Thank you all for your kind words.
Right now, the tears are flowing, but I know this is the cycle. Birth and death….. it’s what we will all experience.
My friend left this world, with much love from so many people.
If we can accomplish that in our lifetimes, then we did good.
I will see you all later.
Later TG, take care.

High Times In The U.S.?
by The Stream Team
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera America.
Monday, January 6 at 7:30pm EST:
High times? As Colorado legalizes recreational marijuana use, the practice is illegal in Utah, which is right across the border. Nationwide, half a million people are in jail for drug offenses, many serving long prison terms due to mandatory minimum sentencing. From harsh laws to little or no penalties, states vary dramatically in punishment. So, do current policies match up with shifting attitudes towards drugs?

Pot needs to come off Schedule 1 and possession-related crimes expunged….8-)
Regarding the current weather forecast: The predicted temps seemed normal to me. Listed below are the temps I remember from living in upstate NY. I left for Florida in 1990, so I have no idea what the temps have been like up North, until I moved to Milwaukee last year. With all this hyperbole in the news I guess it’s been comparatively warm up here the last 20 years.
In Dec 1978 I had just graduated with my four year degree and my first big job was working at the mall, which was an hour walk for me through ice and snow. Here are some of the daily temps at that time.

By Jan ‘82 I had worked myself up to making much better money waiting on tables and I had a car. However, I had to be at work at 6AM which required leaving at 5:30AM in the dark. Usually the plow had come by in the night depositing about 2ft of hard packed snow at the bottom of the driveway, which required me to shovel first. (Unless of course I tried to gun it which often resulted in my car hung up with wheels spinning.)

*All data recorded by NOA at Syracuse Hancock airport. These are straight up temps in Fahrenheit with no wind chill factor taken into account.
The above temps were high and lows for each day of the month (seen in the left column.)
Now if you will excuse me I will be taking a nice hot bath in my 90 degree bathroom and then bundling up to go out in the 30 degree temps outside right now. Yeah, that’s right 30 degrees. It’s not going to get cold until tonight people. Sheeeeeesh.
Hello— went out—- it was cold—– it was icy—- I hate winter.
But then you hate everything.
That sounds about right—- I HATE when you are right.
The opposite of hating everything would be liking everything which would mean that at best one was insincere and at worst indiscreet.
Hello-going out-it is cold-and icy-I hate winter
What the front door kind of leadership is that? Pour yourself another Prestone on the rocks, m’lord. Everybody’s got shrinkage, headlights on high beams and nary a nookie cookie to be had anywhere, unless Fi has her husband and Angus tied up for some sadistic, heat-producing Santorumesque indoor games to stay warm. Nobody’s screwin’ and no one’s out looking for Mr. Goodbar. Try something new: get hammered and watch color tee-vee until something still breathing gets within range and go caveman, Ace.
What is this, a bunch of HuffPast sissies? You’re the MAN, Jack. Man up or shut up. At least make up a story for our vicarious benefit. Sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll, Skipper.
Pedal to the metal, drink up, throw stuff around and take off that ridiculous f-cking hat. I, personally, am counting on you to pull us all through. Do we look like the freaking Donner Party?
I think you need more caffeine.

You do not know how much. You think she would make me a sammich once in a while but who needs vegetarian crap?!
Oh, I know, alright….8-)
Smart lady, she knows how to stay warm 😀
Yes! I have met my biological purpose in life to be a human electric blanket 😛
Two naked bodies under the cover can stay very warm.
Is that your choice during rubdowns ?

HP has dropped from 9th to 13th. They’re now behind Yelp. And something called “Hidden Profile.” https://www.quantcast.com/top-sites/US/1/
and well deserved too.
Pretty will be behind the realm— I think we are ranked among the 800,000 most visited sites. 🙂
They can be they can be number 800,001
Seriously though, you’re really not planning anything ? How bout if we all chip in and contribute something for the posterity of the site ?
Like Major has done with the banners.
Everyone has to start somewhere. You have gained a lot of new members since April 2010. Do you have any plans for your upcoming fourth anniversary ?
You should get a Viking vessel and burn it on the river.
What river ?
hell let’s make it the Nile.
~ sigh ~
Well now you’re just being silly
Well, LQQK whose back as his old avi….8-)
my personal favorite 😀
The one downtown, wave..below the Fonzie statue….8-)
Ok now we’re talking. I was thinking he was gonna say the Hudson, or maybe Saint Lawrence.
Don’t tell him about the Lakes..shhh!..LOL….8-)
Now that would be really convenient for me since I’m only a few blocks east of Michigan.
Yup..you could light one up on a real wave, wave.. 🙄 ..Oh, I kill myself….8-)
My kinda humor. I inherited it from my father. I used to say, Oh Dad, you’re a riot. And he would say, if I’m a riot, then call the police.
That was my mom….8-)
The River Styx. But that’s Greek mythology. Vikings would have slaughtered the Greeks for their treasures just like they chased the fat monks in England.
“The Styx is a river in Greek mythology that formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld ..” ~ wiki
Thanks Liz even more impossible for me to get to than the Nile. I think I’ll stick with the one in Milwaukee or maybe Lake Michigan.
Have you guys seen Bebe today?
I just posted a new page sorry. you can be post what you just wrote here.

California Researchers Find Drastically Low Snowpack, Spelling Danger For 2014 Water Supplies
Snow surveyors went into the Sierra Nevada mountains on California’s northeastern border on Friday to take their first measurement of the season. They found snowpack at one-fifth of normal for this time of year.
Governor Jerry Brown also created an Interagency Task Force last month in which agency heads meet regularly to review the water situation and advise the governor on if he should declare a statewide drought emergency. While state emergencies are usually employed for safety issues, in 2008 Governor Schwarzenegger issued a statewide drought emergency.
Yet there are those who still deny global warming. I hate the term climate change because he was dreamed up by George W Bush spin Dr. Frank Luntz.
Okay then, I guess no one is here today.
See you some other time!
Stay warm and happy!!! ￼:P
Look up, we just drift in and out. hope to see you again.
This blows, said Ahab. Jack’s married and he’s grumpy? Snowed in with enough booze to take out Rommel’s Afrika Korps (Ger.) and a W O M A N? How am I supposed to keep morale up in my platoon when the head cheese is whining and sobbing? We don’t have no broads out here.
C’mon, Jack. For the troops. Here’s to honor. Get on her and stay on her.
You do realize some of us here are women, right?
