Just how bad is it?  According to my local Chicago News, it dire.   Local news is just that.  What about the rest of the nation ? Read more…

Well, I watched the Stud game.  Had a heck of a time following it.   Robert Mizrachi took the bracelet and a quarter mil.  Watched until 11PM and then finished it this morning.  The writing was on the wall when I quit and there was no comeback.  They were hyping their free play site.  PlayWSOP is what I’ll mention.

The title is an interesting term.   My Uncle Mac understood it differently.  He was an interesting man — my great-uncle really and married to my grandmother’s sister.  Sweet ladies both.  Uncle Mac installed coal slips out west back in the days when it was still the wild west.  When I knew him he was managing a tool and die shop.  In between, he’d been a professional trap shooter for the Hercules powder company.  He said,  “Perfection is attained only by hard studies and constant practice.”  I guess that works for tool and die making, reading blue prints, and busting clay pigeons.  Read more…

Temporary situation

February 13th, 20161 comment

I am in the process of moving to another blog provider. (Host)  I do this every 3 years as the old sites always want higher fees.  For some reason they would rather lose the account than compete on price.  Probably figuring many will avoid the hassle and pay up.

For a day, the site may be inaccessible as the DNS servers are repopulated with the correct IP address.   I shall return.  Whether you want that to happen or not. 🙂

I wouldn’t call myself a denier in the Warming scam.  I tend to think of it as more a cash cow for scientist and fellow travelers.  Seems we can afford anything in these times and the folks involved have set out to prove it. Read more…

Happy New Year?

January 3rd, 20162 comments
