Putting our Foot on the Gas
Author: BobR    Date: 06/07/2023 12:59:27

Way way back in early 2020, Coronavirus/COVID-19 was ramping up in a big ugly way. There was no vaccine, and information about how to keep from getting it was confusing, sometimes contradictory, and rife with quack remedies (those mostly propagated by TFG). The virus itself was a lot harsher, and the real medical treatments were (in retrospect) sometimes making the symptoms worse.

Everyone was freaking out, and business were shutting down left and right. Those who could work from home did. Because of this, there was a LOT less vehicular traffic. The air and water got cleaner, and gas prices plummeted when demand fell off the chart. FOX "News" apparently saw this as problem, saying that low prices were hurting gas stations. Ultimately, the plummeting prices due to lack of demand caused OPEC to slash production, so that the supply and demand balance helped maintain the profits for the Saudis (and global oil companies).

Ridin' and Lyin'

Will no one rid us of that turbulent party? Alas, it seems not at the moment. Over the weekend there was some very interesting news, that might be the beginning of the end.

Is it a myth after all?

Climate change is real. I've seen it with my own eyes. Your growing season may vary, but in the 25 years I've been running a garden, I've seen the last frost date shift. I used to plant on Mother's Day, but now I don't dare. We had a killing frost as late as May 18 this year. I don't plant until Memorial Day now.

The Spider

So as you may have seen on my BoF page, my father passed on May 27, 2023. My relationship with him was not an easy one. It was deeply complicated. It wasn't easy. Years ago, there came a point where there was no relationship. I had come to terms with many aspects of it years ago, but when he passed, I realized those terms were just that: terms.

Tick Tock

Watching Republicans in Congress trying to fight back against a debt deal, and the last-minute timing of it reminds me of being in school, and trying to learn everything for the finals the night before the Big Test. After weeks of doing anything but, they finally have to face the music. The bill passed out of committee last night, and faces two critical votes (in the full House, and the Senate). This was essentially hammered out by President Biden and Speaker McCarthy (R-CA), with McCarthy failing to keep up with Dark Brandon.
