    Feeling sorry for myself

    Some time 15 years or so ago I thought I would buy me a little motorcicle to go back and forth to training, saving my Pontiac Grand Prix (which got lousy gas mileage in town) Then I got nearly run off the road in said Grand Prix, and I opted to stay in the oversized tin can. Definitely not worth...

    my laptop just died. Some funky things blitzed through - visually speaking then the black screen of complete death. with a tendency to overheat, I wondered if that had happened again, but no, it won't turn back on. This is actually only the 2nd computer that died on me. Ok, the 3rd. My first...

    I never saw them before August at my old house. Never saw any before now at this location. Sadly we only get one species, but hey. I am not sure why the locations vary so greatly. just about 30 miles difference, and the rest is largely the same. Making plans for next year's garden I suppose...

    It is 50 degrees here and I am FREEZING Just kidding. I am enjoying having the backdoor open. I just wonder why my neighbors have started to play the radio in their backyard 24/7....it isn't annoying, just puzzling. Then again, I have not heard her goat in a while.

    Don't disagree. But it isn't a social event. The eating part is. And OMG....the mere existence of a hickory wood fire makes me drool I think I need to get some pork chops to make Schwenksteaks.

    smoking is a boring proposition. If you do it right, it's HOURS Now, the actual act of grilling, it's the caveman thing, Hey Gurk, meat burn good eats. and it makes thirsty It is an international phenomenon though, men gather around the fire, the women in the kitchen.

    you need to get one of those remote thermometers. No checking until the fire is right, no checking until the food is ready. come to think of it, I have not smoked a thing in 2 years it seems. Once, perhaps.

    well, called Dad. mostly we talked about health, but the usual nagging came up, and I did what any reasonable daughter would do: I lied. Well, sort of, I will look into the request, I just need to find the professional who can answer my questions. (longer story, not to bore people) He said he...

    holy poop, welcome back to the living. Unfortunately this vaccination thing is going around. I have no idea why. Glad to see you back here, and that you are on the mend. Sending best wishes to your wife. When it rains it pours, doesn't it.

    With great sadness, I realized the huge relief when the answering machine picked up when I called my dad. He is in his 80s, and right now not doing well healthwise. I love him dearly, but dread any conversation with him It always seems like I am being chastised like a kid. The contact is...

    well, I am a little confused by the compilation of studies listed: A great many have not happened yet, at least one was aborted and relatively few were listed as complete. Seems that different studies suggest that Ivermectin does nothing against COVID 19. In any case, people should not take...

    soooo... we can minimize the mortality (which isn't the actual problem, really) with dewormer (which is available in human grade and dose) Vs minimize sickness at large via vaccine. hmmmmmm

    then again, in certain jurisdictions, there was a tendency to not jump on the scientifically proven common sense bandwagon in terms of mitigating measures. (In short, too many cops neglected to wear masks, or get vaccinated.)

    Well ivermectin does not do anything for COVID. except maybe it takes the unvaccinated fools out of the gene pool. Not sure why you are bringing flea and tick collars in the mi. No, I don't buy them. the chemicals are too harsh, I do not want to expose myself or my pets to them. Again, we...
