Wilson is a dead ringer for Kiera in looks and work ethic. Meanwhile, my couch potatoes are waiting for their first unemployment check.
We are living in interesting times, as the curse/saying goes. Because of my work with healthcare, I am probably more aware than average of where we are and where we’re headed with COVID-19.
The following chart shows where the world is on March 23rd. Today, the US has 42,484 cases. Yesterday, there were 26,900. Do the math. The exponential horse is out of the barn.
I don’t scare easily. […]
In my non-existent free time, I like to play the piano. And I like to listen to others play, for inspiration.
I think this guy is ridiculously talented.
As I was thinking that I wished I had half his energy, I noticed the first comment.
So. Life in the very slow lane. What does that look like?
Graidy is 18ish, Finn is 15 and Wink is 12. All are still going strong-ish.
But all now have heart problems. And Finn’s about to go get nuked with a radioactive shot to the tune of $3k to kill a benign tumor that’s making him hyperthyroid.
I know. It’s nuts. But I’m pathological. I can’t not do it, because Finn isn’t ready to go yet. These animals have been together all of their lives. They are their own family.
They move as one unit. Wherever I go, they all go.
So we have dog beds in every room because their old bones have a hard […]
So it seems that tapping 2 maple trees gives us just enough syrup to get through until the next maple tap.
But I knew as soon as my family got a taste of this, I’d have to be making more. So, along with their annual garlic allotment, I’ll be adding 2 more trees into maple production for this year.
Though, at the moment, with daytime temps in the minus digits, it’s looking like we’re still a few weeks away. It’ll be a race to the finish.
Speaking of which, if you haven’t read this book, it will change the way you think about trees. And […]
It’s hard to listen to the news without being aware of leaders with rampant egos running amuck. I think this sums up a significant part of the problem:
The ego is set up to
Defend and protect
one’s fabricated identity,
and attack anyone
who would question the authenticity
of this fabrication.
It’s tiring. All this puffing up and positioning. And constant lying. It’s shocking that more people don’t see through it.
“Us” against “Them” can never make lasting progress or achieve any kind of real resolution. Only “We “can do that.
Aren’t you tired of the slamming see-saw? I know I am.
