If you have 5 minutes you MUST watch this. If you have less time watch the 1st 10 seconds and then starting at the 3:30 mark - AMAZING
But first - the weather. No no - we know all about what is happening here. What is making me chuckle in an evil way is what is happening south of us. For instance, Springfield Missouri will have a High tomorrow of 5. Their record LOW is -7. So tomorrow we will be warmer then Missouri.
Europe is in the middle of a weather standstill and Britain is paralyzed. The temp dropped to -42 in parts of Scandinavia.
For me it was a long long ride to work. 151 was not to bad with the normal speed of 50mph unless you were a pick-up then it was 65 or a nervous nelly riding the brakes which slowed everyone down to 35. But the real weird thing was getting to Madison. We never actually came to a stop but for 5 miles I swear the speedometer never actually registered we were moving. I was thinking that perhaps the car was standing still but the earth was rotating below us but of course I doubt that was happening as then we would be moving at 1000 mph down East Washington.
Have a fun snow day.
But the news we all have been waiting for.
We the people of Columbus, welcome change and openness; for we believe that glass and cardboard should go together, that the advance of recycle-dom can only strengthen the cause of world peace. There is one sign the Public Works Department can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom, peace and garbage collection. Director of Public Works Dan Jensen, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity and ease of tossing out our beloved garbage for Columbus and possibly Fall River and maybe a small part of Dodge County, if you seek liberalization, come here to this dump, Mr. Jensen, open this barrel, Mr. Jensen, tear down those walls!
That's right ladies and germs, the day is finally here, the day the aluminum can has been waiting for all it's life, when finally it can frolic with the glass and plastic and cardboard as one.

Effective January 1, 2010 - The City of Columbus will be switching to a single stream recycling program. This means all recyclables should be co-mingled into one container. City of Columbus residents will no longer need to separate plastic, aluminum, glass, cardboard, or paper. The container should be either a recyclable clear bag or a container of 35 gallons or less. Badger Disposal will be picking up the co-mingled recyclables on the same day as garbage is picked up. Please remember that recyclable waste cannot be mixed with regular garbage. If you have any questions, please call Badger Disposal at (920)623-4766 or the Department of Public Works at (920)623-5908.
I've been forgetting to talk about the Survivor All-Star cast. I've know the cast for like a month and it's been "out there" since November.
Anyway it's Hero's vs. Villains and it is an OUTSTANDING group of people.
And oddly here is a very good analysis from a very very gay site (no really, I did not understand why the advertisement photos on this site were so . . . . . . ummmm . . . well . . . .the site is called homo-razzi (which I JUST now noticed - YIKES, that explains so much!).
What an interesting group. This tribe is all about the men. You’ve definitely got more male bravado than you can shake a stick at. Tom, Colby, J.T., James and Rupert all dominated in the physical challenges. They all like to be providers. And, they’re all insanely competitive. The girls on this tribe could have it easy when it comes to having a bunch of butch hunter/gatherers providing food. Amanda, Stephenie and Candice will be able to hold their own in challenges and hopefully fend off a power play from the boys. Because you know those guys won’t take well to an emotionally needy play like Sugar or a smart social player like Cirie. I’m worried for Cirie. Her reputation as a brilliant strategist could put her in early trouble among a group of physical dynamos.
It will be interesting to see how long guys like Tom, Colby and J.T. can work together… if at all. Throw Stephenie in the mix and there could be trouble. They all played alpha male/female before, but there can only be one alpha.
Where to start with this group? Holy shit! First of all, what the hell is Sandra doing on the Villains tribe? Is it because she beat America’s Sweetheart Rupert in Pearl Islands? With all the massive characters in this tribe she could once again take the under the radar strategy all the way to the title! Then there are Jerry, Randy and Courtney… three of the bitchiest and grumpiest people ever to play the game. How will they get along with each other or anyone else! How will Boston Rob, Parvati and Russell view each other? All three have shown they can be in complete control of the game and their alliances. Danielle is a total wild card in this. She would be smart to stick to Sandra and lay low. Two people that won’t lay low are Coach and Tyson. Both of them are crazy and both of them make a natural alliance. Those two things could make them early targets for smart players like Russell, Rob, Parvati and Sandra.
So far, I’m giving the competitive physical challenge edge to the Heroes. But the social scheming smarts of the Villains could prove unstoppable if they get numbers at the merge.
Remember to stretch before shoveling.
