Thing is, it will be colder tomorrow. Yeah, we're getting close to that thing called WINTER.
Our Hoosierland weather for today will see us with partly cloudy skies (my God, I think I'm seeing a SUNRISE out there), light winds and a high of only around 34 degrees. Better make that light jacket a heavier one.
That wind chill is making it feel like 15 degrees as we start the day.
Now, let's make sure to get something hot when it comes to our morning drink, because we're going to need it, as we see what's been going on elsewhere...
*** First off of the frosty window is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"Of all the characteristics needed for both a happy and morally decent life, none surpasses gratitude. Grateful people are happier, and grateful people are more morally decent."
So, who said that?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute...
*** Next up, it's time for our "What the hell happens today, Bob? feature:
DECEMBER 7 -
---Today is National Cotton Candy Day
FAIR is in town?)
---And, it's National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
*** Next, let's get that daily dose of stupid out of the way, shall we?
---It would appear that we notched homicide number 47 last night for County Allen/Fort Wayne.
Here's the story so far:
Two people, who could be suspects in the shooting, arrived at hospitals suffering from gunshot wounds shortly after the incident, a police spokesman said.
One of them was reportedly in critical condition.
The other was listed in serious condition. victim.
---And, here are two stories about criminals of the black persuasion who practiced that "special kind of stupid"...
Caught after a home invasion last Thursday was Davon “Dee” W. Hawkins, Jr., 22, of the 100 block of Lexington Court. The story (erroneously) says he and another man were armed with "automatic" handguns...WRONG.
Let's try SEMI-auto instead, okay?
Get the facts straight, folks.
FWPD officer stopped him for a non-functioning license plate bulb (OMG...they STILL do that? Amazing!).
Katrell J. Perry, 23, of the 1000 block of Columbia Avenue was arrested after police found him to be in possession of a firearm.
The traffic stop was conducted (also last Thursday, around 0100 hrs) at Reed Street just north of East Creighton, and police discovered Perry was driving with a suspended-infraction learner’s permit and was a convicted felon prohibited from possessing a gun. And they found two loaded guns after they persuaded Perry to get out of his 2001 Pontiac Grand Am.
In his left side shorts pocket was a Raven Arms P25 .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun. In his right side pants pocket, police found a black Glock 22 .40-caliber semi-automatic.
(bet he didn't BUY either one legally)
---And this story just cries "dumbass":
ALREADY want a PAY increase? Who the hell do you think YOU are?
Didn't think to check the PAY GRADE before you decided to run for the position?
How dumb can you get, anyway?
(( As an unlicensed surveyor, Sorg would receive $47,555. The pay level requested is $71,333.))
Just take the $47K and be GRATEFUL you have employment, you jerk.
Some people just do not belong running for ANY office.
*** Next, and quickly moving away from the former FUBAR, let's see what the kittens have been up to.
|You talkin' about me AGAIN?|
Like when Gallifrey has to play with my slippers, or when Violet decides to pick a "perch" that has about as much stability as the Obama Economy in America.
They are learning mush about the whole "what you sow, so shall you reap" aspect to the "Fortress". But you just cannot stay angry at them.
|Well, I like watching you read.|
Maybe this is more of a JOINT learning experience for all of us. I know I'm learning to RE-LEARN a lot.
*** Last back to the wheelhouse...today we remember Pearl Harbor, and the attack the Japanese conducted on our military stationed there 75 years ago today.
Here's the WIKI for the event:
What is still highly debated is whether or not FDR sat on intelligence he allegedly received, in order to allow America to enter the war.
Another good website is THIS one:
The History Channel has had it's share of show devoted to this day, and understandably so.
May this day never cease to become the learning experience we need as a people...and as a nation, bound to the preservation of freedom and liberty.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
