  1. Yum, I'm going to give that a try, I eat a lot of salad and I love coleslaw. I might try it without the sugar and see if it makes much of a difference. Thanks tallguy!
  2. oh WOW ... so beautiful but I guess not so welcome to those who have to clean it up somehow.

    stormy that looks like my old Rover ride-on mower, it was so good, never missed a beat
  4. The ingredients tell me that could be really delicious, I am wondering why, especially as it's ground beef, (not cuts of a tougher beef such as gravy beef etc.) it needs to be cooked in a slow cooker on high for 6 hours, I'm thinking it would be a burned mess by then.
  5. Below is the personal "journey" of the daughter of the friend of my cousin, her name is Megan. This young woman lives in the UK and is in her 20s and she got covid last year. She posted on her Facebook what her life is like these days and some obstacles she's facing due to the after effects of having covid. This does not apply to everyone who gets the virus, some die, some recover, but it is known that for many, there are health problems that will continue for years due to the damage that the virus can do. I believe everyone should read it and be aware of what is possible. "Yesterday was an anniversary, of sorts. 6 months since I was tested positive for Covid-19. 6 months of being sick. Of learning about the virus along with medical professionals. Of finding my new normal. As we move towards the winter months, on the brink of a second wave, and lockdown looms large, I wanted to speak, again, about how we need to be taking this seriously. I wanted to talk about how I check my o2 levels frequently, monitor my heart rate constantly, take inhalers and medications to try and soothe my scarred and tired lungs, relieve the pain in my joints, boost my immune system. I can’t leave the house without a walking stick now. I was approved for a blue disabled parking badge, forcing me to acknowledge my new limitations. I sleep for hours at a time and still feel exhausted, completely debilitated by fatigue. Symptoms come and go, and even now, six months later, new symptoms are affecting my everyday life. I still can’t work, I still can’t be spontaneous. Even taking a shower is a carefully planned and considered event, and - depending on whether or not I faint in the shower - anything up to a couple of hours is needed to rest afterwards. I am still in my 20s. I was healthy before I caught covid. Now making a sandwich feels like an accomplishment. I know that lockdown feels scarier in the winter, that longer evenings and colder days feel lonelier. But understand that covid hasn’t gone anywhere, and the ‘two week and it’s done’ narrative isn’t always true. Be careful. Be safe. Be responsible. Wear your mask. Look after yourself and your loved ones. Stay healthy."
  6. You're going to hate this, but I have to say it .. China did it, and brought their numbers under control and with strong lockdowns and health initiatives and they have a population of over 1 billion. The vaccines apparently lessen the symptoms of those who get covid-19 but they are saying that people can still get the virus and I'm unsure if they can still pass it on to others. This is of course, similar to how other vaccines work. Our Federal Govt worked with the States and together they made a plan that appears to work, although it's constantly evolving as new things are discovered about this virus. I don't know what the answer will be eventually and how our world will change, but I do see huge changes and countries like mine and other smaller countries where they have managed to get on top of it (for now) will probably stick with the procedures they have in place as they seem to work. It's interesting too, that the people who were complaining about lockdowns, politician bullies and how it is "only the flu", are now more accepting of situations where a 3 day lockdown is called due to a case being diagnosed in an area. We are learning to work around the last minute restrictions, border restrictions and now and then a lockdown.
  7. Lockdown would help for a start - it's proven to have worked in other countries
  8. Unfortunately I get the impression there are many others who feel the same, and unfortunately because of that, I think there will be a lot more deaths and illness until someone sits up and pays attention and cares enough to take drastic action.
  9. Do you really think it's foolish instructions? When 400,000+ people have died in the USA? Do you think that perhaps the news sites are trying to get into peoples brains that this is very real and people need to take notice of what is needed to do in order to save lives?
  10. John Rambo I have to ask, because nobody else is asking, but is this going to continue every day for the rest of the year?
  11. They do show recoveries, on that update it's 1,297,294. I think our stats show National and then breakdown by States. I think also that the recoveries are the ones to be watched for the future, because apparently there aftermath of having covid can be a whole lot of health problems for life (or what's left of it).

    So pretty and so quiet
  13. A friend who lives in the town where we used to live in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, sent me a photo today of the annual "darts competition" I thought you might enjoy seeing it
  14. Merry Christmas to you and the coders, chain.
  15. Ohhhh very cute, we had kangaroos come into our yard when we lived out of town on acreage, they were not at all bothered by us provided we didn't get too close.
  16. Very pretty, does it indicate a warm day to follow ?
  17. That looks nice and neat and tidy chain

    Grocery run

    That's really scary LOL
  19. Ohhhhh she's sooo lovely, and cute and cuddly - on wait that's PsychoKitten ! I will need to edit what I said 😅🤣😂
  20. John, how about keeping all your Christmas posts to one thread and not flooding the board with seperate posts. It would be easier to read and follow if you keep them all together in one place (and appreciated by forum members too) .. thanks
