Dear Madame Zoltar

Hi, guys!  How are you doing?  I'm writing this on Tuesday, October 24, and the weather is pretty crappy.  At least the storm system appears to have moved over Lake Michigan.  However, it's still very close.  I went out earlier and froze my tush off  whenever I left the car.  The stop at the Neighborhood Walmart Store is always the breeziest.  There's nothing to break the wind out there.  Ha-ha.  I got the pun.

Anyways, it's chilly out there.

That was yesterday.  Today is supposed to be about the same without the rain.   I have the thermostat turned up and a cup of coffee at hand.

Well, the Packers lost.  But is that really any surprise?  At least they have a bye week to lick their wounds.  Someone from the Packers' organization should have contacted Area 51 when Aaron Rodgers broke his collar bone.  Those aliens can heal you within hours.  Aren't there any Packers fans among our ETs?  Hell, Rodgers doesn't even have to know.  Do it while he's sleeping.  Otherwise, kiss our season good-bye.

Here are the Irregular Football League standings:

I'm still in third place and Mr. OrbsCorbs is still dead last.  Is there an award we can give someone for never changing their status?  Mr. OrbsCorbs started out last.  If he holds the position all season, I think he should be recognized for his efforts, or lack thereof.  Of course, the Half-Astrophycisists are still on top.

From The New York Times:

"You see them everywhere: people walking with their eyes glued to their mobile phone screens on busy streets. But walking and texting can be dangerous — and cities in the United States and Europe have begun to do something about it.

"Honolulu has passed a law, which will take effect Wednesday, that allows the police to fine pedestrians up to $35 for viewing their electronic devices while crossing streets in the city and surrounding county. Honolulu is thought to be the first major city to enact such a ban."

Hooray for Honolulu!  These people will walk right into you.  How they manage to avoid extinction by automobile escapes me.  Maybe the drivers are looking at their cell phones, too.  I'm tired of meeting someone on the sidewalk and preparing to say, "Hi," when I see that they're engrossed in their cell phones.  The most selfish generation yet.

One other thing I wanted to mention; FOXCONN IS COMING!  FOXCONN IS COMING!  FOXCONN IS COMING!  Or maybe not...

I love you all and hope you have a great week ahead of you.

Try to keep your cool if you find yourself frustrated by Racine's road construction schedule.  The construction workers are frustrated, too.  Everyone is frustrated except for the owners who are making a tidy profit.  Ain't that the way it always is?
