So it turns out my daughter who believes thoroughly in the gender self-ID nonsense, actually acknowledges that humans are a sexually dimorphic species.

She came down last night after her online driving class to tell us about how airbags are designed using crash test dummies based on men, which is why women are more likely to be injured by the airbag, and children can be killed by them.

I kept this observation to myself, but it amused me. Hubby noticed it too.

The tan and gray dog is an Australian Terrier. I’d never seen one before. I think he turned out very nice considering all I had to go by are internet photos of show dogs. They have a fascinating ruff around the neck that I’ve never seen on any other breed.

On 11/19, we had a 100’+ tall mature Douglas Fir taken down into rounds at the front of the house and piled in my driveway. It was 32” in diameter at 4’6” (DBH) from the ground.

Today it is entirely split and ready to season. I probably did 1/2 of it myself with a 30 ton hydraulic splitter.

Now, about the 3 more trees taken down on the 17th and piled on my next door neighbor’s driveway…

Had another argument with daughter.

She basically says I shouldn’t defend MAGA when 10% it, like in any group, are toxic, and then get upset about the 10% of trans people who are toxic.

I do think biology differs from politics. Once again it ended with, I don’t want to talk about this anymore.

Just so you know what the error is, this is the error I get when attempt to load VIP Room vids using the app. All other QV vids load, but not the membership only VIP ones.

I can access via my regular browser, so that is what I do. But prefer the app because my phone can multitask while I listen.

As usual, nothing I voted for won. Mmwell, that’s WA state for you.

I dropped my ballot in a ballot box today rather than put it in the mail early. There is piss-all chance of WA turning red but they still shouldn’t get to play games.

Neighbor advised her to call 911 and report her self so that it would not be hit and run. There is no damage to the plastic bumper cover of our van, and unlikely any to the trailer hitch or steel bumper of the truck. Eventually, someone called our daughter back from state patrol probably, and said the other driver did not call it in, so she could go.

All this is to say that I do see how someone could panic. I do.

I hope the driver who struck that woman and her dog is caught soon.

Thursday, my youngest was on a drive to see her friend. Traffic was stop and go and it was raining very hard. At one point, she bumped the pick up truck in front of her with our minivan. The pickup truck pulled off to the shoulder, but she panicked and kept driving. By the time she reached me because my phone was out of earshot, about 15 minutes had elapsed and that’s how far she had driven. I advised her to pull off immediately and wait while I consulted our retired LEO neighbor.

Local woman and her dog were struck in a hit-and-run. The woman was grievously injured and faces a long recovery. The dog died. :( They are raising money for medical bills. I suppose if/when the driver is caught, his insurance may help. If he has any.

I hope the man is caught. He probably panicked and doesn’t know how to proceed, but that doesn’t fix the problem.

I haven’t been able to load the latest VIP room, and I know that I am Quad on steroids or something. But I can’t figure out if it’s my wireless or some thing else.

Yesterday I spent over an hour trying to get my 25 year old Select Comfort mattress to inflate/top up. The pump kept turning on and off at rapid intervals.

Well I got it to DEflate - slowly - which was not an improvement.

Finally checked the tube from the pump. Oh. It had a kink in it.

I’m sure there is a pun to be made here about kinks and beds.

Reading Kurt Schlichter’s newest book, Inferno.

Totally not my usual genre. Love this series.

I can report that my kid seems happier since I talked to her the other day. Being told we can’t stop her, even if we disagree and worry, seems to have unburdened her.

It is a welcome change except for the reason. :(
