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 &...

Who would you want to spend a day with?

Given a choice (the whole jeanie thingy with one wish) of anyone dead or alive for which you could spend a day:

Who would it be?
What would you do?
Where would you be (and it could be in their time or yours)?
Why did you pick this person (and the other stuff about what you would do and such)?

EDIT: Oops, just thought of something. Depending on responses, this may need to be moved to the xxx section of the forum.

I think I must be the only night owl at this site. I have noticed the volume of posting and online member/guests goes down.

I have no idea how this is relevant to anything whatsoever, but I jsut thought I would mention it.

(Wow, I'm really enjoying my whiskey tonight :beer: )


Calling up NEW POSTS only

I visit a few forums, but hope to be spending most of my time on this one from now on. But the one thing I like on some other forums is that I can simply set a bookmark for the most recent posts. On this forum it would be the New Posts link. But when I set it as a bookmark it only works for a while, but it seems to time out??? After about 1/2 day it doesn't work anymore. Any way to change that so I can just pull up all the new posts in chronological sequence?

Lowest I saw yesterday was $2.79 a gallon.
