Re: Daily Check In June 24, 2021

Jackie, did you see the link FloridaCat posted the other day about the outbreak of Delta variant in a county department near where she lives? The mortality rate was 40% among the unvaccinated. The only person who had been vaccinated did not get sick at all. That speaks volumes. I am taking a break i...

Re: Daily Check in June 23, 2021

ICFrugal, the Hills Science Diet kidney food my long-ago little Eskimo spitz was prescribed was disgusting. I could tell by her expression that she would rather die than eat it. That's how I began my career of cooking for dogs, after finding a veterinarian-developed recipe for dogs with failing kidn...

Re: Daily Check in June 23, 2021

Hi, frugal ones. I am having an early lunch, which is nice because it's so quiet. The leftover spaghetti is so yummy! In a bit I have to call some students about finishing up paperwork. Also talked to my nice boss, the one who oversees my building, about damages and repairs. I had sent him a shoppin...

Re: Daily Check in June 22, 2021

Aw, thanks. I just hate waste and think people ought to be treated right. Clem, it's horrendously expensive now and there's a non-refundable fee and penalties for everything. In the really nice dorms, it's over $14K a year just to live on campus, and they still have to pay for books, tuition, parkin...

Re: Daily Check in June 22, 2021

Christmas Trees, I would be ashamed to open the doors to the students at the level of cleanliness that's the norm. They are charged a small fortune, around a thousand dollars a month, to live in the dorms and for that it ought to be clean and have everything working correctly. It is an uphill battle...

Re: Daily Check in June 22, 2021

FloridaCat, when the Delta variant hits here, it is going to be very bad. About 40 percent of our county is not vaccinated, almost entirely willfully so. I am in my building, in my own little office, sneezing my head off because I've been cleaning furniture that was in storage for a year and was ver...
