I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

The nominating process

 It's Tuesday, and that means I'm beginning my 4 day mini-vacation which begins every Tuesday.  I don't mind working weekends, mostly because I end up doing so much during the week.  Perhaps if I felt the need to watch football, or basketball, I might feel differently, but I like cycling and races are run any and every day of the week, not merely on weekends in order for networks to earn ad revenue.

Outside, the temp is 30 (F).  We're heading into a warming trend.  Highs today will be in the mid 40s (F).  We'll end up in the low 50s (F) by the end of the week.  We will also be getting rain.  Not nearly as much as in San Diego.  I have a Navy friend who lives there and so I got to see pics of the flooding.  Because they rarely get downpours in Southern California, none of the towns and cities are prepared.  They will have to adjust, or get flooded away.

I have all of the necessary paperwork to do my taxes, so either today or tomorrow I'll get that chore out of the way.

The Oscar nominations will be out in about an hour.  I'm debating on whether I want to watch.  I subscribe to Disney and they own ABC, but I don't know if Disney's going to do anything.  Actually, I just took a brief pause and pulled the announcements up on YouTube.  There are almost 6000 people signed in, some of them commenting.  Ugh.  Those streaming comments never make any sense.  I want to bake a loaf of bread this morning, so maybe I'll go downstairs and put that together before the announcements begin.

Here's a pic I took from my cycling, jogging, free weight, and blogging room this morning.

The New Hampshire primary is also today.  Trump and Pelosi Haley go head to head.  Is the burning question:  Did his attorney, Habba, come down with Covid symptoms in order for him to be in the Granite State today?  I know it doesn't pertain to his winning that primary, I think many believe that a done deal.  If the question isn't about Habba's sudden illness, could be in regard to Haley's performance?  You do know, she doesn't have to win, just earn enough votes to slap him severely up side his head, and maybe knock him down so he can bruise his other hand.  I'm hoping she comes close, then he's going to go on the attack, not only against her, but against women in general, and while his cult won't mind, many, many other women in this country will.  Many already blame him for loading the Supreme Court in order to get rid of Roe v Wade.  He did that to get the Evangelical vote, but even they're beginning to splinter off.


  1. Love that pic!
    And I was kind of disappointed Jabba the Orange didn't testify yesterday. They made sure they came across ad victims, even though E. Jean's lawyer and the judge said they would go ahead. Always lying.
    If Nimarata gets a portion of the votes (she may, who the fuck knows?) I agree with you: he'll go ballistic and attack her. I don't think Repug women would mind. Undecided and those eyeing the No Labels bullshit may, though...


    1. Old Nikki is going to do better than Trump 's team is expecting, and the cult is going to quiver like a bowl full of orange Jello dropped from a 2nd story window.

  2. I read where he was heckled at a speech in NH yesterday and was quite shook.

    1. Yes, I saw something to that effect, and you're right, good.

  3. That's a lovely picture! And uugghh the US elections. I'll try not to get so sucked in this time but I do end up watching more than I ever really want to!

    1. Believe me, you're not the only one dreading the elections.
