Did any changes or improvements happen while you were away?
um....a few changes happened just this morning actually.
yesterday i had no contact re when i was being picked up today - so an hour before the office closed i messaged to office staff to ask...neither got back to me. i therefore messaged the driver thatn usually does weekday mkorning and he told me when pick up was...
this morning, five mins before pickup, Joe phoned to say a diffrent driver was picking me up 15 minutes later as the original onewas off sick.
the new driver messaged me to etll me he was going to be 15 minutes late....
I was working with a coworker thats good to work with, so things got done and we were only running five m inutes late - when at out last monring call, before the 3-4 lunch calls, we were told a new agency had taken over end of life care for the client we had trekked half an hour trhu traffic to visit.... so we were running early for lunch clie nts one of which we didnt have, and finished early!
so same chaotic mess....but in our favor today.
its also payday...and they did back pay me 5 of the 20 odd hours they owed - but cut me 6 hours short on the last month - sigh.
anyways im not on the rest of the day so 130-bedtime is free. im gonna bake a chocolate cake and potter in the poly tunnel methinks... i have a half day tomorrow too - pm n ot am shift. i will do some study tomorrow monring!

I hope you're completely rid of that evil sinus headache.
Yeah, a brief coma usually takes care of it.
Hopefully you got out and took some pictures for us to see :camera:
On weekdays, I just walk around the block a bit. Hopefully it will be warm enough on the weekend.

It still sounds like they haven't learned anything.

So now you're down 21 hours?

That's great. I think my Mother's working up to going out shopping, too. She'll probably just wait until my Sister has her second vaccine.

^With Lowes the garden section is semi-outside so it was a bit safer than inside stores. Even vaccinated she's not taking too many risks yet.

no, its because the NHS who pay for the carers, changed company.
Yummy! How did it turn out?
it didnt - as i didnt get round to making it - i wasnt hungry enough.
ahead today - watering at plot, study, and PM shift at work - just 4 client calls tonight.

^ no idea. basically, the NHS award care packages to clients/agencies for 2,4, 6 or 8 weeks - usually 6 - then there is n assessment. if ongoing care is needed, 9/10 it is passed to the local councils and they choose the care agency to pass it on to - OR the client may choose to go rpivate and select the agency of their choice. 1/10 the NHS arranges a new package, again for 2-8 weeks. thats how it usually gos...but...every so oiften it doesnt. one client was with an agency for just over a week the found us being assigned instead....now this client who is end of life was with us but sddenly got swtiched, with just days expected to live... i assume sometimes the agen cy backs out (say if they are short staffed, dont like handling that client, or closing down) and the N HS offer the client to a new agenmcy, but at other times it jut happens and nobody knows why.

wel i popped to the plot and did some watering - did a few loads laundry - did 1.5 hrs study - ate an erly lunch. now im about to do another round of scrabble then ore study....5 hrs to go before pick up for PM shift! only 4 client calls to do tonight.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Today I'll work on the Encyclopedia and have lunch at Arby's with Mike. That's about it.

We have a big controversy brewing on our campus. Two of our buildings are named after known white supremacists from the 19th & 20th centuries. Schools and buildings all over the country are changing names right now to reflect greater racial sensitivity. I think it's all part of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Our Black students have made it clear that they don't feel comfortable or welcome on our campus with those racists' names on the buildings. But our Board of Directors has made it clear that they don't intend to make any changes. So now's there's a big brouhaha with lots of protests and outrage. The Washington Post even did an article on our situation, giving us some pretty bad publicity. I'm curious what will happen.

Good morning!

I will be spending most of my day at the church. I will go in later than usual, so I can get a few things done at home, first. The head of the archive committee will be there from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, and I will be there from about 11:00 AM- 9:00 PM, so we are going to order take out for dinner. I'm going to help the secretary in the office, work on rummage, and then work the evening church service.

Yesterday, I went grocery shopping on my lunch break. I have everything for Easter, except the bakery I plan to bring to dinner. Hopefully, I can find time on Saturday to pick it up.

It's certainly a complicated issue, but I generally am hesitant on renaming things (with exceptions as I'm all for taking Jackson off the $20). Especially after Googling one of the people in the article (Douglas Southall Freeman) I couldn't find any major offenses in his background. I'm sure he probably had some dodgy opinions about things, but a lot of people do.

Howdy, howdy! :hello:

Got my groceries delivered Tues morning. All put away right away except for the 1- liter bottles of water. Working on that.

I went out this morning to take the trash out, and discovered that I had left my door unlocked since Tuesday! :eek: I'm amazed nothing happened.

Since Tuesday it's been the same old same old right along. Well, except for the unlocked door.

I hope you all have a nice evening.

I suspect it has more to do with getting likes on social media than any legitimate sense of moral outrage.

Freeman is quoted somewhere as saying Blacks are inferior. The question seems to come down to whether we're willing to excuse people for being a product of their times.

That's happened to me, too. I sometimes discover we've left our backdoor unlocked all night. It's amazing an axe-murderer doesn't come in and do his handiwork.

well we have been called back to him - the wife was not happy with the replacement care company and has asked for our agency to provide care twice daily until he passes - so he is back on the lists as a private client - for a few days, i guess there are agencies worse than ours out there.... :Ahhh: :(

today - covid test, shopping (w ith L delivering) thena possible hike with L.... :yes:

Probably she just wants familiar faces. It's a really strange time to make changes. I think the NHS just looks at numbers without considering the human element.

Good morning!

I spent most of the day working on rummage. The head of the archive committee is also on the Property Board, so he was there early to meet with an electrician. We both had to work the evening church service.

Today will be another busy day. I'm working until noon. Then I am stopping at the church, to hand out bulletins for the 1:00PM service. I'm not staying for it, as I have a 2:00 PM dentist appointment. This evening, I will have to go back to the church to work the 7:30 PM service.

This morning I have a few Zoom meetings and then I'm FINALLY going out to lunch again with my good friend George. We're both vaccinated, him fully and me mostly. So we're going to our favorite diner which we've done regularly for 15 years.

Remember not-so-long-ago when Boomers would routinely bash Millennials for ruining the world? Well the tables have now turned and I'm seeing a lot of books and articles written by Millennials about how Boomers have ruined the world. I long for the day when people judge someone by the content of their character and not by the date on their birth certificate.

That's part of the problem: These people can't comprehend change. I mean real change, not just the desire to alter the world to your ideals. I'm certain that people 50 or 100 years down the road will look back at us with distaste or even horror.

Indeed.

Well, if you look at the author's bio you see that she's an editor for The American Conservative and Right-Wing essayist. It's really not surprising that she would exploit generational conflict to undermine Liberalism. She's just using the ammunition that the Left Wing provides.
I long for the day when people judge someone by the content of their character and not by the date on their birth certificate.
Well, we could always call them the Civil Rights Generation and the Woke Generation, but it's still all about the Zeitgeist.
I hope you're right. Things do seem to be improving out there. Please tell me that there's a zero chance you'll have to experience another stressful January.
I calculate a .0028 chance that I'll still be there next January. :D

That's really true. Most people really don't understand how different the world was before the 60s.

You should be scheduled for vaccination really soon, Lupy. Most states are poised to open up shots for the general population in the next couple weeks.

Well, if you look at the author's bio you see that she's an editor for The American Conservative and Right-Wing essayist. It's really not surprising that she would exploit generational conflict to undermine Liberalism. She's just using the ammunition that the Left Wing provides.
Good catch. It makes sense now.

I'm really, really glad to hear this. You are and I will both be free men on New Year's Day :bounce:
