    The Generation Game reacted to Bedrag Justesen in The Presidential Election, Trump-Biden   
    Kamala Harris has not resigned her Senate seat as of January 15 2021.   ............................................................................................................................ Georgia Secretary of State's office confirms Senate results are not yet certified. May not happen before January 15 deadline. (Today).    Here are Georgia's election certification deadlines

    Walter Jones, a spokesperson for the Georgia secretary of state’s office, shared certification deadline information with ABC News Wednesday for the runoff elections. 

    If Ossoff wins, and the results aren't certified until the deadlines below, then President-elect Joe Biden won't have a majority in the Senate until a few days after his inauguration. 

    If the results are certified and the Democrats are seated before Biden takes office, Democrats won't have a majority until he's inaugurated because they need Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote. 

    The deadlines are as follows.

    Friday, Jan. 8: The deadline to cure rejected absentee ballots, deadline to verify provisional ballots (if voters lacked photo ID), and deadline for receiving military/overseas ballots postmarked by Election Day. 

    Friday, Jan. 15: The deadline for counties to certify election results (though this could happen sooner if everything is ready). 

    Friday, Jan. 22: The deadline for the secretary of state to certify election results (this also could happen sooner if everything is ready). 

    The deadline for a campaign to request a recount if the margin is less than 0.5% is two business days after the secretary certifies the election. If the secretary does this on Jan. 22, then a campaign would have until Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 5 p.m. to put in the request. 

    Georgia code says the secretary delivers the vote totals to the governor who issues a certificate of election to the winners

    Isn't Norway an all female cabinet? I like to watch a Scandinavian government go down.

    I asked my dad some years ago to write it all down, primarily for his grandkids. He's been doing so, slowly, reached about 9,000 words of his and my mother's youth, adolescence, meeting, etc. Fascinating stuff. I would have asked her to do the same before she passed away but she was a bit too scatty to have put it all together, I reckon.
    I almost started a website for older people wanting to write their stories but then 'meh'. Maybe someone's already done it. If not, I hereby bequeath the idea to anyone who wants it.

    The Generation Game reacted to Micky Roberts in JURY SERVICE!!!   
    Was called for jury service many years ago. The first case involved fairly mundane larceny. The second was a little more interesting. Prior to starting the judge apologised to the members of the jury and in particular to the women for the distasteful nature of the proceedings. It was a prosecution under the Obscene Publications Act. Pre internet days the police had raided a back street cinema showing dirty movies.
    It was up to the jury to decide whether these qualified as a breach of the law and as such we were obliged to watch seven movies. The only room suitable for this and large enough to hold all members of the court was a group holding cell. A jury of twelve strangers spent several hours watching a variety of exotic sex acts on film. We then spent an afternoon discussing the level of depravity in each one. 
    Happy days.

    One of my great regrets is not talking more to elderly relatives before they passed. I think that's why things like the World at War were so good, because there is no one left to tell you those anecdotes now.

    How dare you!
    Don't you know it's perfectly normal to meet a musical icon in public and then just become mates with them?
    I first picked up a bass guitar because of John Deacon, queen's bass player:

    Brb, off to ask John if he wants to be my mate and mentor me....

    ....oh....he told me to 'fuck off'.
    Never mind.
    I'll tell the BBC about my gammy leg and orthpedic shoe and get some publicity that way instead.

    The World at War is one of my regular fall backs on Yesterday. Three observations of it
    - sometimes it cheers me up in a kind of 'realise how good you have it' way. Other times the opposite.
    - the older I get, the nearer in history it seems. Especially since my birthdate is now closer to its end than the current date
    - its lessons have been lost; the 80-year generational memory thing.
