I just endured Trump’s speech at the FBI academy. He patted himself on the back, went off script to use all his favorite words, to call for the death penalty for this or that, to put Chicago down, to put Obama down. He said thank you so many times but he was never done! At last he’s done. Now I would like to vomit, if I was a vomiter.
2016: Feels like the worst year ever.
2017: Hold my beer.
2018: Hold my b [buffering buffering buffering] ee [buffering] r.

Would you take a check?
During all the teeth-gnashing and accusations against the FCC on net neutrality, it’s generally overlooked that Obama appointed Ajit Pai to the commission (he was elevated to chairman by Trump); Obama appointed Mignon Clyburn, Jessica Rosenworcel, and MIchael O’Rielly; Trump appointed Brendan Carr.
So….the 5-person commission voted 3-2 against net neutrality. Four of the five commissioners were appointed by Obama.
How’d that work out?
Anybody who keeps clinging to the fantasy that the neoliberal Democratic Party operatives work for the common person, is woefully misinformed. The Republicans are just willing to be outright a-holes; while the Democrats are good at pretending they are the white hats.
A study says Washington’s accident rate leaped from 33rd worst all the way to 14th over the same period last year.
Here are the rankings of the nation’s five worst driving states for 2017, from worst to best:
On the other hand, these are the five best driving states for 2017:
It’s road combat here, better pay attention and watch out for rampant idiots.
Comments’ section is more spot on and illuminating than the article:
Can any TeeVee-watching DWFers help me out on this…what can you tell me, if anything, about TV series titled, “Miami Medical,” “NCIS,” and/or “Third Watch?”
A person who claims to have done work on those series and others, approached me yesterday offering pro bono production services in my volunteer work on Advance Care Planning, Advance Directives, and Palliative Care….he says he has the equipment, expertise, etc. to provide a professional quality video production for greater reach with the message.
Google his name?
I did. Appears authentic.
He subsequently sent me links to some productions he did for local non-profits that he believes in.
This is like manna from heaven! I hope it works out satisfactorily.
Third day of aching muscle in my back, right side. Two nights ago could hardly sleep, not even with Excedrin, and I tried an ice pack. Slept ok last night, pain back late this morning and then I remembered: IT WAS THE DAMN SHOVELING! I shoveled the first of the snowfall when Pete was here Wednesday, putting the lights up in my Red Bud. I noticed the pain coming on while we were watching TV. Told him it was because I sat thru 3 episodes of Walking Dead.
Nope, it was the shoveling which I had to do all over again yesterday, including out to the bonfire pit. Like I said, slept ok last night, but today it was back and I remembered Bob’s rice bag. I put it in the microwave for 2 minutes and sat against it and WOW did that work well. To heck with ice bags from now on.
Hey I got a 2% raise from antisocial insecurity woo hoo, negates the $15 rent increase
That SS COLA increase does not reflect today’s economic reality!
I’m so happy I discovered “Drunk History.” That is guaranteed to make me laugh, every episode.
Same for “Impractical Jokers.”
And last night, at long last, “Whose Line is it Anyway” was back.
I might laugh my butt of to any one of those shows. If not that, I chuckle and giggle a lot.
It finally snowed and is still snowing. About 5–6 cm so far. Trip to the Nuevo Vallarta wasn’t bad as snow is new and not at all icy.
Farmer’s Almanac claims it’s going to snow here on Dec 26th.
We will see…
Still lightly snowing but I made it across the street to the grocery store and then back home. No stick walking today.
Your card came today; thank you, Carol.
Boy, they have some real cows wandering the aisles at WallyMart:
