    Feb 7th

    Kicking off this week's thread since we are frozen in place here. Still sitting at -22F but there's no snow and it's sunny outside. Not going out for my Vitamin D though.

    Mick...your weather is all over the place, like it can't make up it's mind. Nice comeback for the Peskies. Did you take them off Kale all together? Jeeves is a smart one isn't he! Lights in 11 coaches done, 2200 more to go. LOL

    Lav...I watch the weather forecast for a heads up but don't believe anything till I actually step out the door. Apparently they're right today so not stepping out the door. LOL So the -22F is without wind chill this morning. Hope your DIL makes it home today so you don't have to go out and restock.

    TG...hope you had a restful sleep and that your day is relaxing.

    Shout out to Pauly, Det, Sam and Pi.

    Off to make some breakfast so put your orders in....PPQP

    Drinking makes such fools of people, and people are such fools to begin with, that it's compounding a felony. - Robert Benchley

    A junior manager, a senior manager and their boss are on their way to a meeting. On their way through a park, they come across a wonder lamp. They rub the lamp and a ghost appears. The ghost says, "Normally, one is granted three wishes but as you are three, I will allow one wish each"

    So the eager senior manager shouted, I want the first wish. I want to be in the Bahamas, on a fast boat and have no worries. "Pfufffff, and he was gone.

    Now the junior manager could not keep quiet and shouted "I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls, plenty of food and cocktails. "Pfufffff, and he was also gone ......

    The boss calmly said," I want these two idiots back in the office after lunch at 12.35pm"

    Lesson I: "Always allow the bosses to speak first"

    The CEO was standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

    "Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?"

    "Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

    "Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the shredder machine. "I just need one copy."

    Lesson II - Never, never assume that your BOSS knows everything.

    An American and a Japanese were sitting on the plane on the way to LA when the American turned to the Japanese and asked, "What kind of -ese are you?"

    The Japanese confused, replied, "Sorry but I don't understand what you mean."

    The American repeated, "What kind of -ese are you?"

    Again, the Japanese was onfused over the question. The American, now irritated, then yelled, "What kind of -ese are you ... Are you a Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese!, etc......???"

    The Japanese then replied, "Oh, I am a Japanese."

    A while later the Japanese turned to the American and asked What kind of 'key' was he. The American, frustrated, yelled, "What do you mean what kind of '-kee' am I?!"

    The Japanese said, "Are you a Yankee, donkee, or monkee?"

    Lesson III - Never insult anyone

    There were these 4 guys, a Russian, a German, an American and a French, who found this small genie bottle. When they rubbed the bottle, a genie appeared. Thankful that the 4 guys had released him out of the bottle, He said, "Next to you all are 4 swimming pools, I will give each of you a wish. When you run towards the pool and jump, you shout what you want the pool of water to become, then your wish will come true."

    The French wanted to start. He ran towards the pool, jumped and shouted"WINE". The pool immediately changed into a pool of wine. The Frenchman was so happy swimming and drinking from the pool.

    Next is the Russian's turn, he did the same and shouted, "VODKA" and immersed himself into a pool of vodka.

    The German was next and he jumped and shouted, "BEER". He was so contented with his beer pool.

    The last is the American. He was running towards the pool when suddenly he steps on a banana peel. He slipped towards the pool and shouted, SHIT!!!!!!!........."

    Lesson IV - Think twice before you say something, because sometimes accidents do happen.

    WIFE: "If I died first, would you remarry?"

    HUSBAND: "Definitely not!"

    WIFE: "Why not - don't you like being married?"

    HUSBAND: "Of course I do."

    WIFE: "Then why wouldn't you remarry?"

    HUSBAND: "Okay, I'd get married again."

    WIFE: "You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)."

    HUSBAND: (makes audible groan).

    WIFE: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?"

    HUSBAND: "Where else would we sleep?"

    WIFE: "Would you replace my pictures with hers?"

    HUSBAND: "That would seem like the proper thing to do."

    WIFE: "Would she use my golf clubs?"

    HUSBAND: "No, she's left-handed."

    WIFE: - - - silence - - -

    HUSBAND: "Shit."

    Greetings all,

    More snow today & when it ended it started melting, strange. Arctic. Air moves in overnight so there’s going to be a lot of freezing, ho hum.
    I made the trek out to the chickens a few times but otherwise stayed inside. YB drove the grandson home just before lunch so that saved a little food for us, haha!!
    Working on some projects staying warm with my decaf tea & coffee

    Cyn, look for Kathy’s Embroidered Gifts on FB. Like I said I really need to do some updates. I think I need an assistant, Lol
    Keep yourself safe & warm too.

    PQ, I can’t even imagine that kind of cold, Brrrrrr!!! I don’t think you could force me to step outside, haha!! Keep yourself unfrozen, please!!

    Mick, that’s quite a list of drinking quotes. Makes me wonder why the world is so obsessed with beer, haha!
    Glad your fur kids are doing OK. I know they keep you stepping

    Hello to Det, Sam, Pauly & Pie, hope you are all OK.

    Have a safe & warm night all!

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? I don't know whether you can see that picture properly or not but at the moment it is sunny -2 degrees and snowing! Didn't sleep too well last night , was up early feeling sick with a headache dizzy and couldn't see properly and that was without alcohol haha I think when that lid dropped on my head it gave me a bit of concussion or so Julie thinks I went to the post office this morning and felt really really poorly so I'm sitting here now with instructions not to move and because she is working from home I can't really get away with it. To be fair enough I've slept for about 3 hours today already. Rabbits are both playing in the garage, Jeeves seems a lot more lively now colour he is no longer getting kale at all their diet now consists of Timothy hay Meadow Hay rough cut hay from the farm Romaine lettuce and savoy cabbage it's very strange I used to nip out out at night and give them a treat I still not out and give them a tiny piece of lettuce late at night and they still perform up and down jump about like lunatics as if they were getting a treat full stop was going to do some work on my trains today but not allowed. Hope you are all well take care and stay safe

    Re: Feb 7th

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...yup, the picture is perfect, I can even see the snow. Jealous of your -2 we're at -13F and dropping to -22F tonight. Don't get me started on the wind chill! I think you got a concussion as well, especially with those symptoms. I hope you stayed put, glad Julie is keeping an eye on you. I hope the change in the Peskies diet does the trick. You don't need any more trips to the vet. You take care of yourself.

    Pauly...I haven't heard any weather forecasts for Vegas lately, I'm assuming it's still too cold for you. Let me know what you decide with the memorial sweatshirt. I like the idea of just the names. Hope your headache went away.

    Lav...at least with these frigid temps we're not getting any snow. It's supposed to warm up a bit by the weekend and of course it'll snow. Good plan on staying indoors.

    TG...congrats on finishing your Sunday job, you deserve that day off. Hope you got a good rest last night.

    Shout out to Det, Pi and Sam.

    Had a virtual 2 hr meeting with the boss and prog coord today. I'm telling you, some people are just useless. He dumped a bunch of website work (which I'm going to have to figure out how to do) on my plate so I'll be busy for the next few days. I suspect he wants to be able to show the board something to prove that we are actually working during the mandatory stay at home orders. I know I am!

    Hope we all have a warm and restful evening....PPQP

    Mae all -
    Mick, I was worried about a concussion when you described the accident... please dial it back... and no detail work with your eyes for awhile ok? Those were my instructions when I had a concussion... and I didn't pay attention, and it took me a long time to heal... just sayin. Glad the peskies are being good...

    Thanks for the place to look for your things, Lav. But don't tempt me too much!

    Pauly, hope the headache went away, thatt's so rough, having a bad head day... Maybe it was the lack of caffeine?

    PPQ, so the boss is inventing things for you to do so that he can show progress? That's a new twist! Oh well, hope it keeps you out of trouble and warm!

    Det, Sam and all dropping in, wishing you well...

    Longer daylight is welcome -

    Mae everybody, Mick sorry about the head, I didn't realize it hit you that hard! Take it easy today, yup that's the same thing my guinea pigs eat, they go hog wild for romaine! I've tried other greens but that's their favorite and if I give them something else they get mad haha, PQ, it's been in the 60's this week so not so bad, Cyn, probably lack of caffeine or I did take a different iron pill on Sunday, could be that, seems I can't win with these iron supplements weeks, where's Lav? So used to her posts when I get up in the morning, much love to all and wishes for a great BF day for us all
