& G’day Squirrel Fans, hope I find you bright eyed & bushy tailed!

My brain is not working well today so apologies to all.
I’m currently hermiting in my room, I may venture out in an hour or so when herself has left for the office & go track down some breakfast.

I’m likely gonna lurk, the world is a dark (literally & figuratively) place & I have zero resilience at the moment.

I will respond to folk, but most likely with a like & possibly a short answer, please don’t be offended , I simply lack the capacity for more right now.

Have a cracking day & remember : Don’t let ‘em Cash-ew ! 😊🫶🐿️🖖 @weirdfolks

Why the government nixed deposit on soft drink cans, bottles

"By abandoning deposit-return, the government bowed to pressure from the supermarket chains, said Wallis of Environmental Defence.

When it comes to who pays for dealing with the

👉 Maybe we should reduce our use of containers

I get so many replies from people who live outside of the US, from all over the world (as well as right here in Canada from people we engage with face to face) asking, “How did this happen in the US?”

I give them the same response I gave Mr. Laffy when he asked why I wanted to move to Canada:

Trump has the courts. Despite other ways to try to counter, it’s the courts that make this feel so damn insurmountable.

But we still never give up. EVER.

I will copy and paste with one minor variation...a space in the account's address:

@ axat One day that might be true but to advise that now is foolhardy, reckless and irresponsible.

@GottaLaff that account has been open since March 2020, only 12 followers,

“Great spirits”? After people died. After he could have died.

But I guess he was anticipating the insta-tee shirts with his raised fist/bloody face image, the adulation, and milking this for all it’s worth.

“Trump's staff said in an internal memo that he was "in great spirits" after the shooting, which left one dead and three wounded, including the former president.” https://www.ktvb.com/article/news/nation-world/trump-calls-for-unity-attempted-assassination-at-rally/507-5606f7db-7b4a-4147-a86d-332c9dfa749d

I unblocked him and checked his account and went through his replies.

    "too far offshore to worry anyone. No tsunami warnings.They have been having clusters of quakes over the past couple of weeks or so, the previous largest one around 5.5"
