  1. Went another walk today for 28 minutes. Bright sun was a treat but windy & cold was not. At least I wore a proper coat and gloves.
  2. @IrmaJean - I did go for a walk. Friggin cold & I didn’t think to wear gloves but a 33 minute walk nonetheless 🙂
  3. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/music/2021/jan/21/glastonbury-2021-officially-cancelled-due-to-covid-pandemic 2021 Glastonbury Music Festival cancelled in UK ☹️
  4. That is a great idea Beth I should get back to walking some. Too often I tell myself there are other things that need to be done but that’s beside the point. Yes it has been a great winter so far weather-wise.
  5. Hi @Daveuk! Glad you still walk amongst the living and are enjoying your movies 😊
  6. I still suck at planning. Always something gets in my way. Either my own self tripping up or other people throwing up surprises. But I press on.
  7. Day off bored atm having coffee so thought I would babble a bit and update this. I have not had any beers this weekend, haven’t even felt like it. Throughout 2020 to I did drink beer, sometimes to excess sometimes not. Trying to cut back here in 2021. Been feeling tired and sluggish too often so that’s the motivation.
  8. @geronimo the problem is w/o the “get out of jail free” card it’s unlikely we would have any vaccine at all this soon. I am not defending the pharmaceutical industry, just stating the fact. Difficult situations rarely leave easy choices.
  9. Ok thanks. So about as close to mandatory as you can get w/o actually labeling it as such.
  10. @uptight outasight - do you believe that at some point the vaccine will be mandatory? Just curious of your opinion if you care to say.
  11. @geronimo sorry to hear that you are in a risk group. Hope things go really really well for all of us.
  12. Has anyone been vaccinated yet? From what I have read (from legit medical sources) there is a new strain, a variant, a mutation that is more transmissible than the original. I hope that’s wrong. I have a hunch this thing ain’t over. But then again I am wrong about a lot of things so maybe it’s good that I feel that way.
  13. Thanks Geronimo! Yes I get the same security message. Be well & stay safe.
  14. Hey everyone just wanted to say I’m going to take a break from the forum. The site is acting really weird and seems like a good time to go on furlough. Best regards and best wishes to everyone always ☀️
  15. I hear what you are saying there imgone. I wouldn’t put it quite in those terms but I would say talk is cheap. Anyone can say anything but backing it up is another story. I’ll add more later, have to get busy here. Anyone else’s “reactions” ❤️ Not working?
  16. Yep I get it. I know there are people that say positive thinking changed their life but it never worked for me and usually makes things worse. Objective, critical thinking works better for me. But hey whatever works for you go for it. Life‘s too short to quibble and understanding is the booby prize. The only thing I can’t take is when someone has no sense of humor about themselves. Those people I will show the door.
  17. @geronimo even Selfridges has taken a hit, although still in business. I only know them from @Daveuk mentioning them. https://www.thegrocer.co.uk/property-and-planning/selfridges-to-close-all-stores-aside-from-oxford-street-food-hall/649943.article

  19. Why more men on Twitter? Because women have better things to do. They have better options. They have children, families who care about them, they are welcome when they go places. Unlike people like me who score a zero in each of those categories.
  20. @IrmaJean no I have not called the doctor . I am hoping, as you said, that my body adjusts. But with passing day that hope fades. The one thing that I thought to do was to take the pill at night instead of morning in hopes that the worst of the side effects are gone by say 9am and I won’t be troubled by them during the daytime at least. I’ll let you know how it works.
  21. I was put on blood🩸 pressure medicine but am having awful side effects. Flu like symptoms, sinus pressure among others. Any thoughts?
  22. Oh I know I worked retail many many many years ago and one of the few things I’m truly grateful for in life is that I haven’t had to do that in so very long. It is the absolute worst. Being stuck between a horrible boss and an obnoxious public is completely miserable and hopeless. The only exception would be a young person doing it on summer break or for some other short term objective. At least they see a little reality up close!
  23. Wow November 12 was the four year anniversary of this thread. I started it November 12, 2016. I am still not good at planning. Now just because I’m not good at it doesn’t mean I’m bad at it, sometimes I think we forget there are designations in between good and bad. Basically I can be OK at it if I’m motivated, feeling decent (emotionally & physically), and have a bit of luck/fate on my side. I would still like to hear anyone’s thoughts and/or tips regarding planning on this thread. It doesn’t have to be right now anytime is fine. Anyway I hope everyone is doing OK. Th
