Here we go. I wonder if we'll have abundant palindromes. Able was I, ere I saw Elba!

Good morning, everyone. :hello:

Well, the person who won my cell phone auction hasn't paid. I filed a case with eBay that the bidder hasn't paid. I have to wait a few days for the bidder to respond. Ebay will close the case if there is no response, after which I'll either relist it or offer the next highest bidder a second chance offer.
That's a pain in the neck. Hopefully they were just having a busy day or something. I wonder if you can get banned from eBay for not paying up.

We made good headway on the Encyclopedia project today. We whittled the number of entries from 434 down to 382. The goal is to pare it down to roughly 300.
I probably didn't make the cut again. :(
You are correct. My stepson spent his entire childhood alone in his bedroom, playing games on his phone. No wonder he's a mess. :no:
There's one of the side effects of mobile devices and social media.
This isn't supposed to be your stressful time of year. Now I'll really be worried about you in January :no:
I don't think there will be any non-stressful times anymore.
This is really amazing and I love it. But I'd need someone to build it for me -- unless some entrepreneurial person begins marketing one.
The woman in the video should have filed a patent instead of making the video. :lol:

GM Madi's leg might just be athrtitis...i dont know. all i heard was that she has to have her meds fed into her mouth then get a treat, and she was whining in pain all morning so got extra pats....
I hate to see animals suffer like that. They can't even understand why they have pain. :(

Happy Wednesday, everyone :hello:

Today we'll have a guest speaker in our class - the Assistant Dean of Diversity, Inclusivity, and Thriving. Yes, that's her title. Because we're talking so much about racial bias in class this year, she'll be able to enlighten us about all the campus initiatives in place to combat racism.

Yeah, if she's 10 years old, it could very well be arthritis. I'm glad the meds help.

For this edition, we're not including people, only leadership concepts, theories, & principles. So you're not only one missing the cut.

Habitual offenders can be banned. I checked my email last night, just as I was preparing to turn in for the evening, and voila -- payment received. I have the box packed and ready to go. Meanwhile, I'm after two more pocket gophers who keep burying my traps.

Good morning. :hello:

I got to sleep late this morning. Well, I didn't get up until 8:15 or so.

It's Wednesday? Hmmm...... Don't know what I'm going to do today. I'll figure something out. Got a few projects that still need doing.

You all have a nice day. :thumbsup:

The one developer on my team, who had been hospitalized for Covid, passed away this morning. Needless to say, we're all glum. I had a fear that if he recovered he'd be out until December, if that. This really sucks, because he was a wealth of knowledge, a great mentor, and a great guy.

Good evening, everyone. :hello:

My Mother had to go for COVID testing today, because somebody in her church tested positive. She may not know the result for a week or so, but the chances of her being exposed are very small.

Nope. He was in reasonably good health. I wish I could remember what his blood type was. Another guy and I are both Type A. Those with Type A blood are more susceptible to Covid. Those with Type O are the least.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your coworker, Gary. :no:

Good morning!

We opened up the office to see patients on Tuesday. So far, it has been busy, and crazy. I'm thankful I have a break, today. I have a facial appointment this morning, and an afternoon walk in one of the MetroParks with Sue.

Well, my temporary tooth was installed today. That was an adventure in discomfort. The purpose is to shape the gum for the permanent implant. I go back in six weeks for a follow-up appointment to ensure the gum is forming properly.

Strangely, I see a hematologist regularly and don't know my blood type. At my last appointment, I asked him -- after all, he's been drawing blood from me regularly for 7 years now. He said, "I don't know." I asked, "How do you not know??" and he said, "That's something we never check for." So when I get my annual physical in December, I'll ask my primary care physician.

That's true. It's not a standard test. I only know mine because it's on my Red Cross blood donor card.

^ Boston is unique in being composed of two real words when spelled backwards:"Not Sob". I can't think of any other cities that have this trait, can you?

If only Dallas had one 'l' it would be salad backwards. :no:

That could be fun, if it's not too cold.
cleaning my hiking boos afterwards would not be much fun.
But part of me thinks you may actually enjoy doing that
only if its 1-2 times a year. i would loathe wasting whole days pressing the refresh button on a computer.
todayshopping with L and sorting out my NVQ training - i have 2 pre-tests and a bunch of documents to upload.
