    So the Covington Catholic kid's lawyer, Lin Wood has officially filed a lawsuit against the Washington Post for $250 million.
    The amount Jeff Bezos paid for the newspaper.
    We will what happens.
    Supposedly, they are also suing Mr. Phillips.
    I look forward to seeing how this fight plays out.
    Mr. Wood was Herman Cain's lawyer, and Richard Jewell.

    I agree that education, environment and healthcare should be priorities for candidates challenging Trump.
    But childcare is a societal issue.
    If we agree that the population needs to stay at a certain level to be competitive economically, then childcare is a societal problem.
    Of course, we could simply up the number of immigrants, to make up for any population shortage.
    And of course, child poverty is a societal problem.
    I don't see a millennial baby boom on the horizon.
    These people are saddled with student loan debt, and can't afford housing.
    They are delaying marriage and homeownership.
    They aren't having kids in droves.
    But of course, like the tech I mentioned, some just don't think ahead.

    Good Gray Cold Afternoon to you all!
    Glad not to be up in the mountains, as THEY are getting or going to get a "Significant Ice-Event" and they ain't talkin' about Championship Ice Skating.
    S'posta be gray and cold through Friday.  
    Dogs get groomed Thursday AM, so Ozzie will once again have to be wearing his turquoise sweater. Pip just likes to be buried under a blanket with the tip of her nose showing.
    Hubby and Nannie went to get their hair done; I told Nannie, like a good little dgt-in-law should, that her hair looks very nice. Nannie started  squawking that "She cut it too short; there's no curl left in it. She was supposed to give me a perm. She's going away for two weeks, so I don't get my perm until then." (hubby adds, 'no, nannie, it's 4 weeks until you get your perm...') To which Nannie responds, "SQUAWK!GRIPE!GRUMBLE!SQUAWK!" 
    I often would LIKE to say, "If you don't like it, or she doesn't do what you think she should do, SAY SOMETHING TO HER BEFORE SHE STARTS!"  Yegods and little catfishes! But, y'know, if she spoke up ahead of time, what would she have to complain about? She said, about the 4 wk wait for a perm, "Well, that's just one more thing I'll have to worry about." [ok, nannie, let's make a LIST of ALL your worries!] This is the woman who, after she takes her evening wash, fixes and sprays her hair. She'll be going to bed within 2-3 hours, so what's the point? We don't give a flying-anything what her hair looks like between 7 PM and 10 PM. Hubby says she is trying to seduce the Sand Man. 
    I'm doing okay, no major pain. But I am constantly catching myself ... either I shouldn't have done some move just after I've already done it, or I am about to do something, but realize it is on my NO-NO list. I have to keep reminding myself, "Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD!"
    It's not that I am non-compliant, but I guess I am ...I am full of habitual movements, leaning, lurching, awkward bending, stretching to reach too far,  sitting down but turning around from the waist to the left or right to see something, picking up the (12 lb) dogs at times...  I am discouraged with myself because I am causing some aching and soreness with my unconscious and abrupt leaping up and all those other motions I make, lacking finesse. 
    I am trying to behave. I've decided that the only 'exercise' I can do is to stand up straight and adjust my feet-knees-hips-shoulders-head-chin...like I learned way-long-time-ago in a yoga class. Do you know, it is actually kind of tiring? When I think I've got it all lined up, I realize I have to readjust and readjust my adjusting! By the time two minutes has past, I'm shaky!  [Oh pitiful posture, seek thine ideal! And again! No. Wait...again!'] I will have terrifically strong thighs because I have to do deep knee bends to get things out of the clothes dryer or change the pup-pee-pads or pick up one of the 3,000 things I DROP every single day!
    So, Tweety, at work, take a bandaid, upon which you have written the word "NO!", and stick it across your lips. At home, when you pick up your ringing phone, ( I have done this myself, many times, truly and for real!) answer it by saying, "NO!" 
    Joe, that insurance co. work might be the very thing for you. Whether it is or not, you have some time before you have to say yes to any job offer. Like others have said here, it is good to be cautious.
    *Sidebar re: the word CAUTION. An uncle, when a teen, wrecked more than his share of cars. His step-dad said to him, "You need to be more cautious!"  To which my uncle replied, "Who could be more cautioner than I?"
    Ted, It makes me smile to think of your core being containing all that MUSIC-MUSIC-MUSIC! (Did that sound like Ethel Merman just then?) I'm sorry that sometimes it requires a pick-axe and mining tools to get the compositions out! I'm sure, though, that Amy's head shots came out GREAT. She is, I think, beautiful and photogenic. How'd she end up with you? Does she have really bad vision? 😝  Oops! Sorry! Baaaaad joke!  I didn't mean it, HONEST! Your link to Boogie Nights made me want to break out my Bee-Gees CD and ... well, can't dance right now, so I left it in its case. Phooey.
    BCg, Glad to hear your dgt is doing better. Had something similar to that once. It woke me up at 3 AM when I took a deep breath, it HURT like I was being stabbed mid-back; I thought my kidney was on it's way to being severely deceased. They did a nuclear x-ray of my lungs, would not let me move at all until they had a diagnosis, they were thinking I might have a blood-clot. I didn't. It was kind of interesting to see my nuclear-green- sparkled lungs moving with each breath. They said, "Pleurisy" and sent me home with the prednisone.

    I just engaged in a fun interactive project on the NY Times web site.
    It asks you which words you use, and how you pronounce words, to determine where in England or Ireland you are from.
    Mine pointed to southern Ireland, West Coast, from Galway to Killarney.
    Fun exercise.
    My last name is English, but my ancestors on father's side came from Ireland.

    Good morning, all.
    Really hope you don't get called in, Tweety.
    An 18 to one ratio for techs? That is ridiculous. Our ratio can get up to 14 to one.
    There was no way, I would have left the tech alone to deal with river of poop, even though it put me behind, and two patients had to wait a long time for either one of us to toilet them.
    Staffing, staffing, staffing.
    It is partly sunny here today. I will take any glimpse of sunshine I can get.
    Joe, I don't understand. I thought your supervisor helped you to correct the things the picky auditor didn't like. Was it not good enough?
    I say, shoot for the moon with job applications. If you are offered a position, you don't have to accept it, and you will gain a sense of what is available.
    Hope step-mom is improving, herring.
    Hope your daughter is feeling better, BC.
    Maybe you should hire someone to do marketing, Dianah? You guys are very, very, good, so you should concentrate on making music.
    Ted, do you mind if I enjoy the link you meant for Tweety? 😉
    Hope all have a good day.

    And we should all know that drag queen, doesn't equal pedophile.
    Just like Catholic priest, doesn't equal moral citizen.
    A robust First Amendment means we all have the right to be offended.
    The saddest part of the story I highlighted, is just how far the newspaper mentioned has fallen.
    It went from muckraker, to muck producer.
    Very sad.

    You know, I have never understood this economic equation.
    How is outside childcare so expensive, yet childcare workers, paid so little?
    Where is the money going?
    My family was very fortunate in that my grandmother and aunts provided childcare while my parents worked.
    I guess that is the beauty of nearby, extended family.
    Of course, this argument goes back to social welfare.
    If we look at Scandinavia, with some of the world's highest taxes, highest happy populations and highest social welfare programs, we can see the benefit to subsidized childcare.

    Or maybe, both men and women should give actual thought to having children.
    The people that I know, myself included, who are childless, actually gave thought, to what it meant to be a parent.
    And we rejected parenthood.
    Most of the people I know with children, actually gave little thought to the process.
    The other night, a 25-year-old tech on my unit stated she was trying to get pregnant.
    I said: Haven't you had the boyfriend for three weeks? Shouldn't you know this guy a bit better before having a child with him?
    Her response: We've known each other longer than that. We just got together three weeks ago. Anyways, I'm not worried about it.
    I said: Oh.
    Her boyfriend is a 39-year-old, unemployed landscaper, who let's her buy him $60 Converse sneakers. And who is essentially living with her, in the apartment she still shares with another ex boyfriend.
    Yes, people need to THINK before reproducing.
