Here We Are Again

It's no big deal anymore but this is new years day. The years keep coming and going and nothing we do can change that. There's millions of people out in this world that just feel blessed to finish another year and start another one. After a certain age I guess that becomes more important than some ball dropping in New York and people screaming at each other. I like to have a beer or even 2 but don't get carried away. there's no sense seeing a new year come in if you feel like crap the next day. The old I must have had fun because I hurt all over. I just don't feel that need anymore so I don't. It gets easier every year to not party like there's no tomorrow because one day there won't be.

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid

The local news tonight was talking about a city worker removing snow. In the middle of cleaning a parking lot he decided to scoop a path out to his ice house. I would that you wouldn'tneed to be a rocket scientist to know the ice won't hold a 18 ton machine so it went into the river. It cost $9,000 just to get it out and that doesn't include repairs. We have a guy here that everyone thinks dumps his pickup in the ice just for attention. This happens every year except this year. I don't know what happened this year he's in his 80's and very determined when he makes his mind up to do something. So I just say STUPID,STUPID,STUPID.

Yesterday

What a beautiful day it was yesterday with temps near 40 degrees. About 1/4 of the snow on the ground melted and the roads were good to travel. Today the temps have dropped below freezing and turned everything to hard snow and ice. The roads depending where you are have ice on the surface and hard to get arround again. The one guy that plowed snow like he enjoyed it quit the city 2 years ago and things have gotten worse. They hired 2 guys and they plow snow like they hate it. The streets aren't cleaned out wide like curb to curb. There's drifts at all the corners you have to drive through and hope you don't get stuck. The south end of town where I live is the worse part but the whole town isn't that great. I think if they can't handle it then hire an outside company to come in and do it. This has really been a funny December weather wise. I guess it's time to go out and check the roads and get some groceries.

Christmas Day

Yesterday I attended a church service that wasjust wonderful. They had a Christmas program that involved the children singing. The best of the best was 7 little girls singing The 12 Days Of Christmas. As they sang each item in the song they pulled a prop out of a big sack. Like a can of pears for the pear tree. By the time they got to the 12th day they were trying their best to keep up with the music and everyone was laughing and having a wonderful time. They usually have a candle light service butthis year tried something different. It was just grand and wen everyone got ready to leave Jesus was in their hearts and smiles were on their faces. What a Glorious time we all had. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

It Would Be Nice.

In todays world people think if your mommy or daddy are stars then you should be too. There are a lot of young people running around earning millions of dollars and their biggest claim is famous parents. They don't really have any talent but the news media hypes them up until the public start thinking they must be right. I'm not saying that there isn't any talent out there I'm saying some isn't worth looking at or listening to. Loud bands and backup singers don't make talent they just make noise. In fact some of the backup singers are the real talent and not the star. I personally enjoy reading about kids of stars doing something creative that's not conected to show business. Life goes on and the media still make the stars and the people are fooled again.

Where's The Work?

Everyone is laying off workers because of the economy being bad. People who have spent most of their working lives for these major companies are getting cut back. I'm not in the work force anymore but social security isn't a living wage either. If you don't have a retirement plan or company pension plan you won't make it without help from friends or family. My wife and I started saving for our retirement way to late in life and when she got sick there went the savings. The government is bailing out some of the big companies but a lot of these businesses are some of the best paying employers in the world. The CEO's of these are some of the highest paid employees in the world. If I made 5 million dollars a year oreven more I think I would work one year and quit and live easy. I can't even grasp that kind of money for a years work. Being one of the poor people less than $20,000 would pay every bill I owe. $30,000 would pay them and but me a new car that would last the rest of my life. I'm happy but it would be nice to have a few extra dollars that nobody has their hand out for. Merry Christmas everybody, it's not what you have, it's who you are and we are Gods Children.

You can't be to bad when you get winded walking across the room.It takes a little extra time to get things done but I still get them done. The big pain lately is blowing snow but if it were spring I'd have to mow grass. There's always something to keep you from your nap time. Santa Clause will soon be here and we can all relax again until next year.

Salt And Ice Melt

From the way they are talking we mayneed a bunch of de-icer along with the snow blower and shovels. The cats that come to visit looking for a handout are getting fewer and fewer. I have a neighbor that traps them if he can and kills them. We had a yard manager a couple years ago that trapped them and then dumped them out in the country. I just can't understand why people can do such a cruel thing to poor cats. These same people let their dogs relieve themselves in your lawn and don't pick it up. That's really nice people if you ask me," NOT ".

What's New

The only thing around here is snow and more snow. We just cleaned up the last snowfall and now they say 2 to 10 more inches tonight. It hasn't started yet but it supposed to in the next hour or so and keep on until noon tomorrow. I'm so glad I got a little 5 horse snow blower about 20 years ago and it still does the job. After blowing out my driveway me legs give me a fit for a day or two. This is one of the first times we've has another storm back to back just a day apart. Who knows the extra strain on the legs might be good for them.

Crazy Neighbors

Maybe you won't think they're crazy but I'm really wondering about it.The other day when it was below zero all day with the wind blowing making it 32 below wind chill my neighbor was acting crazy. He was out on the street in front of my house riding a bicycle on shear ice. Sliding all over and trying to stay upright. He just had a sweatshirt on and no coat. They have 2 sons 14 and 15 with a baby coming in a month or two. The boys run around in Tshirts and sweatshirts in this cold. I don't know what you would do but I have so many clothes on I work at just moving. When I was young I could stand the cold a whole lot better that I can today. I think if I ever scored some big bucks I'd move to a warm climate. I'll probably hit the lottery the day after I die so that won't do me any good. I guess I'll have to just make do with what I have for now.

A Day In Paradise

I think a day in paradise would be getting up and turning on the radio or TV and not have anything political on it. The politicians have to share their ideas with everyone. The subjects can be anything regardless how stupid they are. If it's now politics it"s celebreties and the dumb things they do. So to be totally honest I'd have to add them in with politicians for the day in paradise effect. I guess I'm getting old and senile or something because I just see so much stupidity out there being called intertainment. I guess I just think at some point they should say enough is enough and let us watch what we want.

White Christmas Coming

The first blizzard of the year is sweeping down from South Dakota heading this way. It's already 3 below zero and they say it will stop at 8 below. Wind is 30 MPH and windchill is -31 below. I stayed inside today since cold air affects my breathing. I can't believe this cold is here so early this year. We usually don't get below zero weather until January not December. I for one am so happy we didn't get the freezing rain we got last year. The cold and snow can be dealt with but that ice is what I hate most. I guess we may as well get used to the idea of cold weather because it's going to be around for a few weeks and won't really get better for a few months.

Snowmobiles Galore

It's to bad there isn't a law that says just because you have the money doesn't mean you can buy a snowmobile. Some of those people that have snowmobiles have absolutely no brains. I sometimes wonder if they think the faster they go the less chance of surviving a crash. I had one many years ago and loved riding over the snow drifts or through them whatever. My brother in law had one but his was bigger and faster than mine and he thought that was so great because I couldn't catch him. What a showoff he was and he laughed and rubbed it in all the time. One day we were running a field and he was showing off when his ski came off and burried it in the snow. It through him 20 feet into a huge drift. I had my slower sled but it looked fast when I towed him back to the farm. we got it loaded up on the trailor and he went home after thanking me for pulling im in.

Making A Living

I have looked into several projects to bring in a little extra income. They always say free to get started but when you get further into the deal theyneed money or you can't have the secret to success. Makes me think the business is getting everyone to send you money for the plans but the money maker is the one you send the money to. When I get to the part where they say now if will send us, That's where I delete it because I don't have anything to send. A couple of my friends are coming over to teach me more things to do with the old computer. One could be a money maker of sorts and the other is something I'll have to be able to do to use the other one. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Government Buyouts

Why is it all these major corporations need billions of dollars to survive? Ever wondered whre we would be if unions didn't demand high wages or they would strike until they got it. While we're at it how about benefits for workers and their families. Ever wondered why the senior citizens living on Social Security get a 1% to 3% cost of living increase and the politicians vote themselves 10% to 12% does that sound fair? This year I understand we old people will get 5.8% and I haven't heard what congress will get but you can be sure it will be at least as much as we get in a whole year. We haven't gotten our raise yet so they could get wild and cancel it. The government makes sure we don't get it all anyway. Medicare goes up and insurance gets some and we wind up with enough to buy a 1/2 gallon of milk and a loaf of bread if we're lucky. My idea is why doesn't the government buy us out. I could be debt free and able to live on Social Security if they would give me $20,000 and but me out. There are a lot of us out there that didn't have a pension plan or 401K to help your living be better. I really don't think the CEO'S of the major corporations really need 20 million dollars a year to live. But I'll tell you what, there's a lot of little guys that could be debt free and worry free with just thousands and not millions. Think about it politicians before you try to cut us more.

Movie Night

The weatherman just snow off and on all night with some wind so it would be a good movie night. My good friend gave me a six month subscription to Netflix so I have a lot of movies to watch. You watch one and mail it back and get another one in three days. They really get them to you fast and shipping is all free. My birthday was November 10th and since then I've watched 14 movies. You can pick out which ones you want from a huge selection. I have over 100 DVD's in my personal colection.

The Question

The question is what is white and cold. The answer is everything on the other side of my front door. It sure makes me want to stay inside all day and not even go out. I can take the heat a lot better than the cold and now it's cold. I did go to the grocery store today but was only gone an hour and then back inside. The thing I don't like most about cold is the heat bills go berserk and are hard to pay. In the summer you can open windows and use your fans without turning on your AC and that helps. So if you're like me then you should stay in where it's warm and not worry about freezing.
