    New York area flooded? Hope you are ok. Stay cool & stay dry.
    Mother Nature is really displeased with the entire human race.

      Molly, thank you so much! Here in Brooklyn, at least where my partner and I live, it was only raining (no big deal). In some parts of Queens, there was flooding. Much ado....

      I agree with what you said about Mum Nature! As the old commercial said, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”

      Big hug!

      Four days? (!) We were only out one day and I thought that was horrible, I can't imagine 4 days! I do have friends in the area that had to go to motels, so I know a lot of regions didn't get their power for quite a while. I am SO sorry you were in that group! Did you tough it out or did you have to go to a motel?

      We have a small generator that we ran 3 times a day to keep the fridge & our freezer food safe.
      Used a lot of gas for the generator, but just had to turn ice cream into milkshakes (so bad!)
      Worse part was sewage/toilets--our holding tank has a pump that runs on electric & can't be hooked up to generator. One more day without power would have been a real disaster as it was full.
      Some people are still out of power! What a mess.

    Hi,
    I understand your brother's fear of having kids. Fear that he might pass it to them. I had same mindset- my first cancer was when I was about 22 or 23. But I already had a child, never had another either & I am sure glad I was smart enough to have the brains to understand that there was a good possibility something was not kosher in my DNA.
    After 4 or 5 more episodes of the big C, it was positive that I was a cancer magnet. Tomorrow I get my stitches out from my latest Melanoma-- they got it all. So this is # 6, guess I am too tough
    but I am dam tired of it all.
    Hope you are making it through this crazy year, write anytime, friend Meyati!!!

      I wish you well in this round-much like a mixed martial arts fighter. It's nice to talk to you.

      I know what you mean, I had a nice Appaloosa that was a rattlesnake magnet. I was out riding and these 2 strange green rattlers that normally live in the AZ border mountains come out- striking and rattling. One in front and one at front side. My poor baby was bucking backward-a very athletic horse- very close and sideways as they took turns rushing to the side, so she had to turn her backward buck to one side or the other- and this wasn't like a parade ground-holes, sand- brush cactus. Fortunately, 2 cowboys were going to check cattle out that way. I don't remember, but I think my horse made enough noises that alerted their horses. They came running over, jumped off of their horses, and shot those 2 snakes without shooting me or my horse. They said- we wondered what was going on and our horses said you had a serious problem. I was a good rider to not be grabbing the horn or falling off. Those were AZ snakes- probably were in a log and got thrown in a truck getting fire wood. The snakes stayed still, so one was picked up by its tail- and we talked some more- then that green snake turned and twisted and tried to bite the cowboys leg and chest. He dropped it and both of them emptied their revolvers into those 2 rattlers and we talked some more trying to stop shaking. A few days later, almost everyone from the village went out trying to see if there were more green rattlers.
