    Re: 26 September

    Good evening friends,

    We only had a quick shower this morning & it’s been sunny & nice since. Cold front moving in tonight - so they say. I took the extra fans out of the chicken house so they don’t freeze overnight haha.
    I turned the leftover turkey into a casserole so there’s several meals to keep us fed this week. I told Mick that YB put his just paid off tractor up for sale on Marketplace yesterday & it sold within a few hours. A young guy came all the way down from norther NJ with his truck & 21 ft trailer, loaded it up & hauled it away a few hours ago. He said the tractor will have a lot of work to do on his farm

    PQ, that was thoughtful of you to take care of your old client that way. I hope they appreciate you! I’m not sure if this cold front is coming from your part of the world butit’s supposed to go down in the 40’s at night this week. Better for sleeping i say LOL

    Mick, the news media does no one any favors these days. They did the same thing here when there was a computer hack at the processing plants a few month ago. They drove everyone into a frenzy, completely unnecessary. How frustrating! Stay dry over there, I’ll send some sun.

    Cyn, new tires, great idea to make your trip safer & more comfortable. I think we’re all guilty of collecting too much stuff, haha! You notice it more because you’re moving around a lot.
    I haven’t decided on the next pot of soup yet but I will especially if it’s feeling cooler. I have an appointment for an echocardiogram tomorrow afternoon. Looking for possible structural changes that may be affecting my B/P. Gosh, it could be anything i guess but I’m trying to stay positive.

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam & PIe. Hope everyone is doing well.
    Have a nice night all.

    MAE ALL...

    Very frustrating day at work. Prog Coord showed up at 10:30 and the boss rolled in around 11:30. I guess they don't have to tell anyone where they are or when they'll be in. Other than a 2+ hour meeting with the prog coord he's said nothing to anyone else. The accountant did say he told her he had a meeting with the board over the weekend to toss around some ideas. One being he would continue to approve payroll. WTF! If he's gone than be done with him. The account prepared his ROE so if he does continue to do payroll it would be on a contract bases. A lot of deep breathing today.

    Mick...the weather has been really nice. Still sitting around 64F and supposed to continue well into next week. Saw some pictures of the lineups at the gas stations on the news tonight. Yup, I agree with you on the media and stupid politician remarks.

    TG...I used to carry around an air compressor because on of my tires had a slow leak. Last fall bought new tires and it was the best thing I did. No more worries and winter was a breeze. I'm glad you're returning the tire stuff, you're much better off.

    Lav...glad you're looking after Stella and no I'm not sending down the cold front. LOL The client had her class in the hall today and yes she is very appreciative. She announced that I was the one who has been working hard to get them back in. I'm telling you at this point I don't care what happens I just want it to over. Good luck at the echocardiogram tomorrow.

    Brought home a couple of books from the Little Free Library so I'm looking forward to tucking myself in early tonight.

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    hiuya all ...how are we then today ? all good I hope .really windy here today ,and raining ..this morning I stripped the cooker down ..it wasnt working and in my mind needed a clean too ...now cleaned and fixed .Then up in the loft ,cleaning the railway tracks ,and trying out the locos ..seems ages since I did that .Id actually forgotten some of the codings for the locos!!

    hiya teegee ,best of luck with your travels ,glad you have a spare tyre, those puncture fixes are ok ,but no good if you hit and split the tyre.I love Cornwall too,Ive been there so many times ..I went to Jamaica inn ..it was actually quite disappointing .stay safe on your journey

    hiya Lav how are you today?how did you get on with the ECG?It is getting cold over here too ...the rabbits had their first hot water bottle last night .we await with bated breath what YBs next necessity will be ...says me !ha ha take care and thanks for the sunshine !

    hiya ppqp...soundss like your boss and the co ordinator are both richard craniums .dont waste your breath or energy on them .what are the books you got? enjoy them .

    hiya everyone else hope all is well.

    I came into some money and bought a petrol tanker and drove it to the petrol station. The massive queues of drivers were so friendly and let me go to the front of the queue.

    Such a shame there was no petrol left after Id finished filling it up.

    Jeremy Clarkson to host a new show merging Millionaire with Top Gear.

    Who wants to win a tank of Petrol.

    From October, 1st new regulations will change driving lessons to include orderly queuing at petrol stations and forecourt self defence techniques.

    I strolled past a queue of cars with my petrol lawnmower to fill it up and was accused of cutting in line.


    I was in morrisons earlier and I saw a stressed looking bloke buying 4 cases of San Miguel, 5 paella ready meals and 6 chorizo sausages. I thought to myself.....

    Re: 26 September

    Hey friends,

    Nice day here, sun & all
    The Echo went well & the tech who did the ultrasound used to work at the same hospital I did, haha! I have to wait a few weeks to see the cardiologist again for results but the tech said ‘don’t worry about this, OK?’ So I take that as a good sign. I’m taking advantage of the nice days & getting lots of walking done, housework not so much haha!

    PQ, for quite a long time I’ve had the feeling your boss & The coordinator have ‘something’ going on behind the scenes….could that be a possibility or just my imagination?? Sounds like both of them need to move on & out. Well our weather lady said we’re getting a cold front from Canada so maybe you should talk to her, Lol Hope you enjoy your books!

    Cyn, thinking of you

    Hellos going out to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Mick, can I hire you to clean a few things around here? I wish I had your energy & interest in doing stuff like that.
    It does seem like a long time since you talked about your trains, seasonal I guess. I’m going to close windows in the chicken house tonight, getting chilly at night!

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Good news, boss not contracting to do payroll. He's spent the last two days talking to staff individually and handing out their responsibilities. My turn tomorrow so I'll let you know how that goes.

    Mick...you've got way too much energy, you should share. LOL It has been ages since you've been up in the loft, I'm sure it all came back to you. Yup, that would be the title I would give them. She sure has been sucking up to me since her meeting with the boss yesterday. Wonder what that's all about. Just picked up some more murder mysteries. My usual authors Coulter, P.D. James, Baldacci. My sleeping has been so hit and miss I don't want to be without reading material.

    Lav...small world, glad the echo went well. Even if the techs aren't allowed to say anything I'm sure the comment gave you some relief. I've had the same feeling about the two of them but I don't think it's possible. I've met his wife and kids and I'm sure they have a solid relationship. Did want to float the rumor around though. Your weather lady must have been talking about another Canada. LOL

    TG...safe travels and we'll be thinking of you.

    Hello to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Hope we all have a good night....PPQP

    Re: 26 September

    Evening greetings friends,

    Feeling. A bit chilly here today but I love this weather after the hot & lethargic summer we just had. I’ll take a cold front from Canada any day, haha!!
    I need 6 more minutes of walking to complete my 60 minutes for the day so I’ll just go walk around the yard for a while.

    PQ, sounds like things are beginning to shape up at the office. Can’t wait to hear about your new job responsibilities - hope it doesn’t overload you.
    So you don’t think the boss & coordinator are playing grab a$$ behind closed doors, LOL. Time will tell all I guess.

    Mick, sorry if you have to delay your departure due to flooded roads, that’s a shame. You can always keep working on your trains until things reopen I guess.
    I hope you have a great time when you do get on the road, send us pics of Wales

    Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie, hope you are well.

    Cyn, thinking of you!!

    Take care all
    Lav

    Re: 26 September

    MAE ALL...

    No additional responsibilities other than I am now first on the security call out. He has dived out usernames and passwords to those that need them. The rest he'll turn over to the new GM. WTF He still has full access to the network and server. I'll be emailing the board to verify. Rumors abound on social media today about Alberta locking down as the Premier was going to talk today. Nope, he did accept some help from the feds and they're sending in the army to some hospitals to help out.

    Mick...meeting with the boss was the same old useless shit. So I asked him if everyone was their own boss and he said yes, you all just have to get along. Everybody is so frustrated with him they don't care anymore, just leave. Sorry your trip may get delayed because of the flood. hope it gets sorted soon.

    Lav...be careful what you wish for, winter hasn't hit yet. LOL Did you get your 6 more minutes in? Don't think you have to wonder about the boss & coord anymore. She walked up to his office while we were having our meeting and he said we're busy, get lost. She left in tears. What an ass. Time to quit thinking about the office.

    TG...hoping the trip is going good.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 26 September

    Mae all -

    Sorry to be out of touch... very busy days getting ready to start out, andon Wdnesday I decided to go -even though I was starting in the afternoon... all okay, only a half-hour of driving in the dark to my destination. Today a long one - 9 hours driving.... but I am in good shape to get to my niece's house by tomorrow late afternoon, bonus. Then to my first home in Omaha, NE to see my brother, then... we'll see...

    I'm tired, and sorry that I told people that I would stop and see them... seems very overwhelming right now, but I'm sure in the end it will all work out.

    Glad to hear that things are moving along in all quarters. Mick, good luck getting ready to start out... let the water go down, please! PPQ, soon that boss will no longer there to torment you! Lav, glad to hear about the ECG... looking forward to you getting the official results.

    Myinjusred leg /hip sometimes gets sore and cranky, but I keep stopping and moving, and have lots of levels of padding to keep the correct position. Basically, so far so good... thanks all for the good wishes...

    Cheers, and wishing all well ---

    TG...just thought I'd check the thread before going to bed and am so glad I did! Plans to stop and see people don't always work out and I'm sure everyone understands. You sound in good spirits and the trip has been uneventful so far Keep up with those stops and moving, you got this.
