    I call bullshit, nobody drives 65 in VT, let alone faster than 65!

    You should get back here more often. We got Brodozers doing 90 on 89.

    well, I was mostly joking, and 89 is sort of not part of VT.

    Christ, the door is going to be left open by mistake real soon.
    Last night one of my cats was insane screaming at the top of his lungs and running around like mad. He'd been out all day and this was around 6:30p which is his time to come and stay for the night. Normally I'm very patient but last night was extreme. Your post came to mind ... I glanced at the door..... but didn't pull the trigger because I know he would end up not coming back all night which is dangerous around here.

    He finally wore himself out and crashed hard on the bed like a little kid after throwing an epic tantrum.

    Does your company have a legal dept? My guess is this wasnít ran by them.

    Iím calling bullshit on this.

    Camera monitoring employees in their own homes?

    Not a chance.

    I know they can use video inspections to verify your workspace but not to monitor you.

    Dozens of people sitting on beach, on blankets is ok.

    Two old people in beach chairs is dangerous behavior.

    I think my allergist's practice is suffering. For some context, I am deathly allergic to peanuts. This has been confirmed by blood tests, scratches tests and those two times I almost died, one of which was as an adult. Anyway, I get a call from my allergist and he tells me I should schedule a time to come on in and chow down on some peanuts for a food challenge. I sort of tolerated the guy as a care provider because all I really do is have a few tests run every few years. He's always been dismissive, short and generally non-consultative. And now out of the blue, he has some grand recommendation that he proactively reaches out about.

    I suppose one way to drum up some dollars is to invite your patients in for a anaphylactic buffet and then administer potentially life saving measures with varied success.

    Almost a month ago I was sitting in a rocking chair in the sun in the afternoon out on the front porch reading a book. It was beautiful. Things greening up, birds chirping, warm and nice in the sun. I think, I can handle some quarantine like this no problem.

    That was the last warm day. It's been grim pretty much ever since, 50's and grey mostly. Haven't sat in that chair since.

    The call is really only starting to sink in. He basically called up and said ďHey, Iím the dude who has never previously given a shit about you but now I have a great idea. You know how Iíve been telling you you could die from peanuts for years? Well, that may or not be true so I think you should go buy some peanuts and bring them to me and Iíll feed them to you and then when you canít breathe, make sure you have some life saving medicine on hand. And ensure your insurance is up to date so I can charge you for this experience.Ē

    One day, out of the blue, my cousin said, "Ya know, if you were gonna be a doctor, you should be a dermatologist." I asked why, and he said, "because your patients never get better but they never die. It's a goldmine!"
