Friday Morning Journal

Sat in the front yard with Suzy enjoying the fine weather and beauty of the morning. Watched a Killdeer incubate her three eggs in the nest across the street. Listened to the crickets and barn swallows vocalizing their enjoyment of the moment. Rescued a honey bee from a very small spider. Observed the blossoms of our wild fennel. As Suzy looked on, escorted a young garter snake off the hot concrete driveway. Wondered if the adult I saw yesterday might be its parent. Then finished the morning an espresso and a little work on my hermit crab in colored pencil. Not a bad morning.

Free Taco Bell Taco?

If Taco Bell wants to give “every” USer in USerland a taco for each World Series stolen base what kind of taco will they give vegetarians and vegans? Since I do not visit fast food franchises will they send my taco to my home? Will it be warm? Since I do not eat such crap can I ask that my free taco be sent to a kitchen that feeds those in need? Come on Taco Bell, make an offer that will benefit someone other than the overfed populous of our overweight country. And… the offer lasts “until supplies last”. Supplies of tacos? Supplies of citizens? If you say “every” that means ALL. Taco Bell sounds like a typical politician. They say one thing but mean something entirely different. Is that a misdirection or a falsehood? I am not voting for Taco Bell.

 

Spoiled USers

Many of today’s papers may have included a story such as this one from the San Francisco Chronicle. Spike in gas prices ignites election-year furor  http://bit.ly/yLbKOE Oh, no! Four dollars or more for a gallon of petrol! Wake up America*! The average price of petrol in Europe is six dollars or more. We complain about the price of gasoline but will spend that much or more for a cup of coffee and then fight over a $220 pair of sneakers. Our priorities suck, no thanks to the encouragement of our political parties, their misinformed constituents and our anatomic disarray. We need to remove our collective head from our collective bum or suffer the consequences. Perhaps we should begin wearing Roman sandals. We are called USers for a reason.

Me Thinks You Protest Not Enough.

Jon Carroll, columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, comments on “The Year of the Protester” and the opportunities/advantages in becoming a protester. Makes sense to me. http://bit.ly/xY0l7k

The Other “United” Way

The better United Way again explained by Jon Carroll. A great way to do good and feel good doing it. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/12/05/DDNK1M7K7H.DTL&sk=d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e
