Have to admit, that was some nice sleeping weather last night in the Hoosierland.
NO rain, is that it's allowed time to get a new roof on the house, thereby averting any water incursion INSIDE the house.
*** More about that a bit further on, but first, it's time for our Motto of the Week, aka WHO SAID THAT?
"I cannot remember a time when the Golden Rule was not my motto and precept, the torch that guided my footsteps."
Any shopper worth their salt will figure this one out...trust me.
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back in the housewares department...
*** Aerial Castro, the man who held 3 women hostage for ten years, hanged himself in his cell, saving the taxpayers a nice hunk of money.
Here's the story link:
All I can say on this is...GOOD...WHO'S NEXT!
*** Your vehicle is a rolling computer, for lack of a better term, but you readers have heard me say that more than a few times.
USA have been built with an increasing number of electronic devices that control the systems formerly controlled by mechanical means.
And while that might prove more efficient in many ways, like ANY technology, has it's "dark side".
And here's the story link:
Now, technicians have been using computers to "talk" to your car for years, if not decades, and like I say, it's a more efficient way to diagnose problems.
But what could happen if you car's system gets hacked?
Well, since the brakes, steering and engine controls ALL are run BY the vehicle's computer, your brakes could lock up at freeway speeds, the steering wheel could be "yanked" from your hands, or the engine could just shut down for no apparent reason.
This Detroit-based study states that tech-savvy thieves could remotely unlock your doors and drive off with YOUR vehicle.
Don'cha just HATE that empty spot in the parking lot where your car USED to be?
Between 20-70 "computers" are in most every new vehicle out there, and with bluetooth and other Internet accesses available (love those APPS), the chance of your vehicle being hacked become all the more greater.
This is a perfect case of what I have said here for a LONG time - the MORE technology you add to any vehicle, the MORE chances that something can go wrong will abound. And THIS scenario of hacking is just the tip of a larger iceberg, unless steps are taken to shield these vehicles in the future.
OR...we could always go back to the old-school tech on the 60s...yeah, that works for me.
*** Next up, 60% of the people in the USA say we should BUTT OUT of the Syria gig.
And many conservative pundits are saying what I am saying...this is not going to end well.
EXPERTS say this is a bad situation, it makes you stop and think, which is something our "Whiner-in-Chief" doesn't seem to comprehend. To HIM, it's all about looking "bad-ass" and then finding someone else to blame when things go south.
The "best-case" would be to help arm those in that region who view us with LESS disdain than those that hate our guts, and let them all fight among themselves.
You don't learn from history, you will repeat it, kapeesh?
*** I've got an appointment with a urologist today for my "condition", and I hope it all goes well.
The meds I got (hydrocodon) have reduced the pain from a level 7 to level 1, and it hasn't made me into a "stoner".
My appetite's good, and being able to get some needed sleep at night makes a big difference.
We shall see what the doc says later this afternoon.
*** As to the ongoing Hoosierian SAGA OF BEOROOF...
I would have thought I'd get a headache from the nailing going on "upstairs", but not a single "twinge" at all.
This job should be finished by week's end.
*** Lastly today, we should be taking life as we do the people we encounter...one at a time.
When we get too far ahead of ourselves, we lose sight of that short picture - our focus on the immediate becomes blurred, and that can often lead to mistakes in life.
What is in front of us is what is important, and should always be the prize we keep our eyes upon.
To ignore the present benefits neither our past nor our future, and that is why we need to always strive to become better.
With knowledge, and wisdom, the choices become obvious...and easier.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
