Kwik Trip - UnFail!

I  got an email from The Enforcer of the Mission Statement from Kwik Trip yesterday assuring me that "we will make things right".

What? - Does Kwik Trip have The Machine that knows all and hears all?  Just like "Person of Interest" did my number come up and I must now be dealt with?   If I go to the offending vertically integrated Kwik Trip convenience store will I find an entirely new set of employees?  I'm a little worried now.

Anyway - they asked for my address and I assume I will get a hot dog in the mail sometime in the next few days!


By the time you read this Friday nearly 5000 men have already lost their lives on the Normandy beaches.  Ask yourself . . . Have I earned their sacrifice?  Have I earned the freedom that they were dying for?

On my bucket list is a trip to Normandy, I hope I have earned it but I'm really not sure.

One question that will never be answered is what if the landings would have failed.  Many Americans were not pro invading Europe and instead wanted revenge on Japan. If the invasion failed America would have had a hard time island hopping in the Pacific. Would Dewey actually defeat Roosevelt?   And going further Ike would not have been elected President, would MacArthur be elected?

MacArthur LOVED the idea of nukes, remember he wanted to create a radioactive dead zone in Korea by contaminating the Yulu River. There is a pretty good book called "If the Allies Had Fallen".

Just thoughts.

My father in law was rescued in the sinking of the USS Indy by a PBY which was the exact plane my dad flew.  I think a lot about both heroes on days like this.

My monkey kittens are creating havoc around me.  Iggy is sitting on the beeping part of my weather station and Sofie is watching baby birds in a nest when they are not wrestling.  

I was looking at buying some canned cat food and there are SO many warnings about certain kinds NOT to buy.

Science Diet - If it does not say what animal  the "meat" came from - STAY AWAY! It is totally gross what their "meat" comes from.  It could have been from a previous pet.

IAMS - well, they did kill thousands of cats in 2007  from cat food poising

Eukanuba - this is TOXIC food and very carcinogenic. It's been proven to cause cancer.

Friskies and so forth - well, if you had a child would you feed him a diet of 100% Trix and CoCo Puffs?  this is what that crap is.  And people wonder why they have fat cats?

Spend a few more bucks and get grain free food.  If there is corn on the label, it's garbage.

I watched the first episode of Orphan Black an BBC show.  I rea it's the best show on TV nobody watches and I now believe it.

Starring Tatiana Maslany as several identical women who are revealed to be clones. The series focuses on Sarah Manning, a woman who assumes the identity of one of her clones, Elizabeth Childs, after witnessing Childs' suicide. The series raises issues about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its effect on issues of personal identity
It's really a good show - check it out when you can!

All right - time to do some serious trailer packing!   Have a great weekend - sorry for the boring blog.
