Winter Wonderland

Well, all that rain turned to snow last night. Here’s the view out the front window, looking west across a mile of woodland to the bay.



The little camera in my phone is not the best, but that new-fangled HDR software makes everything look pretty.

    Otherwise, Happy New Year!

    Henry my friend, archives. When one doesn’t know something, it’ll be in Waka’s archives.

    Happened last New Year’s too. But – since you seem to be “celebrating” pretty much like myself – solve a mystery is a pretty good game.

    Just occurred to me Henry – our governor’s name is also Beebe.

    And since he’s a Democrat, well, I guess we should keep an eye on him too.

    Henry? You awake?

    I must’ve dozed off. Anyway when I woke up I checked FOX News… they said some sort of an agreement had been reached in DC.

    Reckon we’re still doomed?

  7. JK,

    Happy New Year, 2013.

    I think “doomed” is a relative term. There’s “plain-vanilla” doomed; there’s screwed; there’s totally f*cked; etc. I believe one of those relative dooms does apply.

    The Feds have all kinds of “technical” gadgets at their disposal (remember “deemed to have passed”?). They even have the power to turn back the clock (i.e., f*ck with the time-stamp of legislation), thereby to retro-fit bullshit. Recall that, heretofore, only Big Al Einstein had the power to alter clock-time.

    With all this kind of chicanery up their sleeves, not even Big Al could predict just how doomed we are. But remember Big Al’s decree: “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.”

    It’s going to get harder still …
