It isn't Funny

It has been a rough three weeks and I have not felt like doing anything. Reading the news feeds is enough to drain every drop of enthusiasm out of my body. Some days I didn't even turn on the computer. When I did, MS informed me that Windows needed an update from 1809 to 2004 (aka 2020-1). Of course it didn't work. My IT guy in Delhi told me how to do it manually and that worked just fine. Of course once installed it gives even more problems as it adjusts, has extra downloads and in general makes chaos until it settles. Finally got my IT guy to spend a couple hours to sort out some problems caused by left overs from deleted programs, namely System Mechanic which was trying to control things.

I have deleted or archived all my livestock related stuff. We'll see how long it lasts but I just wasn't using it.

I have only one political cartoon and then a few others to lighten things a bit though they don't help me right now.
It seems appropo to the situation
I have learned that:

  • Protesters protest, looters and arsonists loot and burn, police riot.
  • If violence doesn't solve anything, why does the establishment turn to violence the instant they feel threatened in any way, as we saw during the OWS protests?
  • Many of the cities with out of control police are run by Democrats.
  • Canada has a serious police brutality problem with Blacks and Indigenous for the same reason America does.

Yes, we need good LOLs and memes to keep our spirits up in these depressing times. My faves are the "lemonade cleanse" and the singing cat!

"Send us a picture of your junk" - LOL! The singing cat made me laugh, too. I've almost completely stopped reading the news - I just skim the headlines. They're depressing enough.

Jackiesue, I should send you a link to my collections for memes and cartoons. Steal any that appeal to you.
Diane, same. Maybe read 10% of the articles that go by either in my email or on FB. Lots of repetitive stuff.
