Tis a dreary FRiday in the frozen tundra....if I’m up you can get up. Yet another dusting of snow this morning. See you in class.

Augury -- the assorted wood dust and chips resulting from use of an auger.

Not to be confused with julury, which is of course the various pieces of gold, silver and gems which adorn necks and wrists and fingers.

If you miss class you'd best come up with a good story....like sleeping in your bed when a sinkhole appears over night and sucks you in never to be seen again.

We finished February with some precipitation on 25 of 28 days. But never more than 3 inches of snow on one day, so not too bad. From a shoveling aspect.

I shoveled a couple of inches of snow that had been rained on and it turned to slush. Very heavy job. I am sick of the snow. It snowed on our fire last night. It’s getting old. Not much to shovel this morning though, probably a broom would do the job. Still, every time I go out it snows. I am sick of it. Not an augury for an early spring.

Will the upcoming Ides of March be an augury for this nation, as in Julius Ceasar’s Rome?

All of the auguries warned of this obvious consequence but this hateful woman still thinks it's a great idea. Unless she filed an exception with her union pals, she's going to be hit hard like the rest of us and I can't think of a more deserving target.

It seems weird to me that even though it is colder than yesterday and flurrying quite a bit, I would rather run outside than hit the treadmill again. Something fun about running while it’s snowing I guess. Mental Floss had some hilarious snowmen on their site yesterday. We won’t get that much.

The Anointed One’s second inaugury
Was loaded with socialist augury
Take stuff from the makers
To give to the takers
When that fails, resort to more perjury

Lots of people hanging on your posts early in the morning, eh?

Guess you better augery them there holes real deep.

(Seriously, if there really were gold in the bottom of the holes that Obama and Biden keep digging us into with their deliberate fiscal policies of failre and debt, I’d be willing to auger the holes myself.

But there’s not even mud down there - just more and more shiittes.

The Lyin’ King plans on entering Jerusalem on the same day (of the Hebrew calendar) as the Historical “Palm Sunday”.
It would be an even more ominous augury if he planned to make the entrance seated upon Michelle’s ample rump.

Not a whit, we defy augury: there’s a special
providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now,
‘tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be
now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the
readiness is all: since no man has aught of what he
leaves, what is’t to leave betimes? —Hamlet

Augury must not be confused with the act of drilling a hole in the ground with one of those twisty things.

Here’s a real winner:

http://triblive.com/news/westmoreland/3573401-74/agosto-justicia-wanted#axzz2MJJyt6KP

A Greensburg man walked into the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department for a concealed weapon permit on Wednesday and left with an escort of deputies.

...

Authorities charged Agosto-Justicia with taking the tires and rims off a 2012 Ford Mustang rented from a Hertz dealership and then putting other wheels and rims on the vehicle before returning it, according to court papers.

It is sunny and 62 here, but it got down to 28 last night-glad I held off on planting my baby salad green seeds till this week-

The augury being practiced
By Obama’s various minions
Are obviously based upon
False or faulty opinions

Despite the “draconian cuts”
That were to be feared by all
School doors are not closing-
Planes have not begun to fall

Life don’t seem much tougher
Than the tough we already had
But that just isn’t saying much-
Things were already pretty bad...

The dollar store had those squishy vinyl balls with tentacles all over and flashing lights inside, for a buck each. I couldn’t resist buying two for the pets-Husky girl tried to carry one away a couple of times, but she spat it out and bared her teeth at it-I don’t think she likes the texture of the tentacles.

Midget girl hid under the plant stand when the lights in it started blinking, Yeti boy only showed mild curiosity, and Titus did a couple of drive-by swat-and-hisses at it, then ran off to play chase with Midget. Not a very interesting toy, apparently-I’m glad they were only a dollar each...

New from Mayor Dumbass:

http://politicker.com/2013/03/mayor-bloomberg-dont-panic-about-the-sequester/

“We are spending money we don’t have,” Mr. Bloomberg explained. “It’s not like your household. In your household, people are saying, ‘Oh, you can’t spend money you don’t have.’ That is true for your household because nobody is going to lend you an infinite amount of money. When it comes to the United States federal government, people do seem willing to lend us an infinite amount of money. … Our debt is so big and so many people own it that it’s preposterous to think that they would stop selling us more. It’s the old story: If you owe the bank $50,000, you got a problem. If you owe the bank $50 million, they got a problem. And that’s a problem for the lenders. They can’t stop lending us more money.”

Thank you!

Only seeds of cool weather stuff like salad greens and broccoli, etc can be sowed now-most other seeds and all flower and veggie plants don’t go in the ground till April-I’ve got my veggie seeds started inside, by the french doors. Last average freeze up here is late March to early April.

I said to my wife last night “a young guy, he got divorced, in trouble for his bodyguards using slush fund credit cards while he is traveling, this is going to get ugly”

Then on the late news I see the FBI subpoened credit card records for a “gentlemen’s club” in McKees Rocks.
