    It is the first Official Juneteenth day recognized as a federal holiday. Where is the DB support and recognition of this?

    Lots of businesses didn't get the day off. Hardly anyone even knows about Juneteenth, let alone that it became a legal, federal holiday in the United States.

    Next year I'm sure it will be common knowledge. :)

    They could not even stop the US Postal service on that short notice and mail will and was delivered. Friday and Sat.

    Its ok if the game did nothing. Your boss probably didn't either.

    We have only just had a bonus, one every few weeks is quite sufficient, you only have to wait until 4th July for the next one.

    Trust the yanks to come up with such a stuipd name, Juneteenth seriously. :rolleyes:

    Think of it as evolution in action.

    I understand your eye roll at the name, it has always struck me that way as well. But it's not the 'yanks' who created Juneteenth, it was created by Black Americans who had recently been made 'freemen' post-Civil-War, after being in slavery for a couple hundred years. Under the circumstances I feel I can check my privilege at the door and accept the odd name as given.

    What is Juneteenth? Nevermind, but any excuse to celebrate works for me. :)

    Trump made a pretty big deal about it last year (Juneteenth) but then again he could have cured cancer and people would have complained he took work away from doctors.

    Are scientists finally having some success at stopping cancer growth by marking up re-branded steaks and wine? Or is this that thing where every time you bankrupt a casino, a tissue cell gets to defeat a cancer cell in a battle to the death? I guess this could just be that thing where you lie and say the cancer is gone, that's probably been his most successful shtick so far...

    Doubt there was much time to set it up this year. Expect something next year is my thought.

    Or he could tell folks to inject cleaning projects into themselves and I bet he wouldn't even get a Nobel for that. The unfairness of it all.

    That reminds me of a fellow I knew who truly, passionately, believed that medical grade hydrogen peroxide was the cure for almost anything. He was a bit of a broken record on the subject. Any argument that ran counter to his beliefs was a conspiracy that threatened us all. It does amaze me that so many people believe things that they can't explain clearly and seem to be unable to provide any proof of. Part of life I suppose, and not a new phenomenon at all.

    Probably black bunnies or white bunnies.

    There are not enough bunnies in the world. :D

    If she takes enough, she will have no issues at all. Now there's a thought.

    P.S. I do need to correct myself vis-a-vis a previous post. This article offers the suggestion that hydrogen peroxide may help with Lyme disease:

    I'd have to see more quotable documentation that hydrogen peroxide is produced by WBCs. Peroxide as we know it is highly watered down. At normal/high concentrations it's rocket fuel.
  19. Nennius Curmudgeon

    Warning!!!! Bad joke coming.





    So, if I take enough concentrated peroxide I could get REALLY HIGH!
