Baseball World Series season again. I liked baseball as a kid and I would have wanted to play no matter how feminine I appeared to be. It required many skills and it wasn't violent. But there was very little choice in fashion or equipment. I could only dream of something as fabulous as being the winning pitcher who wears a lavender baseball glove. —Davie

Good morning, all! Raining here and the dogs jumped out of bed at 3:45!! Ugh. Quick walk and fed them - drinking coffee now and catching up here and on the news of the world.

 

Looking forward to tomorrow's Halloween Zoom get-together. 

 

Be safe and remember to look for the goodness in this beautiful day we've been given.

A frosty and cold morning this am, 9 degrees. Actually glad I don't have to go out in it. Found out that my friend at my former work. Left also. She told me that the store manager had sexually harassed her. I have suspected that he has done this to some female employees. He had stated when he first started that he had slept with all of the women he worked with.

 

I did what any friend would have done, I reported his arse. Not for my own satisfaction but to save other women from getting the same treatment.  So since Friday they have been down to 2 delivery drivers. One unreliable and the other with health problems. down from a full crew of five drivers. I hope they lose some professional customers because of it. 

 

Had the middle son and his family -1 over Friday and Sat. The two youngest grandsons went trick or treating in our annual downtown spooktactular. My 2nd oldest grandson didn't want to come. (and have fun) OH, well his loss.

 

Still waiting on our oldest to come down for a visit. But not holding my breath. I think that my daughter in law is mostly to blame. Oh, well life goes merrily along.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

Good morning everyone,

 

@KymmieL's fence-o-meter has let Winter slip down as far south as central Indiana. We have snow flurries passing through this evening, and tomorrow night's wind chill for the trick-or-treat hours will be in the twenties. 

 

Hugs,

Those days... Coffee.jpg

Yesterday was super busy, finishing up the last of the garden tasks.  Picked the final tomatoes and peppers, and pulled up the last run of beets, turnips, and rutabagas.  It was raining the whole time, so I got really cold and really wet.  Some of those crops can take temperatures as low as 28, and I left them in until the very last minute.  But last night it really FROZE. 

 

This morning I went out with some of the kids to pick persimmons.  Not many people outside the South know what they are, and even fewer like them.  Its a wild tree, and we have several.  There's an old joke about giving somebody a green persimmon....they taste terrible!  They get sweet after a frost, and probably best after a light freeze.  So, today was the day.  We got a good harvest.  The fresh fruit doesn't keep well, so we use it immediately in desserts and fruit salad.  I've got persimmon bread and persimmon muffins in the oven right now, and I'll be spending the afternoon cutting the rest into slices for drying as snacks.

Well depression has lessened up some now it's mostly just Gender Dysphoria depression. I had another medication adjustment. Hopefully that part of my depression won't come back. It's hard enough to have Gender Dysphoria.

Good morning!  Speaking of coffee, I opened a new bag of Peets coffee this morning.  There are many scents that are wonderful, and a newly opened bag of coffee is certainly one of them.  😋

I agree with you Carolyn,

 

When I worked in the chemical tank truck industry. We had to clean the tanks ridding them of very disgusting or strong chemical odors. One of the trick we would use to remove/cover the chemical odor was to brew/steam coarse ground coffee beans catching the drippings into a stainless steel (SS) bucket. We would suspend a couple of shop towels filled with said coffee beans from the handle of the SS bucket. Hang that SS bucket into the dome lid area of the chemical tanker closing the lid. Then introduce saturated steam to the front clean-out port, leaving it to steam for an hour or so depending on the odor we were trying to overcome. Once the barrel of the tank was up to 150°F we would shut of the steam, open the dome lid and place a warm air blower into the tank, cooling it down below 90°F and send it on its way. The visual inspection would pass with flying colors and the loader/operator would comment on how well we cleaned the tank. To this day, I use a sock filled with a cup of dry coffee grounds, to freshen up our dryer in the laundry room. 

 

Coffee... It's not just a morning drink. It's a solution.

Good morning everyone,

 

Today is starting out Sunny and in the mid twenties. The bird feeders are busy, the cats and I are entertained.

Coffee is HOT, Black, and Strong. Not quite Cheech and Chong strong, as @Ashley0616 points out... That's funny.

 

Stay safe tonight, and happy Halloween

So cold this morning.   I definitely did not want to get out of my warm nest, and it seemed to take the fire a long time to heat up the house.  It wasn't that bad yesterday, or we might have had the stoves going last night already. 

 

My arctic GF doesn't notice these things...she's in her element.   Actually barefoot in the frosty yard this morning!  The cats agree with me, though...none of us have moved more than 4 feet from the fire yet.

I love the fall/winter. No bugs, don't have to cut grass, pumpkin spice lates, boots, sweater dresses, leggings and the only thing I hate about it is people get sick easier.

Low 30s this morning, fireplaces on and the sweet aroma of coffee in the air. A great way to ease into the day!

Good morning everyone,

 

It was a relatively slow Halloween Night in our neighborhood. The coldest weather since 1993 coupled with snow flurries, kept the youngest of kids in for the night. 
 

I hope everyone has a wonderful November 1st.

      And incompetence.   Not many people would give a rat's @$$ about us if they didn't keep stirring this crap up.   So all this explodes and then what?  A huge pile of bodies - and for what? Perhaps that will satisfy the blood lust.  But then no… it might take a few more piles.  Meh, it won't be my problem anymore.

      I don't think people realize how dangerous this man is. Yeah, he has a vendetta against us.  His trans-daughter dissed him.  Then his ex dated Chelsea Manning.  He made "cis" an official slur out of spite. He is an authoritarian, and he interfered in the Ukraine war - because he could.  Our government has let themselves become dependent on his satellites  and rockets. His megalomania dwarfs DJT's. Just my opinion of course.

      The Fathers provided for a way to update the constitution, and it has been used in the past.  They weren't as stupid as some of their supposed modern followers.  As soon as it was passed, they added the "Bill of Rights."

      @Ashley0616Hii : P I hope it works better out this time. Imho I think taking it very slow and without expectations works best. or like thinking about any outcome and dont expecting a specific one. Maybe you learn more about her and she is just not like you thought. Maybe I am just super slow and picky Idk but everytime I was going fast or let me being rushed it failed miserably.

      As an engineer I was invited to a climate change conference decades ago. They had a very nice model posted covering them last 130,000 years showing a gradual warming since the end of the last ice age and a small spike starting about the beginning of the industrial revolution. They were absolutely correct in their data, we are experiencing climate change and things will get grim here shortly (relatively speaking).    The data missing in the presentation were ice core samples dating back about 400,000 years showing a natural cycle that earth has been experiencing for about 4 billion years. The last ice age showed data that almost mimics identical to our present data, and humans were just emerging and still cave dwellers.    Not to say that humans are not effecting climate, even if a coyote pees on a bush in the desert the micro environment changes. We should be respectful to our planet.    But there is NO amount of legislation that will STOP climate change. It's going to happen no matter what. Rather than spending trillions of dollars trying to STOP climate change perhaps we should be trying to figure out how to survive the inevitable.    Many engineers at the conference came onboard with me, but needless to say we were never invited to attend the meetings after than. It just didn't fit the agenda of the presenters.

      You can look at it this way: the elected officials are more focused on obtaining and staying in power than passing anything. Given that the most recently passed amendment was regarding legislative compensation and that was proposed in 1789 says much about troublesome amending it can be. Very little is written into the Constitution, the "unalienable rights" have been left to exist in statutes and code. Dithering life in a complex modern times to "micromanaging" certain things, such as gas stoves, comes down to the live and let live policy--does the existence of something harm others more than the personal liability one maintains by owning something. One could say they fall into the same category as smoking; it's not just the smoker harming themself. I'm not advocating the elimination of natural gas stoves, I have only read cursorily about it, but one must think past the individual when it comes to laws of the land.   As for what JD Vance stands for, did stand for, now stands for? is a question. I know little about him, other than his stance on marriage. His proposals would allow marriages to endure domestic violence because of the "sanctity" of marriage within a subset of a religion he maintains. He's willing to maritally hot box Americans, to death in some cases, simply because of his religious values. Sure, many share similar values, but not everyone--and definitely not a majority. Also, he's "changed his views" on a Trump presidency because it's politically expedient for him to acquire power. Going from being a "Never Trumper" to signing up to be his VP displays a type of moral bankruptcy I cannot really fathom.

      Strange enough my Facebook account was permanently closed due to "inciting hate and violence" when I used to post President Reagan video speeches a lot. 🤔
