    Watership Down... poor rabbits... once a dog gets the taste of blood they will always go back. Can happen with chickens, rabbits, even lamb/sheep. Nature working its way to the surface.

    I had to wait months to schedule my kitchen redo (from the studs up), but once the job was scheduled, the contractor was there every day at 7 a.m. for 6 weeks.

    Just got a FaceTime call from one of my 5 year olds, from his iPad, telling ME in the kindest phrasing possible to get off Netflix so he could use it. I’m not even mad. It was precious. Technology, DAMN

    then the OTHER 5 year old called me from his iPad because he was jealous he didn’t get to say hi. Not a bad Sunday evening.

    Six weeks! Yowza. Im hoping to save most of the walls, the subfloor, and electrical. I’m not changing layouts of anything so it should save time. A couple hours tomorrow for a plumber, then a day for the floor and a day for the cabinets. Add a day or two because something will be out of whack. Hopefully by the end of the week the quartz template gets put in and all that’s missing for next weekend is my counter/sink

    six weeks sounds excruciating! But it must have been a huge undertaking if you had labor there every day for six weeks.

    My40 year old daughter called me this morning and we chatted for a couple of hours. I haven't seen her since Christmas. I miss seeing her.
    She usually travels for work and often comes home to visit.

    This is her with her boyfriend and their 6 pets. (3 cats: Charlie, Neville and Merlin, 2 dogs: Fenway and Wrigley and Cosmo the pig). They live in California.

    Not a problem. I just think education and the school system in general are incredibly important, not just for learning but for the wider health, wellbeing and development of kids. In the current circumstances there are no perfect solutions, and children are going to be disadvantaged to some extent whatever is decided upon, but as another poster said, the aim should be to ensure that the 'least bad' options are chosen and schools are given every chance and resource possible to succeed in providing effective learning and support until things return to at least semi-normalcy. No half-measures or just lazily relying on virtual learning or compromised on-site classes until Covid goes away, which could well take years. No politicizing. Be innovative, find best practice and ensure it's something that will be effective for the long haul. Our kids' futures depend upon it.

    depends. If you set your account to private (which i do, and i think most people who aren’t actually trying to be internet famous do) then people have to request access from you. If your account is not private then anyone can see.

    Published research from every major medical institution and Dr Fauci's own words for one. I believe he said something to the effect of "it will make you feel safe so wear them if you want but they aren't going to do much". Mask worshipers are as bad as anti maskers. The tune towards masks has undoubtedly changed greatly in the medical community in the past month or so and that has filtered down but has yet to bee backed up in any scientific research. Like I said masks are probably effective to some extent and everyone should be wearing them. But I'm not going to sit here and pretend it's some simple proven solution that is cut and dry. Cannot go to the extreme of masks are dumb and don't do anything and the extreme that they will save everyone from ever getting sick. Both sides are simply wrong. Small piece of a much larger puzzle.

    It's rough. They can't even teach our kids to read at grade level when they're IN school. Can't imagine how little gets done in the online "classrooms". A key in getting back to school will be how infectious kids are. Haven't read up on that yet, not sure what's out there. We know kids can test positive but do they actually have it and can they spread it to their teachers.

    If you have children or grandchildren and you wonder about sending them back to school and are concerned about their health if they go back, then read both sides by reading to the end. Then at this time, with what you know at this time, decide for right now regarding their health. Things might change either way with more info.

    hahaha sounds familiar so i can understand your pain. Records say 1900 on my house but that seems like a conveniently round number to me. I was up in the attic last summer playing with duct work for the AC, and parts of the attic floor are made up of two different roof lines. No clue how many additions this house has had over the years. I find coal in the cellar all the time, and the kitchen on the first floor has all exposed plumbing, which leads me to believe that it was originally used for coal production.

    The best part though, we can sit back after we are done and be proud of our vision and hard work!
