Well, shall we all say hello to Thursday? For some of you, the day is half over, for us living on the eastern seaboard of the US, the day is just beginning, and for those of you still sleeping farther to our west, don't worry, morning is coming your way.
Today is a workday for me. 6.5 hours. That means I have a lunchbreak. I'm taking rice and meatloaf, with lots of tomatoey sauce. Yum. Also, 2 bananas for my fresh fruit supplement.
I have plans to go down to York, PA on Sunday, so I'll probably bake a peach cobbler tomorrow. And, in case any of you are wondering about my nectarine tree, well, this will be the 3rd year without any fruit. Not that there weren't any nectarines, it's just that the squirrels have been eating them. They must find the green, unripened fruit tasty.
As most know, I enjoy Alternative Music. Some call it Rock, as in rock & roll. I rarely listen to old music; I've already lived through it once. Unlike a lot of people, I feel very little need to regularly dance down memory lane. Give me fresh and new. The 1975 was founded in 2002, so that means it is not a new band for some, but to me it is. Any band that can work the word ejaculate into a lyric is pressing the boundaries. This song is great!
And Lyndsey Graham is trying to quash his subpoena. Whatever he's hiding must be scaring the shit out of him. Good. He's gone to Federal Court to keep from having to lie under oath.
Remember when, after Biden won, all of the pundits, and many, many in the media said the midterms were going to go Republican? Easy, peasy fact, they said, the winning party always loses in the midterms. Well, it turns out that they were wrong. the midterms races are closer than Hell. Oops. Ain't that a pisser if you happen to be a Republican? And it also turns out many voters want to upend the system. They are not happy that a minority party managed to steal the Supreme Court. They are not happy with having their votes nullified by gerrymandering. They are fed up with the Electoral College deciding the presidency. They are sick and tired of their congressmen and congresswomen over riding what they want in order to push party politics. Basically, a large majority of Americans what to satisfy the majority and put Americans first. And mostly, it seems, they blame conservatives. This is not good for a minority party who so desperately feel the need to say, "shut up, we're in charge."
