  • Weather & China: all is not bliss

    Posted on December 11th, 2010 cwmoore No comments

    I read an article, supplied by Tom Eyster a grad student, that states the college graduates in China are facing a struggle just as their fellows are in the USA.  The article is a good one I thought and is worth posting in my blog.  Check it out – this should give pause to all those who believe in open borders.  Imagine what would happen if all those highly [singlepic id=269 w=160 h=120 float=right]educated engineers, scientists and teachers descended upon us en mass.  The employers of the world would love it but the worker bees of USA and Europe would be starving – good bye good life.  There are just too many people on this planet and Darwinian evolution is in play.

    I thought about Facebook but no one really cares as they are more interested in Farmville and chit-chat.  This is OK too and I use FB a lot.  After the mornings email I hit FB right  after the weather.  Speaking of weather, we are supposed to get slammed tonight.  Here is what it looks like right now:[singlepic id=270 w=600 h=110 float=center]

  • Snow storm coming?

    Posted on December 11th, 2010 cwmoore No comments

    [singlepic id=160 w=320 h=240 float=left]I awoke early today.  Checked the email, weather,  FB and read latest items on Huffington Post.  It looks like a winter storm is on its way and proposes to drop 2 – 4″ by tomorrow morning.  I think I better move the 4×4 up the hill for the winter.  I like to drive it much better than the cars in snow and ice.  The price of gasoline was marginally down to $2.959 per gallon last night at Walmart.

    Today is a re-populate the spare bedroom (the ex-computer room).  We moved Mom’s old hospital bed to the guest room by lugging the heavy thing up the stairs.  Now that SAM has completed painting the room and fully cleaning the carpet we are ready to move in the stuff.  I have to wait until the decision is made as to where to put the bed.  Then I can find a place for the modem and router.  The modem may have to go under the bed – it is a black box anyway even though it has led’s – because the coaxial cable is larger diameter and is not too flexible.  The rest of the network items will go wherever they fit after the bed is placed.
