And it looks like we've got some ground to cover, so let's have at it.
The Hoosierland weather today will be sorta-kinda like yesterday...got some rain around the area, but not AS much as the previous day, which means you don't know when a shower will happen, so plan accordingly.
Temps with reach into the lower 60s, an we might see some late day sunshine...
Now, with that behind us for the moment, let us pour a nice soothing cup of our favorite morning beverage and see what ELSE is going on around this wacky planet...
*** First up is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we erect ourselves."
In today's world, such words often fall on deaf ears, and not enough people take this to heart....so WHO said this?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back in the nation's capital...
*** And we cannot forget our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
October 15 -
WHITE CANE SAFETY DAY.
So, if you see a blind person with the cane help look out for them.

(none - frigging amazing!)
*** And speaking of SHOOTINGS, there was a "three-fer" south of downtown at 546 Pierce Avenue (near Fairfield) early this morning.
Two men and a woman was injured by the gunfire and several shell casings were found. It appears as if the men were the shooters, although police ARE looking for another suspect..
Both were taken to hospital, with one in serious condition, the other in fair condition,.
The woman suffered a "through and through" and declined treatment (nice souvenir). She is also believed to know one of the men.
*** We're hearing all sorts of things coming from this Ebola outbreak...and a lot of them are outright LIES.
He also said it "would not spread"...and it HAS.
But this story is really "out there"...
It seems that some erroneously think that the NRA is to blame for the Ebola outbreak...
That's right, you heard me correctly, and here's the story link to prove it:
MSNBC and States United (gun control group) are apparently trying to "upstage" Calypso Louie (Farrakhan) when it comes to blaming the wrong people for something...or anything.
And talk about some seriously FLAWED LOGIC...man, that takes the cake.
See, the NRA was opposed to the new surgeon general's appointment (and this guy was a big obamadonor plus was an advocate to RESTRICT 2nd Amendment rights...in the name of "public health", mind you)
Not hard to see the whole.picture when you know how to piece together the puzzle, right?
*** And now...for something completely different...
NEW feature here...something I like to call your "ONE-MINUTE CARLIN".
And here we go:
(( Why is it the pile of dirty clothes is called "the laundry"?
"I'm about to do the laundry."
Then, when it comes out of the machine, it's STILL called "the laundry"?
"I just did the laundry".
What's the deal here?
Is laundry CLEAN or DIRTY? ))
*** Last back to the comic club...every day we see evidence of people who haven't a clue in life, and couldn't even get one if someone was giving them the hell away.
Then, there are those who are so perceptive with life...see things as they are, or even see things others do not (or will not).
I'd like to believe I'm in that latter group, because I'd sure hate like hell to be clueless in life, especially in THESE times.
I think many of you have thought along similar lines, and that's nothing to be ashamed of, although there WILL be people who would tell you otherwise...
They're the people that have difficulty finding their ass with BOTH hands.
The sad part is that some of these people run our nation.
And this extends beyond our homes into what those in power try to tell us.
We need to learn for ourselves, question that which seems out-of-place, and continue practicing the discernment to know truth from lie and right from wrong.
That is the path we should tread upon as citizens of this nation, and if we're having trouble finding it, we need to check our (moral) compass from time o time.
Stay SAFE out there, America
