Good morning, Everyone. Hope your Holiday was happy. Ours was very pleasant. Christmas Eve we spent with my brother and his family while Christmas Day we visited my sister and hers. Now we are just vegetating. I didn't see anything much to comment on yesterday so took the day off. I did get some stitching done on a table cloth that has languished for the last log while.
I guess I can become MaryContrary again. The idiots give me plenty of opportunity as this piece from Natural News shows. So I guess Dow wants to fight the problem of Round Up resistant weeds by engineering corn that is resistant to the major component of Agent Orange. By the time those boys get done we won't be able to grow corn because our fields will be overgrown with multiple-herbicide-resistant weeds.
Along with all of the Christmas shopping news the media managed to glide over (as in barely mention) the fact that only TWO of the seven remaining Republican candidates managed to qualify for the Virginia primary. Newt Gingrich was not one of the two even though his official residence is Virginia. But none of the commentators made the same conclusion I did: do we really want any of these disorganized bozos as president??? These guys and gal couldn't, to use a rather bawdy comparison, couldn't organize a f**k up in a whorehouse.
This morning, over coffee when both of us found our get-up-and-go gone, I remarked that this week between Christmas and New Year's is like being in a state of suspended animation. Lo, and behold--Ronni Bennett at Time Goes By made the same observation.
