In the past few months, at least a dozen of my warts have just died and dropped off. And, I don’t know if I should be delighted or concerned. I guess it all depends on whether my body is rejecting the warts or the warts are rejecting my body.
Our local new station has Olympic spoiler alerts. These alerts allow viewers to turn away from a recap of the Olympics so as to avoid learning the out come of the yet to be televised events. Unfortunately, after the “spoiler alert” ended, the news went on to play the highlights on their sports segment.
I guess either the sports news people didn’t get the word or they had nothing else to televise.
Between exploding shoes and exploding underwear, no articles of clothing are exempt from terrorist plots. So, ultimately, we will be required to remove all clothing and be issued an airline robe to wear while flying.
It is only a matter of time.
As a Telecommunications Engineer, I receive a lot of free trade publications. But, then I started receiving trade publications for Mechanical Engineers. And that was fine. That soon expanded into Chemical Engineering and then into Biological Engineer. Recently, I started receiving publications on Forensics. Well OK.
After a few years, my job title changed to Systems Architect. So, I now receive trade publications on structural steel, metal fabrication, concrete design, HVAC, flooring material, etc. And while these publications are interesting, I simply don’t have time to read all of them.
Our local TV station likes to send news teams to highway accidents. Recently, there was a multi-vehicle accident on the interstate an hour away. So, the TV station sent their news crew for a live report. And, what did they report? Why, they reported themselves sitting in a traffic jam on the interstate. Go figure.
When I was in the produce section of Meijer (regional grocery chain) I noticed that they are now carrying Aloe leaves.
I don’t know if you are suppose to eat them or make burn ointment out of them. Either way, I see them going the way of the Artichokes that the store used to carry.
I put suet out for the birds along with sunflower seeds. But, rather than buy that expensive Gourmet suet, I render my own lard. I buy 4-5 pounds of lard, grind it up with my food grinder and melt it down. Then, I line bread pans with plastic grocery bags and ladle in about an inch of liquid lard into each bread pan. After they cool, I remove the plastic bags from the pans and throw them into the freezer.
With any degree of luck, today s rendering will last until May.
Live hockey was broadcast today preempting the afternoon soaps. But, not to discourage the regular afternoon viewers, NBC announced that the soaps would be delayed one day.
Well there you go!!
This Global warming seems to be very hard on my backyard squirrels. They now have to bound through over 12 inches of snow to find their food. So, I have been throwing out food for them to eat such as stale bread and old fruit.
I also gave them some Brazil nuts. And, as near as I can tell, they can’t open them either.
Since Al Gore, aka Mr. Global Warming, is from the east coast, I get a certain amount of enjoyment whenever the east coast gets hammered. And while I feel sorry for the innocent individuals who have to endure this weather, I shake my head at those who say snow is a thing of the past.
