Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Pigs in Shit

The first half of yesterday was semi-busy at work.  People have started the installation process for carpet.  Mostly, I think, using the stimulus checks handed out by the government.  Unfortunately, this is not what those funds were to be used for; one single purchase does not help grow the economy.  I sold measure to 2 couples, both seniors, both want Berber carpet within 5 minutes of each other.  Berber is not very popular.  It's not soft, is bad with kids and pets.  You can get pulls with Berber carpet.  Still, that's what they wanted.  Both senior couples were looking for durability.  Both are looking to sell their homes.  I wanted to tell them putting in Berber carpet limited their future buyers to older couples without grandchildren or pets... especially cats.  I didn't.
According to Governor Abbott of Texas. shutting down the state is a "last resort."  Hospital ICU's in parts of Texas are near capacity thanks to total mismanagement.  You see, they believed the Idiot Jerk in the White House.  He told them Covid 19 was going to go away when the temps warmed up.  They know he lies.  They also say "that's just the way he is."  They're going to crash their own economies.  Ouch.  Right now, the Idiot Jerk leads Biden in Texas by 2%.  That's going to change because... "that's just the way he is." (Can you hear my evil laugh?)
Biden is coming to Lancaster, PA this morning.  For those who are interested, we pronounce it Lank - Ester, not Lan Cast Er.  Boy, I'll bet that shocked your world.  Lancaster is pretty much the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country.  In Central Pa, they were hit really hard by Covid 19.  Without Obamacare, the Amish have no health care.  Of course, the Idiot Jerk in the White House and his Republican ilk have nothing against health care, as long as none of their tax dollars go to support it.  They're happy as pigs in shit as long as you can pay for your own hospital care.


This is why Biden is going to talk about Health Care in a community that was ravaged by Covid 19.
And every since Jennifer mentioned her school getting an aquarium, I've been toying with idea of setting one up again.  I've probably had active fish tanks for... oh, thirty years of my life.  Right now the question, if I get one, is size.  Do I want to go big?  Or bigger?

  2. I'd go bigger with the aquarium if possible. As strange as it may sound, more water volume is easier to maintain and more forgiving of putting off water changes when life gets busy. What sort of aquarium are you thinking of setting up? A new tank is exciting!

    Re: our new school tank....my husband is having trouble sourcing aquascaping materials for it. His buddy Jimmy at the wholesaler in Atlanta says that they're experiencing breaks in their usual supply chains due to Covid 19. We're hoping to find some good large rocks and wood for it, but initially it may be a rather plain tank. We can't use what we can't find.

    1. I understand, I've been looking at tank availability and inventories are rather dismal.

  3. It's encouraging to hear that Biden is close to Trump in that "great red state" of Texas!

    1. That's because Republicans every where are beginning to learn how stupid they are.

  4. I guess the size of the aquarium depends on how much of you stimulus check you have left :).

    I used to live in Bucks County, Newtown. I had berber for many years until I got new carpet last year.

    1. My stimulus is paying off my real estate takes. Berber's not bad, my dog's nails would probably shred it.

  5. Big is good. Bigger can be overwhelming. I’m talking from experience here.
    And people don’t understand how much Cheetohas tried to do without the ACA. It was the Repugs’ dream. I hope uncle Joe does well. I’m still worried about voter suppression and the electoral college.
    Any state who did not close, opened too soon or disregarded sheltering in place and masks can play the tiniest violin.

  6. We have a Lank-Ester here, too, and I just learned last year NOT to say Lan-Caster.

    1. I was never a Burt fan... not Gregory Peck, and his name is easy.

    1. Actually, they are out in the community quite a bit. Some of them are farmers, but quite a few are building contractors.
