Idol Fans

Ok, for all you Idol fans, this year we have someone to cheer for at our house since you Sarasotans had one last year (or whenever that was). Matt Giraud - the dueling piano guy from Kalamazoo. No, he's not one of the guys who has played at our parties, but we have heard him on numerous occasions - he goes to our church and frequently sings/plays!! Steve and I were both totally shocked and psyched about having a horse in the race so to speak. I don't know if I will go as far as voting if it gets that far, but we'll see.
For all of you who have more interesting lives and don't watch American Idol, don't mind this mindless chatter. We're just happy for our 30 seconds of fame here in the icy north.

Cold Update

continuation of last post on why global warming is a sham:
on my way to work today, ambient temperature was -18 F. There was no wind to speak of - thankfully. I've lived in Michigan 27/30 years, and never do I remember the ambient temp to be this low.

Snow Update

Just in case anyone's counting or cares, my neighbor informed me yesterday:

Normal Snowfall as of Jan 11: 72 inches
This YTD Snowfall as of Jan 11: 89.5 inches

This is with another 6-8 expected in the next day or so!! They were all crazy excited last year when we broke 100". At this rate, we'll be over that by February - that would still leave at least two to three more months of possible snow. I'm pushing the theory of an ice age at least in Michigan. Those idiots promoting global warming are just that - idiots! Maybe the ice age of the 1960's froze some of their brain cells.

As for me, I'm just relishing my new battery-powered socks that my boss gave me for Christmas. They are incredible. I do wonder what kind of strange cancer I may come down with at a later date considering I have that huge battery pack on my left hip, and a big ultrasound and battery on my right hip. At least my feet are hot! Now all I need is a battery-powered right hand glove (the other hand stays toasty:)).
