G’day, GN.

Pearl Harbor Day should live in infamy. While I believe it ultimately changed our world for the better, the cost in American lives and treasure was mighty damned high.

Although I bow to no person in re my loathing of FDR, it’s a damned good thing he didn’t roll over at such a critical juncture.

Thank goodness the Allies prevailed.

BBL.

Good morning, Fatwa -- happy Monday, GN! The power company called to let us know that we have 1-4 hours before it’s back to candles again. I put off prep work yesterday, best get to it now.

Criminy, Sven…what a clusterfark.

Too bad CA didn’t spend some of that money they pissed away on the high-speed train to nowhere to update the electrical grid.

But high speed rail will save the planet, so that got priority. I also think that having reliable electrical power is an example of privilege.

SoCal is officially under a mandatory lockdown as Newsom established a new metric, hospital ICU capacity less than 85%, which most of California reached over the weekend. It will last at least three weeks. Yeah, us.

Our area has been upgraded to “imminent” for power shutoffs. You boys behave. Poof.

Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

I wonder if we’ll ever know the full story of December 7, 1941 -- the delayed messages, etc.?

Sven -- good luck today!

I’ve been reading about more and more businesses that plan on defying Gov. Nuisance’s lock-down order. That can be a really difficult choice for any place that serves alcohol, as the state alcoholic beverage control board can quite easily pull your license -- which is both expensive and difficult to obtain.

Back home again.

Nice day for a drive, anyway. Harper bought a curling iron after her MS treatment.
