    Who Won't Opt For The Vaccine

    Interesting. Maybe we had the same shot? I had some sort of shot while in the military - -mid 50's. Of all the members of the ship's crew, I was the only one left with a bad reaction. Joints froze up and I had to be carted off to the hospital in an ambulance. Can't recall what the shot...

    Oregon becomes the first state to decriminalize hard drugs like cocaine and heroin

    I guess your info will limit my driving ability after a stop at Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks. Have to call someone to come and get me if my mind isn't altered to the extent that I can't operate my phone. 😀

    Oregon becomes the first state to decriminalize hard drugs like cocaine and heroin

    Instinctively knowing something is wrong concerning your child

    We could also wonder if the child (depending on age) knows there's something amiss with their parent (s). What does the child make of parents arguing , cursing, displaying violent behavior towards each other? Isn't this what children see in many cases of parents separating and/or divorcing?

    Prince Charles, a fascinating insight into his childhood

    Holy crap, just counted all my cars

    Registered my first car, a 41 Mercury, back in 1951. Since then I've only had 14 vehicles. My 2 favorites were a '70 Ford F250 and a '63 Split window Corvette. The truck was new and the "vette was 2 years old. Kept that one for 13 years.

    Waiting In A Line For A Great Meal.

    I have to add that my wife is a great cook. Reads and enjoys it almost like a hobby. As for me, I can put together a terrific can of Campbell's soup, even with crackers, but change the brand and I might falter.☹️
