The whole $600 a week frustrates me.  That is more than a lot of folks earn working full-time throughout this pandemic.  Essential workers have been working through it all, earning less than those sitting on their behinds.

I love eggs.  I like them scrambled, boiled, over easy/medium.  I love an egg salad sandwich.  I like to add cheese to my scrambled eggs.  Love eggs with a side of bacon.

I used to like checking Pinterest for ideas.  I like DIY projects.  The ads do bug me, but I also notice that sometimes I can't get to the actual Project when I click VISIT.  That makes me more frustrated when I can't find out more about the project I am interested in.

I am sorry the young man died.  This virus is deadly whether you choose to believe it or not.  Wearing a mask is an inconvenience.  I don't like to wear mine, but the virus is to deadly to not heed the warnings.

Drinking dill pickle juice works for me, but I just get regular headaches

I've heard that dill pickle juice works too!  I haven't had a headache in a long time, but think it would be worth a try to drink pickle juice.

Here is my local forecst:

Excessive Heat Warning in effect from 1:00 PM CDT until 8:00 PM CDT.

* WHAT...Dangerously hot conditions with heat index values up to 109 expected.

I didn't think it was so bad yesterday.  Of course, I was not working outside in a bean field or any construction site.  I was outside most of the day, but in the shade. 

When it cooled down, we were a bit nervous that we'd get some rocky weather....wind, hail, etc.  But no foul weather came!

Off-Topic / Re: Saving money on your electric bill

Quick update.

My electric bill from 6/3-7/2 was $150.

When i receive bill for 7/3-8/2 it should be about same.Hopefully it is less and i will know device was working.Again i will post results.

Interesting.....but I am quite skeptical or hesitant to believe that a $30 device can lower an electric bill.

I've seen something about a DIY Solar Generator that is supposed to help.....so far, I haven't investigated the idea enough.

How infuriating!  The nerve of people to steal from others.  So far, Amazon or whatever merchant we've used, have put our packages in the back instead of on the front step which is visible from the street.  I think that really helps for us.

What a heart breaking story.    The helplessness of the girlfriend to not be able to help her boyfriend; not being able to be with him....so sad.  For the boyfriend, how awful that he was sick yet not "sick enough" to get treatment in the hospital. 
What a great guy to send the letter intended for her future boyfriend.  Tears are rolling.

Geesh!  The nerve of some of these people!  I always get out of any survey that wants to get any of my personal information......not worth the reward payout from a survey.  I don't do webcam surveys either.

Not sure if "THEY" (whoever "THEY" is) really is listening somehow to everything we say or sites we visit online or on our phones.  Seems like I get ads/promos related to anything I do actually show an interest in.....

My brother-in-law is in the hospital right now.  He hadn't been feeling his normal energy levels for a few weeks, then a fever hit.  Hovered around 104-105 for days.....test was Positive.....he's quite ill, but not on a ventilator.

His test was done via a drive by method, throat swab; not the nasal swab.

Suicide is always such a tragedy.  May the family find peace as they struggle through their grief.  It never truly goes away.....my brother has been gone for 22 years.

Thank you oldbuddy for sharing the link to the song/video of:
 Kris Kristofferson - Here comes that rainbow again (1982)

What a great story told in music.

.......

"How much are them candies?" they asked her.
"How much have you got?" she replied.
"We've only a penny between us."
"Them's two for a penny," she lied.
