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

Friday, November 10, 2023


 Friday has arrived and the forecast is for cloudy skies with the possibility of showers.  Temps should climb into the low 50s (F), which isn't bad if you're trying to save money on your heating bill.  I'm on the UGI budget plan and I'm heading into December with a credit on my account because the days have been so warm.  No heavy heating so far this year.

Yesterday Lily and I finished off the cake and ice cream.  That little old lady loves ice cream, French Vanilla.  Her Chewy food order will be delivered today.  Besides the canned food she loves, her Cosequin is also in the order; a supplement that helps with her joints.  She's been getting 2 every day for years.  I don't know if it helps or not, but she looks forward to those 2 faux chocolate treats every morning.

Supposedly my "ticket" has been escalated in regards to Starfield.  At this point, I don't know what they can do to help.  With only 5 save slots, and with no way off the ship, I'm pretty much screwed.  Losing 28 Levels and over 70+ hours of gameplay because one of my files got corrupted sucks.  Normally using Quicksave is a way to help you get through difficult situations, however for me it seems to have turned out to be a curse.

And here it is, November 10, and I still have roses here in Central PA.

Yesterday Joe Manchin notified the world that he was not going to run for re-election.  For those who don't know, Manchin is a 76 year old, faux Democrat from West Virginia.  Rumors are that he wants to run against Biden for the Democrat nomination.  He claims to be a Centrist, though votes Conservative most of the time, and... did I mention that he's 76 years old.  Crimeny!  He evidently doesn't pay attention to current complaints about old, and older candidates.  Some think he's going to run to ensure Trump wins the election and Republicans take control of the government again.  That would suit Manchin because he's wealthy and we all know that greed is at the heart of all Conservative politics.  Their agenda is always geared around enriching themselves.  


  1. Mancin apparently wants to run for president.
    Right. Cause he did so well during these last years.
    But let him run. That gray-haired demon, Putin Pawn is also running. Let her run. They'll go the way Kennedy went.


    1. Yeah, let him run and make a fool of himself.

  2. From the outside it almost seems mandatory that those in power in the US have to be knocking 80!!! While I'm sure many are still capable, so many others are probably just being played by their puppet masters or simply can't stand the idea of no longer being "important". I saw that a lot at work too - people who had been diplomats during their working life and next time I see them they're pushing a wonky trolley round the supermarket!

    1. I think part of the problem is that many are raised with the concept that older is wiser, and that may be in some cases, however, that doesn't mean they should be running a country. Wiser is nice, but they're also slower. And I like the bit about the wonky trolly!
