Uneaixoise

200 down.....ok, off to geezer hour at my little local grocery!
7:40 am
MollyL

I found the grocery store a lot less crowded in early hours that it was a few weeks ago. Thank God.
7:41 am
MollyL

I miss the extra sleep on Saturday though.
7:51 am
MollyL

A's done. I hate A words.
7:53 am
BzznBea

My favorites. There are A lot of them today.
7:59 am
MollyL

I really cannot keep up with what words are "okay" and what words are not. I am now reading that the LGBT community is "embracing" the word "queer". As in, it is okay to refer to gay people as queer now. What?
8:03 am
Judi

Good morning, all
8:03 am
BzznBea

Good morning, Judi.
8:08 am
MollyL

Judi's here. Tap the keg.
8:09 am
Judi

I"m surprised "queer" is acceptable lexicon to those who are gay. Maybe because it's only one letter away from "queen" ? Nah, I'm kidding. Queer used to just mean peculiar. It also used to be slang for heroin.
8:10 am
Judi

I guess words, much like humans, evolve over time.
8:10 am
MollyL

I think this is relatively new and I'm not sure that all gay people are accepting it. Certainly not gay people of our generation who grew up hearing queer as a pejorative.
8:10 am
BzznBea

And they come and go in the "fashion" sense.
8:13 am
Judi

As a heterosexual, I am not qualified to make the call.
8:14 am
Robespierre

I figure it’s just polite to call people what they want to be called, even if it changes from time to time.
8:14 am
Judi

*singing*... call me irresponsible...
8:15 am
MollyL

No one feels the need to address my by my sexuality so I refrain from doing that to others. I just call people by their names. : )
8:15 am
BzznBea

Rob, Twin Cities as in Minn/St.P
8:15 am
Robespierre

Yep!
8:16 am
BzznBea

My brother and his fam live up there.
8:16 am
Robespierre

Cool! It’s a pretty nice place to live, once you get used to the winters...
8:16 am
Krysten

Good morning all...just to weigh in, the best practice is to simply ask a person how they wish to be addressed. Whether gay or trans or any part of the LGBTQ2 spectrum, people prefer to be asked their preference. And it's not just about sexuality but also about gender.
8:17 am
BzznBea

He is getting too old for the winters. Has sever arthritis. He is looking to move to warmer climes.
8:18 am
Robespierre

Makes sense. My wife is the same way, but we’ll be here at least until our daughter graduates from high school.
8:18 am
Robespierre

trite
8:18 am
Robespierre

oops! sorry!
8:18 am
BzznBea

I agree, Krysten.
8:18 am
MollyL

The whole gender preference thing has me confused as well. I try to just stick to referring to people by name.
8:18 am
Krysten

It
8:19 am
Krysten

It's not always that easy, Molly but yes, that is best.
8:19 am
Judi

Agreed, Molly. It has gotten too confusing if you ask me. There needs to be ribbons and a reference key or something. ;-P
8:21 am
MollyL

I have a friend who is a shrink and he wonders if schizophrenics will start wanting to be called "they". : D
8:21 am
Krysten

Some practices make is easier. For example my work email signature let's everyone know how I prefer to be addressed - she/her/hers
8:21 am
Krysten

It's now standard practice for all of our execs to do this as well.
8:21 am
Judi

I have seen the gender and it is us!

We've been discussing the changes that Covid has made to our lives. I'm wondering if more people and companies will realize it is easier an more beneficial for people to work from home.

My husband usually carpools to work - most of the people in his carpool have been working from home since this all started, most of them are going to continue to do so once the restrictions are lifted. He really can't.

My husband worked from IBM and he worked remote. That was ten years ago.

i'd be interested to see, with companies switching folks to working from home, the changes in service/retail costs due to decreased overhead/infrastructure

i suppose not much will change; it'll take years for companies to rebound

I doubt we see any of that decrease, welki. But, yes, they will save a lot of money with remote workers.

Bright was saying that the medication Trump has been touting wasn't going to work. Any time some one opposes this MF, they are gone...
9:18 am

She probably said no to putting disinfectant into the vaccine.
9:20 am

you would think that by now trump supporters would see what is going on and recognize him for what he is --- but I guess if you never watch or listen to anything but trump approved media. It is just so unbelievable that anyone would suppress information and refuse cooperation causing thousands of deaths just so he could have a better chance at getting reelected
9:22 am
BzznBea

Yes, nan. I don't understand it either. there are just so many people that will vote for him again only because he is the Reupblican nominee.

11:10 am

Not all, trif. I have wonderfully wiry greys. Mom went from strawberry to auburn and didn't start to grey until she was in her 70s, think Imma follow in those footsteps... my brother, however, is going a beautiful white.

I would fear catastrophic results, Trif.

2:37 pm
amelu0218

my son was astonished after I'd gotten out of the pool one day when I said he owned all of my grey, lol. He said 'Momma! You don't have any grey hair!' and gasped when I held my wet hair down against my scalp (I'm strawberry like mom was so I really have about 9 different colors/textures in my hair). I had to laugh out loud at him when he said 'I'm so sorry!'

I had many colors and still have many textures. Gone are the reds & golds but I earned and own the platinum. My daughters decided to follow my lead. My grandmother had the most beautiful white hair and smile. As a young girl I wanted to be like her, I just didn't know that it would start so early...

I guess one might take an8 measures, like carrying pepper spray...
3:29 pm

I listened to a podcast about the woman who inadvertently started incel. crazy.

Can I ask how your state or area is handling the virus right now?
10:17 pm
Kizah

Iowa is opening up tomorrow
10:23 pm
helenkeller

I'm finally really impressed by our governor, Pritzger & our mayor, Lori Lightfoot. They are both listening to the science/medical people, not these jerks who are putting money ahead of lives. We are pretty much shut down til the end of this month, and also into June. They are not making any promises and are very open about that. No one knows what's going to happen, so they're playing it by ear. Lotsa updates. Lotsa deaths here. They are pulling out some hard stops for the people who are having house parties, or businesses trying to make a little unsafe profit. Better safe than dead in my book. I'm in Chicago, Illinios.
10:24 pm
helenkeller

They also have a fairly well thought out 'open-the-state' strategy, but again, it's play it by ear.
10:26 pm
helenkeller

Iowa is our neighbor, I've driven through there many times. Besides the Des Moines area, you have, what, like 8 people living in the whole state? I jest, of course. Some states will be easier to open than others, Iowa is one of them.
10:31 pm
helenkeller

Kizah - How are you feeling about your state opening?
10:37 pm
gemini_J13

Kansas is still shut down,,,, opening up barber shops and salons next week,,,, no groups over 10
10:39 pm
helenkeller

Personally, I'm very much against the salons & barber shops. This is simple vanity, so not worth risking my life.
10:39 pm
gemini_J13

welll,,,, its a choice I am not planning to go
10:40 pm
helenkeller

Yep, people have to make their own choices. Darwin never sleeps.
11:20 pm
grannyrose

we are finally allowed 5 visitors, family and/or close friends into our homes. also gatherings of 10 only for church services.(fortunately my church has a very small congregation), 10 for a wedding, 20 for an indoor funeral, 30 for an outdoor one. social distancing still to be observed.
11:24 pm
helenkeller

Right gr, here they're focusing on being very specific on all the religious stuff. This is taking precedence over salons, bars & restaurants. Meanwhile, I'll probably have my knees done before I go back to work. Part of what we do is fund raisers, so we all expect to be swamped. Have fun, raise much needed money.
11:25 pm
grannyrose

whoa !! helen !! both knees?? not at the same time i hope.
11:25 pm
helenkeller

Seems like it will require tremendous restraint to keep that distance - especially during funerals. People still need comfort.
11:26 pm
grannyrose

there is nothing like the touch of a caring hand or a friendly shoulder to cry on.
11:26 pm
helenkeller

Yep, both knees are totally shot. I have a referral to an ortho doc, but I don't want to step foot in any hospital in the near future. It will have to wait.
11:27 pm
Kizah

Actually, I'm not going to change what I've been doing
11:27 pm
Kizah

My BIL is an ER doc and they've had patients with the virus test negative more than a few times. He said that the tests aren't accurate, which isn't uncommon with a new virus
11:28 pm
helenkeller

Exactly gr. I'm actually often surprised how many of the people I know have fallen totally apart during that first hug. Like they were saving all this up for me. But I take that as a high honor.
11:28 pm
Kizah

I tend to err on the side of reason so while I may see my boyfriend and have contact (ahem), the couple of friends I've seen have stayed at a distance
11:29 pm
grannyrose

my advice helen, and i have had one knee done. is to have one at a time. the pain is excruciating first day post-op. and i am pretty gutsy when it comes to pain. also it will be very difficult to weight-bear on both legs which is what is expected of you, day one post-op.
11:29 pm
helenkeller

Kizah, me either. I'm staying put at home. LOL about your bf. Just don't have a virus baby.
11:29 pm
Kizah

I live in Cedar Rapids so there are thousands here and people are pretty competent. I still go see my friend, a bartender, after they close and have dinner with him, but won't go during happy hour or even later on
11:30 pm
Kizah

Re: HelenKeller: I'm 50 and he's 49 so I think we're pretty safe!
11:31 pm
Kizah

Note: I know that 50 isn't out of the question, but my late husband and I didn't conceive and I probably can't. I'm actually happy about it...never wanted kids!
11:31 pm
grannyrose

me three am perfectly happy with staying in my home. only going out for Dr's appointments.
11:31 pm
helenkeller

Yep, that sounds like the best advice, gr. I've had my right hip done, will be 15 years in December. Minimally invasive. Rehab was so simple. Knees, I have come to learn, are much more complicated.
11:32 pm
helenkeller

That's so funny Kizah!!!
11:36 pm
helenkeller

gr - my doc has done one video chat with me, otherwise we just e-mail. She knows me very well, knows that I provide very accurate descriptions, and gives me meds without needing to see me. Like, one of the cats just bit me - 2 punctures, one healing well, the other angry red circle around it. No problem getting the antibiotics. The only time I have to go out is to pick up a monthly prescription of one med that is a controlled substance, they won't deliver that.
11:38 pm
grannyrose

good practice helen. i am fortunate in that hubby is happy to go out for necessities. i have said we could have everything delivered but he says he is very carefully while out. he has a small bottle of sanitiser hanging from the strap of his bag, which he uses frequently when out.
11:40 pm
helenkeller

So, hubbies are good for somethings. I wouldn't know, never had one, but sure could use one, lol.
11:42 pm
grannyrose

*giggle* i hear you Helen. or at least a significant other which i believe is the term used, or a partner...yup, hubbies can be quite useful.
11:45 pm
grannyrose

Helen?? question....why did the cat bite you?
11:46 pm
helenkeller

gr - startle response, I was going to the powder room in the dark, she's old, but completely harmless.
11:47 pm
grannyrose

oh dear!! poor old thing. did she not hear you?
11:49 pm
helenkeller

Must have been sleeping very soundly. She's very sweet really.
