Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my dear Mom and Popsicles!  How are you?  We're on a slow heat wave, going from 20° F today to into the 30's by the weekend.  There's not supposed to be much snow, either.  Now watch, the exact opposite will happen with the weather, and the meteorologist will have some glib words to share.  In any other profession, if you were wrong 50% of the time, you'd be fired.  So the talking heads on television can churn out garbage and seem to be invulnerable to reproach.

I don't think anyone cares if the weather broadcast is right or wrong.  What matters today is delivery, the style used to broadcast the prediction.  Accuracy, if any, is a by-product and not the gist of "The Weather" on TV.  It reminds me of something I heard on TV:  "You're talking about justice and we're talking about the law, which are two different things."

Please let me know when you are attending Watercolor Wisconsin and I might come along, too.  A little culture might do me some good.  There's RUSD's art instructors' show in the Racine Arts Gallery going on, too.

Unfortunately, no one from our household attended the Big Chill event in downtown this past weekend.  What I've read and seen, though, says it was a great success.  Good for them.

The big chill is gone from our house since Señor Zanza insulated every nook and cranny, and somehow is coaxing another year out of our ancient furnace.  Thank you so much, Señor.  If I had to rely only upon Junior, we'd be in sad shape indeed. I hope that Junior learns by example as he sees what Señor Zanza does.  Even if Junior doesn't pick up any real world skills, at least he might learn how to be a gentleman.  God knows there's few enough of those.

God also knows I'm tired and want to go to bed.  Thank you all for reading my blog today.  I love visitors.

What the hell is the matter with you?  Ask

Try to stay warm in the brutally cold weather.  Exposed skin gets frostbit easily.  Bundle up until you can't move and then just stay home, anyway.  Don't start a bonfire in your living room.  Do it in the kitchen. instead.

Madame- I went downtown to the Big Chill and got some pictures that I will post later today.

Thank you, Madame. I appreciate your weekly blog. I'm still interested in the Watercolor Wisconsin visit. You know my hours, so my time is limited. Maybe we could look at a Saturday afternoon? I haven't checked their website to see what times they are open.

Thanks for the blog, Mme. Z.
