    Saturday 4/13

    Morning- Day 3 of insomnia. I've been up since 3 AM. I took melatonin, but it's not keeping me asleep. It's my Saturday to work. I'm glad it's only a 3 hour shift. I see a nap in my future.
  2. Morning- It's cold and gray here. Spring will return tomorrow. I'm tired today. The insomnia bug has been hitting me for the last few nights. I may have to increase the melatonin. Ted-your camera set-up sounds very cool! Can't wait to see your pics from your trip. I know you miss your dad very much, and it's ok to feel that some stress has been lifted with his passing. Take good care of yourself. Joe-Isn't it annoying when you're so close to your weight goal, and you can't lose those last couple of pounds? Hope J's root canal went well. Tweety-I would love the food in Japan! I could eat seafood every day. Your pics have been great. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Herring-Hope you get lots of good stuff at the Farmer's Market. I can't wait til they start up around here for the summer. Take care, all.

    What a beautiful pic of the cherry trees, J22! I hope all goes well for DS tomorrow.

    Good morning! Just got to work, as today is my late day. Lowe's delivered my new front door this AM, which will be installed on Saturday. It will be good to have a door that doesn't require Herculean strength to close properly. Other than that, nothing going on. I've been enjoying Tweety's pictures from Japan on FB. It's cold there! Hope all have a good day.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Exactly. All the handwringing and pearl clutching done by conservatives who say the wall will stop these issues is bull****, in my opinion. The bottom line is that they just don't want brown people in the US. White Nationalism, aka "They will not replace us".

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Why don't you read the article and see what it says, instead of making inferences from the title? Yes, there is a crisis, but it's not of the refugees' making. The crisis is that Trump and company have created a huge problem and are treating people inhumanely. It would be good if he would get off the golf course (remember when he said he would be too busy to play golf?) and off Twitter and focus on the job that some of us elected him to do.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I was able to access this article via the link you posted, and I don't have a subscription to WaPo. There is a crisis at the border, but the crisis is how immigration is being handled by the current administration. Trump is said to have enacted the worst immigration policies of any president.

    Good morning! Glad that Tweety made it safely to Japan. Stay warm! It won't be getting out of the 40s here for a few days. The end of the week should be warmer. We're getting lots of April showers. Work is busy as allergy season has arrived. Hope all have a good day!

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    I keep hearing this, yet I know about 8 people who are having difficulty finding jobs. They all have different levels of education, experience, and are looking in different industries. All but one are over 50. I wonder if there's some ageism going on, or if this is particular to my geographic area. I know I'm looking at a tiny microcosm, but it seems as though finding a job should be easier with this low level of unemployment.

    Friday April 5 2019

    Good morning- This has been a great work week for me. I only worked Mon, Wed, and Thurs. I wish I could do this every week. The staff at work gave the boss their "manifesto" that I edited, and it went over surprisingly well. He was receptive to their suggestions and thoughts. We will see if any real change occurs. In other exciting news, I just had my septic system pumped and thankfully, it is operating as it should. I live in fear of it failing, and needing to replace it at a cost of about $30,000. Joe-It's always good when someone is receptive to your work and suggestions. Glad the fast helped. I keep telling myself I should try intermittent fasting, but I can never to make to lunch without eating something! Tweety-I hope you have a good day, too! In fact, I hope we all have a good day today!

    Good morning! The sun is shining and it might hit 50 today! W00t!! I just have to get through today and then I have 3 days off. I'm getting the septic tank pumped tomorrow (I know, you're all jealous!) and might treat myself to a pedicure. We're celebrating fiance's b-day tomorrow night as he'll be away on his actual b-day. We'll have dinner, and then I'm taking him to see an illusionist show. He loves Penn and Teller, and the performers we are seeing work in a similar style. Shhh...it's a surprise. They only perform for 50 people at a time and it's in an old mansion. We are supposed to dress semi-formally. and they serve drinks. It should be fun! Tweety-Hope today goes well. I think I would feel very confined if I worked in the OR. I need windows and natural light for most of the day. Joe-Did you do a true fast with no food and water, or are you doing intermittent fasting? Nel-Sorry yo're dreading going back to work this weekend. Look back at what you posted...your typo made me smile. I didn't know your interests extended to chickens!! Hope all have a good day!

    I do ok most of the time with time release melatonin. I won't stay asleep with the regular stuff. The stories about Ambien scare me a bit. I'd probably be the person who ate everything in the refrigerator while asleep. But, you gotta do what you gotta do to get some sleep!

    Presidential Election 2020

    Again, I don't think he is a sexual predator. He may just be an overenthusiastic, clueless man who doesn't understand that his actions are not appropriate. I'm not giving him a pass, I just don't think there was ill intent. I could be wrong, of course, but I don't put him in the same league as Roy Moore, Bill Clinton, or even Trump.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I have mixed feelings about the alleged creepiness of Joe Biden. I really like him and wish he had run in 2016. He is a bit too touchy-feely for my taste, but I don't think it's sexual in nature. I think he is a genuinely warm person who is affectionate, which is not always appropriate. He'll get my vote if he's the name on the ballot in 2020, but I will support whichever candidate the Democrats put forth. I'm trying to learn more about those who have declared candidacy, and observing to see how things shake out.
