Post weekend update. GO CARDS!!

For all those people literally around the world who read this blog for Columbus news I'll catch you up on the Columbus football season that seems to have started 3 weeks before school started (which is a crime) .

Game #1 "we" beat Ripon 44-7 so "we" are off to a good start.  Then a road trip to Platteville gave us a 44-6 victory.   Game #3 was a tougher on the road win 56-18  and last week we were at home against Wautoma and pulled out a squeaker 64-16.

SO - that is a combined 208 to 47 in the 4 games.  Next up the Poynette (3-1) Puma's.  At least they are not ALSO called the Cardinals which it seems 50% of the high schools in Wisconsin are called.

The Columbus Cardinals are ranked 1,636 in the Nation in Football according to MAXPreps (America's Source for High School Sports).

I had my final league golf outing at The Farm Sunday and after a rough start had a three hole streak of birdie, par, par . . . . and then an 8.  A good round overall, no complaints.

If anyone is looking for a relaxed, fun golf league where on Wednesday nights you golf with whomever you want and scores are tabulated later . . . we have openings for next year for ALL golfers as it's a handicap league. Wednesday nights starting 5:00 at Door Creek.  Golfers that have never been in a league do real well as they get better playing as the year progresses.

Our two HUGE Blue Fortune Hummingbird Mint'd continue to attract pollinators and butterflies and hummingbirds.  This is TWO plants, 3 years old and it's is CRAZY with pollinators and butterflies and hummingbirds and smells like those green spearmint's you pop into your mouth.  It got a little beaten down from last weeks rain.




I don't THINK these are the same species. Maybe one is just very old and has seen a lot of battles??


This is just a Viceroy (you can tell by the black band in the bottom wings, Monarchs do not have it).  Viceroys do not fly south at all.  They stay here in the winter by rolling themselves up inside a leaf.

Wells Fargo. Seriously?  The person in charge gets to keep 124 million because she is retiring.  Even after HER division and with 5000+ of HER employees created 20 MILLION fake bank accounts.

Well Fargo is paying back their customers with $184 million coming from the share holders of the back.   WHY would anybody keep their money in that bank.

**********************

Clinton is slowly pulling away from The Donald. Her lead has stayed pretty consistent.  it's a 4% lead which does not sound like much but it's been rock solid.

Meanwhile - Obama's approval rating is now at it's highest since 2009.

For my IT friends.

The ING Bank in Bucharest has afire suppression system which does not use water as water would be very bad for servers.  They have a system that pumps inert gas to snuff out flames.  WELL, seems the gas fires out so fast it creates a little noise to the tune of 130+ decibels . . .which . . .it seems, vibrated and shattered a whole bunch of hard drives.    WHO KNEW!!!

Trumps charitable Foundation which takes money (not his) that is donated and then gives that money to other charitable foundations payed itself $20,000 for a 6 foot tall painting of himself.  Seems lie charity to me!!

*******************

Low 70s for the next 10 days.  Rain Friday and a chance tomorrow

I hate road construction season in Columbus.  Nothing but constant dirt, explosions and dump trucks from The Pit.  Our house (and most on Vista Circle) is constantly dirty from the crap they throw in the air and I swear we have cracks in our foundation from the explosions.  THANK YOU NEW ROADS!!   LOL
