Aarghhh. Where do earworms come from and why are they usually songs you despise?

Today I have this running around in my brain. Don't like it, never liked it and haven't heard it in years, but it pops up today out of nowhere.

Wives and Lovers
Burt Bacharach
Hey! Little Girl
Comb your hair, fix your makeup
Soon he will open the door
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger
You needn't try anymore
For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
I'm warning you...
Day after day
There are girls at the office
And men will always be men
Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers
You may not see him again
For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
He's almost here...
Hey! Little girl
Better wear something pretty
Something you'd wear to go to the city and
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music
Time to get ready for love
Time to get ready
Time to get ready for love

How to make perfect boiled eggs.

I have not tried this yet myself, but thought I would share and see if anyone else has tried it.


Lower your eggs straight from the fridge into already-boiling water, or place them in a steamer insert in a covered pot, steaming at full blast on the stovetop. If boiling, lower the heat to the barest simmer. Cook the eggs for 11 minutes for hard or six minutes for soft. Serve. Or, if serving cold, shock them in ice water immediately. Let them chill in that water for at least 15 minutes or, better yet, in the fridge overnight. Peel under cool running water.

There is some other good info at the site, but this is what interested me the most.

All I’m saying is - there’s a highway to hell and only a staircase to Heaven. That alone should tell you how much traffic each place is anticipating. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Meghan McCain on MTP????

That does it. I occasionally watch the show, depending on who is being interviewed. After interviewing Cory Booker, Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Chuck Todd introduces the panel and there sits Meghan McCain.

I had to turn it off.

The latest Covid cure? Hydrogen peroxide in a nebulizer.

A national asthma organization has warned of the dangers of a recent social media trend of people inhaling hydrogen peroxide through a nebulizer to treat or prevent COVID-19.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) said in a blog post on Tuesdaythe trend seen on websites such as Facebook, Twitter and TikTok is "concerning and dangerous."

"DO NOT put hydrogen peroxide into your nebulizer and breathe it in. This is dangerous!" the organization said in its post. "It is not a way to prevent nor treat COVID-19."

A nebulizer is a machine used by people with asthma that turns liquid medicine into mist, which people breathe through with a mask or mouthpiece.

For these idiots saying there is a 98% survival rate with Covid.

For these idiots saying there is a 98% survival rate with Covid. Would you go into a stadium of 50,000 people knowing 1,000 wouldn’t leave. And you don’t know which 1,000 it is ? That’s 2%

It is far too soon for people to write off Joe Biden

Put it down to a hyper-caffeinated media. A few weeks ago, Joe Biden’s presidency was widely hailed as a triumph. Coronavirus was in retreat. The US economy was roaring back. And Democrats looked on course to pass Biden’s ambitious economic bills by early autumn. Rash comparisons between Biden and Franklin Roosevelt were being bandied about. 

A few weeks of setbacks have changed everything. The rampaging Delta variant has dented consumer sentiment and created a bad jobs report. Forecasts of a Democratic defeat in the midterm elections next year are now commonplace, which would turn Biden into a lame duck. All of a sudden people are proclaiming Biden’s “failed presidency”. Others are chronicling “How Delta beat Biden”. 


Biden’s biggest setback, however, was the botched nature of the Afghanistan withdrawal. The July 2 pullout from Bagram air base occurred in advance of his self-imposed deadline of August 31. But the way it happened undermined Biden’s reputation for competence, which was probably his most important quality in defeating Donald Trump. No amount of White House special pleading can alter the fact that America’s exit has damaged US interests. Since then Biden’s approval ratings have fallen by roughly six percentage points, which is steep. In terms of media narrative, his presidency is now in freefall. 


Nothing that Biden faces yet compares with that. For all its flaws, the Afghanistan exit is still popular with the US public, though the president has personally taken a hit over its handling. The real test of his fortunes will come in the next few weeks when we find out whether he can push through his $1.2tn infrastructure bill and $3.5tn “American families plan”, both of which would have a big impact on working Americans. One of the reasons most Republicans oppose the first bill and are unanimously against the second is because they know how popular they would be.
