Exactly. I bought a boat. Sailed it for 4 years, sold it for 1k over purchase. I do miss it though.
I miss having a working boat to tend and use. The trouble is a working boat without a job rapidly becomes a money pit.  Thank God for hopeless dreamers...but seriously, I think there should be a legal requirement that vessels past a certain age come with a caveat that spells out how they're to be disposed of when they get too old to repair. Theoretically a boat can be replaced piece by piece indefinitely but in practice to many end up abandoned on beaches or sunk in the middle of the night when no one is watching.

Just got the results from my lung Cancer scan and got the all clear. So glad I did this and so glad I quit smoking when we were getting ready to have Easy.

If you smoked, get your GP to set up a scan...

I'm going to live to 90.

Happy for you my friend.  Live long and prosper.

Thanks, but I maybe spoke too soon.  They sent me for a follow-up about my thyroid, which I mixed up to think it was about something else.  Yesterday I realized, when looking at the requisition form, that it said I had a 1.9 CM growth.

Whatever, apparently these ones aren't as bad but...

The shut down the biggest vaccination centre in our town because of the heat and it isn't air conditioned.  METAR is showing 40 degrees at YXX.

Today, Lytton BC recorded the hottest temperature ever recorded in all of Canada.

School cancelled in the Valley tomorrow. A scary thing is most of the records being broken were set since 2000.

Nine years ago we moved to our first home with central air. The last two nights were the the first we never turned it off at night.
Not looking forward to grilling on the deck today.

I got an email about about school district about 20 minutes ago.  I've never been one for AC but I ordered one yesterday.  It'll be too late for this heat wave, but it's obvious they're going to be a necessity from now on.

The only thing saving me is that there’s a breeze today!   I mean, it’s like a hot fart of a wind…. But still better than no breeze!  (Sans smell…. We only get bad smells from the pulp mill with south easterlies, which are associated with rain, not clear skies). 

We need to hear from climate expert Graham about this….  What does he think?

It gets hot and smelly in the summer.

Well I was sweating heavy to day even though I was lucky enough to be just strolling down to the beach on the south end of Van. Isle. I heard the news that Lytton set the Canadaall time record today reaching 46.1. I was bitching about dealing with mid 30's so I'll doff my hat to them, next week or so, maybe. And who doesn't like warm sunny weather? Maybe just dial'er back a bit Mr. Weatherman, and store up some of this for January.

It seems he’s a climate change denier….   

But without any sources or evidence…. Par for the course with that type, I guess.
