    Tuesday July 14 2020

    Had a less than satisfactory night of sleep. I stayed up late to see if I could see the comet, but the sky was still too light to see many stars. Woke up at 3, had wave after wave of hot flashes. Finally gave up and perused a couple of online newspapers. And now I am sitting at work, procrastinating about entering data into the state system for communicable diseases. It's rather tedious, with lots of little drop down boxes, much like an EMR. There was an interesting article in yesterday's New York Times about how public health relies on the ancient technology of fax machines to transfer data. Yep, that's sure the truth. Our clerks are having to enter the info from over 800 tests done over the weekend into the data base today, by hand. It looks to be another beautiful day, up to the mid 70s. I plan to leave work a little early, as my last home visit went late. I will pick up something for dinner (maybe Thai) and then play online trivia with dd. And I need to drop off some blueberries for the grandsons, that I forgot last night.

    Oh, I agree. This was a never a true discussion. The thread's premise was built on a weak foundation.

    Happy Bastille Day Woke up with a headache, not sure why. Was listening to a political debate in the evening, perhaps thst was the cause Work got crazy, with multiple emails requiring changes to my schedule. Kinda frustrating. Hoping things settle down today Exercised and worked on embroidery after work. Walked down to the mailbox but otherwise didn't get outside Need to research some info about our local ANA chapter, now that I'm a member I want to be active. Also might shift my political activities a bit, that debate got me thinking Going to gradually get warmer throughout the week. Rain expected tomorrow, rain will become more likely later in the week

    Hot here, but not as hot as it is further inland. If we didn't open the doors and windows our house would be as hot as a cr in the sun. That saves on heating on sunny cold days. Yesterday we went for a drive and it was 94 in the house WITH windows open when we returned. It was down to 85 F 20 minutes after opening doors. I have window air conditioner, but we just sat on the porch for a while.

    Good morning! Joe, glad you're feeling okay. Herring, glad you had a talk with your cousin. I always presume people have the same access to information that I have and that pretty much everyone understands that masks are part of the equation in dealing with this. Guess that isn't true. Stars, sorry about the TV. Sounds like the husband is heading towards another knee replacement and probably knows this. When he gets tired of hurting and the pain is just too much I'm sure he will do something. Hope he's not still smoking? BC, I don't really enjoy the beach when it's all that hot out. You might find me walking because I don't mind heat and sweating, but just to visit, not much unless it's for sunset in the cooler part of the day. Hope the re-opening of work goes well. What's funny is I think the South learned from the north to shut down and flatten the curve some, but now the North can learn from the south on how not to re-open and how not to behave. I was reading about a 30 year old in Texas that died from attending a Corona Virus party. And another making the rounds is the 37 year old in Ohio that claimed it was "hype" and died from Covid. Slept in late this morning after working the weekend. Going back to the barbershop I was going to last year. My current barber is moving next month, but I haven't been comfortable with her stance against protestors and BLM. I should be able to separate politics and getting a haircut because I really like her, but can't bring myself to support her business. Glad she's moving so that would avoid any awkwardness. Have a great day.

    Morning Decided to do church via Zoom yesterday as I was feeling a bit off during the morning. Felt better by the end of the day Did some cooking, some embroidery, and rode my bike. Was a bit cooler than it has been Back to work today. Coworker is off until Wed so things may be a bit crazy until then. Hope I'm wrong Will be in the 80s for a while which is nice, but the hot weather will return by the weekend

    Is this the NY Times article you're referring to? If so, this is far from an accurate description of events.

    I read an NY Times article. Whether it was the article you referred to I don't know, as you opted not to include the headline of the article. I also read the three articles Muno posted, as well as others. The lady that was "struck" by the vehicle and ended up on the hood stepped in front of the car and placed her hands on the hood, after the vehicle had stopped, in what appeared an attempt to prevent the car from leaving. After the car started moving, the lady took several steps back before jumping on the hood, and could just as easily moved from in front of the vehicle. As the car started to move another protester, possibly the one that grabbed her door and later jumped on the car as well, attempted to prevent the car from leaving by attempting to block the car with his bicycle. As you didn't answer my question, I will ask again, did you watch the video? Bloomington police search for the driver, car suspected of injuring two protesters

    It seems the cops didn't believe driver was "ambushed," as they arrested her.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Are you referring to the privately funded and built section of the wall along the Rio Grande?

    Presidential Election 2020

    So disappointed that I couldn't use my tickets for the Trump rally in Portsmouth, NH. The delicate snowflake cancelled due to foul weather. It's been nothing but sunshine in the area.

    If I were Jill Biden...

    Bless your heart. This is one of the funniest posts I've read in a while. I'm sure you must have meant to type Melania Trump.

    Hey all, It's a hot one here, with temps in the mid 90s. We went to the beach for a few hours, but it was a bit too hot, even with an umbrella. I dragged my chair down to the water and sat half submerged for a bit. Tomorrow may be cooler. I'm now working from home Mon and Fri, and in the office T, W, and Th. I am hoping our Covid numbers don't jump again, resulting in another shut down. Joe-I hope you sleep well tonight. Tweety-Please take care of yourself and do what you can to relieve stress. I'm sorry things have gone so wrong in your state. Herring-I'm glad your cousin finally listened to you. You have the patience of a saint. J22-My tomatoes are still green, although the plants themselves are very lush. I should have cucumbers this week. Glad you were able to see ds this morning. Stars-I am also happy that you and DH are getting some Nannie-free time together. Does he have a diagnosis for his knee, or have you not gotten that far yet? Please stay safe and well, everyone.

    Presidential Election 2020

    Yes, but I asked you very nicely to point me in the direction of some reputable sources as I could not find any. You were the one who made the original post and I told you I don't trust your source. I have found the names (Wikipedia, so I know who they are) but the things you seem so horrified about happened a long time ago. People mature and learn from their mistakes and looking at their pasts then leading BLM seems to me to be a progression from what these ladies have done for years. Americans have this thing about serving in the armed forces (not such a big thing in UK) so why has there been no outrage from the right over Trump being a draft dodger? That was about the same time as the stuff you are writing about. Please remember that I was around in the 1960's and 70's and remember that time well.

    G'day! Came in to a verbal altercation between a day and night nurse. I stayed out of it. Night nurse apologized and said she was stressed from being short staffed. Another floor had a nurse say the stress was giving her a stroke and she left without accepting her assignment. 15,000 covid positive cases yesterday. The most of any state any day ever. And so it goes.....

    Morning Another night of iffy sleep. Woke up at 330 and 5am then 6. Not sure why, everything seems fine. Feel slightly off this morning Yesterday was productive. Didnt see many bird yesterday, perhaps the area I chose wasn't a good spot. But did get to the farmer's market and get the baking done. Exercised and made more progress on embroidery Completed some CEUs, the longest module I've ever done, and was happy I passed the quiz on the first try. Don't need any more CEUs until December. Have nearly exhausted all the CEUs at my current source, hoping having joined ANA I can get access to some others Today have in person church, some cooking to do, and an errand or two. Might do a little cleaning. Might ride the bike too if it isn't too hot Weather is a bit cooler today after the rain yesterday

    Evening all - computer was incommunicado for couple days. It had to be "ZOOM" enabled for my cardiology tele-vid consult. So my sister took it for programming. After all that, had to postpone the consult anyway. I need a second person present but she would have had to travel thru the height of Hurricane/TS FAY. And we were to get hit BIG. So appt is resched. Weather is horrendously HOT! Am just catching up. I worry so for all you still working or having risk exposures. Esp Tweety in FL.

    Protesting, except for silent parades, are always frought with danger. Better to organize ways to strike your enemies in the wallet. Burn your Target down and they just move elsewhere. I lived in a neighborhood in anesthesia school that had no grocery or drug stores (in the 80's). Real big problem. Even now residents have to walk far to the new supermarkets because they move where the highways are.

    If I were Jill Biden...

    If I were Jill Biden, I would most certainly encourage Joe to drop out of the Presidential race. How can she allow her husband to embarrass himself in front of the world? Isn't she, in the long run embarrassing herself, as well? Is she too smitten with the idea of being bestowed the title of "First Lady" to step up and protect her husband from disgracing himself? The poor guy obviously has a brain dysfunction and needs someone who cares to step up and protect him. Comments...?

    Morning Sleep was a bit questionable last night, not sure why. Perhaps I ate too much before bed Am annoyed with the village, sent a letter of interest regarding the conservation commission a week ago and have heard nothing Going to do birdwatching before it gets warm. Also have some errands to run and need to stop at the farmer's market for jams Svengoolie has one of the British horror movies from Hammer Studios, they tend not to be that great so not sure if I'll watch Leaning towards joining the ANA, as I'd like to keep up on changes in the profession and have some support. Too easy to get isolated and unaware of shifts that might affect you Will be somehwat less hot and humid the next few days, which will be nice, although rain is possible
