"I was just thinking, if it is really religion with these nudist colonies, they sure must turn atheists in the wintertime." - Will Rogers

We had a snowfall a few days ago, but it melted away within a couple of hours.  Didn't really affect much other than the tomatoes and zucchini plant; they are down for this year.
The flowers are still doing fine, even though it has been freezing every night.  As of yesterday, it hasn't been too bad; these are some pictures I took in my yard.



Wild Geraniums

This morning that all changed.  What is especially bad is that none of the leaves have dropped yet.

I guess winter is here.


The news is all full of an effete boy accused of fathering a child, and a gold-digging bimbo is getting divorced.

WTF, people?  Don't you have anything more important to worry about?


I get quite amused by all these protestors with their Guy Fawkes masks; do any of those people have a clue who he was, other than a mask in the movie Vendetta?  Fawkes committed treason against the British government to replace an Anglican king with a Catholic queen; he really didn't give a shit about the British subjects, their rights, or anything like that.  So why is he treated like an icon of freedom?
It makes about as much sense as all the brainless halfwits who run around with Che Guevara on their t-shirts, and treat him like some kind of freedom fighter.  The man was a ruthless cold-blooded killer, who only cared about people as tools to use in supplanting one type of dictatorship with another.  He helped set up a government that was just as vicious as the one that he and Castro kicked out. 


One of my favorite commentators has passed away.  I always considered him the best of the bunch on 60 Minutes; you're welcome to your opinion, but I found him very entertaining.


A few days ago one of my favorite bloggers left this world.  In between stuff with his job (he was a medical examiner) he had interesting posts on shooting and life in general.   I didn't know him personally in the real world, but enjoyed reading his blog, and will miss him.
For a better look at his personality and character, Breda has a good post.


There must be at least one favorite in this bunch.  Any comments?
