    MAE ALL...

    I did post yesterday but it probably froze. LOL Holy Dina it's cold out there. It was -29C/-20F with a bitter windchill making it feel like -40C/F. The only saving grace was son went to McDonald's in the morning so he warmed up and brushed off the car. YAY Usually the boss would take us all out for lunch to celebrate someone's birthday. He said since we're not going to a restaurant any time soon he felt the birthday person should have the day off instead. So I'm not going into work tomorrow!!!

    Mick...so the old wives tale it's too cold to snow is false. We got plenty of snow last night and more to come tomorrow. Did you get the jet on the cooker cleaned out? I'm glad you were able to book your next Chrimbo adventure, you really have to be on it as you say staycations are exploding. You really got to get that wildlife camera set up.

    Lav...rats, I forgot to pick up spinach at the store when I stopped on my way home from work. It does sound like winter has arrived for you. I'm so glad I don't have to deal with this weather tomorrow. Had 3 of my client renters cancel their classes till further notice. With this Omicron everybody is back in wait and see mode. School for kids has been postponed for a week and then they might switch to online again. I can't even think about gardening/seeds right now.

    TG...isn't technology frustrating! You follow all the instructions, do everything right and nothing. There's the positive, your eyes checked out ok. Now you can see the light. LOL Work was pretty quiet today, no childcare, no program coordinator, no visitors to the building. So I killed time taking down all the Xmas decorations and then went home.

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

    Mae all -

    Big wind blowing right now as I write this!!! Rattling the shingles and windows...

    Sounds like everyone is dealing okay with their winters... I got a great report on my eyes, now just need to get new specs...

    you win the prize, PPQ, jeez what weather you have to deal with! Glad you were able to have a shorter day because of the weather. Please stay safe.

    Mick, glad that you and Julie have your holidays planed well in advance! I have never been very good at that. Enjoynthe garden work and planning.

    Lav, I saw with horror the stories of the east coast.. I hope your son wasn't stuck on any hiway, what a nightmare. Also hoping these next storms miss you. Enjoy your sourdough and whatever else you always manage to make yummy.

    Sending love to Pauly,Det, Sam, QW, Texhie and all else dropping by... may we be well...

    Re: January 02 2022

    Good afternoon all. How are we today then? Hope everyone is doing well well. Instead of being as was forecasted under about out 20 inches of snow we have glorious sunshine who stop the sun is cracking the flags. Yes, it is cold but nevertheless it looks really lovely. I've done quite a few little job this morning outside in the garden and re fixing one of the guttering pipes on the roof if. Both rabbits outside enjoying themselves. I go for my blood test tomorrow at 10 to 10 in the morning(obviously it wouldn't be at night!) Up until this blood test I always had to fast the day before full stop for this one all I have to do is not eat red meat the day before. Why this has changed I don't know but happy enough with that!
    Hiya lav and how are you today then? Hope all is well over in your neck of the woods. Yes that is what I am looking at this year just colour in the garden. I still have a flower on a rose! And some of the plants that should be hibernating are starting to bud out already. I told you my weather system was much more accurate... today the stone is dry! Hope all is well with the family take care and look after yourself

    Hiya ppqp wow it's sounds like you're getting some heavy-duty weather there... I must be honest it looks better in Alberta than it does in Lancashire! No I never got the jet fitted properly or cleaned out out on the cooker there is an issue with it in as much as it looks like someone in the past has spilled something over the burner and it has blocked the jet. The little plate on the top of the Ring is screwed on the burner and someone in the past has rounded off posi drive head of the Screw so that I had to drill it out but that now left the length of the bolt still screwed in that won't come out because it feels like to me that it has been cross threaded or has cold welded itself in a nutshell it is going up to get fixed not the Saturday but the Saturday after from the place I got it. Your weather sounds pretty brutal take care of yourself

    Hiya teegee how are you today then? hope all is well. I was talking to the motorhome dealer this morning and definitely the staycation holidays are going through the roof. There was a possibility Dr that with different countries opening up up that at the stay-at-home holidays would subside definitely not the case. I used to live in Southport Lancashire will stop they have a great flower show every year ear which is really enjoyable to see and walk around. It has been cancelled for the last 2 years, for obvious reasons but it is back on this year full stop in September Julie looked to buy tickets and book a campsite in Southport for the show which is is in August. Both the show and the campsite were booked up for the 3 days in total. She managed to get a cancellation the other night as she was on the reserve list so that shows you just how mad it is glad you got your eyes report but if you can read it why do you need glasses haha take care look after yourself

    Hiya pauly hope you are ok

    Right folks that's me have a great day wherever you are be safe be sober

    Good evening frineds,

    First of all: HAPPY BIRTHDAY PQ!!!
    Hope your day was nice despite being so freaking cold, Brrrrr!!!
    My granddaughter is in band & chorus at school & both activities have been shut down due to Omicron spreading so quickly, sad.

    Cyn, I-95 was closed south of DC during that storm the other day so my kid was able to get to work & back. I can’t imagine being stuck on that road for 18 hrs, ugh.
    Sounds very cold & windy where you are too, stay warm!!

    Mick, sounds like you escaped a huge storm, good for you.
    I guess you’re having your blood lipids levels checked, good luck

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie, hope all are OK
    Have a nice night all!

    Re: January 02 2022

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well. Television internet and everything went down yesterday completely would not work. What an absolute nightmare Julie end up phoning the company who were euro based in India now that was a conversation. The upshot was there was an engineer out today he has changed the modem upstairs and also the set-top box downstairs as well as as taking with some cables and splitter boxes. Sounds like I know what I'm talking about but trust me I don't! The upshot is the television telephone and everything are working now. It started snowing this morning but I turn to rain and is melting. I went for my blood tests this morning check my blood pressure as well it's seem to be a bit high so I came home and checked it myself twice and it was below what it previously was.

    Hiya ppqp I'm sorry I missed your birthday, but Happy Birthday to you anyway. Hope you had a decent day.

    Hiya lav how are you today then Hope all is well with you. A lot of places are shutting down over here because of the virus as well. It's about the spreading of it as opposed to the level of illness sickness and mortality and dare I say it the number of people that are using it as an excuse to dodge work. You take care and look after yourself and if the weather is anything to go by expect snow and rain over to you!

    Hiya teegee how are you today then? hope all is well with you you.

    Big shout to the rest of the gang

    Re: January 02 2022

    MAE ALL…

    I’m a little cheesed off with my son right now. He used my car yesterday and I specifically asked him if he plugged it in, to which he said yes. Went out this morning and it wasn’t plugged in. I did manage to get it started but it took awhile.

    TG…I don’t want the prize. LOL Hope the wind didn’t give you any grief.

    Mick…did take the day off yesterday but didn’t move from the couch. It is absolutely frigid out there. I wonder why the change in your blood test procedure. Too bad you couldn’t fix the jet and now you have to head back to where you got it. At least it’ll be somebody else’s problem. Glad you got your tv and internet back. I can just imagine the conversation Julie had. Thanks for the birthday wishes, another year wiser.

    Lav…thanks for the birthday wishes. Other than postponing the start of school till next Monday no other restrictions have surfaced. A couple of my client renters have elected to cancel their classes though so it’s quiet here in the community centre again. I saw the footage of the I-95, unbelievable. Glad it didn’t affect your son.

    Pauly…thanks for the birthday wishes I did have a good one. Refused to do any household chores. LOL I think you’re right about covid making the rounds. They say you can expect 1 in 3 have it.

    Shout out to the gang. Stay safe everyone….PPQP

    Re: January 02 2022

    Good evening friends,

    Currently 33 degrees & feels like snow. We are supposed to get a few inches overnight, glad I don’t have to go anywhere in the morning.
    Found myself vacuuming up a ton of dog hair today. Why is the dog shedding so much in the middle of winter? Probably for the same reason the forsythia tried to bloom this week too, weird.

    Pauly, sorry Louie has Covid. My grandson really didn’t have many symptoms at all, hopefully Louie will be good in a few days.
    I imagine the schools are going to go virtual again just to stop the transmission of the virus. Stay well!

    Mick, glad you got your internet & telephone issues resolved. Our internet company is based in Maryland, just a few miles away so calling them is not a problem, Lol
    My BP is always higher at the doctor’s office, ‘white coat syndrome’ it’s called. I’m still working to get my evening BP to a happy place, almost there. Take care

    PQ, glad your birthday was good. Next time tell your son to text you a picture of the car being plugged in, haha!
    Yep, that mess on I-95 was sure awful, I couldn’t stand being stuck like that. I hope you get some warmth move into your region soon, geez!

    Hello to Cyn, hope all is well with you.

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie & anyone dropping by.
    Have a good night all!

    Re: January 02 2022

    Mae all -
    Sorry to be away... I am in the middle of renting an apartment, getting the movers, the utilities, wifi, etc.
    I keep saying over and over " all will be well...".

    Lav, so glad your son was not in the storm! Good luck with all the next ones!

    Pauly, thank you so much for your New Year's post... So sorry about Louie, but yes, I think they are just saying for us to expect to get it... and then stay in so we don't infect any unvaccinated people. I feel that staying in is my civic duty - to help the hospitals and staff get through this hard time.

    Best belated birthday wishes, PPQ!!! Glad that you could stay home - and glad that the car started!

    Mick, that sounds like a lot of "fixing" going on at your house... glad that the internet, etc. got sorted. We are all so dependent on it now... (really, you have a rosebud?!)

    Hello to anyone stopping by; stay warm, take care, and be safe.

    big hello to everyone else

    ENGLAND CRICKET TEAM : Avoid humiliation in the next ashes series in Australia by not getting vaccinated.

    I was interviewing candidates for a job helping out with the cattle on my farm. Literally the second guy came in and said straight away - "Alright la, I'm from Liverpool. I'm a scouser!"

    "Liverpool you say. Fantastic. Say no more. You've got the job. I'll take you to the cow" - I said offering my hand in congratulations.

    We shook hands but he looked confused and said - "Just like that? Don't you want to interview me first? And why straight to the cow?"

    "Cos you said you're a scouser" - I replied.

    "I know that no matter what happens, you'll keep milking it"

    The doctor just gave me a diagnoses of CDO. It’s very similar to OCD but the letters are in the CORRECT ALPHABETICAL ORDER as the are supposed to be.

    Darth Vader is planning on unleashing a new Covid variant that will rapidly spread all throughout the Galaxy.

    It will be called the Omi-cron Kenobi variant.
