And, it will be a rather unseasonable one as far as the forecast goes.
Break out the short sleeves and expect spring flowers to poke out (before they get frozen in a week or so).
Climate change? Yeah, the damn climate is changing ALL the damn time over the centuries.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us a warming trend for several days (starting today) with temps reaching all the way up to 56 degrees, clearing skies and a mild breeze.
(Ahh, I can see the crime rate in the city rising already, and that comes with being a bit more pragmatic than cynical.)
"Friday Fortitude" poured and parked close by, as we take a look at what else might be going on, eh?
*** First out of the compost pile is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
FEBRUARY 17 -
---Today is National Cabbage Day
---It's National Random Acts of Kindness Day
---And, it's National Caregiver's Day
*** And, because this IS the end of the week, let's see what the following 48 hours has to bring us:
FEBRUARY 18 -
---Saturday is National Battery Day
---It's National Crab Stuffed Flounder Day
THAT sounds damn tasty)
---And, it's National Drink Wine Day
Momma Fargo will be observing THIS one...heh)
FEBRUARY 19 -
---Sunday is National Chocolate Mint Day
---And, it's National Lash Day
And there you have it. Remember to observe responsibly, and always have a designated driver.
*** Next up, let's take a look at all the STUPID that's been going on.
NOT because the teen involved in the alert was killed. Instead, the teen killed her MOTHER.
How's that for ruining one's life at an early age?
And, it took place in Gary, Indiana to boot...how predictable.
Chastinea Reeves, once at the center of the amber alert is NOW at the center of the murder of her mother.
Prosecutors will try to waive her to ADULT court.
Cute kid, but stupid makes no exceptions for being cute, does it?
- The next story si about an armed robbery that no one seems to know much about.
This took place at the Family Dollar in the 5300 block of Decatur Rd around 1900 hrs last evening.
No suspect information, no injuries and no information if anything was stolen.
Then why report it?
That sure is stupid.
But it is indicative of the typical behavior around our part of the ghettohood.
-And this story proves that last point quite well:
Davon M. Burden, 28, of the 5000 block of Salem Lane (east of S.Anthony) is typical of the predatory nature of the criminals we have in this city.
No regard for life, and certainly does NOT believe that BLACK lives matter...not one friggin' bit.
Damn shame he's going to be a "burden" on the judicial system for a long time.
Maybe the death penalty?
(death by old age, no doubt).
- This story had stupid written all over it from the start.
Funny thing, the News-Sentinel kinda predicted this back in March 2016:
|A second rendering|
|The latest rendering - another "Costaplenty" venue.|
Some of us tend to NOT forget stuff, and that makes the leftards nervous.
*** Next, and getting back to some semblance of normalcy, the work on our street that took place back on Wednesday was halted for some odd reason yesterday.
|No one around doing anything.|
Well, there was ONE guy, and he chose to park a tracked piece of gear ON our damn sidewalk, gouging up the curb-strip nicely along the way.
|What the hell does THAT thing do?|
|Whiskey - Tango- Foxtrot - !!!|
(moral: never piss off an older man who takes pride and care of what he has in life)
*** Next up on our sojourn, and whistle-stop over at "Kitten Corner"...
|Gallifrey loves his sister, Violet.|
Actually had Gallifrey sleep with my last night for a bit - curled up between my legs.
That brought back memories of Rassie and Penny.
Violet was not to be denied, either. She stopped by to rub against me before I settle in for whatever sleep I would get.
|And the napping continues...|
(remember, he's the CUTE one, and she's the ADORABLE one)
*** Last back to the fire-pit...I heard the presser that president Trump had yesterday, and it was pretty damn good.
|Your fake news is the problem.|
WHY hasn't this happened sooner?
Well, the past 8 years had a slobbering love-fest between Obummer and "his" media, and woe to anyone that even dared to say anything contrary to the lies that were thrust upon the American people. Not to mention the scandals that went unreported.
Bill O'Reilly nailed it too in his latest column. Here's the link:
I suppose it's easier to spot such propagandist bullshit when you pursue more truth than lies.
MORE politicians growing a backbone, and some brass balls to take on the lame-stream media and expose them for the fake-news purveyors that they have become.
As to those who shy away from such falsehoods, it sends a wake-up call to them to not even try to peddle such pablum for the brains of the low-information crowd.
So, everyone makes out, especially WE, THE PEOPLE.
SHOULD be paying attention to...you never know. Better to be educated and aware, than dumber than a bag of rocks and being led around by the damn nose, right?
This could be the impetus needed to get more of our people in touch with the truth they all need to hear. Let's hope so, anyway.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
