Floating Downstream

Wow. Been quite a while since I've been here. Tried a couple of times but that's as far as it got. Now the new year is closing in on me and a few billion other folks and it's time to put up a final word or two before it arrives. Made it through Christmas, but only by the skin of my teeth. If the kids hadn't come down it'd been even closer than that. I'm hoping things will start looking brighter soon.

I mentioned the new year. Do I want to make any resolutions? If there was the slightest chance even one of them might survive I'd do it. But... Yeah. All good intentions but no follow through marks the trail behind me. The only solace is that I'm not too different from most folks in that respect. Not that that makes failure any more palatable. Looks like a double edged sword here. If I don't make any resolutions then I'm a loser, but if I do and then don't follow them then I'm a loser that way as well. Hmm. I smell a rat so…

Ignorance, Bliss, and Perfection

Ah. A new post at last. December has happened already. This year has glided right passed me. Swoosh. Now Christmas is just right there on the calendar. Only have one more idea to come up with and the gift thing will be done. Not necessarily purchased, but at least planned.

Buying for adults is tough. Mostly because the ones on my list either have it, don't want it, or it costs too much. Leaves out a bunch of stuff the retailors would want to sell. Not sure, but something tells me the bulk of their sales go to the under, say, 18 crowd. Or to the adults that are still living in that mind set. Sad, sort of. Especially if a major section of the population is 60ish.

Missed seeing Obama deliver his speech last night, but not the discussion afterwards. Turned it off after a few minutes. The question of can he sell it to the people seems silly. He just did what he's paid to do and that is make a decision. What's to sell? It's a done deal. Right, wrong or some…
