    I seem to bruise easier as I age so I'm going to look into this Arnica Montana - thanks for the info!

    So sorry Happy. Ugh! In the past 7 years I have fallen 3xs. Broke my finger, broke my wrist and had a concussion. That time I had a headache for 2 weeks. The 3rd fall was very uneven sidewalk. Now I walk looking down.

    So sorry, Terry! I can't imagine breaking anything, and feel grateful and lucky that I haven't (yet! LOL). Am really sore this morning, but expected that. I am definitely going to concentrate more on looking down!

    We have a lot of crappy uneven sidewalks so I have learned to be careful.

    Around 0015 last night, cat decided to jump onto our fireplace mantel. Normally that isn't a big deal because there is usually nothing on it. But I had decorated for Fall so it was full of decor. Made a big crash so I had to get up and make sure she was ok and then put it all back up onto the mantel.

    The ignoramauses that walk amongst us leave me wondering what next. Within the past week someone told me the worldwide shipping meltdown was caused by the extra $600/week unemployment benefits we got here in the US last year. I told her to just keep on thinking that because the complicated explanation would be too much for her wee brain to handle.

    What is the damn secret to making CAPTCHA Entries on web forms work? I can NEVER make then work. Even when the letters are very clear I cannot make them work. I use uppercase when it shows an upper case is that a problem? I just tried seven times in a row to make a CAPTCHA Entry work on a web form. Letters were in simple to read block letters. Some were bold and some lower case, some greyed out. I tried representing the grayed out letters and not including the grayed out letters. It didn’t work. I tried using uppercase and lowercase to represent letters in uppercase. It didn’t work.


    This seem to be a fairly straightforward CAPTCHA box to replicate.I don’t even try any more when they’re in cursive form because I know those will fail. But honestly I don’t think I get them right ever.

    About a quarter of the time I don’t get the ones right about “mark all of the stop signs “or “mark all of the busses”

    The push to get most kids to go to college, with the result that I cannot find an electrician to come out to my house.

    How is it beneficial to society to encourage people to wrack up huge student loan debts they can't pay, then develop student loan forgiveness programs to have the taxpayers pick up the tab for these degrees, some of them completely useless, when we could be directing promising talent towards trades where your training actually translates into a job that provides concrete benefits to society?

    From what I hear, trades are in high demand this year due to homeowners who have an opportunity to get renos done on their property because they cannot spend their money in other recreational activities. Materials needed for all these home reno expenses are in limited supply due to the demand.

    That said, I agree that trades are a good choice for a career. One young neighbour who completed his tradesman in-class sessions was having a hard time finding a business to give him the apprenticeship needed to complete his training with the covid impacting the business activities. Strange times!
