I'm old and this last election has convinced me that standing in line for two hours to cast a vote is an exercise in futility.

How do you convince our youth to vote when the Moron in Chief lost the popular vote by 2.9 million votes and still gets to claim the title POTUS?

too many treats, say health experts"

Miserable sods. The health experts that is.

www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/11/14/grandparents-risk-harming-health-grandchildren-giving-many-treats/

Interesting.


 Why?  If  boosewell is posting on another board, so what?  Geesh, leave the old sod alone.

 


 I just thought it was interesting. However the 2nd part of your post made me laugh.

Why in the world do you go to the polls when you can apply for and receive an absentee ballot?  Well, at least Eddie and I can in FL.  I have to presume it's the same in every state, at least concerning federal elections, and in our county and state, all the others, too.

If I was posting on another board under another moniker from the one I use here, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't appreciate being "outed" here. It smacks of stalking.

Beside that, boosewell isn't the only Brit who's been part of our community all these years.  I've learned to borrow, with great delight, Brit-slang such as "naff off," and other English expressions.

Plus, I'll always be grateful for rock'n'roll's British Invasion.  It came along at exactly the right time and has kept R'n'R going on furrevurr.

 Thank you Uni and Dee and Whistlepig and Kitty.

 

Actually, I have posted the link to the article about grandparents on half a dozen boards and all manner of grouchy old buggers got very cheery and told stories of how they spoilt the grandchildren something rotten and how they intended to carry on spoiling them rotten and the health experts could get stuffed and they (the grandparents, not the health experts) posted photos and videos of the kids and became very jolly and human.

And then I posted on this board.........

Never know when a thread will go off the rails that's for sure.

Annnyways.. I don't have any grandchildren to spoil with candy, but I do have little grand nieces who I watch fairly often. Their mom stuffs them with too many carbs (cakes, cookies, muffins, bagels, pasta, etc) but draws the line at chocolate candy. Those kids would be far better off with less empty carbs and a bit of chocolate now and then. I can't do anything about the excessive carbs, but I sneak chocolate in where I can. Or I was until the four year old gleefully ratted me out the other day. I don't think she quite grasps the concept of a secret yet.

Stalking? don't you think that is a bit of a stretch, I saw 2 posts that were exactly the same so I posted it. Believe me that last person I would stalk is Boozer.

 It is an odd thing about children, but although I can't remember the number of times I have gotten them to repeat the magic words, "now don't tell your mother," they still do.

 Is stalking something you would do to so quickly think I was stalking? It was the first time in fact that I had even noticed the other name. I thought I saw the same thing over at Nytrams that was as far as it went until you said stalking. Good god woman that is ridiculous.

Nytram you can put this crap at the bottom of the barrel now it is where shit belongs!

 You revealed one our member's identity at another board. If once isn't stalking, it certainly is harassment.  You're walking a fine line here.  

Some of our members here consider this a safe place.  I hope it can remain that way.

Having reread this whole thread I think it is stalking as well. I know I would not like it one bit if someone posted here what I may have said on another chat board.  I feel  it should go to the bottom of the barrel as well. Also you owe Boosewell an apology too.

I am speaking up because it should not happen here. I have never seen something like this before at Nytrams place and hope not to see it again.

Perhaps you miss stepped Suzi, I am glad you have told Nytram to put it in the bottom of the barrel.

 No harm done Uni.

I have been somewhat ungallant to Suzi in the past and have hopes of being so in the future, so I guess we are even.biggrin

you would have gotten more similar results here if the title had been "cat owners risk harming health of cats by giving too many treats, say health experts" instead biggrin


 Talking of which, the kids have adopted a stray. It really is the ultimate manky moggie. She turns up, scoffs whatever is available and then legs it. But a month or so ago and probably because I had just finished some gardening and ponged as badly as her,  she sat down alongside me and let me tickle her ears.

Whereupon I discovered that she was about 98% flea and other vermin. 

So I got a flea comb and started to remove industrial quantities of insect life. And the cat loved it. Now every time she sees me she sits in my lap and waits while I run the comb round her ears, under her chin and across her belly and gives me 10% of her fleas by way of a reward.

 isn't that sweet of you. smile pick her up some of that monthly flea medicine and she'll be even more thankful! and you'll have more time for ear scratches instead of flea pickin.


 To be honest, I am not sure that she would. I suspect that she just likes being tickled by the flea comb.

 then you can both still have your bonding time with the comb, it will just be a bit less disgusting on your end without the fleas present. wink


And much less distressing for the cat who is no longer being constantly fed upon by parasites.

 Combing seems to work pretty well Whistle. The other treatments don't seem to work. I suspect that this is because she is a stray. As soon as the medication has cleared up one infestation she probably picks up another one during her feline frolics. And I am not worried about a few fleas myself. I like something to look up to. And when I am done I put my workclothes in the freezer and have a shower, which seems to do the trick.
