It will be four years tomorrow, that I lost 2 friends in a terrorist attack on the gay nightclub Pulse. Last year, @Mikiesboy and @AC Benus put together a tribute to them, from several writers from GA

Well ... I'm gonna have that second glass of wine after all. Our water heater gave up in dramatic fashion. Like ... bottom failed, and water gushed out. And it was behind a screwed in panel. So t

I hope everyone is doing well.  Other than foolish barn owners and not getting your new mattresses.  Our household is growing, first with a new hippo and now a multicoloured cat and and yellow ki

Fae, have you tried CBD oil? I just started taking it a few days ago and while I still have some pain, it's not as bad as it has been for the past few weeks (both knees and thumb) . I haven't needed to take ibuprofen during the day for the past 3 days. That's a big improvement for me. I was skeptical at first, but in my case it does seem to help. 

I have tried it, from a reputable source w. testing certification, and it did help w. the pain -- but it also caused my blood pressure to go up, something it's not supposed to do.

Peter is waiting for 19 weeks for a new sofa ... I'll give him a new cushion for it.

Nineteen weeks? That’s a long time to wait for a new sofa. Then again, it’s been a very long time since I bought a sofa, so who knows, nowadays.

Same here for a lot of manufactured goods. We ordered 8ft fence panels last Feb (?) to replace the ones that were demolished when a car went thru the community fence. Gave the guy $800. Three months later he told us the factory was closed due to covid. Now his phone is disconnected and we have to start from scratch with another fence company. Fence panel is still back ordered. 😒

we're having similar issues st work. people who want us to test their doo dads can't get the parts to get them built or can't build them because it would be too many people in their factory space

Okay, yes, that makes sense. I hope he’s got something decent as a stand in the meantime.

Mom's headstone is going to be delayed, because the company that makes the brass/bronze/whatever plaques put on the marble base was shut down for awhile, and is not backlogged.

My parents bought custom made furniture when they redid the living room back in ‘91. It’s all held up well over the years, so it defo can be worth it to go that route.

I have my grandma's custom made China cabinet. It was a wedding gift. They got married in 1924 so it's almost 100 years old and other than a couple of nicks on the bottom legs it's in great shape. (I did have to find a new skeleton key at a flea market when the original got lost during one of our moves)

Oh, I bet it brings back nice memories of your grandma.

Good morning DiCers! I wish you all a good day... :) 

As for myself, I just got back from getting a flu shot at the pharmacy. It was a rainy walk, but it’s not cold, so the walk was nice despite the rain.
