I'm in a bit of a pickle...

My mother is severally ill in Phoenix. I’m living in the middle of the UK. I’m a Michigan Expat.

I’m not sure she’s going to make it. Gout, Bone infection, Kidney failure… its not looking good.

My wife and I have had both Astra Zeneca jabs. Unfortunately, the US doesn’t recognize it.

If I travel back, I’ll be forced into quarantine for 7 to 10 days.

She might die between now and then

Is there anyway possible to obtain a medical pass to avoid a quarantine?

Do I need to write my congress-person or senator?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards to all…

just remembered this video from 10 years ago...

I made it almost verbatim from an initial conversation with my friend Tom a month before I permanently left for England. We had these weekly breakfast meets for years. Every one was a total sendup to some topic.

Just watched it again and it still cracks me up.

Hope you might enjoy.

The Devil Mug, Spargelfest and the Rainbow of Hate.

There are a few more episodes, but the first just cracks me and my wife up to pieces...

Just started my first germination since 2003

Double grape auto - sprouted!
ESL auto - still waiting…

10 weeks of nurture await. Wish me luck!

Michael Collins silent appreciation thread

He was an amazing person and astronaut. He was happy to play his role. He wrote a beautiful autobiography.

May our memories of him and his life’s accomplishments inspire generations to follow.

just had a blue tit smack into the back of our house (Instantly dead)

Looks like it broke its neck. It was quite a thud.

So I wrapped it up in newspaper, popped it into a ziplock, and placed it in the freezer.

Called the local taxidermy guy just out of town. £130 to mount it up.

At least the bird will have an after-life.

Need to find a nice glass dome.

Considering we counted 95 blue tit landings in an hour during the RSPB Birdwatch last season, I can suppose there is still a healthy population.
