Elizabeth, they're being cautious because they don't know who you are when on the phone.  Better to err on the safe side.

Sun shining here, roads cleared.

Wife is out in my truck, her car is in the shop. nothing major.

 

I've been working on my look, and btw, I don't have a hole in my throat, just sagging skin thank goodness.

(picture next door here)

 

Hippa laws. When I was teaching carpentry at the job corps, the center nurse came to me

and said she had a new student that wants my course, she said do not let him take your class.

My course involved power saws, and cutting and such.

Do to hippa laws all she could say was, and this is true, screw the law for a minute, the kid has aids.

So this kid comes to my shop and I lay all these blue prints and books on osha and math, and such.

I tell the kid it will take a year of classroom before the shop, (I lied about that to him)

He didn't take my class.

@Willow This is a Comfort Glow QDE 1320. Remote control also. Tipping safety switch, 3 infrared quartz bulbs

and fan driven. It is one of the best little heaters I've ever owned.

Cost $120.00, you've seen the pictures of my office, this little jewel will fry you out.

Good morning all.  Or rather good afternoon here.  I'm on my third cup of coffee before I head out to work.  I only have to work two hours today so it's not so bad.  We've had pesky on - off snow showers all morning.  It's not really sticking though so that's not too bad.

A big part of my problem is I only have 30 amps to spread between the heater, the refrigerator, the VERY important coffee pot and everything else that uses AC.  The tiny propane heater at 700 btu will roast you.  When I got up the electric heater was cranking but the place was only 60.  I turned on the propane and it was 72 in no time.  It is rated for indoor use.  Has all the tip over shut offs and a CO detector shutoff.  But I am leery to run it when I’m asleep.  Also since it is either on or off it would be a sauna in here.  
 

did our shopping today.  Came back with extra stuff.  (Shouldn’t shop on an empty stomach). Then we had to find places to put it all.  Oops!

 

The boat actually has a lot of storage.  Unfortunately a lot of it is taken with things that aren’t food.  One whole side is an 80 gallon water tank. The seat in front of the sail locker is taken up with an air conditioner. Under the third seat is full of tools and spare parts.  That would normally have minimal tools and parts but be full of canned food.  There is always the bilge but I’m still locating and fixing water leaking into the bilge.

 

speaking of fixing, I’ve got some indoor work to do.  I’ll check back later.

I'm kinda partial to the oil filled radiator ones. Don't have to worry much about someone dropping clothes too close to it. Takes a long time to heat up a room, but it stays warm real well.

Good afternoon! The coffee was almost as good as sleeping in my own bed after 4 days of traveling. Lol. And I must admit I have done nothing but sit on the couch and binge NCIS. I’ll get more active later… tomorrow.

Hi, I found and fixed another water leak.  It’s all been at joints between hoses and fixtures. Loose clamps. Stuff like that. I also installed a medicine cabinet over the sink in the head.  I did it for the mirror but there other advantages.  
 

not too happy with our local weatherman.  He seems to be zeroing in on ,

”article temperatures.” and ice storm Friday and Saturday.  I think he needs to go back to weather school and learn how to not predict winter weather for here.

An air conditioner?  On a sailboat.  Wow.

 

For weather I like Weather Underground since it links to the National Weather Service but also shows actual weather as reported on nearby local home weather stations.

Yes, an air conditioner.  It uses water, not air as a heat transfer median. Why? Well it gets hot in the south and you can’t sail everyday.  So when you are at anchor or tied up to a dock, rather than sweltering it’s nice to have an air conditioner.  I actually took it off another sail boat that I was salvaging.  Since it uses water, it’s a lot more efficient than your typical home ac.

One of the only professions  where you can be wrong half the time and still keep your job. Most anymore just read the computer, don't really do any meteorology.

I can imagine that it works like a radiator or chiller. It either runs water through it or over it with a fan blowing air past it to cool you. If the water your boat is in is clean enough, you could use it. Doesn't it keep at a pretty constant temp?

Good morning ya’ll. I volunteered to work my scheduled day off yesterday. The Mail Gawds conspired to make it the heaviest mail and parcel volume day we’ve ever seen. I worked a measly 13 hours. Think of the paycheck, right?

Yes it is. The only other profession where you can have an even lower winning percentage is left handed starting pitching.

Good morning everyone 

 

couple last things about the boat ac, water coming in goes through a strainer so it doesn’t clog anything.  It’s drawn in by a pump Then it acts essentially like a radiator (really a heat exchange) and finally exits the boat above the waterline.  It uses Freon with a compressor, gets cooled then expands in the air stream. A blower takes in the air at the unit and after chilling discharges it wherever you duct it too..   sorry if I mansplained.  I’m told I do that.

 

today is supposed to be the nice day of the week then down hill from here.  Winter storm watch has been issued. 🤬.   I am praying that no news is good news.

 

not much else to share unless you want to help with laundry.

Nothing new to report about my partner. I thought I posted something earlier but I don't see it. Maybe I forgot to hit submit. Probably for the better. I had to vent a little. I am losing faith in doctors being honest. Today I was told that her liver started working a little. That's nice, why didn't anyone tell me that it wasn't working? It was the same way I found out about her kidneys. They started working, a little bit. Totally after the fact.

@Elizabeth Star thank you for the update.  We are all with you in spirit and can feel your pain on some level.  I’ll keep praying for you and your partner.

 

sorry the doctors haven’t kept you fully informed,  I’ve had that experience too and it’s very upsetting.

 

sending hugs and love to you

My wife constantly getting that with her doctors. Are they all afraid that you can't take the bad news? Personally, I would rather know so I can prepare or just maybe come up with a fix.❤️

After this sinks in for a little while, I find that it's really not funny. There's really nothing funny about being "trans".

Mostly pain for us, and anyone around us. I guess some people make light of this so they don't cry. How many times have I made fun of gays and trans when I was crying about it inside. I don't like to even think about it.

As someone who does it, I get using dark humour as a coping mechanism, though I've only ever seen lists like those in an anti-trans context. There's a YouTuber called "One topic at a time" who looks at things like this in a light hearted and wholesome way. They usually lift my mood by the end of their videos. 🙂

      This is from the second article: "Last night, unknown individuals vandalized at least two substations in Moore County with criminal intent. Motive for this crime remains unknown.   From this, it appears that the local authorities have no idea as to who did this or why, despite interviewing a local conservative, and apparently an evangelical Christian, activist. Ms. Caraballo's conclusions are simply a matter of ill considered opinion not supported by fact. Presently, there is no evidence connecting "fascists" to this act (although I suspect othe4rwise). Nor is this an example of "terrorism." Rather, it is a criminal act of the basest sort.   Additionally, as a practicing Presbyterian (someday I may get it right) minister, I can state categorically that most denominations including the Episcopalians, Lutherans, Nazarenes, Methodists etc., do NOT condone this sort of hateful stuff. It's antithetical to everything Christ taught. It's too easy to condemn an entire faith for the actions of a few; this includes Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and countless others. Perhaps it's time to let the investigation run its course before we start rushing to judgment.   And for the record--God, by whatever name or faith--doesn't provide gunmen to shoot power stations or anything else. Especially in Christianity. Let us remember that one of Jesus' titles is "Prince of Peace."
    • VickySGV
      Sooo-- a deity is now providing gun men to shoot out power installations on demand??  I would like to hear what happens when that is used as a defense in court.  Actually it has been used before to no benefit of the accused person.   NOTE, I am a practicing Episcopalian Church member.

      https://www.thedailybeast.com/power-outage-in-moore-county-north-carolina-caused-by-vandalism   “I told them that God works in mysterious ways and is responsible for the outage. I used the opportunity to tell them about the immoral drag show and the blasphemies screamed by its supporters. I told them God is chastising Moore County, thanked them for coming and wished them a good night. Thankful for the LEOs service, as always.”   Two hours earlier, Rainey had posted the message: “The power is out in Moore County and I know why.” And around the same time, she posted a picture of the Sunrise Theater, which was putting on the sold-out drag show, with the caption “God will not be mocked.”     Some other reports don't mention the Drag Show. https://www.fayobserver.com/story/news/crime/2022/12/04/moore-county-power-outage-investigated-as-vandalism/69699328007/   Twitter thread on it.

      That's pretty much how I am running with HRT changes too.  I am loving myself & life for the first time since the onset of puberty, so acceptance and positivity (present and future) is really easy for me.
    • Sally Stone
      Raquel, as Jackie says, it depends on what specifically you are looking for.  However, a first meet doesn't necessarily mean the encounter has to be one-on-one.  If your aim is to look for acceptance, that can be achieved easily by interacting with other people in a public setting.  My favorite activity is shopping, followed closely by dining out and both of these afford me the opportunity to meet others without the pressure or potential danger of a one-on-one encounter with someone you have never met before.     Just last weekend I was shopping in a department store when a woman walked up to me to compliment me on the boots I was wearing.  She was a complete stranger, but her compliment opened the door to a much more intimate and extended conversation.  Interactions like this one have always helped to validate my feminine expression.     If you go this way, my best recommendation is to be proactive by reaching out to others instead of waiting for someone to approach you.  Based on my experience the social butterfly tends to garner the most interaction.

      There was a Medical paper presented at the 2011 WPATH conference where the WPATH Standards Of Care V. 7 was ratified. (I was there) The paper by Walter Bockter MD relied on prior studies and his team's research regarding the age at which children discover their principal and gender identities both Cis and Trans.  A Cis child knows their identity by then as well.  A child will recognize their own face at two years old, and absolutely recognize faces of close  family members just a little after that.  The ages are younger than most people give them credit for.   At 74 years old I often have a helluva time making up my mind on what I want for breakfast and family arguments from raising 3 (now almost 50 year old) children puts the breakfast thing into another category.  😁

      I feel for any who find medical treatment denied.  In many cases as post orchiectomy some hormone therapy is critical for life as hormones of either type are critical for the body to function.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Yea, Christmas lights are up to break. I took the first step to step down at work. Tired of just being a body, nobody respects, tired of not seeing my family, and getting any work done around the house. Sent an Email to our district manager outlining why I want to. Don't expect to hear anything till tomorrow.   Anywho open today.   Hugs to all   Kymmie
    • Charlize
      As hormones and presentation changed i definitely saw a change in interactions.  Men became a bit guarded when we spoke. There was certainly a bit of sexual tension.  I unfortunately also discover male dismissal of my opinions.  While speaking about my own paintings at an exhibit i was more or less pushed to the side by two men who seemingly knew more than the painter. Joining the sisterhood took time but i am often more comfortable with women and feel a support which is much different than men ever offered.   having had similar issues i have been using a topical E for quite some time now.  The risks this way are low.  After surgery i no longer produced T and E is actually safer under medical supervision.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sunday morning, the sun is shining brightly as it should, my coffee is in hand and I’m talking to my friends.  It was comfortably warm yesterday, up and down for the remainder of the week.  December is starting out to be more typical for this area than November was.   I hope wherever you are you have a good day.   Hugs   Willow

      It is good to see the authorities actually pursuing these people. I don't know what they think is actually happening.  "Transitioning" for elementary school age kids pretty much consists of using a preferred name, and appropriate clothing. Even for adults, there are a lot of steps to go through before any surgeries.  And sometimes there are never surgeries.
