Mornin’, Wheelizens!

Yesterday’s improved weather was very nice; it’s currently 20º warmer than it was 24 hours ago and the next ten days are looking decent.

Didn’t watch that jerk’s farewell speech last night; I’ll skim the lowlights later.

Was informed late yesterday PST that a large bid I thought I had until Friday to deliver needs to be sent by tomorrow. (Normally, I’d have had it done already but the weather has kept me hopping, so I need to knuckle-down.)

Oh well…it’ll be worth it if we get the job. 😉

*poo-t*

Hi Fatwa and good morning, GN!

Shocker: it’s raining again.

With all this rain, it’s a good thing California has been building new reservoirs and improving its water delivery infrastructure. Oh, wait…that must have been some other state.

Hai, Sven!

California’s utter failure to improve the way they collect and transport water is preposterous. Read last week about a desalination plant project not too far down the coast from L.A. that’s hung-up because the rat-bastards at the Coastal Commission -- and others -- are concerned about freaking plankton.

You read that right: plankton.

Happy Not-Drinking-Decaf Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

Decaf? Why even bother?

Water collection and transport infrastructure? Heck no! That’ll only encourage more environmentally unsound practices, like building homes and roads.

In other Jerry Brown news, his proposed budget, which has been labeled “austere” by the press, is 5% larger than last year’s and features a $1.6 billion deficit. No word yet on how he plans to close that deficit to meet the constitutional requirement of a balanced budget.

Gotta save money for those government pensions -- that’s important!

Hai, Mac and Paddy!

It’s fine thing that neither of you -- nor Sven -- are inclined toward sarcasm in any way. 😉

Philadelphia’s new tax on sugary (including artificially sweetened) beverages at the wholesale level is being passed on to customers. The mayor -- who championed this foolishness -- is outraged and accuses retailers of “gouging” customers.

For instance, a 5-gallon container of syrup which sells for $60.00 now has $57.60 in taxes levied upon it. Apparently, the mayor thought everyone in the supply chain would simply suck that up.

Buwahahahaha!

Yes indeed. Coding is the way to go.

I learned coding at a young age. It didn’t seem to help.

One of our neighbors just stopped by to invite us to a Good-bye Barack party next week. Should be a hoot.

The mystery of Obama’s missing daughter is solved: she had to miss his final speech last night cuz she had a test today. Yes, that sounds entirely plausible to me.
