  1. Ted-Thanks for letting us know about Nel. I just messaged her. I know her heart must be heavy today.
  2. Good morning- It's still cold and rainy, but the skies will clear later today and tomorrow is set to be beautiful. I'm currently doing my once a month Saturday morning shift. I've only had 1 patient show up. I had several cancellations yesterday and a couple of perpetual no-showers. I have written discharge letters to the no-shows and made their charts inactive. Enough already. Ted-I wish your back was improving faster. I hope it's ok for your Catskills hike. Joe- I like pomegranate everything. I hope you have an enjoyable day. Take care, all.

    Morning- I had a nice day off yesterday for Yom Kippur. I went to synagogue in the AM and then took a nice nap. It was cool and rainy, so a nap was the perfect activity! Fiance's DD came over for dinner. It was nice to spend some time with her. I meant to go to the gym this morning, but it's still cold and rainy. That killed any desire I had to go out before work. Meh. I have some weights at home and I'll climb the 5 flights of stairs at work a few times during lunch. That's better than nothing. I'm also going to start intermittent fasting. For me, that means skipping breakfast, which I don't like anyway, and only eating from noon until 8. I'll keep on my low carb regimen as well. We'll see if I can stick to that. Hope all are well. Have a good day.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    "Great and Unmatched Wisdom", my Aunt Fanny. He is clearly decompensating. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-syria-security-turkey-usa/trump-threatens-to-obliterate-turkish-economy-over-syria-incursion-plan-idUSKBN1WL0IS
  5. Morning- I'm off today, with absolutely no plans. I will either walk or go to the gym in a bit, but I am kind of at loose ends. Usually I'm running around crazy on my day off. I should enjoy the down time, maybe sit on the deck and read a good book. Pretty soon it will be too cold to do that. We have frost warnings for tonight. I guess I should put my garden to bed for the winter. That will give me something to do. Ted!! You've been missed! I'm glad all is well with you and Amy. Happy Anniversary to you both. Don't be a stranger, ok? Tweety-Enjoy your day off. Enjoy your "Fall". Joe-I hope J is feeling better tonight and you can get together. Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Morning, Joe and all who follow- I think today is going to be our last warm day. It's in the mid 70s with high humidity. The rest of the week will be in the 50s. Meh. I guess it will be time put the flip flops away. Work has been very busy. I'm seeing a lot of sick teachers, now that school is back and the little darlings are spreading their germs everywhere. Not much else going on.

    Questioning Elizabeth Warren

    With all due respect, you don't just write a post. You bombard us with numerous videos over and over, yet you never state what is important to you or what you are looking for in a candidate. That's your prerogative, but it is difficult to filter though the negativity. Frankly, I don't watch any of those videos. They seem like a bit of a smear campaign to me. No candidate is perfect. Most are far from perfect. Right now Democrats and those who dislike what our country has become under Trump need to focus on one thing-nominating a candidate who can win the 2020 election and removing him from office. Perhaps in 2024 we can get back to ideals and dissecting all the candidates, but to me, that is secondary right now. I'm not interested in the minutiae and nit picking of every Democratic candidate.

    Questioning Elizabeth Warren

    https://time.com/5607034/warren-plan-small-business-equity/ This is a plan she has discussed that would help minorities. It took me less than 5 seconds to find it via Google.

    Questioning Elizabeth Warren

    I could not agree more. There's nothing but accusations and a whole bunch of Youtube videos.

    Sunday 9/29

    Morning- I'm up early to get the brisket in the oven for tomorrow's dinner. It takes about 5 hours to bake, and is always better made the day before. We had a nice dinner out last night. We've revived the Envelope Dinners, where we each picked 5 restaurants within an hours drive that we haven't tried before, and stick the names in envelopes and pick one when we want to go to dinner. We drew a nice farm to table bistro in Providence, RI for last night and it was wonderful, and very reasonably priced. Today I will be getting most of the cooking done for Rosh Hashanah dinner tomorrow. The brisket is in the oven, and I will make the soup later. Hope all are enjoying their weekends!

    Stars-Farawyn is active on Facebook, and is doing fine! I'll tell her you were asking about her.

    Good morning- The sleep thing is still up and down. I'm using an app on my phone that can play different calming sounds. I set it for 20 minutes when I go to bed, and it seems to be helping. I'm trying to stay off my laptop at night, but having trouble giving up the Kindle before bed. I think the blue light blocking glasses do help. When did getting sleep become so complicated?? Hope you have a nice dinner tonight, Joe. I have to go back and read the last couple of days' posts. Hope all have a good day.

    A lot, apparently.

    The Congressional Committee Hearings

    Here is a good, comprehensive overview of what's going on from a source that is considered by most to be unbiased. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-whistleblower/whistleblower-complaint-describes-white-house-cover-up-on-trump-ukraine-scandal-idUSKBN1WB0E5
