Stone Cold Structure

When you’re an eldest child, and your parents are both eldest children, and all four of their parents are eldest children, and the power goes out for days and days, this is your playtime:

Living a bit north of Cincinnati, I can say that we were very blessed not to lose power. I did get beaned in the head with a pine cone, which HURTS at 40 mph lol.
I am very sorry for your mayonnaise losses.

Plenty of shelf space in there for all the new characters of the upcoming CARS sequels ;-)

Hey... they may have been without power... but at least they could buy gasoline... unlike those of us in middle Tennessee... for reasons that still evade me.

Thanks for the things you said at Blonde Champagne Radio. It is very true, we should try to stop viewing Politics as a religious war. And we should also stop religious war, as a matter of fact!

Things are pretty rough every where. Here in Mexico we've experienced a wave of violence the likes of which hadn't been experienced since the days of the Revolution. There are some people that try to benefit from the dissent, but this is the time when we must behave as one.

Same goes for any nation, I guess.

Things will turn out all right. And the first step is to believe that; otherwise all the problems will overwhelm us, and there's not enough Prozac in the world for 6 billion depressed people curled inside their bedsheets refusing to go to work.

This world deserves that we show up to work.

Well, thanks so much for listening! I understand, though, that the economy of Mexico is getting better-- just as we're going down the toilet. Maybe Americans will be sneaking across the Rio Grand to find jobs in Mexico City...

" Maybe Americans will be sneaking across the Rio Grand to find jobs in Mexico City…"

LOL, that same thing happened on the movie "The Day After Tomorrow". Hopefully it won't get to that; but even if it did, I'm sure you'd find a job here in no time ;-)

Economy in countries like Mexico, Brazil & India is getting better, but only for the 2%-5% of the super rich elite;while the rest of us are just managing to stay afloat :-(
