AS seasonal (chilly) outside today, so I guess that's as good a trade-off as we're gonna get.
Our Hoosierland weather for today will find us with mostly cloudy skies...we might even get a decent sunrise out of this, and more mild conditions, with a high of around 59 degrees.
Take a jacket anyway, what the hell, right? Got rain by tonight.
Now, let's all get a drink to wet our whistles, as we see what else has been going on, fair enough?

What? Is THIS effin moron back AGAIN?
*** Next up, time to get our daily dose of STUPID out of the way, so let's get right into it.
---Question: What do you get when you allow so many refugees into America and too many are not properly vetted, thanks to a leftist agenda?
Answer - You get stories like THIS:
OSU results in multiple stabbings and injuries to students there.
|Abdul Razak Ali Artan (obviously NOT Irish).|
(let's see the BLM'ers come to protest THIS one)
This event is being treated as a terrorist attack...and with good reason.
Goes to show you don't need a gun to injure people when a car and butcher knife work well enough, and also, never bring a knife to a gunfight.
Glad this piece of refugee trash is dead. Maybe we'll look at such people in a better (and safer for us) manner from here in out.
---And since we still don't yet know the C.O.D. of the woman found wrapped in carpet padding in a SE side alley, we have what could (again) be homicide #45 (or 46 IF the coroner rules in the female's death).
|What? Another One?|
Police believe the incident began behind an apartment building (no doubt another haven for the "government-sponsored") on Holgate when the victim tried to speed away.
Sure looks like a record-breaker to me.
---Also, just when you thought Cable TV couldn't become MORE problematic, this crap comes floating along:
WANE (General Media) are at loggerheads with contractual negotiations, and we (at the "Fortress") could lose WANE on our channel lineup.
Didn't Comcast go through something similar a year or two ago?
Well, no big deal for me, but I DO watch Blue Bloods on Friday night. Wifey will have a fit, because she watches NCIS, Criminal Minds, Survivor, Big Bang Theory, so you get the idea.
Funny thing...we NEVER had such problems when all those AIRWAVES WERE FREE...did we?
Doesn't matter WHAT carrier you have...sooner or later you will be affected, make no mistake.
|Being held hostage is "new"?|
Get used to being screwed...but some Vaseline. Or, you could protest THIS instead.
--- Question: How can you push forward a plan for a new downtown arena when it's not REALLY needed (or wanted by many)?
FORWARD anyway, in spite of any push-back:
|Welcome to the Bob Chase Memorial Arena.|
How's about we try THIS - we name this new arena in honor of the late BOB CHASE???
Let's call it the Bob Chase Memorial Arena - that's SURE to garner enough "sympathy" support to move ahead with it's construction, even if we don't need that arena at all.
Now, this is something I thought about since Bob passed, and it would make sense, because I can put myself in the shoes of such people. To know your adversary, you have to THINK like them (Sun Tzu).
This would get a LOT of people on board, too, with little resistance. I mean who would DENY Bob Chase such an honor (even if it's for the almighty dollar and not in any real sense a way to honor his memory and life).
I would be surprised if this DOES NOT happen.
*** Next up, and changing gears back to a somewhat "normal" configuration, let's take a look at "What the hell has Bob been buying on eBay?" shall we?
DVD set of the first three Star Wars movies (episodes 4-6) with all that wonderful digital enhancement added in. Even has a 4th disc full of behind-the-scenes stuff.
It's the only way to go since I can't watch the BETA of VHS tape versions I already have.
And I only paid $10.25 (free shipping) for that.
DVD of the latest Star Wars movie THE FORCE AWAKENS...like new, and that cost me $7.50 (again, free shipping). If you add them together, that's WAY cheaper than seeing them all in the theater, and I should know...I saw the first three flicks in a proper movie house - 40 foot screens and DTS stereo...now THAT is movie-watching!
I also got a Marvel legends Captain America figure (6 inch) from the Civil War movie.
THE best...and the price proves it - try $50 bucks on the low side). Action figures are costing way too much these days.
The legends figure goes for about $20 in stores (and up, mostly up), but I got mine (loose) for $10.
Yeah, I can live with that.
*** Next, more fun with kittens...you gotta love 'em, in spite of whatever havoc they may cause about the house,
|Bonding with us, AND one another.|
It's still difficult to get any "action" pictures, because the camera does require SOME level of sedentary posturing.
Maybe we'll get some video out there, who knows?
I will say these two provide a certain enjoyment you don't get with an adult cat. With older cats, you get more familiar comfortability with the way they have bonded to you (and you to them) over time.
Violet and Gallifrey are still learning that, and the manner in which they go about this "learning curve" is something I had forgotten over the last 20 years when we last had kittens in our home. Everything is pretty new to them, and the way they are acclimating themselves to all of this is worth the price of admission.
*** Last back to the bird feeder...one thing you can always depend upon when it comes to our pets is NOT getting your feelings hurt.
Wish I could say the same about humankind.
We seem to EXCEL at hurt feelings, especially in today's propaganda-driven, politically-correct world.
DAMN sick and tired of hearing about all the "this and that" bullshit tossed at us.
If we look to antiquity, we learn very early on that hurt feelings led to the death of Abel at the hands of his brother Cain.
Abel was favored over Cain (rightly so, in fact), and obviously, that caused the same thing people suffer from today.
ALL that time, I've had my feelings hurt...A LOT.
As you get older, it becomes more commonplace. Problem is, some people NEVER learn to acknowledge such truth and choose to move PAST it.
Sadly, today's world is hell bent on protecting our "hurt feelings"...actually going so far as to NURTURE them.
Of course, like any disease, if not properly treated, it will get worse.
What I think many people need, is to stop with all the cry-baby, pooped my diaper antics that are best left in infancy. When we grow up, we SHOULD be acting like adults, and not some spoiled-ass kids who become petulant at the drop of a hat...or word...or whatever else is bothering them.
SO damn much more than wasting time on hurt feelings, and life can bring pain that will make that pale in comparison. Time to make the right choice, and for the right reason.
Time that people started living their own life and not exist for the purpose of annoying others, or worse.
Cain found out the hard way...let's hope the rest of humanity isn't as stupid.
Yeah, I can still dream. And I can also hope.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
