  1. Another week starting with joyful news.

    Guess I’ll go back to preppin’.

  2. more reasons to say that tdl is fubar.

  3. Maybe I should have ignored the alarm clock this morning. Waking up to these news stories and the one a friend sent us on E gore wanting 90 million or was it billion to get rid of cars all over the world.
    Believe I should send that one to MD, so he can add it to the list.

  4. From the Things I Saw This Weekend file:

    White House going nuclear on Netanyahu
    http://nypost.com/2015/01/24/white-house-going-nuclear-on-netanyahu/

    This one really tickled me with bits like:

    Thou shall not cross Dear Leader.

    With their guttersniping failing to stop Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned March speech before Congress, White House aides are unloading their full arsenal of bile.

    “He spat in our face publicly, and that’s no way to behave,” one Obama aide told an Israeli newspaper. “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.”

    And…

    It is pointless to say petty threats do not become the Oval Office. Trying to instruct this White House on manners recalls what Mark Twain said about trying to teach a pig to sing: It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    Still, the fury is telling. It reminds, as if we could forget, that everything is always about Obama.

    Deceased Filmmaker’s Documentary Finally Released – Gray State: The Rise

    It’s a rough cut of the full movie and on youtube in 2 places

  5. I signed up for the prep class, as did a friend. Shall be interesting to see how it goes. Our friend has taken several Coursera classes, and says that the textbooks are generally not needed. He tends to get As, too. So it really is free, nothing to lose, maybe something to learn.

  6. I must admit I do have an iPhone, and have had one since they first came out, but not gone past the 4S.
    I have noticed that after a recent update there was an application that appeared when I started the phone after the update; it stated “Initializing America.”
    When I searched the phone I could not find any application called “America,” so I can only suspect it is hidden / running in the background.
    It’s time for a new phone, and I believe it will be a generic ‘pay-as-you-go’ type like Net-10 or something like that… need to do more research.
