  1. I left that jackass a very polite but pointed comment on his pseudo-apology post about how apologizing for saying something that you thought does not at all change what you think (him saying he'd be happy if I died of Covid) , my example being "If I said "I hope you die of complications from the vax," and then apologized for saying it, the apology does not in any way change that I hope(d) you('d) die. I wish I'd thought to copy and paste the thing here for your amusement, because apparently the comments aren't visible. Anyway, I closed with "I do not hope you die of complications from the vax but I do hope you get your head out of your ass ,if only for the benefit of your employees who will be the ones to suffer from the drop in sales caused by your ill-informed and vile rant. and I did tell him I removed the NAA revolver that was on my future purchases list and will not be buying any more products from his company.
  2. Concerned citizens cannot make educated choices... and most of them are too stupid to realize that their current choices are not informed by reality. They just follow along like sheep whatever the legacy media is currently spouting. I spent my childhood hearing about the Ice Age we were heading for that never arrived, so until there is good info available (not temps taken over asphalt parking lots) I'm not taking the ScreamingMeemies seriously about the Greenhouse Effect here, either. The evidence available is entirely... inconclusive.
  3. I want all my kitchen cabinets to have pullouts. I thought about having it done when the house was built ( I SHOULD have had them do it then, but I didn't want the cost in the mortgage, since I'd be paying for it more than once that way). Mr. C kept giving me excuses fort not doing it - the REAL reason is that he doesn't have the time, and has too many other projects around here to add one more... so I bought ONE pull-out unit for my pantry that I'm going to try installing myself after I get everything in the garden and the hoop house harvested and canned/frozen/whatever eaten. If it works, I'll buy the rest and that will be my major house project (outside painting the living room, dining room, kitchen and hallway) this winter. And someone should slap me upside the head if I think to add one more thing to do to my list for the next 6 months...
  4. that hand has spent a lot of time swimming in the ocean!!!
  5. LOL. I still get my 50 year old brother a Lego set for Xmas every year. Nothing as fancy as that CAT though. During the Covidiocy when he started working from home, I sent him a care package with a couple little bitty Lego sets in it for "stress relief." Cracked us both up.
  6. I still hang out at the used bookstore and the little independent quilters' fabric stores, but yeah, the mall was fun when I was in high school. After I got married, Mr.C and I used the mall for birth control - every time one of us started talking about having kids, we'd go to the mall, observe the kids there, and come home swearing we'd never have any. (Obviously, that eventually stopped working for us, since we have a couple, lol - but neither of them willingly goes to a mall unless there is a bookstore in it... the oldest would rather hang out in the coffee shop or walk in the park if she can convince whoever she's with to actually walk anywhere. The youngest doesn't do coffee... she's strictly a bookstore kid. And maybe the ice cream place if I give her a ride. She needs to practice parallel parking this week before her driver's test. Ugh.
  7. Visited my dad this yesterday. He has finally reached the age where his class no longer walks in the homecoming parade at college... they stop asking after their 60th reunion... he says every time he gets a bulletin from them, another classmate has passed (he's 86, so maybe this isn't a shocker). He's kind of bummed about it. All but one of his closest friends are still kicking, though they've all definitely slowed down. Makes me sad, too.
  8. Couple friends of the family in their 80s both fully vaxxed got the 'rona early last month, one was in the hospital for a week. Fortunately, they are both recovered now. That's the only person I know personally that has ended up in the hospital with it - everyone else was the spouse of someone I knew (but I'd never met the spouse) or someone who attended the same church I do but that I'd never had a conversation with (fairly new members or non-member attenders that were in other classes/activities than what I do). Supposedly there's been an uptick in town in the retired community (they've cancelled a bunch of their functions) but not anyone I know. It hasn't stopped the hospital from canning any staff who refuse to get the vax, even when they worked all thru the last 18 months on people who had the 'rona...
  9. Natural Laws 1) Do everything you have agreed to do, and 2) Do NOT encroach on other people or their property. I like it simple.
  10. also, Happy Italian explorer sailing Spanish ships to someplace not India day.
  11. Hell, I needed another round of physical therapy for my shoulder but skipped it because I'd exceeded the 12 visits per year that the insurance would pay part of... and shelling out another $800 a month just wasn't going to happen. But it's a new year now, and I'll probably try again because the screwed up shoulder is now painful about 90% of the time, and gives out on me on really inopportune moments, and I'm losing more range of motion while I type this...
  12. Lol. Sorry! It’s a silly joke among people who raise rabbits because it is not so easy to tell what sex a rabbit is when they are young, so when we’re wrong, we all blame the rabbit sex change fairy for messing things up… this is the first time the fairy has visited my rabbits… but I doubt it will be the last, especially if I try sexing rabbits without my reading glasses again…
  13. OMG I'm never going to recover from seeing that.
  14. I try to be compassionate... oh, hell, who am I kidding here? Anybody dumb enough to get out of their vehicle in a tiger park is obviously too stupid to remain in the gene pool. Darwin wins again.
  15. showed up in my rabbitry. Sigh. I was short two cages, so I had a pair of growout rabbits together in each one. They were only supposed to be there until they were 12 weeks old and large enough to process and NOT mature enough to be breeding, but things have been a little hectic, so I'm behind on the processing - I was going to do it TODAY, but instead I was lifting an AC unit and filling in the sinking ground beneath it. Anyway, when I dividing up the growouts, I carefully put the does in one cage and the bucks in another. I thought. Two days ago, one of the bucks started growling LOUDLY at the other, so, since I'd emptied my indoor cages (I had a couple rabbits indoors while their poor noses recovered from being chomped by the damn mosquitoes), I moved the growly one to a basement cage. Annnnnnd, now there are 6 rabbits in that cage. SHE had 4 blue and 1 black Silver Fox kit today... right when I was SUPPOSED to be sending rabbits to Freezer Camp, but didn't get to it (again)...obviously fathered by the buck that I correctly identified as a buck. I'm probably in trouble with alphabet-people for assuming the NOW-A-DOE'S gender earlier. Sigh. Chickens are SO MUCH EASIER.
  16. Also, all the local rags are printing all the democretin screeches about how awful this is. Freaking idiots, all of them.
  17. My oldest daughter likes Marie Kondo... next time she's home, I have to figure out a way to watch it with her (we don't have Netflix) just so her little sister and I can riff them...
  18. Jukis are GREAT machines, I am jealous! Put a leather needle in that one and it will sew up a niiiiiiice leather wallet. Also, it'll do multiple layers of denim. I had a chance a few years ago to get an industrial Bernina (and when I say that, I mean one that was 10 feet long), for free, but I had nowhere to put it. I've been kicking myself for not taking it anyway ever since... I mean, if the man can set up his reloading equipment in my kitchen, I should be able to put a 10 foot long sewing machine in the living room, right? Ha. No.
  19. That started off with "Get off my lawn!" and went from there...
  20. those morons were mostly FBI agents... and I wouldn't have paid it, I want her gone and not coming back...
  21. Assuming that’s true, I have no idea how anyone could think I was alt-right at all, since anyone reading what I’ve posted would see that 1) I believe the rights of the individual are paramount, 2) the standards I judge people by are based entirely on their actions, not their melanin content, place of birth, gender (there are 2, but if you want to wear dresses and makeup, go ahead, that doesn’t violate my rights in any way and it gives me some idea of your mental state), etc., etc., and 3) I am not anti-Christian, although I have days when I wonder what on earth God was thinking…
  22. I prefer Shakespeare performed to reading the plays. I like some of his poetry, though. Anyway, here is another vote for Patrick Stewart's Macbeth.
  23. Well, when they've repeatedly demonstrated their incompetence and word has gotten out to EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE WOLRD, no one in their right mind will spy for them knowing they'll be left behind when the regime changes...
  24. Annnnnnd now my internet is out and I’m using cellular for this…
