Sorry to hear that Michael. Take care my friend. THoughts are with you.

Having been through this with both parents I can only say that yes it is a wretched time, but (I can only speak for myself here) tempered with some small sense of relief/closure when thinking about how the future could have played out.

My condolences Mikel....but a comfort to hear how peaceful she left.

Sorry to hear that yomp, my best wishes are with you and yours.

It's been a bastard of a year for parents of BCB-ers this year so far, if any of you are lucky enough to have parents left, take care of them. I'm just off to cover my mum in bubble-wrap.

Very very tough time for you and yours Michael - there's really very little anyone can say to help, but I do remember how comforting it was just knowing people cared.

Peace to your Mum and deepest condolences to you all.

- car wouldn't start this morning
- they spilled my drink on me at the drive through
- parking garage entry was closed
- paperwork was all delayed
- then I had to update THAT based on delayed information
- clients acting up, being complicated
- star employee's mother had another stroke, she's half paralyzed so he can't work
- other star employee struggling not to be homeless on our terrible pay so he can't work
- office ceiling has been dripping for a week...sometimes it's like a downpour
- bank entrance was closed
- assistant getting some procedure so she can't work
- that means I'm here until 10pm
- daughter decided to up and pee in the middle of the school playground
- long-time employee nearly cried while I was giving him a terrible performance review

basically fuck this most "Monday" of Mondays

The Eagles Greatest Hits has now overtaken Thriller as the best-selling LP of all-time in the US.

Who wants to know what the third best-selling album is?

Hotel California.


Streaming, folks. It's how they calculate sales now.
