Rumor has it we might see some soon enough, but you'll have to look fast, because it won't last long with more seasonal temps out there.
Today's Hoosierland weather will have us seeing some chilly temps to start of with, and then a warm up into the upper 40s once again.
Increasing cloudiness throughout the day will portend some inclement conditions later into tonight.
So, let's put that on the back burner for the time being and get ourselves a nice hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa, as we take a look at some other things going on in places elsewhere.
*** First off the griddle is the answer to yesterday's WHO SAID THAT? quote:
"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company."
This is attributed to one of our buddies here, the Father of our nation - GEORGE WASHINGTON (22 Feb 1732 - 11 Feb 1797 )
Here is another good website that is all about Mount Vernon (and George):
Kinda like a "tour" of his home, virtually-speaking.
You will also find links to the Washington Library there, as well as various collection and a digital encyclopedia.
You can even plan a trip there if you so desire.
*** Next up is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
March 19 -
---Today has only one item...it's POULTRY DAY.
|What the cluck???|
We may never know.
*** Next up, this whole stupid-ass Starbucks "race together" thing...whatta a crock of cappuccino.
Here's one of (too) many articles on this:
|Make your own coffee - save $8!|
There is a huge double-standard when it comes to many racial issues today, and that serves to keep people APART.
Then, there are the race-baiters, whose only goal is to line their pockets with money WHILE fostering racism.
And, there is this whole encouragement to talk about race relations...I thought we WERE ALREADY DOING THAT...and not getting far in the process.
The low-information crowd must be loving this.
Kevin Leininger, of the News-Sentinel, even has a column about this, and it's worth a read. here's that link:
Dennis Miller (on O'Reilly last night) said that "you can't order a BLACK coffee anymore...it's now called UNCREAMED"...lol.
|Got that right!|
Miller's right...it's ludicrous to take well-needed honest debate and diminish it because of a "brand name"
*** Next up, FWPD need out help (again?) to find a person responsible for "purchasing" over $9K in BOOZE at various stores around the city with STOLEN credit cards and FAKE IDs from two states.
|One of several locations (near you)|
Sure looks to be one happy-ass individual...guess I would be too, if I had someone else's credit cards and NO ethics to speak of.
THAT will sure help those "after hours" clubs stay open on the SE side
|Not bad vid-caps. We SEE you, asshole.|
Let's face it, no one seems to (want to) bother with this part of town that much, so it would be a GOOD place to hang out.
*** Next, looks like we finally have some traffic cams at some intersections around the city.
Here's the story link:
|We see you, too.|
It makes sense to have cameras there, because of the number of accidents at those intersections.
But, the city states it's NOT for enforcement, but for EMERGENCIES (like ACCIDENTS?).
They do have software that can change lights so that emergency vehicles can have high priority through parts of the city.
Hell, they even have something WE can buy that can screw with the lights and change them to OUR advantage..
I mentioned such tech years ago.
(See my archive post from 17 August 2012)
If it saves some lives...fine.
If it catches some bad people...ALSO fine.
*** Our very own councilman, Glynn Hines will be giving his propaganda speech, otherwise known as the State of the 6th District this Saturday...
|Not a dream - a NIGHTMARE.|
And we'll hear the same old tired BS from someone that hasn't been able to see the forest for the trees since he took the councilman seat way too long ago.
He only represents HIS people...not everyone. Typical.
*** Last back to the kitchen...`-the world today is a lot more problematic than in times past...at least it seems that way.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Things that ARE a lot closer to home, like right outside our doors, are also superseding our lives inside our homes.
This is a world where you have to be so much more "on-guard" against the evils of the world, mainly because we've managed to allow NEW evils to be added to all the old ones. The one the first comes to mind is this identity-theft.
Outright cyber-attacks are another - ones that seek to do damage to our infrastructure, our military, and our most closely-kept secrets.
But the typical things like robberies are something that has become a lot more violent, too.
And the best way to commit an armed robbery is to steal a gun from a home that has one.
It's like a domino-effect...one evil begets another...and so on.
|"whoa, whoa, whoa, whoooaaaaa".|
All too often, this goes unchecked, uncited, and unnoticed by the apathetic among us.
And this starts the cycle of another "broken window", to which we ALL know what that means.
The one thing each of us can do is not permit this to occur...at any time.
We have to be the ones that still give a rat's ass as to how people SHOULD behave, and not how they do behave.
All this is not OUR way of doing things...just the RIGHT way of doing them.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
