May 3: Drapery Emergency, Spreadsheet Blorf (with an update)
Durant's Rousseau and Revolution, p. 808
88 recordings of 31 types.
Rasmussen: -11: 48/51. Apparently there are a lot of unpatriotic people (the President's definition. He makes Nixon look like all sweetness and light.)
I was pushing the new shade up this morning and it came off in my hand. I tried to put it back up but it wasn't right. A drapery emergency! I couldn't find the phone # of Brian's drapery. Maybe I'd have to wait till he got the last bracket and called me to install it? Maybe I should call Smith&Noble? But then I couldn't find the order #. Then I went online to find the installation instructions, but I couldn't seem to do it all. The final step was eluding me. Finally, some hours later, I got the right angle to snap the shade into the brackets. Whew!
My challenge caches spreadsheet blorfed again. That's the second time: something's obviously wrong with either the Excel program or my computer, or the way they talk to each other. The Open Office spreadsheet I've been running on travel bugs has been OK, knock on wood, so I started to reconstruct the first challenge cache (days of the year, which won't be finished till August) on it instead. That's a time-consumer! On the way past I found some of the completed challenge caches with more information.
Did the Philadelphia Government Pressure a Teen to get an Abortion? Also, now that I've found out the Komen Foundation gives $$ to Planned Parenthood, I'm not donating any more than I've already promised.
Many many more under the bus.
Now they tell us. Is Brian Williams going to report this? Over and over and over? Along with the oil spill?
I've always been of the opinion that the day Ray Nagin was re-elected, all aid to New Orleans should have stopped. Every penny cut off.
This was a man who almost literally fiddled while his city burned. If it's own residents think New Orleans isn't worth saving, why should the rest of us?

And the response to the BILLIONS in flood damage to Nashville/Middle Tennessee this weekend? Non-existent. He can't demagogue gulf oil and chew nicorette at the same time.
I'mma let ya'll finish, but Barack Obama doesn't care about Southern people (outside of New Orleans or Atlanta).

He's unable to laugh at himself.
Oh, well, says Allahpundit. It's not like California needs the money.
Ha. Laramie (Albany County) is in good shape.
How can we begin to defeat this enemy if we are not even willing to name it?UPDATE: How could I forget? We went to the geocaching event in Fair Oaks, a crowded pizza parlor but they were much better organized than the people from Sunday. Some of our geocaching friends had seen us at the Tax Day Tea Party. Nice! We had a nice chat with a number of folks.
