RE: Positivity / Good News Only Lounge
I had a swelling on my upper back and have a history of skin cancer in my family. I went to the dermatologist when it was really flaring up fearing the worst and he says it’s a benign cyst and is infected . It’s not cancer but will require a round of antibiotics and a minor surgical procedure. I was sweating for a day or 2 up until I saw the doctor.

This was right before open enrollment on nov 1. If I buy insurance now it would kick in January 1. I’m paying out of pocket for the surgery and it’s only 1000 dollars(at first I thought I might have to take a trip to Mexico and have the surgery there but that won’t really be worthwhile now. But I digress I’ve been so freaking happy the last few days. If my building burns down and I lose everything I would be like “I’m so freaking happy!”

I’m guessing this will wear off in a few weeks and I’ll go back to normal but right now I’m on cloud nine

I went out and shoveled the driveway, when I came back inside my wife had made cookies and hot tea for me.

RE: Positivity / Good News Only Lounge
I got a offer letter from a new job that I interviewed at.

(I wasn't working for almost a month after I quit my jobs - had other offers, but didn't want to just jump into a new job again. Organized my personal finances, went out, went to concerts, meet friends, read books, ate different food, etc...)

The interviewer who would be my boss told me I would get my decision in two days, but was surprised that it was in my email today, which is just one day after the interview.

15% increase in hourly pay, and my OT would be $30/hr+
I mean if I do get OT, I won't be mad...if I don't get much OT, that's fine with me. Balanced lifestyle.

Oh, they are also paying my lunch/phone bill/shelter since I do have to relocate. However, it's only a little bit longer than an hour away, I can always come back to my town lol
That dramatically lowers my expenses to almost 1k a month. I would only be responsible for my car payment, insurance, gas, some food that I do eat out, etc.

RE: Positivity / Good News Only Lounge
I went on vacation again to the Baltics. Came back this weekend. I have been planning on buying some land and eventually saving to build a retirement house there. I went to one of the places I had seen for sale online. I made a vow to myself that even if that place Inlooked at was not for sale when I can save up some money. Come hell or high water, I will do it. I said yes. So, all things are possible to those whom beleive.

Without going into too much detail, I needed a certain shaped piece of steel tube for a project. I thought about phoning around to have it made up but decided to measure it and keep my eye out for something that I might be able to adapt or have machined to fit, which would be much cheaper. A couple of days later I found a part of a trailer that had come off a truck passing my house. I picked it up and threw it in the back of the ute. Today I measured it up and trial fitted it. It was exactly what I needed. To the 0.5 millimetre (20 thou) in inside diameter, outside diameter, length, and radius. All I need to do is cut it to length on one end.
The exact part I needed literally fell off the back of a truck, right in my driveway.

Ok. That's none of our business.

Alright fine. I needed a piece of steel tube with a 22.5 mm inside diameter and 30mm outside diameter, with a straight section 220 mm long then a gentle 90 degree bend.

I have a theory that the word Aluminum was only invented because some prominent American at the time couldn't pronounce "Aluminium".

3hr hike with the GF. Sunny, warm, fresh air... middle of November.

Sat on a boulder eating an orchard apple that was grown within 30min of here, drinking some basic black tea. Watching the shafts of light coming through the trees, layered with the shadows, along the tall grass and the soil.

Later, home, warming the insides with homemade (right down to the broth) borscht.

Phone call with parents and grandma. Pet the cat. Grilled some lamb and crushed a stunning bottle of local wine.

Now typing to you internet friends. A day of endless riches.

Ask a Tenessee redneck to say aluminium. They can't. Ask an Australian (or look in the mirror and say) HOOD. They can't. It's why they say bonnet.

I pet the lamb and grilled a cat.

That's a joke. I'm glad you had a good day. I did too.

From now until a little after Thanksgiving really big fish come right to the front of my house. I caught a monster ulua aka trevally from a pole attached to my fence. I also taught this balloon head neighbor kid how to fish. He knows my secret chocolate squid technique now. I also gave him a fish to round out the parable. All told, about 15 fish were caught. Then I took these concrete sidewalk slabs out to the sandy bottom parts and laid them down with some chocolate squid underneath. Tomorrow Ill swim out, pull them up and there will be lobsters galore. Add those to todays catch and my Veterans day bbq is totally catered.


Aloha!
