      It’s only July and I’m already sick of rain

    • swanspirit says:

      I am hoping that by the time it gets to us, Denise, it’s just a bit of rain and wind!

      I’ve been thinking of all the TCHers and keeping my prayers up for you all! 💕🙏🏼💕

    • elliesmom says:

      I’m under a tropical storm warning for most of the rest of the morning, but I think we may have seen the worst of it, at least for now, overnight. The thunder was loud enough to wake me up and sustained enough to make it hard to get back to sleep. The center of the storm is still 800 miles away, but we aren’t supposed to, at least on its current track, get a direct hit. The warning ends around noon, and then we go back to a watch until tomorrow night. There must have been a lot of rain overnight because I left my empty mop bucket on the deck, and it’s completely full.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Well Elsa has at least stuck very close to the predicted path and does not appear to want to wander about and do fancy ice skating patterns. so let’s hope she picks up speed and disappears off the radar ASAP. I am sure she has a few younger siblings just waiting for their chance to make meteorological history. May they all fail.

    Trump Country. Give me a break!

    • Mothy67 says:

      I am even more sceptical now than I was before. I’m proudly donning my tinfoil. A year and a half in and they are still coming up with new weekly side effects of the bug. Last week was disappearing brain matter. This week erectile dysfunction. Give me a break. Remember when they intimated you could get it from smelling #2 ( not harris) in public bathrooms.
      I feel like I should be on a tween variant team. Like Jacob and Edward. Everyday it feels like the talking heads are cheering on the Peruvian or Indian strain. Swear they want this to never end.
      I’d love to know how many healthy people/kids under 25 died vis-a-vis how many innoculated perished or suffered severe side effects.

      • lateblum says:

        I’m with you, Mothy. Every morning, it feels like a rush to find yet another C19 catastrophe. If Delta variant isn’t bad enough, we now have the Peruvian strain which will surely kill me unless another, more virulent strain should appear. We are being told it is futile without the
        vaccine – we are all dead. And the very next announcement on the news is that yet another city or event (like Lollapalooza) is opening. And don’t forget to take your mask and socially distant because that’s all that is needed AFTER you get the vax.
        If it is so bloody dangerous, why aren’t they locking us all up in our homes again?!? Why are they “opening up” everything?!?
        They are trying to keep everyone off-balance. It makes it so much easier to control us.

        • elliesmom says:

          The evolution of a virus is that as it mutates, it gets more transmissble, but it also becomes less deadly. A virus that kills its host also kills itself. The virus that causes the common cold has managed to stay around so long because it spreads rapidly, might make us feel miserable for a few days, but doesn’t cause many deaths. It’s rapid evolution makes it harder to create a vaccine, which is one reason there isn’t one.

          • Mothy67 says:

            Sadly, I doubt very much was learned regarding battling a pandemic with that horse’s ass fauci at the helm. For as long as I can remember there have been movies and books about a global viral threat. They had a chance to use this to prepare for a more lethal virus and instead they played politics. The data is probably so skewered as to be worthless.

          • 1539days says:

            That’s generally true, but VMF like Ebola is pretty transmissible and has a 70%+ mortality rate. Those viruses “burn out” because an entire village is almost dead before the disease can move on. However, in that case, I would hope people actually locked down.

            There’s still a lot of disturbing “gain of function” research that may have modified COVID to be much more transmissible than SARS. Notice the article said “most” people were vaccinated. Coronaviruses aren’t actually that fixable with vaccines, but respond well to treatment. So, of course we made treatment illegal and vaccines almost mandatory,

        • foxyladi14 says:

          And the Sheeple will obey! 😡

      • Constance says:

        I also want to know the total number dead from all causes in 2020 because I think it fits right into the stats for total deaths for the last 5 individual years.

        • 1539days says:

          Not exactly. NYT is using the “excess deaths” theory (like Puerto Rico) to say there are *more” deaths from COVID. However, 2-3 years out, we’ll probably see that old and sick people who would have died in 2022 died in 2020. Also, many deaths in 2020 were a result of lockdowns themselves and not COVID.

    • Constance says:

      No need to die since the data shows Hydroxychloroquine works.

      • lateblum says:

        You have to live in an area where the use of HCQ is permitted and medical staff is willing to use it.

        • Locked-N-Loaded says:

          You can order HCQ or Ivermectin online from Americas Frontline Doctors at
          Scroll down to read instructions on how to order.There are only about five states where it is illegal to get. I saw a map a couple weeks ago but I can’t find it now. I know Colorado made it illegal.

    • 1539days says:

      More people are being killed by shootings than COVID in New York. In upstate, shootings are up. It’s not happening in the suburbs with legal owners, but “downtown.”

  6. Dora says:

    • DandyTIger says:

      Makes you wonder what % of covid deaths out there are from getting vaxed.

      • elliesmom says:

        There are at least four numbers that should have been being tracked separately from the beginning, but just as it’s hard to separate out ballots after they’ve been thrown in the same pile, it’s hard to go back and get these numbers now. 1. The number of unvaccinated people the virus itself killed. 2. The number of unvaccinated people who tested positive for the virus, but who died from something else. 3. The number of people the vaccine has killed. 4. The number of vaccinated people who have died from the virus.

        I was talking to a neighbor who is a mail carrier who was out of work for two months as various members of his household tested positive for covid in sucession and kept the family quarantined, but not a single one of them ever had a single symptom. They are five of the “cases” reported in the town where I live. Those numbers were used to help keep the schools closed. I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to get to the truth of this plandemic.

        • 1539days says:

          One doctor wanted to know the hospitalization rate, but at a certain point, doctors were telling people to stay home until they couldn’t breathe. Then the only “treatment” was a respirator for virus damaged lungs.

      • lateblum says:

        And we will never know. I’ve read CDC is making it difficult – if not impossible – to report the vaccine adverse side effect.
        I don’t have the link; I saw it on Twitter as I was skimming it a couple of days ago. Yes. I saw it on Twitter. Shame on me.

        • elliesmom says:

          The reporting itself isn’t difficult, but sorting and searching the database to pull out the information you’re looking for is, which makes the information in it almost useless.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          It’s even harder than the national nursing home data on covid when it was first released ( they have improved it slightly, very slightly).There they use names for facilities off some bizarre list that if you do not know much about the facilities and owners you may never find the info you need in the search. Downloading and Matching it to the state bases is fun and you have to set up support files to crosswalk the various provider IDs and facility names (fed covid name, fed Medicare name (where applicable), state covid dataset name, state name used in licensure report . . .). But it is doable.

          The vaccine side effects dataset is akin to climbing a monkey puzzle tree.

      • Mothy67 says:

        It’s only been a few months. God only knows what’s instore down the road.

        • elliesmom says:

          I’ve been rewatching the “Call the Midwife” series. I’m in the season with the Thalidomide babies. One of the things that jumps out at me is how much guilt the mothers and the doctors who prescribed it felt about what they had done to the lives of the children, and how little the pharma companies and the British government through the NHS did to try to make things right. If an adult takes the vaccine, and it turns out to have life altering complications in the future, that’s tragic, but what about the kids whose parents are making the decision for them? When the memory of the day they took their 12 year old daughter to get vaccinated pops up on FB with all of the hoopla frames and the virtue signaling gifs, and it turns out it’s the day their daughter lost her ability to carry a pregnancy to term, how are those parents going to handle it? The pharma companies are already exempt from responsibility. What will the government do?

          • Myiq2xu says:

            What will the government do?

            Blame Trump.

          • elliesmom says:

            On that count, he will deserve some of the blame. He gave the greenlight to fasttrack a new vaccine technology through the approval process. The Biden administration will have the blame for expanding vaccine delivery to pregnant women and the children. But blame aside, how will the government compensate the victims? The only redress they have is money. How big will the government vaccine accident fund need to be? How much is losing your ability to have a family worth? What if the ramification is an immunocomprised life? How much is that worth?

          • 1539days says:

            Or the adolescent boys who develop myocarditis from the vaccine. The CDC knows about this and advised if the case is “mild,” go ahead and take shot #2.

          • 1539days says:

            I’d give Trump a pass on this. He spent months trying to get treatments deployed. His own staff along with the entire world’s medical community ignored him while he was right. Trump didn’t create the vaccine, he only tried to give the US first dibs.

          • Mothy67 says:

            I wonder what they are going to do about school sports. Baby brat is all about competing. It’s a big part of her identity. Nothing ever really stopped. They have to wear masks into the building, but not when playing. No one can attend games and they make kids wear masks when not in the water. Zero cases of transmission from indoor pools.

          • elliesmom says:

            Trump is accountable for “Operation Warp Speed”. He touted it. He took credit for it. When people said it couldn’t be done, he set out to prove them wrong. If the vaccines turn out to be as safe as we’ve been told they are and also turn out to be highly effective, then he deserves the credit. Likewise, if it leaves a lot of people in bad circumstances or dead, then the hurried testing protocols are his responsibility, too. He’s a risk taker, and most really great accomplishments require risk, but with taking risks also comes the responsibility for bad outcomes, too. He also is responsible for leaving Fauci in charge.

          • lyn5 says:

            I agree with Days that Trump should get a pass, but I expect Trump to be blamed for the deaths and other health issues from the vaccines.

    • lyn5 says:

      NaTalia Johnson’s death is super sad. Born in 1983, she was a ballerina. She died less than two weeks after her covid vaccine.

    • elliesmom says:

      Most online bill pay features at your bank will let you pay regularly occurring bills online with no fees. It’s getting a third party pay company involved that gets you “convenience fees”. Take them out of the loop.

  9. Mt.Laurel says:

    Dora’s post on the extra charges for paying bills via those oh so [not] convenient phone 📱apps made me think of a couple articles that popped on techie newsletters.

    That Chime company that is all digital currency and has questionable ads about how people can get their paycheck two days early is evidently even worse than one would imagine. I will look for the links but evidently a significant percent have found themselves locked out of their accounts. And money has gone missing and is not always returned. And even if they get the funds back there are fees and more fees. People only find out when they swipe the card and and it declined.

      That feels like transgender discrimination to me 😁

    • lateblum says:

      If it’s due to Covid, as I’ve heard on the news, then how can it be safe for the athletes ?
      I cannot imagine this is safe for anyone – if Covid is as deadly as WHO and CDC and Biden’s admin, etc are telling the truth. Big “ if”..

  11. lyn5 says:

    The temperature is down in the Klamath Basin because of smoke from the wildfires that collects in the basin. Yay!

    • Somebody says:

      I’m doing OK, getting better each passing day. I’ll be really, really happy if this last batch of blisters is it. I read they usually appear for 2 weeks following treatment, but can appear for up to 6 weeks following🙄 Tomorrow will be 2 weeks off treatment for me, so fingers crossed🤞

      We survived Elsa, but OMG the rain🙄 Tornadoes too, one tornado went from the south side of Jacksonville all the way through JAX, then my county and ended in Georgia at Kings Bay naval base.

      While we were under a tornado warning and the cell with the tornado was about a half mile from us, my husband put on his swimsuit and went out in the storm to “fix” our gutter😬 We have a courtyard garage, the gutter over it is lower than the front of the house. The gutters need cleaning or they did. There was so much rain going into that clogged gutter, three roof pitches come together and drain down into it. Between the clog and the fact the gutter is 21 years old it sagged toward the house and separated. It basically became a metal fire hose spraying water on my dining room transom and windows. Clearly the window has lost its seal because water was coming in through the plantation shutters and onto my dining room floor. It happened very fast, the gutter went and then the water is in the house.

      Hubby went out in that storm with a tornado nearby and ghetto rigged the gutter, then “patched” the end, putting it back together with plumber’s putty. Believe it or not that worked🤣 That stopped the flood, but not satisfied, hubby went to the store in the storm and bought flex seal and flex seal tape to add to the ghetto look🙄 I talked him out of going back out in the rain to ghettoize our dining room window since it was no longer leaking. Obviously we need to get someone out here to figure out if the window is fixable or if it needs to be replaced. It was coming from the top of the window, so it might be the transom that lost its seal. I’m not sure if we can recreate the leak, we spray those windows with the hose to wash them and they don’t leak.

      My biggest regret is that I didn’t film hubby🤣 I had weather radar on my phone tracking that cell. I was very upset with hubby for going out in the storm, climbing up on a ladder, I feared he was going to become a Darwin award winner. He was determined to stop the “fire hose” and he did.

      • Constance says:

        Thanks for checking in! I’m so glad to hear each day is better. Sounds like a hellish storm. I am jealous of the rain though. Seattle hasn’t had any rain since long before the 5 day 105 degree heat wave. Things are looking toasty, pollen and dust is everywhere.

      • Woke Lola says:

        I can totally see him doing that!

        Been thinking of you. Will call this weekend. 💖

    Watching Bream in for Bret. She is perfect for the six pm slot. I haven’t watched Baier since the election. MacCallum lost her prime time berth but they let rino BB continue to reside during one of the highest profile hours. Sexism? I didn’t like him before the November shit show. She delivers straight news and ostensibly doesn’t have me agains ego.

    • taw46 says:

      Yes, I like her for the reasons you listed.

      • Mothy67 says:

        They have shown a very deep bench of talent with the 7 pm tryouts. I wish they’d dump the dreadful Cavuto at 4. He never wins time slot and is dull as dirt. Fox usually wins every hour from 4 to 12 except 4 and occasional loss to maddow. Niel always comes in third. Macullum had much better numbers but they sacrificed her for that election abortion backlash.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    Fact Check: True 😀 This guy’s been thrown off FB so many times……

    • taw46 says:

      So Denise, are you getting tons of rain from Elsa? We had about 6 inches of rain where I live, and one neighborhood in KW had almost 11 inches.

  20. Constance says:

    This is very strange. The AZ audit seems to have set up again in the storage building they moved everything into. If you go to their website and check camera 1 they have 4 views of what is going down. There are some orange shirt observers and a few red ballot counting tables set up but no one working at them.

      • lateblum says:

        From what I read, the judge in this case said – more than once – the sentence should be
        8-9 years and that wouldn’t even be enough for his arrogance and abuse of power. So my question becomes, if that was the position of the judge,why did he only impose a sentence of 30 months? Did he think that other more harsh sentences would be forthcoming in future court cases? Was he bought? Was he threatened? What?

  27. Dora says:

    He started crying. Poor dear! NOT!

  28. Dora says:

    When it comes to their own personal health, most doctors are saying no to experimental covid vaccines

    An internet survey conducted by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) has found that upwards of 60 percent of all doctors are choosing not to get “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

    More than 700 physicians responded to the survey, indicating that they are taking Nancy Reagan’s advice by just saying no to dangerous experimental drugs.

    just remembering how many union reps retired from management jobs.

  30. Myiq2xu says:

    I got a letter from the VA the other day saying my last BP check was high and telling me to drop in for another BP check. Here’s what is weird:

    I haven’t had my BP checked by the VA in over a year. My BP has been fine since I started taking Lisinopril.

    The VA sent me a letter a while back telling me to schedule a vax appt. I never did.

    Is this latest letter just a ploy to get me in the clinic and then vax me when I’m not looking?

  31. Mothy67 says:

    Found a bag of newspapers from the early 1900’s in the back of a closet. Not in very good shape so doubt they have any value other than being interesting.
