This premiers tonight.
If you still have symptoms I would tell them to stay away.
I can't see it won't play here, I will post this one.
I went out yesterday afternoon to get propane for my heaters and got into a car accident...I'm fine, had my dog with me too, he's fine, the car is totaled...First time Kobi has ever been in a wreck, he was a little freaked out...Coming up to a stop light with vehicles in front of me I was slowing down to a stop when the vehicle behind me wasn't paying attention and hit my car propelling me forward enough I couldn't prevent hitting the SUV in front of me...The passenger airbag went off but not the driver airbag on my side, had 2 full propane tanks in the trunk, glad those didn't go off lol...The road was a 35mph zone so none of us were going too fast to begin with...The guy that hit me said he glanced away for a few seconds and didn't realize how close he was, he might have been on his cell phone for all I know, but whatever his insurance doesn't cover mine will...Going to get a rental car in a couple days, last night I felt like a ragdoll that's been tossed around but feeling good this morning after resting overnight...
I'll be looking for another vehicle by the weekend, will have a rental for 30 days covered by insurance so I can get around and find one...Maybe a Jeep Cherokee this time, always liked those vehicles but never had one, it needs to have a 4x4 option for my mountain excursions lol...
Thank God you are both OK.
Here's something funny for you. I was looking at a scholarly article on the Elamites, as
part of my research.
The article was in this journal:
Journal of Anthropology and Archaeology
June 2014, Vol. 2, No. 1, pp. 129 - 140
Published by the American Research Institute for Policy Development.
Sounds legit, right?
However, in a comment that I found on an accredited scholar's website, he furnishes
the information that "the journal’s publisher has published a machine-generated article that was submitted by someone checking to see whether the publisher would accept and publish a totally bogus article. The paper’s 'authors' were named as I.P. Freely, Oliver Clothesoff, Jacques Strap, Hugh Jazz and Amanda Huginkiss. "
So, at least somebody is having fun during Corona-time; publishing machine generated articles
and having the guts to list those names as the authors.

I have a gigantic scary-ass tree out back I call the 'Tree of Souls' just because it's so Halloweeny all the time and I just know it wants to grab at my soul. It's Evil. . Got to be a hundred years old. We had a big wind storm the other night and a huge piece of Evil broke off. Big tree sized limb maybe a foot in diameter and thirty feet long or so. Got to go fire up the Husky in a day or two and get that thing outta there, it's blocking the dog's poopy trail. Can't have that.
Well apparently my 4 year old grandson has my insight as my wife puts it. My daughter and her husband were talking about her mom that just passed when the boy said I know nana is dead, but she is ok. Than later that day she was looking at pictures and he pics one up and said look its me. the pic which he never seen before was a x ray of his lungs when he was born.
Picked up the rental car, a 2021 Hyundai Sonata, it drives okay, good enough for a rental car...Still waiting to hear from the insurance company on how much they're giving me for my car...
The other guy's insurance is who should be paying for your car. When they make their offer,
you can easily say - I don't think that is fair - I need at least another $500. They won't argue
over that type of amount, and will settle it by paying you this extra. . I worked in risk management and insurance for 26 years.
Yep, his insurance paying for my car and my insurance paying the repairs for the car I hit in front of me...My insurance is also paying for the rental car I now drive...
My crazy grandson 4 years old, well they live in the country and they caught him pooping outside, he said well i pee pee outside.
My dad was an electrician and sometimes he would have moments like this.
So sorry to hear someone ran into you, Nivek. Glad you and Kobi are OK!
I'll give it a try. It looks too weird to pass up!
Well, lost a day of work yesterday.
We had a minor earthquake, which we get about every three months. Unless we forget
to drop our sacrifice in the Volcano, in which case it comes more often.
Anyway, a shelf fell in the bathroom - which, being wood, was easy to fix, but
it dropped and broke the toilet. Water all over.
Took me the whole day to replace it, and reminded me that my muscles need more exercise.
A day filled with my kids frustrated misbehaving and fighting ended the only way it could.
I'm going to bed .
