For those who missed it, the winter solstice happened this morning at 0902. From now until June, our days are going to be getting longer (hurrah!). Tonight, if the skies are clear enough, you should be able to see the brightest star (actually 2 planets) in the past 800 years. Some ding-a-lings have decided they're going to call this the Christmas Star (actually 2 planets) because religion feels the need to take ownership. Me? I think we should all call it The Big Bright Light in the Sky because (and certain groups hate this) a vast majority of the world's population does not celebrate Christmas.
When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

The Big, Bright Light in the Sky
I picked up my Holiday Basket yesterday as I left work. Very nice and filled with goodies. I like baskets that are filled with goodies, but then doesn't everyone.
And last evening I broke down and ordered a Fenix 6 Pro since the government's going to be giving me a little check, emphasis on the size. Conservatives hate spending money, unless they can spend it on themselves. I'm sure they quite happy at only having to give struggling American's $600. They believe you should earn your money, rather than rely on the government... or a massive tax break which they gave to themselves and the 1%.
I find it fascinating that countries all around the world are shutting down air travel to the UK hoping to avoid the Covid strain... except for the United States. Of course, Conservatives see this mutation as just another variation of the flu, nothing more.
Oh, and for those who missed it, the Idiot Jerk's legal team filed another complaint with the Supreme Court yesterday in an effort to overturn the election. This is only to keep their base mollified. The real fun is going to happen on January 6, when Congress has to ratify the election. I understand there is mounting horror in the GOP they are going to have rogue senators object. These fools want to got out looking like bright, shining stars. Wrong, their embarrassing spectacle would make them look like dumb shits on parade.

Haha so the xtianists would like to call these two planets the xmas star? Idiots. But hey they'd believe anything.ReplyDelete
Glad you got goodies! Coming from the store they're all probably useful around the house.
And IMPOTUS is still trying to fuck things up. What a petty little man. He wants a coup and the Repugs will stand by. I hope they make a spectacle of themselves on January 6 so people know WHO they are. But they probably know already and don't care...
No, it was goody gifts, popcorn, candy, a mug... nothing from the storeDelete
ooooh, a food basket! dumphead needs to stop these fucking lawsuits.ReplyDelete
The longer he continues the more his truly nature evil is revealed.Delete
If the mutated virus is in the UK it's already everywhere, whether they ban flights or not. So here we go again I reckon!ReplyDelete
You and I know that, so many others don't.Delete
I consider myself a Christian and I also know that December 25 or thereabouts was chosen as a date for Christmas to steer people away from the “pagan” celebration of Saturnalia. Sheesh! Can nothing be enjoyed for what it is? An awesome celestial event that certain ppl want to politicize and use to fight about religion. I’m just counting the days til the orange maniac gets out of office.ReplyDelete
Here in Central Pa, it's going to be cloudy so we're going to have to rely on pics.Delete
Some days I feel as though we get what we deserve. The US is the biggest and most entitled country on the globe. And I don't see anything getting better...vaccine or not.ReplyDelete
Things will change for the better, that doesn't mean we're going to get to live in hunky dory land.Delete
