I started laughing and this woke DJ up and we watched what was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. We have watched it 2 times now and it's actually funnier the 2nd time as there are jokes inside jokes.
The movie us DUE DATE. Check it out!
I hope everybody was Tebowing last night after Jesus, once again, guided the worst quarterback in the NFL to yet another miracle victory. Was this the 5th miracle comeback of the year since he was installed as quarterback? I mean come on, they start this guy because after looking around they could not fine ANYBODY else.
Last night game was the shortest Overtime game in NFL history. It was also the 1st game in NFL history to not have one kickoff return.
Next week the Packers play the Giants in Green Bay Sunday. Temps should be in the lower to mid 20s and the Packers are 9 point favorites.
Speaking of weather. So far this January the average high is 38.6 with the average low 20.4. Obviously a tad high for this time of year.
In December we were 8.4 degrees above the average high and 7.2 degrees above the average low. The winter of 11-12 continues to be . . . awesome. 4.4 inches of snow so far. The record lowest amount of snow was 4.1 inches in 1901-02. The second lowest was 12.7 inches in 1967-68.
We should have 3 more days of near record weather, then cooling down for a few days Thursday and Friday then back into the 30s. No real snow is expected.
So where is the cold air anyway and why are we having this weather. It's because of a Positive Arctic Oscillation a yamaka of cold air on top of the world. It sort of slides around and this year we have been lucky.
The cold air is in Alaska at the moment, Canada is very warm so at the moment there is no REAL cold air mass headed our way. Looking around the world for temperature variants . . .
Mexico is colder then normal and China is FREAKING cold along with Australia and the entire South American Continent . So you know when someone is having warm weather someone else has to be getting the cold. This is going to be really interesting how the rest of the winter goes. Will there be payback? A cold spring??
Hydro Street Brewery continues to do very well and I'm surprised that the food area is not as I had expected. I was expecting your normal grill food but Sandye is putting together some real real good menu selections everyday. Check out the Sunday Brunch Menu.
I got an email Sunday morning saying "Rod, we ran out of everything last night". Well, that is not a BAD thing but it is a learning experience. They were not expecting to serve 79 dinners and most are repeat customers. They had to get more half barrels of local brew as their beer is still a few weeks away.
GRAND OPENING for Hydro Street Brewery is Saturday February 4th with the 1st Mug Club event January 28th.
I have no idea what to say about the arrests of former Walker employees.
Embezzlement of money donated to help relatives of veterans the families of disabled or killed veterans . . wow . . .that just seems wrong to me but perhaps I'm just a tree hugging liberal. And then the "innocent" dude who was just doing his own thing and not part of the big investigation when . . .looky here what we found on his computer . . now he is charged with child enticement.
The USA Today had two big pro-Walker articles about how his getting rid of all Unions is not a bad thing but come on. The recall is not a one issue thing. It's many many many corrupt things.
He misled voters about his true agenda and intentions.
He gutted Wisconsin’s public education system.
He's intent on destroying decades of environmental protections.
He is is dismantling the health care system for women, seniors, children and poor working families.
He's intentionally created a chaotic environment of political rewards and punishments that subverts the democratic process.
He is systematically disenfranchising whole demographic groups, suppressing the voice and votes of seniors, poor, students, laborers.
He's part of a national, radical, reactionary group of people (Rove, Koch brothers, Heritage Foundation) intent on remaking America into a survival of the fittest, big business dominated, extreme-wealth protecting nation at all costs.
I'm not against all Republicans. I do not really care normally but talk about tearing a state in half!
DON'T GET ME STARTED!!
