When one door closes, another is being locked too so run fast! ;-)
Well, 2019 has been a very interesting year. I’m glad it is drawing to a close, though. Maybe 2020 will be less of an “Inmates Running The Asylum” and the Democrats will be voted out of power in the House. Or learn that the average person in America is just a middle of the road guy or gal wanting to live an ordinary life without them screwing things up too badly or being in our grill all the time.
“That government that is heard from least is liked most”, IMHO.
So in the next few weeks to a month, we ought to hear something about the actual state of the Democratic Pissing Match and Fraud Show. Either from them actually doing something that matters (like forward the Articles) or from Perp Walks.
Brexit is supposed to be semi-Done end of January 2020, but then with a one year “negotiation” of some ill defined “agreement”. At this point a “We’ll See” is about all I can muster. Personally, I’d like to see Trump and Boris announce a Free Trade Agreement to come into force January End and then see what happens, but I know it’s not on the cards.
Christmas is behind us, but it was fairly nice to me. A bunch of Amazon Gift Cards (thus the postings about new stoves ;-) Seems when you buy a new stove every year or two, after about 40 years of it you accumulate a lot of stoves ;-) In fairness, most of them are under $15 and a lot are under $10. At least one stove is just a bent piece of steel on which a fuel tablet sits…
Next up is the New Years Party. I’d guess this is starting in about 10 or 12 hours in the UK? It’s 2:50 AM GMT as I type this, so a bit past noon for starting time?
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:
For just general FYI notices, use to “tips” pages. All the old ones remain for historical reference:
What’s Going On?
Snow Season & Cold
There’s a blizzard of sorts hitting the middle of the USA. Alaska has hit a record 60 BELOW F. There’s snow and cold events all over the world, too many to list really.
Yet the Loons are still calling it the hottest year ever. Sigh.
There seems to be no known cure for willful insanity.
Personally, I’m not going to worry about it for at least 3 days. Today is prep. Tomorrow is sozzle. Then something about the next day… but it’s kind of fuzzy… ;-)
