Happy Birthday and Parent Sex - YUCK!

I MISSED it.  Tuesday would have been the best day of the year to walk around wishing everybody happy birthday.  The reason is that September 16th is the day the most people in America have a birthday.

So if you had your birthday last Tuesday you know what your parents were doing on Christmas Eve.  PARENT SEX!!  Can you think of anything more disgusting?  Yea - if your birthday was September 16th you were probably conceived Christmas Eve. 

Of course the least common birthday is February 29th but that doesn't count. So oddly the least common birthday is Christmas and January 1st which seems weird. Like, do woman have the ability to put things off for a day?   

The 13th of EVERY month is the least common day to have a birthday, again, put it off for a day? 


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once again we have the Halloween date controversy.  Fort Atkinson City Council just voted to changed back to having Trick or Treat on the actual day. Lake Mills and Whitewater have recently changed.  

I have a Survey Monkey survey and would love to have people vote.  It will probably wind up 50/50.

Day time parents like because it makes their life simpler and night time makes it magical for children. and we all know it's all about the parents and not the kids. 

Most police departments want it during the day because it's safer (because Columbus is so crime ridden?) .

All I know is that Halloween was one of the most special days of the year when I was a kid and the world is actually safer now then in the 70s according to UCR Crime Statistics.    


I'm not pushing one way or the other (although I think Sunday afternoon's are a horrible thing to do to children). Just curious.

Took a walk down State Street yesterday for lunch. Saw Michael Clark and quickly looked around to make sure we didn't have a quorum.  Lots of construction going on on State.  It stays the same and changes at the same time.

Took a couple photos for giggles!



Gas prices are going to fall dramatically!  Don't get excited though.  Gas will go down 5% in the next few weeks . . . but your gas mileage will drop 10% (I measured this last year on our Honda Fit).  The winter gas will hit your tanks soon.

City News - Safe Routs To School Grant has been canceled.  After having staff work hundreds of hours on forms and more forms and forms to get different forms and getting real close the huge pile off money that was promised to Columbus for the Safe Routs To School Grant. Was killed.  

Basically Walker's State Government decided that since Wisconsin is in such an awesome financial wealth that he fixed, small towns don't deserve free handouts.  It's too bad Columbus spent so much time and money preparing plans and so forth just to have the State Government rip up their contract with us. I guess contracts don't mean anything. 

To cover this short fall the Columbus Recycling Center will start to have a very small yearly fee of perhaps 5 or $10 a year for use but $250,000 for non-residents (all we need is one). 

Room Tax - what is better Purgatory? or Hell?   Our City Attorney said we had gone from one to the other and I'm wondering if we made the wrong move and should be in the one we left.  But then I'm thinking that either one has to do with the Church and should we really be bringing up religious doctrines in a place of government? 

Upon review Purgatory is a place you go right after death while hell is for eternal torment so if we are now in purgatory I'm pretty happy.  Right on!!  Yea Purgatory!!!

BEST BURGER IN COLUMBUS? 

I have no idea - I'm thinking maybe I should try EVERY BURGER IN COLUMBUS and post my findings.  But maybe not the fast food places.
----------------------

If anybody is driving around drive on by Vista Circle today - I'm setting up my canopy and artwork for a glamour photo for art fairs next year.

Art fairs charge you to attend AND charge you to be juried into their fair.  Normal small fairs like Deforest cost $100 + $25 for the jury.  The jury decides if you are good enough to be in their fair (they normally take EVERYBODY).  Larger fairs like Agora in Fitchburg cost $150-$25.

But the bigger fairs like Art Fair On The Square cost $600 +$100 and if you do not make it into a show, you don't get that $100 back.  SO - you need to REALLY make your set-up look good.  They don't want a dude with a card table selling Russian eggs.  So that is my plan for 5 hours today (3 hours to set up 2 hours to tear down)

SO - Cloudy, cool day with not a lot of wind.  Gotta do it today.

Have a great day!
