Spring?

Dare we even hope spring is around the corner? Today it got up to almost 50 and a bunch of the snow melted and revealed a bunch of dog poop! I bought a metal rake and for the lack of better word a poop-pan. Works great! And even tasks like picking up dog crap seems somewhat pleasant as the sun is shining and the birds are making noises. Oh yeah!!! And i saw our neighbor having new carpers done or at least old ones pulled out. Perhaps a prelude to them putting their house on the market!?!?! Woohoo!

That was mean… but honest. What else? I got to finally try my “new” revolver! It’s pretty sweet! Shoots great! Trigger is smooth and loading / unloading is like butter. Perhaps videos to come… now. Also tried the new Dunn Bros in New Richmond… Well… I hope they work the kinks out cuz it took a long time to get a coffee…. and not as good as here in Hudson.

While we are at it banning things.

!!! BREAD IS DANGEROUS !!!

Research on bread indicates that:

1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.

5. Bread is made from a substance called “dough.” It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!

6. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and osteoporosis.

7. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

8. Bread is often a “gateway” food item, leading the user to “harder” items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

9. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

10. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

11. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.

12. Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling.

In light of these frightening statistics, it has been proposed that the following bread restrictions be made:

1. No sale of bread to minors.

2. A nationwide “Just Say No To Toast” campaign, complete celebrity TV spots and bumper stickers.

3. A 300 percent federal tax on all bread to pay for all the societal ills we might associate with bread.

4. No animal or human images, nor any primary colors (which may appeal to children) may be used to promote bread usage.

5. The establishment of “Bread-free” zones around schools.

Second post of tha 2018

What’s new? Well hopefully next week it will be our bed! Time to update our 15 years old bed with a new one. What else? In late December our office moved to a different building with new cubicles. The new desks are great!! Push of a button you can lift them into standing desks! NICE! But my cube is in a hallway with lots of traffic as there is a exit at the end of the hall and two meeting rooms.

Not only that my cube is a 3/4 cube. What’s that you might ask well let me tell you it’s a cube with no wall towards the hallway!!! Distraction central!!!! Feels like everyone is looking over ones shoulder, not that it matters but it’s really distracting.

Commuting is shorter parking is free and so on so all in all it’s an upgrade distraction or not.

Also I got myself a Xmas present. A Ruger Single Six 6.5″ revolver! It’s a used one and manufactured in 1974. Looks almost new!

Let’s see… it’s been cold I mean REAL cold sub zero temps for the last two weeks and tomorrow is the first day that they have promised decent temps (high 20’s low 30’s).

Now it’s time to go grocery shopping. Ugh….
