Emily Litella would have said something like, " What's all this I hear about making fun of profit?"
Is an insult or social faux pas murder worthy?
"Sir, I take exception to your farting before my wife!"
"Sorry, I didn't know it was her turn."
People have made fun of me and my beliefs all my life and I hope I have done the same to them. Worst case was a little embarrassment or an occasional, "Oh yeah?!" or even, "I'm sorry."
I had an extensive rant that pretty much goes along with much of what has already been said by so many who can say it better.
I could go on and on and I did, but so many others have done so already and I am not adding anything new, so I want to show you something.
There is some beauty on the drive to work, but I usually can't stop because I don't want to be late. So on a Saturday morning (yesterday, in fact) with the temperature hovering around zero (-17C) I decided to figuratively stop and smell the flowers. Of course the flowers have frozen to death, but there is the stark beauty of the lake shore and the moodiness of the big lake. Click on the pics for a larger version.
The morning light and clouds change constantly.
Here is another "ghost ship" from the previous week. Shipping season ends on the 15th of January and starts up again in about 8 to 10 weeks so if I see any ships in that time they really ARE ghost ships. The lake will have either some or a lot of ice on it by then and the icebreakers will be out to help open things up, especially near the harbors.
