Thoughts On A Sunday

Old Man Winter gave us a little reminder that he wasn't gone yet, dropping sleet and freezing rain across much of New Hampshire on Friday. The roads got so bad that my employer sent us home at 2PM Friday afternoon. Most of what fell of Friday was melted away by the end of the day Saturday, but it still had a chilling effect one some of the weekend activities.


It appears Bogie had even less fun with the snow/sleet we received on Friday.


It's bad enough when we have private citizens trying to tell us what we can and cannot say, but now a US Senator is trying to dictate to a television network who it can and cannot allow to sponsor a NASCAR race.

Apparently this senator hasn't learned the lesson about starting an argument with someone who buys ink by the tanker car and has one of the more popular TV news channels in the US.


My family has been using Netflix now for about a month and I can say that, for the most part, I like it. There are connectivity issues from time to time, usually when I'm first trying to load the video I've selected, but other than that it works just fine.

Welcome to the fold, brother.

As Neo asks, “Would this be a good video to send to liberal friends who seem amenable to persuasion?”

Why do Liberals want to impose draconian gun control laws upon law abiding citizens?

They want to instill fear into people, hence making it easier to make them even more dependent upon the government. But who will protect us from the government? Certainly not Liberals.

Gee, for a newspaper that thinks everyone in the GOP are nothing but war-mongering capitalists getting rich off war profits, the New York Times thinks it's perfectly OK to call for the bombing of North Korea.

However I have no doubt they would be the first to condemn such a bombing if the US government – headed by their savior, Barack Obama – were to follow their advice. And they'd still find some way to blame George W. Bush for the whole thing.


And that's the (abbreviated) news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where the winter weathers has retreated again, spring cleaning has started in earnest, and where better weather is on its way.
