(not that it's a bad thing...it IS still winter, right?)
And those snow showers didn't amount to anything yesterday, did they?
Our Hoosierland weather for today finds us with mostly cloudy skies (AGAIN), scattered snow showers, maybe some sun this afternoon, breezy conditions, temps reaching to around 30 degrees, and NO sign of the Apocalypse.
Sounds good to me, especially that LAST one.
And with that, maybe it's time we get a hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa to wake us the hell up and get us going this AM.
*** First out from under the blankets is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JANUARY 27 -
---Today is National Big Wig Day
---It's National Chocolate Cake Day
*** And since we're staring into that abyss commonly known as "The Weekend", let's see what observances take place over the following 48 hours, hmm?
JANUARY 28 -
---Saturday is Data Privacy Day
---It's National Blueberry Pancake Day
---It's National Fun at Work Day
ANYONE who has fun at work, especially on a bloody SATURDAY)
---It's National Kazoo Day
---And, it's National Seed Swap Day
JANUARY 29 -
---Sunday is National Corn Chip Day
It's also National Puzzle Day
MANY things that puzzle me in this world)
And there you have it...observe responsibly, and always make sure to have a "designated observer" along...just in case.
*** Next up, I've been noticing the number of stories in the local paper (Journal-Gazette - the left-leaning one), and it's not hard to figure out that there is an overabundance of stories pertaining to our new president.
|He DOES have decent jazz-hands, though.|
|Sure seems that way...daily.|
Anyone think to CONSOLIDATE the stories into perhaps one or two?
ARE talking about Libtard reporting, aren't we?
*** Next, and along those lines, I read this story and got to thinking (uh,oh):
The Wall)...gotta be real careful with this one, and here's one reason why:
Many sub-assemblies of American vehicles come from Mexico (as well as other countries), and adding a 20% tax to such items will definitely affect the price of a completed vehicle, will they not, unless those assemblies are made HERE in the USA (job-creation, perhaps?)
|That's a LOT of car parts.|
Trade-offs can be a bitch.
*** Next up, here's our daily dose of stupid, as if we would get a day off from this crap...
|Like this jerk below|
Roy Jerome Thomas, 45, of the 6400 block of John Street, is our latest inductee into the League of Extraordinary Dumbassery, for going on a shooting "binge".
Helluva word to use...like he was doing something akin to watching an entire season of Game of Thrones, or something.
Guess it beats using the word "spree"...perhaps.
And by all means, shoot at your estranged wife. Getting kinda old to go gangsta on her ass, aren't you?
He shot at her TWICE on the same day (9 Jan).
The first time was at 0730 hrs out front of her house, and again around 2200 hrs shooting INTO her house.
Naturally, one of the shots struck a neighbor's house (he missed an entire HOUSE and struck another?). Can't seem to hit a bull in the ass with a bass fiddle, can he?
This asshole needs to be taken OFF the streets for a good LONG time, before he actually gets lucky and kills someone.
*** Next, more of the whackadoo "scientists" who brought you global warming and then climate change are going after something else now...female stereotypes.
This "study" suggests that as early as age 6 or 7, "...girls can be led to believe men are inherently smarter and more talented than women, making girls less motivated to pursue novel activities or ambitious careers".
DOES these dumb-ass studies, and at that age, ANY child (male OR female) can be led to believe damn near ANYTHING for Christ's sake!
(that's why we got the frigging EASTER BUNNY, you morons)
THIS is the kind of bullshit tripe that really pisses me the hell off. Screwing with children as a precursor to a more formal "indoctrination" to produce a more pliable society as they mature...
Funny thing, when we were that age, girls were actually SMARTER than the boys, and continued that (proven) trend until well into high school Them's the FACTS, and from a BIOLOGICAL standpoint. Girls' brains mature at a faster rate...again, FACTS.
All this study does for me, is reinforce the notion that some people want to emasculate males in this country, and this is just another method of doing it...diverting out attention with more PCBS.
Try pushing that bullshit "social justice" on THINKING people...major fail.
|ALL those books, and you didn't LEARN ANYTHING?|
Where did you BUY that effin degree, cupcake, because I don't know of ANY such "laws" keeping women submissive in such an erroneous manner.
*** Next, and moving away from the realm of stupid, there's THIS story which does focus on what's important:
Now, while this isn't exactly like the Philly Police and Fire Breakfast (which I was fortunate enough to attend once), it does speak highly as to how much law-enforcement is valued, and it never hurts to have the clergy on your side while on the "job".
One pastor said that both his job and that of law-enforcement "are the loneliest jobs in the world".
It can also be one of the most rewarding, most terrifying, most under-appreciated, and once in a while, the MOST appreciated.
Kudos to the clergy for recognizing this, and for the LEOs out there for their dedication.
*** Next up, let's go see what's happening at "Kitten Corner"...
Birds to see, toys to play with, meals to eat, people to rub against, and all of it crammed into each day.
|The original "twosome"|
I'd like to believe we're doing okay with Violet and Gallifrey as well.
Even with their antics, they do help chase the "lonelies" away.
*** Last off of the pillows...I cannot imagine a time when our family did not have a pet.
And this was just back when I lived in Philly.
Now, unless you have the pet from hell, a dog or cat can be a soothing influence.
Perhaps that is why we often assign "family member" status to our pets.
Just something to think about the next time your dog or cat curls up next to you.
Have yourselves a fantastic weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
