I heard there is big floods in Australia.

There is an ape tribe known as 'The Tasman1 Ape Tribe'
Reports have stated the tribe is moving their nesting grounds to higher areas.

Donations of bananas are being accepted.

Why is that Valerie ? People are WASTING energy - that's costly...... It should not cost you more to live in the dark ;)
People have so much light in their home, people would be surprised on how much energy they waste, besides light only accounts for a fraction of your utility bill - most of the costs are heating in the winter and cooling in the summer, depending on where you live (in what country), I doubt that all those candle sticks and gas lanterns will cost you more than electricity :mrgreen:

Yes, it cost more to live in the dark. Lights of millions of homes do burn a lot of energy.
At this time of year, less energy is used. My electric and gas bill is always lowest in the
Spring and Summer. There are plenty of reasons for this, not just lights in a house. People
are not inside their houses as much in the Spring and Summer. Many grill outside. Many
are taking vacations. Many are camping. Many are simply staying outside more and longer,
whether it be mowing lawns, gardening, playing sports, etc.

Not every where but almost.

We call it 'Spring Forward Fall Back'. This is our reminder to set our clocks one hour ahead
in the Spring and to set our clocks one hour back in the Fall. DST stands for Daylight Saving Time
and relates to the 'Spring Forward'.

In the Fall Winter Months, it gets dark outside at 5 to 6 pm.

In the Spring Summer Months, it gets dark outside at 8 to 9 pm.

Right arm, not very sore now.

Sore throat gone - but I forgot, my sore throat might have been due to the scope I had
previously. A numbing agent was sprayed in my nose to numb my throat.

In the USA you are required to give your insurance info if you have insurance.
If you don't have insurance it is free.

When going in, you are to show them your drivers license and insurance card,
unless they already have your information in their system.

He was afraid of getting confused by the fever and did Fourier Transform calculation problems to clear his head during that time :lol: . Is the vaccine randomly assigned over in the US?

I guess the vaccine manufacturer has to do with the country location and availability.
I'm only guessing because I really don't know for sure how they decide what area gets
which vaccine supply,. Of course, at first there was only Pfizer and Moderna.

I had my first Pfizer (covid) vaccine today.

There was something so strange about it. It was at the hospital and people were
coming and going one after the other. Temp check, answer questions, fill out a
paper, go around, follow the floor x's, wait for an empty computer, go to computer,
woman asks more questions, answer questions, go around another line, listen to
someone relay info about the shot, move along the line, get papers about the vaccine,
go down another line, wait for an empty shot table, go to shot table, answer questions,
get a card with shot date, get shot in arm, go down another line, take a seat for 15
minutes, then leave.

Fun was had by all. :mrgreen:

Yes many HOA fees are well over $1,000 a month. Most of those are condo's along the
beach. I wouldn't want a condo on the beach anyway.

I lived in Florida so I am rather aware of what they offer in some areas. They have
senior living communities that are very nice. Many of those are small houses, duplex's,
mobile homes. These are a great option if you choose a community you like. The
thing about these is, the amenities for the most part are free. Generally there is a pool,
theater, recreation building, exercise/gym center, etc. Most of these communities you
must be at least 55 years of age or older. Most drive golf carts and are not far from
the beach. Most have transportation bus's that take people to their doctor appointments
and general health facilities nearby. I think they'd be a lot of fun. I know some of them
do charge optional fees and probably the fancier ones charge something monthly.

Moving is such a hassle but I am considering it.

Is stray so bad » Post #3

I was thinking just yesterday that ALL vets should dedicated at least 10% of their
time spaying and neutering strays. If all vets did that, it would be a huge aid in
reducing the dog/cat population.

I agree people should not buy from breeders or stores. Not all breeders are bad
of course. There are licensed breeders that are very caring.

My dog actually came from a breeder but my husband bought him from an a person
that decided she did not want him. It was a Christmas time and my husband ask me
what I wanted. I said I'd like to have a small dog. It was difficult to find due to the
holiday. We called shelters in the area, humane societies, and none were to be found.

I always say it was meant to be because I happen to be browsing online and I never
go to Craigs list but happen upon an ad there. It was posted that someone in my
area had a 6 month old Maltese for sale at $450. So my husband called and it turned
out they only lived ten miles away from us. She said her and her husband traveled
a lot and decided to sell the dog. They took $400 for him and we both loved him as
soon as we saw him.

Bo was whelped in May of 2013. He will be 8 years old this May. I wouldn't take a
trillion dollars for him. He weighed 4 pounds when we got him and now he weighs
a whopping 9 pounds. All he really wants to do is eat, drink, play, poop, and pee.....
just like me. :lol:

I never had the throat scope before.

IF you ever need to have it, it's not bad.

He sprayed numbing stuff in my nose that numbs the throat.

The good news, it was a 'false positive'. In other words, there is no spot in my throat.
(The Pet Scan had showed a spot in my throat)

I think the only way I could live 'down under' is if I was born there a hundred
years ago or my family was millionaires.

I don't fully agree with Biden's stimulus plan. I don't even know what all is in it.

I do know giving $1,400 to everyone under that set amount, is way too much.

For example I know someone that makes $50,000 a year. His home is paid for.
His wife works on and off whenever she feels like getting a job but she never
sticks with it. They don't pay rent. They own their own home and it is paid for.
They live in a rural area and they don't pay city tax's. Their property tax is low.
They don't pay for water. They own a well. They don't pay for trash pick up.
They take their trash to the county dump, it's free. About all they really have
to pay is their electric bill. Of course they have mobile phones, insurance, and
such. This Wednesday the government will deposit:

Husband : $1,400
Wife: $1,400
Child: $1,400
Child: $1,400
Child: $1,400
Child: $1,400

Thats $8,400.00 that will be deposited into their bank account.

They also will be receiving several thousand dollars back from their income tax filing.

Now you tell me, does that make sense? I mean take a moment and try to compute
that into your heads that millions of Americans will be receiving this third stimulus at
$1,400 each AND that many families will be receiving as much as the above and MORE.

In the real example above, he works. He has a job. He has not been unemployed BUT
even if he had, he would have received very good and very extended unemployment checks.
