    Beautiful picture!

    FUCK MY LIFE. Remember the kid who was sentenced to 7 days of isolation for sitting at a lunch table with a kid who tested positive? And then on day 2 he tested negative? Yesterday was his birthday AND the last day before he could return to school.

    Aaaaand this morning he tested positive. He had approximately ONE HOUR back at school before being kicked out again. The school sent an enormous bouncer to my 11-year-old daughter’s class to throw her out (they attend the same school). How the fuck did he get Covid staying at home? He isn’t sick. But now I have another fun-filled week of getting nothing done with FIVE kids kicked out of school. Nobody is sick.

    The silver lining: fuck my principles. The positive kid is the one who has been most hurt by the “passport,” he’s very social and it has been months since he has been able to do normal teenage things with his friends. But his positive test gives him six months of being able to live a free-ish life and go places with his friends. I’m not going to force my politics on him. The kid gets the pass. Feels like the least I can do.

    I am kind of hoping at this point that everybody tests positive. The number of days of isolation is the same regardless of whether the kids are positive or negative. And if they test positive, I’m going to cross my fingers that either Macron loses the election OR at some point in the next six months we do what England is doing, and we can just be done with this shit.

      It’s time we were all done with the 💩. {{{{{{{{{Jadzia}}}}}}}}

    • elliesmom says:

      In my neighborhood parents with children at home because they had tested positive, as long as no one was sick, pooled the kids together. Giving a 6th grader a 4th grader to hang out with wasn’t necessarily his first choice, but they found common ground, and some unlikely friendships were formed. When I compared them to “chicken pox parties”, I got blank stares. I don’t know if

    • lateblum says:

      Awww geez, Jadzia. Your poor kids. It really stinks. I feel for all of you.

    • votermom says:

      “But his positive test gives him six months of being able to live a free-ish life and go places with his friends. ”

      I don’t understand. What’s the rule?

    • DeniseVB says:

      When I hear BoJo was lifting mandates and restrictions in the UK, I had hoped it would start spreading to other countries. Then again, we have a really cool Gov in Virginia now who lifted everything but the pro-maskers and school shutdowns (aka Teachers Unions) are making life miserable for those who want to make their own choices. We normals are never going to make everybody happy. F’em all.

      • Somebody says:

        Your Governor is going to have to assert his power and take the districts to court. It would be better and he’d be on stronger ground if the Virginia legislature would pass legislation. That’s yhe way it happened here in Florida, DeSantis signed an executive order, but it was only temporary until the law passed by the legislature went into effect.

        DeSantis immediately began suing school districts and they him. He threatened their funding, etc. In the end the state won, but that first year it was a hodge podge with blue districts requiring masks, shutting down, etc. Red districts chugging along with maskless in person learning. It was a real world science experiment and you know what? Kids and teachers in red districts weren’t dropping dead, there were no major school outbreaks. That data helped when it all ended up in court.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        And of course the idiots in the extended swamp of northern Virginia doubled down and worse in response to Youngkins (I hope this comes out close enough as apples auto correct evidently hates his name) attempts to get things back on track.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      So sorry.

      Swampland too has been one of the worst for blizzard tactics. It’s such useless and unproductive approach and negatives of such nonsense will reverberate back on everyone for years. I am hearing more and more complaints from parents even here in swampland with the crazy school rules. Many with young children are against giving them shots while stile developing that apparently do very little good an the long term repercussions are unknown. More are saying they now get the reluctance on the shots and boosters and triple masking and hoping some sanity will re-emerge.

    • Constance says:

      I’m sure the elections in France are just as corrupt as ours so I wouldn’t depend on Macron losing. He’s installed. Anyone who carries out an Authoritarian plan is not worried about being reelected.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        No kidding. It’s so depressing.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          That said, I’m wondering if the way that this ends up “ending” here is just quiet noncompliance. I sprung for the fancy tests. Everybody is negative, which means that everybody except the teens were allowed to go back to school today. THE RULES say that they have to take their negative test results with them to get back in, which frankly isn’t TOO unreasonable.

          But my 11-year-old forgot to take her results with her. I found them on the table after she went to school. Apparently nobody checked–I haven’t gotten a call from the school or anything. Maybe the school doesn’t really care either, as long as it looks like they “did something.”

    • 1539days says:

      The world has never tried to vaccinate a population during an active global pandemic. Obviously, this experiment was a failure. Isolating the high risk along with theraputics would have been the solution. What happened is going to be a huge black eye on the medical profession with they way they tried to protect themselves at the expense of the suffering and how “leading experts” dictated solution that would have been more thought out if they came out of my ass.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        IMO the biggest public-health disaster of the last two years is going to be the fallout from large numbers of people no longer trusting the medical establishment. I never had a problem with said medical establishment. Now you couldn’t pay me to go to the doctor unless there’s spurting blood or a bone sticking out. I’m officially middle-aged now, this can’t be a healthy attitude to have.

    Good Morning.

    Thanks for another beautiful picture.

    I don’t know where you find them all, but keep them coming. 🙂

  3. Dora says:

    I remember those days well.

    Things were so simple back then.

    • swanspirit says:

      I remember coming home from “playing in the woods” in the pouring rain, soaked to the skin, exhilarated, and my mother giving me a shot of whiskey with lemon juice in it to prevent a cold. Along with the chicken soup of course. Didn’t get sick at all.

      • Dora says:

        I was given a cup of tea with honey and lemon. That worked pretty well too, but yours sounds better. 🙂

      • elliesmom says:

        “Go eat some dirt. Teach your body who’s the boss.”

      • lateblum says:

        My mother was a funny one. She was a nurse who would get hysterical at the sight of blood. She wouldn’t let us get dirty because germs. She kept us away from every and anyone who was sick to keep us “safe”. And she did give us chicken soup, orange juice and bed rest on the rare instances when we were sick.

        As a result, by the time I was 25, if my hands were dirty, they actually hurt. I decided to pull weeds in the yard by hand without gloves to “expose” myself to being dirty – this was before I knew anything about psychology or exposure therapy.

        And the big one was that I caught chicken pox at age 37. I had a very difficult time with this childhood illness, and only a few months afterward, developed a serious blood disorder that resulted in the removal of my spleen. Good times.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        My dad was a firm believer in Tea 🍵 with lemon 🍋 , honey 🍯 and a shot of 🥃 whisky for warding of colds. Mom would giggle as neither were drinkers but they had discovered that they were tastier with higher quality booze and actually hid the bottles when older brothers came of age. If they raided the cupboards They got the cheaper stuff.

  4. Dora says:

    Sounds good, but I’m afraid they will find a way to bring it back. After all, they are democrats!



  5. swanspirit says:

    That picture is so beautiful, and it made me nostalgic for a farm I used to live on, in Northern Maryland. A very old farm, built in 1773, with a huge stone barn and silos and big old beautiful trees.
    The barn had rifle slits in the sides. Those narrow windows, that were narrow on the outside, and wider on the inside, so it was easier to shoot out, but harder to hit anyone inside.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That makes me nostalgic for our family trips between DC and NYC before I-95 was built. Hours of farmland in Maryland and Delaware, I was too young to appreciate all that boring 😉

      • elliesmom says:

        When I was little, there was no highway between where I lived and Boston. The roads into the city started in pretty farmland and slowly turned to city. The “gateway” to real city was a traffic “rotary” called the Neponset Circle. Next to the road was a drive-in movie. At night you could watch, but not hear. the movie from the road. Occasionally, the theater would show some “pretty racy stuff”. News that some star was playing in a movie there, and there were nude scenes would back up traffic. Teens would park their cars and sit in the grass in the middle. By the time my friends and I were old enough to drive, there was a controlled access highway into Boston. We missed out on the farmland “scenery”.

      • swanspirit says:

        What, Denise? You didn’t scream COWS!! 🐂🐃🐄 🐮🐮or HORSES!! 🐴🐎🐎🐴🐴🐎 from the back seat?? Whenever you saw some?? 😲😲😲

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Sparked lovely memories for me as well. We had regular Sunday rides and rarely missed even in winter. Always took seed and suet and other items to leave for the wildlife.

  7. elliesmom says:

    There are some people who write things, and when I read them, I can hear their voices in my head reading to me. Mollie Hemingway is one. Victor Davis Hanson is another. A whole book by Robert Kennedy, Jr was a challenge. 🙂 Sometimes I can hear the author, and when the writing is a quote from someone else, the voice switches to the person who is being quoted. Like in this Jordan Peterson article where he quotes Putin.

    “This, I believe, should call to mind some of what we are witnessing now. Looking at what is happening in a number of Western countries, we are amazed to see the domestic practices — which we, fortunately, have left, I hope — in the distant past. The fight for equality and against discrimination has turned into aggressive dogmatism bordering on absurdity, when the works of the great authors of the past — such as Shakespeare — are no longer taught at schools or universities, because their ideas are believed to be backward. The classics are declared backward and ignorant of the importance of gender or race. In Hollywood, memos are distributed about proper storytelling and how many characters of what color or gender should be in a movie. This is even worse than the agitprop department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.”

    I can read very fast, faster than these people can talk, and an educational psychologist I worked with for some of my students said the reason why I switch to a being read to mode is it slows me down so I can absorb what’s being said better. But I’m not an auditory learner so just listening isn’t as good as seeing the words. If you’d like to read the whole Jordan Peterson article, here’s the link. It’s worth reading at any speed.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I thank you. When you write I hear, better, I listen.
      I keep fucking up. Two hardcore detox in six months. I do not know if I can be. I hurt noone. I drink alone. I can’t even do sex apps. I try to fix random.
      One more time I might try.

      • elliesmom says:

        Get your ass there. ❤

        • Mothy67 says:

          I apologize. Silly me thought taking away drink would make me better. It’s worse. I was walking around like a zombie. I need help. Alcohol is just a symptom. I don’t know if 28 days will be better. Twice I cleaned up twice I failed. Spectacularly.
          I believe you shit or get off the pot. I deny myself what I take pride in giving. My Shay is one tough cookie. I built her to handle. I will be 55 next week. I have never touched another.not once. I found this place because of Stephen Staynor. Years ago.
          I am going to try again.

    • swanspirit says:

      That was interesting, EM. Most of the time I look for the script, before watching the video, because I read faster than the speaker can talk, and I get annoyed, unless I really enjoy the speaker, and also enjoy listening to their voice.

    I guess Senators Sinema and Manchin kept their word to vote No last night against ending the filibuster. Rather than saying anything to/about Manchin, Robert Reich, our favorite little former Clinton cabinet member, took aim at Sen. Sinema.

    I finished salting the driveway just as the Fedex guy pulled up. I have until noon tomorrow to worry about fetching the mail before my mail carrier calls for a wellness check. The only issue is at what point before 7 am tomorrow do I attempt to push the trash and recycling bins down the hill? If the temps stay above freezing, and the sky stops dumping the ice/rain combo early enough, I’ll be walking on a clear dry driveway. If it continues well into the afternoon, then I’m going to need crampons, Four days ago when I scheduled the Fedex delivery, today was supposed to a partly cloudy day in the 40s.

    (NEWSER) – The family of a US Marine killed in the suicide bombing at the Kabul airport amid the US withdrawal from Afghanistan last year is now suing Alec Baldwin for $25 million, Fox News reports. They say Baldwin defamed and invaded the privacy of Roice McCollum, a sister of Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, by calling her an “insurrectionist” on his Instagram feed.

    BOOM! Garland Favorito: “Yes, There Is a Coverup in the Election in the State of Georgia and Yes the Secretary of State, We Believe, Is Behind It” (VIDEO)

    Garland Favorito and VoterGA held a press conference this morning at 10 AM Eastern to discuss the lack of chain of custody documentation on the state’s ballot drop-box implementation.

    According to Garland at least 100,000 Georgia ballots lack the adequate chain of custody documents from the 2020 election. The number is likely much larger than this. Garland Favorito told The Gateway Pundit his investigation corroborates the True the Vote ballot box fraud investigation in the state of Georgia. Garland told us they still have no idea how many ballots came from drop boxes in 202o. That number has not been provided by the state! This is absolutely shocking that that number was never released.

    Supreme Court Rejects Big Abortion a Second Time, Keeps Texas Abortion Ban in Place

    For the second time in two months, the Supreme Court has rejected a request from Big Abortion to help it overturn the Texas abortion ban that protects unborn babies with beating hearts.

    In a 6-3 ruling today, the nation’s highest court rejected a request from Texas abortion companies to move their lawsuit from the Texas Supreme Court and place it in the hands of a federal judge that would overturn the ban. All of the Republican appointed justices voted in the majority against Big Abortion while each of the three liberal justices voted with the abortion businesses.

    Can I do it again? A third try at rehab? Sobering up is easy it’s living with Tim I can’t take. I did everything right and still got stuck with me. A part of me says damaged goods. No fixing this much stupid but another piece can’t let go. I want to try. I don’t have suicidal thoughts. Not that interesting. I already paid my deductible. A third try at rehab though? It was so easy before covid. I was always drunk how I lived. Then there was no where to go and it progressed.
    I will be 55 next week. A senior citizen attempting to find out how to live. Sad. My baby girl is my reason. I can’t bequeth her a tale of someone giving up. Not after all these years. I gotta try and make a better way

      When I was in AlAnon, there weren’t many meetings, so my sponsor said go any meeting. So I went to AA, NA, etc. At one AA meeting, there was a woman telling her story. She said ” I went through the windshields of cars, 9 times, and still didn’t figure it out. But I am here now” She got sober, and became a Reiki Master. $300/session with her.
