Random Randomness

I would assume the oil spill is still spillin'. Right? Well, if it is then the Southern coast is well and truly fucked. "Cause that means the oil company has not come up with a plan and the .gov still has no clue, as if it was really any of their business. Unless you have lost your livelihood due to this accident or are in line for a job or in line to provide supplies or services then you really need to pay attention to more of what the government is doing and maybe even use some of the non-tv -viewing time to review your various lists or do an inventory of your supplies or even, say, here's a real neat idea, read a book. Ya know they still print 'em? Read a history of government and see how they all eventually fail when the leaders get visions of grandeur in their heads. You can even read something about how to can food or raise a garden or fix a gun. It's amazing what you can find in an old fashioned book.

We are still working on the second house but we have finally depleted my "retirement" savings. We are now to the point where it nickle and dimes you to death. We have a whole list of things that we want to do as opposed to things we need to do. We have most of the need to to do's done or nearly done. Here is a list of some want to do things:

  • apply security film to the lower window
  • install wrought iron "storm" doors
  • remove the two sliding doors and install regular entry doors in their place
  • replace the fence with heavy duty chain link or even wrought iron

There are a couple of other things we want to do but I'll not be discussing those.

With all the thoughts of wrought iron this and that it brings up a sore point with me. I see ads, quite frequently advertising "rot" iron for sale. What really puts the icing on the cake is when they have "rot" iron for "sell". Crap! Did any of the folks retain any of their, say grade 1-12 education? That one really gets me. For sell. Not TO sell but FOR sell. Maybe those folks could read a book to improve their grammar.
