Best of luck, and good on you for checking with the Dr first.

I take my Zoloft even though it doesn't do anything just to avoid tapering off.

Good luck Zoe, a month is good though, some doctors try and do it in 2 weeks which had never worked for me, but a month and you should hopefully be good to go.


I hate the sound of studded tires on cars, the noise it makes is like nails on a chalk board for me.

This 11'8" bridge in the US gets hit so much, has its own youtube channel. Looks like they raised it last year, its 12'4" now but still not high enough...lol (lots of rental trucks, and with some of these companies even if you buy the insurance it often doesn't cover damage to the top because so many end up doing this to trucks, so your liable out of pocket.)

My wife's mom found a bear claw in her back yard, no bear though.

Seems another predator or scavenger left it.

I had no idea Canada in the mid 1950's to 1969 nearly wiped out the basking shark population.

They were very common in BC waters and the Canadian government considered them a nuisance so they devised an eradication plan to eradicate this harmless plankton eating shark from BC waters, using a special blade on the bows of vessels that would slice through the sharks to kill them.

It's estimated Canada wiped out 90% of the population of basking sharks that would migrate up the coast to BC in the summer from wintering grounds in Mexico and California.

Scientists estimate there are 300 and 550 of the sharks in the water between Mexico and BC, roughly 2 to 3 are spotted in BC each year.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...life-1.5758774


The basking shark is the 2nd largest living fish, the Whale Shark being the largest living fish, both are plankton eaters and no threat to humans.

People in Nova Scotia seem to love their aquarium fish, look at the line up to get into the store.

This bridge took 45 years to build (from 1357 to 1402)

Protestors out in force today.



Presumably part of the downtown Vancouver group.

Something going on downtown Vancouver

Anti-mask people causing issues at BC Ferries.

Vancouver, group blocking a major arterial road. Not sure what they are protesting.

That is pretty cool. I like seeing old sights like that.

When I go to ghost towns, I always try to visualize in my head what things were like in the towns heyday.


Wait til future humans discover our modern today landfills in hundreds or thousands of years from now.

I think my diapers from 1979 may still be in the local landfill where I spent my infant and toddler years. (google tells me disposable diapers in a landfill take a couple hundred years to decompose)
