    Aargh of the day. The H-man wants to quit smoking. Called the smoking cessation program, which is run by the national health care system. They won’t take him because he hasn’t been vaccinated.

    After all, health is VERY IMPORTANT.

    I’ll just keep him topped up on the e-liquid (an electronic cigarette was his gift LAST CHRISTMAS) and maybe he can find something online, in French. (His English is about as good as my French, which is to say that he can get along in English, but is a lot more comfortable in French.)

      No nicotine, quit smoking patch.
      I can’t say if it works, I quit so many years ago, but maybe it will help. ❤

    • votermom says:

      There’s supposed to be a really good book about how to quit – I’ll try to find it.

    • Helen Kenney says:

      when I quit smoking I used plastic coffee stirrers. a lot of the smoking habit is something to do with your hands. I chewed on the stirrers in place of cigarettes A friend taught me that years before. he used unlit cigarettes but I knew I could not do that. For the st two weeks I didn’t even like me but I never picked up another cigarette. that was 20 years ago. the reason I stopped was for the 1st time in my life I got a bad chest x-ray. I called to see the results and the nurse told me you have emphysema, there is nothing we can do for you, you do not need oxygen. scared the hell out of me. My vanity said I do not want to walk around carrying an oxygen tank. this may not work for everyone but it did for me
      It cost me 79cents for a box of 500 stirrers. I did not use all of them

    • votermom says:

      This is the book (which I haven’t read)

      Apparently there is a newer posthumous version coauthored by someone

      • Mothy67 says:

        I have quit many times. A little over a year is the longest. In my experience the best way to do it is to switch to rolling tobacco for a week or two. There are no other addictive additives plus if you are using something like drum(yummy if you can find it fresh- abundant in NY, every pouch I find here is stale, it’s very hipster). It takes time to hand roll so you smoke less. After other chemicals are cleaned out set a date and stick with it. Go away to the mountains for a long weekend. After three days the nicotine is out of your system. Drink lots of water. Helen is right – have straws or suckers to replace the tactile. Cinnamon sticks work well. A friend who studies addiction from the vista of a college campus claims it really takes around nine months to break the habit. Same amount of time to create a child.

        • Mothy67 says:

          Bottom line though is you have to want to quit. You can use a number of aids, but once you are off those it’s up to you. Helen didn’t want to carry oxygen around. Many women stop cold turkey when pregnant. You need a reason to focus on the next time you have a craving. Last time I quit I was in a bar and figured I will just smoke tonight. I am currently smoking, but when I see someone driving and smoking especially in the back seat it looks so wierd. Like you can’t wait a half an hour. I have used timers knowing all I have to do is make it 72 hours and nicotine will be gone. I have never quit and not made it a month. My problem is I like smoking to paraphrase Wilde a man needs a hobby.

    Chuck Grassley announces 2022 reelection campaign

    Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said on Friday he is running for reelection in 2022, announcing plans to hold a series of public events over the weekend to spearhead his pursuit for an eighth term in the Senate.

    Grassley, 88, made his reelection announcement in a Twitter post after months of speculation of whether or not he would seek an additional term as Republicans seek to maintain hold of his coveted post.

    I’m headed out into a thunderstorm to walk Ellie. How to tell her it’s not safe to go for a swim? Maybe walk in the other direction? She didn’t get her walk until late afternoon yesterday so she’s not going to take “no” for an answer this morning.

    Lauren Boebert
    When they introduced federal income tax, they said it was temporary.

    When they introduced the Patriot Act, they said it was temporary.

    Now they’re introducing vaccine passports and saying they’re temporary.

    Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.

    After his Dr Frankenstein years at the London School of Economics, George Soros Schwarzman Liberace Rockefeller-Rothschild led an elite gay corps of master spies cum propagandists cum secret police called the Nazi Schutzstaffel during Faking WWII in Europe. SS gays make up the senior ranks of the outdated Jesuit Klan CIA today.

    Point here is that George Soros was Jesuit. Ashkenazi Jews (French mainly), as distinguished from Sephardic Jews (Spanish mainly), are Jesuit Catholics in drag. In Israel and America too. Not easy to unwind a fake religion based on an invented secret police state. But inertia like entropy is a force of nature. Even for SS gays.

    You enjoy the shower because like sex it gets the heart pumping. The water and washing are nice, but it’s the circulation that feels good all over. If it was just about the water, you’d take a bath everyday. A bath is nice when you occasionally want to be depressed and/or meditate with candles and scents. It is always about circulation and hormones.

    • elliesmom says:

      We had a slipper tub in our old house with a separate shower. In the morning I used the shower, but at night there was nothing more restful than filling the tub up to the top and sliding in for a soak before bed. This house had a nice shower/tub combo, but Elliesdad couldn’t get in and out of the tub safely so we pulled the tub out and built a big walk-in shower. It has massaging sprays and the whole shebang, but I still miss the tub. It might be a “woman thing”, but I always feel cleaner after I’ve had a nice long soak. Our tub had a handheld shower, too, so it was the best of both.

      • swanspirit says:

        The best baths I ever had were in a gigantic Claw foot slipper tub. It was almost like going for a swim. I have a standard tub / shower combo now, but I almost never usr the tub. It’s just too small.

        • threewickets says:

          Best bath I ever had was in a Rothschild Raffles executive penthouse suite on the Singapore waterfront. Basically a love tub with a big window overlooking downtown Singapore. Back when I was working for Bobby Kennedy. Plutocracy.

          • threewickets says:

            Didn’t know what a Rothschild was, didn’t know Bobby Kennedy was alive, but I was working for him (and Soros) and dating his daughter who turns out to be my first cousin. Rothschild sense of humor. She’s a sweetheart. They’re doing NWO China now.

    The day before the first results from the Arizona forensic election audit are released, Mayor Rudy Giuliani talks to host Steve Bannon about the long road since November 3, and the crusade to get justice for President Trump. He begins by refuting Bob Woodward and Robert Acosta, whose new book “Peril” dismisses the legitimacy of Trump’s claims of Nov. 3.

  11. Dora says:

    Fox News Bans Rudy Giuliani.
    The network is not allowing the former Trump lawyer on the air for at least three months, a move one of his allies described as “cowering to the far left”

    Stolen from Don Surber.

    Turns out humans aren’t the only ones who get down and dirty for sexual pleasure.

    A pair of frisky gorillas at the Bronx Zoo proved that when one was filmed performing oral sex on its partner in front of aghast zoo-goers. A clip of the NSFW scene is currently blowing up on social media — but animal experts report that it’s all completely normal.

  13. Helen Kenney says:

    guess she did not read the commandment “Thou Shall Not Kill”
    when will she be excommunicated from the Catholic Church?

  14. threewickets says:

    If any of you beautiful trolls in town want to coffee me, instead of troll me with your Tawana amateur-acting stunts (and that includes you, Tawana’s boyfriend), please FB PM me with Suite P time day. I’ll be there sitting alone or loitering if I can’t get a table. Better yet, just stop me on the street like a human being (not a Tawana programmed robot troll) and say … Michael hi, my name is X and so on. I promise to be civilized in return. Cheers.

  15. Helen Kenney says:

    bid-on again attacking border agents. how much does he get from the cartels to bring illegals in to the country? he never does anything for nothing

  16. Helen Kenney says:

    petty. crooked as a dog’s hind leg little man can not stand someone who loves America and shows it to the world

  17. threewickets says:

    I learned the word “dickhead” from roommates McConaughey and Clooney when we were all young college kids, and calling someone or something dickhead was a way to say … hey that’s not a good way to be. Then they both disappeared, found Avignon CIA Jesus, and became omg nukular gay dickheads. I did not think that was the point of Judeo-Christianity.

  18. threewickets says:

    Armin Laschet the Brussels Frog will become new Chancellor of Germany. Couple things to bear in mind. This means Von der Leyen Brussels will work for Laschet Berlin, not the other way around. And the real power in Europe is at the ECB in Frankfurt, which means the Mayer-Rothschilds and not Christine Lagarde so much (tho she’s probly a Rothschild, so it’s all organic).

  19. Mothy67 says:

    Making sure I have this straight. The potato is attacking an overworked border agent for grabbing the color of invader and he has been put on leave.
    So what punishment should be meted out to a guy who kills 7 children in a drone strike to save face after allowing 13 US service people to die in a botched departure?
    (not original from me paraphrased from a post I read last night)

  20. Helen Kenney says:

    and just like that. all the illegals disappeared from the border camp. where they went nobody knows or is talking about. no testing. who needs testing?

  21. threewickets says:

    Beginning with AIDS and today with COVID, the Geneva WHO and the Atlanta CDC wholesale lie to the world about disease and plagues. This is not just some fake shootings here, fake terrorists there, fake news and fake dead people. This is wholesale lying to the world about global medicine and global science. It is a very big fucking deal. Tawana Rothschild is all over this, top to bottom, start to finish.

    • lateblum says:

      Three wickets, I understand almost nothing of what you post. Please tell me who is Tawana Rothschild?

      • Mothy67 says:

        But it is fun to read and scratch one’s head. Then again I don’t understand much.

      • threewickets says:

        Tawana Rothschild is Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton, Tom Hanks, Steve Schwarzman are brothers. They are all sons of George Soros Liberace Rothschild (aka David Rockefeller) with different moms (Nancy Sue Wilson with new birthdate on the internet I see lol, Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, respectively). George Soros was born in 1915. Bill Clinton is possibly the biggest fraud that walked the earth.

    • threewickets says:

      Who is responsible? Clooney Bush and his husband Al Gore. Tawana Clinton and his husband McConaughey Bush. George Soros Liberace Rothschild and his gay Nazi CIA. The WHO and CDC need gutting. It may, or may not, bring down Bush Xi.

  22. Mothy67 says:

    Anyone else ever wonder if the elf would use aerosol to disperse his poison?

    • Constance says:

      I’m sure he would. Remember when Trump was made ill at one of the Presidential debates the left was trying to stop last year. I’m sure they sprayed his side of the stage with Covid germs.

  23. threewickets says:

    I assume Schwarzman’s Escobar and McConaughey’s Vidal look-alike super are sending those amateur actors to troll me on the streets and roads and benches, etc. All Marilyn and Tawana’s people. Cut it out please. 😉 Haven’t you jack-assed enough?

    Fifty years ago I took a class in evolutionary biology. At the time there was a pop culture book making the rounds called “the Naked Ape”. While not what I’d call serious scholarship. it was a fun read and gave my misogynist prof opportunity to try to embarrass his only female student. (He failed.) But the premise of the book was it’s all “nature”, not “nuture”. Fast forward 25 years or so, and I’m studying the sociology of education in grad school, and everything is “nuture”. It’s to the educational community’s advantage to push that. If it’s “nature” school can’t fix it.

    A few days ago I saw a panel discussion with Bret Weinstein, the evolutionary biologists who was “cancelled” at Evergreen for not being “woke” enough. He seemed like an interesting guy, and he was talking about how a lot of our problems today are because humans haven’t been able to adapt quickly enough to changes, and we aren’t asking the question “Yes, we can, but should we?” Anyway, he and his wife, also an evolutionary biologist, have written a book about how from an evolutionary viewpoint we got to where we are. Debunks the whole nature vs nurture thing. It was a rainy day here so I made a batch of cinnamon buns and settled down for a read. It’s not as “sensational” as the Desmond Morris book, but I’m about halfway through, and it’s pretty good. It’s called “A Hunter/Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century”.

    • Anthony says:

      Thanks for the tip. I saw Bret on a couple of shows a few months ago, and he seemed refreshingly sane. I’ll order the book tonight.

      The Paleo diet is predicated on the idea that human biology isn’t ready to eat a lot of bread and dairy even after thousands of years of being part of our diet.

    Kids phone was stuck on apple logo. She needs a phone for school. Maybe not all schools do, but they have acclimated. So I gave her mine. Same Iphone 12. I needed to go to an Apple store or mail it in. I worked with apple for several hours. Pup ignored many over night software upgrades because phone shuts off and messes up her alarm. She did not allow software upgrade for close to a year. When I tried to use her Mac which she never touches no upgrades. 1800 dollar room accent. She doesn’t need it for school. They have chromebooks. She can do her homework on her phone or use school laptop. She does homework what little she has in bed on laptop. No need to sit at the desk. Problem with phone appears to be she didn’t upgrade and when I used Mac it was behind. I had to reboot Mac while chatting on a kindle and then connect phone to Mac to reboot. The woman and man I was on chat with for hours saw it as a challenge. I was only online with each for 5 minutes at a time. You have to wait forever for things to upload/download. It all worked out her phone works fine and I got a year extension on both our phones which were set to expire next month. They were into figuring out why and asked if I’d work with them. All it was was me hitting a few keys and waiting. I just had to be there to respond.
    Anyhow Shay had my phone for a few days. Of course I snooped. One text exchange said she feels like she’s really loving her family which means she probably hates me some days (most) but it was touching to read.
