  1. My ex neighbor, a wonderful old lady in her eighties, has been beset with medical problems for about a year. She underwent several operations and months of therapy and finally entered a nursing / therapy home. Due to covid19, she has not had her family at her side through the whole of this ordeal. last week, the home personnel told the family that if she didn't see them soon she was going to die - she had given up. They contacted Greg Abbot, the Govener of Texas and he granted them access, one at a time, to stay with her. Presently she is improving daily. Of course the bunkerhea
  2. I was right all along, this is just a virulent flu. Everyone is back to work, restaurants are open, casinos are open, life is practically normal. Covid19 is barely mentioned in the news. We had five new cases last week in our county, they were all in their thirties and didn't even know they had it. There were also three deaths, all in nursing homes, all in their nineties, all with multiple health problems and all would probably not have survived the olde thyme flu. However, take the qualifying info out and panickers like Obs would be locking you down ! It's no big deal, follow a cou
  3. There's a lot of hyperbole around political statements, but this one I can justify. Democrats are evil from top to bottom. Trump has announced that a vaccine will be available within a few weeks. Fizer and several other companies have invested billions of dollars ( please don't say, it's because of profits ! That's not the point) into a speedy vaccine and they have been successful. Unbelievable but what do Harris and Biden do ? They tell the American people not to take the vaccine, Kamala Harris said on tv that she will never take it cos Trump has probably poisoned it ! They are wi
  4. Obs, get out of US comments, you're just making a fool of yourself. Apparently you read US 101 and now think your an expert. You now accuse the lowest of American southern workers, who have always been conservative, of being anti black Abraham Lincoln who effectively freed the slaves, was a Republican, the Republican Party sponsored and voted in all of the Civil Rights laws, every Democrat voted against them. Check Nashville and every country singer, they are all staunch conservatives. Better start learning what's happening on your street, rather than challenge a real life American on
  5. Asp, California, sent out has several million voters, but the State Democratic Party sent out 20 Billion early voting ballots, lots to dead people, illegal immigrants and pets. Reports are that they blowing around the streets and some people are collecting them and have hundreds clasped in their hands ! The US postal service is a joke, they take three weeks to get a package from New York to Texas, Fed Ex does it in three days, They have already said that they can't handle it and the Democrats are saying that they are just trying to help Trump !
  6. That's ok Sid, I read the book when I was a teenager. My post was a little tongue in cheek, just to stir the pot and that question was my joke punchline.
  7. Do you know what a redneck is Obs ? A redneck is a southern farm worker who toils all day in the fields under a blazing sun and ends up with a.bright red sunburned neck, hence the name. They are country and proud of it, so the 'know it alls' mock them. Way to go, you have just sneered at the hardest working people in the land ! Highlights your ignorance of the US. This 'both sides do it is total bull** , only the loony left and the Democrats riot and kill. Police killed a guy two days ago, when they were called to domestic disturbance involving a black guy who was wanted for sexua
  8. Honesty. With no apologies to anyone ! The startling fact of life is that, throughout history, labor and its supporters, Democrats and their supporters, have been wrong on every single issue, they voted against Churchill for Gods sake ! There is no doubt, if you have any intellect and balls ( which eliminates Obs,), you are a conservative, if you are wandering in the wilderness, puzzled, you are a Laborite or Democrat. Just found a new book by Dale Carnegie, called how to win friends and influence people, anyone heard of it ?
  9. I'm glad I wasn't in the same trench with you in ww11 Obs ! Get a grip !
  10. Pray, pray, that communism/socialism, mob rule fails in November. Donald Trump is in the top three Presidents that the US has ever had and the dipshit Obama is next to last - and I have met him ! I have desparately hoped for all of my life that a true businessman, not a politician would show how a country should be run and he has done it. He doesn't care about polls, he only wants results and result that mean jobs and security. Obama pissed around for four years, while ISIS chopped off heads every night on tv. Trump ended that in nine months! And produced the greatest economy in US hist
  11. This is purely to give anyone with questions a, real life account of the effect of covid19. Our cousins families have just gone thru the covid19 experience. The two families live in two adjacent homes. The mom and dad, Sandy and Tommy, both in their late 70's tested positive for the virus and their son, daughter in law and great grandson also tested positive. Tommy and Sandy, who are normal older people, who don't exercise, but have no medical problems other than the usual cholesterol and blood pressure problems called their experience a " a pain in the ass". They had flu system
  12. Thankyou. Thank God for a last minute swerve north, which put us on the edge with only 70 mph winds. I own the wooded lot next to my house and it has several 80 ft high pine trees in reach of our house. If you want to know the value of a human life, in my case it's $10,000 to have four trees removed ! Again thank you.
  13. Came through unscathed ! My wife tells me that it was an interesting night, unfortunately I missed it, fell asleep in my chair and woke up at seven am - bourbon is a wonderful friend ! Beautiful day now, but got a days work picking up branches and debris, but at least our access is not blocked by any of the downed trees, so I don't have to break out the chainsaw. About three weeks ago an idiot backed into the rear fender of the Cadillac and it's been in the body shop in Beaumont, probably parked outside cos it's about complete. Unfortunately that's where the hurricane made landfall
  14. Thanks Asp, just been upgraded to a category 5, have rode out six 3 and 4s, but this is new. It's 3:30 pm and the first outer bands are lashing rain across the windows at 60 mph, by midnight they will be at 145 mph with accompanying tornados. It's the sound that gets to you, at anything over a 100 the wind sounds like a Stuka fighter is diving in the room with you and the thump thump of falling trees goes on for about eight hours, you just have to hope that they don't hit your home, cos no way a two by four is stopping a 80' pine tree - kinda like London in the blitz ! The sonabitches alway
  15. Six hours from now Laura, a category 4 hurricane, cat 5 is worst ever, is about to make landfall at Port Arthur, 80 miles south of us. It has 150 mph sustained winds . Our home has a bullseye on it, right in the path line. We have our windows boarded up as usual, everything stored and lashed down, and are desparately hoping that the 80 feet high trees surrounding us don't fall. Have six one gallon jugs of bourbon lined up on the bar and that should last until Friday as long as the house does. Thats the news from the colonies. Signing off.
  16. It is not my intention to insult anyone, but at times my frustrations with 'heads in sand' boils over. Confused, you are obviously an intelligent person, but you need to put the books back on the shelf and start considering crap outside the box, I fell asleep reading your posts on why Warrington had more cases......".. Obs, get off the 'politicians want to open the economy for political reasons' crap. For once, when your own personal fortune runs out, you may take the predicament of those who have been unemployed for months and more importantly, the family business owners who are never c
  17. This covid19 bull crap has got to stop ! People cowering in basements, sans qualifications, wringing their hands and denying reality. Don't forget, this epoch is being organized and run by the government - how often have they gotten it right ? This bug is likely to hang around for years, what are you going to do, put a bar in your basement and wait for death by natural causes ? You may as well just get a snotty nose and be done with it ! Testing is increasing daily and if you test a 100 people and 10 are positive that's 10%, if you test 500 and 50 are positive, that's 10%, nothing'
  18. I was being facetious Sid, to indicate that ads didn't bother me.
  19. I was a teenager when my tale took place, Sid, as a 'nipper' she didn't need much help with one egg and 1/4 lb joint per week ! She still made it stretch for three people tho. For the first time, today I managed to get my oven roasted potatoes just like moms, creamy inside and light and dark brown crisp and chewy outside. That's what brought back the memories.

    Moms

    My wife keeps me well fed, but even she agrees with me, my mother was something else ! As a teenager she was a helper in the weaving shed at Cockhedge Mill and she always appreciated that she escaped from it, but never lost the work ethic. She had to be the worlds best cook. Every day she produced three cooked meals, plus Cheshire cheese and onion sandwiches for supper. In line with the times, my father, myself and my sister would just sit, forks at the ready, watching the clock and waiting for the door to open - we had no interest in how the sausage was made ! All of this was achi
  21. Pretty much all social comment techno platforms and search engines are anti right socialist promoters. If a known conservative webpage is accessed on google, it will usually appear on page two, underneath all of the known virtue signal companies.
  22. At least it keeps the universities in business, plenty of defectors needed !
  23. As my buddy said, " I'm going to be sensible, but I sure as hell ain't going to be terrorized by it."
