    I feel so sorry for my mominlaw. TV receiver box went out, (Xfinity). Called Sunday and they are mailing another box. Called today and it was delayed due to covid should be here Monday. She is alone with pretty much TV and books for entertainment. Offered to have her come up her tomorrow and binge TV, get meals, etc. She said no. Oh, well. Cannot kidnap her Guess I should not feel so sorry for her.

    It's not just people who can be weak and sniveling, but institutions. Pandemics have been predicted for a long time but health care executives put their money into shareholder profits and exorbitant executive compensation and fancy building projects and concierge services to attract patients for elective procedures. They could have been buying PPE. Now they want the government to rescue them, not only with supplies, but with financial bailouts.

    It's curious that businesses that preach the value of having emergency funds and saving money and paying the bills on time make billions of dollars and pay almost no taxes on it -- and can't go more than a couple-three weeks without looking for a bailout...

    the thievery didnt take place on my land. I don’t know exactly where it did take place, someplace between our box at the alley and the relay station.
