Our weather has returned to crappy. We're getting colder weather and snow. What a drag. Christmas was so nice; sunny and warm. Oh well, it is winter. We may see the sun again in April.
If you're hung over today, I told you so! "Candy is dandy, But liquor is quicker." Indeed. Ringing in the New Year while utterly smashed is a tradition, right? Passing out before midnight is a promise. Oh well.
Our triumphant Green Bay "Packers get No. 2 seed behind 49ers, first-round bye in NFC playoffs:"
DETROIT – Apparently, the Green Bay Packers can not have all the nice things.
Hours after the Packers clinched a first-round bye and top-two seed in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers ensured that seed would not be higher than two. By virtue of their 26-21 win at the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night, the 49ers (13-3) clinched the NFC’s top overall seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Packers (13-3) will host a second-round game Sunday, Jan. 12 at 5:40 p.m. CST.
Green Bay would have been the NFC’s top seed with a 49ers loss. Instead, they will keep their wild-card bye and home-field advantage for the divisional round in two weeks, but they are not ensured of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the Packers and 49ers both advance to the NFC Championship game, kickoff will be in San Francisco.
A month ago, the Packers lost 37-8 to the 49ers in San Francisco.
Now, the Packers will play the NFC’s highest-remaining seed after the wild-card round.
The highest-seeded team entering the wild-card round is the No. 3 New Orleans Saints (13-3), who will play the No. 6 Minnesota Vikings (10-6). The No. 4 Philadelphia Eagles (9-7 and NFC East champs) will host the No. 5 Seahawks (11-5) next week.

Sandy Weidner is not seeking re-election this coming spring. Oh no, say it ain't so! One of the best representatives of the people, Sandy will be sorely missed. Now Mr. Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason can do whatever he wants with ease. Thank you, Sandy, for your 20 years of service to the people of Racine. We love you and will miss you. Good luck in all of your future endeavors.
Oh my, Racine's politics are dirty. We have a criminal mayor and city attorney. Our judges are corrupt. The Common Council will soon be spineless. Oh my, oh my. Can you believe that Racine was named the 2nd worst city, out of the entire nation, for blacks to live in? Out of the entire nation. Sad, but true. Milwaukee was number 1. Holy cow. We are worse for blacks than any city in the deep South. That's almost unimaginable to me. However, I am "white," so my views may well be skewed. I apologize to our blacks. Oh my, oh my, oh my.
Besides being the worst city in the nation for blacks to live in, Milwaukee is also besieged by reckless drivers. They don't know how to stop it. What I don't get is why things are allowed to deteriorate to this point. If rules of the road had been vigorously enforced in the past, this wouldn't be happening. No one gives a damn until it's too late. I've complained for years about the dwindling driving skills of the public. All calls for enforcement of Wisconsin driving laws went unanswered. Now we have a mess on our hands. Oh my, indeed.
Never let it be said that the French aren't good for anything:
I love you all. May 2020 bring you nothing but the best.
Treat each other with respect, please.
