Does it have a siren?

Is it just me, or does that thing look like a paddy wagon?

Meanwhile,

the “History Channel” has been going overboard with ‘Aliens’ programs, concurrent with all the Trump coverage on the rest of the cable.

Coincidence? I think not.

What the heck?

Got a bill in the mail today. Not to suggest that bills are an unusual thing, but this one was a bit of a surprise. It's from the company that carried my long distance service, which was discontinued at the same time I cancelled my land line several months ago. That final bill was paid way back then, so I figured I was done with it.

Hmmm. So, I opened the envelope to find a bill for July's service, and the usual envelope in which to send the remittance. The amount of the bill = 14 cents. It's written in three places, just like their regular bills. 14 cents. Am I going to write check for that amount, and then spend four times that amount on a stamp? Hardly. Pay it electronically? No.

Being a crotchety old bat sometimes I found myself somewhat miffed at this annoyance, and determined not to pay the silly thing, I made a splotch on it with a yellow highlighter, on which I penned "Seriously?" Then I circled the dates of "service" and reminded them of the previous termination of service. Tucking the thing inside the helpfully provided pre-addressed envelope, I put that same address in the spot for return address, sealed the envelope and dropped it in the mailbox sans stamp. I figure they'll have to pay the postage to open an envelope with no money inside.

Maybe they'll send another bill, maybe I'll handle it the same way. If nothing else, it could help keep the post office afloat, yeah?

The Case for Print Media

Meanwhile, over in the garden...

It’s increasingly frustrating to watch the pink roses and the white roses monsantoing each other while there’s a huge field of weeds encroaching from just over the fence.

Watch the Corpse Flower Bloom

There's this, and there's the near-constant coverage of Trump. Coincidence? I think not.
