Re: Random Stuff to Ponder...

czechs-and-holdings: Can we PLEASE remove the stigma for blue collar work in America? “You don’t wanna be a garbage collector when you grow up, do you?” $34,000 a year, no college needed? God forbid you take an honest job $7,000 above Michigan’s average cost of living line. “You don’t wanna be a di...

Re: My dear Joon...

The trustee says that Phil's headstone is at the cemetery. I need to call tomorrow and see if it's been installed.

Re: My dear Joon...

Always an adventure, life. On Saturday, the Honey walks in and says he needs to make a call. He can't install the software he just bought. So I'm asking, what software, who from? And he tells me he got a pop-up telling him that his computer needed help. He completely forgot that we're paying The Gee...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Hello again! First of all, thank you for the lovely cards. Mom enjoyed the birthday card. Anything computer related is a miracle to her. The surgery went well. Thank god, the tumor was benign. She had to stay at the hospital for a week, and when she was released, she could hardy wait to get back in...

Re: My dear Joon...

One of my friend's from the bazaar crafting lost her mother early this week. Cathy came over and dropped off another bunch of these snowman/s'mores Christmas ornaments (they are so cute; I've already assembled 4 of them from the last time.) She told me about Dottie's mom. She's the one who collected...

Re: My dear Joon...

No dryer today. A note says that it's sucking down quarters, and not putting out. So, I was up at 4:07, and that's what I found. I was so looking forward to washing all this and having well-stocked dressers and closets. I went back to bed, and when the place that owns the machines opened (they're an...

Re: My dear Joon...

The Honey's okay. It's like it all never happened. Sunday we went to the Secular Franciscan Family picnic. I had three chicken wings and two thighs; Duane had one piece, so I ate what he didn't. We brought four bean salad (green, wax, kidney and garbanzos in a sweet and sour dressing, with sugar as ...

Re: My dear Joon...

Last night the Honey told me that he was more depressed than ever, and that he wants to kill himself. For the first time this month. We've been through this, although I don't remember if I've ever written the all of how maddening it is, in here. On those occasions, whenever he's said stuff like this...

Re: My dear Joon...

What a week it has been... Monday was the GP - in fact, the first two days were all for doctoring Duane. The good news is that the Honey is off the pain meds for his back, and we're getting a combination blood pressure/potassium pill that will make filling the box easier for him. Tuesday was the den...

Re: My dear Joon...

I had to go back to see what was going on, I've been so discombumberated. We had no Michael today. The tail end of Gordon came up our way and change our hot sweaty weather to a damp chill. Everybody at his house has got the coughs and sniffles, which is sliding into the creeping crud - that's a medi...

I Am Part of the Resistance NYT OP-ED

The (New York) Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay...

Re: What Music Are You Listening to?

I cannot be the only one who wants a CD soundtrack of Aretha Franklin's Funeral.

Another case of the best party your friends will ever throw for you on the one day they know you can't attend, but it was incredible and I will never stop being blown away by it.
