Seriously? They take in so much money and do not have that many expenses do they? I'm at a loss for words on this one.

Twas the month before Christmas

T'was a month before Christmas,
And all through the town,
People wore masks,
That covered their frown.
The frown had begun
Way back in the Spring,
When a global pandemic
Changed everything.
They called it corona,
But unlike the beer,
It didn’t bring good times,
It didn’t bring cheer.
Airplanes were grounded,
Travel was banned.
Borders were closed
Across air, sea and land.
As the world entered lockdown
To flatten the curve,
The economy halted,
And folks lost their nerve.
From March to July
We rode the first wave,
People stayed home,
They tried to behave.
When summer emerged
The lockdown was lifted.
But away from caution,
Many folks drifted.
Now it’s November
And cases are spiking,
Wave two has arrived,
Much to our disliking.
It’s true that this year
Has had sadness a plenty,
We’ll never forget
The year 2020.
And just ‘round the corner -
The holiday season,
But why be merry?
Is there even one reason?
To decorate the house
And put up the tree,
Who will see it,
No one but me.

Changes once you hit 60 or 70 ...

I asked a friend who has crossed 70 & is heading towards 80 what sort of changes he is feeling in himself? He sent me the following:
1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.
2 I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.
3 I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.
4 I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am.
5 I stopped telling the elderly that they've already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past.
6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.
7 I give compliments freely &...

I Love Power!!!

This afternoon my wife and I dropped our daughter off at college. On the way home on the Interstate we looked up the road and saw a big black billow of smoke in the air. My wife asked me what it was and alls I could say was, "somethings on fire". We were right close to downtown St Paul and when we came over a knowl or hill I saw what it was, A big black steam engine, darn I wished I had my camera. It had about twenty passenger cars on it and the black smoke was just puring out of that thing. I know this thing doesn't come close to the power of today's engines but seeing that thing took me back to the days of the steam engines, well what my imagination would be anyway. But think about it, in them days that was a powerful machine. This was not one of the little ones but one of the larger ones I have ever seen. I would like to find out more about that one and will have to do some research as there must have been some city party or something going on. I just want to ride it...

Any plans for a "Sports" forum?

I had a couple sports related topics to throw out but don't know where to put them.

A NASCAR post in particular. Does it go in the "Open Forum" or "Politics"?

Battery chargers

Quick question.

Is it OK to leave battery chargers plugged into the AC outlet when there's no battery on the other end being charged?

I'm thinking of chargers for things like:
Cell phone
Cordless drills
Kids ele. games (Gameboy...)

I always unplug but know many that don't and they've never said they had a problem.
