Tuesday – Chipmunk Hoarding (It is Winter~)

PN:

Too busy playing outside in the -10°C “All Seasons Playground™” called Vernon to rant. Some virtual lint that’s been gathering for days (and weeks) under my virtual bed follows……. or is it virtual verbal diarrhea?

Best line ‘o the week:

Something a Liberal / Progressive was overheard saying: ” Yes, yes, we know conservatism works in practice, but will it work in theory?” – from a Bill Whittle dialogue (original source unknown).

Best return to school speech (too bad no one in Kanuckistan has the ‘nads to speak it):

Comments you noble educators out there?

Note to Myself:

There is a problem in Gmail with embedding pictures from files vs virtual clipboard that I haven’t figured out. What am I doing wrong? Best I can do is resend this note with the pictures re-inserted.

Note to PN:

According to a reliable source (Google) the previous New Year’s greeting / 2010 summary I spent three hours thinking about and constructing disappeared a number of pictures / graphic images that I had so carefully arranged. What poppy-cock! The images that disappeared were of my beautiful children and relatives. WGAS about the cartoons? Why doesn’t it disappear them? Please excuse me clogging your inbox with another of the same – my effort is to have the email delivered as I constructed. That isn’t too much to ask of Gmai, but apparently I’m not up to the task. Working on it, Boss. The original note follows with images inserted once again.

PN:

December 31st is time for reflexion, assessment, goal reviews, plan revision, target alignment, bull s**t broadcasting. And resolve (I’ll leave redemption for another time). 1st day of 2011 and I’m already one day behind!

Here goes……… something.

Einstein is credited for stating:”insanity is doing the same thing over and over again – and expecting different results”.

While planning an exodus to Arizona in November, it suddenly dawned on me that my actions of the past 6 years have been a textbook case of insanity (reference above quote). I looked around the house, the yard, and in the shop. I say things like “I’m going to get all of these vehicles out of here!”, and “I will be an American citizen before I die”, yet the talk isn’t enabling the walk. There are more vehicles, more projects, more clock vampires™ sucking away at the only valuable asset I have (or any of us have) – time. This will not do.
