So why get a freakin Smart phone???You pay for the phone, and internet, and long distance etc. Because of the age of my car, I keep my cell phone in it, I use a land line. My cell is the next after flip phones, my keyboard slides out. Ya ca't hear, but you can always get a signal...lol
I need to get my brother a new one like that but I've been too lazy to look. I don't even know if they still make them. I hope they do.

Hang on. I started reading from where zi left off. How did I miss Cathie getting covid? I was wondering where you Cathie had disappeared to. I hope you ate better now.
I was just to sick to play on my phone from around the last few days of December. I felt guilty every day but I just couldn't. But I lived through it and I'm baacckk you poor people.😁

A while back I fired my cable company and bought Roku and antenna and have been pretty satisfied with my TV viewing. But the weather and atmospheric disruptions affect my reception.

I've gotten in the habit of watching several programs right in a row all evening long on the same channel. So I turned that channel on tonight and 'no signal'!! It's now been off for a couple hours. So I had to turn to local channels and this is the time of day all of them are broadcasting local news.

Being a troll who lives under a bridge, I'm unaware of what's been going on around me. I was amazed to see that over 400,000 people have died from covid, there was an attack on the White House and the National Guard is deployed and high winds have caused terrible fires in Northern California!

I was much happier not knowing these facts. It must be the wind and smoke causing my TV reception. Guess it's time to break out a book and turn off the TV.

Nagh. It’s usually cold, dark and wet under bridges. No food or drink. How would you know when the world ended?
For a balanced global look at things look for other “news” sources. France24, BBC World News, Al Jazeera International, German Deutsche World to name a few.

Did you hear about the massive eartquake?

Hey Mark,check out this YouTube video. It might give you some ideas.
Watch "Woodturning - The Coffee Spoons" on YouTube

The calm before the storm:) makes for crappy driving weather and I’ve got places to be all week long.. Jess has a follow up with her surgeon in Houston tomorrow and I think they are truly going to be shocked at all the progress she has made. Yesterday at therapy, she was able to bend her forearm up, flip her hand from palm to back and flex her fingers.. All these things come so easy to us but for her, it’s an Olympic marathon.. we are so pleased though. It’s a hell of a long way from the original forecast !!!

Go Jess!!!!
Go Jess!!!

Those are all great signs. When I came out of my coma. I couldn't lift or straighten out my right arm. I was so worried I would never have use of it again.
Tell Jess to keep the faith and I am rooting for her.

Had to double check the news & make sure no one stormed the WH tonight. Thanks for scaring me to death. Scary times, folks.

I sure will.. she’s pretty excited with her progress and yet still aware of the unfairness of it all.. it’s 2am here and I can’t sleep 😡 got to get up in a couple hours and head to Houston (4 hr drive) for a couple hours visit to hospital and then drive right back.. . But after that.... it’s over the hump for the week! Hope your pain has disappeared by now Ray!

He is ok!! Just common crud. We did a virtual Dr appointment and they agree that it’s not symptomatic of Covid... ( THANKFULLY) .. we got him so meds and he should be ok to return to school. He stayed home with Jess and I was able to get my hair done. I’ve had that appointment scheduled for over a month.. I’m pretty pleased with it! How’s your weather now?
Good to hear he's well but better safe than sorry.
Still raining here - should ease later though once Christoph has passed, then I think we have a few more settled days.

Good morning/afternoon all.
It's a big day for our US friends today! Hope it all passes without incident.
Nothing special happening here - just waiting for the rain to stop.
Lola is waiting by his door for room service but I've left his food outside to try to get him to stretch his legs.
It's a battle of wills which I suspect he will eventually win because he knows I'm a soft touch and wouldn't let him go wihout food.
Anyway hope you all have a good Weds.

Jason put Roku on my drive-in movie screen about 3 months ago. I have NOT watched a complete show yet. I have Netflix and HBO and all those stations for free. Waste of his money. I watch the 'regular' programming and movies...

Thanks Heather, I finally got out of bed in the wean hrs this morning and got in my recliner. Was able to get my arm above my heart. That helped relieve the pain immensely.
