Thanks for this El,
I appreciate your reply,
yes i remember hearing something vaguely
about his being questioned before.
I agree, the example you gave re the woman who
witnessed a patient being abused [saw her on SKY]
NOW speaks up, I would be annoyed with her for that..
not afraid to go before the people on TV now,
but to remain silent then!!
and the people in the hosp in charge to
remain silent and 'take a chance'
Inexcusable,'I' think:
Anyway,
GREAt you got your MOT, must be a great relief -
we have to have ours done every year noe-
before it used to be ev 2 years!
Yes, the MICROWAVE is an asset, but not for everything
as we know.
Wishing you a pleasant wkend..
Lovely Autumnal day this side!
I would have thouht that the nurse had a public duty to report it
wouldn't you Grace, it just doesn't make sense. Whether we believe
he is innocent of these allegations or not, people are certainly
jumping on the bandwagon....

Anyway....had my little practice with the pud, and moving on later
to making a Rhubarb and Ginger Brulee.....very posh! haha

Beautiful here too, home today but off out first thing tomorrow.
A pleasant weekend to you Grace....

That said, Good Morning One and All,
and wishing you a good day ahead.
AH! That explains it.

I hadn't decided if you just jumped subjects from one sentence to the next (associated with the new microwave you had mentioned then or in another);

OR, that you were channeling Lady Gaga (the meat dress and all)!

Yours too Dear Luke, and hope your car comes out good as new. The
MOT is a yearly procedure after the car is 3 years old, it is inspected for road safety. Spent a pleasant hour emptying the
boot of things I had forgotten existed.
The station is close to Pringle's so I will call in there for a few
things, they have a wonderful franchise called Julian Graves where I
get all my dried fruits etc., for baking. Have a nice day, hope to speak later.
Yep, auto is right as rain. It was regular service (mileage/month interval) and no problems were discovered.

Depending on the state, those MOT inspections have been or still continue. When I lived in New Jersey while in military service, state employees/locations did that for vehicles after a certain time in service, and when a used one was just purchased.

Indiana had a mandatory vehicle inspection years past, but that program had volunteer participation by what used to be full-service petrol stations with repair facilities, or actual repair garage facilities.

That situation was prone to , and in places rife with, cheating.

....and republicans in Virginia recently passed a controversial voter registration bill alienating senior citizens and minorities and some young folks without passports or drivers licenses so they cannot get out and vote next month.
The state of Pennsylvania just recently had their Republican-majority legislature voting I.D. requirement put on hold by that state's Supreme Court for this election.

Indiana has had the requirement for an least the election in 2008, and possibly in 2004. I just don't recall. Personally, I have no qualms about it, on it's basic premise. With a bit more thought than most put into the subject, the most potential effect voter fraud has is not on presidential election, but with increasing effect from Congressional results, state office, city, and county numbers.

BUT:

1. in the various states that implement this, there have been reports about the types of documentation for the govt. picture I.D., confusion in dispersing the info depending on the location/personnel on staff. Folks often do not have an original birth certificate, and that type thing. Some states (try to) charge for the I.D.(when it's not a drivers license). Indiana's non-driver I.D. is free. It can be obtained at state drivers license branches, and surely the county courthouse.

2. difficulty of the elderly, and others in getting to those locations.

3. as no govt. staff that I'm aware of go out and register and pass out I.D. cards to those who have that difficulty ... there are the local party organizations that do so, or political party structures hire contracted vendors to do so. In recent news, improper registrations in Florida were discovered using a vendor.

4. Absentee voters MUST pass as rigorous requirement as anyone else. I'm not so sure that is the case.

<quoted text>interesting that you mentioned that.
I happened upon a business today, as part of my sales job ... that bought and sold LP's ... I had a good talk with him about how they value the records.
He siad if the albums are the more common records sold in the 70's to 90's they won't fetch much ... between $3 to $8 ... this is because everybody owns them or can get the CD versions ...
If yuo cannot get them on CD you might get $10.
If it is something more uncommon, like a 60's or early 70's troggs or Pink Floyd Album, you might get $15 to $25 ...
Actually he says that the afficionados like to collect Jazz, soul, blues, and first releases of albums like Johnny cash, john Lennon, and others who havve passed away. Those will fetch $25 to $100 and up depending on how rare.
also if you have an album released in some foreign country, like Japan, with the album cover being unique to that country, then you might have something worth a bit . for example the band Cheap Trick performed in Japan and you can buy the live album as pubished here ... and that won't get yuo $10 ... but if yuo have the Japanese release you might get $50 or more....
You do need to do some research to estimate the value of your LP's
Just to contribute to the general topic of vinyl LPs owned ...

I took care of my modest collection with some diligence, including replacing paper sleeves with the plastic ones. At some point in time, because of moving, and not properly storing, and the priority decisions of providing room for other things in the living space we had ...

and prior .. when the collection was placed where our cat had access to using album jackets (at the alphabetic end where The Beatles and others were ) as a scratching post (wife covered that fact up as long as she could)

LOL! You could be forgiven for thinking that...gotta admit
it would be different.

Don't tell me that Lady Gaga actually wore a dress made out of meat.
Pease tell me that is not true!....:)

El & deer whisperer - familiar with Toni Childs? Debuted in 1988 (I'm dating myself I just graduated from college) with Union. Fabulous CD / album !!! Hard to find the late 80s on YouTube but found two good tunes from the album.
Thanks Boomer! I found the Carolina Chocolate Drops on iTunes and downloaded on my phone. Hope they hit an outdoor festival in Chicago next year!

Hello there Boomer, Good Morning to you.

Meant to mention earlier, one of the female
singers in the 'Chocolate' group you mentioned,
has the name of a Welsh princess.....Rhiannon.
I was invited to choose my grandaughter's name
when she was born, and chose that as it is my
favourite. Sadly, her parent's invited me to
choose another which I did.

Well yes that's true, when it was written the constitution was not meant to include poor whites, blacks, women or native Indians ..... and I was being sarcastic to some extent. Age, sex and race discrimination still continue irrespective of laws, laws on the books are still enforced to keep some people at a disadvantage --- my husband could hit El and it's called assault or assault & battery, but if he hits me its a "domestic dispute" and the police won't get involved.
I must amend the last a bit.

In more recent years, more and more states have laws that address the domestic violence issues, and the communities police must get involved with a mandatory arrest of one party or the other, or both.

Good afternoon El! Almost tea time there?
The whole group has a personality that I have never seen exhibited by famous people! They will sit and chat after a performance with a q&a that is fantastic!!
Rhiannon actually graduated from a university here in Ohio. Her major, obviously music, with an opera background.

I hope you keep us informed about your experiences and variety of them with your new microwave with all it's capabilties!

Indeed, energy usage savings should result.

My microwave is large in dimensions, one of the items doled to me when divorced. It was a wedding present from father-in-saw from the long-defunct Montgomery Ward department store. Subsequently I purchased a toaster oven.

With the girls in visitation residence, or for company, I oft used the regular oven. For just me, the smaller appliances are the ticket.

USAF for 4 years to the day. My then-wife worked on the base as well. My eldest daughter was an infant. I declined "early-out" to obtain Ssgt. rank where we could have govt. reimbursement for our move back to Indiana.

Don't some of them have music education at Juillard too? Or, am I remembering incorrectly?

Biden couldn't quite suppress that facet - interruptions and some laughing -- of his personality.

Much better debate with both participants being engaged to the issues and points and presentation.

And very importantly: Martha Raddatz did an outstanding stint as moderator.

Good Morning Lady Eleanor..
I hope that your day is going well and that you are feeling great... Just wanted to stop in for a second... nothing much is happening in my neck of the woods..
The skies are overcast and our high temps are supposed to be mid to upper 60's... If the clouds would clear out it would be a perfect autumn day...
I hope that you have fair skies and I hope that no matter what you do today you will have fun... Sending you all my best wishes for Peace, Love, Health and Happiness...

Rhiannon is such a lovely name.

maybe the parents had heard the Fleetwood Mac tune too many times on the radio airwaves?

Some US radio stations have had and still have a penchant for over-playing songs to the point of .... ugh, not again.
