Tuesday. Rain. There's a loaf of Italian bread rising down on the kitchen counter and the smell of warm yeast is rising up through the house. Showers are supposed to be sporadic through out the day.
Of course, Biggie has to go for bloodwork at 2 PM, so that will be fun. They like it best when he fasts so they can get an accurate sugar read; if they want that they'll need to schedule appointments early. Since they don't open until 9 AM, that's going to happen rarely. The dogs are used to getting their first meal around 6 AM. I'm not going to starve them until late in the afternoon.
I've got a yen for stewed tomatoes, so I may be busy at the stove when we return.
Work was boring. We're not making plan. Prior to Covid, our weekly plan was between 800 and 900 hundred thousand. Now they want us to do about 1.2 million a week, some weeks a little more, some a little less. This is what greed looks like. The stockholders might decide to sell if we don't make plan. Right now our stock is about $220 (give or take a dollar) per share. We are way overpriced.
I saw this trailer last evening. I want to see this. I will probably have to find some channel that streams it since the theaters in Harrisburg will never play it.
Of course, it's election day down in Georgia. Is everybody sitting on pins and needles? Some media outlets are saying the contest is too close to call. I suspect this is more a ploy on their part to drive up ratings. They want people across the country to watch, it's good for ad buys. This is a problem, not, as the MAGAs say, they create fake news, rather they tend to create fake drama. Every pundit needs to put in his 2 cents to feed his or her ego. The words spilling from their lips are not necessarily what they actually believe, and they do use their platform to, if at all possible, drive up ratings. Ratings = ad buys. The more money advertisers are will to spend, the bigger the smiles in the corporate offices.
Me? I'm thinking Warnock has this in the bag. He's been through this before, remember, and last time his competition was not as stupid as Walker.
The NYT has an interesting take on Evangelicals and Trump. Leaders of the far right Christian group are seeming to have second thoughts about The Former Guy. Some are implying Trump may have used them the same way he used Stormy Daniels (my allusion). Well, no surprise there. However, these leaders have a problem. They've spent years festering the belief that God sent Trump to give them what they've been praying for: a socially conservative country. They have groomed their followers to say things like Trump doesn't lie, he's just being brash. Now, these leaders are concerned. "We don't want a Republican civil war," they whine. Someone should have told these dumbshits that every thing has a price, and Trump is going to extract every single penny he believes they owe him.
Ohhh that movie does look amazing. Love that story.ReplyDelete
And you know the fucking media is fucked up. If the people in Georgia do not elect Warnock, their shame will be great. Really. Another Southern state that is trash. But I think Warnock does have a better chance this time.
The Evilgelicals bet on Cheeto for power. They may get what they wanted with SCOTUS but they are tainted. They have always been scum.
Except for the Court turning back all of Trump's appeals, they've sided with the religious right, a shrinking minority, and are constantly proving themselves to more and more unpopular. America will fix them.Delete
That Three Muskateers looks like a must see to me. Don;'t speak French but I think I can get by. Now, as to the special election in GA. Well, I am going the old school approach. No interest until the polls close, Then watch until someone call it. Then go to bed. No all day sucker for me, especially if I am the sucker.ReplyDelete
While I enjoy politics, I haven't watched elections results in years. There's too much hype in the media and everyone wants to be seen as an expert.Delete
Crikey, that's quite a hike in the amount you're supposed to make isn't it! I remember my neighbour (when he was head of a bank in town) - they had targets and when they hit them he told everyone to dial it back because if they kept making target, well the targets would just get increased!ReplyDelete
During the covid lockdown we were one of the few essential stores open and we made bushels of bucks. Now that there's no lockdown, corporate has problems in dialing back stockholder's expectations.Delete
I think Blogger is eating up my comments. Again.
They going through. I moderate in order to delete the Bombay Hookers Assn. from advertising.Delete
If Georgia elects that idiotic clusterfuck then they deserve it.ReplyDelete
