And, if you prefer your days on the WINDY side, this might fill your bill.
March winds...sounds right. Kite flying anyone?
Our Hoosierland weather for today will see us with those windy conditions (in excess of 40 MPH+ here), along with something out of the ordinary...lots of sunshine. Temps will top out in the mid-50s, and no rain (or snow) today to speak of.
That's not bad at all.
*** First off of the dining room table is our WHO SAID THAT? quote for the week:
"Some of our important choices have a time line. If we delay a decision, the opportunity is gone forever. Sometimes our doubts keep us from making a choice that involves change. Thus an opportunity may be missed. "
How many times could we have used words like this in our lives?
There's more than a few in mine, that's the gospel. So, WHO said that? The answer will appear at the top of tomorrow's post. Meanwhile, back at the University of Utah...
MARCH 8 -
---It's National Peanut Cluster Day
---It's National Proofreading Day
---It's National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day
*** Next, one of our pet peeves of late has been when Wifey and I go grocery shopping.
The aisles at the Bluffton Rd Kroger store (formerly Scotts) are always blocked with pallets of items awaiting shelf placement.
This should be taken care of overnight, so shoppers don't have to navigate around such things. (or fret when an empty space resides where an item should belong).
The other problem is often at checkout. Usually ONE lane is open, and it can back up like a cheap toilet some days, creating a need for a second or even third lane to open.
Hiring 100+ people, huh? Hopefully, THAT will take care of issues in stores that need help.
The job fair takes place today from 11AM until 6PM. Let's hope this fixes things.
*** Next up, our own "big dig" has taken another step, but not a lick of construction (or destruction) yet. Here's the story:
City Council voted 8-0 to fund this part of the project, expected to cost around $200 MILLION.
Oh, and NO contract for the project has been awarded as of yet.
This whole deal would not even be happening had it NOT been for an EPA "mandate" going back to 2008 (thanks, Obummer) And eminent domain will be used to acquire the property.
---While council was at it, they ALSO voted (5-4) to fund another MILLION BUCKS for the Superior Lofts project (downtown, where else?). The "total" cost of the project is expected to run around $9.8 million. Here's that story:
((Councilman Geoff Paddock, 5th District, said this is a project that would help the city grow and bring more attraction to downtown. Paddock said there has already been great success with the new developments downtown that have used similar methods of funding.)) That's TIF funding, in case you were wondering. It's the "go-to" source these days. Leave it to a democrat to love spending, right?
*** Next up (and still taking stupid to new levels), WTF is with Nancy Pelosi, anyway?
"Trumpcare" proposal (which is looking more like Obamacare-Light)???
Talk about retarded development with this hag...sheesh!
She needs to take the MILLIONS she made as senator (thanks to taxpayers) and LEAVE...now.
She needs to STFD and STFU...now.
*** Next up, enough with the stupid...let's go visit "Kitten Corner" instead...
Yesterday started out like most others...LOTS of running about with the kids chasing one another from one end of the house to the other.
|He tired himself out...as usual.|
Gallifrey was unaffected, and had a normal day (for a cat).
Later in the evening, Violet came around and kept both water and food down.
|She seems back to normal again|
So far this morning...all is well. Let's see that continue, please.
*** Last back to the coat closet...we're fast approaching that dumbass time of year (this weekend, in fact)...when we all turn our clocks AHEAD one hour.
Personally, I don't see any difference in doing this, other than to befuddle those of us who view time itself as something more than most people. Changing our clocks and watches all to "save" daylight, as it were.
I don't save anything here, and neither does anyone else. It's more an inconvenience than anything...always has been. All it seems to do is delay the sunrise, and deny the sunset until 9 PM. That's just not normal. Man has never taken on God and come out "on top".
And our cars don't get better mileage when it's daylight than when it's nighttime...right?
As someone who changed clocks back and forth most all my life, I just can't see the justification to keep doing so.
Perhaps it makes sense to people with nothing better to do in life than change things.
Reason should win out here...
Stay SAFE out there, America.
