Up and at 'em this morning to a world of white. We were dumped on last night by that Jack Frost guy. Now the world is a white landscape and after I finish this, finish my coffee and get cleaned up I have to get the snowblower out and clean up the mess the plow guy left at the end of the drive way. It appears that somethings never change. I'm not complaining, cleaning up the mess at the end of the driveway gives me a chance to see if the snow blower with work as advertised.
Just before I started this I was on that wild west roller coaster ride called twitter. Somehow I've manage to add 20% to my followers over night. Oh these fickle flavor of the moment people. One thing I did learn is the government survey for how we vote is finally up an running. So I took the time and answered the fifty or so questions so now I can say I've had my say. One thing I will say about the questions is the bias against the system we have already got in place. In the end I don't really think it matters, the folks in Ottawa will do what ever they want to do. Over the years I have found two things about our form of Government. First, that our elected overlords are only accountable once ever five or so years. Second, the only real promise a politician will ever keep is that the politician will make promises.
Here are a few links for your entertainment.
The folks in Ottawa a few months ago adopted a new payroll system that from the start hasn't worked properly. Some of the mandarins haven't see a pay cheque in months, others are in dire straights with the prospect of loosing homes to foreclosure. Then on the other side of the coin are the fellows who were over paid. Sadly the payroll people giveth and the payroll guys taketh away.
It's good to see The Donald is good for something. While his predecessor was a great sales person for the firearms industry it looks like The Donald is doing the same for the encryption app and software industry.
When I first saw this I simple cracked up into serious laughter. Here's a story about a fake US embassy that has been in operation for years. I bet they did a better job than the guys at the real embassy.
The Russians are still conduction air operations in the Mediterranean and their fighters are still crashing.
Nothing like having a state funeral and just when the eyes of the world are upon the motorcade the hearse breaks down. Just another day in the socialist paradise of Cuba.
Here's a guy who should buy a pair of Depends and some lottery tickets.
