Good Evening all. A snowy week week here, got about 20” and everyone is praying this is the end of it.

A night of detective shows, a mystery, and of course...Jack Benny...a 39 year old whose 120th birthday was this week...

You could make a snowman, Vision! I know you probably want nothing to do with that. :-)

No more snow. I can't get motor vehicles out of the garage with all the snow on top of gravel.

How was the talk?

What's cooking? I did some chuckies and will do pork steaks tomorrow. (extended weekend)

Listening to a voice like Frank's...why did we lose all these beautiful people and get stuck with a gutter trash culture? It's unfair.

“What’s the angle?!” :-)

Yeah, I’ll bet you’d be fine if you never saw snow again!

The talk was fine once he got past a bunch of technical problems with his computer. We lost most of the first hour with the delays. We left after two hours, felt bad to do that, but we had to get home to laundry, the grill (chicken) and all. The guy is on fire, Usama Dakdok, a native of Egypt who was raised Christian. He speaks all over the country against Islam. Here’s his site: http://thestraightway.org/

I'm finishing off the last of my Colgate Shaving Soap. Production ceased not all that long ago, and I found this last box...
