    So far off topic that it’s the opposite, but still relayed in that it took until August 20th to find out....

    ... my daughter gets to go to Second Grade!! 🎉🎊

    I haven’t even told my parents yet. But I love my dearest friends and mukhamirs on the moonbeam Roads so I’ll tell you first. This has been my biggest stress since March when they shut the schools down. I’ve had no life, working and homeschooling since the quarantine you try to get her caught up with her class. Private tutoring....

    they still need to finish testing her for a learning disability. I suspect she’s dyslexic. But she’s made sufficient progress that she gets to stay with her second grade class.

    and now if you’ll excuse me, there’s clearly a lot of dust in the air as my eyes are clearly watering from that

      Such great news! Good parenting may have something to do with her success. 🙂

        People who wear masks, but don’t actually cover their mouth and nose. And do so defiantly.

            Interesting article over on, The Atlantic, website, an anecdotal tale about increased clumsiness in the age of Trump & Covid_19. It seems that the Age of Entropy, foretold, by Mike, Brian Aldiss, J.G. Ballard & others in, New Worlds, back in the 1960s, is now fully upon us.

              Indeed. Went to see, Black Panther, with oldest daughter, so she app'd me yesterday morning to tell me about Boseman, although I'd already read about his dying, online. We both thoroughly enjoyed the movie. To realise that he'd made it & several other movies whilst being treated for cancer, undergoing surgery and chemo, just boggles me. What an actor, what a guy!

                I would guess that the late greats and Mike wish they hadn’t been so prescient.

                  Five hurricanes in the Atlantic because of warmer waters (including one making landfall on the U.S. Gulf coast today or tomorrow) and the U.S. west coast on fire because of drought, yet a significant portion of the U.S. population still doesn’t believe the science on climate change.

                  That’s a three for one post. 🙄

                    Hurricane clean-up. If I see another downed branch I’m going to melt down.

                        Well, I voted this morning. I knew what to expect but it still didn't prepare me for the disgust and dread I felt just looking at the ballot. Never in my adult life have I been faced with such dissatisfaction with our electoral system. Only our state Representative and State Senate Offices had vote-worthy candidates. All other offices were seething pits of ineptitude.

                        So, 2020 Sucks Because...we (the U.S.) have been forced to act on idiocy.
