April 4th

Well…it was an okay day yesterday but I didn’t get much done….the furnace appears to be fixed so that takes a load off and it is nice and toasty in here…and, it needs to be since it felt just so cold when I went out for the papers and I couldn’t wait to get back in the warm….slept okay last night and no earplugs for a second night so that is something….no dreams, though, and that is more annoying than anything else….I did get a bike ride in yesterday and I didn’t think I would…but I won’t today with the high staying under 40 and I just don’t want to go full thermasuit….I was going to run errands today but I just don’t feel like it right now….not much to do today…going to just hang out around here today and maybe clean the kitchen but that’s it….more later…

Just some stuff…

Well….even with all that is going on in politics, I haven’t been able to distill things down to a single topic so I think I’ll just noodle around and see where it goes….had to call the guys back to work on the furnace again and this time they replaced the brain that runs the thing…has been working since they left so I have my fingers crossed….it has been interesting this week to see that ole Donald has started to self destruct and show his know nothingness on basically every topic…from foreign policy to economics, his ignorance is just breathtaking and people are starting to catch on….and, the thing we have to remember is that even if he is the candidate, his own party really doesn’t like him much with his unfavorables being in the 60% range…and no one has ever been elected with them that high…his only support is within his rabid racist base and he has no appeal to the independents that are needed to win….I guess he appeals to the same folks that used to watch his reality show….oh, one last thing…sister Sarah did a speech for Trump in Wisconsin the other day that people walked out on…maybe her schtick is finally wearing thin?  Not too soon, that’s for sure….

April 3rd

Well…it was an okay day yesterday and I got a bunch of stuff done for a change so that was cool….slept okay last night and did it without earplugs for the first time in over two years….the furnace in the unit above me has stopped making noise so I can sleep again without them…not sure what I think about that yet but it is nice to not have that high pitched screeching all the time…my furnace crapped out last night so I had to call maint here and that means a lot of work on my part….but the fix was quick and it seems to be fine now so that is cool, too….was a little cold in here until they fixed it….didn’t get a bike ride in yesterday with all the snow and I’ll have to wait until later today to go so the ice will melt off the trails….not much to do today….have a little cleaning to do but that is about it….so it will be low key….more later….

April 2nd

Well….it was an okay day yesterday but pool sucked so that was not cool….slept okay last night and the Wings won a game they had to so that helped some…didn’t get anything done at all yesterday so today will have to be different…I do have a bunch of stuff to do around here so that will keep me busy today…no pain for the 5th week now so I think I’ll stop updating that…the allergies are normal so I won’t talk about that either…cripes, I may not have anything to talk about if I omit that stuff…oh, well….I did get a bike ride in yesterday and got pretty cold and it took forever to warm up….and my legs were very flat and I’m not sure why…not much to do today…..going to get some work done around here and then clean…and watch some soccer with coffee but that is about it…more later…

April 1st

Well….it was an okay day yesterday and I made some cash so that was cool…and I got the ham soup done and it came out great, to me, so I think I’ll set that recipe in stone and not change it anymore….slept okay last night but feel a little slow today and that is okay…need some time for coffee and to just ease into the day….it looks like it is going to be damn cold again for the next week and I know it’s Michigan and that happens in April but that doesn’t mean I have to like it….will be back in the thermasuit and gloves again today on the bike but it will be dry so I guess that is something….almost decided to go out on the bike yesterday afternoon but didn’t…and that was a good thing since it started to pour about 10 minutes later….not much to do today…pool, but that is about it…the bathroom needs a cleaning and I may do that before pool but I might not…more later…

Dem infighting and repub repbranding…

Well…it has been a busy day but I did get the ham soup made and made some cash…but, I do have one more to do to get to the goal for the month so here goes…the first thing I want to talk about is the dem infighting that is going on between the Hillary and Bernie supporters. I understand that many of the Bernie supporters are new to the political process and are more driven by idealism… but, politics is a process that needs a dose of realism as well….and that reality is the Hillary will probably win the nomination and no matter how much that hurts Bernie’s supporters (and I am one of them) we need to get back to reality and support the nominee of our party…to sit out the election will hand it to Drumpf and to any person that is based in reality, that can’t be better than having Hillary as president. The second thing is a funny article I read about the “rebranding” of the repubs that will happen if they lose the election…I laughed when I read that…rebrand to what? The repub party is JUST what they have been showing in this primary season…a group of racist, mysoginist, haters that are reflecting exactly what their base is….that no minorities need apply…that women are just things that have no rights to control their own bodies…that christians deserve special rights to discriminate against everyone they don’t like and the repubs will use the government to deliver this hate….if this is your vision of America, you sure as hell shouldn’t be here reading this….go back to redstate….geez….

March 31st

Well…it was an okay day yesterday and I had a nice lunch with T so that was cool…slept okay and had some dreams that involved this site getting hacked (which really happened a few weeks back) so I couldn’t get to it….but, I figured out what was happening and repaired it so I guess that’s why I didn’t mention it…and they had put posts here that were in Russian so I guess it must have been the Russians….damn Russians….I am not sore anywhere for about the third week in a row and now I am wondering why….I always have some pain somewhere and the moving tendon pain is even gone…wonder why that is? Not taking anything for it so that is a little confusing since it has been going on for years now….not complaining….not much to do today….with the rain, it looks like I won’t get on the bike today…going to try if I get a break in the rain since it is already almost 60 and I could go out in a t-shirt….but, I’m not going to freeze and get wet…that just has no appeal to me today…I am making ham soup today and I have some errands to run…going to make a little cash today, too…so that is cool…more later….

Still searching…

Well…even though there are lots of things happening in politics, much of it is so ridiculous that I can’t work up any outrage about it…I mean, Drumpf giving the excuse for the manhandling of a reporter by his campaign manager that the pen she was holding could have been a bomb? Delusional to say the least…but, so was his meltdown the other day on a phone call to a Wisconsin right wing radio show where the host just drilled him on everything he said….then we had Anderson Cooper going after him for acting like a 5 year old in the debate and the slow motion destruction of Drumpf is underway….but, I can’t say more about the liar Cruz that he is any different…he really isn’t and to know about Kasich, just take a look at what he did in Ohio…not the lies that he said he did or will do…just more of the same bait and switch that all of the repubs do to trick people into voting for them…can you say right to work, Snyder? It appears that the right wing nonsense is starting to unravel, finally, but the sick thing is that it is always the dems that have to come in and fix the damage that the repubs do…and I am tired of it…okay, this one was kind of all over the place….have not been as lucid as normal over the past few days and I’m not sure why…I will try to get better…that’s all I can do….

March 30th

Well…it was an okay day yesterday and I got a few things done so that was cool…slept okay last night for a change but still feel a little slow this morning and I think it is the allergies flaring up…and, Target is changing it’s pharmacies to cvs and they no longer have the allergy stuff I have been using…so now the hunt begins to find something that works…I did get the chance to run some errands with the top down yesterday and that made me smile a little…and I got gas before it went up 30 cents a gallon so that was cool, too….I’m hoping to get out on the bike in shorts this morning but it will have to get to 47 or better before 10….or I can wait until this aft to go but it is supposed to rain….not much to do today….might have lunch with T but that is about it…I do have to clean some today, too, but not too much in the kitchen since I’m going to make ham soup tomorrow and that usually makes a big mess….more later…

Some hope in NC…

Well…with the passage of the new pro discrimination law in NC…the backlash has been fun to watch with company after company telling their idiot governor that they will leave the state and him trying and failing to justify the law…and now, the democratic attorney general has said that he will not defend the law in court…and there have been a number of suits already filed by the ACLU and others…I’m not sure what that will mean to getting the law repealed but there is one observation I want to make here…on every issue of expanding the rights of all the people, so everyone has equal rights, the dems are on the right side and the repubs are always on the side of oppression and keeping people from getting their rights…and, some repubs are starting to realize it….I read a quote the other day that a leading repub was lamenting that the country is leaving them behind and he is not sure what place conservatives have here anymore…I’d like to say your bigoted, cheating ways have no place in the US anymore…and I hope we show them that at the ballot box in November…geez…

What you never want to be….
