I hate cold weather.
For me, Illinois sucks. Brutal winters, damp and cold spring and fall.
If I am lucky, I get 3 months of sweltering hot !!!! That’s what I like !!
But, the only thing that I like about cold weather is ladies wearing tight sweaters…………….
WEATHER HYPE !!!!
First, anyone in the path of a hurricane whether it is a cat 1 or a cat 5, could be in serious danger and it’s important to take all caution needed.
It was only 4-5 days ago that I had heard a media person suggesting that Dorian would ravage all of Florida as a cat 5, hit the Gulf of Mexico, gather energy and hit New Orleans just as hard.
Well, shucks, looks like it changed course and that ain’t gonna happen.
I hardly pay attention to weather reports weeks or even days out with speculation on whatever the upcoming weather apocalypse is coming.
It’s not just that soooooooooooooooo often they are wrong, they are VERY wrong.
Makes for lots of yackity, yackity, yak for the talking heads.
$1,000 Apple Monitor Stand
Apple just announced a $5,000 computer screen that doesn’t come with a stand. Instead, the stand costs an extra $1,000.
It’s not made of carbon fiber or encrusted with jewels. Though the stand seems to be perfectly nice, it doesn’t appear to stand out in any particular way.
It is exactly what it proposes to be: a computer-monitor stand.
This isn’t just bad marketing, this is really bad optics for Apple.
I grew up in a corn field. That is not a complaint. I loved where I grew up and God willing, I’ll die in the same corn field (in a better way than the Spilotro Brothers).
I went to the local Jr. College my first year and for Halloween weekend, I drove a couple of hours to visit an older friend at another college for a Halloween party. My friend was not a big partier and the party we were at was “hosted” by the service organization at the small college so it wasn’t an Animal House type bash, but it was loads of fun. (about 6 to 1 chick to dude ratio in the service club!!!)
The party probably ended about 1 am and we (some girls too) went back to my friend’s house. He turned the TV on and it was almost taking drugs (so I hear) !!!
This was something we didn’t have in the cornfields.
We all watched MTV until after 4 am and the very first music video I saw was:
Have to be at work today, so another gas station breakfast.
Actually, the sausage biscuits are really good.
