Once upon a time, people identified the god Neptune as the source of storms at sea. Today we call these storms hurricanes... the only people who still call hurricanes acts of God are the people who write insurance forms - Neil deGrasse Tyson

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 2/26/2015
Net Neutrality okayed by the FCC. Finally! I like to watch Netflix and it's been disappointing to me that there have been any internet providers at all that wanted to make two tiers of support. Thankfully, the FCC does not agree. From Consumerist.
Also, the FCC is going to allow some cities and towns to set up and expand muncipal internet services.
Interesting. Denton County replacing face to face jail visits with video chat sessions.

Still No Accountability for 501a contract- Glen Rose Medical Center-Glen Rose Healthcare Inc
I had a chance when testifying in the Best v Harper case about my blog post regarding Chip Harrison and the 501a budget to reiterate my concerns about the way Glen Rose Medical Center takes optional taxpayer money and spends it without proper accounting (You'll remember that Ray Reynolds had said before that he was not following the letter of the law regarding this contract) . At the......

Under the weather. These weather changes are kicking my butt.
The *Other* which Republicans seem to love. I've tried to figure out why, maybe it's a part of trying to *one up* everybody. Whatever the case, it sure is unamerican. Jobsanger

SLEET! No, THUNDERSLEET (never heard that term before but that describes the point when the dogs frantically woke me up this morning -thundering and lightening and sleeting!). Not going anywhere, the weather is below freezing. I'm having to work up enough snap (and layer on enough clothing) to go let out the birds, I suspect the pond is frozen. Hub and I had repaired some fences on Saturday to......

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 2/20/2015-Horse and 2 Donkeys Edition
The neighbor's horse, my old donkey and my young spotted donkey are all together in the field. Last night just the horse and the old donkey were together, hanging out, peacefully, after my friend brought them over. It was really cute because when the horse couldn't see the donkey, he'd go looking for him. I have no idea how old the first donkey is-when I got him, which was in the ......

Much of Texas has seen a good share of rain (or in some cases ice and snow) this winter, and climatic conditions appear to favor more rain as the season continues. Even so, it may take a long time before the Brazos River basin’s reservoirs refill.
In mid-February, how you fared in the drought once again depended on ......

What a great month this has been! I got a second wind this month for some outside projects. I have plans to do some extensive yard cleaning-no sooner was I mapping out some of the things I wanted to do, than it turned REALLY COLD. But mentally, I'm up for it. Also going to be getting a horse and my old donkey over here in a week or two. Pretty excited about this. My younger donkey, you might r......
