Having Flown

Just learned that Paul Weller has FIVE kids total. Gee. He used to be my hero, my god, the man I looked to for guidance and intelligence. Just read about his drunken spectacle with some girl 23. Lovely. Not. Meanwhile the people of Gaza are being brutally massacred, made possible with American tax dollars. Nobody ever asks us. Our biased media would make sure no well-informed decisions could be made even if they did.

Sadly, there is little I can do for the suffering people of Gaza. Bless all the protesters round the globe! The once-mighty Weller's embarrassing actions seem irrelevant by comparison.

Can 2008 really be ending? Gee... I am STILL working on that 1987 To-Do List.

I recommend you listen to this demo version of the Bee Gees' "Spirits Having Flown." It's what's getting me thru these days.

Many, many New Year's Goals. I got my car washed today. I think that is a good start.

Welcome the Return of the Sun!

Yay! We made it through the Solstice. Welcome the Return of the Sun. The days will get longer and Spring is on her way (well, three months, but coming!) Three nasty months of winter to endure, but the days will be longer again, day by day. Happy Marty. All hail the Sun!
