    Re: 3rd of Jan 2021

    Hello friends,

    Such a happy & sad day in the US!
    The good citizens of Georgia elected two Democratic senators effectively pushing Moscow Mitch out of his leadership role in the senate.
    Then, this afternoon insurrectionists stormed the Capitol building while Congress was in session certifying election results. This has never happened before, not even during the Civil War!!!!
    WTF is going on, has everyone lost their damn minds?
    I felt better when we talked to our son to find out he was at home on his ‘weekend’ off. They don’t supply the Fire/EMS with riot gear you know. My stomach was in knots for a while. His old firehouse was the closest to the Capitol building too.

    Mick, good chatting with you, thanks!

    Hello to the rest of the group. I need to go calm myself down, I can feel my B/P rising. Take care all

    MAE ALL...

    After a virtual meeting with the boss/prog coord yesterday I got wrapped up in trying to solve some program changes and when I'm on a role time just gets away from me. And then got wrapped up watching the shit show that happened at the White House today. OMG!
    Another early morning meeting tomorrow so will read back on how everyone's doing after that.
    Have a good night all....PPQP

    hiya all how are we then ..firstly for all you folk over there ....stay safe .both from the crap that is going on and the covid .Yesterday over there just tarnished American beliefs ...how can such an egotistical megalomaniac could o that to the once greatest nation in the world ..Fortunately I know a lot of Americans ,and know what they are like ...but for a lot of folk Trump and his cohort represent America..werent too many masks on show when that happened
    Im busy making tea ..Ive been doing the kitchen ...almost finished ...will be done Saturday I hope

    stay safe all..


    "Hello? Is this the police? It's Nancy Pelosi speaking. Yes. Listen, we just had a quick meeting under a sofa and we decided not to get rid of the police after all. So would you mind... preferably rather quickly...".

    Donald Trump is BANNED from Twitter for up to a day over a message about 'great patriots'.

    500 Twitter employees get the day off.

    I signed up to a website to learn how to write English confidently.

    I must admit, they weren't the easiest two words.

    First trip booked for Jan 2021, going to Iceland.

    Fingers crossed if that goes well looking at Tesco in Feb and Asda in March.

    Capitol Hill riots ... Glasgow City Police flown over to show them how to really deal with stuff.

    Re: 3rd of Jan 2021

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly....yup, I couldn't quit watching either. Deep down I knew the vote would be passed but never dreamed that shit show would erupt. I'm glad all his social media accounts have been shut down. Enough is enough.

    Mick...bet you'll be glad when the kitchen is finally finished. Or maybe not, then you'll have to find something else to do. It's a gorgeous day here so went for a walk after yet another meeting with the boss this morning. We're all waiting for a 4pm announcement to see if the current restrictions get lifted, very doubtful. Regardless the boss is still open to everyone who can to continue to work from home. Works for me.

    I don't remember if I thanked everyone for the birthday wishes so just in case, thank you. I think I've got all the government forms filled out submitted now that I'm officially a senior. At least I'll be able to get some price breaks if we ever open up again. LOL Meeting over I'm into clean up and declutter mode. For some reason I have lots of energy today, been a long time since that's been the case. Shout out to the gang and will check back in to see how everyone is doing.....PPQP

    Re: 3rd of Jan 2021

    Mae all,

    Sorry to be gone... just more long days and short nights.

    happy belated birthday, PPQ, sorry I am late in welcoming you to Seniorhood... I'll be there in June...

    Wow, Lav, no wonder your BP was rising, I had no idea he might have been called for last night's debacle, that would have been tough for me too...

    Mick - brick forks? And yes, I would have thought the Glasgow police were the ones that could control that crowd of yahoos.

    Pauly, hope all is chugging along for you - pls take extra care...

    Det, congrats on keeping on... great to hear, sending energy.

    Sam, I thought of you today when I did a super-fast run into the grocery store. Lasted just long enough to hear the whole "Thank God I'm a country boy" - about pickin' and playin' - loved it.

    So far so okay with brother and SIL... hopefully the monoclonal antibodies will keep them safe from the dreaded Day 10 (tomorrow). Not happy that my brother's o2 won't get higher than 95... and he is prone to respiratory infections... still saying lots of prayers. Thanks all for your concern.

    I haven't turned on the tv since Xmas day, and I didn't turn it on last night... I just can't bear the talking heads dragging me through every detail a million times. I read newspaper stories as they came onto my laptop, that was bad enough. But the video (from inside) of them crashing through the Capitol building door, and the still of the standoff at the Chamber door was absolutely sickening. Unbelievable. Damn him. But Go Pelosi, back at her (defiled) post, calmly wiping the gavel with an antibacterial wipe... that was leadership. And Romney, apparently shouting at the T-supporting republicans... excellent. Some bright spots in a dark day.

    Stay well all, please please. Will be back when I can... big doings again this weekend... uuugh.
    Lav, we finally had sun today - hope you did too...
    To the Light.

    Re: 3rd of Jan 2021

    Good evening friends,

    Would you believe me if I told you I woke up with something akin to chest pain this morning?? After a warm shower it eased off, I think I slept in an awkward position. I also went to bed with a giant dose of anxiety after yesterday’s shit show. If Trump isn’t removed after this mess I don’t know what will become of us.
    And just to continue my angst I found one of my young chickens murdered in their fenced yard about an hour ago. WTH??? YB is reviewing the trail cam now to see if we can figure out what happened.

    Hello to PQ, Pauly, Cyn & Mick. I know we are all having issues right now but we are all OK. This I know for sure
    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a good night all & I hope to be back tomorrow in a better mood.

    hiya ppqp ...were the restrictions lifted for you?...so what are these allowances you get as a new 21 year old? take care ..

    hiya pauly you ok?and you too det?

    President Donald Trump after being suspended from Twitter and Facebook now has a MySpace account which ironically is what Joe Biden is asking him to vacate.


    A Man Went to Visit
    his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of the state. After spending the night, his grandfather prepared breakfast for him consisting of eggs and bacon. He noticed a film-like substance on his plate and he questioned his grandfather. "Are these plates clean"?

    His grandfather replied...."those plates are as clean as cold water can get them so go on and finish your meal".

    That afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed tiny specks around the edge of his plate, and a substance that looked like dried egg yokes. So he asked again, "Are you sure these plates are clean"?

    Without looking up from his hamburger, the grandfather says, "I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them, now don't ask me about it anymore"!

    Later that afternoon, as he was on his way out to get the paper, the dog started to growl and would not let him pass. "Grandfather, your dog won't let me out", he complained.

    Without diverting his attention from the football game, his Grandfather shouted, "Coldwater, move"!

    A man and woman were having dinner in a fine restaurant. Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed that the man was slowly sliding down his chair and under the table, but the woman acted unconcerned.

    The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still, the woman appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware that her dining companion had disappeared.


    The waitress went over to the table and said to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table".


    The woman calmly looked up at her and said, "No he didn't. He just walked in the door".

    ...is walking down the street and comes across a man and his dog. The little dog is singing. He has a lovely voice and the talent scout says, "Come to my office. I want to sign you and this marvelous dog to a contract. This dog can make us both rich".

    The man brings his little dog to the talent scout's office. The little dog is just about to finish singing "La Donna E' Mobile," when a large dog runs into the room and grabs him by the scruff of the neck. She (it's a bitch) runs away with him in her mouth.

    The talent scout yells, "Stop her. She's taking away our fortune"!

    The man replies, sadly, "It's no use. That's his mother. She doesn't want him to be on stage. She wants him to be a doctor".

    Re: 3rd of Jan 2021

    MAE ALL...

    TG...I hope day 10 passed uneventful for your brother and SIL. I've been praying right along with you. Will this weekend see the end to your commitment? I hope you take time to breath.

    Lav...how are you feeling today? I'm so glad your son wasn't involved in any of that debacle. So sorry to hear about your young chic. Did YB have any luck figuring out what happened? Man, it's been one thing after another for you lately. Hope you had a calmer day today.

    Pauly...thanks, I think I can stop counting birthdays now. LOL Hope you had a good day.

    Mick...just what you needed to see when you got home, geeze. Glad it was an easy fix, that floor will never have looked so clean. Nope, restrictions extended for another 2 weeks except the kids are to return to school on Monday. That means the childcare staff will be back in but I'll be far, far away.

    Waiting for boss to approve fees for next year's school term, schools are taking kindergarten registrations as of next Thursday and the parents have been asking. So that just added to the pile on my plate with a definite deadline.

    Shout out to Pi, Sam and Det. Have a good night all....PPQP
