  2. Miranda says:

    Merry Christmas! We did ours yesterday, so today will be a quiet day.

    • Constance says:

      Same with my family. We had a great time, all gathered at a spectacularly decorated restaurant, everyone got in in spite of the King County vaccination proof mandate. It you fake like you are getting out your card they wave you through. It’s so much fun for everyone when you don’t stress about cooking, decorating, presents and house cleaning. Merry Christmas to all TCHers!

    DeSantis Christmas Message: ‘How Blessed’ Are We to ‘Celebrate the Birth of Christ Freely’

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) released a Christmas message ahead of the holiday, reminding Americans how blessed they are to live in a country that “protects our right to celebrate the birth of Christ freely.”

    These people have recently lost everything, and here they are last night. What a sweet reminder for a reason for the season. ❤

    Merry Christmas everyone! Love you all, back to work… 🙏⭐❤🎁🎄🧑‍🎄😘

    You did it again, Denise. Triggered a happy memory. My Scout troop was planning a camping trip to St. John in the US Virgin Islands where there is a beautiful national park called Cinnamon Bay. (You want to go there.) Spring vacation in MA is always the week that includes Patriots’ Day. That year it also included Easter. While the parents were supportive of my taking the girls, a few parents were concerned about their daughters missing church on Easter. The girls explained I always found a beautiful spot when we went camping and took them there for some “quiet contemplation” on Sunday morning, but the parents weren’t satisfied with that for Easter. So I contacted the National Park, and they assured me there would be a member of the clergy who would conduct a sunrise service on the beach because it happened every Sunday morning.

    We arrived at the park on Saturday and set up camp. That night we built a campfire on the beach and had a sing down. It’s a Scout game, and while I’m a crow, my girls were canaries. The girls left Easter Bunny baskets for each other, and in the middle of the night, they discovered wild donkeys really love jelly beans. In the morning we headed down to the beach with other campers in the dark. As we waited for both the sun and the clergy to show up, the campers became chatty, and formed a community. Fleeting and temporary, but it made our week even more special. We “adopted” a newly divorced dad and his two little boys, He was there on a tight budget, and I had discounts everywhere. We also knew how to camp. 🙂

    The sun came up, but the clergy never showed. One of the campers went back to his tent and returned with a Bible. Everyone pulled up a square of sand, and he read the Easter story. Then he turned to me and said, “I believe you brought a choir with you”. The girls led the group in singing “Let There Be Peace on Earth”, and in that little corner of the planet, on that Sunday morning, there was.

    We didn’t have snow predicted for yesterday. It was supposed to rain, but overnight we got two inches of snow, I went out and cleared my stairs and a path to the street. That was it for me. That was how sore I was willing to be today. (But I don’t have a single ache, and that was a lot of shoveling.) I left my shovel and big broom in front of the garage door. I knew I’d get plowed out eventually, and my kids could park on the street and come up the path. Just before noon I heard a lot of laughter. When I looked out, my kids and the grandkids were taking turns shoveling amid a torrent of snowballs. When they came in snow-covered, I had their packages with the heated throws I had bought them ready to be opened. The unexpected snow had brought “Peace on Earth” to my little corner of the planet.

    I don’t know what I believe and what I don’t, but I do know we have to learn how to go with flow and trust ourselves enough to know when to just let life happen. The patches of Peace on Earth may be all we get, but if we recognize them and let them give us hope there will be more, we’re going to be OK. “God bless us, Every One!”

    Merry Christmas!

    Another holiday favorite because it’s the Bing and the Bowie ❤

    Merry Christmas!
    Last night was the celebration here. so today it’s a book and leftovers.
    Tomorrow Van Gogh. The trip is now my brat, boy, another niece and her boy. Looking forward to it. I was going to do uber both ways but second niece will drive so it only cost me an extra 60. Plus dinner, but Christmas only comes but once a year.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    I admire the old guy’s restraint for not punching her back. Also, as an old gal myself, masks trigger vertigo, so I have to pull it down now and then til my head clears. Wait til the end, the Air Marshals appear, ta da ! When I watched this a second time, you can see the bald one observing in the back there. They can’t make a move until there’s interference with the flight crew, which it became when crazy lady blocked the drink cart 😀

    • DeniseVB says:

      For me, it was the movie Polar Express. It’s just so much more joyful happiness to believe. I think we finally “get it” as adults 🙂 When my daughter was still smarter than me when she was 9, she called b.s. on Santa Claus. I told her fine, if she wants to take the chance to find/not find presents under the tree. I still hid gifts til she was 17 😀

    A very Merry and Blessed Christmas to all. ❤

    LOL, Science.

    Hope Santa left you what you wanted most!

    I know this is our first Christmas without our President Trump, but you can sure feel the love on social media, the rest of the people choose to be miserable because they’re stuck with that unfunny Biden 😀

    Happy Boxing Day everybody!

    Our house is basically a tourist attraction at this point (or our opponents have a really on-point doxxing game). There are people outside right now taking pictures. My favorite tourists were yesterday–the H Man and I walked the dog, him in his Santa costume, me in my (okay way way way too short) Mrs. Claus costume, the dog in her Santa hat that might be a Geneva Convention violation. As we approached the house at the end of our walk, there was a lady who had pulled over to photograph the house. She says hi, we say hi, and it isn’t until we are literally opening the door that she says, “Oh, you live here?”

    Really lady? It’s that much of a surprise that the lunatics roaming the neighborhood in Santa costumes might ALSO be the people whose tiny front yard is covered with inflatable-Santa-on-a-motorcycle, inflatable-snowman-with-disco-lights, inflatable-Santa-and-reindeer, Christmas film projector in the window, lights on the house, and all the rest?

    I just don’t know about people sometimes.

    Oh, and the air hockey table was DEFINITELY a mistake. We live near the (partially decommissioned) air force base and the (COVID killed commercial aviation here) airport, which means that we hear the roar of the jets several times a week. The air hockey table is louder.

      Thought of Lola’s kitties when I saw this.

    • Miranda says:

      Better than the first (and only!) year I had both a black kitty and a Christmas tree. I knew not to put ornaments on it, but I had lights. He climbed into it, which was ok, but then got his head jammed in between two branches and almost strangled before I got him out. Husband and I were both working in offices, so the tree came down that same day.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day to everyone!

    Sorry I missed everyone yesterday, I was busy from 4:30am until almost 11pm. I cooked breakfast and took it to my son’s, then we came back here for lunch. My brother had invited my family and my sister and BIL to his house for dessert, appetizers and drinks at 6pm. We did all get together, but my brother changed the location at 5:45pm down the street to his new girlfriend’s house. She lives at the end of his street just outside the gates of her parents “Daddy and Mommy Warbucks” riverfront estate. Apparently her two siblings and her cousins all have houses just outside the estate.

    I was writing a post about it all, but it was really long. There was nobody there at first and we thought my brother gave us the wrong address or blew us off. We were all well enroute when he called to change the location. Suddenly the estate gates flew open and vehicles poured out, trays, chafing dishes and hoards of people went into the house. The kids up through teens were directed to the family room where piles of gifts were distributed, my 3 grandchildren included.

    It was more of a party really lots of people. My granddaughters can’t wait to go back🤣 It was nice of total strangers to buy them presents, lots of presents and stacks of gift cards. The whole thing was a bit overwhelming, my sister 3 minutes in demanded I get her a glass of wine NOW! Then about 5 or 10 minutes after that my sister and BIL had to leave for an emergency. After she left Mama Warbucks commented that my sister sure seemed bossy and controlling, I laughed but made no comment.

    Daddy and Mommy Warbucks clung to my husband and I like glue, super glue. Kept trying to plan dinner out with us offering up every expensive restaurant in the area……you two like to eat here? There? There? Daddy Warbucks sure enough wanted to take hubby golfing. It was all about my brother, 5 minutes of chatting about hubby’s work, the grandkids or what have you, peppered with “Who was your brother’s 3rd grade teacher?” 🤣🤣🤣

    A very bizarre and interesting night. Honestly a scene you might see in a crappy lifetime or hallmark movie. The kind of thing where you roll your eyes and say THAT would never happen.

    Have watched only the first 30 minutes and love it. It’s Roku’s first original film and it’s free.

      that show looks gayer than Somebody’s gift to Anthony.

      • lyn5 says:

        LOL. I need to watch the two seasons of Zoey. I’m watching on my computer, but we have two Rokus.

        Hey! Anthony is gay and who doesn’t like chocolate?

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      As someone who have been working with record/patient level health data for decades I am horrified but not surprised. It’s Oregon so I am thinking no one will call them on their crap. This attitude it is causing all sorts of problems nationwide with people who want access to details that are non of their business but they want the woke points/$$$$. One of the many reasons you often see no actual numbers for diagnosis specific death/hospitalization/surgery/whatever rates for small populations (e,g, the town this hospital is located, very small counties and even states once past the top five) are because it is possible to identify individuals with very little info.

      I guess covid is not covered by the old standbys also provide on that hospitals website:

      Skylakes Privacy policy

      Skylakes Non-discrimination and language assistance notice

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        has not have – and I cannot even blame the cat. Just my mixed up brain because I was so angry I was having trouble being civil

      • lyn5 says:

        I agree with you. Notice how unvaccinated is red and vaccinated is blue.

      • lyn5 says:

        I blame it on Oregon being so effed up. I can’t make an educated decision on whether to get vaccinated without all the data. I asked a med tech how people are getting covid locally, and she said most are catching it from social gatherings. There are some who have no idea how they caught it.

        • 1539days says:

          My old company had an “expert” on communicable diseases give a webinar about COVID. This was back when they thought people were catching it from touching the same doorknob. For the most part, people are just hanging around other people. So far, the only thing the vaxx does is lighten the severity of some symptoms and lowers the chance of death from 1-2% to less than 1%. That’s only the case if you get “boosted” every three months because the jab loses effectieness more quickly than natural immunity.

          • Everyone is unvaccinated because there is no vaccine. The drug that people get when they get “The Jab” is not a vaccine. I suspect that Big Pharma is gonna be phasing out all favor of these new not-vaccine drugs.

            Why spend money making a vaccine that requires one shot and provides lifetime immunity when you can sell not-vaccines that require regular booster shots? As Chris Rock said about an AIDS vaccine, “There ain’t no money in the cure. The money is in the treatment.”

          • 1539days says:

            In the case of Coronavirus, the vaccine is worse than the disease. SARS-CoV-1 (old fashioned Chinese SARS from the 2000’s) vaccine development led to a bunch of animals whose immune systems were destroyed.

            This thing is a genetically modified virus that infects human cells, kills them and makes the husk produce spike proteins. Unfortunately, this is the field trial for future vaccination. THe worst part is that there is a reverse correlation between people affected by the jab versus the virus. Old people should probably get the jab, young people should not. The young have some of the worst reactions. Herd immunity is bullshit when it will take 4 years to vaccinate the world. Also, Mueller’s ratchet is being proven because COVID is getting more contagious and less deadly since the goal is to replicate in the most living hosts.

    As they bask in the limelight and enjoy celebrity status, over 1,000 of their coworkers will be celebrating the holiday with no job and, in many cases, an uncertain future ahead of them.

    This is because their former coworkers at Northwell Health who refused to get the vaccine were fired earlier this year. These singing nurses are among those who complied to keep their jobs.

    Went to Van Gogh Immersive tonight
    Enjoyed it. Was great to do with nieces for holidays. Don’t think I would have spent the money at any other time of year, but glad they had experience.
