Many Thousands attend Jimmy the Stick XXII

In what some are calling the biggest ceremony in the history of America and with some estimates estimating into the nigh many thousands Jimmy the Stick Year 22 went without a hitch.

Luckily officials were able to find Jimmy hiding under a teal 200g Big Kahuna flying disc.  For any longtime readers you might notice Jimmy showing a little age. After all he was found, abandoned, on the ground 22 years ago.  He was stuck in a trunk on a vacation to Las Vegas and almost held by airman from the Natl Guard after 911.  I will have to write a book about the many adventures from kidnapping to being buried by a blizzard for weeks.

Many thousands look on at Jimmy

Anyway Jimmy saw his or her shadow (I don't want to insult any gender) so we get 6 more weeks of winter.  If Jimmy had not seen his shadow we would have only had 6 more weeks of winter.  

AS for the next 10 days - 2 days of sun, snow showers Saturday, messiness Tuesday and basically up and down winter like temps - nothing important to worry about.   

 It was February 4th 1841 when the first written words about the groundhog were written.

" Last Tuesday, the 2nd, was Candlemas day, the day on which, according to the Germans, the Groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate."

This is the plane the above airman flew - they were about to go on a mission looking for a grave over Nebraska. You can't really see it but I was told the camera under the nose could see my camera from 20,000 feet . . at night.  I was also told not to go near it  LOL. 


8.8 million people in 39 states signed up for Obamacare last year.  100,000 more then the previous year. 


Apple is being sued for $19 BILLION for not paying taxes in Ireland . . or something about illegal tax benefits.  They should move to the US where it's easier now to commit fraud. 


Clinton could have won the popular vote by 5 million and still lost.  Maybe the Republicans will change that? 


Speaking of baseball (Pitchers and catchers report on the 15th?).  The St. Louis Cardinals were fined $2 million and their top two draft picks for hacking into the Houston Astro database.  I have to ask . . why Houston? 


Get THIS totally stupid new law on the Trump books.  For every new regulation, two old ones have to be scrubbed.  Seriously.  Is that anal and useless or what! Good Lord. 


Gregg Phillips - Trumps voter fraud expert.  Is registered in three states and owes America over $100,000 in uncollected taxes.  Republicans see no problem with this.
