What Up?!? Monday 19July 2021


Howdy y’all!

It’s been a tough week technology-wise. La Petite Fille or as she has been known just as often this week, Meine verdammte Tochter, has finally battered her old Mac Book Air into submission. We’re now sharing the computer facsimile Chromebook, and I’m doing most of my posts on my Chinese knockoff Kindle Fire rendering the whole endeavor one long exercise in endless unique frustrations. Luckily, I can cuss in four languages since Quebecois obscenities are unique to it Incidentally, it is my favorite set of cuss words

Just for fun, let’s share the languages you cuss in! Mine are English, German, French, Quebecois, and Spanish. Merde! That’s five. I can cuss in five languages, but I can’t count in any. The lesson, as always is, I’m an idiot.

This Week’s Reading

  1. Hey Jack!

    Kind thanks for the pingback links. These are all great links to other blogs. Wonderful work Sir! πŸ™‚

    Hope things are healthy and safe in your part of the world. As you mentioned here, COVID-19 is back on the rise here in Texas and most of the South & Midwest United States—mostly Red states. No surprise there, right? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Nevertheless, thanks again and you and yours remain well and safe! πŸ™‚

    • Howdy Professor!

      It’s shocking, but not surprising, right? that the #COVID19 vaccination rates are following the 2020 election that it is the most accurate prediction of the vote in some states down to the county. The coefficient is .85!! How bad will it have to get before people give up their conspiracy theories?

      We’re good in Cambodia since both the wife and I are vaccinated; I’m working on getting the verdammte , vaccinated since they just opened vaccinations up for children down to 12.

      Stay well. Don’t let the trolls get you down.

      Huzzah!
      Jack
