    Lav...well there's always a positive side. I'm sure the dog won't mind your frizzy hair. LOL Sounds like a good meal. I've got a few questions about your cooking so will chat with you later about it. Having no bosses is like having a vacation at work where productivity soars. LOL Yes, I've been compiling my notes about my thoughts on the new GM. I will speak up. I don't think Monday's snow will amount to much, just a heads up it's coming. Hope you have a good night...PPQP

    Re: 3rd october.

    hiya all..I couldnt get on earlier but spoke to Lav ...she managed to get straight on here.Mebbe it wasnt letting left handed people on or something ...anyways managed to get on now just before tea time ...how are we then today?all good I hope ..guess what ...the weather was poor this weekend gone ,and this week it is supposed to be lovely.
    My next door neighbour runs a club ..he was telling me that through the fuel shortages they cant make carbon dioxide to the amount they need ,so prices have shot through the roof ..he buys a cylinder of it for 9 ..thats the one that puts the fizz in fizzy drinks ..the price is now 62 a cylinder .Yesterday 600 pigs were culled in Britain ..why ?because there are no workers for the abbatoirs etc ..and the animals are usually despatched ...(horrible word) humanely using carbon dioxide cartridges..The country is a mess ..and all you see is the straw headed fool ...problem ? what problem . anyways I have a new toy to sort out and learn about.

    hiya Lav hows you then?Isnt it strange ,in years gone by in hospitals you had auxiliaries ,nurses ,sisters and Matron was God ..there were no clinical directors director of blah ...and then they did away with them ,found it didnt work and now brought them back again as well as directors and managers ..The old stuff worked..hope you have a good day .

    hiya ppqp hows you then ? make hay while the sun shines !there will be a boss with a new broom soon enough !!!make sure the boss believes in the "team "ethos not the me one.take care .

    hiya Sam teegee pauly etc ..hope you are all well ..anyone ever hear from pie?

    Re: 3rd october.

    Greetings friends,

    Besides chatting with Mick today I also managed to produce a low sodium potato salad (no mayo) & baked a fresh mango coffee cake, also low sodium & delicious!
    YB said he liked the potato salad but it was ‘bland’ & needed salt haha. He’ll never get it, never. Got my hour of walking in & did a few loads of laundry. How exciting is my life????

    PQ, you’re right about my dog - she loves me no matter what I look like Haha!!
    I agree, people are usually more productive at work when they’re not being micro-managed by some higher paid fool!! You’re not the boss of me!!!!
    I hope the snow holds off, it’s just not time for that yet.

    Mick, we are in deep do do here in the US as well. Prices are up on everything, supply chains interrupted & no real relief in sight. We are being advised to do our Christmas shopping extra early. Christmas is 80 days away, ugh. The whole meat production thing bothers me in the best of times but now it just makes me want to eat more vegan. I’m good with that, honestly.

    Cyn, hoping you are OK & safe.

    Hello to Det & Pauly, Sam & Pie wherever you are.

    Have a nice night all.

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...I read back to see if I missed something, what new toy? Wow, that's some price hike. Our gas is going up like crazy as well, good thing I don't really drive anywhere. I agree, I think the ability to manage and nurture a team is very important. So our weather was nice last week and it's turning this week, we appear to be opposites again.

    Lav...oooh potato salad, haven't had that for awhile. Speaking of food the childcare director and I went through all the food at the community centre and loaded up a pile of close to expiring commercial size cans and jars of things like beans, cranberry sauce, olives, pickles etc. She is going to drop it all off at one of the homeless shelters. My day was quiet but frustrating. The program coordinator showed up and stayed. As a matter of fact I left her there and came home early. To be fair it is the last day of our Farm Stand (farmers market), just don't know why she felt she had to stand around all day.

    Waves to TG, Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 3rd october.

    Greetings friends!

    Had a productive day, mostly in the kitchen, haha! I cooked up 2 batches of cinnamon apples (healthy style) & put half in the freezer. I love them as a side dish with most any meal. My recipe only uses a little coconut palm sugar which I like. I also made 3 1/2 quarts of veggie broth in the iP & froze that too. Got my hour of walking in, fed the stray cat & took care of chickens & the dog & made a turkey meatloaf, yum. We signed up today for a one day class at Longwood Gardens on the 17th making outdoor fall flower pots. Looking forward to doing something different

    PQ, we finished off the rest of the ‘bland potato salad’ tonight, haha. It was good, I no longer expect to taste salt in everything.
    Donating the unused food is a great idea, someone will have a good meal. I guess the coordinator has no real control over anything or anyone so she chose to just be annoying, LOL

    Mick, yep I did all of my walking today. I actually feel guilty if I don’t get my 60 minutes daily at this point.
    I’ve decided to ignore the news sources about ‘shortages’. I’ll know we have shortages when I see them for myself. Let’s face it, there’s a lot of things we can do without if necessary. I’m not falling for all the paranoia.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well.

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...I now remember the "noo" toy. Looks like you're getting the hang of it. Those drones can be pretty tricky even with an experienced operator. Glad the peskies are happy and healthy. I can't even see the grass with all the leaves on the ground. Our weather has turned, huge rain clouds have rolled in. They'll be bringing snow on Sunday/Monday. It was another quiet day, at least for. There was a bit of drama in childcare but I didn't even ask. The prog coord showed up this morning but didn't stay very long. If she's going to work from home I just want her to stay away.

    Lav...you did have a productive day, unlike mine. LOL I can curb my salt use with most things but not boiled potatoes. It totally changes the taste for me. I do believe I saw being annoying in her job description. Isn't it strange that the boss quits and she asks for an unpaid leave of absence. He should have granted it. The whole HR situation has to be dealt with, it's one of my priorities on my list for the board. I'm looking forward to hearing about outdoor fall flower pots. Something we could use at the community centre.

    Hello to the rest of the gang, hope you are well. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 3rd october.

    Hello everybody and how are we today then ? Hope everyone is doing OK it is a Lovelyday over here today. Just been up to the shops Doesn't seem to be too many shortages there today. I'm going out metal detecting on Sunday, hopefully the weather will hold.

    Hiya lav, And how are you today there? Hope all is well in your part of the world. Like you I'm not interested in the shortages when there's a shortage guess what we Won't be having It. Well done on the walking . I am like you I cannot sit still and if I do miss my walk I feel Like some thing is missing. Take care and have a great day

    Hiya ppqp How are you today then? Hope all is well. Yes flying a drone takes a bit of getting used to to especially if you want to do it properly full stop there are lots of rules and regulations and legalities that you must follow no but I would rather do it properly than not at all all. I am meeting up up with my friend on Tuesday day providing the weather is still good and see where we go from there. Hope all is well with you on the work front, that program coordinator seems to be a right fruit loop. As previously mentioned it is strange that she decided to exit the door or less than 24-hours after him now now not being 14 gossip far from me to say there may be some substance in the fact they disappeared at the same time I'm just saying like haha take care and have a great day
    I am doing this on my phone so apologies for any mistakes. Hello to everyone else out hope you're all well

    Re: 3rd october.

    Good evening all,

    I’m proud to say I am now the owner of some new wooden spoons for the kitchen. I’ve been looking to buy some new spoons & couldn’t find them anywhere until we stopped at the Amish hardware store today haha! Sometimes you just need the low tech kitchen helpers & nothing else will do.
    Still warmish, partly sunny but i know rain is heading in sometime this weekend. I guess I’ll be sweating on the treadmill indoors.

    PQ, sorry about the possibility of snow arriving so soon. Maybe it will go somewhere else, haha!
    I have to agree with your HR department being somewhat non-existent. Maybe they all fell asleep or something LOL

    Mick, I hope you are able to get out Sunday to go detecting. It’s been quite a while.
    I got my one hour of walking in today, I left the dog home on my second walk, haha. She has to stop & sniff at something about every 10 steps & it’s annoying. Get some more practice. With your drone & makes sure it’s outside this time haha!!

    Hello to Cyn, hope all is well.
    Hello Pauly & Det, Sam & PIe.

    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...I was wondering if there were rules and regulations. Here you almost have to have your pilots license. LOL My brother did get a couple of good videos of the community garden before they instituted the new rules. Hope the weather is good for you on both Sunday and Tuesday. I'd love to see your first attempt at a real flight. Be careful about the auto return to base, just saying.

    Lav...Haha, wooden spoons. When I was working from home and watching lots of cooking shows I noticed almost all of them used wooden spoons. Interesting. I'm sure this snow will just be a blip on the radar, if not I'll send it down to you. No HR department in the office but when I threatened to resign I found out there is an HR committee on the board. Who knew???

    I think the accountant has finally lost it. She is working on stuff that is none of her business but of course there's no boss to reign her in. LOL Our treasurer was in today to sort out some payroll stuff with her and he told to her to make a bullet point list of everything she's upset about what goes on in the office. I hope she does but I also hope she doesn't put her job in jeopardy. It was a quiet day, down right boring actually. I think it's time for me to delve into doing some documentation that I've been putting off.

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