12 Only way 2021 improves is Trump prevails, then actually drains the swamp rather than hiring and maintaining derpstate obama/bush holdovers in key positions as he did in '17-'20. So, fat chance....

53 I had an emotionally draining yet also gratifying and very humbling end to 2020.

I have been at my company and division (various jobs) for a bit better than decade. Today was my last day, and I start my new job on Monday.

Around midday, I sent a "thank you and goodbye" E-Mail out to my division and various individuals elsewhere in the company.

Today is a holiday and most people are not at work. Despite that, I have gotten replies from more than 50 people thanking me, saying they'll miss me and wishing me the best. I did not expect it and I'd be lying if I said my eyes didn't water at some of them.

It's a bittersweet but on balance surprisingly nice end to both the year and a huge chapter of my life.

61 ALH, funny Grand Canyon was strange experience. It is so huge it doesn't look real. I found Utah parks, Arches and Canyonlands mor impressive. You could actually climb around and see things up close. With the Grand Canyon, it is far away vistas. Sedona was beautiful too.

Visit both Rims - North and South. They are completely different, with the North higher in altitude, forested and wetter; less visited, too. It was my favorite of the two.

nice Go for it sir! I think we drove past it when I was as kid but my dad was more focused on making time than anything else. No worries, we saw some cool places. To me the West is AZ, Utah, ID, MT, etc. The Left Coast is not the West, but pretty much The Worst.

I would check out Rushmore too. It is likely on more borrowed time than the Grand Canyon.

Parts of Texas are The West, other parts are The South, and other parts are just Texas.

Because you are a God of hope, we know that you create all the possibilities of the future.
Because you are a God of love, we know that you accept all our mistakes of the past.

Because you are the God of our faith, we enter your gates with praise, and we come into your presence thanking you for being with us, and we serve and bless you. Amen.

I want to see the Grand Canyon.
Posted by: ALH

Visit both Rims - North and South. They are completely different, with the North higher in altitude, forested and wetter; less visited, too. It was my favorite of the two.
Posted by: Krebs v Carnot:



And if you visit the North Rim in early May, there is still snow on the ground. Everybody is right though, Grand Canyon is beautiful. All of Northern Arizona is.

152 Being from Crook County, the thing that impressed me the most about going out west was how big it is. Funny thing to say but it's so big you can't see it all in one look. Grand Canyon was like that for me. No matter how long I looked I couldn't see it all. Got used to the open country after awhile and could feel things closing in as I got closer to home.

If you are interested in a commercial river rafting experience through the GC (each raft accommodates about 8 plus the crew), I can recommend Arizona River Runners. Their website is raftarizona.com

Most clients book a 7-day raft adventure. They cook for you & take good care of you. My kids, who were 10 at the time, loved it. LOTS of rapids!

I will never forget my "Grand Canyon cocktails" which I enjoyed every night: grape Kool Aid; vodka; & a teaspoon of fine white sand (courtesy of the wind).

Most of the clients who book these trips are young, outdoorsy couples, who thought Zero was a really cool president! So... I kept my mouth shut mostly.

That's such a nice story. When I was in client support in Ohio, my last day was the day after Thanksgiving. I stayed an extra few weeks just so I could work that Friday and give her a four day weekend.

Clients loved me. And I loved my clients. I was best client support people they ever had - connecting to their databases and fixing errors within minutes of their tickets.

But my last goodbye letter to company people was how it was Friday after Thanksgiving and there was almost no one in the building. I went up to the front desk to get some candy.

There was a cute mouse there. He looked at me. I looked at him. I tried to step on him because I was unarmed. He ran into the nearby closet. And it was the day after Thanksgiving so I wasn't going to hunt him down.

185 There was a cute mouse there. He looked at me. I looked at him. I tried to step on him because I was unarmed. He ran into the nearby closet. And it was the day after Thanksgiving so I wasn't going to hunt him down.

It's a good thing you didn't follow him into the mouse ambush they'd set in the closet. Being your last day, you were probably unaware as to how many of your former co-workers were lured to their doom by hundreds of murderous mice. You got out of there by the skin of your teeth.

the most about going out west was how big it is.

City people are so funny.. It took me 15 years to get my uncle and aunt to come out to visit us in the burbs.
When I lived on the south side, we had friends who moved out to Wheaton.. good lord, I thought that was a major trek to go out to visit them!

200 My great uncle Mike's birthday was Jan 1. He always had an open house party with all the old folks. The washer and dryer off the kitchen were covered by a towel and then with gallons of booze and mixers. There were snacks everywhere and we always had the Rose Bowl on the big console television in the den.

Damn. The old folks would get schnockered. Then the old women would chase us kids around to pinch our faces and kiss our cheeks.

We kids would play croquet in the backyard and sneak drinks out of the kitchen. And eat ALL the junk food.

Uncle Mike and his brother, my grandfather, were Navy boys.

I do not think they would be afraid of the wuflu. I think the party would rate on.

When I was in high school, for some reason or another I wound up getting invited to a NYE party put on by a young woman who was part of the college bound crowd (as was I), with most of us also members of the school band. This happened for all four years. It was a fun time that last happened nearly fifty years ago.

I have celebrated NYE only sporadically since then, but that's okay. An arbitrary point on the calendar, that's all it is.

So I'm popping in and out as time permits. If I say I have a glass of Bushmill's in hand, you'll know I'm done.

I'd rather have champagne, frankly, but I'm out.

Realistically, for me either. I work in construction, which is an "essential" field in Indiana. But the psychological toll of separation and especially masks is something I fear greatly. This is not right, it's not human. And then throw in the stolen election, which ends the Republic if allowed to stand.

So in the end, 2020 really sucked. I will have faith that God has a plan.

So while others will scrambling for TP, I went to my garage and got another package.

yeah, basically free health care. When you get out and on medicare, there might be a tiny bit that is not covered but even then I have not seen it occur in the end. Tricare usually covers anything Medicare doesn't. I believe pretty much every real issue is taken care of if you are in the service. And the pension is almost unheard of these days in the private sector outside a few industries.

351 Patient: "Hey Doc, it hurts when I bite down"
NGU: "Then don't do that."


I'm reading a book, The Reach of Rome, which is an imaginary tour around the Empire during Trajan's reign, following a silver sestertius as it passes from hand to hand.

In one chapter, the author gives some samples of Roman jokes. Yours reminded me of it:

A man goes to the doctor. 'Doctor,' he says, when I get up in the morning, I ache, I vomit, my hands shake and my bowels are loose. Then, half an hour later, I'm fine and feel good for the rest of the day. What should I do?'

The doctor answers, 'Get up half an hour later!'

A) that is way above my pay grade so I will not try to give any details as they change all the time and i am not qualified to answer.

B) yes. 20 years is for standard retirement, full retirement pay is reached at 30. But The VA normally treats people who served much less time. The military hospitals at least used to treat retirees but when the wars abroad of the 2000s started, they did their best to send them to civvies but still cover most of it.

396 AFAIK, you could get VA benefits if you ever served on
active duty other than for training. The benefits are different for
different people and circumstances for sure. But lots of guys served in
combat and though they only were in uniform a few years, they will have
VA benefits the rest of their life. Again, , the real answers come from
the VA itself. There are many different classifications of service.

i can mention one though. It wasn't but a five or six
years ago they decided that those that served in the National Guard for
at least 20 years were to be considered veterans, even if they were
never called up for active deployment.


Posted by: Quint at December 31, 2020 09:11 PM (Ls0fP)

397 Some might find it odd that
someone who was in the National Guard for 19 years is sill not
considered a "veteran' by this country. But the word veteran is a loaded
word to the government. To many of us is means someone who served in
uniform. To the government, it means an obligation, that they owe them
something.

I only
mention this to give an example of how complicated it can be. But for
sure there are those who get VA benefits who did not serve 20 years.

It's been a while. I'm sorry. But I thought you were one of the Jewish members of the Horde.

In any event, I fully watched Disney Channels "Andi Mack" where the gay character Cyrus had his Bar Mitzvah and they sat Shiva for his elderly grandmother. I thought it was actually very beautifully done, and then the gay stuff which fucking ruins everything.

The Jewish ceremonies were really detailed, to my Gentile eyes. And I thought they were really respectfully done, until the gay shit. But they kept the gay crap to a minimum, which is what they do to keep it
acceptable.

438 It's been strange for me because this horrible lockdown had so many unintended benefits for me. Beast mode on burpees, I got rid of my dad bod, had some great times with my wife and family, my medically fragile child really thrived. But I'm looking forward to 2021 despite the fact it may be worse than this year. It's a new year! Fresh and clean like a newborn.

It is true, the financial issue plays a part. They dont' want to leave poor veterans alone. And that is a good thing without a doubt.

There are so many classifications really, you need to check with the VA itself. There are guys who were Lieutenants were are medically retired, they get full retirement. Even a famous/infamous tv talking head was a retired Major. My point is each circumstance in different. But if you served on active duty for the US, you have some VA benefits. Not retirement in many cases but some benefit.

I always heard you should contact your local DAV and they have people that volunteer to help people work through the morass. Get everything you have coming to you, it is the least this country owes.

522 one last thing re VA benefits and hospitals. Generally, retirees, at least in the past went to military hospitals like Walter Reed, Bethesda, Ft. Sam etc. Those were the hospitals that treat active duty and retirees mostly.

But VA hospitals are other places. They support the VA and treat anyone with VA medical benefits. Also, the VA does disability pay and many other things. AFAIK, anyone who served on active duty, or is considered by this country to be a "veteran" has some benefits coming to them. It can be complicated, but again, if you are in doubt, check with the VA or local DAV chapter.

526 Thank you for asking, MP3....I have a blog called "Don't Get Me Started" at www.newyorknatives.com. It's a mashup of memoir, observations on life in NYC and humor. I hope. The collection so far is here:

529 We just got done Facetiming lifelong friends, educators and intellectuals, who informed us that the only way to manage China Flu(s) is a WWII-style FDR Total Centralized Response in which all the little people forfeit their rights to "centralized planning" in order to Save the World. 2021 may be worse.

534 We went to Mt.Rushmore when our daughter was 15. I was a bit worried that she would be bored, but she couldn't take her eyes off it. The Crazy Horse Memorial a few miles away and still under construction, will be awesome if it ever gets completed. Happy New Year (please God)!

I'm so sorry. I tried to do my best.

After a lot of research, you can find anyone in your area that donated to the Dems by name.

I was trying to find them all, but here they are.

Happy New Year to you and all your loved ones. There will be freedom. I'm in Canada but even I can see freedom.

I do Sam. Every day.
I've got very good reason to believe that.
This presidency has never been about just cleaning the swamp in America.
And they had to let things go this far, let it get in everyone's face so much that even the deniers couldn't deny it.
And when they show how wide and deep the Epstein type stuff goes, people will want the hangings.
Strap in.
They'll try to cause as much chaos as possible in their death throes.

561 The Delmarva is a nice place. I spent some time on Chincoteague Island and Assateague. I can't spell them but they used to be very nice places to visit.

Never noticed an Acme store but it is a good name. The bricks and boots are famous. I think Warren Buffet bought them both a decade or so ago. I know he bought the brick company for sure. He bought Tony Llama boots too, and that stings.

564 If you're doing a rod trip the Grand Canyon, stop in at the Cameron Trading Post, have a Navajo Taco in the restaurant while you check out the woodwork and the tin ceiling in the restaurant there. There's a Major gift shop with lots of Navajo crafts for sale. Interesting place.
For real Northern Arizona, roll on up to Page, right on the Utah/Arizona border, check out Lake Powell.
Do this to see some real, wide open country. Just make sure the vehicle's cooling system is up to par. There's lots of miles and miles, no services 'till you get to Page, except for The Gap, Arizona. (Take a right at The Gap,go in on Navajo 20, watch out for sheep, horses and coyotes.)
