Not the most popular guy in the parish, I guess


From the Church of St Nicholas, High Bradfield. This isn’t even damning with faint praise.

Me, not died yet. Feeling better. Not getting up and going to work better. But not throwing up my Nite Nurse bad, either.

I’ve been watching Penelope Keith Hidden Villages. I watch a lot of these types of shows but she is a cut above the others. Anyway, they are talking about the Flying Nightingales. 20 years old, 6 weeks training, and off you go to ferry the DDay wounded back to the UK.

Tomorrow will be the best day of being sick. No longer feel like you are being beaten with a bag of rocks, still to exhausted to worry about the things you’re not getting done, but able to sleep deeply and maybe have a little chicken soup and a cup of tea with honey…

Just got an email reminder from my insurance company to get a flu shot. I haven’t taken a flu shot since I don’t remember when, but your recent bout has me rethinking the shot. Because I hate NyQuil. And Husband’s cooking repertoire is thin.

That’s good news! Glad you’re feeling a little better.

I recall the time in Denver when I had the flu. (In the first 8 months after I moved there, I had two colds and the flu. Boy, that must have been one powerful germ pool I stepped into.) Taking flu medicine and pain killers, though not drinking, I reached a point where all of daytime and nighttime TV blended together. My blurred impression was that Batman was a guest on Oprah, Pinky and the Brain appeared on General Hospital, and Dr. Phil and Sarah Michelle Gellar were romantically involved (gack!) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Now I have some idea what delirium is like.

For reference Stoaty, what HAS Uncle Badger been feeding you? I know you love your morning vegetable cream soup, but cream and the flu don’t sound like a good combination.

What has Uncle Badger been feeding her? Heinz Beanz of course – they’re the main stay of a proper English Breakfast.

Toast, mostly. I’m not up to much else. We’ve thrown out so much food this week 🙁

Did you take that picture, Stoaty? I looked for it online,, but couldn’t find anything. I’m hit or miss on web searches,though.

Feel better.

AliceH: it’s an original from a FB group called “Strange Things Found in Churches.” Here’s a link, for anyone willing to darken FaceBook’s door. Shoulda credited the man anyway.

Thanks. I get “Sorry, this content isn’t available right now” message but maybe it’s due to my not having a FB acct.

They have grown much more… protective of late, making it harder more often for people not logged in to view anyone’s pages. Since 90% of the businesses with a web presence in my area use FB exclusively instead of having a real website, this is mighty inconvenient. Not enough to register for an account, but still.

I find that really frustrating, AliceH: FB makes it nearly impossible to find and share content without routing people through FB. And if you don’t have an account, it doesn’t work.

I bump up against this all the time and usually find a workaround, but resent the time this takes me.

FB Troubles: Control. Lefties always want control.

I’ve happily lived three score years and ten without the mofos at *spit* FB *spit*.

What the leftie nannies, scolds and control asshats don’t get is that we can and will route around them.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
