and visiting and outdoor gatherings the same or may be stricter we will know this evening. Lovely pics there Sam and nice land. I wonder why they won't bury the poor cow or who owns it. Not saying much for animal care ahh well we don't the full details. Where is it? Happy Monday if its possible.

    Donald Trump says he will leave the USA if he loses the election.

    I've heard there's this lovely little retreat called Rikers Island.

    Wife: I've badly injured my knee
    Me: Are Eenie, Meenie and Mo ok?
    Wife: I hate you.

    At last, Trump is finally going to do something truly Presidential.

    He's gonna lose an election

    “Hello darling, run along now and get me the latest library book on Donald Trunp”

    “Sexist, condescending bastard” she shouted.

    “That’s the one” I replied.

    My grandad kept going on about how he was saved by his left wing views during the war.

    Definitely wasn’t his right wing. That one was shot off.

    Re: October the 18th ...

    Good evening folks!

    Cloudy today but not super cold. Did a run to Costco to replenish the pantry after my grandson’s visit, haha!!
    The leaves are looking nicer every day, I love fall.

    Sam, I see you are doing some hill walking yourself, wow!
    The dead cow thing - I hear about that on our community’s Facebook bitch page quite often, gross.
    Hope your day was good!

    Anjicia, sounds like it’s time for some inside plans until the weather clears. Maybe take up a new hobby?

    Pauly, good news on the Test results!
    I could swear I have a cold half the time but I know it’s just allergies. They never really end for me anymore.

    Det, good to see you! I’m not familiar with St George, UT, is that Mormon territory? I only ask because my brother’s kids had a lot of problems with them when they lived in Idaho. They ended moving to California anyway.

    Mick, wow I would love to tour Chatsworth House myself, looks awesome! Hope you have a lovely Christmas stay!!
    Between your bunnies & my dog, nothing is safe haha!
    Sorry about the dental issue, ouch!!

    Hello to PQ, Pie & Cyn!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Mae everybody, Mick that looks like a fun spot to spend Chrimbo in Lav, yes I think the allergies never really leave for me either, too dusty here! Felt fine yesterday then today back to sneezeville, I lived in St. George in 98-99 I'll NEVER live in Utah ever again! Before that was Cedar City which is 45 minutes north from there and it snows St. George is just like Vegas as far as weather goes, Set glad you had a good time, I always think Vegas sucks but then I move and miss it! I tried 4 times to get outta this town but I guess it's just my home. I'm fine with that, I just wish they'd do more for the homeless people around here, lately they're fricken everywhere! Waves to the gang and wishes for a great BF Tuesday!

    hi all how are we then? all ok ..we still dont know much about this lockdown Doris and the Mayor of Manchester cant agree..so Doris says he will impose it ...that should be interesting...the argument is over money ...not health or protecting lives ..and bearing in mind the covid rate Mancs has got maybe the emphasis is on the wrong angle .

    Dont panic ...have a brew ...

    hiya Pauly ...hows you then ?hows the sneezes doing? hope they have gone ..you take care .

    hi Lav how are you then? stocked up again? plenty of food now that the guests have gone...yes Chatsworth has some ornate paintings ...and gardens ..and at chrimbo their deccies are ace

    hiya AJ ...se they have spanked you with a lockdown there .....stay positive

    ppqp...yoo hoo ..hope everything is ok .hows the weather doing? you still got the snow?

    big shout to everyone ..

    I've just been admiring some brick laying that my Chinese neighbour has done.

    To be fair it's a great wall.

    I was walking along the Riverbank, shaking my fist at a Kingfisher to scare it, when some dipstick birdwatchers asked me what I thought I was doing?.

    Idiots didn't even know that Kingfishers are a threatened species.

    I knew my 6 year £57,000 masters degree would finally pay off with a busy, hard working career helping fuel the countries economy with rapid solutions.

    Thank you Amazon.

    So I said to a mathematical teacher, do you like doing fractions? he said not half

    Manchester and the gvt have no reached an agreememt

    Now we must have a extended transition period were one side says lets get it sorted while the other whinges and demamds more negotiations that last forever
