"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

I saw, thank you sir. Email to you incoming soon.

hi. Here, 40 yrs as vet tech and now hospital manager.


from your photo of Larry, the white cat correct? He looks ok, just stressed. Cats go mentally inward with change and stress, it can take months for them to come back out. For eating: I would use canned pate style food that you can add a bit of water to. Stir until it's a thick slurry. This is the easiest way to rehydrate a cat. You can also use chicken baby food. The tiny jars that say just chicken, possibly with gravy. Add a bit of water to that. Most cats love it.

Copy pasta from Taylor

Okay, we're back from the vet and once again ensconced in a motel room.  They gave me some special food for both kids and a prescription for Taylor. Dissolve one half a pill in water and administer orally until gone. I was supposed to get a syringe but didn't. Guess I'm going to hunt down an eye dropper.

Doctor said to heat this food before feeding. Just keep an eye on them and call back on Thursday for follow-up instructions.

Had Ray's driver take me there and back, plus a ride to the bank for cash, to the dollar store for a bag of cat litter and box, and by Church's for supper. He charged me  $10 for all that.

I ate, figured out the the remote and watching Katy. Gonna try to catch a few winks cuz I'm beat.

Oh yeah, Taylor ate some of the food and drank water. Larry is at least interested now but I don't see him taking it. We're both in bed and he's getting a belly rub.

Hi y'all!

Got my hair cut today (finally). Wish we'd get more of that rain that the forecasters keep teasing us with, but so far, very little has fallen. Unemployment still has "pending issues" with my account, so I'm "not authorized to receive payment", so I'll be calling them bright and squirrelly tomorrow morning to find out WTF.

Glad to hear that Taylor Mental and his feline companions are doing better.

markoff_cheney - Dude. Bring all the good news, bro. We need it. We need to hear it. Don't feel shiatty talking about how you're NOT doing shiatty anymore! If there's any place to celebrate your achievements with people who aren't going to slam you (sincerely) for it, it's here. I mean, sure, you'll get your balls busted a little, but you know that. And yeah, talk to the doc. Get that brain back in balance, whether it's through talk therapy or chemicals or a combination of the two. You're not alone in that battle, and there's a lot of us that know firsthand what a biatch it is.

Funny, but the reason Chicago wasn't New York 2: Electric Sickaroo was that JB Pritzker saw what was happening and didn't waffle. There was some....discussion between him and Lori Lightfoot about schools, once Pritzker understood what the objection was, he worked with the city to make sure kids stayed fed.

We still had it rough, but nothing like New York City did, and it was mainly because someone told JB that every day would mean more dead, and he listened.

So, it was merely bad here.

For the record? Florida now has more cases than Illinois. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason this should be true. Florida had far more warning. They saw what happened here, and in NYC.

It's almost scary how many things that, if he had handled them with any kind of skill, intelligence, or ability, could have basically sealed the election for him by now.  He wouldn't have even had to cheat.

But every time he had an opening, an opportunity, a CHANCE to do the right thing, he has failed to do so.

Morning.  Mr. Dallymo has a minor hand surgery today so I took the day off to drive him to and from.  "It's just a local anesthetic, I can drive myself."  Uh, no.  I bought some new facemasks off of Etsy and they're beautiful, so I'm going to sport one for the waiting room.  "Who's that mysterious woman over there, in that fabulous mask, reading that September 2008 issue of 'Good Housekeeping'?"  It's sort of a demure floral print; if I really wanted to wow them I'd wear the one with the gorgeous blue and gold cloisonné look.  They wouldn't even know what hit them.

All of the continuing healing vibes to Larry and Taylor, and Hope is such a great knowledge resource.

[Fark user image 509x293]

I think you mean those japanese beetles that look a lot like lady bugs. I had a janitorial job and the General Mills Tech Center. They had a day care center for their employees (a nice one) but those beetles loved it too. So I don't like them I had to clean them up. Nothing for them to eat in there so they'd get in and die.


Well wen they're alive they bite so dead is good

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

Good evening, fellow misfits.

First attempt got eaten; retyping from memory so surely missing that dewy sheen of sparkling wit.

Steering of Son#1's car wasn't right. Alignment guy had it today and found left front wheel camber was way off (2 degrees negative of where it should be) and clearly something bent. Gonna be an expensive lesson for son to stop driving like a madman, to the tune of new strut, knuckle, hub, and tie rod end before it goes up on the alignment rack again.

Cultured: JulieAzel626: From Huffington Post:

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

Where do I have to move to vote for Tammy Duckworth?

I figured that there's got to be a new band nerds in the group that would appreciate it. I've played that recording for a few musical friends and seen them lose it completely when the bagpipes kick in.

I've actually done a couple of PDQ Bach pieces with choirs in the past. It's surprisingly difficult to deliberately perform bad music.

It looks like Peter Schicklele has posted a lot of his earlier pieces on YouTube.

Developments in the Russian Appeasement Scandal, proxy murder chapter:
The talking points came out throughout the day yesterday, and they are:
1. NYT published leaked info to an ongoing investigation, destroying the investigation's momentum.
2. NYT didn't do enough legwork to establish all the facts, so they got stuff wrong.
3. President Trump wasn't informed, because the intelligence is still being verified.
4. NYT is purposefully publishing lies/hoax/disinfo in an attempt to make Trump look bad.

Alright, so looking at the above, it frankly is a salad shooter of bullshiat that not only doesn't jive with what we know so far but isn't internally consistent either.

If there's an ongoing investigation, how is it a hoax? If it's an ongoing investigation, why has it taken over a year to not yet be able to establish any veracity to its claim? If it's important enough to be over a year's worth of investigation, why had Trump not yet been informed? If the NYT's information was cultivated from illegal leaks, how is it solely their fault and not the leaker(s)' fault? How can the story be simultaneously a serious and ongoing investigation and a manufactured trifling? How can the investigation be damaged with the public's knowledge? Are international bad guys gonna now hide their tracks? Would good guys in the administration be unable to give details to intelligence now?

The administration's response comes off as righteous indignation when you consider their statements in a vacuum, but when you lay out everything together, bullshiat salad.

[Fark user image image 400x545]

[Fark user image image 500x270]

Metallic wood boring beetle/jewel beetle. Family is Buprestiade. Not sure about species.

Are you an entomologist?
Or  GIS

I was in an entomology PhD program for several years. I was paid to identify arthropods for the state agricultural extension service. I never finished the doctorate (long story) but I learned a lot about insects and other wee beasties.

That's mega cool
*makes note*
I don't farkie people but I try to remember their expertise as a librarian it's useful


My taxonomic skills are rusty but not entirely lost. I identified all types of arthropods, but my research was on aquatic insects. I'm happy to help with insect/arthropod questions if I can.

Enjoy it. You went through your rough stretch and made good decisions after. Reap those rewards.

I'm slowly recovering after a series of unfortunate events and short term decisions. I don't resent your good fortune.


Still feels weird. I was lucky during the last one as well with a full time year round job at a ski resort, albeit still paycheck to paycheck in employee housing. 
All of my old service industry friends that never graduated are farked right now, a bunch are homeless or on the verge etc.

Nice

You got to see it in person at the Egyptian exhibition last summer right?

Yes, in Los Angeles, and the earlier tour a few years back when a tour came through San Francisco. I forget if that piece was also in the 1976 Los Angeles exhibit when I saw the Death Mask, though.


I should know I think so
Because I don't remember seeing it when I was at the Egyptian museum in 77 the stuff was still on tour then

So you are me 20 years ago. Talk to your doctor and be honest with them about what is going on in your head. Never was completely honest and the ER visits started. At least for me anyway.

James Carville thinks Trump is more likely to drop out rather than run for reelection and win.


How's he going to spin that?  He can't say it's his health, after all his lies about that.  He can't spin it as "I'm not popular", because of his idiot lies.  He can't spin it as "I got everything done", since there's a global pandemic, a recession, and nothing of his promises has been accomplished.

So unless he's going to run away saying "I'll go, but you can't prosecute me anywhere", it ain't happening.

Cultured: Sarah Jessica Farker: Cornelis de Gyselaer: Cultured: JulieAzel626: From Huffington Post:

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

Where do I have to move to vote for Tammy Duckworth?

I think she's CA
