It's just the coffee talking....

 

 

It's New Year's Eve!

I haven't decided what I'm going to wear to the living room yet.  Heck, I might not even go.

 

 

 

 

#2020 has most people in a haze over what day it is anyway but the week between Christmas and New Year's makes it even more blurry.  A great example of this was talking to my daughter last night when she realized today was New Year's Eve and she had a small moment of freak out.  You see, she and her husband are having friends over tonight and neither of them realized today was New Year's Eve!  Rushed house cleaning and cooking will commence.

But wait, it gets better.  She then got ready to leave and said she'd see me Monday.  

I asked, "Don't you mean Saturday?"  She looked confused.  "No?  Why?"  "Oh, aren't you coming over for your birthday then?"  "Wait!  What?  My birthday is SATURDAY?"  

Oh 2020....  boy have you messed with everyone's heads.  We don't even know (or care) what day it is anymore!  They all just run into each other.

Poodle Exercise with Humans

 


Yes, you are seeing this correctly.  It's poodle exercise... with humans.  You're welcome.


I guess removing Abraham Lincoln's statue in Boston meant they think he was wrong for his actions? Just what we need; A pedophile with dementia. Be happy with $600 so we can send billions to other countries.

Ex-pharma insider found dead after intimidation, break-ins and fearing for her safety after she became outspoken against vaccinations and the pharmaceutical industry

A study of almost 10 million people in Wuhan, China, found that asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 did not occur at all, thus undermining the need for lockdowns, which are built on the premise of the virus being unwittingly spread by infectious, asymptomatic people.

It's just the coffee talking at 4:30 am.... another USPS update on the documents; and the state of Massachusetts has declared a 16 year old can have an abortion and parents don't even have to know

 

Woke at 4:30 am - partly because I've got things on my mind and a bit of stress going on but another issue right now is the placement of the moon.  This week it's in the exact, precise spot around 4:00-5:00 am to shine through the (closed) slats of my bedroom blinds and shine down on me like a brilliant spotlight.  

I thought I'd just 'ignore' it but that's not working so well so I'm thinking I may go all redneck trash this week and hang a towel or a sheet over that window until the moon has moved on.

Did you all read that the state of Massachusetts has just decided a 16 year old can have an abortion without her parents knowing or giving consent?  Ponder that over coffee for a bit.   

Do some research on parental responsibility laws and what parents are legally required to do for and are responsible for legally without huge ramifications and then think about the fact that the state now just gave a 16 year old kid the right to have an abortion (a medical procedure in which their child is undergoing) and her own parents don't have to be told or give consent. 

Never mind the emotional and mental issues that could arise from making such a huge life changing choice of killing a tiny human being - 16 year olds are still childlike themselves in their maturity and literally - their brain maturity.  This is a full 15 years before the human brain even matures.  (The adolescent brain does not have cognitive control, and is more influenced by emotions, rewards, and social acceptance when it comes to making decisions. Intelligence also peaks during early to middle adulthood, roughly ages 25 to 60.)

 My Dad's birthday was this week but because of the delivery issues the country is going through this month, there was NO WAY I was going to put his gift (a book) into the US Postal System the week before Christmas.  If I did, it may disappear completely or be delivered next February!  

So I waited and mailed it on Saturday morning - the day after Christmas.  I sent it the cheapest way;  printed and bound material/media rate, ($3.85 verses the $13 it would have been had it not literally been just a book - you can't have a letter, a greeting or personal message to send at the printed/bound/media rate).   

The tracking told me it would take 1 week for delivery.  I mailed it Saturday the 26th and it was estimated to arrive Saturday, January 2nd.  No worries.  It was a birthday gift but my Dad would appreciate me sending it the cheaper rate far more than he would have getting it on time (Monday).  It was traveling about 1000 miles.

And... it arrived on Tuesday morning!  It was the morning after his birthday so it was great timing.

What is funny-not-funny is that the signed legal documents we sent in the US mail on December 5th - traveling just 6 hours away - STILL HAVE NOT MADE IT.  

The documents mailed 2 day priority delivery on December 5th are STILL not delivered and it's December 30th.

(Far too late now... I'm watching for entertainment purposes at this point.  We gave up on the USPS on December 9th and mailed them overnight delivery with FedEx to get them there on time.  They did.  We are just watching now to see how long it takes the US postal system to actually deliver documents that were only traveling 6 hours away.)

A post in which I lost count how many times I said the word Fuck. (I was reading some news headlines)

Pennsylvania reported 200K more ballots cast than the total number of people who voted...  add it to the list of states LYING THROUGH THEIR FUCKING TEETH.

 



IT IS HER FUCKING SISTER!!  She should be removed as a judge for this. 



SO FUCKING MENTALLY UNSTABLE.....  Creepy, sleezy, scammer pedophile family... and the man is seriously losing his fucking mind.



The main media outlets are totally, completely covering up ANY AND ALL TRUTH of this incompetent moron... un-fucking-believable. 




Hello???  Can news sources please COVER THE FUCKING NEWS?  This is IMPORTANT.  This is our country.  Our laws.  Our fucking election for the leader of the country.  STEALING IT - blatantly and in your face fucking STEALING votes.  RAMPANT ELECTION FRAUD found in 2020 and yet the liberal media is silent...




Let's show how FUCKING STUPID PEOPLE HAVE BECOME!!!
I wonder if even HALF of college students polled, people on the street were polled or heck, even high school students taking American History were polled... would know that Lincoln FREED THE DAMN SLAVES.  We went to fucking WAR because he fought for the rights of blacks to be free.  And yet fucked up Boston TAKES DOWN this statue because Lincoln was white.
OMFG.






 

The bane of my existence... the perfect name for your baby? Huh?

 

A local resident has started to make 'cutesie' baby name/announcement signs you can hang on a wall or door.  Their little ad on social media drives me bonkers because the one the used is for a newborn little boy and the poor little soul has apparently been blessed  cursed with the first name of Bain.  As in 'you are the bane of my existence!"

Seriously... the parents never once heard that phrase of hatred?  Or thought about looking up Bain/Bane in a dictionary to see it basically means a person that ruins everything, a deadly poison, or death.  

 

Then again, perhaps they do know the meaning and "A person or thing that ruins or spoils" was in fact what they had in mind when they named their new little one "Bain"?  The bane of their existence.... that's pure love right there, no?

Tuesday... It's Just the Coffee Talking... again

 

 

Went to bed 1 1/2 hours later last night hoping that I'd be really tired and sleep really good.

Nope. Slept terrible.  Up at 1:00 and ended up reading until about 3:45 before I could get back to sleep.  Up again twice before finally up for good at 6:30 am.  So much for that plan.

I've got about 2 minutes before I've got to sprint into the bathroom and throw on some clothing, run my fingers through my hair and splatter some makeup my way and hope it sticks.  I also have 2 gulps of coffee remaining that is just barely warm enough to finish so I guess this is my way of saying, "Yeah, I got nuthin".

It's Just the Coffee Talking...

FRIENDS fan???  You may chuckle.  I did.




LOVE Thomas Sowell.  I want to have coffee with him.

 



Today, for Christians, it's the feast of the Holy Innocents... (the 14,000 babies and children under age two, historically killed by King Herod)

The Holy Innocents are few in comparison to the genocide and abortion of our day. But even if there had been only one, we recognize the greatest treasure God put on the earth—a human person.

   _____________________________________________

 

Herod “the Great” ruled as king of the Jews under Roman authority for thirty-three years, from 37–4 BC.

From the start, Herod proved to be an extraordinary political survivor. When civil war broke out in Rome between Mark Antony and Octavian, Herod first sided with Antony and his ally Cleopatra VII, queen of Egypt.

Then, when Octavian defeated Antony and Cleopatra at Actium in 31 BC, Herod immediately switched sides, convincing Octavian of his loyalty.

Following his victory, Octavian returned to Rome, where the Roman senate made him imperator, or supreme military leader, and gave him the honorary title “Augustus” (“exalted one”).

Historians mark this event as the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire, the transfer from rule by the senate to rule by a supreme emperor.

Under the patronage of Octavian—now Caesar Augustus—Herod’s position as king of the Jews was secure. For his Roman soldier part, Herod would prove to be a loyal subject to his Roman overlords, maintaining order in Israel and protecting the western flank of the Roman Empire.

What Herod Was Like

Herod was a strange mix of a clever and efficient ruler and a cruel tyrant.

On the one hand, he was distrustful, jealous, and brutal, ruthlessly crushing any potential opposition. The Jews never accepted him as their legitimate king, and this infuriated him.

He constantly feared conspiracy. He executed his wife when he suspected she was plotting against him. Three of his sons, another wife, and his mother-in-law met the same fate when they too were suspected of conspiracy.

Herod, trying to be a legitimate Jew, would not eat pork, but he freely murdered his sons! Matthew’s account of Herod’s slaughter of the infants in Bethlehem fits well with what we know of the king’s ambition, paranoia, and cruelty.

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. 17 Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:

18 “A voice is heard in Ramah,
    weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children
    and refusing to be comforted,
    because they are no more.”[d]

 

As a final act of vengeance against his contemptuous subjects, he rounded up leading Jews and commanded that at his death they should be executed. His reasoning was that if there was no mourning for his death, at least there would be mourning at his death! (At Herod’s death, the order was overruled and the prisoners were released.)

More modern times call for the 12 days of Christmas to 'end' on Christmas instead of begin; and it's been 1 year since I had what we now know is the China Virus - Covid19

Good Morning... 

Although historically the 12 days of Christmas starts on Christmas, in more modern times most of us are happier with the 12 days of Christmas leading UP to Christmas.  I honestly can't even imagine 'celebrating' for 12 days after because by the day after Christmas I'm pretty much ready to take the tree down, clean up, de-clutter and get on with life.

Of course two hundred years ago our ancestors didn't have retailers and social media putting out Christmas decorations, hawking their wares and starting holiday marketing in September and October!  When you have Christmas decorations and marketing targeting you even before Halloween, by the time December 25th comes around you are soooo over it.  So, yeah, the 12 days of Christmas used to be a time of merrymaking and celebration starting with the celebration of Christ's birth on Christmas but most people go back to work either the first Monday after the holidays (TODAY) or at the very least, next Monday so... yeah.

All that to pretty much say that my world is pretty much back to normal 'pre-Christmas' schedule today.  And yes, our Christmas decorations and the tree is down and packed away.

________________________________________

This week is also my ONE YEAR anniversary of our bout with the China Virus, Covid-19.   It was a year ago I finally was feeling better this week.  My husband, who got sick about a week after me, also followed a similar schedule and next week will be his 'one year' mark.  His 'feeling better' and breathing better happened around January 6th.

We had the China Virus before China actually admitted they launched this sucker on anyone... so when we got it (as well as my brother) no one knew what it was or what to call it.  It was just "A Virus" as in "Well, it's not the flu, and it's not Mono or Pneumonia...  so you've just picked up a virus...."   

I thought for sure it was walking pneumonia or even bronchitis but it wasn't... it was 'just a virus' and it kept me exhausted, fatigued and coughing my lungs out for the full 6 weeks after the initial 1 day of chills/joint aches and later, I lost sense of smell/taste for about 3-4 days.  The fatigue and coughing was the worst.  I would have to stand in the doorway to brace myself when I coughed.  When my husband went through the heavy cough stage I made him sleep on the couch as he kept me up all night.  LOL.

We both went on with life completely normal during it though... he worked full time (12 hours a day plus a 2 hour commute and sometimes 6 days a week as usual) and I too was going about life as normal.  It was just one of those crummy long lasting viruses to trudge through.  

But right at the 6 week mark we both recovered.  Our energy came back and the coughing calmed.  I ended up with lung weakness which I didn't really pay attention to until I realized I couldn't say a full sentence of more than 3 words without stopping to take a breath, and I couldn't sing.  I was trying to sing along to a song when we had a family gathering on the deck one night and realized I was basically croaking and couldn't catch my breath.  That was in July.

In November I started to do deep breathing exercises and forcing myself to breath deeply until the count of 10... hold it for 2-3 seconds and then slowly breath out, counting down again.  This made a HUGE difference and I'm almost back to normal on lung capacity again... exactly one YEAR after the virus.

I'm thankful we had the virus before anyway blew it out of proportion and made it a bigger deal than it is.  When we had it, doctors were level headed and calm because it didn't have a specific name and it hadn't been made into the fake 'pandemic' it is.  We got to have it when it was still a 'virus' like a million other viruses and people didn't freak out over it.

But yes... it's been exactly 1 year for me.

What is the Great Barrington Declaration? The Declaration was written by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Sunetra Gupta and Dr. Martin Kulldorff: As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

 

 

The Great Barrington Declaration

 https://gbdeclaration.org/

 

"The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection. 

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice. 

Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. 

As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e.  the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity. 

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection....."

Coffee Talking: Chit Chat about Wallflowers, Friends Lego Set and the PhotoShare Digital Frame (and a link to the Keurig SLIM Coffee Maker - only 5 inches wide for slim spaces)

Good Morning coffee friends!

I have been attempting to do a 'coffee talking' post for over an hour  3 hours now and just sit and stare at an empty editing box before clicking off to look at other sites, read other sites, check emails, etc.  In other words, I don't really have any topic on my mind to chat about and my mind is easily drifting elsewhere.  I've got a lot on my mind so it's easy to drift into my own thoughts instead of focusing on a post!

HOW ABOUT SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS:

One of my Bath & Body Wallflower Scent Plug-ins completely stopped working about a month ago.  It's probably five (5?) years old so it's... fine.  But I kept it plugged in anyway hoping it would suddenly start working again.  It never did.  I finally unplugged it this morning and threw it out. 

I got my son the FRIENDS Lego set for Christmas this year.  I was hoping he would slowly work on it over the course of a few days and it would be a fun project.  He finished it all yesterday in about 6 hours.  I jokingly told him to SLOW DOWN as he was putting it together; he said he couldn't, it was too awesome and he was having fun.

The PhotoShare Brookstone digital photo frame I got for Christmas (already posted about):  update would be, overall I love it.  It has a couple issues that aren't big but worth mentioning for anyone googling for the PhotoShare Digital frame...  1. It has to be plugged in and doesn't have a battery option.  If you want to hang it on the wall you'll have to get a 'cord cover' to hide the black power cord.  2.  The booklet makes it sound like there is a programmable option to have it turn off at night and back on in the morning.  There isn't.  The best you can do is the 'auto dim' feature that works with the built-in light sensor.  It goes to 'clock' mode when the room is dark and back to photos when it's light.  I'd like a button I could push to make the screen go black/off without turning off the entire unit, but it doesn't have one.  The power button literally turns it completely off and if you don't have your auto date/time set to your wi-fi settings then you have to manually reset it every time you turn your frame back on. But overall I'll give it 4.5 out of 5 stars because it's easy to use, easy to understand, the app is super simple to use and share; and the photos and videos immediately show up on my screen from all the family members who send them (and it chimes to let you know new photos/videos have been added).

And.... I give up!  Ha ha.  Another hour has passed and I'm just now sitting down at the computer again but my day is too busy to type.  So... this is it.  It is what it is.  Time to hit publish.

It's Just the Coffee Talking - random coffee talk at the kitchen table - UPDATE on the US Postal Service delivery for our 2 day delivery Certified Mail (mailed 12/5/20)

The package of documents mailed USPS "Certified Mail" with 2 day delivery on December 5th 
is still in transit December 26th.

I attempted to log in to request a refund and funny-not-funny... it was denied!  LOL.  Without explanation either.  Just a big red DENIED on the claim.

Needless to say I wasn't in a trustworthy mood to let them deliver anything... so although my Dad's birthday is in a couple days, I refused to send his gift until AFTER Christmas.  Hoping (?) that perhaps they can't use the 'we're so busy' excuse and it will actually get to him.  Better late than never. I will probably head to the post office to mail it today.

To that similar topic;  our town residents took it upon themselves to try to get packages to the right owners this year.  

With FedEx, UPS and USPS screwing up, stealing items and throwing them out of the truck in the middle of nowhere, most of the people gave up fighting to find their packages or return wrongly delivered and we started to see posts pop up on local message boards searching for rightful owners.

Other towns around the area have joined in as some of our packages have been delivered to random addresses in other towns.  One post on Facebook was someone who lives 10 MILES away.  So seeing a post "Does anyone know Jane Smith on Blue Bird Ave?  I have her package."  Or "Joe Smith, I had a large box delivered to my house today but it's for you.  I live at 2020 Blue Bird Ln.  if you want to stop and get it." 

Some of the packages left were empty boxes (stolen TV by the delivery drivers).  Some packages were thrown into the yards and ruined by rain or in one case, dogs;  who chewed up the contents, which were prescription medications for their child.  

A THIRD side-topic on this topic...  

I've mentioned over the past couple months the packages that have been delivered sliced open by the delivery drivers, rummaged through and if not anything worth stealing, they'd leave in the street, or by a curb next to a mailbox.  Some were tossed on the side of the road miles from their destinations.  Door bell cameras and security cameras have captured delivery drivers doing this... tossing boxes out of a moving truck, etc.   

More frustrating is when the delivery driver marks them DELIVERED on the paperwork but they literally NEVER delivered them.  Not only are people home during this time and no delivery driver even drove in the drive or by the house, but again, most of us have cameras.  We can SEE that no delivery was made!!!  But FedEx, UPS and USPS area taking no responsibility.

Instead, you are told "it says it was delivered.  You'll have to contact the sender and have them resend it or have them try to track it down or buy a new one."

SERIOUSLY.  This is what they are doing.  When THEY lost, mis-delivered or stole it.

Now here is a not-funny side topic to THAT topic.

Many of the Amazon, UPS and FedEx 'ground' delivery people (the ones doing the deliveries in the rented trucks, or plain white box trucks, etc) are on probation or parole.  Yep.  How is that for a fox guarding the hen house?  Someone I was speaking to about awful delivery issues this year  had remarked during a conversation (about the deliveries being stolen, riffled through or tossed willy-nilly on the road side) happens to be a probation officer and mentioned many of the people on probation worked as delivery drivers for these companies.

This reminds me of a friend who was in the military and she and her family had moved a long distance cross country relocation from California to Tennessee.  Their things had been gone through, many broken or disappeared completely and then some of their boxes were held for 'ransom' by the movers;  mainly the ones that held photo albums and family documents.  When they were trying to fight to get their items, they found out the military had hired prisoners on work release as movers!  This was many years ago and they were having a lot of issues so I can only HOPE that is no longer procedure.

I suppose it's time to close out this blog post...  I've chatted long enough about this topic, ha ha.  You know though;  it's just the coffee talking again.

It's Just the Coffee Talking Again... Delta leaves my son stranded overnnight at the airport on Christmas - Merry Christmas 2020 right? LOL.

My second coffee in hand, it's the morning after Christmas (Boxing Day) and the clock isn't yet even to any number that starts with a 7 so it's nice and quiet.  

Yesterday our first family member that had to fly home started his trek at 4:30 am.  

Unfortunately for him, the second family member that left 4 hours later, had finished all their flights, home, celebrated 'Santa' had came while they were gone, opened their gifts, ate dinner, played with gifts, watched a movie and went to bed even before the first member had been able to leave the 3rd airport of the day.

Yes, that poor family member got stuck in an airport... on Christmas Day. 

He arrived at the 3rd airport of the day just after NOON. His flight was at 4:30 pm - which was a bad enough layover but finally, after they boarded, they were told to get off the plane to wait while it was repaired; then told a part was frozen, couldn't be repaired and the flight was now delayed until 7:00 am the next morning.  

No offer of a hotel voucher, no meal voucher, no help at all;  just an announcement at 4:30 pm that their flight was now delayed until 7:00 am the NEXT DAY.  

Merry Christmas, right?

He was about 2 1/2 hours from his home and although they had a blizzard 2 days earlier, the interstates were clear and he had a really awesome neighbor/friend who although was at Christmas celebrations with their own family 3 hours away, LEFT to drive to pick up my son and bring him home so he didn't have to live and sleep in the airport for another 15 hours on top of the 12 hours he had already spent in airports and traveling.

His original flight is supposedly taking off right about now....  so final travel would have been about 26 hours to go about 1000 miles.  

 _____________________________________

 

Off to get more coffee and such... I'll be back though as it's Saturday, the day after Christmas, I'm not going anywhere or doing anything today that I know of (except maybe finishing picking up boxes and taking down the tree?)

It's Just the Coffee Talking... Christmas Morning and sooo quiet in the Coffee Haus! (Plus a link to one of my favorite gifts this year)

Good Morning!

Most of you are having your Christmas morning traditions right now.  We actually drove our family members to the airport this morning for their flights home!  Our Christmas was yesterday due to everyone's work schedules and flight availability.

We made our first trip to the airport this morning around 4:30 to drop off family member number one.  Later, we dropped the second group off around 8:30.  We all knew it probably be pretty quiet there with Covid fears and random city/state regulations keeping so many people from flying, but we still planned to leave enough time 'just in case'.

It wasn't needed.

Our daughter and her family pretty much just walked through security and then she sent a video... not a single soul in the halls... not a single soul in any of the gates.  

 

This sure makes flying with little ones easier.... but even so, we all can't wait until the fears of Covid have passed and everything opens back up and we can get back to normal.  Businesses are suffering and need to be open!

This morning everyone has either returned to their own local home or are on flights to their respective homes and our house is quiet.... messy and empty but oh so quiet.  We miss the hullabaloo!  But so thankful we all got to see each other.

This year one of our kids got me a digital photo frame... one of things you don't know you need until someone gives you one.  Ha ha.  I love it!  Easy to set up, easy to share the link to family members so now they can send photos directly to my frame from wherever they are.  I'll link to it below the post.  

We have leftover cookies and goodies that I'm not sure how to get rid of as we are anxious to get rid of all the unhealthy Christmas foods and get back to normal eating... if you were all here having coffee with me in real life around the kitchen table I'd be sending you all home with a huge tray of goodies!





One of my favorite gifts this year.....
