  1. Awe Dew. That sucks. My sister is alone but she has a cat and her doggie. Just hang in there friend.
  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhahahahahhahaha! My friend is on Fox News pushing a new COVID drug. LOL. Just got a text to turn it on. He’s a sheep expert turned pharmaceutical expert. LOL. They’re saying how great he is. He once got us all so plastered on single malts. Anyhow he promised if we honestly wanted to relocate to the UK he’d set us up with work BUT refuses to believe we actually do. He’s a great guy. Hope this works out but honestly everyone I know is working on their own COVID drug now and of course their idea is going to work. This guy really does think outside of the box though. we’ll see clinical trials are starting next week I guess.
  3. Man. I can’t stand that I’m so digging isolating. I love not having to go anywhere. I can screw around doing all my little chores. OH!!! Of course you all know!! I think my nick name was Little House on The Prairie for a time here. I’m not spinning wool or churning butter. But I am making clotted cream right now. I of course can make a fine loaf of bread with 1/8th of a teaspoon of yeast and 2 1/2 cups of flour. I’m not sewing because everyone else and his brother already is. And I hate it. Same reason I’m not knitting. Our dogs are so insanely happy to have us here. I saved my Roosters life by chasing away the fox trying to catch him! What a good guy he is. The rooster. The fox is a jerkoff. I’m not doing much binge TV watching. My daughter is watching New Girl. That’s cute. Our sheep will probably lamb soon. At least one will. We have had a bunch of calls for people wanting lambs too. I guess everyone wants to do the hobby farm thing. Everyone is getting chickens here. Sooooo. I LOVE my little hill. We’re awash in ramps. Have to start morel hunting now. We have 3 kinds of awesome mushrooms that grow here. My crazy boy dog eats the wacky kind that grow on our manure pile . I have had a gazillion dreams but nothing too noteworthy. I love all the free ballet classes going around on Instagram. And I love that my family is stuck with me 24/7. I can’t believe how well we’re getting along. What’s stircrazy even? Hope everyone is well. I’m worried for our extended family but must keep our distance so..
  4. Oh man I am COVID-19 drunk AF!!!!!!!!!!! dear lord. Thank god I didn’t post whatever that mess I had down here was. Even I have no f&$%~£¥ idea what the hellI was even starting to get at. ?????? so. Yes. Totally ripped last night! Dark & Stormies. 150proof rum. My husband went online video hosted shopping at his favorite store in CT. ... he bought a bow tie with pointer dogs on it. Whimsical wedding attire? Lord knows. Anyhow. Here’s the thing. We were up at 6:30 AM. No hangover. And blowing a horn-in-a-can to get our daughter out of bed to help with the sheep. I’m so impressed with my 52 year old self!!!! My tea totaling daughter was rather impressed as well. I’m a light weight no question it’s so great to have this land. It’s like a nature preserve we have all to ourselves. I’m enjoying isolation. BUT sad because we would have been in a plane on our way to Heathrow this very second were it not for the pandemic. Very worried about our friends over there Anyhow. Hope Devils hockey fans are safe and sound! XO
  5. Scotty! I forgot to say HappyBirthday!! Because I know you were checking even.... My husband just had his birthday too. We had a virtual party with his work buddies. He’s losing weight because he’s not partying and drinking like he would be. Haha haha! I’m having tons of dreams. My rem sleep percentage is like 16-25%. Stevens has featured in a few but nothing amusing or otherwise remarkable. Jon Hamm was in one too. I think because of theCurb Your Enthusiasm commercials. We were just kind of hanging out. He was amusing. Nothing weird abnormal or .. ya know... just like hanging out cracking jokes and taking pot shots at people. why do I never dream about famous women? The Allison Janney one was about the only one I can recall of late. OK. My social distancing is showing now ... life is good - love my hobby farm in the woods on a mountain side It’s nice to basically live on my own private park as annoying as it is to hike up a hill to get to our pasture . So... be well all!!!
  6. Scott Stevens dream. I was watching a news panel and they were asking Bob Ojeda why he was so slim. He had his shirt off and looked shy and pretty jacked to be honest. Then the camera panned over toScott Stevens and Tom Brady who were also on this panel and they were in huge shoulder pads and jerseys laughing at poor Ojeda. Their heads looked tiny compared to the rest of their body. So, yeah. No idea what that meant. Hope everyone is well and happy and healthy. We’re all doing well here but I hate to be so far from my parents. Glad for the internet and smartphones!
  7. New dream. In the Star Wars world. I think I was with a Mandalorian. (). Really good one though I remember none of it. Oh and no baby Yoda yeah I like baby yoda the little freak I must be content or something.
  8. Man. One of the Scotland women’s rugby team tested positive for covid19. Sucks if you played them in the last three weeks! Toddlers are asymptotic FYI. Little Typhoid Marys who don’t get it but kill off their poor grandparents. This settles it. gawd hates the baby boomers too. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand.. Im goin ta hell
  9. Dream report. About no one BUT it was complete music! How cool is that? I’m not sure I’ve done before. It didn’t feel weird at all and given my history why would it even? It beats the sh!t out of the “good god I have no idea what my next line is” dream. i wonder what sorts of dreams retired hockey players have. Like —- they forgot their skates? Or missed the bus to the game. I’ve had that one! You’re with friends but the tour bus is scheduled to leave and you have NO idea how you’re getting to the bus in time. You sit there talking frozen and not telling anyone you have to go. You just have this ridiculous internal panic. Oh I hate that one. I. The I forgot my lines ones I usually just go out there and it all works out somehow and I think we’ll this isn’t so bad. Or else I’ve woken up before even having to go on - like a falling 20stories dream.
  10. Scott Stevens says “ No. No Pepperkorn, no one thinks that”
  11. So no one thinks Brodeur and the owners were hangin out drinking and Marty began to hold forth about Shero sucking and more drinks were downed and pretty soon Marty was sounding like a genius and soon the phrase “crazy... so crazy it just might work” got bandied about and - well - the rest is history .
  12. Well you’ve always had my prayers and well wishes . I’ll keep ‘em coming
  13. yeah....well.... ya gotta love me anyhow
  14. Hey Dew. Hope all is well. There’s been a rash of family trauma in our household. Uncles dying and having heart attacks. My side everyone is fairly ancient so it’s not as traumatic. My husbands are in the same era as my older sisters so that’s always an eye opener. I think it must have been that. Concerns about self-destructive behavior and stuff. Heart attack uncle got the same bright idea as so many of my dude friends!!! He divorced his wife and floundered then married a younger version of much the same and started another family thinking he was feeling young again. Then he lost his job which he’d had forever as well. Of course it was a massive trauma! New wife doesn’t know him well enough to be supportive just be a bossy miserable c*^+. He’s freaking out - kind of being a stay at home dad which he dreamed he’d love — but he’s just not 20-30 anymore. So... then he’s flat on his back in a hospital. His old wife is checking in with the family finding ways to help him out. She’s happy with a new guy but now she’s worried about her old husband, you know? It’s great and it’s killing hard to be a family person. Both my old man and I have very tight clannish families. And his is HUGE! Mine is a nice uptight modest little family. Oh yeah. And what about over population? He’s a screaming liberal and yet no concept about population control Dude HAD his kids. Now he’s spawning MORE so he can feel all youthful? I’m so mad at him but glad he’s OK too. He made his own bed. His brothers are dropping too so I’m sure that wasn’t any help. He’s charmingly neurotic— as much as one can be outside of a Woody Allen movie
  15. Holy mother of G-d who is reading this? I feel guilty even writing that. The whole name in vain thing traumatizes me even thought intellectually I know it shouldn’t. Like the whole Jesus thing. It’s like how do you NOT believe? and yet know it’s mythology ... and NOW Im goin ta hell. So. I had traumatic dreams. Two. About friend taking risks and ending up killing themselves. One dude wore electric bracelet kind of things. Then another a female friend drove us into a lake. We all lived and then before anyone could stop her she dove back into her sinking car to retrieve her purse and drowned. So. Theres something
  16. Watching Rare Exports has been my favorite Christmas movie for 4 years now. Next to A Christmas Carol of course. Alistair Sims followed by Patrick Stewart’s followed by Reginald Owen. ANYHOW Rare Exports: It’s THE cutest most little boy movie EVER. It’s Finnish but don’t let that stop you from watching. It must be watched even when you feel yourself doubting it’s worth!!!!
  17. the Devils now do the walk of shame the cameras get The fisheye
  18. The way the guys acted after the firing tells me it was totally on Hynes. They were all mortified beyond sorry and sad. That was dread on those little boy faces not shame. Hynes made it real cushy for them.
  19. Stevens kids are probably having their own kids about now. His youngest is 22 I guestimated based on my own daughters age. I think his youngest was 6 when my 16 year old was born. Anyhow - piss on that. I wouldn’t wish these aholes on any first time head coach. I’d much rather a happy Stevens taking pot shots from his arm chair. Or, you know, broadcasterschair so Ican ogle him Thanks for that video btw
  20. I really don’t think he can handle the whole job. I just don’t think he knows how to delegate but thinks he does. HE can see how they’re best for their job but they aren’t fulfilling his vision. He IS the disconnect. There is something he’s just not grasping about managing every aspect simultaneously. The details are not getting sorted. I can garner the vision the big picture and from all angles. But I can’t see that it’s really gelling. I’m sure he can talk it through and you walk away satisfied and feeling focused but when you show up for work it’s probably just like OK I did all that and... I got nothin’. There it all is now why does it suck so bad?

    Subban

    He’s just playing like a guy without a clear sense of purpose. The roles aren’t being articulated beyond (I imagine) “you’re my (fill in the blank) guy - now go out there and do that thing you do!” None of the guys are really meshing and no one is clear on stepping up and defining roles for everyone. No one is telling them what they need to do to have purpose, you know?
  22. Wow and I thought I over think things Dude got fired. And anyone really needs to ask why? The team are spoiled little fvcks for the most part. There’s too much bullsh!tting around. You just look at them — all I could think is what the hell are you dipsh!ts smiling about? What the fvck with all this ego? Massive flashing sparkling teeth ego backed up by ZERO confidence Hmmmm who’s really to blame for them feeling so tri-state superstar? Ray Shero and his bumble*ucking PR team. It’s one thing to try to sell that bs to fans but a totally other thing when your stupid men-child players believe it. Hall is the only guy looking grumpy and NOT prancing around for photo ops Subban is paid to do that and he’s got a lot going on just figuring the lay of the land and all. I have surprisingly little problem with that. I’ve actually found his presence really clarifying in a crazy way His trying to figure out the Devils game just made it very clear there is none and that’s Hynes and ultimately Shero. The focus on hockey just floundered it’s so hard to find that balance. I’d rather have it too hockey heavy than to marketing heavy but honestly you all didn’t want that. So this is what it feels like to go over to the other side of the pendulum swing. Never won even on the way over though did they? Leaving the Lou guy in as Captain — good lord. Who ever thought that was a good idea? It’s trying to hold something you let go of. It’s an example of how there is no real knowledgeable plan It’s like a sh!tty cook - a little of Lou’s special sauce, and hmm. Some maple syrup that’s Canadian right? And what else do you think of when I say hockey... Good lord just find a single voice for this team one clear point of focus. Just — this is just so stupid and blurry and just tackling far too much all these broad brush strokes with no apparent over-all plan. Whatever. I can’t even get analytical because there’s been nowhere to delve the strategy is just so mixed — whatever. Just play hockey don’t see anything else Just the nice clean game of hockey
  23. I had another dream! i was working for TomEllis and he was running a company. I was a secretary and he was writing massively going apesh!t and I had a great idea but no way to get his attention. Then he finally rushed out of his office smiled at me while rushing by and booped me in the clavicle. I was thinking “sh!t he knew me but I still didn’t tell him my idea!” Then it morphed into a new dream which was fun but pretty run of the mill so I’ll spare you Scott Stevens! Step it up man! I’d like a nice Scotty dream please. I think you must have achieved career contentment or something.
  24. Cardiff Devils were in green and red as well this weekend. They must love NJ. It must be a thing. .
