    A federal warrant has been issued for my arrest! :-O

    You really should visit Donegal, it is special. The history, views and people are amazing. We did get lucky, and out of 10 days, only had one day of rain. We were there less than a day, and the wife was talking to a neighbor about an apartment for sale in the complex where we were renting a...

    Dangerous Pokémon Cards

    Never was a sports fan and even less so today for so many reasons. But, for some reason, I bought baseball cards, though I never really played the game and watching it is like watching grass grow. I did put the cards to make a racket on the bike spokes, so maybe that is why I bought them in...

    A federal warrant has been issued for my arrest! :-O

    Have you been to Donegal? We visited a few years ago and want to go back. Absolutely stunning place and the people are wonderful. Met two American men who had married Irish woman and moved to Donegal. Told my wife she had better behave. :eek: :D Sooo, names...

    A federal warrant has been issued for my arrest! :-O

    In NC, at the county jail. :D There is a magistrate at the jail to verify probable cause for an arrest before a suspect is given a place to stay or bailed/bonded out. Later, Dan

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    I have read that but one is supposed to have swollen lymph nodes if one had the virus previously. I did not have swollen lymph nodes for whatever that is worth. At work, 81% of us have reacted the same way to the vaccine. It is possible we were exposed to the virus but none of us had...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    If the reaction was just pain from the shot, that is a who cares. Being laid out in bed for days with a fever, chills, body ache, etc., is something else. This is in the top five or so of me being sick. Worst was Whooping Cough, which I have been vaccinated against, many times, but still got...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    I had the worst headache ever from the first shot but just a so so headache with the second. It was the fevers, chills, body aches, etc that was so bad with the second shot. My average heart rate has not returned to normal and is still up a couple of points. Supposedly, swollen lymph nodes...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    That is what I have read, heard, and experienced. What bothers me is that I have never, ever, ever reacted to a vaccine like this before. Why is this vaccine so bad compared to the gazzillions of the vaccines I have gotten? :unsure: I don't expect you to answer that question. :D Later, Dan

    From Computer and Information Technology Occupations : Occupational Outlook Handbook: : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and it has been like this for decades. If one can get a computer science or related degree, the jobs exist and there are growing companies looking for skilled...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    A family member got the second Pfizer shot yesterday and today has fever, chills, etc. Talked to a guy last night who said both Moderna shots took him down. Was about to ask for symptoms when the conversation went elsewhere. The guy is in really good shape too. Later, Dan

    Inflation

    Absolutely. The Tech companies only want H1-B visas to lower the cost of labor and to exploit the H1-B visa holder. Saw this well into last century when I worked for a UK company here in the states. Most of the employees were from the UK, but their wage increases, if any, were lower than US...

    Power Line to my house was broken

    I thought I had mentioned this up thread but maybe I only thunk it. :unsure: :D Years ago they were replace power poles in town, and before they put the poles in the ground, the poles were just laid out along the side of the road. I noticed that all of the poles had a copper wire running...

    How did your knee replacement go?

    Search TBN for previous discussions over the years. There have been some long conversations that might be helpful. Members of my family have had knee replacements starting back in the 1990's. I would not call any of them successful. Best that can be said is maybe less pain. Walking was...

    complaint with restaurants (which dosen't make sense to me)

    Our first restaurant in China was kinda dingy due to all of the smoking but it was popular with the people we were visiting. The place was packed with people. We would walk by this place at least twice a day and on the sidewalk they had rabbits, chickens, and ducks, you would pick to eat...
