    If you have a Gael in the wood pile, then the Edinburgh Tattoo is a must :: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxGyRzbW89Y If this doesn't raise a skin bump or 10, you're already dead.

    From the comments on the link: "And on the 8th day God created the Highlander and the devil fled." ...Never better said.

But so far this week (Friday, late night) we've only gotten 2 all week. Now both of those were today, so maybe they've figured out a way for their operators to call in from home and then call out. Certainly they couldn't be considered "essential personnel." But COVID-19 has done something that the Federal Government and the FCC in particular have been unable to do. And I for one am grateful.
    I'm afraid they've started back up again. I've had half a dozen in the last 2 days.

    It always struck me as odd that, while politics and religion are verboten here, economics is not.
    But for a very large percentage of the population, those three topics have about 90% overlap.
    Yoga class makes me feel like a total stud, mostly because I'm about as flexible as a 2x4.
    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.

    I learned if I am troubled by anything posted here, I don’t read the thread. It’s that simple.

    I think that some of the new FCC rules are beginning to take hold including those concerning spoofing numbers. I got a call recently and there was a message about it being spam and not to answer.

    I've been getting robo calls for months identified as spam, yet the phone company puts them through anyway.
