G’morning, GN!

Maaaaan…my brain had a difficult time parsing Mac’s thread GIF.

It’s a good thing next year’s RNC convention is scheduled for summer:

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Hopkins International Airport has been slapped with $735,000 in fines for violating an agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration to adequately staff snow removal teams and deice runways ā€“ causing unsafe conditions and forcing planes to divert to other airports.

In four letters sent Monday to Acting Director of Airports Fred Szabo, FAA officials listed dozens of dates when staffing at Hopkins fell far short of requirements, leaving inches of snow and ice uncleared from the taxiways and runways.

More details of stunningly dangerous incompetence at the link.

Morning greetings!
I have nothing to do today! Yay!
Except that I probably need to gas my truck, return almost overdue library books, go get bread & sundries, and maybe go to the dry cleaners. Caro. Now I’m tired. Maybe I’ll just have some coffee and a morning nap instead!
See ya later.

Hai, RabBeet and Sven!

British historian uncovers the oldest written use of the f-word:

Turns out, people were dropping the f-bomb way back in 1310. When British Historian Paul Booth of Keele University was flipping through a court document from the city of Chester, he made an entirely unexpected discovery: An outlaw listed by the name of “Roger Fuckebythenavele.” Believed to be a nickname, this marks the oldest written use of the f-word in the English language.

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBit, Fatwa, and Sven!

According to the weather guessers, we got 1.63″ of rain yesterday -- that’s almost as much as the historical average for September, October, and November, combined.

Fatwa -- I’m shocked that there is incompetence going on in Cleveland!

Me too!
To hear some of the pretentious “influencers” tell it, I’d have thought Kasich had the trains running on time.

Since Sinner’s been gone so long, does he qualify as “The FNG”?

It’s been a while since anyone’s cleaned the loos… šŸ™‚

I hope all has been (at least mostly) well in Schaumberg.

Moving next summer to be closer to actual job.

I left teaching for a job that pays actual US Dollars versus Flintstone Clams.

Congratters! (Although I don’t know how much of an improvement inflated fiat currency is over Clams.)

Sorry you have to move again; hope the new place won’t require too much effort to get it “move-in ready”.

Also hope the family’s well!

Ever try to buy a bottle of Value-rite Vodka with Flintstone clams?

Mrs. Sinner and the Sinlet are doing fine. Sinlet is now 13, so she is embarrassed by having parents, which is, of course, a boon to my emotional outlook because I don’t even have to try to embarrass her. I just show up somewhere and viola, easy peasy.

As to the move plans, I currently have an almost 2 hour each way commute, so I am off for the day.

Yay! Welcome back-good to see you , Sir!
Glad to hear you & the Mrs. are well. And that Sinlet is being a typical teen.

I like clams…and US dollars simmered in white wine, tomatillos and garlic aren’t nearly as tasty.

Watching the debates--Trump aint doing so well. My prediction is that he loses points in the polls and most everyone else gains, especially Fiorina.
