And it's feeling a bit MORE like November, what with a nice cool-down for our area.
Our Hooiserland weather will see us with temps climbing (?) into he mid 40s...and that's about it, folks.
Skies will become less cloudy, but not AS sunny as we'd like to see.
And no rain today, but there is rain in the forecast for tomorrow (again).
The city had said that the SOUTH part of town was supposed to get the first (of two) leaf pickups this week...
We're STILL waiting...(as usual).
Got a feeling it's gonna be a rush job and sloppy as hell.
Sure hope not.
Meanwhile, as the day unfolds, let's go get our beverage of choice and see what is going on elsewhere...
*** First of of the stack today is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" salute to all these crazy days.
Novemver 7 -
Today has only ONE thing of note, and that's BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS DAY.
(who makes this stuff up?)
WITHOUT almonds day out there somewhere, too?
What about DARK chocolate or MILK chocolate?
What about PECANS...or PEANUTS?
Let's not leave anyone out, right?
Here's a case for more diversity ...with chocolate, hmm?
-- And while we're at it,.let's add in Saturday and Sunday...just so we can get a jump on other days we need to know about.
November 8 -
Saturday will be COOK SOMETHING BOLD DAY, and that does NOT include any family pets (although that WOULD be rather bold)
|That doesn't mean "cook the BOOKS" either.|
Tomorrow is also (you're gonna love this one)...DUNCE DAY.
ALL the dunces we encounter on the roads, in stores, and especially...in GOVERNMENT...!
Have fun with that one.
Novenber 9 -
Sunday finds us with (oh, Good Lord...) CHAOS NEVER DIES DAY..
I admit there are times down here where I can attest to the truth of THAT statement.
|They have a MUG for this?|
Here's an idea - Maybe we should make some CHAOS of our own and go out and beat up a few of the DUNCES that cause chaos in the first place?
Kinda like taking care of TWO birds with ONE stone, as it were.
Sounds like a plan to me.
*** There was an armed robbery yesterday and here's the lowdown:
SOUTHWEST side of town).
Employees described the robber, armed with a black handgun, as a light-skinned black male, possibly in his early 20s.
|Working his "way through college"? Hot hardly.|
Something tells me this perps didn't ATTEND any "university", but he might be attending another form of "school" on the near future.
(and I hope he likes men as much as they will like him)
*** Next up, one of THOSE stories that makes you want to go...
And here's the link to prove it:
Okay, so now we have something ELSE to blame for ids NOT learning...DARKNESS.
Like over-crowded classrooms, disruptive students, sloth, poor eating habits, drug and alcohol abuse, provocative clothing and a desire to be someplace else wasn't ENOUGH?
Please, spare me the pain of dealing with this latest manner to divert attention from the real problem.
What about all the people who attend NIGHT SCHOOL..and wind up being able to EXCEL at their chosen field?
Seems they much LIKE the darkness...conducive to making oneself BETTER, perhaps?
But, there are some that want Indiana to "embrace" the CENTRAL TIME ZONE...when we used to be perfectly fine with the EASTERN ZONE and never had to deal with changing the clocks around twice a year.
And students (in Indiana) had higher passing and graduation rates...so my question is WHY?
WHY change thing further...or better yet, WHY not change things BACK to the way they WERE?
(like lose Daylight Saving Time forever)
Just another thing that costs MONEY to study for no good reason, and something to get our minds looking at something OTHER than what we SHOULD be watching. Just hold the kids AND the parents accountable - problem solved.
*** Here's a story that has GOT to shake the resolve of even the most STAUNCH of "global-warming" proponents...
|Ahh, simmer in Alaska...(brrrr anyway)|
How's THIS for global warming?
|Stop already with the warming thing...!|
Now, if we want to talk climate change...that's doable, because the CLIMATE does CHANGE...every damn day, in fact.
But, let's not toss reason to the four winds and go bat-sh$t crazy over the oceans boiling, for they are not...nor are the glaciers melting away and the polar bear population dwindling...quite the reverse.
So let's just let this planet and it's OWNER, Mother Nature do her thing, and butt the hell out.
*** Last back to the barn...you have to pick your battles whenever you can, and by that, I mean the powers that face us every day.
Lord knows there are enough things that we can fight against in today's world, but we have to pull back and regroup more on the "homefront", and that means taking care of business a lot closer.
Such "little" things like not living beyond our means, being frugal, wanting to save a few bucks here and thee are the things we can find on our own "battlefields'" every single day.
We might slip ip once in a while, but it's all part of a learning experience...and a part of life.
And life just happens to be the ONE place we spend the MOST TIME...isn't it?
So have yourselves a great weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
