Goose Story O Day (July 2016)

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 by salon----comments 0 (Views:19)

Had a lot of geese hatch out this year. There are now two gangs of geese, one that has an assortment of different breeds that all hang together after working out their Who's In Charge differences, the other is a mom and dad goose with 8 goslings. Two days ago I noticed that only 7 goslings came out of the duck house. I try to count heads when they all go in, but sometimes, due to there bein..... Read More 

Luminant-Property Taxes and Actual Value (Texas Observer July 2016)

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 by salon----comments 0 (Views:32)

Texas Observer-Excellent article well worth reading in its entirety that includes other communities dealing with the same property tax issues Somervell County is with Comanche Peak. Overnight, more than 10 percent of Mount Pleasant ISD’s budget, about $4.2 million in tax revenue, simply disappeared. In the last year, Luminant has filed lawsuits contesting appraisals of its coal-fired pl..... Read More 

Luminant Document Filed with NRC in March 2016 Creating New Company

LINK As a side note, spoke to Wes Rollen, tax appraiser, about whether/if there are tax liens against Luminant. According to tax code, when property tax bills go out each year on January 1, by default everyone has a lien against their property which is released at the point the property owner pays taxes. It's, of course, up to the tax office to decide if/when to go after someone who do..... Read More

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 7/27/2016

Will I regret not getting another load of mulch for the trees and bushes? Maybe, but hard to get motivated to be out in this heat putting it around. I hope for rain in the next week. There is a large part of my makeup that finds it hard to believe that people can intentionally do unscrupulous actions. I heard about something corrupt locally yesterday and had to have it spelled out what the issu..... Read More 

Musing about rituals and elections (2016)

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 by salon----comments 0 (Views:29)

I'm unexpectedly sadder than I thought I would be today about Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic party nomination and Bernie Sanders losing. When you no longer believe in something, there's a void. When I started questioning whether god(s) existed, i spent the next 3 years doing heavy research and, on the other side, came out quite happy with my decision. In the case of the Democratic ..... Read More

Essentially, NBC5 uses an external database aggregator that is able to provide lists based on various criteria that NBC5 can then use to serve up digital content. On the flip side, NBC5 was there to sell services for those who want ..... Read More

Here's what I don't get about Bernie Sanders v Hillary Clinton on 1st day of DNC convention

Monday, July 25, 2016 by salon----comments 0 (Views:103)

I see a lot of people on Twitter who are still for Sanders EVEN THOUGH he has now endorsed HIlllary Clinton. Why? Sanders has already given up and capitulated, has Knelt Before Zod. I read a bit ago that during a roll call later, he's going to give all his delegates to Clinton. IF that is true, then the fighting going on now is a last gasp protest against Clinton. And assumes that people even ..... Read More
