Welcome to Wednesday, the day formerly known as “Hump Day,” and thankfully that marketing meme is over. Rain and more fog from last night into this morning, and as I write this, it continues to rain. I went to sleep with the sounds of foghorns on the lake and they were back this morning as well.
Some random thoughts and musings:
Is Flonase a medical treatment or a way to get us to learn math?
I hear ads on iHeart Radio about home phone service. Do people really still have home phones and if so what percentage of the population of the U.S., falls into this category?
Glen Beck continues to repeat a fact that 500,000 pages of new regulations have been added, by the Obama Administration, to the ever growing list of federal regulations. While this seems to be an overabundance, how does this compare to previous administrations at this point of their second term?
I saw, thanks to my friend Duane Lester that McDonalds is now going to be serving breakfast all the time. It’s great to see important headlines and news stories like this move to the forefront of the news cycle. We all need a break from “The Donald,” changing the names of mountains, and there’s certainly no need to be discussing the Iran debacle.
In passing, I am glad to see that Carly Fiorina is to be included in the upcoming Presidential debate. I’m not confident that CNN will be able to bring any substance to their viewing audience, the same as Fox News was unable to do so either. The larger issue here is the fact that the first primary isn’t until February of 2016, so this is, to put it in a sports analogy, all just preseason fluff.
Dinner is cooking away in the crockpot. It’s cool and rainy and so, in went some chicken thigh quarters, onion a variety of spices and some liquid. Covered and set on low, and dinner will be mostly done by later afternoon. I’ll do some rice and some veggies, and we have tonight’s meal and plenty of left over chicken for another couple of meals.
I’ve been posting more photos and some video to Flickr and some of the other social media sites to give folks a look at our world. Please feel free to comment and like or not as the mood strikes you.
Black Lives Matter has been an ongoing meme and news item for the past couple of weeks. I’m wondering just why this has taken hold of peoples conversations and news feeds. As a reasonable person, who can think for themselves, why are we segmenting our population. If we’re all just supposed to get along, why don’t “All Lives Matter?” As I read postings and news items, “All Lives Matter” appears to be as offensive as anything else that comes along these days. Again, as a reasonable thinking human being, don’t all lives matter? Apparently not depending on your upbringing and or political leanings.
