Teh Squeaky Wheel
Thanksgiving Eve Day salutations, GN!
LambiePieK is taking some PTO starting today; we’ll be “enjoying” Day 1 by making Squash of teh Godz to take over to FTR’s tomorrow.
Because I’m a major fan of mocking pompous public figures -- especially those who wish to violate our rights -- I highly approve of this “branded” whoopee cushion:
Hello GN! Good morning, Fatwa. Teh rain has arrived. Excited about my morning commute -- it’s sure to be just @#%$*@ lovely.
G’day, Sven --
You and Mrs. Sven be careful out there, y’hear? 😉
Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa-Teh-Flatulent, and Sven!
Rain is not expected here until later in the morning. I bought new windshield wipers for Mrs. Paddy’s car the other day at Costco. I got up early this morning to install them before she leaves for work and found the drivers’-side wiper had a broken piece. I got the other one installed, but now I have to make a return trip to Costco and Mrs. Paddy will have a bad wiper on the driver’s side.
Bummer the non-broken wiper blade on Mrs. Paddy’s car was the driver’s side; hope your trip to Costco isn’t too much of a PITA.
Because BK and I have driven older vehicles, I was somewhat late in knowing that a lot of, ah, more modern cars have asymmetrical wipers. I don’t think her Yukon does. (A quick search strongly suggests they’re both the same.)
Yeah, I need to replace Mrs Sven’s wiper blades on her jeep too.
I’ve been using rain guard/silicone spray on my windshield for the last several years with good results.
I find this encouraging: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/27/president-trump-china-strategy-death-by-a-thousand-paper-cuts/
“The New York Federal Reserve made a quiet admission two days ago that was missed by almost all financial media. In the NY Fed economic blog they admitted everyone was wrong, President Trump’s 2017 tariffs against China did not lead to increased U.S. consumer prices [Read Here]. The Fed also said imports of the Chinese products affected by U.S. tariffs have fallen by an annualized $75 billion. That’s a huge chunk of business U.S. purchasers have shifted to Japan and other Southeast Asian countries.”
