Chilly today--woke to mid-to-high 40s.  We don't expect those temps to warm up past the 50s.  They say we should dry out a bit.  Nothing planned for the gardens until the sweet potatoes come.  I have a couple of herbs that need clipping a bit.  I haven't yet walked through to see if anything had trouble with the low temps.  The one lemon verbena and the mandevilla are most likely to suffer from the cool temperatures.  We'll see.

I haven't had much to say about what I find on the news sites.  It seems like the same old crap repeated endlessly.  Let's see what I find today.

Well, well--the U.N. has noticed that the increasingly precarious nature of employment is a global problem.  Isn't globalization wonderful?  I wonder how many leaders in how many countries thought our more frequent and longer term unemployment followed by increasingly poorly paid temporary or part time work would not come home on them.  What goes around comes around--or so they say.

Another interesting trend--elderly jewel thieves and bank robbers.  The article claims the U.S. has, so for, escaped the trend.  Not for long if those gold-plated idiots get around to "reforming" Social Security.

Kunstler takes the New York Times to task for a recent editorial idiocy.

Are you feeling safe yet??
