Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Thanks, gang! On a day of not feeling quite right, great to have you all as steady, reliable friends. I have just had many nights of sketchy sleep, last night nary a wink! So, after one of those nights, I can fall asleep so easily in the afternoon. Does anyone else have an up at night, zonk in the d...

Re: Captured Moments (Photography)

Oh yes, a Starling after a bath! They are beautiful, their feathers become iridescent, just like a puddle with an oil skim!!!!! And both are equally irritating! Oh well, at least we are too cold for Kudzu! The south is ravaged by Kudzu, it grows on every tree, fence, telephone pole and it grows a fo...

Yawning is a misdemeanor! Only a fine! Over here across the pond! Not eating meat is a Federal Offense! Ventilators! Pooh! Masks! Piff! Social Distancing! So yesterday! Get out there on the beach with a Bucket of Chicken, a Tupperware Jumbo container of pork chops, and don't forget to stop at the St...

Re: General Support and Chat

SoberB, Oh for sure, here in the US too! Mental health and addiction problems are not for the poor here, either. I was able to go to both of the rehabs because I had Medicare, which paid for most of the 5=7 day fees. There was billing that came later for the residual, which I paid for in one of the ...

Re: Captured Moments (Photography)

Nice pictures, Wilson! I hated Starlings, too! I had bird feeders when I lived out on the Plains, I had such lovely birds until Spring. Then the big, old, mean Starlings would show up and for the summer and I would have to take my feeders down. They were such a menace, just so many of them, freeload...

Guess it is normal to feel a bit Crazy!

Hello, :\: Is everyone still at home? I am, but I am used to that for sure! I have been having massively weird dreams, still! But, I guess that is normal, too! I feel guilt that my brain can't process that many, many people die each day, but since I am not in the thick of it, I can't really process ...

Hello Boris! :\: You and I met way back in 2011 on BE, but I was BlackJack back then! Glad that you have come back to BE in your time of need, I try to get back in now and then and have really been grateful for the COVID-19 thread!

Re: COVID-19 Support & Chat

Free Flow, I hear you about our leaders who denied the pandemic and called it a Hoax! An inconsequential Hoax that has, as of today, killed 100,000 souls worldwide! And then asking the old folks to go to work, get the Hoax and give it up for the economy! Now the Orange One is just itching to send pe...

Welcome Lou24 I hope you had success with your dad and convincing him to choose sobriety! Ultimatums sometimes work, sometimes not.

Re: COVID-19 Support & Chat

Persisting is how we are all coping, I guess. Frayed nerves, sad thoughts, knowing that the virus respects no one and nothing, we are all sitting ducks to a tiny organism that can only be seen under an electron microscope! Being vulnerable to an unseen enemy is so very hard! The world is ajar, we ar...
