    Re: 10 Jan ..

    Mae all... I listened to a meditation about the New Moon last night, and apparently today we move into Aquarius... until today, the stars were lined up just like it was 2020... and didn't it just feel that way? So, maybe we will get some relief in the coming weeks...

    Lav, you never have to apologize! The Salons are there for you! Not the other way around... But this Sunday will be fun - 2 violinists, a fabulous French horn player, and jazz great Chris Brubeck... a few short performances plus some good video clips...

    PPQ - how are your symptoms today... I am a little worried about what you described... a lot of Covid cases start with eye inflammation, and feel like colds. If it continues, please get a test... we need you well! Do you have an oximeter? Are you checking your oxygen? Thinking about you...

    Mick, ditto Lav, good job on helping out poor bunny... glad that it worked. I tried out my circular walk today... I like it, I did 3 circles around the yard, each getting smaller, then I did 7 circles around the huge old tree... I done know why, it just felt right. I have a hard time "grounding" so I think this will be a useful way to wxwercise a little. Interesting about the prison...

    Pauly, hang in there hon, this is a long haul. And yes, it seems to be getting worse - probably all the Xmas parties... so sad. Ireland sounds as if they are in absolutely dire straights... hope we don't go there...

    Det, good luck!!! Sam, hoping all is well. Hello to Pi.

    I was also very blue and out of sorts yesterday... hopefully this new moon, and the stars in Aquarius, will give us a break.

    To.The.Light. ❤️

    Re: 10 Jan ..

    Treegirl......hve youever heard of the rhyme "here we go round the mulberry bush" The rhyme was first recorded by James Orchard Halliwell as an English children's game in the mid-nineteenth century.[1] He noted that there was a similar game with the lyrics "Here we go round the bramble bush". The bramble bush may be an earlier version, possibly changed because of the difficulty of the alliteration, since mulberries do not grow on bushes.[2]

    Halliwell said subsequent verses included: "This is the way we wash our clothes", "This is the way we dry our clothes", "This is the way we mend our shoes", "This is the way the gentlemen walk" and "This is the way the ladies walk".[1]

    The song and associated game is traditional, and has parallels in Scandinavia and in the Netherlands (the bush is a juniper in Scandinavia).[3]

    Local historian R. S. Duncan suggests that the song originated with female prisoners at HMP Wakefield. A sprig was taken from Hatfeild Hall (Normanton Golf Club) in Stanley, Wakefield, and grew into a fully mature mulberry tree around which prisoners exercised in the moonlight.[4] The mulberry tree died during 2017 and was cut down and removed on 7 May 2019.

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well with everyone. Just got back from the dentist all sparkling sparkling and shining again . it was kind of crazy you going to the dentists surgery the take your temperature and you are given a little bag with a mask and a pair of gloves to put on. After this you sit and wait to get called through there I am all masked up and the receptionist comes up and asks if I want a cup of coffee nice idea but haven't worked at how I'm going to drink it with a mask on yet . it is now snowing over here too.

    Hello tree girl how are you today then? So we move into Aquarius today ? In this cold weather I'm moving nowhere. Rabbit is doing well today day.com I just need to be really careful on what he eats. Take care and look after yourself

    Hiya lav and how are you? Hope all is well. Thanks for the snow by the way. Over here we had numerous politicians on today, and none of them can decide what the rules are for where you go exercising . Yes you've seems back to normal again until the next time haha you take care and look after yourself

    Hiya ppqp and pauly. .hope you are ok too.take care x

    I was checking my son's essay about the countryside, he kept writing the word 'hll'.

    I told him to never forget the hills have 'i's.

    Go on, give Trump another month or so.


    He's on a hat trick.

    I've just bought a Liverpool shirt, and it's the best thing, so far, for social distancing.

    Cosmetic surgery clinics, nail salons, hair salons, waxing centres and tanning places are all closed again due to yet another lockdown. Watch out guys, it’s about to get ugly out there.

    The Vicar smiles, leans forward, sucking air through his teeth and mutters " Too f@cking late pal, the paperworks already done!"

    An ambitious new sales rep for Heineken beer traveled all the way to Rome and managed to get an audience with the Pope himself.

    As soon as the two were alone together, the rep leaned over and whispered, "Your Holiness, I have an offer I think might interest you. I'm in a position to give you one million dollars if you'll change the wording in the Lord's Prayer from 'Our Daily Bread' to 'Our Daily Beer.' What do you think?"

    "Absolutely not," said the shocked Pope.

    "Hey I understand, it's a big decision," sympathized the salesman. "How about five million dollars?"

    "I couldn't think of it," sputtered the Pope.

    "I know it's a tough one. Tell you what, I have been authorized to go up as high as fifty million dollars, " proposed the salesman, "but that's our final offer. You have 21 days to think it over."

    Asking the salesman to leave the room, the Pope called in one of his top Cardinals and whispered, "When does our contract with the bread company expire?"

    The Secret Service issued new rules of conduct for agents Friday:

    1. You can no longer get drunk
    2. Procure hookers
    3. Frequent GoGos or strip bars.

    Addendum: The rules also say that from now on, if agents feel compelled to engage in such behavior, they can run for public office like everyone else.

    After eleven attempts a wife finally passed her driving test.

    Her husband asks, "Now that you have a licence, what can I get you as a reward?"

The parents were so embarrassed that they pretended nothing was happening and kept he conversation going. The guests cooperated and also continued as if nothing extraordinary was happening.

    After going all the way around the room, the children left, and there was a moment of silence at the table, during which one child was heard to say, “You see, it is vanishing cream!”


    The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp, stated: "Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news.

    First, the good news Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run.”

    With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Peters was overweight and terribly slow...

    ...but then the drill sergeant finished his statement:

    "Now for the bad news. Private Peters will be driving a truck".

    Bubba and Johnny Ray, two good ole boys from North Carolina, were sitting' on the front porch drinking beer when a large truck hauling rolls and rolls of sod went by.

    "Do what" asked Johnny Ray?

    "Send my grass out to be mowed", answered Bubba.

    Cyn, thanks for the explanation, today truly felt different, better
    I pushed myself to get back to work & have been working on embroidery orders, you can look for a message soon. Glad your circle meditation is a go for you!!!!
    I will try to get b ack to the music this weekend, thanks.

    Mick, now that your teeth are all shiny & new I think we should insure them against accidental damage, haha! Glad you got everything done!
    I’m waiting to see how many politicians get fined for refusal to walk thru the metal detector at the Capitol. Looks like a good way to get some quick cash LOL
    We are definitely enjoying mild weather this week, it was 50 something today & dry. Next week it will probably all go to hell.

    PQ, hope you are doing OK.

    Pauly, hope your day was good too!

    Have a nice evening everyone!

    Two Scots were each having a Kentucky Special when the first guy, a Glaswegian, started to gag!

    "I---I think I've swallowed a bone" he coughed and gasped.

    His pal said "Hey Jimmy, are you choking"?

    "No, you tosser, I'm fkn' serious"!

    The lecture was about the development of the American auto industry.

    The teacher emphasized the role played by Henry Ford, whose assembly lines decreased production costs.

    At the end of the lecture, she gave a test including the question: “What did Henry Ford invent that made buying a car more affordable?”

    Little Johnny wrote: “0% financing.”

    Paddy goes into a florist and says, I would like to buy a bunch of flowers for my girlfriend.

    The florist looked at him and said, "Certainly Sir, what is it you're after"?

    Paddy replies...

    "sex"

    A college pizza delivery guy arrived at Harry's house. He knocked on the door and Harry answered.

    After taking the pizza, Harry asked: "What is the usual tip"?

    "Well", replied the delivery guy, "this is my first trip here, but the other guys say if I get a quarter out of you, I'll be doing great".

    "Is that so" snorted Harry? "Well, just to show them how wrong they are, here's five dollars".

    "Thanks", replied the delivery guy, "I'll put this towards my college fund".

    "What are you studying in college" asked Harry?

    The delivery guy smiled and said: "Psychology".

    I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms.

    Then I saw a cottonmouth snake with a frog in his mouth.

    Frogs are good bass bait.

    Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.

    Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit.

    So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth.

    His eyes rolled back, he went limp. I released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.

    A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot.

    It was that snake, with two more frogs...

    First Guy: "Now my old grand daddy, he knew the exact day of the year that he was going to die. It was the right year too. Not only that, but he knew what time he would die that day, and he was right about that too".

    Second Guy: "Wow, that's absolutely amazing. Was he psychic? Just how did he know all that"?

    First Guy: "The Judge told him".

    A newly married sailor was informed by the navy that he was going to be stationed a long way from home on a remote island in the Pacific for a year. A few weeks after he got there he began to miss his new wife, so he wrote her a letter.

    "My love," he wrote "we are going to be apart for a very long time. Already I'm starting to miss you and there's really not much to do here in the evenings. Besides that we're constantly surrounded by young attractive native girls. Do you think if I had a hobby of some kind I would not tempted"?

    So his wife sent him back a harmonica saying, "why don't you learn to play this"?

    Eventually his tour of duty came to an end and he rushed back to his wife. "Darling" he said, "I can't wait to get you into bed so that we make passionate love"!!!

    She kissed him and said, "First let's see you play that harmonica".

    More Medical Reports
    Allegedly sentences actually typed by Glaswegian medical secretaries

    Patient has left her white blood cells at another hospital.

    The patient was in his usual state of good health until his airplane ran out of fuel and crashed.

    Between you and me, we ought to be able to get this lady pregnant.

    She slipped on the ice and apparently her legs went in separate directions in early December.

    Patient was seen in consultation by Dr. ‘Smith’, who felt we should sit on the abdomen and I agree.

    The patient was to have a bowel resection. However, he took a job as a stock broker instead.

    By the time he was admitted, his rapid heart had stopped, and he was feeling better.

    The wife asked me what I was doing on the computer last night.

    I told her I was looking for cheap flights.

    "I love you" she said and then she got all excited!!!

    She quickly undressed and we had the most amazing sex ever....

    Which is rather strange because this is the first time she's shown an interest in my darts.

    The Pope and Obama at the Baseball Game

    After their meeting at the United Nations they attended a baseball game. Neither intended missing an opportunity to speak to the enormous crowd so each decided to say a few words before the start of the game.

    The Pope and Trump were not exactly getting along well and while on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front of the enormous crowd, the Pope leans towards Mr Orange and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice"!

    Trump replied, "I seriously doubt that! With just one little wave of your hand....Show me"!

    So the Pope backhanded Trump and knocked him completely off the stage!

    The crowd roared and cheered wildly and there was much rejoicing and happiness throughout the land!

    MAE ALL...

    Frustrating day yesterday. I had lost my wired internet connection a while ago, I think my ethernet net card has bit the dust. Not surprising my laptop is 15 years old. Then my wireless connection kept dropping. So ended up going into the office to get some work done. Turned out ok as nobody else was there. Wireless connection working this morning so far so thought I'd get my post on.

    I'm feeling much better, no stuffed up nose and breathing is better. I got a feeling the air quality in my house isn't the greatest. Son brought a small deep freezer home so organizing a space for it. Other son is back on his cleaning role so more shuffling of furniture so he can finish deep cleaning the carpets.

    Mick...I was glad to hear Jeeves started eating again, just as well the vet checks him out anyways.

    TG...hope your mood improves today, we've all been there.

    Lav...I really had to push myself to get back into work mode. It really does make a difference going into the office, I get to tune out home life for awhile. Our government lifted some of the restrictions starting Monday. People are sure getting fed up with the on again, off again rules.

    Pauly...I can't believe Romeo is turning 3 either. Not sure what your situation is like but will you be able to see him?

    Off to get another cup of coffee, hope my internet is still up when I get back. LOL Have a good day all.....PPQP

    Re: 10 Jan ..

    Good evening Abbers,

    Cloudy here & waiting for rain - the first in almost 2 weeks!! I was enjoying life without the mud, haha!!
    I made a pot of lentil veggie soup this afternoon, pretty good. I think I will be meeting up with a customer this weekend to get her pillows to her. She doesn’t live too far & it’s nice to get out of the house once in a while.

    Cyn, hang in there because things always get better, in time. It would be pretty easy for any of us to lose our sh*t right now with so much going on. I keep reciting the serenity prayer to myself & doing a lotof deep breathing. You take care

    Mick, hope Jeeves is OK & you as well.
    Our politicians certainly could use mental detectors LOL
    Those medical reports would make a pretty funny radio show or movie haha!

    Pauly, Happy Birthday to Romeo!! Time certainly does fly by

    PQ, I suppose the ideal thing would be a few days at home followed by a few days in the office just to keep boredom away. I get slightly hysterical when I don’t have internet access, everything I do relies on a good solid connection, geez! Do you have a humidifier at home? It really helps me during the winter.

    Hello to the busy Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    I observed my son starting a Zoom chat with one of his friends and greeting him like, "Yo, sup dawg?"

    This is what happens when you let your child work behind the counter at KFC.

    The government says it will run out of the first vaccine by march!
    Pfizer chiefs say they "predict a riot".

    Breaking news on Sky as a batch of ice cream tests positive for coronavirus.

    What a scoop that is.

    I lay on my death bed the other day, with my wife Tina, and my sister Marge by my side.

    When I saw them getting upset I comforted them - "Don't cry for me, Marge and Tina..."

    At his wit’s end, Trump has re-hired Steve Bannon (the mastermind behind his 2016 election landslide victory) in a last gasp attempt to prevent Biden’s inauguration.
    The pair of them will appear before Judge Judy on Monday morning to argue their case

    I've just checked the calendar to see upon which day my Birthday falls this year.

    It's the 5th of July.

    This is the 1st year I won't be running in the London marathon because of covid......I usually don't do it because I am a fat lazy git that can't run.
