With a major side of windy on and off over the past week or so. Still, we aren’t doing as bad as some of our scattered friends who are being buried under snow and are having issues with power and road safety. We’re just having a problem with the heat. The wind sometimes manages to blow out the pilot light in our furnace. Happened last night, and I thought I got it relit…but it was less than 50 F in here this morning, so off down to the basement again. This time, I made sure it kicked in.
My New Years Resolution was to get everything I have handwritten in various notebooks and binders onto the computer, even if they are only partial stories. I have so far managed to empty four 3-ring binders and two hanging files.
If it is a Federal Government Shut Down, then why is it the Big Wigs are still getting paid? The workers furloughed are the ones in the trenches EVERY DAY, getting things done. They can’t afford to not get paid. Like me, a great many of them live paycheck to paycheck, especially on the lower tiers. I don’t blame the Democrats for this. I blame the hostage-taking crybaby with the bad hair, and any Republicans who continue to coddle him, even when they KNOW he is wrong or breaking laws. The longer this goes on, the more I think Lex Luthor or Cobra Commander would make better Presidents.
May 2019 be a better year for this tired, worn-out old world of ours… but indications are it is just going to get worse before it gets better.
