Been kind of a slow week around here. I haven't done this in a while now, but here's a bit of this and some of that...
--I've tried to post twice now this past week, but blogger still won't allow that. Just wanted to share a couple great things from B&P - but not enough to save, upload to my flickr, then post. How does everyone else post pictures they find? Upload? By url? So far I get the impression that it is a glitch with Blogger, but this has been over a week now since it started. Lately when I try to add a pic by url it freezes so all I can do is close the whole Blogger tab/window. I think this is what is called hyperlinking, and I've heard that it can be frowned upon. I never thought my little site would bother anything. I'm showing my lack of computer smarts here, aren't I?
--Another 'Polar Vortex' is upon us. Stock up on bread and toilet paper! *Yawn.* Temperatures will generally be single digits during the day and negative single digits over night, actual F temperatures. Just another day in the life, lately... Many people around me are starting to get a little exasperated with the weather. I've just been calling it the 'dog days of winter.' I don't like it either, but what can you do?
--It has been an exciting/disappointing/laughable year for sports in Wisconsin. Milwaukee Brewers: Braun gets busted for doping and the team nosedives. (On a side note: Work friend and personal good acquaintance Al has passed. Second from the left in the pic here.) Badger Football: Another disappointing end to what started to be a very promising season - and yet another bowl loss - but expectations have been high. Green Bay Packers: Only won the division because the division was terrible. Still, you got to have something to hang your hat on. Milwaukee Bucks: I have no words and they have no game. Badger Basketball: Here we still have hope! They started out 16-0 but have lost their last two games. Hopefully it's a good wake up call. Everyone has fun shooting baskets but everybody has to play a little defense, too. If they can get back to that, they may still go far.
That's enough for now, there are other things I need to do in my short time before bed. PTFO
