    COVID-steria to COVID-haustion With Banana Bread Tucked in The Middle

    COVID-steria to COVID-haustion With Banana Bread Tucked in The Middle

    There truly is some hysteria to this COVID-thing, and sometimes it can be difficult to separate oneself especially when, as Mar Sulaika knows, one's parent is in the midst of the unknown.The COVID-haustion refers to Agnes doing double duty as Gramma  and as companion to an Alzheimer's client.  Asleep after the second glass of wine?  Yikes!  that's a first!We separated ourselves from CV this episode with some discussion on the podcast editing process, societal changes that may or may not (or should) grow out of this, comfort food (aka banana bread), and Oosh!  Agnes gives Mar Sulaika an assignment!Agnes opines on how to write like one's self and we crow about Our Generation!

    COVID Adjustments, Shakespeare and Greek Philosophy, Government Responses to COVID

    COVID Adjustments, Shakespeare and Greek Philosophy, Government Responses to COVID

    Haha, I look at that title and think - just another conversation between Agnes and Mar Sulaika.We are all adapting right now to COVID, government rules and responses, and how life has changed.  Two Boomer Women manage to find Shakespeare and Greek philosophy in the midst of all that!The Canadian government has implemented many rules and requests, and also many contingency plans.  We appreciate being at an age where the financial impact is not the same as for a young person or a family.Continued good health!! Mentioned in passing:The African Queen:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043265/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0Three Feet From Gold:  https://www.selfhelpdaily.com/napoleon-hills-three-feet-from-gold/Tulip trees:  https://www.britannica.com/video/158555/discussion-features-tulip-treesA Midsummer Night's Dream:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026714/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

    COVID-19: Some Facts, Some Reality, Lots of Boomer Opinion

    COVID-19: Some Facts, Some Reality, Lots of Boomer Opinion

    Agnes' COVID reality is the presence of her grandsons in her office.  The two-yr-old was great because he got screen time with Baby Bum... you'll hear the soundtrack throughout.  Apologies as it was impossible to edit out.  Apologies also if you find yourself singing "The Wheels On the Bus" for the rest of the day.Conversation included Mar Sulaika's sister - it may sound hard-hearted but they share a lifetime of history... you'll learn more as time goes on.As our conversations are wont to do, COVID convo was an obvious lead-in to "Night of The Iguana" and "Sleepless in Seattle"!Wishing you facts and calm as this "thing" unfolds. Look-up-ables:Baby Bum:  https://www.youtube.com/user/LittleBabyBum/videosNight of The Iguana:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058404/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3Sleepless in Seattle:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108160/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Pigeons and Men - Unrelated Convos, Honestly! - to Netflix and Launching This Podcast

    Pigeons and Men - Unrelated Convos, Honestly! - to Netflix and Launching This Podcast

    Do we need to issue and language alert? In between conversations about pigeon problems / solutions and men (from good-looking to warriors, how's that for range!) we got into a discussion about children and "bad words" so if you're sensitive to 4-letter words, be prepared.Mar Sulaika wrote an interesting article about one of her out-and-about observations (pre-COVID) so Agnes decided to add a page to her website.  If you've ever considered a blog, it might be interesting to you.The discussion around warrior men morphed to Netflix and Barbara Corcoran. Agnes' updates on getting this podcast up and running morphed into Apple and apples.Two editorial corrections:David Suzuki was nude, except for a fig leafBarbara Corcoran was on Shark Tank, not Dragon's Den

    Story-telling and Gilda Radner to Knee Injuries and Professional Women

    Story-telling and Gilda Radner to Knee Injuries and Professional Women

    The transition from our discussion about story-telling morphed quite easily into a chat about the wonderful Gilda Radner.  As happens from time to time, our own aches and pains entered theconversation: Agnes' comments on her knee injury led to an interesting discussion of knee braces and Mar Sulaika's dental comments ended up in a discussion about dental schools and professional women.Please remember that when we discuss anything medical, we speak anecdotally, with no medical training.  If Agnes's knee injury sounds like yours, you still need to refer to your own medical specialists for advice on your specific issue.When the subject of men enters our discussion today, please do not take the comments as derisive.  As you get to know us, you'll realize that we do like men, we do also have some opinions that we voice.  No offense is meant to our friends, the men.References made today:Love Gilda:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5424228/Gilda's Club:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilda's_ClubReBalance MD (Victoria, BC):  https://rebalancemd.com/Incredi-Wear braces:  https://incrediwear.com/Mary Pack Pain Clinic:  http://mpap.vch.ca/
