    Re: 24th

    Good evening folks,

    Our snow event was a non-event. The flurries were flying when I went to bed last night but woke up to rain this morning, oh well. It will snow eventually
    Roasted everything in the oven for dinner, turkey tenderloins, local grown sweet potatoes, carrots & broccoli. Will have fun with the leftovers for sure. I need to get back to my workshop & get working on craft fair inventory, just in case we have craft fairs this year.

    Pauly, I really feel sorry for the elders who have no car & travel by bus to their vaccination appointments only to get turned away. I am ashamed of the poor government rollout of this vaccine.
    Biden ordered 200 million more doses today, the ones that tRump cancelled. He’s no longer in office & still pissing me off. Cold here too but I like it that way.
    Meant to tell you I skipped my night time supplements Sunday night - guess how much I slept.......I figure is was about half a dozen 20 minute cat naps, LOL I did sleep better last night &took the supps.

    Mick, that train repair looked like a delicate little surgery, quick & precise . It’s cool when the trains run & blow smoke.
    Sorry Amy is still not well. I imagine she may have one new variants, they do cause back pain. Hope tomorrow is better for her.

    Cyn, there’s 1 donut left whicj I will probably consume tonight, haha. They don’t have a ton of sugar but lots of flavor. My sourdough starter is celebrating it’s first birthday, I bought a package of starter last year from ‘Cultures for Health’ & have kept it going all this time. It lives in my fridge & I feed it once per week. I use their vegan yogurt starter too when I feel like making yogurt.
    Living among packing boxes sounds familiar to me Take your time, no big rush!!

    PQ, Glad you’re feeling better today. My mood has been on a sliding scale since Christmas so I’m just going with the flow. Like Cyn, I keep looking for the light, it helps

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie, hope all is well with all of you.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 24th

    Me again....

    Had a much better day and got lots accomplished workwise. What a difference a day makes.

    Mick...sorry Aimy is still suffering, hoping for a speedy recovery. She'll have to find some more "cat" videos to entertain her crew. I don't know if I could get my fingers into those little spaces on the locos, looks like intricate work to me. I remember running my first train, and HBO from the corner hobby shop. It went round and round LOL.

    TG...good vibes received, felt much better today, thanks. One storage unit, that's good. I think you had a number of them spread out over the country. As long as you and Zander can get to where you need to there's no rush to get it all unpacked. I still have boxes in my living room. LOL Oh no...court documents! Ugh! Good job on getting it done. I'm sure I wasted 2 years of my life doing the work my lawyer should have been doing. I did learn a lot though.

    Lav...OMG, 1 year birthday!! I can't believe you kept the starter going all that time. Living out in Duchess among a lot of Mennonites I was given a starter and had no idea what to do with it. LOL I like your dinner tonight, sounds yummy and the left overs will be great. I don't stress over my moods anymore, just go with the flow knowing it's ok to be down once in awhile. We've been so lucky with our weather this winter. Although it's bloody cold out there right now there's no major snow storms. This was the first day it was cloudy and overcast but it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow.

    Det...I'm assuming you're in the middle of your moving, hope it's going ok.

    Shout out to Sam and Pi.

    My dinner plans are tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, boring but comforting. Hope we all have a restful night....PPQP

    Re: 24th

    Hello everyone how are we today then ? hope everyone is well. It is very cold over here today, I planted some spring bulbs in pots in the greenhouse to give them a bit of a chance before putting them outside. I have 4 pink hyacinths in the house and the smell is absolutely fantastic. Amy is a little better today, however still got a really bad back. Really impressed... I sent those trains down yesterday first class post they arrived with the guy this morning and he has already repaired them. He has sent me videos of The Repair so I know they are working, and is now fitting the lights and firebox lights that I want in them. I've been working on the trains again today, scratching my head but I've got some ideas with regards to adding bits to layout and changing the scenery. In addition to that, we are looking at redoing the bathroom which means taking the tiles up up and the flooring underneath laying a flat base and putting in cushion flooring. In addition to that I'm looking at putting some mural wall tiles into the bathroom wall where it is all clinically white... the subject has yet to be discussed we have seen some really nice ones. I'm really my own worst enemy I could easily just sit down and do nothing but my head doesn't work that way mores the pity! Both rabbits doing ok I was going to rebuild the indoor hutch in the garage for them, but last night's temperature was - 4 they had hot water bottles and did ok with them so again I think I'm causing work for nothing. Right that's me I'm off to make the tea tonight it is pot creamy sun-dried tomatoes in chicken stew take care are look after yourself everyone

    Russian biochemist who created NOVICHOK invents new drug to tackle Covid-19

    Our town is having its new IKEA store delivered today.

    You’re fined 800.00 if your caught at a house party.
    This is reduced to 400.00 for early payment.
    If you catch Covid at the party, the government gives you 500.00 Track & Trace payment.
    You do the math!

    ‘China is using anal swabs to test the public for Coronavirus’

    I guess they took it literally when someone told them to shove their test up their ass!

    The Dutch police have found a way to disperse the rioting crowds in Holland.

    They have realised if they throw smoke bombs away from the rioting area, the crowds automatically follow the smoke.

    Before going away the neighbours gave me a spare key to feed their cat.

    Seems pretty stupid to me, though. I wouldn't want him to get it stuck in his throat.

    I wanted to study earthquakes when I grew up, but I was that bad with seismology I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me.

    The Blind Pilots
    Passengers on a small plane are waiting for the flight to leave.

    They're getting a little impatient, but the airport staff assures them the pilots will be there soon, and the flight can take off.

    The entrance opens, two men dressed in Pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle.
    Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.

    Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up.

    The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.

    The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory.

    As it begins to look as though the plane will plow into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.

    The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.

    In the cockpit, one blind pilot turns to the other and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die."

    With deep concern, Dick noted that his friend Conrad was far drunker than he'd ever seen him before. He walked over to the bar and asked, "What's the trouble, buddy?"

    "It's a woman." replied Conrad. "What else?"

    "Tell me about it," coaxed Dick.

    "It's your wife."

    "My wife? What about her?"

    "Well, buddy boy, I'm afraid she's cheating on us."

    Murphy told Quinn that his wife was driving him to drink.
    Quinn thinks he's very lucky because his own wife makes him walk.

    The late Bishop Sheen stated that the reason the Irish fight so often among themselves is that they're always assured of having a worthy opponent.

    An American lawyer asked, "Paddy, why is it that whenever you ask an Irishman a question, he answers with another question?
    "Who told you that?" asked Paddy.

    Paddy has expired and at his wake...

    The priest said "And no one will say his eulogy".

    The priest becomes almost apoplectic. "Will no one say this man's eulogy? Will noone at least put forth the 'few appropriate words'"?

    At last a neighbor stand up and goes to the podium, to say "His brother was worse"!

    Question - Why are Irish jokes so simple?
    Answer - So the English can understand them.

    Reilly went to trial for armed robbery. The jury foreman came out and announced, "Not guilty."
    "That's grand!" shouted Reilly. "Does that mean I can keep the money?"

    Irish lass customer: "Could I be trying on that dress in the window?"
    Shopkeeper: "I'd prefer that you use the dressing room."

    Q. What do you call an Irishman who knows how to control a wife?
    A. A bachelor.

    Finnegin: My wife has a terrible habit of staying up 'til two o'clock in the morning. I can't break her of it.
    Keenan: What on earth is she doin' at that time?
    Finnegin: Waitin' for me to come home.

    Slaney phoned the maternity ward at the hospital.

    "Quick!" He said. "Send an ambulance, my wife is goin' to have a baby!"

    "Tell me, is this her first baby?" the intern asked.

    "No, this is her husband, Kevin, speakin'."

    Re: 24th

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...oh for the days when it's just a cold. Hope that's the case and everyone gets better soon. I actually got a solid 6hrs sleep last night.

    Mick...just reading your post exhausts me! I'm glad the train repair guy lived up to your expectations, bet you'll be glad to get those locos back. Especially if you're fixing up the scenery.

    Woke up to light fluffy snow and it continued all day. Very pretty but lots of car accidents with the icy roads, glad I didn't have to go anywhere today. Boss back in the office today and first thing his sister called to say their Dad had passed this morning. At least he got a couple of weeks with him. For some reason been a bit teary eyed all day. Perhaps that just brought back memories.

    Waves to Det, Sam, Pi and Lav

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 24th

    Good evening folks,

    YB had a doctor appointment so I went along & waited out in the truck, haha. It was not far from our daughter’s house so we made a quick visit, dropped off a ton of eggs & headed back home, stopping at Costco for gas & a few necessities. Such excitement, Lol

    PQ, sorry about your boss’s dad, I do believe some people just feel it’s time to let go & they do
    We have your frigid weather on the way here so I’ll be freezing just like you. Stay safe in the snow!

    Mick, good god are on speed or something??? Haha!!! I wish I had a quarter of your energy, I could get things done!!!
    I’ve been quietly assessing things in this nearly 18 yr old house but when I mention updating something all I hear is growling. Maybe I should hire you when you’re finished with your place.
    I hope Amy continues to improve, this virus is awful. I’m now hearing recommendations to wear two masks, one disposable & one cloth for 90% efficacy. I’ll give it a try, see how it feels.
    Glad the bunnies are happy!

    Pauly, I sure hope it’s just a cold your family has now. Are any of them running fevers? That would be suspicious of Covid. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
    Took the nighttime supps last night & still didn’t sleep, haha! I give up!!!

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well!
    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Re: 24th

    Mae all - just a quick shout out... still some things to accomplish tonight.

    Pauly, I really hope it is just a cold... keep us posted.

    Mick, ditto what Lav said, wow. Enjoy the trains when you get them back.

    PPQ, yes, anyone's loss is a big mirror... maybe good, it lets any residuals escape.

    Lav, I love the idea of keeping starter and using over a period of time... maybe someday! And PS - full moon tomorrow, so we know who the culprit is for no sleep...

    Snowed here for about 18 hours, but on,ynaccumulated about 4 inches, strange. We'll see what the next few days bring...

    Hello to Det, Sam and Pi and all others...

    Embrace whatever you can with gratitude...

    Re: 24th

    Hello and how are we today then ? hope everyone is well. I had to go to the shops this morning to get some bits and pieces, does anyone else do this? When I go to the shops I always write down which shop I've been to what date and time the reason for that is if it goes pear-shaped in the future at least I know when I've been and can let others know. It's flooded the garden again last night it never stopped raining all night both rabbits are safely ensconced in the garage. I've cut their kale intake down and mixing it in will the hay see if that makes a difference to his stomach disorder.
    hiya lav how are you today then? Hope all is well with you ? No I'm not on speed in fact to be honest with you you I've slowed down a real lot over the years. String clean off you coming about wearing two masks, I already do I've got a cloth one that has a lining in it and what I did was cut Delaney and slept a medical one in between the outer and inner . whether it helps or not I do not know but psychologically I guess it does. So you dropped a ton of eggs off did you ? that made a mess I suspect... ok ok I'll get my coat! Have a great day

    And good day to you as well tree girl how are things with you? Did you get everything finished last night ? Did you end up with more snow last night ? Take care and look after yourself and obviously Zander

    Hiya ppqp
    Sorry to hear about your bosses Dad it's a fact of life will go but it is always hurtful when it does happen full stop as for you feeling down, that happens as well it happens to us all some more than others I belong in more than others bracket without a doubt the current situation climate or anything financial economical or health wise doesn't help at all as well as the mental issues surrounding the whole thing full stop you take care look after yourself you know where I am

    Hiya pauly how are you today? Hope everything is ok with you. Have you still got the cold?

    Right folks it's a goodbye from me speak to you later take care

    Re: 24th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Just cold & windy here, single digit wind chill numbers, wow!! Snow is due to arrive Monday just to make it real interesting!
    I turned the leftover turkey into a tetrazzini, all done in a single pot & dairy free of course, yum.

    Cyn, I saw that big orange moon when i was closing up the chicken house, pretty but bothersome too haha. I am also dealing with an increase in foot & lower leg neuropathy which has also been destroying my sleep, geez. I’m not real anxious to see a neurologist & get put on Gabapentin for the rest of my life so I’ve ordered a bottle of herbal extracts that have good ratings for dealing with the burning & stinging, ouch. I’ll give anything a try. Wonder where your snow came from, it’s been dry here. As far as the starter goes you need to be home to keep it fed. I haven’t been anywhere so mine has been looked after. I am assuming my travel days are over anyway. Stay warm!!!

    Mick, it’s sad you’ve had so much rain, your yard needs time to dry out, goodness. Glad to hear the bunnies are OK.
    I always take extra eggs to my daughter so she can share them with her neighbor. She’s a real nice woman, a nursing instructor in Philly but she’s been stuck at home for about 2 years now due to a brain tumor. She had surgery & chemo but somewhere along the long she suffered a stroke. She told me she loves the fresh eggs & they are good for her brain. She’s doing the best she can but she’ll never be able to get back to work, sad. I hope Amy is improving now!

    Hello to PQ, hope you’re OK.

    Hello Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    hiya everyone else hope all is well..

    No matter what I type in google, I always end up with pictures of a big metal cube with a door and a numbered dial on it.

    I think I must have ‘safe search’ on.

    On the tub of ice cream I bought it said: "50% less fat".

    What a con! I just ate the whole tub and I'm actually heavier.

    I once had a Bounty on my head.

    Hot day.

    Big mistake.

    My wife just got mad at me for squashing a beetle that had managed to come through the door in our house.

    I said to her "I never like Ringo anyways....

    I know this guy Dave at work who's a big libtard type and he was bragging today about "how he's been a pure vegan for 25 years !"

    "You're wrong about that," I replied, "Several times when we went to lunch and you got up to go to the loo, I'd stick some bacon in your wrap."

    My wife said she wanted a photo of her golden retriever in the river.

    I don't know what use it would be when it's drenched.

    The government have found out why scousers have refused to get a jab.They must have misheard and thought they were advised to get a job !

    If you don't laugh out loud at this one, I give up....

    Always wear clean underwear in public, especially when working under your vehicle...

    From the Hamilton Spectator Daily News comes this story of a Burlington couple who drove their car to Wal-Mart, only to have their car break down in the parking lot.

    The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car in the lot.

    The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection, she saw a pair of male legs protruding from under the chassis. Although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned private parts into glaringly public ones. Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts, and tucked everything back into place. She then took a deep breath and stood up boldly to face the crowd. When she looked across the hood, she found herself staring at her husband, who had been standing idly by.

    The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his forehead.

    A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor.

    The doctor says "Okay, Mrs. Jones, what's the problem"?

    The mother says, "It's my daughter, Debbie. She keeps getting these cravings. She's putting on weight, and is sick most mornings".

    The doctor gives Debbie a good examination, then turns to the mother and says, "Well, I don't know how to tell you this, but your daughter is pregnant, about 4 months, would be my guess".

    The mother says, "Pregnant?! She can't be. She has never ever been with a man! Have you Debbie"?

    Debbie replied saying, "No mother! I've never even kissed a man, I'm still a virgin"!

    The doctor walked over to the window and just stood, staring out of it.

    After about five minutes pass and finally the mother says, "Is there something wrong out there doctor"?

    The doctor replies, "No, not really, it's just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and 3 wise men came over the hill. There's just no way I'm going to miss it this time"!

    A young Native American woman went to a doctor for her first ever physical exam. after checking all of her vitals and running the usual tests, the doctor said, "Well, Running Doe, you are in fine health. I could find no problems. I did notice one abnormality, however".

    "Oh, what is that, Doctor"?

    "Well, you have no nipples".

    "None of the people in my tribe have nipples", she replied.

    "That is amazing", said the doctor. "I'd like to write this up for The American Journal of Medicine if you don't mind"?

    She said, "OK. no problem".

    "First of all" asked the doctor, "how many people are in your tribe"?

    She answered, "Approximately 500".

    "And what is the name of your tribe", asked the doctor?

    Running Doe replied, "We're called........

    "The Indian Nippleless Five Hundred"!!!

    Ponderism : 101
    It's true that alcohol kills people; but how many are born because of it?

    A man was driving down a motorway in England with his blonde girlfriend and she piped up,"I think those people in the car next to us are from Wales".
    "Why do you think that" he said?
    "Well, the kids are writing on the window and it says:
    "stit ruoy su wohS".

    Ponderism 888:
    "I promise", "I am sorry" and "I love you" all have eight letters...
    but then again, so does "bullshit".

    Adam Got Caught Speeding Yesterday...
    the policeman asked him to step out of the car and walk in a straight line. Half way down he stopped Adam and said, "I'm sorry sir, but you'll have to come back to the station with me as you're staggering".
    Adam replied, "Oohh, you little tiger, you're not so bad looking yourself".

    Someone knocked at my door this afternoon.
    When I opened it, I saw a guy from Domino's holding a cheese and tomato pizza.
    "I haven't ordered any pizzas," I said. "This must be a mistake."
    "I know," he replied. "Your neighbour forgot his Facebook password and wanted to show you what he was eating for lunch."

    The good news about mid-life is that the glass is still half full.
    Of course the bad news is that it won't be long before your teeth are floating in it.
