And so my weekend begins. Not having to work is nice. Temps are supposed to climb into the mid 50's (F) today. I'm fine with that. We have the same forecast for tomorrow. The skies are supposed to be cloudy, but moderate temperatures will abound. Starting Thursday, things are supposed to cool off. We are still officially in winter for the next 3 weeks or so. When the season will finally leave I anybody's guess.
I had an old George Foreman rotisserie which hadn't been used in years, so I put it out on the curb for garbage. This morning it was gone, picked up by a hoarder, or someone planning on selling it at a Flea Market. At least someone will be getting some use out of it, hopefully.
Biggie is lying beside me as I write this. The balm is soothing his paws, but I suspect I will end up taking him to the Vet. I hate that, not because his Vet group is cruel, or heartless, but because they no problem using your emotion to price gouge. I tell people this constantly using this example: The carprofen he takes daily for arthritis? They charge $48.70 for a 30 day supply, Chewy charges me $11.53 for the same 30 day supply.
I watching music videos on YouTube yesterday and clicked on this one out of curiosity. As I sat listening to the music, I realized how pretty this song was. Surprisingly, this is Bjork. You know? The musician who wore the goose dress to the Oscars.
And, of course, the Ukraine is still standing. Yesterday Switzerland set aside their historically neutral status and joined with the rest of the EU. They shut down their banks to Russian transactions. From the BBC: the Russian economy is collapsing. Good. One thing you need to remember, though, is that Putin doesn't care about the Russian people, in fact, he doesn't even care about Russia. You see, Putin's a billionaire and while people have tried to locate his assets, no one has. The hardships effecting the Russian people are not going to bother him. He doesn't care how many lives are lost. He doesn't care if the Ukraine is destroyed. He is, in other words, your true Republican. We do not want someone even remotely like a Vladimir Putin running this country. Vote blue, other wise this country will fall into chaos.
