But while I agree with you, this belongs in the political forum. BTW I did not vote for the man, but will support him now that he is president. IMHO I think there is no way he can mess up our country worse than Dubba did.

Except for groceries I haven't been away from the space heat in a while. I expect my electric bill to be close to $ 150 this month. I have seen every Movie on every channel and have the cleanest house in history. We have one more night of low 30's and I am afraid I don't own enough long underwear to put on a clean set. So I will just be a stinky old guy. I have a cold that has dropped to my chest and I am taking all kinds of medicine for it. I think it is about time to retire and move south to the really warm weather.

I just thought I'd balance things out. The best quote I heard was from England, "Good riddance to old rubbish."

But hey, do you think that lawn will come back in the spring?

No slow dog

I think the lawn has been let go too long and it will take many years of reseeding and extra fertilizer not say a lot of thatching to get rid of the dead wood that sucks up all the nutrients. While we might have a new landscaper he still uses the same old crew and supplier have moved out of town.

I did not intended it as a Permanent nickname. I only was trying to make a point about the Ice Cream the American voter was sold. It takes the Cream of the crop and lots of Ice to churn Ice Cream and it does happen over night.
