Well, I had planned on sleeping in yesterday but the dogs and their bladders would have none of it. This morning things were different. After I turned off the alarm at 0530, neither roused themselves. An hour and half later I climbed out of bed. Nice. I do like sleeping in now and then; wouldn't want to make the practice regular. Now the chores begin. Right now, I have eggs boiling to make egg salad. Don't know why, but for some reason I've been eating a lot of egg salad yesterday.
My new color printer arrived yesterday and setup is complete. Took longer than I thought, probably an hour since I took the time to connect it to the cloud and to my mobile device. That right. I can now print pictures straight from my phone. Isn't that nice. Also, and I found this a bit interesting, it's an Epson, which is owned by Seiko. For years and years the only watch I wore on my wrist was a Seiko.
The storm system that moved through yesterday gave us mostly rain, a touch of sleet, and a bit of ice early on.
I saw an interesting article this morning on how Wisconsin's tepid Covid response was the direct result of Republicans' gerrymandering. Over time, Republicans in that state have gerrymandered district lines in order to maintain control of the the state's legislature. That is not the case in Pennsylvania, where the State Supreme Court directed a redrawing of voting districts.
If we understand just one thing understand this: the GOP wants to limit voting because the more people that vote the more Democrats will win.ReplyDelete
That's my TED talk.
And a very good TED comment it is!!Delete
That s a great point. My ex was saying the same when we talked the other day. Dems need to get out and vote in everything they can. Dem get historically very lax. In the south east he always said Dems turn out is very low in primaries and local posts. Repukes show up for everything, including dog catcher.ReplyDelete
It's no time for us Dem to get lax or take for granted anything.
This is because Democrats are not a very aggressive party and that does need to change.Delete
Ha, was your calling 8 a.m. "a lie-in" a joke? I swear I must be a vampire then!ReplyDelete
I'm usually in bed by 11 PM. I get more things accomplished in the morning than I do in the evening.Delete
"Republicans refuse to understand that America is changing." - look at them howling over uncle joe's cabinet picks. dog forbid it's anything but a white str8 xstain male!ReplyDelete
I am in district #2 now. SO much better than before, a district with clearly drawn boundaries, instead of something drawn by a drunk frat boy.
I have not heard the word seiko in a long time. and I don't like egg salad. but I love your doggies!
I love egg salad, but then I also like deviled eggs, and they're pretty much the same thing except one's chopped up.Delete
Are they howling? I'm sure they are, but then they haven't represented America for quite some time.
The Repugs KNOW that if they don't gerrymander and cheat their way through elections they've lost. The Electoral College is their most egregious example of rigging everything. Hate them.ReplyDelete
People need to do something, really. Or we'll be in trouble in 2024...
