I used to always go into Borders this time of year because they'd have all their calendars 50% off. Not always the calendar I thought I'd get, but I ended up with some interesting choices over the years that were fun.
Yes, and so with Barnes & Noble. Once I had both to shop at, but preferred Borders hands down. I thought the music and video section was better, and like the children books section too when my kids were little and the grand-kids were littler than they are now.

Oh well, what humor and wit I may have is so subtle I don't get it much of the time. And it would be *face-palm* time to witness me arguing with me.

Good Sunday morning, BRG&'ers!

These results from Google coincide with an NPR report I heard this week about the snowpack in the Sierra Nevadas which will not help your drought situation out there; it's only at about 20 percent of the average.

I hope things don't get too bad where you are. Stay warm!
Hegel and Perfessor --

That's what Saturday was down here ... balmy at about 37-38 degrees. Snow from 3 days ago was even sliding off my roof.

Friday afternoon and Saturday noon-ish was for running errands and shopping for the supplies to hunker down until about Wednesday.

Overnight tonight/Monday morning will be low at about -15F and a high temp also below 0. Tuesday high will be 2-4 above.

It's bad. Here in LA it's 0.90 when it should be 3.5.

The worse that is suspected is he is diabetic and the best I can hope for is he has arthritis.. Vet gave me some pain meds for him for now. Thank God his hips are OK. The vet reminded me that the average life expectancy for the German Shepherd is 10 years old. Baron's 5.5 now, so it's expected he's going to have some stiff joints. And it's so cold here.
Bestes for health your buddy Baron!

Darn Topix. I put up two links from Imagebin - a photo of my Christmas tree and cat, and one of Baron in the back seat.
I guess Topix doesn't allow Imagebin anymore.
topix won't take some of the links I use. When that happens if I care enough, I break the links on purpose.

like: xxxhttp ...., or put spaces in the URL.

I figure that interested folk will copy/paste into browser locator box and fix as needed.

Hey all. Came on to see if anyone had heard from the BRGers east of the Mississippi lately and who should I find. Hope all are doing well. This next round of storm is gearing up to be even worse than the first one. Temps on the back side of it are nipple shattering. It went from 31 before it hit us, dropped down to 15 during and stands at -16 at the moment. Put smudge pots around the feedlot to help the cattle a bit. Luckily, the snow isn't as wet as what hit S.D.
If any of you have fireplaces, try to use them sparingly. Use your other forms of heat for the moment. If you loose power for an extended length of time, you might need the extra fuel you saved. Stock up on water also. It's very easy to dehydrate when the temps drop. For those of you that can eat it, fatty foods (in moderation) also help out. Gives your body something to burn and helps regulate body temperature.
Here's one for the guys when it gets frigid out.(The ladies can attest to this) Pantyhose. If you have to be outside for a period of time, throw on a pair under your thermals and you'll thank me later. Don't believe it? Ask any Chicago Bears player from the 70s. Or for that matter, any Steelers, Packers or about any other player from that era that played up north.
Well, that's it for me. Everyone stay safe and warm. Be good and be careful. Talk to you later.
Hunker down, R.B! Thanks for the tips.

And don't forget to drip your faucets, particularly those on an outside wall. Open the vanity/base cabinet doors too.

It can also be used to strain paint. An ol' timer taught me that. We needed to strain some paint and he retrieved a pair from his truck. I asked how he discovered that. He said: "When the wife found a pair in the truck a couple years back..."
That's a good tip on paint straining on a couple of levels too!

Ferrerman and I have discussed this on an esteemed blog. I learned something new from your source:

"There have been other cases like Mr. Metcalf’s. In 2012, Jerry Tsai, the editor of Recoil magazine, wrote that the Heckler & Koch MP7A1 gun, designed for law enforcement, was “unavailable to civilians and for good reason.” He was pressured to step down, and despite apologizing, has not written since. In 2007, Jim Zumbo, by then the author of 23 hunting books, wrote a blog post for Outdoor Life’s website suggesting that military-style rifles were “terrorist” weapons, best avoided by hunters. His writing, television and endorsement deals were quickly put on hiatus."

They're (magazines) are private businesses -- and money prevails. No surprises there.

I SAW THAT!

The hypocrisy is deep with that crowd!

This one too. We'll see if this post makes the cut.

I really thought the guy was joshing me and I completed the joke for him. He didn't get it until I explained it.

Nowadays they sell strainer bags but that's how we did it back in the 20th century.

Good Sunday morning, BRG&'ers!
I've never warmed up to Barnes & Noble and thought maybe it was just the one near me, but I don't think so. We were in there before Christmas and it didn't have the good energy our old Borders had; it felt really sterile. Now I buy everything I can't get at the library from Amazon so I can't complain about them being gone!

Subtle humor is good and always welcome! I might have to think extra hard but I'd get it eventually;)

I was thinking earlier today when it was still a balmy 16 degrees that the approaching (really) cold wave reminds me a lot of the creeping green death plague in The Ten Commandments.

If I could, I'd give it bad judge-its.

After all, that would let it know who's in charge. Take that, bad weather!
