Well, it could be worse, like those on the east coast staring at another "nor'easter" slated to bring up to a foot of SNOW their way. I say never discount dear old Mother Nature.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly cloudy skies, temps reaching to around 43 degrees, and windy conditions (which negates today's high temperature nicely).
*** First out of the bedroom is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MARCH 20 -
---It's National Ag Day
FARMING...I thought it was a periodic table SILVER thing)
---It's National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
FOREIGN type of HIV/AIDS?)
---It's National Proposal Day
---It's National Ravioli Day
*** Next, and since it IS a Tuesday, let's look at ALL the FWPD calls we never heard about for last week, because the media was busy looking for things to pin on our president...

FIREWORKS CALLS - MAR 12 - MAR 1
*** Next up, here's the skinny on WHEN the Aunt Millie's bakery (near downtown of course) is slated to shut down:
And they're doing this to consolidate and save money (while losing jobs)...because that always works, right?
*** Next, two school systems are trying to recruit teachers. Here's that story:
WHY the school system is doing this, when they've been forcing teachers to LEAVE, because I'm not quite wrapping my brain around this nonsense.
Oh, they're trying NEW ways to recruit...like LYING and saying it's SO great a place to work?
Well, neither of these school systems are FWCS, so they might get some traction there with hirings.
FWCS recruits...basically they look to colleges and student teachers. In other words, those with YEARS of experience both within and without the system really need not apply.
Yeah, that's sure to burst the bubble of those young teachers after they get a few years of "experience" under their belts.
And that's what causes good teachers with decades of experience to leave...a system that doesn't care as much as it should ABOUT the educators, but rather statistical data and school grading. Helluva way to account for oneself.
*** Next up, Jefferson Pointe as been sold. Here's the story:
Apparently, this is being done to counter the 20% vacancy rate at the outdoor mall.
Now, I always look at this as a "glass half empty" premise, because when malls start being sold, something is wrong someplace. I;ve yet to see an instance where a mall gets sold and does MUCH better for years after the transaction.
*** Next, time to stop by our "Kitten Corner"...
|I iz all rammyed -out.|
|What's the temperature OUTSIDE?|
*** Next up, let's take time to check in with "Midnight and Company"...
I think they figure it's better to be safe than sorry in our neighborhood, and who can blame them?
Knowing the flotsam we have living around us, it's a good fit all around form them and us.
*** Last back to the living room...we got some crazy crap going on in the world.
And, it just seems to get crazier every stinking week.
Naturally, those wacky liberals are typically at the top of the totem pole when it comes to crazy.
Then there are the criminal crazies. If it's not child abuse, it's drugs, or homicides, or bombings in cities. We also have our assortment of socially-crazy, like all the illegal immigrants, and protesting students (or adults with childish mentalities)....we all know the type.
You name it.,.we seem to have it, and in greater abundance than any time in our past.
Why we can't just decide to put the lunacy away in the old toy box and attempt to get the hell along eludes me.
It has to be a lot of bad choices being made out there. No other excuse (or reason) for that.
Naturally, with a decline in morality (and bad choice making), did any of us think things would pan out otherwise?
A serious rethinking of the manner in which we all conduct ourselves is in order.
Unless and until we all choose to pursue a saner and productive course, I can't see any end to the idiocy.
I suppose that will make a lot of folks uneasy. I just wish it would make the right people uneasy, instead of the rest of us.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
