February 20th

Well…running late this morning and just can’t get going….had another fitful night of sleep that left me tired again and I think I made the coffee too light…it was kind of amber when I poured it, not the dark that it needs to be, so I think it is not going to work as well as I need it to…I didn’t have enough leftovers yesterday so I had to make a cup of tea and I couldn’t believe how much caffeine it has in it…like jet fuel but I don’t like the taste much…it took me many years to get used to coffee and I don’t want to put in that much time for tea at my age…it was kind of  down day yesterday and it was a struggle to get things done but I did get out to wash the car and then got two bike rides in…my shoulder hurts again this morning but I am going to hurt it some more with working out here in a few minutes….I did make another homemade pizza yesterday and I think I have the crust recipe down now…just the right thickness and taste so I need to write that down so I can repeat it in the future….not much to do today…just going to ease into it today since I don’t have any energy yet…probably won’t do much since I just don’t feel like it….more later…

Brexit supporters are just as stupid as trump’s

Well…as the deadline for the UK to leave the EU fast approaches, the pre-fallout of the economic chaos that is coming to the UK is starting to be much, much clearer. Just yesterday, Honda announced that it will close it’s plant there putting 3,500 people out of work and this is not the first company to understand that it will not be viable to continue to build anything in England. Airbus, Jaguar, and Nissan are just a few of the companies who have seen that their supply chains will see huge increases in costs without the integration of the EU but it doesn’t matter to the people who voted for brexit, whose primary reason for voting to leave the EU was their racist views on immigration and wanting to “keep England England” which is code for keeping “brown” people out. Sound familiar? In the US, the racist trump supporters did exactly the same thing and are seeing exactly the same results with the idiotic trump tariffs that are putting thousands of farmers out of business and the jobs that support those farmers are gone, too…and this is in areas that voted overwhelmingly for trump. Both trump followers and brexit supporters were lied to, with both trump and the parliments brexit MP’s saying that their economies would thrive and grow once “onerous regulations” were removed…but, it looks like the only thing being removed from England is jobs and the  minority who supported brexit just doesn’t care….their hate is their security blanket as their economy craters….and it is just going to get worse…

February 19th

Well…not sure how this happened but now both of my shoulders are hurting…man, I am getting really tired of the pain every damn day and now my heel has cracked and that hurts, too…okay, this is just depressing and I seem to feel creakier by the day…I know that I probably caused the pain in my shoulder by working out with full weight yesterday but it’s been two months…shouldn’t it be healed by now? Oh, well…didn’t sleep for crap last night and was up at 5:14 again and I think that may be part of not feeling that hot today…okay, done bitching about anything…had an okay day yesterday and got two bike rides in but didn’t get a lot else done…I am going to make another homemade pizza today for lunch since I have everything I need and I don’t want it to spoil…I do like the fresh mozzarella that I got last week but I am getting tired of cheese in general so I think I use up what I have left for the pizza and then freeze the other two pounds I have in the fridge…I think I’ll be eating out of the freezer for the next week or so since there is nothing on sale at any of the grocery stores that I use that I want to eat…have plenty of chicken in there but I need to get a little more creative in how I cook it…I do have to clean the kitchen counters today and the stovetop just so I can say that I did something today….more later….

The toddler in chief is whining again…

Well…will someone on the right please go read the first amendment to the toddler in chief? I know I say this a lot but trump is dumber than a box of rocks…and he put that stupidity on full display this weekend when he went off on twitter attacking SNL for hurting his fee fees with a hilarious takedown of his delusional, just frickin nuts speech announcing the “national emergency” that his fevered brain created out of thin air so he can build his stupid wall along the Mexican border. If you haven’t seen the tweets, the gist is he is calling for “retribution” against SNL for pointing out how ridiculous idiot boy is, and this bullshit just shows he knows nothing of the oath he took to protect the Constitution, or the fact that the first amendment protects most speech from interference by the government….but, hey…that never stopped the moron before, his ignorance has been on display for long enough now that this is, sadly, just par for the course…yeah, did you get that one? Ha, ha….luckily we have less than two years to have to put up with trump’s bullshit…or maybe even less as the multiple investigations close in on the crime family he heads…oh, and by the way…Mueller has found that Roger Stone DID conspire with Wikileaks and the Russians…and that information came from the Russians who were indicted by Mueller, not only from American evidence…so who is the colluder now, Donnie boy? Impeach…

February 18th

Well…I just realized something as I was pouring the first cup of coffee…the Mr. Coffee coffee maker that I am using now has outlasted every Black and Decker unit that I had before it…it’s almost two years now and that is twice as long as any one before…probably shouldn’t have said anything…it will probably quit later today…slept okay last night and didn’t get up until 6 this morning but I don’t feel as if I’ve slept too well…just feel sluggish and tired but I’m pretty sure I ate enough yesterday so that can’t be it…it could be that I’m just getting old which I am…it was an okay day yesterday but I didn’t get much done…didn’t even get on the bike since I wanted to rest my legs and help the pain subside some and it appears to have helped but I hurt everywhere else so I think I’ll take something for it before I get on the bike later…not much to do today…I was going to cook but decided that can wait til tomorrow with the leftovers I have in the fridge…and I have no motivation to clean but the coffee may help with that…more later…

I was going to bitch and whine…

Well…I was going to bitch and whine about the server being down all day today but it just started to work again so I think my son figured it out…that was the first time that I can remember that Plex even didn’t work and I was going through withdrawal with not being able to access any of the tv shows that I have been trying to catch up on…but, it hasn’t been too bad with Daytona on today…and it is even a pretty good race, not like the duels that I bitched about Thursday….man, I have become pretty dependent on having some entertainment on line with not a lot else to do so I think I may have to change that….but, right now, I think I’ll go back to the race…as you can see, no politics today…just don’t feel like it right now….

February 17th

Well…not sure if I’m running late or not…normally on Sunday I forget to come here but not today…just didn’t get started until a little later than normal since I got up at 5 but said the hell with it and went back to bed until 6:15…not sure why that is working lately but I’ll take it…the extra 45 mins in bed seems to make a difference…at least for the first hour or two that I’m up…here’s something weird…my feet hurt this morning and I can’t figure that one out…I know I have a heel crack on my right foot that is painful but this pain is all over them and that is new…oh, well….it just goes with the rest of the whole body pain I have today…cripes, I need to stop complaining about that…after all, I’m old and should hurt some…I did get some cleaning done yesterday and finally cleaned up the plastic that my weight machine is shedding along with vacuuming so I feel okay about that…but, I do need to do more today since this place is so dusty and needs some cobweb removal…but, not until more coffee and some news…might even take the day off the bike to just let the legs rest and recover….more later…

How’s the 2nd day of your emergency?

Well…with the scary 2nd day of the idiot trump’s national emergency, I have to ask: how’s everybody doing? Are you surviving it? Are you preparing in case it gets worse? Did you get your food and water laid in since this is so serious an emergency? Have you built your emergency shelter yet? Did you get your duct tape and plastic to cover your windows? If you haven’t, you’d better get going since the  wall is not there to protect us…just like it hasn’t been there to protect us for the past 240+ years and man, to think of the chances we took for all those years that maybe someone would come over the border to do a job that no American will do…please everyone, take care of your neighbors while this national emergency is going on and let’s hope we all survive it…headin for the bunker….impeach….

February 16th

Well…running kind of late today and just can’t get started so this one may be short…didn’t get up until almost 6:30 but, from 4:14 on, it was nothing but tossing and turning so I guess I got about 5 hours last night and that is not enough….still think I have the cold I have been fighting all week and I am really tired still….and I hurt everywhere again so I think I may take something for it and stay off the bike to rest the legs today….I went over 300 miles so far this year and it looks like I may be able to get to 500 or so before the snow melts in spring and I get back on the trail…that is if my legs can take it…didn’t get much done yesterday but I do need to clean some today…the footies I have been wearing to keep my feet warm have been shedding all over the place so I’ll at least need to vacuum today but should do more…not sure if I’m motivated to do more but we’ll see after the coffee and news…more later…

Trump is just nuts…

Well…okay, I will admit right away I didn’t watch much of the press conference that idiot boy gave to try to justify using “emergency powers” to try to build his stupid, stupid wall that was not funded by the congress…who control the appropriation of money to be spent by the government….and it is against the law to do what trump and his cronies are going to try to do…and that is steal money from other parts of government to build his racist wall, including money that is supposed to be spent on veterans and active duty service members. But, that is not the worst of it…the “news conference” was the most delusional piece of shit I have ever seen…and if this doesn’t invoke the 25th amendment and remove idiot boy from office, what will? trump is clearly unfit for the job and unable to perform the duties of the office, including the biggest one…to preserve and protect the constitution…this speech today shows he just doesn’t give a damn about that and is doing his best to destroy it…and the repubs, starting with Mitch McConnell is going along with it…making wreckage that will take decades of dem control to repair…and I am damn tired of our side having to clean up after the repubs…impeach…

What you never want to be….
