PUCO - I predict tabulation problems with mail-in votes

I woke up this am thinking about the mail-in ballots (as we are all want to do) and realized 1) who's the asshole who designed the MIHOP mail-in ballots and 2) possible/probable tabulation problems.

I don't know how the ballots look in the rest of the state, because, instead of Joe & Kamala being at the top of the ballot behind *, they are listed right in the middle of the fold (behind Kanye even), where our PUCO Clerk says ballots generally have scanner problems - reading the ballots or being kicked out due to the fold.

Yeah, MIHOP problems. I feel sorry for the poll workers, having to flatten out those votes without a bone folder in sight.

To Add: If you know of any poll workers working Tuesday, have them call their Scrapbooking friends and ask them if they can borrow any and all bone folders. They are tailor made for creases. I have several I can lend.

Y'all be careful out there - it's Rutting Season

Co-worker of DH was hit by buck out of nowhere last night, driving on a two-lane highway on the outskirts of small town. Came charging out of a cemetery, co-worker never saw him just "plow!" Co-worker is okay but extremely shaken up.

Newbies to the country life, every fall, October to November, Bucks awash of in hormones (think musth in elephants) and want to screw every female and fight every male, which includes vehicles. It seems the bigger the vehicle, the more likely bucks will want to ram it.

Be especially careful at dawn and twilight but after dark, really, anytime. People die somewhere during this time being rammed by bucks.

Now you can tear a building down
But you can't erase a memory
These houses may look all run down
But they have a value you can't see...

This is my neighborhood
This is where I come from
I call this place my home
You call this place a slum

You want to run all the people out
This what you're all about
Treat poor people just like trash
Turn around and make big cash

Now you can tear a building down
But you can't erase a memory
These houses may look all run down
But they have a value you can't see

Last month there was a fire
I saw seven children die
You sent flowers to their family
But your sympathy's a lie
Cause every building that you burn
Is more blood money that you earn
We are forced to relocate
From the pain that you create

Now you can tear a building down
But you can't erase a memory
These houses may look all run down
But they have a value you can't see

We lived here for so many years
Now this house is full of fear
For a profit you will take control
Where will all the older people go?

There used to be when kids could play
Without the scourge of drug's decay
Now our kids are living dead
They crack and blow their lives away

Now you can tear a building down
But you can't erase a memory
These houses may look all run down
But they have a value you can't see

You've got to fight
You've got a right
To fight for your neighborhood!

For context, we have been here before - The Forgotten Plague - American Experience

Why is it that the US has the shortest memory and attention span? We are not unique or special. There is nothing new under the sun.

It wasn't until the late 1880's that medicine finally figured out that how Tuberculosis was spread. Up until then, it was thought to be a family disease.

After germ theory was finally accepted, people were sequestered into sanatoriums and stayed there until they died.

All Seniors and everyone with medical conditions need to fill out a File of Life

Have y'all heard of these? It is vital information for first responders as to what medication you take, your physicians name, allergies, even your pets names so that first responders know that there are pets in the home. You put one at each door, where the first responders can see them. Like my house, we have skinny windows by the first door, and they fit perfectly inside the window.

Here is some info https://www.folife.org/

There may be an organization in your area where you can get the files or if worse comes to worse, amazon has them in bundles of 5

This way, everyone is prepared and not flying blind trying to get info together.
