Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

There has been some backlash from the preemptory comments from Arne Duncan, Secty of Ed. Has there EVER been a more arrogant lot?

You know, if you don’t count September, the Steelers are 4-2.

And Pitt. What can we say? They come back from 24 points down and lose on a punt return for a TD.

The second punt return TD of the day, that is.

I went to get some milk out of the container this morning, and I found it to be preemptory.

after beating ND the previous day. weird.
but even weirder was the Caps rout of the Blues last night. yea, the Blues played the night before and changed time zones to come play here, but they looked like total crap. we will see how Weds night goes. I cannot BELIEVE that the pens lost to the flyers, that is just mindboggling to me.

Well, hockey doesn’t really count in November and the Flyers will always play up to beat the Pens and vice versa.

About the same temps here today - going to hit 80 later this week.

Ugh!

I agree with your desire for seasonal temps!

It would be nice sometimes to have a preemptory veto of Mother Nature’s ideas.

His haughty remarks were preemptory
As Obama tried hard for redemptory
Since his fixes all suck
He tries passing the buck
But his cures, like his promise, are emptory

I will take a peremptory stand and announce that our local high school girls won the state championship in Volleyball. Here they are moments after they won:

Wish I knew how to share the FB video of the local fire departments greeting the team bus as they arrived home. Two local departments met them on the highway with fire trucks complete with red lights and sirens escorting them all the way through town to the high school. Fans stood in the dark, in the rain to wave flags at them as they passed by. Do we have spirit or what?

Just noticed on FB that a young woman who graduated with my daughter will be on MSNBC from 11:30 to noon speaking about her leadership role in organizing today’s protest against common core. She started an on line movement to keep students home from school today to protest. Hope it’s going well for her. If she does well, I was her youth leader in Tioga Trails for Youth. Remember that. LOL

If the past proves a pattern, you will receive massive rain, wind, and falling temps over the next few days.

Around here, this time of year, the top of the work bench in the garage serves as an extra fridge. We call it the “walk in”.

Sounds like a good place to store the Christmas cookies you’ve started baking for Christmas. LOL I used to use the patio for that. Leave a couple of windows open and it was a great freezer. Soda and beer stays cold out there, too.

I had to go to the computer to search out MSNBC on my tv, as I never watch it, didn’t know where it was. OMG, it is AWFUL tv. Not sure I can watch, even to see Janet. She isn’t on till after 11:30, but this is killing me to wait for her to be on.

I gave a dinner party Sat. night for 8 and got ALL the good stuff out for the first time in years. (One of the guests is a State Rep and another is on the local School Board.) But, I used the garage to keep the beer and white wine cold and to keep the salads cold that I had made earlier in the day, as well as the pheasants that my husband had cooked the night before and the wild rice that I prepared that morning.

An hour before the guests arrived, I popped the pheasants into my “Nesco” to bring to serving temperature and put the wild rice into the slow cooker to reheat. I only had to slip the glazed arrots into the microwave, make the rolls, and pour the wine and water while guests were enjoying appetizers and drinks in the living room, and we were all ready to eat.

It would have been easy peasy, except for all of the silver and crystal polishing the week before and all the hand washing afterwards. My husband left to go hunting in Missouri first thing the next morning (after helping me with a lot of the clean up and locking the silver back into the safe in the basement) but I feel like a ton of bricks has fallen on me after putting away everything else. Every muscle aches from the hundreds of trips to and from the kitchen returning the crystal and good dishes to their regular homes.

I just have to iron the napkins we used and figure out how to salvage the table cover which suffered candlewax and berry jam stains. Luckily, the table cover really is a beautiful, elegant, polished cotton, quilted bedspread that I bought very cheap on a super sale a few years back. It has two sides, and the damage did not go all the way through. So, if I can’t get the wax and the berry stains out, I’ll just turn it over and use the other side.

I have more pheasants in the freezer and need to do this all over again before that crystal needs washing again and before the silver tarnishes. I think there is still food out in the garage.

I’m just saying that we’ve had awful rain for nearly 2 days, and it generally moves east. Yesterday was particularly bad. Rain and high winds. Started warm and turned very cold by 6 pm. My husband left later than usual for his annual trophy hunt in MO, and he fought the storm all the way south. He saw 4 overturned semis just off the highway in Illinois. Generally he arrives around noon, but he didn’t get in until almost 7 pm. He’s a speed demon, and he had to drive 40 mph all the way.

I even ordered a special flower arrangement for the party. I took the extra care to take a sample of my dishes (which have little cornflower blue flowers all over to them) and the linens and the candles and the silver centerpiece (where the flowers would eventually go) down to the florist and asked him to design something — any color but with touches of blue to pick up the dishes.

I might have well skipped that trip. The flowers were gorgeous, but by the time we dimmed the chandelier and lit the candles you absolutely could not see the blue flowers (delphinium, I think). They faded to black under candlelight. Luckily the florist had mixed the arrangement with white chrysanthemums and lilies and little green berries, so it still looked beautiful. But I wouldn’t stress him finding blue flowers again. You couldn’t even notice them.

It was a problem finding blue flowers in the first place because I ordered them just a few days after Veteran’s Day, and the flower mart was all sold out of blue.

I have a daughter in NY (near Albany) and a daughter in Richmond, VA. Our storms generally hit one, or the other, a day, or so, after they wreak their havoc here. This one has been particularly nasty and is headed more south, than north. We were lucky in Wisconsin, although we were on tornado watch all day yesterday. We just had a steady, drenching rain which didn’t let up until 7 pm. People in Illinois and Indiana were not so lucky.

It is 58 here, and supposed to be in the low 70’s this afternoon...

For each insurance screw up,
Obama’s peremptory declaration
Has many fearing income lost,
And gasping in consternation

As he runs to the golf course
To relieve the crushing stress
Of lying to just about everyone
And creating a world-class mess

People who gave the Ocare website
Their personal info and their name-
Got sticker shock and didn’t buy
May get billed as part of the game
