    Will somebody explain what “temporary loss” means? Did they do a “do-over”? Did people lose $136 B and some other people made $136 B and they gave it back?

    Apparently the British only stayed for about 5 minutes.

    Here is a link if anyone cares.

    The lettering looks like they’re talking about Dcomscrolling, but it’s actually Doomscrolling.

    There’s more doomscrolling today due to Hurricane Ian and the untimely death of Coolio.

    Doomscrolling—for those who want to feel that, no matter how bad off they are, somebody else is fortunately worse off!

    Probably, the British invaded Spain because they thought that one of the Queen’s corgis was missing and had been abducted by a Great Pyrenees dog.

    My new avatar is one of many pet portraits I do! This one is a cute little mutt! My father used to say that the mother was from a good family and the father was a “sporting man”! ;o)

    I really do not understand how the stock market works. Why would something so inconsequential cause such a dip in the market?? OR someone says something quite innocently and suddenly we’re in a recession. What the heck? Who has that kind of power?? I will never understand it.

    I have a friend that I swear suffers from “dcomscrolling,” for all she does is watch tragedy on the news. She’s not interested in any lighthearted news or events.
