"Gov. Scott Walker is proposing legislation that would require
recipients of Medicaid, food stamps and some residents collecting
unemployment to pass a drug test as part of the benefit eligibility
requirements. "The governor announced the change ahead of his 2015-2017 proposed budget and said in a statement that the drug testing will help workers fill jobs across the state, a story on journaltimes.com reads. "Not everyone agrees. “'Rather than getting distracted by presidential posturing, we need to
work together and find real solutions that will create jobs, grow our
economy and put Wisconsin on a path to success,' Senate Minority Leader
Jennifer Shilling, D-LaCrosse, is quoted as saying."
Hello everyone and welcome back! Work, work, work.... that is all I really did all last week. Just a little overtime at the end. I wonder what the weekend will bring. Anyways, here are your questions....
"Poetry has been part of Kimberly Blaeser’s life since she was a young
girl living on the White Earth Reservation in northwestern Minnesota.
Storytelling and other oral entertainment were important elements of her
early family life, in a home with no electricity or running water, said
Blaeser, who now lives in rural Town of Lyons near Burlington.
of her parents loved poetry and she grew up hearing her father recite
poems and having her mother read frequently to her and her older
brother. Such exposure inspired Blaeser and her brother to become good
at making up games and stories, she said. And, as soon as she could
write, she began writing poetry."
"12:37 p.m. There is a heavy police presence at the transit center at
Liberty Street in Racine. There are no official reports released from
the Racine Police Department at this time, this is a very active scene

been shot and there may have been multiple suspects. It is not known the
condition of the victim, or if all suspect is in custody at this time.
Police are also out on the 6th Street bridge More on this as it develops."

Hello, my sweets!How
are you?I’m so sorry about missing my
blog last week, but I’m still feeling a bit ill.Everywhere I go, I see people are sick.The flu has hit us hard this year, and I
think there are various strains going around.Some people get sick for a few days.Others have told me of it lasting three weeks (!).Some people get it more than once.Whatever it is that I have, I couldn’t take
it for three weeks.I can barely
tolerate what has already happened to me.Achoo!
Glorious weather we’ve been having.Compare us to last January.You just never know about the weather until
it’s here.I’m sure we’ll see wintrier conditions
before it’s over, but I’ll take whatever breaks we can get.
The Packers.The Green
Bay Packers.Boo-hoo.What the h-e-double
hockey sticks happened late in the game?This loss is especially difficult to accept because it appeared that the
Packers had it nailed.Instead, their
coffin was nailed shut.I just try not
to think about it.Nonetheless, I love
the Green Bay Packers.There are wins
and losses throughout life, just like in football games.You have to learn how to deal with them
both.In the off-season, I hope our
gladiators heal and thrive, and return better than ever.
The spring elections are already drawing a lot of attention
and campaigning.I’m sure it will worsen
as the elections approach.Try to stay
on the positive side, no matter who you endorse.Politics are filthy.There’ll be much more dirt to come.
Speaking of politics, I’m sure that President Obama’s State
of the Union Address yesterday contained many wonderful things.That said, President Obama is becoming the
most obtrusive and intrusive president ever.I don’t want to live in a world where the government makes my decisions
for me.Surprisingly (to me), I think
most people would like cradle to the grave instructions on life.I’m sorry, but not me, Mr. President,
sir.Please stop interfering in the
lives of “free” citizens.We’re the ones
who still believe in the United States Constitution and personal
responsibility.I guess we’re a dying
Finally my dears, here is a picture of an advertisement for
an “English Tooter.”
So, what? A British guy farts for a fee?
Thank you for reading my blog today.I love the company and I love you.Madame Zoltar has the love jones for her

"Jan 19 (Reuters) - More than half the world's wealth
will be owned by just one percent of the population by next year
as global inequality soars, anti-poverty charity Oxfam said on
"In a report released ahead of this week's annual meeting of
the international elite at Davos in Switzerland, Oxfam said the
top tier had seen their share of wealth increase from 44 percent
in 2009 to 48 percent in 2014. "On current trends, it will exceed 50 percent in 2016. "The charity's executive director, Winnie Byanyima, who is
co-chairing the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, said an
explosion in inequality was holding back the fight against
poverty. "'Do we really want to live in a world where the one percent
own more than the rest of us combined?' she said on Monday."
Finally back from a long trip...clouds in Seattle and Florida kept me from getting good opportunities to see and photograph Comet Lovejoy (I saw it from Florida, but the light pollution kept me from getting great pics). Back in Tucson and got some tonight. Here they are...all with a Canon 60D on an iOptron Skytracker. Various exposure times and focal lengths.
I also was visited by some javelinas tonight. Had my thermal camera with me.
