"Juliana Hatfield - 'Make It Home'"

Make It Home
( My So Called Life Soundtrack )

Deepening night, think on a time
All was bright
Here in this dark place, I see in your face
All is not right
Make it, make your way home
Better than the last
Break it, break the alone
Take a second chance
Open a window, let in the snow
Cold is all I know
Go to the fire, stir it around
There's a warmer place for you to go
So, make it, make your way home
Better than you have
Break it, break the alone
Leave it in the past
Oh, look and you'll find it
Someone wants to love you
Look and you'll find it
Someone wants to love you
Wake it, wake your dream
One forgotten me
Sleepin' deep inside o' you Heavenly peace

Four for Fridays!

Good morning everyone I hope you are staying nice and warm inside. I was just out taking Drew to work and it is really cold outside.Here are your questions.

1) Are you ready for the temperature to drop down into the teens next week?

2) How are you doing with the snow so far?

3) Are you ready to hibernate for the winter?

4) When you do go out in the winter how many layers of clothes do you end up putting on?

Have a great weekend and stay warm.

"NASA live stream - Earth From Space LIVE Feed | Incredible ISS live stream of Earth from space"

Very soothing.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my elves!  How are you?  What did you think of the snow we had on Monday?  It snowed all day, but never came down too hard.  By Tuesday, most of it was gone.  That was a good practice run for winter driving.  Please drive carefully in the snow and slush.  And the ice soon to come.  I try very hard to avoid road ragers and other goofs who insist upon driving the speed limit (or higher) no matter how bad conditions are.  We've all seen the tragic results of driving too fast in winter conditions.  What is it with these people?  Do they think that they're invulnerable?

I lost control on the ice once while making a turn.  I hit the curb and the car ended up with a front wheel buckled in.  I don't remember what it cost, but it took about a week to repair it.  I was doing well and had good insurance.  Everything was covered, even a rental car to drive until my car was repaired.  I ended up with a Ford Focus.  Puh-leez!  No wonder I hate cars today.  Just wait.  We're on the verge of driverless cars being loosened upon the populace.  I hope I've stopped driving by then.  And don't get me going about roundabouts!  I hate those things.

The Irregular Football League is already in its playoffs:

I'm playing against Mr. OrbsCorbs.  We'll see who advances and who stays behind.

As for the Green Bay Packers,  they won one this Sunday past, taming the Houston Texans.  This coming Sunday, the Packers face the Seattle Seahawks at 3:25 pm in Seattle.  Good luck, our Road Warriors.  Just knock them down, one at a time.  Knock them down.

From The Journal "Saturday free parking OK'd for Downtown, Uptown and West Racine." Some of the merchants say this will be abused by residents of the areas and/or employees.  Another great idea not thoroughly thought through.  The whole parking meter mess should be removed.  It's just another way to tax you for a road you've already paid for.  Given the state of city finances, I don't think we'll see parking meters coming down soon.  Mr. Mayor Lying John Dickert needs every cent he can scrape up.

Also  from The Journal "Family rattled after dog killed during warrant execution"  I know we shouldn't rush to judgement, but if this played out the way the story tells it, they should sue the snot out of the police and the city.  My God.  It reads like a horror story.  Which frickin' judge authorized the warrant?  Racine just keeps crapping its pants.

Well, thank you dears for reading my blog today.  The more, the merrier.  I love my readers and they love me.  If only we could see each other in person.

Thanks again for reading.  Let me know what you think:

Button up, my babies, it's getting cold outside.  Be careful, be careful, be careful.  I love you all and I don't want to see anyone hurt. Take your time.  That's the way I go.

Ball point pens

Submitted by legal stranger:

When NASA started sending astronauts into space they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.

To combat this problem, Congress approved a program and NASA scientists spent a decade and over $165 million developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.  

The Russians used a pencil... 
Your taxes are due again in April.
