This is what I learned this weekend:

1. I really fucking hate painting.

2. The Little Things was a waste of time. I was looking forward to it and they kind of wasted Jared Leto's performance.

10. Chrissy is looking for a new job. I guess Ocean Spray is eliminating positions due to Covid.

12. How many babies will now be born due to this pandemic? Another baby boom?

1. Wait I thought it was flu season? I have not heard of one case of the flu yet...kinda weird.

2. Joey Martell said he heard the state will be going back into a lock down in 3 weeks, the Monday after Thanksgiving. No more gyms, no more eating out, no more anything.

4. Leaden's looking for an apartment if you know of any.

6. After 5-6 years of searching, placing several offers on places to only have them pull the house off the market, finally purchased a Cape house.

"HONDURAS, Hurricane Relief Donations

 As many of you may know, The country of Honduras has been devastated with floods, mudslides, and destruction caused by Hurricane ETA. There’s been multiple casualties and tens of thousands of its residents have seen their homes destroyed and damaged and subsequently been displaced with no where to go and no food to to eat. Entire cities, Towns, and villages are under water.  A lot of the regions infrastructure has been decimated making it difficult for people to receive local aid. Means of communication have been severely impacted making it difficult for loved ones to check on each other.

In the next couple of weeks I will be conducting a canned food, shoes and  clothing drive in the Boston area to ship and try to provide some relief for these hurricane victims. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. I will be accepting Used and New Shoes/Clothes for men, women, children, and infants. Sheets/blankets. Canned foods. Baby formula, pampers. Cooking pots and pans.

 You can reach him at (857)212-2280 via text for donation pick up or delivery."

https://gf.me/u/y7rvzw if you can donate anything please help out.

Count down

 I can't be the only person counting down till 2021. I mean these last 59 days can't move by fast enough.


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. Are people still entitled to their own opinion? Or only if it fit with yours?

2. When the Covid vaccine comes out are you getting it?

3. Since there wasn't much in the way of trick or treating, I saw many people forced inside to host small parties...so wait for the numbers to spike the next 2 weeks.

5. You motherfuckers love to post your Snap Chat memories from 3 years ago. no one really gave a fuck then and they sure as shit don't care now.
