        Hi, Tundra! Thanks! Eyes are doing pretty good and the sore bicep tendons in both arms aren’t 100% with the left better than right. Right hand is doing well. I’ll be going back to the doc next week and will try begging him for a cortisone shot in the right arm/shoulder. I know from long experience that it’s a miracle drug for me, but he wanted to do the resting bit first.

        I sort of overdid it this last week and posted too much next door. Merely typing is less a problem, but online locating, checking out and posting photos and articles keeps my right arm at an odd angle for much too long.

        The first computer I used on the job was a Wang personal computer, probably around 1978 before the mouse was widely used in offices. Everything was done by key strokes which was so much better ergonomically. And there are a number of shortcuts which can still be stroked on a keyboard today, too. I’ll have to check them out to get some more relief.

        Have a lovely rest of your day.

          I’m right there with ya! Steroid injections can work wonders. Good luck with your doc. Some family practice docs don’t choose to do joint injections, so if you don’t get one, request an orthopedic referral.

          And we’re having our first snow of the winter today! But the ground’s not well frozen yet, so likely won’t last. May even rain on Monday. Looks pretty for now though.

    Larry Schweikart is always a good read…6 Nov, 12 tweets

    1) “Trump needs to . . .” I get a dozen of these a day.

    2) “Trump needs to get evidence of this fraud out.” Right.

    Do you guys see the headlines? “Trump claims, WITH NO EVIDENCE . . .”

    They won’t even look at evidence. They don’t want evidence. They want Trump out.

    Mornin’ all. Today is one of those beautiful weather days here. It is a little breezy, coolish without being chilly, and bright and sunny. And, the humidity is low. Hope your weather is nice wherever you are. Ours might get ugly in a few days. 🙄

    Hello all, first time poster here.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me.
    I posted a test comment at CTH in the We Got Questions thread yesterday afternoon,
    I checked backed later and I think I got a message saying my comment was waiting in moderation –
    it still hasn’t shown up.
    How long does it normally take for a comment to get approved?

    Well, this sucks. My DIL just posted a wonderful comment on her Facebook page. I was so impressed and proud of her. She said usually she stays so quiet, but the time has come for conservatives to speak out and it is ridiculous to continue wearing masks, and being controlled, etc.

    Well, I checked it again because I got a notification that she had posted a new picture and saw what my niece had written back to her. It was quite civil, but she disagreed about the mask wearing, etc. I have always figured she was a liberal even though we don’t have much contact. She went to public school and became a social worker.

    Most of the social workers I know are very extreme liberals. I was shocked to realize my social worker BFF who died a few years ago was a liberal. I had just become aware of politics in the last 10 or 15 years so it never mattered before. I was shocked because she was so smart but believed all those liberal lies and was unaware of the abuse of welfare, etc.

    Anyway, I guess dissension has come to my family.

    Wikipedia has ordained Biden as the 46th President …

      All this is to get our President to concede. They don’t know our President.

      I suppose if Joe is inaugurated, they will ban President Trump from the ceremony. Imagine…it won’t be the first time in our history we’ve had a crook as President. But I think it WILL be the first time we’ve had a traitor who sold out his country. Amazing times.

      Come the day and come the hour
      Come the power and the glory
      We have come to answer
      Our Country’s call

      Hearts of steel
      And heads unbowing
      Vowing never to be broken
      We will fight, until
      We can fight no more

      __Phil Coulter, words written for his beloved Ireland, echo my heart for my beloved United States of America.

            Thank you, I have used other quotes while written for Ireland, they apply in America.
            For the most part, the Irish are celebrating Biden’s ‘victory’.
            An online Irish publication had written an article criticizing President Trump for failing to grant Amnesty for the Illegal Aliens, which includes Irish. They were wondering why?
            A commenter said, “Maybe they read the comments from this publication.

            I no longer will advocate for anything Irish.

              I agree and those words do apply to America. Funny part is that at the time Celtic Thunder was mostly composed of Scotsmen.

              I went to see them in Chicago Damien was no longer with them and George Donaldson was still alive. Sadly I was really disappointed, instead of singing their Irish songs they did a lot of pop and it was really sort of awful.

    Mitt Romney Congratulates “President-Elect” Joe Biden – Wants Trump Supporters to Shut Up and Get in Line

    This is what my DIL wrote on her Facebook. My son commented on it, “That’s my wife.” 🙂

    I’m generally known as a quiet person. I’m not usually one to rock the boat. But the way this election is going has made it clear that conservatives need to take a stand and raise our voices. Here’s mine.
    The fraud and corruption coming to light in this election is unbelievable. I hope President Trump wins because he has very capably led our country in a positive direction for the last four years, and four more years would be even better. However, I care more about the election itself being conducted fairly and constitutionally. I don’t trust that any of our nation’s institutions are committed to a fair election. Mainstream media and big tech in particular have been appallingly partisan in their interventions and it’s time we hold them accountable.
    COVID is NOT WORTH the sacrifices we’ve all made and we’re still being asked to make. It’s essentially a bad flu and the same populations are vulnerable to it. Since when are we so risk averse, as a nation, that we are willing to wear masks everywhere but home? Willing to irreparably damage the economy? Willing to stay away from our families and friends? Willing to hide our faces for every interaction with strangers, and many with friends? The world is upside down when the cure is worse than the disease. Enough is enough.
    America is NOT RACIST! The founding ideals and documents of this nation are one of humanity’s greatest achievements. Historically, we have not lived up to those ideals, but that’s because we live in a fallen world and we’re all sinners. We will keep trying, not by tearing down everything this country has ever stood for, but by better honoring the founding ideals. Rioting, violence, and looting in the name of social justice is unacceptable.
    I love this country. I’m raising my children to love this country. And I’m willing to fight to preserve it for them.
