This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there
(at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
So use “Tips” for “Oooh, look at the interesting ponder thing!”
and “W.O.O.D” for “Did you see what just happened?! What did you think about it?”
What’s Going On?
Still cold. We’ve had the coldest April EVER in a lot of places, and a very slow start to Spring Planting across the Midwest and even frost down in Texas. California has been wet and dreary, though we did get sun the last couple of days (at last).
Little Kim wants to declare victory and get money. Trump will set him straight. Speculation is that their last test was unexpectedly large (perhaps trying for a hydrogen bomb) and accidentally destroyed their testing area, so now they are saying they will voluntarily dismantle it. I’d believe that before thinking the psychopath has become peaceful.
Still in a negative pattern. Inverted SMA stack. Price bouncing off to the downside (but news gets excited on up days) and the indicators still “red on top” and stay out land. “Blame” laid on the last bad news or Trump, whichever is more eye catching.
The Swamp Looking Dry
We had Gohmert light Mueller’s reputation on fire and Comey put out a book to demonstrate he really was anti-Trump and out to get him the whole time and broke laws in the process. Fox and Hannity look to be reporting on it, the rest of the Yellow Stream Media firmly fingers in ears chanting something:
~”Hey Hey HO HO, Hell NO We don’t wanna Know!”…
Macron of France wanted to be Trump’s Best Buddy, until he was talking to other forums. Managed to look both like a petty sycophant and a posturing puppet all in the same week.
The Royal’s popped another one. Cute Kid, but now Harry is something like 5 from the throne. He’s going to marry a very cute commoner Real Soon Now. But, of course, the Big Question is will the Daft Charles manage to live long enough to outlive Mum and become a King For A Day or maybe a whole year; and how much damage could he do in that time? Hopefully fate finds a way for him to be skipped ( Elizabeth! You Go Girl! I know you can make it to 100!)
The weather is at last getting around to something like fishing weather. I’m thinking maybe I’ll run over to the pier and practice some Ocean Fishing again. It’s been a long while.
Don’t know how much different Pacific vs Atlantic ocean fishing might be, but what with our water being about 45 F and Florida closer to 85 F, I’m figuring “Very”…
I’m thinking I might need to make a little fishing book. List what I ought to try to catch on both shores. What baits, what tackle, what methods. Maybe even practice some fish identification.
