Re: The Biden Administration

So what’s the latest in the political hoopla in the US? I see Trump hasn’t been too vocal lately.. Trump is mired in investigations and lawsuits (both criminal and civil) against him. Who knows if anything will come out of it. He has also had some issues with his residency at Mar-a-Lago. He has not...

Re: Dog-Gate

Ted Cruz's 2024 presidential aspirations have been dashed! Not only did he abandon his state during a crisis to vacation in Cancun, he left his dog Snowflake behind in a cold house. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/ted-cruz-cancun-storm/2021/02/19/ce1dc25e-7252-11eb-93be-c10813e358a2_story.ht...

Re: Eye floaters

It's kind of similar to tinnitus in a a way. I wonder how people get used to that. My husband has tinnitus. It has gotten progressively worse over the last ten tears. Depending on the day, he may hear what sounds like crickets, steam/hissing, and/or ringing. Occasionally he may hear all three at on...

Re: Eye floaters

Everything has calmed down for the most part. At least I'm not see the dark spots/lines anymore. Depending on the light, whenever I look down I see what looks like a little puff of white smoke out of the corner of my right eye. It's not bad but every now and then it still startles me. It's hard to b...

Re: What's annoying you today?

Poor gas station etiquette (aka assholes at the gas station). I pulled into a small, very busy gas station with two aisles and four pumps (2 pumps in each aisle). One aisle is occupied with two cars, so I pull into the next aisle which is closest to the front door of the store/station. This aisle cl...

Re: Coronavirus

Sorry to hear about your friend KV. :gh:

People in my area take mask-wearing and social distancing very seriously. It seems so odd when I see/read about people in other areas being so cavalier about it.

Eye floaters

Does anyone experience having these freaky things? I had an abrupt introduction with them on Wed. They started out early in the day as small gray bubbles here and there in my right eye. Then the bubbles got furry. My husband said they were eye floaters. Around 11 p.m. I started seeing huge , black, ...

Hospitals are pretty full here, but we seem to be doing better than in other parts of the country. I've been coming across some pretty horrifying reports about California; it's like the way NY was times 10. :nyrexall: I think CA hasn't gotten as much nationwide coverage though since the past few wee...

Re: Are the streets becoming meaner?

^ There is an area in Boston known as Methadone Mile that has gotten progressively worse, specifically over the last five years when fentanyl became more and more pervasive. One contributing factor for the decline of that particular area is that a bridge connecting to a recovery center/homeless shel...
