    Facebook introducing a new look including a dark theme, and of course they can't resist mucking about with the placement of buttons and your newsfeed etc. so you can't find anything.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    People letting their dogs walk around off leash (and not just their little dogs). My property is not fully fenced in so my dogs are never off leash, but some people around here like to walk their dogs off leash (we have leash laws, their dogs are supposed to be on leashes while on walks). One of my dogs, doesn't really like strange dogs, especially if they get close to the house. If some little off leash dog runs onto my property into my bigger dog's waiting jaws, that's not my fault. With everything else you'd think people would be more careful so as to avoid an unnecessary dog bite incident possibly involving the police and paramedics or a trip to the emergency room.

    It's the 8th of April and it's the seventh anniversary of my father passing away.

    Because of the lockdown, the local crematorium is closed to all but immediate family for funerals.
    This means I can't go over to the chapel of remembrance to look at dad's entry in the book of remembrance, sit for a wee while and remember happier times.

    I can look at it online via the local council's website, but that's not quite the same thing as seeing the actual physical object.

    It's the same thing with Mass in our diocese....watching online and doing a spiritual communion isn't quite the same

    Thermostats should be made so that they will not respond to any change made by a finger which does not contain a Y chromosome.

    I think the comment is way out of context. It's related to another thread's joke, I wouldn't take it seriously if I were you.

    It's actually a legitimate issue.

    Your bodies are all screwed up and are more comfortable at higher temperatures than we are. In addition, dress codes generally are far more flexible for females, allowing for clothing that allows more airflow for cooling.

    And, most importantly, you can always put more clothing on to keep warm, while we can only take so much off before we are arrested for indecent exposure.

    https://www.businessnewsdaily.com/10...re-debate.html

    Is office temperature a sexism issue?

    In general, research has shown that women feel colder than men do at the same air temperature. One study from the Eindhoven University of Technology found that men prefer rooms at 72 F, while women prefer 77 F. Body size and fat-to-muscle ratios are largely to blame.

    Quartz's Gwynn Guilford explained, "The discrepancy dates back to the 1960s and '70s, when scientists and regulators set workplace indoor climate standards based on the metabolic rate of a 40-year-old man weighing 70 kilograms (154 pounds)."

    Many professionals do not view office temperature as a sexism issue but recognize the different realities for men and women concerning body temperature and clothing options.

    "Gender norms do play in," said Sarah Anderson, digital content and SEO specialist at boldSOCKS. "Normal women's work attire lends itself to being a little cooler in the summer, making air conditioning necessary for men and a problem for women."

    It is important to regularly check in with your workers and follow the wishes of the majority, with allowances for individual modifications as needed.

    "Our office is set to 73 degrees," said Jared Weitz, CEO and founder of United Capital Source. "We encourage people to bring in sweaters or jackets if needed, and desktop fans are allowed."

    C'mon. I don't like what you say much of the time, but I still want to hear it. I wouldn't want you blocked by some insane rule.

    Yeah, I'm not one of those women. I would probably die from the heat if I set my thermostat to 77F. My home thermostat is set to 68F-70F during the winter and I wear t-shirts indoors. Any higher and it starts to get uncomfortably hot for me. During the summer if the AC isn't set to 65F, this is an issue for me. I hate summer because it's hot lol.

    Well, we had best not get married. You'd freeze.

    Winter, thermostat is set for 60 overnights and 64 daytime. Summers, AC is set for 63.
