  1. I found out the the second season of The Umbrella Academy is now available for streaming on Netfilx. I've been waiting and waiting for it.
  2. I spent over a year of my life in Roma. I badly wanted to go to this show.
  3. This is not off of U2.com, or a statement from U2. I'm waiting for non-U2 merchandise within the United States. I'm posting this so people know that packages for delivery are quite delayed. They are saying that as states begin to shut down again, the delays in shipping will get worse. Again, this is not a statement from U2, or about the U2 subscriber's gift.. It's a general statement concerning how delivery of packages is now taking much longer because of Covid-19. Due to COVID related delays with the United States Postal System (USPS), many shipments are experiencing delays of 30-45 days for all classes of USPS mail. Tracking links are taking longer to update as well Additionally, all international orders shipped outside of the US are taking 4-12 weeks to deliver due to delays at customs as well as COVID related outages all over the globe.
  4. I was hoping it would be her. She's got the bite and prosecutorial background, in addition to holding public office. I feel better about voting for him now that she's part of the ticket. BUT: How could she be so brutal and mean to poor Joe in a primary presidential debate? 😉 haha . Trump, his sons, Pence, his wife, her second cousin twice removed and any other dog on a leash that'll follow are all invading Wisconsin for the Democratic National Convention, which starts next week in the city where I live. (Milwaukee, WI USA) There are going to be more Republicans here, campaigning with rallies, than there are Democrats for the convention. Democrats are not holding rallies.. A virtual convention protects us, and the opposing party makes us much more vulnerable to Covid-19 because it's good politics. Democrats told people not to come to Milwaukee due to the pandemic. Republicans do the opposite, even though they know it's endangering the health of many. This directly affects me because I live a mile or so from where it's all going to happen. That being said, it's still really exciting that the DNC is taking place in my city next week. My good thing: 86% of Milwaukee residents support face mask requirements. We have a strict face mask mandate. I watched my local Covid-19 press conference earlier today.. There are spikes, but our local number of cases is declining. We have free and accessible testing. The lines are shorter. People are getting results back sooner. We have, or soon will have, a program which gives face masks to the poor. One lady took it upon herself to give face masks to the homeless. Others have now joined her cause. Trump Out Now.
  5. Also - we got permission to have a small, AKC sanctioned dog show at a fellow Irish Terrier person's house. I'm going out by my IT mentor's house this weekend to start grooming Riri for an official dog show. I had no idea just how much work is involved. I'm not sure I would have entered her had I known. Lol She's going to be in the veteran's group. Not only do I get to show my dog but I'm also going to be her handler. It's next month and I'm very excited. I'm happy for those who have the younger IT showdogs because they need shows to get points. We're going to be face masking, etc. I went on a five state trek to get another Irish Terrier. His name is Flannigan. He's five years old. He is now owned by the person with whom I raised Bruff, my first Irish Terrier. Riri is being quite the bich to Flannigan. (literally) I have had to tear them apart many times. I got bit three times. Two bites were very nasty. (none was on purpose-put your hand between two dogs fighting and you take a risk, which I knew) I have since heeded my Irish Terrier mentor's words: "You dumb ass. Pull them by the tail instead." It works! We got a great picture of both dogs trying to get up a birch tree so they could munch a squirrel. It's really cute. We were told to send it into the IT calendar. It looks like there's a good chance they are going to be in the North American Irish Terrier calendar for 2021. I can't express how much better life is now that I have Riri. I am ecstatic that my buddy now has Flannigan. I've beome his IT mentor.
  6. I had a Covid scare yesterday. I woke up very sick with a fever. I called my doctor's office. Within 30 minutes, my call was returned. A little over an hour later, I was tested. 6 hours after that,. the test results came back as negative and were in my online medical chart I use. I feel very fortunate that it was negative. I also feel fortunate I was able to get such a quick response and even faster results. Anyhow, I'm sick but it's not Covid. My dog is being extra sweet. She won't leave my side. I'm not sure if it's to comfort me or if it's so she has an excuse to be extra naughty on the leash. (lots of baby bunnies this time of year by me) I'll take it either way. .Said bunnies are now seeking revenge by running all the way up the block(s) instead of dashing to the other side of the street when they see us coming.
  7. Mimi Jones - Civil Rights Activist 1947 - 2020. Mimi Jones in 2017, standing in front of the pool in Malcolm X Park in Roxbury. She is holding an iconic photo of the Monson Motor Lodge manager pouring acid into the pool when she and other civil rights activists were holding a swim-in protest at the St. Augustine, Fla., motel on June 18, 1964. An interesting part of this story: 16 Rabbis also got arrested for swimming in support of civil rights. I did not know that until I was reading more on her life and this story. . .
  8. Happy Birthday to The Edge..
  9. Sorry I could not be here again. I've been very busy trying to get two Irish Terriers not to rip each other's throats out as they both learn I'm boss.. I'm bruised, battered and achy. So worth it but really sucks I can't be at these parties. Perhaps the next one... I hope you had fun.
  10. sorry, dmway. Did not realize what you were doing. If I can, I'll be here.
  11. It is available: https://www.u2.com/stream/LiveInBerlin I also had problems finding it.
  12. Imagine, after everything John Lewis faced, receiving the highest cinilian honor The United States Of America's can bestow, from a fellow black man who just so happened to be President of The United States Of America. I can't even begin to fathom what both men must have felt in that moment. We've lost too many great black leaders in the past year or so. Read through these lists, if you have a couple minutes. They are quite remarkable. https://newsone.com/playlist/notable-deaths-2019/item/1 https://newsone.com/playlist/notable-deaths-2020/item/60
  13. Former President Barack Obama is giving Mr. Lewis' euology in eight hours, at 11 am ET.
  14. Undeniably so. Hope!
  15. I don't know. Perhaps this is our answer. This happened yesterady while John Lewis was lying in state in the United States of America's Capitol Rotunda.
  16. I did not realize this was on YouTube. My hair is standing on end. I would endure that heat and sunshine for these ten minutes alone. I had to tell myself to let it go when I couldn't stop wondering if they'd actually do One Tree Hill or not. I was so excited I almost missed Moment of Surrender. Correction to an earlier post about Vertigo: The Wildness tour was not the first time I saw Snow Patrol. They opened for U2 the first time the 360 tour hit Chicago. Wildness was the first time I saw Snow Patrol play a full show. I must have been having a pandemic DUH moment. 😳 That or I'm forgetting cuz I'm still jealous Larry gave his drumstick to someone else and not me? 😝
  17. I'm always up for a virtual viewing. I don't know if I can. Screen time determines that. If I can, I don't have any of those DVD's either.
  18. Found my ticket stub for that 360 show.. I completely forgot that the couple in front of us decided to stand for the fancam. No way I could have tagged myself but I wanted to smack them! 😛 Whenever I think of 360 at Soldier Field, I think of One Tree Hill. I could not believe they were doing it. I almost started with the, "See? They always do something cool the last night of Chicago." speech when I realized my buddy was gonna give me the same look I was giving him when he was whining about the sunshine and heat. Lol It was a lot of fun going through all my ticket stubs-so many memories of so many great concerts I've been fortunate enough to see over the years.
  19. John Lewis is now the first black man to lie in state in the United States of America's Capitol Rotunda.
  20. Duvernay-Tardif says he started to think about people who were going through tougher times — including the physicians he knew from medical school. "I have friends who are working in emergency rooms. One does triage and tests patients for COVID-19. Those people are on the front line, and they're giving everything to protect us," he writes. "I cannot allow myself to potentially transmit the virus in our communities simply to play the sport that I love," Laurent Duvernay-Tardif wrote Instead, he is sitting out the season and going back to work as a doctor to help fight Covid-19.
  21. I'm watching it right now. I hope they do name it after him. I never thought of that.
  22. Representative John Lewis "The conscience of the Congress" of my country. He was severely beaten for marching across this bridge, if anyone does not know.. February 21, 1940 – July 17, 2020.
  23. We could have bought one? How did I miss that? I'm trying to find myself in the pic at the Chicago show. Sadly, I need to find my ticket stub. I've been in Solider Field enough times to know where my seat is without looking at a TM map but I can't remember what section for that show. I blame it on the pandemic. 😀
