Happy Birthday, sarahj2222!!

Happy Belated Birthdays to everybody I've missed over the last couple of days, few weeks, several months. I keep wanting to spend more time here but time seems to be in short supply.

I'm not feeling quite ready to leave just yet, but I know it's seriously time to get serious about looking for a job.

Last night we had our fourth major snowstorm in as many weeks. With minor ones in between. It was another blizzard that dumped over a foot of snow on top of the six or seven feet we already had.

Good news? We haven't lost power even once. Yet.

Bad news? Another storm is coming Tuesday. I'm starting to worry a little about the roof.

It's not hard to see why the Raiders haven't won a game yet.

The Governor's race here in Massachusetts is going down to the wire. All four referendum questions went opposite to the way I voted. It looks as if my long-term State Senator, whom I voted for, is going to lose to a guy named Fattman.

In New Hampshire, all the news organizations are declaring Jean Shaheen the winner over Scott Brown. Please let it be true. It's also a close race.

Here's my thought about the U.S. Senate. If the Democrats keep control, things aren't going to go so well for them in 2016. If the Republicans take over, which appears to be about to happen, a majority of voters will be so disgusted with them that the Democrats will fare much better in two years. Wishful thinking? Maybe.

Good night and good luck!

For the first time in I have no idea how many years, I filled my car up with gas and paid less than $3.00 per gallon.

Happy Birthday, dreamyunicorn!

I'm not being very good about updating again yet. And if you had a birthday in the last six months or thereabouts, Happy Belated! Sorry I missed it.

The transition from an almost seven-year-old computer to a brand new one should not be difficult. The frustration factor has been way too high. Hoping to be finished with the process tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

Meanwhile, been watching the coverage of the Olympics, hoping there are no terrorist attacks more than anything else.

As for the Beatles, am I the only one to whom it seems it's been "fifty years ago today" for like a week now?

Computer situation permitting, I'll be back soon. No, really. :)

I just found out it's been gone since April. Just another example of me not paying attention to stuff, I guess.

I just realized that two days ago was the tenth anniversary of the start of this journal. Ten whole years. Holy shit!

Today is the first day I ever saw a family of wild turkeys in my own yard. There were seven or eight of them. I had just gotten home when they came around from the back yard, walked by me next to the driveway, and crossed the street. Only one car had to stop for them, and fortunately it did. They stayed in my neighbor's yard for a while, then they moved on.
