Three Things

  1. I didn’t sleep well last night. Part of the reason was the six pound black cat curled up between my shoulder and my chin, purring her little head off, and emitting tiny, stinky cat farts….
  2. I, and many others like me, don’t resent those who earn more than we do. We aspire to earn that much or more! And we work for it. For example, my husband and I earned degrees to help us earn more. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business and he has a Bachelor’s degree in IT and a Master’s in IT Management with a Security concentration.
  3. Do Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and the democrats in Congress realize that with their increasing taxes on “the rich” and spending huge amounts that they will end up becoming a sub-prime loan recipient? And that we, the taxpaying lenders, won’t be getting a “bailout” this time? And why $250K? I think that’s far too low. Many families making that in Manhattan or San Francisco are solidly middle class, not rich, because of the cost of living.

Standard Time

Is NOT this weekend. The last Sunday in October used to be the date to come off Daylight Saving Time, but it’s been changed. For this year, and future years, Daylight Saving Time ends on the first Sunday in November.

Around here some towns have Trick or Treating for Halloween this Sunday from 1-5. Others have it on Halloween day itself. With the change in the end of Daylight Saving Time to the first Sunday in November, there’s just a little more light in the early evening for the children to go trick or treating.

Daylight Saving Time will start up again on the 8th of March, the second Sunday in March.
