Easter Early

Just got back from Early Easter.  The whole clan in one place even if that place was Woodland, CA.  Interesting big little town. 
"Scooter" inspects the goodies.
It is true.  Everything Joel Kotkin said about a flyover state within a state.  If Dilbert Doofen were here he'd suggest rightly several flyover states.

Fresno, Bakersfield, Ontario and San Bernardino are rapidly becoming the Bantustans — the impoverished areas designed for Africans under the racist South African regime — in California’s geographic apartheid. Poverty rates in the Central Valley and Inland Empire reach over a third of the population, well above the share in the Bay Area. By some estimates, rural California counties suffer the highest unemployment rate in the country; six of the 10 metropolitan areas in the country with the highest percentage of jobless are located in the central and eastern parts of the state. The interior counties — from San Bernardino to Merced — also suffer the worst health conditions in the state.

Excuse me now while I check my insulin levels.

Did the last thread set a record?

LBD said...

Good Morning!

No surgery but rehab it looks like.

Low paid jobs are subsidized by welfare. The farmers second harvest.

Lawyerliz said...

Fifth.

Lawyerliz said...

Good. Back surgery is just awful, aND don't seem successful for the ones I've seen who have had it. Rehab often works and almost never make you worse.

LBD said...

Me too, I just want to get back to having more fun. Would you like more pics of my attempt at steel art?

Lawyerliz said...

Yeah, except I can't seem to download them. Can you make them blue, so I can click on them?

Lawyerliz said...

How did you pinch you nerve? Pick up something too heavy? Move in a funNY way?

LBD said...

Ask RD if the blog can do it, kid says it's beyond my capability. She says copy and paste the link is the easiest.

Pinch it just standing up from being on my knees setting a floor jack. I was wrestling with my jet ski minutes before. Total surprise to me but a new limit has been set for this old guy. Getting old is fun! :(

Cinco-X said...

Agreed. After a post operative infection back in the early '80s, I vowed to never again have any elective surgery.

Okay that mingled up a bit. The first three characters are open angle, letter a, close angle. The last four are open angle, forward slash, letter a, close angle. You may know angle as "less than" and greater than. Forward slash is divide.

Lawyerliz said...

I'll try a little later. Am chopping and planted a rose. The imbecile we bought the how from put a layer of little white rocks around the pool area and I have been removing then bit by bit, for nearly 20 years.

LBD..just an fyi..I started doing yoga (yeah..I know..yoga) a couple months ago (YouTube has some good starter programs)...and it has helped me immensely with my lower back issues..as well as just improving my overall flexibility in general. I do a 20 minute session..three times a day..has worked wonders for me.

As an added benefit..it seems to help me to get a good restful sleep at night (I don't toss and turn as much as I used to)...

anyways..you may want to check with your doctor to see if that might be an alternative for you ..

best of luck with the rehab...

Cinco-X said...

Strengthening your core helps a lot... Crunches, bridging, etc.

Lawyerliz said...

Yoga is great. I've done It off and on for a while but never more than 2 or 3 times a week.

Lawyerliz said...

No comments on the comments. Boring.

Rob Dawg said...

I've been very busy and away for the past few days. Things will resume. Eventually I will have enough in the que that discussions will self perpetuate but it takes a little time.

Lawyerliz said...

Go grab those idiots at Mudvelle and drag them over by the scruff of their necks, but be nice about it.

Cinco-X said...

Ummm... Let em go to Reddit... We don't need their kind around here... Besides, I think there's only three or four left. I saw npoic and hoops invading Reddit the other day...

LBD said...

Wondering why there isn't, more traffic here.

Lawyerliz said...

Me too.

Good morning

Lawyerliz said...

Trump is gonna get an IR S audit. Haha hahaha.

Rob Dawg said...

People seem put off by having to "register." If there is another way that doesn't steal an hour from my day removing spam I would do that. And face it. There are several who don't want an account traceable to the comments they make.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Everything must be wonderful with T in office.LOL!

Lawyerliz said...

But surely that isn't Jo or Outsider. Can you make it so just those 2 don't have to register?

Lawyerliz said...

So the genius sez the dollar is too high and so yield go down. I do not und r r stand why anybody takes him seriously with regard to what he says. You hav ed to see what he does, and even then. .

LBD said...

Just like O his actions didn't seem to match his comments either.

Just watched a BBC video where the person claimed the Tesla home battery was about $3K to store $3 of electricity. Doesn't sound economically feasible.

Lawyerliz said...

Sounds like there is a missing zero somewhere.

Rob Dawg said...

"Take him seriously but do not take him literally." Use that filter and he doesn't look half as crazy. The MSM continues to do the opposite with the obvious disconnect.

Rob Dawg said...

Powerwall. 7kWh. SoCal 20¢/kWh. $1.40 of storage for $3000. If you have surplus solar then you save $1.40/day. $42/mo. $500/yr. Ex-interest, ex-subsidies ROI 6 years. Makes sense.

Rob Dawg said...

Financing $3000 would be less than the monthly savings so cash flow positive from the start. And 20¢/kWh is conservative.

Rob Dawg said...

New post finally.

Cinco-X said...

Isn't that about 3 years till break even?
