Accidentally killed one of my favorite chickens tonight. She somehow broke her top beak on 10/4 and we've been trying to hand feed her since until she got the hang of eating differently. Tonight we put a little too much wet feed down her and it went down her wind pipe and suffocated her. She's the only one of my chickens that would jump on my lap daily to be pet and she was the top of the pecking order.

I feel absolutely sick about it right now. This is a tragic hobby sometimes.

RIP Rose

Sorry to hear man, that sucks.

Bitcoin at 60k this morning. Once the FOMO bandwagon starts rolling, barring any black swans, it’s going to 80k, probably by Turkey Day.  
Thereafter I would anticipate a sizable pull back around the Holidays. 

Have seen a nice bump this month.  By pure luck I didn’t have any holdings in the dip/sell off previously.

Just feeling awful today,  was doing okay the last few months , but feeling really depressed about my situation.  Being alone in the house sucks. Really miss my father. 

Can you reach out to a family or friend? If not…is there a professional you could speak to?

Life is hard. We’re here for you if/when you ever need to talk.

Worse than hard, Dad died with a reverse mortgage,  tons of debt,  no life insurance  the mortgage company wants to foreclose. I'm divorced and living alone.  My one solace is my son lives in town.  I see him a few times a month.  I did get accepted into the disabled housing program waiting list in my town.  Hoping to stay here as long as possible.  Hopefully into next year. Probably looking at getting an apartment next Spring.

Sorry to hear that, glad you reached out to someone, you have a friend to call or want to talk to us? After I lost my mother I had to seek a therapist, started drinking too much and needed help. I hear you brother.

This is mind boggling to me.  It’s obviously not the only issue but the fact that cranes aren’t working all the time (staggering breaks) is absurd if true.

“Truckers unlucky enough to be waiting around lunchtime will watch as the entire crane crew stops work, instead of staggering their hours.

“They leave for two hours, and you are stuck with no one there,” trucker Brian said.”

Chris sale sucks for third straight Game. Velocity was there but he can’t seem to locate . I’m sick of this guy being coddled like no Boston Star has. He pitched very well in several starts this summer and now in 3 straight games he in effect “chokes”. What other players seem to get a pass in media failing in big spots like this in Fenway...
 

Is Sale that fragile that Cora has to coddle him every time he stinks in a big spot?

Unions are not always a good thing. They can be obstinate even in a crisis. 

I think unions are good for negotiating fair wages, benefits, standard review and safety practices.....but it seems they more often than not protect the bad employees versus the good.

Don’t give up and try to focus on things that make you happier. I know…easier said than done but that’s all I can provide for you at this time. Keep the dialog going with your therapist too and family and friends. Life can be shitty but also amazing. Stay strong.

Cora talked about that, his change up is his best pitch and the hardest to get the feel for after Tommy John, he came back too soon. Someone like Evoldi whose pitch is the fastball can come back quicker. We got 3 innings out of him and going to need him to get better to win anything.

My thing is I don’t think that is the biggest issue 

He pitched 5 innings many starts this year and was good when he came back . He had 7-8 K’s in Baltimore and was killing it ...then he slipped on mound and hasn’t had ability to locate since then And hasn’t pitched well to say the least .

I was hoping he'd come back a little stronger. Then you trade him in the off-season when he has value.

I know and the writing was on the wall on that one.   I had this imagined scene of fans kinda turnin heads back and forth at each other, collectively thinking 'Uhmm is this gonna end wall?' - but they knew.   You could just feel the energy in the stadium of that sauce before it sprayed, right through the TV. 

Baseball is like that.  It's the most prescient sport there is
