Insane!

Also, there is white ash falling in downtown Kelowna right now, September 17, 11 am. No sooner had I put a navy blue t-shirt down on a table it was getting covered. We're scrambling right now to get stuff out from the open that we don't want ash in. :-X :swear:
As WW3 develops, no one is going to be dissing the "preppers." What have you done?

My British friend makes great needlepoint canvases, partnered with a Brit wool store. So sad to see the nice weather go.. happy to start the latest one she sent. I have a hard time just sitting without doing something.
Of course you wanna see it, right?

I have no problem doing nothing, all I have to do is retreat into my head. Thinking, reading, processing, considering. I can't listen to a podcast and clean because as soon as it gets really interesting my brain goes "Hang on, need to pay attention so we'll stop all the background functions" =_=

You need something like this https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/7497102 ... i-have-the (and it's on sale!). Although, it needs to be bigger with "don't test me" added on the bottom . . .

I do them when and if I am watching TV or a movie. As for books it's an addiction. Oh, I don't need to spend much times with my thoughts, that happens about 3am

Me too, on occasion. As I take my ipad to bed with me, listening to a soft voice reading prior to falling asleep, should I awake at 3 am I turn it on again, using the timer to 30 min, I always drift off again, voices and scenes from the past dispelled, thou must do list waits until morning.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

So me being a old perv and all, I was sifting thru the Ukrainian women's singles websites. Low hanging fruit? Sure, but when your old , broke, and ugly like me you see the war in a opportunistic kinda way.
Just under the Ukrainian single women website was a Russian singles site which got me thinking...
What if I ordered one of each and introduced them to each other by getting them to go downstairs into my sex dungeon and got the mud wrestling pool ready... :smt045 :up:
Do you guys see the potential with my thinking ?
Post is in poor taste I know
Relax, I'm kidding, I was actually looking at German and polish dating sites.

In the trucking industry if your lucky youll find a toothless half man tundra bitchhh coed tractor toss champion.
And don't think I can't get laid at lickman rd truck stop. Those guys know im driving around a big rig wearing women's lingerie. All I have to do is flash my lights for some hot, sweaty, truck stop action.

How does a city rid itself of 440,000 tons of waste that it produces annually?

Copenhill.
You built a waste to energy power plant and convert that waste into enough clean energy to deliver electricity and district heating for 150,000 homes.

I don't know if anyone is interested in this but I thought it was kind of cool.
