Just think, for most of you this is the beginning of your work week. For me? This is my Hump Day.
Yesterday was moderately busy in the morning, but slow in the afternoon. Mother's Day, remember. One of those holidays blown way out of proportion by Hallmark as a way to increase their revenue. Not that I'm against having a day to recognize what mother's do, but now every business in the world sees it as a way of making $$$$. I can remember when a simple card would suffice. Those days are long gone.
Update on the angelfish eggs. One is left, the rest have all been... eaten. They began turning white, which indicates a fungus. The parent fish are supposed to eat them when this happens to keep the fungus from spreading. Mine pair didn't. At least not until about half of them were white. When I checked the tank this morning, there was a sole egg hanging on the side of the tank. Of course, I've been educating myself on breeding angelfish and one sentence gets repeated over and over again: it may take them several attempts to get the process right. Just like people, except, from my working in retail I can tell you that some never get it right.
Playing Assassin's Creed, Valhalla, I was surprised at the depiction of so many Roman ruins left in the UK circa 875 AD. For some reason, I had always thought there were nothing but wood structures and forts. I was wrong. They have uncovered the remains of Roman baths in York. London, itself, was large enough to have a colosseum made of brick and stone that could seat 6,000. This was not some tiny out of the way colony. Here's some more info at Historic UK.

I saw this on NBC news yesterday, Larry Hogan, on Meet the Press, has said the GOP has turned into a circular firing squad. Funny, eh? This is because over the years, the Republicans have been constantly backing themselves into a tighter and tighter corner. They celebrated Loser #45, without knowing he is nothing more than the shrieking voice of the minority. Their numbers decrease. They are aiming at every one who doesn't kiss his ass. Oh, well.
My work week starts on Tuesday and ends on Thursday. And I'm getting used to it.ReplyDelete

We are always hiring, of course that means dealing with a constant stream of AssholesDelete
no thanks dealing with assholes. plus I cannot stand/walk for long periods (arthritis).Delete
Good Luck on the job hunt! We people of a certain age face a very quiet discrimination.Delete
I've been reading up on the SNP's latest push for Scottish independence. First time around I felt the sadness that they would vote out - but they didn't. Don't get me wrong, if I were Scottish I would probably vote for independence too, but as a Brit I would hate to see the British Isles all broken up. This time around, after being screwed by Brexit personally, I just think que sera. If that's what the majority of the Scots want then so be it. And then there will be Northern Ireland and then Wales. Sad but ... I guess that's the new order now! As for Roman remains in Britain, any town ending in the word "cester", like Cirencester, will have Roman remains. I just love all that stuff as I find it so fascinating!ReplyDelete
See, and my education led me to believe it was just a few wooden forts, sort of like our 'wild west.'Delete
Do you really think Scotland will break free? It seems so utterly complex to me...!ReplyDelete
And the Repugs do not realize they ARE in a circular firing squad. And I like it.
The Liz Cheney debacle is the latest in their infighting.
This time they'll do it. They didn't want to leave the EU.Delete
