Here we have a rather unseasonably warm conditions today, which will be followed by a good chance of some snow. Pretty weird.
Even heard some thunder early on, and it's February, but I've gotten used to witnessing a LOT of weird over the last 20 years living in the Midwest.
And certainly not ALL of it had to do with the weather.
Speaking of which, our Hoosierland weather for today will have us with some early morning fog on top of the rain we have coming down. The showers will last until this afternoon, so don't expect any sunny skies like yesterday. What you CAN expect are temps topping out around 60 degrees (that's SIXTY, folks). Mild and wet as all get out.
So. let's get a nice morning beverage poured as we see what else has been going one...
*** First off of the rain-soaked streets is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
FEBRUARY 7 -
---Today is National Fettuccine Alfredo Day
---It's National Periodic Table Day
HEY, where's Vibranium???)
---It's National Send a Card to a Friend Day
---It's Safer Internet Day U.S.
*** Next up, and because today IS Tuesday, let's look at those FWPD calls that were ignored by the media (because they were too busy nit-picking at our president)...

FIREWORKS CALLS 01/23 - 01/29
NONE...can you frigging believe THAT?
*** Next up, about this "so-called" BAN on immigrants.
PAUSE, a temporary CESSATION, got it, you leftards?
2) Second, this "judge" that ruled against it, does NOT know the Constitution. He's another liberal hack (even if he was appointed by G.W.) Here's a link to a better point of view:
3) These protesters are just rent-a-mobs, designed to foment opposition to ANYTHING this president tries to do.
When asked about WHY they protest, the lack of intelligence and understanding of the issue is profound
And there you are...all you really NEED to know in a most succinct manner.
*** Next, Frank Gray had a good column about how people came to the aid of an octogenarian.
Here's the link:
SE side of the city. The mayor obviously has NO knowledge of such things, because he's too busy securing his legacy with the downtown/riverfront projects.
A man in his 80s, and his daughter, both physically challenged, have been largely unable to keep their property free of debris and assorted trash (left there by others).
Now, while the homeowner was cited by the city, the Urban League and some volunteers came to his rescue.
|Typical daily trash tossed.|
There are just TOO FEW people who still give a shit down here, and that's sad. But it's the typical result when a city allows so many rentals, never knows WHO is moving into them, and all but ignores this part of town.
We should NOT have to be 100% complaint-driven with any and all services that our tax money pays for.
|This was in Waynedale back in 2015|
*** Next, let's drop by and visit "Kitten Corner"...
|"We're NOT on the counter NOW."|
What they find so fascinating up there is anyone's guess.
All I see are dishes drying, and an empty sink. Go figure.
|"C.mon, daddy. You KNOW we're cute."|
Never hurts to suck up to your "meal-ticket", I suppose.
*** Last back to the rain barrel...we live in an age of ever-increasing amounts of information.
|Using a straw won't help.|
Now, the trick is to figure out WHAT information we need, isn't it?
Lord knows that there is so much out there we really DON'T need, and the job becomes attempting to separate what we need from what is available. For many, that's too hard a task, so they take in anything.
When people do that, they often wind up with loads of MIS-information, and there lies a lot of our societal problems.
When it's easier to settle for lies, rather than work at finding the truth, we become much too complacent.
And with complacency comes apathy in it's wake.
And when that happens, we ALL begin to become better people.
After all, isn't that what life should be about...becoming better than you used to be?
I'd like to believe so.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
