    Good morning everyone from an early start in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of an 8 hour slow cooker curry with cauliflower rice came in at 5.2 this am

    GP surgery duties this morning - 1200 patients, in time slotted batches, for flue jabs. I need to be there by 0730 to help lay out the 2m pads. Four nurses on duty for the jabs and hopefully everyone through between 0800 and 1330.

    Sketch of some trees from a photo taken in Canada, A quick koffy and then on with the show. Hope everyone has a good day.

    6.5 this morning, but it is insignificant following the news of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    The idiocracy that is the US govt can move forward unchecked. Whilst US planes play 'chicken' on the borders of China the idiot in charge has said he will ban Tik Tok and We Chat on Sunday. We may think that this move is not a big deal, it's only social media, but not only will it cause China to respond it is also a move we'd expect from dictatorships seeking to close down free speech.

    My family and friends out there need to get out before they can't. Really bad day :(

    4.9 this morning. A busy day today - classes and 1:1s non stop until I finish at 3.15pm. Then a thorough sanitise of the hall and back home to relax.

    Weighed myself this morning as clothes are getting even looser since I started back to work. 10lb now lost since I started intermittent fasting and limiting calories to around 14k a day. I am so comfortable with this that I don't want to stop but am hoping the weight loss will slow down soon.

    How to deal with all the above? Hug for @Alien Aspie and, yes, things look bad so we can only hope the US electorate make a wise choice. @dunelm great community service and shining example. @jjraak good spot and share. The art express sure does speed along @Muddy Cyclist. A ghastly 6.1 from Stabbo after a Super Salmon (with crispy skin) OMAD. Can't disguise the fact LC doesn't deal with any minor ailments well and is devoid of comfort food. I do weigh 73 kgs and bought a new car yesterday, SPo2 at 98%, resting pulse 60 and temp 35.8 so seasonal cold methinks. I did check availability of tests but Mogadishu seems more than 6 miles away. Big day here yesterday, all the littlies at preschool out in the garden and chatting at pickup about red planes and pointing upwards



    Come what, come may, time and the hour run through the roughest day eh, Big Mac.

    @dunelm a very Canadian feel you have captured in today's sketch, nice trees. Take care whilst hearing the masses. :)

    Scary times indeed, frustratingly we can only watch the game unfold from the sidelines. I can understand your concern for family and friends.

    Good Morning and 6.5 for me today.

    Youngest Grandaughter was 5 on Wednesday and today she and mom and dad are arriving at ours for an afternoon walk and early evening meal with Birthday Cake. The way Covid is going maybe the last proper meeting and we will be back to Virtual Meals :banghead: Mind you thanks to Social Gathering rules Grandaughter seems to have ended up having at least 4 birthday bashes.:)

    Let time lead you where it will. Keep Safe.

    A fine Squiggle looking wilfully at the sun wishing to be red rather than grey. You have caught the alertness a state they always seem to be in.

    Thanks for your appreciation of my rushed sunset sketch.
