Funny how when you're looking for an image what pops up. About half of what came up looked like BC bud although never having imbibed in that particular brand how could one know it was from BC? But then getting off track a bit.
Another 400K+ unemployment claims last week. Will it end with the November elections? Hope so. For all they've done to us I'd like to shove a bunch of republicans out the congerssional door and have them live in a cardboard box for a while. Then should I see them on the street I could tell them what bums they are. How does it feel to be on the receiving end of your lack of legislation senator?
Queen Elizabeth has canceled a planned Christmas party at Buckingham Palace. Tight economy you know. Must save up for the prince's wedding gift. You know what a Bently costs these days? But come on guys even we got rid of the red carpet and the throng of trumpeters tooting 'Hail to the chief'.
To be a first officer a pilot must now have 1500 flight hours. Hummm? I need 4000 hours to be a lead man on a haz mat job. And the airlines are complaining that that's too much time. That they'll be forced to pay for more experienced pilots. Ah, isn't that the way it usually works?
I'm sure the joy of the mine rescue will be short lived as the book deals get signed, the talk shows are booked and the next reality drivel is hatched. Then there'll be the scandals and law suits and all the other nick nackery that goes with such events. Let me tell you the hardest part for the miners was the first 17 days when they weren't sure if they'd get out. Once they were known to be alive and had access to food and water it was down hill from there.
I'll need a new remote for the TV after this election season. Or at least a new mute button. I've seen less mud on a construction site in the middle of rainy season. Hit the mute button again would you? It's another attack ad.
