1. Approaching 7 hours into 2013 and, so far, OBoBo hasn`t told a lie…….
2. DougM`s head cold: For some reason I do not get a cold. My lifelong average is about one cold every 10-15 yrs; give or take. When those rare colds arrive, I naturally have no tolerance built up. Sooooo, I developed my own *remedy*, which I will pass on to good Porch buddy Doug (…and any readers on this thread…)
It is simple and has proven to be 100% effective for this child. As soon as I detect a cold (..like when waking up in a morning…) I go to the kitchen and select an ice tea glass. I fill it up with Evan Williams Kaintuck Sour Mash, 1783 (,,,also works w Wild Turkey…). I drink the contents to the last drop.
Two results from this *cure*, both positive!!!!!
1. It creates such a “hostile environment” that the critters pack their trash and bug out asa/fuckin/p !
2. If they don`t——– I. DON`T, GIVE. A. SHIT!
Has always worked for me. (…however there is a caution; in my case I limit my use of all transportation, except for an aircraft!…your`s may vary…)

Refused to watch any MSM airheads and coifs commenting on people jostling or ‘entertaining’. Instead, watched George Burns and Gracie Allen Show. Laughed a lot. Watched digital clock go to 12:00. Kissed wife, wished her Happy New Year, went to bed.

Went to Mass (Latin Mass, I mean), had a great lunch avec mum, sis and younger niece, now I’m soaking into classical music – Mozart, Haendel and so on.
Habby Dew Year for y’all!!! (no, I haven’t got a cold.)
It snowed here outside of Portland this early AM. Just about an inch. First this year. Possibly the last, but seeing as I already own a mounted pair of studded snow tires, I may have to go to Les Schwabs tomorrow and have them affixed. It’s free. One of the nicer things about Les Schwabs.
Well, someone plugged up a toilet and won’t confess. I noticed it after midnight last night, grabbed the plunger and went to town on it – no success. Gave up in disgust, told everyone not to use that bathroom, and gave it priority on the “to do” list this morning. I did manage to splash a bunch of toilet water on myself before I again gave up. Husband promptly went and got it unstuck. I have NO idea how he did that, since there’s only so many ways you can use a goddamn plunger, but as long as it’s working … and as long as it’s not some sort of foreshadowing ominous toilet oracle …
Welcome (?) 2013. So long 2012: Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
I went for my annual, 1st of January regardless-of-the-weather motorcycle ride. 55 degrees, 60% chance of rain. Encountered some misting rain toward the end of my ride. Not a bad ride, bundled up as I was under my riding suit.
Oh, and the cats want fed/attention/played with/etc.

Christmas is packed up and put away ’till next year. The Mr. knows where everything is— never know what the year will bring. I think of that every year whilst I put it away. Ya know I might not even be here next year. Anyhoo my nose is tired from wiggling it and my eyes from blinking there was a lot to do so it takes much wiggling and blinking. It’s tough being magic. It’s freezing cold out but the sun is shining. It’s a football kind a day gotta watch Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. NO MORE cliff diving. NO NO NO!!! Never want to hear those words again.

Forget the plunger. Get a closet auger. Should be less than $10 bucks at your local hardware store. Fast, easy and it would take a solid concrete crap to defeat it. Even then it should handle it.
