Still grumbling about last night...salad $10, Potato $10 ...mummmmmblegrumble.

SE...make sure you can open your door so snow does not block you in. We have a sliding door so if it gets so bad we can get out the slider.

SE, sorry to hear about your snow.

Enjoy clearing it now before another blast comes through on Tuesday.

Isn't this global warming so much fun?

What is really fun is that liberals continue to hang onto it. And keep blathering about it.

And NObama wants to take more power to prevent it!

"Seven inches of snow overnight and still falling. Not a plow in sight."

Another inch since 8:15, and the plow just came by. Pushed all that "street snow" onto my drive entrance. I need a couple of "real dogs" to pull my car through that bank of snow.

Went out to dinner tonight with friends; when did prime rib start costing close to $30? and then you pay for everything else also...ie salad. Time for Taco to cook tacos on the grill.

Can you tell I live in Minnesota...?

JD --- no wise person lives where its that cold. Forget the old apples and move to a decent place to live. However I do have to admit today its not very nice out here either. Its actually raining fer criminy sakes. We have had something like 0.28 inches of rain in the last 24 hours - its a deluge I tell ya. I checked this morning and we have had something like 2.9 inches since the start of the water year - Oct 1st.

This wet cold clammy feeling - do you eastern folks have to put up with this uglyness all the time? I tell ya my official desert rat scales are getting all soft and skushy - - bleeeeeeeeech and blaaaaaa...

As far as a real dog - when she jumps up in bed in the morning to wake me up with vigorous and or excessive tongue licking she is plenty big enough. Besides reading the morning papers with a Husky in your lap might be a little tough.

"Get a real dog."

.....

If you're going to keep a dog around here it had better be kept indoors or be big and bad enough to stand their own against the horde of coyotes virtually everywhere...very common to see either on the property or on the way to town some 22 miles away.

Good morning Café Lurkers! Another beautiful 57° AZ morning and getting up to around 80° today...sure glad we left the frigid cold back home for the winter as these old bones sure do feel good kicking around in the AZ desert!

Have a great weekend LG

Sitting eating instant oatmeal and coffee...

Was tempted to go to next stop on bus and pickup breakfast but going to Dr. for annual checkup and blood work (and refill of prescription, which was only reason I would go for the exam).... tomorrow morning and I figured I'll wait until next week... :-).Going to be tough... my early appointment time was not available..

I agree as well Maria and do occasionally read her posts as I find her take on things interesting albeit I don't think the feeling is mutual...
Good Morning from a still rather chilly 47° AZ morning...but should get into the mid 70's today!

Saddened to9 see our visit with Son Chip and Daughter-in-law Meagan come to an end as they headed back to9 St Louis this morning after being here the past four days.

Son Chip managed to harvest two javelina at the north end of the property near the road so getting them back to the homestead was as easy as tossing them on the back of the ATV for the short ride back to the homestead!

Have a gread weekend coming up and stay warm...LG

"heard the voting turnout was 33% in Mayoral election."

Chicago will have its first mayoral "run off" despite visits and hugs for Rahm by "high ranking" politicians, AND Rahm having outspent all his competitors combined. Perhaps Rahm forgot to remind the "dead" of their obligation to vote.

Oh, got a couple inches of snow.... seems like 5" but probably more like 2 - 3"...Enough to rev up snow blower to make a path and clear behind garage and my small patch of alley...

good to be able to post and see my comments - after a brief layoff, and I didn't have to go to Facebook or Twitter (and I never would like some folks do) to get reinstated. y'all can't believe some of the things some w-h's do for attention. I just had to tell the truth and show evidence. And thank you to those of you who helped with all this bs stuff. I won't name ya, so the w-h's won't go after you.

wind chill is -24 this morning with 18 mph winds - it's colder than a witch-hunter's soul out there, just in from going out at 0400 hours - stint of blowing snow, our long lane and 2 business locations, wasn't too bad as the snow was light and fluffy, gonna drift all day today. Didn't do any of our neighbor's driveways, maybe later after a Dr. Oz breakfast sandwich and some green tea. My wife - of all the Oz things she watches and tries to test on me, I have to admit, I do like the Oz breakfast sandwich.

God's blessings and be careful out there on the street, lotsa evils out there, bring it home safe.

The liberal cabal has tried mightily to silence you and kill you off.

But for now, justice seems to have prevailed.

ALL of us are tired of your hate, bigotry, racism and thuggery.

TheTower, didn't see any official voter turnout numbers but heard it was low... the record was 33% and predictions were 32 - 34%.Will see how the runoff works... a few other races will be occurring for aldermen (and women)...

read one person say " voters don't like Rahm, but they don't like the other guys either"...probably accurate...

As for JDhelm... i can see him... what are you talking about?

yrs ago many conservatives disappeared in short time. Their only chance was to come back as a new avatar....believe me there are at least four libs here with other avatars, those are the ones I know...but, probably many folks have many avatars for fun. I guess lying is satire now so that works.

It should be consistent and maybe it is...but, none of us know, because many never get told why they go into limbo or are out right banned. No communication. Which they own the sight so they owe us nothing.

You can do the math on those here who do not post gas prices or very few.
