(Hey, sometimes things other than post take priority!)
**********BeezleBub finished off the retail season at the farm yesterday, closing out the season with an evening working at the corn maze. He won't be working again until after Thanksgiving when he'll be back to work cutting, splitting, and stacking firewood for next year and the year after. (Some firewood takes a year to dry, other wood – oak and maple, to name two – take two years to dry properly.
I know the next month is going to be torture for him, but at least he knows he'll be back at the farm in December.
**********The mid-term campaigns are coming to an end and I think we can expect a major push in campaign ads, telephone polls, and last minute campaign stops. It's going to be totally chaotic.
I can't wait for the quiet to return the day after the elections.
**********The siding work at the Bogie Estates is finished and the house looks pretty spiffy if I do say so myself.
**********If we need an example of why socialism should be considered a disease no different than alcoholism, then this one should do.
Some folks still haven't been able to figure out that socialism has to be paid for by someone and that once that 'someone's' money is gone, so is socialism.
Then again no one's ever said socialists are capable of the long view. History has certainly proven that one more than one occasion.
**********One of the other reasons I'm not putting together my usual lengthy Sunday posts is, quite frankly, a problem with the cooling fan on the video card in my computer. You see, it doesn't work anymore. That means the GPU on the card will overheat after a while and cause the video card to fail forcing a reset on my machine. It's quite annoying and at the moment I can't justify buying a new card, particularly since I have the means of fixing the cooling problem. It's just a matter of actually getting to it...maybe Monday...or Tuesday...or some other day.
**********Kathleen McKinley links to a letter by a life-long Democrat horrified by what Obama has done to the Democrat Party.
This reminds me of Ronald Reagan's explanation about why he became a Republican: “I didn't leave the Democrat Party. It left me.”
